Sorry to make it 9 questions long, but it needs to be - Ron Paul is strange in that he has fans who are all over the political spectrum. I'd like to see mostly what liberals and moderates think of him, as some of his positions are actually very liberal (gay rights, end the wars, pro decrim for drugs).
What he stands for:
-Decriminalize all drugs, seriously consider legalization for some.
-Ending the wars ASAP.
-Ending / reducing the income tax. also ending the IRS
-Ending the federal reserve system, because it makes the rich richer and everyone else poorer.
-Switching the US dollar to a Gold / Silver standard, stabilizing it's value and ending the "hidden tax of inflation"
-He is against abortion.
-He is pro gay rights.
-Give states full authority on education; no more federal money with harsh strings attached.
-Shrink federal entitlement programs, he believes this is a right of the states.
-Solve Immigration by denying illegals ALL benefits (ie. medicare, in-state tuition)
-End military($$$) aid to Israel (and other countries). We give more money to Israels enemies than we do to Israel anyways.
-End embargo on Cuba.
-Reduced federal airport security, not needed because he will allow pilots to be armed (try hijacking that with a boxcutter/ knife!). Mostly wants to get rid of these high-def body scans.
