  •  Ron Paul is Mad Max (7+ / 0-)

    Ron Paul is a crazy 1980s survivalist. That's why one of his bigot late-80s newsletters was called the "Ron Paul Survival Report".

    That's why he's a "libertarian": a corporate anarchist. His version of government has no jurisdiction over any acts of anyone except people in the government: it exists only to stop itself from existing. That's why his son, now a senator from Kentucky, opposes the Civil Rights Act: not out of admitted racism, but out of a preference the government not exist, even to interfere with racists. People with money and guns would have the power, with only the accountability that people with money and guns can force on them. It's corporate anarchy.

    That's why he's a gun fetishist. Your gun is supposed to replace the government once you've destroyed it.

    That's why racists love Paul. That's why militia people love Paul. That's why (plenty of ) Republicans love Paul. He's a crazy 1980s survivalist. Which was what people looked like a quarter century ago when they wanted to destroy the government to live in a corporate anarchy.

    Mad Max is running for president, and his name is Ron Paul.
