This is one reason why I can't really respect Ron Paul. How could he give even the slightest notions of support for Ralph Nader or Cynthia McKinney, whose ideas of governance run perfectly contrary to his own? Here he mars his idealistic reputation and paints himself as an aimless rabble-rouser whose only appeal is to pure anti-war voters. To Paul, taking down the establishment is more important than ensuring that the right mechanisms will take its place.
I don't know why I'm surprised. This fits very well with Paul's other associations with less than savory characters.
