If you had backed Ron Paul, the ONLY true conservative, you would never have to wonder where he really stands. Paul ultimately refused to endorse the Romney–Ryan ticket selected by the Republican Party. He said that there was no essential difference between Romney and his Democratic opponent, Obama, on the most critical policies: "I’ve been in this business a long time and believe me there is essentially no difference from one administration to another no matter what the platforms.... The foreign policy stays the same, the monetary policy stays the same, there’s no proposal for any real cuts and both parties support it." So would have Gingrich. He was beyond reproach in his marriage; Paul has been married to Carol Wells since 1957.

I also agree that Paul is the only candidate who even remembers the Constitution let alone lives it but he never had a chance. Paul should have concentrated on a governorship and not the Presidency or Congress. He could have then pointed to his state and said, “See, liberty works.” Instead he was a lone dissenting voice in Congress. In the end what did he achieve; he “raised awareness” on the Fed and other issues, got some young pot heads interested in politics and set his son up for success, laudable but not earth shaking.

I agree with V.7. Ron Paul was the only candidate who advocated limited, constitutional government. The other Republican candidates (with the possible exception of Gary Johnson, who was booted early) merely offered the voters Obama-Lite.

This time I should’ve been the one listening.

But listening can be tough sometimes when you’re an analyst and a commentator, and people around the country – listeners, readers, media, candidates, causes, businesses, etc. – come to you to find out why things are happening and what may happen next. Analysis and commentary is one of the few things in life I’m really good at. My car expertise begins and ends with changing a tire. Any toy that comes with the phrase “some assembly required” my kids immediately take to my wife. And when that much-anticipated Zombie apocalypse finally happens...
