To Stay in the GOP or to go?Submitted by liberty4us on Tue, 08/28/2012 - 20:57
Lots of discussion about leaving the GOP. It has definitely been a debate for me as well. I just want to offer a different perspective to the debate.
I could leave and join some other party but history shows me this isn't very fruitful. I'm a libertarian at heart but I don't think the LP is the path to success. Democrats, Republicans and the press have rigged the system so completely that I think a third party is the long road.
I can stay registered in the GOP and continue to build the foundation we've built over the last 6 years. We had 6 state delegations nominate Ron Paul. We are making progress with this path. It may be slower than we like but it is in the right direction. Clearly, the establishment GOP is against liberty but the regular members are turning.
I wish we could have our liberty today but that isn't going to happen. He have a long bumpy road ahead but we are on the road.
I will be voting for someone other than Romney and Obama but will remain in the GOP. We have come too far to start over somewhere else.
