Can an Anarchist be a Statesman?

No.

It's been more than "suggested" on multiple occasions that Ron Paul is an Anarchist and a fraud. An Anarchist can't be described as "A Statesman".

Conclusion, Ron Paul is an Anarchist, not a Stateman or a Statist.

The funniest part is that an Anarchist CAN open the door to Statism by "destroying an established order". There's a darn good reason Anarchists hate a Constitutional Republic.
