Thanks! That's an interesting analysis, one I hadn't heard before. And I think you're right--Ron Paul is a heretic in the church of Republicanism. Which is why he seems to raise such antipathy among some neocons, despite his history of rock-solid support of theoretical Republican values (small government, individual liberty, low taxes).

Of course, I also agree that he's a flawed candidate. But good gravy! I'm not waiting until Christ returns so that I can vote for the perfect candidate. He's a far better candidate at the margin than the others, and even if he loses, it will give future candidates reason to pander to freedom lovers for a change.

Glad you like the journal! Where are you, if I may ask?

I have heard rumors that there remain a handful of small government supporters still within the ranks of the Republican party, but I've yet to manage to catch one on film... elusive creatures. I'm beginning to suspect they're mythical, much like unicorns, Jesus, and William Shatner's hair.

I'm in south florida.
