As with any personality (Reagan, Palin, Cruz, Bush) I'm ambivalent on Paul.
Your opinion of him doesn't matter, and neither does mine. The Lord Dr. St. Dr. Rev. Dr. Fr. Dr. Ron Dr. Paul Dr. Dr. Dr. is the most powerful cult leader this country has seen in at least the past 100 years. He has an army of people who are literally willing to die for him. His policies don't matter, only the devotion of his followers. It is truly astonishing how many people support him in spite of the fact that his policies would make their lives far worse (for example I've seen a number of students at state-run medical schools supporting him, even though in his dream economy they would never have been able to go to med school).
His strong suit was economics.
Except that his entire economic policy was truly centered around lowering his own taxes. He didn't even pretend to give a shit what it would do to other peoples' taxes. He proposed several ideas that would have been disastrous to the vast overwhelming majority of Americans in the interest of making things more comfortable for the very top echelon.
