Well, world peace Trumps liberty for me personally, philosophically if we have to make that trade, I will take it.
Too me it's worth it.
And this is the problem the very things that were the strongest drawing cards to Ron Paul were not the same for every person, for some of us liberty had nothing to do with it, although I think it's a good idea and I endorse it as well, it's merely a fringe benefit.
But remember what the attraction was at the start simply has dissipated because Ron or Rand can't do it, they don't hold the power nor can they ever attain it at this point.
This epiphany hit me this election cycle, honor and nobility, only go so far in this political atmosphere.
We need to be realistic and pragmatic, how things might get done, not how we emotionally "need" them to get done from a fantasy purity perspective.
Trump on the other has a legitimate shot now. I guess at this point I am not really trying to convince anybody, but I will vigorously defend my personal perspective.
Trump is a gamble to be sure, but he moves the ball forward on a number of fronts for me, and that is better than Obama, Hillary, McCain or Romney.
