Just another damn Republican?

The Paulians certainly are capable of a circular firing squad.

You get the feeling that some of them are in the more-pure-than-thou camp which won't ever exceed 10% even in the GOP. When you declare that "Only Ron Paul is pure enough for us", you are essentially supporting a cult figure, not engaged in serious party politics.

Politics is ultimately about getting someone elected. If you are too ideological and counter-cultural, you disqualify your movement from influencing outcomes altogether, other than by playing spoiler in primary elections (libertarian Republicans) or in the general election (the Libertarian candidates). This does sometimes appear to help elect Democrats. And there have been elections where it seemed the Libertarian candidate got some help just to drive down the GOP vote tally and elect a Dim in a district or state that would otherwise likely elect the Republican.

Btw, who isn't faking us out?

I think we're being set up for a Bigfoot Presidency.

Good list...however in your pic, Israel-firster Paul should be wearing a yarmulke.

“Truth is treason in the empire of lies.” - Ron Paul
Americans who have no experience with, or knowledge of, tyranny believe that only terrorists will experience the unchecked power of the state. They will believe this until it happens to them, or their children, or their friends.
