You can't blame people for picking and choosing whatever points they want to hear. I think it's Ron Paul's own fault for not trying hard enough to win the people. I'm sure he knows his own shortcoming, and if he really cares to win, he should go out there and do whatever he can to win. If he doesn't even bother to try hard enough to win, then he shouldn't run and disappoint his supporters again and again.

Personally, I think he does have many good ideas, but his stand on totally free market stops me cold.

It was tax cuts for all taxpayers (not just the "rich").
Also, the "rich" actually paid more in taxes (by percent) after the tax cuts than before.

Ron Paul -Can Say Whatever He Wants And Not Have To Worry About Opposition, Scrutiny, Deficits or Actually Making It Happen.

The back-up Quarterback Persona..They always look great throwing in practice or on the sidelines at halftime and all the fans like the loveable loser. But when they finally get in the game they turn into Jay Shroeder.

You have a lot of nerve to call someone an idiot after typing this post.

I didn't say we "needed" anything. I am saying that for you to belittle an air force flight surgeon, medical doctor who ran his own practice, and a man who has been in congress with a solid voting record is absurd. paul has presented his package. don't raise taxes, cut spending.
