Ron Paul the GOP is Not my Party Remark is Why He is a True Conservative

A great read.
"But the most tragic of things – and I mean tragic in the old way: the failing of a great man – is that the Republicans are losing a true bedrock of principle. They are losing a sincere belief in American Conservatism, a political philosophy that takes its principles from the Founding and a belief in the inherent, God-given rights of individuals."
