Perhaps you can explain some of Ron Paul's other hypocrisies.

Why did spending in his county quadruple from 1999 to 2009? Why does spending in his district top the average per capita federal spending in 46 of the 50 states?

In 2010, when the Tea Party congress voluntarily decided to stop using earmarks, why was Ron Paul one of only 4 GOP congressmen to continue using them?

Why does he specify which contractor will get the earmark money? Why not use a more free-market solution, and let contractors bid on the job?

Why did he increase public transit spending in his own district (to the tune of $750,000) but claims to be against public transportation?

Why is he against FEMA, but demanded FEMA housing for those displaced by hurricanes in his own district?

Why did he critcise Tip O'Neill for riding around in an expensive government Lincoln Towncar, yet ended up crusing around in one himself?

Also - why did he call MLK one of his "heroes" in a recent speech, yet published a newsletter claiming MLK was a gay marxist pedophile?
