Off course they were racists. Many of them bigots and white supremacists to. But in their particular time they were about the most libertarian, tolerant and freedom-loving individuals to. People who were willing to take risks, make a new life, and seek freedom and prosperity in places where no welfarestate stood ready to cuddle for them. And so what?

If you dont want to get fat, eat less, eat healthy and exercise. If you dont want to be broke all the time, start living within your means. If you dont want to get wet, stay out of the rain. And: IF YOU DONT WANT YOUR YOUNG MEN SLAYN, DONT SEND THEM TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE PLANET TO FIGHT WARS THE COUNTRY CANT AFFORD, TO PROTECT PEOPLE WHO DOESNT CARE, AND HOGTIED BY POLITICAL RESTRAINTS.
Keep the bloody schoolsystem out of marriage and family - and the state too! Schools are there to teach the children to read, write and do math. Ethics, religion, values, dicipline - are all private areas, exclusively for the parents and child. The schools are already TERRIBLE in educating young ones in basic knowledge. Why on earth would anybody in their right frame of mind want to give teachers MORE power over your children???

"If Republicans can’t figure out how to message the importance and virtues of self-reliance and rugged individualism again" - The republicans???? And "individualism" in the same sentence. Are you f... kidding me? The only party guarding individualism, less government and more freedom and responsibility for the individual are the Libertarian Party. Mentioning the republicans in this setting, is like labeling marxists as humanists.
"I realize that many grassroots conservatives loathe the guy. But a party that's gotten its butt kicked in the last two presidential cycles by appealing to a small and shrinking slice of the electorate ignores the numbers below at its peril" - Its not about getting elected, Mr. Benson. Its about policy. Let democrats concentrate about failed democratic policies. Thats not the job of republicans. And If the republican party are only gonna mimick democrats, then its place in american politics are in reality over, and its just a matter of time before the process ends its course, and the country will be split in a truely teaparty/libertarian/conservative wing on one hand, and a semi sosialistic/socialdemocratic wing on the other. Democrats are marching to the left, in a direction towards destroying the republic. If republicans wants to follow, then its over, and everybody should watch "Doomsday Preppers" on TV to pick up some good points....
