... during the elections, and especially Ron Paul supporters.
I don't think Beck knows what a libertarian is, or he does and is trying to discredit libertarianism.
Having said that ...
To the extent more sheeple hear that there is at least SOME alternative viewpoint to left/right, that is a GOOD thing in the overall scheme of things.
I think Glenn Beck is as much controlled opposition as anything -- BUT BUT BUT ...
I also think it's true that the establishment mentality has NO CLUE what limited government ideas are all about (they cannot comprehend non-rule) ... and so they end up being useful idiots. They present our ideas ... do so incorrectly ... and yet are useful to us in waking up people to the idea that there ARE IN FACT other ways of looking at the world.
And if I'm wrong ... then even BETTER because that means we have a true national voice in Beck.
Maybe Beck has had a slow awakening himself, just as many of us have.
It's just that I'm a bit ... skeptical.
Either way, it COULD be a good thing. We just have to view him as POTENTIAL controlled opposition, and call him out when necessary.
