Liberalism In 120 Seconds: Ron Paul’s Fans Can’t Have It Both Ways
Ron Paul’s fans have been complaining that he isn’t being taken seriously. Now that he has a chance to win Iowa because of the lack of scrutiny he’s had so far, people are starting to take Paul seriously and look at some of the crazy things he’s said and wants to do. Ron Paul’s fans don’t seem to like that either. But, you can’t have it both ways. If you want to be President, you don’t get to limit the conversation to the Constitution, deficit cutting, and the gold standard. Your opponents get to pick things out of your record that they want to talk about, too, and Ron Paul has a lot of disqualifiers that make it impossible for him to be the next President of the United States.
