What I Like Best About Ron Paul
   
The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

That man will suck every last morsel of life out of the Republicans and cause each and every one of them to waste even more money trying to clean up the mess which is their Party.

Bwahahahahahahahahahah

Go Ron Paul!

With the billions spent on elections it seems only natural that certain candidates are run only "for effect". The lessons learned from Ross Perot and Ralph Nader can be applied to any party and there is plenty of money out there for games of this type.
I think the first example of this was the Ed Bradley(?) campaign in 2000. Algore was the presumptive candidate but needed some "competition" for him to run roughshod over and look good. Sort of a "political palooka" if you will. Algore was viewed as having the personality of a tree, so I'm certain Bradley was run by the party to make Algore look more lively, human and Alpha-Male like.

Libertarians the likes of Ron Paul are as idealistically naive in their search for utopia as were Marx and every other socialist.
Human nature will not allow any of their govenmental and civil systems to work.
