    You win some, you lose some.

    I don't know who the YAF are, but anyone who uses the phrase "current socialist presidential regime" can't be taken seriously.

    • Congrats to Ron Paul. Looking forward to casting my vote in the Iowa Caucus!
    • Ron Paul's non-interventionist views on foreign policy and defense are a breath of fresh air for American Politics.
    • Anyone who says Obama doesn't have socialist tendencies... is either willfully ignorant or woefully inept. Honest Democrats openly admit that Social Security, Welfare, Medicare, Obamacare, etc. are all socialist or at least quasi-socialist policies.

    Call me a Conspiracy Theorist but I don't know how anyone can refute that our system is now a corporatacracy and the public has no say in our presidential elections.

    And anyone who says a few socialist tendencies are automatically a bad thing is either willfully antagonistic or woefully ignorant.

    "Quasi-socialist" is a weasel-word phrase that doesn't mean anything. You continue to labor under the illusion that anything not purely capitalist must be socialist.

    The Obama administration is not socialist. The government has, since the beginning, made use of regulation.

    Hell, try to name any politician that would seriously act on cutting the defense budget: Ron Paul. I respect him for that.

    I think cutting the U.S. Defense budget is one of his good ideas, however one of Ron Paul's libertarian problems is he believes it's a God given right of owners of businesses open to the public to discriminate. He has tried to back tracked on this statement to make his position more palatable. Instead of sticking to his position (as wrong as it might be) wiggling around makes him look like a conniving politician who will say anything to get elected.

    You must be thinking of RAND Paul, not RON Paul. And I really don't think he back-peddled. He simply clarified. He still holds the same common-sense position as he did on day 1. But yeah, we're talking about Ron Paul.

    I stand corrected. I was thinking of Son, not Father. Actually I like Ron Paul more, although I don't know where he stands on discrimination.

    The same common-sense libertarian, constitutional, view as Rand Paul. Anti-discrimination personally, but an unabashed proponent of personal liberty and private property first and foremost. Like them, I proudly support the right of the Boy scouts to have only boys, a girl's volleyball team to have only girls, a African American dining club to only serve blacks, and a men's bar/restaurant to serve only men. The despicable racist business owners will go out of business soon enough, let them make a fool of themselves.

    I have voted for Ron Paul (L) for president before knowing he had zero chance to win. Not sure I would do the same for Ron Paul (R) though.

    If you're referring to gay marriage, he seems to be ok with it as long as 'they' don't force others to accept it. He's personally anti-choice and wants human life to be defined as starting at conception. These issues to be decided at the state level. Although I'm not clear whether he wants 'human life to be defined as starting at conception' at only the state level.
