    Dude, you're committing the fallacy of Guilt by Association. Just because someone doesn't vote for Ron Paul does not mean they prefer large government and intereference in their lives.

    The implication of the OP is that you either vote for Ron Paul, or you'd rather have the government interfere in every aspect of your life. That's a logical fallacy. It should be self-evident.

    Secondly, simply because some candidates may be less libertarian or libertarian-leaning as Ron Paul, doesn't mean they advocate large government interference in citizen's daily lives. According to the OP, if you don't vote for Ron Paul than you favour big government interference in your life. I can vote for another candidate and still be anti-big government. (In fact, many libertarians voted for conservative candidates that supported measures like the Patriot Act, but that doesn't mean they actually support large government intervention programs and measures).

    Ah. More spoonfed absudity. Tell us. Do you ever say anything that you haven't read in an extreme conservative hack paper or website?

    Its the whole authoritarian/libertarian conservative conundrum.

    They TALK like libertarian conservatives, but they ACT like authoritarians.

    Its one of the things that frustrates liberals and a growing number of independents and libertarians as well.

    Re: Ron Paul for president

    In a banal sort of way I think I would vote for Ron Paul. Just to see what would happen if the US did embark on free market capitalism. I am curious to see what would happen to the mainstream news. Would quickly go from slapstick humor dark thriller? Sadly this is my new political hope for change.

    If Ron Paul got the nomination, I would come out of retirement to vote for him.
