I am not impressed with Ron Paul.
There is a responce I've learned that works perfectly for young children and very old people when they end a story that I had to listen to because I
want to be polite. I wanted to use it as he finished his speech, it goes like this.
To Mr. Paul I say this "What if we awarded you Mr. Obvious 2009 and it was true."
When I first started to hear some of the praise for Mr. Paul some time ago I was like "Gotta check this guy out!" and then I did.
Phantom Menace level let down.
Still, I will continue to watch and listen, maybe he will grow into the leader so many hope he can be.
You may consider his messages as "obvious", but I think you are looking at it from only your perspective. Obviously you are here in this forum
because you are politically minded, probably reasonably educated, maybe you have read and understand the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
Please think of this: He is talking to politicians who are either ignorant of the people's rights, or those who just don't care about the people.
Ron Paul does a good job of giving the Constitution a voice. Its all he can do peacefully. Its all that should be necessary, if the other politicians
cared to learn, or cared about whom they represent.
If you are unimpressed by one of the few who stand up for small government, abolition of the Fed, abolition of the IRS, tighter borders, ceasing
spending money of building and maintaining an Empire that will collapse, recognition of States Rights, following The Constitution... I must ask what
politician impress you?
