Why Democrats Should Support Ron Paul

Disgusting. Absolutely disgusting.

Courting Democrats to vote republican?

I guess if he loses the nomination, the GOP should welcome their support for thier ultimate nominee.

I doubt that would be the case.

It's one thing to target independents, but solicit Democrats to disrupt the selection process of the GOP nominee, disgusting.

I hope Ron Paul didn't approve that message.

Disgusting? Are you aware that "Republican" and "Democrat" are not black and white things? If the last 6 years has taught us anything, it's that party titles don't mean sticking to stated policies, tenets, beliefs, etc... Republicans have not been fiscally conservative, nor for small government, nor for states' rights.
Not only are parties shifting over time, but within parties there is a continuum of views.
Perhaps there is someone (Lieberman?), or could be someone, who is a Democrat that you would support before one of the 10 Repubs running for Pres.?
I've heard of many Republicans who live in foregone conclusion Dem. districts (Keith Ellison's in MN, for example) who go to Dem. primaries to alter the outcomes more to their liking. Maybe you know about this?
