There is a Romney in the race again...just like 1964. Deja vu all over again!
The Ron Paul Doctrine: ‘When the going gets tough, the tough ... go home.’
Ron Paul is a wild shrimp by comparison.
I used to find Ron Paul tolerable until his nutty fan base started diaherreaing all over the Internet... now because of them I can’t help but associate him with craziness.
Ron Paul hasn’t a chance with anyone who cares about our national security.
Ron Paul wants to be the new Goldwater?? But Goldwater didn’t go crazy until he was near death.
youand a lot of other Americansshould follow your dream.....
With the exception of the PDS squad................
Dr. Paul is the only republican in the current field that I can consider supporting.
Hmmmm.....defeatism from a GOP Presidential candidate. Now wonder most people are saying Ron who?
Maybe by 2012, the GOP will figure out that voters don't like being the world's supercop plus financing the rest of the world with trade imbalances.
So...we should nominate Paul so we can lose and be reminded of what “real” conservatism is?
Right. I guess anyone who supports such a delusional theory likes the idea of President Hillary and Co-President Bill.
Of course the entire theory doesn’t make sense. Goldwater had popular support and was saying things that conservatives agreed with and supported. Paul has the support of 1% of Republicans and holds foreign policy views that Republicans and conservatives vehemently disagree with.
2008 isn’t 1964. 2008 is 2008.
Well, that fits the whole "pro-surrender" meme to a "T".
Yeah, let’s bring back the Great Society under Hillary. That would be just terrific. Unlike the Ron Paul junkies, I have no nostalgia for the 1960’s.
The question is, is it possible to turn back from the cliff?
Goldwater was the father of the Reagan Revolution, but its impetus was the LBJ legacy - escalation in Vietnam and the disastrous programs of the Great Society. Goldwater's loss was a moral victory for conservatism, but it also led to many of the societal problems that bedevil us today.
Choose Ron Paul for a moral victory, and help the Left continue their march towards cultural domination unfettered by a united Right. I'd rather win for real.
“the GOP has no chance of winning the presidency next year,”
The Dems haven’t elected a president with over 50% of the vote since 1976 and I’m asked to entertain this preposterous idea? Nobody can predict the amount of voters who will come out of the woodwork just to vote against Hillary in ‘08.
IIRC, Goldwater was very strong on national security issues. Perhaps a little TOO strong, more than the people in 1964 could handle, which is why he didn’t win.
Ron Paul is no Barry Goldwater.
Someon is flying over the Cuckoo nest.
So, Paul admits he is in the campaign to try to lose and bring our side down? The problem is that Paul isn't running a Goldwater-style insurgency, he is running a McGovern-style insurgency...
If this is going to be the GOP strategy this time, I would rather do it with a Rice-Coulter ticket. Let's see the Dhimmies try to use the "+" is stupid!" campaign now.
