Where were you when Ron Paul was being torn apart by other Republicans? How long would Barry Goldwater last today and look at who defeated him in the general election. I have stood on principle.

The campaigns of Ron Paul for President are excellent living examples of how the Republican party behaves.
Many ideas presented as "new" are just rehashes of old ideas that have been tried before -- and have failed before.
