Smug Walter Block, EPJ outwitted by Rand Paul

Smug Walter Block writes on September 6:

"I assume Rand Paul will not only vote against bombing Syria, but be one of the Senate leaders for a “no” vote. But what about Mitch McConnell? Right now, Rand Paul supports his re-election. But suppose Senator McConnell votes in favor of bombing Syria, or abstains. What, then, will be Rand Paul’s decision as to whether or not to continue his support for McConnell? I hope and trust that Rand will then withdraw his support for that candidacy. Interesting times lie ahead of us."

Of course, we all know that Rand Paul lobbied Mitch McConnell, and then McConnell announced on the senate floor that he would vote 'no' on the war upon Syria. Interesting, but McConnell was the ONLY legislative leader, democrat or republican, to be a no vote on Syria.

We all expect a prompt apology from smug Walter Block and the EPJ.

Dude, you need a reality

Dude, you need a reality check.

Madison was no saint.

Yes, he was highly educated and thoughtful classical liberal who maybe knew more about the failures of government than any man before or since, and he was the chief architect of the constitution, but he also thought it was just fine to own other people.

He was hardly in the same league, human rights-wise, as a modern libertarian thinker such as Walter Block.

If you actually think Block

If you actually think Block is in the same universe as James Madison in regards to influence for libety, you have serious issues. Seek help.
