FOX News Thinks Rand Paul and the Constitution are More To The Left Than Obama.


http://youtu.be/2H3cXOU2oDI

Not that I need to tell anyone here, but this is exactly why people should not be watching FOX News.

Complete misinformation.

I wonder how many FOX News institutionalized NEO-CON conservatives Said..."He's more to the left of Obama, I ain't voting for that liberal."

Rand Paul's nolan chart

Rand Paul's nolan chart (http://www.nolanchart.com/) is borderline conservative/libertarian and just a tad more towards libertarian.
So he is not far left or far right,he is forward right.
How about using that to determine someones political views?
Forward,backwards,left and right.By the way Obama is backwards left,the opposite of his slogan "forward".Are you surprised?

Comments regarding Jefferson

Jefferson was a classical libertarian, and had nothing to do with the modern day conservative system. This is often distinguished with the title of "classical liberal" for Franklin Roosevelt. "Classic Republican" for someone like Grant. This is a labeling system used to simplify complex issues. Ironically, as I type this, I hear Rand saying the same things.

I mean who was Grover Cleveland, who was part of the Democratic party, but by todays standards, a conservative?

Why was Theodore Roosevelt writing to the police chief of the NYPD, on record, that he was running a corrupt police force, while also writing to the Congress about protecting public lands being essential for future of America? Was he a "liberal tree-hugger"?

This guy interviewing Rand Paul is part of the jack-ass party. He attacked Clinton over 9-11, when the interview was supposed to be about humanitarian relief overseas.

When you have Pat Sajack from Wheel of Fortune and Geraldo Rivera on the same network, you are no longer a news organization. Its that simple. FOX is a joke.

False right and left paradigm

Yes there is left and right, but there is also up and down. On the top there is authoritarianism and centralism. At the bottom there is quite the opposite. Droning America isn't liberal or conservative its authoritarian and insane.

Faux News is a Zionist Controlled

propaganda machine, that uses Trotskyite philosophy, which if far left and attempts to sell it as Conservatism. War is and always has been a Leftist philosophy, as well as the construction of a central government controlled police state. People you need to study the Bolshevik Revolution and it's contruction of the Totalitarian Soviet state, and quick being mislead by Hitler and the Third Reich. The Third Reich was a result of a suppressive state, and the Bolsheviks progressed into a extreme suppressive state.

Fox News is on the left side of Liberty.

They are also on the right side of Karl Marx. Fox News fair and balanced NOT.

And Rush Limbaugh said that Obama is a better president...

...than Ron Paul would have been.

I HEARD HIM SAY IT with my OWN two ears.

One of these days I'm going to call his dumb-ass show and make him explain why he made that statement - in early 2012 after one of the republican debates is when Limbaugh said it.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

Well, yes they are!!


Obama is the guy who wants to JAIL whistleblowers, Start Illegal Wars of Aggression, Wiretap All Citizens, Maintain Kill Lists, Fly Drones to murder everywhere, Bail Out Private Banks and Crooks, Murder, through the CIA, the socialist-anti-War leader Hugo Chavez (who reduced poverty rates in half in his Country), makes cuts in Social Security (the only "Democrat" to ever wish for this), and promote massive War propaganda, and completely demolish The Bill of Rights.

There is nothing remotely progressive or "left wing" about such an agenda. It is all completely right-wing, and Corporatist-Fascist Reich-Wing.

So yes, Obama is clearly very far, far to the right of The U.S. Constitution, and also to the right of Rand Paul -- who at least has some respect for International Law.



Dude, what a waste of front page space.

“Contradictions do not exist. Whenever you think that you are facing a contradiction, check your premises. You will find that one of them is wrong.” ― Ayn Rand

NO MORE LIES. Ron Paul 2012.

I didn't read all the

I didn't read all the comments here, but I read a little past Liberty Forever's comment, a keen comment. I'm wondering if I'm the only person who sees this interview (which is elsewhere on the DP) as genius on Rand's part and Wallace's.

Rand's, because he didn't shake his head affirmatively and, especially, negatively while Wallace was trying to brand him. Rand listened and listened then spoke his piece. And he spoke it smooooothly, I recall. He was RP-esque, using the left-right paradigm against itself to discuss this issue in the right-wrong light, the moral light.

Wallace, well, he handed video fodder to us to show well meaning democrats that Rand's in their corner on this issue, this issue being how all issues are, nonpartisan and sensical.

Dems and Repubs are unitiiiiiing. :)

*Whistles happily* RP being RP.

EDIT: galenrog, a few commentators below, noticed Rand discarded the left-right paradigm. His comment has a few up arrows, too. He and I aren't the only ones who saw Rand roll over the falsehood.

Wow, dems and repubs are uniting?

No more two party pretending? Man, that is a reason to whistle a happy tune.

Well. I'm for the uniting if

Well. I'm for unity if it's because comprehension caused it. If unity is a rush to judgement, this togetherness will be short lived because the realization of difference comprehension will explode into anger about what to do; and the intellectual void in the parties will enable the bad guys to reclaim influence at least rhetorically for the worst policies of both parties, translating to us, freedom-loving people, losing force in those parties that share libertarian ideals such as no war and no police state (dems) and property rights and the free market (repubs), although I believe the standard republican is ignorant what the free market is and often uses it interchangeably with capitalism.

I don't want to see unity for unity's sake. I want it for the right reason, because doing it for the right reason doesn't waste time and effort and backfire. So, we shall see.

The LEFT RIGHT paradigm...

...is soo 2003.

Its 2013. Ten years later. Get over it.

The left right paradigm is an Hegelian dialectic (and classic Iluminati technique) distraction to tear a society apart.

The KEY for all of us...is to search for the truth. And ignore the propaganda.

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

Chris Wallace: Democrat NeoCon

On October 11, 2006, The Washington Post revealed that Wallace had been a registered Democrat for more than two decades. Wallace explained his party affiliation in terms of pragmatism, insisting that being a Democrat is the only feasible means of participating in the political process in heavily Democratic Washington, D.C.

Good Interview

Chris Wallace gave Dr Paul an opportunity to state his position on a variety of topics. An opportunity to demonstrate the fallacy of the left/right paradigm was probably my favorite part. Thanks to Chris Wallace for allowing time to Dr Paul.

Remember the debates

Chris Wallace is possessed by the demon of stupidity. It may take many enlightened individuals capable of treating and curing men like Mr. Wallace.
