There is definitely a lot wrong with Ron Paul but coming from National Romney Magazine, I totally miss the point.

Your average Paultard probably applauds what Assange is doing.

To be fair (and you all know I am no Ron Paul fan) he didn’t vote for the tax hike per say. Pelosi’s spin on her little tax cut extention is voting against her way is a tax hike.

You can replace that with his voting against condemning North Korea’s attack on SK.

There are a lot of Ron Paul supporters in the Tea Party movement.

I think he has the potential to split the Tea Party vote in the GOP primaries.

I doubt it, I don’t see Paul being much of an issue.

This is horse$#!+. Paul voted for censure of Rangel. He voted for extending the middle class tax cuts. And he said that we can’t prosecute Assange for treason because he’s Australian.

Man!

Any one read what his rationale for the tax hike vote was?

I never saw it.

"Paul voted FOR the censure of the gentleman from Manhattan."

In the same way Kerry was for it, before he was against it.

Paul was part of the contingent that moved censure be reduced to reprimand. After that resolution failed, he then voted for censure.

He voted against Pelosi’s limited extension for only ‘middle class’, joining the Republicans demanding a full extension (I can’t believe I am defending Paul but right is right)..

Ron Paul wrote on his Twitter:
“Re: Wikileaks- In a free society, we are supposed to know the truth. In a society where truth becomes treason, we are in big trouble.”

I have not. He voted for the House bill that raised taxes on anyone making (I think) over $1M - could be wrong on that $1M, it may have been something more or less.

Thanks. There is often method to seeming madness in the legislature.

They need a complete hose down of the stinking house and start doing business there like honest reasonable people.

(not a criticism of Paul, but the whole institution).
