"I'm not one [of those] people who votes for something then writes to the government to ask them to send us money. I did not request any stimulus money," the congressman answered.
"I didn't recall the letters earlier. But they should have been handled differently, and I take responsibility for that.

Alright. Ron Paul sure has a consistent message. I have never denied that. I do have a lot of problems with his crazy ideology, but my opinions on those views are all on various different threads in the ATS databases.
Paul Ryan has been saying these things since before most of America knew who he was!!!! Remind you of anyone?
"Our debt is out of control. What was a fiscal challenge is now a fiscal crisis. We cannot deny it; instead we must, as Americans, confront it responsibly. And that is exactly what Republicans pledge to do."
"I Don't Consult Polls to Tell Me What My Principles Are or Policies Should Be"
"Exploiting people's emotions of fear, envy and anxiety is not hope, it's not change, it's partisanship. We don't need partisanship. We don't need demagoguery. We need solutions."
"Borrowing and spending is not the way to prosperity."
"A free economy and strong communities honor the dignity of every person, rewarding effort with justice, promoting upward mobility, and building solidarity among citizens."

It really does make one wonder if Romney was shooting for a two-fer or a bit of a psy op when he picked Ryan...
Paul Ryan/Ron Paul.
Many similar ideas in a much more appealing/marketable package, minus the kooky.
I wonder if he'll get votes from hapless voters simply not paying attention? Or will they go crazy for him?
What astounds me is that people think Ron Paul's views are Kooky and Crazy as another poster in here put it - at all.
If you people would study history and the hows and whys this country was formed, you'd see that Ron Paul's views are not kooky or crazy at all but are 100 % in keeping with the true Republic this country was formed to be.
It's everyone else who has kooky and crazy ideas trying to take this Republic away from We The People. So many grossly uneducated people on here that just don't get it. Why are you people so adamant to defy the Republic and the principles for which it stands? Just what country do you think you are in? Obviously, you have no clue where you live.
P.S. kosmicjack, This wasn't directly directed at you. You just helped remind me that lots of people think Ron Paul's ideas are crazy.. I've read that many times on ATS.edit on 12-8-2012 by JohnPhoenix because: addition
