CATO recites Castro Talking Points –right down to the “ands” and “the’s”

They don't call libertarians "The "Marxists of the Right" for nothing.

Most act like perennial college geeks, drunk on dogma, blind to evidence, always arguing (with their noses in the air) against their peers and professor, to showcase their superior erudition, always obtained from obscure "thus cool" sources.

We all remember such high-school and college-era chums, who showcased their "coolnesss" by their knowledge (and supposed liking) of obscure progressive jazz and rock/folk music.

Unsurprisingly, the CATO scholar's article runs in the dependable Castro-regime mouthpiece; The UK Guardian.

Same old...same old.....

    Oh so right Humberto. They are rather annoying. Cult-like behavior, blindly dogmatic, and absolutely perfect "useful idiots" for the likes of Fidel.

    Don't forget that it's always easy to speculate, theorize and otherwise mentally masturbate about stuff when you really don't know shit about it and don't really give a shit about it, either.

    I sadly know several "libertarians" who unfortunately subscribe to Ron Paul's "anti-imperialism" and thus sometimes sound almost like Fidel Castro/Che Guevara.
