Passing budget bills to "keep the government working" is only passing budget increases to what is already in the budget. It's that mentality that continues to increase national debt.

This line of thought is defeatist. Ron Paul followers want to change the things work but they refuse to get involved because they see the system as broken. You can't say the system is fixed when you focus on one example that has a very jaded and disillusioned base.

There would be no reason to assassinate them since they would get absolutely nothing done for anyone to worry about. A Paul presidency would have been the most unproductive in the history of our country.
All his plans would not pass Congress and he would veto anything they passed. It would be four years of nothing but a stalemate with each side blaming the other. At least now we can manage to get just enough done to keep the country running but all that would stop if Paul was President.
This country needs legislation passed, even if its bad, to even function at a basic level. Paul does not understand that.
