EPJ: Why So Hard on Rand?Submitted by Neotheone on Sat, 02/02/2013 - 14:36
"Because of this, and his high profile, and the likelihood that he will seek the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, it is important that it is made clear that Rand is not a libertarian. Otherwise many who are just learning about libertarianism may get the mistaken belief that the positions Rand holds are libertarian positions. When people search for the name, "Rand Paul" or search for "Rand Paul libertarian," I want them to have the chance to come across posts, as opposed to the ones above, that make clear when Rand is holding non-libertarian positions. No one would mistake positions of Senator Barbara Boxer as being regularly libertarian. That would be different for many with Rand."
