- He ran as a republican because the 2 party system controls the path to the White House. It is specifically designed to keep out 3rd parties. Reagan once said "the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism." - Libertarianism is the fastest growing political identification (due to the backlash from Obama, and the success of Ron Paul) - You say he barely made a blip. I point out the he came in second to Romney. Thats right, even with the media black out (which there was one for a while) of Ron Paul, he did metter than Newt, Santorum, Bachman, Cain. What does that tell you?
