    Obvious blatant unabashed attempt at manipulation of voters by the media.


    And whats more our ET liberals, who normally hang on every word of Jon Stewart, oddly enough fail to mention this segment.

    Funny video but it does kind of annoy me how liberals use Ron Paul simply as a wedge against Republicans and never really support his issues other then foreign policy and the drug war.
     
  4. Good stuff!

    Don't worry, Ron Paul is their second choice after Obama. :confused: :confused:
     
  6. For many he's actually their first choice over Obama

    The logic behind this is, "anyone but a republican"?

    Why are you asking about logic? You have no concept of it.
     
  9. No

    Liberals are fiercely anti war and big military spending

    Liberals hate the patriot act/TSA molestation/Homeland security etc

    Liberals want drug laws similar to Pauls drug policy

    Many liberals want to abolish the federal reserve

    Many liberals are gun owners and support Pauls positions on guns

    Many liberals are single or a few issue voters and Pauls extremist stance to one or a few of those issues are enough to get them to vote for Paul

    I don't know that many liberals are pro gun. LiberTARIANs are, but not Liberals.

    Either way, if Liberals truly would vote for Ron Paul in droves like you claim, then he should be a shoe in. We (supporters of Paul) are not all that different.

    Because if Liberals were truly all those things you quoted, why the hell are they supporting Obama?
