Ron Paul has been warning people for decades of the insertions, intrusions and dismantle of our rule of law. Much of his alarms have manifested itself in the last 5 years. All the while, people like yourself have 'poo pooed' is claims as irrational rants, dismissive of him and his philosophy from treating him like the 'crazy uncle' you let out of the attic periodically to outright ignoring him.
At the same time, endulging in the passivity of the Establishment Republicans who, at best (or worse) still strive for a bipartisan, compromising governance with people who have no intentions what so ever to seriously negotiate.
Dismiss Dr. Paul if you will, but the state of the Republican party and the country has your fingerprints on it.
