> Ron Paul has been, in most policy dimensions

Except, of course, when it comes to reproductive rights. In that instance, he almost immediately repudiates most voters who possess two X chromosomes.

It is frustrating how the American government is trillions of dollars in debt, waging pointless/dangerous wars and quickly turning America into a police/welfare state but instead of worrying about foreign and monetary policy, the most important issues seem to be abortion and gay marriage (things the government shouldn't even involved in).

It's much easier to win "points" and requires no serious budget and planning concerns. It certainly doesn't require any new ideas.
