i am baffled by the video how could anybody attempting to prevent young black men from going to jail for drugs, be perceived as a racial hate monger bent on harming black people.

See, the belittling here doesn't help the argument.

I could explain to you all day long with cited examples as to why I know/believe that the man is not racist...as can many other Paul supporters.

For most of us that support Paul, we have known about this issue for years, so it is pretty easy to debunk it and move on...you may take that as "blindly defending" but I've probably spent a good 6+ hours researching this issue on my own since I first learned of it in 2008, so it isn't blind defense, rather it is well informed rebuttal.

My statement was you attacked him as a racist, not that you "said" he was a racist. It was in your support of the thread accusing racism and jumping on the bandwagon. Sorry but I don't know how to link specific posts from other threads. It is easy enough for anyone to go back and look for themselves, including yourself.

Blindly worship, surely you jest. Most supporters of Dr. Paul's candidacy include substantial evidence to back up his positions. I'd challenge you to find the same on any consistent basis for any candidate, including Obama.

It is not the worship of a man but the kinship and enthusiasm in the support of liberty and our Consitution. Are you able to understand that distinction?

Just as I THOUGHT, OP, like her hero mentor, Ron Paul...she avoids an answer to a simple, Direct question.

A direct answer...can't be spun.

I find it funny that you like to join liberals in bashing Paul, when the real reason you don't like him is because he isn't conservative enough. You want a candidate who is a die hard bible thumper, who wants America to be a Christian theocracy, who is anti-gay, anti abortion, and pro war. Let me know where I'm mistaken.

But Ron Paul is a deeply religious man. He just doesn't use his political position as a pulpit. He lives the life of a man of faith in his daily walk rather than just talking the talk. His faith is witnessed in his humility. For me, actions have always spoken louder than words.

IMO, Ron Paul is the most Conservative candidate running. Without being first and formost Constitutionally Conservative, the other claims of conservatism by other candidates are without foundation. YMMV.
