    But that was just the first thing that came to mind. Most of his ideas were like that. Just disband all the different departments and let the states govern themselves? If Kansas wants to teach Creatism as fact, that's OK? If Maine wants to ban all guns within it's border, there's no issue with that? Sorry, he had a lot of big ideas and no real plans on how to implement them or deal with the aftermath. And the free market? No regulations?

    I'm glad he has respect for sticking to his guns and not compromising. That's something unique to him. But he has never been close to the White House. His son has a better chance, and that's because he is turning into a FoxNews Lunatic...

    Ron Paul doesn't run for president to win. He runs to promote issues. That gives him the latitude to say whatever he wants but also ensures he never sniffs the nomination. He knows that and accepts it. To judge all candidates by his standard of candor is comparing apples to oranges. Sure it's technically the same race, but a world class distance runner from Kenya and a 43 year old dock worker who are both in the Boston Marathon are also running in the same race. Technically. Hardly the same thing, though.

    Our political system rewards few points for honesty. Therefore it engenders little honesty. As long as there are people ambitious enough to crave power there will be people willing to find out what behavior the system does reward... and do that.
    You can make the argument that our currency is now backed by oil but it still is all based on faith in the US economy.

    Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison exploded during a live interview with Sean Hannity on Tuesday, calling the Fox News host the "worst excuse for a journalist I've ever seen" and a "shill for the Republican Party."
    The Minnesota congressman was on the program to discuss President Barack Obama's remarks on the sequester when he launched into a tirade aimed at Hannity, who had said "The president is more concerned with fearmongering than finding a solution to the problem he created."

    "Quite frankly, you are the worst excuse for a journalist I have ever seen," Ellison told Hannity, who said he couldn't hear him. "You heard me."

    Ellison then accused Hannity of "yellow journalism."

    "Every journalistic ethic I've ever heard of was just violated by you," Ellison said. "For you to say the president is to blame here is ridiculous."

    When Ellison called Hannity a "shill" for the GOP, the Fox News host tried to correct him. "I'm a registered conservative," Hannity said. "Keep ranting."

    Ellison did, and Hannity eventually ended the interview.

    "Congressman, you are a total waste of time," Hannity said. "We're moving on, because our audience deserves better."

    Hannity got Ellison to play his game. Hannity gets ratings acting that way. What benefit did Ellison get out playing Hannity's game?

    Hannity acted like Hannity. Was Ellison acting like Ellison? I'm not familiar with him so I don't know if he always comes across as a raving lunatic.

    Ron Paul was on Leno talking about the environment. He said there’s some that Libertarians aren’t as interested in it as they should be:



    Besides, you really think he’d just be like, “yea we’re just gonna let that sit there”. Those are not the type of regulations he’s talking about.

    He’s against monopolies. That’s one of the reasons he wants to end the federal monopoly on the post office to deliver mail. He says there should be free-market competition.

    “In an interview on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Paul said he favors ending the United States Post Office legal monopoly on first class mail delivery by legalizing private competition”.

    Like what? What other statements? I hardly think appearing on FoxNews makes you a FoxNews lunatic. Here’s Obama on FoxNews.
