"The Smearing Of Ron Paul" - Excellent Piece By Andrew Sullivan!!

Andrew concludes with:

"Thing is, [the smearing of Ron Paul] it’s not working, this is taking on a life of its own, and it’s an incredible political adventure in the making. Sometimes I feel like I’m fighting with a modern William Wallace against the forces of tyranny. It’s exhilarating, and addictive. When Ron Paul is eventually defeated, (or killed, if he gets too close), this thing he tapped into will continue on. We’re already talking about the future. People are being inspired on a massive scale. Young adults I’ve encountered are already floating ideas of running for local or state office as Ron Paul Republicans. Children of the 80’s are living “Goldwater Redux”. This should be a positive development for anyone who calls themselves conservative. Nevertheless, it isn’t—we get more hostility from Neocons than from the Left. When can we all admit these people were never conservatives to begin with, just carpet-baggers from LBJ’s Guns and Butter Brigade? I really think its time to hang these neo- Jacobins and Christian Theocrats out to dry, and pick up the mantle of the American Experiment. No one else seems to be using it."
