BTW, I still have my "Paul for President 2008" sticker on my bumper. Looks like it is time to get a 2012 one to match it.
    Yep need to get one for myself as well. I have the sign my wife got signed for me by Dr Paul in December 2007 at his rally in Greenville,SC Wonder if he is going to come near SD this year or next.

    Why would Israel be behind 9/11 if, as you've stated elsewhere, the US is controlled by Zionists? Wouldn't that mean Israel was effectively attacking itself?

    Oh, and to be on topic, isn't Ron Paul a truther?

    And he voted against every one of those pork bills. But since he knows they are going to pass, he is doing the right thing to make sure people in his district get some benefit from the money taken from them.

    so you can stop demagoguing anytime.

    Just because I won't vote for Ron Paul doesn't mean I prefer large government and interference in my life.

    For example, I agree with Ron Paul that the War on Drugs needs to end. I probably agree with him on a few other particular points.

    However, I disagree with him that the majority of the federal government needs to be abolished.

    I like the Department of Education, although I would gear it more towards nation-wide administration than anything to do with curriculum.

    I also like the Department of Transportation, as we need federal dollars to build up our transportation infrastructure. After all, the better our transportation system the better our commerce can flow, which is better for our economy.

    I also like the Food and Drug Administration. I like that there's a regulatory agency to make sure that the foods and drinks I consume are safe, and if they aren't that they have measures to track them to ensure no more people get sick or ill.

    I also like the Department of Homeland Security, although I would probably separate its anti-terrorist functions from its disaster relief functions. Possibly by even proposing another Cabinet Department for that sole reason.

    So while I don't want big government neither do I want an ineffective government. And that's why I won't vote for Ron Paul.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    I'm okay with the idea of the FDA and Department of Transportation, but I think the FDA would be better served being left to the states to run and operate. I consider the Department of Education a huge waste and part of the education problem the US is currently facing.
    Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    The FDA would be better as something like the BBB. If I want to seek their advice, I can, but they can't force me to agree with their views.

    I would vote for him over Obama, but that's not saying much.

    Sounds like something Obama would say. But at least Paul is not for growing the government.

    Obama shares your view - a progressive view on our role in the world. Obama is also is basically is saying the same thing McCain/Bush was saying about the war on terror.
