NEW YORK (Frameshop) – Every time I force myself to watch the 2012 GOP field try to out whine one another in yet another televised “debate,” I cannot understand why Ron Paul is still on that stage. The other candidates may be unprepared and insincere, but Ron Paul spews nonsense–nonsense often laced with seemingly humane calls to end wars that he undercuts with promises to abandon the sick, poor, and elderly. Huge tracts of American government for the last 150 years are against the law? A monetary system not based on gold deprives people of liberty? Good lord this stuff is puerile hokum.
But then it occurred to me why people listen to him: because the media never takes the time to explain what will happen to this country if Ron Paul’s policies were enacted.
