Could Ron Paul Take Down Sarah Palin?
NY Mag ^ | 12/13/10 | Dan Amira

Posted on 12/13/2010 11:36:14 AM PST by pissant

Long before the tea party movement grabbed half a dozen Senate seats, before its early proponents ever even dreamed of wearing Colonial-era garb in public, there was longtime Texas Republican Ron Paul, the one guy in Congress trying to abolish the Federal Reserve and shrink the government into near nonexistence. Paul won a devoted-bordering-on-cultish following during his 2008 presidential run, one which, obviously, didn't work out. But now Paul is telling the Times that "it’s at least 50-50" that he'll try again in 2012, and this time, with the movement built largely on his libertarian philosophy now a real force in American politics and expected to be decisive in the Republican primaries.

Doubtful.

I don't see Palin EVER standing on a podium next to Douglas Kuncinich like Dr. Paul did.

“Could Ron Paul Take Down Sarah Palin?”

No, he can’t. I’ve bno doubt we’ll see more such nonsense from the media as 2011 progresses.

NOt a chance. Its FAR to late for that.

Srah now has a serious run at the candidacy. No one can top her in the line,simply beause they have been tpo cowardly to start early enough, by engaging the issues and America as she has.Palin has completed her rights of passage. Paul has not, and he has no way to do so in the time left.

Agreed. The Federal Reserve is in dire need of oversight, and he is apparently the first American since Andrew Jackson who is willing to take on the job.

I also have the highest respect for his very strong pro-life views.

So far as being an isolationist vs non-interventionist, I think it was entirely fair and proper for Dr. Paul to oppose the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan in the Congress as his conscience dictates when that action was put to a vote.

But once the majority supported the President’s decision to act, by continuing his opposition he became an isolationist.

We know the reason to do this is to divide the conservative votes ... thus allowing the progressives (that unite, no matter what or who they are behind their party candidate) and then once again they will win. For the Republicans to divide their votes is insane. Only one candidate per party is to be in the running after the primaries.

LOOK at what happened to HILLARY. It was almost impossible, yet she was leading, then they threw out Florida's votes and Ohio's(?) was it? Their votes too saying their primaries were too early, and Voila! Obama was suddenly the front runner and then the Candidate.

No bookie would have backed that bet. It happened. We all know the Clinton's have strong backing. Presto Chango it was all Obama.

If we did not experience it we would never believe it, would we?

If Ron Paul runs on the promise to deliver an immediate and total abolition of the Federal Reserve system and a return to a legal, transparent and sound monetary policy, then he might get my vote over Sarah Palin.


"Banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations will grow up around them, banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs." - Thomas Jefferson in the debate over The Re-charter of the Bank Bill (1809).

"Let me issue and control a nation's money and I care not who writes the laws." - Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1744-1812), founder of the House of Rothschild.

Ron Paul couldn’t find his way out a wet paper bag. He’s the “Lyndon LaRouche” of his time ...

I doubt if he would, or for that matter, could.

He has as much of a chance being the GOP candidate as I do.
