Ron Paul, Hookers, and Heroin

How would you describe a perennial presidential candidate who insists in a televised debate that government has no more right to interfere with prostitution or heroin than it does to limit people’s right to “practice their religion and say their prayers”?

The phrase “crackpot” comes immediately to mind—and in any contemporary political dictionary that term would appear alongside a photograph of Congressman Ron Paul.
 
The Mad Doctor, who proudly consorts with 9/11 Truthers, announced his third race for the nation’s highest office on Friday the 13th (appropriately enough) by declaring that if he were president he never would have authorized a lethal strike against Osama bin Laden. The firestorm over this remark distracted attention from previous controversial comments just eight days earlier, when he used the first debate of the 2012 race to stake out exclusive territory on the lunatic libertarian fringe.

Asked by Chris Wallace of Fox News about his insistence that “the federal government should stay out of people’s personal habits,” and his specific opposition to restrictions on cocaine, heroin, and prostitution, the candidate claimed that social conservatives would nonetheless vote for him “if they understand my defense of liberty is the defense of their right to practice their religion and say their prayers where they want to practice their life. But if you do not protect liberty across the board it’s the First Amendment-type issue… You know, it’s amazing that we want freedom to pick our future in a spiritual way but not when it comes to our personal habits.”

Ron Paul -- Hookers and Heroin by Michael Medved.

"The phrase "crackpot" comes immediately to mind—and in any contemporary political dictionary that term would appear alongside a photograph of Congressman Ron Paul." Michael Medved.

Mike, Paul represents the politics of the street … street economics … street freedom, the "liberty" of the mob, and all the worms in the can with a label that says "The Angry Libertarian Freedom Fighters". FP.com where you published this "lecture"on Paul, is his "home" and that of his hand-clappers which you invaded. Anyone from the academe like you and me are "intruders". Better rub your skin with a repellant cream because like mosquitoes they are going to bite back!

Describing Paul as a "crackpot" is probably an understatement. Point me anything this "hero" of the macabre had publicly said that’s "normal", and if you can, I will tell you that you are so damn wrong. But I can’t say that you are so damn wrong because what you said about the "The Mad" doctor [your words], are all abnormal. All the abnormalities you have pointed out are grains of truth and for your own protection and comfort, you should have been a little bit dishonest or should have lied a little bit about him, get it?

The latest is what you have brought up about Paul’s publicly headlined oddities: "… government has no more right to interfere with prostitution or heroin than it does to limit people’s right to ‘practice their religion and say their prayers’ [???]". In the name of Jove, that's really a "woowww !!!".

Your man is a doctor of medicine, and yet ... The concept of freedom he is running for the 2012 presidential campaign includes your freedom and my liberty to get Salmonella, E. coli and Listeria, etc., and the right to spread an epidemic because he is protecting your freedom and mine to drink unpasturized milk that the FDA prohibits for the protection of the public. Remember how he fights for the kind of freedom [the freedom to drink unpasturized milk] he wanted us to enjoy …? He said, 'How much freedom do we have if we can't even drink unpasteurized milk?" -- Paul. Calibrate that and find the intensity of the earthquake it creates in your mind.

Go back to his 2008 political platform when he ran for president … 911 was not the fault of Al Qaeda terrorists! The American people and their government are to blame for this infamy because they went to the Middle East and poked their nose on Islam’s affairs! No, don't calibrate this -- the American public had already spat on it in 2008... especially when he kept on hammering that it was righteous for Osama bin Laden to wage a Holy War against us, "The Infidels".

If he gets elected president, he wants America, the world's economic giant and the mightiest nation on the planet, without a Central Bank [oh, how he hates the Federal Reserves which he thinks is run by financial "pirates" and "thieves"], a country without an income tax [he wants IRS abolished], a world without a United Nations, and a "stay-home" foreign policy for the United States ... and more of this kind.

So Mike, want some more reminders how damn right you are?

We can go on and on and immortalize this man. But then what’s new?

Ask Paul and his supporters. Bakadude
