The presidential candidate debates have been pretty dry with a few exceptions like Dennis Kucinich, Senator Gravel and Rep. Ron Paul. All three have been cast as outside the mainstream. Out of the mainstream is the tag you face if you have the audacity to buck conventional wisdom which is usually wrong. George S. Patton once said, “where everyone is thinking alike no one is really thinking.” I think he would have liked Ron Paul. After all Ron Paul is really trying to save American lives. Another thing I like about Ron Paul is that he’s a veteran of the United States military. Imagine that a Republican with a military record. That’s a change. Ron actually served his country in the U.S. Air Force as a flight surgeon. His critics include Rudy Giulianni who didn’t have the courage of conviction to serve in the U.S. Military. Don’t you love hypocrites like Rudy criticizing real patriots like Ron Paul? I like Ron Paul he’s a real conservative. Barry Goldwater would have been proud to serve with Ron Paul.
