Ron Paul

He continues to poll about 20% here, so I thought I let you know my unscientific reading of that, based on what I hear people say at work (not everyone who works in a psych hospital is a social worker, after all) and a t church.  Half of that number are people who are pretty lined up with Ron on a lot of issues, who would vote for him any year.  Another half might dislike, even greatly dislike, one or another of his general positions, particularly on foreign policy.  But they are so determined that the government should shrink that they'll risk that, and they're voting for him in the primary.

That's not going to be me, but I entirely understand that reasoning.

I do too. But he is a genuine nut. And we need a central bank.

Il Duce made the trains run on time, Der Fuhrer got the Autobahns built. Can't say about Tojo, Kim Il-Sung, Mao, Stalin--haven't heard any good of them. Trotsky, neither. The Bad outweighs the Good by millions of tons.

Less than that for Ron, but there's still enough that the Good doesn't much matter. For me. Likely, for many.
