Anyone reading the novel Full Black by New York Times #1 bestselling novelist Brad Thor might be tempted to say, "This author is a libertarian!"

Early in the novel a documentary film producer describes what his investigation has turned up:

"What we discovered was that beginning in the 1940s, radical elements inside the United States had recognized that there were these huge piles of money just sitting inside multiple large foundations and endowments all across the country. These big government collectivists, globalists, socialists and communists realized that if they could get into positions of power, say on the boards of directors at the foundations or the endowments, they could steer the money any way they wanted. And that is exactly what they did."

In Full Black the super rich fascist Utopian globalist whose agenda is to bring America to it's knees so a new world order can arise from the ashes is not named George Soros, but James Standing.

"On top of indoctrinating kids, Standing wanted to get as many people dependent upon the government as possible. Government handouts, even for corporations, are like heroin. Most people, once they're hooked, remain hooked and don't even realize it. They rationalize that they are entitled to the handouts.

"History also shows us that once a democracy goes down this road.... Each and every single time, the democracy collapses. It always happens. Democracy is always followed by dictatorship. And guess what the dictator promises?"

In one setting, this globalist socialist mega-billionaire is attempting to hoodwink a young female reporter who he wants to use for his purposes. She refuses to be tricked. She questions every one of his assertions (fascinating pages in the novel). Here is a short portion:

James Standing: "You have given me the usual shallow, shopworn defense of capitalism, but you haven't given me one concrete reason why my ideas are so unreasonable."

Reporter: "One concrete reason? I can actually give you four. First it is morally wrong to take anything that doesn't belong to you and having the state do the taking doesn't magically make it okay or right. Second, socialism has been tried repeatedly and has never worked, anywhere. Yet each new crop of elites think they can enact socialism and this time it will be different. They stick the socialist fork back in the electrical outlet expecting a totally different outcome, but it always ends up the same.

"Third, when people become reliant on the state, that reliance erodes their self-respect, their sense of self-worth, their work ethic, and their independence. Finally, socialism promotes class envy and class warfare. The makers resent the takers for draining their resources and the takers resent the makers because no matter how much the takers take, they always want more."

So the author, Brad Thor, is a libertarian, or a supporter of Ron Paul ... true or false?

Unfortunately, false.

Thor announces:“I am excited to add my endorsement to the growing list of prominent supporters who understand that Rick Santorum is the right man, at the right time to lead our nation.”

"Rick Santorum?" libertarians cry out stupefied. "Why?"

Thor explains, “There is one presidential candidate who understands and can swiftly address the threats facing our nation – and that candidate is Rick Santorum.”

A logical person might have expected Brad Thor to endorse Ron Paul. But as is too often the case, libertarians are viewed, whether correctly or incorrectly, as not understanding the foreign threats America faces. Libertarians have simply not convinced Americans that they too would take quick and decisive action to protect America.

If libertarians hope to someday constitute a majority in American politics, they are going to have to rectify their image of "head in the sand on foreign policy" and convince people like Brad Thor that they are indeed awake to foreign threats and indeed interested in defending America. They are going to have to become strong national defense libertarians.

To understand the evil psychology of modern "liberal progressives," read Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged"

"God's laws will keep your minds at peace, because peace IS His Will, and His laws are established to uphold it. His are the laws of freedom, but yours are the laws of bondage. Since freedom and bondage are irreconcilable, their laws CANNOT BE UNDERSTOOD TOGETHER. The laws of God work only for your good, and there ARE no other laws beside His. Everything else is merely lawLESS, and therefore chaotic." -Jesus Christ in A Course in Miracles
