    So in other words you want the man to change for you. That what liberals want everyone else to do and conservatives bitch about that.


    So, what'd he do? He moved to the kooks for support. The Alex Jones conspiracy freaks, and closet anarchists that believe that everything is America's fault including 9/11, and we are ignoble as a nation.
    Since when does doing interviews with Alex Jones is considered to moving towards him? Paul has never come out in support of the 9/11 truth movement, anything that says otherwise is smear by his enemies. Other people have done interviews with Jones; Lou Dobbs and Andrew Napolitano to name two. I also find it funny how when Paul talks about CIA blowback thats considering being pro-terrorist. People dont like to hear the truth about our foreign policy so its easier to squawk out Neocon talking points to the man.

    No, I don't want anything out of the good Doctor other that what he thinks is the truth. But let's look at this realistically shall we? Paul did change how he was running and who he was in his own campaign when he played to all those truthers on American campuses in the campaign. Now you supporters want to deny that part of things but history doesn't lie.

    P-U-H-LEEEEEEZE!!!!! So now if we don't jump behind Paul we are enemies of the man? Come on chevy, you're a better poster than that.

    If you are trying to say that Dr. Paul didn't espouse the theory that we were attacked because of our own policies abroad, and he believes that the investigation into 9/11 was a cover-up....Here he is at a 9/11 truther House party talking about getting with Kusinisch about a new investigation into 9/11, and for what purpose do you suppose? I'll tell ya, to blame America in one fashion or another.

    So what? We aren't talking about Napolitano, or Dobbs here, we are talking about Paul. And Alex Jones. Do you consider Jones to be a credible source? I don't. Some things I hear him talk about are interesting to listen to for the entertainment value, but then as usual he just carries it too far.

    But If I read you correctly here, and through all the name calling, you are saying that if we don't buy the supposed fact that America is the root cause of all the consternation in the world then we are just 'neocons', or 'enemies', or somehow 'liberals' and not true conservatives. Let's me ask you libertarians something. Who died and left you in charge of assigning affiliation to anyone?

    QFT.

    I've always admired Ron Paul, love his passion, agree with a lot of his common sense positions. But then he turns into Ron Paul, and I get the eeby geebies. He seems to drift out there in his own little thought world too often.

    Take Ron Paul and polish him up in a good way. Give him more presence, and you've got the kind of candidate that not only believes the right things, but can influence and persuade others to follow him.

    Can you please explain the difference to me, other than the fact that the crisis is centuries away rather than years?

    Absolutely. While I agree with 99% of his positions, I find it easy to understand why people call him a crazy kook. He just doesn't have the charisma and public speaking skills that most politicians have.

    Re: Rand Paul wins, and libertarians rejoice

    So, how many libertarians (even the ones who were elected under a different party name) are in the house and senate now? Is it just Ron and Rand?

    Rand Paul is not in congress yet. He won the republican primary is all.

    He is the only one I can think of. Most of the country still finds Libertarians way too far out there, hence the jubilation at some one close to them actually winning a primary.

    Libertarians are rejoicing for a Republican?

    Wouldn't they rather see, um... a Libertarian?
