    You forgot one.

    I'm not crazy, nor am I voting for a crazy old bastard who is UNELECTABLE and even if he were to win, who could not govern worth a damn because he's a libertarian in a democrat/republican dichotomy.

    Thank you for that perfect illustration of what points 22 and 23 would look like in practice.

    Funny how points 22 and 23 make it impossible to criticize Ron Paul.

    22 and 23 state that anything said about Ron Paul, by anyone other than Ron Paul is a lie.
    That's not an argument. That's a way of HIDING all the STUPID shit he's said over the years.

    I mean when the media reports that white supremacists are working on his campaign, we shouldn't believe it huh?
    When the media brings up old racist newsletters, written in first person and signed by the Grand Poobah of the Ronulans himself, we shouldn't believe it?
    When his idiot son refuses to cooperate with airport security and Ron says he was "detained" we shouldn't believe the media?

    The problem isn't that Ron Paul is so great and people just don't recognize it.
    The problem is that Ron Paul is a fucking idealist who stands ZERO chance of implementing ANY of his ideas in a practical sense because he won't compromise on his crazy.

    Eliminate the Fed?
    You could also watch your economy go right into the shitter.
    Would that make you happy? After wrecking the economy and making hundreds of millions living in misery, what will be your excuse for bad Ronulan press then? That the MEDIA is to blame?

    You Ronulans are a bunch of Pollyannas with your head in the clouds thinking he's the answer to everything. The only thing he's an answer to is teh question of how crazy can you be and still be considered a viable conservative candidate.
    Had Ron Paul really given a crap about this country, he would have run for something other than his safe House seat and accumulating all those sweet taxpayer funded federal benefits and perks for 30 years.

    You are a fucking IDIOT!! What taxpayer funded benefits and perks are you babbling about? All the ones that he's REFUSED to take? Like a Congressional pension?

    Dumber than a box of rocks, you are!

    It's not impossible to criticize Ron Paul. Points 22 and 23 are specifically referring to media fabrications such as his being "unelectable," despite the polling showing that Romney is the only Republican to do better than Ron Paul in head to head match ups against the sitting President of the United States. Not to mention that Ron Paul has more support from independents than any other Republican, and often even more than President Obama. So his being "unelectable" is hogwash, and points 22 and 23 simply point out how conservatives will often rail against the "liberal" media but many will then turn around and parrot their lies about Ron Paul.

    There are no white supremacists working on his campaign, and the newsletters are nonsense. Should he have had to answer for them? Sure. They did have his name on them, and he was too defensive in answering questions about them. However, nobody actually believes he wrote them. Politicians often employ ghostwriters. It's an open secret that Tom Woods, who wrote this blog, ghostwrote Paul's book The Revolution, and probably End The Fed and Liberty Defined as well. Is it really such a stretch that he had ghostwriters for his newsletter while he was delivering babies? As for it being written in the first person, I bet Mitt Romney and Rick Perry's books are written in the first person as well, and somehow I doubt they actually wrote much if any part of them.

    There's a security video that was released that shows Rand was detained in a cubicle just as he said he was.

    And GuyPinestra took care of your nonsensical claim that Ron Paul receives taxpayer funded benefits, so I won't bother.

    Oh, so Ron Paul NEVER MET with A3P members? He wasn't on a conference call with their board of directors?
    Ron Paul Linked To Racists? - Auburn Journal


    Ron Paul SIGNED HIS NAME to the following....

    “Given the inefficiencies of what DC laughingly calls the criminal justice system, I think we can safely assume that 95 percent of the black males in that city are semi-criminal or entirely criminal.”

    “We are constantly told that it is evil to be afraid of black men, it is hardly irrational.”

    [After the Los Angeles riots] “Order was only restored in L.A. when it came time for the blacks to pick up their welfare checks.”

    [Martin Luther King was] “the world-class philanderer who beat up his paramours” [who] “seduced underage girls and boys.”
    And he's not racist?

    As for his son being "detained"
    You are DETAINED in a PRISON CELL, you WAIT in a cubicle.
    How LONG was he "detained" 20 minutes? For mucking about with airport security? Sounds like he was treated rather favorably to me.
    Rand was kept just long enough to be told what a moron he was before he was sent on his way and he came back and acted like an ADULT this time instead of a petulant child and was able to fly.

    Ron Paul doesn't receive taxpayer funded benefits? Really? He pays his own health insurance then? His own retirement? He's not taking say, his retirement income from his cushy House seat job then? And way to not answer my challenge...that if Ron Paul wanted to affect change to suit him, he could have done more than failed to win any primaries for President.

    Ron Paul has sucked on the government teat for 30 years and you suggest he's not a gravy-trainer? BWAH HA HA HA HAH!

    Oh my goodness! Anonymous says this happened do they? Well if you can't trust criminal hackers who can you trust?

    He signed his name did he? Do you think your Representative signs their name to every single form letter sent out to their constituents?

    Detained | Define Detained at Dictionary.com

    Sounds like what happened to Rand.

    So Ron Paul refuses the Congressional pension, but keeps money he's earned and that qualifies him as a "gravy-trainer," huh?
