I think Rogel is right in his contention that the Republicans could lay a great conservative groundwork for the future by nominating Ron Paul.
But I think the Republicans would have a big problem with this because they think it would basically be a concession of the 2008 election.
And whether they are aware of it or not, I don’t think most Republicans care all that much about being conservative anymore. They want to use the label “conservative”, but aren’t really interested in backing it up with their ideas and actions.
They would be wise to heed the words of Tyler Durden, “Sticking feathers up your butt does not make you a chicken.”
Let’s face facts:
* What once were considered socialists/commies are now called liberals.
* What once were considered liberals are now called conservatives.
* And what once were considered free-marketers and supporters of the Constitution are now considered nut jobs.
