Ron Paul and the Liberal Fascination
Last night I was watching “Real Time” with Bill Maher, and Tucker Carlson was one of the guest. (An annoying guest but still a guest.) He brought up an interesting point about the liberals that are going crazy over Ron Paul.
According to the Heritage Dictionary a Libertarian is:
1. One who advocates maximizing individual rights and minimizing the role of the state.
2. One who believes in free will.
Ron Paul although running on the Republican ticket is a Libertarian at heart, and as a Libertarian he should believe in total rule by the Constitution. Which would mean doing away with all government founded social programs. (Not exactly what liberals believe in?)
Maybe eighty-five or ninety years ago, that idea was the right one, but to be a TRUE Libertarian in this day and age well in my opinion would be well…..chaos. So I did a little research on some of the Bills and stance that Ron Paul put forth, and found some interesting things. However the major thing I found was, Tucker Carlson misrepresented Ron Paul.
The first thing I found was a Bill that Ron Paul introduced to the House of Representatives, in 2001. Which called for the government to give lower income children a chance at a better education with a 3,000 dollar tax credit.
If you go to the Ron Paul site listed here, Ron Paul you will see some of the reasons I fill that Ron Paul was misrepresented by Tucker Carlson.
I wanted to be known that I do not work for, or plan on voting for Ron Paul, but do feel that all candidates should not be misrepresented in or by the media.
