I can't argue with that, but the idea that somehow he's somehow elevated above all other politicians is a bit silly. He comes from an area that elects him because he's different and suited for a small segment of the population - hes the Republican version of that crazy black democrat lady our right wing friends keep posting videos about. Some of his ideas are fine, but the only people that really should be supporting him are isolated ranchers that can operate on themselves in a pinch.
I'm not an isolated rancher, and I don't support him because I agree with everything he has done... to find someone who fits everything I believe is well beyond attainment. I don't like Paul's earmark issue because it is contradictory to philosophy, but I can respect his honesty and integrity regardless. Look at the rest of the field... I mean... good lord... honesty and integrity is enough for me, and it would be enough regardless of his political foundation.
I elevate him for his past patterns of action.. nothing more... I cannot speak for others.

This is the kind of vitriol that splits Americans away from other Americans in this false dichotomy of R vs D... it isnt't helpful...
who are you talking about? Maxine Waters? I disagree with everything she says... but I respect her right to say it... I don't hate her... I don't even know her!
This cannot be stated enough:
The mark of an educated/intelligent mind is one that can entertain an idea without embracing it.
Aristotle originally stated it, but I like this better.
