  • Baby Dies Whose Parents Wanted to Stop Life Support Just Because He Was Disabled

    "They didn’t stop support. The baby died while still getting life support. The ethics committee hadn’t made a decision yet."

    Where did it say that in the article? It said the doctors urged the parents to not rush to take him off life support.... but the parents wanted to take him off life support.

    It's possible that the article is wrong, but I'm just going by what it said. Here's an excerpt:

    Before he passed away, doctors said his parents should not rush to take him off life support.

    “If we want to be able to fully understand the consequences [of the haemorrhage], we can’t rush this. We need a few weeks to evaluate his condition,” said Professor Fabrice Pierre, of the department of gynecology and obstetrics at Poitiers CHU, on French TV channel France Bleu. “Currently, we are not giving him intensive treatment; we are simply giving him life support to give us the time to do a proper evaluation.”

    But Titouan’s parents wanted to take him off life support.


    Anyway, I think it's terrible. And yet another sign of the times.

    This is so sad.

    Would they have stopped life support if they hadn’t been told he was going to be handicapped and possibly brain damaged? Something tells me they probably wouldn’t have. :-(

    "Several months ago we never heard of ISIS. Now the media fills up 12 hours of their broadcast day telling us how evil they are, and even gives them free advertising and air time by publishing what they want us to believe and their studio videos. Who benefits? Americans?"

    "Why are we attacking Syria...."

    "Illegal. Congress did not ever authorize any President to attack Syria. Why are Freepers cheering this!?!?!? "


    Thank you, you guys have restored my faith in humanity. Except that I go further than that. I'm honestly amazed that people are still falling for all the propaganda. I can see that our nation needs a lot of prayer.... prayer for people to wake up.

    Thanks for the laugh. That photo of that man jumping into the shot smiling with "racist" in parenthesis, and Ron and Carol walking in the background really did make me laugh out loud.

    If I was amoral and dishonest and wanted to smear someone, it wouldn't be very difficult at all. The fact that you buy every single bottom of the barrel-scraping smear story you can dig up just shows your gullibility, and your obvious, irrational hatred for Ron Paul.

    Maybe you should come over to the Ron Paul forums, and debate some of his supporters, since you are so convinced that RP is an eeeeeevul, insane, white supremacist, anti-semite, kitten-killing, horrible human being. I've been posting there, and I've met lots of good, honest, smart, aware people over there who love America and the constitution and freedom. There are also a lot of Christians over there - the kind who don't boo the Golden Rule or cheer-lead for more undeclared wars. Here's the link, come over and make your claims there, instead of in the comfort of threads like this where other frothing-at-the-mouth Paul haters huddle together.

    I do, however, want to get back to you on your entire view or understanding of liberty, and how that relates to us as Christians. But I haven't had the time to put all my thoughts down in writing, to try to explain to you what I have been realizing, and to show you how extremely legalistic and misguided (even if well-intended) you are.

    "In 2009, RuPaul was named the “Earmark King” of CONgress. Kindly explain how that’s considered fiscally Conservative in any way, shape, or form."

    You may disagree with his reasoning on this issue, but I don't see how you can deny that if he (or any representative) does not designate where the money goes, then it is decided by the executive branch, without the same transparency. He votes against the bills in the first place, but if others pass a bill and the tax-payers are going to have their money stolen, then the earmarks are to give them back their money that was stolen, rather than it go to Obama who will spend it elsewhere.

    And to answer your question, he is a fiscal conservative because he always votes against spending in the first place, and because he wants to drastically slash the size and scope of government. He wants to abolish entire departments... look at all the other so-called Republicans who support all of those programs and departments and continue to grow the government... sometimes even more than the Dems.

    First of all, he said "to independents sick to death of the GOP..." Are you denying that independents who are sick of the GOP like Ron Paul?

    Secondly, the majority of this country are tired of the wars. (read it and weep.) and all the BS going on in politics. So, RP does appeal to many people who are sick of both the GOP AND the Dems, because there really is little difference, especially on the important issues that are slowly destroying our nation. I had to reply because I found it funny that (based on your above post) you seem to think that *your* position is the mainstream one. Sorry, but it just isn't. On FR it is, yes. I'll give you that.

    "Without ethics capitalism is doomed to corruption."

    What's going on is not even capitalism at all. I think everyone should read the book, 'The Creature from Jekyll Island' by G. Edward Griffin. (It's a huge book, but definitely interesting and eye-opening.) That book made me SO angry at what has been going on, and that our country is being looted... and so many people still don't realize it. The worst part is when leftists call it "capitalism" and then call for an end to (all) capitalism. When it is not capitalism or the free market at all. It's collectivism. And I think if everyone realized how much our country is being screwed, there would be no more apathy or people blindly re-electing the crooks who continue the status-quo.

    Some of the replies here were good for a chuckle.

    The idiocy of saying that the most strict fiscal conservative who wants to slash the size and scope of government drastically is a "communist" helping Obama is hilarious.

    And the ultimate irony is that the ones saying that probably support one of the many big-government RINOs or internationalists running against RP, all the while claiming to be "true conservatives." But do carry on! The rest of us will continue fighting to change the status-quo.

    "Those same words could have come right out of Obama’s mouth."

    Sorry, but Obama has expanded the wars, he went against his phony claim to be opposed to the war - his foreign policy is like Bush's, so your statement is just plain incorrect. Even Bill Kristol said that, and called Obama a "born again neocon." You can see that here.

    "Blame America first."

    That made no sense. What is "blame America first" about wanting positive relations with other nations? Are you saying that because I disagree with our current foreign policy, that is "blame America first"? I'm sorry, but that is silly. America is not defined by a particular administration or policies like our current foreign policy. I believe in our constitution, and the principles this country is supposed to stand for. I am concerned about these things because I LOVE America, I consider myself a patriot, and I believe that we have some very unAmerican people in power, who care not about our constitution or our liberties, they just care about power and control. THEY are the ones who are anti-American, not people who criticize their actions.

    "Frankly, as a country, I don’t want to be liked. I want to be feared."

    So having positive relations with other countries is now a bad thing? Have we been THAT brainwashed by the powers-that-be that we now cheer on this world empire and aggressiveness and disrespect for the independence and sovereignty of other nations? Maybe you should answer the question I asked to Jonty, about how YOU would feel if another nation told us what we can or can't do, or tried to interfere in our internal affairs? Would that be OK with you?

    I don't disagree with your point. But I wasn't talking just about Israel's enemies. We give money to both sides. We are not respecting the sovereignty of Israel when we use our foreign aid as a way to have control, or meddle in their internal affairs. That was what RP was saying in the video, and that's why I asked Jonty how he felt about another nation trying to buy control over us, or telling us what we can or can't do. If we, as a nation, profess to be about liberty, independence and sovereignty, then I think our foreign policy should reflect those principles, in how we treat other nations.

    Speaking of that, here's a quote...

    "Observe good faith and justice toward all nations. Cultivate peace and harmony with all....The nation which indulges toward another an habitual hatred or an habitual fondness is in some degree a slave. It is a slave to its animosity or to its affection, either of which is sufficient to lead it astray from its duty and its interest."

    He is not an isolationist. He wants to trade with other nations, be friends with them, and respect their sovereignty - not build "walls" so to speak. Some would argue that what actually is "isolationist" is to have a foreign policy that is aggressive, and controlling or manipulative... because ultimately, that creates enemies or negative feelings toward the US, is that what we want?

    As far as what you said about Israel - I disagree, because if we give 5 times as much to Israel's enemies, then cutting aid to both sides ends being a net advantage for Israel.

    Let me ask you this... How would you feel if another nation, of even a global organization like the U.N ignored our independence and desire for sovereignty, and did things to get control over us, disrespecting our constitution or the will of the people? Would you like that?

    Some of you need to watch the video again. Right after he said that (that they should be like the Hong Kong of the Middle East), he said a very "you know, have a really affluent society." That was a positive thing.

    Also, I find it amazing that even after he said so many things like we should be friends with them, trade with them, and they should have their independence and sovereignty, and that cutting aid to BOTH sides is actually a benefit to Israel... the anti's here ignore all of that, and instead focus on one thing he said, and try to twist it.

    I'm a conservative, but recently I've been becoming more libertarian. Not in my personal values, but politically. I think we are at a point in this country where something has to change, in a big way, or we are finished. We are losing our republic, and getting away from the principles and values this country is supposed to stand for. So I think at this point we need someone who truly is against the status-quo and wants to make big changes, to restore our constitution and liberties.

    I supported Dr. Paul last time around, and I support him this time. If he doesn't get the nomination, I will most likely not vote at all, because I can't in good conscience support any of the other GOP candidates.

    "Your use of the terms “for war” and “oppose war” is interesting. I would say, the necessity of war for national security does not make you “for war.” Don’t all good people “oppose war” unless they need to confront an enemy for their own and their allies’ national security?"

    Well, I wasn't talking about being for or against war in general. I was just saying that opposing a war or supporting a war (especially in this case) doesn't have to have anything to do with being right or left. It does have a lot to do with one's view on the morality and constitutionality of a war... and yes, the necessity of one.

    And to answer your last question, yes, I think all good people oppose war unless it is necessary, just and legal.

    Cincinatus' Wife to RC one "You sound like an Obama supporter."

    Um, wrong, when it comes to foreign policy, Obama is more in line with *your* view, and with the view of most of the GOP candidates. He didn't bring the troops home, he expanded the wars, and continued the same foreign policy of Bush.

    Even Bill Kristol acknowledged that, when he praised Obama for his foreign policy, saying it was just like Bush's, and he called Obama a "born-again neocon." (Kristol's words, not mine.)

    You can see the video of that here: Bill Kristol Praises Obama's Foreign Policy

    Furthermore, I find it a bit silly and ignorant when people say or imply that being opposed to a war is a left-wing or liberal position...Or that being for a war is a right-wing or "conservative" position. If I oppose a war based on my view that it is either immoral or unconstitutional, that has nothing to do with right or left or even Republican/Democrat. So your statement to RC one is both ironic and baseless.

    Yes, he does have a big following among young people. I agree with what you said, but I would add that I think the internet has a lot to do with it. Older people tend to not be online as much. Unfortunately, many of them believe everything they're told by the talking heads in the MSM. Young people are far more internet savvy, and I think they hear more than one point of view, and are able to see through the BS.

    And yes, "freedom is popular" as RP says... Apparently more people in the 50 and up crowd have made the mistake of trading freedom for (the perception of) "security"... How sad that people forget what our founders warned us about that.

The nutcases are the ones who are bankrupting our country with their unconstitutional and immoral foreign policy, and the dupes who have been cheering them on.

    Face it, your hate for him and your pride which makes you unable to give credit where it's due is what is speaking here. It's too hard for you to admit that he was right, isn't it? It's OK, I understand.

    As for the last thing you said, of course he is like a fish swimming upstream in DC. Most other politicians only care about themselves, maintaining control, giving themselves a bigger paycheck, etc. That doesn't mean that his ideas aren't popular - they ARE, with the people. We just need to make some major changes in our government, and that starts with someone who actually does want to change the status-quo.

    I don't have time right now to go through your post chock-full of lies/spin/distortions, but I just want to ask you one simple question. Well, two actually. First question: Does "America" to you mean the policies of a particular administration, yes or no?

    Second question. If a government does things that are either unlawful, or immoral, or unwise or subversive... is it patriotic to accept those things with our mouths shut, and keep cheering them on? Or is it patriotic to point out when our government goes against the constitution they are sworn to uphold, and the principles this country is supposed to stand for?

    If you answered "No" to the first question, America does NOT mean the current policies or actions by a particular administration, then please stop lying, because it is not "anti-American" to want honesty and accountability in our leaders. Only a fool, or brainwashed dupe would think something like that. In this example, those who are anti-American would be those within our government who do things that are unlawful, immoral and subversive.

    If your point is that his support has declined from 2008, then I disagree. Take a look at Iowa, for example. He got 10% in Iowa in 2008, and over 21% in 2012. Besides, it's still just the beginning of this election, so we'll see if we see more (or less) bumper stickers and signs than 2008.

    The term you used brings to mind something I’d hear in an elementary school playground, but I do like and support him. That’s besides the point though, I was just responding to your claim that his support is not real.

    Regarding post #31, you couldn't be more wrong if you tried. Unlike the other candidates, Paul rallies draw crowds in the thousands. And we're talking about enthusiastic, passionate and excited crowds. Even in a little state like Iowa. I don't know about you, but I have't seen that enthusiasm for Romney or Santorum rallies.

    Also, his fund raising - unlike Romney's, from small individual donations is phenomenal. He's at $13M for Q4... far above most of the other candidates, with the exception of Establishment boy Romney.

    Also just take a look at the online discussion forums of the candidates. I'm not saying that's proof because obviously not everyone regularly uses the internet, but if you compare Mitt Romney's forums (I see 2 users online there right now) or any of the other candidates, to Ron Paul's forums, it's like night and day. No contest.

    I was relaying what I heard some others talking about. I didn’t say that theory was mine! lol! I DID say that I get the feeling he’s another status-quo type, but that’s just my opinion based on what I have seen and heard so far... I never claimed that there was enough evidence to come to concrete conclusions about him. So relax, guys and gals.

    I'm not a Perry supporter, and I don't know a whole lot about him, but I think it's silly that some people are saying he should drop out of the race, simply based on his poor showing in Iowa. Remember, John McCain came in 4th in Iowa in 2008.

    I heard something interesting tonight, on another site. This may be completely wrong, but some people were saying that contrary to how it looks now, Mitt Romney might not be the establishment's "pick." They were saying that they think Perry is going to end up being the establishment's guy. He does kinda remind me of Dubya in some ways. No offense to any of you who support him, but from what I have gathered about him, I get the feeling he is another big-government wolf in sheep's clothing, disguised as a conservative...which would just mean a continuation of the same road we've been on. I don't know about anyone else, but I strongly feel that if we don't reverse the course we've been on, we're in big trouble. And we're running out of chances, so I hope people will finally snap out of this slumber they've been in, and realize that we're being played like fools.

  • Ron Paul: "Nothing to fear from global currency" (C-SPAN 3/13/2001)

    Ok, this thread is just more evidence that a lot of people on this site (namely the RP haters) probably don't even click on the OP link on threads having to do with Ron Paul. They just immediately line up for the bashing, name-calling, nastiness and hate for all things Ron Paul, in such a knee-jerk way.

    In the video, he makes an important distinction between "globalism" in the sense of a global economy, free trade and a true free market.... and a "globalism" dictated by the WTO, IMF, world bank that is not about freedom but is artificial and manipulated. He clearly says that the latter type of globalism is what people SHOULD FEAR.

    If you don't like Ron Paul on the issues, it's perfectly OK to disagree with him. But for crying out loud, at least be honest! The dishonesty and distortion here is truly appalling. And almost laughable in this particular thread, where you actually come up with a conspiracy theory that maybe he's an establishment guy in disguise, and they've just been fooling people for the last few decades. *roll eyes* And this is coming from people who chastise Paul supporters for being conspiracy theorists? lol!!

    "Indeed it is the logical singularity of libertarianism that attracts support from all sides. Why? Simply put it allows everyone the prospect of doing more of what they want free of Big central Goverment."

    Let's not bring logic and common sense into this conversation...and interrupt the regularly scheduled hate-fest. :-|

    I haven’t read many comments here on FR tonight, but I just wanted to remind you all that delegates are where it’s at. We don’t know the outcome yet, but some networks have been projecting that delegates-wise, Iowa was basically a three-way tie. Or close to that. (Romney/Santorum/Paul)

    THAT’S not what makes him insane.....those things are the only SANE thing he says. The anti-Semitism etc. is what makes him crazy.

    The "anti-semitism" charge is just one of the ways his political opponents try to smear him. He's not anti-semitic, he just doesn't have the same "Israel can do no wrong" attitude that many other politicians have. Take a look at this video, since you brought up that charge.

    Not helping Israel is CRAZY!

    Paul opposes foreign aid not just to Israel, but to ALL nations. When you think about his position and consider that we have given tons of money to Israel's enemies, his position doesn't hurt Israel at all. If we give 3 billion a year to Israel, and 12 billion to Israel's enemies, then Israel has the net disadvantage, so ending foreign aid to both actually HELPS Israel.

    The bottom line is, Paul believes in the independence and sovereignty of all nations, Israel included. He believes in the biblical principle that "the borrower is servant to the lender" - and just as he opposes generational welfare that causes people to be dependent on the government and gives the government control over people, it's the same idea with other nations. We should not be interfering in their affairs or trying to control them, just as we want other nations to respect OUR sovereignty and not interfere with OUR affairs. I don't think that is "insane" at all, the opposite, in fact!

    Yes, because believing in limited government, civil liberties and the constitution is SO crazy these days!
