Jesse Benton: "I absolutely love all of Dr. Paul's supporters" (via EPJ)

Jesse Benton has given an interview to the Keynesian, gold-hating, Business Insider, on his new role as campaign head for Senator Mitch McConnell. McConnell is a total statist, who regularly takes positions against liberty.

In August 2007, the creep McConnell introduced the Protect America Act of 2007, which allows the National Security Agency to monitor certain telephone and electronic communications inside and outside the United States without obtaining a warrant.

On April 21, 2009, McConnell delivered a blistering speech to the Senate criticizing United States President Barack Obama's then-plans to close the Guantanamo.

McConnell voted for the initial War in Iraq, has supported the "troop surge", and opposed a timetable for withdrawal from the country.

During the BI interview this exchange took place:

BI: So if you had the chance to address the Ron Paul Universe, how would you address any criticism that you have sold out Ron Paul to take a position with the GOP Establishment?

Benton: First of all, I absolutely love all of Dr. Paul's supporters. I admire every single one of them for the different things that they bring to the table.

My position is a bit different — I believe that everyone should pursue their passions, and be where they can best make a difference. Where I believe I can make a difference is to help bring the voice of the Liberty Movement and the voice of the Tea Party into a governing coalition. Some people want to work outside of the system, some people want to be 100% rigid — I view what I want to do is try to work with people who want to take our ideas seriously. I want to try to get as many of our ideas as I can included in the solution.

To HELL with the SIL!!!

Benton you are no Ben Franklin

"What I want to do is try to work with people who want to take our ideas seriously. I want to try to get as many of our ideas as I can included in the solution."

Benton, you are no Ben Franklin and these usurpers in office that you are now supporting are not George the third. But,,, a lesson can be had here for anyone who understands what it took to achieve liberty.
Maybe a more appropriate comparison to the first American struggle for freedom and its players would be Benedict Arnold...

What's a revolution after all without a few turncoats even at the highest levels...

The very scary question is finally, is history on an unstoppable path to repeating itself in this matter??? I fear,I fear...

Benton is a greasy liar. I can't stand the sight of him.

What a poor excuse for a human being.

It would behoove Ron Paul to have a serious talk with his granddaughter and get her away from this piece of trash named Jesse Benton. She's still young, and she can have a much more fulfilling life with someone who actually believes in the Constitution, not tyranny.

He loves to destroy their effort, he loves to lave at them.

He likes to rub it in their faces, like this.

precisely

Benton is a Traitor...

Benton is a traitor to the Revolution, and should be treated as such.
I shall do any and all things in my power to disrupt, confuse and defeat the work he does for his not so new masters.

Get ready for a nasty fight you Traitor...

Evidently, Benton Primarily Sees the Restoration of the Republic

as a vehicle for furthering his personal ambitions. In other words, principle equals money in Benton's world. Benton is definitely an opportunist with a capital "O".

Farewell

Benedict Arnold! I hope the door hits you on the way out.

Luv you too Jesse! The Fringe

I agree with his statement

I agree with his statement and strategy.

I don't agree with how he treated people or having the campaign make intentionally mistakes to employ his long-term strategy. He could easily have worked for the Establishment after the campaign and still treated everyone fairly.

He worked to destroy the grassroots.

He was successful and now he will be at it again in Kentucky.

Free includes debt-free!

And Then Benton Concludes

the interview by saying emphatically, "Now donate to my fund Biatch, mama needs a new pair of shoes"

"I love them--their money is delicious."

*burp* Pass the PACs, please.

SUPPORT OUR FOUNDERS' AMERICA
Support the Constitution of the United States

A very appropriate analogy in

A very appropriate analogy in Benton's case, apparently.

Pass the Big PACs, please. *burp*
