The mindless worship here of Ron Paul is most amusing!
If you really agree with him fine, but it seems a lot of people really know nothing about him. Mostly I hear "he's for The Constitution", which is
about as vague as you can get.
He's a politician, a wheeler dealer just like the rest of 'em. He's great at diverting Federal money to his district. Now that's OK by me,
that's kind of what a Congressman does, but he's got a good PR scam going.
Here's how it works! ( A lot of "conservative" small government types use this).
Take a bill that you know will pass, despite your opposition on" moral "grounds. Add a bunch of pork for your district. Vote NO loudly and very
publicly, bemoaning spending, big government etc.
Hey presto! The bill passes, you get your pork and you get to bad mouth the bill at the same time! Best of both worlds! Texas politics IS Texas
politics after all! It's an old trick, a lot of 'em do it!
Don't believe it about your Sainted Ron?
google "Ron Paul pork", you'll get a nice 80 some page list!
