Liberals don't like the LP's opposition to federal social programs. Conservatives don't like the LP's desire to abolish "morality laws", especially legalizing hard drugs.
It doesn't matter what they like, it's what the People like. I think that if the system was open to actual political competition, the LP would already have much higher gains than it sits now (particularly on the local level) when artificially deprived from participation in the system. I don't know if it's "he takes things further than most people can accept" as much as it is "the major parties and the media portray him as taking things further than most people can accept". Ron Paul doesn't get a fair shake, and you know this.
