Tom Woods: History will remember the Genius of Ron Paul vs. a Confederacy of Dunces!

The Dunces Are Against Him

May 2, 2013

Some of the faces are out of date (the 2012 GOP presidential contenders seem rather unlikely to be remembered by history), but in light of the viciousness toward Ron Paul over the past several weeks, I thought this was appropriate.

Tom Woods

in my internet hero!

"Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect" - Mark Twain

South Carolina can't be all bad...

I understand that the S.C. legislature essentially nullified Obamacare!

I wonder how that happened? Who persuaded them to do that?

It is not the only state to have done that.

They may not have used the term nullification. What they did was to prohibit any bill necessary to enact ObamaCare.

See: www.tenthamendmentcenter.com

you would think the doctors would be the ones to fight this, after all it enslaves them.

In principle, the supreme court claimed that forcing a citizen to buy health insurance is constitutional.
I am waiting for Obama to announce that doctors planning to close their practices must get permission from the State first!

"Today, when a concerted effort is made to obliterate this point, it cannot be repeated too often that the Constitution is a limitation on the government, not on private individuals- that it does not prescribe the conduct of private individuals, only the

Genius and Prophet

Dr. Paul is more than a genius in my book, I hope he will also be remembered as a prophet too.
Look back at all his predictions from decades ago and see how accurate those words are today.
I also hope history will remember how South Carolina "booed"
THE GOLDEN RULE.

Shame on S.C. for booing the Good Doctor.

If you add them all up

The confederacy of dunces doesn't add up to the dirt under Ron Paul's shoes.

Keep in mind history is not

Keep in mind history is not always about truth..... The winners write history.

I imagine less and less is in print. Kinda spooky too think a few edits in digital and it can be rewritten.

I was a math winner in HS because you can't dispute facts

To my history teacher I was a complete fail. Was never sure why until it hit me in my late 30's.

Hopefully there are lots of me out there like that. :)

BUMP. No offense to Tom, but

No offense to Tom, but he is only stating the obvious, IMO. :)

I'm so done with Tom Woods.

It's all the same BS. If somebody disagrees, insult their intelligence.

That's all a phony is capable of once they realize their ideas are indefensible. Not once have I implied Anarchists lack intelligence. They're highly intelligent people trying to get those they see as "dunces" dancing to their tune.

How's that whole secession thing going for you guys? Are the dunces not following you like they should be?

Done with him, are you?

I'm sorry, but I get the sneaking suspicion that you never really ever started with Tom Woods, so being done with him isn't possible. If you don't understand the concept of secession, you don't understand freedom, and if you think Woods stating the obvious by calling morons like Rachel Maddow and Rush Limbaugh stupid is somehow phony, you are definitely cut from a similar grain.

Then again, maybe I'm stupid because I'm using logic on an admitted troll. My apologies.

Joη, apparently this is your first

encounter with FreedomsReigning. He apparently is quite a disturbed individual, who is on a personal hate campaign against anyone and anything he considers "anarchistic." Ironically this includes Ron Paul.

He has made what a more paranoid individual than myself could consider personal threats to several people on this site, including myself. I don't believe in censoring people just for nastiness, but you may wish to read all his posts and comments, and determine for yourself whether he is out of line.

Yes.

FreedomsReigning is without a doubt, the most consistently idiotic and abrasive poster on this website.

I wholeheartedly agree with your sentiment.

I would also urge Jon to look through his long list of completely wrong headed and needlessly abrasive tirades known as his comment history.

It's one thing to be ignorant, it's another to be loudly and viciously ignorant.

I think Ron

is a Minarchist not an anarchist. Not that I am defending the angry statist up there.

My threats?

What threats? You're a liar.

Justice is not a threat. When you face justice, you bring it upon yourself.

Your brand of "justice"

is quite repugnant to me. You seem to believe that those in the government have a right to imprison me or possibly even execute me for having a peaceful political opinion which you disagree with.

Have you ever heard of the Nazis? You seem to be reading from their playbook.

Living as an Enlightened Leader~17th verse of the Tao Te Ching

With the greatest leader above them, people barely know one exists. Next comes one whom they love and praise. Next comes one whom they fear. Next comes one whom they despise and defy. When a leader trusts no one, no one trusts him. The great leader speaks little. He never speaks carelessly. He works without self-interest and leaves no trace. When all is finished, the people say, "We did it ourselves." "Truth is treason in the empire of lies."
LONG LIVE THE R3VOLUTION !!!!

So Tom Woods called us a confederacy of dunces?

When and where did he say that?

Just this once, I'll ask an Anarchist for a link.

If the shoe fits

If you follow Mittens, Mclame, and all those other laughing monkeys, then yeah your a dunce!!!

All you're going to get is hurt.

"If you follow Mittens, Mclame, and all those other laughing monkeys, then yeah your(lol) a dunce!!!"

Dunces and now monkeys too aye?

So why would all those dunces and monkeys give a shit what you think? I know I don't.

Someday history will show that it was just as big a mistake to support anybody from the Paul family. He's Anarchist fraud and user just like the rest of you people who thought you could get "the monkey dunces" dancing to your tune.

All you're going to get is hurt.

Uh?

If you don't care what he thinks, why are you still typing responses to him in a desperate attempt to get the last word in? Get some therapy.

Hurts So Good

We are the future and I could care less what you think, you treasonous troll, I have supported Dr. Paul for 15 years ,I was in his district! Keep drinking the Kool-Aid and buying the propaganda, you can join your laughing monkeys in the trash bin of history!!(lol)
