Who Killed Rudy Giuliani?

You guessed it.

The American Conservative: When Ron Paul leaves office in January, he will have been more successful than many of the legislators who spent decades maligning him. Paul’s ideas have gradually gone from marginal to mainstream, and his record shows how much even a single determined man of principle can do to change a movement. In foreign policy especially, the Texas congressman leaves behind a new generation of leaders, both libertarian and conservative, who challenge the disastrous bipartisan consensus.

A decade ago, only seven Republican members of Congress voted against the Iraq War—six congressmen and one senator. The number of conservative legislators who opposed the war was even smaller still, the redoubtable trio of Jimmy Duncan, John Hostettler, and Paul.

The other dissenters were moderate to liberal Republicans representing districts where George W. Bush and any policy he proposed—much less sending young Americans to die in a war of choice—would have been deeply unpopular. Lincoln Chafee, the only GOP senator to vote against the authorization of force, was the son of the last great Rockefeller Republican and easily his party’s most liberal member of Congress. Connie Morella of Montgomery County, Maryland represented the most Democratic congressional district held by a Republican.

for you die hard rand fans....

These few words sum up why so many in the liberty movement have been scorned by him.

"... and his record shows how much even a single determined man of principle can do to change a movement..."

Ron never played politics and I amongst many followers of his record loved him for it.
Rand isn't fitting that bill

Just remember when you say " but ron wouldn't have won because he didn't play ball..." blah blah blah....

From a nobody to an icon Ron Paul!

Great story! Every word was read very slowly.

Giuliani has become irrelevant.

Dr. Ron Paul killed any chance Giuliani

had to leave a mark when he destroyed him in the 2008 GOP debates.

The best thing to do regarding that neocon hack is for all of us to let the name Giuliani fade into history as the nobody he really was.

A very good article to share...

...with Republican friends or family during the mourning and confusion they are going through right now.

Changing position - or the same all along?

Guiliani recently came out and said he did not run this year because he did not think the Republican base was ready to accept his pro-choice views and he would lose the nomination.

He also said that the Republican Party needs a conservative foreign policy, a fiscally conservative policy, and a libertarian social policy to win another general election.

When he was governor here in New York he took down the mafia by installing microphones in parking meters. I mean, I don't know about this guy...

Governor? Seriously?

Mayor of NYC and federal prosecutor, perhaps but, governor... Uh, no.

I do know about that guy and I wouldn't trust him as far as I could throw a 20 ton rock. There is more to his mafia wars than the public is allowed to know. Just ask a NYC firefighter about that hypocrital freak.

Mayor.. sorry about that.

Rudy

Guiliani got all sorts of cred because he was on the street at ground zero, walking with a handkerchief on his mouth. But no one asked him this question: Rudy, WHERE ARE YOU GOING?? The fact is, he was wandering the streets because his emergency communications HQ was destroyed in the WTC!! He stupidly placed that site in the biggest terrorist target in the city against all advice to the contrary! I'm not sayin' he's a stupid jackass because that would be an insult to jackasses (they're no that stupid) For an interesting read on matters that are related to FAA culpability prior to 911 -

Great read!

Thanks for posting, that was a great read and I recommend it!

What a great memory! BUT....

At least an equally shining Ron Paul moment in my eyes is this smackdown of retard Carl Cameron, questioning his electability:

I still get emotional every time I see this 2 minute clip. If you've never seen it, YOU MUST go see it now.

Neoconservatives Are Alive But NOT Well

Willard Romney was a one-term Governor of Massachusetts. Even after all the "gavage" or force feeding by "the lame stream media" streamed constantly for month after month, Mitt LOST. Who was unelectable? The corporation known as Romney. THANKS GOP! You soulless sellouts. You wanted anyone but Obama or Ron Paul, right? You were worried Ron Paul would ruin the Republican Party. Have fun with Obama. The blood is on your hands. You hacks wanted Barabbas and you got Satan instead.

"The founders would be ashamed of us for what we're putting up with." Ron Paul

"For the country to get better, it needs more than just politicians. Politicians aren't enough. It needs a resurgence through churches, through revivals, through a spiritual

Wow

I've never seen that one... it makes you want to reach through the screen and whack Cameron over the head.

Ron Paul convert from the Heart of Dixie

Can you imagine...

being in front of a huge audience, not to mention millions viewing TV, and be humiliated with a question like that, hearing the audience laugh at you, and keeping your composure enough to come up with a reply like that?

I can't. Glad you took the time to watch that Angie.

'Cause there's a monster on the loose

I loved

that one too...........and so did the audience!

ahhh.... My favorite "Ron Paul Moment"

I wonder how he felt? 30 years of shouting that message alone... I like to think we gave him a little of the hope he gave us that night.

Now, tell me, will Mitt ever see this kind of crowd response in his lifetime? Not until he comes to the light.

I've Seen It Many Times But...

...I still love watching it. One of the greatest moments for our greatest statesman.

How soon many forget that we came as close as we did

despite all that they tried. We can do it again and this time, as long as we pick someone with the same message, we could double what we did here.

Liberty is catching on and we have the fascists to thank in part.. Their arrogance and domineering ways have pushed our message forward like nothing else I've ever seen in my lifetime.

Great article.. I needed that today.

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

It isn't just the same message but character and having

actual credibility.

But we definitely need to grow those sorts of candidates.

Integrity means having to say things that people don't want to hear & especially to say things that the regime doesnt want to hear -RonPaul

Yes, that's just as important

Thanks for bringing it up.

Homeland security statement: patriotism is now considered terrorism.
I love www.isidewith.com shared it with everyone I know. If anything they realize its not just a red and blue idiot running for reelection.

in the next 4 years...

we will become the Republican Party! Bringing it back to the Robert "Mr Republican" Taft represented!

We show what Real CONSERVATIVES are! What Barry "Mr. Conservative" Goldwater showed!
