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!

Stop H.R. 4872

We must not allow the Health Care Reform bill now before the House to pass!  Read it for yourself, if you have the time.  This is a monster that must be killed!

Stop the death of America!

Have any of our Congresspeople read it?  I highly doubt it.
