Long time viewer first time poster. I was converted in '08. My whole life I've been a "neocon" and thought I was conservative. I followed Foxnews religiously and when Obama was elected I was afraid for our country (rightfully so). What I didn't realize at the time was that the alternative would not have been much better. My point is that many people who are republicans fall, unfortunately, into the right/left paradigm that has only two choices in the political arena. Many of my friends are conservative and simply see the "R" and the "D" and fail to see the issues ie: the reasons why our last republican canadate was no better. As we all know, many people who do not get it yet, say things to me like, "Ron Paul is a liberal, he even wants to legalize drugs", which we all know is true but we also know that he would leave it up to the states which is a big distinction. I'm sure many of you have seen the following video but I've shown it to a few of my friends and they have started to understand. I've never smoked, snorted, huffed, anything in my life and people are amazed I hold this position. Many people not as informed believe just the people who participate in these activities hold these views.
