It's brilliant politics for the Romulans to substitute a YouTube at their convention for an appearance by the real Ron Paul; that way, they control the Ron who will be seen, in their ongoing attempt to coopt the Ron Paul movement into Neocon Party II.
The video will talk about Ron as a wonderful family man who delivered 4,000 babies; a long-term fighter for lower spending, a balanced budget, and Fed transparency, just like Romney and Ryan; a great congressional baseball player; and a super guy.
Austrian economics? War? Interventionism? The CIA? Militarism? The police state? Corporatism? Torture? Concentration camps? Sound money? Sound banking? Secret arrests and imprisonment? What are those? Oh, and Ron--the final message will be--don't let the door hit you on the way out.
