Ron Paul

Ron Paul Is Like A Eugene Mccarthy

a: Ron paul ~
b: a Eugene McCarthy

What: "I don't know about you but Ron Paul is like a Eugene McCarthy ( remember him?). I am so glad he is there, if only to speak a little truth to all these Republican droolers. I don't think he is a hypocrite at all!--that's why both the Democrats and the Republicans don't give him any credence. There is a lot of power in speaking the truth. I am sure they wish he would just go away."

Ron Paul

a: Ron paul ~
b: a really good financial analyst

What: "Other politicians come up with their plans, which they want to force on to the American people (and the rest of the world in many cases). Ron Paul is like a really good financial analyst. He takes a look at the present situation, looks for parallels in the past, and applies what has worked before to the world of today. He doesn't tell us what "should" work, but rather what "will" work based on human nature. Human nature has never changed - and it never will."

Ron Paul

a: Ron Paul ~
b: Reagan

What: "In a way Ron Paul is like Reagan. Reagan and the conservative movement in that era was considered fringe, hence unelectable. Not until the very late 70's did the conservative in the GOP had enough power to make changes to the party. Reagan was an outsider within the GOP but a benefactor of the conservative movement. This is what is happening right now in the GOP. It's like history is repeating itself."
