Ron Paul is a dangerous, DANGEROUS individual, and he must be stopped!

This subject line (and improvisational title to this forum) was emailed to me verbatim as a comment from a neocon, warmongering, Santorum-worshipping friend of mine.

Little did she know as to how I would respond (and that it would become the subject of a forum here LOL) but I think it got her attention and caused her to back down because she never responded.

My response to her comment, below. Enjoy:

[NOTE TO READERS: Please feel free to use this, and if necessary, use as your own if it needs to be presented that way as an editorial to a newspaper. Post it on your blogs. Pass it on to the Revolution Pac to be the basis of a video or a flyer or pass it on to the Campaign. I am not connected to anyone there so I would be honored however you decide to get the word out and start pushing back in defense of Dr. Paul...the finest presidential candidate to surface in modern times.]

Dangerous??

Yes. Dangerous…to the Republican and Democratic Establishments.

Dangerous…to all of the special interest empires such as the Military Industrial Complex, the Prison Industrial Complex, the Food, Agricultural & Chemical Complex, Medical & Entitlement Complex, the Financial Complex, Big Labor, Big Pharma, etc.

Dangerous…to things like Socialism, Fascism, Corporatism, the NDAA, the PATRIOT Act, the new HR 347 Act that makes free speech a felony, the UN Gun Control measures, Agenda 21, etc.

Dangerous…to unconstitutional government constructs, such as the Departments of Education, Commerce, Energy, and Housing & Urban Development, and that little 100-year old ponzi scheme called the Federal Reserve.

He is so very dangerous…that he has never accepted a penny from lobbyists…and lobbyists routinely ignore him because, as Jack Abramoff says “they know he can’t be bought.”

He is so very, VERY dangerous…that he wants to stop wasting billions of taxpayer money in foreign countries, bring the troops home to defend THIS country, and so very very dangerous...that he is the overwhelming choice of the troops, where they donate to his campaign more than ALL the other candidates combined, including Obama.

Yeah, a 76-year old OB-GYN who has delivered over 4,000 babies, who has written many books on dangerous things like liberty, life and private property and defending the constitution, been married and faithful to the same woman for 55 years, and who has rarely ever had to change his position on anything while in Congress because for the most part, he had it all right the first time…

Yeah he’s dangerous all right!

haha, I have been waiting for

haha, I have been waiting for someone to say something like that. Human ignorance can hardly compare to animal instinct. I think its our lack of animal instinct that makes us so ignorant.

Stop feeding the propaganda machine. Turn off your TV.

Very good point.

Well said. I will cease to insult sheep by calling stupid people "sheeple".

From now on, stupid people will be called "peeple."

Ignorant humans stand alone in the wild kingdom.

Survival for Dummies

I agree, Paulbot.

Nature's perfect survival strategies are progeny and the current winners of the best survival strategies from the beginning of time.

Whether us humans are in a political campaign or in complete denial that we face our own extinction, we continue to ignore Nature's "recipe book" for survival.

Survival for us is now just another reality show or making it to the next level in a beauty contest or making it to our next paycheck.

I raise sheep, donkeys, goats, chickens, geese and dogs. Yet, they are my best teachers and I am their grateful student.

I humbly apologize. Did not mean to insult the animals

You guys are right. Point talken. Don't drag the poor animals into this.

I love animals...and they deserve their dignity without being compared to the idiocy of homo sapiens.

So from now dumb blind following people are no longer called "sheeple."

They are called "peeple" LOL

Attention all you Santorum Peeple: Be careful because your leader might lead you off the cliff.

Thank you

Thank you for writing such an inspiring response to that e-mail and congratulations for gaining over +188 votes on this thread for sharing your wonderful story.

When I first heard "sheeple" years ago, I thought it was a clever play on words. But, I am not so impressed with it now.

I think the overuse of the term may be counter-productive to the goals of our campaign at this stage --not because it insults sheep, but because it may drive away some potential new supporters for Dr. Paul. IMO, it smacks of arrogance.

No apology is necessary. I do appreciate your humble and kind reply, though. I only attempted to bring a little humor to the discussion. My intent was certainly not to take your uplifting experience off-topic.

I am a 6 month old supporter of Dr. Paul

And I actually love the term "sheeple" I identified with it immediately.

Ex-neocon here.

But, like I said...I don't want to insult sheep. Perhaps what we need to be focusing on is the groupthink herd mentality stupidity of our own species.

When you look at Congress today...and how they sailed HR347 through without a hitch (RP abstained because he was not present but he would have voted no if he were)...when you look at Congress today...they are stupid, mumbling, bumbling herd.

Groupthink disorder is alive and well...among 'peeple'.

Yep, it's hard to reason with

Yep, it's hard to reason with the irrational. I think Santorum voters are a lost cause for this election and if Paul continues to rise he's probably gonna drive more voters in his direction.

Romney voters are probably easier to get, plus there are gonna be a lot of Gingrich voters up for grabs if he drops out. They have to be stopped from joining up with Romney or Santorum and reminded why they were angry enough to vote for Newt in the first place.

I Said it First

My dentist is a Mitten delegate. I looked at him and said "you know a vote for Romney is a vote for Obama". Got him!! He was speechless after that.

YES! That's how it done.

YES! That's how it done. Right on.. did you drop some infobombs on him while he was stunned?

Darn

No. I was so shocked that he was speechless I became speechless. I have to get my brain working faster. lol

Hehe doesn't matter. Shocking

Hehe doesn't matter. Shocking them is more than half the job. You wouldn't have convinced him on the spot, people don't work like that. He's probably already on the net. Looking up a good comeback and comparing Romney and Paul. Compare away, mr. Dentist and welcome to the flock.

Simply Fantastic!

Greatness

Great reply to an ignorant statement.

"Do right and risk the consequences”

Nice response. Help me with this one

My brother said "Ron Paul is just a white Obama". The sheer ignorance of that statement left me dumbfounded. The level of brainwashing is astounding. He listens to a lot of talk radio in his truck driving role. Pretty sure he listens to limbahhhh and hannity. Bleh!

Talk Radio

There are some GOOD talk radio shows out there in support of Ron Paul. I follow Robert Scott Bell at naturalnewsradio.com. He believes in health freedom, and understands that political freedom is an important foundation.

As for Ron Paul being a white Obama, your brother needs to listen to one of Ron Paul's speeches (any will work). Ron Paul believes what he says (unlike Obama), and he can back it up with his voting record.

Best of luck getting your brother to see the light!

Good lord

"Ron Paul is just a white Obama" might be the goofiest thing I've heard the entire primary so far.

Never heard that one before...

That is truly one of the most ignorant, nonsensical things I have ever heard.

Ron Paul is the Anti-Obama.

I would ask him to cite his reasons for saying that. There is no way he can defend his position because its nonsense.

Be ready to be armed with the facts...and use them against him!

Hey

if you decide to make a video, I would be glad to clean up or modify photos, and add text or illustrations. I'll leave it up to you to brainstorm what those should be and the look that you want, but I think that the images should be complimentary rather than literal, and should resonate with neocons.

I would be honored!

Let me know how I can help!

Yes let's do this!

Great comment

What a stupid email to send - "Ron Paul is dangerous" that's absurd. I'm sorry but your friend must be a complete moron. Maybe a nice moron though, they can be as long as you don't bring up any intellectual subjects and just talk about the beach, food, sports and cars etc.

Great response!

Awesome.

She was probably hoping you would say that Rick Satorum voted to raise the debt ceiling 5 times so she could correct you that it was only 4.

There's no responding to this, just as there is no using Ron Paul's impeccable record against him. Truly great work sir! This should be published as a letter to the editor in one or all of the major news outlets that has crapped on the the good Dr.

I would also like to hear Judge Napolitano read it aloud.

Stop feeding the propaganda machine. Turn off your TV.
