Washington (CNN) -- Texas congressman Ron Paul now leads among Iowa Republicans and has tied Newt Gingrich for second in New Hampshire. Republican
conservatives have cycled through a series of "Not Mitts." Is it now Paul's turn? Paul's core following has been small but fervid. However, Paul now
is gaining a larger following, especially among younger voters attracted by his message of drug legalization and his comprehensive -- if utterly
wrong-headed -- explanation of the country's economic crisis.
So, I see this as a way for CNN to say basically "you guys are nothing but drug addicts who know nothing about the economy and how it works."
I for one am not into drugs at all, and support Dr. Paul's idea of leaving it up to the states to decide. No where does it say he supports drug use,
just the right of the state to decide.
Granted we may not know everything about the economy and how it works, but obviously no one else does either. Fact is, when you get into a situation
that even mathematicians can't even figure out how the numbers work, how can you say anyone understands it. When you have mathematics that don't add
up no matter what, you have three reasons why. One, missing money, two hidden money, or three impossible math for the purpose of not being able to
Dr. Paul just wants to streamline this and make it so we will be able to hold our government accountable. If "We the people" don't have a way to
understand the math, how is it possible to hold our government accountable for spending.
I am sick and tired of misquotes and other means by the media to discredit Dr. Paul, when clearly they themselves know nothing about US history or our
Constitution. That or are being paid to do so. Probably both.
Unexpectedly, young voters seem also to appreciate Paul's grandfatherly anti-charisma: his self-presentation as a good-natured old codger, charmingly
baffled by the modern world. The ill-fitting suits, the quavering voice and the slack-jawed laugh all support the image of an anti-politician, the
lone voice of integrity in a sullied word.
The article goes on to say how Dr. Paul is a racist and lier and blah blah blah.......
And these are the same people giving newt a pass for multiple affairs and proven lies and illegal deals, and Rick Perry a pass on him being a
"racist". Yes they talked about it, but not like this.
