We all know the game is rigged, yet people still stroll up to that feeding bottle in the corner of the rat cage every four years to get their dose of "freedom juice", knowing all the while that the $h!t they're drinking is a placebo.

You love Paul? Who wouldn't? He does have some good ideas.
However; at the end of the day, do you think he's going to have any more power than any of the past couple of clowns that have occupied that office? The POTUS is at the mercy of Congress, and Congress is at the mercy of their investors (Banks, Big Oil, and various other mega-corps). The system, as I said before, is the problem. The system you're trying to maintain for the sake of your "standard of living."


I agree. People should revolt. But there are too many limp wristed liberals for that to happen.

I think Paul is the only semi realistic hope for improvment in the near future so I support him.

As a libertarian socialist/anarchist I am with you. I dont really think Paul can win but Imhoping that when he doesnt his supporters become more radical.


You are a libertarian socialist/anarchist that hates liberals in the name of Ron Paul so that they will view themselves as being opposed to Ron Paul...and you want people to think that Ron Paul supporters are radical revolutionaries?

Everything you are saying seems designed to turn people away from him, at a time when he needs the left to embrace him as the right has decided to push him out.

What some people see as 'moving forward' makes me wonder what goal they are looking at.

Destroying the world? Total dehumanization? What?


I think environmentalists are like luddites. Like machine breakers.

Moving forward is being able to keep your house warm or cool without it costing a fortune for a start.


Luddites are ones that scorn progress
such as investing and researching new power sources (omg, green energy).
I see environmentalists and technological progressionists walk hand in hand. progress is not returning to the dawning of the industrial age with cities choking with carbon smog and 10 miles to the gallon automobiles.

You, sir, are a prime example of a luddite.
I fancy myself a transhumanist personally (its a mindset..google it). I see technology becoming more and more powerful, and tempered with environmental concerns. You seem to favor politics of big oil and a stamping out of innovation towards new power sources.

Check out some my my history threads and weigh in if you so desire:

Should Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Humans recieve equal rights?
Printable antenna harvest ambient energy. Tesla quirks an eyebrow

No? too techie and nerdish? How about this one then:
Conservatives: How do you propose we colonize space?

Point is, I see the conservative, and especially the Ron Paul type mindset, to be the exact opposite towards really big leaps in technological progression
The internet wasn't invented by some guy in a basement, it was a massive project by the federal government. Space exploration is only done by governments, etc..

Bah, nevermind..go eat some freedom fries and forget you made this thread.

I don't dislike many of Pauls stands...some I am very much favoring..some are interesting, and some are disastrous as I said..but its all a moot point considering he won't be in the election.


I think the disastous are not that at all. Like how you dont agree with his foriegn policy. What dont you agree with? He wants to stop policing the world and wasting money on war. Sounds good to me. I am against American Imperialism. I also likethat he will try to stop the IMF from propping up failing capitalist government to the detriment of their people.

And I didnt really mean the gay marraige thing. But I meant that his stance on taxpayers paying for en vougue leftist causes like AIDS patients is used to say he is anti-gay. His stance does not reflect that at all,he is saying that as a libertarian he is against the taxpayer forking out for illness that is contracted through lifestyle choices. He is libertarian not anti-gay.

I dont think its about left or right.

You can be a leftist conservative. Kind of

I know Paul wont win the gop. And to me he isnt really a republican.

I think people should turn away from the duoploy.

Ron Paul as an independant should be something everyone can vote for.

I really don't like debating with someone whom clearly has a reading disability through text
I said this:

Ya, I know him..like his foreign policys, like some of his domestic policys, and some are epic fail disasters.

I -like- his foreign policies. like means that I agree with..favor...am all for.



I am against American Imperialism. I also likethat he will try to stop the IMF from propping up failing capitalist government to the detriment of their people.

That is a complex subject that requires specialists to discuss. I do not pretend to know much about nuclear physics (some, not a lot..), and I know even less about our monitary system and its seemingly fiat economy..I mean, I understand the basic concepts, and how it is entangled into the global economy. I however am not silly enough to think all we have to do is kick the legs from it and everything will be perfect. like saying if a person has a brain tumor, all we have to do is reach in and grab the tumor with some salad tongs and voila, everything fixed.

Unless you can show me some higher education degrees in finance, then you are in the same boat I am..both listening to some politician suggesting which salad tong to use to rip out what he deems is an issue.

I am ultimately neutral on that based on not enough education.




And I didnt really mean the gay marraige thing. But I meant that his stance on taxpayers paying for en vougue leftist causes like AIDS patients is used to say he is anti-gay. His stance does not reflect that at all,he is saying that as a libertarian he is against the taxpayer forking out for illness that is contracted through lifestyle choices. He is libertarian not anti-gay.


AIDS is a leftist cause? huh?
He is anti-gay...personally. His policys however are not..and I don't care what sort of views he has on gays. Its small minded, but he is a old man from a different time when such things were black and white. I don't fault him, nor my granny, for their old school racist viewpoints. meh..they were programmed different.

But as far as lifestyle choices. lifestyle choices meaning what? Would he be supportive of it if its a hemophiliac? if it was through straight sex?
What about heart attacks? those are caused by cheeseburgers and smoking..
What about skin cancer..that lifestyle of suntanning is a choice
What about..etc. Basically, every single issue we have is from some lifestyle choice, be it failing eyesight because of too much reading, Aids through t3d sex, high cholestrol from pizza love, etc.

If he is targetting just AIDS, then guess what...that is very much an anti-gay stance. All or nothing.

Im not for corporatists just because I am against environmentalsts.

Environmentalists feed the corporatists. They use you,hijack your causes,give you no gain,it is at the great expense of the rest of us and yet envirotards cheer?

Environmentalists are the corporatists greatest friends.

I don't think so. I think the evil rich bastards taking advantage of hippie do gooders has destroyed the world. No sense in hating on hippies, they tried, and they generally know more than the average population who the real problem is. I actually know a lot of rainbow children (real hardcore hippies) that are RP supporters to the end.

It isnt. If leftists were into junkee rights then he would be accused of being ant-junkee.

He is libertarian not anti-gay.

Im sure ther are many hippies that support him. And gay people. They should.

He will do more for them than obama.

I dont think all hippies suck. Just most.

I will give you that most hippie music today sucks (..phish bleh), and there are pseudo hippies that suck. Those I think are more into hippie chic though. Actual hippies usually don't both anyone, actually they try to stay off the grid as much as possible. A lot of the green initiatives are put forth not by hippies, but by idiot liberals (i for the most part AM a liberal, I still know then when I see them) that get concerned about an idea and then let the government swoop in with an answer that has an obvious ulterior motive.

If you target a group because you disapprove of their lifestyle, then you are against, or anti, that group.

You are suggesting aids is a disease based off a lifestyle choice (being gay). that makes him anti-gay by the very definition.
Junkies...what types? alcoholics? mary smokers? (he is pro-legalization btw..why many of the kids like him),

Actually, I am stepping out of this thread. its becoming too surreal and scattered to even try to follow. Your a Ron Paul fan...congrats. incidently, Ron Paul is super uber democrat in regards to his foreign policy ideals...and some of his domestic ideas are also liberal (such as legalize it, let women go into "massage' businesses, etc)...so, arguably he is far more democratic than republican if you demand shoving him into a two party system. Your bigger threat to him is Romney/Gingrich types moreso than Obama. If Paul ran, he could very much challenge Obama...but he is running as a republican..therefore your true enemy is the GOP by 1000%

Them damn neocons are the ruiners for your Ron Paul utopia.
