12:34 AM Huckabee says

RON PAUL Supporters are a mix of gun show and Greatfull Dead concert goers. RON PAUL is not really a Republican , he is a Libertarian.

So much for converting the Republican Party establishment.
So much for shutting down Crazy talkers. What is in your Wallet ? Doesn't sound too inclusive for winning votes as a Republican.

why is so much attention given to huckabee?

he's only popular among the seniors because he's least likely to cut social security.. just like romney.. turnouts this time will likely be greater than 08 for those unemployed youths now perhaps into their 3rd year.. they will vote no matter how brain dead they are

huckabee won't win and romney won't win.. why is so much attention even given to him. the welfare-choked seniors are a lost cause more so than the youth vote.

Well, he's made it clear

Well, he's made it clear Huckabee, the preacher, is NO gentleman. His vitriol and scorn only makes him appear a sore loser.

I'm a Ron Paul supporter 100%

I'm a Ron Paul supporter 100% and I do not own a gun (have chosen not to up till now). Furthermore, not only have I never been to a Greatfull Dead concert (is that really how you spell their name?), but I have never even held one of their albums in my hand, much less owned one.

Am I that unusual? Surely there or more of us. But even if there aren't, I'd rather be friends with all you gun toting pot heads than with a liberty destroying neocon like Huckabee.

What Huckabee really meant

What Huckabee really meant was, Ron Paul does not support the globalist agenda of the Council on Foreign Relations, and so should not be considered a viable candidate.

Ron Paul's candidacy is a threat to the continued destruction of our national sovereignty, our personal freedom, and our continued swindling through inflation and bail outs. Apparently the rest of the Republican (and Democrat) candidates want to keep business as usual.


Plain and simple - Huckabee was saying that only hunting or paramilitary fanatics and pot-heads support Ron Paul. And it was said as a slight.

Personally, I have nothing against hunting or paramilitary fanatics and pot heads. Its a big country and everybody is entitled to the freedom and liberty to be who they want to be. I have many friends, and some of them are hunters, paramilitary fanatics and pot-heads.

But I myself have never hunted, I am not a paramilitary fanatic (though I must admit I own a military type rifle) and I have never smoked pot. Nevertheless, I am a Republican who supports Ron Paul absolutely and 100%.

Diversity is good. And I am glad we have people from all walks of life supporting Dr. Paul. And I resent a bible thumping NeoCon like Huckabee trying to pigeon hole us as something radical and unsavory.

We ARE America as the founding fathers wanted it to be. And we are taking it back - for them and US!

Its great,

Its what we've always known would come.

First they ignore you, then ridicule, then FIGHT YOU, then we win.

We are at the THIRD stage.

We were ignored last year when people with far less support were allowed to appear in Faux News Debates.

We were riducled then and recently, even including being mentioned as a second tier candidate regarding the S. Carolina debates.

Now we ARE in the fight stage. Huckabee and Leno were not humorously tossing Ron Paul off as a joke as might have happened in the past. That was an attack.

And we can expect a lot more attacks and a lot of fights, before ulimately we go to the fourth stage.

And win.

I'm both but, not usually at the same time.

I like to open carry and wear

I like to open carry and wear a shirt against prohibition, preferably a tye dye. Confuses the hell out of everyone! :)

psyops eh?

psyops eh?

Yeah, I go to gun shows

...and I promote constitutionalism, Ron Paul, my local group that wakes people out of their Huck-induced comas.

I also listen to heavy metal music, ride motorcycles, scour used bookstores, shop for fashionable clothing, and enjoy eating at gourmet restaurants.

I am 100% drug, alcohol, and caffeine free.

Pigeon hole me if you can, Huckster.

Well, this Ron Paul supporter...

is a small business-owning, law-abiding, tax-paying, church-going, school-volunteering, cash-contributing, politically active 23-year-registered Republican, wife and mother who lives in the South ... just the kind of voter Mr. Huckabee hopes to have in his corner -- not! Over my grateful dead body!! ;) Oh ... forgot to mention that I am drug-free, too. So there.

Preach it, sistah!

Amen! :)

that's a job for the almighty and awesomely righteous Huckabee!

Ha ha! He pegged one of us right.

I'm going to keep my pistol on top of my Grateful Dead box set when I get it this September.

Huck off, hoser.


europe '72 baby!

oh and don't forget

The Dead and the Allman Brothers all supported Obama in 08, and even held a successful benefit concert for his campaign. (Phil Lesh's son was among O's campaign staff).

Good point.

I try to keep my musical tastes seperate from politics, and I really wanted to go to that Philly show in 2008, but I couldn't knowing that it was an Obama benefit.

I ordered two box sets. I think I'll sell the second one and donate the profit to Ron Paul in honor of Bobby and Phil's support of Obama's campaign.

That's too bad about Phil's son. Can he sing that good too? ;)

I do believe

Huckabee is bought and sold by the establishment and doing their bidding. He speaks for the religious right and those comments have most likely cemented their opinion. What Pastor Huckabee says is truth to them - it is beyond frustrating, disturbing, and at times disheartening.
BUT I do believe this is their ammunition to break us down -don't let them. The barrage of negativity will abate - keep looking at the goal not at the distractions.

As a Christian - Huckabee should not have said those things. I wish the religious right could see through his hypocrisy.

What a bizarre world we live in.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.
Ron Paul - The Revolution

Setting a good example is a far better way to spread ideals than through force of arms. Ron Paul

Many of us do see through the

Many of us do see through the hypocrisy. It is all about our educational efforts. Our personal conversations with people multiplied x100's of thousands is moving the debate and nation...slowly, but surely. Have patience...we will win.

Who is John Galt? Vote ███ ███ 2012!

That's funny..

Lot's of Christians and non-Christians go to gun shows. He should take some heat for this.


I don't fit into either of those camps.

Huckabee is dumb.

Huckabee is the Rule not the Exception among

Totalitarian Believers / Thinkers

I know some of you do not want to "hear" this but there was a REASON Jefferson was a Deist.

You cannot have "liberty" when you come from a collectivist tradition thinking you can tow it along.

Religions (at the very least) feel "sympathy" for all "other" religions (even between "other" denominations) and you do not trully hold in high esteem someone you think needs "saving" and "conversion" or that they are "lesser" (as the Jews believe -- scripturally).

Individualism is supported by Deism and Atheism; but I seriously question Absolutist Thinking Groupists -- if they can "convert" to Liberty.

There's someone I know of who kind of blows your theory,

you should look into him, just google "Ron Paul".

He might not blow your theory, but he is definitely the exception to your rule :)

Ron Paul is not a Totalitarian Thinker

Liberty comes (before) his "belief" system, it pre-empts it ethically and morally; otherwise he would not mind using "force" in Congress to do "God's" work.

He might go to "church" but he is not a scriptural-absolutist -- I'd say he's more of a "Deist" (a person with the humility that "he" and no other "man" knows God's mind and so never makes totalitarian comments about "sin").

Christians like Paul are more akin to Deists then "true believers" (again in the totalitarian sense -- the positions of the new testament and old testament regarding who is "blessed" and who is "going to hell")

You don't know Ron

His belief system is what drives his love of Liberty.

His political beliefs are a direct result of biblical Christianity.

Love the sinner, hate the sin.

Compulsion, Oppression and Prohibition do not save the souls of men.

Erschiessen: His favorite people to quote were

are either avowed Atheists or non-Dogmatic Deists.

What you said is PURE Popcockery (poppycock).

Only a "Deist" can skim the Bible and come to think that a man who said "only by way of 'me' can you know God."

To know the Absolute you must absolutely pass by way of his "begoten" Son or be torn from limb to limb over and over in burning agony forever.

From this logic the Catholics have the "Vicar of Christ" (the Pope). Or do you think the Catholics logic wrong?

If you are a Calvinist and descendent of Martin Luther then you must believe that all Jews and Catholics will go to hell. Martin Luther being the "father" of Protestantism.

Evangelicals heroworship the Jews or at the very least believe it's their job to perfect the jews -- like Ann Coulture believes.

Find me a quote of RP where he quotes an avowed Christian (capital "C") -- and don't say Martin Luther King Jr; because MLK Jr had avowed homosexuals and atheists working in the movement in prominent positions and practiced more closely the teachings of Gandhi and read authors from the "Enlightenment" period (who were mostly homosexual or atheists, smile).

Somehow I don't see RP following this scripture:

1 Peter 2:13-16 (King James Version)

13 Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme;

14 Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well.

15 For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:

16 As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.

How would he feel about Romans 13: 5-7

5 Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience.

6 This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing.

7 Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.

I think RP is more of a Deist:

Again: You don't know Ron


We live in times of great uncertainty when men of faith must stand up for our values and our traditions lest they be washed away in a sea of fear and relativism. As you likely know, I am running for President of the United States, and I am asking for your support.

I have never been one who is comfortable talking about my faith in the political arena. In fact, the pandering that typically occurs in the election season I find to be distasteful. But for those who have asked, I freely confess that Jesus Christ is my personal Savior, and that I seek His guidance in all that I do. I know, as you do, that our freedoms come not from man, but from God. My record of public service reflects my reverence for the Natural Rights with which we have been endowed by a loving Creator.

The Cross is not a truncheon with which Man uses to rule over other Men.
It is the path to God.

Erschiessen: I said Ron Paul is a "Deist"

for that humility is not seen among Christians.

I seriously doubt that Ron Paul thinks Jefferson, Franklin, Mises, or Rockwell will go to Hell for being Atheists or Deists (respectively).

Nor would I "hire" someone who is secretly pitying me, as if they have a "knowledge" that I do not -- they have "rote memorizations and socialization" that I do not have; but no "factual" knowledge or truth. For them to think that way is an afront to logic and peace (peace among men).

Your quote proves my point it does not "break it" which was; "Huckabee is the rule not the exception" among Christians -- which is a literalist and totalitarian tradition (include in that ALL Abrahamist Traditions: Christianity, Islam, and Judaism).

Ron Paul probably does not spend one minute on whose going to hell -- but the Christian Bible (and not ONE Christian Tradition) allows him to have that finality -- Churchianity demands that you believe at least two things: 1) Jesus is the ONLY way to God (to avoid or circumvent is to burn in Hell for ever and ever -- no parol from this law) and 2) The Bible is the written Word of God.

What branch of Christianity is Ron Paul from?

As I said -- I think Ron Paul is a Deist.

I've never heard him quote anyone other than a Deist or an Atheist in regard to Liberty.

Your bigotry is laughable

... almost as laughable as your inability to admit your error.

To be congruent, I hope you have the huevos to ask the people that hire you whether or not they have religious views, and express why you pose that question. It'll bolster business, I bet.

RP stated that Jesus Christ is his personal savior. That is not in line with someone that is a Creationist who believes that God doesn't intercede in the lives of Man... the definition of a deist.

There can be no larger intercession in our affairs than to send One's Son to die in our stead.

James 1:25
But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
