Ron Paul's worst than Rand Paul, what's your point? At least freepers admitted Ron was a libertarian and not a "true conservative".

If you analyze it I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism. I think conservatism is really a misnomer just as liberalism is a misnomer for the liberals–if we were back in the days of the Revolution, so-called conservatives today would be the Liberals and the liberals would be the Tories. The basis of conservatism is a desire for less government interference or less centralized authority or more individual freedom and this is a pretty general description also of what libertarianism is.
-- Ronald Reagan in Reason magazine (1975).

Are you kidding me? 99% of the republican party are not and do not know what conservatism is. I would go as far to say that most Freepers dont even know what conservatism is. As a libertarian, Ron Paul is more conservative than any Republican currently in government.

Too bad freepers have no clue what a “true conservative” is either.
