  •  Oh, absolutely. In fact I wonder why MrAnon thinks (0+ / 0-)

    … there's a danger of Crazy Uncle pulling in young liberal voters . . . voters in which election, exactly? The primaries are over.

    And a third-party run would likely hurt Romney much worse than it would the President.

    And yes, the Occupy movement is the way to go, IMHO. Tremendously farsighted — like most of the ideas originally seeded by Kalle Lasn and Adbusters.

    •  That's not the point (0+ / 0-)

      By supporting a Republican like Ron Paul (read: supporting, not simply saying "I agree with one or two of his positions"), you are saying that positions like favoring a repeal of the Civil Rights Act can just be ignored in favor of a handful of foreign policy positions that you support. This is despite the fact that there are plenty of progressive Democrats in the Senate and House who hold those positions. Progressive Democrats who all support President Obama.

      Republicans are far more socialist than Democrats. Just because they want to redistribute the wealth upwards does not make it any better.

      •  I thought I *was* saying, "I agree with one or two (0+ / 0-)

        … of his positions."

        I don't know how you get I am "supporting" someone I'm in the habit of calling "Crazy Republican Uncle."

          "Why are there progressives who support Ron Paul?"

          •  Ah, you thought I was saying, "*I'm* one of those (0+ / 0-)

            … progressives, let's all vote for Ron, blah blah" — whereas I thought I was saying, "Here's what counts as the usual explanation for that phenomenon."

            •  OK then (0+ / 0-)

              Glad this misunderstanding has been cleared.
