So, you don't support the Constitution? Or the Troops?
The "intellectual" republicans are incorrect in virtually ALL of Ron Paul's positions. But why let facts enter into this, right?
The "intellectuals" are using lies to say RP's foreign policy with respect to Iran is 'dangerous'. Bald-Faced Lies.
They know that the non-thinkers in the GOP won't bother to fact-check them, and take them at their word as they attempt to unbiblically wrap themselves in the Lord's cloth.
Truth is Truth - if one is required to break the 9th Commandment in order to gain votes, does that make said political hopeful "honest"?
The IAEA report NOWHERE STATES that Iran is actively seeking a nuclear weapon, much less that they are within weeks or months of acquiring one... much less a nuclear missle striking Israel (nor the USA).
Dr Paul also thinks that Israel is more than capable of dealing with her neighbors as a sovereign state. We all know that militarily, no one in the region would stand a chance against her. Bankrupting our nation in order to keep chains on Israel does Americans no good - neither is it biblical, if one is a person of faith.
Ron Paul's stance on 911 is in full concurrence with the CIA. The CIA states that we weren't attacked because we are Free. They state we were attacked because of our unconstitutional meddling in the affairs of Arabs since 1953.
Several of the 911 Commissioners stated that they believe that the Bush Administration, Pentagon and Intelligence organizations did not fully tell the truth with regards to their input on the Report. Those same commissioners believe that a full, independent investigation into 911 should be carried out.
Paul Wolfowitz agrees with Ron Paul with regards to American Military in the shadow of the House of Saud. It will cause further blowback due to the "infidels" being so close to Mecca.
So, to think that RP lives in political fantasyland is to be outside of the realm of reality.
He is on the correct side in terms of History, Constitutionalism and Biblical doctrine.
If Ron Paul is wrong, then aren't all of the experts from where Ron Paul gets his information also incorrect?
Man, that's a lot of incorrectness if true.
One should check their premises if they think scrutiny will hurt Dr Paul. Especially if the "intellectuals" are half as intellectual as they portray themselves to be.
With regards to the Gold standard - it is also FACT that governments that are forced to have something backing their currency can NOT have the rampant spending that we 'enjoy'.
It forces government to live within its means, just like the people. Only banks and the Uber Left would think that living within ones means is not mainstream. If it doesn't matter, why bother with a link to the debtclock? The Leftist GOP hopefuls will not cut a single cent of spending. All of their proposals take away some increases in spending... so we'll still spend more money, but just not as much as Obama. They'll increase the debt, just at a nicer pace.
In fact, I'd wager (if I were a betting man) that the majority of folks registered GOP were alive when the US was taken off of the gold standard.
It wasn't all that long ago.
So here we are back at the beginning.
The Leftist Big Government GOP Establishment will attack Ron Paul.
If he has ANY chance of a response via the media or advertisements, the scales will (hopefully) fall from the eyes of the people that were unknowingly Leftists themselves.
I quoted Ronald Reagan the other day, perhaps you missed it.
If you analyze it I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism.
The Libertarian Party should also be considered the Conservative Party - as historically the two are closer to being congruent than the Pro-War Unconstitutionalists. Libertarians began to abandon the GOP when the GOP began to be corrupted by the Left.
The government big enough to tell you what is good (or bad) for you is also the same government big enough to tell you who you are able to pray to. Big enough to tell you who you can work for. What you can say. Where you may or may not travel. Whether or not you may raise children. When you will be sent to GITMO. Who should be killed.
