(AP) With 'freedom' in fashion, is libertarianism back?
By PAULINE ARRILLAGA

AP National Writer
LAS VEGAS

To begin: This is not a story about Ron Paul.

Not exactly, anyway. And yet to get where we want to go we will start at OPA!, a Greek restaurant on the edge of town where Clark County Republicans and tea party conservatives gathered on Nevada primary night for what looked undeniably like a Ron Paul rally.

In one corner was Cindy Lake, the acting chair of the Clark County Republican Party and a delegate to this summer's Republican National Convention. A self-described "libertarian Republican constitutional conservative," Lake became a Paul convert in 2007 after she heard him advocate for something she passionately supports: the freedom to buy raw milk.


Snip...

But we promised this wouldn't be about Ron Paul and, in fact, it really isn't. Rather it's about unpasteurized milk and home births and taxes and, yes, freedom.

Something's going on in America this election year: a renaissance of an ideal as old as the nation itself that live-and-let-live, get-out-of-my-business, individualism vs. paternalism dogma that is the hallmark of libertarianism.

There is an AP article on Breitbart's big government website titled "With freedom in fashion is libertarianism back?". It states that it is not about Ron Paul but then pretty much talks about him, the liberty movement, it's future, and what it means to the GOP. I'm to new to post a link but I thought it might be of interest to the forum.

Yea the article was posted on several websites. It was mentioned in this thread a few days back, didn't get a lot of replies though: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?382656-A-WaPo-story-failing-to-write-about-freedom-without-mentioning-Ron-Paul-%28does-mention%29

Something didn't seem quite right as I read the AP article that finally made the newspapers in Southern California today. After comparing the two I found that they had cut the article, leaving off the last 16 paragraphs. Two nice pictures of Dr. Paul though.
