    Their views on 90% of mainstream issues are diametrically opposite.

    There is no difference between the parties. Its all pandering and calling yourself whatever you think will get you the most votes. Ron Paul is the clear conservative, so either the GOP is not a conservative party or Sameasthem is in the wrong party.

    Just ask Mitt Romney, he knows all about it.

    Ron Paul has always been a libertarian. When it became clear that he would never be elected president running on a third party ticket he decided he'd have better luck as a republican.

    One is black with an arab sounding name and one is a religious Texan, those are the only reasons I can think of.


    Nothing politically.

    He's always been a Republican with the exception of 1988. When he ran strictly as a Libertarian.

    I think it's great that the GOP can run the gamut from Libertarians to Social Conservatives and agree to disagree.

    :D

    It appears R's are not supposed to be diverse.

    Only Democrats can be diverse. It's the "Democrat law of the universe". I loved it when Harry Reid was having a meltdown over any Hispanic being a Republican.

    Actually I love it any time Harry has a meltdown.:badgrin:
