    May be but this one is 2 years old.

    Besides, it may be interesting for someone to see one's post in 2 years time.

    college kids these days are different from those of the 60s. Back then you had counter-culture, bleeding-heart libs, hippies, and the anti-war movement. Today, (at least given my own college experiences), it's hip to be libertarian, and Ron Paul is the hottest politician around on campuses.

    I don't think he's insane though. I probably wouldn't vote for him unless the competition was miserable, but he is not a crazy person. He is an honorable man and an honest politician, which is more than you can say for a lot of other people.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Ron Paul is sane. Everybody else is crazy and needs electroshock therapy.

    I wouldn't say Ron Paul is insane, at least not in the sense that he seems he could be diagnosed with anything in the DSM.

    However, I would say that his views are highly unrealistic and naive.

    Paul has idea's that are not common and seem counter intuitive to what many think, they know.
    That doesn't make him wrong.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    to label Ron Paul insane would make a person either an asshole, or an idiot.

    people can disagree with each other on all kinds of issues without the level of bigotry required to label the opposition as insane. no question that Ron Paul's vision for America is way different then most other peoples, but it is hardly an insane vision.

    Ron Paul isn't insane. His generalized views aren't insane. The way he at least seems to present his method of getting to those views, in relation to how modern politics typically works, could be considered insane though I wouldn't describe it as that exactly myself.

    I don't know but I guess if three people you know said he or his policies were crazy then it's clearly time to put him away. Someone is obviously crazy.

    Ron Paul has always argued for openness and an audit of the Federal Reserve and that has made him powerful enemies. The Federal Reserve chicanery needs to be investigated.
