Never before in all our history have these forces been so united against one candidate as they stand today. They are unanimous in their hate for me and I welcome their hatred.-FDR

Ron Paul is Still a Nut

It's a surprise that Ron Paul would win the CPAC straw poll, he got 31%. Among mainstream conservatives, the guy is a pariah, I thought Palin would win, but she got only 7%! Ron Paul represents the nuts of the nuts and even if he does share some opinions with me, I can find any liberal politician that shares those opinions. A mainstream conservative would destroy this country and its government slowly, Ron Paul would do it in one second. Maybe that's why the conservatives suddenly have a boner for him at CPAC. But don't worry about him running, the dude is 74 and by 2012 will be older. Republicans gave one old fart a chance and he blew it. It will probably be Romney or Mitch Daniels as the darkhorse candidate.


  1. Albert,

    Which policy positions do you feel make Ron Paul a "nut"?


  2. Sorry for the delay Drew, I didn't see your question.

    Like I've said, all Republican and conservative politicians are nuts. Some areas me and Paul agree on like ending Nafta, ending wars, auditing the Fed, and drug legalization, but other liberal politicians favor those also, so Paul is not special there. Besides those issues, he is like the rest of the GOP except if he was president, he would eliminate certain government agencies quickly instead of slowly killing them, so he is a little more extreme there. I am also afraid of his followers, the Teabaggers came out of the Paulite protests during the 2008 election.
