2. Here is the unsettling motherfucking truth. Hold on to something sturdy as I tell you:
Edited on Wed Oct-12-11 12:39 PM by Poll_Blind
The reason why Ron Paul gets played both in conservative and liberal circles is because he is one of the few politicians who will absolutely tell the unadulterated, unvarnished truth about such issues as the failure of the Iraq War, our military adventurism in general and the real reason why Al Qaeda attacked us on 9/11- which, by the way, is the reason bin Laden/Al Quaeda said they attacked us. Not the "We must destroy them because of their bluejeans and freedom!" bullshit.

The majority of his ideas are odious to say the least but the fact that he will plainly speak about some matters which few politicians in Washington have the political guts to causes him to receive otherwise undue interest from voters.

Here's the kicker: In a politically healthy America, an asshole like Ron Paul would be lucky to get his ass voted into a position as a state senator but because there is so much wool-pulling going on in Washington, anyone who is actually calling a spade a spade about such major issues as I stated in the first paragraph gets the attention of voters and someone who actually has a clue and has the strength to be bold.

What they mostly don't get is he has some absolutely uncontroversially correct ideas and a whole boatload of less-explored, extremely sickening ones.

Ron Paul only floats to the top like this because the people who should be making the same bold statements about the state of things are too fucking afraid to.

If Ron Paul ever gets elected president, America will become an unrecognizable corporate jungle- but if he does, it's likely because people were suckered in by his plain speaking on certain issues which most voters know they're being lied to on.

Ron Paul is a cancer which grows in political environments like ours. If we had a politically healthier country, his kind (I guarantee you) would never get the kind of attention he has. Ever.
