You, along with 100% of the other Ron Paul haters, have failed to let us know who your candidate is in your long-winded-yet-full-of-the-same-nothing post. Or was this yet another "Ron Paul is unelectable" thread designed to wast electrons?

So your arguing that you can't vote for a guy who initially ran for the party you support, because hes no longer affiliated with your preferred party?
Yes I know I know there's no such thing as voting.edit on 2-1-2012 by RSF77 because: (no reason given)
Hold on just a cotton-pickin' minute there, Smokey!... Did you read the post or check his signature? It's pretty clear whom he supports.

If you believe Paul currently has a better than snowball's chance than you will be in for a long couple of months. Romney has New Hampshire sewn up, Paul is third is SouthCarolina behind Romney and Newt and is doing about 5% in Florida.
Ron Paul is a short term hail Mary pass to something that requires a long term solution.
Unfortunately, in the United States the term “libertarian” has become, since the 1970s, associated with the right-wing, i.e., supporters of “free-market” capitalism. That defenders of the hierarchy associated with private property seek to associate the term “libertarian” for their authoritarian system is both unfortunate and somewhat unbelievable to any genuine libertarian. Equally unfortunately, thanks to the power of money and the relative small size of the anarchist movement in America, this appropriation of the term has become, to a large extent, the default meaning there. Somewhat ironically, this results in some right-wing “libertarians” complaining that we genuine libertarians have “stolen” their name in order to associate our socialist ideas with it!
