It’s amazing to see so many supporters of President Obama’s military policies to go hunting in so may countries for terrorists in one form or another. From the Congo to the Middle East to Central Asia, all will taste his wrath in bringing justice to The Terrorists in our name’s sake. At least all those populations will love us when the President is done securing those nations for democracy and our continued safety. He’ll be doing the same for us, here, soon.

I will hope and lovingly( unconditionally)pray Ron Paul drops like a rock tied to Obama into the ether of bad ideas. Not buying it, voting for it nor imagining it.

FYI Paul would stop funding the UN.

Cut and Run will not do anything. He has never done anything in the quarter plus century in Washington. That is except collect as many earmarks as possible. He does know how to bring home the bacon, but that and blaming America for every problem in the world is all he ever does.

Yes, it’s offensive; but I already knew Ron Paul sided with the most radical “pacifist” Leftists (code pink, ANSWER, cindy Sheehan, etc.) and 9/11 “Truthers”. After 8 years of their filth, I find it hard to summon the same anger anymore. Ron Paul is a wack-job, as are most of his supporters. I’ve already dismissed him (and them) as such.

That's not a Ron Paul ad. Check the disclaimer at the end. It's from something called "The Revolution PAC" and is "not authorized by any candidate or candidate's committee."

Frankly, it smells like Willard.

Did you watch the video?

What do think might be "offensive" about it?

Other than the graphics, I mean.

Paulbots are just like the online community organizer Obamabots when they are trying to be sneaky. They are 100% for their candidate but they pretend like they are neutral while informing everyone why they have decided to support their heroic candidate. There are a couple of posts like this in this thread.

Paulbots use the word "neocon" the same way Liberals use the race card. Anyone that doesn't support Obama is called racist and anyone that doesn't love Ron Paul and his strength through weakness foreign policy is automatically a neocon.

For this video to be accurate about Americans in Iraq for instance, we need to have :

1) An Texan equivalent of Saddam Hussein who uses WMDs to gas fellow Texans, attacks a neighboring state ( Kuwait ) and bankrolls terrorists.

2) A Texan equivalent of Sunnis who hate Shias and vice versa.

3) An American equivalent of Iran.

Yes, we can imagine all those, but to put a moral equivalence between our our presence in Iraq and China’s presence in Texas is an idiotic flight of fancy.

As I watched it continually ask for the viewer to Imagine an America occupied by foreign forces that raped, killed, and terrorized the population...

sounds like most "sanctuary cities".

I wonder if Ron Paul has read the Duelfer Report, knows about the WMD’s going to Syria, or is aware of the records we captured from Saddam showing his sons recruiting jihadists to attack US and Britain interests worldwide.

Or if he knows the interrupted Iraqi plans to bomb Radio Free America in Prague or Saddam’s captured communiques from his field operatives in Afghanistan telling Saddam to expect the US to retaliate after 9-11 because the US had proof that Iraq was involved - shortly after a Prague informant recognized Atta’s photo as being the same guy who had met with the Iraqi official in Prague earlier in 2001, a fact that was only known to Czech officials and our own CIA, which suggests that Saddam’s people had an “in” with our CIA...

There’s way, way too much stuff that’s never been fully hashed out by the public so officials can get away with saying stuff that doesn’t fit the evidence at all.

It isn't just an attack on our foreign policy, it's a direct attack on our military.

So, maybe that's why he's recieved more donations from active duty military than all other GOP candidates combined?

Just imagine, there is no RuPaul, no paulbots, or spamming of the internet from the weed lovers. Imagine, they actually knew what foreign policy was, imagine that RuPaul did’nt call a traitor, a hero. Imagine that this crazy old goat was sitting at home watching Lawrence Welk and leaving normal Americans alone. Imagine if Iran does develop working Nukes and RuPaul chooses to ignore them when they first strike Europe..it’s Europe’s problem after all. Imagine his campaign being over by the end of March! Thank God! The craziness will end.

I am not offended by it and I am retired from the Marine Corps. I am a proud Vietnam vet who believes we should rein in our GOVERNMENT and its imperial proclivities. We were, after all, created as a Constitutional Republic, not an empire.

This is a disgusting, reprehensible ad. Someone that feels this way is even more dangerous to American Sovereignty than the “occupier” in the WH right now. Again, it also shows the pure idiocy of a large part of the American public about American history. To even compare a scenario like the one to what is currently taking place in Afghanistan and/or Iraq shows not a distortion, but a complete annihilation of the facts. *steps away & shakes head* in disbelief that there are people who have been brainwashed enough to believe this crap....*guesses that the spoonful of sugar gets passed around quite a bit among the Ron Paul crowd*

Yes, Islam is a political system and one that has no borders to boot. Therefore is innocent people who end up in the cross hairs which is exactly what Islam wants, the destruction of the innocent. So rather than gallivanting all over the world wasting precious resources, aka human lives, we should focus on keeping them out of our borders while being prepared to stand with Israel when hasatan comes calling.

Do you suppose that, even should we fall so far, 100-plus million Americans, with an average of two or more firearms EACH, would just leave the field to the invaders?

And were WE to continue our current intrusive trends, alienating our friends as well as enemies, just WHO might come to OUR aid?

But more than that, WHY DO WE NEED a “world leader”? Are you so arrogant as to think that somehow WE have some right or duty to use our “might” to impose our will on other nations? WHO MADE US THE MASTER? Isn’t that what Ancient Rome did? Their downfall started the day their Republic turned into an empire.

I'm with you.

Doesn't anyone wonder why after 9/11 our borders are still wide open, in the name of political correctness our 'leaders' continue to invite the enemy in and pander to them? Then, for our own good, we are subjected to an ever encroaching police, surveillance state.

HaSatan never works in the wide open, he works under cover by sneaking in the back door because it is the golden rule of covenant from the beginning that if one enters through the front door, then one accepts the terms of the covenant and thus is responsible to protect those they entered in with rather than destroying them. That is why no Islamic Jihadi that attacks innocent people in the name of Allah, comes through the front door when they make their attack. Political correctness is a back door entrance, plain and simple.

Not only is it offensive on it’s premise, it is completely annoying with it’s rachetted up volume and EQ changes in the narrator. This is straight out of “Prison Planet”.

First, no chinee troops would ever reside in Texas— not for long. Second, the US was in Iraq with a multinational force, and sanctioned in it’s actions by the various nations in the coalition. This video makes a moral equivalence that simply does not exist.

Now, if Paul wanted to talk about the takeover of our own countrymen by our government, in the name of “secuuuuuurity” that would be a different point altogether.
The notion that trading partners don’t go to war— is historically and factually false. There is much that makes sense in the “Reason” point of view. This, as a foreign policy leaves us vulnerable in major ways.
That is the problem with kumbayah and “peace brother” libertarians— the commercial hippies political party. Wow, man... far out— can I have another hit?

IMAGINE.....

We had a balanced budget and were not a penny in debt...

We would not have to worry about foreign troops in Texas, or any other state....

The biggest National Security Interest is our ability to project force. We can no longer do that, and we along with the rest of the world are much less safer because of it.

RP is polarizing as hell and is the antithesis of the establishment GOP.

If Romney gets the nod, is the candidate and Paul runs 3rd party the GOP deserves the outcome.

If Obama is elected again, the GOP deserves to go the way of the Whig Party and cease to exist as a viable political entity.
