My NeoCon Republican friends....Submitted by Treg on Wed, 04/06/2011 - 13:36
Since 2002, my NeoCon Republican friends (800 email addresses) have received weekly new stories and videos and articles on Ron Paul.
They have been thoroughly "Pauled".
But lets now talk about the feedback.
"He's not macho enough for me. I think any Chinese president could push around a President Paul. Thats too scary for me."
"I can't stand his squeaky voice. It gets to me that he sort of whines"
"He doesn't command the room for me. He can't be my leader, my President"
"One reason why I liked Rudy and then Fred Thomas and then in the end Romney was that they just are not the kind of men who could be pushed around. For me, Ron Paul with his pencil neck and old age seems to me a worse looking Presidential material than Jimmie Carter, and we know what a softy he was".
"Wow, did you see Donald Trump at CPAC? He totally schooled Ron Paulers, put them in there place. He wouldn't put up with anybodies sh*t. I like that in a President."
"Well the reason I can never vote for Paul, although I agree with 99% of everything he says (except the war issue, we should bomb those Muslims into glass, f*ckem.) My response to Paul is, "Hey, they may be coming here because we are over there, so what. Its our oil, not theirs. Look it up. American companies found it, drilled it, and when Iran tried to steal BP's oil plants, we took them down. So what? Sure Ron Paul is right, it caused blow back with the hostages, but that mistake was Carters. He should have sent the Shaw and his stolen loot back to Iran, he didn't, and that is what caused the hostage taking. All I care about is Israel, who is trying real hard to make it in her country. The Palestinians lost in 67, LOST, so get over it. Land gone, so Settlements can continue! Go to Jordan losers. What I do agree with Paul is my Tax dollars should not be building Settlements, period. But support the Palestinians never, I am not an anti-Semite!!!"
"I do like Ron Paul, I like how he is consistent. He is not a flip flopper. What I don't like is he just doesn't seem Presidential to me. I can't say what it is, but I just can't imagine him in the White House, but Huckabee I know he will consult the Bible and do the right thing for America. Paul never talks about the Bible, just the Constitution. I think Huckabee knows of the Muslim threat to our Christian Culture here."
I could go on, but you can see from this cross section, we activists have a CHALLENGE ahead of us. Ron has been SEEN AND REPUBLICANS have PASSED on Ron Paul. He is a political product that earns a safe and secure 10%, but after that, he earns a big fact zero from the Rank n File Republicans.
True, they have NOT settled on who they want, they just know he must be more Macho, Commanding, and very very Presidential. Hence why they are excited about Trump. They want him to say to Obama, youre fired. Cheeky, but it works.
Enter RAND PAUL. To my SURPRISE, Sean Hanity, Lou Dobbs, and many others all LIKE Rand Paul and "the way he says things". Hundreds of other neoconized republicans on my email list like him too. Surprise. And they don't see him as weak, which is everything to them.
I think for my ACTIVISM to be reunited again, I would be inspired with a RAND PAUL for PRESIDENT CAMPAIGN. Sure, Dr. Ron Paul would no doubt be there, each step of the way. The question on Every Reporter's lips, "Who would be your Vice Presidential Pick? would it be your father?" And Rand would no doubt play that question out, mentioning lots of names, and never saying yea or nay to Ron Paul.
Republicans, especially NeoConized rank n file, seem to really LIKE Rand Paul.
"He's presidential" they say.
Watch Hanity here... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FXtYZ2SCifI
Rand2012... is a new and improved product for the NeoConnized Republican rank n file. They can "See Rand Paul as a real "Presidential Contendor"...
We activists, must STOP and think long and hard about pushing RAND PAUL at this time. The after 2012, Rand Paul could be a house hold name, and then by 2016, a top favorite to take the White House with Gov Gary Johnson as VP in tow....
For those that think Obama will loose in 2012, I tend to agree with Dr. Walter Williams who says, Obama will win, no matter who comes at him. The 10 Reasons Obama will win in 2012 are: http://faultlineusa.blogspot.com/2011/04/obama-wins-in-2012-...
SO,... who do we wish to make a household name for 2016? That is the question. For my ACTIVISM, its Rand Paul 2012.
In peace and liberty,
PS. Can someone send this to Dr. Ron Paul... it might make him think for the movement. The Campaign For Liberty could go on for decades and the young will have their hero, Rand Paul.
PSS. Like it or not, Jed Bush is the real GOP insider favorite for 2016. He will not be brought out to run in 2012, cause they know Obama will win. And in 2016, republican Rank n File will follow another Bush to the voting booth, curtsy of the elites in the GOP. So in 2016, it will be Jed Bush vs every other Republican contender... and so what RAND PAUL DOES in 2012, build his financial Coffers and most of all NAME RECOGNITION, positions himself for 2016. So yes, 2012 counts! Ron Paul, as much as I love him, will not be running in 2016. Think about it long and hard, the road to freedom is a strategic battle, as much as its a battle for ideas and policies.
