Rothbard On Ron Paul vs. Gary JohnsonSubmitted by Marc Clair on Mon, 10/01/2012 - 13:43
As the Presidential election advances into debate season, it is timely and appropriate to look at the qualities Rothbard preferred in a Libertarian Party candidate and his opinion regarding Dr. Paul’s credibility as a candidate during the 1988 election.
This video is from 1989 and shows Rothbard answering a question about his support for Ron Paul’s Presidential run as the Libertarian Party’s candidate in 1988. It is surprising that there were Libertarians in 1988 who did not support Dr. Paul’s Presidential run. Even more shocking is the idea that people would not expect Rothbard to support Dr. Paul. Murray defends Dr. Paul’s credentials during this brief minute and a half long video.
Imagine if Murray Rothbard was still around today to see Ron Paul knock the socks off the establishment in 2008 and 2012.
Perhaps if Murray was still around he would have pushed the good Doctor to head line the Libertarian Party ticket, instead of Governor Gary Johnson, after watching the blatant disrespect displayed by the GOP elites during the primary.
