He is NOT a conservative....and he should NOT be called one.
“Libertarian my brother...Ron Paul is a libertarian...
He is NOT a conservative....and he should NOT be called one. “
Neither is Romney.
The thing we need to do is look at their history, not their promises.
If libertarians agree with conservatives 20 - 30%, and Romney agrees with conservatives 10%, who should we vote for?
Should we give in to the establishment and throw in the towel now, or keep fighting, even if it is only a token to show our displeasure with Romney?
Seems to me he’s more of a conservative than most of the GOP. I mean, he actually wants to cut the size of government. Where is the support for that among our “mainstream” GOP politicians (and voters)?
That said, his foreign policy is a bit odd. I think about halfway between his position and the general GOP position is about right. But, it is Congress which has the power to declare war, anyhow.
Paul is still way more conservative than Romney
