Hi Walter, Do you really want to be identified with a guy that is described this way (Bernie Sanders, “Socialist”; “monster”)? I think it is one of the best descriptions of Bernie that I have come across. I believe that if he were to get into a position of power (God forbid), he would probably flip flop like so many others have. It is not a good enough reason to support this monster. Regards, LM

Dear LM: I don’t want to support this monster. I want to make common cause with him in order to promote a Ron Paul foreign policy, and try to convert him and his followers to libertarianism. Yes, Bernie’s a commie-pinko-socialist. Sort of like Noam Chomsky. But both are good on foreign policy. No. Make that very good. As I said before, if Murray Rothbard could support the Peace and Freedom Party (composed mainly of Trotskyites and Progressive Labor, the Maoist group) in an effort to stop the Viet Nam war, then I can certainly contemplate doing something similar with my old high school buddy and fellow track team member, Bernie. But, not because of my personal association with him. Rather, because it makes good strategic sense.
