TIME: Ron Paul Is Not a PoliticianSubmitted by Dave7 on Thu, 12/22/2011 - 06:20
Pretty decent article, the best is that the author claims that Ron Paul is not a politician and is in fact honorable. The worst though is the author trying to oversimplify Paul's message by oversimplifying a counterargument. Here's the beginning:
"I watched Ron Paul deliver his stump speech–to large and loving crowds–twice yesterday and he did a very strange thing for a political front-runner. He emphasized the things traditional Republicans are least likely to approve in his libertarian appeal. He began each speech with a long, discursive section on foreign policy–citing George Washington, Dwight Eisenhower and George W. Bush, among others, on the perils of entangling alliances, the military-industrial complex and nation-building. He minced no words."
