I dont get why everybody wants Ron Paul. He's anti-education, anti-abortion, and thinks global warming is fake. The only thing I could find i agree with him on is 420 bl4z3 it up. That won't make him a good president. Idk just my opinion

He's not anti-education, he just thinks it should be left up to the states. Public schools are already mostly managed at the state level, and he doesn't think we need a Department of Education at the federal level.

His stance on abortion is not unreasonable. In fact if you examine the pro-life stance in general, you'll find that there's valid reasoning behind it. Most pro-lifers, including Ron Paul, believe abortion is literally murder and that the unborn have a right to life. Given that premise, it's perfectly reasonable to want to ban the practice, because nothing short of self-preservation (a medical emergency, in this case) can justify murder of an innocent. Of course you can challenge the premise, but that's a rather difficult debate to have because there's a lot of uncertainty involved.

As for the global warming thing - well, that typically isn't very high on people's list of priorities, anyway.

global warming is THE most pressing problem humanity is facing and the only reasons people do not combat it are big oil propaganda and denial ('if i don't see it, it isn't there'). the poor countries are being buttraped by global warming already and it's only a matter of 50-100 years until even the first world will be in serious danger. by that time, it will be most likely too late to stop it from getting completely out of control so if we do not act yesterday, it is questionable if humanity will even witness the year 3000. and then you get a wacko like ron paul denying it....

We have more military spending than the next 26 highest countries put together. We could certainly cut back at the very least.

the thing that makes ron paul so attractive is that he is honest. he's a lunatic but at least he goes where his conscience is and not where the money is.

So... just because he is honest you'd feel okay having a lunatic run your country? o.o
