Congressman from Lake Jackson,Texas in the metro Houston area. He works as a medical doctor. He has been a consistent classical liberal or libertarian as congressman and a presidential candidate (as a Republican in 2008 and a Libertarian in 1988). He holds to a consistent constitutionalist position upholding the Lockean political philosophy that the United States was founded upon. He argues for a nighwatchman view of the State consistent with the Jeffersonaian view of the U.S. Constitution.

On social issues Congressman Paul is a conservative. He supports the right to life and opposes abortion on demand. He also opposes open borders policy on immigration realizing that it is crucial to protect the culture the American political, legal, and economic system is rooted in. Even though some of his supporters are social and moral nihilists, Paul has maintained a consistent social conservatism and realizes that the main source of leftist attack on American traditions has been the Federal government. Even though he supports drug and sex deregulation, he has never endorsed illicit drug use or aberrant sexual practices. His position is to allow nature to take its course with reckless and immoral behavior rather than placing such behavior on par with traditional morality.

This same logic is present in his economic policy. Companies or individuals who can create new products or services that people choose to buy because they perceive these products or services can help them should be free to prosper. Those who offer poor quality products or services should be allowed to fail. Government should only provide basic rules for these pursuits to take place, such as prevention of fraud and enforcing contracts. As Milton Friedman used to say, the market forces people to "put up or shut up." This maxim applies to life-styles as well as business enterprises.
I am voting for Ron Paul because he stands for the principles Jefferson articulated in 1776 in the Declaration of Independence.

A dumbass that has garnered a grassroots movement in the internet. Most of these people don't realize that voting for him and having him as president will not benefit them. He is a laissez-faire nut, meaning he wants the capitalist economy and free market to take its place, thinking that the "invisible hand" of economics will solve everything. Basically, the truly free market he wants means the gap between haves and have-nots will become even larger. No one is left to regulate the corporations and the aristocracy of America grows even stronger. Ron Paul believes that the wealth from the corporations will trickle down, but he refuses to raise taxes, meaning that the rich corporations get even richer- and it's not like he wants any "unnecessary bureaucracy" anyway. This man voted against the Amber Alert, which has saved the lives of many children. Voting for Ron Paul will not benefit you.

That is all.
YOU: Dude, did you hear? Ron Paul wants to get us out of Iraq.

ME: If that's the only platform you like, you should just vote for Kucinich.

YOU: Dude, did you hear? Ron Paul wants to cut down on unnecessary socialist bureaucracies like the Department of Education!

ME: Yes, he believes that the free market is best left alone with a laissez-faire ideology. Unfortunately, there is not a single government that has survived with a laissez-faire market in history.

YOU: Ron Paul has been honest for many years.

ME: Yes, he has been a retarded congressman for about 30 years now.

An idiotic libertarian who has an internet fanbase hanging off his old wrinkled nutsack. They think Ron Paul will cure cancer and do unimaginable miracles such as get them out of their mothers basement.
idiotic fanboy: "Hey dude vote for Ron Paul, audit the fed!"

smart person: "Can we audit congress too? Aren't they the ones spending our money?"

A very simple minded man who knows very little about how the actual world works, but some how gains followers that share his simple minded ways.
Did you see Ron Paul during the Republican debate?

Yes, he seemed really smart!

You think that because you could hardly pass the 9th grade.

verb. To get a mob agitated and lead them with promises revolution only to duck out and run.
"I started a riot this weekend, told these people we were going to take city hall, but then I said fuck it and left. I just wasn't feeling it anymore. I totally Ron Paul'd those people."

He's not going to win an election.
So in 2012, don't vote for him.
Becuase if you do, you'll be supporting Palin, and nobody wants that.
"Ron Paul-2012!"
"He can't win, don't jizz yourself"

Ron Paul, in addition to being a 2008 presidential candidate, is also slang for percocet, usually in the context of recreational use.
