Describing Paul as "the most liberal, radical left-wing person to run for president in the United States in the last 50 years," Morris added, "This guy is no conservative. This guy is a ultra, ultra left-wing radical."
"I think it's horrible!" Morris exclaimed. "Nobody else wants to dismantle the military, including Obama, but he does. Even Obama doesn't want to repeal the Patriot Act but he does! Even Obama doesn't say that we caused 9/11 and brought it on ourselves. But Ron Paul does. Even Obama doesn't want to legalize heroin and cocaine, but Ron Paul does."
The assertion that Ron Paul is the not only the least conservative candidate in the 2012 GOP field, but also the most liberal is beyond ridiculous. In fact, Ron Paul is not only the most conservative candidate, he is officially the most conservative member of congress and more conservative than any senator or president, not only today but dating all the way back to 1937.
Out of 3,320 individuals, Ron Paul ranks number 3,320 (number 1 being the most liberal) in a Common Space Scores tabulation by distinguished political scientist Dr Keith T. Poole. The scores are computed from all the roll calls cast in the House and Senate for the 1937 -- 2002 period.
To suggest that the other GOP contenders are more conservative than Ron Paul is truly laughable. Both Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney supported the banker bailout and Romney was the author of an almost identical proposal to Obamacare, while Michelle Bachmann, the so-called Tea Party (Taxed Enough Already) candidate, is a former tax collector...
Morris says if Federal drug laws were abolished, everyone would be high all the time...I guess including Morris himself. He also shows incredible ignorance on his comments on the gold standard (maybe he's already on drugs).
