I see you're missing Hugo Chavez. Chavez controlled market prices like you are proposing in Venezuela. You identify with Marxist principles more than you're letting on in here. You want to do away with the idea of Free Market.

American gas prices is generally set by Arabs from OPEC, more than half the Oil found in America is shipped to foreign countries for sale, to compete with the Arabs's pricing at pricing the Arabs and Venezuela set.

I thought paul was a libertarian but he just introduced a very weird bill that would ban abortions. What a total hypocrite. He is certainly no libertarian.
Ron Paul is no libertarian. He is another establishment phony conservative Republican pretending to be anti-government.

You can't be a libertarian and be for the complete banning of abortion.

You can't be a libertarian and be for the Neo-Con foreign policy
The first issue would represent the placing of the Gov't in between a woman and her doctor, dictating which options she should have. A large increase in Gov't power.
The second issue denies a specific group of people equal standing before their Gov't. It is a basic libertarian principle. That all men are created equal. And thus until convicted of a crime or found to be mentally incompetent all men should be equal in the eyes of their Gov't.
The Neo-Cons will never go along with a more reserved role in the world.
These are the fault line on which your party will split because on these issues one side will prevail and one side will have to swallow it's ideals for the sake of the party.
Spoil sport. In the words of Paul Lyin, "You have to compromise your principles in order to preserve them". Rmoney got as many votes as he did because a lot of Libertarians VOTED for him.

Libertarians did NOT vote for the Libertarian candidate in any large numbers. They are all de facto loser REPUBLICANS.

Well lets start by opening up the whole nation to drilling. All of those federal lands should be set free for the people to enjoy its resources. Then the price of gas will go down to less then 2 dollars.

Geez, what a whiner! Oil companies already have leases that they aren't even using. That said, if this were a dictatorship, you would have your way, but it's not. In our country, you would need to be elected by We the People to do something like that. My guess is that you wouldn't even be elected dogcatcher. So quit your whining and pay for the gas or get a vehicle that uses less, better yet an alternative.

If gas were $2 a gallon, the whiners would want it for $1 a gallon. What a bunch of ungrateful whiny crybabies.

I saw whining when all of the gays were suffering from aids and they wanted help. Watching them cry and whine was something to remember. Maybe we shouldn't have spent the tens of billions of dollars on research and the hundreds of billions of dollars up to now to keep HIV people alive. Whining biatches. Its like we are dictatorship as most people back then did not want what we ended up doing. We the people of course become Us the elitist elected. As the world government people continue our road to mediocrity.

You are a sick-o, mentally. Sorry, to pop your bubble, but we are NOT a dictatorship. You are just a bitter whiny sore-loser. I'd rather have our government cure the sick than enable your dirty oil addiction. Then again, WWJD?

High gas prices are here to stay. Drilling for oil is expensive and risky. No oil and gas company is going to drill in deepwater or shale if all they are getting is a $1/gallon return.

We knew what he would do.But people like you keep repeating the same mistakes. So the real question is...WWHD?(Hitler). I use the same analogies you use. Just in a different context. Without that oil addiction the population would be in genocide mode with images of the road warrior for what was left. Your the real sicko. True story...

Did you grow up in la la land? You come back in another thread with a bankster retort with the usual church hate and think that everything else is beautiful. Government is huge. There is massive corruption. Somehow cleaning it up is a no no. Also, on the banks and the federal reserve, Dems are in power. Have been for six years. The media, all of it can spend time tearing each other apart and destroying individuals, but they can't spend time drilling this into the peoples skulls on what they are doing. Bringing up all the names of elite people living off of the peons. Where is that at? All of the programs we have on television. Their ore interested in the flaws of a person not in their political faction and marked for destruction then other things.

True
A little bit of flexibility is a must.
I agree with the rest as well

Do you believe that in the future when the GOP presents someone (Jeb Bush or Sanitarium ?) who is no libertarian, that they will defect in larger numbers?

Obedient to the Commander-in-Chief, President Obammy, who ordered them to kill Bin Laden, unlike the shrub who let his buddy Bin Laden's family go home rather than waterboarding them.

The GOP has cancer and is dying on it's own.
