King-I'm sure it'sd just a coincidence that so many of those earmarks benefited the coastal part of his district that is heavily Dim. Surely he wouldn't buy votes.

Fuzzy, even if we accept king's assertions, none of this can discredit Paul in the eyes of a Republican because it describes EVERY candidate they ran? You really want to talk voting records and contradictory positions when you nominate Romney? GTFO!

The more you dig? You read one article. The one Becca refrenced.

Earmarks = a non issue. That is money that is going to be spent, no matter what congressman gets it. Better to control what it it spent on.

Negotiating the price of prescription drugs = non issue. Working within a Medicare Prescription D law that couldn;t be defeated in its entirety. Just making the gov't waste less of our money.

If you actually knew anything, it would be a 100% improvement.

While representing himself for decades as the sworn enemy of overspending, the good doctor has had his snout deep in the earmark trough. In 2007, the Wall Street Journal reported, "The Congressman disclosed his requests this year for about $400 million worth of federal funding for no fewer than 65 earmarks. They include such urgent national wartime priorities as an $8 million request for the marketing of wild American shrimp and $2.3 million to fund shrimp-fishing research." And this is the man who had the effrontery to berate Ronald Reagan for deficit spending.

Presidential candidate and long time Representative Ron Paul said goodbye yesterday on the House floor as he prepares to make his exit from Congress after 23 years. He explained his consistent views throughout the past two decades and berated Washington for refusing to change or make hard decisions when it comes to the future. 

As the father of what many characterize as the buoyant, bi-partisan New Liberty Movement, Paul shared “the plain truth” about Washington, America’s current national crisis and the greatest threats to the future.

Paul began by explaining his goals in 1976:...
