    Just do your own research on the positions of Ron and Rand Paul and you will find out much more. But I suspect you know this going in.

    Ron and Rand do not support racism, homophobia or xenophobia.

    As for rolling back almost every political reform I see that as good thing, but then you knew that already. It is radical? Maybe in this day and age where we need government just to retire, but its not really radical.

    So radical! All of this non government stuff is just outrageous!

    That means nothing to me. Have anything of value?

    I approve of repealing the 17th amendment and find nothing radical about returning to the way it used to be.

    Ron and Rand do not support racism, homophobia or xenophobia.
    That must explain why Ron Paul has never voted for any civil rights bill that has ever come before him and has even gone out of his way to say he would have voted against the ones in the past.

    As for rolling back almost every political reform I see that as good thing, but then you knew that already
    Regardless if you favor that or not, it is on the extreme end of the political spectrum and that is the point. Thank you for showing it by your support of some of the radical right wing ideas I linked to.

    If you need to understand the position I will explain it since I do share the same opinion has Ron. Would you like to actually understand the position?

    The constitution is so radical. I'm well aware of this.

    Its all well and good to throw out blanket "sources" and claim they justify whatever position it is one attempting to "prove"

    racism

    Prove it....show us how we are ALL Racist, it's your assetion.

    homophobia

    See above....

    xenophobia

    See above.....

    Just do your own research on the positions of Ron and Rand Paul and you will find out much more.

    Really? You want to prove they are the forefront of Party?

    Re: Is Compromise a Thing of the Past

    Btw hay, you were supposed to argue against republicans in general not Ron, Rand or Sarah Palin. You didn't really do that yet. I willing to admit that Ron, Rand, and Sarah are radical in their own ways, but is the republican party in general?

    You have no idea what I support and don't support because you vision is obscured by your own bias. My premsis is that some form of government is needed in order to keep order. Men aren't angels.

    Anyways, Ron and Rand have a good basis for their opinion. They aren't repubs though. They are libertarian. Most repubs are corporate shrills just like a lot of dems are "labor" shrills.

    Re: Is Compromise a Thing of the Past

    People only compromise if a compromised solution is significantly getter than the status quo. For example, in the NBA, the owners stand to lose more money by NOT having a season rather than having one, so they have little incentive to compromise unlessna compromise is one HEAVILY in their favor
