I mean, even if I cover one eye like you do when your drunk to make stuff stop swaying, I can’t see what it is about Ron Paul that makes everyone on the net so ….damn….every word I come up with sounds bad. exuberantly whacko, maybe? I just see this guy who I know is worshipped by every militia and ku kluck klansman in the country. He really doesn’t bring rational ideas to the table. I like that about him, but I’m more twisted than most, and I kind of always hoped that my felllow Americans were a tad more stable than I. Having treaded water in the shallow end of the gene pool for as long as I have, you can’t help but feel things are a little saner over in the deep end.
I guess I’m wrong. Take the war in Iraq. Are you really mad that we fought a war in Iraq? You weren’t up blowing your kazoo during the not ready for prime time “shock and awe” exhibition? Oh, c’mon, you can tell me. i watched it. morbid fascination is a hallmark of mine. Isn’t whats really stuck in your craw the fact that after your little foray into imperialism, and preventive destruction, George Bush and his cronies have made such a hash of the job? Mission Accomplished, if it had been accomplished then would have been received all over the country with ticker tape parades and 76 trombones, and even the little peace and love liberals would’ve flown the flag. They’d of hated George again a week later, but they would’ve loved one in the win column just like everyone else.
Got a little off track there, but my point is the folks that are all for Ron all the time really don’t seem to be in it for the isolationism stance. They seem to like the same things david koresh liked, and the folks at Ruby ridge liked. I’m not against anti-government nuts except when they couch it as a normal and proper way of thinking. I’ll grant that a lot of the folks that have posted me are looking at Ron Paul from a utopian perspective. If everything in the world were right and 1 + 2 = 3 all the time then Ron would be the man. We live in a very dysfunctional world though, and there are plenty of people that can make 1 + 1 =any damn thing they please. Ron Paul is not suitable for a roll as a leader in a nation facing as many dramatically dangerous issues as ours.
How do you suppose he would deal with China? That is the single most important issue facing America today, and I don’t care how many terrorists you whip out. Do you really think his idea of foreign policy is suitable to deal with the inscrutable? I don’t think so.
You can usually judge a book by its cover, and you can tell a lot about a person by the people that they associate with. You may not be a mobster, but if you hang around with the mafia boys you probably eat a lot of cannoli’s on the cheap. If every rightwing nutjob organization in America is endorsing you then you may just be a …dare I say it….naw….I won’t but you know what I mean.
I still think most of his supporters are decent people, and several I’ve spoken to seem like fine people. i happen to think they may be misguided.
