Web & Blogs

The No. 1 Libertarian Blog? You're Reading It.

|

A website dedicated to web entrepreneurship comes up with a thorough and useful list of "The Top 100 Libertarian Blogs." Why?

While we at WebPreneur typically try to steer clear of politics, it is clear that issues such as net neutrality and controlling the size and scope of government are of increasing importance to web entrepreneurs. Thus a growing number of web entrepreneurs are expressing new found interest in libertarian principles. So to assist those of you interested in educating yourselves further, we've sorted through thousands of sites and selected the best of the best for what we believe to be the top 100 libertarian blogs…

Coming in at number one is this very blog you are reading, reason's Hit and Run.

Hit and Run has been previously praised by Playboy as one of "five winning political blogs" and by Washingtonian as one of the "best political blogs." Of course, what we are proudest of is how every day we are able to earn the attention and readership of each and every one of you.

  1. Of course, what we are proudest of is how every day we are able to earn the attention and readership of each and every one of you.

    You suck up, you.

  2. Of course, what we are proudest of is how every day we are able to earn the attention and readership of each and every one of you.

    Feel free to kiss my ass any time. It works.

  3. No Instapundit or QandO?

    I’m all for Libertarian Hotties, but come on.

    At least they got Volokh. Eugene for CJotSCOTUS!

  4. There’s actually 100 that are worth reading?

    Of course, what we are proudest of is how every day we are able to earn the attention and readership of each and every one of you.

    I think I just got a partial woody from that.

  5. Was there ever any question about who is #1?

  6. No Urkobold? But, but, we’re “a widely-read libertarian culture site”!

    Hit & Run deserves such recognition, in any case.

  7. What with Weigel, I think that reason.com is also the #1 Democratic party blog.

  8. Thus a growing number of web entrepreneurs are expressing new found interest in libertarian principles.

    Given the reports of widespread support for Obama in Silicon Valley, they must have found their interest in libertarian principles since November 4.

  9. This is a Libertarian blog?
    I thought this was an Obama blog.
    If that is the case, then screw you Glibertarians.

  10. Finally! A list of libertarian blogs in which Reason not only beat GovExec and FederalTimes but DC Cocktail Party Chatter Weekly! Congrats!

    Of course, some unknown website’s naming of Reason as something or other pre-dated Weigel’s recent post in which he downplayed BHO’s “civilian force” and didn’t even think about what happens when that “force” comes back to the “homeland” and whether they could be activated here.

  11. Contributors –

    Allow me to extend my congratulations for getting some well deserved recognition, guys and gals.

    Commenters who actually contribute something to the discuassion can take an unacknowledged bow as well.

  12. Wow, 100 libertarian blogs?!
    Do some libertarians have more than one blog?

  13. Of course, what we are proudest of is how every day we are able to earn the attention and readership of each and every one of you.

    Finally! A list of libertarian blogs in which Reason not only beat GovExec and FederalTimes but DC Cocktail Party Chatter Weekly! Congrats!

    When you say each and every one, that doesn’t include LoneShithead, right? RIGHT?!?

  14. Those commenters I mentioned above of course excludes lonewacko, lefiti and the like.

  15. Also, congratulations to Balko for placing 5th. He is a major contributor to libertarianism and awareness of very important issues.

  16. Commenters who actually contribute something to the discuassion can take an unacknowledged bow as well.

    If an commenter bows and no one acknowledges it, has he actually contributed?

    Not that the question pertains to me.

  17. WebPreneur is a truly terrible name for a blog.

  18. “Curse” you, “Lonewacko”!!!!!!!!”!”

  19. Of course, what we are proudest of is how every day we are able to earn the attention and readership of each and every one of you.

    Including the guy who sent you the link last night? 😉

    [reaches around and pats hisself on the back while looking for the horn button marked ‘TWC’]

  20. Hit and Run has been previously praised by Playboy as one of “five winning political blogs”

    Was that in the Girls of Reason issue?

  21. Weigel’s recent post in which he downplayed BHO’s “civilian force”

    This would be the post that says the force is “not a good idea” but takes issue with the claim that it was “exactly what Hitler did in Nazi Germany.”

  22. Wow, 100 libertarian blogs?!
    Do some libertarians have more than one blog?

    I was kind of thinking along similar lines. DelMarDave sent me the link/list and my response to him was: Huh? There’s that many libertarian blogs?

  23. Congratulations. Well deserved.

  24. Libertarianism is a big tent, dude.

  25. *pats self on back*

  26. *pets self on dick*

  27. ALTHOUGH THE URKOBOLD IS FOND OF HIT & RUN, HE DOES NOT UNDERSTAND HOW IT SURPASSED LIBERTARIAN HOTTIES (“FREEDOM IS SEXY”) FOR THE NUMBER ONE SPOT. THE URKOBOLD IS VIEWING THE GALLERY RIGHT NOW. OH YEAH, BABY, TELL ME ABOUT FREEDOM.

    FREEEEEE-DOOOOOM!

  28. Congrats, everyone.

    Now that the Republican brand is thoroughly tarnished and has been defeated soundly in the election, we just need to do the same thing for the Democrats. Then, teh victory will be ours!

    *twirls imaginary mustache*

  29. *pats self on back with dick*

  30. I confess that I come here for the excellent quality of snark, not necessarily the articles.

  31. Given the reports of widespread support for Obama in Silicon Valley, they must have found their interest in libertarian principles since November 4.

    You can always count on R C Dean to play the commissar.

  32. This is the best!!???!?!?
    I’m like Charlie Brown – I buy the most pathetic Christmas trees, adopt the ugly and deformed puppy, and I read what I thought was the most pathetic blog…..things are much, much worse than I ever imagined.
    🙂

  33. *pets dick with your sisters cervix*

  34. From Libertarian Hotties:

    Creating this website has given me an excuse to network with some of the most beautiful, interesting, intelligent women I’ve ever met. If they are able to use their physical charms to draw attention and further disseminate a worthwhile message, then hey, bonus. 😉

    Women after my own heart. Take that, Feministing!

  35. Take that, Feministing!

    Did you just fist Feministing? Holy shit, dude. That’s hardcore.

    “Ladies, I’m a pacifist. I pass a fist. Get it?”

  36. I confess that I come here for the excellent quality of snark, not necessarily the articles.

    Oh, yeah. Snark drives traffic. Content, not so much.

    You can always count on R C Dean to play the commissar.

    Na Zdorovie!

  37. Women after my own heart.

    Olivia Munn is a libertarian? C’mon, that’s a just a random sampling of young hotties in their undies.

  38. DailyKos didn’t make the list?

  39. Now, can you get us a decent discussion forum. threaded comments maybe?

  40. The frequently p0wned Jesse Walker says This would be the post that says the force is “not a good idea” but takes issue with the claim that it was “exactly what Hitler did in Nazi Germany.”

    Good to know Weigel doesn’t think it should be top of BHO’s list, but somehow his condemnation was a little on the light side and didn’t include him showing any evidence of being able to think through all the implications. And, he ended with “Obama is proposing a new civilian force that he’d command as he commands every branch of the military.” OK!

    Say, has Jesse Walker ever walked back that smear of me?

  41. What is snark? How can I get some?

    Please tell me I can snort it.

  42. C’mon, that’s a just a random sampling of young hotties in their undies.

    Random hotties that have what many don’t have.

    “It has a philosophy. And that is what makes it dangerous.”

    Did you just fist Feministing? Holy shit, dude. That’s hardcore.

    Dude, they were practically begging for it. I bet they just love James Joyce, too.

  43. You can always count on R C Dean to play the commissar.

    Don’t turn around, uh-oh
    Der Kommissar’s in town, uh-oh

  44. Hurry, don’t be late
    I can hardly wait
    I said to myself when we’re old
    We’ll go dancing in the dark
    We’ll go walking through the park
    And feministing…

  45. H&R spurred me to subscribe to Reason, so this does not surprise me. Well done! (And for the record, I give 68.4% of the credit to Balko.)

  46. FrBunny: How ironic. H&R is what made me drop my subscription.

  47. Wow, I guess the saying about one-eyed man in the land of the blind is true. In the movement of totally irrelevent people, the occasionally though not usually relevant is king.

  48. Not ironic at all, Alanis. Too bad you hate it though. Why do you still hang around?

  49. I bet they just love James Joyce, too.

    Are you implying that they’re fat and fart a lot? That’s a horrible thing to say.

  50. Wait a Goddam second…no Dondero on this list?

    You don’t say.

  51. Random hotties that have what many don’t have.

    Oh, I’m down with that. I just want to know where this mad libertarian scientist’s lab is that is cranking these babes out. As a rule, they don’t occur in nature. (Yeah, yeah, I know, you *tell* us you’re hot….)

  52. c.o.–You seem to know a lot about certain things: idiocy, irrelevancy, chronic public masturbation, etc. It can’t all be a coincidence.

  53. I bet they just love James Joyce, too.

    I once tried to read James Joyce out loud in a sexy voice. I got surprisingly far

  54. @JW-Have fun being irrelevant. If you hadn’t noticed, your candidate didn’t get elected. He didn’t place second. Or third.

  55. I bet they just love James Joyce, too.

    Dead White Man? Ha. Tear down the canon! Let’s read Beloved eighty fucking times!

  56. Congratulations, much-adored Reason staff.

    And, by the way, I don’t come here for the snark… I come for the ignorant, malformed, and poorly punctuated pronouncements of our nano-dicked trolls. Every day they are like a breath of dumb air.

  57. @Sugfree-Right everyone who disagrees with you has a tiny dick. Right. That’s some interesting congitive dissocnace you’ve got ging there.

  58. Have fun being irrelevant. If you hadn’t noticed, your candidate didn’t get elected. He didn’t place second. Or third.

    I’m still surprised sometimes to see how politics for some people is exactly the same as having a favorite football team. Actual, y’know, ideals are irrelevant.

  59. CO,

    I have this irrelevant bum in my neighborhood that just needs reasoning with, you should try that.

  60. CO,

    At least you have the courage to admit it. Have fun jacking off with tweezers.

  61. congitive dissocnace…

    OK, who’s spoofing c.o? Fess up. You *know* his maximum syllabic limit is 2.

  62. We’ll go walking through the park
    And feministing…

    Bad…..song…..parody….stuck…in…head…

  63. “AT least you damit it. Have fu jacking off with tweezers”
    I was being sarcastic you fucking douchebag.

  64. Wow, deep field!

    But the blogs are grouped by theme, not ordered by overall rank. So technically you’re *tied* for number 1 with “Libertarian Party of Allen County” etc.

    Not that that’s not an accomplishment….

  65. Hey Boston, guess how many syllables the word “observer” has. Why don’t you respond to something I actually said, rather than making juvenile insults?

  66. JW,

    It’s probably him. Look at the completely incorrect way he used the term “cognitive dissonance.”

    Thinking that a half-literate ass-stain whose only purpose is to hurl crude insults correlates to possessing a tiny penis is, in no way, shape, form, or fashion, cognitive dissonance.

  67. @Sugarfree-“Ass stain”? Who’s the one hurling curde insults?

  68. I don’t really know why I bother you people have your haeds so far inserted into your anuses that it’s imposibe to extricate them.

  69. Crude: Characterized by simplicity, especially something not carefully or expertly made.

    This is the last vocabulary lesson, you cretinous jackanape.

  70. I don’t really know why I bother you people

    Me neither.

  71. Congrats to H&R on their achievement. I just recently started commenting here, stumbled across it a few months ago and it has since become a regular part of my day.

  72. Now, can you get us a decent discussion forum. threaded comments maybe?

    Can we second, third and fourth this please?!!?!? At least outsource it to some free message board site!!!

  73. Come on, CO, tell us more tall tales about your literacy. I bet no one noticed that you somehow managed to write “irrelevent” and “relevant” in THE SAME POST earlier.

  74. FrBunny,

    He must put on his righteous armor and slay the dread Reason dragon, home of the simultaneously incredibly dangerous and utterly irrelevant libertarianism.

    Which is, of course a fine example of, wait for it… cognitive dissonance.

  75. You are welcome.

  76. @Sugarfree-You libertarians are rightly ignored most of the time. However when some people are actually stupid enought to believe anything you say, it really fucks things up.

  77. Thank goodness you’re here to put a stop to all our nonsense with hyperbolic insults and an army of strawmen. That totally distracts from your minuscule penis. Which I see you haven’t even bothered to deny…

  78. Is it not a coincidence that CO has the same initials as “Correctional Officer”. Methinks he might have a corresponding intelligence quotient to that group. Of course, you can counter that the leader of a gypsy band couldn’t possibly be too smart either.

  79. And yes, everyone, I’ll stop feeding the troll.

  80. I don’t see why my penis size is an issue, but it’s perfectly normally sized. It’s not my fault that you people have a phallic obsession.

  81. Hey Boston, guess how many syllables the word “observer” has.

    Hey moran, Boston didn’t say that. Besides, we all know your mom wrote that for you.

    Crude: Characterized by simplicity, especially something not carefully or expertly made.

    I really think he meant curd. He clearly has issues with not only spelling, but also with Big Milk.

    Yeah, I’ll stop feeding it now too. After a while, smacking around 13-year olds it just gets boring.

  82. This is pretty cool. I’m honored to be the in same group as Hit and Run.

  83. No surprise here, only one beef. Where is your coverage of the auto industry bailout? You people every hear of British Leyland? It’s about to happen here, and every time I check H&R I expect to see the topic get the trademark Reason treatment. Granted, there’s a whole world of turd to cover, but the #1 libertarian blog should be all over this issue.

    Otherwise, keep kicking ass!

  84. While Reason’s blog is great that list isn’t. From the looks of it they did a google search for libertarian blogs and compiled the first 100 they found. Clearly the writer of the article doesn’t spend much time reading the blogs since some listed are rather pathetic while other good blogs are ignored.

  85. Say, has Jesse Walker ever walked back that smear of me?

    I appreciate the fact that this sentence appeared in the very same post in which OLS walked back his comment about Dave.

  86. No Unqualified Offerings? For shame.

  87. That website is just a bunch of knuckle-dragging link trollers trying to drum up backlinks to improve their pathetic Google PageRank.

    Not that I’m bitter.

  88. My dick is actually so big that I can suck it, and I do.

  89. How the hell did my blog come in at #9?!?!?!

  90. Now, can you get us a decent discussion forum. threaded comments maybe?

    I’ll take formatting buttons before threaded comments.

  91. Now, can you get us a decent discussion forum. threaded comments maybe?

    I’ll take formatting buttons before threaded comments.

    THE URKOBOLD WILL TAKE THE BLINK TAG OVER THREADED COMMENTS AND FORMATTING BUTTONS.

  92. I find threaded comments hard to keep track of. I’d rather refresh the page and have them all in order.

  93. lewrockwell’s blgo seems pretty good too…although no discussion…they at least don’t advocate carbon trading schemes or interventionist foreign policy. You can also be sure that none of them voted for Obama.

  94. Congratulations!

    (And thanks to the mighty Urkobold for the hottie link he provided above!)

  95. If you want background information about the failures of Free Trade and the so called Free Market, go to Tapart News and Art that Talks since 1994 with data back to 1956 related to so called Free Trade.

    We need to first define what the term Free Enterprise means and what Fair Trade means before letting loose so called Free Market idealogy that is not really Free.

    Far too many Free Market enthusiasts are like horses leaving the starting gate without the jockey.

    Most of the Free Market today is based on making money on money instead of making things. The only real value left in the USA as a money standard is labor and workers. And unfortunately, workers have no voice in the Free Market process during our times.

  96. H&R is what made me drop my subscription.

    Drink!

  97. Hey thanks for letting me know about all those other sites I can waste my time on! Maybe one of them will actually be libertarian!

    [drink]

  98. haha
    I’m lovin’ these comments. Especially, “I just want to know where this mad libertarian scientist’s lab is that is cranking these babes out.” I may have to quote you, JW.

    It’s kind of sweet that some of you guys doubt we’re for real.

    Urkobold- I’ve got your full frontal freedom right here, baby.

    Congratulations, Hit& Run!

  99. The drinking game alone is enough to keep me coming back to H&R.

  100. Merry Christmas H&R!
    Hark the herald Obama sings
    Glory to the newborn Obama…

  101. My Liberty Gear, promoting freedom with our designs. We are on kickstarter now at http://kck.st/110A1bC.There are no other rights if you cannot defend them! Freedom is a responsibility. We all have a duty to protect it! Thanks.
