The best and worst of Ron Paul?
Pauls not my first choice -- but he's only the anti-Christ if you are a statist. And to be frank, the Mane has more statists than most, so there seems to be a wee bit of hositility to Paul here. Maybe he's hitting the target, so he's getting more than his fair share of flak?
Even so -- curious to get folks take on the best and worst of Paul.
My impression of Paul. "The Best" He seems intellectually consistant. He seems like he is one of about 3-4 four folks out there who would likely shrink the size and the spending of the federal government. Thats a huge plus right now.
"The Worst" He seems less than supportive of support Israel, although I wont call him an isolationalist -- he might be living in the 18th century, and I worry that our country would be put at risk, as he attempts to apply 18th century principles to problems that include suitcase nukes, and biological weapons.
