Anyone But Ron Paul

While Obama is a threat to our domestic liberties, Ron Paul’s non-interventionist views are beyond dangerous.  They are suicidal.

Perhaps it’s fitting to note what the Second President of the United States said about Democracies in view of Ron Paul’s standing in the polls:

“There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide”. – John Adams

Of course spending ourselves into oblivion with welfare programs that grow the tyrannical state was most likely the intent of the warning Adam’s gave, Ron Paul would make national suicide a literal application by prostrating us before our enemies and blaming ourselves for any acts of war waged on us by expanding militant Islam.

In a companion piece to what I wrote in yesterday’s blog, Gary Bauer nails what we true Conservatives understand about Ron Paul, and his insane and dangerous views in a very hostile world that he pretends does not exist unless provoked first by America. And as Gary Bauer notes, Ron Paul is far more radical than even Obama is on matters of security for this nation.  In fact, much of Paul’s lambasting of Conservatives is right out of the Obama playbook.  No wonder so many fringe Leftists support Ron Paul.

If it’s down to Obama and Ron Paul, national suicide would seem a certainty in our future.

Look for the Ronulan Mob Zombie Hordes to descend in vain attempts to justify their vaunted savior’s lunatic positions.  They will most likely start by declaring Bauer a “NeoCon” and dismiss everything out of hand.  Such as it has been since 2007.

 

Anyone But Ron Paul for President

Gary Bauer

Some of the most indelible images from September 11, 2001, are of video footage of cheering Muslim crowds in the streets of Ramallah and East Jerusalem as news of the attacks swept across the Middle East.

Is there any doubt that if Ron Paul is elected President, his inauguration will elicit similar jubilation in the cities of America’s worst enemies?

Words such as “noninterventionist” and “isolationist” have been used to describe Paul’s foreign policy views.  A more apt word is “dangerous.”

I like the Texas congressman’s opposition to Big Government.  But his foreign policy and national security views are so dangerous that they should disqualify him for the presidency.

It is tempted to compare Paul’s foreign policy views to those of President Obama.  Both seem to enjoy stressing America’s sins, real and imagined, and both naively believe a little diplomacy is all that’s needed to appease rogue regimes such as Iran.

Like Obama, Paul wants terrorists caught in the U.S. to be treated not as enemy combatants but as common criminals.  Also like Obama, Paul supported the building of a mosque near Ground Zero in New York City, insisting that opposition to its construction was “all about hate and Islamophobia.”

But Paul’s foreign policy views are much more radical than Obama’s.  Paul disapproves of Obama’s drone strikes on terrorists, and would shutter U.S. military bases abroad.  Paul says he would not have ordered the killing of Osama bin Laden.  You’d be hard-pressed to find one in a million Americans who would agree with that.

Paul’s foreign policy views would stand out even in a field of the most liberal Democrats. In fact, Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich, perhaps the most left-wing presidential candidate ever, has said he and Paul “agree tremendously on international policy.”  Paul says he’d consider naming Kucinich to his Cabinet—perhaps as head of a newly formed “Department of Peace.”

But Paul’s views of America and its place in the world go beyond the liberal appeasement of Obama or Kucinich.  In fact, in their sheer conspiratorial lunacy, they align more closely with Obama’s former pastor and mentor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

Consider both Wright’s and Paul’s reaction to 9/11.  Wright described the attacks as “America’s chickens coming home to roost,” and said of America’s government, “We’re the same as al-Qaeda.”

Paul has said that America’s foreign policy was a “major contributing factor” to the attacks, and he allegedly wanted to vote against authorizing war in Afghanistan.  Both Wright and Paul are conspiracy theorists.  According to a former longtime aide, Paul suggested that the attacks may have been coordinated by the CIA or that the Bush administration knew about the attacks ahead of time.  Paul has claimed that 9/11 caused “glee in the administration because now we can invade Iraq.”  He has also suggested that Mossad, the Israeli intelligence service, was responsible for the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

Wright has claimed that the U.S. government manufactured the AIDS virus to kill black people.  And Paul has allegedly written that the government is “lying” about the threat of AIDS.

Both Wright and Paul are radically anti-Israel.  Wright has called the state of Israel “illegal” and “genocidal.”  He gave a lifetime achievement award to radical Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, an anti-Semite who Wright said “truly epitomized greatness.”

According to his former aide, Paul “wishes the Israeli state did not exist at all.”  The ex-adviser said Paul “sides with the Palestinians, and supports their calls for the abolishment of the Jewish state, and the return of Israel, all of it, to the Arabs.”

Paul has also said he would not have intervened in World War II if Japan hadn’t attacked the U.S., even against Hitler’s Germany to prevent the Holocaust.  This, he insists, somehow fits into a foreign policy based on the Golden Rule.

Paul rarely criticizes President Obama, but has a disturbing tendency to slander his country and fellow Republicans.  He has charged that America has declared “war on 1.2 billion Muslims,” and accused Michele Bachmann of hating Muslims and Rick Santorum of hating gays.  This extremist does the conservative cause an injustice by playing into the Left’s worst false stereotypes of Republicans.  No wonder Paul derives much of his support from the fringe Left.

Many Paulites say they support him for his economic policy views, while dismissing his foreign policy extremism.  But they should realize that in the highly improbable case that Paul becomes President, he would, as Commander-in-chief, have much power to enact his national security agenda and much less influence over economic policy.

By regularly casting America as the world’s villain and by advocating the abandonment of our alliances and the abdication of our duties around the world, a Ron Paul presidency would cheer our enemies, demoralize our friends and guarantee a decline in our national security.

    I am a Republican. At least I WAS. The party left me over 20 years ago. I am a hardcore conservative. A real conservative. I’ve worn the uniform of a United States Marine. Folks, we been betrayed by BOTH major parties. The difference between Dems and Repubs? Nadda. Zilch. Nothing. Both are anti-freedom, more taxes, and global government. ALL THE WAY.

    And make no mistake, the right doesn’t have a candidate that can beat Obonehead. He owns the press, and will CHEAT to win.

    Prep accordingly. This kettle is going to boil. And they WANT that.

  2. invar

    That they do. It’s key to imposing an iron fist at the demand of the people for order in the wake of bloodshed and chaos.

    The prescription to save ourselves unfortuneately is being discarded and rejected by a people who instead want to make a king and savior.

    Thus leads to our utter ruination.

    It may be too late to stop the consequences at this juncture in time. Get thine house in order and stand fast in the Lord while He may be found.

    For a time is soon coming, when He will laugh at us in the day of our calamity, and not hear any of our prayers.

  3. Osmium

    I fully agree. The vast majority of Republicans voted for the NDAA. Only 13 represenatives and senators (total) ever voiced any opposition against it. Only two tried to amend it as far as I know.

  4. invar

    Yes, and the precedent now is that NO ONE IN CONGRESS bothers to read any of their legislation crafted in secret and shoved as riders into the bill. They vote on the talking point aspects of the bill’s supposed intent for political purposes, never bothering to read what nefarious crap has been injected into the rest of the bill.

    This is how we get a bill whose stated intent is to FUND the military, suddenly makes legal the indefinite detention without charge, any American citizen THE PRESIDENT deems and enemy of the state.

    Thus the clueless GOP imbeciles think they were voting to fund our troops, while the Ruling Class GOP shares the desire to wipe out those of us who oppose their intent to rule us.

  5. Osmium

    Yes, and they intentionally do not read the riders. Nazi Pelosi said blazenly about Obama care “we’ve got to pass it before we can find out what’s in it.”

    Congress has become a cartel.

  6. steadysteve

    This guy would have us intervene when ever corporate interests are at stake as we do now? And shovel more of our resources into the military-corporate profiteering complex? The American people have not been informed of all the indecent crap that we have done to other countries and people to further corporate and financial interests. And he thinks stopping this behavior is the wrong thing to do? Who is the real whack job here?

  7. thejohnfree

    I oppose Ron Paul for similar reasons to invar’s well stated message above.
    What baffles me is that there are so many paul-bots out there that didn’t learn anything from the last election. Paul failed last time and he will fail again, and then who are we stuck with in the white house???

    Hello?

  8. invar

    This guy would have us intervene when ever corporate interests are at stake as we do now?

    Oh the talking point rhetoric of the Ronulan Paulbots and the Marxist Left is SOOO indistinguishable one from another.

    And shovel more of our resources into the military-corporate profiteering complex?

    Oh I know, how DARE anyone think of making a profit!!!! Greater sin hath no one than he that desireth to maketh a buck. Such should be stricken down and stoned by many stones according to these people. Tear it all down! Dismantle the military! That’s the real ticket to liberty – RIGHT you Paulbots???

    The American people have not been informed of all the indecent crap that we have done to other countries

    Exactly – the American people should ask Ahmadinejad and the Mullahs of Iran and the Taliban about how rotten we are! That’s where the REAL truth about America can be found – from the words of our avowed enemies!

    Who is the real whack job here?

    The idiots who seig neil Ron Paul or Obama and push the class warfare rhetoric that BOTH moronic political camps want to use to stoke a violent revolution” to vaunt their political saviors to sainthood.

    Typical Invar. Ascribe motives which do not exist to someone you do not know. I do not envy the wealthy, in fact I work directly for a billionaire. There is nothing wrong with a businessman making a profit from his labor. But when a small group of bankers and corporate interests have captured our government up to and including the oval office; I take issue. I suppose you SEIG HEIL away with those who passed and support the NDAA. Only the latest affront to our liberties. Those of us who support Ron Paul would like to see the federal government reduced in size and power to it’s Constitutionally defined limits, as written. It’s that simple

  10. invar

    Typical Invar.

    Yes, I am if anything – CONSISTENT, and totally opposed to your political messiah.

    Ascribe motives which do not exist to someone you do not know.

    Words mean things. I discern motives from what is written. I know from where the Ron Paul meme talking points come from and what they actually mean to his mob zombies. You have simply parroted them here, so ascribing them is easy.

    I do not envy the wealthy,

    No, you despise them. ‘profiteering complex’ your bellwether talking point.

    There is nothing wrong with a businessman making a profit from his labor.

    Except when it’s a company or corporation. Then, they are nothing but ‘profiteering complexes’ and evil. I know what the Ron Paul Mob Zombies and O-Bots mean with their myriad slogans and rhetoric. It’s your vain attempt to differentiate yourselves from the Marxists.

    But when a small group of bankers and corporate interests have captured our government up to and including the oval office; I take issue.

    This is where you tinfoil agenda-pushers always reveal yourselves. So which BANKERS specifically have captured the government? B of A? Lehman Bros? Citigroup? Which of them have captured the government? Got irrefutable documentation besides what idiocy you hear from Alex Jones? How soon before we get to again see ‘Rothchilds” and the other evil NWO Illuminatti stuff get spewed?

    I suppose you SEIG HEIL away with those who passed and support the NDAA.

    Suppose away. Yes. Suppose. Readers of this blog already know where I stand on that issue, because I blogged on it. Funny how you people are so good at projecting and accusing others of what you yourselves do. Didn’t you just charge me above with ‘ascribing motives which do not exist’?

    Those of us who support Ron Paul would like to see the federal government reduced in size and power to it’s Constitutionally defined limits, as written. It’s that simple

    No you don’t. You want him to become Savior, which means if he becomes dictator, more power to him if he will tear this entire country down – which is what you Mob Zombies really want. In that regard you people are really no different than the O-Bots, except whom you want vaunted to the top spot. Not to mention your political messiah HAS NO PLAN TO REALISTICALLY ACCOMPLISH ANYTHING he rants against. Not even the Fed. For as long as Career Paul has been haunting the House – what DENT has he made legislatively to restrict or dismantle it??

    NONE.

    NOTHING.

    NADA.

    He wrote a book that he sells.

    That is all, in between earmarking huge amounts of our tax dollars to funnel back to his district.

    Ron Paul will not do jack crap – except spew about how rotten America is in the face of our enemies.

    Let me get this straight. Are you saying Jesus should’ve had the original 12 disciples evangelize the world through strength? Whose? I read somewhere that our military involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan has not resulted in the growth of the Christian church, but the demise. Is that not true?

  12. invar

    Where do you people get these spurious assertions to attempt a straw man argument you think establishes an empty position?

    What idiot did you read that suggested that the actions in A’stan or Iraq were for the purpose of growing the church? Where in anything Bauer wrote or I have written that suggests Christian evangelism should be done by force?

    I find it hilarious the vain attempts to slander by the vapid emptiness of the pacifists among us whom do not have either principle or courage to stand against either sin, nor evil.

    The demise of our culture and our status in the world is because the church itself has grown lukewarm and lost it’s saltiness and is good for nothing. It has spent too much time listening to pacifists with unscriptural and false doctrines that watered down the Word, and convinced them of the Satanic lie to no longer judge sin from righteousness, and to embrace evil – so that we no longer can discern between right and wrong, good or evil.

    So it is no surprise to me that you would be so easily ensnared by a false understanding to ask such an asinine question that only illustrates that God’s Word is true when it is written: “My people are destroyed for a lack of wisdom” – Hosea 4:6
