This is the one area in which I find the RP supporters more admirable than Dems or Republicans - at least in what they say they'll do (we'll see in November). Everyone whines about how horrible our government is. "Oh the deficit!" "Oh The Corporate Control of GE / Halliburton or whatever company represents the other side!" "The waste!" "The hypocisy!" "The needless wars!" "The waste of drug enforcement!" and so on. Dems whine about it. Repubs whine about it. But no one will stick to their guns and forward a third party candidate who they'll stick by, come election time. Except Ron Paul supporters. So how are they treated by everyone who whines a btiches about how crappy our politicians are? They are demonized, ridiculed and called names. Okay, about half of them have it coming. We've all seen them: "Vote for my candidate and agree with me on everything or your are a Statist, Nazi, Nanny-State loving, dog molester!" Those whackjobs make Ron Paul and his other supporters look pretty crazy. Newsflash for that segment of Paul supporters: Dems and Repubs are voting for their candidates because they like their positions better, not because they're Statist Nazis. Sometimes it is that simple. But I admire the more civil and reasonable Ron Paul supporters for sticking by their guns. I agree with Ron Paul on giving away taxpayer money to foreign politicians, the waste of the drug war, the fact that Iraq and most of our wars were alll bull shit and a theft of our money to enrich the military industrial complex and a few other issues. If I didn't disagree with him so vociferously on so many other issues, I would vote for him and guess what? That would NOT be a wasted vote. It would send a message that I'm tired of the same old BS. I think that's the message that Ron Paul voters intend to send and it's very, very valid.
