Cato VP Attacks Ron Paul, Calls His Ideas a “Hideous Corruption Of Libertarian Ideas”

In a series of tweets Wednesday afternoon, Cato Institute Vice President of Research Brink Lindsey called Ron Paul a xenophobe, conspiracy theorist, and Paul’s philosophy a “hideous corruption of libertarian ideas.” In two back-to-back tweets, the Cato VP stated that “the most prominent libertarian voice of recent times, Ron Paul, opposed all trade agreements and promoted anti-trade conspiracy theories” and “Ron Paul’s xenophobia was a hideous corruption of libertarian ideas and puts his movement in the Trumpism family tree.” Keep Reading

The Masses In Motion: Why Libertarian Populism Is The Way Forward

For students of political strategy, the 2016 presidential race was a remarkable and informative election. This is especially true for grassroots libertarians who want to learn how to build an electoral coalition capable of winning national elections. It shows why libertarian populism must be the way forward for activists interested in advancing the liberty movement. Donald Trump – or should I say President Trump – accomplished something incredible: he methodically took down sixteen of the Republican Party’s best candidates in the primaries and then annihilated Hillary Clinton in an electoral landslide, holding on to traditional red states while winning states like Michigan and Pennsylvania that establishment Republicans could never even dream of winning.

They will be edited by Raimondo himself and released through the Mises Institute. This isn’t the first time that Rothbard has conquered death to deliver the message of hardcore liberty to the masses. In 2010, Strictly Confidential: The Private Volker Fund Memos of Murray N. Rothbard was published by David Gordon, editor of the Mises Review. That was a rather substantial 431 page text, and now a mere six years later, we are privileged to even more Rothbard. Take that, Grim Reaper! Rothbard’s prolific nature extending beyond the grave draws an obvious comparison to Tupac Shakur, the legendary rap artist who was… Keep Reading
