    • “Addressing President Bush’s program of channeling government money through religious-based charities, Paul said on KET’s Kentucky Tonight on June 30, 2008, that ‘churches do charity work, and that is wonderful, but they shouldn’t be corrupted with government money.’

    “He also said the initiatives ‘obscure the church-state separation that there really ought to be,’” the paper reports.


    Sheer madness right? How about the next one:

    “In an interview on May 15, 2009, Paul told the host of Antiwar Radio that he would have voted against going to war in Iraq and that he opposes a long-term occupation of Iraq or Iran.”

    “In the same interview, he said, ‘I think torture is always wrong’ and that ‘our country should have a higher ideal than that.’”


    Is that libertarian lunacy? How about this one:

    “I think you don’t have a right to happiness — you have the right to the pursuit of happiness,” Paul, an ophthalmologist, said in a 2009 Kentucky town hall meeting. “[I]f you think you have the right to health care, you are saying basically that I am your slave. I provide health care. … My staff and technicians provide it. … If you have a right to health care, then you have a right to their labor.”

    I could go on, but is that necessary? In general, libertarians believe that you are a free man, with a right to live your own life for its own sake, and should be left free to make your own decisions. Honestly, what is 'objectionable' about that?
    Dress it up all you want, most of the garbage he spews is still Far Right Ayn Rand BS - the stuff most of us thought was really cool when we were college freshmen and then quickly outgrew it.

    Is the son the one who thinks the wrong side won the Civil War and the 1964 Civil Rights Act was bad legislation, or is that his daddy, the equally bizarre Ron Paul?

    Bull****.

    and the 1964 Civil Rights Act was bad legislation
    It was bad legislation based on Constitutional limits on congressional power, and that would be the position of both, as well as anyone who can read plain English.

    so it was crazy Ron instead? Or is that the general Libertarian position?

    Yep, I guess it was crazy Ron:

    It's hard to tell one from the other, but Ron Paul had the neo-confederate as his chief of staff, Lou Rockwell, and he said that Lincoln was a war monger (or something to the effect) and all Lincoln had to do was buy the slaves from a helpful if slightly overproud southern aristocracy.

    And this is why nobody takes libertarianism seriously.

    Both are associated with the ludicrous Von Mises Institute, which is a bastion of neoconfederate garbage and racism.
