And really...what's more important in your shangri-la of small government and liberty than the right of every citizen to simply vote?
So sure...society back then was fantastic for those privledged (sic) while males with money.
None of the things you just listed is part of the libertarian policy.
So, you don't like the politics of Ron Paul.
First try - his politics are new and radical, it would be some great experiment to elect him.
False - many of the previous presidents had the same political views about foreign policy, central banks and monetary policy.
So now that that's established you are attempting to condemn him based on politics they had that Ron Paul doesn't agree with?
I'll agree that when the founders said freedom for all they didn't really mean it, but that doesn't make freedom for all a bad idea.
Nor do the few things you constantly harp on about the early US have anything to do with central bank or monetary policy. Maybe we need a new Godwin's law. How about any time anyone mentions anything about a president before Lincoln, Donkey will bring up slavery, no matter how unrelated it is to the subject.
