man this guy is a bizarre mix.




"Dr. Paul favors an immediate end to the Iraq war. "

"Paul voted against the 2007 appropriations bill for the Department of Defense because it included funding for the war in Iraq."


"He supports controls on immigration and increased use of visas for skilled workers. “Amnesty for illegal immigrants is not the answer,” Paul said in a 2005 article. "

"Paul opposes an illegal immigrant's right to taxpayer-funded welfare, including free medical coverage, food stamps and housing subsidies."

"He strongly believes in local control of education and voted against a federal government grant that provides Black and Hispanic colleges $84 million dollars."

"He supports school choice and favors the use of vouchers that parents can use for private & parochial schools."

" In 2000, Paul supported a Republican Liberty Caucus (RLC) resolution to abolish the Department of Education and return education control to states, cities and communities."

"Paul supports eliminating the estate, capital gains and inheritance taxes, opposes the marriage penalty and voted to increase the child tax credit."

" Paul supports a phasing out of the death tax and making President Bush's tax cuts permanent."


"Paul breaks with the Republican Party by opposing the use of the death penalty as punishment for violent crimes."

" In 2001, Paul voted to legalize the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes and opposes the federal government's ability to perform random drug tests on federal employees."




I think I disagree with him roughly 50% of the time.

that is an _insanely_ good ratio for a politician.


and he actually voted _against_ the patriot act.  that is _huge_

honestly, if all the politicians that did that would just line them up I would happily pay for a prostitute to service them.

Not so bizarre. He's a strict old school Constitutionalist.

OK, I had to look up the official definition of bizarre. "Very unusual." So, yes, bizarre since Constitutionalists are even more rare then politicians who have ever read the Constitution once.

Hey this guy ain't half bad. but is there really such a thing as 'marriage penalty'? Can't married couples always choose to file separately hence negating any joint "penalty"?

The thing is that if one member of a marriage makes much less than the other, then filing jointly is a big savings - a savings not available to single people.

So to be fair, if we eliminate the 'penality', we should also eliminate the 'advantage' as well.

Every time I see this guy come up in conversation, I can't help but read "Ru Paul" and think "This country is *so* not ready for that."

Sweet. Those city-boy yankees won't be able to keep prayer out of the school now. Go Ron!

Please explain how having a Federal Department of Education has had any effect at all on the school prayer issue.

(think about this carefully with respect to the current President and you should find your answer)

The prayer in school issue is the same as it always has been to constitutionalists, and the supreme court has upheld this position:

Teachers can not force students to say prayers.

Students are free to pray individually or in groups.
