About AJ, you have to admit one thing, and that is he gets attention, in short, people listen to what he has to say, many many people, and for various reasons.
Distancing yourself from the provocative nature of his delivery and the sensationalising of his material and his rhetoric is one thing, and simply a matter of preference, but to ostracise him and dismiss his contribution to, if nothing else, waking people up is short-sighted.
That seems to be a short-coming of the purist element within the liberty movement. Too many dismiss efforts by other individuals, and entities, based on the 'label' they wear, their mere 'leaning' toward libertarian ideals, or simply their sphere of influence falling short of the total libertarian package. Where opportunity to awaken, educate, and expand numbers exists, it should not be dismissed.
There is only two factions in this struggle, and that's the status quo and the constitutionalists, and you don't have to be a 'purist' to support enforced adherence to the constitution.
