He tells it like it is. He is a devout constitutionist. If it ain't in the constitution, he don't vote for it. He doesn't even waver on the issues. You won't hear him pandering to a constituency. This country needs more people like Ron Paul. Do I hear a boo-yah?

    Ok, one more time.....the man wants to LEGALIZE HEROIN, among other drugs. This alone, with none of his other freakshow ideas about foreign policy, guarantees he will not be elected as POTUS. And shouldn't be. Common sense.

    Any of you willing to state right here on this board that it would be a good thing to legalize heroin?

    5 Years After: Portugal's Drug Decriminalization Policy Shows Positive Results: Scientific American

    Five years later, the number of deaths from street drug overdoses dropped from around 400 to 290 annually, and the number of new HIV cases caused by using dirty needles to inject heroin, cocaine and other illegal substances plummeted from nearly 1,400 in 2000 to about 400 in 2006, according to a report released recently by the Cato Institute, a Washington, D.C, libertarian think tank.
    Why exactly do you think it will be a bad thing? People are going to use no matter what, it's better they have a safe and more sterile way to go about it. One less thing for gangs to profit from, less violence, and a source of tax revenue. Not to mention the various amounts of other products that come from the marijuana plant.

    Ron Paul, despite having little to no chance of getting the nomination, is the best man for the job. Everyone else (possibly with the exception of Jon Huntsman) is either too extremist or too fake (Mitt Romney).

    As an affirmation of personal liberty, it is absolutely a good idea. Anyone who spends THEIR OWN money on the drugs and uses them in the privacy if their own home is hurting no one but himself. It does not benefit society to arrest them. Only when they resort to burglary to support their habit should law enforcemenrt get involved.

    while I agree with your sentiment on personal liberty, isn't that an oversimplified way of looking at it? I mean, there are consequences of using drugs that do affect other people. Liquor is "legal" and in some instances, more than the just the drinker are affected. Way more and sometimes tragically. Do you really think that will be different with drugs, legal or not? I don't. So I don't really think that's a good argument.

    Now as far as Ron Paul goes, I'm with the others who like him. He's the only one who sounds like he believes what he's saying. I'm very underwhelmed by most of the crowd, at least of those I've heard. Scratching my head over Bachmann. Newt doesn't have the temperament (but he does have good ideas). Haven't heard enough from Perry. I do like Cain also, but I don't think the GOP will give him a chance. So that leaves Ron, at least at this point.

    You do know your vote counts twice, right? Refusing to vote because you don't like any GOP candiate reduces the GOP lead over Obama by one vote. So a non-vote benefits anti-gunners, higher taxes, higher deficits, trade deficits and socialism. Obama's new tag line is "get it done!" Why doesn't he get it done. He's waiting until Sept to come out with his economic plan.

    Good point about the the "legal" drugs... many are abused daily and are very dangerous. I think we should legalize, control the sale of, and tax weed like we do alcohol and tabacco. As far as it being a gateway drug... that's BS. It's up to the individual to decide if they want to pursue harder drugs. I've smoked weed before... and have never touched another "dime" or wanted to do hard drugs. It's BS...

    Ask my sister if it was the weed or "her" that decided to do cocaine... she'll admit it was her own dumb choices.
