Justin Have You Completely Left the Anti-Neocon Camp?

Has Rand Paul really mesmerized you this much?

According to Rand himself, the bill is not anti-foreign aid but simply puts conditions favorable to Israel on the aid. Read Rand's own words here: Rand Paul Shows His Neocon Empire Meddling Colors.

Two questions come to mind:

1. Why should the U.S. be meddling in the affairs of the Middle East to begin with?

2. Why should the U.S. be paying out foreign aid to any country, with conditions or not?


  1. Your hatred of anything to do with Rand Paul is hilarious.

    1. Good point. No candidate is perfect. Even Mr. Libertarian Murray Rothbard endorsed and supported Pat Buchanan for president in 1992. Buchanan may have been an ally on international affairs but he was completely non-libertarian on issues like trade, immigration and many social issues.

    2. The difference is Pat Buchanan never pretended to be a libertarian or quasi-libertarian. Rothbard was tougher on libertarian candidates who deviated significantly from libertarian philosophy and distorted the message of the movement.

    3. Rothbard gave up on libertarian politics. See his writings from the early 1990s,(below) he basically said the LP was made up of left wing wackos and that the only strategy for uber libertarians like himself was to make a pact with conservatives like Buchanan and Chronicles

      All the stuff about purity he wrote in the 1970s and 1980s, basically was tossed out the window in his later years

  2. it's pitch for that sheldon adelson $$$.

  3. You keep wanting to play gotcha with all libertarians. Look Raimondo has always been willing to delve into electoral and partisan politics, just like Rothbard, whether Pat Buchanan or others. Walter Block has been willing to do the same, e.g. his early hope for Sarah Palin. Raimondo is no neocon, nor is Block, and nor was Rothbard. Give the libertarian Madame Defarge act a rest already.
