Ron Paul on Stossel: Did libertarians win?

Ron Paul easily won re-election, but the tide of public acceptance of the small-gov, positive liberty message is clearly swinging in our favor in more than just his Texas district.

As an example: results of LP candidates are steadily climbing. What was at one time a 0.5-2% vote margin is now steadily growing into a sizable share of the public’s choice. Gosh, finally some of our radical pro-liberty ideas are actually winning winning national acceptance. Now that the election is over, the movement’s efforts should be focused on holding them to the principles these Tea Party and small-gov candidates campaigned on.

Now if we could properly marginalize the political egomaniacs, our movement will have some credibility.

UPDATE: I don’t want to deliberately single out our own ranks, but I can just smell it when someone is trying to be a bullshit artist. Palin, Beck, O’Reilly and a litany of other FOX-grown candidates come to mind as the hypocrites that need to be marginalized. They are the flies that tend to hover when any pro-war manure is being dumped on that network.

I've published HoT along with about 300+ friends since 2002. We're all Americans who are snarky and love our country. I'm a libertarian that registered Republican because I like to win elections. That's pretty much it.

  1. Loved this video. John Stossel has been one of my favorite journalists for the longest time. I’m also very excited about the small change in the winds, but for liberty minded people it is not time to rest on this small victory, but to make sure that we re-double our efforts and support those who support the message of freedom and liberty. Thanks for the post. If anyone has not had a chance to watch the documentary on Ron Paul’s recent presidential campaign called Liberty, it is one worth watching and can be found at

    Thanks again
