I keep hearing and reading about how we “need health care for every American”. Several presidential candidates are touting this, and some have come up with a “plan” to accomplish this. As a libertarian minded individual I think this is a very dangerous path. There is an excellent fiction novel by Gen LaGreca called “Noble Vision”.

Ron Paul on CNN Sunday Spotlight. This is another excellent interview with Ron Paul. He articulates his position on Iraq with responses to audio clips from recent George Bush speech on the subject.
Pretty good interview by an old favorite of mine: Dennis Miller. While they disagree on Iraq, this was a decent conversation.
Ron Paul interview audio from the Dennis Miller radio show on 5/30/2007.
I enjoyed this interview, mainly because he singled out two possible running mates who I respect and devour anything they’ve written or broadcasted.
Ron Paul gets treated in the media how he deserves for a change: with respect.
Ben Franklin has said, “Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.” I can’t help but think of George Bush and Rudy Giuliani as the wolves and Ron Paul as the lamb.
In the latest Cato Policy Report, Brink Lindsay makes a good case for reasons why Libertarianism has thrived in the post-war era, at least in mindset, if not in true activism. With the grassroots support of a Libertarian leaning Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul this article is especially compelling.
He makes a compelling argument with the following quote:
“American capitalism is derided for its superficial banality, yet it has unleashed profound, convulsive social change. Condemned as mindless materialism, it has burst loose a flood tide of spiritual yearning. The civil rights movement and the sexual revolution, environmentalism and feminism, the fitness and health care boom and the opening of the gay closet, the withering of censorship and the rise of a “creative class” of “knowledge workers”—all are the progeny of widespread prosperity.”
Here is part 2:
It’s refreshing to hear the words of liberty being spoken in a venue that is normally filled with self-congratulatory rhetoric. Ron Paul does it again.
