Skip to comments.Ron Paul for President, Are You Freaking kidding Me

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.
RoPaul wouldn’t even be a better choice over Barack Obama.
“Conservatism is about ideas, not just kicking people to the curb when they think 1% differently and agree on 99%”
The problem there is that Ron Paul is NOT a conservative. He is a libertarian and a racist crackpot libertarian at that. The focus of this site is to “further conservatism in America”. Ron Paul and his racist, anti-Israel, isolationism, blame America, support traitors, ignore radical nation nukes, sympathize with the OWS parasites, Alex Jones participation, pandering to fringe groups, and more is NOT “furthering conservatism in America”.
Right, it’s no big deal that Iran gets a Nuke and Paul said they have every right to have one. (That way they will force the big bad bully USA to “negotiate” with them for a change, instead of attacking them.)
You must be one brain dead idiot to believe that all that matters is we reign in the Fed. and what is going on in the ME is trivial.
It is conservative to be world police and military subsidizer when there are a host of enemy who attack us around the world, attack our friends and allies, and who try to destabilize self governing countries.
With 8 billion people in the world, we need to do things efficiently. One way to do things efficiently is to trade, using price signals and personal experience of quality to aid our choices of what to do, and when to do it.
Trade requires transport. Transport requires some degree of security against caravan raiders (as Mohammed was), pirates (as the Barbary pirates were). The problem is not new. The problem of piracy in the Mediterranean was not resolved until the French went into Algeria, the Spanish went into Morocco, the Italians went into Libya, and the English went into Egypt.
The Knights Templar partially resolved caravan raiders by developing financial transactions that would take pilgrims money at the start of the trip, and return it to them at the end, so during the trip, there was nothing to steal. Caravan raiding became a all loss, no gain proposition. Caravan raiders then sold themselves to Saladin, who was resolved to kill the goose if he couldn’t help himself to the eggs.
It is an old problem.
Agree, he cannot become our President.
I have heard the racist attack, but I haven’t heard any actual racist stuff from him, can you give a quote (admin this is just a question, I want to know, please don’t delete my account)
Funny, that’s what I said about “President Obama.”
As Romney said: Hell yes, I’ll vote for Paul over Obama.
Not that I can’t think of a bunch of people I’d vote for before Paul.
And who cares about Paul’s “racist newspapers” when Obama was sitting in “Reverend” Wright’s den of hate for years?
Now that's the way to win friends and influence people...
So we need 11 carrier groups because of the barbary pirates? I don’t follow.
I just don’t get the fear of countries across the world, when we have opened our borders and are actively encouraging a foreign invasion from the south. Countries thousands of miles away don’t scare me as much as the Mexican invasion does.
I don’t know what Paul says about that- that is my own opinion. Please don’t delete my account if I am agreeing with Paul.
What do you consider to be the correct alternative to what you call Cut and Run?
If it involves increasing our foreign deployments do you have any concerns that America may have difficulty financing these?
Should/would financial concerns limit in any way our choice of international military operations?
I can forgive Jim for his myopia on this issue. However, he hasn't repealed the FR policy against personal attacks, and just because Jim engages on it from time to time doesn't give anyone else license to ignore it.
You don't like Ron Paul? Fine, neither do I. But, if you choose to post a screed about why you don't like Ron Paul, concentrate on Ron Paul, rather than attacking or insulting his supporters.
The same goes for supporters of Perry, Gingrich, Romney, or any other of the assortment of nuts currently campaigning for the Republican nomination.
If you want to attack someone else, I'd suggest you start with the Republican party leadership that couldn't recruit a candidate that can defeat the most unpopular President in recent memory.
The Racist newsletters were just brought up to illustrate where the main attacks will come from in the MSM.
But more importantly, Paul’s belief that Iran has every right to have nuclear weapons is just plain, well, you know, kind of sort of nutty, INSANE AND ILLOGICAL, like Paul’s belief that 9/11 was an inside job!
But why do we have to keep explaining that to your kind?
I’m not a RoPaul supporter.
Those who are, tend to swing strongly to the Libertarian side.
The success of RoPaul can be laid at the failure of other R candidates
to address some of the deep-seated issues that are undermining our
Loss of Privacy
Rise of the police state
Devaluation of our dollar and monetary system
Military bases in more than 100 countries
If someone on our side doesn’t care about these things and
carry the flag for them, there will be a third party run
that undermines the R candidate in the general election.
RoPaul supporters are essentially the libertarian version
of the tea party. They will either be satisfied enough that
their issues are paid attention to and vote R or they will
be disillusioned and go elsewhere.
There are lots of honest nuts and crazy people around. What has that got to do with anything? Because they are honest about their loony ideas doesn't make them any better.
but I tell you Ron Paul is not as off base as you folks want to make him out. If you do a little research into what he has said you will find a great deal of sound reasoning behind it.
The more research one does, the more apparent it is Ron Paul is a wackadoodle. Do you think it is within the realm of sane for a presidential candidate to speak in support of the traitor Bradley Manning? Do you think it is reasonable for Paul to associate himself with truther crackpots and further suggest that 9-11 may have been an inside job? Do you think it is reasonable to suggest that we can't build a barrier along the southern border because it may be used to keep American's from fleeing......to Mexico? These are just some of the bizarre things Ron Paul has expressed - the list really goes on and on.
Just read his newsletters and you will find the answer to your question. For decades he published them with his name in big bold letters across the top, hired the people to put them out, had name as editor in the box at the bottom, collected the proceeds from them, and fifteen years ago stated that they were his.
