    Ron Paul is the only guy who gets it, yet he gets no respect from his colleagues. I guess intelligence is not looked upon highly in the House.

    He's too different for them... You know our congress hates any kind of original thought or ideas.

    Ron Paul is part of the problem
    his excuses for massive earmarks is just one example

    Earmarks are not a problem, the money is going to be spent whether it's earmarked or not.

    that is a lie
    if you eliminated earmarks, the administration could submit a budget that covers just what was already mandated that they do

    now they have to estimate just how much crap congress might add
    the way thing should be is a project that is worthy of federal funds should be its own bill

    I have read repeatedly that earmarks do not cost us anymore or less in the budget. The repeated claim is that earmarks only direct the money to special projects and the money would be spent anyway. I don't know what the truth of the matter is.

    We need more folks like Ron Paul around. Unfortunately, Ron tells the truth and I don't think many can accept it. Ron says over and over, THIS IS GOING TO HURT. Any real solutions will. Few are willing to make the sacrifices to correct our problems. We want it now. No sacrifices, no pain. I don't think many Paul supporters would be supporters after a few months of the man in charge and the kind of radical change and upheval he would most likely cause. Busting the Fed is the right thing to do, IMHO, but make no mistake, it would be near chaos for quite a while. And busting the Fed is at the top of Ron's list.
