    Is Ron Paul Insane?

    According to some, Ron Paul is apparently insane. In fact, in this month alone I have heard at least three people refer to him or his policies (although they frequently fail to specificy which ones) as crazy. So, my question to you is, "Is Ron Paul insane?" If so, what has he done to lead you to such a moronic and preposterous conclusion? Moreover, what specific policies of his do you find to be insane and why? Please, refrain from citing his policies as you remember them, instead, quote him directly and progress logically from there.

    Well, when you compare him to the average politician who says what people WANT to hear instead of what needs to be said... then yeah, he may be crazy. But I suppose you'd have to call me crazy for wanting someone like that in office.

    Ron Paul isn't insane but he has a humongous uphill battle to fight.

    He is really the only one screaming to a deaf audience that they must reign in spending and expansion. In our majority is right society people will think he is crazy.

    Some of his supporters like the 9-11 truthers and the I only care about legalizing drugs crowd are bad for his image. It paints the rest of us as the same.
    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.

    Yeah, I hate it when what can be considered "Extremist" groups paint their picture all over an official I like. It instantly makes me wince.

    Especially the 9-11 truthers... ****in A!! We will get nowhere with them jumping up and down with support.

    The Alex Jones Society is full of nut cases.

    They screw the pooch for any of us making progress.

    Over analyzing that **** over and over.

    I believe that most of those people see his platform and realize how extreme some of his views are, so their first reaction is "omg he's a nutcase".

    I like Ron Paul, personally, I think he's a good example for third partys to follow.

    Sorry dude but if you are concerned with reducing the size of government and individual liberty. Why waste all your efforts on proving or disproving a single event.

    Spend your time pushing small government and individual liberty.

    No, it just doesnt garner any support when you have the ridiculous ones that hold up signs telling people that their dead loved ones are alive and being hidden by the government.

    Re: Is Ron Paul Insane?

    Ron Paul is in my opinion a very good man and a terrific american, the only thing I really disagreed with him on was an immediate pull out from Iraq, while it sounds great on paper the resulting power vacuum would be a huge nightmare, the country of Iraq must be stable. Other than that I am probably around 80-90% in agreement with Dr. Paul.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
