"When the Republican establishment is going to be coming after Ron Paul, I thought it is my duty to come to his aid," Sorenson said, announcing his endorsement for the Texas congressman during a rally at the Iowa State Fairgrounds.

So he jumped from a loon to a bat shit crazy loon. Sounds like a smart move to me.The timing of death, like the ending of a story, gives a changed meaning to what preceded it. -Mary Catherine Bateson-

Ron Paul is crazy...crazy like a fox. Nick, you need to jump off the mainstream media bandwagon and do some independent research. Everybody interested in maintaining the status quo is scared to death of Paul because they know he's right. And even scarier is the fact that what he's saying is gaining traction and he's gaining popularity. He was just a sideshow - a joke - last election. Now people have to take him seriously, and so the smear campaign is in high gear.
He's the only one who's different, and that's not to be admired in Washington. It makes you and regular Joes feel uncomfortable because if he's right, then what we've been told by everyone who's supposedly smart is wrong. We've been hoodwinked and our egos can't deal with it. But we have to deal with it...otherwise it's game over.

If you don't mind society being set back 100+ years, then go ahead and vote for the guy. I, on the other hand, would never consider voting for him.The timing of death, like the ending of a story, gives a changed meaning to what preceded it. -Mary Catherine Bateson-

On a side note here though, I like Ron Paul. Yes, he's not perfect, and who honestly is? If you were told someone is the perfect candidate than they are just gullible and brainwashed.
The point here is that I agree with a majority of his ideals and furthermore he is far more promising in my opinion than any other potential candidate this time around just as he was last round.
I can only hope people research for a change and stop just believing what is fed to them via news outlets. (I am not referring to anyone here specifically, just the masses in general)Main PC: AMD FX-8350 / 16gb DDR3 1600 / AMD 7970GE 1200mhz Core & 1600mhz Mem / Win7 Pro 64bit

I impressed with the fantasy world you've created where you know exactly why he makes people uncomfortable "because they know he's right".
What makes me uncomfortable is that there are these wackadoos prattling on about how he's right about things like abolishing the EPA. But when called on the carpet and asked why that's right, they clam up and disappear.
Even absent tort reform which would cripple it further, the idea that somehow the free market and lawsuits would reduce pollution is non-defendable to the nth degree.
Someone has been hoodwinked, and it isn't me.
So, Bingo, if you want to demonstrate that your concept of everyone is so scared of Ron Paul because he is sooooOOOOooooOOOOooooooooOOOOOO right is correct, you can start by explaining to me how this free market approach to limiting pollution via lawsuits works.
And/or if you want, follow up with me on your specific problems with the EPA (those which you felt so strongly about in the thread in which you were schooled on the CAFE standards... those things you also felt so strongly about but apparently didn't understand):
Take yours. Specific examples of the problems you feel are caused by your perception? You have taken a very strong position, but you've built it on a foundation of mushy, empty rhetoric. I am pro-recycling, but this same nonsense you keep rolling out is getting stale.

So if the EPA fails in its mission, who do I write my letter to? Who from the EPA do I vote out next election?

Do you think being good caretakers of the environment is high-priority for politicians in any personal meaningful way? Other than harvesting votes.

Toad points out EXACTLY why you don't "vote them out next election."

Why is dissolving the existing dept and others so bad? People get layed off all the time. It can always be re-instituted via Congressional approval.
