Sorry republicans and democrats - I can only vote for candidates that will adhere to the Constitution. If you want me to vote for your candidate, select one that does not support laws and regulation being written by anyone other than Congress. Select one that says, I cannot give the people this big government solution because it is not one of the enumerated powers I possess.

Right....proving my all or nothing argument. I just want it to be clear to the reader.

I'm trying to be clear.

Do you have any questions?

Gee, where have I heard that before? Oh, right! "The Constitution is not a suicide pact! The Constitution is a living, breathing document!"

That is what amounts to. Again, you've proven to be a Progressive in "conservative" drag, king. You can't fool everyone all the time,

I recognize that having principles make me open to hatred by progressives. So be it. I can't wait to welcome with open arms any of them that wake up and join me in pursuit of freedom and the Nation our Founding Fathers made for us.

Right, more name calling.....got it....

Hate to quote Thomas Jefferson on you but:
""[a] strict observance of the written law is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to the written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the ends to the means."

So it seems you like some of the founders ideas but not all.....ok. Now it's clear.

This is what happens when people start losing their capacity to comprehend te written language.

Thomas Jefferson was talking about CITIZENS, king, not the govenment. Strict adherence to the Constitution is the obligation of those that took an OATH to respect it and OBEY it. That is what we're talking about, not what citizens should be doing.

Oh, another result of the "Amerikan Pulbic Skool Seistem".

Couldn't agree more....I'd definitely try to spin that if I were you....commitment-consistency psychology demands it in your case.

That's rich. You first gave a quote from Jefferson talking about the moral imperative of placing liberty over the strict adherence to the law, which had nothing to do with the Constitition, and then you accuse ME of spinning your own spin.

You're shifty and dishonest. And yet you do not want to believe I can see you for what you are: a Progressive.

If you nominate a person like that, we will be on the same side again. If you don't, stop whining about me not voting for your guy. You made the choice too, and you made it not on your principles. No. You made it against your principles. That is something I cannot accept any more. I did it for many elections though. I was like you. I had enough after McCain. I said, "NO MORE".

Once you do that too, you will find progressive republican candidates unpallatable.

Of course I meant "not" adhere to the Constitution. Don't want to confuse king10 even more.

lol, more hate and derision and ridicule....the hallmark of pure libertarians on TH.

Presidential candidate and long time Representative Ron Paul said goodbye yesterday on the House floor as he prepares to make his exit from Congress after 23 years. He explained his consistent views throughout the past two decades and berated Washington for refusing to change or make hard decisions when it comes to the future. 

As the father of what many characterize as the buoyant, bi-partisan New Liberty Movement, Paul shared “the plain truth” about Washington, America’s current national crisis and the greatest threats to the future.

Paul began by explaining his goals in 1976:...
