What a legend! I have the highest respect for this great man. The only sane voice in American politics has left the building.
I still dont know what happen he suddenly disappeared from recent elections . CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME i really missed this part
Ron Paul is a kook and his son Rand Paul is not that far behind.
The US media did not 'ban' him. As much as I despise the current US media as an institution, the fact that he is in speaking demand mean the system works: That he is free to speak and to prosyletize to anyone who want to see/hear him.
Paul is easy to agree with -- on principled grounds. However, it is necessary for politicians to compromise at the practical and pragmatic level in order to maintain the country. When pressed often for details on how he can be the country's maintenance man, so to speak, he has none. He is one of those who demand instantaneous change and refuses to budge. Conservatives and Republicans generally stay away from him -- rightly. The conservative magazine National Review have no problems telling its readers on how often Paul is wrong on everything from economics to foreign affairs -- with details.

This is not counting the Pauls' under the table relationships with racists. Even the closet Klansman Pat Buchanan is more evident than the Pauls about race.

He talked truth on many of this debates when campaigning.
Most of his thinking are impractical and he was impractical. What he wanted was relinquish everything that US has painstaking build for two centuries for what is now called US of A.
