Ron Paul was a breath of fresh air for the Republican party. So was Gary Johnson until he switched to the Libertarian Party. Those guys got it right more often than not. They represented true limited government and real market based capitalism - not the crony capitalism or other political nonsense that pervades both parties.
Paul and Johnson were fighting for the soul of the Republican party - fighting against the crony capitalists (big government in the economy Republicans) and social conservatives (big government in the bedroom Republicans). They lost and now we are left with a Republican party that is virtually indistinguishable from Democrats except on meaningless social issues.
Sadly, with Romney, we are left with yet another election between a Giant Douche and a Turd Sandwich...
Obama is pretty bad, there is no doubt, but why would I want to vote for Romney after this silly GOP convention? Why is there a need to pretend all Republicans like or even want Mitt Romney as their candidate? In this day and age - with camera phones, twitter, blogs - why bother with such BS?
Why block delegates for a candidate that doesn't have enough to even come close to threatening Mitt Romney's nomination?
Why block one man's sign then confiscate it?
Why would I vote for a candidate when his party operates like that (see video below)?
The video above reminds me a lot of the petty tyrant attitudes that are prevalent among the bureaucrats running institutions of "higher" education. Block and ban all opinions you disagree with... Sigh...
I wouldn't support Romney and Ryan anyway. I'd rather have four more years of Obama ruining the progressive brand than Romney and Ryan ruining the free market capitalism brand...like Bush.
