Don't Tase Ron Paul, Bro!

Dean Barnett writes a great piece that links Ron Paul to anarchy.

So why have America's lunatics taken such a shine to the formerly obscure Ron Paul? There's a simple explanation: Although Paul spends most of his time talking about the Constitution and such cherished old time policies as the gold standard, he's as close to an anarchist as we're likely to see in presidential politics.

Oh, and it also has a cool (doctored) image of Ron Paul resisting the Taser Shocktroops.

EDIT: I am completely aware that the article is a smear piece. But that's not the point. Those clowns don't have a clue what the word "anarchy" even really means, and they don't realize that it's actually a compliment. Futhermore, while they Photoshopped the "Don't tase me, bro!" picture of Ron in another attempt to belittle him, they seem unaware that the real incident on which the image is based is regarded by many as a genuine instance of horrible state abuse of power, and that the tasered college student who spoke truth to power is somewhat of a hero or martyr for freedom lovers everywhere.

I thought that guy was a (semi) martyr too.... until HE apologized to the cops. When the only person standing up to the government at every turn is Ron "give me liberty" Paul, it's no wonder that his support is so fervent.
