Is Following the Constitution Dangerous? Or, Devastating?

I posted a video link on my Facebook page last week that showed how Fox News' Sean Hannity used a different clip, to show a larger crowd at an event, than what was really there. Sean Hannity got caught and called out by Jon Stewart of Comedy Central on using the wrong clip. I called it propaganda.
Hannity apologized on his show after Jon Stewart called him out on it, and said it was an "inadvertent mistake". I said that if anybody has done video work, they would know the files are usually stored by month/date/year being obvious, so they can go back and find the clips if needed, and that there was no way for it to simply be a "mistake". I believe Mr. Hannity openly lied on his program about the video, especially given the number of "mistakes" Fox News makes like that.
I am not a fan of the "mainstream media" in any sense, and feel that they do a great job dumbing down the general population, by keeping them distracted with non-issues.
It was on that post, that another Facebook friend commented trying to defend Hannity, and we ended up in a political discussion on who I am supporting for President.
I told him I am supporting Ron Paul, and after answering multiple questions from him on different topics, he resulted with the propaganda spilled by the media, that Ron Paul would be "devastating" to the nation.

I'm just trying to figure this out. How is following the Constitution of the United States, dangerous as some like to hint, and how would Ron Paul be devastating to the country for wanting to follow the rule of law?
Saying Ron Paul would be devastating to the United States as President for wanting to follow the Constitution, is like saying a Christian is dangerous/devastating to the church for following the 10 Commandments.

Friday the 13th - Nightmare on Pennsylvania Ave

Today is Friday, the 13th.  Oddly, I think the radio this morning said this year has several Friday the 13ths, and they will fall 13 weeks apart from each other (didn't search for the source, so not positive on this).
Anyway, I have never watched any of the Friday the 13th movies, so I have never had any nightmares because of them. But I am familiar with the nightmare scenarios happening in Washington D.C., and many conservatives like myself are probably wondering if the nightmare associated with Pennsylvania Avenue will continue next year.  
Will President Obama be defeated by either Mitt Romney or Ron Paul?  We only have a 11 months to wait until we find out, but like the Friday the 13th series, I'm expecting the Pennsylvania Avenue one to get a sequel as well, unfortunately.

Jon Huntsman Supports NDAA, and TARP

It seems Jon Huntsman's presidential campaign has been getting a bit more free media attention than it should, based off of one single YouTube video that was apparently produced by his own daughters, to make it look like an attack against his campaign.

Of course, the media has already done damage to another candidate's campaign, by playing the "guilt by association" card, when the only evidence that exists shows it was most likely Jon Huntsman's campaign that produced and published the video, and was the only campaign that stood to benefit from the video getting press coverage.

Now, what issues does Jon Huntsman have the mainstream media is not talking about right now? There are two big issues that every voter should be made aware of immediately I believe:
1) He is on the record for supporting TARP, the government's welfare program to the corporations that did not run their businesses properly
2) He is on the record, officially, for supporting NDAA, the National Defense Authorization Act. What is this act? There is one section that was written, which allows for the indefinite detention of American citizens.

The videos below show Governor Huntsman in his own words, supporting both NDAA and TARP:

Rick Perry Drops Out of Presidential Race? What Does Return and Reassess Mean?

Rick Perry placed 5th tonight in Iowa's 2012 Republican Caucus, and in his speech he said he will now be returning to Texas, and will assess the future of his campaign.  He mentioned how he is not sure of the path moving forward, and he did not seem to mention any further states such as New Hampshire or South Carolina.
It sounds like Governor Perry is seriously considering dropping out after placing 5th in Iowa, which I find surprising considering he did better than Michele Bachmann, and probably could do decently well in South Carolina with proper ads.
Who will Rick Perry endorse if/when he drops out of the Republican presidential race?
