Well, when it’s a choice between a Republican and a Libertarian, you can choose the selfish guy or… The selfish guy.
My video production professor aka my new favorite professor.
The poll found that 29 percent had a “very favorable” opinion and 21 percent had a “somewhat favorable” opinion, for a total of 50 percent. Majorities in the Iowa and South Carolina [Republican Primary] polls also supported the idea. So Paul is correct on the number — but way off on the description. This was not a “national poll” that shows that a “majority of the American people believe we should have a gold standard.” Instead, it was three polls in three states, with respondents from only one party — and even among this narrow sample, it only asked those who are active enough politically to be considered likely to participate in the upcoming primary. The survey was also commissioned by a group that supports the gold standard.

Ron Paul supporters need to register/change to the Republican party. I am NOT a Republican, I am a Libertarian and Ron Paul is the only candidate that I (and many others) seriously think has a chance to take on Obama. He wants to legalize drugs, gay marriage, minimize Federal government power, increase states rights, end the Fed, and end the War. About the states rights, remember that is it easier to influence governors and mayors than presidents and vice presidents. If you want serious change, vote Ron Paul.
Guys please reblog this! It’s incredibly important.

Actually… Ron Paul doesn’t support Gay Marriage. Check your facts.

He’s also a racist. And he wants to “legalize” drugs (all drugs) for the sake of “liberty,” not because our drug war is costly, harmful to minorities (and other countries and our economy), and to keep people out of jail needlessly.
ALso, when are we going to realize that the President doesn’t write law, Congress does.

No, it’s true that the president doesn’t write law but by your logic, we  shouldn’t vote for president at all. Also, he has said many times  before (look it up on Youtube) that people should marry whomever they  please and that government should not dictate who somebody should marry.  Personal liberty is a great reason to legalize drugs and he has also  said several times that it will be hugely beneficial to our economy and  get people out of jail who don’t deserve to be in jail. Have you even  listened to a Ron Paul interview?

How in the world did I say we shouldn’t vote for President? It’s a pretty damn important position, but we also need to temper our expectations and see that they won’t magically do everything they promised just because they were elected. It takes congress actually getting something done for the President to factor into law making.
Let’s just let these quotes speak for themselves: “Government is totally unnecessary for gay marriage laws.” (May 2011); “No need for Marriage Amendment; DOMA is enough.” (Sep 2007)
Yeah, I actually have, and the entire time I wanted to vomit. He has a one sentaence economic policy: “Blame the Fed.” It makes me wonder if he actually knows what the Fed is/does.
It’s funny that he said that he supports a lot of things, but his voting record says the exact opposite.
Let’s list a few OTHER things Ron Paul is for/against, se we can fairly judge him as a candidate:
Completely anti-choice. Says abortion in all cases is wrong and that is is murder. “(Human) Life begins at contraception.”
Amendment’s Mr. Paul is against: 16th, 
Pro-Gold Standard (because that worked out sooooo well last time)
Pro-DOMA
Voted YES on banning gay adoptions in DC. (Jul 1999) 
Has a 38% rating by the Human Rights Campaign
Voted NO on letting shareholders vote on executive compensation. (Jul 2009) 
Voted NO on enforcing against anti-gay hate crimes. (Apr 2009) 
Voted NO on $84 million in grants for Black and Hispanic colleges. (Mar 2006) 
Voted YES on barring EPA from regulating greenhouse gases. (Apr 2011) 
Voted NO on enforcing limits on CO2 global warming pollution. (Jun 2009) 
Voted NO on removing oil & gas exploration subsidies. (Jan 2007)(Contrary to what he has said on wanting to end such subsidies, so he is a confirmed liar, LIKE EVERY OTHER POLITICAN)
Rated 0% by the CAF, indicating opposition to energy independence. (Dec 2006) 
Signed the No Climate Tax Pledge by AFP. (Nov 2010) 
No EPA regulation of greenhouse gases. (Jan 2011) (We like to call that a contradiction.)
Supported tax incentives for US-based alternatives. (Sep 2010), BUT he has voted against Tax insentives everytime. (So, he’s a hypocrite)
I must say that Ron Paul is the one of the least crazy GOP candidiates right now, but let’s not pretend he is something he isn’t. Also, I’m not saying Obama, or any other Democrat, isn’t a hypocrite, or a liar (or what ever.) All politicans lie, but actions speak louder than rhetoric.
