    Re: Is Ron Paul Insane?

    He seems to have been paid off to let himself be used as
    a clown, similar to Buchanan. His high pitched voice had no
    chance in presidential politics, and his failure to understand
    how money gets its value doesn't fit his education and
    experience. Something fishy there.
    Take the red pill.

    That said, he is a horrible politician.
    He is generally incapable of lying his ass off and manipulating idiots, so, yes, you are right.

    Well then it's good to know he'll never get anywhere near the White House other then by taking tours of it or getting invited over for some afternoon tea.

    Very true. Instead, it will be someone politically inspired by the freedom movement.

    If you call Ron Paul insane, then you will have to call Barry Goldwater insane too, since that is where most of Ron Paul's platform comes from. You would also have to call Ronald Reagan insane. Good luck with that.

    And then I hear Messiah talk about Obama. Anyways.

    Who are you talking about? Somebody who thinks he should follow Ron Paul's simpleton interpretation regarding foreign policy? 'Minding our business overseas' in the 21st century is something nobody anywhere near the middle of the political spectrum other then Ron Paul and Kucinich advocate because it's simply never been in our best interests. America shouldn't go around policing the world but it certainly shouldn't turn a blind eye to military problems concerning our allies in any continent.

    Its obvious you have Dr. Paul's foreign policy stance muddled; he advocates a humble foreign policy, and no nation building/policing the world.

    He is not the isolationist you make him out to be. Would you consider France or Germany's foreign policy isolationist?

    There is difference between being inspired by the ideas a person espouses and being inspired by the way they talk and act. The mass euphoria surrounding Barak Obama had absolutely no substance whatsoever. It was simply the result of a love-struck media and a big steaming pile of populist rhetoric.

    Ron Paul's supporters were excited about him because he represented actual change and talked specifically about how to bring about that change. We appreciate what he represents, not the manner in which he presents it. Ron Paul is last guy who could be called eloquent or graceful, so the fact that he has such an excited base speaks to the substance of his positions.

    Who are you talking about? Somebody who thinks he should follow Ron Paul's simpleton interpretation regarding foreign policy?

    Do you understand the difference between isolationism and non-interventionism?

    Ron Paul.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?
