Within six months, 98% of all Internet traffic will be directly attributable to Ron Paul

I suspect that the On the Issues page for Ron Paul is inaccurate, so I'm offering an update.

RON PAUL ON ABORTION

This issue will be resolved if Ron Paul supporters promote him on the Internet.

RON PAUL ON BUDGET AND ECONOMY

This issue will be resolved if Ron Paul supporters promote him on the Internet.

RON PAUL ON CIVIL RIGHTS

This issue will be resolved if Ron Paul supporters promote him on the Internet.

RON PAUL ON CORPORATIONS

This issue will be resolved if Ron Paul supporters promote him on the Internet.

RON PAUL ON CRIME

This issue will be resolved if Ron Paul supporters promote him on the Internet.

RON PAUL ON DRUGS (now that's an unfortunate phrase)

This issue will be resolved if Ron Paul supporters promote him on the Internet.

RON PAUL ON EDUCATION

This issue will be resolved if Ron Paul supporters promote him on the Internet.

RON PAUL ON ENERGY & OIL

This issue will be resolved if Ron Paul supporters promote him on the Internet.

RON PAUL ON ENVIRONMENT

This issue will be resolved if Ron Paul supporters promote him on the Internet.

RON PAUL ON FAMILIES AND CHILDREN

This issue will be resolved if Ron Paul supporters promote him on the Internet.

RON PAUL ON FOREIGN POLICY

RON PAUL ON FREE TRADE

RON PAUL ON GOVERNMENT REFORM

RON PAUL ON GUN CONTROL

This issue will be resolved if Ron Paul supporters promote him on the Internet.

RON PAUL ON TECHNOLOGY

Um...duh.

I suspect that a good percentage of the Ron Paul Internet fans are thoughtfully considering his views on domestic and foreign policy, but undoubtedly there is a percentage of fans who couldn't afford satellite radio and therefore needed to transfer their allegiance from Howard Stern. Or their non-allegiance:

Ron Paul a Libertarian?

Hardly.


The poster? BaBa Booey.

Frankly, I take issue with BBB's classification of some Paul votes as non-Libertarian:

  • Voted NO on expanding research to more embryonic stem cell lines.

  • Voted YES on banning Family Planning funding in US aid abroad

  • Voted NO on increasing minimum wage to $7.25

Since when is it "libertarian" to spend a lot of Federal money on stem cell research and family planning, and on imposing government regulations to dictate how much an employer must pay an employee?

Well, now I have to dread a Larry King call-in show in which he interviews Ron Paul and someone says "Howard Stern."

It could be worse. A Jim Rome clone could call in.

There's always the danger, however, that people will talk more about the Ron Paul phenomenon than about Ron Paul himself. So stop talking about Technorati and start talking about pot and hookers. Though not simultaneously.

I'm definitely not a radical Libertarian, but I do sincerely think that our federal government is currently out of control. It violates our country's "original design" (although that's not a sufficient reason), and has some terrible consequences. Like the National Debt. And the Federal Reserve.

David,

I personally wonder what could be done to control the activities of the federal government. To me it seems like an organizational problem rather than a governmental problem - any organization, public or private, will eventually begin to amass its own power.

One question - is the national debt truly a violation of our original design? Didn't we have a national debt back in the days of the Articles of Confederation?

Good points.
