OK, folks, here's an honest straightforward article about Ron Paul. After reading it my opinion of him hasn't really changed. He is a narrow minded, mentally inflexible person who hasn't changed his mind on an issue in over 50 years. His ideas are based on fears of his elders generated largely in the 19th century. He ignores or refuses to believe anything that doesn't fit his world view that was generated all those decades ago. None of these are characteristics of someone we should have as president or someone who has significant influence over our nation's policies.
