as an example of not defending liberty. i don't want to debate each and every example. the people who read the DP are fully aware of them all, although some would rather ignore or rationalize them.
the neocons in both parties are no way going to give up their power. you see it everywhere: foreign policy, NSA, MSM mouthpieces, officials and politicians blatantly lying. with zero repercussions, and applauding more police state tactics etc
they would rather destroy the party and go down in flames rather than see the ideas of ron paul embraced.
