A common attack I hear on Ron Paul is that he isn’t really a Republican and shouldn’t be in the debates. (Never mind that he has caucused with the Republicans in Congress during four different decades).
Some say that he is really a Democrat while others claim he should be excluded for being a libertarian.
Those calling Paul a Democrat are just plain ignorant… he’s clearly the most conservative on taxes, spending, the Constitution, limited government and so many other issues. Can you imagine any Democrat wanting to abolish the IRS?
Meanwhile, to those that say that he should be excluded for being too libertarian, I thought maybe this quote from conservative super-star Ronald Reagan will jog their memory:
“I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism.”
Is Ronald Reagan too libertarian for the Republican party?
