That's actually the premise of the thread, and the point of Ron Paul's campaign. He's bringing in new voters of every demographic and reshaping the party in the process.

"You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. Up to man's age-old dream – the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order – or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism." -Ronald Reagan
