Digg.comâ€™s inclusion of a politics section has given many political sites a springboard to attract a larger audience. For some of these groups the temptation to promote their political advocacy has proven too strong to stop them from violating Diggâ€™s terms of service. The websites listed in this article appear to have crossed the line to varying degrees.
So Ron Paul (presidential candidate for 2008) supporters have been scheming Digg.com to get their pro Ron Paul message out there and bring as much attention to him as possible. I think this is somewhat of a dirty trick and I am glad they where caught.
So what are your opinions on him? Love him? Hate him? What?

I like Ron Paul.
I don’t know anything about Digg, but it looks like some Ron Paul supporters were not good guests.
Well, if out of thousands of web sites and mailing lists only a handful were listed, that behaviour is not representative of Ron Paul supporters. Boy, am I glad. So, the word “So” up there, in my opinion, should be “Some”.
I suspect most people are like me. I realized things are seriously wrong. I learned about Ron Paul. I decided he is (98%) right and should be president. I got curious. I started doing searches and I find lots of others like him. Amazing!

I think it’s kind of silly that he’s running as a Republican, even though it’s the most realistic thing for him to do (third party candidate, probably wouldn’t establish himself).
There are some ideals that libertarians stand for that I can get on board with, and many that I’m not really in agreement with. Paul has somewhat shifted in his previous belief that we need to rid our country of the IRS, and instead has been touting lower taxes like the rest of the republican party. I love his stance on the war, and was really amazed when he stood there during the GOP debate and talked about blowback… he was right on target in that regard.
