As one sees with any movement, there can be different factions. In the Albany Ron Paul movement, there are two different "Meetup" groups. One is run by a guy who seems a bit off. Well, okay, to a lot of people outside the movement, we all look crazy. But this guy looks crazy to most of us inside.
For those who want to find the "sane" side of the movement, check out the sensible Albany Ron Paul Meetup. It also happens to be a group interested in the Steven Vasquez campaign (who was endorsed by none other than Dr. Ron Paul himself).
