We received several responses to the points I made in my article from yesterday suggesting I could support a Republican ticket of Jim DeMint and Ron Paul in 2012.
As expected many of my fellow liberty-lovers disagreed with the notion of supporting DeMint. I was even called a neo-con. I think that was a first for me since I started Liberty Maven in 2007. Then again I probably was called a neo-con for supporting the Libertarian ticket of Bob Barr and Wayne Root in 2008 (once Ron Paul dropped out) by some, but I forget.
Given the reaction I thought this may be a good time to run the first ever Liberty Maven unscientific poll. Let your vote count below. The choices assume that DeMint and Paul have won the GOP nomination to go against Obama and Biden in the general election. If neither of those choices work for you I’ve also included some 3rd party options for protest or principle.
