Just so ya know, credit for finding the Alex Jones payment from Ron Paul, if youre here from Hot Air or Captains Quarters, goes to one of my anti-Paul/anti-troofer friends at digg, COINTELPROAgent (a facetious name to bait the troofers, if thats not obvious). Youd be surprised how much information you can find out (i.e. FEC violations, among other things) just by reading the nonsense the Paultards spew over there.
Im on a mission to clean up the internets, if you havent noticed. Im reeeeally sick of the RP spammers.
If Ron Paul is going to get a spot at the debates and be treated as a serious candidate by the mainstream media, people need to know who his fellow travelers are. Think about it: in a theoretical (and it is theoretical, because RP will never be nominated, much less elected) Ron Paul presidency, would Alex Jones have a seat at the adults table? Secretary of Defense, even? Certainly no neocon (anyone who doesnt agree with Ron Paul) would be there; only a purist would. How about Pat Buchanan as Secretary of State? Or what about Alex Jones or Pat Buchanan as VP? (Obviously, Pat Buchanan is about as good as it could get and is not comparable to Alex Jones, but hes still a divisive, distasteful character, to put it mildly.)
Ron Paul might not agree with Alex Jones about all the batshit crazy conspiracy theories, but theres a whole lot more on which they do agree. Would Ron Paul waste American tax dollars and time with ridiculous investigations into who did 9/11″ because he owes troofers for their support?
Hes a crank, a troll, a cult leader. As far as Im concerned, he has no business in the Republican debates or the Republican polls. He does not support the Republican Party platform, or even the Republican candidate should he not win the nomination (which he wont). He is not going to win, and his presence is merely trolling, disruption, distraction, and offensive to anyone who values the political process. Hes merely using the GOP to lend legitimacy to his ridiculous charadehe ought to run third party, but he wont because he NEEDS the Republican Party to bring attention and money to him. People like me are the Republican basenot the John Birch Society-type kooks on the far, far rightand I say he has no place in the GOP. This tent may be a big tent, but as far as Im concerned, its not big enough for conspiracy theorists, white supremacists, Holocaust deniers, or candidates who depend on their support. They can call themselves the real conservatives all they want, but it wont make it true.
Has Ron Paul always had these views? I never heard of him until he decided to run for President. He has been a Republican in Congress for a while though?
Ron Paul did good work in the eariler years, and in Congress, he provided a libertarian voice that was needed. Unfortunately, he seems to have gone off the deep end.
Love the title!
