Skip to comments.Ron Paul for President, Are You Freaking kidding Me
Posted on 12/29/2011 10:43:07 AM PST by TheNewPatriot
All you Ron Paul supporters, you are obviously one digit short of a normal IQ or have a single digit IQ. No conservative believes we had anything to do with 911 or believes we brought it on ourselves. Once you step into the realm of 911 being America's fault, you're in the realm of kook ville anti-America rhetoric. I don't want a President that's going to sympathize with our enemies and rationalize it as it must be our fault. We have that already with Obamalama. If you like that, vote for Hussein. Also, being a military veteran, I'm sure as hell not voting for some clueless idiot that denies there's still a threat out there against America and wants to deal with it by dismantling our military. Mr. Paul demonstrates that he has a dangerous and fundamental misunderstanding of the threat posed to every American citizen by radical Islam and the little Hitler running Iran.
Let's also not forget the racist newspaper. Don't even go there with the excuse he had no idea what was being printed. You have to be walking Mr. Magoo not knowing your name is attached to such racist filth. Bottom line, Mr. Paul is many things, but conservative is not one of them and he isn't the answer America is looking for to return to that shinning light on the hill of greatness. Greatness doesn't come from being a pacifist or supporter of leftist social policies.
Quoted for Truth.
Any candidate who shows the least sign of cutting the budget and the size and power of the FedGov, along with a reasonable understanding of the US Constitution as supreme law of the land, is likely to get my vote. Ron Paul would dry up and blow away if the Republican party would just field one (or preferably a few) such candidates.
I heard all that from the MSM, but do you have any quotes?
A lot of what the media considers racist, I do not. I would like to hear what was said. I understand Paul put his name on them, and that he profited - not the point. Do you have any racist quotes or not? thanks.
Well, for one, they’ll support Israel when the pushing and shoving begin. There’s a MASSIVE divide between the candidate I favor and Ron Paul. The primary difference will be the perception that Ahmajinedad has about the global ramifications of his actions if the US is unwilling to support Israel.
Let's ask the admin moderator and the website owner.
“Sorry, you dont get to be an elder statesman when you have no idea about the racist magazine you produced under your name and now try to deny”
No, you get to be impeached ala Nixon and Clinton. Apparently that’s how you become an elder statesman, because that’s what the MSM tells us and, despite all their denials, folks here follow the MSM.
Why do I say that? Because I’ve watched the media bring up faults on each leading Conservative/Republican candidate (except Romney), and like good little lemmings, the folks here pile on to condemn them. The attitude that predominates is none of the candidates are perfect, so let’s flame them all and let the Libs pick who gets to lose to Obama.
I should have made some popcorn instead of this sandwich for luch....this is getting good....
I am going to the frig. to get another Miller lite. It is our only hope. I do think it is true that many of the younger crowd follows Dr. Paul because of his stand on the drug war. I don’t smoke pot, but after this I might need to.
“Ron Paul for President, Are You Freaking kidding Me”
I would include Romney and yes Newt, in that statement!
Mr. Lite has my vote~
Kinzua rode the lighting bolt.
Kinzua rides the lightning.
I didn’t see your post before I posted! LOL
When I got to your post and read it I checked and he’d been zotted.
Just saying, I’ll take Paul over Obama any day. His stupid foreign policy positions are not as bad Obama’s domestic policies...
I can think of lot of people I’d prefer over Paul, though. Problem is, they’re not running.
Definitely a strange lot of people, very strange indeed.
Guilt by association?
Right,......... typical Paultard response.
Already said I’m not a Ron Paul supporter. The tagline should make it obvious enough.
Just keep on talking.......By the way, is the hair starting to stand up on back of your neck yet? (That’s usually the first warning sign.)
Actually, I've always liked him, and I agree with your assessment. However, his career is as a political campaigner. I like how he adds to the discussion. So I donate money to his campaigns at the start.
Ultimately the President is the CEO and CIC, and chief protector of the Constitution. I really have to ask, which candidate makes the better executive, the executive who must select the people who will carry out the duties of the government? Which candidate has the experience to understand the role of CIC and order the effective direction of the armed forces? Which candidate will respect the limits on government set forth in the Constitution?
I think Candidate Ron Paul falls terribly short as to CEO/CIC experience, but his respect and understanding of the Constitution exceeds all others as much as the Sun outshines the stars.
Civilization is on the edge, and we need a candidate who is the most effective in all of the respects above, not just one. The Democrats have not fielded a candidate with these qualities in the history of my adult life. They seek naked and uncontrolled power to impose their misguided ideal upon us all, and when they achieve it, they are tyrants - and proud of it. We need someone who may successfully oppose this. If we can't achieve this, I fear we will see the fall of the American civilization in my lifetime. Already it may be too late to prevent the catastrophe.
So you have completed your due diligence and read the quotes from the newsletters (a quick search will display several of them) and you believe they are not racist?
Since you must have seen the quotes, don’t you have to wonder why he now calls MLK one of his heroes now when he called him a pedophile in his newsletters?
Don’t you have to wonder why he tries to deny writing those things if they are not racist and offensive?
Are the new marching orders to the Paul cult to defend the newsletter quotes rather than deny he owns them?
It's already begun. JR has already said that if Romney wins the nomination, FR will become a third-party site and no longer support Republicans. Ostensibly the same goes for Ron Paul winning the nomination too.
The great thing about a third party is that in 30 years, this conceptual third party MIGHT be able to claim 25% of the voting population, with 25% going to the Republicans and Democrats running the show with the remaining half.
But in the immediate future, we'll see it claim a circle of influence that hovers below the Green Party and barely above the Libertarian Party.
Fun times ahead. We thought income tax rates and spending were high now, wait until Pelosi, Reid, and Obama and their heirs to power run the government with absolutely no real opposition. What may happen in 30 years kind of becomes anticlimactic. It's kind of like wondering if you'll have knee problems in your old age after your legs have just been amputated.
“Well, for one, theyll support Israel when the pushing and shoving begin. Theres a MASSIVE divide between the candidate I favor and Ron Paul. The primary difference will be the perception that Ahmajinedad has about the global ramifications of his actions if the US is unwilling to support Israel.”
You’re being sarcastic here right? You just forgot to out the “/s” at the end of your statement right? Either that or you’re living in your own little fantasy world. None, and I mean NONE of these RINOs do anything but pressure Israel into more and more concessions (land for peace) with their terrorist neighbors. Do you really think that they’ll line up solidly with Israel when the shooting starts? LOL! They’ll do exactly what they always do when the shooting starts, use every available lever at hand to force the Israeli Army to pull it’s punches and stop hurting those poor little terrorists. Just look what happened the last time Israel invaded southern Lebanon and tell me again why these pathetic excuses for conservatives would do anything different.
Too late for these two trolls [Kinzua & rokkitapps].
I thought the reason we still have troops in S Korea is that the war stopped due to a negotiated cease-fire. No one surrendered, no one (technically) won.
I agree with every thing that you’ve said and will most likely vote for Ron Paul for those very same reasons. That being said, my assessment of current culture and politics is that the majority of people don’t want an end to the current paradigm of big daddy government handing out candy and providing “protection” to us and the world.
That’s not to say it won’t end, just that it won’t end voluntarily but rather when we have no means to continue with this insanity. We are being given a choice, maybe not the ideal choice but a choice none the less and most people here are firmly in the “let’s continue the government party” camp, even if they do call themselves conservatives.
Agreed, Paul hasn't a chance in hell of election - but, if he pulled off the nomination we'd be assuring more Obama.
Agreed, there's a pot load of RINOs being offered and probably the most RINO being touted as the for-sure nominee - in an "anyone but Obama" election the GOP is doing it's best to revisit 2008.
As for "frothing at the mouth over Ron Paul" I imagine you have read nearly identical comments made about each of the hopefuls - OK, granted that Crazy isn't so often used - but you need to allow me and others an opinion, and that is, sadly, nuts.
Fact is, if you took a poll of FR, there's NO ONE that even a large minority here is in love with. I like Bachman but she can be pretty zany herself, I like Santorum but he's about as exciting as gravel, I like Newt's brain but he did screw up when he had the chance and deep down I wonder about someone who writes alternative histories, Romney is probably less popular here than is Paul, and the beat goes on.
My real concerns with Paul are:
(a) He gives the other side someone to point at while repeating "see...we told you so". And;
(b) In the event he was actually elected be would havde to rule very much like Obama in order to do any of the things you cited.
Kinzua deleted for being an idiot and a WRong Paul spam monkey. ZOT!
To be added or removed from the Viking Kitty/ZOT Ping List, FReepmail Darkwing104 or 50mm.
This is a good concise ad and article about the issue:
And if you think a GOP RINO like Huntsman can come up with that, just think what the Rats and media would do if they needed to roll out the racist Ron Paul Newsletters? Ron Paul would lose the electoral votes of ALL 57 states.
They've been coming in here (and getting ZOTTED) in droves lately!
No, but a lying WRong Paul spam monkey, rokkitapps, just got deleted. ZOT!

Yes, I do believe my preferred candidate would support Israel when, speaking to the point I was making about a nuclear-armed Iran, they perform a preemptive airstrike to eliminate the threat.
While I support nearly every thing Israel does to protect its borders, in this instance, a Lebanon invasion and air strikes into Iran are comparing apples and felafel.
Look, the "little fantasy world" crap tells me I'm arguing with an idiot who is resorting to stooping. I'm done with you. I'm getting a contact buzz. (see how that sounds?)
At least 8 in the last few days by my count. Seems to be a trend.
so any people who post anything pro-paul have accounts deleted?Nah. Newbie TROLLS like you Get The Zot too.
"Well ... Bye!"
I kind of wish he was on the other side. He is so off the wall, it would be fun to watch. Except that he is “one of us.”.
And some of 'em aren't exactly newbies.
But we sure don't need that Code Pink, blame-America garbage around here.
Ron Paul may be a lot of things, but he's no conservative.
Ron Paul is an anti-Semitic, Iran-enabling truther jackass who believes America is responsible for 9/11.
Anyone who would vote for that anti-American slimeball is scum.
“Agreed, Paul hasn’t a chance in hell of election - but, if he pulled off the nomination we’d be assuring more Obama.”
Even though I’m voting for him I realize that he doesn’t have any hope of getting the GOP nomination. The GOP leaders will make sure of that, in fact they have already signaled that Mitt is their choice by doing what they did in Virginia to Newt and Perry so the fix is in. Kind of reminds me of the Bob Dole nomination and may have the same results. We get some tired old RINO as the GOP candidate and then even the O looks like a better bet to most people come the general election. Playing it safe doesn’t always win.
Eleven since 12/27.

“Anyone who would vote for that anti-American slimeball is scum.”
I don’t believe that Ron Paul is anti-American and although I don’t agree with everything that he has said or done I do believe that he is the most passionate about the federal government staying within it’s constitutional boundaries which in my opinion makes him very pro-American.
So many I’ve lost count. LOL
Kinzua definite troll, the other, not so obvious but very possible. Wow, the ole zot button is on fire today. I think I’m heading out of here lest I say something and it gets taken the wrong way. Too much heat in the kitchen for me, plus my wife actually asked for some help in the kitchen. :) She’s cooking so I’m going to go feed the dogs. See ya’ll later!!
*Note to self....I need to find some cool, new ZOT gifs because it looks like there are going to be a lot and it’s not even January yet. Oh boy, this is going to be like Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride for the nest year.
Ron Paul isn't a conservative. He's a libertarian, and he's an anti-Semitic, Iran-enabling truther who thinks America is responsible for 9/11.
If you're going to post, get it right.
