The Secret is Out!

It appears that someone suspects a bit of anarchy lurking within the Ron Paul message. Union Leader, a New Hampshire newspaper, posted an article online about the GOP debate that took place a few days ago. In the comments section of that article, we find one reader's dire warning:

Ron Paul is espousing extremely Libertarian points of view. While I have nothing against the Libertarians and I agree with them on many issues, Ron Paul goes to an extreme. In my view a vote for Ron Paul is a vote for anarchy (both here and abroad).

God damn it, I hope he's right.

FWIW:
From the 9/5 debate:"I'm saying we should take our marching orders from our Constitution!"
I am pretty certain that he believes that.

Yes, I think he does. While its still minarchism, its far better than what we have going on today.

Im not gonna vote for Ron Paul (I wouldnt vote for anyone), but Im hoping that he wins, since we all know that SOMEONE will win in 08 one way or the other.

Paul's first State of the Union
message:

"I'm here tonite to tell you I'm
an anarchist.

Tomorrow this bummint is closed.

All federal offices will have iron
bars welded on them by the end of
the month.

Washington will be sold to
the highest bidder to be turned
into a theme park in an attempt
to pay off the debt with the
proceeds.

All govt property is now up for
bid.

Cheers..."

Maybe someone can advise him
there's no other way.

Ron Paul is not an anarchist, at least that what he told a group of economists and others at a lecture in Las Vegas a few years ago.

Heavily influenced by Ludwig von Mises, Murray Rothbard, and other Austrian economists.
