RonPaultards for The ZOT Nomination!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Daily Beast ^ | 12-16-11 | Andrew Sullivan

Posted on 12/25/2011 8:30:15 AM PST by Supreme One

...I thought Huntsman would be my ideal candidate. And indeed, his tax reform proposals--modeled on Bowles-Simpson--are dead-on....

On foreign policy, Huntsman also favors a more realist correction to neocon excess, and would build on Obama's remarkable successes.... And his sanity on climate change--certainty that it is man-made but real skepticism about how to tackle it--is, in my view, the conservative position. And, almost alone among the Republicans, he acknowledges that gay people exist and that our committed relationships merit recognition in the law.

So why not Huntsman? The sad truth is: he simply hasn't connected with the voters, generates little enthusiasm, and has run a mediocre campaign....

Which brings me to Ron Paul. Let me immediately say I do not support many of his nuttier policy proposals. I am not a doctrinaire libertarian. Paul's campaign for greater oversight of the Fed is great, but abolition of it is utopian and dangerous.... There are times when he is rightly described as a crank....

But all this is why a conservative like me is for Obama. What we are talking about here is who to support in a primary dominated by extremes, resentment, absence of ideas and Obama-hatred.

And I see in Paul none of the resentment that burns in Gingrich or the fakeness that defines Romney or the fascistic strains in Perry's buffoonery.... He has now gone through two primary elections without compromising an inch of his character or his philosophy.... He is, in other words, a decent fellow, and that's an adjective I don't use lightly. We need more decency among Republicans.

The constant refrain on Fox News that this man has "zero chance" of being the nominee is a propagandistic lie....

“a conservative like me is for Obama”

This is an article by a homosexual leftist who falsely identifies himself as a conservative. The author is a long time , enthusiastic Obama supporter. He regularly attacks conservatives particularly Sarah Palin about which he spread the most vile and vicious lies. He wants Obama to be reelected.

This is the typical phony conservative who supports Ron Paul. He wants Obama to win. He thinks Ron Paul will help him win.

This is how Christmas day is spent zotting?I am no fan of Ron Pauls but if zotting is the cool thing on Christmas day why not zot all of the people that started threads of lies back in the beginning of the primary?The ones that bashed Perry saying Perry was jealous of Palin and stopped her from speaking at a governors convention?Or the ones that bashed Bachmann’s personal looks and called her a witch then called JR to zot someone because they called Palin a broad?

How about spending this Christmas day banding together to get Obama out of the WH instead of acting like brown noser juveniles?

“he has an excellent point about the need for decency — integrity and civility have been distressingly rare in the GOP of late.”

Here is an example of the author’s so called civility.

gay people exist and ... our committed relationships merit recognition in the law.

Cant' deny the first. But how does the latter follow? Other mental illnesses exist too, but they don't demand "recognition in the law," let alone equation to one of the cornerstone institutions of civilization.

And candidate professing such beliefs forfeits the mantle of "conservative."

Just a few examples of “Paul Pork”

1. $25,000 for the Brazoria County Sheriff to establish a “Children’s Identification and Location Database.”

2. $8 million for the marketing of wild American shrimp.

3. $2.3 million for shrimp fishing research. (How about “throw net - retrieve net.” i would have been willing to teach them that for $1,500,000)

4. $3 million to “secure the acquisition of the McGinnes tract, protecting its critical natural resources and helping consolidate refuge in-holdings.”

5. $5 million to expand the cancer center at Brazosport Hospital.

6. $200,000 for the Matagorda Episcopal Health Outreach Program to fund a “National Health Service Corp Scholar.”

7. $4.5 million to study the effects of the health risks of vanadium.

8. $3 million to test imported shrimp for antibiotics. (Does anyone think there is a big shrimp industry in Paul’s district?)

9. $10 million to repair the Galveston railways causeway bridge.

10. $1.18 million for “Personalized Medicine in Asthma”

11. $100,000 for a “data-driven automated system for nursing students on the Texas Gulf Coast.”

12. $257,000 to “prepare graduates from the doctoral program at the University of Texas Medical Branch School of Nursing to assume faculty roles in schools for nursing with a deficient number of doctoral level faculty.”

13. $1.4 million to buy buses for the Golden Crescent Regional Commission.

14. $2 million to buy buses for Galveston.

15. $5 million for highway spending.

16. $2 million to replace facilities for Galveston bus service.

17. $3 million to replace facilities for the Golden Crescent Regional bus facility.

18. $2 million to repair the Galveston trolley.

19. $2.14 million to renovate the Edna Theater.

20. $13 million for I-69 highway project.

The GOP and Tokyo Rove will give us Romney, but Obama will trounce Romney, because Paul with either go third party?

What did you or anyone expect?

The Democrats and Republicans have been riding in the same limo for years, lining their own pockets.

You missed it?

What did you expect when both beltway parties stand down at the border handing out coupons and rolling out the red carpet for millions to enter illegally? All this during wartime no less, while the political sluts force the tax payers to fund and subsidize their greedy big biz dirt cheap labor, as big biz bankrolls the sluts campaigns?

What did you expect when the U.S. borrows trillions from Communist China, prints and floods the country with all but counterfeit trillions, as the dollar becomes worth less and less. Send hundreds of thousands of jobs to Communist Red China, while at the same time flood the U.S. with millions of low wage labor illegals? More Muslims were imported under Bush than any president...While were at war with them?

Divide the united and control...It's what both beltway party's and the government does.

20 plus years of this, while playing global cop, looting the American treasure, have left America busted, broke and nearly dead on the floor.

Ya think everyone in the hinterlands is blind and can't see our strength, treasure and standard of living cartwheeling down range out of sight?

Come on people..

Oh, come on. Dr. Paul's already advised us that not only would he legalize them, but that the government's engaged in a disinformation campaign about crack cocaine!

Ron Paul! Before the orderlies secure his leather straps again!

Oh, I forgot to wish you the official Ron Paul "look under your bed for Trilateralists" Merry Christmas.

If you read my “review,” you know how I feel about the PS90, LOL! My heart’s on my sleeve. But I’m going to need some weightlifting to handle the M4. I can be in shape in two weeks, but I’m not sure my shoulder will take the kick of a 12-gauge at my age. We’ll see.
