I am. Anybody who supports Ron Paul after seeing this isnt just not a Republican; theyre not a patriotic American. George McGovern would find this guys foreign policy borderline treason.

This Ron Paul ad is a must-see. It's 100% vintage KGB messaging, and it's reprehensible. This is the most atrocious bunch of anti-American propaganda I have seen and it was written and produced by the Ron Paul campaign. It's just disgusting. Closest comparison I can make is to Jane Fonda. Ron Paul is the al Qaeda candidate. It isn't just an attack on our foreign policy, it's a direct attack on our military. It's time to stop ignoring Ron Paul or making fun of his supporters. It's time to start calling him and them out for what they are. I am calling you all out for what you are: Modern Day Jane Fondas. I don't know how "Inspire", the Al Qaeda magazine could have produced a more helpful piece for their cause. No wonder Ron Paul has been all over the Iranian news agencies--Press TV and ISNA--since he ran in 2008.
So this is the link?
Ron Paul is a veteran. He’s not attacking the military. What he is attacking is unconstitutional action on the part of President Obama.
Maybe it's time more people start reading and studying the US Constitution as Ron Paul has. His views are right in line with the founding fathers, neither to the left or to the right, but spot on.
< snicker >
No, to TRULY be offended, I have to encounter a worthy intellect in opposition to me. To answer your question directly LSUfan
Ron Paul, and the bong brigade surely are not. They are humorous only.
Yes...butitis creapy how much Ron looks like the guy who was the leaderof that group who were waiting for the spaceship and pull?their own plug in California (?)
I am not agreeing or disagreeing with the message or whatever candidate.
That was a powerful and effective video presentation.
Let’s hope that a respectable conservative uses such in his or her campaign.
His attitude towards our military makes me sick. I don’t need to watch the video.
After this debacle on the SS Tax cut who the hell wants to be called a Republican. I was not a Ron Paul fan but he looks good compared to Obama and Romney. May send him some cash at least he has principle.
I dont care if he is a 4 star general ....this is total BS and its sad that anyone can swallow it
hmm, interesting and accurate reference to Rome..
back in my libertarian days - long ago - loved RP, then started listening to the otd (other then democrats). people call him crazy...... but is it possible he knows more than we do about certain things?
i have a couple of beloved former Marine friends that are in Iraq security now and they are both strong RP supporters. very intelligent, pro-military, but they love RP. when i ask them why, they both say RP is just right on the Constitution. not making this up. and they are both War Veterans and are proud of their service...
just find it interesting ...
thanks for posting
Quote of the day.
Never have liked that SOB! Same holds for all his Bots.
By the way I'm not Republican but Conservative the same as this site.
The part that he left out was the part where the host country put their own people in trash shredders and gassed women and children by the thousands, and raped and murdered women as a suppression method, and don’t forget they attacked an ally and were on a ceasefire agreement while firing at our aircraft. In Afghanistan, uh,.....we were ATTACKED! I don’t really give a crap what the locals think.
Being “offended” is something the Left does. Instead, just exercise your right to vote for someone else.
Sounds like Ron Paul (pot) is sucking up for the over seas campaign money. Iranian money.
Yes, the US military is over-extended. No, we should not be into nation building. Our civilian and military leaders have committed our military to too many places and then tied their hands with unrealistic rules of engagement.
As for Paul ranting this video claiming our presence is like the Chinese or Russians being over here and imposing martial law, that is ridiculous. In Iraq and Afghanistan, for instance, the different tribes and the dictators killed more than we ever did. Iraq needed to have something done, and in spite of all the hand wringing over no WMS there actually were some both in Iraq and Syria. They just were not nuclear. Germ warfare will annihilate a populace as quickly as a nuke.
As for Afghanistan, and Obama's (and others) claims THAT was where we needed to be, I could never see it. This is a mountainous nation of tribes who join together in different configurations for different reasons, and NEVER see things cohesively. Iraq, too is divided into three tribes or peoples, and as we are leaving, they are back at it again. So will Afghanistan be.
But back to Ron Paul--his supporters are kind of like the peaceniks of the 60's--no more money and blood expended. That doesn't mean we can just sit down on our hands and make nice, like Obama asking--asking! the Iraquis to return our drone. He should have been proactive and had it destroyed, but this admin would have probably sold the technology, anyway.
Paul is not anti-American as you accuse him to be, and does not side with Al Qaeda or any other terrorist group. And no I am not a Paul supporter, the only two I might support are either Newt or Rick Perry, which feels like trying to pick up dog poop from the clean end.
Yes he is principled and if his principles are enacted you/ your children will become the servants of the next empire that rises in the wake of American retreat. You think Ron Paul’s happy thought world will keep the conquistadors at bay? So you choose, what nation state do you most hope takes the reigns as the global leader... please choose wisely.
Guess you did not get the memo, now that Ron Paul is leading in Iowa, the LSM says that these caucuses are meaningless.
Paul is right about one thing...........we’re headed to the poor house and at some point will no longer be capable of paying for our military kinetic actions.
What is critical to our national security is our fiscal security. None of the other candidates appear to be willing to make the hard fiscal decisions..............they all want to continue the Bread and Circuses it’s just a matter to what degree.
Sorry, it doesn’t offend me at all.
My fear is that Ron Paul will pull a Ross Perot and run as a third party candidate, thus handing Obama the election on a silver platter. And considering the two unappealing old RINO’s who we currently have as frontrunners, it wouldn’t be hard to do. Sarah, please get back into the race. Your country badly needs you.
Ron Paul is a veteran. Hes not attacking the military. What he is attacking is unconstitutional action on the part of President Obama.
So what? John "The Rat-Basturd, Traitor" Kerry was also a vet, but he single-handedly did more damage to the military (and our country) than any other Anti-Vietnam Leftist and that includes Jane Fonda, all the while pretending he was not anti-military.
As a Nam Vet I don't consider either Paul or Kerry, or anyone who attacks our Republic and Military, "Brothers;" they are back-stabbing, bottom-feeding, scumbags.
BS - this is ready-made propaganda against our military that the enemy is likely spreading around already. If RP is too dense to see this obvious truth, then he’s a dolt and shouldn’t be running for Commander in Chief.
There are plenty of ways to criticize BHO - comparing our troops to communist Chinese or Russians is despicable.
My God, people - the many hateful views of this man need to be shown to the electorate - far too many only think he’s just for the Constitutiom and against the Federal Reserve.
The MSM probably won’t do it and perhaps the only candidate with the guts to do it (if he’s aware of it) is Newt.
Not to defend Paul, but the fine print indicates this was not put out by the Paul campaign...though it is certainly something that could have been.
You are not allowed to say this: Ron Paul has legitimate points. As Pat Buchanan found out before him - no deviation from the (Dem) Party line!
I couldn’t watch it through to the end, but you really should watch at least some of it - you’ll be motivated to spread the word about this piece of trash (and his video as well).
What do you think Rush, Levin or Thomas Sowell would think of this? (That’s a rhetorical question, btw).
Ron Paul has opposed foreign wars forever and continues to. Democrats opposed foreign wars until Obama was president. Domestic energy production is the best way to defeat the terrorists — their weapons are bought with our money.
Interesting that on Red Eye right now, they’re talking about RP’s newsletters.
Ding ding ding!
OK that made me LOL
Imagine that the U.S. sponsored and harbored terrorist cells that killed thousands of Chinese civilians and his analogy might have an ounce of credibility.
I think you mean "kinetic military actions", as in KMA, which is what 0bama was telling us to do when he first used the phrase.
Don’t care for Ron Paul.....very effective ad.....some truth in it!!!
Is Ron Paul just another useful idiot or what???
Now, tell us how you really feel :)
That video is impressive but not in the way the RP supporters think. As I watched it continually ask for the viewer to Imagine an America occupied by foreign forces that raped, killed, and terrorized the population, it struck me that would be the exact result if we adopted RP’s foreign policies.
I’ve watch this video and it is very powerful evidence that Ron Paul should NEVER get ANYWHERE near making decisions about where our troops should be and why they should be there. This drooling half wit thinks the stupid thought. The stupid thought is that the Islamists only want us dead because we are somehow brothering them and if we leave them alone they will leave us alone.
Those who believe this are ignorant or Islam. Anyone running for president who says these things is either stupid or a liar. So Ron Paul, the guy who supports Bradley Manning is either a liar or an ignoramus.
