Ron Paul update
Mainstream media finally managed to do some journalism regarding Ron Paul, his support among white supremacists, and the link with the Rothbard/Rockwell contingent. Credit the New York Times with getting the story. They even managed to do it without tarring all of libertarianism, too.
It's sad that it has to come to this, because what America and the world needs now is intelligent, informed, consistent libertarianism. These kinds of scandals do not help introduce liberty to new audiences. But it's necessary that these pseudo-libertarians be exposed, and if this is what it takes, so be it. I hope this continues -- as they say, sunlight is the best disinfectant.
