Libertarians ?

About: youtube - bill maher talks with the next president of america

Interesting mini discussion between Bill Maher & Ron Paul.  I don't think much about Bill Maher as a libertarian because that would put he & I in the same political niche.

For some reason I think this cartoon is appropriate here even though Ron Paul thinks he is a republican.  Maybe this article will help.

Mark de LA says

Rand Paul acting like spokesman for Ron Paul on Frank Luntz's SuperTuesday preview expressed again Ron Paul's foreign policy stating that Congress must declare all wars that the president commits troops & money to. THe challenge is that with an insurgency or terror group there is no country to declare war on. Bush started a "war on terror" & got Congress to OK it. Apparently that is not enough for RP? The basic question is How do you declare war on AlQueda or the terrorists who still attack countries throughout the World? Iran is apparently the biggest exporter of terrorism. Declare war on her?

Mark de LA says
This article presents some amendments to the defense authorization bill which seem inappropriate for appropriations bill. But, this is how things get done in the Congress - picture later (**).
..
For me it brings the following conflicts to mind:  Ron Paul never seems to worry about the details as far as I can tell:
  1. Opportunities for all the entourage of the defense & prosecution to make a circus & perhaps the entry of terrorists & those who want to make similar statements.
  2. The opportunity to get valuble intel from those caught red-handed disappears.
  3. Given most of the above those in the military are more likely to just kill the perpetrators much in the same way that drones kill terrorists in Afghanistan, Pakistan & Yemen. (others?). No trials - no problems. 
  4. finally, the danger that a terrorist will cut a deal & get set free or get a light enough sentence to return to attack America again another day.
  5. Circuses in the public courts like those anticipated by NY city over the trials of the 9/11 killers.
