    Ron Paul has been more antiwar than any Democrat, save Dennis Kucinich.

    If we on the Left are going to walk around calling antiwar Rightists and Libertarians wackjobs, we're going to have a hard time pulling in a strong enough majority to end this war.

    I don't support Ron Paul for President- or anyone else, for that matter- but I salute him as a man who stands by his principles.

      Our coalition building doesn't mean supporting their inane ideas, it means finding common ground where it exists on specific policy proposals. The idea that coalition building requires us to vote for a libertarian Republican is simply idiotic.

      I don't care that he stands by his principles - his principles are wrong. THAT is what counts.

        ...insult your coalition partners by calling them wackjobs.  

        While most of our precious Democrats have been hemming and hawing about the war, Ron Paul opposed the Iraq war it FROM THE BEGINNING.  His support for complete withdrawal now is UNCONDITIONAL.

        I'd like to leverage all of his supporters to help end this war.  How about you?
