The rule of thumb here is to attack the messenger not the message.
It's a sure sign their powder is all wet.

All crack heads know you cannot smoke the rock when it is all wet, hence the reduction in posting for some..........

GS, instead of engaging in yet another dance of obfuscation, how about dicussing the topic of the thread?

Could you enlighten us as to which characteristics of Obama stack-up with Ron Paul?

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thatís what I intend to reverse.

~ Senator Barack H. Obama

Read the posts. I'm pretty sure everyone here gets it but you. Pay particular heed to the post from Ed, perhaps that will help catch you up. Ask, and I'll answer -- once -- if you don't like the answer, that's just too bad. Your incessant attempts at ridicule and chiding will not evoke a different response.

I am, BTW, quite impressed by your singular use of intentionally tainted data as the sole basis of your thesis. Quite the little scientist...

Botnst's pastor says that men were created from thin air and women were made from his rib, and the universe was created in seven days three thousand years ago. I am outraged that Botnst did not stand up in his pew and denounce the liar.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

What tainted data? I simply asked that you compare & contrast Ron Paul with Obama. Yet you manage to dodge and insinuate all manner of things about me and goodness knows what else.

So again, let me ask -- what attributes of libertarianism exhibited by Obama attract you, who previously professed attraction to Ron Paul?
