But I Thought Ron Paul Was the Candidate of Big Business by Thomas E. Woods, Jr.
As much as Michelle Bachmann, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum to a certain extent claimed to be the Reagan Conservative. Running for President in 2012, the GOP for the most part didn't have that person, Representative Bachmann and Senator Santorum. Were the Big Government Republicans, Mitt Romney was the Northeastern Republican, even though he tried to play to Neoconservatives. The closest the GOP had to a Reagan Republican would've been Ron Paul, when it comes to both economic and social freedom. Even though Representative Paul isn't a Reagan Conservative on foreign policy, more of an isolationist but he. Was the closest thing the GOP had to Ron Reagan in 2012 and the GOP pushed him aside like a piece of garbage. Even though he was really the only Republican running who has any appeal to non traditional Republicans, young people. Who see the Republican party as intolerant.
