Ron Paulís Shocking Message To The Tea Party
Digital Meeting Center ^ | 28-Aug-2010 | Ron Paul

Posted on 08/30/2010 11:18:14 AM PDT by altair

Ron Paul has some surprising news for the Tea Party:

You’re being taken for a ride.

At least this is what many libertarians like Ron Paul believe when they see someone like Glenn Beck or Sarah Palin trying to lead the Tea Party at the “restoring honor” rally this weekend. In fact, Ron Paul believes, if you’re looking for real freedom, you should really go back to the core of the constitution and the bill of rights, which Beck and Palin do not fully endorse when you really look at their beliefs. Whether it be Palin’s support for starting more wars or Beck’s beliefs on paying the private Federal Reserve MORE interest on our money by means of a VAT tax.

Ron Paul believes in neither of the above.

Here was Ron Paul’s message to the Tea Party via The New York Times just the other day:

“As many frustrated Americans who have joined the Tea Party realize, we cannot stand against big government at home while supporting it abroad. We cannot talk about fiscal responsibility while spending trillions on occupying and bullying the rest of the world. We cannot talk about the budget deficit and spiraling domestic spending without looking at the costs of maintaining an American empire of more than 700 military bases in more than 120 foreign countries. We cannot pat ourselves on the back for cutting a few thousand dollars from a nature preserve or an inner-city swimming pool at home while turning a blind eye to a Pentagon budget that nearly equals those of the rest of the world combined.”

While the Tea Party will be out supporting Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin this weekend, you wonder how many of them will be in full support of more wars and paying more interest to a group of untouchable and unauditable private bankers otherwise known as the FED? This is precisely what Ron Paul is asking the American public to consider when looking at the Tea Party leaders and see if they really stand for what they believe in.

Ron Paul believes the Tea Party is not about “left” or “right” like a lot of political pundits make it out to be. It’s about the constitution, and limited government.

How can anybody trust libertarians when their favorite
“son” loads up legislation that he knows will pass and
gives the pork while giggling “I voted against it.”?

I don’t recall Beck supporting the VAT. His understanding of the money issue is weak, and that troubles me.

Did Ron not listen to anyone at the rally?

I suspect he's a tad bit jealous.

As this is a conservative site, and Ron Paul is only conservative on the matter of taxation, many here don't care much about what he thinks.

If he is right on any issue, it is by accident.

I don't really care what Ron Paul believes. I think for myself, unlike most of Paul's acolytes.

Why on earth does Ron Paul insist on running as a Republican when he is, in fact and deed, a Libertarian?

Be honest, Dr. Paul, about who and what you are.

Let’s see if you can be re-elected by being honest.

I have never liked the idea of dismissing ideas that are critical. Even a nut job (and I am not saying Paul is one) can be correct.

It is dangerous to dismiss opposing views with statements like, "Take your meds." Much better to focus on what they are saying and determine if what they are saying is correct or not. Paul may be wrong but no one can say that he is without significant information sources.

When the comments are completely divorced from fact, as Dr Paul's are, “take your meds” is a complete appropriate response to his emotion based, hyper ignorant bile laced drivel.

Toot toot, the pork train’s acomin’ into town, and Ron Paul’s conducting it.

Liberaltarians need someone more credible than Ron Paul if they’re going to convince us that they really care about the Constitution.

Ron would drive the country over a cliff exactly like Barry has, just a different cliff. As for the Tea Party taking people for a ride, that's a clear case of Ron seeing his own faults in others.

Well, there was a time when the Libertarians were making important contributions to the discussion of how to restore, and even advance the cause of liberty. Hayak and Mises and the rest of the Austrian School come immediately to mind.

Unfortunately, in my view, the current crop of American Libertarians, Dr. Paul perhaps chief among them have abandoned any pretense of seriousness, or even of critical thinking in many cases. From foreign policy to drugs to immigration, the Libertarian argument is barely coherent, let alone persuasive. It's too bad, because their contributions to economic policy are critical.

I went away after the early part of the Bush II administration and look what that brought us - Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and President of the United States Barack Obama.

I'm not backing down this time. The US is as sick and tired of neocon big spending as it is from obamunism.
