I can offer only half-hearted support for your position. Half-hearted, but sincerely held (if that's not a contradiction). I too, note the
abundance of Ron Paul threads. Not being tremendously interested in the race right now, I just sample now and then. They don't bother me as they
seem to bother you.
What I see in the threads are:
Ron Paul is wonderful.
The polls show Ron Paul is the people's choice.
The media manipulate the polls and everything else to make him look bad.
Only sheeple are fooled by the media.
True or not, it's hard for me to get into a conversation using those as building blocks, and it does get a little monotonous.
My large problem is strictly emotional. A goodly number of Rep. Paul's supporters sound identical to the supporters of OWS. What I pointed out
above applies equally well to OWS. I take that back, OWS is also talking about their future plans, which I don't see in Ron Paul's supporters.
In short, I don't know why, but his supporters are beginning to frighten me a little. (Actually, I do know why, but why start a bigger fight?)
