    the motherfucker is a fiscal genius and has the absolute right ideas when it comes to social issues.

    if anyone is actually interested in this topic beyond "eyerate loves the cock" i can drop a shitload of ron paul videos that will make you hate the fact the media and establishment blackballed him back in 08.

    have no idea who this guy is, he tryna be president or somthing? He seems to have his head screwed on proper tho. They should leaglize all drugs, imagine an ectasy pill that was manufactured with actual safety regulations. They could prolly make those things have no come downs. This is defiantly somthing they need to consider in England, English drugs on a whole are disgusting. Even alotta weed has glass, fibre glass, sand in it nowa days.

    I really like Paul, but he is an idealist and not a realist

    His policy's might have worked like 100 years ago with a much smaller population, and much less infrastructure/money within the country, but now it would fuck shit up guaranteed

    that being said, even if you disagree with ron on some issues, he's still the man, and he sure has the right idea on the drug war, and some other issues

    ...his son rand on the other hand, scares the shit out of me, and the idea that he might be able to use his fathers popularity to get voted into to some sort of office is not good.

    Because of his views against the war and his liberal stance on social issues Ron Paul has won a lot of fans he doesn't deserve. The guy is just fucking weird. For one he's a libertarian who believes government shouldn't have any role in the economy what so ever, which is just kind of a ridiculous point of view that isn't taken seriously outside of freshman college dorm rooms.

    Even worse though are his white supremacist views that are sort of an open secret among his longtime supporters here in Texas, but not so well known among his new national following. A lot of this stuff came out when reporters dug up copies of some of his old newsletters full of racist bullshit. Ron Paul had the support of all the neo-Nazi stormfront.org types too.

    And his dumbass son Rand Paul (who is running for Congress now) came out a while back saying he was against the Civil Rights Act and then had to backtrack when it created a lot of controversy.

    He's got his heart in the right place about a lot of things, but for the most part, he's batshit crazy.

    i disagree.. i think most of rons policies would work incredibly well.. the only ones that wouldnt are the ones the media and both parties fabricated out of fear stemming from his grassroots popularity. the dude does NOT want to go back to the gold standard. he does NOT believe in isolationism. the dude raised the most money online EVER in one day with 4.2m. the craziest part of that is that the vast majority of it came in small increments vs the large corporate lump sums that comprise most political fundraising campaigns.

    I think Paul's idiosyncratic views are quite nutty in most instances (he basically wants to abolish all social welfare and safety nets), but on this issue, and US foreign policy, he is in the right more than any other established US politician. Even though he will likely never be a major candidate, he is nonetheless valuable as a spokesman for certain causes, which otherwise go unchallenged in the American media.

    you should go do some research.. the pamphlets were fabrications and he doesnt want the FED to control our economy.. you do know his audit the fed bill was one of the most popular controversial bills in recent history, right? interesting that all this shit starts coming out when hes KILLING the poll and fundraising numbers right?
