    Ron Paul would be a disastrous president. Not because he is simple-minded enough to believe that evolution is false, but because he is simple-minded enough to believe that Ayn Rand knew the answer and that the U.S. or any other country can essentially go back to isolationism.

    It would be entertaining to watch the legislative branch try to deal with a White House they don’t understand, though.

    • Daniel says:

      Ah, the typical Republican talking points.

      There is a difference between non-interventionist and isolationist.

      Don’t be scared. You’ll be okay without the government telling you how to troll.

      Nice. No facts, just empty, baseless insults.

      Non-intervention is self defense and not empire-building. Intervention is not self defense and empire-building. Neither is isolationism. Why is that so hard for you to understand?

    • Giovanni says:

      For the one millionth time – Non-intervention is self defense without overseas regime change, preemptive war, nation building or dictating foreign affairs not relevant to national defense. It is a policy of self defense only, trade, diplomacy and traveling with other nations.

      Pick out the isolationism part for me, please?

      The only simpletons who have some serious reading comprehension problems. I don’t know how many times you guys need to be told. You’re hopeless, Andy.

      • I agree, a Ron Paul presidency would prove disastrous if he were able to carry out all the reforms he desires. I appreciate his sincerity and his will to unflinchingly fight for what he believes.

        However, his policies on disbanding regulating bodies that are absolutely required to maintain a high standard of living are foolish. If you think corporate power is bad now, without those regulating bodies fighting in the legislative and legal trenches for our safety and rights, their power would be downright deplorable. (And if you don’t think corporate power is bad, you probably are a corporation, since corporations are peepul, ya?) There have been “free market” “libertarian” laboratories and microcosms set up throughout history and all have ended badly.

        His ideas of dismantling governmental bodies that protect minority rights are also pretty bad.

        There are a lot of topics that this graph doesn’t represent. It’s very misleading in that way. I’m not for Obama and I’m definitely no Republican.

        Nuff said for now.

  2. Garrett says:

    Seems pretty simplistic in its presentation. While Obama has been by no means a good president, this simply takes all but one of Paul’s good views and ignores the rest. He is rather zany, his brand of extreme neolibereralism would be fundamentally disastrous for the nation, his views on the history of the nation are repeatedly incorrect, his religious views cloud his libertarianism, and seriously, it seems like a joke, but not believing in evolution is a big deal.

    • Daniel says:

      So he’s somewhat of an agnostic,? willing to admit that we do not know, but we have the freedom to believe in what we want and what makes sense to us.

    It’s refreshing to see a political viewpoint on here that isn’t blatantly liberal and democratic

    Anyone arguing that Ron Paul is better than either Obama or even Dick Cheney for domestic civil liberties or for the health of people in other countries is getting scammed. His foreign policy will kill more people than any military action taken by the US in the last 40 years and his civil liberties platform makes the Patriot Act look like the 4th amendment.
