This is just another bit of evidence in a long volume of reasons to support my strong contention that Ron Paul IS NOT a guy I want ANYWHERE NEAR the Oval Office.
If you are known by the company you keep, then Ron Paul will be known as an anti-war NeoLeft/hate America/Jews are evil Conspiracist.
As a member of moveon.org, I received today an invitation to create an anti-war rally on August 28th. They will be doing rallies all across the nation on that day. We should invade this event. During the rally, bring anti-war stickers, signs, and flags — and also Ron Paul signs. Introduce moveon members to Ron Paul, the REAL anti-war candidate!
This simply confirms what I’ve been seeing for weeks while perusing the cesspool of Stalinist web threads like the Daily Kos, the Democrat Underground, it is no surprise to read that many of these moveon.org Leftists are supporting Ron Paul for the sole purpose of creating a ‘spoiler’ for the GOP on the level of Ross Perot.
They think that if they create enough support for RP, that if he does not get the nomination – he will bolt from the GOP and run for prez as a Libertarian (which he is, and has been) – thus ensuring a Hillary win.
Many Democrat policy-wonks are driving the push for a Ron Paul spoiler for the GOP due his stance on the Iraq war – and nothing else. Even the recent ABC C-Span debate had former Clinton Strategist George Stephanopolous asking Ron Paul questions pertaining to the war and nothing regarding domestic issues.
What is also interesting, is that on many of the boards I read – there is little difference in the rhetoric and verbage of the anti-war Left and that of Ron Paul, and his supporters, who have openly admitted that the prime reason they like him, is because of his ‘Get out of Iraq and A’stan Now!’ stance.
I think I heard Ron Paul use the term ‘neocon’ more often in the debate a few weeks ago than Michael Moore did in the junket for his “Sicko” movie.
Ron Paul appeals to the masses of those who are disaffected by D.C. and government in general – this includes Social Conservatives, Socialists and Anarchists who each have their own reasons for disliking the government. His broader appeal is to those who hate big corporations, Capitalism and the zany conspiracist zeitgeists of those who think American corporations are evil or trying to create a one world government that they control – hence ‘neocons’. On that level, Paul has garnered the ears and tongues of the rabid Socialsists, Marxists and other kook nutjobs that now dominate the internet blogosphere.
There is not one conspiracy nutcase I’ve encountered that isn’t supporting either the Demcorats/Socialists or Ron Paul. The fact there is no coverage whatsoever of his domestic positions in regards to big government is galvanizing even ardent big government Communists to support him.
The truth is, this is not Ron Paul’s first attempt to get elected to the presidency. He desires power as much as any other politician – and he also knows that none of his policies have any chance of clearing the Congress, to which he will be treated as a hostile by both parties. He will have to govern as a dictator by E.O. Notwithstanding his completely ignorant and juvenile take and stance on global Jihadists and how Isolationism and Appeasement is the answer to any threat.
While Mr. Paul’s domestic positions and the Constitution are admirable and supportable – his position on this assymetric religious enemy at war with us and the world is what condemns his campaign in the eyes of Conservatives, and endears him to the Stalinist Left – who would fight him tooth and nail were he to implement any of his domestic ideas.
