Ron Paul SEEMS like someone who would do that -- but he wouldn't be on that stage if he really were. The battles between Democrats and Republicans,
and the phony opposition of Libertarians and Tea Party (who want MORE rights for corporations), are squabbles over who gets to move their clan into
the house of the Cosa Nostra, and get the graft to sell out the American people.
Not to interject an explanation, but...
Ron Paul ran for President in...mmm...88... I believe as a libertarian. I remember that well, I liked his stance on foriegn policy and the UN then,
and yes, his desire to end the war on drugs WAAAAAAAY back then. Unfortunately, in this defunct, corrupt system - you have to be tagged as an elephant
or an ass - or you dont get to be heard in the debates, nevermind hold the big office.
Ron is trying to get the Republican nomination, only because "independent" didn't work so well last two times. This time, however, I believe that
even if he does not get the elephant nomination, he is still able to continue as an independent without restriction due to his retirement from
Congress. AND, I think he has the momentum built up to pull it off.
Its a really clever strategy, in all actuality.
But thats just my .02 cents.
