    Is America getting a monarch?
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    I am not a fan of Ron Paul's politics, but you gotta admire the guy for his honesty and consistency, and that was a hell of a speech.

    I think hes nuts and has a third wheel whirling around in his head. If I consistently said there should be no law and govt and we should go back to the wild west and whoever draws the fastest wins, id be consistent and nuts

    That's why I don't like his politics.

    But what's cool about Ron Paul is he is very ethically consistent. I happen to think his political ethics are wrong, and in some cases, yes, perhaps they are also nuts. But he always uses due process, and his political philosophy is nearly perfectly consistent. A rare quality in a politician, and I wish I saw it in one I could agree with but I still respect him

    And in this case, I think he's right. Whether you agree with his extreme libertarian interpretation, a maintaining of checks and balances is something I think we can all agree on, and here he is right.

    Ron Paul is the only real Conservative remaining. Remember what Franklin said: "He who would trade liberty for some temporary security, deserves neither liberty nor security."

    The United Ceased to be a republic when the 17th Amendment was ratified.

    That as nearly 100 years ago.
