Because they want to rule instead of govern.
In one of the recent debates Ron Paul was asked whether he had any ‘electability’…and with absolute ease responded by posing the question–
‘Why should the republican party not be for the Constitution, small government , fiscal stability, and be for individual liberty?‘
And in that sentence, Ron Paul laid bare the willing participation of the establishment republicans in activities that are anti-American, contradict their sworn oath of office, and aid in undermining the Constitution. The extent to which the establishment republicans are out of touch with we the people and the Constitution is shown by the shame of both houses of Congress enthusiastically endorsing the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and its indefinite detention of American Citizens during ‘declared wars’ like the war on drugs or war on terror…
While the media quibbles over Romney versus Gingrich, the Occupy movement, and other diversions, pResident Obama continues to undermine law and order, dismantling the US Constitution piece by piece. When public officials seek to limit freedom, it can be concluded that these officials want to rule instead of govern. (eMphasis added)
And therein lies the whole scam of ‘the party system‘ for both establishment democrats and republicans. Under the influence of artificial, un-granted power, money, fortune & fame, they’ll let everything go….just like they did in the 60’s and 70’s, and they transformed themselves into politicians so that they now think they are the law…and indeed they do hold every position of power of the U.S. Government. But they’re busted once and for all.
Who can forget this statement of Mayer Amschel Bauer Rothschild:
“Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes it’s laws”
What Dr. Paul has revealed is that they have full control over the money, and it doesn’t matter who is elected…they are in the game for something else and that’s not our Constitution or us. Isn’t this precisely the right thing the general public needs to hear right now? The only candidate who talks about the constitution, even mentions it in his stump speech…is Ron Paul. Every other republican candidate is an establishment candidate.
The regular republicans, independents, even some democrats, AKA AMERICANS, are for the Constitution. Many of us are more informed than others, and it is obvious that Ron Paul is on the right track. For others, not so much. The false media hype up or mislead on subjects of critical importance to Americans, for example
- Minimizing what should be a serious discussion of radical Islam/sharia by labeling Paul’s constitutionally-based non-intervention policy’ instead ‘isolationist foreign policy’;
- Deliberately deceiving the pubic on Paul’s ‘s position on helping our friends and a strong defense by calling it ‘refusal to support Israel’ and ‘gutting the military’;
- Misleading people on Dr. Paul’s position on the Tenth Amendment and legalization of drugs by scaring people on ‘legalize marijuana’ , ‘legalize heroin’, forgetting to tell people that the government itself is sponsoring these programs…e.g., drugs, guns, money and murder in the American southwest.
- Painting Ron Paul as a one-dimensional candidate who is timid, isolationist, and weak on foreign affairs, as too focused on money.
By trying to label and isolate everything about Ron Paul, they show more about themselves and what they are doing…they accuse another of what they themselves could be accused of. How often do they pull out the ‘protect the troops’ mantra and use it as a ruse to pass even more outrageous spending irrelevant to force protection or national defense?
Ron Paul is right to point out the ‘blowback’ of our own foreign policy run amok and its meddling in other countries. Think about Newt’s recent “bombastic” statement that “Palestinians are not real people”–how helpful is that Mr. smarty-pants? And they call Ron Paul ‘anti-Israel’? In the video below you will see John McCain accuse a ‘isolationist’ policy of the United States as causing World War II. Does John McCain even know American history?

The purpose of this thread is to identify and defeat all of the concerns and mis-truths about Ron Paul, real or imagined, and to place in this thread the arguments countering these ideas. Where there are still areas unclear, let’s focus the question so that an answer can be found.
For example, if Ron Paul is ‘weak’ on foreign policy, identify his strong and weak points AND ask the question, who would complement Ron Paul in those areas…i.e., who is his cabinet, who is his Vice President, who is his defense secretary? Let’s give Dr. Paul a helping hand.
If you still think someone is better, then make the case for him/her here, contrasting their positions to Ron Paul’s.
