From LRC
  • The good that Ron Paul has done: Countless Americans accustomed to thinking in terms of economic freedom vs. “personal” freedom learned to think about liberty holistically.
  • The Cold War was a scam simply invented to “scare the hell out of the American people”: conservatives shifted from opposing foreign intervention to being warmongers and evangelists for globaloney once the Commies were the official enemy.
  • Strangely, the public seethes over gas [fuel-price] increases but yawns over bailouts. ‘They’re too big to fail; we’re not too big to fleece.’
  • The conservative claims a liberal bias in [state] education; they claim a liberal agenda. They are right. However, the conservatives only propose to force their bias on the liberals. The conservatives also have an agenda. Both groups seek to use government, and both are winning and losing at the same time. What the state schools are about: you adopt a Gramscian approach and slowly destroy the institutions of free association — of liberty and freedom. You attack the family, the church, etc., in a roundabout way.
