"Women and students against Ron Paul"??? I'm confused. Judging by the dread-locks, I can tell she is an upstanding citizen. So, what's her problem? She must not want her life to improve... Interesting.

What do you even mean 'judging by her dreadlocks'? Your words betray the fact that your mind is sealed tightly shut.

My mind is sealed tightly with a NORMAL HAIRCUT Louis. That's beside the point anyway. Having dreadlocks is NOT a very credible look. I don't know what world you live in. Ron Paul is one of the greatest politicians to ever walk the face of the earth and it upsets me when a crazy @$$ looking women with DREADLOCKS makes such an outragious statement. I would like to hear her side of the story. I do not, however, want to get comments from cry-babies.

Pretty sure there is an article with a quote from her if you are that interested in hearing what she says.
