Skip to comments.Rush: Ron Paul is Right
Posted on 10/17/2011 6:39:36 PM PDT by rabscuttle385
Talk radio icon Rush Limbaugh stunned his audience on Monday when he said that US presidential candidate Ron Paul has the right perspective in wanting to cut US$1 trillion in government spending although the conservative talker claims he came up with the idea first.
Youre not going to believe my answer, Rush told a caller who asked how the Republicans can govern once they defeat President Obama next year. Ron Paul has a good idea.

Look, pal. We’re not going to argue this point with you. FR is a pro-life, pro-family, pro-gun, pro-liberty, pro-constitution, pro-small government grassroots conservative site. Mitt Romney has violated every principle of liberty we hold dear to our hearts. Thus he is automatically disqualified for any consideration whatsoever for support from this organization for every office other than janitor at the federal dump. If you wish to campaign for Romney, you’re going to have to do it somewhere else. It’s UNWELCOME here!! May I suggest WankersForRomney.com?
...I don't think this is going to be good... HAAAA
...Rush Limbaugh,,, the man that only takes calls from listeners that make him look good. If he had to argue with someone other than the usual idiots his call screener lets on, he'd have archives full of studders and stammers. To his credit, he has a staff that keeps him prompted with good research and witty answers to prevent him from making a total ass of himself. The DIB network; Disasters in Broadcasting...
...The only thing bigger than Limbaugh's ego is his mouth...
Ru Paul has been in office since when....’76? What has he ever accomplished all those years?
...A good POTUS has good ideas. A great POTUS has advisers and thinkers to help make policy. We all want our man or woman in office, but there are many good candidates and PsOV to be implemented into a Conservative Party platform. Paul, Palin, Bachmann, Cain and others have contributed to this plank building. BHO has to be defeated before any more damage to the Republic is done!!!
I doubt that we can survive with 4 years more of Obama or 4 years of Romney. They are both liberals and liberals is what has driven this country to the brink. Liberals and RINO’s that is. Yes when the chips are down I will vote for whomever is paired against Obama. If it’s Romney it would make me sick to my stomach, but I would have no choice. Our job is to not let it be Romney.
The answer to your question is no. I have had all I want, ever, of a communist in the white house. Mitt is still a liberal and we must not let him be our nominee.

You can put Perry on the ash heap of RINODOM along with him!
Ron Paul is right?
Brings to mind the old saying about blind pigs and acorns...
The title is misleading. Why so many posters here fell for it is beyond me.
I listened to the show. Rush didn't say Paul is right in everything and anything. He embraced Paul's ideas for limiting government spending, although pointing out he (Rush) has been saying the same thing for years.
All these stupid headlines do is give Rush boo-birds the opportunity for their two-bit minutes of flame.
The Federal Government is guilty of either failure, reneging, or wholly unconstitutional overreach on each of those powers.
The Treasury prints enough to ensure we become Zimbabwe; the Post Office is bankrupt; they REFUSE OUTRIGHT to enforce the border or immigration laws; the SCOTUS rules through judicial tyranny; the Debt is unmanageable; they've unconstitutionally re-interpreted the word "regulate" to mean "stymie", and the word "commerce" to mean "NOT-commerce"; taxes are prohibitive and redistributional a la Karl Marx's Second Plank; and they wish to use the "necessary and proper" clause to institute an all-powerful totalitarian State.
So, of all the "enumerated" powers in the Constitution; the Federal Government still handles National Defense (numbers 10 through 16) better than the States would on their own.
Other than that, they've screwed up every responsibility they've been given in one way or another; so, what's the point of keeping them around even for those "enumerated" purposes? The Federal Govt is clearly too irresponsible to handle even these limited powers.
A NATO-like defense treaty among the States, and NOTHING ELSE, would suit me fine.
It's exactly the time actually, cause another RINO President doesn't do us any good in the long term. The guy who invented Obamacare and would support another bailout (Romney) is unacceptable, period. The man is a flip flopping liar who only cares about 1 issue, getting elected President.
? Why would that stun the audience? The only way I can think it would is because most people would like to cut more than 1 trillion.
Ignoring your omition of Dr. Paul's hiatus, I would remind you that for any bill to pass, it requires a majority in Congress, and a willing executive.
If one were genuinely interested, one could look it up, but among other bills introduced by Dr. Paul is his bill to get the United States OUT of the U.N. This bill has been on the books for about 20 freakin' YEARS without much support from the Dems and RINOS, let alone from our past Presidents.
Now I ask you; even considering that your question was rhetorical, what kind of future do you want for your family? One in which the U.N. continues to grow in power, or on in which the U.S. no longer participates?
Why would Rush's audience be stunned by this? Conservatives and libertarians almost always agree about issues like gov't spending.
