    Which begs the question: If he is so insignificant then why so much attention and why so much hate? Are unending wars and the unraveling of the order as you know it really that big a deal?

    attention is only paid to him when paulians start spouting his nonsense....

    knowing someone is an idiot isn't the same as "hating" them. i'm not sure why certain people get confused by things like that.

    It’s not ‘hate, ‘ at least as far as I am concerned.

    And it’s not really about Paul, either.

    There are a significant number of Americans who agree with Paul, and his policies, most of which simply wrong, such as his position on ‘states’ rights.’ for example. Paul warns of the tyranny of the Federal government yet would allow Americans to be subject to the tyranny of state and local governments. A loss of civil liberties is a loss of civil liberties, regardless the source.

    It isn't hate. It's a realistic view if his foreign policy.

    Are you sure about that? The further this country drifts to lack of compromise then the further it drifts toward hate. This country is on the brink of some fairly serious calamity.

    But yes, hate is a powerful word. I should have said "dislike".

    So am I to assume you're a proud southerner who disagrees with Paul's foreign policy?

    He's against policing the world and establishment types, from both sides of the aisle, will do what it takes to get that money train going.
