Comment: Lew Rockwell is obviously a close friend of Ron Paul's.

(See in situ)


Lew Rockwell is obviously a close friend of Ron Paul's.

I have been reading Lew's site since the late 90's. Any cursory attempt at reading will reveal to anyone that Lew has always been by Ron's side for the last 40 years or so. To suggest that Dr. Paul dump Lew is to try to pick someone's friends for him. Lew Rockwell tends towards the anarchy side of the internal spread of minarchists/anarchists among libertarians. His writing is often dripping with sarcasm and other forms of verbal acid. So what? He's also one of the people who has done the most for this movement since before many of those here were even born.

I agree that the headline for the Rand video was sensationalised, and not entirely accurate. Maybe Lew is understandably a little sensitive about Rand's hedging strategy. Fine, disagree with him on that point, then. But don't go off trying to disown him over it. We never owned him in the first place!
