    Hey, Floores is serious bidness ya know. And that would be fun, people who meet me in RL are amazed how laid back I am. And how long my hair is.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I said the same thing once, back when I was playing for Viper. My hair ended up all the way down to my ass.

    Government has always been in the process of failing.

    What he's talking about is economy... which isn't economical at all right now.

    Speaking of government failing, I wonder if our senators and congress critters know more than we give them credit for? Anyone notice the number of congress critters that are jumping ship? It almost seems they don't want be in office when the **** hits the fan.

    He's still considered a nut everywhere else - it's just the Republican Party has gone off the deep end and can't tell night from day anymore. Not that they've ever really played for the Sanity Team.

    Thus guaranteeing he will never be the Republican presidential nominee. It's a fascist party - if Barack Obama made an identical statement, the same people who applauded the line from Ron Paul would have called the President a treasonous weakling trying to open America up to "invasion" by "muslins."

    Because he is crazy. Not necessarily a bad person, and not evil the way so many in his party are, but definitely not in regular communication with reality.

    Quote Originally Posted by danarhea View Post

    And I'm sure that consideration will be very thorough and satisfying - a fine consolation prize for the fact that it's never going to happen. Not, at least, under a Republican Congress. The GOP would bury people alive before it would allow an audit of the Fed. To the extent Paul's influence with the base grows, his foibles will be indulged, but if he gets out of line the Republican media will get a memo from Roger Ailes saying that Paul is now on the outs, and suddenly all his coverage will sound like they're talking about Jack The Ripper rather than some deluded libertarian. The Republican Party is evil. Ron Paul is not. They will use him to the extent they can without sacrificing any of their power or loot, and beyond that they'll just throw him away.

    The Fed will not end itself, and this is hardly an issue that resonates with the American electorate.

    More like the vestiges of Richard Nixon's jackboot squad brought you Ronald Reagan - they were the ones who overwhelmingly ran his administration. He was just a mindless actor who preened for the cameras and pretended to be a leader while the predecessors and contemporaries of men like Dick Cheney operated the machinery, setting the stage for their own ultimate ascendence under George W. Bush. Conservatives who fawn over the memory of Ronald Reagan yearn for a fantasy that never existed - a sham image covering an ugly underbelly.

    Ted Nugent? Orly Taitz? The reincarnation of Jefferson Davis?

    Why? Your movement is completely owned. I hope you carefully track the progress of Paul's Fed audit so you understand what an absolute patsy he is. The Republican Party is a fascist organization.
