    I admire the man's guts, that's for damned sure.

    I don't think his solution will work, but he's sure as hell right that what we have now isn't working for the benefit of this society.

    If people thought Ron Paul had the right ideas, they would have voted for him.

    Personally, i think he's a lot of hot air...someone who claims to be opposed to earmarks, but takes earmarks for HIS constituency; and pretends to be for term limits, but keeps his own butt in his Congressional seat.

    Yeah, well, ultimately, I think he's full of it and the people who think he's all that and a bag of chips just like him because he hates government and would hang Israel out to dry.

    So the far reaches of the left and the white supremacists love him.

    OK

    so one who agrees with Paul on some of his economics is a white supremacist?

    that's funny.

    I explained BOTH of those to you in another thread, but of course you ran off after I did so.

    He also explained them both, too. You do realize he votes NO on bills he adds an earmark to, right?

    If he didn't keep his seat, he as the only voice that speaks out against the establishment would be gone. What good would he be if he surrendered his seat? He's the one who ORIGINATED the term limits legislation. If he were to give his seat up, how does a man like him get to proceed with his ideas? If he doesn't play by the establishment's rules, the establishment will eat him alive. He takes no congressional pension, no paid junkets, no paid healthcare. Can you say the same about YOUR rep?

    How about your PRESIDENT?

    Yeah skull, jillian's got the whole Paul support base narrowed down to only two types of people. Since you agree with him on some things, you're quite obviously a skin head.

    And if you aren't a skin head, you're a lefty. That's it. Those are the only two things you can be.

    I didn't say that, did I? I said the people who hate government love him, too.
