Now we have Daniel Hannen handing a virtual beating to Prime Minister Gordon Brown of the UK, and what a smackdown it is. Now, being a Tory, I don’t think Hannan is channeling Murray Rothbard,but he is channeling something. Possible Thatcher or maybe even Churchill?
Either way, I am liking it!
The chances of someone stepping up in our country on a platform of Libertarianism so pure as to approach Anarcho-Capitalism, or anarchy, is slim. It is even more slim that that person would be anything but marginalized.
With that in mind, we need to look for the second best candidate. Someone principled and tough as nails. Someone that will say and do what is needed without sticking a finger up to see which way the wind is blowing.
Ron Paul did not have a big enough roar and was marginalized.
Bobby Jindal has the principles, but he also knows how to not stir the pot.
Sarah Palin seems to have what it takes, but this past election has left a few questions. These need to be answered and her roar would have to grow as well.
Daniel Hannon roared with total belief in his words and his positions. He brought energy into that room. He inspired those of like beliefs. And he did all of this right into the face of the man he was shaming. Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
No wavering. No caveats. No complements to smooth things over. Just straight talk that needed to be said.
I would love to have someone take a lead with solid Libertarian ideals. I will however settle for someone that has balls and principles like Danial Hannan.
So where is that person?
I suggest we send out a search party ASAP!
