Move to Start a Libertarian Student Group at Marquette

A Marquette student named Ryan Kulp wants to start an organization called Students for Liberty on the Marquette campus.

You can see the flyer here.

A lot of people call themselves libertarians, and we rather like some and aren’t a fan of some others. We think of Ron Paul as close to being a crackpot. And the Wisconsin Libertarian Party has had a badly misbegotten flirtation with 9/11 conspiracy theories.

On the other hand, the flyer associates Students for Liberty with the Cato Institute and the Institute for Humane Studies, two organization for which we have a great deal of respect.

Our view about speech and political discourse on campus is “the more, the merrier.”

Kulp only needs a small handful of students to sign on to begin the process of getting recognition as a student group at Marquette.

Any student who is a Ron Paul fan, or maybe not a Ron Paul fan but considers themselves a libertarian, would do well to contact Kulp and ask for more information.

Why do you think Ron Paul is a crackpot?

So I assume the Marquette Libertarians will be supporting abortion and gay marriage rights?
