Yes, we knew that - I put it there in case someone was too lazy to read the article.

Anti-war and libertarianism go hand-in-hand.  I'm not claiming that ALL libertarians are anti-war, but it's safe to say that the greater majority are.


I would agree and I would even make being antiwar a qualifier.

Sure, me too. But for a fact, we are for not starting wars and not getting involved in other people's wars.

That doesn't make us pacifists.

Being liberal/libertarian doesn't mean you should roll over and expose your neck to barbarians... Unless you want to. That would be part of your Right to general Liberty.

Raimondo is catching up to reality finally. But he still doesn't completely understand that China is working N.K. like it's puppet.

This Raimondo person is ill-informed? That's been common knowledge for many many years... At least since 1950.

Edit: Does anyone know when the Soviet Union lost control of the Kim Dynasty? Was it before 1950?

He's been the editorial writer since 99 and the Kosovo war that Clinton started. Raimondo is apparently still in the hospital with problems that relate to some greater cause, which could be Aids. He's gay. That's just a wild guess because he's had ongoing problems for over a year. We'll soon find out most likely.

He's been a pretty good libertarian in the years since 99 and has helped the party more than he hurt it. But he's non-commital and flighty and so often writes nonsense that he has to later live with.

About as good as a libertarian gets IMO. If he wasn't gay he could have done a better job than Johnson. And he doesn't look near as goofy.

Having said that, I realize that the antiwar movement in the US has never represented a big enough faction to make it a political challenge to the two major corrupt parties.

I guess that means you don't know when control of the Kim Dynasty passed from the Soviets to the Chinese Communists?
