The fruit of his loins is in Senate so his awful ideas live on, they're just spouted from underneath a poodle toupe.

Shaggy_C: GAT_00: RON PAUL is somewhere between Grandpa Simpson and Time Cube on the relevancy scale. Crazy old man who doesn't know a damn thing about anything but somehow has millions of deluded fans who hang on his every word like a cult.

"Doesn't know a damn thing"? He has a very strong understanding of the federal reserve system and various economic theories, particularly the Austrian school. .


This is the equivalent of saying "He's a great doctor, particularly in the fields of phrenology and leech application".

nekom: Yet he gets more publicity than someone such as, say Jill Stein, who has a completely reasonable left wing platform.


But you don't see a sh*t load of Redditors running around shouting "JILL STEIN" do you?

Now he can go back to his chosen field of refusing to give women abortions.

Stoker: The article calls him a Libertarian. He's a Republican at heart and registry.
If he wasn't, he would have endorsed Gary Johnson "for the cause".
Two time partisan quitter.


Gary Johnson was a Republican who was a two-time partisan quitter. Lost the primary, went Libertarian.

Their goal is to steal votes from the democrats, it is uncertain if their outcome is more that, or more the opposite.

Oppose the auto bailouts and watch mysteriously as manufacturing infrastructure permanently shifts to an asian country where their government is bailing out their auto industry.

Also, Mitt MAY not have lost as many points as he did over the auto industry if he hadn't lied so goddamn farking much about it. He is lucky he got a MI or OH vote at all after the final Jeep lie.

I can respect the solution of "fark everyone let the market sort it out" as a preferential alternative to government-assisted regulatory-capturing monopolies ruling the country. What I can't respect is when the proponents of such a solution are the first in line to support the latter anyways; something the Republicans have shown themselves to be right on top of every single time they get power.

Health care is the simplest example. It very obviously doesn't function well without regulations, but they don't deregulate it. Instead they give us part D. It's costs are hidden when its attached to businesses, but they don't care about that. Their states' rights attitude falls apart when they want one state to be able to sell insurance to the other 49, thus taking away their regulatory abilities, as well as any hope of transparency to the consumer. They can't even get on board with a health care exchange.

These people understand jack and shiat about the free market and are just a cobbled together mix of robber barons and an ignorant poor who skipped their history classes. Then they all get together and scream free market at us despite not having a clue what the invisible hand even is, how it functions, what externalities, what a tragedy of the commons is, etc.

fark that bullshiat, and Ron Paul and his gold standard can suck my balls.

Quickly


Where is the fun in that? This guy needs to go away slowly, followed by a huge marching band.

Paul said Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney "was hit because ... one issue he was correct on, he opposed the [auto industry] bailouts, and the people in the Midwest voted against him: 'Oh, we have to be taken care of.'"

fark you, Mr. Paul. That wasn't just about certain people "wanting to be taken care of." It was a measure to stop our economy, as in the U.S. economy, from completely melting down.

"Doesn't know a damn thing"? He has a very strong understanding of the federal reserve system and various economic theories, particularly the Austrian school. There's nothing wrong with his views from a conceptual framework, but they don't work in a world where the United States is depended upon for both economic and military security worldwide. If he were a candidate in say, a Liechtenstein or Monaco, his ideas would be quite compelling.
