12. He appeals to a certain segment of the population who do not play well with others.
Edited on Wed Dec-26-07 12:38 AM by nealmhughes
I rather fancy them living in a small travel trailer behind Grandpa's barn and ranting about their real estate empire, or having raised a 4-H calf once and thinking they deserve a seat on the Chicago Board of Trade for that endeavor. You know people who stocked up on ammo and beef jerky awaiting Y2K, only to fail to realize that in 1999 the 30 year mortgages issued after 1969 were already into the 2000s for payments due and nothing had crashed yet. You know, people who once played Dungeons and Dragons and had an extensive comic book collection until they read Ayn "Rhymes with Mine and Swine" Rand, then sold their vast libraries on E-Bay and now term themselves "entrepeneurs."

But I do have to say that while his supporters do not always "get" Dr. Paul, he is not an unknown quality: one knows or can at least usually presume reasonably well his position on everything.
