Ron Paul supporters: here's the ultimate reason you need to drop the GOP and go Libertarian after Tampa

Arvin Vohra, Libertarian candidate for US House in Maryland, nails it.

After pointing out all the pressure put on Rand Paul not to allow his father to bolt, and the pressure put on Ron Paul himself not to attack Mitt Romney directly with everything he had, Arvin hits the Money Quote:
The notion of “working within” the Republican Party is ludi crous. If the Repuli can establishment can pressure Ron Paul into foregoing attacks on a super-statist like Mitt Romney, then what could they do to the rest of us?

Kindly explain how Mitt Romney is a "super statist," yet gets attacked regularly by the Dems and the liberal media, just within the last few weeks for being an "extreme libertarian," a "Goldwater-ite," an "Ayn Rand extremist" and "like a 9/11 terrorist for his proposed spending cuts."

If Romney's a "statist" as you suggest, that would make CBS, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, NY Times, WaPo, LA Times, Debbie Blabber-mouth Schultz, Obama, Hillary and the rest, flaming Nazi-Fascist-Stalinist-Pol Potian Genocidal Communist maniacs."

I guess I will leave it to Mr. Vohra to explain his use of the term "super-statist" for Mitt Romney.

Given that he has proposed more money for defense, left Medicare off the table for budget-balancing purposes, and proposes either continuing or expanding Federal intrusion into public education, it's difficult to see how one could make that case, huh?

Appealing to Barack Obama as evidence of Mitt's libertarianism pretty much only means you're desperate because nobody else is calling him that.

More money for defense, do you mean like more money for fighting Islamo-Fascists who want to force our wives/girlfriends to wear ugly black burkas from head to toe, hang our gay friends from lampposts, jail marijuana smokers for life, outlaw booze and alcohol and completely ban free speech?

Dude, I'd describe more money for fighting Islamo-Naziism as absolutely PRO-LIBERTY.

Islamism is Statist.

So Steve, than why don't you attack Obama for his Marxist Muslim-ism?

It's just assinine to attack someone who is with us on 70% of the issues (I'd argue Mitt is with libertarians more like 90% of the time).

When you've got someone who is with us 0% of the time.

Here's an analogy.

Yes, Communist Vietnam sucked! They were an absolute hellhole in the 1970s. Mortal enemies of the United States. Probably about a 10% on the freedom scale.

But ya know what? Right next door there was another country, a complete 0 on the freedom scale: Pol Pot's Cambodia and the Khmer Rouge.

Mass genocide. Never seen before in human history. Estimated 2 million Cambodians slaughtered in some of the most brutal ways imaginable out of a population of 6.5 million. Made Hitler's Nazis look like a kindergarten class.

Do you support the horrible Vietnamese Communists in their invasion of Cambodia to stop the slaughter. Abso-fuckin'-lutely! You don't even think about it.

Obama - Romney.

Do you support the guy who is with us 70% of the time over the guy who is with us 0% of the time?
