Rhino: Why Dr. Paul has embraced the left, a very, very brief summary.Submitted by rhino on Wed, 09/10/2008 - 20:28
This is only speculation, but I think I know why Dr. Paul has courted the left and has approached the market place of ideas in this manner.
I think Paul has decided that some battles should be fought at a later date.
He first wants to get people to exist.
They must first start thinking about the issues that are important instead of the latest "lipstick" gate.
Once you convince people to exist, then and only then can you open their minds to freedom.
Click on the post below, it may shed some light.
In reality, the ultimate goals of all the third party candidates are the same.
The only difference is the means by which they want to achieve those goals.
The third parties on the right want the market to achieve these goals.
The third parties on the left want the government to achieve these goals.
That is it.
The winner will get the first shot at it, and Dr. Paul is convinced that his movement has the upper hand.
