The key to uniting Republicans & Democrats is to embrace Liberty. Both parties have enough in common with libertarian beliefs, that somebody like Ron Paul could unite non-statist voters and create a victory over Establishmentarian President, Barack Obama.
Ron Paul is inspiring Democrats to switch their party for one election! They want Obama defeated, and not to be replaced with another Establishment-backed president who will do the same things (that we all should oppose):
I'm telling you guys, focusing on the undeniable hypocrisy of Warlord Obama is they key to his defeat. You can debate economics all day long with ignorant people and not get anywhere. However, you can illuminate the pro-war agenda of Obama in five minutes for anybody. You can show his expansion of DHS, TSA, wiretapping, unlimited detentions, on and on. You can easily display the costs of war and the toll on our freedom.
1) conduct wars against countries that did not threaten us (e.g. Iraq, Libya)
2) oversee large financial benefits to companies with which those in his administration were close (e.g. Halliburton, Goldman Sachs),
3) establish a legal framework for riding roughshod over the liberties of private individuals who are not suspected of crime (e.g. Patriot Act),
4) establish a massive federal apparatus to carry out such intrusions on innocent Americans in what is becoming a police state (e.g. domestic wiretapping, TSA etc... )
If you want to defeat Obama, don't send another war-waging candidate to compete against him. Obama won because he acted like he was going to end the wars. That message still resounds with people, even though Obama failed to deliver. Give the voters a real choice on foreign policy and domestic liberty -- and Obama will be beaten.
