Why a lot of people on DailyPaul aren't actually LibertarianSubmitted by quickbrownfox on Sun, 06/10/2012 - 17:32
A lot of people on here claim they are "Libertarian" and all for the idea of freedom; freedom of choice and the freedom to do whatever you want as long as you don't harm someone else.
There has been a lot of controversy and differing opinions regarding Rand Paul's recent endorsement of Mitt Romney. Some of us think it was a brilliant and absolutely necessary political move while others think it was a compromise that should not have been made. Regardless of what you think about it, stop trying to control Rand Paul. His endorsement is his own, he can endorse whomever he wants. You are able to endorse whomever you want to for POTUS, Rand is entitled to the exact same. Regardless of what his motivations were, in a free society Rand has the same rights as everyone else, and for you to attack him or anyone else for their opinions makes you the virtual opposite of a Libertarian because you are trying to control the actions of another while reserving the freedom to act as you wish in the same regard.
Criticize his decision if you wish, but at the end of the day his opinion is his own and he is entitled to it just as you are. Stop being so hypocritical, no one cares if you will never vote for Rand Paul now because you don't understand his strategy or you don't agree with it. Everyone is tired of these post after post after post of people b*tching and analyzing his decision. It is obviously going to be a major issue within the movement, let's agree to disagree and move forward. It's his opinion and his endorsement, he can do whatever he wants to and it can't be wrong; just as your own opinion about something can't be wrong.
