On Ron Paul 1

I just wish that there was a "Ron Paul Lite" out there (i.e., a person who shared Mr. Paul's positions on foreign policy and civil liberties but one who wasn't quite as draconian in terms of scaling back the social safety-net and regulations).

Don't worry Will, the statist power base of the republican party will insure Ron Paul's destruction.

And the willing liberal statist media will add to the fervor and hysteria. Misrepresentation and misunderstanding will rule the day.

Pick your statism. Red or Blue, it's all the same in the end.

Get used to it and enjoy. It has been preordained by the elite and the power hungry.

Les, I heard that Gary Johnson is dropping out of the Republican race (not that anybody was paying attention, obviously) and running as a Libertarian. I just might take a look at the fellow (he meets the definition of a Ron Paul Lite, right?).

Yes he does. But like I said, the powers that control the game will in one way or another render him completely and totally irrelevant, by design.

Besides (God forbid!)he smoked marijuana didn't he?

Johnson? Good riddance to the drug abuser.
