Katherine whatever your name

Katherine whatever your name is, you are Excused and Canceled. And to think I used to by that Magazine in bulk to pass out. Reason mag is on my shit list.

Turn off the TV Propaganda.

And complaint sent to the editor.

"He did not come into the world to condemn it, but to save it." - John 3:17

"Well, you know it's like I always say 'it ain't government work if you don't have to do it twice.'" - Jerry Gergich

She said he has no PLANS as president if he were to win.

But Dr. Paul has said many times that when people ask him what he would "do" as president he tells them what he would NOT do:

NOT try to "run" the economy.

NOT try to police the world

NOT tell you what to eat, drink, smoke etc

NOT tell you how to live your life.

But he WOULD declare an immediate 2-year federal income tax holiday (and then work to abolish the IRS)

He WOULD audit the FED

He WOULD abolish hundreds of unconstitutional government agencies and programs

He WOULD bring home the troops immediately

So that wench from Reason Magazine had a lot of nerve saying he can never win and that he has no plans of actually winning.

That's one hell of a "Libertarian" magazine.
Ayn Rand would NOT be happy.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

People in the state who

People in the state who "plan" are the freaking problem in the first place. We don't want other people planning our lives! Down with plans!

Kochtopus libertarian.


One quick look at her Wiki page shows she came from working at "The Weekly Standard" which is the epicenter of neocon influence. Bill Kristol.
If that doesn't tell you something, then nothing else I could write would help.

I don't know why

but women with 3 names irk me.

Yeah, plus why would anyone

Yeah, plus why would anyone want to hang on to "Mangu"?


Sounds like the name of an exotic dip.

Reason is unreasonable.

Just as unreasonable as the establishment, which says it all. Reason has been maligning Ron Paul for a long time now.

No real journalist would ever declare that a candidate cannot win.

Katherine Mangu-Ward is the Senior Editor of Reason.

Just because

she doesn't have the same love for Dr. Paul as many of us do is no reason to bust her chops in general. I've heard her talk a lot and she is a pretty solid libertarian. For me Dr. Paul is not the only argument worth debating. I want him as the POTUS (he's already my president) but understand I might not see it happen. Libertarians are already the nerds on the playground. We don't need to start picking fights with each other.

"Libertarians are already the

"Libertarians are already the nerds on the playground. We don't need to start picking fights with each other."

EXACTLY!! Why don't you tell HER that?? That's really the beef we are having with her.

if she was a liberal, conservative, Republican etc we wouldn't care much, BUT she is a so-called libertarian, so she should know better. In fact, she should be PRAISING Ron Paul for doing all that he has done for libertarianism, not mock and downplay his chances.

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...



Unfair and unbalanced...


Post your complaints on the "Freedom Watch" Facebook Page

I don't expect the Judge to stop using "Reason," but your comments will certainly discredit Mangu-Ward, Gillespie et al.

discredit gillespie..?

have you even paid attention to the amazing work he's done the past few years? working tirelessly on interviews, books, tvs, interviewing cutting edge free market economists and defending ron paul's positions at every opportunity

I don't blame gillespie

though he doesn't really know jack about Austrian economics (he's a Friedmanite, there's nothing wrong with that but he should know more about Austrianism, just as I as an Austrian know quite a bit about Chicago school). I blame chick-ward-whateverhernameis this dumb bimbo talking like the typical MSM "analyst" spouting off BS memes. She needs to be gone from the movement.

"I never submitted the whole system of my opinions to the creed of any party of men whatever in religion, in philosophy, in politics, or in anything else where I was capable of thinking for myself." - Thomas Jefferson

Not as Ron Paul, and

Not as Ron Paul, and therefore she should NOT be dismissing Dr Pal with a smirk on her face like he is some old clown who doesn't stand a chance. Nick is in charge so he needs to say or do something..

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

katherine and gillespie read like the same name to you?


i was talking about nick gillespie and you went ahead and ranted to yourself about katherine mogul.. seriously can you stop being such a schizophrenic

Reason mag must simply be a front

Looks like yet another bogus "alternative" mag. Tries to be something different, but at the end of the day it is the same old trash.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

I thought this was plenty bad

...and she got an earful from me. LOL!

It makes me angry that people of your ilk presume you know what's best for us little people. It is not media's job in any way, shape, or form to choose our political candidates for us.

Rasmussen, and other polls show Ron Paul is the most likely
candidate to defeat Obama. Why is this true? Disenchanted, anti-war, deceived and otherwise disgruntled Democrats & Independents aren't going to cross-over for any Theocrat Neo-cons. Not gonna happen. But they will cross over for Ron Paul, and they are. They're calling themselves Blue Republicans. They have awesome t-shirts, you should get one!

Also, I was wondering how long you've had the wonderful gift of telepathy, when you purport Ron Paul ''knows he's not going to win?'' Sorry but, he knows nothing of the sort. We're in it to win it.

I don't subscribe to your tabloid, but I do follow Reason on
Twitter. Not anymore.

Good day.

Here is her email: kmw@reason.com

What is Reason's land address?

I want to send and old fashioned letter.

Yes, please BUY this wonderful libertarian BOOK! We all must know the History of Freedom! Buy it today!

"The System of Liberty: Themes in the History of Classical Liberalism" ...by author George Smith --
Buy it Here: http://www.amazon.com/dp/05211820

I wouldn't sent it to her...

Send it to the editor, if you can.

Sending it to her inbox gives her the option to delete it. Don't give her that opportunity.

Remember this one?

David Harsanyi's "Ron Paul Delusion" after Ron Paul won the 2010 CPAC straw poll: http://reason.com/archives/2010/02/24/the-ron-paul-delusion
The comments are hilarious!

Harsanyi not a libertarian

Having been subjected to Harsanyi when he wrote for the Denver Post, I can assure you that he is not even remotely close to being a libertarian. He's an foreign interventionist, hysterically anti-muslim republican like his Denver Post comrade Mike Rosen.


agree more.

Kathrine is as dumb as a post. Kathrine has an agenda.
Never heard of reason magazine either.. that should say something.

Treason Magazine is full of a bunch of establishment beltway libtard elitist whores like this gal. They did this crap in '08 as well. Anything to get on TV eh.

Mike Riggs a editor for Reason was Ron Paul positve on the Big Picture with Tom Hartman tonite. I'll post a link when the video goes up

I am on a late train

Coming back from a book signing for declaration of independents with matt welch and nick g. From reason. They had nothing but good things to say about him. I think you are over reacting. Libertarians are suppose to believe in free speech also. She can express her opinion however she wants. We can't and should not be threatend by descent. it makes us what we claim to be opposing.
