"If you analyze it I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism." — Ronald Reagan

Up to the point of the Constitution. Sometimes I'm not sure that some Libertaians cross that line.

Otherwise, I'm pretty much in full agreement and let the states work out the details. Politically and financially, our country would be rich. Spiritually, its another story. Our country needs real help in that area.

Regrettably there aren't enough libertarian-doers in Congress who would stop the decades of runaway-spending and cut the government down to constitutional size.

And Ron Paul talks the talk, but when it comes to inserting earmarks, he doesn't walk the walk. This will make your pointy little head explode, Rabs, but when it comes to earmarks, McCain is actually better than RuPaul (McCain more than makes up for it elsewhere in being a stinker, but Paul is hardly as pure as the driven snow when it comes to spending).

And I notice there is utterly no mention of Paul's antiwar moonbattery, which more than neutralizes any domestic sanity he promotes from time to time. And Paul is hardly alone in the libertarian movement in promoting such views.

Commentators have had a difficult time labeling tea party citizens.

How about calling them 'concerned citizens!' Works for me.

Sure. Fight conservatism, fight America, and help the left with their 1960s agenda to destroy American Christian culture and traditions, while somehow fantasizing that you can win those left wing compatriots to leave the conservative economic policies standing.

Here is the leftists agenda hidden behind the Libertarian Party curtain.

Libertarian Party Platform:

Throw open the borders completely; only a rare individual (terrorist, disease carrier etc.) can be kept from freedom of movement through “political boundaries”.

Homosexuals; total freedom in the military, gay marriage, adoption, child custody and everything else.

Abortion; zero restrictions or impediments.

Pornography; no restraint, no restrictions.

Drugs; Meth, Heroin, Crack, and anything new that science can come up with, zero restrictions.

Advertising those drugs, prostitution, and pornography; zero restrictions.

Military Strength; minimal capabilities

That's fairly accurate. I tend to be a right leaning libertarian.

"So is Paul crazy?"

Yes.

By the way, Paul didn't start the tea parties, nor do most tea partiers agree with his brand of libertarianism.

Considered a "kook" by many of his congressional peers, Paul may be the only sane one there. This is the man who just returned $100,000 of his congressional budget back to the U.S. Treasury. His congressional frugality borders on treason within free-spending Congress. Nicknamed "Dr. No" because of his thriftiness, he votes no to any legislation unless it adheres to the Constitution.

Rabs,

Come on already.

Nice statement, however, given his unethical behavior of loading up bills with pork for his district that he knows in advance he will be voting against, and he is sure will pass totally negates any of the positive PR (from a small "l" libertarian perspective) he gets for being called "Dr. No".

Furthermore, his anti-war shenagins such as aligning with Code-Pink, being against all international wars (it would seem), being against the Civil War (or claiming it was not necessary) make him out to be a complete kook!

I wonder if Ron Paul is happy that France came to our rescue in the war 1776? Without them, you and I wouldn't have the freedoms we have today. So I wonder if he thought France should have done what they did, intervene in an international war, thereby saving our butts!

We’ve got a two-fer here.

Renew America orignally belonged to Alan Keyes.

“You betcha” Ron Paul is a kook.

The founders of this great experiment we call a Representative Democracy made it clear that the system they had setup was ONLY meant for a Christian Nation or People. They also made it very clear, that if the people walked away from their Christianity, this Republic and it’s system would fail!

I got about this far...

So is Paul crazy? Of course not.

...before I started taking this article with a rather large measure of salt.

Even most libertarians think Ron Paul is a hypocritical nutcase.

Support of truthers, Cynthia McKinney, and being the ear mark leader while preaching fiscal responsibility make him the king of kooks and a target rich environment.

Give it up Rabadash Rabs, supporting a kook isn't good even at your age.

"Citizens who consider themselves conservative might be surprised to find they're somewhere between conservative and libertarian."

The use of the word "might" usually signifies the writer isn't at all sure of what they are saying, and tries to cover their ass by using weasel words like "might", "may", "could be", "perhaps", etc.

That goes right along with the "libertarians", who pick just enough planks from both parties to ride the fence and not be slammed by either.

To rephrase that statement it should go something like this:

"Citizens who consider themselves libertarians will be surprised to find they're somewhere between conservatives and LIBERALS."

Libertarians find the fringe things they disagree with in both parties, and then clammor for the center.

A "right leaning libertarians" is an OXYMORON.

Fiscally conservative and socially liberal is NOT the road for America...for social liberalism by its very nature will lead us all back to FISCAL IRRESPONSIBILITY. It must, to finance the frills of social liberalism.

Glenn Beck and others who are now pumping libertariansism up our butts will do nothing to reinstate the Constitution, and will eventually peel off weak conservatives to vote Libertarian, and we end up with a split vote again, and poof...four more years of obama.

Libertarianism offers conservatives NOTHING that is not offered in conservatism, except may the desire to legalize dope and open the borders. It will still lead to unemployment, high taxes and chaos.

Say NO to libertainism...no matter which "celebrity" thinks it's great...and we know that celebrities are such political geniuses...don't we Sean Penn?

Libertarians aren't conservative enough.

Elect ONLY Conservative Republicans. There are plenty of them out there.

And we see why Rabs attacks Palin - because she is a viable GOP candidate for the White House in 2012, and Rabs pimps third-parties.
