On principle Paul is in line with the founding fathers and the original of the Constitution. The US today has an offensive military force and employs it around the world at the whim of the president. The founders envisioned defensive forces, stationed inside the boundaries of the country supplemented by local militias. The founders did not envision the US becoming involved in what they considered to be “foreign entanglements” across the globe. Paul claims he would scale the armed forces down to a defensive posture. My comments here are not intended to endorse Paul.
I do believe George Soros, possibly allied with convert support from Arab states and the Chinese, will gladly fund a Paul or Trump third party run in 2012 to ensure an Obama victory. Recent history shows a third party candidate can siphon enough popular votes to shift the Electoral College in close races. Perot enabled Clinton to win in 1992 and 1996 by attracting conservative Republicans. In 2000 Ralph Nader under the Green Party flag captured enough liberal voters in Florida to give George W. Bush a tiny popular vote margin and Florida’s electoral votes. Had Nader not run, Gore would have won Florida on election night by a few thousand votes and the electoral crisis of 2000 would not have occurred.
If the Republicans choose Romney to carry the flag in 2012 it is almost certain Paul or Trump running as a third party candidate would attract disaffected conservative and libertarian voters unable to vote for a moderate Republican who has at one time or another supported government run healthcare, open immigration, and abortion rights not to mention being a poster boy for Wall Street. In close swing states Paul or Trump would almost certainly receive enough votes to allow Obama to win the popular vote and the state’s electoral votes.
My instincts tell me the odds of a Paul and/or Trump third party run is very high. Splitting the Republican vote is the sure fire way for the Democrats to achieve victory in 2012. Hopefully the RINO leadership intent on nominating Romney has a winning game plan for this scenario. At this point in time it is difficult to envision what that game plan might be.
I always suspected a RuPaul/Soros connection. And now we have it outlined. Thanks for posting this valueable article!
Since the federal gov of the USA is borrowing 43 cents for every dollar it spends, is over 16 trillion dollars in debt, is it not a good idea to look for ways of maybe spending a little less? I do believe that GOP leadership agreed to let Obama cut 500 billion from defense NEXT YEAR, any way Obama wants to. With our debt there are no easy solutions to be had. Ridiculing those making a serious, sincere effort to reduce debt is not helpful.
RuPaul tied to Georgy Schwartz? That tops it!
“Ron Paul is one of the outstanding leaders fighting for a stronger national defense. As a former Air Force officer, he knows well the needs of our armed forces, and he always puts them first. We need to keep him fighting for our country.” Ronald Reagan
“Ron Paul is a kook, a nutcase, insane, in-cahoots-with-George-Soros-to-promote-the-demise-of-the-United States, pro-abortion, open borders, a$$wipe, liberal, surrender-monkey, king of pork, big government, non-viable pretender. We need to keep any mention of his ideas from infecting the people” - Lex Lemming
I said this JUST YESTERDAY that I bet PaulBots are a Soros funded attempt to defeat Newt so that Romeny will win the GOP
Willard is NOT the only candidate that can defeat Obama, I think he is the only candidate that can be DEFEATED by Obama.
Remember, he is the LOSER who lost to McCain, who is THE LOSER who lost to Obama last time.
I can only assume from your continued spamming of breaking/front page news with Paul stuff the last few days that you’re pulling for Romney in IA, no?
This is NOT BREAKING NEWS.
God, Ron Paul isn’t the second coming.
Another reason not to vote for that treasonous POS.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
BTW, how did the founding fathers envision a local militia defending against Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles?
To the Left of Obama on foreign policy? More like to the right, the rest of the republican field is to the left.
