    Then they fight you, Then you Win." - Mahatma Gandhi

    I think that sums up Ron Paul perfectly. So don't let anyone get you down fellow Dr. Paul supporters. He is making progress. He really is. It may not be as quickly as we want it to be but it is happening. He is getting through to more & more Americans everyday. He may not win this Election, but he is winning. So hang tough and keep fighting the good fight. It's worth it.

    Naw,he or she is just in the 'laugh at you' phase. That will change in the near future though.

    I did not ignore him at first. I did not laugh at first. But, I am laughing now and I will soon ignore him.

    Actually not.

    Gandhi’s goal was to unite many nations in one state and bring about unity and peace.

    Paul’s goal is to divide Americans into factions, destroy the rule of law, allow the tyranny of the states and majority, and subject the people to the capricious whims of the ‘free markets,’ with no means to find a remedy to injustice.

    The two men couldn’t be more dissimilar.

    Gandhi was so enamored of his non-violence, he couldn't work up the gumption to fight the Nazis.

    He's no fucking role model, either.

    I don't laugh at Ron Paul at first. I laugh at him STILL. He makes a little bit of sense on SOME realms, but loses any hint or hope of credibility with the goofy ass positions in other realms.

    He doesn't have a snow ball's chance in hell. Fuck him anyway. He's a nut.
