As a supporter of Ron Paul’s ideas of liberty and adherence to the Constitution as the final law of the land… I’d like to say that most of us aren’t too concerned with who is or isn’t a Jew.
Sadly, there are a few nutjobs in any political movement who do it great disservice by not setting a guard over the trapdoor that is their mouth: whether it be the handful of anti-Semitic conspiracy theorists or some crazed idiots at McCain rallies calling Obama an “Arab” and a terrorist, or worse, putting themselves in dire legal jeopardy by making threats against his person.
To be accurate, Obama is a non-dual-citizen half-Kenyan, and he is _friends_ with domestic terrorists.
I am friends with people who have garages, but that doesn’t make me a car… although I might have parked my car in their garage at some point in time. And I’ll be the first to admit that the antics of some of my fellow “Ronulans” really put me off of Dr. Paul during the first two thirds of the primaries — though I came to appreciate his message of non-interventionism far too late in the game.
We “Paul-Bots” are concerned with the creeping socialism on the so-called right, and the rocketsled-pace flight to socialism on the left. We are concerned about horrendous levels of government interventionism foreign and domestic, and the seemingly deliberate destruction of our republic via poor economic policies.
As for Ms. Palin, she seems like a very sincere, thoughtful woman - and I think she makes an excellent state governor. Unfortunately, she was woefully under prepared to be on the national stage, and makes little sense to pick a running mate from an arguably strong red state as opposed to someone like Tom Ridge from a key battleground state
I strongly detest the Mr. Ridge’s politics vis-a-vis his pro-choice stand, and his selection as VP would have been a bit of a deal-breaker for me even if I wasn’t already set against McCain for being such a liberal … I’m just sayin’, ya’ know?
