FeedTheCollapse: personally, I find the idea laughable and really underscores the naivete of Ron Paul supporters. They want to biatch about "stop voting for the lesser of 2 evils!", yet still are still willing to vote for a Republican, but are willing to vote for his son if only based on name recognition. It would also be funny as hell to watch former Paulites try to reconcile why Ron/Rand is promoting the previous disdained positions held by Romney.
Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: Lumpmoose: a neoconservative movementLet's make sure that we're agreeing on defined terms. I would define "neoconservatives" as "conservatives as conservatives who wish to use the government to actively advance their agenda." Now, neoconservatism is usually a Foreign Policy thing, so I'm being vague so that it can be applied to domestic issues.
clancifer: RON PAUL -- the right mix of Tea Party and crazy. Have fun, Republicans.
Dimensio: Coelacanth: Hershey Highway Patrol: kona: PopcornThey may actually need more riot police inside the convention than outside.Didn't these guys get the right to carry handguns around for the upcoming convention?No.
cman: And people call me misinformed
God's Hubris: How dare Ron Paul delegates use the rules system placed by the GOP establishment!!
BMulligan: Neo-conservatism is the evolved form of the political philosophy espoused by Leo Strauss. Because the word "neocon" has taken on such a broad meaning as to be virtually meaningless, I generally prefer the term "Straussian."
Felgraf: Why are you so convinced about, at the very least, Ohio? There's been a pretty big backlash against the Republican Governor there.
DarnoKonrad: I honestly don't know what to think of these stories. Is this a real problem or media hype?
Wicked Chinchilla: How does Paul Ryan still even count? His budgets have been HAMMERED by right and left alike going on two years now.
qorkfiend: Mentat: Coelacanth: Didn't these guys get the right to carry handguns around for the upcoming convention?And it's in Florida, so Stand Your Ground laws apply.I feel decidedly threatened by the GOP Convention.

Lumpmoose: clancifer: RON PAUL -- the right mix of Tea Party and crazy. Have fun, Republicans.While the Tea Party was started by Ron Paul disciples, most teabaggers now want nothing to do with Paul's platform. It's morphed into a neoconservative movement that wants Bush back without calling themselves "Republican".
qorkfiend: Ba'boon: If this goes poorly, and the Paulites feel like they're unfairly muscled out by the GOP, it won't end well for the party. Plenty of paleoconservatives would sooner sit this election out than vote for a neoconservative. This really is for the soul of the party.Oh, I dunno. Most of the paleoconservatives voted for Bush twice.
