Ron Paul 2012! The Chad Doesn’t Fall Far From the Ballot.

Bookmark and Share   This is  funny, but sadly it’s true!

I have said long ago that Ron Paul followers are a bit out of touch.  I also believe that many of Ron Paul’s most ardent and boisterous supporters are teens and college age kids.

As exemplified by the young man seen in the video above, most of Ron Paul’s supporters are men between the ages of 18 and 30.   His support among both men and women progressively declines from the age of 27 and up.    In other words, most of Ron Paul’s support comes from the very kids that you see on MTV during Spring Breaks specials at Senor Frogs in Cancun, or surrounding a stage on Miami Beach while drinking beer through funnels and flailing their booties and hands about to Fifty Cent’s latest rap about those he deems as bitches and hos.  As portrayed by the very civic-minded young man in the video above, this is what accounts for a significant portion of Ron Paul’s support.

The problem is that much like the irresponsible fool in the video, many of the minds in this young demographic are not as  inspired by Ron Paul’s respect for the Constitution as they are for the excuses they come with up based upon Ron Paul’s interpretations of the Constitution.  What they do with Ron Paul’s message is say “Yeah, that’s right.  Government has no right to tell me anything”.    While government should in fact play much less a role in our lives than it currently does, Ron Paul’s lack of any willingness to acknowledge many of the proper responsibilities for government, allows for an almost anarchist-like interpretation of his message by those who wish to legitimize their own unfettered conduct.

Paul’s mousey toned, but impassioned description of  the Constitution helps the  typical young rebel who feels  invincible and naïvely believes they are of superior intellect,  to make excuses for irresponsible behavior.   The largest demographic supporting Ron Paul likes the idea of freedom but they do not quite grasp the fact that with freedom also comes great responsibility and personal control.  And so like the punk kid in the video, they do not respectfully regard the Constitution for the freedom it defends, they instead use it as an excuse for avoiding the personal responsibility that comes with freedom.

  1. This post is frothing with political bias and opinion founded on a total misunderstanding of Paul’s base. Saying one person who acted with stupidity represents the collective of an entire group ignores the very core of individualism which is Paul’s platform entirely. In a free society, people are free to make there own mistakes.

    It’s also quite disingenuous to offer opinion for news when this website seems aimed at educating potential voters.

    I will not be a regular.

    • Proving my point about Ron Paul supporters, you obviously have a problem with facts. Thissite clearly states that it is a)- A Republican site b)- That it offers news, analysis, commentary and opinions. Now if you can not tell the difference between what is news and what is opinion, than you are not worth my time. So please, spend your time patting yourself on the back on the Ron Paul Fanatic Page, not here.
