Here is a picture of a person dressed up as V from V for Vendetta holding a sign that reads "Government: Obey the Constitution"

(Taken from the MeetUp profile page of a local Ron Paul aparatchik.)

    It would help if they would adhere to the Bill of Rights a lot more. As far as such things go, the American set isn’t the worst in the world. I imagine it’s still one of the better ones — despite the difference between the reality of America and America as represented by such a document.

    Yeah, a lot of Ron Paul supporters are missing the point that we left libertarians would make. Mostly because they haven’t been exposed to it. Which is why I support engaging these people in a constructive spirit.
