Optimus Prime & Ron Paul


I wasn't sure if this should go under the movies section or the politics section, so I put it under neither.

I saw Transformers (the movie) the other day and it was very reminiscent of when I used to watch the cartoons as a kid. They even used some of the original sound-effects for the transforming sound.

But the most interesting thing I came up with at the end of the movie was that it seems that Optimus Prime is the robot version of Ron Paul.

Optimus Prime: We must not harm the humans.
Ron Paul: We must not disobey the Constitution.

Different words, similar message. Okay, so maybe that's a stretch. But political innuendo was littered throughout the movie. Such as Optimus Prime's line, "Freedom is the right of all sentient beings." If only he had "REVOLUTION" with the "EVOL" backwards painted across his chest.
