    @Johnny just google "Ron Paul racism" and see what it pulls up. For the record I think a lot of what Ron Paul says makes sense (staying out of foreign affairs, United Nations, legalization of pot) but he still says a lot of questionable things.

    Take a step back for a second and think about it - do you actually think that any of this would ever happen?
    No I don't because the CRA will stay intact.

    Also, I'm with gardener. It's like you guys get a pamphlet and read off bullet points. A non poltical forum I went to had a "world affairs" section and there was a thread about Ron Paul and word for word they all said the same exact things as if though they were Jehovah's witnesses going door to door.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Are you ****ing serious? Google "barack obama racism" and see what it pulls up. Guess that proves he's a big, fat racist, right?

    People who follow the same political philosophy frequently say many of the same things. Are you just now learning this?

    No wonder today's media is in such a sorry state ...

    What can I say, free to choose is a powerful thing.
    They even made a TV show about it in the 70's.
    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.

    Also what do you mean media? Most media doesn't talk about his newsletters from the 90s or his op-ed pieces he wrote instead focusing on how he is right now. I guess the picture I posted wasn't proof enough though huh? What politican in their right mind would pose with Don Black?

    Used to be people thought for themselves and didn't follow something like it was the Bible.

    I share many of Ron Paul's views. Of course they sound the same because I support him. He is who got me interested in politics in the first place.

    I don't share all of his views. An example is he's pro-life and I'm pro-choice.

    I don't believe he's a racist. I believe the powers that be and media have every reason to smear him. He is a threat to Washington, big business and the Federal Reserve. He speaks out against the the corruption.

    Look at Bush and Obama. They are ultimately the same. Obama's policies mirror Bush's.

    After the points you made especially about the mother trying to buy formula really got to me. I will put in more reasearch on the issue. Of that were to happen it would break my heart.

    The problem in America is people will ccuse you of racism when you go against the status quo.

    I'm happy that we have a Black president. That door is finally open and it's about time. But his policies are horrible. There was no change.

    It's old news. He's addressed it to most intelligent people's satisfaction. It's been addressed on this very forum numerous times. In any event, it has **** all to do with any political stance he or any other libertarian has.

    And when I say "media," I mean you. Do you know why guilt by association is a losing tactic in political debate? I suggest you learn if you expect to be taken seriously.

    So what the hell does this mean? Are you going to give examples or just keep vomiting forth emotional hyperbole like a teenage girl?

    Yes, if it stayed intact, it's obvious that none of that would happen.

    However, I was very clearly posing you a hypothetical question in response to your hypothetical doomsday scenario. Do you mind answering it?

    I think Ron Paul is a nutjob and disagree with him on more than you do. I also don't consider myself a libertarian.

    Sorry to burst your bubble.

    -federal reserve

    -any other department you may have an opinion on

    -immigration
    -healthcare
    -foreign policy

    Well I could see quite a few places down in Mississippi or hate to say this, my home state of SC (ever been to Maurice's BBQ?) embracing such an amendment to CRA, it's only a matter of time until a black or hispanic ran shop decides to do the same thing if not for anything else, but out of spite.

    Also sorry, I was not referring to you being a Paul supporter if you thought that.

    He's been a vocal Libertarian, years before joining Fox.
    Well I will concede that point just seems like FOX seems to get the most people that work in absolutes.
