It's insane for any progressively-minded person to support Ron Paul's campaign since he hails from the libertarian wing of the GOP, but it's pretty clear why he's resonated with a growing segment of the politically aware on both sides of politics: his message is simple and concise.
His newest TV ad is a case in point. Here, Paul explains his position on the war and economics in 30 seconds or less. No swelling music, no shots of "good Americans" busting their humps, no flags. Just him and his words.
