Just because someone does not want to support Rand does not mean I will respect them depending on their reasons. I'm sure there are those who I could respect, for example, I can respect Obama for not wanting to support Rand, because I expect Obama to want to enslave us more in the FRB and more debt. That does not mean I agree with someone I respect. I can agree to disagree, respectively.
Ron Paul picked the GOP, none of what I am doing was my idea, but it's a damn good idea.. the best I've seen in my life. So I'm on the GOP bus and to me, Rand is our best shot, and we need folks to be preparing to run for offices.
If someone wants to take Ron Paul's message to another party.. good luck with that. If someone wants to not do anything just learn about politics.. I'm fine with that too.
