The Liberty Revolution Reaches Scotland

In the wake of Texas Congressman Ron Paul's Goldwater-esque run for the presidency, many groups around the world have coalesced online with a single goal: to defeat the establishment. It's true, there is always going to be a certain degree of irony when a group of free market anti-government libertarians form a political party. But when they do, you can be sure they'll do it in style.

Having left Ireland to start a business in Scotland a year ago, I was delighted to discover that libertarians were beginning to organize here in the land of Adam Smith. Mostly these would be small gatherings in pubs and living rooms, and more often than not, over the internet. As many Ron Paul supporters will attest, if the mainstream media have anything to say about it, the Revolution will not be televised. But it sure will be typed. A far cry from what you'd expect from your average straight-laced political party, Scottish Libertarians have a mildly subversive, even punkish image, which is mostly down to the work of Indie Venture, a professional graphic designer and communications officer for the Party.

Not to steal your thunder,

Not to steal your thunder, but you might be happy to hear that there's also a Dutch Libertarian Party that will be running in the Dutch national elections in september. :-)

Liberty & Peace is a Universal idea :-D

The failure of capitalism ushered in socialism,

which has failed. If Karl Marx and the international elite have their way the next step will be fascism and communism, with a small billionaires club living like kings and pharaohs with what is left of the population as their slaves. Oh Yes! The long planned agenda to rule the world!

As Ron Paul has said: NO WAY! Enough!

Liberty will be the next step!

"capitalism"?

The failure of corporatism ushered in socialism. Both are forms of statism.

Agree, but maybe

corporatism is what grew out of capitalism in the hands of the greedy and unscrupulous.

I'm a big SNP supporter!

:)

cool

I'd like to hear SNP stands for the Scottish

Nonaggression Party, but I suppose that's not it.

Nonagression is part of the platform.

Scottish weaponry will be for defense only. Not invasion.

Woot

Woot for Scotland! =)
