His dad, Ron Paul, did. He was a Republican congressman, you know.
If the Republican Party's membership is shrinking, it is probably less due to changing demographics and more to changing ideologies, and I'm not talking about people becoming more left-wing. People are becoming more oriented toward a limited-government stance, and are abandoning the GOP because it is (rightly) seen as being far too liberal!
He said that he already voted for G. Johnson. Not the best choice, perhaps, but better than Romney. Surfcitybob: you did the right thing by voting your conscience. Your vote was not the same as "a vote for Obama". Those who vote for Romney are actually voting for eight more years of Obama-style policies, since Romney and Obama are both Progressives trying to implement very similar policies.
Yesterday, our neighbor came over for a visit, and said she had just been to a Tea Party meeting, where the members were saying that if you vote for Romney--yes, Romney--then you were going to hell. I don't know the reasoning behind such an assertion. On another note, I say that the Tea Party had good reason not to endorse Romney, but it was for none of the reasons they listed. Rather, Romney supports the NDAA of 2012, which authorizes the president to have the military arrest and imprison American citizens without a trial. This an unacceptable position for a supposed conservative candidate. The position is practically the same as if Romney said he supports the authority of the FedGov to seize all firearms without a warrant.

Why This Obsession With Iran?

Buchanan raises a valid question: If Iran is dangerous because it is a nation run by radical muslims that is seeking nuclear weapons technology, why does Pakistan not seem to be on the radar screen? It is a nation with radical muslims that already has nuclear weapons. And there's your answer, right there. The U.S. Gov't will not attack any but poor third-world nations. Because the "War on Terror" is not an endeavor to keep us safe, but rather to keep us distracted as the government seizes vast amounts of power over our lives.
Being galvanized to vote for Romney is hardly an improvement. Romney *says* he will work to repeal it, but we'll have to wait and see what the polls say when the time for repeal comes, if it ever does. It seems to me that the GOP would rather have this issue for campaign donation purposes for a long time to come; they have no real incentive to repeal it.
Wow. It looks like Chief Justice Roberts has "grown."
It's all to fight the crazy religious fanatics of Islam, don't you know. Once terror surrenders, we can go back to living normal lives. The government will tell us when the War on Terror is over, so everything's jake. If you think this is creepy, then you probably want the Muslims to take over.
