I try to change people every day. Do You?

Remember the days...

...When we were all united by one man - Ron Paul? It's disheartening now to see all these faces dividing us.

*sigh*

And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes, I'll see you on the dark side of the moon.

Glenn Beck is a clown. The

Glenn Beck is a clown. The only thing I will give him credit for is the talk of abandoning the GOP for LP. And that's where it needs to end... let his lemmings read and do a little research on their own...
(While the Tea Party has always stood for personal responsibility, free markets and limited government, it has been co-opted to an extent by evangelicals/fundys. I was curious to see where the split would be... LP or Constitution Party...
GB mentioning libertarianism is a good thing, but that is where is involvement should end (except for his vote at he ballot box)...

Anyone kissing Glenn Beck's

Anyone kissing Glenn Beck's ass is not a libertarian. I am sorry folks but I hope sincerely anyone that does kiss his ass catches a STD and passes it on to their friends.

Libertarian???!!! HELLO????

Mayhaps Glenny needs to read the non-agression principle...

libertarian...sheesh.

The golden rule

Glenn Beck scoffs at the Golden Rule.

The founders would be ashamed at us for what we are putting up with.

Some say they're going to

Some say they're going to just ignore Beck. I wouldn't advise that. Unfortunately Beck does have a decent fan base and I don't want to spar with a bunch of neocons who say they're libertarians a year from now.

What I'm going to be doing and encourage others as well, is monitor his network. Anything that requires the flame of Liberty to show the truth, I'll be there.

Beck would love for us to ignore him! His fans aren't just going to say they're Beck libertarians all of a sudden, it will take a little brainwashing and we should be there to fight back with the real ideas of Liberty.

That's how a co-opt attempt works. He's just going to press real hard on the spending cut mantra and a few not as controversial social issues so his base will be more open to it, and say that's Liberty. Now all of a sudden a lot of people are added to our movement. But they're just neocons who truly believe in cutting spending and no other libertarian ideas; aka Tea Partiers aka Glenn Beck libertarians. So now we have a decent chunk of the movement who claim they're part of the movement but really aren't. And now we have infighting and have to deal with the possibility of more being brought in by the Beck libertarians.

Pretty soon the real libertarians are the minority in the movement, being funded by the Koch brothers, and trumpeting Sarah Palin as a victory for Liberty when she get the GOP nomination.

That nightmare scenario is why you don't just ignore Beck and you close any threat of that happening right now!!

I think Beck is

the enemy sent to *try* to infiltrate and co-opt, like the Tea Party was.

I absolutely do not see any real Libertarians falling for this - at all.

Most real Libertarians (most intelligent humans - period) know that Glenn Beck is a poseur, and a flip-flopping psycho liar.

His fans: Aren't they mostly neo-con, Israel-firster, Evangelical types? Glenn Beck and his followers absolutely despised we Libertarians/Liberty Republicans during the election. Now, all of a sudden they're supposed to turn Libertarian and move to his new Jonestown, Beck's Belch?

Personally, I see this venture of his being an enormous flop, and I will celebrate when it is.

When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign: that the dunces are all in confederacy against him. ~J. Swift

Beck's Belch!!

LMAO, I think you got that spot on Betty, spot on!

Our Purposes ...

... are served every time a mind is opened to reason. Once opened, these minds are not easily duped.

Beck is a poser, but we should celebrate the positive attention good ideas receive and NOT IGNOR our opportunities to aid the conversion process.

He's a cynical marrionette

He doesn't care what tune the band is playing as long as gets to carry the baton in the front row. Not going to watch or pay attention at all.

Beck is scum

Beck is scum

Beck is a neoconatarian.

Beck is a neoconatarian.

No Politician or media at the head

Can be our leader unless his name is Ron Fucking Paul.

It cracks me up

It cracks me up (in a sad way) to see so many people jump to the defense of Alex Jones acting like a psycho, and then turn around and condemn Glenn Beck for "tainting" or co-opting the libertarian message. If you see Alex Jones as an ally to liberty, then you have no place trying to "cast out" Glenn Beck. Is Glenn a "pure" libertarian? No, of course not. But he is a gateway drug (so to speak) for many many people, so at worst he does as much harm as he does good.

What a sad sight. A post

What a sad sight. A post with valid concerns and people vote it down. I thought the DP community was better than this.

wonder if this guy is a paid

wonder if this guy is a paid troll... watch your backs boys these are dirty fellows that will rot in hell

Did Alex Jones call Ron Paul

Did Alex Jones call Ron Paul supporters terrorists?

Hurt feelings

We're not talking about whether or not you have to like Glenn Beck or whether or not you have to give him a pass on everything he has said (for the record, I don't like Alex Jones). Just because you don't like someone doesn't mean they are your sworn enemy and can only do evil on this earth. I'm not alone in thinking Alex Jones' style is often harmful to the liberty movement, but I also accept that he does good as well. I'm just saying I see Glen Beck in a similar fashion, so put away the torches and pitchforks.

ill defend Alex Jones... he

ill defend Alex Jones... he is the only one who drew the line in the sand... he is the only one who said shut up if you take our guns there will be war,,,, so many paid trolls across this website,, luckly I know my liberty activists who probably dont like how AJ presented himself but happy he finally told the gun freaks off

I'm not defending Alex Jones

I'm not defending Alex Jones by any means, but I've seen Glenn's tv shows and heard him on the radio. I've loosely followed him since 2007. I see right through this joker. Like a previous poster said, Glenn Beck is FOX news'/ Clear Channels' attempt to co-opt the Liberty movement. I wouldn't call him a sworn enemy, but he sure isn't a friend.

So ignore him

So ignore Glenn Beck and recruit his supporters. The main positive thing Glenn does is that he encourages people to look outside the political box. This is a very hard thing to do, and just breaking them out of their status quo thinking to some small degree is a monumental accomplishment. If we actually engage these people and act as guides on their trip down the rabbit hole then does it really matter who got them to crack their eyes open? I say we have more to gain by being friendly with his supporters and building on common beliefs than lamenting how horrible Glenn Beck is (when he is far closer to a libertarian than most other media personalities).

This is a pretty good point.

This is a pretty good point. If Beck convinces his fans they are libertarians, then they will immediately be drawn to Rand Paul, the only candidate regarded as a libertarian.

Beck is bought and paid for

Beck is bought and paid for by the establishment, intended to co-opt the liberty movement.

Glenn Beck said David Barton from Wallbuilders...

...is helping him with his "theme park"; I started collecting 19th century textbooks because of David Barton..

The duped evangelicals, ignorant of their Bible's, and even more suckers to K-street pro-family lobbying groups that promise to end homosexuality and abortion by continuing to put anti-Christ statist central planners in government; DESERVE what they get....

Leave them be, gang.....don't get baited into the Alex Jones patriotism versus the Michele Bachman Tea Party patriotism battle with them...they will not learn until they study biblical separation from false apostles and evil men, and put that together with the book of Proverbs and the lives of our signers.

When people who profess to be about truth, actually bare the fruit of accepting the truth for what it is, and EXPOSE error and deceit; we might get past the one-upsmanship game.

Alex Jones' media empire has a lot of money/funding, and so does Glenn Beck and his ilk and allies....let these pied-pipers fight it out while we watch from the stands! Instead of us being in their colosseum, let's demote them to being our minions ... Let them bankrupt each other....abandon them both NOW! We don't need either of them.

CLOWN Face Glenn Beck

Maybe we'll actually see real tears from Glenn when his phony libertarian news network tanks.
