Skip to comments.Ron Paul Your Spaceship Called, They're Ready To Beam You Up

Whenever I post something negative about Ron Paul (which is just about every time I post about him), I get the NASTIEST comments and emails. He doesn't have a lot of supporters but those that do support him do so with a passion. That isn't particularly bothersome, after all people should have some passion. Problem is Ron Paul is a "drooling crazy " type. This guy must have of fallen out the crazy tree and hit every branch on the way down.
Today while he questioned Fed Chair Ben Bernanke Paul turned on his Crazy overdrive and made some absolutely batty allegations about the [F]ed, including accusing them of participating in the Watergate Scandal.

man I hate to agree with you rudeboy but I have to on this one.
This guy’s site always makes my computer crash. Does anyone else have a problem with that site?
Don’t be a hater!
Soooo off-topic, but every time I see a post of yours I click on your profile page. It never fails to make me laugh!
The claims aren’t “outrageous” at all. Paul asked legitimate questions, such as the Watergate angle, which have been raised by mainstream historians and journalists for decades. Some of us don’t treat Ben “socialist” Bernanke as a god.
For fear of getting flamed...I don’t understand why Ron Paul gets such a bad rap.
After all, I agree with most of what he stands for and at least, unlike the majority of politicians in DC, his actions match his words.
Who could be against:
- Smaller government
- Fiscal responsibility
- Less taxes
- Less spending
- Closing our borders and enforcing immigration laws
- Auditing and dissolving the FED
- free trade without agreements (NAFTA/CAFTA)
- supports Israel
- nonintervention of other countries
- defederalization of the health care system
- belief in the rights the Constitution and Declaration of Independence give us
I know he may seem kooky with some of the things he’s said, but last I checked, a lot of what he’s said is coming true.
If you want to paint Bernanke as a socialist, there are better ways to do it than by asking him if he loaned money to Saddam Hussein.
I don’t think so.
The Fed is scared to death of real transparency exactly because they have these sorts of skeletons in their closets.
It isn’t a matter of whether or not Bernanke is a “socialist.”
It is a matter of whether or not the Fed is authorized to conduct foreign policy. They’re not.
Did you see this?
The funniest part about Paul in that committee hearing yesterday was his shrewd reasoning that “Congress should be given the opportunity to eff things up like Greenspan did.”
IE8 has a problem with his site. It is always reloading his page due to some error.
Paul didn't asked whether "he" loaned money to Saddam. He asked whether the Fed did and whether Bernanke (as current head of the Fed) would open up the records on this issue and others. The question of whether Bernanke, as head of the Fed, would open the records about possible past corrupt pratices of his agency is no legitimate than the question of whether he is a socialist. Congressmen ask these questions all time about past behavior and the federal government has had many, many investigations to uncover such behavior, such as the recent Emmett Till investigation.
BTW, you apparently do not think Bernanke is a socialist? Why?
Congress has the authority to do so, per the US Constitution.
The Fed does not.
Congress gave the authority to Fed, if you recall.
Ron Paul owes his current prominence to the fact that the Republican Party, for the last twenty years, has been so totally asleep at the switch on the issue of limited government.
Yes, they did. And they can take it right back, because it is only a law, passed by Congress.
