Cant say I always agree with him, but always a pleasure to hear Wilkerson talk:

Lawrence Wilkerson: A shameful pandering to the far right is an embarrassment; Ron Paul's foreign policy cannot coexist in the GOP, he will likely create a third party; Wall St. elite happy with Obama

A limited government with strong military is just as utopian as a government that can fairly distribute wealth. Ron Paul is the only one up there with a rational and coherent platform. However, I am not really convinced it is best to pull the bandaid off so quickly. What would be the best policies in an ideal world may not be best in a post-corporatist world. Honestly, if not Ron Paul, we might as well stick with Obama.

Murray Rothbard on why voter turnout was so high in the 1890s:
Quote
    Thus, the Republican leaders would go to their rank and file and say: "Just as we need Big Paternalistic Government on the local and state level to stamp out sin and compel morality, so we need Big Government on the national level to increase everyone's purchasing power through inflation, keeping out cheap foreign goods (tariffs), or keeping out cheap foreign labor (immigration restrictions)."

    And for their part, the Democratic leaders would go to their constituents and say: "Just as the Republican fanatics are trying to take away your liquor, your beer parlors, and your parochial schools, so the same people are trying to keep out cheap foreign goods (tariffs), and trying to destroy the value of your savings through inflation. Paternalistic government on the federal level is just as evil as it is at home."

If you have only a "strong military" it will grow to fill void left by everything else you cut until it is performing the job of the FBI, Medicare, etc.

Romney is the king of this. He is like the republican Obama:

Quote
After fostering a highly-educated workforce and lowering taxes, he asserts that the "best thing the country can do is unleash the power of entrepreneurs and get out of the way."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Political_positions_of_Mitt_Romney

Positions like this are not coherent. He says he wants the feds  to be involved in education and lower taxes. Followed by something vague and hopeful.

Quote
"I support the right of individuals to keep and bear arms as guaranteed under the U.S. Constitution,"

"So I'm a hunter and believe in Second Amendment rights, but I also believe that assault weapons are not needed in the public population."

It is like he and his adviser's think we are all idiots.
