REASON Magazine's KILLER article on Trump, Ron Paul & the GOP

This is a really GOOD article. Really good.

Regarding Donald Trump, Ron Paul, and the Bankruptcy of the GOP:

Of course it says TWICE that Ron Paul will most likely NOT get the GOP's support to run for President...but it is more of a slam to the GOP than the dropping of the old line "he can't win."

There are a few RP supporters in the comments

Its the same debate over and over again w/the faux libertarians. First they start with Gold bug and when they get told on that issue, then they move onto the racist news letters.

Seriously get some new material already.

Wow

A Ron Paul article that did not make me want to puke in my mouth a little.

Good article. Here's the

OK, I've read it. It was a bit catty, but in a rather delicious way ;-)

What is the deal with the photo?

Why must there always be some oddball photo of Ron? This time, it looks like he's petting a dead deer? WTF?

Also, hardly any of the comments are supportive of Ron. What's up with that, too?

Well, THIS RP supporter can

Well, THIS RP supporter can not comment here or on utube anymore as they demand facebook signup--something you could not pay me to do..
I do not think republicans care about winning.
It was shown last time when they nominated McCain. Their Only Chance is Ron, who already has a bigger base than McCain did. What is their problem?? (Oh, I know, actually, and could go on for pages about it). They make no sense at all. They should be so happy for Ron and put him up as a candidate immediately.

OMG that photo is horrific!

It looks like he's checking the deer's vital signs. I didn't see that when I saw the copy the first time. GOOD LORD. You are right. WHY IN GOD'S NAME DO THEY HAVE TO ALWAYS INCLUDE SOME MESSED UP PHOTO OF RON PAUL?***

Reason Magazine is not really Ron Paul's demographic (explains the comments) that's why I was so psyched to see this article published by them.

***Oh nevermind. We all know why they are compelled to include crappy pictures of him.

Trump is a plant, whether he knows it or not..

1) What better way to divide the republicans and cause them NOT to turn out to vote..
2) What better way to cause the democrats to rally the troops? He's everything they hate: a capitalist.. Gasp!

I think he knows it, too. He's been donating to democratic campaigns for gosh sakes. He is guaranteeing an Obama second term as much as McCain guaranteed the first..

100% Lynnopoly

Trump is 100% plant. He is hitting the birther issue to gather the sheep. You are dead on, and I realized it about two seconds before I saw your comment. Trump probably does not know it, but maybe he does. What a game we have to play, we cannot even trust the ones we would hope to trust. Anyone they can make appeal to the masses is dangerous, we have some desseminating to do. Ron Paul is numero uno, but if it is Obama versus Trump, what do we do?

Revolt! I'm not taking it again!

And I think most people who are aware feel the same..

Great article

Ewww, another snark attack in the guise

of objectivity; the only real intent of the article is to discredit Trump. What's with the craven support comment? and the weird, specially selected photo?

yeah but its attacking

the GOP for what the GOP deserves to be attacked about.
