What? Judge Rules Virginia's Stipulation of Local-Petition-Gatherers-Only Is Unconstitutional, But Finds Against Plaintiffs on Lateness-to-Raise-Issue Rationale

So, Virginia will be Rombley and Ron Paul.

Oh, and Ron Paul is was selling his house, so you can live where Liberty once did. (Corrected: it's old.)

No seriously he says something like that.

I don't get it. The adoration. The hero-worship.

These are men, not ersatz deities. I don't get the whole Relic Collecting industry that has sprung up among a few charismatic political figures.

As Bruce Wayne said, a man is corruptible, only an idea is incorruptible.

We are making a big mistake when we idolize men rather than ideas.

It's not just weird when Obama is fetishized. It's weird when anyone is.
