Well, I was going to respond to the OP, but then I saw the one above and figure I'll respond to that one. The comment that RP supporters are like
I support Ron Paul for one simple reason, he follows the Libertarian edict: Less Government, More Liberty. I will agree that it is easy to be
cynical. If you are anywhere near as old as I am (late 20's), we've never seen that message put into practice. I suppose you might hear a lot of
regurgitation, or as I might say it, re-stating the facts. You can call it regurgitation, that certainly sounds more derogatory and insulting.
Here's another fact for you, you can add it to facts you've probably heard a thousand times...
Ron Paul was a doctor before running for Congress.
As for the OP, I guess I don't understand your sensibility here. If you took all candidates running for president (and re-running for) and looked at
their voting records, their speeches, and their actions, you would find that none are perfect. But you would find, in a homily Congressman from
Texas, a basis in his actions that reflect a simple edict: Less Government, More personal liberty. He's for legalizing drugs. Why? It's YOUR
body, do what you want with it. It's very attractive.
In a paranoid world, could Ron Paul have just been acting, talking, voting, and even practiced medicine prior... all just to run for President of the
United States in 2012 so he could win in a landslide on a message fiscal sensibility and personal liberties and freedoms, all just to turn around and
be a globalist stooge after all these years?
Well, you make a VERY interesting argument, friend. My only question, is are you voting for Obama again because he's been acting like a Wall Street,
globalist run stooge for the last four years so that in his second, "let it all hang out" term, he could do a 180 and abolish the Patriot Act and
bring back Glass Steagall?
Star and Flag to you, my friend, for imagination.
