why were these three men so . . .

eager to be on Glenn Beck's show?

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

How to unite Libertarians? That depends...

It depends on what you mean by Libertarian. If you mean Anarchist; just hold up a black flag and start screaming: "You're all a bunch of sheep and retards!" Before you know it, you'll be surrounded by Anarchists, aping you, and cheering you on.

If by "Libertarian" you mean somebody who advocates for and defends liberty, you'll need to offer people the proper definition of government, something that uses collective force to defend liberty, ie to serve justice.

You'll have to offer people justice rather than injustice, and the people that matter will hear you and listen.

There's NO useful purpose for Anarchists unless your agenda is to destroy, and then uniting them (using them) is as easy as screaming: "I'm an enemy of the state!" It's like a sirens song that gets them every time, and as victims of causality, they're doomed to be united and destroyed by justice.

is laughing at your summary, and so am I. :-)

Clueless,, just clueless

A nation of sheep breeds a government of wolves.

Ummmm kaaaayyyyyyy


GLENN BECK IS NOT A LIBERTARIAN AND HE IS NOT WANTED IN THIS PARTY!!!! BEAT IT KOOK!!!

That's Easy

Take their means to provide financial and personal security for their familiies as a whole and they will join together. A better question is how did someone get me to watch another video of this propagandist spewing his crap. Beck's quandry is not how to get the masses to support true liberty but how to get free minded people to compromise their principles in order to make them more pallatable to those that feel the need to use government violence as a tool in accomplishing their own versions of social engineering. If Beck really believed in liberty he would have no problem accepting what others do with that liberty and leave them to be the owners of the effects of what they do with that liberty, be it positive or negative.

I guess I'm not alone

It is obvious he is

It is obvious he is attempting to hijack the liberty movement like he merged the teaparty under the establishment Republican tent.
What's with the skull on the side table and the skull and bones pillow and skull and bones on the back wall? Weird.

FEMA camps?

This is a trick question

We are already together, as individuals, against Glen Beck. He just hasn't admitted it yet. :)

What is this "We" BS ?

.

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

As far away from Glenn Beck as possible?

Would be my personal preference. I hope YAL isn't suckered in.

When the bait is there, we can't come together fast enough. There is a perfect example of how to bring us together in Ron Paul.

Be excellent.

Integrity means having to say things that people don't want to hear & especially to say things that the regime doesnt want to hear -RonPaul

They will be.

Everyone wants to be on TV. Until they learn it's better they never were on TV.

There's a sucker born every minute.

Togetherness :-)

You can bring democrats together. You can bring republicans together. They represent mob rule. Speaking for only myself, nobody can bring me anywhere. If/when I see a political representative that is inline with my views, I will support that person.

Otherwise, leave me alone.

IMO, glenn beck seeks ratings and/or other motive. He knows NOTHING about Liberty, or liberty.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

what a question...

"how do we bring individuals together?" well. first you have to ask other questions... like "why do we want to 'bring them together'?" and what does "bring them together" mean?

honestly... people, individuals, libertarians, etc will "come together" when they are compelled to do so, when a need arises. "bringing people together", to me, is just statist talk. "hey, let's BRING people together." ...
what if they don't want to? "too bad"?

are they really trying to ask, "how do we convince people to fight for our agenda" ? because honestly, that is what it is... when people are hungry, they seek food... does anyone have to force the average person to seek food when they are hungry?

I use Blue Wave, but don't expect one of THEIR silly taglines.

"why do we want to 'bring them together'?"

"why do we want to 'bring them together'?"

Save money by making fewer train trips to the internment/re-education/labor/death camps I would imagine.

The first step is for phonies

The first step is for phonies like him to shut up, stop blathering his pseudo-liberty talk and listen to some respected voices within our movement. Next, phonies like him need to stop trying to take over the movement....its great for him to give people a platform to reach the masses, but stop trying to herd the movement to his neocon solutions.

Probably wants to know if he can Beck-stab us some more.

Remember that movie Super-Troopers where they are trying to say "Meow" the most to the bewildered civilians? Beck is probably trying to do the same where he gets trust, and bones us again for like the 5 or more time.

Just ignore him.

double post

..

lol well having Jack Hunter

lol well having Jack Hunter on there kinda defeats the purpose. However, anything that brings people to libertarianism is good

Why is that? What positions

Why is that? What positions does Jack Hunter have that aren't libertarian?

Glenn Beck is a neocon in Libertarian clothing.

"Glenn Beck: How Do We Bring Libertarians Together ?"

Libertarians are already together (or as together a Libertarians get, seriously it's like hurding cats some days, but I guess that's the nature of Liberty). The only way Glenn Beck could make us more together is in opposition to Glenn Beck.

How true!

Perfect !!

Caution...

...is in order here. Conversations like these are great (is there more video, though? It was so full of interruptions and breaks that it barely seemed to scratch the surface of their topic).

But answer these questions:

Did Glenn absorb a lot of the energy of the Tea Party movement and redirect it? Did he take the renewed interest in the Founders and present his spin on it that left out their non-interventionist foreign policy?

If the answer is yes or even maybe, then I would say we had better use extreme caution in how we interact with him and not let him just redefine things and redirect our attentions at will.

Certainly not your job, GB.

Not your job to bring libertarians together.

Ouch

but true

SOUTHERN AVENGER

baby forumla , what the hell is this idiot talking about ? what a freaking moronic analogy.

beck is an idiot trying to jump right into being a libertarian without realizing , he himself is a paid shill

drop the shillness , drop the neocon sponsors, drop it all and start over dude

4 dudes sitting around trying to describe what libertarianism is to them

fact is glenn bashed the hell out of ron during the election for his own good reason and none of these stooges on deck with him even bring that up ??

really , forgive and forget is not my motto , sorry

"He's this eccentric Ghandi-Like figure that you cant touch with the normal bribes that people respond to."
the man Doug Wead on DR. RON PAUL

Southern "Avenger" LOL

Maybe when he was grassroots.

Now he's just building his portfolio of news appearances and articles published for his political consulting career.

S.A. has become J.B., Jr.

Here is how I would have responded

if I was there.

I am an evangelical Christian and I think the drug war is an absolute failure. It has ruined lives and wasted a lot of money and effort. I do not believe it is the government's role to punish people for hurting themselves (or in medical marijuana's case treating sickness). It is less helpful and more damaging to make drugs illegal and history has shown it does nothing to discourage their use.

I remember Ron Paul once answering a question about legalizing drugs with "what you are inferring is you know what if we legalize heroine tomorrow everybody's gonna use heroine. How many people here would use heroine if it was legal? I bet nobody would. Oh yeah I need the government to take care of me. I don't want to take heroine so I need these laws"

What it really comes down to is do we really trust freedom to work? And if we say that we need to enforce drug laws everywhere then we don't really believe in liberty.

"Once you become knowledgeable, you have an obligation to do something about it."- Ron Paul

Serously!?!?

What is everyone on here talking about!? Just having these conversations on national television is a remarkable thing and speaks loudly towards our movement.

Where you all ALWAYS libertarians? No, oh really!? What were you before you were woken up? Exactly.

The point here is that Glenn Beck may be waking up. He did a piece saying he's done with the establishement. He see's a movement that is unwavering and will continue. Now he's wanting to know what it is truly all about. Freedom!

All of these comments are silly, Jack, Glenn, anti-libertarianism. NOT PURE..Wolf in sheeps clothing, I mean come on. There is no TRUE Definition or Libertarian book we must follow, it's an intellectual movement. People wake up at different times, but they are WAKING UP.

A lot of you need to understand that. When people like Glenn Beck wake up or even give the hint that they are waking up...we are WINNING!!!

For Liberty!

Viva la R3VOLution!!!

WINNING

or being lied to.

I've heard it both ways.
