Excerpt:Â Iâ€™ve been writing columns for a few years now, so Iâ€™ve had the opportunity to see patterns when they look me square in the face and, based on my recent encounters with Ron Paul supporters, patterns have begun to emerge. When you look at some of the pictures of Ron Paul supporters, you see young and old alike, but you also see the peace signs, the word â€œloveâ€ reversed in the word â€œrevolutionâ€. What one clearly sees is a bunch of disenfranchised liberals who assume theyâ€™ve found a welcoming new home.
Theyâ€™ve clearly identified with the anti-war message of Dr. Paul. Obviously, these people feel betrayed by the Democrats with whom they voted for in 2006 after being promised an end to the Iraq War. Democrats clearly have been unable to make good on their many promises. While thatâ€™s not news to real Republicans, the anti-war left has been left dismayed, betrayed, and rudderless.
