    welfare-socialists think anyone who doesn't buy into the circle of dependency is crazy. Its a common theme among the reactionary statist socialists. Stalinists condemned anyone who didn't buy into that strain of collectivism to mental institutions

    What about sane people who realize that the "fair tax" is a massive and regressive sales tax and going back to the gold standard would simply crash our economy so hard we'd be a third world country?

    a fair tax prevents the dem masters from buying the votes of the parasites with the money of the minority who pay most of the income taxes

    I for example, am part of the pro-choice, libertarian non-religious wing of the GOP. I know plenty of libertarians that are bible thumping right to lifers as well
    Actually, the Libertarian spectrum is huge and includes right to lifers, as well as some who are pro-choice, and even anarcho-capitalists have a home in the Libertarian movement. You will actually find it someone difficult to find two Libertarians in the same room that will agree with each other on everything.

    Which brings me to the Tea Party movement. What I am seeing at the present time is REAL Tea Partiers taking over, and not the fake Tea Party Express, which has been attempting to hijack the movement. I was harsh on them for a while, but now I am very optimistic that the real McCoy is going to take the party back, and not the fakes. To me, the Tea Partiers are essentially two groups. One group could be called Paleocons, like myself, who want the government out of things that are none of their damn business to begin with. The other group consists of those who want to regulate peoples' lives, in spite of the anti-government rhetoric they pay lip service to. These are the ones I am happy to see kicked to the curb.

    Yes, Rand Paul does have some issues that I strongly disagree with, but he also brings to the table some very good common sense. I am happy to see him win, and I think he will be a great Senator.

    From what I've read about Rand, and admittedly its limited thus far, Rand seems to be what I've been saying was needed for Ron Paul for a while...

    Namely, Ron Paul's generalized views mixed with some legitimate pragmatism and realism, mixed with a slightly less radical foreign defense policy.

    Actually it just bankrupts them and pushes even more people into social assistance programs but by all means, keep dehumanizing poor people if it makes it easier for you.

    The gold standard is the most obvious (although by no means the only) example.
