    I was watching Hannity and Colmes and heard Alan Colmes talk about all of the anti-war Republicans backing Ron Paul. I was curious, how many of Paul's supporters on this forum consider themselves Republicans?

    I am a libertarian, but registered Republican because I refuse to waste my primary vote with closed primaries... And a Ron Paul supporter, of course.

    Life long republican here, voted for Bush, Dole, Bush twice. Proudly backing Ron Paul because I think hes closer to the party's ideals than anyone else.

    When I had to be 'registered' to a party it was Republican. I am not now registered to a party in VA. I have voted Libertarian before. I do not, nor will I ever in the future, consider myself a Republican. I now consider myself 'of libertarian mindset' or 'a believer in the Constitution'

    I vote R about 70% of the time, when it is either R or D. Liberty is of great interest to me. Ron Paul sounds like the only presidential candidate out there that represents what America is suposed to be. The rest of them seem to want more big government.

    Government is bad at running my personal life.
    Government is bad at handling my money.

    All I need from government is for them to arrange for infrastructure to be built and maintained, provide defence, and provide a legal framework. Beyond that I can live my life for myself.

    If more liberty minded people like us would join the GOP we could start changing this for the better at local levels. Then we could start at higher levels. It has to start some where.

    Registered Republican, but I vote for the person, not the party.

    The same here. Its a sad state of affairs that the Neo conservatives spend more than a drunken democrat.I just want my liberty and uncle sams dick skinners out of my pockets. I expect very little in return.

    IN the past I generally leaned Republican, but I could never commit to call myself one. I made the mistake of voting Bush in 2000, it was a hold-your-nose-and-vote-against-Gore thing. After 911 and the ascendency of the Republican Police and War State, I vowed never again.

    The only thing that can draw me back to voting for Republicans is a committment to following the Constitution, protecton of individual liberty, small government, and avoiding imperial-style foreign policy. So for me it's really Ron Paul or nobody.

    Always a registered constitutionalist Republican. Now a Ron Paul constitutionalist Republican! But I've never given $$$$ to or voted in a primary election before. Now I'm even canvasing for RP door to door!

    I believe in Liberty. Most inboth parties are mortal enemies of liberty and do their best to extinguish our freedoms while buying us off with corrupt giveaways.

    I often vote Republican in presidential races because of the greater likelihood that we will get more reasonable Supreme Court Nominees.

    Ron Paul is a breath of fresh air. The Republicans have done more to harm him in both his presidential run and hiscongressional races than the Democrats. That should tell you something.

    The really important thing aboutRon Paulis that he respects the limits of power that the constitution places upon him. Others in the presidential race will squander you rights because they think they are smarter than you and really know what is good for you, even if you don't like it. In short I think that the only candidate that can keep us from sliding into Nanny State Hell is Ron Paul.

    I fought in this war, and in others before it. I am not anti-war. I am pro constitution.I think that we should insist that congress declare war before we embroil our nation in the affairs of others. I believe we should kill Al Quaeda without mercy every place that we find them. The Legislative Branch should give the Executive Branch a clear mandate to kick a$$ and take names. The men and women of our armed forces deserve nothing less from their elected representatives.

    I actually like the show, it presents arguments from both the right and left.

    No.



    I disagree with Ron Paul on to many issues that are dear to my heart, and so I sort of lost it when I saw him compared to ObeWan.



    I should know better than click on the Ron Paul threads.

    I'm not trying to impose, but would you mind giving me examples of issues where you vastly disagree with Ron Paul? Which candidate are you supporting at this point, if any?
    I'm curious because I'm surprised there would be someone here who disgrees with him enough to "barf on someone's parade".
    Please reply, I'm truly interested.

    I am from a family of die hard Conservatives, which I identify.

    The Republicans in congress are a bunch of leftist liberals. Big spenders, war hawks (if you know anything about history, liberals are the war hawks, conservatives realize war = bigger govt).

    I am going to vote for him next month because I think he is the only one that really undertands and will do something about the pending fiscal crisis. Our great country is headed for hard times if we don't get a handle on our gov't spending. SS, Medicare/cade are all going to bankrupt us and no one is doing anything about it. Add the wars on top of that, ugh.

    If we would have spent what we are on Iraq, we could have developed an alternative fuel source by now and forgotten about the middle east forever.

    The "Republicans" in Congress could have done great things when they held all the ropes, instead they doubled the size of the government.

    I am beginning to think Conservatism is dead...

    You and I think similarly. Conservatism is dead. Neo-cons are what populate republican spots these days. That's why the republican party is shriking fast. To relate to the current Rep. roster you either have to be a bible thumper, a war hawk, or....

    Everyone should do themselves a favor and protect their wealth against WHOEVER gets into office in 2008, BUY GOLD! I've been doing so since 2002. ALWAYS bet on the side of human greed (govt spending). If anyone wants to know more, msg me.

    "Conservative" is an adjective, not a pronoun or proper noun. Example: if Hitler killed 10 million people and Stalin killed 5 million people, then Stalin would be considered a conservative mass murderer.

    When it comes to selecting presidential candidates, they are either constitutionalists, fascists or socialists, or a blend of both fascist/socialist. Which description defines YOUR candidate?
    Objectivist.
