Joel Stein (Time Mag) on Tucker

Excuse me, but this guy Joel Stein is a bona fide idiot. What strikes me about his "analysis" is that it is all about appearances.

This is my impression of Joel Stein (use your best stoner voice when you read this): "Oh, man -- dude -- I can't figure this out! Cuz he, like, talks about all this stuff, man! I don't get it...But he's like - you know, like the guy from Network, who's gonna tell Washington to go screw itself. It's pretty freaky."

Stein says Dr. Paul is a "horrible speaker...He's like the professor, like, you know he's smart, his book was supposedly really good, but you're not going to stay awake the whole class."

Excuse me? That says much more about Stein than about Ron Paul! Like that he was a college flunky who somehow got by snoozing through class without learning anything. And this guy works for Time?

Sign of the times, my friends. Sign of the times.

He goes on to say that Ron Paul supporters aren't like Dean followers because we're "nerdy," while the Dean follwers were a "good looking group. They're like little Kennedy kind of, you know, JFK kind of followers."

And Tucker...Et tu, Tucker?

I really hope I'm not

I really hope I'm not related to this guy. I mean, that was a perfect example of why people need to be critical of news stories. If THIS guy is a reporter, I'd be VERY suspicious.

I'll give them this, they probably made people look into Ron Paul because of that report. I think the people that take the time will realize that Joel's the idiot here...

Are you kidding me?

This report is about what I'd expect from a high school student working on the school newspaper. As bad as the media is these days, it's still hard to believe that TIME Magazine would actually print this crap and pay this guy.

Following is a quick e-mail I blasted off to the editor. Worthless, I know, but this stuff cannot be passed off as journalism and I had to say something.

Dear Sirs:
I read the article "Ron Paul Revolution" and watched Mr. Stein on Tucker Carlson. Rather than doing any research on why students are applauding abolishing the Federal Reserve, Stein tells us it's just that students like someone who thumbs their nose at the establishment. Wrong. It's our disastrous monetary policy and the students in that audience are far more informed than your "journalist" who obviously took no time to look any further and made an uneducated guess.

When I was a kid my parents subscribed to your magazine and I read it voraciously. I looked forward to every issue and soaked it up. If this article and this journalist represent the current state and staff of TIME Magazine I wouldn't use it to clean up the dog droppings in my back yard. This is pathetic.

Man

Joel Stein is a retard. That was the dumbest interview ever. He makes me ashamed to be American.

Joel Stien

Ya know when I first started watching this video I thought I was looking at my grandmothers old douche bag!!!! then I realized it was back in Oklahoma!

I used to stick "Kick Me I'm a Loser!" note on Joel Stein in HS.

And gave him wedgies, to boot.

Just being facetious. But I probably would have. Couldn't stand phonies then, or now. I'm a lover, really. No, really, really. I only reserve public humiliation for a**holes.

DISPLACEMENT NEUROSIS

There's nothing more laughable, and/or ironic, than watching two dorks, dweeves, losers, morons, _____ (fill in the blank) displace their high school insecurities by calling other people who display similar traits just like themselves, as nerds and geeks. Sure Tucker, I'm sure you were a talented athlete, in HS. I'm sure everyone wanted join your clique of bowtie-dom.

Sorry, The James Dean School of Cool definitely forgot to qualify phony conservatives wearing a bow tie while calling himself a libertarian on a hack cable TV show, as bona fide hip. F*cker (yeah, it's sophomoric, so what!) Carlson, is a pr*ck with, or without the bow tie.

But I'll reserve the "nerds" and "geeks" moniker, with pride, for us. Nerds are smart. Nerds run the world, or should run it. Geeks have passion. Geeks are specialists. 7 years of NeoCON BS is what you get when you don't have nerds and geeks, but bunch of moronic ideologues running the world.

"Nerds" and "geeks" are terms of endearment reserved for the passionate, creative, and talented. Really. Artists, actors, athletes, contractors, musicians, film makers, computer techs, engineers, salesmen, gunsmiths, jewelers, investment bankers, lawyers, doctors, accountants, politicians and politikos, or whatever, are all geeks. All specialists and pros are, by definition geeks:

"Geek (n)-gēk: an enthusiast or expert especially in a technological field or activity."

Unless they are geeks, they would suck at their respective professions. Try hiring prison guards for heart surgery. Kinda like failing upwards. I mean what sane people would hire morons to craft a foreign policy of a nation with 35,000 nuclear warheads and a two trillion dollar defense budget? Oh, that's right, we just did, for the last 50 years! We're in a mess because we didn't hire nerds and geeks, at least the proper ones, to get'er done right.

Nerds and Geeks?? NeoCON sychophantic WaffenSS bootlickers deserve no such extolment.

Hey, I was and still am a geek, but I played OT and DT in varsity football, and beat up seniors in my freshman year. What does that make me "Joel Stein, Mr. I'm no Einstein??"

And I could care less if Joel went to Stanford. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joel_Stein

The way he writes and conducts himself, you'd think he went to Stanford Summer School. Hell, I think I stopped having respect for Yale, not to mention the rest of Ivy League, after some personal experience hiring and dealing with some of their MBA grads, long before W. proved that an Ivy degree ain't worth sh*t, other than a very expensive drunken binge vacation paid for by mommies and daddies.

I'll take common sense and intuition and independent academics over State Indoctrinees, any day of the week.

RON PAUL 2008!!!! B E L I E V E

Joel Stien and Tucker real "hepcats!"

Tucker used to wear bow ties to make himself seem more "conservative," and Joel Stein writes for Time magazine--LOL! Time magazine is for old ladies who need a break from all that reality they're getting from People magazine. I mean, that's why it's sold right next to the National Enquirer.

Next time you're at the doctor's office pick up a copy for a few laughs, and then copy Joel's email address down to let him know what you think of him and his poor taste in employment....

Friends like Tucker.... don't want or need em!

Tucker would be more respected by me just coming out and saying he is against the small government that Ron Paul stands for..

The idiot instead trys to infer that lunatics are following RP and eccentric...

I have to say I'm not sure if Tucker is a lunatic or maybe even a lunatic eccentric..

Friends like him... keep em... and vote for the rights abater Ghoul..

Tucker

is falling in line with his corporate bosses who pay his wage , watch his eyes he is reading what he has been told to read, he just like all MSM repoprters(sic) are selling themselves to the corporate hierarchy.

As for the Time reporter (sic) he is also scripted so what were you all expecting to hear we are all beautiful and well rounded individuals I wasn't.

They are definitely scared and November 5th they will be toasting us
because we will make history in the United States of America campaigning history !!!!

"Freedom is a right that can never be won in war,only by each individual "

Horrible Speaker

When they say he is a horrible speaker, what they mean is, he doesn't dodge questions, he just answers them. People really aren't used to that from politicians. But this a new era where you tube and the internet allow people to actually compare and analyze what politicians are saying and the days of pandering and question dodging and depending on the mainstream media to only show your good side are quickly coming to an end.

just like when RP told the young crowd gathered at Google headquarters that he didn't support federally subsidized student loans. People can really appreciate the truth if you give them a chance.

Also a plainspoken statesman like Ron Paul makes these yellow journalists irrelevant. They are used to being the ones to try and sort out the double speak and expose the politician. With RP, there's no game there! Not good for business!

5% of people make things happen
10% of people watch things happen
85% say "What happened?"

Fast Times at Time

You knew it was coming; Spicoli commenting on Ron Paul. Weighing in next? Bill and Ted.

"Government is not reason, it is not eloquence; it is force. Like fire it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master."

Invasion of the Tucker snatcher!

I totally agree with what others have said on here. Someone must have gotten to Tucker, because he used to be really friendly to Ron Paul and kept having him back to his show. (Compare with this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cj8uah73lag&NR=1) Now, he acts like Paul is some sort of crazy loser. Could this be an impostor?

Well, Tucker, we got the old YouTube videos and we see through you and Joel Stein. Us "amateur journalists" can run rings around your analysis! What a bunch of worthless jerk-offs! Who do you think you're fooling?

Yeah, someone got to him. They told him to change his tune or look for a new job. There's no other way to explain such a difference. He might as well go back to wearing his bow-ties.

Solid Gold

My favorite part is when Tucker acted like returning to the gold standard was the most absurd view he had ever heard...
So why did he vote for paul in '88 anyways? I would like to see Tucker interviewed on another show that could shed some light on his "libertarian to neo-con journey"

He was recently interviewed

He was recently interviewed on Bill Maher (Tucker) and he was saying the same things! Maher was praising Paul for what he said in the debate, about Declaration of Wars and such. Tucker said he was a full Paul supporter and then went on to say that liberals would hate him if they actually knew what he stood for, like eliminating the Departments. Then everyone was talking abou Paul and he just interrupted and said "Why don't we stop pretending to love Ron Paul?". But then the whole show all he we was doing was saying Libertarian things which make perfect sense, and even though everyone was disagreeing with him, he stuck to his beliefs. I don't understand how he can be a full out libertarian, and a Ron Paul supporter and then bash all of Ron Paul's ideas like they suck. I just don't understand it.

Nerds

As a self professed "computer geek" I take no offense to the "nerdy" term.

From the days of "Revenge of the Nerds" (they won in the end) to the real successes displayed in silicon valley by all of those nerds that you always picked on in high school that now own their own multi-million dollar company. From Bill Gates to the inventors of Google, the nerds are aplenty and they're powerful.

By all means, tell all of the nerds, geeks, freaks, etc vote for Ron Paul. If the other candidates are too "fancy" for them, we'll gladly accept them.

So we have the Preppie (Romney), Jock (Thompson), ROTC (McCain) and that creepy guy (Rudy) against the Nerd (Ron Paul).

After 8 years of the country being run by the Frat guy...we need someone smart in the White House.

It's the Connotation

I don't personally have any problem with someone referring to me as a nerd (and I even refer to myself as a nerd on stage in front of people), and there are contexts where it has a positive connotation. The connotation in the context that Joel Stein used it is damaging. The connotation he's trying to engender is one of "disconnected from reality." That's a really bad context to associate with a person who wants to be president.

video

When Tucker first interviewed Ron Paul I remember Tucker was
gushing and thrilled about Dr. Paul. I thought, "Wow, wonder how long this will last". Sure enough, I think someone got to Tucker and gave him hell. Tucker is doing damage control for the bosses. I think Tucker is still for Dr. Paul but he is going about it in a different way. When he asks "Do people really want smaller government?" I think Tucker is talking in code, a positive remark that is suppose to sound negative. Eventually, he is going to feel so dirty his integrity will kick in and he will do the right thing and quit. Come on, Tucker quit and come away from the dark side. You know you want to shout from the roof tops " Yes, Yes I support Ron Paul and I will donate l00 dollars Nov. 5 because V is for victory. Donate so we have a Victory next Nov.

"We can see with our eyes, hear with our ears and feel with our touch, but we understand with our hearts."

Joel Klein should work for TMZ

Those who are in to politics in general are typically more nerdy. However, most of the Ron Paul supporters I've seen or know are attractive young people.

I'm donating on November 5th because I thought that was the day we voted. First I heard that it was for V for Vendetta.

Thanks!

Thank you for proving my point that no one even realizes what this day stands for.

Wow

Between this and the Soledad O'Brein interview, it seems like the MSM is consciously trying to fit in as many "crazy" and "fringe" synonyms into one piece as possible. What is going on?! Freedom and the Constitution are such lost concepts in this society, that people actually don't understand them anymore.

Plus, I think Tucker has a crush on Stein, so we was sucking up to him the whole interview, despite his philosophical similarities with Dr. Paul.

Stein's ON THE MONEY!

C’mon guys! Stein’s analysis was right on the mark!

About Ron Paul:
• Nerdy looking – Absolutely! He looks just like Grand Moff Tarkin (see…I’m not embarrassed about my own nerdiness). But his looks don’t nearly capture his nerdiness as does his high-pitch whiney voice.
• Horrible speaker – Yes! He stutters and slurs words all of the time and of all the candidates, he genuinely looks the most uncomfortable (and I am including Fred in that comparison).
• Boring content – Yes! In fact, I just looked up “sexy” in Microsoft Word’s thesaurus, and it lists “monetary policy” as the antonym…(I’m waiting for someone to look it up in and correct me…thus proving his own nerdiness).
• Charming/Adorable – Now who can disagree with that?

Unfortunately, I have little interaction with other Ron Paul supporters because I’m an ex-pat living in China, so the only Ron Paul supporters I know are my dad and myself. And I can assure you that we fall right in the demographic that Stein is describing.

I think being called a nerd speaks to our difference from the mainstream/status-quo. After all, isn’t that what makes an outsider an outsider? You should EMBRACE this, because it implies you don’t fit in with the masses…and politically speaking, I don’t think there’s a single Ron Paul fan who should want to.

Let’s just not let words like “defensive”, “self-conscious”, or “vain” creep into this campaign. If being called a nerd makes your blood boil, then you probably need to examine why...hint: refer to the three words above.

Closing quote:
“Nothing will go further than making fun of yourself” –my own quote that I just came up with (is the correct way to say that "up with which I just came"?)

Xie Xie from the ATL

Right on Salberty!

If you look him up, Stein's more of a 'lifestyles' writer. He's an English Grad from Stanford. He's not an Econ Major, so when he claims to not understand the monetary policy references, he's not making it up. Stein's observing a 'celebrity' unlike any he has ever written about: older, simpler, and probably 'real'-er. He writes for the LA Times and is more of a pop culture observer than a political reporter. Put in that context, there is no question we would be considered a motley bunch by him. Within Ron Paul circles, I've met people who have completely removed TV's from their houses, home school their kids, and haven't seen one of the Big 3's nightly news programs in years.

And there's nothing wrong with any of it. It just provides more evidence that Ron Paul has drawn together one of the most diverse groups of followers in US Political History.

But to the majority of American's who do have cable TV, do watch nightly news, and do not educate their own kids, this all may seem very odd. But don't be defensive about it. Revel in it! Be proud of your individuality, but also accept that others have their own definition of what 'normal' is. That is a basic tenet of Liberty.

Peace be with y'all!

Where is Tucker?

Where has this guy been? He loves to bragg about how he voted for him last time, but he has no idea why RP is so popular. He also doesn't understand RP's "financial" positions. This guy is not really a RP supporter. Either way think about it. He asks questions like all the people I talk to around me who have no idea how the FED prints money and then hands us inflation. He always says "I don't know about the gold standard" when this is one of his biggest positions. That is crazy. Can he really not understand how the banking system works and be a RP supporter? That is just so crazy.

I am so sick and tired of hearing about this 2%. Sick part about it is the MSM doesn't have anything to lose as usual. This is why they are so influential. What kind of apologies be will there be when this 2% number turns out to be not true? None. They just told everyone who to vote for. Sick....

Great Analysis

Your observations about this "pop-culture reporter" Joel Stein are very well put and accurately paint a portrait of what we are up against. This guy and Frank Luntz, their arrogance and smug ideas proceed them. This article is in many ways just tabloid TRASH. This latest CNN hit-piece was another ridiculous display of the establishments refusal to report the huge political upset Ron Paul is creating. There are tremors going through the entire political system right now because Ron Paul is running a good race, one which will be difficult to beat, even with the cameras and yes-men against him.

And this guy works for Time magazine, how..?

He should be working the gossip columns. No substance, all about appearances.. he called Ron Paul. "Cute!".. wow, going to comment on his attire now? - brings Time magazine down, so so much.

not just "cute"

"Adorable."

Good Interview

I agreed with most of what he said, with the exception of what his supporters are like. I was at the same rally that Joel Stein was at, and I saw NO 9/11 Truthers, everyone looked completely "normal". Just a bunch of college students. Same crowd you would see at any politicians rally. Also, he is right about Ron Paul being a poor speaker. By the way, do you guys now see how stupid of an idea it was to choose November 5th? All you are doing is confirming everyone's belief that Ron Paul supporters are insane.

Guy Fawkes day dude... you

Guy Fawkes day dude... you know liberty from tyranny and all that? This is what the campaign is all about.

I have to say, handing out thousands of flyers of the past month or two I've run into my share of "truthers". My opinion on the matter is to never attribute to malice what is adequately explained by incompetence. I don't think the government is smart enough to pull something like that off. They couldn't even burgle an office building and get away with it, let alone something like this.

The thing about this message is that it really does bring people together... the tin foil cap crowd, evangelicals, pot heads, racists, anarchists, liberals, soldiers, techies, retirees, gun nuts, anti-abortion activists, you name it. I myself fit into at least four of those categories. I'll leave it as an exercise to the reader to guess which ones.

The thing about RP, what makes his campaign so brilliant is that he can appeal directly to so many different partisan groups, even ones that directly oppose each other. The traditional strategy has always been to avoid expressing any kind of opinion for fear of offending these groups. No one in the major parties has ever figured out a political philosophy that actually addresses all their concerns. He states his position and then explains how it solves the problems raised by people on both sides of the issue. RP is much more clever a politician than anyone gives him credit for, and he does it all while staying true to his principles. He's brilliant. That's also why he's so baffling to the pundits. They thought they had the whole campaign thing worked out and then along comes RP and turns it on it's ear.

November 5th Fundraiser = $9.11 Fundraiser. Bad Publicity!

I don't know why the "How Ron Paul Brings People Together" thing had anything to do with my post. I'm not at all disputing that. My main point was about November 5th. I know a lot of people here probably just think that it's some cool thing from the movie V for Vendetta. But this is about a person who tried to blow up government buildings! Yes, the Ron Paul campaign is a revolution, but I'd prefer not to blow up any buildings. If November 5th is a success, the very first question the media will ask is "Why November 5th?". When they find out, don't count on any good coverage regarding the fundraising, it will entirely be about the supporters of Paul and how crazy they are. Count on it. It will reflect badly on Ron Paul's campaign, too. I know this is a grassroots effort, but so was the $9.11 Rudy Giuliani Fundraiser which had people up in arms. Just set it a day later, folks.

Don't these people know

Don't these people know anything about the movie ''V for Vendetta''.

It is more about changing the current state of government than anarchy. I don't get it.

BTW, the Gunpowder conspiracy was about FREEDOM OF RELIGION and not about anarchy albeit it was against the current monarchy of the day.

joel stein

this guy is the original no nothing , born with a silver spoon up his arse moron preppy, daddy got me the job guy who does not have a clue.. is it me? or has everyone in the media slept threw thier american history classes.. if Ron Paul is nerdy etc.. his policies make no sense etc.. then Adams, Jefferson, Washington, Madison etc, were just a bunch of nerdy guys who were way out there too?? all the Men who sacrificed their lives for this country are nerdy and way out there too? Ron Paul is winning this thing! if the man didn't have a chance then why are these people attacking him! I guess the more attacks we get, the better Ron Paul is doing.. Now Mr. Stein.. you say Ron Paul is a cute little guy?? well there half pint.. your the poster child for the pencil neck geek of the month club. all what?? 140 lbs of you..?? before you call someone else cute and little you should go look in a mirror... that 11" neck you have with huge protruding adams apple is way nerdy! and to some of your boyfriends probably cute too!
Ron Paul in 08!

RP speaks wonderfully

A common tactic in emotional debate is to attack the messenger rather than the message. Attacking Ron Paul's message would be very difficult to do on a public stage. You're NOT for individual liberty? You're NOT for the Bill of Rights?

How do you attack the messenger? Follow the lead of Bill O'Reilly. Call the messenger names, like kook, cute, adorable, nerd, idiot, crazy, etc. There are plenty of variations on this theme. Once you know what to look for, you'll see it all over the place. It's a style of argument that tugs at our emotions...if we haven't acheived the intellectual maturity of an 18 year old yet.

up in arms

I don't see what the big deal is. He didn't say "crazy" or "nerdy" In a bad way. If any thing he seems just as confused as he claims Ron Paul is about Ron Paul's success and in the same breath said Ron Paul is an intellegent man etc.

Dr. Ron Paul isn't a good speaker?

Ohh.. Joel Stein.. You mean he is a horrible speaker???
Oh.. You mean..he hasn't a Bachelors-degree in"Snake-Oil-Selling-Rhetorics" like the other guys???
Au contraire Mr. Stein...au contraire....
People like the way he speaks...his words come right from his brains, and not from some highly paid ghost writer...

In many ways this is a very charming piece

Some paraphrases of quotes I heard...

" Ron Paul is adorable" (exact quote from Joel Stein)

" I saw him get 700 people to listen to him in a 300 seat auditorium in Iowa."

Tucker asks, "Are college and university students wild about the gold standard and federal reserve?" and the response was " its hard to tell, his audience applauds when the talk is legalizing drugs, and applause for getting out of Iraq, but they go wild over gold money and the federal reserve..."

This will totally arouse curiosity. It was fun too. Tucker is clever. He has a dozen different ways to get Ron Paul on his show without appearing to be a sycophant of the good Dr.

Publisher of Cannabis Culture Magazine, Leader of the BC Marijuana Party, libertarian activist and candidate since 1979.

A different perspective Marc

I'll have to give your idea some thought.

I've been wondering where Tucker has been going lately.

He first started with "I'm a big Ron Paul supporter"

Then went to this "what's up with all these people getting excited about Ron Paul? Don't you think if they really understood his positions they wouldn't support him?"

Now he's picking up a guy who seems fit to report what Paris Hilton or Britney Spears are up to, and he's laughing right along with him at all the freaks and hippies that love liberty.

I'm still leaning toward dismissing Tucker, but your perspective is worth considering.

Tucker is a freak

I don't really know but I think maybe Tucker is an old school libertarian and knows quite well the movement is populated mostly with freaks. And I use the term freaks only in the most affectionate manner possible. I include myself in among that number. These ideas have been so unpopular, so radical, for so long that it took an extreme independent personality to hold them with any kind of conviction. You had to be the kind of person who was willing to say that 98% of the population was dead wrong. Of course in the beginning these freaks were the only ones who boldly supported or even knew about RP. This is where Tucker is coming from. He hasn't quite wrapped his head around the idea that regular people are capable of understanding and coming around to these ideas as well. They haven't for something like a hundred years, so it is a bit mind boggling that it's happening now.

If I had to venture a guess, I think the Internet is having greater transformative effect on human society than anyone has grasped yet. The ability to find and participate in peer groups dispersed across the globe has allowed fringe ideas to get a foothold among "normal" people who aren't capable of going against perceived prevailing social norms. If they can hop online and spend hours communicating with hundreds of other people who think a certain way, all of a sudden their perception is that this idea isn't so crazy after all. It's okay to think this way. 98% of humanity needs that kind of reassurance to feel comfortable with a certain way of thinking.

Good looking

As you know Mike, we Paul supporters here in NH are all good looking people! I don't know about the rest of ya, but we are all pretty stunning right? :-)

Seriously though, Time Magazine ain't what it used to be. Like the NYT, it is no longer the paragon of truth and cannot be trusted.

Stein is one of those 'trendy' reporters that is supposed to inject fun and controversy into a subject, but basically doesn't know his butt from his elbow.

Pretty darned hot

I saw a NH Ron Paul campaigner on YouTube who was pretty darned hot.
Don't recall her name...

Negative = Positive

This will only generate curiosity. This is all they can do, try to slander. Dig and dig and you wont find any dirt on RP, so they talk about his supporters. All they have are lies and opinions which evaporate leaving behind more name recognition. This will backfire for them and generate more support for liberty. Most of the people that would base their opinions on this piece won't be voting anyway and those who are curios as to what the fuss is about, and do their own research , certainly will be.

What do I think about the guy with the tri-cornered hat ringing the bell? Brilliant! Look, his image has made it all the way here! People love novelty.

They're already starting with the Guy Fawkes 5th thing.

I apprecitae Tucker, but he could have done a better job of defending RP and his campaigners. Most of us are NOT into all of the conspiracy crap that we are going to have to start defending even more so after the 5th.

conspiracy?

"Most of us are NOT into all of the conspiracy crap..."

That's because most of us don't take the time to do some serious research. Instead we formulate opinions based upon surface impressions and then go around calling things we don't know anything about "crap".

A post of yours:
YouTube, Comcast, etc.....
Posted November 2nd, 2007 by MashTheGas

I think we are in a very small window of time with the free and open internet. The popularity and growth of the Ron Paul campaign is scaring many many people that would hate to lose control of our minds and information.

YouTube is thought to be doing it and now cable TV giant Comcast has been caught censoring information.

The internet is a huge threat to the elite that want control of every aspect of our lives. Take a look at this article....

It's hard to stay ahead of all of these censors, but we have to keep up the fight for what rights we have left.

-OK, now I'm confused, you said: "The internet is a huge threat to the elite that want control of every aspect of our lives." This is what all the conspiracy theorists say. New World Order = the elite that want control of every aspect of our lives...??? I thought you called this train of thought "crap".

You are right. I should have been

more clear with what I was calling "crap". My thinking at the time when I wrote that was getting thrown into the clique of 9-11 truthers, which I think is pretty far fetched and I do have to dismantle sometimes when talking to others about RP.

We will be getting attacked again by people and the msm that think we are whackos that put such an importance on the Nov 5th "bomb".

I have pretty much kept my mouth shut about my feelings for the Nov 5th thing, but felt I needed to address your post.

Believe me, I hope I am wrong and you all will have the right to call me __insert adjective here__ if it does not get tied together as another "whacko conspiracy theory" by a bunch of fringe lunatics. Why give the naysayers any ammo?

November 5th is no conspiracy

I don't understand some RP supporters that don't get the idea of November 5th. It's not a promotion of anarchy or some lunatic fringe idea, it's a symbolic gesture against the tyranny of our current government. Were our founding fathers a bunch of anarchist wackos? They initiated a violent and brutal Revolutionaly War against an oppressive monarchy. Our current government places more burdens on our freedoms than the British crown did in 1776 and what is our response to this? We have engaged in another Revolution - the Ron Paul Revolution. A nonviolent movement to regain our liberties working inside of the system.

It shames me when I see Ron Paul supporters that act so afriad to upset the apple cart and go about protesting actions of other RP supporters that seek to do so. That is our whole purpose here. We are trying to make a difference. I want them to be upset. I want them to be afraid of our strength. Be afraid of our numbers. Be afraid of our dollars. It is the mainstream that needs to be afraid. Not us.
