Thoughts on Our Constitutional Republic
Here’s the ‘virtual President’ on taxes.
Doesn’t anyone get that the Sixteenth Amendment was never ratified?
What Congressman Dr. Ron Paul describes is the hijacking of the American government ever since the FED was formed in 1913…and its current manifestation in Congressional failure, government behavior, and loss of liberty. Those of us who have studied our history know this hijacking began a long time ago. A ‘hijacking’ implies total control…our government is no longer the one we created.
In response to Congressman Paul’s statement, and in the light of the obvious hijack of our election system Alex Jones hosted Edwin Viera and Porter Stansbury..found in Episode 10 for 11/15/2012. Boith called for Ron Paul and state leaders to stand up to the counterfeit FED, which has hijacked our government (h/t Jan, Tenacity), and secede from the New World Order. The broadcast is long and Viera comes in at about 45 minutes. The show builds heavily on Ron Paul’s video above.
Does this sound like a plan you can get behind, or combine with other efforts? Please share a link with promising strategies!
This year, Thanksgiving day also falls on the Biblical Sabbath…signaled with the sign of the first sliver of the moon last Thursday. It is a day of rest, prayer, and Thanksgiving for all our Creator has bestowed upon us, and to remember the work done in creation of the earth, the stars in the sky, and the creation of man from the clay of the earth, molded in His image, the breath of life infused from God.
I am grateful for all the learning and the exposure we have accomplished of the powers that wish our Nation and our people harm. And for the other things we have learned about the political parties–that they are one party truly; that the USA is a corporation–which is using our money to pay their debts; the fraudulent bankers and fractional banking system; the lying media who have proven themselves to be state-controlled enemies of the people. We know that none of them win elections–they steal them. We know who the enemy is and know they will not prevail…for the wage of sin is death.
And I am grateful to be an American, and to be bestowed with the creative American spirit and that essential creativity given to mankind through our Creator. The socialists, islamists, jihadists, the bankers, the left adrift in a sea of hatred, the new world order…they all forgot about that. Might will never make right, and like David & Goliath, the stones will hit their mark.
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. TR, 1910
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day, stay close to the values that count.
“Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws.”
This sad, funny, and true video turned on the light as to who the real terrorists are in the United States.
Our country was founded on a gold standard, a sound money system that rejected ‘paper’ or ‘bank notes’ as nothing more than tricks played upon people to fleece them of their money and turn them into slaves. Kennedy was assassinated for taking this on. After Nixon destroyed the gold standard they impeached him anyway, covering the demise of gold with Nixon’s ‘crimes’.
When the FBI and DHS call those of us TERRORISTS who are interested in returning to the gold standard and proposing a return to sound money, who in fact does that benefit? It benefits the FED, the fiat currency that replaced our sound money system with endless debt in 1913. The FED–and its Nazi agents— has created wars, depressions, implemented political assassinations, created debt, destabilized nations and now threatens World War III if the people even dare to dream of our Constitution and its founding principles.
One must understand that the stakes are so high in this election, that the ONLY person standing for America besides her real patriots is Dr. Ron Paul. Dr. Paul is risking his life to save our country, make no mistake about that. The rest of the so called republicans and conservatives won’t dare touch the money issue–they are ignorant, afraid, and complicit.
Oh the so-called ‘conservatives’, supposedly calling for smaller government, wring their hands over Paul’s ‘foreign policy’…preferring to stay afraid in the dark and never turn on the light. Did they ever hear of Rothchilds statement describing this planned financial ambush in 1838?
“Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws.”
Our very own Tenacity sums it up nicely in this article:
Everyone wants to know how we can solve the dilemma we find ourselves in. Our rights are disappearing quickly and the momentum of big government seems insurmountable. The banking powers have been concentrated for so long that every major institution in our society is now under the control of a few large bank owners. I am convinced that the solution is to break the grip of the Federal Reserve and the international bankers. Sound money legislation at the State level could provide the necessary means to restore proprietary ownership of our money to the People and allow our local communities to break free of the credit based banking system that currently enslaves us.
So the FBI turned on the light, admittedly keystone cops, letting us know precisely what the problem is in America right now: the people want a return to our Constitution, and that means sound money. Whether we can articulate it or not, this is at the heart of our hunger for truth, our Country, our Constitution, and an end to the endless wars.
The idiotic OWS movement is nothing but ‘mockingbird‘ poop being thrown in our faces. Mocking us by pretending to create a class division among the perceived 1% and the 99%.
Prominent entrepreneur, inventor and publisher, Alfred Lawson wrote the following as part of a speech published in The Benefactor during the 1930s: “My job now is to show how a little bunch of alien financiers are stealing America; how they are going to enslave the American people and how illiteracy will be reestablished so that the children of these swindlers can drive American children to work like beasts in the field.
Did you know that 98% of the black population was literate in the late 1930s? What about now? Look at the high schoolers out there right now, do they know how to read? How about math? Yet they all know about ‘alternative life styles’ in first grade!
Ron Paul has it right. Watch this and learn.
Don’t play the game of choosing who is more conservative between Sick Rantorum, Newt Gingrich, or Mitt Romney. They are all part of this scam.
America would be in better shape if we had more statesmen discussing the issues in light of constitutional argument and not through political labels used to dumb-down the thought process of choosing a candidate.~Timothy N. Baldwin, J.D.
The virulence with which the so-called ‘Patriots’, ‘Conservatives’, and ‘Constitutionlists’ dismiss Ron Paul is a fine measure of their utter lack of knowledge of and respect for the Constitution, liberty, and history; it is also an indicator of their moral collapse and intellectual bankruptcy. Unable to mount any critique Ron Paul’s positions, his record, or ideas, they search for the false promise of an idea that Romney, Gingrich, Santorum, Perry, or Huntsman could ‘beat’ the disaster known as Obama/Soetoro–why vote for any of them when their ideas are just like Obama’s? Do you think any of these ridiculous RINOs would, if elected, eliminate Obamacare, stop the spending, return power to the states, or make Congress follow their oath of office? Do you think any of them would not pardon Obama for his crimes against Americans and crimes against humanity for using our weapons to overthrow governments that are of no threat to the United States?
I was stunned when listening to a blog talk radio show which claims to be about the constitution to hear the speakers totally eviscerate the Constitution’s provisions on who is to declare war…“drkate says that the Constitution says only Congress can declare war–that is absolutely wrong!!!” So I had to ask them if they thought Libya, Egypt, Iraq, Vietnam, and Granada, and El Salvador actions were ‘cool’ with them.
Equally stunning is the absolute silence when mentioning the reality of the Federal Reserve and the related Sixteenth and Seventeenth Amendments; while agreeing an audit of the federal reserve is necessary, and that both amendments were unconstitutional–there is no application of that constitutional thinking to the selection of candidates for the White House. Stating that there was no difference between the republicans and democrats brought jeering responses like “that sounds like a Ron Paul line”. Who are these people who claim to love America?
It is hard work to right the ship of state known as America, and to finally and permanently eliminate the forces that want to destroy us. It is outside of most people’s comfort zone, and when faced squarely with themselves, people do not want to admit they have been duped or that their own studies tell them that a one Dr. Ron Paul has been right all along. So they resort to name-calling and outright lies, all the while claiming to be Patriots…even leading so-called Patriot’s organizations.
Here’s an answer:
(Posted with permission)
J.B. William’s article attacking Ron Paul, released on December 30, 2011 on NewsWithViews.com, perhaps deserves (I use the word loosely) a response. Williams’ assumes a lot and qualifies virtually nothing. He takes for granted the meaning and understanding of words like “conservative” and “liberal” and uses them to pigeon hole politics and pit people against Ron Paul. It is this kind of miniscule attention to detail that spreads misinformation and disinformation masqueraded as “fact.”
Let us consider Williams’ attacks on Ron Paul in order, and I will offer a critique for the sake of integrity in journalism and truth in politics.
1. Williams says, “Ron Paul remains totally MIA (Missing In Action) on Obama’s Article II ineligibility, which disqualifies Obama for office and every member of congress, including Ron Paul!”
This is a useless tool against Ron Paul and benefits no voters. There is not one Republican candidate taking on this issue. One has to ask, what difference does it make that Ron Paul is not leading the charge in this regard? If no one is taking on this issue as a part of their campaign, then everyone’s score is “zero to zero.” Williams’ use of “fact” is a tongue-in-cheek, sarcastic jab at Ron Paul as a “constitutionalist.” But this jab can be made universally to all the candidates; thus, this information is useless and irrelevant to persuade the voters and distinguish the candidates.
2. Williams says, “Mr. Constitution would know the primary function of the Federal Government is to protect and defend the United States against ALL enemies, foreign and domestic. – To do that in a 21st Century world, you better have one hell of a standing Military, which Mr. Constitution also opposes.”
Williams obviously mocks Ron Paul as “Mr. Constitution.” Williams steps outside of the objective and enters into the subjective and emotional. Williams’ credibility as an objective journalist diminishes significantly. We need less emotion in politics and more statesmanship. This mockery fails in that attempt.
As to Paul’s stance on defending the United States (while also supporting and defending the United States Constitution), Williams’ offers no support of his insinuation that Paul will fail at protecting the United States, and he offers no references as to what Paul’s plan is for the military and our entanglement in foreign affairs.
It is difficult to take journalism like this seriously when there is not one reference to a reliable source about Paul’s plan. Nor does Williams generate a comparative analysis of Paul’s plan versus the other candidate’s plan and how those plans conform to the constitution and to good policy as it relates to all of the factors affecting America right now (i.e. depressed economy, over-taxation, federal bureaucracies, unemployment, etc.). It amounts to, “ok, children, the sky is green because I say it’s green,” tautology.
3. Williams says, “Obama likes running unopposed. He has won every political race by eliminating his opponents, leaving him unopposed in the general election.”
What Obama likes has nothing to do with Ron Paul’s positions and his viability as an opponent.
4. William says, “Hillary Clinton was a lock for the DNC nomination in the 2008 primaries. Then the nobody from nowhere with a blank résumé and no birth certificate, stole the show. In the end analysis, the left always marches forward in lockstep, despite their many internal disputes. But the political right is more divided and scattered than ever in U.S. history, and they are no match for the unified international left that has already eliminated any real opposition for Obama in 2012.”
Williams makes an observation (“the political right is more divided and scattered than ever in U.S. history”) that offers a reality check about our political condition. Perhaps the reason for this so-called division is because the Democrat-Republican monopoly is finally starting to crumble and the people are getting sick of the same ol’ politics as usual.
Indeed, competition of ideas and real policy critique are resulting because of people like Ron Paul who are willing to think and act independently of political party. The spirit of independence was seen as a good thing in America, and political parties were seen as a potential hazard to that independence of thought. Attacking Ron Paul on these “divisive” grounds does little to convince the American who sees a problem with Democrat-Republican elitism corrupting what we want in leaders.
To Williams, marching in “lockstep” with the political party of choice is more important than one’s responsibility to the Supreme Law of the Land. Yet, for many people, Ron Paul’s breakup of the party monopoly is a long-awaited answer to prayer.
5. Williams says, “Ron Paul will not rule out a third-party run.”
So what? This has nothing to do with Ron Paul’s positions as a constitution-protector and nothing to do with his current candidacy as a Republican. Williams does not develop this thought at all but just throws it out there and presumably hopes that it will stick on the wall for people to draw their own (sinister) conclusions.
6. Williams says, “The Ron Paul campaign is built on a foundation of social liberals, chronic anti-war misfits, modern day peaceniks seeking legalized drugs, atheists, and Democrats and Independents with libertarian leanings. Nowhere in there is ‘conservatives…’ who oppose Paul as much as they oppose Obama. If Ron Paul were a constitutionalist, he would attract the conservative vote.”
Williams demonstrates the epitome of prejudice and incredibility on a political level. The tone of his statement rings of personal offense. Williams’ mis- and over-characterization of Ron Paul’s “foundation” should warn any person (who cares about logical argument) reading his article to be cautious about his premises and conclusions.
Williams uses only key-word titles as “proof” of his arguments against Ron Paul; terms like, “liberal,” “misfits,” “peaceniks,” “atheists,” “conservatives.” Perhaps Williams should have included a glossary of terms in his article, because these words have very little relationship in understanding and applying the Supreme Law of the Land.
America would be in better shape if we had more statesmen discussing the issues in light of constitutional argument and not through political labels used to dumb-down the thought process of choosing a candidate. Williams’ argument using this description amounts to a fifteen second commercial of a candidate explaining why you should “vote for me: I’m a conservative republican!”
And by induction of Williams’ random comments, the word “conservative” only includes those who would use the federal government to force “morality” on the people even though the U.S. Constitution leaves the matters of morality, health, property, contracts, marriage, etc., to the States. Williams’ attack on Ron Paul in this regard is as much an attack on the United States Constitution.
7. William says, “Ron Paul is at odds with conservatives on numerous key issues.
1. Paul supports same-sex marriage
2. Paul opposes the death penalty for violent criminals
3. Paul opposes mandatory sentencing for three-time losers
4. Paul supports legalizing illicit drugs
5. Paul opposes firm enforcement of immigration laws
6. Paul opposes free trade
7. Paul opposes a strong U.S. Military and National Defense
8. Paul opposes foreign diplomacy and prefers isolationism
9. Paul opposes stricter limits on criminal campaign finance
10. Paul opposes the Patriot Act, but also insists on letting terrorist live amongst us
11. Paul supported the arbitrary withdrawal from Iraq that resulted in deadly terror attacks hours later.”
Williams presupposes an “opposition” between Ron Paul and “conservatives”, even though he does not define the terms he uses repeatedly to try to prove Ron Paul is not “conservative.” And should Williams decide to define the term “conservative,” it would do America well to compare the term “conservative” with the original textualism and intention of the constitution.
When the President swears the oath of office, it is to protect the constitution, not someone’s subjective understanding of “conservative” or “liberal.” Are we not past the years when these terms are used as a basis for any understanding deeper than a Hallmark card?
Williams’ analogy of what Paul “supports” and “opposes” reminds me of the arguments made against the ratification of the United States Constitution. The argument went like this, “since the constitution specifically named items outside the jurisdiction of Congress to regulate (i.e. Bill of Rights), then all items not included in that list are subject to federal control.” That is, since item A through E was specifically excluded from their jurisdiction, the remaining items F through Z are included by implication. The Federalist Paper writers, of course, smashed that argument.
Williams’ illogical argument is similar against Ron Paul: since Paul will not use the federal government to create and enforce laws regarding marriage, drugs, and other domestic issues, he therefore supports gay-marriage, high crimes, stoned druggies, etc. If one is a supporter of the constitution, this should excite us—putting power back where it belongs, allowing the democratic process to reflect the will of the people in a more localized, controlled manner.
In reality, Ron Paul’s position mirrors what the Federalist Paper writers said concerning the powers to regulate the general welfare of the people: the States will retain “a very extensive portion of active sovereignty…[whose powers] are numerous and indefinite”; and the “powers delegated…to the federal government are few and defined” (James Madison, Federalist Paper 45). Apparently, to Williams, this is not acceptable.
Additionally, Williams mischaracterizes Ron Paul’s positions. Williams references no credible sources and gives the reader nothing to hang his hat on. He expects people to rely on his word alone. I would hope that people reading Williams’ article would do their own homework and find that his descriptions are inaccurate and distorting at best.
7. Williams says, “As a result, he cannot muster the conservative vote in November 2012, without which, he cannot defeat Barack Obama.”
This statement is based upon Williams’ own definition of “conservative,” whatever that is supposed to mean. Undoubtedly, these terms “conservative” and “liberal,” which describe people in a one-dimensional image, are not accurate to describe the true multi-dimensional makeup of America. Williams ignores the nationally-known cases where people see Ron Paul as the only true conservative. The pigeon-holing simply will not work in 2012. America needs more substance. Williams’ conclusion lacks any analysis based upon any facts.
8. Williams says, “Most of Paul’s ‘social conservative’ congressional votes are actually Tenth Amendment votes, which sidestep the actual issue at hand and redirect the discussion to states right. While conservatives are strong on Tenth Amendment states right, they are also strong on founding principles and values grounded in the moral laws of nature, at the foundation of our Constitutional Representative Republic. Paul is actually a liberal leaning populist candidate, rather than a Jeffersonian libertarian.”
I seriously question Williams’ understanding of or appreciation for the U.S. Constitution at this point. Williams tries to make Paul appear antithetical to the “founding principles and values grounded in the moral laws of nature…of our Constitutional Representative Republic”; however, it was that very generation that left matters of morality, police power, and domestic regulation to the States—the same matters Ron Paul says are the States to govern.
Williams also attempts to separate Paul’s political ideology from Thomas Jefferson’s. He does so in the attempt to disenfranchise those who would support Paul for his support of States’ rights. Yet, Williams does nothing to support his statement.
To Williams, it is not enough that the President of the United States would leave these matters to the States to regulate, as the constitution requires; he would rather use the President to enforce laws of morality even though that exercise of unconstitutional power goes against the “principles and values [which founded] our Constitutional Representative Republic.” Williams is more concerned about enforcing (federal) laws he likes as a “social conservative” than getting the country on the right track of constitutional governance.
Williams’ logic and conclusions are irreconcilable.
9. Williams says, “He has little in common with American conservatives and that presents a serious problem for him when conservative voters are looking to reverse course in America. Paul has been MIA on far too many constitutional issues to call himself a constitutionalist with a straight face.”
How Williams can make such a broad statement as to claim to know the characteristics of the “common American conservative” demonstrates a less-than-statesman approach. Williams displays the “he is not on our team” fallacy. Furthermore, Williams fails to acknowledge the Americans who would not place themselves into the two small pigeon holes used to control political outcomes.
10. Williams says, “Beyond lower taxes and less government, he has literally nothing in common with conservatives and even his smaller government leanings can’t work in a socially and morally bankrupt society.”
Within this statement Williams demonstrates Neo-Con ideology, wittingly or not. Williams says that Paul’s “smaller government leanings can’t work in a socially and morally bankrupt society.” This should warn every reader of a dangerous political philosophy.
Williams says that since “America is socially and morally bankrupt,” the federal government must be big and strong enough to police the United States because without it, America would decay into anarchy and chaos.
Williams’ suggested constitutional model was rejected in 1787 at the constitutional convention and follows the argument advanced by advocates of a monarchy: that is, people of large populations are incapable of adequately governing themselves and require an executive to rule over every aspect of their lives.
It is for this reason that Ron Paul is doing so well throughout the country. Americans want a President who is willing to put power back into the hands of the people. It is called self-government.
11. Williams says, “Then we have the issue of white supremacists and anti-Semites in his past. Remember, Obama must run unopposed… and the U.S. press will tear Paul from limb to limb long before next November.”
Again, William acts as a “drive-by” media and throws out a loaded statement with no evidence or credible references to support his statement.
12. Williams’ says, “Voters who grasp the reality that the nation is on the brink of total collapse and the world is on the verge of WWIII, are looking for who can defeat Obama and who might have the backbone to protect the nation from eminent danger on several fronts. I’m not sure such a candidate exists in the 2012 election, but I am certain that Ron Paul isn’t it. Facts don’t have any friends, but so far, Paul fans don’t seem too impressed by facts. Paul is unqualified for the job he seeks on this single issue alone! His anti-Semitism and poor-pitiful misunderstood jihadists, blame America first and often rhetoric should be enough to end his campaign… but do the facts matter anymore?”
Williams recognizes that the United States is in serious trouble, but he ironically fails to recognize that much of our troubles derive from a corrupted monetary system and the only candidate calling this fact out is Ron Paul. If there is a premier problem, it is in the area of economics and finance—a fruit of a bitter root most politicians are not willing to address.
Above all, Ron Paul is a proven statesman in this area and has identified the root of the counterfeiters and the evils within economic and financial institutions of the United States and World banks. Paul knows what it will take to rid us of these wrongs and to put America back on the path of social and financial-economic prosperity. It will take Ron Paul as President and governors in the States who recognize these matters to restore America to where it should and must be for a successful future.
If Williams does not recognize the seriousness of our monetary problems and Ron Paul’s obvious and fitting statesmanship and accuracy in this area, then it is no wonder he does not like Ron Paul.
Williams needs to know that Ron Paul only started what will continue until remedy is made in the matters of corrupted economics and finance, unjust foreign entanglement, and unconstitutional governance. Talk all you want about “social conservatism” and “military strength,” the United States will not be able to adequately solve and resolve any of major problems on any level without an economy to fund it.
Upon Williams’ conclusion, he makes a reference to “facts,” yet he barely refers to one fact in his entire article, which is based upon presumptions, presuppositions, mischaracterizations, and generalizations—without even a hyperlink to direct the reader to learn more about what Ron Paul would do as President.
I ask Williams the same question he asks, “do the facts matter anymore?,” with an additional question, “does the United States Constitution matter anymore?”

And, what if the powers that be are lying to you about Ron Paul?
In addition to the more than 250 comments on the last post, a collection of articles, videos, media fumbles, endorsements, and presidential candidates’ statements have reaffirmed that the establishment bosses of the GOP are terrified of Ron Paul. By authentically focusing ideas rooted in the constitution and conservatism, Paul shines a light on the depth to which his opponents are not constitutional conservatives.
The political elite’s charade, the New World Order’s game, all the puppetry is on parade,
The GOP bosses are so afraid that they have actively begun to threaten the American people:
This inappropriate Bachman statement caught my eye because it seemed ‘programmed’ from daddy Bush, who recently publicly endorsed Romney, and is the sure sign of the globalist, NWO, GOP elite plan to maintain the status quo. The political elite with their media lap dogs are in full gear staging ‘actions’ and sounding tough on ‘the system‘. And my only hope is that if Ron Paul wins, the rinos revolt and resign from congress in protest… :razz:
The endorsement of Romney by GHW Bush (aka George Shertoff) was expected, and is most worrisome at the same time. We all knew that the stooge Karl Rove shilled for Obama, beat up Palin, and is now strongly telling us all that Romney is the nominee. So GHW Bush confirms that Romney is the NWO choice, and
Bachman Bush essentially tells Americans that a nuclear bomb will be set off in an American city if you don’t vote for Romney. Or, if you even try to defeat Obama.
Birds of a Feather exposed the absolute commonality of Bush I, Clinton(s), Bush II, and Obama in adhering to, promoting, pouring money into, and facilitating the New World Order a treasonous racket. Assassination is a hallmark of the Bush-Clinton-Obama NWO cabal, and mass destruction of the American economy, its defenses, manufacturing, and energy industries has been used to accomplish these goals. Usurpation of the presidency of the U.S. was a crown achievement for it represented the complete purchase of the government. Creating chaos on the streets of America just like in the Middle East is another favorite tool of the de-stabilizers.
Bush I’s endorsement of Romney is the first sign of how serious they are in stopping Ron Paul. And remember that it is really not Ron Paul–it is what he is talking about and symbolizes–America, the Constitution, the rule of law, and the return to sound money.
Returning to our national defense, returning to our constitutional sense.
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
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?
(video h/t Troy)
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.
Mike Huckabee sponsored an excellent two-hour Presidential forum on December 3, 2011, where the republican candidates had a great opportunity to speak their minds on questions posed by several of the states’ Attorneys General. The same questions were asked of all the candidates. There are 7 parts to this video which can be found here.
Ron Paul’s interview is here:
To be frank, I was a little disappointed that Dr. Paul missed an opportunity to really show how much he knows about the Constitution and its amendments. In particular, he was given an opportunity to talk about the “worst amendment”…and he mentions Prohibition…not the Sixteenth or Seventeenth Amendments, for example, which I know he has mentioned as unconstitutional at other times.
I realize no ‘debate’ offers the whole view of the man, but I have a few questions as to missed opportunities.
Was this strategy? An oversight? An agreement not to mention it?
How could Ron Paul improve on his ability to speak the Constitution to Americans, not just his supporters?
What do you think were his best moments, and, can you find a video that answers the questions above?
