Many of Ron Paul’s supporters are anti-war, blame America first, stupid wet behind the ears twenty-somethings. They have a lot of growing up to do yet.
Bookmarked for later laughs.....
Any recordings of Paul mouthing his truther beliefs?
“I appeal to my conservative brethren to raise the level of debate and avoid the urge to use the same unfair tactics that our adversaries employ.”
Paul is NOT a Conservative he is a Libertarian. And as we have seen here, the Paulettes and Rombots are working hand in had to destroy Perry.
Check out the Libertarians for Romney:
Libertarians for Mitt is encouraging businessman, venture capitalist, and former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney to seek the Republican nomination for President. Mitt Romney is not a perfect libertarian, nor does he claim to be. He is an economic conservative and social moderate. But he is the most libertarian-leaning candidate who can defeat statist Obama in 2012.
“A Tea Party Conservative’s Defense of Ron Paul...and His Supporters”
Paul backs up his positions with explanations. His supporters either agreed with those positions beforehand, or adopted them in response to Paul’s arguments. Young adults can reason, but they’ll reject the mockery directed towards their candidate. Paul’s base should be viewed as students still willing to learn. The other candidates should take advantage of that.
I said it before, I’ll say it again: it’s not to the advantage of the candidates to mock Ron Paul. Paul’s bogus positions deserve a logical response the uninformed can understand. No sense alienating his supporters through ridicule. And the mockery is no substitute for expressing one’s understanding of the issues.
Actually I like us playing the role of world policeman.
If not us then who? China? Russia? Brics? No thanks!
However............we can’t play world policeman on borrowed money from China. For example we are fighting 3 wars in the middle-east to stabilize the region. Who is the main beneficiary? China! Why? Because China gets majority of their oil from middle-east. So we are going into debt FOR ETERNITY to China to protect oil supplies to China. Total stupidity!
Therefore, until our economy is fixed, our national debt is fixed, unfortunately I would have to go along with Ron Paul, at least on a temporary basis.
Though Freepers do so love their circular firing squads!
We hear precious little from any of the other candidates about reigning in an out of control Fed, Taking back control of our money from the world banksters, drastically cutting the size and scope of the Federal Government by eliminating entire agencies, or about simply taking the Constitution seriously when it comes to States rights and the power that is reserved to the people.
Only the kooks actually go there. None of the other candidates give any of that more than token lip service, and little, if any, actual observable action.
Why is that?
Even Sarah Palin, who will get my vote if she runs, doesnt seem to be able to take the leadership of support for the Constitution from Ron Paul.
How did seriously following the Constitution become the new third rail in this country?
How did we let Ron Paul become the primary owner of that political position?
Welcome to FR, oh, wait. :)
No Ron Paul is the biggest NUTTER out there. He gets a few things right but the rest of his beliefs suck.
I find it funny reading your passionate defense of Neo Isolationist Ron Paul in light of your tag line.
Paul would say to you "screw the Christan in Kosovo, they aren't our problem. It their own fault for living in the Muslim's land."
This thread proves the article, doesn’t it.
There is no way a libertarian can win the presidential election!
Some of Ron Paul’s policy statements are refreshingly honest. But, Ron Paul is mentally unstable, and as such his view of the world is completely devoid of reality and dangerous to our survival.
He needs to go away.
I stopped reading right there, and I've never done that with an article from American Thinker. This notion that Ron Paul is a strict constuctionist is BS. His understanding of the Constitution and the intent of the founders is no more or less profound than anyone else in the race, or in Congress for that matter.
