“Majorities, as such, afford no guarantees for justice… They [are] … likely to be equally — perhaps more than equally, because more boldly — rapacious, tyrannical and unprincipled, if entrusted with power. There is no more reason, then, why a man should either sustain, or submit to, the rule of the majority, than of a minority.”     Lysander Spooner

Ron Paul vs. Sean Hannity

by Doug Mataconis

Sean Hannity is not a person to go to if you want reasoned discussion of the issues. Even more than Rush Limbaugh, who famously said after the 2006 elections that he wasn’t going to carry the GOP’s water anymore and seems to be living up to that statement so far, Hannity has drunk so much of the George W. Bush Kool-Aid that he seems incapable of even understanding what someone who dares to question el Presidente’s actions, as this post-debate interview with Ron Paul makes clear:

All in all, I think Paul came out on top but I’m sure Hannity’s yes-man audience completely missed the point of what he was saying.

  1. I respect Sean Hannity, but this is rediculous! Ron Paul is simply stating a fact and is treated like a traitor. I think people should call in and ask him about this issue on his radio show… And I would love to see Ron Paul and Guilliani go head to head.

    Meanwhile, online, there is a strong buzz (Link) that Ron Paul has been ignored by the mainstream media in regard to his impressive Internet demonstrated accomplishments”

  7. Osama’s 1996 “Declaration of War against the Americans Occupying the Land of the Two Holy Places” specifically mentioned the situation in Iraq, blaming the U.S. for the impact of economic sanctions on the Saddam Hussein regime. Bin Laden accused the U.S. of “aggression” against Iraq!
    Giuliani said he never heard that before? Then he repeat the Bush line: “they hate our freedom” (but only a simple mind would believe that)! It turns out that Paul’s point–that the 9/11 attacks were linked to U.S involvement in Iraq and the Middle East-was factually correct.
