This decision by Ron Paul makes a mockery of his claims to be a libertarian, small Government candidate.
He pretends to want to keep the Government's noses out of people's business but really with Ron Paul it's financial liberty only. The Constitution Party is a states rights party, and a very conservative one at that. That's not supporting true freedom, it's just an irrational hatred of the federal Government as opposed to sensible support of small Government across the board be it local, state or federal.
Ron Paul's dislike of personal freedom will fit well with his new Constitution Party buddies.
