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?

Then why did he argue that Edward Snowden should have a "reasonable sentence" (as opposed to what he deserves, which is a medal)?

Isn't Ron positive when it comes to corporatism?

No, he's against that too. Don't confuse corporatism with capitalism.

I don't  confuse the two. I just tought bechose he was a libertarian after all, I tought that libertarians supported corporatism, bechose the privatisation and all.

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.

If only people would see that Paul's aim is to create a corporate state.
Someone like Jill Stein (Green) would be a better choice

How can he be for a corporate state if he opposes the state to begin with?

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)
