    To bad some of his ideas are so off the wall. He’s about the only honest policitian in Congress.

  2. osbjmg says:

    It’s telling that he is seen as radical or off the wall – just chock full of logic. I think you have to have strong and sometimes even extreme representatives to move policy just a little bit in the right direction though.

  3. WFTA says:

    He’s as crazy as a s%^&house rat. He voted to extend the Bush tax cuts so anything he says about the deficit and the debt is total hypocrisy.

  4. kirbypuckett says:

    He wants to give greater tax cuts and reduce government programs. This will reduce the budget. There’s no hypocrisy in that. Our tax system is insane and the number of government programs is worse. If government programs were cut, that would go a long way to fixing the deficit

    Ron Paul said the Affordable Care Act would create 16,500 armed IRS agents . . . read the rest . .

    “16,500 armed bureaucrats coming to make this program work. If it was a good program and everybody liked it, you wouldn’t need 16,500 thugs coming with their guns and putting you in jail if you didn’t follow all the rules.”

    I find the fact that people listen to him at all really disturbing.

  6. BusSchDean says:

    He has said things that others would not/could not say — truthful things. But his canary role seems limited by his own inconsistencies. Ayn Rand was an author not a prophet. Nor was Keynes a prophet.

  7. Greshams-law says:

    Personally, I think he’s great. If I were an American I’d vote for him in a heartbeat. Europe is devoid of such free-thinking politicians.
