Anytime Ron Paul's name comes up on the internet outside of his supporter's radar, the comments are spiked. Republicans mock his isolationism and hands-off approach to social issues. Democrats take swings at his economic ideology and his racist past. Seems like the only place this guy can catch a break is within the confines of his own forums, where the userbase is entirely comprised of conspiracy theorists and human spam. I find that most the bias against him is ignorant. Here are my answers to the shit most commonly flung his way. Ron Paul's economic policy involves ending welfare and medicaid, which will throw the country asunder. Paul says that the very last thing the government should cut is support for the needy. The only welfare agency Paul would axe is Housing and Urban Development. From my own personal experience living smack in the middle of one of the largest urban epicenters in America, I can attest that HUD is a corrupt organization which allows their gang-affiliated agents to commit legal government-sanctioned burglary against innocent poor families. HUD needs to be put down. Other agencies Paul wants to cut are the Department of Energy, Department of Commerce, Department of Education, and the Department of the Interior. None of those have shit fuck to do with food stamps or medicaid. TL;DR: Haters pigeonhole Paul with the most sinister of libertarian views. Ron Paul writes racist newsletters and wants to end Affirmative Action. The racism in question were a few lines that appeared in a spin-off newsletter written and managed by someone else while Paul was busy being a doctor. The few lines that were considered racist are less than a fraction of a percent of his entire catalog, which spans a few thousand pages long. In over a thousand hours of video footage of Ron Paul delivering speeches, nothing he has ever said could possibly be interpreted as racist. Other, more informed voters, have qualms with his stance against Affirmative Action. This is the law that makes it so BLACK ONLY toilets don't exist. These qualms are unfounded as Paul does not wish to end the concept of affirmative action, but instead take it off the federal books and make it a state issue. In 2012, I have serious doubts any state would take up the offer of bringing back institutionalized racism. TL;DR: Real niggas support Paul. Since EDF leans to the left, I'm not going to bother addressing the right-wing resentment of his foreign policy and his who-fucking-cares stance on all social issues. I'm sure most of you are in agreement with him on those. What I will say though, is that he garners just as much hate from neocon and evangelical republicans as he does from liberal democrats. So there you have it. If you disagree I think you are a fucking moron.
