high on methamphetamines, killed her two kids, two others, shot her husband, and then killed herself? Yes, folks, Ron Paul thinks it would be harmless to legalize drugs in this country. Along with ideas such as this regarding domestic policy come even more disturbing views on foreign policy, like the naive idea that Iran is no threat to us and we shouldn't so much as raise an eyebrow regarding their plans to develop nuclear weapons.
For years he has snuggled up to crazy conspiracy theorists like Alex Jones and been responsible for numerous anti-semitic and racist articles throughout the 80's and 90's in his newsletter. Apparently Paul has given an excuse to the latter by stating that he never read what was printed in his newsletters. Whether he did or not, the newsletters were titled, "Ron Paul's Freedom Report," "Ron Paul's Survival Report," "Ron Paul's Political Report," and "Ron Paul's Investment Newsletter," and the majority of the articles were written in the first person. I come from a land of common sense and logic where, if I choose to put my name on a newsletter, article, or periodical of any type, that means I either wrote it myself or endorse it wholeheartedly as my viewpoint. I find it impossible to believe that the American voter has accepted this lame excuse from Mr. Paul...oh wait...no I'm actually not, as the American voter accepted a lot bogus excuses from another candidate regarding the "strange bedfellows" he was known to be friends with just four years ago. Look where that got us!! All of this information was recently brought to light, AGAIN, by an article written by James Kirchick for the Weekly Standard . Here is a short excerpt:
“Order was only restored in L.A. when it came time for the blacks to pick up their welfare checks,” read a typical article from the June 1992 “Special Issue on Racial Terrorism,” a supplement to the Ron Paul Political Report. Racial apocalypse was the most persistent theme of the newsletters; a 1990 issue warned of “The Coming Race War,” and an article the following year about disturbances in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington, D.C., was entitled “Animals Take Over the D.C. Zoo.” Paul alleged that Martin Luther King Jr., “the world-class philanderer who beat up his paramours,” had also “seduced underage girls and boys.” The man who would later proclaim King a “hero” attacked Ronald Reagan for signing legislation creating the federal holiday in his name, complaining, “We can thank him for our annual Hate Whitey Day.”
It is incredibly disturbing that this nutjob is being allowed to run for President as a Republican. It is far more disturbing that he is coming in 2nd or 3rd in the primaries. This man is clearly a fringe lunatic who's cultlike following seems to be, at the least, incredibly naive. If you make the mistake of attempting to debate a "Paulbot" you are sure to learn one thing. Paulbots accept everything uttered by their messiah, Ron Paul, without question. If you ask them to reference facts to back up their claims, they will reference something Ron Paul said, or depending on their level of schizophrenia, will show youtube videos from one of Alex Jones many fear-injected websites of madness, like Infowars.
My mother used to say, "There are more of them walking around than there are locked up." As I grow older, I am seeing that not only was my mother correct, but the ratio of "walking around" to "locked up" has now grown to the point that a complete lunatic can pull 20% of the popular vote in the Republican Party. Be afraid folks!! Be very afraid!!
