And so Ron Paul has something to do with that how?

If you want to slam Democrats in general, I suggest a new thread. I don't want to muddy up this one with that issue.

Stepping back into topic, I contend that Ron Paul isn't a true Republican, as his ideology clearly takes a step back from the micromanagement of peoples' lives with a live and let live mentality. That is actually the Libertarian view. I.e., "I don't care what you do in your own home, just don't touch my stuff!"

I fancied him as a bit of a libertarian too, expect he had a few things I didn't think were so much so, but up in NH republicans and libertarians seem to be about the same.

Radio talk show host Thom Hartmann likes to refer to them as 'Republicans who like to smoke pot and get laid.'

That's probably keeping him out of popularity with 'right to life' and 'gay marriage-a-phobes'. Don't expect Focus on the Family to be rendering an endorsement there.

Paul believes in property rights. He doesn't believe anyone has the right to pollute.

sorry!, forgot about this thread. YES, the comment about the dems IS pertinent to this thread. simply because 88HF is in an area of prodominantly dem voters, yet he chooses to think(and vote) for himself.

i've seen it MANY times--an uniformed voter, voting strictly on heresay, follows the crowd blindly; be it family, social status, income range, etc.

now as far as the mud slinging goes, the repubs have been blasted far more than the dems on this site! it's agreed tho, no more on this thread.

i'll say it again. we need more independent politcians. but, can any party outside the dems and repubs win a major election?

Can anyone really call southern democrats "democrats" in the normal sense...just look at the guy running for governor of Mississippi! Bah.

Independents could win with major overhaul of the election system, however, the US has been a country for too long and now it's stagnant to any real change.

intelligence does not imply wisdom. but to address the second issue of support from dartmouth, i trust that most would research before rushing to judgment.

Would you be willing to have publicly funded elections? Again, that would cost you and me more in taxes, but then we could go back to calling a bribe a bribe instead of a "campaign contribution".

I think that Instant-Runoff-Voting (IRV) would go a long way towards solving the big/little party problem :

Carlos,

VERY good info. had no idea something like IRV existed. can you imagine the risk/reward factor to the two major parties if this was fully implemented?

it would give independents a chance while making the "big dogs" clean up their acts or be forced out.

yes more/higher taxes is a sore spot for me. the gov't needs to budget like many of us do. perhaps that's what makes Ron Paul so attractive.
