    One of my most passionate and outspoken Paul-bot friends is a very feminine young neo-hippie chick.   Burning Man, belly-dancing, herbal remedies, Sufism, sex-positive, gaia-consciousness...  and RON PAUL!

      ...is that Ron Paul will end the wars and legalize pot, the two policy matters at the top of any good hippie's wish list.  (OK, I kid, somewhat.  But you get the idea.)  They probably figure that the rest can simply be put off for a few years while they get these two things done that they've been waiting for for decades.  The idea that "the rest" has also been on the table for decades doesn't seem to occur to them.

      Hippies (and post-hippies like moi) want their rock'n'roll, and they don't know why they don't have it yet when it seems so little to ask for in the grand scheme of things (not realizing that this a crucial part of the "what kind of people we're going to be" question).  After a while we get desperate.  (DISCLAIMER:  I don't do "drugs" of any sort, unless you count alcohol.)

      The '60s were simply an attempt to get the 21st Century started early....Well, what are we waiting for? There's no deadline on a dream!
