Reagan vs. Obama? Nice idea. But who's going to nominate Reagan? The Republicans? they couldn't even bring themselves to nominate someone as conservative as Bachman or Santorum. And as for a true constitution-thumping American like Paul - fuhgeddaboutit.
"I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism. I think conservatism is really a misnomer, just as liberalism is a misnomer for the liberals . . . The basis of conservatism is a desire for less government interference or less centralized authority or more individual freedom, and this is a pretty general description also of what libertarianism is."
