Ron Paul in his own words, and in the words of the founders

When faced with a skilled interviewer like Bob Schieffer, Ron Paul shows himself to be an ideologue with no depth of understanding about the results of the extreme positions he advocates.  He seems completely unconcerned with what would happen if he had his way essentially because he believes with all his heart that everything would be okay.  He is what our founding fathers called a "doctrinaire".  Considering Ron Paul's alleged respect for the worldview of America's founders, I propose that we restore their usage of the word "doctrinaire" with respect to Ron Paul: one who advocates policies based primarily on ideological bias and with insufficient concern for real world needs and effects.
