Filmmaker Oliver Stone would vote for Ron Paul over Obama
thehill.com ^ | 1-24-12 | Jonathan Easley

Posted on 01/24/2012 11:18:09 AM PST by Justaham

Filmmaker Oliver Stone, known for his liberal political views, said he would vote for GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul over President Obama should Paul win the Republican nomination.

In an interview with Rock Cellar magazine, Stone was asked if an economic collapse would lead to the fall of the American “empire.”

“I think it’s a given,” Stone said. “There’s no way that we can continue this spending spree. In fact, I think in many ways the most interesting candidate — I’d even vote for him if he was running against Obama — is Ron Paul. Because he’s the only one of anybody who’s saying anything intelligent about the future of the world.”

Could Paul’s support for drug legalization have anything to do with Stone feeling this way?

This merely confirms that Ron Paul and his gaggle of surrender monkey supporters/spammers are truly insane. Humblegunner's actual, unretouched, real-life photo serves us well for this:

Isn’t RuPaul for legalizing cocaine? Well that’s why Oliver Stoned would vote for him.

I call BS.

He's just encouraging Rupaul to run 3rd party guaranteeing obamao victory.

That’s one more reason not to vote for Ron Paul. Stone is the creepiest commie cuddler in Hollywood.

It just goes to show how stupid leftists are. They don’t realize Paul and Obama are on polar opposites of the spending spectrum. Why even consider voting for one or the other? You’d have to be schizophrenic to vote for Obama and then vote for Paul.

I say it again, if Dr. Paul runs he takes the anti-war stoner crowd away from Obama ergo all the college kids that voted for him last time. That is around the margins reductions for Obama on top of the Hollywood loon types and the Libertarians that would vote for him as well.

My gut tells me he is ego will have him go the Libertarian route. If so and all those that say will vote for him will, I say go for it Dr Paul Run !

Because if that plays out like I mentioned, it hurts Obama more than Gingrich or whomever the nominee is...

It would consist of one very brainy, rational, authentic Conservative who realizes that freedom and liberty are built upon a foundation of unsurpassed military might. Our enemies must be in mortal fear of a powerful, no-compromise, no-quarter-given, ruthless America.

And on the other hand, such an absurd ticket would be "balanced" by a lunatic who favors application of the Golden Rule as a means to deal with evildoers.

Go Newt Go! Restore a confident, strong America!

Go Paul...just go away...far, far away.

Exactly. I have not seen one statement on this thread that is not a simple argumentum ad hominem.

Voting for Obama and then for Paul does not evidence schizophrenia. It just means that Stone doesn't care one way or another about the government's level of spending, high or low, or gold standards, or socialism as such vs, capitalism as such.

What Obozo and the Paulistinian share is a desire to destroy our nation, our military, our defenses, our foreign policy, cuddle our enemies, betray our friends, preserve abortion and promote homosexuality, inter alia. They have plenty of issues in common. Everyone is not obsessed with money, money, money.

Obama is just too conservative and not anti-America enough for Oliver Stone.

unbelieveable comments.

my respect for fellow “Free Republic”ans, has suddenly dropped through the floor. Romney and Gingrich are both globalists. Period. Socialist lights.

Paul is and has been a Constitutionalist. as in, the U.S. Constitution. sort of like the way George Washington was. that guy that strongly URGED the nation to stay out of foreign wars. but what the hell did he know, right?

and because we have allowed the globalists/ Federal Reserve to rule us for the last 100 years (read Rothschild...), we are now BROKE. so we are borrowing against our children’s children’s future to pay for “Foreign Aid”. stupid is about to become TOO painful for words...

and don’t forget it was the GLOBALISTS Bush/Clinton that sent all our manufacturing overseas. NAFTA. GATT. and all the Congress went along for the ride.

well those roosters have come home to roost. and you goobers haven’t figured out why.

The Constitution is a total document. The surrender monkey takes the parts that he likes and says they are constitutional. Parts he does not like he says are unconstitutional.

sort of like the way George Washington was.

George Washington did not blame America for keeping us free and safe. Since when did George Washington want perverts in the military?

at the time, George Washington’s America was not involved in extracting oil from the middle east and propping up half the governments over there with billions of dollars a year in foreign aid.

and George Washington DID NOT permit sodomists in his army. and neither should we, but it seems America as a whole is “ok with that”. perhaps this is another example where America itself is the one that needs some reforming of it’s current degraded definition of virtue, before we continue blaming the leaders we choose...

I read your, I believe, response to another poster. I agree that our problem as a Nation is not the leaders we choose. It is the people who choose these leaders that are the problem. neither Bill Clinton nor obama aer/were the problem. They are/were merely symptoms of the problem.Again, the problem lies with the people who choose these leaders. The Bill Clintons and obamas, as a Nation, we can survive. We cannot and will not survive the people who put individuals such as these in positions of power.
