    “I think we have passed that point of no return where we can actually get our house in order,” Rep. Paul said Friday on CNBC. “I believe there is too much bipartisanship on the spending. Nobody is talking about cutting any spending.”

    “Republicans and Democrats,” he continued, “they pretend they’re fighting up there, but they really aren’t. They’re arguing over power, spin, and who looks good, and who looks bad, but they’re all trying to preserve this system where they can spend what they want, take care of their friends, and let the Fed print money when they need it

    As anyone with an ounce of common sense already knows, the modern day Republican's (like George W. Bush) are just Kennedy-era, big government, big spending liberals. And the Democrats are just full-fledged socialists/marxists/communists.

    It's so ironic - the left has gotten everything they've wanted for the past 100 years, and (like all conservatives knew), all it has brought is decay and collapse, which the liberals cry the loudest about.

    Politicians of old were like volunteer firemen of today.

    Those fuckers should get a real job and answer the call when truly needed.

    I'm not a dem but your perception of them is rediculous. Demigogging your contrived hate will not make it so either. Every Communist system that ever was had starving populations and horrible delivery of even the most common items to their populations...only strong capitalism gets the goods on the shelves on time. I just went to the store today and it was full of shoppers getting everything they needed and as it should be in America ...everything they WANTED.

    North Korea..citizens...starving
    USSR.. had to wait in block long lines to buy toilet paper.
    Communist China... population starving.

    Conclusion...you are as always an idiot.

    I thought Rot's post was rather bi-political.

    no one really liked Ron Paul in the primaries - and those were Republicans.

    The "sad truth" is that the 6 most economically competitive nations in the world would all be considered "socialist" by American standards - no libertarian nations on the list!

    Ron Paul will be remembered as an ignorant, naïve, reactionary fool.

    And of course we hear the right whine about ‘spending’ but never a word from conservatives about cuts to military spending, corporate welfare, or agribusiness.

    Don't expect any leftist Zombie to agree with you.. They never met a tax dollar they didn't want to steal.

    The entire government is corrupt and we all know it. I deeply respect Ron Paul. I didn't agree with him 100% of the time but I wasn't looking for someone to mirror me. He's given his life to this country and has had the guts to stand up and tell the truth about many things other politicians don't have the ballz to even mumble beneath their breath.
