|Congressman Ron Paul is an unelectable crank because he’s obcessed with the crazy notion that increasing the national debt is tantamount to devaluing the currency. To view a larger image, click on it.|
They say that I missed 3 questions, but I’m going to argue with them about one answer. The other two though, I blew fair and square.

I need to do some more studying. How about you?
I don’t think the Republican voters have the courage to nominate the only candidate who bases his votes on constitutional principles

After receiving an unresponsive reply from Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson to my letter requesting that she oppose any extension of the Patriot Act, I gave her office a phone call. I asked the person who answered the call to please write my comment down so that she could pass it along to the senator unedited. She said she would, and so I s-l-o-w-l-y told her this:
|I’m not a senator who has to play any political games in order to make my views have anything like the global impact that she does, but I can certainly make sure that on a small scale, my disagreement with the liberty that the senate and congress are attempting to steal from me – are known worldwide.
Here’s how I’ll do it, and here’s how television stations, newspapers and internet bloggers the world over are going to know that it’s her fault:
The next time I get called to federal jury duty, I promise you that if I even suspect that any of the evidence against the accused was acquired by use of Patriot Act provisions that ignore the accused’s 4th and 5th amendment rights, I will vote to acquit – the jury may only be hung, but I will NOT compromise – and I will publicly announce to any news outlet I can attract that Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison’s personal disregard for her oath of office is what motivated, and is directly responsible for that possibly guilty person’s continued freedom.
