This shouldn't be that much of a controversy,

libertarians definitely do need to learn how to reach out and find allies. It is counter productive for us to degrade, belittle, and dismiss every potential ally on certain issues simply b/c they are not libertarian on every issue. On the other hand, Beck is NOT a libertarian and he should not be calling himself one. He does not represent our ideology very well. But if he wants us to accept him, he can and should provide libertarians with a platform on the blaze and we should use it. It would be damn decent of him to do so, but he should not try to interfere or insert his ideologies into ours. If he does the former, we would owe him thanks and he might just learn something to boot. If, however, he continues to call himself a libertarian and/or misrepresents our ideology, then we can rip him to shreds on his own show.

"When I say liberty I do not simply mean what is referred to as 'free enterprise.' I mean liberty of the individual to think his own thoughts and live his own life as he desires to think and to live..." - Robert A. Taft
