    Sadly those guys aren't even taken seriously. I saw Stewart on CNN I think and he brought up how poorly they treat Paul and they blew him off.

    I really think Paul understood the complex issues and actually provided resolutions to such problems. People may not agree with them but at least he stood his ground and provided his true thoughts and DETAILED resolutions. The problem was, a lot of Americans #1 couldn't comprehend the complex problems and #2 understand his sometimes complex answers. Instead, they buy into the "hot air" resolutions provided by other candidates like:

    "We need to cut the budget" --- Duhh, but how?

    "We need to bring our troops back home" --- Duhh, but how?

    "We need to remove our dependency on foreign oil" --- Duh, but how?

    Anybody can say that and EVERYBODY understands that. I respected Paul not because I agreed with all of his views. I respected Paul because he actually provided detailed answers to complicated questions.

    I wish I could bring myself to do that, because I definitely think Ron Paul is the best man for the job.

    Unfortunately in the current situation I feel too compelled to do my part to help remove the plague placed upon the American people 4 years ago by adding my vote to the person most likely to beat him.

    Whether you watch Fox News or Bill Maher, it's all comedy to me. And it's actually kinda funny that some truth only really comes from the ones that know it's comedy.

    It's odd. But simply the truth is funny in politics. Maybe that's sad?

    This should have been headline news for the last 25 years. Thank media for ignoring the real issues, and keeping us up to date on Lohan, TomKat, and Occupy Wall Street.

    We're doomed.
