The United States Constitution is the law of the land. Our nation’s founding charter was intended to reflect our British common law heritage, the lessons of Greek democracy, and the principles of the Roman Republic. It contains historic civil liberties protections that date back to the Magna Carta.
In his cover story interview in the latest issue of Rolling Stone, The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart talks about how he likes to point out the hypocrisy of most politicians. Stewart also adds:
“You know a guy you’d have a hard time doing that do? Ron Paul, because he’s been consistent over the years… You may disagree with him, but at least you can respect that the guy has a belief system he’s engaged in and will defend.”
Of course, Stewart is right—and Ron Paul’s appearance on The Daily Show tonight promises to be memorable.
With the release of the caustic article by Jeffrey Lord in the American Spectator, and further whetted by the wily and cantankerous talking head Mark Levin, conservative thought in foreign policy has been brought to the forefront. Levin and Lord, in their ex-cathedra pronouncement, have claimed a sin has been committed by the sly Ron Paul, who, it is asserted, is surreptitiously holding on to liberal views while claiming to be a conservative.
Mark Levin is at it again. Boy, is this man pretentious or what? His intellect in "debate" is like that between two five year olds arguing over pieces of candy on the playground. You will notice the smears, the name calling, the lack of substance, basically a childish reply. This is the man who refused to debate Tom Woods. If he's so tough, so big and haughty, he would certainly wipe the floor with Tom Woods, right? Or Kevin Gutzman? No, he just retreats and smears, retreats and smears, recycle and do again.
To Jack Hunter:
In a recent column, Jeffrey Lord warned that Ron Paul's presidential bid was secretly a "Neoliberal Reeducation Campaign." Writes Lord: "the Paul campaign is not just a campaign for president. This is a campaign -- a serious campaign -- to re-educate the American people…" For Lord, Paul's alleged reeducation mission means passing off liberal ideas as conservative. This is amusing -- because this is precisely what self-described conservatives of Lord's ilk have been doing for years.
Imagine that there never was a President George W. Bush, and when Bill Clinton left the White House he was immediately replaced with Barack Obama. Now imagine Obama carried out the exact same agenda as Bush -- Medicare Plan D, No Child Left Behind, the Iraq and Afghanistan wars -- the whole works. Would conservatives have generally supported Obama as they did Bush -- or would they have rightly criticized the most big government president in our history at that time?
Despite his glaringly statist record, did Lord ever consider Bush a "neo-liberal"?
Lord's response to Jack's response is revisionist garbage. Don't forget to leave your coments on their site folks!

Thanks Brutus56 for making us aware!
Jack Hunter gets attacked and called a liar in this whimsical display of progressive RINO fear mongering. Obviously this 'conservative blogger' knows nothing about Jack Hunter and his positions on a strong national defense and strict adherence to the US Constitution when engaging in an act of War.
Preemptive striker Zbingniewmasurak would support a military build up against Alice in Wonderland if his progressive leadership in the Republican party declared jihad on the Queen of Hearts or maybe he just suffers from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alice_in_Wonderland_syndrome
