Ron Paul writes in 2003 about the War on Christmas:
Through perverse court decisions and years of cultural indoctrination, the elitist, secular Left has managed to convince many in our nation that religion must be driven from public view. The justification is always that someone, somewhere, might possibly be offended or feel uncomfortable living in the midst of a largely Christian society, so all must yield to the fragile sensibilities of the few. The ultimate goal of the anti-religious elites is to transform America into a completely secular nation, a nation that is legally and culturally biased against Christianity.
This growing bias explains why many of our wonderful Christmas traditions have been lost. Christmas pageants and plays, including Handelâ€™s Messiah, have been banned from schools and community halls. Nativity scenes have been ordered removed from town squares, and even criticized as offensive when placed on private church lawns. Office Christmas parties have become taboo, replaced by colorless seasonal parties to ensure no employees feel threatened by a â€œhostile environment.â€ Even wholly non-religious decorations featuring Santa Claus, snowmen, and the like have been called into question as Christmas symbols that might cause discomfort. Earlier this month, firemen near Chicago reluctantly removed Christmas decorations from their firehouse after a complaint by some embittered busybody. Most noticeably, however, the once commonplace refrain of â€œMerry Christmasâ€ has been replaced by the vague, ubiquitous â€œHappy Holidays.â€ But what holiday? Is Christmas some kind of secret, a word that cannot be uttered in public? Why have we allowed the secularists to intimidate us into downplaying our most cherished and meaningful Christian celebration?
Why is this guy being so hyped on the internet? He’s as loony as any other republican candidate save Huckabee who has made looniness into an esoteric art. Do I need to reread Atlas Shrugged to get it?

Here’s another one by Dr. Ron called The Trouble With Forced Integration where he attacks the Civil Rights Act of 1964. You know, the act that nullified Jim Crow laws in the South. No wonder the white supremacists love Dr. Ron.
