Ron Paul, the Last of the Nobility

“Ron Paul, to me, represents the last, dying breath of true conservatism in the Republican party.... But if he’s going to be a dying breath, I want him to be a gasping one. I want him to be a loud one. I want him to be a shout. I want him to look every other Republican candidate and voter in the eye and have them see, face-to-face, what they’re, as a party, choosing to eschew. I want him to remind them of who they once were. I want him to stand up straight, head held high, and be honest with them, as he always has been. I want him to tell them what they’re giving up. I want him to shame them.”
