[quote:Anonymous Coward 22573996:MV8yMDExOTk0XzMzODA4MTgyXzIzRkJCMzhE] The Ron Paul "R3V0LUTION" is/was based upon the faulty notion that freedom is derived from tyranny. That's one good reason it failed. That's just one in a series of ridiculous contradictions: "Most minarchists/constitutionalists would agree that we live under a government (governments, actually) of delegated powers and authorities. They would also agree that no individual or group of individuals has the legitimate authority to extract property from another by force, no matter how 'noble' the reasons for doing so may be. Logically, since legitimate government powers are delegated, and no individual or group of individuals has the right to extract property from others by force, there was NEVER any power of taxation to delegate in the first place. One can't delegate a power one doesn't possess." "At what point does armed robbery become magically transformed into something just, right and proper (taxation)? How many people does it take for the EXACT SAME ACT to be transformed from a moral outrage into a righteous act? And, exactly how does this magical transformation occur? Also, from where exactly did the DELEGATED power to tax come from? What is its legitimate source? WHO EXACTLY had such a power to give to government in the first place? I've yet to see ANY minarchist/constitutionalist provide a reasonable answer to any of those questions." [/quote]
Why did the Ron Paul re3volution completely fail? We were promised a "re3volution" this time but the whole Ron Paul "movement" seems to have completely petered out.
Was it really all about legalization of marijuana as my neighbor said? Did all the Ron Paul fans get their medical marijuana card? Is that why the "movement" just went up in smoke (pun intended)?
