    Yeah, he's one of the very few politicians that is truly consistent with his ideology. I can respect that.

    Of course, that consistency-no-matter-what is what makes him a monster.

    Please never ever forget that Ron Paul is part of that two party system you blame.

    The problem with what you are saying is, Ron Paul is insane. Ron Paul doesn't give a **** and IN FACT I think he is almost as legendary as Chuck Norris.

    Ron Paul is the result of dividing by zero.

    That is a plausible alternative explanation.

    This is indeed very true. Ron Paul would have to be insane to go against the scary GOP machine for his strong stance on two issues:

    -War is bad
    -Weed kicks ass

    Paul's reasoning behind these? How could a conservative call themselves conservative and want to keep dumping money into the war machine and not want to make money off of selling weed?

    it is an irresponsibility to claim that killing our friends is good for us because at least it embarrasses The Man.
    I don't believe that Ron Paul has a problem with government's legitimate functions, but it's illegitimate functions, which we the people, as the Constitutional owner of government, have a right to know about, so that we have a choice of doing something about it at the ballot box, or continuing to sit on our asses and let it continue.

    Re: Ron Paul Says We Need More Wikileaks

    Like I said for every one thing the Paul clan says I strongly disagree with, they say another thing that I couldn't agree with more. They are really a double edged sword that if I had no other choice, would chose them over anything because to my knowledge they don't really have to many interest outside of what they do right now.

    Re: Ron Paul Says We Need More Wikileaks

    I'm all for more leaks, the only reason all the GOP pinheads are calling for assassinations is because these leaks show how shady and corrupt our government is, not because its going to "endanger the troops" I see that as just more rhetoric to steer the people away from seeing the truth( seeing as most people take in all mainstream media as truth without filtering out all the B.S.) The fact that Ron Paul is always going against the grain tells me that he's legit and not just another typical politician who is being influenced by special interests. I would challenge anyone to find me a link to a cable or document released by wiki leaks that could pose a threat because after watching reporters and children be killed by an Apache helicopter, I have yet to see one that could pose this supposed "threat".
