Ron Paul, Extremist

In a recent interview, Jon Huntsman described Ron Paul as “appealing to the extremes” of both parties.  If you have a one-dimensional view of politics, this is the only way to explain Paul’s appeal.  He is liberal on personal freedom, and conservative on government.  Jeremiah’s readers, however, have a two-dimensional view.

Seen this way, Rep. Paul is perfectly consistent – and he has spent years honing his barbs against the real extremists in the other corners.  That’s why he’s incomprehensible for a mainstream politician like Gov. Huntsman.  It’s just too bad we voters must always choose between civil rights and property rights.
