You're suggesting reasons that Dr. Paul may not be entirely successful in regard to his designs, which is apparently enough to stop you from supporting his effort. What kind of thinking is that? Oh yeah, the kind that supports the status quo. Well, don't fret -- it's a near certainty that you'll get exactly what you hope for.
I will tell you what Dr. Paul can accomplish with little or no support from Congress or any political machine. He can effectively reduce the power of the executive and demand that Congress start living up to it's Constitutional responsibilities, and he can recall American troops from foreign soil, and initiate a new brand of non-interventionist foreign policy that doesn't rely on military force.
So tell me bear, what are you more afraid of? That he'll succeed on some level or that he'll fail? You seem to be forwarding both arguments, which makes no sense at all. Why not support the man and give him a chance? Do you really believe his effort can leave our federal government and our country more fucked up than it already is?
Remember, this isn't some political neophyte we're talking about, he's a 10-term U.S. Congressman who knows his way around Washington all too well.
