Here's a pretty old post from the blog archives of Geekery Today; it was written about 16 years ago, in 2007, on the World Wide Web.
This ad is nothing more than a series of strawmen. Still, it may be the most exciting race to watch in this campaign season. In any case a lot more turns on it than whether or not I personally choose to vote for Ron Paul.

As far as the real candidates go, Gravel gets my vote for the best campaign vids by several light-minutes.

The fire one I didn’t like quite so much, but it still provided a far better analysis of the problems with a fiat currency based fractional reserve banking system than anything St Ron. has said on the matter.
But then, actually teaming up with Rx2008…
Chapeaux, Mr Gravel!
(e.d. not that I want to be seen saying good things about anyone running for office, dunces and rogues the lot of them, as Emma put it.)
