Huntsman can take a long walk off a short pier.

Huntsman can take a long walk off a short pier. He did all he could to torpedo Ron Paul in the primaries. He is no friend of liberty or integrity.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

The Libertarian Vote?

Get hosed, home boy.

What makes you and all the other neocon chumps who are lamenting this loss think the GOP is entitled to the Libertarian vote, anyway? As if the current GOP is *anything like* a truly conservative - in the Robert Taft / Barry Goldwater sense of the word - organization? You guys wouldn't stick to a sound conservative principle if it smacked you in the back of the head.

It's the Libertarian Party that ought to be courting the votes of Republicans who are sick and tired of your big government, crony capitalist, warfare statist, religious right bedroom police and War on Drugs nonsense.

Weren't we considered a small fringe minority?

Yet now it's important to them that they win us over. Of course , only after Ron Paul retired from politics

These people suck balls... I don't care for any of them.

If the media were so good at voicing opinions we would all know a private cartel is running our monetary system by now....

of course they will drone on for four years until they almost have the diagnosis and then another guy like Romney becomes prom king and the dance starts all over again...

"What we're concerned about?"

John Huntsman is attempting to define Libertarians and tell America that what we care about is; Gay marriage, the environment(Carbon taxes?), and enforcing Austerity.

This isn't how you earn a Libertarians vote John Huntsman.

Excellent interview

Excellent points. Thanks for posting.


They talk all around the Ron Paul issue without ever mentioning him. But that's what they're talking about.

Also nice to hear them calling out the "Political Entertainment" complex.

All art is only done by the individual. The individual is all you ever have, and all schools only serve to classify their members as failures. E.H.

Yes ok to talk about libertarianism

As long as you dont talk about Ron Paul, gold, states rights, end the fed and elimiation of the income tax
