Are Ron Paul Republicans hijacking the libertarian movement?Submitted by Neotheone on Fri, 11/30/2012 - 16:04
"Libertarians started the Tea Party movement and mainstream Republican Party operatives hijacked it.
Dissident young liberals started the Occupy movement and mainstream Democratic Party operatives hijacked it.
Robert Taylor, who self-identifies as "Libertarian" on his About page at PolicyMic acknowledges all of this in "Ron Paul Liberty Movement Will Outlast the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street." Yet he barely mentions the word "libertarian" and never acknowledges the Libertarian Party or Gary Johnson as being part of the "Liberty Movement." It is only Ron Paul's Liberty Movement."
