I was on the Community of Faith Forum tonight and came across a "Ron Paul? Nah" thread. Below is my response:
I love Ron Paul. I love seeing him bring up the constitution in the debates. It's like bringing up Scripture when church people are debating. He has a "restoration movement" approach but with the Constitution instead of the Bible. Like Congress declaring war for instance. Anyway, I'm definitely leaning more Libertarian as the years go by. The Republican party is an ever increasing disappointment!
"Giving libertarians a bad name?"
I think he's bright and highly consistent and he's probably creating more interest in the Libertarian party too. He has 0 chance. The sheeple will continue to elect neocons or neocoms. More government & less freedom. Two wings on the same old buzzard (IMHO). So what will we get? It looks like McCain (Bob Dull #2) & Hillary (Clinton #2). I can't vote for either of these two. I say give the people the government they want because that's what they deserve! Here's to citizenship in Heaven!
