I feel the need to write this post as I've seen some surges in polls regarding Ron Paul. I know that you can't put much into polls involving Ron Paul because typically the one that counts (elections) show a much different result. Anyway, I feel like I need to write about this. There is a lot of misinformation out there on him. I find that his supporters are literally marketers for him and I mean marketing in a way of selling his ideas, not really giving you a fair shake.

I think I can give you much better facts on him since I was a supporter back in my more "ideal" time in life. Since then I've smartened up and became much more rational. In that time I learned a lot of the discussion points and the way things are argued. My Ron Paul facts will be very accurate and I know a lot of his fanatical supporters won't like that. If you're one of those people, eat me.

Ron Paul is a Racist

Don't let anyone, ever, convince you that he is not. Fanatical idiotic Ron Paul supporters may try to convince you otherwise. About 10-15-20 years ago Ron Paul produced letters to supporters in his community and mainly in his area of Texas.  These letters are the items you really need to read. This is the true ideological point of Ron Paul and a huge part of his followers. And there's a lot more in there aside from racism

Let's review some of the quotes:
  • "Order was only restored in LA when it came time for the blacks to collect their welfare checks." - Ron Paul on the LA riots (June 1992)
  • "Given the inefficiencies of what D.C. Laughingly calls the 'criminal justice system,' I think we can safely assume that 95% of the black males in that city are semi-criminal or entirely criminal." - Ron Paul in 1992
  • "We don't think a child of 13 should be held responsible as a man of 23. That's true for most people [white people],  but black males age 13 who have been raised on the streets and who have joined criminal gangs are as big, strong, tough, scary and culpable as any adult and should be treated as such." - Ron Paul in 1992.
This is just a small selection of what is out there. I suggest you find actual copies of the newsletters on the internet and read them for yourself. There's more in there than just racism. There's conspiracy theories and the typical "Jews own the world" type crap.

Anyway, Ron Paul supporters and Ron Paul himself have a very pathetic excuse for this. They say it was taken out of context. Oh, but than they said, it's completely fabricated. Oh and about the time Ron Paul began more Republican runs he has said he didn't write them. With different excuses to explain this, you can pretty much tell that he was involved. Even if you buy into the fact that someone else on his campaign wrote it and sent it out (as a letter with Ron Paul's name on it) you should never be able to get away with it. No politician could live this down yet Paul supporters think it's a conspiracy against him by the "media".

Ron Paul is an Isolationist

This is a point that makes Ron Paul supporters blood boil. I think the main reason is that it is so true, but they have an excellent rebuttal for it. If you bring up the isolationist point you'll often hear something along the lines of "he's not about war. He's about being friends with countries and having free trade with them." It does sound nice and very peaceful, but it doesn't negate the fact that he's an isolationist.

For example, Ron Paul is against GATT, NAFTA, FTAA and every other single form of a free trade that has ever been introduced in Congress under the guise that it isn't "true free trade". There's also the other excuse which is a conspiracy, world government type deal, but I'll save that for another bullet point.

It's true that these agreements aren't technically "free trade" as there are rules and regulations. Just as there are rules and regulations in the United States on "trade" within it. In the world we live in, we need agreements to liberalize trade and make it easier. Anyone with a brain knows that these agreements are progress to a freer world and freer markets.

Ron Paul's view on free trade is known as unilateral free trade. This is where he executes a free trade in and out of the country, just on the US side. He has no desire to negotiate an agreement with other countries because he doesn't believe in it and he doesn't like telling other countries what to do.  Despite your opinion on whether this is a better form to achieve free trade is up to you, but we can all agree that it is an isolationist point of view.

The other point is that he doesn't seem to care about the world outside the United States the immediate effect on the country. If you go back 250 years, it was quite easy to hold the Ron Paul position because the world was a different place. If the British were sending troops over to fight, it took them a month to cross the Atlantic. Today, we have intercontinental ballistic missiles. We have technology that can destroy the lives of millions in a matter of seconds. This same technology is being pursued and already achieved by theocratic nuts and dictators.

You just can't hold a position like this. It isn't rational. 

Ron Paul on Iran

One of the most troubling Ron Paul facts are his idiotic and completely dangerous views on Iran. Despite all the racist, conspiracy theories and all his odd policies the scariest thing I've ever heard him say is that Iran has a right to nuclear weapons and we have no right to stop them. This is very dangerous, anti-man, anti-mind talk.

Libertarians and Ron Paul are very emphatic about rights, as am I. The difference is that libertarians don't really know where rights come from. We have the right to free speech, but a libertarian couldn't tell you where that right comes from. They'd probably say the constitution, but that doesn't really get down to the core. Rights don't come from God and rights don't come from existing. It's this unknown that inevitably leads to Ron Paul supporters (and libertarians for the most part) to defend Iran and defend the "rights" of Iran.

What's worse is that you often hear a blaming of American and a blaming of the free world. It's the core points (or lack thereof) of libertarian philosophy that leads libertarians to the point of view that Iran has equal rights, the same rights that a free democratic society has. This is a severe and dangerous look at the world.

Rights are in fact born out of the requirement to live your life properly and to the best of your ability. When rights are taken away, the lives of people suffer and are often lost. This same thinking applies to governments, but not equally. A free democratic country is better than a theocratic dictatorship. Dictatorships and theocracies don't have rights.

This means that we don't have to give Iran the benefit of the doubt. This means that we don't have to wait and avoid a preemptive strike. We don't owe a dictator anything as a free society. We don't have to listen to them. 

Rational thought tells us that crazy theocracies cannot have nuclear weapons or weapons of mass destruction. We don't owe them an explanation. We don't owe them a benefit of the doubt. We owe nothing less than destroying the capabilities that lead to this.

Not only has he expressed this dangerous opinion, but he just expresses factual incorrect information on the subject. In the past, Ron Paul said that Iranian democracy is a model for other countries in the Middle East. Sounds like a nice statement, but Iran is a theocratic dictatorship.

Ron Paul also says that there is no evidence that Iran is building nuclear weapons. Well, there is the IAEA report that was released November 8 2011 that says so. He says that there is no credible evidence. Of course, Ron Paul would never listen to the IAEA because they're a branch of "world government" which exists to take over the world and all the rich Jews will steal his gold, or something like that.

Ron Paul is the king of Conspiracy Theorists 

I wish I could show you a video I seen on Ron Paul's Congressional website a few months after 9/11. This was a time before Youtube, as I remember watching the video through Windows Media Player. Ron Paul was standing in front a crowd in his town speaking and he said that the government was pulling the wool over the eyes of America. Literally coming out and saying that it was an inside job. Go find the newsletters he wrote about 15-20 years ago and you'll see plenty of conspiracy theories.

With the popularity of the internet growing and the ability to share information, Ron Paul has become more popular and has really toned down the conspiracy stuff. But he still has the underlying words where he almost comes off as one. This attracts a lot of conspiracy theorists to him. It's no coincidence that the vast majority of Ron Paul supporters believe in whacko conspiracies.

I know that is a very generalized and subjective statement,  but serious go to a Ron Paul forum and just lurk. Read what they say. Whacko people.

And this is something that doesn't stop with 9/11. If you believe in this type of crap you almost guaranteed believe in "the Jews" are behind (insert whatever). The Jews run the media. The Jews are part of the New World Order. The Jews run all the bailed out banks. There is absolutely no end to the amount of retarded conspiracies that savages like Ron Paul supporters come up with.

Even though Ron Paul has shut up about Israel and "the Jews" recently, it can still be found on his newsletters. The conspiracies against Jews are the ones that annoy me the most. Conspiracy theories in general piss me off, but when it involves Jews it comes from the most vial place and it just disgusts me.

But the conspiracies don't stop there. One of the Ron Paul facts that you probably hear about was his opposition to the "NAFTA highway". He says he opposes it for "sovereignty" reasons. I say he opposes it because he views NAFTA in general as a way of building a "North American Government" and eventually world government type deal. The fact is that it is just a road. It's made of asphalt and you drive your car on it. It's not a conspiracy. It's a road.

Ron Paul's favorite conspiracy theorist is Alex Jones who runs two websites known as InfoWars and PrisonPlanet. I will not link to these websites as I don't want to do them any favors. Alex Jones is literally screwed in the head. It's not like this guy has one conspiracy, it's that everything is a conspiracy. This includes con trails to 9/11 to police state to UN troops taking over the United States to brain washing chemicals in the drinking water. Absolutely crazy stuff. Ron Paul is a continued guest on his talk radio show. Continued. This guy is insane. Look up his Youtube videos and see the crazy stuff. I can't believe people exist like this.

Ron Paul hates Gay People

Often Ron Paul supporters will try to show a softer and gentler side of Paul that is for the LGBT community. They have a quote from him saying that he views all of God's creatures equally or something like that. And I often hear them say that he's against the amendment to ban gay marriage. Yet again, don't be fooled by this.

The Ron Paul newsletters, yet again, expose a much different story and an extreme view on gay people. He said that gay people should be rounded up and quarantined from society because of AIDS. This sums up his view right there. There is nothing else to be said on this topic because of what he has said in his newsletters. That opinion is based on nothing more than bigotry and hatred.

See what his buddy Alex Jones says.

Ron Paul Hides Views "Constitutionally"

You ever notice that Ron Paul and his supporters talk a little too much about the constitution instead of coming out and just saying what they believe. This is a planned act because they can hide more radical opinions of him. The way that Ron Paul interprets the constitution is that there is very little power that the Federal government has. We can all argue the degree of this statement, but it's a convenient way to hide your opinions.

For example, there is no where in the constitution that gives the federal government power to regulate or define marriage. So when you hear a supporter saying Ron Paul is against federal attempts to ban gay marriage you're not getting the whole story. Ron Paul is against gay marriage. He doesn't like it, and he doesn't want to see it happen. This is something that he supports on a state level or a municipal level.

If you get down into the core beliefs of Ron Paul and his supporters you'll find a very clueless belief. One of the big ones is that Ron Paul actually wants to live in a religious theocracy type government, but it has to be on the state level. He's a proponent of government and religious mixing. He doesn't believe the separation of religion and state, which I think is bad.

Don't be fooled when you hear Ron Paul play the constitution card because he's really working to hide a more offensive position.

Ron Paul doesn't believe in Evolution

Stupid. He's a doctor as well, and he doesn't believe in evolution. Absolute complete retard. What else can I say.

---

These are the big Ron Paul facts that I've displayed here. I bring this from a unique point of view and I hope I illustrated a lot of the main points you should take away from this. I'll probably end up coming back to this and writing more because I literally get pissed off thinking about him and the stupidity of him. I'm hoping this changes minds and makes the world a better place by turning people off of him.

Shortly after posting:

I'd like to add something that shows a lot of what I'm talking about. I was going to post a video of Mark Levin talking about Ron Paul. I vaguely know who Mark Levin is and I don't really know much of his views. Though I do know that he's against Ron Paul and I know he has boycotted such events that allowed Ron Paul to be involved.

I thought instead of posting the video, I could post a picture as a picture speaks louder than words.


Edit Jan 15 2012:

Found a nice site dedicated to exposing Ron Paul supporters. A very interesting look at things as Ron Paul supporters are worse than Ron Paul himself.
