Thanks for the repost. I particularly enjoyed reading Politeia's post regarding Buddhism and libertarian philosophy.
I have read several books on Buddhism and really enjoy the philosophy. The Dalai Lama speaks peace and logic like no other. The only lineage that compares is the Jedi, although fictional, I think one would find a deliberate similarity between Yoda and the Dalai Lama.
I run into people who claim to be Buddhist from time to time, but they always seem to subscribe to the democrats version of compassion. I think to be true to the Buddhist philosophy, you would have to be libertarian.
Ron Paul is to the American government as the Dalai Lama is to the Chinese government.
I hope some day Ron Paul comes out with a book called, "The Spiritualiity of Freedom".
The founders would be ashamed at us for what we are putting up with.
