Ashley Miller asks, “Why does anyone like Ron Paul?”, and then does a fabulous job listing all the reasons Paul is a disastrous nutcase. She pretty much answers her own question with a thoroughly documented and reasoned “YOU SHOULDN’T!”, but if you want even more of an explanation, read the comments. Apparently reddit linked to the article, and every Libertarian kook in the world funneled their way to this one article, where they left their outraged comments.
Rarely have I encountered such a vile stew of misogyny and stupidity, outside of youtube comments, as you’ll find on that thread. It reminds me why I detest Libertarians, and Ron Paul in particular. The man would be a total disaster for the economy, in addition to being a poisonous social regressive.
