"5 of those 6 candidates are repugnant to Freedom, they don't believe in the constitution, they don't believe our rights come from our humanity, they
just believe in a republican version of big government"
Wow..I might reconsider my take on the "Judge".
That is some fearless truth.
Here is some more difficult truth...the GOP is split three ways..
(1) those that favor a "Republican Version of Big Government" and will ONLY vote Romney
(2) those that don't favor big gov, but will vote for Romney out of pragmatism (electability), but will also vote Paul if he gains ground.
(3) those that are committed to the principles of the constitution and limited Government and will ONLY vote Paul
And the big problem for the GOP is that whoever the nominee is, they will need all three of those groups to compete against President Obama.
Paul supporters don't strike me as the "hold you nose and vote" crowd...and the "Republican version of Big Gov" crowd, aka establishment (Bush remix)
will not be motivated to go to the polls for Ron Paul...he is not in anyones pockets...won't get the Big GOP Businesses, Military industrial complex,
wall street bailout recipients etc behind him.
I see two of those factions uniting, but not three and three are required.
