PAUL: I thought a lot about why those of us who believe in liberty as a solution have done so poorly in convincing others of its benefits. If liberty is what we claim it is, the principle that protects all personal, social, and economic decisions necessary for maximum prosperity and the best chance for peace, it should be an easy sell. Yet history has shown that the masses have been quite receptive to the promises of authoritarians which are rarely, if ever, fulfilled.

He's right about this. I wish he weren't, but he is, whether or not the liberal news media would ever admit it. The masses seem eager to believe Obama's class warfare and "free" handouts and that capitalism ruined our country. As if! Without capitalism, we wouldn't have the (formerly) largest economy with the (formerly) low unemployment and (formerly) great innovations and (formerly) best standard of living of anywhere in the world. We may still hold that last title, but probably not for long if Obama gets his way. Policies do have consequences, whether intentional or not.
