What concessions does he demand?
Cutting down the US military to a force capable of defending only the US proper, withdrawing all troops from foreign countries, closing all overseas bases, terminating all defense commitments, and all aid programs, to all of America’s allies, never intervening militarily abroad, closing the Fed, legalizing drugs, and reinstating the gold standard.
On the laughable AntiWar.com forum, a blogger named Justin has recently posted a ridiculous screed titled “An Open Letter to Ron Paul”, in which he calls on his pseudo-prophet to run as a third party candidate.
Ron Paul is a RINO in the purest sense. He eschewed the Libertarian label and mounted the red, white and blue elephant to transport him to a viable candidacy. He is not a Republican, except in name. He is an unprincipled Libertarian who sold out his true title in order to gain traction in his presidential campaign.
The Ron Paul supporters with whom I have debated have a dubious patriotism. They sound a lot more like anti-war, pot smoking, sex-drugs and rock and roll hippies than they do Tea Party Patriots.
