Why the hatred towards Ron Paul?

I noticed this just earlier today, a stripe through Ron Paul's name. This makes me mad, as a libel towards Dr. Paul and vandalism to my personal property. I wish I knew the creep who committed this heinous act so I could help them understand the result of their actions. Dr. Paul is a true patriot and should be honored, not hated. Long live freedom!
