He may be different, but that might mean he's a whole lot worse as well.
I never said I ONLY look at the reasons behind his votes. I said the anti paul writer needs to realize there is a positive reasoning behind the vote. To simply look at what you feel the vote will do, but not take into account that the end result could be very different from what you think is short sighted.
I believe that the positive would out weigh the negative. Ending war. Tearing apart the tax code. Ending the war on drugs releasing thousands of non violent criminals. Breaking down the fed. Lowering the price of college. getting rid of so much regulation and burden on small business owners. If I can have that over what we have had for the last few generations, I will take it.
