Washington State GOP: Bringing back the crazy


While pundits and voters are begging that Hillary concede her party's nomination many forget the one candidate who's still seeking the highest office in the land and that is Ron Paul. Often referred to as Paultards, most of his supporters make even the folks backing Hillary look sane. Still I enjoy his campaign if not only just to laugh at his followers frothing at the mouth when discussing issues such as the trilateral commission and 9/11 conspiracies.

Even though his candidacy seems now like a footnote in this long, sad primary race my home state's Republican party seems eager to offer him 40% of the delegates in the state's GOP convention today. Even though McCain has a huge margin and will obviously take the nomination without contention the Paultards won't give up the good fight.

I'd like to go to one of these conventions actually and see what it's like for people to discuss important issues such as wide stances and the best underground brothels.

Even though I consider Paultards to be as loony as Sylvia Browne followers I actually find myself on the same side as him with his Libertarian values on social issues, but sadly the fanbase for that ideology is batshit. I guess that says a lot about me doesn't it?

"Our country's founders cherished liberty, not democracy." - Ron Paul

Libertarianism is based on some really great concepts. It's the crazy places Libertarians go from that base that is the problem.

People like Ron Paul will never get elected into any sort of real power because the idea of downsizing the government will never fly. The government employs so many otherwise unemployable people that it is actually more efficient to have them employed doing minimal work than it would be to have them all on welfare.
So sure, some of his ideas and platforms make sense, but in practice, it would only create larger social problems.
And as for Ron Paul himself, I think he simply reminds too many people of Ross Perot.

He is so interesting and not mainstream that he has absolutely no chance. Such a shame.

we have a pretty left wing office. someone brought to light an online survey where you put down your beliefs on various issues and how important it is and the resulting matrix tells you which candidate most fits your views. Prior to the quiz about all you heard was Obama fans calling Hillary fans "too conservative" and "pandering to the right wing" and vice versa...yes, they are that far left here.
Anyway, the results of the quiz? Almost every one of them, the candidate who most represented their issues and strength of importance on those issues was Ron Paul.

Hilarious.
