    Well I guess you have the hyperbole and intellectual dishonesty tied up there. gg

    Psst, that was a response to a different poster who claimed it wasn't even close, that Obama was well better. I was just pointing out the discrepancy between her statement and the vote is all. I made no claim of legitimacy towards the overall political landscape; though even then you may find great changes have occurred since the railroading Ron Paul was given during the primaries.

    Re: Ron Paul vs Barack Obama

    I understand, but he was seemingly to express his personal opinion. Now, while it wasn't backed up with anything, a large amount of anonymous posters voting for Ron Paul doesn't magically invalidate the notion that, FOR HIM, there's no question that the better choice is Barack Obama. 500 people on here could've voted for Paul, I doubt that'd get him to change nor would it invalidate his notion that for him there's no question.

    Re: Ron Paul vs Barack Obama

    I think it's funny how anonymous white people still think a white guy is tougher than a black guy. Keep dreaming, fellas.

    Obama's got the height and the reach on Paul. + Stamina. It's a no-brainer. Paul will be TKO's in 2 rounds.

    Wait, this was a boxing match and not moderated debate we're talking about, right?

    Elaborate some, Ikari...
    I feel that if a man is honest with himself and others and if he subscribes to an isolationist policy - he should be man enough to own up to it.
    Same thing regarding being a racist....
    Of course, on-one would publicly admit to either, but privately ???
    And it may be a popular thing today, to be a Liberatian.....as it is a Greenie....but one must consider everything and do what is best for the long term..

    Re: Ron Paul vs Barack Obama

    Ron Paul's policies are neither isolationist nor racist. Only one of dubious intellectual capacity would make the claim. Or one being intellectually dishonest and wishing only to spread hyperbole and misinformation. So you can take your pick, but I suggest if you wish to disparage a political ideology that you first try to understand what the ideology is in the first place.

    Ron Paul, should I type out period, oh my, I just did.
    I’m wondering how non-interventionism is a horrible foreign policy.

    A majority of people nationally supported such a measure, but almost every politician from the south, where it was the biggest problem, voted against it. It didn't end bigotry, but it was a huge step in the right direction, and did much more than any libertarian solution would have.

    If foreign policy were the only issue I cared about I would vote for Ron Paul. Unfortunately I think he’s dead wrong on virtually everything else. Nevertheless, I would love to see a Ron Paul 2012 Republican ticket for the sheer fact that he would have a larger megaphone and I would enjoy watching the neocons squirm in their no-longer-effective “why do you hate American?” rhetoric.

    Remember in the 2008 Republican primaries when Ron Paul had the gall to bring up our counterproductive middle eastern policy and he was straw manned by Rudy Guiliani who incorrectly accused him of claiming he was blaming Americans (as if the people of New York were the ones deciding to intervene overseas for the last half century or more).

    Remember when O’Reilly interviewed Ron Paul and wouldn’t let him articulate in the situation in Iran?

    YouTube - Ron Paul on ORielly

    I would vote for Obama again because I agree with most of his intended policies (I think the compromises he’s had to make to get ‘a’ bill through have made some legislation less-than-ideal.
