Often I hear quasi-intelligent people ask, "Why support Ron Paul? He has no chance of winning."
As if the likelihood of wars in the future was a reason for not supporting peace. As if the existence of injustice was grounds for dismissing justice. As if because the majority of the people are idiots, then I cannot be smart. As if just because I am overweight now, then I should not try to shed a few (dozen) pounds.
I'd rather lose with the good than win with the bad. Go ahead, ye supporters of Xerxes. I will fight with Leonidas. Call me a fool, but I stand between you and more war, more taxes, more regulation, and slavery--that's right, I said slavery.
