...would the left label him as the ultimate uncle Tom or does Herman 'the target' Cain already hold that distinction???

Ron Paul has said that if he were elected President one of his first acts would be to pardon all non-violent drug offenders.

Ron Paul is the guy you like to have a conversation about hypotheticals, but you really don't want to have running anything.

Because he's such a lunatic.

And how many of those do you think we actually have in Federal Prison?

I'm not sure why this is thread.... I don't know, and he'll never be black so why even go that route?

USDOJ: An Analysis of Non-violent Drug Offenders
Using one set of criteria which limited offenders to no current or prior violence in their records, no involvement in sophisticated criminal activity and no prior commitment, there were 16,316 Federal prisoners who could be considered low-level drug law violators. They constituted 36.1 percent of all drug law offenders in the prison system and 21.2 percent of the total sentenced FEDERAL prison population.

Wow, what a strongly reasoned argument against Ron Paul, his policies and what he stands for. You're obviously well informed.

You've changed my mind, I'm voting for Barack Obama in 2012! :uhoh3:

He'd be an uncle Tom, and Liberals would openly hate him, rather then use him as a tool against the GOP...

Tell us why. (This should be good) :lol:

He has an unimpressive record as Congressman
He has a dangerous view of the military and foreign policy
His libertarian views are unworkable in a modern nation
