Let us count the ways in which the nomination of Ron Paul would be groundbreaking for the GOP.

No other recent candidate hailing from the party of Lincoln has
accused Abraham Lincoln of causing a “senseless” war and ruling with an “iron fist.”
Or regarded Ronald Reagan’s presidency a “dramatic failure.”
Or proposed the legalization of prostitution and heroin use.
Or called America the most “aggressive, extended and expansionist” empire in world history.
Or promised to abolish the CIA, depart NATO and withdraw military protection from South Korea.
Or blamed terrorism on American militarism, since “they’re terrorists because we’re occupiers.”
Or accused the American government of a Sept. 11 “coverup” and called for an investigation headed by Dennis Kucinich.
Or described the killing of Osama bin Laden as “absolutely not necessary.”
Or affirmed that he would not have sent American troops to Europe to end the Holocaust.
Or excused Iranian nuclear ambitions as “natural,” while dismissing evidence of those ambitions as “war propaganda.”
Or published a newsletter stating that the 1993 World Trade Center attack might have been “a setup by the Israeli Mossad,”
and defending former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke and criticizing the “evil of forced integration.”

Thanks, NFO and Dana. I still think he's related to Ru Paul.

Ron Paul scares the bejeezus out of me as much as Obama scared me three years ago.

Rita said... She has been very good at attracting different opinions on politics. It's been feeding my political junky side. I, for the most part try to avoid posting much about politics only because I don't like the divisiveness and don't want to offend the one liberal in my family, although she's too busy right now to read much. Z's blog is great, but I caution you, there is one clown there that has nothing better to do than create dozens of different online personalities and sometimes posts comments disagreeing with himself. He's taken to picking on another commenter and sometimes the blog just explodes into a cat fight. Z's been trying to keep them in line, but until that happens, I'll keep reading but I'm not going to comment there for awhile. I don't care to waste time with someone who creates all these fake people. I love being able to debate politics if people can keep it from becoming personal. Too many people just want to hurl insults.

Rita: "I have been reading a wonderful blog that has a lot of insightful commenters." Where?

No kidding Ed. Politics is becoming a drug habit I can't seem to kick, especially this year. That Paul is now masquerading around as a R and EVEN claims he's a TEA party candidate makes me even more livid than the current sitting president. Before the last election I was a diehard "Anyone but Hillary" after hearing Rev. Wright and the "clinging to guns and religion" comment, I was "Anyone but Obama". Not I've lined up as a "Anyone but Paul, Obama, Hillary" in that order. Not thrilled with the candidates lined up, I was hoping first for Mike Pence, then Mitch Daniels. Maybe next time.

Rita, as opposed as I am to stay at home's on election day, I make an exception with Paul.

Ahhh. Now you get to the very heart of exactly what inspired my last post. I have been reading a wonderful blog that has a lot of insightful commenters. But there is one that is one that is such a Ron Paul kook that I have decided to just take a rest from commenting there. Even tried to "explain" to me that I shouldn't be told what to think by others. I nearly blew my top. It took only Paul's saying Iran should be allowed to have nukes to make me realize he is even more dangerous to America than Obama is. If he's the nominee, I'll sit home. THAT's how crazy I think he is. And his fans are RABID.

It scares me that he's supported by so many vets. That they misunderstand him. But don't think he's nuts.

He's not nuts. Just misunderstood.
