Libertarian hero, Ron Paul is organizing a private meeting at his house in Texas this weekend. It has a familiar tone. Activists, libertarian thinkers, leaders, politicians, and even a few Hollywood stars will be in attendance! Why? To raise money for the libertarian cause, and to propel Rand Paul into the White House. We are beginning to see the same thing that happened with the Tea Party, happen with the Libertarian Movement.

In the coming months you will see Town Hall meetings, libertarian activists on TV, Rallies, Press Conferences, and certain members of the media thinking positively about Libertarian thought. This is the most dangerous over-looked meeting in modern politics. I think we will look back at this meeting in history and realize it was when the Libertarians actually banned together to form a “reputable” voice in politics.

Ron Paul has always done this.

I remember for years and years Ron Paul said the Federal government has no jurisdiction under the Constitution on the abortion issue. Then, when he ran on the Republican ticket for President, he decided the constitution was totally irrelevant to anything and wanted the federal government at act to stop abortions.

Just another hack politician, nothing else. He just has a different style of it, that's all. A way to capture the blind loyalties of angry white men.

The libertarian party would only be just if applied in the right context keeping universal rights to healthcare for everyone equal education for everyone and a ending of usa unjust action in other country. personally i think libertarian ideology is flawed and just highlights so bad points about the current government and in reality a libertarian society would be on of immense greed and inequity reply

if you are looking for freebies and handouts, the LP probably isn't for you.

My first point then reply to that you can not claim to want a libertarian society when you wont respond to points made e.g. universal equal health care and that society may turn out even more selfish than it is presently

I doubr many will see any of these metings because most people are smart enough to not care. These meetings are no more dangerous than Bubba and Jethro meeting back in the barn for a quicky.

so it's more selfish to want a system where you pay for the services rendered to you... but less selfish if you desire a system where other people pay for your ****.
alrighty then.:lol:


listen, an argument can be made for UHC along libertarian principles, but this sophomoric babbling about selfishness is simpleminded nincompoopery.

in any event, don't expect the LP do suddenly embrace the platform of the Socialist party ... you'll be setting yourself up for disappointment.

ya see people, this is how you do it... no need to insult or make stupid **** up... if you hate something, you just try to render it harmless/stupid/ unimportant so noone pays attention to it... as an additional benefit, nothing you say has to be truthful and you can't be made to substantiate.

Even if Rand Paul was elected to the White House, it won't mean that much. The President's powers are to enforce laws, and to enforce those laws that Congress has written.

It's only when a libertarian majority is elected to Congress to rescind all the federal laws that libertarians disagree with will any major libertarian policies be enacted.

Human being should have the right to free health care and education. 1 thing if you even know basic sociology the cleaner is as crucial to society as the stall owner and should have health care and what your party is proposing is in fact dangerous and off course what i am saying is not comptly coherent but i am questioning your ideology and yes a believe a can win people like you over what you need is education as it is obvious not fully aware or maybe you have inward problems which should not be reflective of social policy
