My friend Anthony Gregory and I sometimes argue about whether the Left or the Right is closer to libertarianism or more likely to be sympathetic. I say the Right without the slightest hesitation, partly because that’s where I myself come from and partly because I have seen with my own eyes how some of those folks have been persuaded of our position. I know some people have been converted from the Left, and that’s great. But for a variety of reasons, I think the Right is far more reachable. They have given me a much more sympathetic hearing than the Left has, that’s for sure.
Now further evidence for my side has come in: the right-wing site WorldNetDaily has named Ron Paul its Man of the Decade. Would Mother Jones, or The Nation, or even CounterPunch.org have done that?
