Trash Alert!: PajamasMedia Ron Paul StorySubmitted by SteveMT on Fri, 08/07/2009 - 20:29
Poorly written, and even poorer augments, which are untrue. RP is not an isolationist! There is no mention of balanced budgets, pro-life, end the fed, etc.
We can flood the comments section to trash this piece of trash. Is this something we should fightback about or alternatively,let it go unanswered?
Ron Paul and the Dangers of Isolationism
Shine a light on his reckless ideas before he has a chance to do damage.
August 7, 2009 - by Spencer McCarthy
Ron Paul has built a reputation — (story continues with comments)
pretty pathetic article of a neo con arguing against ideas he thinks ron paul has. using selective quotes and straw man argumentation, not to knock ron really, but to support the neo con ideals.
lets be clear, neo cons have nothing to do with conservatism or american tradition. i will not speak for ron paul, but i will speak for me as a far right wing traditional conservative. neo con use of the budget is obscene. neo con foreign adventures in democracy building are obscene. neo con ignorance of almost every country in the world is obscene. neo con racism, anti trade notions, and ethnocentric facism is obscene. none of the mentioned obscenities have a thing to do with the conservatism. they are the fascist right. not the liberty right.
if you think using the military to bring countries into the usa’s sphere is smart. if you believe in building walls and trade restrictions. if you believe english culture and the usa s the center of the universe. you are not conservative, you are a dumb neo con. in that respect, ron paul makes a heck of a lot more sense than neo cons. neo cons, have not and never will be conservatives.

“Avoid entangling foreign alliances”.
I think those were wise words Washington used in his farewell address and I believe they are wise words today.

I could not agree more with the comments made by “gcblues.” Pathetic arguments, which are in fact incorrect. Ron Paul is not an isolationist. The author of this article is the one who is dangerous, and I hope that he is the one who will rest in peace after writing such a story.
“..as a man harping back to the ideals of a bygone era that never really was.”
Does the author refer to an era when we followed the Constitution? I long also for a time like this. McCarty should read it sometime soon and then write about who in Congress supports the Constitution more vigorously than Dr. Ron Paul. If he did, the page would be blank as this one should also be.
