Orlando Tea Party Network Message Board › My Changed View on Ron Paul

My Changed View on Ron Paul

Dick F.
Orlando, FL
Post #: 476
I have followed Ron Paul's political career for over 30 years and during that time I have had only one concern with his positions and that is national security. If Paul were to totally implement his expressed agenda on our military it would put our nation in serious danger. But I have thought about my positions.

I am still concerned about his national security position, but his position is far, far superior to the position of Barak Obama. Obama has taken us into military conflicts for domestic political reasons where there was no clear threat to our national interest. He is currently preparing bases all around the world to assist in US aggression without the approval of congress. He does not respect the wishes of congress or of the majority of citizens in our country and will follow his won reckless fantasies.

Ron Paul is a stronger anti-war candidate than Barak Obama by far. In a general election Ron Paul would be able to strongly counter every position that Obama would take. Paul by far offers the most serious threat to Barak Obama in the 2012 election. His economic positions would lead to immediate economic recovery. His regulatory positions would immediately shift our bureaucracy toward freedom and away from central planning. And even on national security he has taken much more principled positions than Barak Obama. Obama's anti-war coalition would find itself in a serious crisis of conscience. Now granted most of them are commited leftists and so they would remain with the inconsistent Obama, but those serious about their anti-war position would struggle.

Paul is now one of my top tier candidates.

I won't vote for Paul or Obama.

I won't vote for any man who has the support of any of the following:

White Supremacist groups
Libertarian "legalize it" groups such as NORML
George Soros
Anti-israel/pro muslim groups
Isolationist groups
Alex Jones (he and Ron Paul are like kissing cousins)


So you can see that Obama and Ron Paul, who both run campaigns based on smear tactics and bullying, can each check off several of those groups as having support. And if these groups give money and votes to a particular candidate, then who is the candidate really representing?

Not me, that's for sure...

My vote is for NOTA candidate this next cycle: NONE OF THE ABOVE.

You sound suspiciously like a certain troll who has been frequenting our site.

Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul said Thursday evening that Bush administration officials were gleeful after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks because it gave them a pretext to invade Iraq.

“Just think of what happened after 9/11. Immediately before there was any assessment there was glee in the administration because now we can invade Iraq,” the Texas Republican told a group of mostly young backers in Iowa. He went on to suggest officials are now setting the stage for an invasion of Iran.

Paul, who was tied for second in this week’s CBS News/New York Times poll of likely Iowa caucus-goers, is making a strong push in the Hawkeye state in hopes of scoring an upset victory in the first-in-the-nation January 3 caucuses. Paul volunteers have been working to convince Paul’s mostly young supporters — many of whom will be on holiday break from college when the caucuses take place — to be sure to make it to their caucus site.

Paul’s libertarian views — on the foreign policy front, he wants to dramatically reduce the U.S. military presence abroad and end all foreign aid — put him at odds with many Republican voters. A poll from Gallup this week found that 62 percent of Republican and Republican-leaning independent voters see Paul as an unacceptable nominee.

Dick, you are amazing.

How is that, you meet me at a tea party rally, and then every time I post here you call me a troll?

Typical Paulite. If they disagree with you, call them names, silence them, get them banned.

I had no idea that the tea party was a libertarian organization.

In fact, you sir, are the troll because you attack EVERYONE who does not share the same views as you.

Herb, the tea party is in dire need of committed members, and when you have people who behave like Dick, a grown man, mind you, it does nothing but push away other members.

I have already left several other groups because of the Ron paul madness, but if I leave this one, it will be because of Dick Fox and his immature, childish behavior.

People like YOU are essentially handing the white house back to Barrack Obama. Your Hubris is epic, and your ignorance and lack of judgment are beyond reproach.

Yes, let's make accusations with NO PROOF whatsoever and look to have people banned (ie calling them a troll is tantamount to banning) if they don't share our viewpoint.

I hope EVERYONE WHO IS DIFFERENT THAN YOU gets banned so that you can have the tea party and this meet up group all to yourself, you self-righteous, self-absorbed ego-maniacal pig.

Every time I post here, you attack me. Yet you misrepresent yourself as being a conservative by supporting someone who is a CLEAR libertarian, and you attack anyone who disagree with you.

So, I ask you this simple question:

Who is the real troll?

Hmmm, exactly which Tea Party Rally was it that we met?

After just seeing on the news that the tea party is supporting Newt Gingrich, I am contemplating
leaving the tea party. I do believe in giving people second chances and forgiveness etc. but Newt
committed adultery numerous many should we ALL forgive? Newt was charged with
85 ethics violations and 84 charges got dropped. He had to pay $300,000 of tax payer's money
back. Not only is he a crook, he is totally dishonest. Someone please tell me why I should vote
for someone with no character? or is that "acceptable" nowadays? I like Mitt Romney even though
he has changed his mind on several issues. Is the tea party not supporting Romney because he is
of the Mormon faith? I do hope not, but to me it is surely looking like they are!

Which TEA Party, they are so many of them, remember the TEA Party is WE the PEOPLE, and every one thinks for their self, we do not all agree on who's the best as you can see if you read the posts even in this forum.

Oh Romney was the media pick from the start !!!, what does that tell you, they picked McCain last time.

I think the tea party in general is so large (and so fragmented) that I have a hard time finding the right group
to join. I moved from Kissimmee, Fl to Orlando, Fl and joined (or stated that I would like to join) several
groups that were like minded in area, age, interests and political stance etc. I spoke to a guy in one Orlando
group the other day who informed me that he was a "coordinator for Newt Gingrich", two days later the media
claimed that Gingrich "has the support of the Tea Party" that was some quick "coordinating"! The media did
not state what group or from what state, so it gave the country the impression that the whole Tea Party movement in general is supporting Newt Gingrich! Too bad we all can't agree on ONE candidate and support him/her.......what a huge platform we would be! I am of the opinion that the Tea Party is so large and so fragmented with so many groups, that some may find it rather confusing. I shudder to think that one of the
Orlando Tea party groups is supporting an immoral crook like Newt Gingrich (just Google him). After proudly
serving in the United States Army for 28 years, I just want to be as proud to be part of "We the people" who truly want an honest, morally strong, true conservative to be our next Commander-In-Chief, who loves this great nation as much as I do!
