Run, Ron, Run... from the G.O.P.!


"Is Ron Paul running for president in the wrong party?" asks the great Justin Raimondo, arguing rightly that " the Paulians must make a decision: either break free of the bonds of the GOP, or else face a future of dwindling political fortunes" — Ron Paul’s Hour of Decision.

"While Paul regularly invokes the 'Old Right' and the legacy of Robert A. Taft and the Taft Republicans, this tradition has been long forgotten by Republican voters – and deliberately buried and disdained by the party’s intellectuals, such as they are, who regularly rail against 'isolationism' and hail FDR and Winston Churchill as their chosen icons"

Wrong. Paull is building an alliance with Romney. He is angling to shape the platform. He won't bolt the GOP now, it would destroy his son's political future in the party. and it is the son who will be able to build on Paul's legacy thanks to his ability to reach out and built coalitions with conservatives. If Paul bolts the GOP, that vision comes tumbling down. He won't wreck the future out of spite. And in staying within the GOP, he could have a long term effect similar to that Goldwater had in 1964. If he leaves, his movement goes the way of Pat Buchanan's after Pat's 2000 Reform campaign.
