I want to see Tumblr’s libertarian community defend this.
I haven’t even seen any of the defenses of this and I already insist they be collected and published as a book
Equal parts Betty Crocker and Ayn Rand, recipes include Easy Oreo Truffles (made of cream cheese and crushed Oreos, natch), Golfer’s Chicken (don’t forget the powdered onion soup mix, salad dressing and apricot jam) and Zippy Olive Beef Spread (leftover wine, cream cheese, mayonnaise, cocktail olives, shredded beef and a little bit of puking in your own mouth). Mrs. Paul prepares these family favorites in an apron embroidered with “End the Fed”.
Like so much of the Paul’s very special brand of libertarianism, it’s really just an excuse to ignore common sense and prop up corporations at the expense of your own well-being.

How Ron Paul used racist newsletters to wipe out debts, get rich
Has gone on record that he had no knowledge of the content of the racist newsletters that bore his name AND signature,
But has not only quoted them, but personally defended the newsletters in the past,
But also REFERENCED HIMSELF in the newsletters.
And later admitted he WAS aware of the contents and that only “some of [it was] offensive,”
Ron Paul signed off on racist newsletters in the 1990s, associates say

“Race Terrorism in America” by Ron Paul (PDF)
Ron Paul’s Newsletters. Scanned. See the originals for yourself. They’re worse than they’ve been quoted for.
Ron Paul wants to define life as starting at conception, build a fence along the US-Mexico border, prevent the Supreme Court from hearing cases on the Establishment Clause or the right to privacy, permitting the return of sodomy laws and the like (a bill which he has repeatedly re-introduced), pull out of the UN, disband NATO, end birthright citizenship, deny federal funding to any organisation which “which presents male or female homosexuality as an acceptable alternative life style or which suggest that it can be an acceptable life style” along with destroying public education and social security, and abolish the Federal Reserve in order to put America back on the gold standard. He was also the sole vote against divesting US federal government investments in corporations doing business with the genocidal government of the Sudan.
Oh, and he believes that the Left is waging a war on religion and Christmas, he’s against gay marriage, is against the popular vote, opposes the Civil Rights Act of 1964, wants the estate tax repealed, is STILL making racist remarks, believes that the Panama Canal should be the property of the United States, and believes in New World Order conspiracy theories, not to mention his belief that the International Baccalaureate program is UN mind control.
Can I also add “and sexist”?
