I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

What The Ron Paul Newsletters Story Is Really All About

by @ 3:26 pm on January 13, 2008. Filed under 2008 Election, Politics, Ron Paul

From yours truly in a comment to this post at The Liberty Papers:

Let me be blunt

It should be blindingly obvious by now that Ron Paul is not going to be President. He’s not going to win a single state primary, and the two delegates he got out of Iowa may be just about all he has at the convention. He won’t have a prime-time speaking slot either.

The question now isn’t selecting a President, it’s what happens to the cause for liberty after Ron Paul.

The best thing that could happen for liberty would be for the entire Paleo-libertarian Rockwell crowd to be discredited by all of this.

    What’s wrong with Lew Rockwell? And I know Paul won’t win, but I can’t find any other candidate that even comes close.

  2. David,

    It’s a long story, but basically Rockwell isn’t a libertarian.

  3. David Wilson says:

    I got a slightly liberal slant from his site, and he seems to be a little too jazzed about Paul. I still look up to the liberty papers though. You kind of got me started in blogging.
