Day After "Debate", Two Liberal Heavyweights Defend Paul

It just seems so fitting, of course. I now see why Rush said what he did today about Ron joining the Democrats. Grrr. Their "support" hurts Ron with the neo-con crowd.

Ralph Nader: Americans ignore the cause of 9/11

After attending a 9/11 panel in northwest D.C. on Monday, Ralph Nader told The Nation‘s George Zornick that Americans had mostly ignored the reasons that the terrorist attacks occurred.

“All we want to say is that it was a terrorist attack, it was evil, don’t talk about what caused it,” he said. “What really lead to it was, one, we back dictators over there that repress and kill their own people with American arms. Two, we support the Israeli position against the rights of the Palestinian people to have their own state. And three, we have repeatedly failed — no matter how much money we spend — to defend our own country.”

Chomsky: Ron Paul is right about al Qaeda

Appearing on Democracy Now! on Tuesday, U.S. scholar and MIT professor Noam Chomsky responded to comments made by Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) during Monday’s tea party debate, suggesting Paul had said nothing controversial at all, despite the audience’s negative reaction.

He agreed with Paul’s assessment about al Qaeda’s stated motives for attacking the U.S. on Sept. 11, 2001: it’s not American freedom or the nature of its society, it was U.S. policies that drove them to such a savage attack.

“What he said is completely uncontroversial,” Chomsky said. “You can read it and go in the documents. You can find it in polls. Maybe people don’t like to hear it.”

He concluded that many Muslims around the world had opposed the U.S. “not because they hate our freedoms, but because they opposed murderous and brutal policies.”

This video is from Democracy Now!, broadcast Tuesday, Sept. 13, 2011.

Peace is Always a Winner

Peace is always a winning platform, and it's the main reason Ron Paul can win. Not everyone understands economics on the grand scale, but everyone understands peace.

If the media want to give a voice to the issue, and counter the war-mongers, it can only help to get the facts and logic out there.

Freedom brings us together.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

We've always known this goes beyond political parties

It is good to have support for the truth, the revolution, from wherever we can get it.

Concerning right-wing propagadists saying support from the left is somehow bad, Ron Paul could say something like, "People often speak about a President needing to be able to lead to bi-partisan solutions. Well, I already have bi-partisan support...more so, I have the support of the people. How did I pull this off? By telling the truth...by adhering to the Constitution...by simply doing what an elected official is supposed to do...lead by example!

Just imagine how united the country will be when I become President."

Chompsky and Nader just gave Ron Paul the baton

The anti-war baton. Both Chompsky and Nader explained Ron Paul's position, or rather they translated Ron Paul's conservative message so that Liberal, opposed to Neo-Liberal (the counter-part to the Neo-con) could come to terms and support Ron Paul.

This last debate appears to have gains for Ron Paul in it's blow back, on the left. Chompsky and Nader can lead their anti-war horses to Ron Paul....

Never forget that Rush

Never forget that Rush supported Hillary last election.
The word 'duplicitous' doesn't scratch the surface when describing Rush.

Operation Chaos, my @ss

But hey, Rush is now talking about Ron Paul....that is a sign that we are ahead of where we were last year.

Rush is the last line of right-wing propaganda defense.

We've plowed through all the rest. They don't know what to do with Ron Paul: ignore him, praise him, bash him.

Did anyone else notice that

Did anyone else notice that the "fact check" site did not bother to "fact check" the little Santorum and Paul squabble. Since that would have proved that Paul was right. That Santorum was just talking based upon opinion when he said things like "American exceptionalism" is the cause of terrorism.

good idea

maybe I'll head over there and suggest they add that. Thanks!

"If this mischievous financial policy [greenbacks], which has its origin in North America, should become endurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debts. It will hav

Yep. That is true. We are

Yep. That is true. We are still building, under the radar. That is great because once "they" find out how big Paul's following is, it will be too late to stop it.

Nader and Chomsky are 2 thinking liberals and ...

I like thinking liberals, hell I like thinking conservatives.

What I don't like are the "from the gut" types, you know, those who don't think about politics, rather it all tribal for them. Yes, this includes 99% of the liberals (not just conservatives) and so, sadly, liberals don't listen to Nader or Chomsky--too much to think about; they just want to cheer their team rrrr tribe rrr those that they can culturally identify with.

I'll take a Paul-Nader ticket any day of the week.

Yes, please BUY this wonderful libertarian BOOK! We all must know the History of Freedom! Buy it today!

From the gut types:

the candidates for the GOP nomination, minus Paul.

If we can just get past the damn primary.

He would win the general election in a landslide.
