Rick Steves message is that the Iranian people are just like you and me. They put their pants on one leg at a time; send their children off to school with a hug and a kiss, and generally want a prosperous and happy life. The government is to blame for all the evils in the world; they generate the propaganda; they start senseless wars; they seek to make themselves all powerful at your expense. Why don't you address your energy towards improving things? The more you argue against Ron Paul's message, the less your argument makes sense. I put one point in bold for it pertains to Romney. Money is power, and good ole' windsock Romney will continue to milk the poor and defenseless to advance his wealth. He is as corrupt as Gingrich or Obama. Ron Paul is incorruptible!
