Since you mentioned borders, did you guys read the latest post on Irving Texas?

Apparently, the vets want to be “spit” on. Paul has received more money from them than any other candidate. Are you calling the Vets, who have already voted with their dollars, fools?

No, it is a loaded action and based on an untrue premise. I supported the Afghan war.

>> And how can you be attacked, when W is doing such an effective job of sealing the southern border?

The typical (il)logic of the typical ElRon supporter.

I don’t recall mentioning support of W at all, let alone his immigration policy.

They call that a straw man argument. By the way, it failed.

Another RonBot scam, debunked many times.

“affiliated with military” DOES NOT mean active duty soldiers.

My goodness. Can’t y’all support your candidate without lying, spamming, and scamming at every turn?

Nevermind: I’m sure the answer is a a simple, “No, we can’t; without our lies, his performance would be even more miserable than it already is.”

This is not a slam against you. One thing I learned about campaign donation sites is that you can pretty much list any job you want to. I remember seeing so called local vets using their name and rank on John Kerry's campaign website. In the local phone book no such person lived at that address.

I asked a specific question, and I guess I have my answer in a weasely way.

You think that the sacrifice of vets in the Korean, Vietnam, and Iraq wars is all meaningless. Just wanted to be sure what Paul’s supporters believe.

Anyone who thinks that islamic fascism isn’t a threat to national security and needs to be confronted by our Military forces is a fool.

So your idea is to continue running our military ragged fighting patches of terrorists throughout the Middle East, while our borders remain open and Muslims are emigrating here & becoming more belligerent at our way of life.

I prefer the Paul approach. Let these people stay where they are & kill each other, get rid of the foreign aid boondoggles, and stop meddling in these medieval hell-holes.

Where’s the part about how Ron Paul thinks we should let terrorists strike first with a nuclear weapon? Or let tens of thousands die from a nerve gas strike?

Let me know when you find the BS where he says this.

"... without our lies, his performance would be even more miserable than it already is."

Hahaha, you Ron Paul-haters are too funny ... if he's such a poor performer, why do you always need to harp on him? Don't you realize the more negative comments and articles you post about him, the more attention you're drawing to him? And that only increases his popularity when more people hear his sensible policies!!

Bwaahahaha ... keep it up ... your smear campaign is backfiring spectacularly ... LOL

Oh, so you agree with leftist Noam Chomsky that the U.S. caused the rest of the world to hate us by throwing its weight around?

Actually, one could argue plausibly that "free trade," which Paul claims to support, actually caused Islamofascism, because the trillions the Muzzies have earned selling us oil is the only reason why they have any geopolitical clout at all. I sometimes think the world would have been much better off if the West had just driven the camel jockeys into the Persian Gulf and taken the stuff. After all, it was our technology, men and capital who found and developed the stuff.

Nice ad, but it looks an awful lot like a giant campaign contribution. That’s fine with me, but is that still legal in America?

Ping for the full-page ad in USAToday. Travis has the image of it here. Pretty nice.

“That’s actually a very well made ad. Too bad that Ron Paul thinks he’s worthy company of those great men, though.

Where’s the part about how Ron Paul thinks we should let terrorists strike first with a nuclear weapon? Or let tens of thousands die from a nerve gas strike?

Must be a simple oversight.”

Or an out and out GD lie, propogated by people with a socialist bent and a never ending ability to keep voting for socialists like McRomneysoniani.

Why don't you explain to us the meaning of the sacrifice that was made for the US in Korea?

What did it mean for their sacrifice when MacAuthur was fired for actually trying to win in Korea?

Do you support our continued presence there?

Explain why you support the failed intervention in Veitnam escalated by LBJ?

Apparently, Bush isn't so impressed with the sacrifices made in Iraq since he's allowing his military to seize the paychecks of servicemen for failing to serve out the time of their sign-on bonus while sending $500 million to Mexico.

What does Bush giving hundreds of millions of dollars to the imaginary Palestinian state mean for the sacrifices made in the war against Islamofacsim?

Explain why we have "rules of engagement" when fighting terrorists in the WOT in Iraq?

Try to explain your support for globalist interventions without betraying your schizophrenic allegience to their failures.

If not for America's servicemen, Korea would have been an entirely communist nation.

Paul never acknowledges that. And that clearly means nothing to you either.
