The Good Doctor unloaded with fury at the South Carolina Republican Presidential Debates last night. At one point the Good Doctor was asked if he thought drugs, gay marriage, and prostitution should be legalized. In response to this question, Dr. Paul came back with an answer that had the entire audience roaring with applause:
“How many people here would use heroin if it were legal? – I bet no body would… Oh yeah, I need the government to take care of me: I don’t want to use heroin, so I need these laws!” /sarcasm
Dr. Paul launched a money bomb on the day of the debate and managed to generate in excess of 1 million dollars in a single day. This follows on the heels of a recent CNN poll that demonstrates Paul has the best chance to beat Obama out of all the Republican presidential nominees.
I personally think Ron Paul owned those debates last night. His responses were epic and received loud applause. The focus group that Fox News had selected picked Herman Cain as the hands down winner of the debates, but it was clear that the focus group was a bunch of neo-conservative fascist warmongering hate filled evil people, so they don’t really count. Out of the neo-conservative candidates present, Cain was probably the least offensive to me. The other two neo-cons on the stage looked and talked like a bunch of plastic CIA agents.
Gary Johnson was also present for the debates last night, and I thought he was freaking awesome as well. Johnson wasn’t as warmly received as Paul was, but his replies were spot on and demonstrated a commitment to liberty that 99.9999% of politicians don’t have. In my humble opinion, a Paul/Johnson ticket would be the most epic win/win combo to ever run for the presidency of the United States in its entire history.
