Ron Paul Live In-Person DePauw University Tuesday 9/10/13 7:30pm

"Thomas Jefferson lives. He's Ron Paul," declared presidential biographer and author Doug Wead. On Tuesday, September 10, Dr. Paul -- a three-time presidential candidate and former congressman -- will come to the campus to deliver a Timothy and Sharon Ubben Lecture, "Our Lives, Your Liberty & America's Future."

The speech will begin at 7:30 p.m. in Kresge Auditorium, located within DePauw's Green Center for the Performing Arts (605 S. College Avenue Greencastle, IN). As with all Ubben Lectures, the event is presented free of admission charge and the public is invited.

I hope to see some of our Daily Paul friends there!

Ron Paul and DePauw: Guilty by association
By TDP Editorial Board
Published: Tuesday, September 10, 2013
Updated: Tuesday, September 10, 2013 20:09

Rep. Ron Paul is well known for his laissez-faire governmental stance as a Libertarian. He has served 11 terms in Congress dating back to 1976 and he has run for president three times. Supporters applaud his individualist views on the importance of liberty, low taxes and a limited constitutional government. However, Paul is known for more than just these beliefs.

** The most hilarious part? They can't find ONE thing he said, that they're actually accusing him of; in the same verbal vomit, it's merely peppered with the usual:

While Paul has denied responsibility for these articles...

Although Paul has not directly stated that he yields these views...

And check out this double-speak goodness:

This critique of Paul is neither a reflection of the editorial board’s political views nor a refusal to be open minded about the freedom of speech and thought. This is not a political attack.

But, the following should be most hilariously enraging to any r3VOL; these TDP Editorial Board morons actually had the temerity to smear, lie and infer that Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul, who has been exposing the murderous CON of the Trotskyite NeoConservatives,

who are the heir to the ideological lineage of Carl Schmitt, a REAL, bona fide-Nazi jurist and his most prized pupil, one Leo Strauss, the founder of the U of Chicago Neo-'Conservatism,' which is occupied by nothing more than Trotskyite infiltrators/5th Column in the American conservative movement, is Ron HIMSELF a "neoCon" by citing William 'Fake-Douchey-American NE Establishment-'English'-accent Mr. CIA' Buckley, as their 'proof'!!!! OMFG LOLOLOLOL:

Even Paul’s fellow conservatives have derided the ideas that he supports. William F. Buckley, founder of the conservative political magazine, the National Review, said of neoconservative ideologies, “It has been by no means unanimous in the belief that conservatism consists in that kind of evangelistic extreme.” In other words, critiquing these ideologies is not synonymous with critiquing conservatism.

That idiocy alone makes any moronically vacuous declarative statements made by them, utterly null and void. What credibility do geopolitically imbecilic, uneducated, misinformed, L v. R fake-'liberally' brainwashed college students have?

Further punctuating their irony of their bigoted ironies:

As a campus we should be open-minded about ideas. We should appreciate intellectual diversity. But, there are some mindsets that are harmful. If the university was searching for a speaker to diversify the palette, there are hundreds of credible messengers of conservative principles that could have been chosen. In an educational environment, there are standards that have to be set.

LOL!!! WHERE? From what friggin' planet do these delusional pimple-faced brainwashed, hyper-doublespeaking kids come from?? Just when you think the millennials are truly waking up, above statements make apparently, they've yet to develop any original thought, nor geopolitical discernment process.


You know there's something wrong with the world, when a man who's been preaching peace and prosperity, consistently for over FIVE-decades, with fully publicly verifiable records to match, is constantly attacked. But luckily, there are plenty more awake minds at DePauw; check out the ripping rebuttals to the moronic OpEd:

Editorial Board’s attack on Paul puts words in his mouth

I attended DePauw University for two years in 2008-2010 and, as a former student, it is with great disappointment and embarrassment that I find myself forced to sit down and respond to the Sept. 10 editorial in The DePauw entitled “Ron Paul and DePauw: Guilty by Association.”

Upon reading the article, it became apparent at the outset that I was in for a predictable tirade of conjecture and recycled accusations which have been thrown at Paul since he rose above being the lone “no” vote in the House of Representatives and became one of the most powerful grassroots forces in American politics today.

Let us be very clear as to how many controversial statements The DePauw’s editorial board can attribute, as a direct quotation, to Paul: zero.

Absolutely zero.

In criticism of editorial “Ron Paul: Guilty by association”

By Nathan O’Connor
Co-Founder of Young Americans for Liberty at DePauw University
Published: Friday, September 13, 2013

As a co-founder of DePauw’s chapter of Young Americans for Liberty – which grew out of Students for Ron Paul back in 2008 – I’ve stayed updated with the goings-on at DePauw and was excited to learn that Dr. Paul was coming to the university to speak, thanks to the Ubben family. However, I was terribly disappointed and, frankly, disgusted by the severe lack of consistency and concrete journalism in Tuesday’s piece: “Ron Paul and DePauw: Guilty by Association”.

Not only are the accusations against 11-term congressman and 3-time presidential nominee weak at best, they also contain logic that The DePauw’s Editorial Board fails to apply to other public figures in America.

Let’s say for the sake of argument that Dr. Paul can be considered a racist, using The Depauw’s “guilty by association” logic. (This weak allegation can easily be annulled by the fact that he has held a strong stance on freedom and minority rights for over a half-century.) But let’s say he is guilty by association. We’d then have to apply the same syllogism to other prominent public figures, let’s say, President Obama.

Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who included several controversial and racist remarks in his sermons, is the former pastor of President Obama and his family. Bill Ayers, the former leader of the militant group the Weather Underground that has bombed various governmental buildings, is also a good friend of the Obama’s.

President Obama must then condone the behavior of those individuals and, by proxy, be guilty of their remarks and crimes since he has past – and present - associations with them.

Ron Paul editorial claims unwarranted and unfounded

As a recent graduate and former staff member of The DePauw, it’s with deep disappointment that I feel compelled to submit this letter in response to Tuesday’s editorial, “Ron Paul and DePauw: Guilty by association.”

While The DePauw’s mention of the various controversies surrounding Ron Paul certainly warrant our attention and scrutiny, the implication that Paul is not a “legitimate and appropriate” speaker based on “toxic anti-humanitarian associations” is carelessly sensationalized and incredibly reductive of Paul’s 23 years of service to our country as a United States congressman.

In a political climate where our elected officials tend to legislate at the behest of special interests and partisan groupthink, Paul remained the most ideologically consistent member of Congress for decades, defending the Constitution and the principles of individual liberty, personal responsibility and free markets. As Americans grow increasingly disenchanted with our country’s methods of mass surveillance, endless war and unsound monetary policy, these principles – which The DePauw has mistakenly labeled as “countercultural,” “neoconservative” and, perhaps mostly offensively, “extremist” – are not radical new concepts. Nor are they unpopular, fringe philosophies. To dismiss them as such is damaging to the open dialogue and broad consideration of ideas for which The DePauw should advocate.

Paul is not the first controversial politician to be invited to take part in the Ubben Lecture – this campus has seen the likes of Bill Clinton, Mikhail Gorbachev, Tony Blair and Ralph Nader. Like Paul, they all have something to answer for, and it is indeed our obligation to challenge and dissect their past associations and ideas. But the suggestion that the DePauw community and the incredibly generous Ubben family are openly aligning themselves with “anti-humanitarians” – accusations leveled against Paul that The DePauw reports are primarily rooted in blogosphere hearsay – is unwarranted and frankly distasteful.
