I see myself as a fiscally conservative person with a few liberal opinions concerning our social concerns. But, some of his ideas are down right scary concerning our military, amongst other things.
He does have his moments of apparent lucidness, like decriminalizing pot. But that is just the rare intersection between his 100% dogma driven beliefs, and pragmatic reality. It doesn't really mean he's right, it is just that his dogma sometimes intersects with pragmatic rational policies that happen to be right.
It's like a blind man driving a car who happens to drive through a busy intersection when the light is green.
