How many of you know that? Hmm?
This is waaaay before his 'Blaze' blog and even before his big day at the Lincoln Memorial.
I watched his show every day, and whenever it came up, he ALWAYS said he was a libertarian. And now he's saying he wants in the libertarian fold? Or maybe he wants to be something like its leader?
Was he just fooling himself about what a libertarian was before and now that his great teacher, Penn Jillette, is teaching him about libertarianism, he realized that calling himself a libertarian was nothing like what a libertarian was all about?
And why the need to be anything? I am NOT a libertarian, and except for a short stint, neither was Ron Paul, but that doesn't separate us from the principles of Liberty. That is all I'm concerned about - adhering to the truths of Liberty as best espoused by our founders.
I am in total agreement with George Washington who expounded, "a more comprehensive view" and warned us "in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the spirit of party generally."
How different the political scene would be if no parties existed. You'd actually have to vote for a PERSON based on what he's done, if his actions reflect his beliefs, and if he has exhibited the courage of his convictions - not just on what he promised to do. What makes Ron Paul great is not just what he proposed, but what he refused to succumb to.
Also, why is Beck trying to be a 'libertarian' now that Ron Paul is out of the political scene?
Have programs that include Dr Paul, Mr Beck, and let your actions prove your dedication.
If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.
