A typical conversation with a young Ron Paul fanatic:
So I heard that you are a Ron Paul fan.
ISN’T HE F*#*ING INCREDIBLE!!!!
Wow…um, well, I’m not sure. See, I’m trying to decide. I was listening to Ron Paul and….
IT’S DR. PAUL!
I beg your pardon?
IT’S DR. PAUL. HE IS A DOCTOR. YOU SHOULD CALL HIM DR. PAUL. WE ALL CALL HIM DR. PAUL.
Oh….okay….I guess I can do that. When I compare Dr. Paul to Rick Santorum
WHO IS THAT?
Who is…..wait? Who is Rick Santorum?
WHO IS THAT? I DON’T KNOW WHO THAT IS. WHO IS THAT?
He just placed second in Iowa, he is running for President.
DR. PAUL DID WELL IN IOWA. YOU SOULD ONLY VOTE FOR DR. PAUL. DR. PAUL DID WELL IN IOWA.
Yeah, that was interesting because his foreign policy is….
WARS ARE BAD.
Yes, I agree war is bad and we have made some mistakes but…
WARS ARE BAD. ALL WARS. WARS ARE EXPENSIVE. THE WAR ON DRUGS IS BAD AND EXPENSIVE.
Well, that is partially true, there are some problems with the drug war but if we become a society that allows drugs it opens up a number of problems.
IT’S NONE OF OUR BUSINESS. WE SHOULD BE RESPONSIBLE. RON PAUL SAYS IT’S NONE OF OUR BUSINESS.
Well, it’s none of our business until it filters into our communities.
THAT ARGUMENT IS DUMB. SOCIAL ISSUES ARE DUMB. I DON’T HAVE KIDS OR A FAMILY BUT SOCIAL ISSUES ARE DUMB. THAT IS DUMB.
That is the other thing, it seems like a lot of what he says sounds good in a vaccum but not in reality.
DR. PAUL HAS GREAT IDEAS. HE IS HONEST. DR. PAUL IS HONEST.
Yes but do you really think any of his ideas would pass in congress or be implemented if he was president?
YES BECAUSE HE IS F#&*ING INCREDIBLE!!!
Who? Ron Paul?
DR. PAUL. YOU SHOULD CALL HIM DR. PAUL.
Oh, okay. Thanks.
END THE FED.
