stfuconservatives: Like Ayn Rand before him, Ron Paul publicly rails against social welfare programs while quietly collecting his monthly checks from the government. And before an Libertarians can jump in and say, “Well he paid into the system so he deserves to participate!!!”: you keep calling Ron Paul the “principles” candidate.
