The Nation: Patricia Williams: "Paul Ryan's Libertarian America"
Paul Ryan is no more Libertarian then John McCain or a politician of that mindset, he's an Economic Conservative. And thats really where his Conservatism ends, he doesn't push Social Issues for the most part and hasn't laid out clearly where he is on Foreign Policy. For someone to be a real Conservative or Libertarian, they have to believe that Americans should have the right to live their. Own lives, that government shouldn't interfere with how we live our own lives, unless we aren't hurting innocent people with what we are doing, another words believing in Freedom of Choice. As long as we aren't hurting innocent people with the choices that we make and that seems to be what Patricia Williams doesn't understand about Libertarianism, because thats not where Paul Ryan. Is ideologically, at least from what we know about him so far, the only solid thing that we know about Paul Ryan, is that he's an Economic Conservative.
