Ron Paul in the Lead?

Filed under: 2008 — olbroad @ 10:10

I don’t bloody well think so!  The only reason that would even happen is the loony left is dialing in to screw up the “voting” on the debate.

They all did fairly well with a couple of exceptions.  One would be Paul, who I’m seriously disappointed in, and Tommy Thompson.  I wonder if his health is ok, cuz he sure seems out of it.



  1. Typical of the MSM and their loaded questions to Dr. Paul…still, I think the exchange with Giuliani was good…Dr. Pual did not take back his comment and rightfully so; rather he tried to explain the concept of “blowback” which the other candidates did not understand-nor did they address-we do face consequences for our foreign policy decisions and 911 was most certainly directly related to the foreign policy of 20 plus years of meddling in the middle east and doing so in a biased manner.
    Sadly most Americans can not think for themselves and can’t therefore realize that the foreign policy decisions of the USA have consequences…an action will have an equally opposing or greater reaction…thus 20 plus years of biased meddling in the middle east=911…

  3. Ron is a patriot for talking about concepts like “blowback” He also doesn’t play games – He could brag about being a veteran himself (he is) but he sticks to the difficult issues with great substance. That question about “What would we do/think if China was building bases and Vatican size embassies” was amazing and brave.

  5. Where do you loons come from, exactly? You do realize that Ron Paul is never – I repeat, never – going to be President of the United States, right?

  6. Ron Paul Loons continue to rally because they are not just helping a man get a political nomination, they see this as an effort to restore liberty. They do not see this as an exercise to choose the next leader of America, they see this as an opportunity to change the course of American history. When you phrase the issue like that, it is only natural supporters have a sort of fanatical quality. Honestly what will motivate people more, stopping the Democrats, or saving the nation and liberty from the forces of statism?

  7. Wow…you’re even more delusional than I thought….

  8. Calling supporters ‘loons’ and pointing out Ron’s chances to win doesn’t constitute an argument. Nice dodge though. Of course Ron Paul is right on the facts. The other candidates by and large support war, torture, detainment without trial, and expanded government – they’re un-American as it comes. Most of the frontrunners aren’t even good on guns, abortion and immigration, which you’d think might matter to a few of the true conservatives out there.
    Go Ron Paul!

  9. War – We only support it when we’re threatened (which we are), and when peaceful means have been extinguished (which they have).

    Torture – Not simply for the heck of it, but when jihadist monsters have information that could save innocent lives, I really don’t care how we get it out of them.

    Detainment w/o Trial – Guess how much right a non-citizen has to American court systems? None. Zero. Zip.

    Expanded government – true, the Big 3 aren’t exactly where I’d like, but Mitt & McCain would both make SOME improvements in that area, and their deficiencies are hardly “un-American.”

    Tell Ronnie that the adults are busy trying to deal with something kind of important. It’s called world war.

  10. Hmmm…. right on the ‘facts’ eh? I guess you agree we invited the terrorists to attack us? I don’t bloomin’ think so! That’s pretty much like telling the victim of a rape it was HER fault.

  11. Ron Paul was so wrong on the facts I don’t know where to begin. But, first and foremost, his statement about FDR was wrong. Although bruited for years, there has never been any proof that FDR knew about Pearl Harbor before it occurred. Also, 9-11 was not our excuse to go into Iraq. Bush was planning on holding Iraq to the terms of the ceasefire all along. In fact, 9-11 distracted him from that by having to deal with Al Qaeda in Afghanistan before taking on Hussein. Of course, that is the logical reasoning, so I don’t expect the Ron Paulettes to get it.

    Also, torture is wrong. Period. Furthermore, the information “gathered” from such is NOT accurate. Even the British stopped using it against the IRA when they realized it was not doing a darn bit of good.

  12. I understand that some methods could prove to be unreliable. But we know that, for instance, waterboarding HAS saved lives. I agree with (former federal prosecutor) Andy McCarthy’s take:
