If its about stuff they disagreed with then perhaps it'd make for a lively town hall where both sides are giving their views.
    My problem is that Bachmann all of a sudden is rejecting statism and now signing Dr Paul's tune. Whos to say that people like her if elected will pull a full 180.

    I doubt you know very much about Paul's actual political positions.

    Well, what do YOU think the General Welfare Clause entitles the government to do and why?

    Fine, okay, I don't agree but lets see.

    The Reasonable and non elitist jerk response would be, oh I don't know, how about asking "Why do you believe he's a wing nut". Obviously, there's a number of things that could be the root cause, lets see what it may be. Then, I can possibly actually debate them or point out issues that they are confused about, thus potentially turning their opinion around.
    So, when someone makes a flippant and asinine remark a "reasonable" person is obligated to indulge them? Right, okay...

    It depends. If they are making fun of Ron Paul and Ron Paul supporters, then yes. If they are for Ron Paul, then no. The latter requires that you write a post to said poster explaining in the most elitist, condescending, and smug manner possible how they are being elitist, condescending, and smug.

    Depends. Do you want to know why I think Paul is a wingnut? If so, ask, if not, then no. I am pretty indifferent. You can actually probably guess the reasons based on my beliefs I have expressed on this board.

    Talk is cheap, but one's voting record never lies.

    What specific policy-based arguments do you have in favor of Ron Paul's "wing-nut" status? I'm all ears.

    Very nice, throwing out a red herring. We're discussing Ron Paul supporters, do you really have no other argument?
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).
