The Republic Strikes Back! Liberty Has a Constituency!Submitted by Liberty_Belle on Tue, 04/21/2009 - 10:43
*** Enjoy this excellent article by Bill Kauffman! Please read the full article!! There are some interesting comments about Gary Johnson running in 2012... but mostly I LOVE what he wrote about us here:
"Ron Paul started something. Or, rather, he revealed something: liberty has a constituency. I was heartened mightily by the crowd in Minneapolis, which was overwhelmingly young. What a rousing sight: bright and enthusiastic kids afire with the spirit of liberty, of resistance to regimentation and the tyranny of standardization. Homeschoolers, homebrewers, punk rockers, evangelical Christians, radical Kansans, and reactionary New Englanders. These were American girls and boys, beautifully stained in the American grain, hip to Republican lies and numbing Democratic statism. Hell no, they won’t go. They’ll not be cannon fodder for the wars of Bush-Cheney or Obama-Biden. They demand honesty and liberty and respect for all things small and smaller; they have nothing but scorn for the liars and whores who run the empire."
