    I can't stand looking at him (Paul) but given the choice of voting for one of these other "Three A$s Holes" I will vote for Ron Paul.

    The Republicans DESTROYED themselves when they chose the old "Closet Liberal Democrat" Mccain.

    BILL COSBY FOR PRESIDENT

    Good, because McCain sucks. The problem is Obama and Hilary suck more than McCain.:bricks:

    Will Rush eventually anoint McCain?? As he promised he would anoint the next Republican Pres. Candidate... Paul will certainly not be anointed.

    Not all libertarians have the exact same principles. Some people think we're some monolithic group who are in step with every party plank, but I'm sure not.

    Barr is too much of an absolutist on states rights, IMO. For instance, he thinks states should be able to either legalize drugs or keep them criminalized. That position brings into play problems of inter-state commerce. What is legally trades, sold, and used should be consistently enforced between all states IMO.

    He also is in favor of the "Defense of Marriage Act" which is a blatant violation of civil liberties and libertarianism. He believes that states should either be able to legalize or ban same-sex marriage. I believe that all levels of government should stay out of the personal lives of adults.

    Of course, I agree with his criticism of Bush, the "war", and the Patriot act.

    I think he's a bit of a nut on some other issues. I wouldn't vote for him.

    As a (whichever) with (whichever) tendencies, I don't think Libertarians are monolithic. This is one of the reasons I don't see a Libertarian party really even existing.
    It's also why I asked what *you* thought of him.

    Frankly, he scared me when he was in Congress with an (R) by his name, and he scares me now. I just can't figure out why exactly.

    If Barr is on the ballot in Pennsylvania, I could vote for him, I pretty much agree with him on most issues, except Iraq.

    Ron Paul is the only logical choice... but Amerika isn't logical in the least.

    They love to be mesmerized by the tv flicker rate.
