Ron Paul

For a strong military, I convinced a Ron Paul support using a similar argument

by Skip November 3, 2013

“…the near-elimination of piracy was a major accomplishment of the two centuries of British/American naval dominance…” Although it was more of a generalized one than that below, I did make the case during the Prez Primary with a very strong Ron Paul supporter that a strong Navy did have a definite role to play with […]

“Good Paul”- “Bad ‘Paul”

by Steve MacDonald February 5, 2013

After the death of Navy Seal Chris Kyle, Ron Paul Tweeted… Chris Kyle’s death seems to confirm that ‘he who lives by the sword dies by the sword.’ Treating PTSD at a firing range doesn’t make sense.  Yesterday, Rand Paul Tweeted this… Chris Kyle was a hero like all Americans who don the uniform to […]

We’re going down, folks.

by Tim Condon November 29, 2012

But this time there’s going to be a documentary for the historians to study; it’s aptly named The Bubble. The movie explains the coming economic crash, including “Who caused it, who called it, and what’s next.” Included in the movie are appearances by economists, commentators, historians, and investment experts; they include Thomas E. Woods, Jr.; Jim […]

Ron Paul’s Farewell Address on the House Floor

by Steve MacDonald November 15, 2012

It’s over 48 minutes so grab a beverage and a snack.  Good speech.  Compelling questions.  (And yes,  as a matter of fact I do expect Tim to re-post this having not noticed I put it up already.  Dig!) Here’s a meat and potatoes RP quote for you to chew on… “I’ve thought a lot about […]

Ron Paul and Ann Coulter….

by Tim Condon November 12, 2012

Ron Paul recently said “My presidential campaign proved that standing for freedom brings people together. Liberty is popular, regardless of race, religion, or creed.“ On January 10, 2012 Ron Paul came in second in the New Hampshire GOP primary, garnering 23% of the vote. He never came close to that vote percentage in any subsequent primary.

A reply to a commenter on Steve’s “About All that Ron Paul business…”

by Skip September 21, 2012

which can be found here concerning the RNC, delegates, Ron Paul speaking / not speaking, nomination, and the like.  His problem was not with Ron Paul but with his supporters.  I concur (having had to deal with nastiness of some even back in 2008).  So he (and I) expected some commenters in opposition and our […]

About Those Ron Paul People…

by Tom August 31, 2012

Yesterday, fellow-Grokster (and blogger-extraordinaire), Steve, put up a post called “About All That Ron Paul Business“, where he makes some good points.  Being a Ron Paul supporter myself, I figured I would provide my point of view.  After all, there are always two sides to an issue.  Not intending to start a volley, just to […]

Email Doodlings – Libertarians HAVE finally made a political impact – are they about to throw it away?

by Skip March 11, 2012

I’ve been in a writing funk for a while now – too many targets, no focus, trying to run for re-election in my town, a couple of other projects, and I find myself stretched too thin (yeah, self-induced again).  However, the following came over the gunwales a few minutes ago, and the fog (smog?) that […]

I think this might prove to be troublesome to Ron Paul?

by Skip February 26, 2012

“Iran’s warriors are ready and willing to wipe Israel off the map,” That from the Iran’s Deputy Defense Minister, Ahmad Vahidi.  Now, he is saying this in context of Israel attacking Iran to stop the latter from getting the bomb – a terse warning of “don’t try it”. The real problem is, however, is the […]

Ron Paul’s Newsletters

by Steve MacDonald January 28, 2012

In the last election cycle almost everyone on the center right used “voting for bills without reading them” as a campaign cudgel.  So I think it is safe to say that we have some expectation of accountability for what our elected officials put their name to. When talking about Presidents, we have an equal interest […]

Wednesday Morning Coffee – Ron Paul Third in Iowa

by Steve MacDonald January 4, 2012

An “ends justifies the means” approach to a Republican primary is how ‘Republicans’ for Ron Paul justify begging Democrats to register as Republicans or independents so they can screw with the results of the GOP Primary to their candidates advantage. In Iowa, assuming it worked, this netted Congressman Paul a decent third place showing.  We are […]

Anyone Object To A Vice President Ron Paul?

by Steve MacDonald December 28, 2011

I think everything Ron Paul stands for deserves as much oxygen as it can get (for good or bad).  But no matter what the effect of that vetting, no matter how well he does in Iowa and New Hampshire, I still don’t see a path to the nomination.  (This does not make me a neo-con, […]

Email Doodlings – Really? We HAVE to support Ron Paul because if we don’t, he’ll run as a 3rd Party and Obama will win

by Skip December 20, 2011

Essentially, this is the political equivalent of “don’t make me mad or I’ll kill myself!”.  Another way of putting it is “I’m Sampson (in my own mind, anyways) – if you make fun of me, I’ll bring down your house!”.  Here’s the assertion: Here is my claim: Republicans have no choice whom they support. They […]

The Assertion that was made was in response what I posted here: You asked the question as to whether we need to wait until American lives are lost to respond….To me, this means that there must be imminent danger—and that is a threshold that I believe none of our recent wars has crossed—and all other […]

by Skip December 14, 2011

More meanderings from on this: Despite the (still) prevailing hawkishness within the GOP, I feel that the tides are turning. Republicans are starting to understand that we are FLAT BROKE and we can’t financially sustain these wars. We are being bled dry just like the mujahedeen (al Queda) did to the Russians in Afghanistan. I […]

Would Someone Please Ask Ron Paul…

by Steve MacDonald November 7, 2011

Are we convinced a Nuclear Iran does not assist in the development of a Nuclear Syria, or Turkey, or some other Middle-East nation? We are to believe that a Nuclear Iran, which has been moving conventional weapons to Hezbollah and others would never think of doing the same with other weapons?
