It’s a notorious fact that Ron Paul, along with all the other pro-peace supporters, live in their fantasy.
Not only is “pro-peace” a totally irresponsible and globalist view, I could only imagine the reactions the Europeans would have if one of their candidates labelled themselves “pro-peace”, but it’s also very stupid.
And once again… these statements are backed by no data, or any real proof whatsoever excluding the so-called blowback.
First off, if his ideas were true, than military intervention would have preceded terrorist attacks. That not being the case, this alone should infirm his statements.
Secondly, military skids are more common in the Russian army, in the French army, and in most of NATO’s forces than in the US Army. As a matter of fact, the US Army is the most and only military force to be a minimum transparent. Why isn’t there any blowback against these forces ?
Thirdly, the Muslim terrorists claim than above being anti-American, they are “Muslim extremists”. But if that was really the case, shouldn’t they be pro-American rather than anti-American knowing that the USA is the most open country to Islam of all non-Muslim States ? We allow full veil (burqa), religious signs, the construction of minarets and we actually condemn religious offense, which is not the case in most European countries for example. Moreover, and still unlike most European countries, we don’t have any nationalist or anti-Islam political party. We don’t have any congress or white house representatives that pride themselves in Muslim and Arab torture during the wars either, unlike the European Union.
Point four, where is the blowback against Germany for the Wehrmacht war crimes ? Where is the blowback against the Red Army ? Against the Chinese Army ? Surely, they have more war crimes to their actives than the US Army.
Lastly, saying that military intervention causes blowback is a massive oversimplification at best, and a blatant attempt at obscurantism at worst.
It’s like saying that all delinquents were previously victims of delinquency, all rapists were previously rape victims, all criminals were previously crime victims (all killers victims of kill ?).
Ron Paul is denying the whole predator/prey concept, as a matter of fact he is even denying the food chain. He is saying that if a chicken never eats foxes, when he crosses the road of a fox he will go unharmed.
Think of it this way, was there more disobedience in a concentration camp in 44 or in a rehab clinic nowadays ? If you can answer this question correctly, you are probably smarter than Ron Paul. Or less delusional.
War is not a catalyst for anti-Americanism, anti-Americanism (and especially ethnomasochism from our leaders) is a catalyst for anti-Americanism.
Ron Paul, may be the best “pro-peace”, “anti-government”, “anti-war” candidate. But for sure he is far from being a “pro-reality” candidate.
About every four years a very particular and intriguing event is held somewhere in the United States of
America Demagogy, and many signs show that this year’s event will be at least as lame as every other year.
Similarly to how other countries elect representatives to govern them and act in their best interest, we in the United States of
America Demagogy elect notorious globalists and demagogues to govern us, and act against our national interest.
You would be thinking that with the economic crisis that touches our country more then any other, with nationalist movements rising more than ever in Europe and every other country, with the disastrous results of half a decade of ethnomasochism and globalism, Americans would start to wake up and demand that their government start working in the national interest.
But apparently Americans are more concerned with gay rights, birth control pills and the legalization of marijuana.
These same Americans don’t seem to notice that they will soon experience a very painful blowback to use Ron Paul’s favorite term, once the Fed stops printing money. The errors of half a decade of ethnomasochistic governing and foreignism won’t be repaired with yet another bailout, and the consequences that Americans are starting to see are only the tip of the iceberg.
It was pretty funny last year to watch the Occupy Wall Street movement, yet another blatant excuse for anti-Americanism promoted by our ethnomasochistic media, because of the wide ignorance of the protesters.
Not only were they proposing even more international socialism to resolve problems created by international socialism, but really if they think our economic situation now is difficult, wait and see how it will be when the Europeans or the Russian take us over.
And no, there won’t be a massive bailout to magically solve our decades of trade-deficit, debt accumulation and other consequences to our anti-American globalist actions.
Even Ron Paul’s policies to cut government spending are widely insufficient at best, on the wrong track at worst.
As much as we need government spending’s limited, that alone won’t solve most of our problems. Germany, China, India, Denmark, France, Sweden Russia and most of the globe all have economies that are a lot more government depended than us (59% of GDP for Denmark, 56% for France) and their economy is in better shape than ours.
In 2008, we had to choose between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, but trust me in 2012 we will have both.
As long as American interests aren’t the top and only priority of the voters, you might as well keep Obama and his current administration because no candidate is projecting much change in our ideology.
And apparently, seeing the possible candidates for the 2012 elections, the public opinion hasn’t evolved one bit despite the economic crisis of 2012.
As for me, once again I will not vote for anyone.
I was considered voting Ron Paul earlier this year but seriously it’s not even worth the effort, and I wouldn’t want to encourage the globalist system with my vote.
As long as we won’t have American elections, based on American interests and not demagogy, voting will be as useless here as in central Africa.
No it’s not the name of a random porn movie, but simply the title I came up with when browsing through the questions Americans sent our president for the 2012 Ask Obama campaign on Youtube.
Similarly to last years program, users were to submit questions to the president and he would respond to the ones having the most upvotes.
Not only did 80% of the questions concern SOPA, and none concerned the economic aspect just the regular demagogy anti-American joke, a few questions stood out by the utterly stunning stupidity.
While our country is facing issues like growing ethnomasochism, massive public debt, huge trade deficit, and a dumb monetary policy that consists of printing tons of dollars daily to make up for the loses of our trade deficit, Americans are concerned about gay rights, the views god and the well being of the Iranian people.
Here are a few questions that are particularly brainless :
What legislation/actions do you intend to promote during your second term to either reduce or mitigate the impact of the contribution to global warming caused by the United States?
First question from an environmental hippie. If this guy had any scientific knowledge at all, he would know the United States aren’t causing any significant impact on global warming simply because global warming mostly isn’t caused by man activity. And even if it was, it’s absolutely not a priority when we are facing trade deficit and public debt.
Mr. President, For nearly 50 years we have had a stable financial economy under the Glass-Steagall Act. Will you make a goal to reinstate Glass-Steagall and protect working class Americans with adequate banking reform?
You heard the hippie, we need more regulations.
For how long you are gong to keep God out of your policies by promoting abortions, gay marriages etc? You will never be successful Mr. President. Without God you cannot achieve victory. Please remember this thoroughly.
When confronted with unemployment and debt, the American people are only concerned with… religion. Well good for them.
This dude is perfectly armed for facing the two decades of recession that lie ahead of us.
Unemployed, maybe, but all in the faith of God.
I am a US Marine stationed overseas. I wanted to know how you can justify to us the following. Members of the 3 government branches make 50 to 100 times what I make on a yearly basis. How can you justify this without insulting me or my fellow Marines
Maybe if you started using American weapons… I’m just saying.
der presiden what ar u gon to doe to stop the war on teror??
Maybe he should start the war on illiteracy.
I am 60. I have diabetes, ulcers, high blood pressure. I work full time for a small company and have no health insurance. I cannot get health insurance at a rate I can afford. Why have people like me been left out when it comes to health insurance?
Maybe we should print more money to weaken the dollar even more, so we can expend the already failing concept of collectivist health insurance.
When will we put an end to corporate personhood?
It seems like the socialists will try and blame everything and everyone in order to evade reality.
Bad economy ? Don’t want to accept the reality of economic war because it confronts your fictive hippie values of ethnomasochism ? Blame the corporations.
Blame the corporations. The new scapegoat for all your problems.
After the government, liberalism, the conservatives, the markets, Wall Street, Fox News, Michael Jackson, the 1%… we now offer you the corporations ! They are American, so you can go ahead and blame them nobody will label you as “racist”.
Notice : blaming any other cause than the ones pre-approved by Anti-American, Inc. will make you a “fascist”.
Please don’t pass SOPA and PIPA All “Americans” as well as “World” need an uncensored internet. That’s my request to you.
The “World” ? Why would Barack Obama, president of the United States of America (or what is left of them), even consider listening someone that advocates the interests of the “World” above the ones of this nation ?
Barack Obama is supposed to DEFEND the interests of our nation AGAINST the ones of the world. Like every other president in the “World”. I sincerely hope the person that wrote the question is not American.
Why aren’t the Banksters being prosecuted?
Hon’ble Prez, y r u still supporting Pakistan when u’re aware of their offscreen activity which is affecting India directly and other Asian countries indirectly?If this continues, in the nxt 50 yrs u’ll find only the Islamic flags across Americas.
Why don’t you ask the Indian government ? This is America.
Is it possible for the President of the U.S. to give a couple of green cards to European visitors who already tried to improve the mutual understanding between America and Europe?
Maybe stfu ?
The phrase “Too big to fail” has become synonymous with the 2007-08 financial crisis. If anything, banks and financial institutions have become even larger since then. When will the banking system actually be held accountable?
When it’s proven responsible of anything having to do with the 2007-08 financial crisis. For now, it’s not the case.
Exactly, Why can’t we close Guatanamo prison???
Anti-American propaganda once again. 20% of Americans unemployed, trillions in public debt, massive trade-deficit and the hippies still worrying about foreigners in Guantanamo.
When can we expect to begin seeing prosecution of Wall Street insiders responsible for the massive fraud that led to the collapse of our economy? There seems to be lots of evidence, but no charges or arrests.
“There seems to be lots of evidence”… on NBC.
Mr. President what do you think about Georgia and Russia conflict ?
I sincerely hope you are referring to the state of Georgia.
Mr. President, All your efforts to make America prosperous will be futile if your country for which the first foundation was laid by God fearing ancestors and then built on Biblical principles continue to dishonour and disregard God your Creator.
” All your efforts to make America prosperous”… that’s the point, there aren’t any.
Mr President: Will you support Gay marriages in the future? Gays and Lesbians should be able to receive the same status and benefits as other Americans.
Currently, the same status and benefits are unemployment and public debt. If you want them you can have as much as you want.
And a few good questions, buried under tons of crap as usual.
Are you prepared to cut spending in a meaningful way to ensure that the younger people of this country are not left paying for the mistakes of previous generations?
How would you create new jobs, if there is hardly no industry production, inside US borders. Today, around 90% of all products used by Americans, are made outside of the USA. Almost everything we buy and use today is not produced here.
