Ron Paul Cult Leader?


Great testimonial. Like him or not, and there is a lot I disagree with Ron Paul about, there is something fascinating about the man. This video captures it. Part of the attraction is obviously about contrast; he speaks like a human being; making reasonable points about America’s obvious aggression and the inevitable reaction. When all the other candidates in the US election are ignoring this Paul’s stance is like water in a desert. But Angel’s testimonial suggests that Paul has something of the cult leader about him … I don’t mean that in a pejorative way. Some people have this ‘thing’ that’s born out of their own intensity and conviction and is very attractive to others. Obama had some of this and, mixed with being young, gifted, (tall, handsome) and black, it created a certain glamour … Paul does not have these advantages. There’s a sense you’re getting the pure stuff.
