Video: Ron Paul & the Instruments of Tyranny

You can call him a kook if you want, but one thing you can't deny is that Texas Republican Congressman Ron Paul is fundamentally decent. And sincere. This little video reminded me of why I was so excited about his run to become the GOP's standard bearer:

He's a raving loony who believes in conspiracy theories and no sense of America's vital place in the world. He even thinks that the Civil War could have been avoided if Lincoln compromised with the secessionists, oblivious to the history of that pivotal event. His historical knowledge rivals that of most Ontarians and likeminded Canadians. Pathetic. Keep him away from others.

Good one Jaworski. Napolitano, now Ron Paul. Man, all you need is Alex Jones and you have the big three conspiracy theorists.

This might be too much to ask, but it would be nice if you could find another freedom loving person to idolize instead of this racist, conspiracy theory driven lunatic.

We need less neo-left or neo-right and more middle of the road, supported by the Constitution! Ron Paul in 2012... or sooner!

Paul, and his son, remind me of tele-vangelists, claiming to be have all the answers. In particular, he says that he'll return the US to the founders' intentions. The problem is that they left none, save perhaps that the country have a sound government which it clearly does. Sorry, he's a flim-flam artist and cannot be taken seriously.
