Is it physically possible for her to “smite” anyone?

We need to bear in mind there is a reverse operation chaos going on in Iowa. Democrats will be out in force to vote for Paul and try to saddle us with that turkey.

 
I was going to reply to this most excellent comment earlier, but the zots got to flying and I got distracted. But you have a great point. I really don't know for a fact that liberal democracts and libertarians are the reason Paul is polling so well in Iowa. But it makes sense.
 
Why else would such a liberal kook like Paul be doing so well in the GOP race?

Pretty bad infestation.

They're like cockroaches. Just when you think you've gotten the last one you open a cupboard door and out drop a dozen more.

This will get much worse before it gets better, probably culminating in a WRong Paul Purge thread.

“Ron Paul isn’t a conservative. He’s a libertarian”

Well he may have Libertarian leanings but last I saw he still had an “R” after his name. And espouses conservative fiscal and domestic policies plus he wants us out of all the world police actions we’ve stuck our noses into. I guess he just doesn’t fit your definition of conservative which is:

1. for the war on terror and locking up people without a trail for as long as those in power want and having little old ladies sexually assaulted by TSA at the airport
2. for the war on drugs and allowing the police to seize your property and then making you prove that it wasn’t the result of illegal activity and having SWAT teams blow away marines (there is never an ex-marine ;) ) in Arizona
3. for giving lip service to supporting Israel while pressuring them to give in to terrorists in yet another misguided land for peace deal
4. Declaring most forcefully that they are for “sound fiscal policy” while taking bribes (campaign contributions) from the Wall Street bankers and bailing out insolvent cronies with your money to the tune of a few $ trillion
5. Being the world policeman and fighting meaningless “actions” all across the globe while beating their chest to prove how manly they are

There is a whole range of conservative ideas but you seem to think that only those the fit your narrow definition of conservative can claim that label.

I can’t say that Paul would be worse than Obama, but we can do better. I mean I would do better than Obama and I have ZERO experience. You would probably end up on Mount Rushmore if we elected you President.

I think what we are seeing here is a full blown war between the neocon wing of the republican party and the paleocon wing. While Paul is not really a paleocon, his foreign policy is to crazy even for paleocons he is very close on domestic policy and spending. Sadly the neocons (Rove, Bush, Newt, Mitt) are in complete control so traditional conservatives (small/honest government conservatives, paleocons) are being purged. The ruling class does not take the threat of small honest constitutional government lightly. I personally don’t think Paul should be president, his world view is anti Israel, 19th century and this is not the 19th century however on a number of issues Paul makes a lot of sense. The attacks on him and his supporters are IMHO way over the top.

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.

From God's lips to your post.

What chafes me the most is that after so many election cycles they're still so arrogant and/or blind as to be doing it again.

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.”.

Ron Paul is NOT "one of us". He is a crazy Anti-Semitic nut job that should have been shunned by the GOP long ago.

I was a California Libertarian for years. Didn’t go for the dope thing, but other than that, yeah.

Moved to Texas, to Ron Paul’s district. Met some of the racists with whom he associated. Lots of southern partisans who felt that wrong side won the “Late Unpleasantness Between the States”. Couldn’t get served with my family in restaurants where he had functions.

This was in the 1990s, kids. By contrast, the Democrats worked hard at getting illegals to vote, and the Republicans thought that mixed race marriages were unremarkable.

Just because someone puts an R behind their name does not make it true.
Republicans do not blame America for 9/11. Republicans do not want to destroy our military. Republicans do not endorse the likes of Cynthia McKinney. Republicans do not want to put perverts into the military. Republicans are not anti-Semites. Republicans do not endorse OWS. Republicans do not think ridding the world of a terrorist like OBL is bad.
Cut and Run is no Republican. Even if HE puts an R behind his name.

You might get a kick from this if you haven't seen it. New Money might wipe you out-not much time left. The crazy Bushies tracking people with colored money. Massive unemployment. Welfare riots. IRS agents with AK47s. Fortunately there's a way to be saved, send $99 to a certain Congressman. Colored money apparently accepted.

(1) Young people are not really enthusiastic about fighting and paying for foreign wars.

(2) Young people think the military should be used to defend America, not as a tool for constantly meddling in the affairs of foreign countries.

(3) Young people believe that constant military and diplomatic interventions in the Middle East have sowed animosity toward the United States.

(4) Young people believe that Israel is more than capable of defending itself.

The American electorate is changing. Every two years there are more Millennial voters and fewer elderly voters. Young people don’t like American foreign policy. It will inevitably be changed through sheer demographics.

It is the over 45 crowd exclusively that believes Ron Paul is crazy. If you are under 45, you are more likely to believe that Newt Gingrich is crazy.

Unlike Gingrich, Paul doesn’t support a path to citizenship. He is also a fierce and reliable opponent of the welfare state.

Gutting the welfare state would do more to kill illegal immigration than almost anything because it would shut down the remittances system.

Ron Paul has an enormous following among young people. Anyone who has been to CPAC can tell you that. Millennials and Gen X’ers dislike the foreign wars and especially resent being forced to pay for them.

Those of us who are under 45 and who regularly use Facebook and Twitter can attest to the relative size of Ron Paul’s following compared to other candidates.

Newt Gingrich’s followers are almost exclusively over the age of 45. Ron Paul’s fan club is heavily under the age of 45.

Banning people doesn’t change the fact that the Boomers are getting older and comprise an ever shrinking percentage of the electorate whereas every four years there are more Gen X’er and Millennial voters.

Fighting that trend is like Caligula’s declaration of war on Poseidon. The globalist foreign policy of the post-WW2/post-Cold War era is doomed.

If it doesn’t die in this election cycle, it will die in 2016 or 2020. Paul’s surge since 2008 reflects that consensus among younger voters.

From the Des Moines Register posted about 6 hours ago:

“Paul responded by saying he supported the move to pursue the Sept. 11 terrorists.

He also clarified his stance on 9/11, saying the U.S. policies — not its people — were to blame for the attacks.

“They didn’t come here because you’re free and prosperous —they don’t go to Sweden and Switzerland,” Paul said. “…The 9/11 Commission said that the motivation was the fact that we were over there and we had been over there for a long time.””

He is not blaming America for the 9/11 attacks, he is rightly pointing out that because we choose to be involved in the ME and base our military over there we became a target for terrorism. It’s not a hard concept to understand, stick your nose in a hornets nest and you’ll get stung sooner or later. He has also said that he supported going after the terror groups that did this, just not the “nation building” that has caused us to be in Afghanistan for the past 10 years now.
