Look, I realize Ron Paul most likely will not be president. That however is not what concerns me when speaking out against this guy. He has somehow managed to turn my otherwise thoughtful, intelligent friends, into rabid supporters of his campaign. Does no one remember Reagan? He ran parallel platforms that Paul runs. Need some proof of the Run Ronnie Run relationship? Hear it from the mouth of the shithole himself....Ladies an Gentlemen....RON!
Compromised integrity in support of a candidate, is worse than blind support of a candidate. We need to hold ourselves accountable for the choices we make, and the idea we support.
Now, to clear this up. I am not a democrat, or republican, or libertarian. I am an anarchist with socialist tendencies. I do not give a shit who the puppet is this term, it is the control structure I work to stand against. So, then, why trash or support the puppets?
Well, when I hear my friend support an idea that goes against everything I know that friend to believe, I challenge it, as I would hope any friend or enemy would do for me. To quote the greatest punk band of the 90's, Propagandhi, "i'll call you on your shit, please call me on mine. Yeah then, we can make this shit hole planet better, in time
