During the recent interview of Congressman Paul with Jon Stewart on the Daily Show, Jon asked Ron a question that gets to the crux of the divide between progressive Liberalism and libertarianism.
Jon's question was:
Does the failure of government to protect adequately make it a failure of government having that responsibility? Does their inability to do it effectively make it so that they shouldn't do it?
As the person who coined the term "Blue Republican" -- a moniker for former Democrats and Independents who are registering Republican for Ron Paul in 2012 -- I think much rests on the answer to it.

Washington Post points out an interesting problem. While Ron Paul has a huge following, relatively few of us are registered as Republicans...so we can't vote for him in the primaries.
We really need his fans and supporters to register as Republicans, even if it's just temporary, like this group of Blue Republicans: https://www.facebook.com/bluerepublican?sk=info
Have you registered republican yet?
The Blue Republican strategy is helpful but limited in its appeal. It assumes a conversion experience or a realization that one is consistently libertarian. An outreach to Democrats must deal realistically with the fact that most Democrats are not economic libertarians, and they fear that massive cuts in military spending will lead to huge job losses without substantial government intervention.
Register Republican for Ron Paul! (Blue Republicans):
It is important that you register Republican NOW; some states require voters to register a full three months ahead of the primaries. Share with your friends and spread the word!
My Fellow Supporters of Liberty,
It is clear that the media is against us. It is clear that the corporations are against us, and it is clear that this evil system will not go down without a fight. Our movement by many is considered "revolutionary", as we wish to move away from the direction our country has been headed in, and closer towards what the founding fathers intended for us.
I'm working on a blog post about Ron Paul directed at my liberal friends. I'm hearing more grumbling about Obama than usual so I think it's time to strike :).
Two points I want to highlight are 1) Ron's compassionate transition plans and 2) the difference between Ron's philosophies and things he'd actually be able to accomplish in the face of congress.
Regarding the latter, it seems to me that the things liberals are really scared about (shutting down the department of education, IRS, FDA, etc) tend to be the ones that would never pass congressional approval anyway.
I know alot of us have been saying this, but I want someone who is close to the campaign to get the word to them that the MOST IMPORTANT thing that we can do is to win Iowa.
While not an important state normally (Mike Huckabee won in 2008 and didn't win the nomination), for us it is IMMENSELY important due to the lack of faith in Ron's ability to win and the fact that the Media will do us NO favors if we get anything less than a victory.
Great article! I imagine we will find more and more of these types of articles being written.

I truly believe that I speak for so many young progressives that would be proponents for peace, clean food and water, and a government that actually helps and cares for its citizens.
After 8 years of GWB and the lies about WMDs, 9-11, Monsanto, Iraq...etc...anyone coming from the other party looked like a better choice. I was somehow still under the illusion that the Democratic Party would work for the people and not corporate/banking/defense industry interests.
I cried when Obama won. I really thought it was a new dawn for the US and the world as a whole. I was so ashamed of the Bush administration... all the violence and greed just made me ashamed to be from the US. Somehow though I still thought that there was a difference between the two parties.
From a tactical standpoint, one of the strongest arguments we can make for Ron Paul having a chance to win the General Election, is that he can pull away Democratic and Independent votes from Obama. No other candidate will be able to do this, and Likely Republican Voters need to understand that as a tactical way to get a Republican into the White House.
Here's my video explaining more.
