Against Ron Paul! He’s a real mean guy!

Man, if I was a commie (or a Catoite), I guess I’d be really jealous of the Ron Paul Revolution too.

Thomas Woods responds:

I love the half-right, half-blindingly-stupid Marxist assessment of Paul — he’s the capitalist candidate who wants just what big business wants: a free market, where they can prey upon us all! Left-liberals have often said the same thing: why, he’s good on the war, but he wants big business to run wild! Pretty soon they will enslave every last one of us, etc.

Ahem, then why over the course of his career has Ron Paul received so little money from pro-business PACs? In 2002, for instance, leftist Barbara Lee got four times as much money from such PACs as did Paul, even though Paul favors the market.

Is it possible that the real world is more interesting and complex than the cartoon?

Isn’t it funny that the commies are accusing Paul of being a Catoite, right when the Catoites are right in the middle of resorting to some of the very same smears against Paul that the commies are using, since they hate him for not being a corporate welfare whore like they are? How embarrassing for both their pathetic factions.

Raimondo takes on Cato/Reason here.
