Why is there so much anti-capitalist sentiment on Daily Paul?Submitted by nalineback on Sun, 02/17/2008 - 13:27
Ron Paul's message is entirely about free markets. So why is there so much anti-capitalist sentiment on Daily Paul? It seems the discussion on this forum is dominated by socialist tinged populism and conspiracy theories. People on this forum should read more F. A. Hayek and Murray Rothbard and listen to less Alex Jones. Logically formed arguments based on principle are sorely lacking. When I started supporting Ron Paul about a year ago I was hopeful that we might be entering a new age of reason. I now realize that many of the people that support Dr. Paul are victims of the same knee jerk reactionary sports fan attitude that afflicts the majority of republicans and democrats. Let the accusations of "troll" fly. That won't change the fact that this movement has turned into group think populism. Many of you think that you are different from the majority but, a black sheep is still a sheep.
