The author is doing his public duty to wake up Paul supporters to reality …

I have asked several normal-thinking Republicans [not the odd ones who are eagerly pushing Ron Paul to run for president] if there is any chance Paul could be GOP's nominated candidate and if he is can he be elected president of the United States … and only one POSITIVE answer to my questions topped it all -- YES ... when the crow turns white!

Since then I also tried to wake up Paul supporters to reality that only when the crow changes its feathers from black to white [similar to Paul devotees’ reverse intellectual mutation from bad to worse or of color-blind perception of reality where the black crow is seen as white] can he ever become president!

I do not begrudge Mr. Ludwig, the author of this article, of his intention in pointing out to the American public these "10 cardinal sins" of GOP presidential aspirant Ron Paul which unfortunately the Texas Congressman’s butt-pushers in rage described as "vomit" or puke. Their tantrum [and recklessness in the use of civil or polite language] is understandable.

What I am concerned about is what makes those supporters so angry when presented with the reality of Ron Paul’s candidacy, to that point where they become so …soooo unreasonable! The only logical answer to that is the fact that instead of going smart, going dirty is an escape route of those whose cerebral cubicle is empty. And I am sad to note that this proves what kind of supporters Paul have that came out of the trench.

Umm, the "living document" reference to the U.S. Constitution tells you all you need to know.  The person who wrote this is a statist... they would probably see eye-to-eye with the likes of Hamilton.

1. Opposing legislative favoritism and instead promoting individual liberty is always twisted by these types to claim racism.  They believe that people are incapable of decency sans government control and forced compliance to their definition of right and wrong.  These concepts are constants which should never be subject to the whim of politicians or the majority.  Societies are not perfect constructs, but they cannot be made so by governments, either.

2. Roe v. Wade removes the right of the states to determine what is best for their residents.  Notice that Ron Paul has never advocated for a ban on abortion, but rather the abolition of a federal mandate to not only tolerate it, but to accept it as a viable alternative to birth control.  His opposition to federal mandates like this is the promotion of states rights, nothing more.

3. Ron Paul opposes federal mandates upon the states for matters which clearly fall outside the purview of the federal government.  The federal government is, as the Founders stated repeatedly, the foreign agent for the states and an arbitrator in both interstate resolution and challenges to violations of the rights of individuals and the states.

4. Ron Paul's tax plan is to eventually eliminate the income tax as it is [erroneously] applied today.  While his intentions are indeed good, he may or may not be aware that his plan is at least on the right path to restoring the proper application of federal tax law.  The federal income tax, as it is written and as is the authority of Congress, applies only to a very limited scope of persons engaging in certain activities... none of which include merely living and working within the 50 states of the union.

5. Again, Ron Paul advocates the restoration of states rights.  After all, the states are independent Republics which are members of a union of nation states.  Where proponents of federal usurpation of states rights see a promotion of irresponsible behavior, Ron Paul sees the removal of the iron fist of tyranny from a central government overstepping its authority.

6. Article I Section 8 provides Congress with NO authority to contract or otherwise burden the states financially with membership to international councils.

7. Everyone is entitled to equal rights and protections under the law.  What promoters of same-sex marriage and other "glbt" type considerations want is SPECIAL rights and privileges, separate from those of everyone else.  What these dipshits don't realize is that marriage, at least with regard to legislative and regulatory recognition, is considered a privilege.  Should this not be a states rights issue as well?  The State's participation in a marital union is not necessary by law except when the parties to that union request special consideration from the government... do you really even understand what you're advocating here?

8. Read the 2nd Amendment and notice the last words... "the right of the People to keep and bare arms shall not be infringed."  We are ALL the "militia", and having our rights intact is indeed necessary for the security of a free state.

9. Again, Ron Paul feels that federal encroachment regarding matters clearly outside of Congress' Constitutional authority needs to be abolished.  Among those encroachments is the Federal Department of Education, the Federal Department of Labor, and a myriad of other usurping entities [illegally] granted regulatory authority over the states' prerogative for self-determination... do you understand what a Republican form of government is?

10. The Founders believed that the State (government in general) should be barred from creating laws or mandates which influence the People's right to the free exercise of religion.  However, this does not mean that those of any faith are barred from using the foundation of their religious faith in the furtherance of their oath to uphold and defend the Constitution.  The 1st Amendment is a one-way obligation, restricting the government... not the People.  To address the remainder of your point... removing both obligations and restrictions regarding education provides a free market for education, where the People can choose, with their votes and tax dollars, how best to utilize the public trust with regard to their children's education.

Again, statists will fail to see the logic behind the removal of the federal government from their daily lives.  They have become so enamored with the ability to legislate taste and to utilize the federal government to force their idealism upon the states, they wouldn't recognize true freedom if their life depended upon it... and in fact, their life as a free individual DOES depend on it!

WOW !!! What a compilation of reasons to vote for Ron Paul. I whole-heartedly agree with Phychictaxi. The writer of the article expounds the rhetoric of statists and usurpation of State’s Rights supposedly secured by the Tenth Amendment. Ten beautiful reasons to vote for RON PAUL !!!!

Exercise in futility …

If by any stretch of the imagination Ron Paul cannot be a GOP candidate for president, and if by any accident he is, this "unacceptable" Libertarian is nevertheless seen by the general public – and by millions of normal-thinking Americans across the country -- as an "unelectable" candidate!

Better wake up to reality as soon as you can before you suffer a cardiac arrest and die with shock with your dream that could never, never come true! This discussion about what Ron Paul thinks or wants to do or has done has NO meaningful purpose at all … it is an exercise in futility – just a waste of time energy.

Here’s why Ad Hominem cannot make you rational …

Psychictaxi Stop your Ad Hominem where you are good at, and prove to me where your mouth is. Examine what Paul say or do, and prove, if not to me, to yourself why, in spite of his courageous stand on critical issues [his courage is what I do admire], that there is even just an iota of a chance or of a possibility that the GOP will ever nominate him as its own Republican candidate for president, or if when the crow turns white and he becomes the GOP candidate for president, prove why he is NOT "unelectable".

In short, while millions of Americans all over the country against a handful of the likes of you, believe that he is "unelectable", come down to reality and prove to yourself -- not even necessarily to me -- that millions of Americans all over the country are all wrong ... that he CAN be elected president of the United States.

All of this jingoistic publicity that he is a good material candidate for president is only for the money, and you know it … at most RP is a messenger of free speech and that I agree – of the negativity of it, and in politics, a mouthpiece of the nation’s political "oddities" and most of the "unacceptable" thinking or ideas that describe him as an "unreliable" much more an "unelectable" candidate for president.

After this GOP presidential nomination campaign is over and Ron Paul comes out to be the GOP official candidate for president, come to me and tell me that I am terribly wrong … that I am an "epitome of the 'pot calling the kettle black'" – your uncalled for, unkind words. And if Ron Paul is nowhere or back to oblivion after this nomination process or when he did not end up as the GOP official candidate for president which I said he could never, never be, then no thank you for your stabbing compliments and apply it to yourself. I don’t deserve it because I am right, you deserve it because in cloud 9 you are the one who turns out to be terribly wrong.

I mean no offense to anyone, much more to Ron Paul, to you and the likes of you. I am just stating a wake up call to reality. If in your mind this is a sin, I don’t think that it is an unpardonable one.
