Skip to comments.Ron Paul Is A Crackpot

Great video, well worth hearing. Ron Paul's remarks about Iran, followed by commentaries of Levin, Rush and Beck all in one place.
why? Because he didn’t threaten to nuke Iran immediately upon his election? Sometimes the truth hurts.
Ron Paul knows the constitution.
Evidence suggests he is an anti-semite.
Paul has no chance of winning the nomination and he should be banned from any future debates since he takes time away from other candidates who are serious, and potential, candidates.
His supporters are even worse. Go check out Ron Paul forums and read the slime these people spout - sometimes you’d think you were on DU or Daily KOS. The anti-war, drug legalization stuff mixed with Federal Reserve conspiracy theories are beyond bizarre.
Ron Paul is a libertarian. He brings absolutely nothing to the Republican party. Virtually none of his supporters will actually vote for the actual GOP nominee. The ones who actually understand what Paul stands for will vote for the Libertarian candidate, and the rest (most of the college mushheads) will vote for Obama.
The very best thing that could happen would be for Paul to be honest, leave the GOP and run as a libertarian. At least then his supporters would be doing us a favor of depriving Obama of the ignorant pot head, peacenik “youth” vote.
This is news?
Paul is a major distraction in the debates. He is wasting the time of other candidates who have to comment on his crackpot views.His son should get the old fool to get off the stage. Other candidates should refuse to participate in any later debate that includes Paul.
IF FR had a “like” button, I’d use it for your post.
No, because he isn't a conservative. He does not belong in the Republican party.
Paul is just using the Republican label because he knows no one would pay any attention to him as a Libertarian. Every other Republican primary candidate will endorse the eventual GOP nominee (and it won't be Paul), but Ron Paul likely won't and his supporters will end up voting Libertarian or for Obama.
Go away Ron Paul, go back to the Libertarian party where you belong.
You are dead on here. Paul is only running as a Republican because the Libertarian party is a joke. He has no business in the debates or the GOP primary. He is just using them for a platform to promote his stupidity.
Most here on FR wont even listen to anything positive about RP. They hate him because they’ve drank the neocon cool-aid and don’t even realize it. I voted for him in the last primary.
There are two unwritten rules here.
1. You can’t like RP.
2. You can’t ever say anything bad about Israel.
Other than that, feel free to speak your mind.
Here in Austin, it is common to see “911 Inside Job” and Ron Paul bumper stickers. The cars are usually beat up pieces of crap driven by mutilated freaks.
They are sick puppies without exception.
All the way.
I like everything he says but being a purist ain’t gonna get you along in the world.
I don’t hate RP. He appears to be a good guy. However, he is a delusional about foreign policy and boarders on anti-semitism frequently.
duh why don’t you just say you don’t like Ron Paul
“Paul is a major distraction in the debates.”
I agree, and at the risk of annoying some, I think the same thing about Herman Caine.
I don’t know how they set the criteria for these things and I admit it would be a difficult task.
But hopefully as things move along some of these folks will start to be excluded.
I do like Rand Paul so much, but his father really comes across like a crackpot. LOL, that is really the exact word for him. A nice old fashioned word for a crazy person.
Maybe he’s not actually a crazy person, but he sure comes across like one.
And I grew up in NYC so believe me, I know from crazy people. I’ve actually been in the Bellevue hospital psych ward. Luckily for me, as a visitor!
Ross Perot with a better haircut.
