It's the closest thing to a "conservative platform" there is.
He supports discontinuing foreign aid, bringing home ALL of the troops not currently in the country, his idea of a "foreign policy" is that we can't treat one nation superior to another (i.e. Israel/Palestine, Serbia/Kosovo), we shouldn't be an ally of few, but an unbiased observer of all. He supports civil unions across the board for both opposite-sex and same-sex couples. He is against the War on Drugs...when most other politicians were voting yes to pay-raises, and other crippling legislation...he was consistently voting no.
You can call him an idiosyncratic paleolibertarian (the only part I agree with you on is libertarian), but he's the best option at this point if we wish to live in a country that's going to be worth living in.
You want a real conservative? Ron Paul. All these other sideshow freaks you keep clamoring about like Jindal is just a bunch of tripe to take attention off how much both party's are exactly alike.
Not actually a Republican, so I can't speak for anyone else... but Ron Paul is an idiosyncratic paleolibertarian. Let's be real. Nothing wrong with that, when he's not on about the Trilateral Commission he's pretty good, but "conservative" in the United States is not the same thing as Ron Paul's platform.[/quote]
