Do You Support “Anyone But Obama”?

I graduated from "conservatism" tio libertarianism when I realized that libertarianism is what conservatism claimed to be: support and defense of life, liberty, limited gov't, the Constitution, the founding principles. Interventionism/world policing, war on drugs, foreign aid, TSA, NCLB, bailouts, etc. all represent infringements on these principles and as Beck has stated, represent progressivism from the right. So-called conservatives claim to despise the nanny state at home while supporting a nanny-to-the-world foreign policy. So-called conservatives claim to be pro-life while quickly and comfortably placing soldiers, officers, and civilians in harm's way for interventionism, war on drugs, etc. Support Ron Paul if you agree.
If you're a self-respecing person, vote for less liberty, more tyranny, higher unemployment, less prosperity, more envy and resentment among races, ethnicities, sexes, classes, etc. Only Marxists respect themselves.

As Palin and Demint have said, only Ron Paul has a serious plan to cut the size and scope and spending of gov't. Romney will merely give us less of what the Dems have to offer and like Obama, is an interventionist. It's hard to get excited/passionate/energetic about a mushy moderate.

Romneycare, support for bailouts, support for action v. global warming, no serious plan to downsize gov't or cut taxes, much less eliminate any departments or taxes. Romney=Progressive lite.

If folks who agree with Dr. Williams don't shout support for Ron Paul from the rooftops, all will be sound and fury, signifying little.

We have a candidate who has supported and defended liberty, limited gov't, the Constitution, and founding principles like a Pit Bull for 30 years in Ron Paul. He is dismissed by so-called "conservatives" because he opposes unConstitutional, damaging, and originally-progressive interventionism/world policing. For folks like Rush, Hannity, Prager, Medved, Hewitt, etc., a nanny state at home is unacceptable, but a nanny-to-the-world foreign policy is so important that we are willing to allow liberty and prosperity at home to be jeopardized. Anyone who claims to support liberty, limted gov't, the Constitution, and founding principles, but dismisses Ron Paul will have to accept responsibility for failing to choose the solution to the problem.
Frank's comment about doing "nothing at all," is indicative of Dem "thinking": If gov't doesn't do it, it won't get done. I guess there were no hospitals, doctors, nurses, etc. until gov't "did" something. If something is wanted, and gov't stays out of the way, private initiative will get it done better, without gov't theft of the fruits of peoples' labor. Support libertarianism if you agree.

No income tax, please -- or Estate or Capital Gains taxes. If the fed were limited to the powers/activities granted by the Constitution, we could get by with a non-protectionist and low tariff on imports. Support Ron Paul!!!

Right on! Romney has no serious plan to reduce the size and scope of gov't, spending, etc. and offers merely a bit less of what the Dems perpetrate. Only Dr. Paul promises to restore the nation to the greatness of the founding. If only so-called "conservatives" could shed their affinity for unConstitutional and damaging interventionism/world policing, war on drugs, Patriot Act, bailouts, etc., we ight have a chance.
