The Ron Paul “Revolution,” an Extreme Rightwing Threat

Debating Revolution, Individual Liberty, States' Rights, and Ron Paul
Steven Argue writes, "For the most part the Iowa caucuses were business as usual for the Democrat and Republican parties. Among the Democrats, 'anti-war' and 'pro-single payer health care' Democrat Dennis Kucinich put his support behind pro-war, anti-single payer health care Barack Obama.
