Subscribe to Boiling Frogs Post for the full episode

From Boiling Frogs Post:

With the presidential election seemingly looming over everything in this episode we look back at Ron Paul and his movement, and ask the question: Was he the answer? The three of us break down how all of us got involved in the Ron Paul Revolution and libertarian politics. We discuss how the movement represented a different choice to politics than the rest of the mainstream. Pearse Redmond shakes things up by asking whether Ron Paul was really about change, or whether he was about shifting the alternative community back into the Republican Party. We also touch on the nefarious individuals involved in the campaign that may have played a part in derailing the message of Paul. Later we move on to Rand Paul and break down how he represents a near complete reversal of his father. As we round out the conversation we explore the libertarian movement as a whole and discuss the near absence of women with in it. We also touch on why there are so few women in the alt-media, and the abhorrent way that they are treated by a majority community.

Why Libertarianism is the only way

Unfortunately most of the American population seems to view Libertarianism and traditional Conservatism as evil.  Rather than explore Libertarianism most Americans would rather denigrate it as a political ideology embraced by gun nuts and fringe candidates.  In the wake of Paul Ryan being chosen as Mitt Romney’s VP several news outlets published stories about how Libertarians were now suddenly going to shift over to the Romney camp.  Paul Ryan is not a Libertarian.  Just because you have read Ayn Rand and want to cut the budget does not make you a Libertarian.  In fact it is people like Paul Ryan who have given a bad name to both Libertarians and traditional Old Right Conservatives.  Well I have decided that Porkins Policy Review needs a shift.  Many people such as my self have had to hide our Libertarian leanings from our friends and family so as not to be ostracized.  Well it is time to come out of hiding and educate people on the virtues of Libertarianism.  The best place to start educating people is on the Libertarian stance on war.  So please watch the above video and read the link.  You may find out that you have a lot more in common with Libertarians than previously expected.
