Ron Paul Is A Neoliberal? I thought he was a conservativeSubmitted by The Granger on Mon, 07/15/2013 - 22:34
I have used wikipedia for years as a resource:
I consider wikipedia nuetral, because it can be edited as long as the edits are backed up with references from established resources, encyclopedia, dictionary, thesaurus, the horse's mouth.
I believe it's important to have a NEUTRAL resource to make or defend one's position.
I also use wikipedia as a learning tool. Many times when someone posts something on DP I will check wiki for reference.
The other day in a conversation about, "what is a neocon", I thought I would use a wiki reference about what is a neoliberal, because personally, long before I ever heard of a neocon, I had heard of a neoliberal: Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton was all for a global government, and a global government was THE NEW NEO WORLD ORDER.
When Ron Paul began his campaign in 07, I clearly recall him refering to himself as a CONSERVATIVE. He talked about Austrian Economics. I NEVER heard Ron Paul ever say, Austrain Economics was NEOLIBERAL. Neoliberalism BTW is the ONLY ism that has any economic base.
So I go to wiki and do a search on NEOLIBERAL and Ron Paul and Autrain Ecinomics is all over it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neoliberalism
So then I checked out CONSERVATISM http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conservatism
I had to search to find CONSERVATISM IN THE UNTIED STATES to find Ron Paul http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conservatism_in_the_United_States
On NEOCONSERVATISM, read under: critcisms, and you'll find Ron Paul mentioned, but what's important to be is Buchanann's, because he mentions globalization, which is what it meant. Neoconservative was NOT about supporting Israel, yet, now, that is ALL it is about: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neoconservatism
I've heard Ron paul called a PALEOCONSERVATIVE and wiki lists: PALEOCONSERVATIVE as a new entry and there you will see some friends, Ron Paul is mentioned http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paleolibertarianism
LIBERTARIANISM: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libertarianism There is NO RON PAUL
So then I decided to look at Ron Paul in wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Ron_Paul&action=hi... He's all over the political map (one man for all parties).
And why not Rand Paul since he's not mentioned anywhere?
Oh My BREAKING NEWS Rand's wife KELLY PAUL just left her job at SGM GOP consulting firm http://www.politico.com/story/2013/07/kelley-paul-leaves-gop...
Back to wiki: RAND PAUL Rand has NO ISM http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rand_Paul
Ron Paul quoted Victor Hugo when he said: "no army can stop an idea that's time has come". https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Victor_Hugo&diff=...
I feel like there is a "book burning" going on with these wiki edits, and that there is an army that is changing ideas.
It was suggested that I spend a couple hours editing wiki. It would take me years and I doubt I could beat the army.
It was also suggested that I stop using wiki.. and that's fine.. except.. where do I go for a nuetral online reference?
And William Jefferson Clinton, the guy I was looking up as reference to NEOLIBERAL. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Clinton
I just learned the Bill Clinton is now known as a NEW DEMOCRAT
I never heard of a NEW DEMOCRAT before, though I did know that Obama came from a third party called THE NEW PARTY http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Party_(United_States)
And this article shows that there's a lot of editing and cover ups going on, http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/06/07/Obama-Cau...
Looks like wiki needs another edit.
So Ron Paul is a NEO Liberal, and some here say a NEOLIBERAL is the opposite of a NEOCONSERVATIVE.
