I donated.

I’ll have more posts soon, but this is timely. I donated to Ron Paul’s campaign and here’s my sickly rambling of the number of reasons.

  • I don’t like any of the leading Democratic Candidates.
  • I used to like Giuliani till I read this article about his speeches in London. I no longer believe he’s that much better than the next guy. I like his social policies, but he’s got his own set of faults.
  • When I started supporting (rooting for) Giuliani he was more of an underdog, because of his liberal nature.
  • I mostly read economists and get my news through them. I don’t like watching MSM news and haven’t taken the time to watch the debates. However, I’ve had a number of discussions recently that have been so refreshing by people who have heard Ron Paul and starting hearing libertarian ideas for the first time. This has been refreshing.
  • Ron Paul is different than all the other candidates. He’s more principled and more extreme. It’s scares me a little to think about what would happen if he wins. I think that sort of breath of fresh air could be do though.

Anyway, I’m sick (like, physically ill, not anything relating to politics). Any thoughts?

    I’d rather prefer that people’s introduction to libertarianism not be through the quirks of Ron Paul.
