Why Liberals (and everyone else) Should Support Ron Paul

It thrills me when liberals wake-up and comprehend the value of Ron Paul and his message of peace, liberty and prosperity.

At this late stage in the 2012 presidential campaign, why should anyone continue to support Ron Paul? The question is not meant to disparage Paul, but only to recognize the reality of the GOP race. On the face of things, with Rick Santorum suspending his campaign and Newt Gingrich an afterthought, it seems a sure thing that Mitt Romney will be the Republican nominee. Supporting Ron Paul, from this perspective, seems futile, and even a waste of time. But that would be an incorrect interpretation of the facts. Instead, now, for liberals (and for everyone else) is the time to do everything possible to support Ron Paul. The reason? Only by a vigorous show of support for the Texas Congressman can Americans hope to make an issue of the ever more invasive national security state that threatens to turn the United States into a nation of captives rather than a republic populated by free citizens. This goes especially for those Americans who think of themselves as liberals concerned with civil rights. Liberals face a crisis with the 2012 presidential election. The president of “hope and change,” supported so broadly four years ago, has largely been a disappointment.
