  • Anyone that still thinks that a progressive vote for Paul is a legitimate vote under any circumstances doesn't know what the word progressive means. Anyone that thinks that Paul "understands the Constitution" and defends it either hasn't read the Constitution or doesn't know how to read.

Hello Microdot,
Yes and all would destroy, even taken one at a time like trading in only silver and gold, this country.

To me it's funny that the people of Iowa really think they are having a say here soon with their primary vote.....only if Karl approves.

Pabulum for the dumb Pusses.

Don’t worry Ron Paul is 77 years and will be 78 before the election. NO one will really vote for him in the general election due to the fact he could be dead before the first term is over five years from now.

I personally say, I hope the Goofy Right Wing Republicans DO put him up as their candidate for this next election. My Republican Primary vote is going for Michele Bachmann or Ron Paul because they are the two biggest TARDs running. I want to put up the biggest Bozo for the Republican Party I can this year.

As I have said, it really does not matter because I am sure Karl Rove has chosen Mitt Romney as the Golden Boy for this year.

EOK is right. It's going to be Romney.

Well, if you have been following my little train of has been it was and it will be romney...I just think that there are too many people who are attracted to libertarianism for facile iliogical reasons. we seem to have lost the ability to think about the outcome. it's all marketing. because you happen to have a few ideas that seem to be in synch with ron paul doesn't make him are right if it is what you believe, but what you believe is part of something much more bigger than the local fascism of libertarianism. we will always be a big society. what enobels the least of us enobels us all. libertarianism is a small idea that empowers local bullies. it would empower the religious right of all persuasions. it would only divide us and make us smaller as individuals. we have much boigger battles to wage than fighting for our civil rights all over again.

Libertarian is as nebulous an ideology as its slogans.

There is nothing to it other than pseudoanarchy that favours the rich.
