Why I'm against "Paulites against truthers"Submitted by docholladay on Tue, 06/03/2008 - 12:47
Ok, ok, ha, ha, ha. I'm not really AGAINST anyone's freedom of speech, thought, or expression, but to me the 9/11 issue has been effectively used by the neocons to divide the ranks. What's the old adage.... 'divide and conquer'? Well, it seems to be working to some degree in regard to the Paul campaign specifically and the Revolution in general.
I was on the fence for a while on the 9/11 issue, and even believed at first that 'truthers' were nuts, but after a year or so of objective and critical investigation I now will be the first to admit that I'm a 'truther' too. I know that Ron Paul has publicly stated that he doesn't believe that 9/11 was an inside job. He has also asked 'truthers' to refrain from implying that he supports the 'inside job' theory. That is his right and I understand why he takes that position. He HAS stated that he is in favor of a new OBJECTIVE investigation and subtly intimated that he doesn't buy the 'official' commission report, but ultimately what Ron Paul believes or doesn't beleive doesn't change the fact that a HUGE percentage of Ron Paul supporters believe that 9/11 was an inside job. In fact, truthers haven't turned away from Dr. Paul in spite of his public position, and are even some of his most devoted supporters. That speaks volumes.
What I don't understand (especially at this stage of his campaign) is this: the idea that just because someone questions the official 9/11 story that they are automatically deemed unfit to support Dr. Paul, and the message of freedom and liberty that he brings. That sounds like a neocon tactic to me, and we're seeing more and more of this B.S. as their house of cards is starting to fall apart. You see, "truthers" (with the exception of a few loose screws) are actually rational, intelligent, freedom loving, open minded, TRUTH seeking TRUTH supporting people. Ron Paul doesn't have to agree with everyone on every issue for his message of freedom and Constitutional government to be appealing. He speaks so much TRUTH that truthers and everyone else interested in liberty love and support him. I tell you this, if you took all the 'truther' support out of the Revolution, you'd be left with a hole as big as the Grand Canyon. I don't understand the whole 'paulites against truthers' idiocy. That'd be like me starting a site called "me against myself". Truther or non-truther, we all support the cause of freedom. In fact, I'd almost put money on the CFR or some other neocon cess pool organization being behind sites like "Paulitesagainsttruthers.com" We need to be stop bickering among ourselves and form a united, unstoppable entity that will remove the cancer from our government and return our country to what the founders intended. We also need to remember that it's NOT wrong to question the government's story. It's almost gotten to the point that the brainwashed masses view questioning the government as some sort of 'blasphemy', and I do mean in a religious sense. As J. Edgar Hoover said, "The individual is handicapped by coming face-to-face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists."
Idealy, I hope that more and more Americans can move beyond the denial that plagues our nation, but if that can't happen, can we at LEAST agree that any and all support of Dr. Paul, the Constitution, freedom, and government accountability is vitally needed? Of course, I don't think that blasting people with 9/11 truth and calling them idiots if they don't agree is a good idea, and unfortunately some truthers do that, but as a whole truthers are just as interested and passionate (if not more so) as any other Paul supporters. Let freedom ring and let freedom of speech prevail!
