I don't differentiate between authoritarianism on a state and federal level, so Paul is just about on the same level as most of them to me. The obvious exceptions are people like Santorum who are on a completely different level.
Ok I see where youre coming from now. I agree with that statement 100%. I know people probably think im some sort of Paulbot or whatever...but i only lean towards him because he is by far the best option out of everyone involved in the race, and a step away from fascism for a change. My ideal candidate does not exist. Anyways, being that you then essentially view Paul as Authoritarian, you must think the others and everyone else in politics for that matter are as well, and to a much higher degree. Would you agree with that?
I don't have an ideal candidate either and never will, but I lean more toward the type of liberals who are for regulating corporations to maximum benefit of society, while leaving individual sovereignty up to the individual person.
That type doesn't currently exist in the government, the batch we have now are beholden to corporations while either pay lip service or blatantly forgoing the whole 'individual' thing.
