Pardon my rhetoric

You're right...I absolutely didn't think you'd embrace North's positions, but your blistering assault on the writer of the article seemed to skip right past the substance of the issue (that is, whether North is a wise pick) and simply returned fire on Ron Paul's behalf instead. I cherish Ron Paul, too, which is why I was concerned about what I read about Gary North.

As for reading more of North's stuff, the article is well-sourced and links to the sources for its Gary North quotes. Yes, I believe a well-supervised North would probably write school curriculum that sticks to proper libertarian principles, but I still find it odd that someone who apparently embraces those beliefs about what America should look like was the top choice.

Sincere thanks for your compliment. Yours in liberty...BP
