As you point out, he may include them, but he's never voted for one earmark. The money would be spent, so he may as well direct some to his district. He would vote for it not to be spent in the first place. If you want a bridge or an airport, put forth a clean bill explaining the need for it. The problem is the system he is working within. You can count on him to makes changes when he is President.
How exactly do you think a hypothetical President Paul is going to ever get anything done?
All he and his supporters do is trash and belittle anyone who disagrees with the sainted Dr. Paul, and he's going to need the support of those people if he wants anything passed in Congress.
Perhaps people need to learn what the Republican Party USED to stand for. Educate yourself on that and while you are at it, do some reading on Robert A. Taft.
Sometimes educating yourself before running your mouth keeps you from looking like a fool...
Who in God's name cares about the what the Republican party used to stand for? For 11 years running now the collosal stench they represent is epic. They wrecked the country under Bush, then obstructed progress ever since. Your party stinks, no question.
Paul is running as a Republican, yet he represents the most repulsive segment of it.
Except he doesn't walk the walk. He's one of the biggest earmarkers in Congress and boasts about all the pork he brings home to his consituents.
If you understood earmarks you would understand that by doing so he brings back to his district the money they already paid to the federal government. This in turn limits the Executive Branch's reach in determining where taxpayer money should be spent.
How any conservative or any Republican could support Ron Paul is a mystery to me.

When did that happen? Do you have a link (other than an opinion blog) to back this. I know Paul endorsed Chuck Baldwin with McKinney and Nader recieving favorable mentions for signing Paul's Four Key Principles agreement:
