I'm not Josh, but ...

... I would like to point out that Ron Paul has always been a minarchist and not an anarchist. If he were an anarchist, it is unlikely he would have ever run for office. He would not be practicing his philosophy if he did.

However, "statist" is usually a term reserved to people who believe in government as a tool that can be used for "good" as they see it. A minarchist only sees government as necessary, not good.

An anarchist sees government as neither good nor necessary.
