"During my years in Congress, my staff worked closely with Phyllis's Eagle Forum on restoring parental control of education, protecting American sovereignty, and protecting privacy. Phyllis was one of the few conservative leaders who endorsed my campaign to return to Congress in 1996. Her support was very helpful in overcoming the Republican establishment's smear campaign designed to convince Republican primary voters that my consistent support of the Constitution and individual liberty somehow meant I was not a "real" Republican." - Ron Paul. He wrote the forward to the re-release of her book a couple years back.
I am with Walter Block and Lew Rockwell when it comes to Trump. Is he a libertarian? Of course not. But is he causing trouble for the political establishment and bringing shame and folly onto national politics? YES! And for those reasons, he is the best candidate around and I hope he stays the bull-in-a-china-shop spoiler for the GOP for as long as possible.
If you have a case of Trump derangement syndrome so bad that you are actually cheering on the purging of anti-establishment, pro-liberty voices from the conservative movement and cheering on the GOP establishment rigging the circus in the favor of Goldman Ted, then yes, you have joined the lynch mob and shown your true colors.
