I could understand why someone might align themselves with Republican
party. I don't think there is anything wrong with 'either' ( I think it
is a shame that we are so limited ) philosophy although there may be
problems with whatever the current interpretation is. If you have a
preference but find that yours has been selectively defined beyond a
threshold you can tolerate by it's members, one option might be to
leave, but wouldn't that make the problem worse? Particularly because
this is a two party system. It seems like real problem with AorB is that
they maintain a surplus of consensus. You can also effectively develop
your interpretation from within - if that is his reason. I don't know. I
know that if 50 years ago, Libetarian and Green stole the spotlight and
became the two parties, then we would have the same exact people in
office right now telling different lies( well, I'm reasonably certain)
with a few exceptions. I suppose that is the question, is Ron Paul an
exception?
