One of the underestimated services that the Ron Paul campaign was how it exposed liberals and conservatives for the frauds and hypocrites that they are. All these years, we've heard conservatives preach about how they were for the Constitution and small government. Here comes a guy with a near perfect voting record and they reject him. And we've heard liberals tell us how anti-war they were, how much for civil liberties. And here comes Ron Paul who is more anti-war than any liberal, more pro-civil liberties than any liberal, yet they reject him. What's their excuse. He's against the welfare state and nationalized health care. All of a sudden they're pure. But in the past they'll make excuses for any liberal that deviates from the creed to support war and the police state. As long as they're for socialism or welfarist, all sins are forgiven. Same goes for conservatives. They'll tolerate Medicare Pard D, doubling of the size of the Department of Ed, tax increases, increase in regulations, bailouts, deficits, etc. But if you're anti-war, forget it. You are read out of the party. The real reason they hate him is because he shattered the left/right paradigm for many. As long the liberals (who are also warmongers) could rail against more warmongering conservatives and conservatives (who embrace the whole socialistic welfare state from the new deal to the Great Society) could rail against the supposedly more socialistic liberals, everything was fine. But here comes a guy who is anti-war, pro-free market and pro-civil liberty. We can't have that.
