I can't believe this is a Discussion: Is Ron Paul or Mises

in favor of this?

If Ron Paul would argue for "more gov't" as a tool to give back greater "self-rule" then I'd quit Daily Paul and all political commentary (forever).

Mises argues for "lesser" Gov't.

This "bigger" gov't model is a perversion of failed Rothbardian logic (not blaming Rothbard).

The "children" of Rothbard cannot "really" get anyone interested in their non-transitionary Anarcho-Capitalist cooings, so when they step into the world of Constitutionalism they create another absurdity.

Remember Mises and Rothbard disagreed over "who" the Individual was in a free-society. Rothbard being a Propertarian-Individualist and Mises a Consumer-Individualist.

I can't stress what an enormous rift this is in down-stream philosophy -- Imagine leaving the Port of San Francisco (two ships) both heading do west. One veers slightly (1 degree) north-west -- after one thousand miles do the ships reach the same destination?

Rockwell and Thornton are absurd for trying to make "this" Constitutional argument.
