I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

Ron Paul On The GOP Primaries: “This Is A Revolution”

Ron Paul was on CNN the other night talking about the outcome of the GOP primaries and the Tea Parties:

I wish I could be as optimistic as Paul about the ultimate impact of the Tea Parties. In the end, I think they’ll end up rallying behind the same socially conservative, neo-con, wishy-washy on fiscal conservatism Republicans we’ve seen since 1994. Hopefully, I’ll be proven wrong.

  1. No American who loves their liberty should ever hand over control of our government to the Republicans, ever again.

    After Bush, it is clear (or should be to anyone paying attention) that the Republican Party serves the multinational corporate interests, and NOT our citizens.

    It doesn’t matter how many Suzy Cheamcheese candidates that get marched out as Tea Party Republicans, the fact remains that, if our citizens fall for that gambit again, they will be handing control back to the scum who shipped our manufacturing jobs off to Communist China, tortured our citizens and engaged us in two un-declared wars.

    I would like to see more liberty-minded citizens working within our Democratic Party. In spite of having serious faults on several policy issues, the Democratic Party has been the only effective barrier to the most egregious extra-constitutional power grabs by the Republicans.

    The Democrats need to have many more libertarian voices within the Party to help buffer the more fringe elements that currently dominate Democratic Party meetings. People of faith, libertarians and others who share traditional American values, such as keeping government within the bounds of the Constitution, need to take an active role in the Democratic Party to help balance the efforts by the gays, feminists, trial lawyers and anti-gun lobbyists.

    More ground can be gained for libertarians through the Democratic Party than ever will be achieved with the corporate-owned Republicans.

    Unfortunately, you won’t be proven wrong. I’ve held similar sentiments since I made the mistake of going to last year’s Tea party. These people sure preach about the Constitution a lot, but nearly everything they do and say is contradictory to it.
