I couldn’t think of a better title. This guy is insane, inconsistent, a liar, a fraud and is like a cult leader.
I have a lot of Conservative friends that love Ron Paul – I get railed on with the “Constitution” every time I dare speak up against Ron Paul. I get sick, and it is disturbing to me that many good conservatives are getting led down the garden path by a charlatan like Ron Paul.
Before I even get in to his blatant hypocrisy and double-spoken lies I start with Ron Paul’s contempt for the greatest Republican of recent history – in 1987 Ron Paul said that the Reagan Administration was a “Dramatic Failure”. Now, Paul attempts to invoke Ronald Reagan in his ads!
Ron Paul refused to endorse John McCain in 2008 – stating that he could find nothing in common with McCain. John McCain scored 90% and 100% from the American Conservative Union in 2009/2010. Ron Paul preferred instead to endorse Cynthia McKinney – the Green Party Nominee and Ralph Nader, the far-left Attorney that was the Independent Nominee.
Ron Paul is one of the largest contradictions in political history – all the while piously pointing a finger of judgment at Mitt Romney.
The Congressman says he supports a strong national defense and emphasizes his military service, but he was an Air Force doctor. Today he wants to cut $1 trillion out of the Pentagon budget which would end all modernization and readiness programs. He would abandon NATO and abolish the CIA, the Department of Homeland Security and the Patriot Act.
He would give up America’s veto power in the UN Security Council as well as all military assistance to Israel – under the guise of stopping foreign aid. 85% of the money given to Israel is military support.
Ron Paul claims to be pro life – and attacks Mitt Romney for his record on the life issue. Problem – it was Ron Paul, not Mitt Romney that scored 65%, 75%, 65% from NARAL from 2004-2006. Romney was given a perfect 0 by Naral in his 2007-2008 Presidential bid.
While accusing other Republicans of being liars – here is part of Ron Paul’s record on the truth: Paul falsely claims – Palestinians are starving and confined to a “concentration camp”; the United States financed Osama bin Laden during the first Afghan War; the CIA is behind the sale of illegal drugs; there is an “international conspiracy” focused on the non-existent North American Union.
… and this idiot wants to be President!?
I’m not done.
Anti-Iran Resolution? – No.
Unborn Victims of Violence Act? – No
Welfare Reform in 1996? – No
Congressional Earmarks – YES! One of only 4 Republicans in 2011 to request Earmarks!
Free Trade? – No
Open Borders? – YES! Received an “F” rating from Numbers USA in 2012 – only one Republican scored worse than Ron Paul
Legalize Drugs – YES! (state’s rights, you know)
Defense of Marriage Act? – No (State’s Rights, once again)
Taxpayer Funded Abortion? – Yes! (State’s Rights)
Ron Paul believes that the 10th amendment gives him the right to vote Pro-Choice, Pro-Gay, Pro-Narcotics and grandstand as Pro-Life, Pro-family and Pro-Health!
Ron Paul is a colossal fraud. The claims that he is insane derive from the conspiracy theories he espouses from the lectern – and only a small part are relayed here.
The Coup’d’etat??? Ron Paul received an 80% rating from the ACLU in 2011.
Mr. Paul’s record is so far out of the AMERICAN mainstream that no one in the Center, Center-Right or on the Right should ever take him seriously.
