DreamWeaver: rufus-t-firefly: manimal2878: JusticeandIndependence: Earmarks is the responsibility of the Congress. We should earmark even more. We should earmark every penny. So, that's the principle that we have to follow and the - and the responsibility of the Congress. The whole idea that you vote against an earmark, you don't save a penny. That just goes to the administration and they get to allocate the funds.


I've read this twice and still don't understand his point.

He's saying it's only bad when other people take federal money, when he takes it it's only because they would have spent it anyway.

Or "it's virtuous to get federal spending in your own district, especially if you can appear principled by voting against the bills.

You get federal projects and you get re-elected, all while grandstanding against federal spending."

if more congressman were as principled to vote against the bills like Paul does the bills would suddenly stop passing.

Again youre confusing the fact that were looking for the best presidential candidate available, not the perfect person to be president.


If I were to use Ron Paul's "principles," I could pick up a bag of money dropped by a bank robber with no guilt whatsoever. Hey, I didn't steal it, right? If only that criminal was as principled as I am, he would just have waited for someone else to rob the bank.

Hunter_S_Thompson: Remember, kids: here on FARK if you don't like endless wars, TSA, PATRIOT, drug wars, erasure of all civil rights, then you are a wild-eyed racist homophobe and need re-education. And need to buy some carbon credits, because you don't already have enough white guilt.



Your hypocritical Republican party shoved all that shiat down everyones throats, scaring you into thinking they were here to protect you from the devil who was going to destroy America. The corporations who own the media are all right wing conservatives, but your opinion is voting for a right wing conservative in a right wing conservative party will *CHANGE* everything once he gets elected because he will be King and can do what he wants.

The truth is the Democrats have been anti-war since Vietnam. Anti-drug war since the 80's but conservative pressure and the voters scare everyone into the status quo. If you really wanted no wars, no patriot act, you shouldn't have voted for REPUBLICANS in the first place.

"Consider the Lawrence case decided by the Supreme Court in June. The Court determined that Texas had no right to establish its own standards for private sexual conduct, because gay sodomy is somehow protected under the 14th amendment "right to privacy". Ridiculous as sodomy laws may be, there clearly is no right to privacy nor sodomy found anywhere in the Constitution. There are, however, states' rights - rights plainly affirmed in the Ninth and Tenth amendments. Under those amendments, the State of Texas has the right to decide for itself how to regulate social matters like sex, using its own local standards."

DreamWeaver: intelligent comment below: Forgot_my_password_again: why this guy is so popular is a mystery to me.


Because a lot of idiots believe the Republican party will suddenly change and become anti-war and pro drug legalization.

name calling. cute.

A lot of people believe the republican party will SPLINTER, is more accurate. Im one of those, and Ill support Paul even more if he causes that to happen. The religious right needs to be seperate from the libertarian oriented and shown to be uniquely insane. There are still republicans who are fine with abortion, weed, and gays. Theyre just drowned out.


so it's important to you that libertarian insanity, what-ever-ron-paul-is insanity and religious insanity are all seperate? Do you still want them to be equal?

This is why

"Freedom is not defined by safety. Freedom is defined by the ability of citizens to live without government interference. Government cannot create a world without risks, nor would we really wish to live in such a fictional place. Only a totalitarian society would even claim absolute safety as a worthy ideal, because it would require total state control over its citizens' lives. Liberty has meaning only if we still believe in it when terrible things happen and a false government security blanket beckons."
― Ron Paul

Absolutely correct that this is why.

Dim-witted rhetoric built around childish strawmen and knee-jerk anti-government dogma is NEVER out of fashion in American politics.


Hey, it got bush elected. Twice. And also got Obama elected. So he's trying methods that are proven to work, right?

Seriously people, You don't have to vote for ANY asshat you see out there. If enough people refuse to vote, a re-election gets called and (if I recall correctly) the speaker of the house takes the reins until a new guy gets chosen.

I doubt it. Republican voting people might not agree with everything on the mainline GOP platform, they will still vote R 99% of the time.

In order to get onto that ballot at all, you have to impress the GOP's most outspoken, politically active base: the AM-radio, Fox News Derp Corp.

The GOP won't splinter for the same reason that the Democratic would never break ranks: It's too close to 50/50, a schism would be a De facto total victory for the other party and everyone knows it.

physt: Philip Francis Queeg: DreamWeaver: Yep hes wrong about this. Not lookin for the perfect president, just the best available. So Im not sure it matters, since Paul has made it clear that he doesnt support using ones religion to legislate. He, for instance, doesnt give two shiats whether you use birth control.

He does however give many shiats whether you get an abortion or marry a same sex spouse. He cares so much about those issues that he has introduced a bill limiting the access to the Federal Courts and limiting the applicability of the equal protection clause on those issues.

He just a racist, gold bug with his own definition of LIBERTY!

But for RONPAUL lolbterarians this only means he is more popular than ever.

Think about it...when he was finishing 4th in 3 person elections, the libertardians said it was all part of the grand plan and it just proved that RON PAUL! is super duper popular.. so popular in fact, that people are not able to concieve of him much less actually vote for him...thus his lack of, you know, actual votes. Now that he will get zero votes and zero coverage, it just makes him a singularity...pure awesomeness...we should all stand in awe of this man. Cuz it is either that or lulbiturdianism is actually not popular and RON PAUL is a guy hack selling books to the gullible, and that cannot possibly be the truth.

/RON PAUL!

DreamWeaver: havocmike: Before we drop this, I need a question answered.

Here in Alabama, his supporters were still standing on high profile corners, waving signs and carrying on.. two full months after our primary, and any of our neighboring states primaries.

Why?

The only legitimate response to this is to ask why werent you doing the same for your guy? Too busy to find an hour to support democracy I guess?


because it would have been moot after the primary, especially had my guy only earned 3-7% of the vote.

Tyranny is just fine as long as it's at the state level. That's the biggest thing RON PAUL supporters always overlook.

For all his positions about liberty and freedom and limited federal government, he has no qualms whatsoever about oppressive state government. He's not a libertarian. He's a neo-confederate*. This is a perfect example. He thinks that the sexual practices of consenting adults behind closed doors is a legitimate interest of the state government and that the state government should have the power to regulate, and criminalize, that activity.

LIBERTY!

UCFRoadWarrior: "Justice For Trayvon".....where its OK for a family to cry Racism....then make money off their dead kid...enough to take trips to London, etc...


I thought entrepreneurship was applauded by conservatives...huh.

Seriously, though, why are you so concerned about them? Is it because you think they're representative of the African-American community in general? If so, that's racist. If not...why do you give a rat's ass what they do? Religious "leaders" get trips funded by donations all the time (Benny Hinn comes to mind) - you upset about that too?

"They are using the money to continue the legacy of their son," said Michael Hall, a graphic designer and marketing specialist who helped launch the Justice for Trayvon Martin Foundation. The parents created the non-profit in March in response to their son's killing. "They didn't want a situation where people could say they were profiting off the loss of their son."

Hall said Trayvon's parents will become paid employees of the foundation, compensated for their time conducting speaking engagements and other advocacy work. He stressed that the foundation would keep Fulton and her ex-husband, Tracy Martin, at the levels of income they already made - not higher.

Until now, the parents' extensive travel expenses have been paid either by their attorney, Benjamin Crump, or by whoever invited them to the event they attended, he said. They turned all checks they received over to the Miami Foundation, a pre-existing and separate organization that is administering the Justice for Trayvon Martin Foundation's trust fund, and will help establish a board of directors, review expenditures and conduct audits, Hall said.

Where the hell did you get that idea? Ron Paul?

If no one gets a majority of Electoral Votes, Congress picks the president and VP. There is no Constitutional mandate for an election "do-over."

Hell, a state can decide that their legislature can pick the Electors - there's no Constitutional guarantee that we get to vote for president at all, so where would a "low turnout do-over" come from?

The Speaker only takes over if both the sitting President and VP die.

2012-05-14 05:59:54 PM
As I reflect on our 2012 Presidential campaign, I am humbled by the supporters who have worked so hard and sacrificed so much. And I am so proud of what we have accomplished. We will not stop until we have restored what once made America the greatest country in human history.

This campaign fought hard and won electoral success that the talking heads and pundits never thought possible. But, this campaign is also about more than just the 2012 election. It has been part of a quest I began 40 years ago and that so many have joined. It is about the campaign for Liberty, which has taken a tremendous leap forward in this election and will continue to grow stronger in the future until we finally win.

Our campaign will continue to work in the state convention process. We will continue to take leadership positions, win delegates, and carry a strong message to the Republican National Convention that Liberty is the way of the future.

Moving forward, however, we will no longer spend resources campaigning in primaries in states that have not yet voted. Doing so with any hope of success would take many tens of millions of dollars we simply do not have. I encourage all supporters of Liberty to make sure you get to the polls and make your voices heard, particularly in the local, state, and Congressional elections, where so many defenders of Freedom are fighting and need your support.

I hope all supporters of Liberty will remain deeply involved - become delegates, win office, and take leadership positions. I will be right there with you. In the coming days, my campaign leadership will lay out to you our delegate strategy and what you can do to help, so please stay tuned.


For Liberty,


Ron Paul

Bullshiat. Ron Paul has been the Republican's party worst nightmare. He's the ONLY TRUE anti-war candidate running. Your puppet Obama? While he was in his little secret Afghanistan excursion, he signed a pact keeping us there until 2024. He signed the NDAA. He made it a felony to peacefully protest people with secret service protection, something he can give to anyone, at any time, without any notice. Ron Paul has been smeared by the right-wing media for YEARS. Everyone from Fox News all the way to MSNBC has been nothing but blackouts, smears and half-truths even to this day.

Oh that's right, Lyndon Johnson - the guy who pacified everyone by signing the civil rights act, medicare and medicaid (which in turn had a mess exodus of Democrats to join the Republican party) with one hand while bombing hundreds of thousands of men, women and children and bringing tens of thousands of our soldiers home in caskets. We bombed Sudan and Afghanistan under Clinton, Ron Paul warned about the impending terror attacks and wars as a result.

There's no way there's a deal on the table for Rand to get the VP nod. The GOP just doesn't favor his brand of crazy, though they'll take the voters his brand of crazy riles up. Paul Ryan is a more socially acceptable Rand Paul and doesn't have the Paulbot baggage. At MOST Rand will get a slot at the convention (not in prime time).

That said, if they go with anyone but Rubio, they're absolute blithering idiots. Of course, they're absolute blithering idiots, so they might go with Paul Ryan or somebody with some kind of foreign policy chops like Obama did with Biden. Folks in the southwest might decide Rubio looks too much like a Mexican.

The truth is the Democrats have been anti-war since Vietnam. Anti-drug war since the 80's but conservative pressure and the voters scare everyone into the status quo. If you really wanted no wars, no patriot act, you shouldn't have voted for REPUBLICANS in the first place.


The last anti-war president we had was Kennedy. He pushed back and got a bullet in the head.

Farking Eisenhower started Vietnam.

If you want to play that game and start digging for the roots of the whole matter...
Vietnam was a cold war conflict. Lyndon Johnson was the one who sent troops in. The cold war started under Franklin D. Roosevelt's administration with Truman as president, both Democrats. The Korean war was a cold war conflict. Again, started by Truman.

Who dropped the first nuclear bombs on cities? Roosevelt, A Democrat.

If you want to blame anyone for our wars since WWII, you can start giving by giving proper credit to the appropriate people.

You are a tad confused on your history. Try looking some of those facts up and start again.

DreamWeaver: BarkingUnicorn: In the past 8 years, Ron Paul has sponsored 464 bills. One has passed:

"To authorize the Administrator of General Services to convey a parcel of real property in Galveston, Texas, to the Galveston Historical Foundation."

He just can't get shiat done.

What were Obamas legislative accomplishments again?

Also, why does the guy who gets the most bills passed get to be called the winner?

WE LOVE MORE LAWS WE WANT MORE LAWS YAAARRRGGHHH


To have fewer laws, you must be able to pass laws abolishing laws. That's exactly what Paul has tried and failed to do.

Do you really want a president who accomplishes even less than Obama has?

Did anyonhe mention that RO PAUL suspended his campaign, but will continue to seek delegates? Because it is the delegates that matter, and RON PAUL has been picking up a lot of delegates recently in state and county conventions, because Romney delegates are all MEH and RON PAUL delegates are all zealots. Did you think Romney won Iowa? And later did you think it was so close that when recounted that Santorum won? I have news for you, Rachel Maddow told me that RON PAUL ended up with the most Iowa convention delegates once they did their convoluted caucus delegates vote for the county delegates vote for the state RON PAUL delegtates.
