I use to think he was a nut job also until I woke up and started thinking for myself, not what others wanted me to think.
No. Because I have two good ears and two good eyes. You are entitled to believe the loon if you wish

His positions in economics? This position seem better than the one we currently have.

Well, in addition to your good eyes and ears, I have an absurd amount of critical thinking skills. Why would you provide a link to an opinion piece called "Gary's Hood" when if you really wanted to prove a point you could talk about his insane voting record. Yep, good ole Dr. Paul is what we call a Constitutionalist. If it violates or hinders the Constitution in anyway, it's a no vote.

Unlike most people, I actually read the legislation that is proposed, being voted on, or that has been passed. It's boring sometimes, but i don't let MSM or anyone else give me my opinion. That is precisely led me to become a Libertarian.

Is anyone perfect? No, absolutely not. At least my enlightenment led me to the biggest discovery, the one most people have a hard time wrapping their heads around; the fallacy of the left/right paradigm.

The establishment won't let him win or anyone else that has ideas on how to keep America strong. If you notice our last President and this one seem hell bent on building other countries up while tearing ours down.

Ron Paul isn't perfect, but at least he wouldn't be funding Muslim Brotherhood........

Your assertion is that the current system is a "real education"?

No, it is the final and most evolved stage of human civilization. We have to genetically breed out the weakest and fearful cowards until we have enough mental fortitude in society to take responsibility for ourselves.

Closest place to a libertarian country is Switzerland. Oh, and they are a superior economic and freer society.

You know, a complaint against Obama was/is that he has no "real world" experience. Yet here we have Paul, who did what, work in a medical practice (not sure he owned it) for a few years, then spent the rest of his career in and out of Congress. So what does he know about economics in practice?
