    to Markos.  He makes the rules.  He "draws lines around what is and is not acceptable".  So is he not a liberal?

    •  quite the contrary (2+ / 0-)

      he doesn't organize posses to shut down criticism of particular politicians (again). He supports actual discussion, so far as I can tell.  Only the most vile of trolls seem to be banned after getthing literally hundreds of HRs.

      •  Sure he supports discussion. (7+ / 0-)

        But he does not support people using this site to advocate for Ron Paul. That's why he banned a few of them last week.

          but you will recognize that there is a big difference between discussing the points Paul has raised and supporting paul

          Of course, not surprisingly a large number of people seem to be willfully disregarding that difference in order to smear critics of the administration.  Again.  You'd think we'd finished with the witch hunts here, but you'd be wrong.

          •  How did "this administration" get into (5+ / 0-)

            this discussion?  This is about Ron Paul, his hideous policies, and people "willfully disregarding"  the fact that his policies are the stuff of nightmares.

            As far as "the points Paul has raised", he has nothing to offer beyond unbridled selfishness, from a macro to a micro level. Plus he's a crazy old coot with a fake eyebrow. But if this diary has not convinced you that Ron Paul is not the path to enlightened discussion, we will have to agree to disagree.

            •  Hmm. (0+ / 0-)

              I don't think that the targets of this witchhunt are suggesting that Paul is a good guy, only that he has said some things that the "left" ought to be saying, but isn't.  I am thinking you missed David Mizner's diary?  I don't think that Paul is a path to enlightenment exactly, but I do recognize that he is nevertheless correct on some points, for example that NDAA is an abomination.

              In response, what I see is an effort to try to bury that point by accusing people of vile motives instead.  Not a fan of that. We have seen far, far to much of that tactic here already.

            and using the fact that they are from Ron Paul as a point of advocacy is an INSTANT FAIL.  I support politicians like President Obama who use critical thinking and sound reasoning to reach their conclusions.  Every single position of Ron Paul comes from his insane philosophy and corrupted thought process.  That is plain scary.
