27th September 2012 Tom Woods 19
I would also like to hear what Virgil Goode and Jill Stein have to say. And whoever else is on the ballot. But what if some of the candidates are not on all states’ ballots? (e.g. Gary Johnson)
Gary Johnson is going to have a hard time defending the idea of a freed market when he’s willing to file anti trust lawsuits.
Get a load of this:
Ron Paul Supporters Will Appreciate: Gary Johnson Files Anti Trust Claim Against the CPD in the Name of Liberty
No I do NOT appreciate him doing that. Anti trust laws secure monopolies rather than fight them, because they are based on a Marxist definition of “monopoly”.
Businesses who successfully get huge chunks of market share without government protections aren’t harming anyone.
Anti-Trust and Monopoly (with Ron Paul)

(Tom Woods on Monopolies)
Oh yeah, and …
Ron Paul Write In 2012! (Even if they refuse to count him.)
Ugh…why do libertarians keep giving this raving, screaming, conspiracy theorist, attention.
Is a presidential debate really part of the free market? I think Johnson should take whatever actions he can against these people. This is about who is going to govern, i.e. rule, us.
Agreed. Read any of his books and its obvious he’s a lefty occupy type. He constantly references Krugman and says we need socialism. Not to mention he supports obamacare.
I posted the video as a matter of general interest, but I agree: the attraction to Ventura in the RP community baffles me.
If you want to take a look at where the other candidates stand. Read this by Tom Eddlem. http://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/politics/item/12532-the-“other”-candidates-for-president
What you’re proposing is a kind of “Fairness Doctrine”.
You can’t force people to use their property in a way that’s against their will. We aren’t entitled to a particular kind or quality of broadcasting.
Ubiquity of influence is not a right.
I assumed that, since he was against the FEMA camps and he was promoted by Alex Jones (who is generally considered to be pro-Constitution), that he was also a Constitutionalist / free-market-guy.
I never before heard the accusation that he was pro Krugman or that he said we needed socialism. That’s news to me.
That’s what I assumed until I looked through American Conspiracies.
As far as the FEMA Camps thing goes, that’s real.
New Nationwide FEMA Camps Should Raise Eyebrows
“In a nutshell, there seems to be a solicitation of bids occurring for the staffing of FEMA camps within 72 hours of implementation by an order from either Homeland Security or the president.”
Exclusive: Government Activating FEMA Camps Across U.S.
“KBR’s call for FEMA camp service bids arrives soon after the Senate overwhelmingly passed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which permits the military to detain and interrogate supposed domestic terror suspects in violation of the Fourth Amendment and Posse Comitatus.”
The unconstitutional provision in the 2012 NDAA for the indefinite detention of civilians is also real.

Everyone freedom lover should embrace Jesse Ventura.
If you were taken to a torture camp and the only person who could help
you break out was a totally despicable character, would you stay in the
torture camp to avoid “supporting” and goon?
Anyone who can help break the monopoly is a friend to freedom. It is the monopoly that is holding back progress, not disagreeable opinions. After the monopoly is cracked, it will still be up to the freedom lovers to educate. But the barrier to application will have been removed.
I never said he was wrong about the fema camps. He’s just an idiot about a lot of other things and libertarians therefor shouldn’t listen to someone who said he supports obamacare on pierce morgan.
Thank you, Tom! I realize that as there aren’t nearly as many libertarians as there should be we can’t necessarily be picky about whom we ally ourselves with, but we do serious damage to the cause of freedom by associating ourselves with Jesse Ventura and Alex Jones type people. Just because the establishment is atrocious we shouldn’t assume that every anti-establishment figure is our friend or a valuable ally.
You do realize Ventura is either a raving lunatic or a pro-wrestling style con-man? Check out his latest Howard Stern appearance. He even embarrasses Howard sometimes.
Amen to that conclusion Dennis.
Have to admit though, that I have a soft spot for people who might be politically wrong for the right reason, which still – however politically dis(in)formed – could be the desire to be free.
Some people can – in the end – turn themselves around if they step back from all the politicized humbug and appreciate truth for what it really is, and then bear witness to it.
Kind regs from / Amsterdam (clip) /,
Agree Dave. And in response to guest, the CPD is a non-profit corporation created and controlled by the Democrat and Republican parties. They use the CPD to monopolize part of the election process. The CPD subverts free markets, not propmote them. Kudos to Johnson for trying to crack that bitch open. He’ll probably be unsuccessful though, unfortunately.
Tom, how does that Anti Trust joke of yours, ‘three businessman are in prison talking about being convicted of offenses against the Anti Trust laws, finish?
