Ron Paul has fooled a lot of liberals lately. They think that because he is anti-war, that it makes him a liberal. The problem is, Ron Paul is not even close to being a liberal.

Since 2010, the internet and the media have been filled with threats to sit out 2012, threats to primary the President or even to turn to a third party. Progressives are angry…and rightfully so.
