Ron Paul: U.S. Likely ‘Hiding The Truth’ On MH17

Ron Paul believes the United States government isn’t leveling with us on what happened with downed Malaysian Airline Flight 17, saying it “knows a lot more.” In an Aug. 7 post to the site Voices of Liberty, Paul suggests that the U.S. may be aware of evidence that Russia is not to blame for the plane [...]

The Libertarian Moment?

Sunday’s New York Times Magazine has a feature story on the libertarian movement, suggesting it’s more popular now than ever. (h/t Political Wire) Libertarians, who long have relished their role as acerbic sideline critics of American political theater, now find themselves and their movement thrust into the middle of it. For decades their ideas have [...]

And what better vehicle than an Ayn rand one? The three-time presidential candidate will make his acting debut in “Atlas Shrugged: Who Is John Galt?,” the third installment of the films based on Ayn Rand’s novel. “Atlas Shrugged is a fantastic book, but it’s much more than a story – it’s a philosophy,” Paul told [...]

God forbid a Republican wants to get the government out of the war business. The right-wing establishment just can’t handle that.

But self-determination is a centerpiece of international law. Article I of the United Nations Charter points out clearly that [...]

Ron Paul says Vladimir Putin is in the right, with the law on his side in invading Crimea. Paul said that the United States and the West have engaged in hypocrisy and alleged that they participated in the overthrow of Viktor Yanukovich’s government. He added that Russian President Vladimir Putin has “some law on his [...]

Maybe all the cool kids on the internet jumped on the ‘Fight Back’ bandwagon Tuesday but not everyone is a fan. Former RWNJ (by his own admission) and current Glenn Greenwald antagonist Charles Johnson mocks the whole idea with Left Wing Libertarians Join Forces With Far Right Ron Paulians to Complain About the NSA . [...]

Writer Edwin Lyngar explains why he went from being a Libertarian to a Liberal. I came by my own libertarian sensibilities honestly. I grew up in a mining town that produced gold, silver and copper; but above all, Battle Mountain, Nev. made libertarians. Raised on 40-acre square of brown sage brush and dead earth, we [...]
