Ron Paul like Jimmy Carter?

I was just curious what the two thought about each other and what where some similarities they might have as politicians, so I searched Yahoo! and came across this blog. You gotta help me out here guys. I just couldn't wrap my head around the .......well just read it if you like. I really think this guy needs a good and proper introduction to the message, he has lots of questions.

Thankyou all for the insightful responses.

I am still willing to look at Carter in a new light. As hard as it can be to live life principled Dr. Paul and Jimmy Carter both seem to have it down. This forces me to ask; What am I willing to do? How far will I move for peace, principled living and right choices down to the nitty gritty. Pres. Carter is defying all to go against the grain and reach out for peace. Yes, you can throw personality into the mix and all of our soured criticisms but who is acting? Who among us realizes the great sacrifice of self as Pres. Carter has demonstrated. It is the same behavior that our brave dear Dr. displays when going up against the neo-cons. as well as our brave soldiers who really just thought they might get some college, money and health care out of the deal. But were willing none the less....What makes great men great? The good Dr.'s warning has been ringing loud in my ears, I have learned to listen to him and all of us are going to have to be brave. Just to do what it takes to feed our families and put our children through college.

Thank you for directing my attention to the toxic essay. The author dismisses firm allegiance to unyielding principle as being "wishy-washy" because The Good Doctor doesn't suffer from the typical Demoblican's exaggerated sense of injury and fear addiction. He goes on to decry the "archaic" Constitutional principles of division of authority and the issuance of Letters of Marque and Reprisal.

To answer the question in your title: No! Beyond the superficially common characteristics of bilateral symmetry and US citizenship, Congressman Paul is nothing like President Carter. Dr Paul is directed by firm principle and irreducible logic, whereas Mr Carter is motivated by squishy feel good emotion and marxist orthodoxy.

Right on, Jim is a hack...

His knowledge of economics would make Keynes proud.
His political philosophy is...absent. He has none except his whims of the moment.
