    Remember, "you liberals" was originally Rick Perry, who first applied the term "vulture capitalist to Mitt Romney. The crapfling that characterized the past election started in the primary.

    But, I agree that Romney is a decent man, and that it is a shame he didn't win the election.

    Romney is a decent man but the last person who should have been the nomination, and it was a weak pool. Romney wasn't enough differentiated from Democrats of this generation to really stand out and it cost us a second Obama term and a divided congress. Oh well, we'll have to keep paying this tab for four more years and longer.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    The one who really stood out as having a different philosophy was Ron Paul.

    But, is the country really ready for a Libertarian president?

    The only disagreement I had with Ron Paul was the speed of defense scale backs, it wouldn't have been safe. I honestly think that killed him because everyone seemed to be on board with his economic ideas and policies. Not that I am saying we need to maintain defense status quo, but the roll back has to be a little more gradual.

    Congress would have put the brakes on that scale back, at least to the point it wouldn't have left us vulnerable to attack. The president doesn't have half the power that is ascribed to him by voters.

    But, could a libertarian president be elected? I wonder. Conservatives talk about scaling back the size and scope of the federal government, but when it comes down to actually doing it to the degree that Ron Paul would want, suddenly the philosophy changes.

    I think a libertarian has a good shot within the next twenty years if we stay on this course, with the amount of inane laws we have on the books from both parties and the devaluation of the dollar I do believe we'll have a massive awakening somewhere. I think Dr. Paul or even Gary Johnson would have been far superior to either party candidate this time, unfortunately the bulk of the country wasn't ready to do the heavy lifting yet. Unfortunately in Dr. Paul's case, many people still think the president is the be all/end all of political power, so his defense remarks were more consequential than they should have been.

    One can hope. I wonder just how much money the government can give away to corporations and welfare recipients, foreign governments and agribusiness, how much borrowed money it can spend policing the world, before the whole system comes crashing down around our ears and we have to make some changes in order to survive?

    Austerity isn't far away, we are iirc only a percentage point or two behind where Greece and Spain were as a measure of debt to GDP and we got down graded so it's not more than a couple of years at this pace.

    A Libertarian president? Maybe. Ron Paul? Hell no. The guy is a whack-a-loon.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Actually, the fact that he wasn't running this year killed him.
