Ron Paul in a recent campaign ad, after attacking Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, and Newt Gingrich as “three men, one vision: more big government, more mandates, less freedom.”

    So the truth finally comes out. He’s tried to pass himself off as a libertarian for years, and yet he’s not even running under the libertarian banner. He is what he is – a garden variety rightwing republican. There’s no other way he could continue to prevail in Texas as an elected legislator for nigh on to 30 years.

    His states rights isolationism is nothing new either………except that he’s even more backward than his republican competitors.

    He is a Christian and a gynocologist. No surprise that his personal view would be pro life. Everyone has the right to personal morality, right? He is against Federal gov’t regulations on such a personal matter, and for leaving it up to the states. That is not ‘right wing’ is it? One thing he is not, and why he not popular with his leadership, is a ‘garden variety republican’. Why people like yourself seem to despise him ‘backward’, ‘pass himself off’, ‘isolationist’ is what I don’t get. He is the peace candidate after all. Don’t you think that reflects on his personality?

    Finally come out lol… you mean you finally read something which you can use to make bold accusations based off of what little you know about the candidate.

    Be an American; vote for the Hon. Dr. Ron Paul. End the Federal Reserve, IRS, and corrupt government. Stop the unnecessary wars!

    Thomas Jefferson (1743 – 1826):

    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.

    Sincerely, Joseph C. Carbone III

    @persiflage I’ve got $20 that says you’re a baby boomer. “The truth comes out…”. What do you know about truth? Do your country a favor and shoot yourself in the face.

  • persiflage

    LeoBao – so you’re the typical Ron Paul supporter? A high school drop-out with a closet full of guns………$20 says you’re not a baby boomer – probably haven’t held down a regular job in years.

    Have another drink, boyo……….try not to hurt yourself.

    ‘He is the peace candidate after all. Don’t you think that reflects on his personality?’

    He’s not a ‘peace’ candidate – he likes to call himself a non-intervenionist, but he’s really an old school isolationist. He’s said some pretty stupid things in that context:

    1) the USA shouldn’t have intervened in WWII to help out Europe and England 2) Iran is entitled to it’s own nuclear weapons 3)all recreational drugs should be legal (but they mostly come from foreign countries) – and his long-held affiliation with the John Birch Society shouldn’t be ignored either…….a racist, antisemitic organization that even a hardcore righwinger like Barry Goldwater shunned like the plague.

    I think Ron Paul pretty much shot his wad with this campaign – the guy will be over 80 soon, so maybe retirement will become a real option. Wonder if he’s drawing social security and enrolled in Medicare??

    The fact that he’s been a total failure as a legislator during a career spanning over 25 years is not cause for celebration – it’s an indication of very bad ideas that have zero support. And without that, how does anything get done in Washington?

    Devotion to Ron Paul is misplaced, and that’s about the best that can be said for it.

    Why does he want to expand the government to be in every woman’s uterus?

    Pro-life? Not remotely. He has made it clear that he doesn’t want to spend money to help those in need.

    You have no idea what you are talking about or else you would have elaborated on the bs that you just mentioned.

    I would vote for Ron Paul in a second if he was Pro-Choice. I would vote for him if he came out and said personally he is Pro-Life but as an American he doesn’t have the right to impose his personal beliefs on other Americans as to how many children they choose to raise. Which is the most personal of choices and not something anyone else should have a say in. Considering how many natural abortions happen every day it isn’t like outlawing the procedure is going to stop it from happening.

    The abortion issue is a grey area depending on many factors. He could also as a Doctor say there are many effective and preventative measures available to prevent the need of having to make such a difficult choice of abortion.
