If the Ron Paul actually wants to see President Obama defeated in November, he should bow out of the Republican nomination process quickly, accept whatever offer the Romney camp offers him for a speaking slot during the convention, and endorse the inevitable nominee.
Of course, there are Latino libertarians out there. But in general, talking Hispanics into espousing the Ron Paul agenda is only slightly easier than getting the pope to show up at the Stonewall Inn for a drink.
The number of Asians in the country is on the rise. Will this group of voters be courted by candidates to the same extent as other constituencies?
Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert were on vacation, but Conan O'Brien in particular picked up the slack, not only having a great week on his own show, but also popping up in New York on Letterman to lay into Jay Leno in a way he hasn't done since everything went down more than two years ago.
Is the Ron Paul campaign finally over? Depends on whom you ask.
Americans Elect was never a grassroots movement. At best, it was a well-funded organization in which a number of elites could dream up a fake democratic process and pretend they were above the silly infighting of the plebes.
Why are we trusting of authority in our society? It's an old, even clichéd question from a well-populated side that is so often seen as the "counter," or the "other" side.
Mitt Romney and the Republican Party establishment are currently in a bind over what to do with Ron Paul at the convention.
What if Paul's supporters just ignore the binding rules and vote their consciences? What if, in Tampa, all those Paul supporters who are bound by state rules to vote for Romney put the ball firmly back in the GOP's court, and say, "Your move"?
Whether Rand Paul could now -- against all odds -- catapult him to the vice presidency is likely to be one of the more compelling dramas to unfold as the GOP nominating race slowly draws to a close.
Last year, Bachmann mentioned that one of her favorite economists is Ludwig von Mises. Her endorsement of Romney, though, has Mises turning in his grave. Romney's political views represent everything the Austrian economist despised.
We have been entertained and outraged as the political theater of the absurd that was the Republican primary played out. From one state to the next, a collection of mixed nuts attacked each other and President Obama with a wild-eyed hysteria that is, frankly, beneath the office.
if any other Republican presidential candidate were to have stopped by the UC Davis quad to give a campaign speech last week, there's little doubt in my mind that it would have been overshadowed by some form of protest.
Big changes could be coming to America's least favorite federal agency.
Federalist conservatives love shifting power from the federal government to states because they believe that the closer government is to its citizens, the more responsive it is to those citizens. They could not be more wrong.
Ron Paul and Gary Johnson should run together for the Libertarian Party nominations for president and vice president, respectively. That wouldn't guarantee their selection. However, Paul-Johnson would be the strongest ticket the LP could offer. It would be the best alternative available to the Republicrats.
