GOP: Ron Paul is impeding Republican progress

I wish somebody could explain to me why Ron Paul identifies as a Republican. Can’t he compete on his own as an independent? Why do his supporters continually torpedo the mainstream Republican caucuses?

There’s no way Paul can win the GOP nomination. Why, then, does his group continue to impede the progress of the Republican Party in our state? From what I’ve witnessed so far, the Paul supporters are the most obnoxious, disruptive and rude people at a caucus.

My personal opinion is that they must be trying to re-elect Barack Obama, or they’re all Occupy members in disguise. Either way, the Ron Paul supporters in this area certainly don’t adhere to Republican principles.
