No surprise.. He just said on Fox he would vote for the tax compromise even though it raises the estate tax because it could be worse..jeeze.. he has had a couple of weeks.

He voted against condemning North Korea in her unprovoked attacks on SK. He opposed censuring Rangel. He supported the hacker spy Assange both in tweets and in vote and even called for Assange to commit more criminal acts. On top of that, he even voted for Nancy Pelosi’s tax hike bill.

Maybe he is hoping gay marriage is legalized so he and Dennis Kucinich can make it official.

It’ll be curious how the barracks scheme avoids ‘gay rooms’, ‘bi-rooms’, and ‘straight-rooms’. There are still cases...probably 20 percent...where it’s NOT one guy per room. TDY stays in hotels will be the same way (I spent half my career sharing hotel rooms while on exercises).

Occasionally I thought just maybe I could compartmentalize Paul, ignoring some of his idiocy, while being glad he might give fits to the Fed and whatnot. But this really puts an end to that wistful notion. Ron Paul is a true and irredeemable POS. I hope he drops dead.

You’re surprised that Paul takes a vote that will help the Islamofacists? That’s really the bottom line result of this, after all... helping the Islamofacists by ripping the guts out of our military.

You’re surprised that Ron Paul loves the Islamofacists?

I’m not.

Cuz I find it hard to believe that Dennis The Dwarf was compensated for his like of height in any other ,,,er,,, physical,,,, attributes! This is the last guy on earth that deserves a tall redhead with a tonguestud!

This POS Ron Paul blamed America for 911 while the rubble was still smoking. Nothing else he says or does should surprise anyone. The folk in Lake Jackson Texas are also a bunch of flaming idiots to continue to send this @hole to Washington.

Yup.

ALWAYS KNEW RON PAUL WAS A FREAKING LUNATIC.

This buffoon always believed in a virtual end to military spending, specifically mentioned in the Constitution, and a head in the sand attitude to enemies of individual liberty who can reach out and touch the USA in minutes.

Maybe this should put to rest this ridiculous notion that he is such a “champion” of the Constitution. I read from other Freepers that this guy only votes against earmarked bills (that he loaded up with pork for himself, of course), only when he knows his vote won’t make a difference. Makes him look so principled. Yeah, right.

There is a “head shop” that we can see from the highway here in Austin that looks like “Ron Paul Revolution” headquarters. I’d bet that every head shop in America is a boiling Ron Paul recruitment center.

Exactly, you have to admire Ron Paul’s consistency as a libertarian. When are people going to realize that although libertarians and conservatives overlap in their views and values, they are not identical.

People admire Ron Paul’s courage and unbending nature until they realize he disagrees with them on several issues. You get what you get.

Is it Libertarian to blame America for 911?

Is it Libertarian to claim that 2 submarines can defend America?

Is it Libertarian to claim you defend the Constitution and tax payers while accepting millions in ear marks?

It is Libertarian to coddle 911 Truthers like Alex Jones and Cindy Sheehan?
