They were caught in so many lies in front of Congress. From the WH radio silence we know the president doesn't give a shit.

I have a friend that says Ron Paul makes sense for five minutes on any given subject, and then goes off the rails.

I note that the video clocks in at 4:50...

That's unfortunate since the guy predicted everything that's happened in the last decade back in 2002. He's a "prophet", ie someone willing to speak the uncomfortable truth, but you'd have to be open-minded and prone to cognitive thinking to bother giving him a chance.

I always know when someone is telling the truth about our government. People want them to shut up and hate them for it. The truth is always uncomfortable.

Yeah, I'm just too stupid and closeminded to be impressed with him, I guess.

((yawn))

I'm sure I've done more research then his detractors who read Salon and Huffpo and "think they know", research like looking up his voting record, reading his books, verifying his friends like Kucinich and Napolitano. So the PT Barnum thing while cute means fuck all.

I have a friend who can tell you everything there is to know about WWII because he researched it. I have another friend who thinks he knows everything because he has the History Channel.

You're free to change the channel if you don't like the thread is what I'm saying.

I have no problem with the thread; I'm sorry my opinion is so upsetting to you.

I'm overjoyed that you have friends.

But exactly what is your opinion. You seem to dislike Ron Paul but can't seem to say why.

I neither like nor dislike the man.

Like most libertarians, he lives in a dream world.

I confess that I don't understand why anyone would take him or any other libertarian seriously, but I bear him no animus.

the guy who never met an earmark he didn't like and who believed in term limits for everyone but himself and then put his son into the family business.

i think you might want to characterize it as he thinks his ideas are silly. that isn't dislike

I'd put it as he was an established anti-establishment candidate.

Some establishment types really hate him.

Either way it's just emotional. Just trying to see if there's anything rational there.

Words have meanings; write that down so you don't forget.

I've already given my opinion on libertarians; if you need further clarification, I suggest a local ESOL class.

There's nothing emotional about it.

Do you always impute like this?

I realize that you're a pedant, but sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.

I get what you're saying as it's antithetical to be libertarian and seek and hold statist office. Back in the 90s I joined the Libertarian Party but eventually realized it was contradictory and quit.

So no rational criticism to offer up for discussion?

But let's get back to the topic which is really not Paul but his thoughts on imperialism. Here he is in another interview on it....

Yes, most of those libertarians live in dream worlds where they do things like juggle kittens instead of start businesses and travel the world.

((smirks))

It is you who seems to be living in one, but whatever. I'm sure Berwick is having a good laugh over it. Now, back on topic, did you bother to watch the video or just trolling?

I think you're in the wrong thread then. This is about the NSA and a video. What did you get out of it?

Well, he's right, as usual. If a man like Ron Paul can get a radical leftist like me to not only like him, but support him, there's something there worth looking at.

Which is why, of course, his detractors crawl out of the woodwork like damn cockroaches any time he speaks.

Random insults from Ron Paul worshippers who seem to have a strong emotional investment in him.

I was shocked.

This thread is about the NSA and the video on the NSA is an interview with a former representative. People hear "Ron Paul" and lose their minds. Bringing up that the thread is about the NSA and not Ron Paul is appropriate because we never get to talk about it on here. It always breaks down into something else.

Now if you don't care about spying, gtfo and go start a thread on why Ron Paul sucks or whatever. I give fucks. I personally find the charter of the NSA anti-American and their behavior creepy. Each day we find out (usually from foreign presses like Spiegel or the BBC) something new.

The fact that they've been cooking this for a long time pisses me off. It also pisses me off personally when there's this whole big section called "the pub" and a better section called "the hole" where I can call so and so a dick and tell them to suck a few without anyone getting banned. People can call Ron Paul a crusty old fart or whatever.

This thread is about the NSA and spying and the interview happens to be by Ron Paul.
