I’m a Green but encourage all to vote for Ron Paul in the primaries.  If he loses, he might run as a non-Republican.  Maybe he’ll pick a Green as a running mate.  I posted a fun poll for such a match at

When I see the “fake left” (Ed Schultz, Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O’Donnel, Rev. Al…) and Fox News working in unison to attack or marginalize Ron Paul, I realize he can not be bought like Obama (Wall Street), the Republicans or the MSNBC corporate media whores pretending to be progressive.

Unlike 90% of the Democrats and 100% of the Republicans, Ron Paul is the worst nightmare of the military industrial complex.  Paul is for a strong defense and the man knows the difference between defense and neocolonialism disguised as “policing” the world.  During the countless Republican debates, I believe Ron Paul has displayed true intellectual honesty and courage by questions like, “How do we expect people to want to trade with us while we kill their children?”  Other than a fiery Mike Malloy, few would utter such words into the corporate media propaganda pit we allow on the public airways as “News”. 

A few years back, I recall watching a presidential debate between “W” and John Forbes Kerry that degenerated in to both men shouting at the other that “he” would kill more “terrorists” than the other guy! Since 9/11 we have sent “millions” of Muslims and their children to their deaths. Our Marines love to boast that they are “Widow makers and heart breakers”.  Amy Goodman (Democracy Now) reported yesterday that there now over 900,000 widows in Iraq. would this carnage and inhumanity have happened under a President Paul?
