    Ron Paul offers a lot of individual freedom and this scares Republicans. After all, the outcome of liberty is unknown and most Republicans are scared of the unknown. They need control and they need to manipulate the outcome.

    Hence, whey they want to impose their social conservative beliefs onto society. They are afraid of liberty and seek control. Hence, why they lied and manipulate wars instead of practicing diplomacy. Diplomacy brings into the unknown and this does not resonate well with Republicans. They need control, hence why they lied and manipulated into war.

    American Conservatism is most closely related to classical liberalism in which there is an element of the unknown. However, an element of the unknown goes against the grain of the Republican and scares them. Instead, they seek to power to control and manipulate, instead of allowing man to be free.

    Liberty scares Republicans, hence why they constantly throw their support behind statists freaks like Romney, Santorum, Bush, and even Reagan. Not to mention Nixon and Ike. Liberty scares Republicans and always has. They have always been mostly authoritative statists freaks, backed by soft appeals to liberty.


    p.s. liberals are not better. They clamor for individual freedom, yet look for the state to grant them it, often times violating someone's elses freedom. So, please keep your strawman arguments to yourself.

    For Romney's sake, and mine !! I hope and prey he puts Paul somewhere in his administration before the election. As we all know, Paul supporters vote in the masses and Romney needs a chunk of that youth vote to beat Bozo!

    Poor Jillian who just trolls and negs me without offering anything of substance.

    You are garbage and completely incapable of having a discussion on the issues. Go dump yourself into a polluted harbor.

    Republicans have always been afraid of limited statism, pro-liberty philisophy. You shot down Goldwater in 64 and shoot down Ron Paul in 2012, and for who? For Mitt or Rick?

    Republicans are statist hacks who hate limited government and individual liberty.
