Ron Paul == Jeremiah Wright
“I detect his voice is changing, maybe his cojones are getting small!”
I agree. I wrote a paper on the isolationists prior to WWII. What was interesting to me was that the disparity of the groups and the many different motives for them to come to essentially the same conclusion. Many of the original isolationists believed America was too good to get involved in the world’s problems. Ron Paul believes we (the USA) are not good enough as a nation to involve ourselves in the world. When terrorists attack happen, it’s a just retribution for our failure to abide by his guidance, he’s saying. Pat Buchanan is much the same. In their minds, the USA is a no good bully.
Some of his libertarian policies seem to make sense - then one finds that it is an accident because the rational is insane....
“I think Ron Paul is one of those old isolationists left over from 1940 who, like the late Sen. Borah, opposed U. S. involvement in World War II.”
He’s an isolationist who belongs to the “Blames the victim first” crowd.
Has Rand Paul made a statement or refuted Ron Paul?
You got it...if we grouped all his comments in one place, it would be eye opening.
Ron Paul is being unmasked. Hopefully, others will wake up too.
If Rand Paul doesn't renounce his fathers views, he will be stuck with them. Just as it is hard to believe that Obama could sit in the pews of Rev. Wright's church for 20 years without having agreed with him, it would be hard to believe that Rand Paul doesn't agree with his father without a firm opposition against his father's views. I don't think he will make a firm denunciation because after all he is famous because of his father and draws on the same supporters.
What a monumentally stupid man.
The man is a psychopath.
JOOZ in 5,4,3,2,....
This. Ron Paul is most easily -- and most accurately -- explained as your garden-variety Jew-hater who is supportive of Islamists because they share his view as to this.
Any other "explanation" of Ron Paul is, to my mind, wholly misplaced.
Scott Walker for president!
To hell with the Republicrat Party!
The old isolationists who thought America too good to engage with the corrupt Old World were a remnant of what was once at least a plurality opinion in the States, one that animated both Know-Nothingism (its stance against immigration) and Abraham Lincoln's conviction that the institution of slavery was a stain on the American moral example to the world, a stain that needed to be burned out by war and scrubbed out with the detergent of slavers' blood (some people still think that, too, and hate the South for reasons they don't really understand; but then, hate is so forgiving that way).
The "Billion Dollar Congress" acted to protect the Tariff, which some people interpreted thereafter as a Republican affection for the U. S. Navy (animated by banana-loving investors), when that isn't the case. The Republicans have always been hair-trigger tax cutters, owing to their ownership by blue-haired millionairesses and their masculine accumulator-consorts ; it was they who tried to cut back the U. S. Army, in a new and dangerous century, to the manning levels of the 1900 Indian-fighting army of President McKinley.
That's exactly why I departed libertarian thinking as I politically matured. I mean I was all-in with it!
Yet, mentally trying to shoehorn everything into libertarian doctrine wasn't lining up with reality as I got older. I think I was 23 at the time when I accepted virtually everything about it.
That was 21 years ago.
When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
