Smoking Article To Send To Any Left And Or Obama Supporter On Why They Should Vote Paul 2012

Ron Paul: A Lesser Evil?

by Charles Davis / April 28th, 2011

Ron Paul is far from perfect, but I’ll say this much for the Texas congressman: He has never authorized a drone strike in Pakistan. He has never authorized the killing of dozens of women and children in Yemen. He hasn’t protected torturers from prosecution and he hasn’t overseen the torturous treatment of a 23-year-old young man for the “crime” of revealing the government’s criminal behavior.

Can the same be said for Barack Obama?

Yet, ask a good movement liberal or progressive about the two and you’ll quickly be informed that, yeah, Ron Paul’s good on the war stuff — yawn — but otherwise he’s a no-good right-wing reactionary of the worst order, a guy who’d kick your Aunt Beth off Medicare and force her to turn tricks for blood-pressure meds. By contrast, Obama, war crimes and all, provokes no such visceral distaste. He’s more cosmopolitan, after all — less Texas-y. He’s a Democrat. And gosh, even if he’s made a few mistakes, he means well.

Sure he’s a murderer, in other words, but at least he’s not a Republican!

I passed this article up several times

because I'm not especially interested in smoking, although I do support smokers' rights. If I passed it up, how many others were thrown by the strict meaning of the term?

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

and if he had said "CooL" perhaps you'd turn on the heat?

lol

Don't worry. This article has been posted three times.

It's that good.

I would put this on HuffPo...

...but I have already been labelled a PaulBot - so it would be better if someone else did.

RƎVO⅃UTION NOW!

That article really put Obama

That article really put Obama away.

Republicans need to realize Ron Paul is the only one who can beat Obama.

Awesome article I posted

on my Facebook

This is stupid

Without commenting on the content, as it does not matter at all. Did you not learn last time that we NEED TO WIN THE REPUBLICAN NOMINATION FIRST. Except a few states that allow open primaries this does not help. In addition, passing RP off as getting lots of leftie votes is not going to bring love within the Republican base. It is one thing to say he can get enough independent and democratic (blue dog!) support to win the general - its another to promote him as being the progressive's ideal choice.

I thought 21 states had open primaries? California, Georgia, Illinois, Ohio, Virginia, etc. I thought there was plenty of time for people to register as Republican too.

I believe this article was written by a "leftie".

I don't think it's stupid - I think it's smart for exceptionally perceptive lefties to call each other out on their hypocrisy - and offer an alternative.

Bump! Bump! Bump!

This is indeed a powerful essay.

I sent it out and boy what a response its getting...

We need dozens more articles just like that.

This deserves a bump if

anything does! This is will be one blindsiding Obama, if it can be spread nationwide.

Thank you for posting. this article is

one of the bravest I've seen from the Progessive camp. Kudos to the author and the website for their courage in stating the obvious truth when almost all of their comrades quail and duck for cover and remain complicit with absolute evil.

I hope this article receives a wide readership. I've posted it to Facebook for my Progressive friends Will they dare to read it? Even if so, will they have the guts to face the truth and abandon some of their deepest biases and false certainties?

Great article

Thanks

Excellent step I

Excellent step I. The big, important step is to convince them, or, more accurately, to help them convince themselves, that the thing to do is to place thumb and forefinger firmly on nose and register Republican to help Ron win the nomination.
