from dennis perrin: The liberal attacks on Ron Paul, fueled by a recent hit piece in the New Republic, are so transparently cynical that it almost makes me smile. Almost. To quote James Ridgeway, liberals can be and often are the meanest motherfuckers around... What bothers liberals... is that Paul is the only presidential candidate who is seriously running against the state. This includes anti-imperialism and calls to end the Drug War... Hillary and Obama are nowhere near this mindset - quite the opposite... they oppose any dismantling of the war state... They simply want their preferred candidates to run the machine instead.
