Why is it that when anyone offers a view that is different to yours you have to behave like a six year old?

You’re missing the point: The Youtube channel in the link contains vile content, such as Holocaust denial videos. Content there is suspect at best.

But Ardun didn’t even address that in his/her response.

Ardun wants us to ‘overlook’ that.

Ron Paul’s newsletters in the 1990s are filled with racist crap. Paul supporters say that he didn’t really write the racist articles, he only published them in newsletters, such as Ron Paul’s Freedom Report or Ron Paul’s Survival Report, without authors listed, and some with first-person accounts that indicate it was indeed Paul’s writing. Regardless of who actually wrote the articles, they were published under Ron Paul’s name.

Ardun wants us to ‘overlook’ that.

Ron Paul has huge support from white supremacists and Holocaust deniers. OK, so he can’t control who supports him. But it doesn’t matter to him. “I’ll go to anybody who I think I can convert to change their viewpoints — so that would be to me incidental,” he said. “I’m always looking at converting people to look at liberty the way I do” Paul said.

In 2008, Paul endorsed Chuck Baldwin for president. Chuck Baldwin is a racist nutcase who has written a weekly column for VDARE, a racist, anti-immigrant, anti-Semitic group.

There are hundreds of other examples of Paul’s racism or support of racists, just Google and see for yourself.

And the fruit doesn’t fall far from the tree: Paul’s son, State Senator Rand Paul said, in an interview on TV, that business should have the right to discriminate, that blacks have no right to expect the freedom to eat in a restaurant.

But my real issue is that Ardun, like most Paul supporters, is so strident in his/her support of Paul, so dogmatic about some of the good ideas that Paul has, that he/she overlooks the elephant in the room: Paul is a nutcase racist.

I supported Obama in the last US presidential election. But supporting Obama wasn’t a belief or religion. Supporting Ron Paul is a belief system to his supporters. It is dogma in the extreme and as history teaches us, any dogma in the extreme is harmful.
