Problem with Ron Paul.. or problem with America?

with 2 comments

For those of you who are following the 2008 presidential race, you should have at least heard some hype around the name “Ron Paul”. It seems you really can’t go anywhere on the internet without some person fanatically speaking about this guy. The truth is, he is really worth all the chatter surrounding his name.

But there is a problem, one which beseeches most average americans. Ron Paul represents an idea that requires an understanding of the past 200 years history of this great nation. When you hear someone say they want to get rid of the IRS, the Federal Dept of Education, etc. it is very easy to just write them off as a loony. The thing is, when you understand how and why this country was created, you will start seeing the slow degradation of yet another great nation. And when you compare what is happening economically for example against previous great nations that have risen to power and then collapsed (like Rome), you start to realize that this country is following the pattern of economic collapse to the T. Unfortunately, most American people do not want to educate themselves to that level of understanding. So when they reject the teachings of our founding fathers, they lose sight and fall into the political trap that exists today. Ron Paul wants to change all of that, he wants to overhaul the government and bring us back to our roots of freedom. Most Americans think they are “free”, when in reality we are one of the most oppressed nations out there. The main stream media has the ability to plant in our brains that we are essentially “free” by repeatedly bashing it into our skulls with skewed news. People will soak up whatever CNN and FOX tell them, and believe whatever side of the story they are telling. There is no “investigative journalism” anymore, it is all a mascaraed.

Message to John McCain from our soldiers:

leave a comment »

John McCain said in a recent debate that our soldiers all support the war – it was directed to Ron Paul.

Well, Ron Paul has more donations from active military than anyone, including John McCain, who’s also a veteran(like Ron Paul) of the Vietnam War, and a former prisoner of war. You’d think the military would bow down to McCain – guess not, eh?

Please Protect Us From Ron Paul

From disinter:

Grizzle Griz has written a Ron Paul article that will literally make you laugh out loud. Here are some excerpts:

On foreign policy:

Because he advocates trade, negotiation, and overall positive relationships with other nations, he is a strict isolationist.

Paul’s foreign policies are backward like Colin Powell’s in 2002. He believes the Bush Administration should pursue Osama Bin Laden rather than lure him into Iraq where he will, no doubt, turn himself into the authorities any day.

On the economy:

Paul’s economic policies are reactionary: hailing from the colonial times when Ronald Regan was the President.

On being a Republican:

His affiliation with the Republican Party is equally laughable. By adhering to its core principles he represents its radical fringe. Having spent one year in the libertarian party and seventy-two in the Republican Party, it is questionable where his loyalties truly lie.

On support from the military:

He is rightly ignored by the troops. Although the FEC reports that Dr. Paul has received more money than any other candidate from veterans and active-duty personnel, his opponents, who don’t believe in conspiracies, know his supporters simply colluded with the FEC to deceive the public.

On his supporters:

His supporters can be even more dangerous. They bring heated debates to political blogs and news columns, which were once serene and comfortable forums to trade baking recipes. His entire support consists of three potheads and one neo-Nazi who each raided their mother’s purses to contribute 15 million dollars over the course of his campaign.

On conspiracies:

Perhaps the most alarming aspect of Dr. Paul is that he, himself believes in conspiracies. In June, he was recorded on camera saying “hmm” to a spokesman for the 9/11 Truth group. He has also stated that some people may be ideologically driven to advocate for a North American Union and highway.

The best part:

Los Angeles Times columnist, Stephen Braun, proved Paul was wrong by interviewing three men filling potholes on Interstate 5. “There is no such highway” they all explained, replacing future tense with present.

Priceless. Read the rest here.
