I nearly fell over with laughter when he said we need to stop building airplanes that were used in World War Two.

Last debate the border fence was going to be used to keep us in, now we are building B17s. This guy has lost his sanity.

I am biased because I am a Santorum supporter, but I love the way Rick really exposes this McGovernite in every debate. It is great to watch and it educates a lot of people on the good Doctors nit wittery.

I should mention that Santorum’s swat at Paul that elicited the insane comment starts about 2:50 in the video, and Paul’s reply starts about 3:50.

He got more cheers than jeers.

Do you really want to antagonize all of the libertarians? It is going to be a close election. We need everyone we can get to vote for the Republican candidate. We even need some libertarians.

Claiming that a person that has successfully run for and been elected to congress numerous times is a complete loon is itself a completely looney statement.

Ron Paul is a libertarian. As a libertarian he is against neocon Wilsonian idealistic expansionism. What is so wrong about that?

If the only job of a president were domestic policy, Ron Paul would be a good or near great choice. However on foreign policy he somehow doesn’t grasp that devout muslims, i.e., terrorists, want us dead simply because we are not muslims. It has mobbing yo do with what we do or say, it’s who we are

Frankly, I’m getting a little tired of the “he’s great on economic/domestic policy” line.

Paul is insane. He takes the word of the mass murderer bin Laden at face value. He has no credibility. None. His judgment is that of a whacked-out drug addict. He can’t be trusted with anything. Those who still think he would be an even passable president on any level are smokin’ some powerful ganja, or just don’t have a clue.

I’m not sure he did. I think he just assumed that the poor audience didn’t understand that he was merely relaying bin Laden’s claim about why he decided to slaughter innocents by the thousands, as if relying on a mass murderer’s word is somehow better than making the claim directly.

I am not a Ron Paulie, I am in the bag for Perry at this point.

However, Ron Paul has a point... if we quit dabbling in world politics, stated succinctly to the world that we support Israel & England (which I know Paul wants us to abandon them as well...), and the rest be condemned to the fruits of their own labor (or lack thereof), we’d spend a lot less money on the war machine. And a lot less blood of our young would be fed to that machine. We could annihilate our enemies on the battlefield of the market. Yes, we would need to maintain a powerful military force, but nothing as large as we have now, to protect our homeland. We have the most minerals on the planet when you look at the global surveys, at least in general, and in energy specifically. We don’t need to protect our interests in the Middle East, only our allies.

Imagine that back in 2001, had Bush sent in a small Seal team, quietly eliminated Bin Laden and brought his head back for DNA testing? Imagine in Iraq, had we used intensive intelligence to take out Saddam, and the next three levels of his regime down in one fell swoop? Sure, Iran would have probably stepped into Iraq’s government, but we could have shown the same intense effort at the wanna-be-the-next-Persian-empire-boys, and still never spent near the money we have at this, or the lives our men and women in the military.

Basically, I am all for isolationism in terms of foreign policy. It only gets us screwed in the end, whether we do or don’t act on a global scale. May as well spend less if all we get the same result, either road we take.

I think that is what the Founding Fathers knew as well, too bad we have departed so far from their ideals.

America has forgotten that we don’t need the world, but they do need us and the things we have to offer.

I have even been wondering lately, that if we didn’t have such a robust welfare system, would we even care about illegal immigrants at all? It’s because of our stedfast dedication to socialism, post FDR, that the illegals are able to drain our system. Otherwise, they’d be just like everyone else, since if we weren’t getting freebies, neither would they.

Most of our problems result from the denial of market power & our social nets.

I think once our system eventually falls apart (and it will at the rate we are going), the new constitution can be almost identical to previous one, with the exception that welfare safety nets should be outlawed, and the only money government can claim on individuals or businesses is export or import tariffs.

Probably oversimplified, but we are just going nuts as nation, and on both sides of the aisles.

I just laugh when I see L. Ron in the debates. He spews all this wacky stuff and when he starts getting all wound up, he sounds like he's yelling at kids to get off his lawn.

The only thing that wasn't amusing was discovering that he'd put that "blame America" garbage on his website for the tenth anniversary of 9/11.

I'm glad Rick Santorum called L. Ron out on that one.

Paul has some economics views that I find interesting and appealing. But his views on foreign policy are absolutely insane. So I agree with you and those who slam Paul. He is in fact nuttier than a fruitcake. But you know who scares me more? Ron Paul's supporters.

I have tried to be libertarian, but just can’t. I have even gone to the website to see if they just aren’t telling it right. I last about 10 minutes and then it’s legalize dope or stop all wars and I have to leave. On a scale of 1 to 10, they usually come in about 6 and Dems about 2. I’ll stay Republican at about an 8. If we just had a Conservative party, maybe I could find a home. I like the Constitution Party, but they get about 7 votes each cycle.

WWFB:

What is wrong is that paleoPaulie is a crackpot whose policy is hate and blame America First. He won't be getting elected to Congress any more since Texas Republican state legislators have done their patriotic duty and eliminated his district. He then announced that, ummmm, he would not run again for Congress so that he could concentrate on his run for POTUS. Yeah, that's the ticket!!! We don't need the craven cowardice of the foreign policies of George McGovern and Neville Chamberlain and Sean Penn and Code Pink and Ramsay Clark grafted and transplanted onto the GOP. Nor shall we have it.

And again the phony misuse of the "neocon" label (shared by New Republic, the Nation and Paulistinians who all needed a common term to try to tear down the popularity of actual conservatism) . Neocons are a group of aged or dead formerly leftist (mostly) New York City intellectuals who fled the Demonratic Party when it was seized by anti-American communists under George McGovern, had its party rules changed to prevent patriots from being able to be nominated by the Demonrat Party conventions, and (mostly) transferred their allegiance to the GOP. Irving Kristol, Gertrude Himmelfarb, Donald Kagan, Norman Podhoretz, Midge Decter, Daniel Bell, Alexander Bickel, Sidney Hook, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Jeanne Kirkpatrick and other giants of their generation. Most are gone now but they have left a stronger movement and a great legacy behind and they understood foreign and social policy far better than airhead hereditary Republican trust fund babies like James Baker, Upchuck Percy (actually a hand-chosen but windtunnel poor kid funded by the Rockefellers), anything named Romney, Muffy at the yacht club, Skipper at the polo club, the Junior League generally, and the delusional Troofers, Libertoonians and Holocaust deniers of the El Run Paulie "movement."

Ron Paul and his merry band of leftist college antiwar, antiAmerican, pro-abortion, pro-homosexual, dope-smoking or snorting college trash and refugees from Woodstock are NOT going to alter the terms of the political discussion much less elect their hero to ruin the USA as POTUS. There are libertarians who have not lost their minds but Ron Paul is not a very good example. Don't paint all libertarians with the delusional paleoPaulie brush. He is a peace creep. He is a crackpot. He is the Harold Stassen of faux libertarians, an irritating dishonest dimwit and nothing more. No more deserving of conservative respect than was Cynthia McKinney.

For every alienated libertarian we lose, we will gain ten socially conservative and militarily aggressive working class Democrats who will be the next generation of Reagan Democrats. So long, Paulie! Take Chuck Hagel, Weepy Walter Jones and Jimmy Duncan with you when you go.

BTW, in nearly fifty years of conservative activism, I have yet to meet a single conservative who admired rather than despised Woodrow Wilson. We are no more enthusiastic for his League of Nations than we are for the United Nations, not fans of his Ku Klux Klan views as an historian, or his generally useless progressivism.

We take nothing for granted but I would not assume a close election. It looks right now as though Obozo will be Carter II in more ways than just policy failure. How did libertarians vote in 1972, 1980 and 1984? Did anyone bother to notice? Libertarians can get SOME of what they want on taxes and business regulation from the GOP but they need not hallucinate that they will be the tail that wags the dog (particularly on military, on interventionism, on the mass slaughter of innocent babies and on homosexual anything. Expansionism???? What expansionism? Try tobacco. Even tobacco is better for you.

If that could have been done, it would have been done. It's impossible to operate in the Middle East Theater without forward bases in Europe. Do you own a map or a globe? If so I suggest you look at it. How could we accomplish that which you advocate without a military that can project power? And a military that can project power need both sea and airlift capability. The US is the only country that has this type of capability. And it doesn't come cheap. There are quite a few people out there who think we can just snap our fingers and do things like knock off OBL or Saddam as if it would be easy and cheap.

Here we go yet again - Ron Paul's supporters can never directly defend his comments and his behavior so they try to make the discussion be about something else other than what was being discussed. This is still the guy who openly campaigned for Adam Kokesh.

He got more cheers than jeers.

He got only jeers with the comments that are being discussed.

I saw that, and was very pleased to see Santorum take the pathetic Paul to task over that... to hear Paul stammer over “what al-Qaeda said” and how we should react to their wishes — to a loud chorus of boos — was rich. It was a stark reminder that the nutcase Wrong Paul is completely unfit to serve in the White House.

Ther were people in the audience booing and cheering on the exact same points that Paul was making. To give the impression that it wast total disagreement with his views is pure distortion.

Santorum went off on the patriotic and simple mantra that they attacked us because they do not like us because of what we stand for. Paul got into a much more intellectual discussion, saying that Santorum’s interpretation is not how those that attack us feel about it. Paul then provided examples of their thinking. That is when he got booed.

It sounds to me like some in the audience thought Paul was expressing that opinion himself.

This is why a serious thinker can’t run for office. Go for the soundbites Paul, that is all they are capable of listening to.

What about Paul’s question. Do we need 900 military bases around the world. What if we redirected some of those resources and towards defence and spent less on military?

I’m sorry about your fatigue problem but the first item you cite is arguably a foreign policy issue. You may not care for his stand on personal freedom but it is several orders of magnitude less crazy than the thinking of the last nine decades regarding taxation, deficit spending and state support for those with a politically correct grievance or membership in a politically correct demographic.

Take a step back and look at what has passed for sanity in domestic policy in this country since Wilson. If Paul is crazy on domestic policy he’s the least crazy man in the room. Foreign policy? He’s flat wrong and disastrously so.

Basic fiscal realities will dictate shrinking our global military presence.

So did Andre Carson, when he said that his fellow congressmen want to hang black people. So what? Do you really want to antagonize all of the libertarians? It is going to be a close election. We need everyone we can get to vote for the Republican candidate. We even need some libertarians.

If not antagonizing libertarians means agreeing to that kind of lunacy, then no thanks. You libertarians can stay home. Anyone, ANYONE, much less a presidential candidate, who suggests that we deserved 911 or accepts Osama Bin Laden's view of the world or our support of Israel caused 911, can go get stuffed.

Claiming that a person that has successfully run for and been elected to congress numerous times is a complete loon is itself a completely looney statement.

Successfully winning elections has nothing to do with whether you're sane. Cynthia McKinney is a loon. Barbara Boxer is a loon. Maxine Waters is a loon. Barbara Lee is a loon. Ron Paul is a libertarian. As a libertarian he is against neocon Wilsonian idealistic expansionism. What is so wrong about that?

Successfully winning elections has nothing to do with whether you're sane. Cynthia McKinney is a loon. Barbara Boxer is a loon. Maxine Waters is a loon. Barbara Lee is a loon. Howard Dean is a loon. And so on, and so on.

Ron Paul is a libertarian. As a libertarian he is against neocon Wilsonian idealistic expansionism. What is so wrong about that?

What is so wrong about that? Did you listen to his comments? The man's a complete nutcase. That's what's wrong with that.

He got more cheers than jeers.

Yes, he did. And everything he said was 100% right.

It's the delusional loons like Santorum that are bat sh*t crazy. It's not un-American to recognize that we weren't attacked for no reason.

But the bottom line is that as James Carvill said almost 20 years ago, "It's the economy stupid." Nothing else really matters.

Ron Paul was the only person on that stage last night who understands the enormity of the economic crisis that we face and who knows how to fix it.

The idea that Romney is the only man who can fix the economy (as Pawlenty maintains) is beyond absurd. Romney, Perry, et all don't have a clue. Electing any one of those bozos to the Presidency would just be more Dubya, and we can't afford more Dubya.

Imagine that back in 2001, had Bush sent in a small Seal team, quietly eliminated Bin Laden and brought his head back for DNA testing?

I can imagine it, but I'd rather not, because it would have been stupid. Did we specifically target the pilots of the planes that attacked us at Pearl Harbor? THEY started the war with US, not the other way round. When someone starts a war with you, you don't specifically target the exact individuals directly involved in that particular attack, you f'ing destroy them.

Sure he does. If he thinks he can do something why, in all the time he has been in Washington has he done absolutely nothing? That is except put in as many earmarks as possible.

I’ll be glad when that piece of human garbage goes away forever, him and his idiot followers.
