Comment: Ron Paul was/is just a

Ron Paul was/is just a

Ron Paul was/is just a vehicle.

The reason the philosophy persists over time isn't because RP is a great orator - he's far from it, in my opinion - it's because the principles are coherent, harmonious and just. This is unique only to classical liberalism and it's why it appeals to anyone.

All other ideas of government persist only to serve the parasitical state. Endlessly bamboozling people into slavery.

RP has cemented himself as a statesman and proponent of truth. But if humanity is ever going to slay Goliath, countless others are going to have to come after him. It's important to note: The state is only a secondary enemy, comfort and complacency are much larger beasts than any government faced. They always have been.
