Richard A. Viguerie: Time for Ron Paul to Help the Republican Party

Time for Ron Paul to Help the Republican Party

Ron PaulIn 1996, when libertarian icon Ron Paul was running for re-election to Congress as a Republican, a challenger filed against him in the General Election. This challenger wasn’t an establishment Republican or a liberal Democrat, he was a Natural Law Party candidate whose national platform included much of Ron Paul’s agenda.

In the key swing state of Virginia, former Republican Congressman Virgil Goode has qualified to be on the ballot as the Constitution Party’s candidate and former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson has qualified in states across the country as the Libertarian Party candidate, despite running in the Republican primary elections and demanding to be included in the televised Republican primary debates.

In states like Montana, where there are close Senate races, Libertarian candidates are pulling votes from solid conservative candidates, like Republican Congressman Denny Rehberg, who is locked in a race with Democratic Senator Jon Tester that could determine control of the U.S. Senate.

The peculiar tendency for libertarians and constitutionalists to turn on anyone who works to change the Republican Party from within has reared its ugly head again this year in the aftermath of the Republican National Convention.

Admittedly, Ron Paul and his delegates to the Convention were treated in a ham handed way by establishment Republicans – but that is hardly cause to hand the election to Barack Obama and control of the Senate to the Democrats...

By George Rasley
Liberals are going to impute all kinds of bad things to you if you are a Republican, so you might as well run as a conservative and sell the real conservative agenda, as opposed to trying to rebut the phony one they construct.
