I hate to break it to you...

The "old party" 20 years ago was just as hostile to liberty. They fought Reagan tooth and nail in the 70's, and undermined him when he got in. They sabotaged Goldwater in '64. The reality is that the GOP was NEVER about liberty in the first place. The GOP was created for the elites and corporations in the Lincoln era. The Democrats were actually the party of limited government at one time, but that was over 100 years ago.

While I do hope that the GOP eventually goes that direction, I believe it will take many years. In the meantime, there is only one independent that has beaten the 2 party machine in the past... Ventura. He did it in Minnesota by bringing out tons of people who normally didn't vote at all. That block is almost as large as all of the voting groups put together. If Ventura runs, he will be formidable. If he can get to 34%, he wins.
