New(?) Face of the GOP: Ron Paul

If you came here expecting a pro-Paul tirade…move along. Ron Paul won the CPAC straw poll. Fox News is trying to downplay that win after hyping the convention as the second coming of Christ.

I have given money to his campaign, stood on the road holding signs freezing, getting hassled by cops for holding those signs etc…

I would not do any of it again. I had rose colored glasses on, and believed that there could be an honest politician. I was proven wrong. Not just the gut feeling that Dr Paul’s campaign was being run by obvious retards, not pushing the offensive when word of mouth was going in his favor, not using all the money he raised effectively , ever playing ‘the nice guy’ when pushed…

Fox News is (publicly) scrambling and acting like they don’t like Ron Paul, all the while promoting the ‘Tea Party’ movement as ‘the public groundswell’, once it was co-opted by the Beck’s and Palin’s and such. They forget that the original Tea Partiers are the same group as Ron Paul supporters. They also don’t like him, but have him on all the time to discuss the financial meltdown and how badly Obama is doing (even though all Obama is doing is continuing the same thing that Bush was.)

The bottom line here is Ron Paul is the same old thing in another package. Ron Paul did not vote to repeal the Warner Defense Act (that got rid of posse comitatus) and also is backing hardline ‘Neo-Cons’ in Texas due to an agreement with the GOP that he would back incumbent Republicans no matter his ideals. Now I know that diplomacy and moderation are big tent poles of Paul’s ideals, but to take the money and run and then let his actions show that when rubber meets the road, those ideals of his are subject to barter… it’s the same old thing that we always see.

If you are going to judge a guy on his fruits…then do that. Don’t ignore things that are happening RIGHT NOW that show that he’s not all he’s cracked up to be.

Hey, if nothing else, remember he is hugely pushed by Alex Jones and …well… that is enough for me to withdraw support.
