I Went to Rand Paul’s Liberty School, and All I Got Was a Free Cup of Coffee

    I’m guessing you went there to rabble-rouse like a good little Marxist does at liberty,not anarchy,meetings. Shame…you will never know true freedom because if you’re feeding at the trough of liberal left’s talking points,you shall always be a puppet . Of course you’ll disagree so what’s the sense or use ?

      Johnny, Openness is a characteristic of the democratic process. Liberty is based on knowledge, and trust . The TP apparently does not believe so. It is information and knowledge that sets you free . Secrecy, willful ignorance and stringent ideological orthodoxy are characteristics of political corruption and fascism .

      Bleah – if you want to hurl invective, there are plenty of people inviting it. Just look at the Atlantic’s online ‘business’ blogs. Heck, go and look at Christina’s other posts, which might actually express opinions (I don’t know)?

      I’m a libertarian curious about the FACL program and would have been interested in a story about it, whatever the slant. I can read past the slant.

  • Andre Leonard

    That’s not a course on liberty. Liberty is free.. This was another scam..

    “an instructor with “years of experience running and winning campaigns and legislative projects in multiple state legislatures.” That’s Rand Paul for you. Not the brightest penny in the jar.

    Those people organizing this are miserable people. They have Dunkin’ Donuts coffee but no Dunkin’ Donuts. I live hundreds of miles from the nearest Dunkin’ Donuts.

  • D.C.J.

    Wow, Christina Bellantoni you had that correct. Paragraph 24, Line 2, “as a reporting tool.” That you show yourself to be. Sounds like you may be a knuckle head wrench, or should that be “wench?”

    • TheNate

      Well, at least she’s not a “nut” like you.

      • D.C.J.

        TheNate; Oh my. Don’t be such a “Tommy Tough Nuts.” Now go climb your Obama issued Rubber Rope some more. Yaawwnnn.

        • TheNate

          Try again, D.C.J., only this time don’t be stupid and incoherent. I know it may take all night to think of something intelligent, but do your best and I’ll bear in mind you’re trying something new this time.

          • D.C.J.

            1-800-Wah-Bu-Lance!!!!

  • Mark Hammel

    While some Western success has been due to capital, the liberty that unleashes its citizens’ ingenuity and courage has been more important.

    I have a really good recommendation of a website I just found called Traders Superstore, just do a search for them he should be able to find them. I recommend these guys because there course material is top-notch and their support is the best I’ve ever seen on the Internet. These guys take seriously teaching people how to trade and I’m very happy to recommend them to anyone interested in learning to trade for themselves, it really is a very lucrative business.

    THE REPUBLICAN PARTY HAS DECLARED WAR ON THE POOR AND UNEMPLOYED IN OUR COUNTRY. THEY HAVE BECOME SO DISCONECTED FROM THE PEOPLE THAT THEY HAVE NO CLUES AS TO WHAT IS HAPPENING OUT IN THE “REAL WORLD”. MILLIONS OF UNEMPLOYED FAMILIES HAVE SUFFERED BECAUSE OF THEIR LACK OF COMPASSION AND HUMAN DECENCY. SINCE LATE LAST DECEMBER, MORE THAN 2.6 MILLION AMERICANS HAVE BEEN WITHOUT UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS, BECAUSE OF THE REPUBLICANS “PARTY POLITICS”, AND POLITICAL AGENDA, THE REPUBLICANS HAVE HELD THE MUCH NEEDED EXTENSION BILL “HOSTAGE” FOR POLITICAL LEVERAGE, AND PARTY AGENDAS. THEY HAVE LACKED COMAPSSION AND COMMON DECENCY, BY USING THESE UNEMPLOYED FAMILIES AS BARGAINING CHIPS, TO GET THEIR BILLS PASSED IN RETURN IN THE SENATE. THEY HAVE DRAGGED THEIR FEET FOR THE PAST FIVE MONTHS, CAUSING DELAY AFTER DELAY, IN THE HOPES OF MAKING IT IMPOSSIBE TO EVER HAVE THE EXTENSION BILL PASSED. NOW, IT’S THE END OF MAY, AND THEY ARE NOW SAYING THAT IT’S NOW TOO LATE TO PASS THE BILL. THEY KNEW THIS FROM THE START, AND THEY DELIBERATELY MADE SURE IT WOULD BE TOO LATE. MILLIONS OF THESE FAMILIES HAVE FACED EVICTIONS, HOME FORECLOSURES, BANKRUPTCY, AND HOMELESSNESS, AND THEY COULDN’T HAVE CARED LESS. THE REPUBLICANS HAVE BEEN A HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT TO THEIR “FORMER” REPUBLICAN CONSTITUENTS. THEY HAVE SHOWN THE WORLD FOR WHOM THEY REPRESENT AND WORK FOR, AND IT’S NOT YOU OR ME. THEY REPRESENT PEOPLE LIKE THE KOCH BROTHERS, AND BIG CORPORATIONS. YOU KNOW, THE ONE PERCENT AT THE TOP. I HOPE THAT ALL THESE MILLIONS OF HURTING PEOPLE WILL MAKE SURE NOT TO VOTE REPUBLICAN IN THE COMING ELECTION. THEY’RE NOT WORTHY OF OUR VOTE
