The hue-and-cry over the Ron Paul supporters taking over the Nevada GOP is just ridiculous.
Is it the Paulites’ fault that the alleged mainstream GOP rank and file couldn’t be bothered with participating? I know that most conservatives actually, you know, work for a living? But still, if your party isn’t motivating the base enough for them to attend the caucuses that set policy and elect representatives, that tells me that your state party is as ineffective and impotent as many of the people you’ve elected over they last half-dozen years.
Let’s face it. A lot of people who believed in true constitutional reform and smaller government actually bought into the GOP line. It’s a line that has been proven inaccurate consistently since 2000. Government has grown in leaps and bounds, and since the current congress and president were elected, it has skyrocketed.
I’ll say it. Saying that Mitt Romney is a better presidential candidate than Barack Obama is like saying that you’d rather live next door to the Unabomber than Osama Bin Laden. Neither choice is a good one.
I will not recite the litany of good and bad points about both men. Suffice it to say that, paraphrasing either Max Lerner or Jery Garcia, the lesser of two evils is still evil.
My vote never gets cast with evil.
