A better word for Ron Paul supporters is sheep. That’s right. The same insult you launch at anyone who opposes your views is quite appropriate to describe your cult. This Cult dosn't know how to deal with critisism, when talking about their Guru. you are imediatley Acused of being payed for or Biased...
Ron Paul is seductive on his non-adventurism in overseas entanglements and sane drug policy but take a look at the history of Pinochet's Chile--that's what he wants to do here. 50% unemployment. A huge drop in people with social security (because they privatized it). No department of education. etc. Ron Paul is great where he is, throwing zingers at Republican conventions, but if you vote for him, you're throwing away your vote because he'll never be elected president (for good reason) and if by some strange miracle he does get elected, you won't like what he will do...The supporters of raun paul in my opinion are no different then the supporters of Hitler in 1932, or the Usfull Idiots Stalin used and threw away like a napkin.

Too bad they will be to drunk or high to vote come election day...seriously I would say more than half only support him due to his open drug stance, the rest might care about foreign policy and war but that is just my opinion.
If you still think he will get the GOP nod YOUR FREAKING DREAMING...if he runs as an independent he will lose BADLY...but its his right to run regardless of the consequences of 4 more years of Obama.
You RP fanatics are no different than the Obama fanatics...he will gut the Military 100 times worse than Obama which means laying off a good portion of our Active duty and reserves...under RP I believe this country will see misery for 5-10 years similar to the great depression with all the radical changes he THINKS he can make. Unemployment will shoot up overnight. Our friends and allies around the world will laugh at us, OPEC will probably dump the dollar, we will lose any global strength we had an be turned into a 3rd class country.
More than 1.4 million people serve in the active Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force, and more than 1.2 million serve etc. Let not forget about defense contractors and all the tech and inventions that come out of the military...
You cannot stop and turn a Aircraft carrier on a dime which is precisely what RP wants to do...
