Final Nails in Ron Paul's Racist-sexist-homophobic Campaign Coffin

Since I wrote the article:
The Ron Paul "Revolution", an Extreme Rightwing Threat
New information has surfaced regarding Ron Paul's pro-fascist agenda.
That information is discussed in the following January 7, 2008 MSNBC interview conducted by Tucker Carlson with the New Republic's Jamie Kirchick. In it he gives an inside look into his controversial piece on presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, due to hit newsstands on Friday.
The following are newly released copies of Ron Paul's extreme right newsletter to which Jamie Kirchick refers:
In addition to these revelations, in New Hampshire Ron Paul also failed to repeat anything close to the 10% vote he achieved in Iowa.
Somewhat surprisingly, there are a large number of liberal minded anti-war people who have urged a vote for Ron Paul.
They are liberal "support the lesser viable evil" types that see Ron Paul as more viable than any anti-war Democrat (arguably Kucinich and Gravel).
Additional questions have always existed if Ron Paul really was viable, or if he really was a lesser evil. New Hampshire and the latest revelations ought to put both questions to rest.
But for me there are always more important questions than if a candidate is viable or a "lesser evil". I think that building a long-term movement for real change is much more important than backing a candidate of any degree of evil. For me that includes deflating illusions in the corporate politicians of the Democrat and Republican Parties, getting out information on candidates to the left of the Democrats (the real anti-war and anti-corporate candidates), and urging further actions such as protests, strikes etc.
Simply put, there is nobody worth supporting in the racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-worker, anti-poor, and capitalist Republican Party. Never has been, never will be. Get over it. In fact, there is nobody in the corporate Democrat and Republican Parties that are worth supporting. I discuss some of the candidates that may be worth supporting in the following article:
