@ Steven, "Jack did sell out, first to Gary Johnson, and now to Rand Paul". I dont see how this is selling out. Has he stopped supporting the principles that Paul advocates? Of course not. He is now supporting other candidates that's all. Do they all agree with Ron Paul on everything? No, but politics is not about purity and perfection otherwise we would never advance the goal of liberty. Unless you can clone Ron Paul no one is going to advocate everything he supported all the time. Rand Paul is one of the good guys and I frankly reject this attitude that says "Oh well if you dont support not Ron Paul then you hate liberty" This is not how politics works. If the best man is no longer in politics like Ron Paul then you work within the system, like Ron Paul did, to get the next possible best thing. Thats how the real world works. I proudly supported and voted for Ron Paul in the primaries both times but he didnt win. Ok so I go on to the next best candidate. Will there be another Ron Paul? Probably not but that there are other good candidates out there.
I would remind you Scott that no less a libertarian than Mr Libertarian himself Rothbard publicly supported George H.W.Bush and Pat "Protectionist Tariff"Buchanan. He understood the the real world. I agree more and more each day that its insane unfounded conspiracy theories like the Jews are behind this and that and everything else and Obama is a Muslim Kenyan that killed Ron Paul's chances.
Amen to Jack! As a proud Ron Paul supporter it ticks me off that these crackpot conspiracy advocates think that if you dont belive in their fairy tales you must be a sell out. You see I believe that the vast majority of people who dont like Ron Paul really dont like those of his supporters who peddle in the conspiracies like the Bildeberg group, 9/11 wet fantasies, and the Jewish this and the Jewish that cospiracy to rule the world. People like this never really wanted Ron Paul to win, just use him to hold on to his coat tail to spew forth their conspiracies.
