I have no idea what you are even referring to. I can assure you that this isn't her but I know for a fact she didn't vote for Obama. And even if she did, why does that invalidate someone's opinion? Ron Paul supporters complain about partisanship yet you are the worst example of why America is going backwards. You resort to name calling and personal insults behind a computer screen rather than an intellectual debate, I assume you do this because you have no legs to stand on in the real world. You can post all you want on every website defending Ron Paul, or you can get off the computer, stop making personal attacks, and be a decent human being. You remind me of a bully in a schoolyard rather than an intellectual adult. So when you respond, stop the name calling and actually defend Ron Paul with facts. By the way, I agree with his foreign policy. I don't hate everything about him.

1 year, 1 month ago on Ron Paul doesn't please all students
@DanielRufty You just proved that you know absolutely nothing about this paper. I wonder if you even go to UNCC. The people who write the article are forbidden to comment on their own article. That is common is just about every single publication in this country, and many others as well. She is not a "big-time" Obama supporter, this isn't her but I can assure you that she didn't even vote for Obama, she voted for McCain. So stop spewing lies when you have no idea what you are talking about. It is honestly all sorts of pathetic.
By the way if any of you want to write an article in his defense then the paper is open to you too. Assuming that you are all UNCC students anyway.
To all the people who are absolutely crapping on this article and the merits it has, they clearly can't read. This is under "opinions", nothing more and nothing less. It is an opinion. By the way, there are sources in the article but I guess some people can't be bothered to read. Also just because some (the vast majority) of people don't like Ron Paul (for very valid reasons) doesn't mean they are idiots.The only thing Ron Paul could become president of is the internet.
Please don't even start to blame the "liberal media", they have given him more interviews than every other candidate. He has had more air-time. He is always on TV despite his terrible poll numbers. Also not everyone who thinks Ron Paul (Ayn Rand) is a danger to humanity loves Obama. There are more then two political viewpoints, get your heads out of the sand.
Some of these posters need to read Ayn Rand's policies before they start kneeling before Ron Paul. Ron Paul even named his own son after her. This is the same insane person who said "If you mean whose side one should be on, Israel or the Arabs, I would certainly say Israel because it’s the advanced, technological, civilized country amidst a group of almost totally primitive savages who have not changed for years and who are racist and who resent Israel because it’s bringing industry, intelligence, and modern technology into their stagnation.". She is a racial supremacist calling other people racist and savages. She said the same of Native Americans and many other people. For all of those who think Paul is for equal opportunity and liberty, who could he be for those things when the woman he idolizes is so against them?
As for the minimum wage point, Scandinavia has the highest living standards in the world (bar none) and they have very high minimum wages. They can actually afford health care and poverty is nowhere near as big of a problem there as it is here. And don't claim demographic reasons for their success, they were dirt poor only 60 years ago. It is their democratic socialism (done correctly) that makes them prosperous. If you want businesses to own you under the pretend guise of "freedom" then vote for Ron Paul. If not, then just don't vote at all. All Democrats and Republicans basically want similar things anyway.
By the way, far-right economics are not the main way to go. Look at what happened in Latin America when far right governments were installed by the CIA a few decades ago. It doesn't work out to be as rosy as people may think. You say you don't trust the government and that's fine, but what makes you trust businesses any more? Look at their track records, big business is no angel.
