I don't know who you are, Mr. Holden, but this was an awesome post. And congrats on winning the Single Most Appropriate Use of the Word "Faggot" in the History of the Internet Award.

"You could tie me to a flaming faggot of marijuana stalks and I still wouldn't vote for Ron Paul."

This has to win quote of the month.

Also enjoyed this post. The far left's embrace of Ron Paul is gross and embarrassing.

That's why I embrace Obama 2012.
I like how the military can now round up US citizens without charges or trial.

I think we need to glass-parking lot Iran, even if it starts World War 3.

I like harsh drug policy's that target black people while the CIA ships in the cocaine and heroin so Wall Street can launder the profits.

I like corporate welfare, bailouts and a private bank printing our currency out of thin air at interest.

Obama 2012!

Yes, I’m willing to continue to have Muslim children slaughtered by covert drones and cluster bombs, and America’s minorities imprisoned by the hundreds of thousands for no good reason, and the CIA able to run rampant with no checks or transparency, and privacy eroded further by the unchecked Surveillance State, and American citizens targeted by the President for assassination with no due process, and whistleblowers threatened with life imprisonment for “espionage,” and the Fed able to dole out trillions to bankers in secret, and a substantially higher risk of war with Iran (fought by the U.S. or by Israel with U.S. support)...
...in exchange for...
...less severe cuts to Social Security, Medicare and other entitlement programs, the preservation of the Education and Energy Departments, more stringent environmental regulations, broader health care coverage, defense of reproductive rights for women, stronger enforcement of civil rights for America’s minorities, a President with no associations with racist views in a newsletter, and a more progressive Supreme Court.

Is that really how you feel? You're a fucking loon. I'm really curious how you're going to explain how fucked this country was to your children.

@ 5 Nice! And that's assuming Social Security and other entitlement programs like Medicare aren't a giant pyramid scheme that hasn't already been looted (even thought Paul has never said he would eliminate Medicare), or that Education and Energy Departments aren't totally corrupt and useless (the Department of Education has only existed since 1980, how's our public schools these days?), or that Paul would not uphold equal protection under the law to America's minority's, or that the racist associations to Paul haven't been blown widely out of proportion by an increasingly desperate, six corporation owned media.

@6, that was a quote from Glenn Greenwald. I get extremely frustrated by the number of people who, calling themselves Progressives/Liberals/Left, are totally complacent with the slaughter of children overseas rather than having another President with a fucking R after his name. He's a racist? BIG FUCKING DEAL - PEOPLE ARE FUCKING DYING. It's so goddamn hypocritical. Like the Biggest Fucking War Ever is suddenly not-that-big-of-deal, because a D is running it.

Commentators needs to get it through their thick heads: there is no Liberal in this race, so you need to pick the best candidate that represents your views, regardless of the party affiliations. Is preventing the horrific and slow death of innocent children suddenly not a priority of Liberals? Apparently.
