I watched Ron Paul’s rally on Sunday. I heard about the Paul delegates to the Republican convention not being allowed a seat by the GOP leadership. I saw the video where the Paul delegates were pushed aside by the GOP establishment in Louisiana. I listened to Ron Paul being booed in the primary debates. I heard his statement being twisted into something he never said.
Now, I am watching as the Republican Convention speakers talk about smaller government while their platform statements reach into the bedrooms of America to legislate what is and isn’t acceptable in our private lives. I’m watching as billionaires purchase the Republican Party, lock stock and barrel. To keep the votes of the Ron Paul wing the leadership pays lip service to Paul’s libertarian principle while making promises and following priorities that absolutely contradict those principles.
I’m not really a libertarian, even though I was at one time in my life. But with the preceding information in mind I have to ask; Why are you still in the Republican Party?
