Justin Raimondo: Ron Paul vs the Naysayers


"Yet these are minor bumps in the road, more instructive than substantial: when the history of the libertarian movement in this era is written, it is Paul and his supporters who will be honored as pioneers, and the Ed Cranes and Matt Welches who will be reduced to a footnote.

Raimondo is a giant in our movement.

He's been doing great work for so long, truly a warrior for peace and liberty.

If anyone can spare a few bucks to send, AntiWar.com is having trouble paying the bills. Please help if you can.

Justin has been on the barricades

since the mid-70's at least. I like how he's toned down his writing style in recent years. He's still plenty lively, just more effective.
