    I don't know much about folkism, honestly, and it's difficult to find any info about it, quickly.
    In other words, WT Holy Fuck is Folkism? Anyone who cares to fill me and my newbie ass in, feel free.
    The point appears to be elusive to you. But that's okay, carry on.

    At the end of the day, if you are going to spout it out, explain yourself. I've found that some of you who are against Ron Paul can spout out your beliefs, but not explain them or back them up. So therefore, to me, they are not valid. One can assume many things.

    I'm not really "for" Ron Paul or any other politician, but I do need a point to be explained before I fully understand it. It seems there are alot of assumptions taking place......

    You know, I think a fly is like a tiger. After all, they are both living creatures.
    I think you could be emphasizing his traditional roots, but I'm not sure that claiming "folkism" is the way to do that.


    I also found this: "ideologies can be distinguished from political strategies (e.g. folkism / populism) and from single issues that a party may be built around"

    So folkism could be similar to populism, the people against the elite..... that makes more sense.

In other words, he believes States right should trump everything else, which would allow more conservative States to retain their bigotry.
    exactly, that's the same thing as "believing tha the Federal government should stay out of the decision for same-sex marriages"? this is not a stance I agree with him on, but it isn't anti-gay.

    Yea, that's why the statement is incorrect. There are too many examples of great thinkers who were religious.

    the Founding Fathers are all good examples too, unless this forum is plagued by loyalists

    I only read indirectly from another article that Ron Paul won the Ohio state straw poll the other day.

    Cain wins the Florida staw poll and its a headline news story with the media going apeshit and he thereafter shoots from the third tier to the 1st.

    Ron Paul win California, a close second in Iowa, wins with Values summit and now wins Ohio and there is hardly a peep about it.

    I never seen the media so obviously ignore someone like this before.
    I redact everything I have written or will write on this forum prior to, subsequent with and or after the fact of its writing. For entertainment purposes only and not to be taken seriously nor literally.

    Especially given the fact that the media knew only Caine and, I think, santorum showed up at the fl straw poll with Caine speaking to the voters minutes before they cast their votes. The Florida straw poll was totally unimportant and the candidates treated it that way. However, the fact that a libertarian could convince social conservatives to vote for him at the values summit is huge.
