    For believing in spontaneous order, which, when gone bad results in racism and a credit crisis, you have my Libertarian Wall of Shame:

    Adam Smith

    Carl Menger

    Friedrich Hayek

    Milton Friedman

    John Stossel

    David Stockman

    Larry Summers

    Ron Paul

    Alan Greenspan

    Peter Schiff

    ludwig Von Mises

    John Locke

    Thomas Sowell

    Murray Rothbard

    Classic Liberalism is what is known today as libertarianism

      I'm not sure that people should be shamed for being libertarian, but we're all enttiled to our opinion smile. Regardless of what you think about Ron Paul for example, at least he sticks to his principles. Most democrats and republicans pay lip service to get elected, then act totally different when in power.

        LOL, you ate that list up, didn't you?

        Pssst - Alan Greenspan isn't a libertarian by any stretch of the imagination. Also, many of those names are of minorities!!

        Wake up, you're being manipulated.

          Stockmen really isn't either, and Friedman actually grew out of it in his later years.  I was just put off that your name was noticeably absent.

      The more you type, the more people realize you're not worth reading. It's very clear that you use Ron Paul's name to get people to read your articles/posts.

      "Because something once led to racism in one or two cases, these people are all racists!!"

      "I apparently lack understanding of basic causality! But that won't stop me!"

      Dude, give it up. Half of those people were Jews, and many of them were ran from racists trying to murder them for being Jewish. And one of the members is black, Thomas Sowell.

      WHAT THE F**KING HELL IS ALAN GREENSPAN'S NAME DOING ON THAT LIST!!! No self-respecting libertarian could EVER call the Master-Of-Deceit-and-Theft a Libertarian.

      How in the hell could you possibly put Alan Greenspan on a list of libertarians?! How daft can you be?


      Get your head out of your nether regions and quit equating "people are free" with "people are racists".

      Jeezus Christ: you're equating John Locke with a racist? He pretty much founded the States' revolutions. Why isn't Thomas Paine up there? Or Thomas Jefferson?

      There are so many names you COULD have put on there, but ignored.

    The list is now complete...
