1. They created a caricature of libertarianism (all about legalizing pot and prostitution) and tried to pin that on Rand to discredit him.

2. I definitely lost a couple IQ points as a result of watching that retarded $hit.

SORRY FOR THE CAPS , FOX PISSES ME OFF

OK IT STARTS OFF WITH MEXI LOOKING BITCH TALKING

EXCUSE ME DUMB LATINA BITCH OR WHATEVER THE FUCK YOU ARE

YEAH DR. PAUL THE GOOD OL' FLIP FLOPPER

WHAT CRACK IS THIS BITCH SMOKING AND WHAT BROTHEL HOUSE DID THEY YANK HER OUT OF AND GIVE HER A SEAT AT THE TABLE ?
AND WHERE DID SHE GET IT THAT RAND OR DR. PAUL WOULD EVER BE FOR TOTALLY LEGALIZING PROSTITUTION.

SHE IS CLEARLY A MISTAKEN IDIOT AND THESE ARE ALL NEO-CON TALKING POINTS TO MUTE LIBERTARIAN IDEAS AND PHILOSOPHY.

RAND PAUL IS NOT A LIBERAL AND LIBERTARIAN DOES NOT MEAN BEING A LIBERAL.

OK WHO THE FUCK IS THIS NEXT DOOFUS ASKING IF RAND HAS A PERM , WHAT HORSE SHIT IS FOX SHOVELING ITS VIEWERS HAHA,

GLAD I DON'T EVER TUNE IN AT ALL, OTHERWISE I WOULD BE A BRAIN DEAD MORON LIKE THE REST OF THESE TWITS ON THIS SHOW.

"SPEAKS HIS MIND , SAYS WHAT IT IS" UMM THAT WAS DOCTOR PAUL YOU MORON YOU ALL CHOSE TO SUCK MITT ROMNEYS BIG TOE.

AND LASTLY THE DUMB BLONDE CUZ YOU GOTTA HAVE ONE OF THOSE AT YOUR TABLE.
"POLITICAL ALA CART" UMM NO YOU MORON BLONDE , RAND SAYS LIBERTARIAN MINDED REPUBLICAN BECAUSE HE HAS ALREADY CEDED THE NOTION THAT HE HAS TO GO ALONG TO GET ALONG AND UNFORTUNATELY IT MEANS SUCKING UP TO ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICANS AND SEEING HOW FAR THEY LET HIM GO.

THESE IDIOTS ALL WANT A POLITICIAN WITH DR. PAUL IDEAS BUT NOT DR. PAUL OR HIS FAMILY , AGAIN MENTAL MORONS THESE PEOPLE ARE.

IF YOU CANT TELL FROM THIS VIDEO REPUBLICANS ARE DEAD IN THE WATER WHEN IT COMES TO IDEAS, CLEARLY ALL IDIOTS.

Only fiscally conservative

Only fiscally conservative libertarianism will take us into a prosperous future. We are being proven right every day folks. Keep it up.

Truth before all else.....it is what will allow us to emerge with dignity and honor.

Hmm ...

... Mark Levin ... Glenn Beck ... Fox ... The Five ... Karl Rove (specifically targeting liberty candidates) ...

... they know we are standing in their way.

Help me out here people

I'm writing a facebook post in response to the idea presented at the beginning of this video. Give me another example of an unsavory freedom that the Constitution permits:

"Libertarianism has as much to do with legalizing pot and prostitution as the Constitution does with legalizing satan worshipping and ________________. You’re COMPLETELY missing the point if you think supporting freedom means supporting everything people do with their freedom."

You got it backwards ...

... the Constitution does not "permit" freedoms; rather, it creates and limits the power of the federal government.

Read the 9th Amendment.

I'm glad they tagged that vital prostitution issue

Since prostitution represents one of the great libertarian priorities, above killing people overseas, the debt, fiat currency, etc.,

Oh, and that it is already legal at the federal level (see: NV)

Gutfield is often identified as a libertarian

The jerky younger guy in the center-right is often identified as a beltway cosmotarian type. Reason magazine has done several interviews with him.

So any talk of

RON Paul was a taboo of immense proportions but discussion of RAND Paul is acceptable chatter?

Makes me love Ron Paul even more.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.
Ron Paul - The Revolution

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul

acceptable?

They are presenting Rand as a libertarian and that's the key word for KILL inside the GOP.

Its really weird, I didnt

Its really weird, I didnt watch the above clip but I did watch another one earlier in the week and they were calling Rand "libertarian" but the coverage was totally positive. Maybe just the smear word is enough, I dunno.

If Fox news and Glenn Beck

If Fox news and Glenn Beck are coming out in "support" of Rand Paul, doesn't that raise anyones red flags??? Mine are flying sky high. Rand is just enough pro-war..and just enough libertarian to get the average republican joe. I'm not the average republican joe..and Rand is not his father

Since when is Rand labelled a

Since when is Rand labelled a libertarian?

Since Rubio is paid to pretend to be tea party

and Rand isn't the GOP pick.. he's labled libertarian to turn off theose who are going to conventions and voting in liberty candidates..

Libertarians are unwanted in the GOP.. but since we are the future, and no one can stop an ideas whose time has come.. they will waste money on Rubio and MSM. We are winning!

They were enthusiastically

They were enthusiastically ready, but there was no election in 2012 and Faux News continues to peddle the lie that there was. Faux News has nothing to do with news.

Unfortunately the 2008 and

Unfortunately the 2008 and 2012 elections proved that America is not ready for a libertarian president. Most Americans still want their entitlements, even though they are all Ponzi schemes that will go bust anyway. More Americans than ever before work for government, and want to keep their cushy jobs and benefits. Most "conservatives" still believe that a foreign policy of forever finding new places to bomb is needed for our security. And the bottom line -- most Americans really don't want the Constitution to be upheld.

As for Rand Paul, while he's better than most of the senators he's still has a long way to go on foreign policy -- I like his dad a lot more.

What the media continues to miss.. Economic/Fiscal Policy

Am I wrong or does the msm/fox seem to think that the only difference between Libertarians and Republicans is their views on social issues and foreign policy?

Does Romney agree with Libertarians that we should end the Federal Reserve System? Does Paul Ryan agree with Libertarians that we should not bailout banks? Does Sanotrum agree with Libertarians that we should balance the budget, and not continue to raise the debt ceiling? Chris Christie agrees that we should make deep cuts in Medicare and Social Security and eventually work our way out of these failed programs? Does McCain agree that we should stop subsidizing big business? Or any business?

Its becoming clear as day

Its becoming clear as day that Rand Paul is Bought off. His looks, and voice tone has changed to me since 2010, and he just seems more like a snake, therfore i will not vote for him. Oh, and all the other shit i dont agree with that he did in congress.

Lol, down voting me does not

Lol, down voting me does not change the fact that he is a snake in the grass. His voting record is NOT libertarian, let alone conservative. Check the facts then downvote idiots.

Same.

I checked. You're bunk. Make a new screen name and try, try again.

Lima-1, out.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

Your an idiot, ive been here

Your an idiot, ive been here since 09. You try again. Rand paul will never be Ron paul because he's been bought. i hope im wrong but dont think so.

I checked the facts and then

downvoted you...

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom — go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, an

which ones?

Which idiots do you want us to downvote?

Free market capitalism isn't right for America because it works better. It's right because it's free (and it works better).

Check your facts

before labeling people idiots. You could be standing in a glass house. Turns out just REGISTERING to vote is treason.

Check the facts then down-vote.

Im just wondering how the

Im just wondering how the establishment will accept rand and not ron. Kinda weird how rands getting all kinda love from the media and etc...
This "love" started after they got him to vote for the Iran sanctions. Looks like the true liberty movement is gone.
