If Ron Paul were not a congressman or a Presidential candidate, would he even be allowed to wander the streets? Would he show up on the Secret Service’s threat list?
Perhaps the bigger question is how someone who puts forth such crazy statements is even considered a serious candidate in the Republican Party?
Ron Paul’s stump speeches sound like the ramblings of someone in serious need of a nice quiet and padded room, assisted by some really nice people in white coats.
If you listened to Ron Paul, you would think that we live in a Marxist state where someone who disagrees with our dear leader is simply shot down in the streets. If you listen to Ron Paul, the border fence that most sane Americans want is our version of the Berlin Wall.
Nothing Ron Paul rants about with domestic policy equals his lunacy on foreign policy. He has worked very hard with Barney Frank to gut the size of the military and thinks that there is nothing wrong with Iran having the bomb.
For Ron Paul, paranoid delusions seem to be the order of the day.
Perhaps the bigger question is why Republicans tolerate Ron Paul.
He is not a Republican. He is the proverbial RINO in that he is really a Libertarian but cannot win an election so he runs as a Republican.
As disturbing as Ron Paul is, many of his followers are more disturbing. There are some of Ron Paul’s supporters who are sane people. They are people who will sit down with you and debate the issues fairly and in the end accept that you have the right to disagree. Regrettably, most of Ron Paul’s supporters are not that way.
Talk show host Mark Levin tagged them with a very accurate description a few months back and he is right. Most Ron Paul supporters despise the very liberty that they claim to support. Ron Paul supporters will not allow people to disagree with them.
What is freedom if it is not the right to make up your own mind? Perhaps someone should tell that to Ron Paul and his supporters. They are so obnoxious that Erick Erickson over at Red State has banned most Ron Paul supporters from his site and we have kicked quite a few off of Tea Party Nation for that very reason.
If this is what Ron Paul supporters really stand for, which is nothing more than tyranny, what does Ron Paul really stand for? If Ron Paul supporters are so militant in denying other people the right to speak and the right to choose, what does Ron Paul really believe?
Fortunately Ron Paul is probably not going to get the GOP nomination. But the damage he continues to do in the Republican primary cannot be understated.
"have been getting pretty tired"
"why I likely will not participate very much longer"
Glenn, this was your third post to the site.
Your post prior to this blasted Newt saying he isn't "even close to being a Conservative", made in November.
Your post prior to that accused Perry of being a "closet RINO".
Do you even know what a "neocon" is or are you simply parroting what you've heard/read elsewhere? It's generally agreed a "neocon" is a former liberal.
Thanks for the "third post" info Michael!
Moderators don't read everything. I suspect that they spend their time on coffee Tea Party breaks, most of the time.
Thanks for the heads-up, JMC!
Glenn left, with his several posts.
Those who get a free bus-ride usually leave most of their words behind! But this one earned total deletion.
Not one word belonged here, amongst polite society.
When one finds something really obnoxious, an Issue Report is requested! Not enough janitors are available, sometimes, to both take out the trash and monitor all that is said here.
Thanks again, JMC!
If Romney is the nominee I guess I'll get the boot from TPN. I hope Newt gets it, but if not, it's a very cold day like never before I vote for the establishment elite, rich, east coast Rockfeller RINO. I really do think Romney is a cross between Nixon & Bush. Nixon cause he is sneaky and won't man-up to the PAC attack ads in Iowa against Newt. Like Bush pretending to be a conservative to get elected.
You purists don't seem to understand, while who we nominate is important, it's not the most important thing. The most important thing is getting Obama out of office and winning the congress. Another two years of Obama and a Democrat Senate (let alone losing the House) and I believe we will be beyond recovery. We will revert back to historic governance.
