Ron Paul is overwhelmingly correct about the proper role of The State and The Citizen in our Constitutional system. Sadly, he is also , a confirmed moral idiot. That's what you get with Ron Paul, a man who believes his own legend, bathes in the ABSOLUTE ADULATION of his adherents, and seldom has to defend his idiocy because his acolytes will defend ANYTHING he says, no matter how indefensible.
And really, if any group of people would reject the Indispensable Man and Cult of Personality crap, you'd think it would be self-proclaimed Libertarians.
The Seal in question IS an American hero.
By all accounts he did NOT "live by the sword".
That was but one aspect
of a complicated,accomplished life.
His country asked him to perform a task that the vast majority of it's men are unable and unwilling to do.
He answered the call.
Later, he was killed by an apparent mad man.
Now you'd think the "smartest living American", the Great Man Himself, Ron Paul- would be more intellectually rigorous in his analysis than to spout a cliche about cosmic justice, but alas that's all
he had; commentary that barely rises to the Phil Donahue level.
