What would you ask a Ron Paul supporter?

The Globe and Mail’s Ivor Tossell has an article discussing the “wingnuts” who flood the Web, stuffing virtual ballots in favour of Republican presidential long-shot Ron Paul.

Just as interesting are the comments attached to the story, many of which are from people from the U.S. and elsewhere who had never seen the Globe and Mail before today. (A couple called globeandmail.com a “no name website” and suggested he wrote the article just for the traffic it would bring from Ron Paul supporters.)

I’m going to be talking to a Montreal-based Ron Paul supporter soon for an upcoming article. What questions should I ask him?

    How does suing everyone all the time for violating your “individual rights” work to effectively reduce legislation codified by society over thousands of years? To me, Ron Paul’s stance can be loosely summed up as: “fuck laws, let the courts mediate when people’s rights conflict with each other” — what’s the point when laws already serve that purpose?

    And also, do you really think all humans can be free, equal, and equally free? If so… in what fairytale are you living, and does it need a princess?

    Yes, yes I do. I’m just clearly awake enough to know it’ll never happen.
