Thoughts, essays, and writings on Liberty. Written by the heirs of Patrick Henry.

“That men may rightfully be compelled to submit to, and support, a government that they do not want…No principle … can be more self-evidently false than this; or more self-evidently fatal to all political freedom … a man, thus subjected to a government that he does not want, is a slave. And there is no difference, in principle — but only in degree — between political and chattel slavery. The former, no less than the latter, denies a man's ownership of himself and the products of his labor; and asserts that other men may own him, and dispose of him and his property, for their uses, and at their pleasure.”     Lysander Spooner

Ron Paul vs. Sean Hannity

by Doug Mataconis

Congressman Paul appeared on Sean Hannity’s show after last night’s debate, and the result was entirely predictable

Congressman, I don’t agree with everything you have to say on foreign policy, but there’s no point in trying to debate an intellectual pinhead.

  1. Sean Hannity is simply a talking head for the Republican Party. I can’t stand when he’s not intellectually honest about anything and instead throws out GOP talking points. Instead of shouting people down Sean, how about being willing to have a real debate.

  2. Hannity did what he always does, distort facts, present revisionist history, and shout down his guests in order to expound on his personal platform. He’s the Morton Downey, Jr. of this decade.

    I was surprised to see Colmes looking a bit more animated and offering competent insight…usually he seems content to play whipping boy for Hannity’s grandstanding.

  3. Sean Hannity should be the last guy to call someone an intellectual pinhead. He hasn’t had a original idea since they dried his ears. He’s a bought-and-paid-for shill of the Bush Administration and its GOP version of political correctness. He can’t see past his nose-hairs.

    I recall hearing Sean Hannity assure his listeners that we WOULD find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. O’Reilly said the same thing but at least apologized to his listeners when it didn’t happen. However, neither of these idiots has the brains to figure out that there are serious implications to being lied to. After all, if you have to lie about your reasons, your REAL reasons can’t be all that convincing can they?

    But that’s way too deep for the likes of Hannity.
