Ron Paul is far from perfect. He used the Republican Party. But all that nonsense is unimportant. What is important to me is our country. Unequivocally, I would have voted for Ron Paul to defeat Obama if that was how the cards played out. I'm concerned about the real picture...the future of our country. Not politics. Not the Republican Party. Not Third Party. Not bruised egos. Although, I do think Romney was the right person for the right time in history. Yes, I liked Romney.
This article comes to mind: www.breitbart.com
"Priorities, people. Nothing less than the Constitution is at stake here... Don't be the guy in 20 years who looks over his shoulder to make sure no policemen are listening and then says to his kids, "Back in 2012, I was mad because Ron Paul lost and then got disrespected. I loved the Constitution, but I was mad, and so I let the guy who hated the Constitution win. I'm sorry. I am so, so sorry."
I didn't let
anyone win, I voted and always will. A lot of Paul supporters probably didn't because they were deemed undesirable by the Republican party hierarchy. I am realistic enough to know that he didn't stand a chance with the GOP establishment. Romney was unable to shake off the label of a pompous, detached rich guy who couldn't relate to the common man. He simply lacked the oratory skills to do that. He also made a complete fool of himself in London and especially in Tel Aviv. He was a bad choice, but was probably the most electable out of the bunch we had to choose from. In 2016 we must field a candidate that a majority of the electorate
will vote for, and a goose-stepping, my way or the highway tea party candidate ain't gonna cut it. Ugly as it is to some today, compromise was not a dirty word to the founding fathers. Indeed, it was part of their design.
