I'm as dissapointed as the rest of you..

..maybe even more so. I love Thomas Sowell and this news hurts bad. HOWEVER, like I said before, we need to remember that just because people disagree with Ron doesn't automatically mean they are a pimp, or a shill, or a traitor. Thomas Sowell has done more to advance the ideas of liberty and small government than anyone this side of Milton Friedman. There are obvious examples of traitors and media members who are paid to think how they do. Thomas isn't one of them. The guys just disagrees on foreign policy. I'm not sure why it's so hard for some of you to see that not everyone agrees all the time with Ron. In the interest of not making ourselves into the same close minded cult members who elected Obama, I suggest we not continue such disrespect towards people who don't automatically agree.
Thomas Sowell's hawkish war stance comes for an in depth study of history far superior to most of ours. I disagree with him on Iran, but he has schooled many audiences with his knowledge of why some European countries had to be saved by the US during WWII. It is that knowledge of societies and how they handle threats which shapes his view. Unlike Mitt and Newt, who both dodged military service, Dr. Sowell was a US Marine. He isn't a chickenhawk, a traitor, or a pimp. He is a realist, a libertarian, and an honest man. We don't gain any credibility by treating such a man so rudely simply because he isn't on our side in this.
When Ron wins the nomination, it would be wise of us not to alienate all his possible supporters by being so disrespectful.
Vote this comment down if you wish, but know this, Thomas Sowell was speaking out against government waste, the Federal Reserve, and socialism when most of us weren't even a twinkle in our father's eye.

Free market capitalism isn't right for America because it works better. It's right because it's free (and it works better).
