Exactly...I would love to have a true conservative like Paul...but the defense issue and the liberal drug ideas of his make me very uneasy. Now
hopefully if his time is not now his son will step up in the future. As long as O is out in 2012, I guess anyone is better than him for another 4
With all do consideration, Ron Paul's opinions on controlled substances is very conservative. Both his personnel beliefs, as well as his opinions of
governance both stay true to conservative values.
Personally, between you and me, it is a very Marxist, un-conservative thing to try and use force to control what another person does that you
Rep. Ron Paul is personally against the usage of controlled substances as a Doctor(and as well a human being). But he recognizes how tyrannical your
mind set is in regards to this issue and will not engage in such evil.
The thing is, your a sheep. Most people are sheep, heck most politicians are sheep, most CEO's etc.
People who are worried about ending the war on drugs(which seems fixated on just one thing really to protect several industries) because of the
supposed legalization of the "hard stuff", are dumb.

The problem is, you aren't a conservative to begin with. So you and those like you, try to re-brand what Conservatism is to make yourselves feel

Like an alcoholic that knows he or she needs to put the bottle down, you know in your heart that it isn't right to use force against others for the
sake of lording over them. You need to put the Marxism down.
Continuing to engage in dialogue as you have is dishonest. Your deceiving not only yourself, but anyone you engage intellectual discourse with.
