Looking back on what I've seen amongst politicians throughout my life, I'd say that the one thing that separates Dr. Paul from the rest of the "puppets" is that he has only flip-flopped ONCE! ~and that was on the issue of the death penalty!
Can you say that about any other candidate? Can you say that any of them don't have a history of changing stances on issues right after they received a large contribution from some powerful corporation?
Answer that for me, and I will answer more fully why "Crazy Uncle Ron" isn't "just another puppet"...
Edit to add: both your A) and B) questions were rooted in an idea that we don't have the ability to actually elect our officials in this country. While that certainly might be the case, I hope that isn't true, as our only option then would be violent revolution. Nobody here wants to see that.edit on 5-1-2012 by Q:1984A:1776 because: (no reason given)
