Why cherry-pick Paul's propaganda to make a point?

Given that Paul is a propagandist, how certain are you about his views on the war on drugs and how it will manifest?

He sold himself as anti war, but that is just a lie:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/100277632

Hyping this lunatic's positions as genuine only serve to whitewash the fact that he's a liar with evil intentions.

Are those using him as an examply seriously trying to imply a positive impact to ending the war on drugs and civil rights?

What's the goal of cherry-picking Paul's propaganda: to create the perception that he's genuine on some issues?

Does anyone think about the consequences of creating a false perception. Look at how many people bought into the cherry-picked myths.

If Paul had the opportunity to repeal the Cilvil Rights Act, would he allow blacks to smoke weed in the back of the bus?

It's clear that some people, not those who don't know better, value the right to smoke pot over civil rights.

If the likes of Paul were to create the kind of society he envisions, where would blacks, gays and the poor fit in?

Like everything else, cherry-picking Paul's mythical positions to envision a utopian society where drugs are legal requires ignoring the consequences of his other views.

How does his alleged anti-death penalty stance measure up against his charity or death position on health care?

Let's look at the numbers: There were less than 80 death penalty executions in the U.S. last year, the lowest in 40 years. Tens of thousand of people die each year without health care.

Which has a bigger impact on people's lives?

If Paul is such an anti-death penalty person, why has he made no mark or influence in his own state, Texas, the death penalty capital of the U.S.

In fact, why is he pandering to people who advocate a death penalty for gays?

He's a lunatic. Stop using his as an example.

Where's Rocky Anderson?

Ron Paul is crazy, but is he "crazy" crazy?

13. Evidently,

criticizing a racist, anti-gay propagandist is frowned upon. It's "odd."

3. Ron Paul scares me

Rebublicans scare me but that being said I am shocked how many people think he would be a good president. My husband saw him on the Tonight Show and said he couldn't believe the applause he received from the audience. Most of the country has no clue what he really stands for because they only listen to sound bites. They believe he is anti war but have no clue he would get rid of medicare, medicaid and civil rights.

11. Exactly

"They believe he is anti war but have no clue he would get rid of medicare, medicaid and civil rights."

There are a few prominent progressives that have helped to distort the picture.

4. Do you feel you're not getting enough traction in the other thread?

Do you like the cosy feeling of starting your own sandbox? Well I'll leave you to it. With best wishes!

7. Hmmm?

"Do you like the cosy feeling of starting your own sandbox?"

Hyping Paul is naive, dangerous and wrong. Rationalizing him is gullibility.

A racist shouldn't even be a top contender for President. That he roped in some progressives to believing he's genuinely anti-war, and have them hyping his propaganda is pretty pathetic.

He is where he is because some progressives don't seem to understand that.
