Number one. Ron Paul is a national disgrace and his presence in the GOP is disturbing. His prominence in the Tea Party is a debatable point. His son likely has the larger role. He is not the sum of the Tea Party. His acceptance in both the Tea Party and the GOP is an abomination to the principle we hold sacred.
Number Two Political Parties should be open to anyone and the voters should decide.
No in reality the Paul brigade has welcome entryist elements that make a mockery of the GOP principles. I signed on to the party of Reagan was the father of the big tent and welcomed folks into the light. The notion of my party allowing Paul's band of Truthers, White power nuts and anti semites makes a mockery of all things Republican.
Number Three what you witnessed from Joe Conservative was typical Paulist anti semitism. Questioning the patriotism and loyalty of a federal Officer merely because they are a Jew is old school anti semitism.
