I've been a libertarian since the 1980's

That is when I started supporting Ron Paul. I was upset when he went back to the GOP, but I see what his goal was now, and it worked. Getting into that GOP national debate made him almost mainstream. It woke up a lot of people. I mean, when I voted for him for president when he ran as a Libertarian in the 80's, he only got about 250,000 votes. Now he gets more than 1 million.

I switched to the GOP, but I have never voted for a GOP for president. I vote GOP sometimes for senate, depending on who is running. Mostly I still vote Libertarian.

I do contribute to Rand Paul. I totally support him, but since I live in WA, I can't vote for him.
