Yet you support a type of government that goes further back than ours, one that has always failed the people. What does that say? I mean besides your ability to avoid discussing his policies which work and yours, which are destructive.
I'm living yours right now. At least put on a clean boot before you place it across the peoples necks.

There's hope for the blue dogs.

I just wonder how many people would have switched their vote from Obama to Paul as a Dem or from Romney to Obama if Ron Paul was the Repub candidate? How do you run a poll thread on this site?

I would have loved Ron Paul as the Repub candidate but I have some doubt about how many people would have swayed had he been the Repub candidate.

Minorities soundly rejected a guy who, by all appearances, doesn't seem to have a racist bone in his body.

Obama would have torpedoed Paul so badly, Paul would have made klansmen seem less racist.

Whether or not you think obama is a great president, his ability to run a campaign, especially with the circumstances he had, is impressive. He ran a clinic on romney, and that crazy tea party. What do you think he would have done to ron paul and his tin foil on my head supporters? Your libertarian society allows for discrimination. There would be no way he could defend that, especially with the media backing Obama.

And there it is again. I think it's just a reflexive response from some people, because there are never specifics to back up the claim. I ask again, what is so crazy about individual liberty, fiscal responsibility, and peaceful foreign policy?

The only thing that's bat**** crazy is the government we currently have -- spending more than it has, stripping us all of our liberties, and bombing the world into oblivion.

So ending the failed war on drugs that only benefiting the murderous drug cartels and the special interests like the prison industrial complex is bat sh** crazy? Or perhaps it's his non-interventionalist policy, you know... not involving ourselves in bulls*** wars and continuing to play the world cop? Is that what you think is bat sh** crazy? Or could it be that he has been right about everything, but yet the American people don't want to hear the truth!

This again? Oh noes, If Ron Paul was elected president, he would allow slavery again in the US.

If Ron Paul is crazy, so are the Founding Fathers and the principles they established for this country.
As usual just drinking the kool aide and letting the lamestream media do their thinking for them, so that they can hurry up and catch the next episode of Jersey Shore.

Still haven't read the Libertarian platform have you? No matter how many times you repeat a lie, it doesn't make it true. Show me in the Libertarian platform where they would allow discrimination! Take your time..... we'll wait for your answer.

the problem is, you think your policies are about individual liberty, fiscal responsibility, and peaceful foreign policy. Its just anarchy, and delusional at best.

No, the poor would be screwed, and minorities would SOL.
