Too bad, says the head of the Lincoln Institute, Ron is not a warmonger like Barry (or Abe).
Of course, Barry--the one time I voted: what a mistake--was not Barry either. He was the typical stato-Republican before 1960 and after 1964, and always chillingly pro-death right right across the board: war, capital punishment, abortion. I am not sure about euthanasia, but I believe he was in favor of that too, at least later on. But from 1960 to 1964, he pretended to be a domestic libertarian, helped along by Brent Bozell's great book, Conscience of a Conservative. Those were never Barry's views, however. It was all a political trick. Ron, on the other hand, is the real deal. The only similarity is that Ron, too, can be the nominee.
