RP's Xmas List
My guy T-Schall will likely not be on Ron Paul's Xmas list.
Article from Bal Sun here (reprinted pretty widely)
Now, full disclosure, T-Schall is my student, back from UNC-CH days. We have published together. So I am hardly neutral on this topic.
But it seems to me that Dr. Schaller has this right. The attraction of Dr. Paul has always escaped me. Yes, he is clearly right about several things. But he is wrong, and not just a little bit wrong, about a lot of important things.
Overall, I am grateful to Dr. Paul. He has been brave and consistent about advancing his views. But the people who come up to me and say, "Oh, you must like _________, he's a libertarian," only to have me stare at them in horror....you people are crazy.
Here is a partial list of people you goofballs think are libertarians. They can call themselves what they want, of course. But they are NOT libertarians.
So, when one of this group is discussed, or lauded, or is for some other reason in the news, please don't say, "Oh, you must be happy."
What DOES make me happy? Harry Browne's New Year's Day Resolutions. Harry Browne was a Libertarian.
