You and me both.

All Romney needs to do is put this in a commercial and Santorum as a candidate will be finished...

“One of the criticisms I make is to what I refer to as more of a Libertarianish right. They have this idea that people should be left alone, be able to do whatever they want to do, government should keep our taxes down and keep our regulations low, that we shouldn’t get involved in the bedroom, we shouldn’t get involved in cultural issues. That is not how traditional conservatives view the world. There is no such society that I am aware of, where we’ve had radical individualism and that it succeeds as a culture.”

Santorum and Gingrich are just professional politicians. Professional politicians all love Big Government.

Big Government made these guys who they are, and pays their bills.

EXACTLY

Reagan spawned the Perry/Santorum brand of Republicans...prior to Reagan those types would not get backed for election as dog catchers by the GOP,now they are the "norm" and posterboys for them.

That was yesterday. Today I believe him to be equal in his evilness. If he wins the nomination, I cannot pull the lever for him in good conscience. I guess I will have to vote for some third party candidate. He just lost the vote of the libertarians and many independents. How could he be so stupid? "I want to strongly fight Libertarian influence in the republican party.". Rick Santorum

How far we have fallen. "If you analyze it I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism.". --Ronald Reagan

Just do like most Ron Paul supporters are doing and write in his name (if it comes to that). Voting for the lesser of two evils as we have done for decades has only brought us to where we are today and destroyed everything this country was supposed to stand for.

Paul will definitely be at the convention. He has too many delegates not to be. The word is out that Romney will HAVE to ask Paul to be his V.P. or the Republicans will lose.

Clinton/Gingrich were able to cut defense spending because Reagan outspent the Soviets and won the Cold War. They cut back too much and allowed radical Islam to flourish which led to 911.
