Ron the infant
Maybe Ron Paul appeals so much to adolescents because he is one. Many of his proposals
about necessary changes are excellent, but he seems to have no idea how government actually works. When asked about implementation, he fades into vagueness.
As far as I can tell, he believes in magic. As soon as a man with the Correct Rothbardian Ideology is in the president's chair, everything will just fall into place by itself.
"Wellllll, I'll just stand back and let The Market take care of things."
News for ya, Doc. The Market is the problem. The Market is exactly what gives us permanent wars, chaos, starvation, tyranny and depression.
Listen, Doc: You can't break up a genocidal crime syndicate by wishing, or by saying magic words. You have to remove the criminals from power. Fire a few thousand, jail a few hundred, "suicide" a few. That should give the rest of them a sense that you mean business. Their fear will last a month or so, and then you'll have to fire, jail and "suicide" again. Repeat until clean.
Follow the examples of Walpole, FDR and Clinton, not the example of Harry Potter.
