Ron Paul and the Left: Pro and Con

Sherry Wolf, from the editorial board of the "International Socialist Review", critiques antiwar / pro-peace candidate Ron Paul in "The Freedom to Starve / Why the Left Should Reject Ron Paul" at http://www.counterpunch.org/wolf12122007.html.

Justin Raimondo, of antiwar.com, critiques Wolf in "Ron Paul: Slings and Arrows, Left and Right / The Trots and the neo-Trots gang up on Ron" at http://www.antiwar.com/justin/?articleid=12053.

Meanwhile, Joshua Frank, author of "Left Out! How Liberals Helped Reelect George W. Bush", urges the antiwar left to support Ron Paul in "An Open Letter to the Antiwar Left / Ron Paul's Campaign Deserves Our Attention" at http://counterpunch.org/frank12122007.html.

(I think Frank's advice cuts both ways. If it turns out that Ron Paul does not get nominated but Dennis Kucinich does, I would hope that libertarians and sane Republicans would give their vigorous support to Dennis.)
