This country needs decent candidates more than it needs perfect ones. Paul and Kucinich have significant differences of opinion on various issues, and I disagree with both of them on some major points, but none of that matters.
They both have honest, thought-out opinions and are untethered to selfish external interests that aim to thrive at the country’s expense. Given the alternatives this alone makes them nearly divine.
If you support either candidate (Paul or Kucinich) you need to start viewing them as the same candidate. Normally that would be insane, but we aren’t dealing with anything “normal” here. We need to combine our efforts and thrust both of them into the mainstream dialogue.
Quite simply, if you care about changing America the way Paul and Kucinich speak of then support both candidates whenever possible. When they face each other in general elections then we’ll worry about their differences. Until then we’ve no room for debating subtleties; a unified approach pitting both of them against everyone else is our best hope for change.:
