Skip to comments.Ron Paul Is a Libertarian Double Agent for the Democratic Party
Posted on 12/30/2011 11:51:01 AM PST by Responsibility2nd
Highly-conservative former U.S. Navy chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt has done the leg work. He's connected the dots. He's put two and two together. He's milked the monkey for its simian wisdom. And he's finally willing to make public his shocking discovery:
The Ron Paul campaign is little more than an insidious conspiracy between the libertarians and Democrats who, as everybody knows, love each other to take over the Republican Party
"In Iowa, the only reason Ron Paul is polling so high is because hes getting crossover votes from the left-wing. And there are people who are trying to sabotage the Republican primary, they want to elect a Democrat, at least in his social conservative policies, Ron Paul is a Democrat, or is a libertarian. Hes anti-church, anti-Christian, anti-Israel, pro-homosexual, pro-marijuana, everything that we dont believe in, the Democrats do believe in; everything that Ron Paul believes in, the Democrats do believe in.
"I think thats why they're lining up and theyre trying to make it appear as if in the Republican caucuses in Iowa and in the different places around the country, that Ron Paul actually has some Republican support. I think he doesnt. Ron Paul does not have any Republican support. Everyone who is a Ron Paul supporter is not a Republican, they are either a Democrat or a libertarian trying to take over the Republican Party."
My God! Now it all makes sense!
So, that's why Ron Paul keeps winning all those Conservative Political Action Conference straw polls. Damn liberal!
No, it’s not satire, it’s pure unadulterated bull shiite.
Who’d a thunk it!
You should clearly post that this is Comedy Central and not a serious Editorial.
I had to put some thought into that. And he's right. Why else would RoPaul be doing well in Iowa?
He's probably right about the cross-over.
But, using this rationale to label Ron Paul a double-agent for the Democrats is the equivalent of calling Hillary Clinton a double-agent for the Republicans.
As you may remember, Rush Limbaugh promoted crossover voting for her in Operation Chaos in 2008.
Is it? So you think conservatives in Iowa are actually endorsing a nutcase that’s more liberal than Obama?
Sure, the libs at Comedy Central are busting a gut over this. Why not? To have a liberal leading the GOP field? That is hilarious.
But this.... This is what Klingenschmitt wrote yesterday:
Klingenschmitt: ‘Ron Paul Does Not Have Any Republican Support’
Ron Paul is to the left of President Obama on social issues: he wants to legalize marijuana, he wants to support homosexualizing the military and repeal DOMA, the Defense of Marriage Act, he is all about homosexual marriage. This is a man who claims to be a Republican but hes a RINO, hes a Republican In Name Only, because Ron Paul is openly a libertarian. Hes not part of the Republican Party, hes wrong on all the issues that we care about as the church. So, because hes so far left of even President Obama, hes gathering support from Democrats.

Now. Who can argue with that?
Of course there will be cross-over voting in the 2012 Republican Primaries in 2012 where Democrats will be voting in the Republican Primaries and most likely for Ron Paul.
There is nothing wrong with it as conservatives would be doing the exact same thing if there was no action in the Republican Primary and the Democratic Primary was heavily contested.
It’s just politics.
...only in the same way that McCain is.
Call me a “Paultard” if you like. I vote Republican. Lemmings run thin in my blood. I don’t beat hornet’s nests with sticks, but I’m deadly when a hornet attacks. It’s nice to see “liberals” interested in a candidate who advocates “kooky” concepts like smaller government, fiscal responsibility, and government ACCOUNTABILITY. If you think I’m not serious about national defense and national interests, then you’re the kook. Oh, and should your preferred Republican candidate get the nomination, you can rest assured I will not stay at home whimpering in my beer. I will vote for him/her.
Call me a Paultard if you like...
I would never call you a Paultard. That is too great an insult. As you know Paultard are getting the zot (even as I freep)
I'm no fan of Ron Paul but that's just a stupid comment to anyone who can understand basic economics
About “reverse operation chaos”...
To participate in the caucus... one has to be a registered voter, and be able to prove residence in the precinct for which your caucus meeting is being held... and those things are going to be checked. While someone could re-register at the caucus, people will do that... and precinct leaders and participants who are skilled in Robert’s Rules can minimize the impacts of their presence by questioning credentials, and county party staffs can be empowered to aggressively deal with disruptors by ruling them out of order in caucus meetings and having law enforcement remove disruptors from meetings if disruptions continue.
There are sincere Paul backers, but if agitators want to make trouble joining a controversial candidate for straw polls and caucuses would be an efficient way.
A lot of his supporters are young New Ager Utopians who don't know anything about anything. They whine about “austerity” and support OWS, while they support a guy who talks about reducing the role and size of government radically.
They are into conspiracy theories (involving Bush and Cheney, corporations, bankers, Illuminati, etc.) and Paul is the only politician who does not discourage these fears and promises to make it all go away.
They trust Democrats more than Republicans (always the villain's in every conspiracy) but that has to do with total ignorance of facts and history dished out by left wing news and re-education sources. They look at Democrats as making “mistakes” and Republicans as the evil geniuses. (haha) Many are super fearful and angry. They walk around in life waiting to get mugged.
