Why is Ron Paul not popular in the Republican Party?
Of all the Republican candidates, Ron Paul has the best policy that addresses the national debt, yet he is not a front runner.
His answers are too real. He supports legalizing marijuana and a number of other initiatives that don't conform to the "conservative" agenda.
He isn't a Republican. The Republican party is very often an oxymoron. They espouse fiscal restraint, but never balance budgets, and tend to tank economies. They argue for limited government, except when it comes to battleships and uteruses and helping their corporate masters. They use these things as code words and always give a little wink when they say them. They say them to trick people into giving them power so they can carry out their agenda. Ron Paul doesn't. He actually believes in these things and seems to truly believe in limiting the size, scope, and power of the federal government. That is heretical.
Because he isn't a supporter of the military industrial complex, and he wants to legalize drugs. That alienates the neocons and the social conservatives. What's left is the economic conservatives, but these are also the business interests who want to buy government influence. That basically leaves his constituency with the principled libertarians and the people who just hate all things government.
Even though I am extremely liberal, Paul would not be in bed with corporations the way the current GOP is. He makes everyone upset!
