    I'd say these days it's most hip to be a social/civil libertarian and a fiscal conservative.

    I don't think many college students do that route. Most of them fell in love with Paul because of his foreign policy notions, but politely ignored his domestic policy tendencies.

    Yes, only because doing the same thing over and over with the same results while expecting different ones is in itself insanity.

    Of course not.
    His "thinking" may be from the 16th century and he may not be very bright,.....but....then, what if he is right and I am wrong......that possibility always exists...
    For "balance" we need him....

    There is too much of a connection/dependence with social and fiscal to have such a luxury.
    What we need is balance....we need things that benefit all not just some....

    the results are clearly different because his talking points are now being co-opted by the so called front tier candidates.

    But they're the same because he's still not going to win the primary.

    he is effecting the debate by injecting some serious discussion in what would otherwise be an exchange of MSM talking points where we all pretend to agree on what it means to be conservative.

    Last time I checked you don't have anything to base this on besides assumptions.
