    Ron Paul opposed the Iraq War from the beginning. Root supported the invasion of Iraq. He is no Ron Paul, just another GOP WAR-monger who has changed his tune when the war went wrong. Stop the war and stop W.A.R.!

    I wasn’t alive when Reagan was campaigning, but he was the furthest thing from a Libertarian. Is Root kidding with that? Reagan was a huge interventionists and tripled our national debt. Spending was out of control.

    So the libertarian party is Roots TOOL to get elected pres. in 16 years.
    I wonder which party he’ll be using 16 years from now.
    I don’t see that very many Ron Paul supporters would support Root. Maybe a couple would.
    I did like the debate between Root and Gravel the other day, but I wouldn’t call either of them libertarians.

    Indeed Kenny, Root is no Ron Paul. Root is also no real “maverick”, he is someone that will follow more the general flow, as one can see with all his uncritical use of “neocon” language. Also Ron Paul, Goldwater, Reagan all had political experience when they run for office, Root has zero experience. Root has also criticized Paul in a recent radio interview. Reagan had the rhetoric, but not the determination and vision and power to cut government, he expanded it! Paul voted no on Reagan’s first budget as president! He would really put his money where his mouth is. Also,
    Paul is a kind, smart and intelligent man with real service to people, while Root is more an arrogant and loud talker.

    You know when you are heading to the convention, people start trying to sell you in their candidate. One of the guys I know, a speaker for LEAP and a generally cool guy was trying to convince me that Root is a good choice by explaining to me that Root came to him and asked him to explain why drugs should be legal and he really wanted to know the libertarian rationale for it. My friends point was that Root is really trying to understand and embrace the Libertarian reasoning for their positions. It didn’t sell Root to me, as I see the Libertarian Presidential candidate as the voice of the LP for at least through November, do I really want a guy who has only been a Libertarian for a little over a year and needs to study the Libertarian positons on various topics before getting a position out? What if confronted with an issue he is not familiar with? Can he be counted on to respond with a Libertarian answer?
