Before you criticize someone you should walk a mile in their shoes, that way when you do criticize them you'll be a mile away and you'll have their shoes.
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.

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.

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.
Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.

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