Ron Paul's False Founding Narrative

* https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zogU8jZ-gKE

"When Ron Paul claims that Lincoln "shouldn't have gone to war," he is deploying a convenient and erroneous frame which necessarily holds that the inciting aggression was not in raising an Army, seizing federal property and arms, urging revolution among ones neighbors, and then firing on a federal fort, but in democratically electing a president with whom slave-holders disagreed."

"I think that reply sums up quite well my problem with the Ron Paul crowd. They tend to have little respect for reason. They often cannot or simply will not be persuaded by logic. When the basic incompatibility of their view with factual reality is laid out before them in plain language they can only conclude that it must be the facts which are misguided rather than their own politics."
