Lol at every response!

Allow me to post another: I have been on these forums for a long time, yet I support Ron Paul. You do not need to be new here to have critical thinking skills.

Like a lot of people, I became a Ron Paul supporter because of CD, not the other way around. I heard of him before, but didn't really know him from Adam. There were/are plenty of people for and against him, but the difference was, the overwhelming theme of people supporting him was "Don't take my word for it. Go research him for yourself.". I did research him and found his platform the most sensible by far - not even close.

From the Nay-sayers I don't get "Research him", I get "Take my word for it, he's nuts." or "Don't waste your vote on someone that can't win." (lesser of two evils argument).

I always lurked on here a year before I joined to see which Illinois cities were best to live in. Didn't even realize the politics forum before I signed up.

I have more posts than you and I support Ron Paul. Am I new?
