There's a very good chance that my grandparents used to be racist, based on their age and growing up in rural North Carolina. Are they racists now? No. People change. Robert Byrd filibustered the Civil Rights Act, and nobody calls him a racist now..

Yeah, too bad Ron Paul hates black people.
Anyone who's been paying attention should know this.

He wants anyone to have the choice to use a gold-backed currency as opposed to being forced into trading with US dollars
Ah, so he supports confusion and unnecessary complexity. That's clearly better.

Very racist, in a poetic kind of way.

Kind of a simplification here as well, because he also wants us back on the gold standard. AKA, place worth in a rock rather a piece of paper, both of which really have no actual worth.
Fucking this. I hate every time I hear someone bitch about our fiat currency and then rave about the magic of gold.

He wrote a series of articles telling people to go buy guns in Texas to protect themselves from black people trying to steal cars.

Fiat & metal based monetary systems are both flawed in their assumption that the best way to handle trade is through applying values to items that hold no base importance except that which we assign them. The only feasible currency of exchange is common trade and that is a fact.

I consider that to be a gross oversimplification of his policy, personally. I'm not even sure why you're forcing me to defend him, either. Closing overseas bases? Ending US drone wars in Somalia, Yemen, Pakistan? Pulling out--really pulling out--of Afghanistan and Iraq? Seriously reconsidering our status as a UN permanent member? There are a lot of things about his foreign policy that are pretty advanced coming from a Republican candidate.

But, you're still kind of assuming what you think I'm saying, which is kind of silly. Debates are far more constructive when you actually respond to things I actually say rather than extrapolate whatever you want me to have said.

What's your issue with our status in the UN?

We use it as a bully pulpit, chiefly. Amongst other things. In theory, it's fantastic. In practice, it drops the ball a lot.

You're right. I'm sure the Chinese would prefer to have opium forced into their country rather than a reserve of U.S. dollars. At least this way, when their corrupt government is finally reformed, the people will have some money to spend.
