Ron Paul Or No One At All!!!

I've been a Republican for over 30 years.  I've never voted for a Democrat in my life.  But I've become so disillusioned with the Republican party lately---because of their hostility toward Ron Paul and his supporters (like myself)---that I've decided that I will not vote for anyone else.  I don't care who the nominee is, if it isn't Ron Paul, I'll write his name in (or I'll stay home).  I'm so sick of this "electability" crap!  Ron Paul is the only candidate who represents me, and, in a representative form of government, that's all that matters!

If that helps Obama get re-elected, so be it.  I honestly don't care anymore.  If the Republican party cared about that - they wouldn't treat their own members with such disdain!  Screw them.  4 more years of Obama is what they deserve!!

I'm with you. But I'm a monarchist now and don't care what happens anymore.

One thing you must understand is that in the Anglo-sphere, the term 'conservative' means liberal. In the continental realm, it means upholding the Old Order and tradition. The Republican Party has always been progressive. Didn't it have it start with Abolition which is a progressive movement.

Anyway, the foundation of America is nihilist anyway. In order to not being a nihilist is one has to uphold and defend the Old Order of Throne and Altar.

And no Libertarianism is not conservativism. Libertarianism is soft anarchism.

I envision 'conservative government' as the 'conservative use of government' or the 'conservation of government', (in the same sense as you would conserve water by using less of it). For me, the term 'conservative' means a return to a constitutionally limited Republic.

And - while true Libertarianism may very well be soft anarchism - I don't see Dr. Paul as a true Libertarian. He's more of a Constitutionalist in my book.

America is not a true republic. Thomas Jefferson responding to a letter, wrote, "the introduction of the new principle of representative democracy has rendered useless almost everything written before on the structure of government; and, in a great measure, relieves our regret, if the political writings of Aristotle or of any other ancient, have been lost, or are unfaithfully rendered or explained to us."

A republic is not a democracy. Notice that TJ uses the term 'democracy'.

Here is the true definition of a republic: The Classical definition of a republic. A republic is mixed government that must have a mixed society, i.e. royalty, aristocracy, and commons. America outright rejected aristocracy so America could not have any such thing as a 'republic'.

America's form of government is a Masonic Enlightenment idea/construct and the so-called 'Enlightenment' was mostly a movement of Atheists.
