Could someone seriously explain to me why Paul is a Republican? Has he read the Republican party platform? I'm not saying he should be a Democrat but he certainly doesn't agree the tenets of the current Republican party as it is defined today.

Please clarify. How is it defined today? How is Ron Paul not in keeping with traditional Republican ideas? I look forward to your thoughts, because many thousands of us in this country would believe Ron Paul is more Republican in values than any other GOP candidate this campaign season.

He is trying to restore the Republican Party to it's original intentions. In order to do this, he has to be in the party--not on the outside. If he were to change to a different party, he would no longer hold his position in congress, and wouldn't be privey to what goes on inside the party, or have any say-so. He was a Libertarian candidate at one time. He has many viewpoints similar to Liberarians, but not totally. He is definitely a strict Constitutionalist, and points out how both the Republicans and Democrats have strayed from this heritage. A very smart man.

key words: as it is defined today.
The Republican party used to stand for SMALL GOVERNMENT. Sadly, that is no longer the case. The Republican party has been taken over by the religious right and the borrow and spend corporate lobby.

Agreed. What's the cause of that? Why have republicans allowed that to happen? Or, if that's not answerable, why do they support and vote for the usurpers? What has happened in the smoke-filled rooms to explain it?

Haha, I figured that, but I thought nobody in their right mind would would be proud to label the GOP what it is today... sad and shameful.

If the market is cyclical and this is 'normal', then why is the Fed Reserve and the Gov't bailing out Fannie May, Freddie Mac, and AIG?
