1. Pauls intellectual mentor Murray Rothbard was the founder of anarcho-capitalism and opposed the legitimacy of all nation-states, including ours.
2. Paul openly proclaims himself a revival of the Old Right, the movement which opposed our entry in World War II. He and his followers proudly reject the New Right tradition established by William F. Buckley Jr., Ronald Reagan, and Barry Goldwater.
When I was deciding whether or not to run for President as a Republican, I re-read Justin Raimondos Reclaiming the American Right and it gave me hopethat the anti-interventionist, pro-liberty Old Right, which had once dominated the party, could and would rise again. Here is living history: the story of an intellectual and political tradition that my campaign invokved and reawakened. This prescient book, written in 1993, could not be more relevant today.
RON PAUL, Ten Term U.S. Congressman (TX) and 2008 Presidential Candidate
3. Paul is an antisemite.
This is not a complicated point (as some polite conservatives might think it is.) And it has nothing to do with Paul wanting to end foreign aid to Israel and all other nations. (I know plenty of passionate Zionists who think the same thing for different reasons.)
If you believe that the ideas of the Old Right have great value and that we should have followed a non-interventionist path during the rise of Nazism then you are an antisemite. You know good and well that the practical consequence of American inaction would have meant an even higher body count in the Holocaust. But dead Jews are apparently not something that concerns you much.
Just as today Paul doesnt care if Mahmoud Ahmadinejad arms the Islamic Republic of Iran for a nuclear-charged assault against Israel.
Yet when conservatives talk about Paul they just politely note that they disagree with Pauls policy of standing by while the next Holocaust begins.
When will the Conservative Movement finally finish the job Buckley started and stop tolerating the racist, anarchist, useful idiots for Jihad in their midst? Ever?
Update: Ex-Conservative Andrew Sullivan endorsed Ron Paul for the GOP nomination today. Perhaps Ill have a response later
For every Jew who left Russia for Palestine, 100 emigrated to America, to our gain. After Hitler, the trickle of Zionists turned into a torrent.
W. Audrey was a railroad buff and Anglican priest, who liked to vacation of the Isle of Man, which he knew was part of the Anglican diocese of Man and Sodor. Sodor was previously the Norwegian diocese of “Sodor”, meaning southern islands, e.g., the Shetlands, which passed from Norwegian to English eccliastical control around 1100.
Audrey wrote the railway series of books, but Thomas doesn’t show up until the fifth or sixth book. And yes, I have grandkids. Is your three year old a girl, because I think Thomas and Friends is a guy thing.
OOOPS! Wrong thread by a lot.
Mass: I think you may have replied to the wrong poster, but since you brought it up, I love Thomas the Tank Engine story. No, I haven’t read any of them, but I’ve watched it on the telly, and my grandchildren have a video. Can’t take my eyes off it.
I guess the admin moderator can delete these posts.
As non sequiturs go, that was a masterpiece. Merry Christmas.
