Ron Paul's Election Will Hurt LibertarianismSubmitted by SONICMASD on Tue, 03/27/2012 - 12:47
I was watching Jacob Spinney's youtube channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/JacobSpinney?ob=0&feature=result...) last night and came across a video where he says the following:
Paraphrasing: I think Ron Paul's election might hurt the spread of libertarianism because the great depression 2.0 is going to hit during the next administration and if Ron Paul is president they will blame laissez faire and the free market. They won't listen to him when he states that he saw this all coming and that we have to let it play out. The only thing he'll be able to do is veto bills. Even if he introduces legislation, by the time it gets to his desk it will be so watered down and edited that he'll have to veto his own bill. He won't be able to stop the Federal Reserve, only the Congress can do that, and the FED will make the depression much worse and thus, make Paul look even worse.
It's a very interesting way of looking at things. Your thoughts?
