Now, to the point I have ALWAYS made, there are good earmarks and bad earmarks. It is irresponsible to clump them all together and assume that, because they are in a classification that is known as "earmarks" they must be dubious or bad or made with nefarious intent.
You're becoming quite the extremist mcbear. You're very quick to attack anything GOP and defend anything Dem. BWOT shell shock?

The earmark system is corrupt, therefore all earmarks are corrupt. I know there's a little voice in your head that understands that. Perhaps it will rise above a whisper some day.

If you can't see how a person can take advantage of a system that he generally opposes, that is your shortcoming. Please note that I am not defending Dr. Paul, nor do I agree with his position, but I do understand it.
