Former congressman and libertarian icon Ron Paul tweeted a startling reaction to the death of SEAL sniper Chris Kyle on Monday:

Chris Kyle's death seems to confirm that "he who lives by the sword dies by the sword." Treating PTSD at a firing range doesn't make sense.

Kyle and a friend were both killed by a veteran struggling with PTSD while working with him at a gun range on Saturday.

The former Marine, Eddie Ray Routh, turned his weapon on the other two men and shot them at close range, according to news accounts.

Who writes Ron Paul's tweets?

I find it hard to believe that he finds time for that.

It's common for any of us to die doing what we normally do. It might be argued that Kyle died helping a fellow soldier. Sniping makes a lot more sense than indiscriminate bombing or sanctions.

Also, we have to realize that the current propaganda war is not about guns- it's about the "mentally ill." Who is REALLY qualified to diagnose that?

Who Writes Anybodies TWEETS?

LOL..

Ron Paul tweeted?

Really? He whipped out his iPad4, wardrove a hotspot, tweeted and then updated his facebook page? And spent his day tylping XD XD lolz OMFG like no way?

It's believable cause it's so in character.

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.

Smudge

You are so synical - no he didnt whip out the ipad4 - he has his iphone mounted on the bike silly.

What else is he supposed to do - have you ever ridden a bike that far - it is REALLY boring!!!

Nice to see someone not browbeaten by military

I'm so sick of the psychological intimidation that goes on everywhere. If you believe it, say it, and stand by your words. I agree with his post and I don't care what the military thinks about it. I don't wish anyone death but I'm not bowing down to these stormtroopers either.

I Couldn't Believe It Either smudge Pot...

WOW!! 'Those that 'LIVE' by the sword, die by the sword..'
