    Default Ron Paul's 2002 Predictions Come True?

    You know, I wouldn't have mind if Ron Paul actually won the GOP nomination. Out of all the GOP candidates, he was probably the only one I'd be willing to vote for because he is truly one of the most honest politicians there are (besides the fact that I still don't like some of his policies.) Maybe that is the reason why he won the California straw poll.

    Be prepared to be mind-blown, conspiracy or not. The person that created the video shows Ron Paul's 2002 speech and juxtaposed it with current/relevant events since 2002.

    I agree with the quote about ideas.

    That's one of the reasons he scares the living fuck out of me God save us from those who actually adhere to their beliefs so rigidly
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    It sounds like you want someone who has no vision for our country.

    No, I want someone who isn't stupid enough to be taken in by dogma

    That sounds rather dogmatic.

    Who cares if he's honest when many of his political positions are destructively backwards? It's like saying you'd vote for someone because you want to have a beer with them.
