My Statement on Recent Attacks

Today’s article that brought my not-very-hidden radio pundit background to light does not accurately reflect me or my full, or true, views. The role of a radio host is different from that of a political operative. In radio, sometimes you’re encouraged to be provocative and inflammatory. I’ve been guilty of both, and am embarrassed by […]

Mark Sanford is Better Than 99% of Congress

Mark Sanford is Better Than 99% of Congress

I would vote for Mark Sanford over 90% of the Republicans currently in Congress. Not because he is necessarily a better man than them. But because I know that he would actually do the job he was elected to do. He already has the record to prove it. I vote for candidates who I believe, […]

Can We Afford Not to Give Liberty Leaders the Benefit of the Doubt?

Can We Afford Not to Give Liberty Leaders the Benefit of the Doubt?

When the media tried to pretend Rand Paul “flip-flopped” on drones this week, after he used unclear language during an interview with Fox’s Neil Cavuto, I posted the following on Facebook: Folks, the same guy who filibustered for 13 hours to say the government does not have the right to drone American citizens on American […]

Would Rand Paul or Rick Santorum’s GOP Be More Successful?

Would Rand Paul or Rick Santorum’s GOP Be More Successful?

In today’s Wall Street Journal, Rick Santorum says: Rand Paul’s brand doesn’t line up with all of what our party stands for—on national security, social values, the economy and the role of government in society.

The Daily Beast ran the […]

Was CPAC LibertarianMania?

Was CPAC LibertarianMania?

  Many seemed to think so. The Daily Beast “Rand Paul is So Hot Right Now:” If CPAC were a music festival, Jeb Bush or Paul Ryan might be the headliner, butRand Paul would be the obscure indie band-turned-newly-hip main attraction. The senator from Kentucky’s now-infamous filibuster last week seems to have done for Paul what “coming out” […]

Did #StandWithRand Change the World?

Did #StandWithRand Change the World?

The reaction to Sen. Rand Paul’s 13 hour filibuster on Wednesday elicited positive reactions from across the political spectrum. Many noted that Paul’s example carried revolutionary implications, for libertarianism, conservatism, transpartisanism, the Republican Party and American politics at large. Let’s start with the libertarians. Brian Doherty, Senior Editor at Reason told Business Insider: “This was a […]

Reader Email on Glenn Beck and Libertarianism

I was attracted to Ron Paul’s message as an antiwar conservative who thought Bush-Cheney era neoconservatives had severely damaged the Republican Party and the country. I’ve met others who come from a more liberal perspective. I’ve met those who were generally apathetic about politics until Dr. Paul inspired them. I’ve also met a good number […]
