Replacing one corrupt bank with 50 corrupt banks.
Wouldn't happen long in a free market.
It is precisely this type of asinine babbling that turns people off from libertarianism.
So, defending the rights of some company to treat its customers and employees like crap (that would be unlikely in a true free marker) does not go over well with the plebeians.
I've also been seeing a lot more of these religious right, social conservatives on Ron Paul sites, too.
Luckily, coming from a Christian family, I have built up a tolerance to their kind of beliefs. Unfortunately, it dwindles with age.
Only two things wrong with this video.
1) Don't want to look up to Bill Gates.
2) Don't want it regulated or taxed. Just legalize it.
As a Kentuckian, I am voting for Rand, but I am not fully convinced he's like his dad. It's difficult to evaluate behind the fog of campaign rhetoric.
I'll watch his voting record closely and if it turns out Ron supported him just because it's his son, I'll be forced to withdraw support for both of them.
Thanks for sharing.
I think people are so focused on government wrongdoings, that they're brainwashed into thinking we should not question business.
Without forcing legislation on the business to do as we please, we can and SHOULD be very vocal when they do something displeasing.
There's a fine line in supporting private property rights and becoming big business apologists. Judging from some of these comments, some on here have crossed it.
Ron Paul is the man who turned me on to Libertarian ideas and now fellow supporters of his continue to insult my current party at every disagreement.
They want to blindly believe that everything from the mind and seed of Ron Paul is a perfect candidate of liberty, wrapped up in a neat little ribbon of Constitutional authority.
I voted for Rand Paul. I plan to vote for him again in November, but in no way do I believe that he is the mirror image of his father. There is way too much pandering to the Tea Party and national media to which Ron Paul would never fall victim.
I'm at the point now were I now find myself waiting to see how Rand Paul votes to know exactly where he stands on the issues. Not once did I have to do that with his father. He's been repeating and voting the same messages for decades, regardless of how unpopular they may be. I expected nothing less of Rand.
This is the best action by the FCC since its creation.
The bottom line is that no one should be allowed to restrict the access of information, FCC or private establishment.
You can invoke property rights all you want, but I believe in the freedom of information, as layed out in the Hacker Manifesto.
