Attack - needs educated and eloquent responsesSubmitted by broncosplummer on Wed, 06/29/2011 - 12:35
Not only does this attack
the Pauls, but libertarian philosophy.
"The Pauls are associated with an ideology called Libertarianism. Libertarians oppose government social programs and restrictions on the capitalist market . They advocate hyper-individualism, viewing any kind of solidarity as a form of much-despised “collectivism.”
By railing against “big government,” libertarians are able to capitalize on a mistaken tendency to view the abuses of the capitalist state as simply examples of overreaching authority rather than a concerted assault by the capitalist class. On certain issues, like the Patriot Act, the war on drugs and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Ron and Rand Paul can even seem progressive. However, Libertarianism represents a deadend for working people and distorts the key political questions facing oppressed people."
