If you look at the Ron Paul newsletters and/or the things authored by Magda's hero Lew Rockwell back in the pre-internet age, some of which survives, it could make one wonder.
I tend to think the truth is more along the lines of Magda deciding long ago that she wanted to be a part of this particular fringe group, and then attempted to adopt all its ideologies. Her not being able to argue for them cogently is due to the lack of a comprehensive worldview underpinning them. It's simple to do the label-it-and-demonize-it argumentation style she usually employs here, but when challenged you get the tapdance we've seen in this thread.
I'm a paleo-conservative --not a libertarian. Lew Rockwell, a true and complete libertarian is not my hero. I read his site because of certain issues. The Paul newsletters were parsed and debated and the true author was eventually unearthed which I posted.
I used to spend a lot of time crafting arguments more carefully but it does use up too much time. So now I post more quickly. And if I think someone is going to tie me up too long, and there are two here, and I don't want to get into something I don't.
If you don't like it you can use ignore. A Christian like you who rarely practices his beliefs should use it.
