Ron Paul TWEETS About SEAL Sniper's Chris Kyle's Death: 'He that lives by the sword dies by the sword'

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

Ron Paul ✔ @RonPaul

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.
5:05 PM - 04 Feb 13

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.

It might be therapeutic in a controlled setting, as a form of systematic desensitization, but not how it occurred.

I am.

That is exactly what I am saying. Not everyone, but for some. It helped me.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.



The political correctness fairies are like, totally offended!!

The best part about this is that Dr. Paul served his time in the military- as a healer.

If ignorant masses are offended by the blunt truth, that is their problem.

Welcome back to the spotlight Dr. Paul. I missed hearing your opinions, you bad motherfucker.


the snookis on this site need to put cotton in their ears and c0k in thier mouths and stfu.
They are saying things that were never said here and take things way out of context. "westboro baptist"... "soldiers are murdering scum"..
lil ho NJCARLOS.
acting like little beeaches when they cant stand to hear the truth.

and its not "ignorant masses"
its one, two or three little ho's, the masses agree with Dr. Paul- just look at the upvotes and whose comments were buried.

Oh, and by the way, your boy

Oh, and by the way, your boy Rand Paul is an undercover neoconservative that'll gladly invade Iran if "diplomacy fails" (lol). I'd love to see your brain explode when that happens.


oh and btw,
hillaries phat waffle is free for your nose to be inserted, wait till your head explodes from the stench.

You mad? :D

You mad? :D

I meant the ignorant masses external to the DailyPaul.

Thousands of comments on the MSM.

Chris Kyle...

was clearly a twisted SOB. Heroes, to say nothing of Christians, would not promote and publicize their kills. Snipers are necessary in war, but they are not to be canonized. These are the people who wait in the shadows, out of the line of fire. Im sickened that the news is playing up this mans death, as if we've really lost a hero? Compared to who?

With no elections to win, I hope he continues to speak his brilliant mind- who cares what others think-
TELL THE TRUTH even if it hurts some feelings!

Ron Paul is AWESOME!

Ron Paul is speaking for the thousands who have committed suicide rather then follow unconstitutional orders.

as Nuremberg taught the world, "I was only following orders" IS NO DEFENSE

Rand Paul 2016

You're right!

With this brilliant statement, Ron has won over half a dozen people on the Daily Paul!

What an awesome PR move! Just Ron's style to sell the message this way.

I hope he comes out next and tells the world how Martin Luther King was a commie agent who deserved what he got. That'd win over, like, maybe 14 people on Stormfront! Go Ron!


Ron Paul doesnt seek to win over anyone, YOU DO.
He seeks the truth and tells it whether you agree with it and like it or
It is YOUR COMMENTS and the other water carrier for you that get BURIED.
Or cant you READ?

while you stand with the MEDIA!lol

Have fun.

Ron Paul has ran his own

Ron Paul has ran his own Twitter account since he left Congress. This was him. It sounds just like something he would say too: the cold, hard truth without regard to who it may offend.!/cevans93


He won't even personally attack Bernanke. He always says talk about the philosophy, not individuals. But now, just as he's getting ready to launch a media enterprise, and as Rand is gaining ground, he comes out and alienates everyone to the right of Michael Moore with a brutal judgement on an individual.

Seems to me like the fix is in.

For those that follow this line of thinking...

Be standup individuals and go protest military funerals with the Westboro Baptist Church. Go do it, because there is no difference.

Everyone that I've spoken with on this site who supports the message that appeared on Dr. Paul's page believe ALL MILITARY SOLDIERS ARE GUILTY for the decisions (and intent) of their superiors. You can only extrapolate then, that you SUPPORT WHAT THE WESTBORO BAPTIST CHURCH IS DOING.

To suggest otherwise is intellectually dishonest!

I'm not. I think the

I'm not. I think the military is fine when used for defense and I have no problem with the guy doing the job he said he would do. The problem I have with him is that he liked killing and had no remorse. It just tells you the kind of person he was. He was a liar and psychopath. Good riddance.


You are wrong and are misguided.
As Nuremberg taught THE WORLD, "I was only following orders" IS NO DEFENSE!

I could care less about the

I could care less about the trials of another nation. For me? Intent or bust.

You're the type to send a man to prison for life based off a gut feeling.

The type to judge someone before their trial has even commenced.

You're no better than the Westboro Baptist Church.

You apparently believe that if someone is guilty, they deserve whatever is coming to them, without due process to demonstrate such guilt.

We'll agree to disagree.


make no mistake.
I disagreed with those trials in Nuremberg.
We should and WILL have the next ones RIGHT HERE where they will not get away like they did in Nuremberg.

The establishment will be praying for their trials to be moved from DC to Nuremberg.
Wont happen.
We will give them trials right here and let them see the true power of American Justice.
Theyre coming, it wont be long.
America LOVES her trials.

LoL my local Rag-Views-Paper

LoL my local Rag-Views-Paper is ablaze how Ron is unamerican and a fool.

Southern Agrarian

Ron is right

This guy wasn't drafted, he went an invaded another country without justification and killed those people trying to repel the invaders. I'm all for protecting our country when attacked, we weren't attacked by Iraq, Afghanistan or anyone since WWII. That being said I feel sorry for his family, but not so much for him.

The bold effort the present bank had made to control the government ... are but premonitions of the fate that await the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it-Andrew Jackson

Three possibilities

1. It wasn't tweeted by Ron Paul, it was some jackasss working for him, and there will be a retraction and explanation

2. It was done strategically and there will be some kind of follow up.

3. Ron's losing it.

I suspect sabotage. This waaay outside Ron's attitude and style.


Ron ABSOLUTELY said that.

That was the fourth probability you forgot to mention.

With no elections to win, Ron will be speaking his mind from now on, LIKE IT OR NOT.

"OH NO! He has a SON?" Neoconservatives and Liberals EVERYWHERE!

Rand Paul 2016

Think about that.

With all the things going on right now, this is certainly an odd time and place for Ron to bust loose with his inner thoughts. The first part may be true, we have a mercenary army now and that puts you at real risk of dying "by the sword."But the kicker is the second line... It just is not true. Below, I related my personal experience, and the more I think about it...
If gunfire is what is making this guy have an inappropriate "fight or flight" reaction, exposure to the stimulus in an environment where he could be in control of the stimulus might be very good therapy.
It just does not sound like RP to me, and if it is him, it is disappointing. I had hoped he might express just a bit of curiosity about 9-11, now that most of the people who wrote the "Commission Report" have said THEY don't believe the official story. If this is his idea of cutting loose, it leaves me wanting.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.


Ron knows, you can really sell liberty by spitting on the memory of people's dear departed heroes.....Yes, I see your point.

I hope he does come out and

I hope he does come out and clarify that it wasn't his sentiments. Then we can see just how vengeful and misguided some Daily Paulers are.


and I assume you will be feeling STUPID when he does NO SUCH THING.

"OH NO! He has a SON?" Neoconservatives and Liberals EVERYWHERE!

Rand Paul 2016

Stupid? No. Disillusioned?

Stupid? No. Disillusioned? Yes. But it'll be for the better, because I know where he stands and I can refrain from supporting anything he does hereafter.
