Allot of people think like your Dad, who put it to you in simple terms.
If you polled my area, plenty of people will tell you, "Republicans are rich, but I'm poor, so I vote Democratic". IOWs I need or want the government handouts so I vote for them. Your Dad is thinking, "I'm tired of being robbed by the government and I don't want to hand anything more out." To him, and me there is a difference (the Ron Paul Republicans on the inside, like what the Rachel Maddow YouTube showed).
If Ron Paul won the nomination, your Dad would vote for him. Your Dad probably knows people who are connected to the central committees, and he going to vote for Romney over Obama.
Obama needs to get OUT.
