Republican Commentators are Catching on- Embrace Ron Paul & The Liberty MovementSubmitted by Smaulgld.com on Mon, 11/12/2012 - 14:30
Got this one from a very standard conservative magazine- Town Hall
The title is "How Republicans Can Find Themselves"
#1. Keep an open mind. Here the writer takes Glen Beck and Rush Limbaugh to task for dedicating some of their radio shows to trash Ron Paul. She should have thrown in Mark Levin too, who spent a few hours spewing hateful invective towards the good doctor.
It is paradoxical that these three supposed believers in the constitution and limited government and taxes would go out of their way to impugn Mr. Paul when many of their anti liberal anti big government rants come straight from Ron Paul or his reading list.
For example Glen beck touted the book Road to Serfdom by Hayek and even did a special anti Federal Reserve show with Edward Griffin.
Levin often cites John Locke, Tocqueville , Thomas Jefferson and warns against "utopian" central planners, the printing of money and of losing our liberty.
Rush, Levin and Beck just can't fathom that Ron pauls foreign policy is not like their aggressive neo con militarist expensive foreign policy.
Rather than point out where they agree and where they disagree, as Jim Demint does, the three stooges go apoplectic whenever they hear the name Ron Paul.
This should stop if they wish to gain a wider audience. To be "fair and balanced" Sean Hannity is more charitable to Ron- Sean throws his neocon defense of Israel, warns on Iran but admits he agrees with Dr. Paul on the budget and smaller government.
#2 Embrace allies
The writer notes that Ron paul was unceremoniously dissed at the convention in violation of the rules. This won the republican party an enormous amount of unnecessary ill will with that Paulites.
#3.Stick to Principles
Again the writer notes that only Ron Paul gave principled non pandering responses during the debates.The public needed to see a contrast between Obama and the republican candidates and they really didn't see it.
The great thing about the article is all three of her points relate back to Ron Paul.
Unlike Ann Coulter who first supported Chris crispy creme Christie and then romney, this writer gives a fresh look at the obvious:
Ron Paul and the liberty Movememt hold the keys to the success of the future Republican party.
