Ron Paul is a Nut

This is my latest at the Partial Observer. Excerpts:
While there may be some room for quibbling around the edges, most educated, rational people would agree with all, or almost all, of these seventeen principles:...

2. The penumbra of the Bill of Rights creates a "right to privacy" that forces states to respect a woman's right to choose abortion, but does not force the federal government to respect a woman's right to choose medical marijuana.

3. The United States has an obligation to fight poverty worldwide - and also has an obligation to create even more poverty through economic sanctions against certain regimes we don't like.

...

13. Prohibition didn't work, but we must continue the War on Drugs.

14. Communism doesn't work, but central planning in education and health care is a necessity.

etc.

Comments welcome at the Partial Observer.
