As LRC’s own Jim Ostrowski has argued on several occasions, the Republicans will lose the 2008 presidential election if they nominate anyone but Ron Paul.

In 2006, libertarians who were fed up with Republican excess either threw their support behind the Democrats or stayed home on Election Day, resulting in a wholesale victory for the Democratic Party as it took over both houses of Congress and a majority of governorships and state legislatures from the GOP.

There’s no reason to expect libertarian-minded voters to play any less significant a role in the outcome this year, especially when they have a candidate in Ron Paul who is continuing to gain momentum for two important reasons: 1) libertarians finally have a candidate running on a major ticket who represents many of their views, and 2) there is no ideological difference between any of the leading Democrats or Republicans when it comes to the federal government – they all believe in the virtue of the paternalistic, centralized state; they merely differ in how it should run our lives.
