Ron Paul Hate by BlameThe1st Ron Paul Hate by BlameThe1st
Anti-Ron Paul Sticker from Zazzle.com: [link]

Even though Barack Obama has failed to end the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, started military conflict in Libya, continuously extended the Patriot Act, authorized the assassination of American citizens, called for the prosecution of the growth and distribution of medical marijuana, created an economic stimulus that failed to stimulate the economy, and bailed out the banks and auto industries, Democrats would still vote for Obama rather than Ron Paul—even though he has opposed all of the above!

The reasons they have for hating Ron Paul are trivial at best. They argue that he is a Republican, even though he’s the sanest one in his party, and more anti-war and pro-civil liberties than any Democrat—including Obama! They argue that he doesn’t believe in evolution, which isn’t shocking in a country where only 39 percent do. They argue that he doesn’t believe in separation of church and state, even though he has opposed faith-based initiatives. They argue that he has “insane” and “radical” ideas like returning to the gold standard (because our current fiat currency is fairing so well!) and allowing states to set their own laws on abortion, gay marriage, and drugs—an idea based upon the Tenth Amendment.

In the end, there really is no excuse for not voting for Ron Paul. No one could reasonably compare Obama and Paul and decide that Obama was the better choice, unless, of course, they were the youthful ideologues who truly believed in his message of “Hope and Change”—even though the past term has seen very little hope or change. Of course, one can always give Obama another four years to see if such hope and change will eventually come about. My question is: can America survive for that long?

Well i'm personally more indifferent to Ron Paul than against him. I still find so areas of his beleifs and polcies to be questionable such as the removal of Sepeartion of Church and State, His Pro Life stance and statement of overturning Roe V Wade and questionable history with race and my usual distrust in Big Business and Government puts me at odds with most of his economic polices.

However putting personal issues aside when it comes to  brass tax, he actually sticks to his prinplces and sticks to his guns and never backs down or compromise what he beleives in. He's a bit crazy,even you have to admit that  but compared to braniwashed drones on both parties and actually fights against abuses of civil liberites, fights against the pointless drug war, opposing his parites Partitot Act which was then extended by Obama and going against government bailouts so i can put aside the fact he's a bit nutty.

I have to disagree with the illegal immigration bit because mr Paul seems to want open borders allowing more illegals to come in, either that or I misunderstood him when he said "open borders"
I also find this a bit hilarious which is basically saying if you disagree with Ron Paul, your a terrible person even though you say hate you really mean disagree

Did it ever cross your mind that while some might agree with a couple of things Paul is advocating, such as being anti-war, might disagree with some of most of the other things he stands for?
It's as stupid as saying that if you love Ron Paul you must hate the separation of church and state etc.

Because he realizes that his followers can't see that the state he wants to create will only make the "%1" more powerful. 

TruthOut and the One People's Project have done a lot of research on the Paul cult (IMO)

One People´s Project still exist?

Governement controled by corporations? Easy, make the governement even bigger, big enough to end corporate control.
As to trust that governement using that extra-ability to end that corporate control instead of reinforcing cronyism and corporate welfare even more? Well, politicians and judges said taht would be the case, so it must be true. Failproof plan.

And those who want "smaller government" are those who seem to want a government of, by and for the corps and %1. 

Try watching "Moyers and Company" on PBS, or listen to The Rick Smith Show

And those who believe in bigger governements are clearly the fools of the banking cartels that are effectively these governements...

Same banks that are artificially increasing the wealth gap with their inflationary policies.

Let me get this straight:

"allowing states to set their own laws on abortion, gay marriage, and drugs"

So although he may oppose abortion, He acknowledges that the Ninth and Tenth Amendment allows the states to create and uphold an abortion law that may be different from his own view.

His wikipedia article even states that:

"In 2005, Paul voted against restricting interstate transport of minors to get abortions."

He also allows people to get contraceptives, As long as they pay using their own money.

============================

Frankly, I also notice that his reasons for being pro-life sound like he really cares for the fetus, Even after it is born.

Most pro-lifers simply use the fetus to promote themselves, Once it's born, They don't care.

They just wanted a trophy.

Ron also seems like the person who can forgive anyone for aborting a fetus.

Whilst most pro-lifers become very, Very hostile towards anyone with a pro-choice opinion, Threatening to hunt them down, Torture them, Rape them or worse.

And get this, Some of them are actually lefties.

I have the feeling that people who calls themselves pro-life or pro-choice unwittingly tells more about their personality/attitude than their positions on the question.
Feelings are not always correct, thou.

The phrase, "Don't judge a fruit basket by it's bad apples." rings in this sense.

Some of these guys can't.

Corporatism is a hybrid between capitalism and socialism, which is good to my opinion.
i am AGAINST the 100% free market, all small shops and companies get bought by the bigger companies which is unfair because they concurate the heck out of them.Actually i prefer to go to the bakery instead of getting my bread in a great shopping mall. diversity is a good thing! the free market is the whole cause of the crisis, the big bosses can fire people without caring about their people getting unemployed and the money they make only goes to THEMSELVES. The free market is a good thing because with that we can build our own luck, but i insist the companies give at least 30% of their profit to the STATE to do what the state is meant to do: Caring for its people and to keep people employed,healthy and to secure their good wellfare.

People who refuse that are selfish snobistic pricks to me,weither you are rich or poor we must remember 1 thing: a nation is made by the people who build it, and as an inhabitan of the country you live in each must give to the state in order to ensure its greatness.
ONE people,ONE duty, ONE nation!

Seems like the hybrid of capitalism and socialism is more along the lines of fascism, where the state runs everything but still allows for private businesses, sort of like what happened in Nazi Germany.

well econimic corporatism is the economic policy of Facism in general, Nationalsocialism is a mix between racism and neo-darwinism, and Facism.Also a good thing about it is that it focusses on a country's own natural recources making it contribute less to global economy which means a country will be less dependent of other countries.

Cool to see i'm not the only brony that's interested in Politics and society around us XD

Consider that Ronald Reagan ended the Cold War. Hmmm... isn't so consistent is it?
