  •  I'm not worried about the Presidential race. (6+ / 0-)

    I just think that a number of people have expressed misconceptions about Paul's stances on a number of topics, and felt the best way to clear up such is simply to let the man and his strongest followers simply speak for themselves.

    The trifecta seems to be 'the drug war', 'civil liberties', and 'foreign military policy'.  A thankfully small number of folks onsite have been claiming his stances on those issues are 'superior' to various Democratic ones, but a closer examination of what Paul actually believes really shows that the people saying so likely had no idea what Paul actually believes and wants.

    •  Paul opposes the MIC from an (0+ / 0-)

      isolationist point of view...but frankly when it comes to foighting the MIC, we need all the support we can find. Ron Paul is never going to come close to the nomination, let alone the presidency. But his opposition to military spending should be taken seriously as an issue, rather than just shouted down along with the gold bug bulls@&$.
