The Cato Institute is a Libertarian think tank, funded by the Koch brothers, that claims to be dedicated to individual liberty, limited government, free markets, and peace. Cato’s VP of Research, Brink Lindsey, recently sent multiple tweets calling Ron Paul a xenophobe and a conspiracy theorist. He described Paul’s philosophy as a “hideous corruption of libertarian ideas.” [We expect to see a loss of public support for Cato and The Koch Brothers if Lindsay is not jettisoned into deep space for these comments.] –GEG
Following his attack on Ron Paul, Lindsey also attacked libertarian theorist and luminary Murray Rothbard, whom Ron Paul had called “the founder of the modern libertarian movement.” In the tweet, Lindsey blamed Rothbard for the “ugly illiberal streak” within the libertarian movement:
This is not the first time that Lindsey attacked Ron Paul or the people surrounding him. In a 2007 article authored by Chris Hayes for The Nation, Lindsey described Ron Paul supporters as “a weird group of people,” consisting of libertarians, anti-war types, nationalists, and “xenophobes.”

Nathan Larson is running for Congress on a platform of less government, an end to wars in the Middle East, defense of the Second Amendment, and closing the borders. However, he also has a background of violence, rape, and pedophilia. His candidacy is ideal for collectivists who want to paint all who oppose them as despicable characters. Could it be that collectivists are his hidden sponsors and handlers? If so, this is a classic case of controlled opposition – which means action that appears to be opposition but really is designed to damage or destroy genuine opposition.
Ron Paul analyzes President Trump’s first speech before Congress from a Libertarian perspective and gives him an A- grade for his goals but an F for his methods to achieve them. For example, Trump wants to spend $1 trillion on infrastructure, but there is no money available for that, so it is likely that he will depend on the Federal Reserves to simply print it, leading to more debt and inflation. Paul said that cutting corporate taxes is a great idea, but that spending must also be cut, otherwise, there will be disaster. One of the primary purposes of a just state is to protect liberty, and Paul was disappointed that Trump did not mention liberty in his speech.
The Federal Reserve raised the interest rate one-quarter of a percent. In response, the US dollar dropped by 1%, gold rose a bit, and stocks skyrocketed. Debt is soaring while the GDP is falling, which is the forerunner of inflation and depression at the same time.
