Ron Paul will win. You heard it here, folks. Don’t worry about McCain already cinching up the nomination. Don’t worry about Obama’s late surge tonight on Hillary in Indiana, home of the famous White (n-word).
Nope, Ron Paul will win. It’s pure science. Math and science. Scientific Dinosaur. Scientific Dinosaurs with jetpacks and laser bombs. Yes, laser bombs. Don’t ask me how they work, but they blow your mind out your ass!
Seriously though, how is this the 13th most popular argument on HMB? Ron Paul mania drove me nuts when it was somewhat legit. It was this weird amalgamation of potheads who care about nothing else but pot (and Mr. Paul is all about legalizing it) mixed with these libertarian nutcases that think we can just pack it in and remove ourselves from the rest of the world. Like we can just put our heads in the sand and ignore the world. Or we could get really, really high ignore the rest of the world. Obama, Clinton and McCain only offer one solution. Ron Paul has two! But don’t get high and then stick your head in the sand, because that’s just really, really dumb..
But Ron Paul love is no longer legit. It’s over. Or at least it should be over. But, there is something magical about this little man. Something about his absurd world view that sucks people in. I mean I kinda like it in a candy land type of way, the same way I like Ralph Nadar’s America, except, you know, totally opposite.
If we can get over that he is a racist, or at least had his name attached to some pretty racist stuff… and if we can get over that he is batshit crazy, there are some neat ideas in there. But who wants to sift through all that BS? I know I don’t.
But you guys do! So it’s time for me to embrace it. Ron Paul is totally gonna win. I mean, I am just as sick as everyone else of politicians on both sides of the aisle that are just carbon copies of each other with competing companies guiding their interests. It’s a pretty terrible system run by money and greed and hunger for power. I would love for someone to stand up and be above it (which is why I support Obama, I think he does that, but only ever so slightly. Just so very barely. Like he is one pubic hair (width) higher). But, why when we search for someone to stand above it do we fall in love with these goddamn loons? Ron Paul? Ralph Nadar? Ross Perot? Come on, people.
I have a better idea. You know who was an amazing president? David Palmer! Yes, David Palmer, the president from 24 who met an untimely end. Lets get the actor that played him and be like “dude, you run for president, as David Palmer, and as president you make your decisions like David Palmer would. Hire your writers as your cabinet. Get Jack Bauer an office in LA and lets rock this party”
This makes more sense to me than Ron Paul. Why do we love crazy people so much?
I hope Ron Paul runs as an independent. I really do think it would be good for the process, just like Nadar was. It’s good to get a voice that is outside of the mainstream. And it will be awesome when he costs McCain Florida.
