You poor, deluded soul. Ron Paul supports, primarily, the Constitution - something no other candidate is doing.

Right, I understand. Its just trendy on ATS, and the internet in general, to claim that Paul was slighted at every chance. Probably for sympathy, like you said. Likely for stars on this site though.
Fortunately, Paul was never taken seriously by the masses to begin with. People just don't want him. His hate of the poor and his isolationist policies may be the culprit. Not to mention his awkwardness on stage does not scream "Leader!".
I do find it a bit funny that most of the misdirection about Paul comes from his supporters themselves.
We're in total agreement there... I do think that many new-ish voters and many ignorant voters don't have a clue what he stands for... they just say "liberty" and "constitution" a lot and think everyone else should just shut up... or admit they want to destroy America.
I agree... my personal distaste for his ridiculous policies aside, if I hear one more Paul supporter claim Paul's reading of the constitutional is "obviously" the only correct one my head may explode
But even if his supporters were less awful (and ATS gets a disproportional high percentage of Paultards I think) I still wouldn't support his policies... as they range from ridiculous to dangerous...
