HILL: Ron Paul booed over proposed 'golden rule' of foreign policy

Ron Paul booed over proposed 'golden rule' of foreign policy
By Justin Sink - 01/16/12 10:20 PM ET

Ron Paul found a South Carolina audience highly skeptical of his foreign policy position during Monday's debate, with scattered boos and jeers drowning out his call for a "golden rule" in American foreign policy.

"My point is, that if another country does to us what we do to others, we aren't going to like it very much. So I would say maybe we ought to consider a golden rule in foreign policy," Paul said as the crowd laughed and jeered. "We endlessly bomb these other countries and then we wonder why they get upset with us?"

But Paul was able to win back part of the crowd by calling for an end to foreign wars, earning a smattering of applause.

"This idea that we can't debate foreign policy and that all we have to do is start another war, I mean.. it's war mongering," Paul said. "This country doesn't need another war, we need to quit the ones we're in, we need to save the money and bring our troops home."

Commentary: It's important that RP begin linking Civil Liberties directly to the foreign wars to try and get through to the schizophrenic public that supports the wars, but hates the TSA not realizing how the former begot the latter.

well . . .

as much as I don't 'side' with the Union in the Civil War (nor with the Confederacy)--

as much as I don't think Lincoln was a hero--

it WAS, after all, South Carolina who began the Civil War--


it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

South Carolina, You are a Disgrace!

If you are a South Carolinian, then prove me wrong! Go out there a stump for Ron Paul! Complain to news organizations. Tell your pastor what a hypocritical stance the religious right have become!

I actually believe this was staged by the Neo's. But it was done in SC's own back yard! Are you going to put up with this?

"I like your Christ....

I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ." - Ghandi

My understanding of this quote grows more and more every day.

Need to double down on GOLDEN RULE

They opened the door to it so now it's up to us to make this the primary argument for Paul's foreign policy rather than the more difficult to explain term: "non-interventionalism"

The Golden Rule Foreign Policy

I like it. Ron Paul did coin the phrase in the debate. God bless.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

I wish Ron Paul could say to all these phony chicken hawks

If you want to attack Iran, or kill innocent Afghans who are just defending their country.... how about you do it yourself! Don't rely on the military and other Americans' 18 year old children to attack and kill them. Get all you chicken hawk, delusional phonies together, board flights to those countries, and personally shoot those other humans that you want killed in the FACE! How about stab a knife in their heart and watch the life drain from their eyes. They are non human, savages.... right??? It should be very easy for you to do it.

Don't applaud others killing these innocent human beings, if you are not willing to do it yourself. Don't be a coward and drop a bomb, or shoot from far away. Kill these humans face to face. Humans who are no different than you and never meant you any harm, but just slaves under the elite.

To anyone who claps like a seal, wanting a fish filled with human blood, you are a coward hiding behind the flag, and should go kill these humans you want dead, yourself!

Nationalism is no different than racism. Collective bullsh_t.

Ron Paul showed all these hypocrites to be chicken hawks, just as those who support them. Ron Paul did not run like the rest of these despicable so called humans,did during Vietnam.

Someday these irrational sheeple, will take a good look in the mirror and see themselves for who they truly are... and will never allow themselves to look in the mirror again because it will be too painful, but the mirror will always be there.

Who are the savages?..... think about it and you will see.

I love how he just ignored Brett and kept on talking when Brett tried to say time was up.

Ron Paul only quoting the Bible

It was disturbing to see how many supposed "christians" mocked Dr. Paul with his golden rule statement. He's only quoting the Bible.

Luke 6:31 And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.(KJV)

Matthew 7:12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. (KJV)

And just a reminder about God's Word:

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.(KJV)

My observation is that those

My observation is that those who call the loudest for war are those who have never served.

You are 100% correct

That is the truth.

this was a "show" last night, plain and simple

...it was a broadway production put on by the gop complete with stage props!

lew rockwell was on the "judge" last night talking about real issues that are affecting this country RIGHT now!

when the glitter from the "show" fades, the people of America will get back to these hard core problems that WILL be addressed

the charade can only distract for so long...today, the rubber meets the road!

to those of you that booed the "golden rule"...

of biblical proverbs, to those of you "romans" who scream for a pound of flesh from caesar, to those of you who continue to scream for war, I have two wishes

first, that its YOUR child, not mine, that goes to these wars and second, that you are happy with obombya in a second term

because I will be very HAPPY to serve obombya up to you in 2012

sure, the grinch's people were strategically placed under a boom microphone...thats the gop way

but, for you that choose war and detention, i will gladly, without hestitation, think ONLY of you (If Dr. Paul is not the nominee) when i stay home in november

i won't regret giving YOU obombya for ONE FREAKIN MINUTE!

These are the same people

that crucified Jesus for preaching "love thy neighbor as thyself."

I believe

that there were probably many many South Carolina residents that were shouting at their television last night. I have faith that "booing" the Golden Rule was not the popular opinion of South Carolina. I doubt the action at the polls will mirror what we just watched. I believe there are good people everywhere and their votes and voices have yet to be heard. I have faith in SC!!!

Boo Birds

Here's my answer: To all of you out there booing consider that when you cast your vote for endless war and slaughter you also support, ever bigger government, ever increasing deficits, the police state at home, a declining standard of living and more bankster bail-outs. It's not just a vote for more violence. It's a vote to prop up the entire rotten, corrupt edifice.

The booing of the Golden Rule is a Hot Topic

Did a google research on it and supposedly there are hundreds of mentions.


If it were possible the very elect would be deceived.

Certainly seems this bible passage is possible.

To me it seemed RP got a taste of how Jesus felt when the Israelites were screaming for the release of Barabas.

The very man who is fighting for there Freedom got booed.

Very sad moment.

I wonder how the Prince of Peace in Heaven looked down at this moment when his so called people booed a fellow Christian for standing for PEACE and the GOLDEN RULE.

RP hang in there.

The PEACE makers shall be called the sons of GOD.

Same thought went through my head

I thought the same thing. If those are Christians don't you know that you can count me out. I don't think that Jesus said that you should put a bullet through thy enemy's head. Or kill your enemies if you think your enemy might be thinking about killing you.

I agree with your comments

in general.

I have some issue with your use of the term "Israelite" which you use to descrbe Babylonian Pharisees and Jews.

Any Christian is considered to be a spiritual jew.

Galatians 3:26-28. Basically says we are of Abraham's seed and that there is no Jew or Greek, nor male or female, for we are all one in Christ Jesus. Anyway, the point is, if you truly are a Christian, then one will know that we are all spiritual Jews.

There is no such thing

as a "spiritual jew", and that verse does not say that there is.
That verse says that Christians are grafted into the line of Abraham, who had the promise. Abraham was not a "jew".
Jews will not enter the Kingdom, by definition of Christian theology. They deny Christ.
No Christians are "spiritual jews".

You might as well say there

You might as well say there are no physical jews, because the old covenant was ended 2,000 years ago.

Galatians 4:26
21Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law? 22For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman. 23But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise. 24Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar. 25For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children. 26But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Right. I agree.

Modern day jews are not related to the ancient Israelites, ad the old covenent is terminated anyway.
And they deny Christ.
So, they are devoid of both the old covenant and the new covenant.
Not an enviable position.

circumcision of the heart

The first Christians were true Jews who believed in the one true God. By faith alone.

Romans 2:29 But he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men but from God.

Rev. 3:9 Indeed I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but lie—indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you.

Look, I'm not going to attempt to

hijack this thread into a doctrine dissertation to try to correct you.
All I will say is that the only jews who will get in the Kingdom will come thru Christ, whom they deny.

Now on to the more pertinent part for this thread.

This is exactly the type of thing that has led to what we are seeing here in SC. It's in all the places where the flock has been misled like this, and then they worship the jew.
This is why we see the wars for Israel, and the complete zombification of these masses of deceived Christians.
And it comes from the Scofield Bible which most of these denominations and pastors use, which is false doctrine derived from Scofield's zionist margin notes.
The kind of teachings you refer to are precisely what has put us into this mess. Until people can learn enough to repudiate that kind of doctrine, they will perpetuate this deception like was exhibited last night.

What I quoted...

...was from the Bible, not from Scofield's notes.

I agree with you on dispensationalism. Don't know who you are referring to on that.


of course I know the passages.
It's the interpretations which I take issue with
Obviously, the Romans passage refers to "jews" but it means "converted jews" which are Christians. When you accept Christ, you are no longer a jew. You are a Christian.

The Revelation passage refers to "those who say they are jews but are not", and means exactly that. People who are not jews who say they are. And who are those people? They are the people who occupy Israel today, the "Ashkenazi Jews".
Why to I say this?
Because Ashkenaz is their progenitor, and he is in the line of Japheth, and not Shem, and so they are by definition not of the line of Abraham or Israel.
They are the ones who "say they are Jews, but are not".
It makes no statement that "those" who these non-jews will worship at the feet of, are "jews". People just imply that, incorrectly. They will worship at the feet of Jesus and the ones in the Kingdom with him. Christians.
