Time Magazine: Ron Paul "The Prophet"

Twilight descends in new Hampshire as an old man climbs onto his soapbox. LIBERTY: TOO BIG TO FAIL reads a banner hanging in the jam-packed tent. He is hardly a commanding figure, but a thousand people chant his name and lean in to listen, ready to follow, as Ron Paul delivers his genre-bending stump speech. There are no focus-grouped slogans, no empty calories: Paul's talk is more like a high-fiber graduate seminar on economic theory, forgotten history and the nooks and crannies of the U.S. Constitution. "The Federal Reserve system and all their members have been counterfeiters for a long time,"...

And Lindbergh's father was passionately opposed to the creation of the Fed..

Unfortunately, counterfiet money buys everything

And people have trouble telling the difference from real money.

The reason why they want to call him a prophet.

Amen I say to you, a prophet is not welcome in his own country.

This is what they are hoping for.

Ron Paul is not a prophet. He is a statesman and a courageous leader who speaks the truth.

Time Magazine

Time Magazine is almost purely a mouthpiece for the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).

Their articles and cover stories lately have been almost entirely globalist establishment attacks on the US Constitution, Bill of Rights, and American sovereignty.

Do not trust even slightly positive articles from this source. They're filled with subtle digs and a snarky tone designed to dis-credit anyone associated with the liberty movement.

They will try to destroy his candidacy any way they can.


I call them the enemy.

I don't care for the title.

I don't care for the photo...

And you'd have to take away about 50% of the article to make it good.

I object to the lead..."an old man climbs onto

his soap box..." do they do this to other significant candidates? On Perry, A pudgy war hawk stepped up... on Obama, a black authoritarian ... On Bachmann, a female zealot, On Hillary, a middle aged Valkyrie... On Mitt, a Ken Doll puppet...

"A pudgy war hawk," hahaha

"A pudgy war hawk," hahaha nice.

Yep. The purpose of the article is to subtly insult him.

Ron is being subtly put down in this article that pretends to praise him on balance. The first commentary points to his age and questions his physical appearance.

"He's incorruptible"

After I read that quote all I could think was that Ron Paul is Batman.

Ron Paul: Not the hero we deserved but the hero we needed.


For the Batman reference.

"Sometimes the truth isn't good enough, sometimes people deserve more. Sometimes people deserve to have their faith rewarded."

New Hampshire and Ecuador.


I was annoyed at not being able to read the article, until I saw your post. Cool.

"He is hardly a commanding figure. But..."

That's right--I almost forgot TIME Magazine prefers 'commanding figures'--like Men of the Year Nikita Khruschev, Yuri Andropov, Joseph Stalin, and Adolf Hitler.

I will buy the subscription

If you subsidize something, you get more of it. We should illustrate this truth to Time

Welcome, EyeMD.

DP is a great gathering of liberty-minded folks.

I love you DP. I am 20 and

I love you DP. I am 20 and you have been the media that helps push me to succeed, by teaching me of liberty. The philosophy of liberty pushes me in itself, but In 10-15 years ill run for office and liberty will be my priority. This revolution does not stop at Ron Paul it starts with him. He said it, he doesn't think he will see a free society in his liftetime. I will push my peers and we will see freedom in my lifetime. Some men search for glory.

It is Ron Paul's goal

to win the White House. But it is the ultimate achievement to educate millions in the process.

I believe this is where Jesse Benton was going with his comments.


The "extreme longshot"

snark and that last sentence are so tiring to read over and over from all of these major publications. They are trying to create a self-fulfilling prophecy. None of them have a damn clue about how this is going to turn out and yet they feel an urge to "bless" us with their opinions. God I wish they would just STFU!

Hard on Jesse

I don't completely understand why people keep dumping on Jesse. I think he's doing an excellent job.

Have you read the complaints? People have reason

Good reasons? You decide.

Get off Benton, people

Dude, maybe he could've handled the RT situation a bit more tactfully but he had to do some major distancing of RP with RT after Adam's mistake caused a potential legal conundrum.

I don't know why all of a sudden everyone seems to want to run RP's campaign for him, but we ought to trust that he's a smart guy and more than capable of making the right decisions. That is why we all want him in office, right?

The comment Jesse made in Time is something I agree with: George Washington didn't have great personal desire to become President either. Rick Perry does, yet claims he's reluctant. Perry is the Ron Paul poser. Ron Paul's the real deal. Really people, he never even desired to be in Congress but felt called.

That's two kerfluffles.

You didn't look very hard.
