Is he named after the pseudo-philosopher?

No, his name is Randall.

Anyways, hopefully he crucifies Romney and the establishment.

He won't. He's part of the "establishment" in case you have not noticed.

Then why would you think he would crucify the establishment?

I don't think that. I hope that. Two very different things.

So you've gone from proclaiming Ron Paul won every caucus and secretly most primaries and would be the Rep presidential nominee using his double secret probation delegates to having Granny Paul be an important speaker at the convention to now just hoping his son says something mean about Romney?

Wow, how the high and mighty have fallen!!!

Dude, don't harass the Ron Paul supporters and the strict libertarians. We need them.

The libertarians have changed the party already. They should continue to work , within the confines of the system, to bring the party towards a more fiscally minded platform.

Splitting the conservatives between libertarians and republicans only gives the Marxist in this country more seats in congress and the potus.

It's hard to argue this point with people who think America was in the wrong for fighting ww2 even after we were attacked. This is why the majority of the country sees them as a fringe group instead of embracing the sound fiscal policies that libertarians contribute to the conservative cause.

ummmm, what?

Most people see them as a fringe group because the media tells them they are a fringe group. While Libertarians don't advocate for war, most are ok with it so long as Congress votes on it.

I was talking about post I read in the atom bomb thread. Those saying this is how I have come to see Paul supporters as a whole.
I actually, believe it or not, would love to have seen Paul moderate some of his stances and become the nominee. I just can't relate to what I have come to see Paul supporters from reading this board. I agree with him on almost every stance domestically but not in foreign Policy. Still, I would vote for him instead of letting my disagreements take away a conservative vote to unseat Obama.

He endorsed Romney so he's not going to crucify Romney.

I've never understood why an "Authorization for the Use of Force" is less valid than something that says "Declaration of War." What is so special about those words that it makes war ok but something else, with the same meaning, is bad?

1 person saying go vs. a majority of people saying go...kinda a big deal in my book.

Congress passes Authorization for the Use of Force resoutions.

Such as the ones for Iraq and Afghanistan. How is that any different than a resolution that uses the words "Declaration of War"?
