Maybe Ron Paul will help the GOP remember what it used to be about (before the religious whackos took over)

Watch this Ron Paul dorm-room interview series and enjoy. Four more reasons why Ron Paul is catching fire on the internet and sticking it to the GOP establishment. Could you imagine McCain or Rudy having the imagination to do a doom-room youtube interview?

You know it doesn't matter how many millions Romney and McCain have. The internet and youtube are the great levelers. And RP is breaking out.

Even if he doesn't win I hope he stays in the race all the way to the convention. He may remind the GOP of the party it used to be. Small government. Low taxes. Rational foreign policy. Live and let live. Government off the backs of the people.

In other words, nothing like the GOP of today, a party that I don't even recognize anymore.

In the meantime China invests $3 billion in private equity firm Blackstone Group. Evidently the M&A activity is just too hot for the Chinese to pass up. Or, their reserves are just too great for the Blackstone Group not to want to get them involved in the market Ponzi scheme. Afterall, think what China's trillion dollar reserves could do to positions Blackstone Group already holds.

That worked wonders in the 1930s, right? Boy, those were the days!! Let's elect Ron Paul and do it again since this time it will be different.

How about you all take a day off from reading blogs and read a history book instead.

Seriously, I like this guy but if he is serious about this he needs something a little more excting than discussing Austrian School economics. I actually studied Hayek and even I was about to fall asleep by that monotone speaking style of Dr. Paul's.

Like it or not folks, politics is about sizzle, not steak and Ron Paul has no sizzle.

Do we want competence or do we want flash?

Bush had the latter and now the middle east is in flames, our country is heading toward insolvency and our fake economy is about to fall off of a cliff

Clinton had both and the country ran pretty well (forget about BJs)

Bush 1 had the former and none of the latter - did OK

Reagan had both

Carter had neither

Ford had neither

Nixon had neither

Things ran well with Bubba after 1995 with a Rep congress. Things ran well with Reagan with a Dem Congress. Carter was a disaster with a Dem congress.

You see a pattern here? As long as we have divided government things will be OK. We don't need a nutjob like Ron Paul.

As for the middle east in flames, you cannot be that naive Keith. When has the middle east NOT been in flames? Fake economy? Whatever dude. Just because we don't have union member slobs making $50 an hour anymore doesn't mean it's a fake economy. Those union slobs should never have been making that much to begin with and their $11 an hour new job is more along the lines of what their true value is. Much like Phoenix housing in 2005 vs. 2007.

Religious whackos?

Anyone who now goes to church or believes in God is a religious whackos?

Well, better that than god-less atheist communists...

keith said...

Yeah, there are no church-going folks in the Dem or Rep camps who believe in separation of church and state I guess

"Religious Whackos" who want the government to enforce and promote their religion are dangerous.

Separation of church and state works best. Without it, you get the mess that we have on our hands today

Meanwhile, for the religious whacko crowd who doesn't get that, we may get our first mormon (romney) or our first jew (bloomberg) as president. Would you like to see either of them promote their religion from the highest office? Or try to put laws in place that does that?

Didn't think so.

Politics and religion do not mix.

You count yourselves that you can vote for somebody like Ron Paul.

My American friends......don't blow it this time and vote for Hillary or Guliani (who speaks for the dead from 911 for some strange reason....who gave him that right ?)

Three things Ron Paul has :
1) Army Vet. How many of the candidates can say that ?

2) Is as close to libertarinasm as your gonna get.

3) Tell's it exactly as it is.

You'd be doing the world a favour if you vote him into power.

Go Ron Paul !!!!

It is a nice sounding theory that when you separate the Christian Church from the state, you get stability, but it does not pass the common sense test.

For instance, I know it is the first words out of any atheist mouth when you try to talk with them about Jesus, “Explain the Inquisition," and “Look how evil the church was!" and "Look what they did in the name of Jesus!"

It is true that about 500 years ago, Christian fanatics killed about 10,000 people over a 100 year time period (about 100/year) in the name of the Roman Catholic church. It is a shame on the record of an organization that claims to be promoting the ministry of Christ. Now compare this record to the example of the countries that have officially done away with religion. To the countries that have outright banned religion and imprisoned those who try to practice it (the ultimate test of the theory of separation of church and state).

Yes, I am talking about Communist countries. In the Communist Manifesto, Engel and Marx declared, "Communism abolishes all religion." In my father's lifetime, the numbers of people that officially atheist countries have murdered in the name of no-religion is staggering; the USSR slaughtered 20 million, China slaughtered 10 million, Communist Cambodia slaughtered 2 million, Communist North Korea has/continues to murder untold numbers, Communist Cuba has/continues to murder untold numbers, the list goes on.

The grand total is over 50 million dead in the last 80-year time span (over 600,000/year). Even comparing the worst time of "Christian Persecution" to an average time of a just one country that has officially and forcefully separated church and state, the conclusion is obvious: Christianity has a huge calming influence on government.

The reason the Ron Paul will never be president:

To paraphrase Alexander Tytler (or at least words attributed to him), the public has already discovered that it can vote itself largesse from the public treasury.

Too many people and organizations are addicted to federal dollars. The Republic will collapse from loose fiscal policy before federal spending can be curtailed in any meaningful way.

Another great quote from Mark Steyn:

"In National Review recently, I took issue with that line Gerald Ford always uses to ingratiate himself with conservative audiences: 'A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take away everything you have.' Actually, you run into trouble long before that point: A government big enough to give you everything you want still isn't big enough to get you to give anything back."

Atheists have a problem. Secularism hasn’t produced much historically and is fairly unappealing. When it has had charge of a cultural, it has either killed millions in brutal states nobody would imitate or committed demographic suicide in dead end socialist Western Europe. There since the 1960’s secularists have manged to shoot through centuries of accumulated cultural confidence and capital in just under five decades.

First of all realize that just because Bu$h says he's Christian, doesn't mean that he is. So you're being pretty ignorant to assume we're all "whackos".

The goal of BushCo is OIL, not religion. A warped view of religion is just the tool they use to deceive, just like Constantine did in the Roman empire. Some of the true Christians were deceived into helping him build his empire. History repeats itself.

Why associate pro-life with the Christian Right ?

I think Ron Paul is a pro-lifer because he looks at it totally from a doctor's and libertarians point of view......

The man has delivered over 4000 babies....I'm pretty sure he can define when a baby is human being with the rights that older human beings have.

Anyway he has said many a time that it should not be a federal matter but a state matter.........which I totally agree with......

BTW you Americans don't know what a wonderful constitution you have......which George Bush and the rest of his neo-cons regard as a rag.....

Who was it that said "The goverment should fear the people, not the people the government"........so true.....and the only man who represents this both from the left and the right side is Ron Paul.

It is good, to be sure. But we should be clear about what we mean by it.

Murder is illegal, pretty much everywhere. Is that a law based on church-based ideas? Not really, because all sane, resonable people can easily agree that you shouldn't be able to go out and kill someone if you feel like it. It so happens that one of the Ten Commandments says, "Thou shalt not kill".

Now then, pro-abortion people like to say that pro-lifers are "religious kooks", but is the desire to defend a defenseless, voiceless fetus necessarily a religious idea?

From what I've seen on this blog, only a small handful of the bloggers have the mental/moral clarity to answer this question coherently.

Right. And plenty of Christians who believe Dubya is sincere in his faith, also believe that he is deeply mistaken in his power-mad, stubborn behavior.

Subscribing to one particular faith or another does not make you perfect, and people within one religion or religious denomination frequently disagree with each other on all kinds of topics, believe it or not.

I know Christian counselors who describe Dubya as "dry drunk". He may have kicked alcohol cold turkey, but he is drunk on power and his own brand of swaggering, macho "I'll make the evildoers tremble in their boots at the mention of my name" wrong-headed thinking.

He's really quite a sick, mentally challenged man.

He of all people need a Savior, that's for sure.

I don't think the 'dominionism*' folks took over - I'm getting the impression the GOP cynically used them (the religious right) to get elected using weird pointless wedge issues (flag burning, stem cells et al). The problem with this is fundamentalism has an ugly habit of turning against the political process it formerly supported (see happy times Middle East). This may come back to bite everyone in the behind: Fascism cloaked in religious robes - how delightfully hypocritical don’t you agree?

Brief Overview of Congressman Paul’s Record

He has never voted to raise taxes.

He has never voted for an unbalanced budget.

He has never voted for a federal restriction on gun ownership.

He has never voted to raise congressional pay.

He has never taken a government-paid junket.

He has never voted to increase the power of the executive branch.

He voted against the Patriot Act.

He voted against regulating the Internet.

He voted against the Iraq war.

He does not participate in the lucrative congressional pension program.

He returns a portion of his annual congressional office budget to the U.S. treasury every year.

The anti-Ron Paul camp here is at best misinformed and at worst may be purposely disingenuous. Ron Paul is NOT an isolationist. He believes in non-Intervention. In other words, we do not have the authority to meddle in other people's countries.

Ron Paul wants:
- smaller government (eliminate the massive bureaucracies in DC)
- abolish the IRS
- abolish the Federal Reserve (the root cause of this housing bubble)

Ron Paul believes that you and I are adults and are perfectly capable of taking care of ourselves without a paternal government telling us how to run our lives.

Keith, have you noticed all these anti-Ron Paul posts? None state any facts. They all attempt to smear and emotionalize. Not a single one states a concrete factual reason against Ron Paul. The best arguments they've come up with so far:

- Paul is an isolationist who want to hurt us
- we don't read history books
- he doesn't have sizzle
- he's a nutjob

Ron Paul wins nearly every online poll, showing he has STRONG grassroots support.

"Secularism hasn’t produced much historically and is fairly unappealing."

Washington, Jefferson, and Franklin were pro secular. Europe today secular and is slowly but surely moving towards majority atheism with some western european/scandinavian countries being as much as 40%+ atheist today. They aren't committing massacres in Sweden and Finland last time I checked. This whole 'Stalin was an atheist and he killed millions of people' is a canard used by Ann Coulter zombies without critical thinking skills. That's like saying Stalin had a mustache and he killed millions, therefore people with mustaches are immoral. Morality does not necessitate theism and vice versa. Religious organizations have fought tooth and nail to keep humanity in the dark ages and believing such drivel as the sun revolving around the earth and the earth being flat. Religious organizations are anti-science. Secularism is pro-science. Push comes to shove, believe me, science wins. Even Pope John Paul II went scurrying to to his doctors and men of science to keep him alive. One way or another you too will bow down to science as your true saviour and put away such childish superstitions like believing in the tooth fairy and a white bearded man living in a clouds.

Okay, as I have said numerous times to those who insist Congressman Paul is a crackpot.
1. How are any of the other candidates addressing a 50 trillion dollar debt?
2. How are any of the other candidates addressing the fact that the GAO, CBO and the Federal reserve ( St. Louis branch ) have all stated or come out with reports stating that the U.S. is now insolvent?
3. What do the other candidates see as viable benchmarks for success in Iraq while the debt meter runs faster and faster and more American lives are lost?
4. How can the other candidates demonstrate that huge government bureaucracies like the Department of Homeland Security have actually given the taxpayer their money's worth considering the country's rapidly deteriorating financial condition?
5. How have the other candidates addressed the coming entitlement melt down?
6. How have the other candidates addressed the need to keep the executive branch within the confines of the Constitution so that accountability to the taxpayer through Congress is maintained?
I hear a great deal of criticism of RP but nobody has offered an alternative that will make a long term difference to this country. All the other candidates are offering the same old tired rhetoric which simply tells me that they can offer no solutions, no real leadership, and no hope. I fear our Republic is near its end. As is usually the case, a Republic ends with weak, corrupt leadership. And in a democratic republic the people get the government they deserve. So the rest of you can support the next political whore who wins your party's primary and then continues to take this country down. 46% or 0%, I'll stick with RP.

Ron Paul does NOT want to abolish all federal spending. He wants to return the federal government to the role originally designed in the Constitution: a weak force helping to organize a collection of powerful sovereign states.

Your examples: FAA, Interstate highways, national parks, FBI, Border Patrol, Coast Guard, and a defensive military (as opposed to an offensive military) can all easily be paid for through Constitutional federal taxes (not income taxes).


One-size-fits-all government cannot work. For example: abortion should be decided by the states. Nearly all of our "controversial" issues can be solved by leaving the decisions up to the individual communities (states). We are perfectly capable of running our own lives without a federal government telling us what we can and cannot do.
