Who Wrote Ron Paul’s Newsletters?Reason #2008_AtNovember 9, 2019
Ron Paul doesn’t seem to know much about his own newsletters.
Rockwell has denied responsibility for the newsletters’ contents to The New Republic ‘s Jamie Kirchick.
Paul himself called the controversy “old news” and “ancient history” when we reached him last week, and he has not responded to further request for comment.
But a source close to the Paul presidential campaign told reason that Rockwell authored much of the content of the Political Report and Survival Report .
Rockwell was publicly named as Paul’s ghostwriter as far back as a 1988 issue of the now-defunct movement monthly American Libertarian .
“This was based on my understanding at the time that Lew would write things that appeared in Ron’s various newsletters,” former AL editor Mike Holmes told reason .
Blumert , Paul’s 1988 campaign chairman and a private supporter this year, did not respond to a request for an interview; Rothbard died in 1995.
The early 1990s writings became liabilities for Paul long before last week’s NewRepublic story.
The presidential campaign Rothbard and Rockwell supported in 1988 was Ron Paul’s run on the Libertarian Party ticket.
They are less angry these days.
Adult spanking is a curious thing. I mean, most of us did not like being spanked as children. We dreaded spankings, didn’t we? So, why do so many of us long to be spanked as adults. I think for some of us, it is for sexual pleasure. For others, it is to meet an emotional need. Maybe we feel we deserve it before we enjoy fucking. Some parts of society make women feel we are bad if we enjoy being fucked. So, maybe we feel better about our longing if we are punished first. I will tell you why I want you to spank me.
