Well... uh.... you mentioned now, I can't get too excited. I'm glad there's been some economic changes and he's been a cheerleader for the market. I don't think things are as good as they claim... because labor participation rate has not improved and uh half the people don't get counted so there's still a lot of problems. But there has been there has been progress. But, if you look at the size and scope of government. no improvement whatsoever. There's still a lot of spying going on more than ever before.... more money spent on militarism and not on national defense. He could be a good Democrat if he's going to spend but that tends to be the case.... every Republican tend to like to spent it their way. When I was there it was always "do we get to write the checks or do you get to write the checks?" "We have our friends and you have your friends"... because look at the Reagan administration.... he truly didn't turn out to be a fiscal conservative....
..he's going to continue to be a big spender and he's not going to worry about deficits and debt as I do.

So he's acting like a democrat?
Paul wasn't too amused with his son's decision to support the nomination of Mike Pompeo

Oh I still believe Ron Paul is a racist. I posted a number of threads about his newsletters and voting record. I also don't agree with many of his stances, including his economic stances, I would never support him politically. With that said, Paul has always had a large following especially on here. Many of his supporters backed him and referred to him when it came to war, survellience state etc. His large supporter base has not withered away to becoming Trump supporters, which I kind of feel bad for him over. It means Paul was just used as a partisan puppet to push a political agenda. Now that the orange one is in power, will rules need not apply anymore.
It's all very interesting.
