Skip to comments.Marching Orders for Paulís Volunteers: Do Shave, Donít Tweet
Posted on 12/29/2011 4:47:36 AM PST by BCrago66
Ron Pauls college-aged volunteer army a core of the powerful ground organization that is the envy of rivals is descending on Iowa from around the nation to coax people to the states Republican caucuses as he seeks to pull off what only months ago seemed like an unthinkable victory here on Tuesday.

Yes, shave, shake off the occupy dirt, take a bath, and for heaven’s sakes, leave your bongs at home.
IOW, the Paul supporters are supposed to dress, act and look like missionaries. Hmmm. They might be mistaken for Romney supporters.
Gnarly dude! But their attitudes will still give them away. ;-)
One can only wonder how long the support from these college kids will last once they figure out that their college loan programs would be eliminated?
I was born too early and lived a sheltered life.
Had to look that one up:
LOL!! I tended to avoid dating anyone in the 60’s that said it. :-)
Sex, drugs and free skools. Gnarly dude!
I thought it was a late 80's So Cal Valley term? I always associate it with the movie, Fast Times at Ridgemont High....also makes me think of tall, teased hair and leg warmers! LOL
Time has really gotten away from me!
If the characterization of Ron Paul’s supporters can be so wrong... it puts into question the rest of the Statist RINO assumptions.
Enforce our Borders
End the FED
Protect the Second Amendment
Statist RINOs on the wrong side of history.
Lead, follow or get out of the way.
"We're from your future government, and we're here to help."
It may have been later than the 60’s. I tended to avoid anyone that said odd things......like the guy that called me a fox. I couldn’t figure out why he thought I was an animal. LOL
And they say they are under strict orders: To look, dress, shave, sound and behave in a way that will not jeopardize Mr. Pauls chances.
No tats, another volunteer, Rocco Lucente, said as he ticked off the rules after arriving at the airport Tuesday night. No liquor, no drugs and, he said, no fraternizing in the dorms, nothing like that.
Why are the milquetoast, meally mouthed, stand for nothing, Obamalite, Statist RINOs in such a tizzy. They should’nt be so afraid of principled positions.
Why not just go hide under the bed so that Ron Paul the boogeyman can’t scare them so badly.
You’re darn right Ron Paul is scary. He’s MUCH to old to be elected and he’s part of the “Blame America” crowd. NO THANKS!
I was addressing the response of the posters rather than the content of the article.
I agree that Ron Paul supporters are going to have to be held to a higher standard to counter the Alinsky style smear job.
Statist RINO solutions are no longer going to cut it.
Whackjob freak Ron Paul doesn’t want to build a border fence to enforce our southern border...
...because he thinks that the US government will, Soviet-style, use it to keep American citizens in, once the currency collapses:
Ron Paul is a mentally defective freak, and so is any supporter of his over the age of 18.
May your chains set lightly upon you sir. No Milquetoast RINO for me... I’m not settling this Time.
You don’t know how to think, how to argue, how to respond when confronted with actual facts. Like a obedient little underling, you just keep repeating your mantra to quiet your own anxiety...
(Internal dialog: “Oh no, more evidence that Ron Paul’s a whackjob...um..RINO Statist! RINO Statist!)
Here’s Ron Paul supporting a Congressional investigation to see if the US physically executed the 9-11 attack on the World Trade Center:
Here’s Ron Paul calling Bradley Manning - the guy who leaked thousands of American military and diplomatic secrets, getting American & our allied killed - a “true patriot”:
Here’s Paul stating that it looks like Gov. Rick Perry is meeting with the Bildebergers, as part of the international conspiracy to control our currency & natural resources:
The anxiety is creeping up again, Kinzua.
To make yourself feel better, I suggest you chant “RINO Statist” 100 times, like a good mind-numbed cultist.
Wartime brainwashing that Islam is inherently warlike. (Apr 2011)
We're endangered as a result of our foreign policy. (Apr 2011)
We manufactured fear about Saddam, Al Qaeda, & Ahmadinejad. (Apr 2011)
Ron Paul is an old, dangerous KOOK!
I don’t believe Ron Paul is truly in charge of his campaign. Observing his debates he is too scatterbrained.
There are some powerful string pullers fomenting his ‘yutes’. Probably a bunch of anarchists more than libertarians.
Just along for the ride and the rewards ($$$$$$).
I can believe that. He appears to know nothing about Islam or the Qu’ran.
Paultard 01: How far is it to Iowa?
Paultard 02: Uh.. not sure. Did you tell your Mom you were going?
Paultard 01: Um not really. She was mad already that I didnt clean the basement. She freaked when she saw my bong out on the table. She can be really tyrannical, typical statist, she was griping that she wants some rent from me. She isnt very freedom minded.
Paultard 02: Well she just doesnt understand. She sounds like a neocon. When Ron Paul becomes President drugs will be legal and then the real Revolution will begin.
So instead of settling, you plan to vote for a loon instead? You plan to vote for a guy who thinks gender troubled traitor Bradley Manning is a patriot and a hero? Do you believe we still need to "find the truth" about 9-11 because the US government may have been behind it? Do you think Bush was happy about 9-11 because it gave him an excuse to attack Iraq? Are you staying up late at night quivering in your boots about Bilderberg Group conspiracies?
Sorry, no one is smearing Paul. Just the opposite actually, he's been given a free pass for far too long. RP's problem is that he is a conspiracy nut with naive isolationist foreign and defense policy views. Does he have some good things to say about domestic economic issues? Yup. Unfortunately with Paul, the REALLY bad ideas and conspiratorial thinking are just too nutty and dangerous to ever consider voting for him.
Hey sweetest you!
Great post! NO ROMNEY!
Many years ago I used to work with a guy who hated Israel and Jews. He actually got kicked out of the John Birch Society because he was too radical even for them. He used to show me issues of this nutty, far far out (into outer space) rag called "Spotlight." It was reading that rag I discovered how the evil Jews and Israelis (gasp, horror!) were conspiring to conquer the world. Every time I see Ron Paul and read his opinions, I think of that nutty rag.
Guess its a good thing I don’t have to take an IQ test before I vote:)
Thanks for your insight and generous helping of your own outstanding intellect and debate.
The Old fella is forcing the conversation to the right.
Thanks for a relatively civilized response.
How is the vote by the pervert Paul to force homosexuality on our military bringing the conversation to the right? How is Pauls insistence on blaming America for terrorism and his insistence on fighting for the rights of Islamic dictatorships to nuclear weapons forcing the discussion to the right?
The pervert Paul corrupts conservatism and is a full blown Code Pink leftist.
“Mr. Lucente, a 19-year-old from Ithaca who is a sophomore at Alfred University, said the Republican Party had been hijacked by a social conservative war party that had lost sight of the idea that the government should be out of the way, one of Mr. Pauls abiding principles.”
Many Iowans will also be offended. (I used to be one, and have more than two decades of dealing with the state even when I wasn't a resident.) Things like this may help make clear the difference between libertarian principles and conservative principles.
One good thing about this is maybe Ron Paul's pro-business approach will help these young volunteers learn the importance of professional appearance that will be important in getting a job once Paul's campaign is over.
Example: “Even before flying here on their own nickel, some students said they had been instructed to cover up tattoos and told that their faces should be fresh-shaved or beards neatly trimmed, wearing only nice clothes that one described as business casual.”
I like that instruction. Ron Paul isn't wrong about everything, but he shouldn't even be running for the presidency.
(Exception here for military tattoos. I don't encourage tattoos of any sort, and neither does the modern military, but if you're willing to carry a rifle for our country, I don't think I ought to object to you paying someone to inject ink in your arm. That's the servicemembers’ choice and I'll respect their choice.)
