Agree with you completely, but there is an important reason.

“But let it not be said that we did nothing. Let not those who love the power of the welfare/warfare state label the dissenters of authoritarianism as unpatriotic or uncaring. Patriotism is more closely linked to dissent than it is to conformity and a blind desire for safety and security. Understanding the magnificent rewards of a free society makes us unbashful in its promotion, fully realizing that maximum wealth is created and the greatest chance for peace comes from a society respectful of individual liberty.” -Ron Paul

I'm trying to imagine how Ron Paul must have felt year-after-year when he would introduce meaningful legislation in Congress only to have it go nowhere.
