    The DNC needs to stop acting like GOP and start caring more about issues then about control of power. Its time to let Obama go, and start supporting Ron Paul for 2012. Its time to make a choice between being another 'all about winning' party, or a party that cares more about principals and ideals winning?

    Ron Paul has many clear parallels with Democrats. His global policy much more closely resembles the ideals of Democrats then Republicans (atleast for my lifetime). He is the only candidate for 2012 that is aggresivly trying to end the militarism. He is the only candidate that has offered real budget cuts, without cutting social programs. In fact his programs make cuts to business contracts and BBB (big business benefiting) regulations. Those are traditional Democrat issues (atleast for my lifetime). He wants to legalize pot, and end the war on drugs. He wants to address the issue of our prison economy. All Democrat issues. Most importantly he wants to eradicate the crony capitalism from government.

    While some of his issues many people have reasons not to agree with, his highest priority's are issues that cross all party lines. He is the only one that can be trusted to perform as expected once elected. While supporting his campaign for the oval office would be yielding power to the GOP is not the underlying cause worth it?

    His promise to never legislate via executive order should be assurance enough that the only changes in policy made would be changes supported by congress. Its a self neuter of his powers demanding cooperation of the congress. He will essentially be the commander in chief of the military, hold the power of the veto for unconstitutional bills, and a figurehead for public support.

    DNC should go on the offensive against the establishment and the status quo with Ron Paul, they should understand that what every American really wants for Christmas is a government that functions as intended. One that serves its citizens first, corporate power second and itself last.

    If Democrats supported Ron Paul and accomplished 1/5 of what he is trying to do would that not be the best win for Democrat ideology in the last 12 years?

    Political Parties are incapable of thinking of anything else except Power. That's why George Washington said what he did about them.

    What is supposed to be a protection of our Constitutional Rights has turned in to a "National League vs. American League" sorta thing.

    Ron Paul would not support democrats, Ron Paul will not support anyone that does not tow the line on his interpretations of government. It is the main problem with Ron Paul, he is entirely a "my way or the highway" sort of politician, if president he would be nothing but a veto machine.

    Speaking to MSNBC host Cenk Uygur, Texas Republican Congressman Ron Paul said if he were elected President of the United States he would try to transition the country off of Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. Watch below:

    Ron Paul is pretty much the antithesis of the leftists that run the DNC these days.
