Fact is Ron Paul is as popular with the Democrats as he is with Republicans. That may be less obvious during primary season than it would going into
November because many if not most states only allow one to participate in the party's primary elections that they are registered with.
Paul is a right-leaning libertarian philosophically, the liberty aspect being his appeal and the left/right paradigm being so ambiguous nowadays that
is a shading that can be easily dismissed by those who primarily are concerned for our loss of freedoms and privacies. In that regard Ron Paul is
unique among major-party politicians, the others most all of whom kowtow and are cheerfully compliant to an increasingly authoritarian system.
Americans eagerly surrender their freedoms to their fear and loathing of straw-men bad-guys targeted to be their enemies. The media bombards us with
images of humanity at its lowest depths so that Americans wince at the thought of others being allowed to live without a strictly enforced set of
guidelines to govern their conduct. Essentially, Americans hate each other for their freedoms. Our governing leaders loathe and fear us having
freedoms. Personal privacy is unbearable to them. Compliance is the only praiseworthy attribute any more. Individualism is intolerable. Paul is the
lone defender and advocate of personal sovereignty in the major leagues of government and poltics.
The American public overwhelmingly demands an entity to watch over us, or the media is not portraying this correctly. Most are happy to be treated as
children, they are made to feel grown-up when the can dress up as commandos and terrorize foreign populations seeking out those straw-man enemies.
Paul's appeal goes beyond party lines. He appeals to those who are above the glitz and glamour of the grown-up masquerade, to those emancipated souls.
There are many of us of all walks and stripes.
