Ron Paul Republican

Republican? You do realise he got booed at one of the Republican GOP right? That was when he said to not go to war with Iran.

That doesn't mean he doesn't run as a Republican, though, and to be nominated (for most states), supporters need to register as Republican. Thus, registered Republican, Ron Paul supporter -- Ron Paul Republican. It generally was (is?) held by Ron Paul supporters that the Republican party is the most likely vessel to allow a Paul-like candidate to ascend to presidency (among other potential political victories). There are "Ron Paul Democrats," too, though. The failed candidacy of Bob Conley comes to mind. I'm not sure what "Ron Paul Republican" would imply over "Ron Paul supporter," though... Maybe the person gives enough of a damn to vote, or is more "Rand Paul" in thinking, or is just affirming they believe using the Republican party is most likely to result in tangible change...? Maybe they're just worried they might be associated with the Libertarian party.  Cheesy

I believe there's one person I've met (on here, of course) who claims to have turned away from libertarianism before reaching free market anarchist (recoiled from personal responsibility, I think), but once you go AnCap, you don't go back. Wink

I'm not opposed to the idea of it... but nobody's been able to sell it to me yet. But I'm not really that far off of it.


You do realize that this will sound like a challenge to me, right? Wink

Well, Challenge accepted. What are your main complaints?

Maybe the person gives enough of a damn to vote...
This. The last time I voted was for Ron Paul, and I had to register Republican in order to do so.

Once you see the irrationality, the violence and the hostility in statists, it is impossible to unsee it.  This is exactly why one does not return from an cap.

I imagine abolitionists also could not stop seeing the Negro as a human being, once they did.

Ditto for anyone who was a Christian/Muslim who turns atheist. You just can't *force* yourself to believe in Santa Claus
