DENVER (AP) — A political generation ago, the West signaled the nation's rightward swing, from the emergence of Ronald Reagan to the success of tax-limitation ballot measures in California and Colorado.

Now, however, the fabled expanse of deserts, jagged peaks, and emerald coastlines is trending in a different direction.

    Many of the positions mentioned are not those of democrats either, they are Libertarian. Ron Paul attracted support from members of both parties, or those that leaned either way. Much of it was from young voters. If the GOP hadn't been terrified of this movement and given it the boot they could have won the election. Of course it wouldn't be the same party anymore and many of us would argue that would be for the best.

    The sad reality is that Ronald Reagan would not be welcomed in today's GOP. Though they have used him as their favorite son, seen him through the lens of their revisionist glasses; he would be one of the first targets of their Tea Party induced rage and bile.
