Justin Raimondo: Ron Paul vs the NaysayersSubmitted by BmoreBrawler on Sat, 02/27/2010 - 02:29
"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. The intellectual emptiness of their "libertarianism" is all too apparent: they have reduced the freedom philosophy to an affectation. Paul, on the other hand, has expanded it into a mass movement, one that is reaching more people every day with its unabashedly radical message.
Yes, the future belongs to us – if we can muster the focus to ignore the naysayers, and take it."
