Ron Paul and Libertarianism

This is a synopsis of an article titled, "When We Can Say We're All 
Austrians," by a writer who has so skillfully exposed those who would 
replace our democracy with a theocracy.  Her name is Rachel Tabachnick. 
In this article she shows how Ron Paul's "libertarianism"
is anything by copacetic.  It is very dangerous.
What follows comes from 
Recent press coverage has described Rep. Ron Paul's appeal to young voters
as based on the combination of his conservative economics with liberal
social views.  This might suffice as a simplistic explanation of the
libertarianism of some Americans, but it does not accurately represent
Paul's ideology. Paul's brand of libertarianism is shared with the
frequently overlapping John Birch Society, Constitution Party and
Conservative Caucus (both founded by Howard Phillips), and the American
branch of the Austrian School of Economics - the Ludwig von Mises
Institute.    Like Paul, these groups are located on the
ultra-conservative end of the political spectrum. Their distinguishing
feature is a brand of libertarianism in which the federal government is to
be dramatically reduced in favor of "states' rights" and, as described by
the Constitution Party, local application of "jurisprudence based on
biblical foundations."  This is theocratic libertarianism, the type
of libertarian "freedom" promoted by Christian Reconstructionist Rousas J.

Libertarians are really just conservative Republicans in disguise. They too want a government so small it fits in your bedroom, or better yet in your uterus.

I remember watching a video of Ron Paul a few years ago, and he said some decent things at first (he talks a good line), smaller government, better use of tax dollars, okay, I'm thinking, that all sounds reasonable, and then he says abortion should be illegal. I was like, 'wait-wait-what? You just got through saying the government should stop trying to regulate every little thing but it's okay for government to regulate morality? What?'

I soon after realized they're really all the same, no difference. The politicians are all bought and sold by corporations.
