I believe that the true Libertarians, like Ron Paul, and Pat Buchanan are authentic, and have a lot to say, that sounds so good..
BUT, when you listen to the whole package, you begin to hear that ticking sound, getting louder and louder, and thats when you realize it’s a Time-Bomb!! HA!
Pat Buchanan? A Libertarian? That's news to him.
Daily Bell: Are you more libertarian and less conservative now or vice versa? What is the difference between a libertarian and a conservative? Are you surprised at the ascendency of libertarian thought in the 21st century?
Pat Buchanan: I am more of a traditionalist conservative than I am a libertarian but I share with Ron Paul the view that America has become an over-extended empire. After the Cold War we should have downsized the empire dramatically and returned to become a more normal nation in a more normal time.
I believe government has gotten too huge. Republicans have colluded with Democrats to make it so and I am pessimistic that we're ever going to be able to turn this around.
