Forgot_my_password_again: why this guy is so popular is a mystery to me.


1. He says what he means instead of trying to fit square talking points into round holes.
2. He's not Romney, Santorum, or Gingrich.
3. He actually wants to follow the constitution, even when it's unpopular.
4. He's not Romney, Santorum, or Gingrich.
5. He presents an actual contrast to Obama.
6. Have I mentioned yet that he's not Romney, Santorum, or Gingrich?

indylaw: Looks like a non-racist racist circlejerk up in here.


The Stormfront Action Alert must have sounded. I wondered why I suddenly heard the faint tones of the 'Horst Wessel Lied'.

washington-babylon: 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.


The fundies would stop voting en masse. Riiiiiiiiiiight.

Kit Fister: Everyone pans Paul as crazy, but he's the only one who has solid points on what he thinks need to be done. Mr. Mitt "I can be that candidate! You want more liberal? I can be more liberal!" Romney, and Mr. Barack "First I was kenyan, then not a kenyan, then a muslim, the not a muslim, then socialist, then not socialist, then the president nobody even really understands or actually listens to" Obama have some level of vacillation on the issues, but not Paul.


I'm intrigued by his ideas, and I'd like to subscribe to his newsletter, which he defended at one point, and then claimed that he never read and it must have been someone else and how the hell could he know who wrote it, stop asking questions!

DreamWeaver: all is not lost. Delegates. delegates. delegates. He will be at the convention.


Where he'll be shoved into a corner and promptly ignored by the Romney campaign and the horse race desperate media. Because if you think that Tampa won't be as tightly choreographed as a Cirque de Soleil production, there's a bridge in Brooklyn made of gold RON PAUL wants to sell you.

Naturally, you'll claim some sort of victory or somesuch, maybe half of a footnote in the official platform. Enough so that you can proudly slap that Mitt Romney bumper sticker on your car, bleating proudly about how much of a not-sheep you are.

manimal2878: Kit Fister: massive inflation of debt,

Has the debt increased under him? I don't know this to be the case. I mean the debt always increases, with interest and all, is it actually attributed to his policies in any real way?


According to the data, the debt has increased more under Obama in 4 years than it did under Dubya in 8 years, and that's including two wars.

A lot of that has to do with his policies towards passing bailouts and stimulus bills, which aside from keeping large, inefficient companies alive and doing little to help the common folk find jobs, leading to trending 7-9% unemployment.

But, I can't blame this solely on Obama: after all, Congress had to approve those bills...


I wasn't familiar with the Fast and Furious scandal, I probably heard about it and thought people were talking about those stupid movies and ignored everything else I heard.

OK. Kennedy sent in military advisors to assess the Vietnam situation. He saw what he was getting into and didn't want to put troops on the ground. The Gulf of Tonkin incident was a false-flag attack that simply never happened. Johnson on the other hand, pushed it through after Kennedy was out of the way. There is no telling what Kennedy would have done if he were still in office, but the issues surrounding his assassination make it very likely he was against it.

LeglessDog: As a Libertarian, myself; I hate to say it . . . but a vote for the Libertarian Presidential candidate is a vote wasted.


In PA, OH, FL, VA, where it might make a difference between the two major parties? Possibly it's a vote wasted.

In CA, TX, or 40 other states? Your presidential vote is already entirely meaningless (election-wise), so a protest vote is arguably the least wasteful vote you can make.

asmodeus224: washington-babylon: Mr_Fabulous: Incog_Neeto: Forgot_my_password_again: why this guy is so popular is a mystery to me.

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.

Know how i know you are a libertarian?


The bold part is absolute fantasy, and has no basis in our Constitution?

"The person having the greatest Number of votes for President, shall be the President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of Electors appointed; and if no person have such majority, then from the persons having the highest numbers not exceeding three on the list of those voted for as President, the House of Representatives shall choose immediately, by ballot, the President. But in choosing the President, the votes shall be taken by states, the representation from each state having one vote; a quorum for this purpose shall consist of a member or members from two-thirds of the states, and a majority of all the states shall be necessary to a choice. And if the House of Representatives shall not choose a President whenever the right of choice shall devolve upon them, before the fourth day of March next following, then the Vice-President shall act as President, as in the case of the death or other constitutional disability of the President."

detritus: TheShavingofOccam123:

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.


Read the Pentagon Papers before you utter such nonsense. Kennedy escalated Vietnam by a factor of twenty.

o5iiawah: Paul's message during the campaign all along has been to secure delegates. There's no reason for him to blow his money on attack ads and robo calls to win meaningless straw polls and popularity contests.

Philip Francis Queeg: Ron Paul's definition of "Liberty" also includes hanging a "White's only" sign on your place of business.

It would also allow for a black restaurant owner to refuse service to a hooded Klansman


So that makes it fair? You have know idea how stupid you sound, do you?

Never mind that thanks to states rights, california is now just as polluted as arizona vis a vis the colorado river. But hey, fark regulation, right. I look forward to the worst of all worlds.

indylaw: Hunter_S_Thompson: And need to buy some carbon credits, because you don't already have enough white guilt.

So climate conservation is primarily a race thing with you? And you're not a racist.


Nope, I'm not. But carbon taxes, or "climate conservation" as you call it, are being sold as a way to feel less guilty about western countries getting to live a first world existence without actually having to do anything to truly conserve. "White guilt" is used to make anyone, white, black, Asian, etc. to feel guilty that they get to live a modern existence. It is, however, also used sometimes specifically against certain races to also make THEM feel guilty about THEIR existence. It's really all a scam, and I choose not to participate in it altogether.

As for Trayvon (since someone else mentioned it), that whole thing should have been a front page story in the local Flori-duh media for a few days, with some updates as court dates and the like came about. If the roles in that situation were reversed, do you really think anyone would have known who Zimmerman was? Be honest, it's OK.

But that makes me a racist, right? Because I want all crimes treated equally, not based on race or motivation? Right. (Oh, and while we're talking about race, Zimmerman is Hispanic, he is not Caucasian. The media narrative fails to mention that, but it's OK, sparking a race war would really be a boost to the economy, wouldn't it?)

I only deny that carbon credits/taxes are going to make one lick of difference other than to make a few people rich. Those are just a way to make people feel guilty into giving away more of their money.

why people support endless wars, the tsa, patriot act, ndaa, sopa, drug wars, erasure of the 4th amendment, etc etc is a mystery to me.

Because it's not a talking point on MSNBC or CNN. People who are so desperate for acceptance from their peers and have to feel better than everyone else (read: most of FARK) can't go against what their years of indoctrination have told them is important. I remember having Anderson (CIA) Cooper shoved down my throat in middle school through a 12-minute brainwashing session every morning. That's why people don't get it, their need to be "smarter and trendier" has been packaged and sold to them since they could begin thinking critically.

Same thing on the right, if FOX isn't covering it, then it just isn't important. Because MSNBC, FOX, and CNN are the only people who know what's really going on, and the rest of us are wild-eyed Alex Jones level kooks.

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.

The media? Doubtful. Me, personally? I already said I don't care what race someone is. A murder is a murder, investigate it, decide who did what and to whom, and place blame.

The fact that everyone tries to determine guilt before a trial in a court of law based on race, what NBC has to say, and hearsay is the problem. If it turns out that Zimmerman was really a Hispanic that hated blacks enough to shoot an unarmed kid who posed no threat to him, then persecute him in the media AFTER he's been convicted.

I am glad that Ron Paul has endorsed Ted Cruz in the Texas Senate race (as has Rand Paul, Sarah Palin, Jim DeMint, Pat Toomey and myself).

I attended last Sunday's Tea Party Express rally, if you want to see what a Ron Paul crowd looks like.

RON PAUL supporters practiced convention takeover in Maine. With some success. So don't be surprised if they attempt a coup.

Hunter_S_Thompson: intelligent comment below: Hunter_S_Thompson: As for Trayvon (since someone else mentioned it), that whole thing should have been a front page story in the local Flori-duh media for a few days, with some updates as court dates and the like came about. If the roles in that situation were reversed, do you really think anyone would have known who Zimmerman was? Be honest, it's OK.

But that makes me a racist, right? Because I want all crimes treated equally, not based on race or motivation? Right. (Oh, and while we're talking about race, Zimmerman is Hispanic, he is not Caucasian. The media narrative fails to mention that, but it's OK, sparking a race war would really be a boost to the economy, wouldn't it?)

I think a lot of the outrage came from the fact that Zimmerman's white father, a former magistrate, may have influenced the decision to stop the investigation. His father admitted to talking to one of the prosecutors the night of the shooting, though he claims that he didn't mention that he was a former magistrate.

Anyway, I'm going back to "Paul is dead" jokes.

The outrage came from the fact that if it was a minority that darkie would have been sitting in a jail cell from the second the police responded while this clown was hailed as a gun owning hero.

Hunter_S_Thompson: white guilt


The part that always amuses me the most is when the Stormfronters don't realize they're not even half as clever as they think they are.

As wimpy as Paul's campaign was, it was still more effective and pleasant than OWS.

Asking Ron Paul about the economy is like asking Paul Krugman to deliver a baby.
