Comparisons between Ron Paul and 300

So Saturday night I saw 300 again, this time in Raleigh with my friend Chad. And I think that of all the movies that I have seen so far this year, 300 is easily my favorite, and the best overall in my opinion. I just found out that it's coming out on DVD next month, too!

If you haven't seen 300 yet, remember how riled-up a lot of us got when Braveheart came out? 300 is that kind of blood-stirring good. This is exactly the kind of story we need for the time we live in. And YouTube user BoruJudasDedrich feels the same way, too...

Here's the video that he put together, comparing what's going on regarding presidential candidate Ron Paul with Leonidas and the Spartans in 300. I found myself thinking much the same on Saturday night when we were watching this... but I really doubt that I could have done anything as beautiful and passionate as what BoruJudasDedrich has done here. Just one thing I want to know: where did he get all that 300 footage?!? :-)

Thanks for the clip. I haven't seen 300 yet. I almost see RP as more of a Gandalf type. The loss in the '88 election could almost be seen as when he went from grey to white. Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli are representative of what a small yet effective government can do, the hobbits represent the people. The all fought off 'The Hand.' RP has made a career out of fighting 'The Hand' in our gov't which every assassinated president opposed in some form or another. Now he's leadin' the people to do what it takes to toss the ring of power into the fire. Either that or RP works for 'em, in which case we'd be extremely screwed.
