Paul is unbelievable here… his position is provable and accurate. Ron Paul 1 x Giuliani 0.
“I will be delighted to debate him (Giuliani) on foreign policy…” –Ron Paul
(quoted in the presence of the despicable Sean Hannity) <>
Not only did he stand up against the New York fascist and not back down, only elaborating on the point beautifully, he did the best any candidate could possibly do in a debate in service of liberty: He spoke to the people telling them we need to change our ideas about the world. We need to think about actions and consequences. We need to look at what our government does to other people, thinking of what we might think if foreign governments treated Americans like that. We need to look at history a bit. It was a philosophical earthquake, and one that no doubt made a lot of people think. It was amazing.
And Lew Rockwell adds:
The maddening FOX debate is still going on, but Ron Paul has already won far more than that by calmly and eloquently speaking truth to power. His call for getting rid of the Departments of Education, Energy, and Homeland Security was magnificent, when the others couldn’t name one federal typewriter they would sell-off.
But Ron’s persuasive (if not to the fascist Giuliani and the brownshirts in the audience) discussion of the immorality of US intervention in the Middle East, and the hatred and blowback it has caused, was one of the great moments in the history of modern American politics.
Let me add at least two comments of my own:
a) Ron Paul is never questioned on flip-flopping. His positions are so consistent that every time the moderator asks a question it speaks about why Ron Paul is running in the Republican ticket? The implication is: “Look, all these guys want to stay in Iraq; most have changed their position on abortion, education, and everything else under the sun; so why on earth would you run in a party when you are so committed to the Constitution and human liberty? At least, that’s how I see it.
b) I want to thank Rudy Giuliani for responding to Ron Paul. Because of your stern answer and your earnest (I know you are earnest) desire to continue to see our war efforts succeed in Iraq, and in the rest of the Middle East, and soon the rest of the world, you have made Ron Paul the leader in almost every poll in the internet and on the media. Further, you have established that Ron Paul is the only candidate that truly believes that American troops belong in America, not throughout the world, and that an aggressive foreign policy is a deadly foreign policy. I thank you Rudy.<>
Lew Rockwell links to the absurd media deletion of Ron Paul. Pajamas Media has taken out Ron Paul’s name on the basis of his percentile in the Gallup Poll. Never mind the superb placement of Ron Paul on major internet sites including MSNBC and others. However, the warmongers do not want to support war haters. This is their reason behind this despicable move:
Therefore, this week three Republicans who achieved one percent in the new Gallup Poll – Jim Gilmore, Mike Huckabee and Chuck Hagel – have been duly added. Mike Gravel (Democrat, week 16’s runner-up) and Ron Paul (Republican, week 16’s winner) have been removed from the poll because they did not reach one percent on Gallup. If and when those latter candidates again reach one percent, we will reinstate them the following week. Their supporters may be disappointed for now, but it is worth pointing out – and Pajamas Media takes no pleasure in doing this – that their successes on the Pajamas Media Poll evidently did them little good on national polls. We encourage Gravel’s and Paul’s supporters to work hard to make an impact on the next Gallup Poll, so we can put their candidates back on the list. The same goes for supporters of other candidates who have not yet appeared on our poll.
Here is the absurdity of it all: The Gallup Poll does not seem to think it is actually that important this far from the election. Gallup’s website reads:
Poll results at this phase — nine months before the first primaries and caucuses — do not necessarily bear a strong relationship to the reality that unfolds in the election year itself.
If it doesn’t bear a strong relationship, then why on earth is Pajamas Media deleting Ron Paul and Mike Grave’s name? One reason: The war must go on.
At support Ron Paul for president, they are serious about this grassroots campaign. Check it out.<>
One of my favorite articles written so far on Congressman Ron Paul is by Chuck Muth from CNS NEWS.com.
But Ron Paul’s candidacy deserves far greater attention and consideration by national Republicans who have clearly lost their way. GOP leaders in Washington who are still shell-shocked over the shellacking they took last November should stop scratching their heads and asking “What happened?” and start listening to Ron Paul. His campaign is all about the reasons so many limited-government conservatives stayed home or voted for a non-GOP option last fall.
I realize charisma is something necessary today in our world of entertainment, but charisma is not something we need in the Executive office. John Stossel and Gary Demar, both whom I highly respect and admire, said that they support Ron Paul’s platform, but in the end he is just not charismatic enough. Who needs charismatic leaders in the office? Are we so blinded by Hollywood that we believe that the man who will run the highest office in the country needs to awe the nation with his rhetorical abilities? Last I checked, Hitler was a not a good figure in world history. We need a serious man who is committed to a limited government; a man who will put an end to charismatic charlatans in Washington-this man is Ron Paul.<>
