    1) Ron Paul did not write that newsletter.

    2) Ron Paul fired the guy who did.

    And Dr. Paul acknowledged his responsibility for what was in the newsletter while, at the same time, condemning in the strongest terms what had been printed. Anything else is just slander from the Daily KoS.

    Actually, I think that the presidential election isn't really a great gauge for the pervasiveness of libertarianism. Most people feel like voting for a third party is a waste of a vote, especially for a presidential election. Libertarianism is growing rapidly. I'm certain that the number of libertarians in this country is far greater than one half of one percent, they just vote for one of the two big parties in important elections.

    HA HA HA HA HA HA HA

    Disrespectful Libertarians Hijack CPAC Poll -- And Its Mission - FoxNews.com

    Oh as for the bull**** Ron Paul is racist garbage, I find that 60% of the time of those who bring it up at the same time defend Pat Buchanan's racial garbage. Its quite funny really

    It's clear it has to be someone who could beat Obama or who ever gets the Democrat nomination in the case Obama keeps falling in the polls because he hasn't yet learned that pretending he's our dictator against the majority of American opinions is no way to win re-election.
    There is much I agree on with Ron Paul:

    Foreign policy, non-intervention, Iraq, Israel, Iran, Sudan, Cuba, and terrorism. If it were not for his social policies, I could vote for this guy!

    Even though I cannot stand Piers Morgan in Larry's place? I did watch and must say that if the Donald does decide to run? I would consider voting for him.

    hardly

    it takes a special kind of mind even to think, let alone say, things like---i miss the closet, there was no aids epidemic before they came out, gays lives are centered on sex with no reason to live past 50, they enjoy the attention and pity that comes with being sick, you know how fleet footed black teens are, welfaria, zooville, rapetown, hate whitey day, the animals are coming, 5% of blacks hold sensible views, carjacking is the hip hop thing to do...

    very few of us (forums members), for example, i believe, are even conceivably capable of going there

    whoever is responsible for the years of hate appearing for years in the RON PAUL newsletter is one sick dude

    it all comes down to people, who they are

    and their values

    stay up

    I think you underestimate The Donald. He is a very powerful man that has the funds needed & backing to run a successful campaign and seems to have a strong grasp on political issues. I have been pretty impressed in interviews with him in reguards to politics. Also keep in mind folks that have no care at all about politics would vote for him and even though he is not a liberal? Hollywood may back the man too.

    A lot of folks thought Obama could not relate to the majority of Americans and you see where he is sitting
