Libertarians for Ron PaulSubmitted by brandon_simpson on Thu, 11/03/2011 - 22:54
I'm a new member of the Libertarian Party. After spending 7 months in France and traveling to other European countries, I decided that I could not in good conscience support either the Democrats or Republicans. I saw the end result of extreme liberal policies there, and I did not like what I saw. To me both parties believe in some type of control of our lives.
This led me to research alternative parties/candidates, and I decided that Ron Paul was the best possible contender for the 2012 election.
After visiting the Libertarian Party's Facebook page, I decided to make my own Facebook page called Libertarians for Ron Paul. One of the users there said that Ron Paul was not a Libertarian. This baffled me, because their logo has the following five lines on it:
End the Wars
End the Fed
End the Patriot Act
End the Drug Wars
End the Bailouts
It sounds like they should be supporting Ron Paul. I've decided, that even though I'm a Libertarian, to register as a Republican to vote for Paul in the primary. If the Democrats are willing to change party affiliation (Blue Republicans, then so can Libertarians (Libertarians for Ron Paul)
