Now that’s funny –and a little scary, that you said that! But there’s no need for apologies of any sort on your part. Because, now that I think about it, your first impression was perfectly sensible (NOT Sarcasm): You are so used to seeing (as I am) people mooing “change”, for example, that it does become hard to distinguish the discontented moo with sarcasm in the herd. I have encountered the same problem myself. Again, it partly illustrates my point, thank you much for this help. This dumbing down makes it hard to express an original or “difficult” opinion without getting stampeded by the herd. That’s what happened to Paul. But with sarcasm, there’s always a bit of truth in it. In one sense, as a rational man, he perhaps should have glitzed his image a little. To think that he could get by on logic and hard-medicine was a huge mistake in his calculations.
My advice; practice your sarcasm well my friend. If things keep up, as they are, we may really have to start mooing – even with sarcasm – just to blend in and survive.

I think we're in the same boat as Dr. Paul in that we have to bend our own beliefs slightly in order to get along peacefully with those around us.

sheesh, so because he wasn't dashingly handsome and a fancy speechgiver, you sold out on what you stand for for the more "socially" appealing candidate?
this mentality scares me more than the threat of the terrorism.
What scares me is you think this is not the norm...
Sparkles and shiny is how the west votes... forget ethics and morals...

Look, here it is in a nutshell.
The people you want in politics are honest, caring individuals who want what's best for everyone, not just their party. Those people stay away from politics because they know they are in the minority and don't want anything to do with such corrupt men and women. Thus, the people you want in politics will never be in politics.
