    Thanks Neocons for re-electing Obama when you pushed yet another Progressive to the front of the pack during the Republican Primaries. You then wasted your vote in the GE and re-elected Obama.

    The Republican party fought at great lengths to shrink itself by disenfranchising Ron Paul supporters and Libertarians, women and all minorities, people that believe in evolution and want a balanced budget.

    You Neocons lost against a President with near 8% UE who is in so many wars most people don’t bother to count.

    This year it seems about 120,000,000 million people voted, in 2008 it was 131,000,000 million. This means You lost against a President who is falling in popularity at a tremendous rate, like UE under Obama, his supporters couldn’t even keep up with population growth.

    So where does the Republican party go from here? Do you keep electing Progressives whose past policies are big Government all the way around the block, people that want nuclear war with anyone that gets pissed when we bomb their country for 10+ years or arm their enemies? Do you keep supporting people that want to enter a cold war with Cuba… people that talk about God, their faith and then how important it is to enter wars and kill tens of thousands of civilians?

    Now I’m not saying there is a difference between Republican and Democrats policies when it comes to wars, a balanced budget and upholding the constitution, there isn’t. But your party and the Democratic party are shrinking, so what are you going to do? I mean how much further left can you go than footing a candidate that supported near every single policy Obama had at some point?

    I left the Republican party, millions have and millions more will be… Is this where you tell me and other to get fucked, then sit back and watch your party bleed to death, or do you think it’s time to elect people that have a record to run off over God, War, hating gays, hating abortion and how much they hate Dimacrats! Because currently the Republican platform by actual policy is that of massive Government (Medicare part D, Romneycare and so on) and positions on issues that have no role in the Federal Government, like gay marriage and how awesome God is.

    It's true, Ron Paul was the only chance Republicans had of taking the WH, but neo-con principles just wouldn't let it happen.

    While I appreciate the spirit of your post, I'd hardly say the Neo-cons 'lost' this election. They won over a year ago.

    Hmmm ... can't quite go that far. I think the mainstream media would have had an unmitigated feeding frenzy on Paul. The Republicans would have lost even more dramatically with him at the helm.

    As others have pointed out there - we won't get libertarian government until we have libetarian voters. And for now we mostly don't. It's gratifying to see more and more people seeing the light, but we're a long way from critical mass.

    Since nearly half of the electorate doesn't even show up, you can't say that with any certainty.

    It only took an additional 15% turnout in Minnesota to get Jesse Ventura elected....That's not to say that he's a big libertarian, just that you don't need that big of an added number of the sideliners to win the day if your messaging is right.

    As I see it, had Paul been the nominee he would have easily received all the votes Romney secured last night, if anything to vote against, and to try to remove Obama from power.

    Then you take into account the independents, along with the non-democrat liberals and youngsters that find Paul's anti-war and anti drug laws appealing, and you have someone that's getting more votes than Romney.

    He's certainly more likable than the guy they had up there.

    If Ron Paul had won the nomination, I'm afraid that it would mark the first time I did not vote in a presidential election. The choice would have been between a man that hates America and a lunatic.

    Ron Paul lost almost every race he ever ran. He polls poorly among traditional conservatives, to say nothing of liberals, who think he's crazy.
    The idea that Paul would have won the general election is so absurd it wouldn't even fly as an article in The Onion.

    You're a lunatic.

    That's why your party is dying.
