Ron Paul in my local Qatar newspaper

So I browse through my Qatari newspaper today, the Gulf Times, and look at what I see.  Essentially it is the same Eric Margolis write up that I've seen posted in a couple of American dailys, but I have to say this is the first time I've read something in Gulf Times that also appeared at Lew Rockwell, the infamous and influential market anarchy website that bears the slogan "anti-state, anti-war, pro market."

Republicans have also been suffering a series of lurid sex scandals that have made its members look both extremely hypocritical and awfully stupid.  Meanwhile, extreme right-wingers like the odious Rush Limbaugh and former speaker Newt Gingrich are vying to become the party’s voice.

Dr Paul and his fellow libertarians offer Republicans and Americans a real alternative to the dumbed-down Republicans and to the wildly spending Democrats whose expanded Afghanistan war and reckless economic policies are leading the nation into growing danger.

 

IMHO, our problems lie in Congress.  Have Mr. Paul as President would be great, but veto after veto would only incite the political establishment.  We need a radically different Congress.   People expect are "leaders" to do something in Congress and the only way they can show the people that they have done something is to bring home the bacon.

Too many of our representatives vote what they think is best or how they are paid to vote. They have forgotten about the group of people they are supposed to represent. This kind of thinking by our representatives will only do harm.

Ron Paul is a brilliant man. One would think that putting an ex-constitutional law professor (Obama) into office would give us a president who believes in and stands by the powers of office specifically deliniated therein...it apparently doesn't. I highly recommend Ron Paul's book, "A Manifesto," and hope all will consider breaking the ridiculous norms of our outdated two-party system and support Ron Paul for President in 2012.

 

Free Market. Don't tread on me.

The one thing that you have to love about Ron Paul is the fact that he is consistent.  No matter if you agree with him or not, you have to admire that.

@eldemonio,
"The one thing that you have to love about Ron Paul is the fact that he is consistent."
The only consistency in Ron Paul's political positions are his commitment to Austrian "economic theory", isolationist foreign policy and rants against the federal government. In other issues, he shifts between paleo-conservative, libertarian and neo-Confederate viewpoints.
However, you can't freeze your thinking and reject development of new thoughts, nuanced positions and so on. Being a slave of your ideas isn't a good thing.
