I first heard Ron Paul on the radio. I think it was around 1975. I was working in Manhattan at the time, had little money and the library and the radio were free. Given my background there were some things I liked, such as Paul was a Doctor, he had served in the military and he was more Libertarian than Republican. In many ways Ron Paul reminded me of my father.It was pre-RR.
Unfortunately, Ron Paul has gone south.
I could state a few reasons
But, he had to say this:
They’re not attacking us because we’re rich and free, they’re attacking us
because we’re over there.
Huh? Oh, his followers will whine about how he's right, the Constitution, blah, blah, blah. Lookit young'uns, I have read the Constitution. I have also read about the Barbary Pirates, so can it.
The above statement from Paul is way to close to "You started it", "Uh-UH, you started it", "Did not", "Did TOO".
Ron Paul is lowering the importance of the War on Terror and the issue that these people want to come here and kill us to the level of two fifth graders?
No wonder Andrew Sullivan agrees with Ron Paul.
Take'm to the woodshed.
