Ron Paul's Tweet was perfect timingSubmitted by ecard71 on Tue, 02/05/2013 - 16:21
Sometimes you need to "smack people", "dump a bucket of ice water", or "hit 'em over the head with a 2x4" in order to "smack some sense into them" and "get them thinking" - which is the objective. In the age of over sensitive - political correctness, society(or sheep if you will) as a whole has always CHOSEN to play it safe, follow the crowd, and say/do the "appropriate thing" at the "appropriate time".
Well in this case, sentiments are(as usual) running high. The result? Its gotten MORE publicity and MORE people talking and debating. Those that condemned Dr. Paul probably never supported or understood him, or his foreign policy in the first place.
I have no doubt in my mind that many of our military members, including Chris Kyle, believe with all their heart that they are doing the "right thing". That they are fighting terrorism and for freedom. As misguided as they are - that is simply not the case. They invaded and took over a country that had not attacked us. What better time than to have the most highly decorated military member for having the most kills - be made an example of what is wrong with that interventionist mentality? The mentality of glorifying an invader/murderer? Chris Kyle was basically made into the poster boy of what every soldier should strive to be. Never mind what any human being(or dare I say & categorize Christians, Conservatives, etc) should strive to be. Fact is, sometimes the truth hurts and you have to call a spade a spade. I think if anything other than stirring up some controversy, this has gotten people thinking and awoken some people up.
Ron Paul's Tweet was perfectly timed.
