Lew Rockwell: “Ron Paul already won the election”

This year is an election year and an important topic to many Americans is the economy. On Tuesday, Maryland, Washington DC and Wisconsin will hold their primaries where voters will head to the polls to cast ballots for their GOP nominee. Although a Ron Paul nomination is unlikely, the Texas congressman still hasn’t bowed out of the race. Young voters continue to show support for the candidate despite the odds and Lew Rockwell, chairman for the Ludwig Von Mises Institute, joins us to discuss what’s next for Paul’s campaign.

Yeah, like writing in candidates ever works in a presidential election. Lol.

What author has been named?

Edgehead10075

So what you're basically saying is that Ron Paul is an idiot. He didn't write the newsletters, yet he did a terrible job of editing his own newsletter. He carelessly allowed racist nonsense to be written in his name, and you want this guy to be President? Lol.

Actually a lot of people think Ron Paul wrote them. Rachel Maddow has made a huge deal about the newsletters on her show over the past several months. You say that an author has been named. Who? Why should I believe that it's the truth and not just some guy taking the fall for Ron Paul?

Edgehead10075

BTW, "blacks are fleet of foot" isn't the worst thing written in those newsletters. Rachel Maddow has uncovered a ton of shit. The newsletters also referred to the Dr. King holiday as "Hate Whitey Day."

You keep calling me names. The first to namecall loses the debate. I guess I win.

Well, Obama is better than Ron Paul. I'll admit that.

I never said that opposing the Civil Rights Act proves that Ron Paul is a racist. However, he's still wrong, and society would be much worse off if the CRA wasn't passed.
We argued this topic months ago, and you tried to argue that Ron Paul only opposed certain parts of the Civil Rights Act. You avoided admitting that Ron Paul opposes the "big part" of the Civil Rights Act (Title II), which prohibits discrimination. Thanks for finally admitting the truth.

Edgehead10075

You also once said that if you're a conservative, you must believe that people have the right to hire/serve whom they want. That's just pure nonsense. Mainstream conservatives wholeheartedly support the Civil Rights Act and its prohibition on discrimination. Only right wing loons like you and Dr. Paul support this extreme brand of private property rights. Thankfully, Ron Paul is finished. Even his son endorsed Romney.

Edgehead10075

Oh, and you're an idiot, especially if you think Paul still has a chance to win the nomination.
Ever heard of zoning laws? Americans don't have unlimited private property rights.

Ron Paul's an idiot who has fooled many into thinking that he knows something about economics.

Edgehead10075
Guest

You're batshit crazy if you think Ron Paul is winning shit. Romney has over the 1144 needed. Paul doesn't have enough delegates to win, which is why his own son has endorsed Romney.

I've never heard of this Powell character. Do you have a source?

I don't see charities getting the job done now, RETARD.

BTW, go to the video entitled "Ron Paul ADMITTED to writing racist newsletters in 1996," uploaded by Vote3rdParty.

DIPSHIT.

I agree that he doesn't know much about economics, but I wouldn't call him an idiot. For one thing, him being able to convince people he does know something about economics is proof that his brain is quite functional. Smart people can be devastatingly wrong about many things and still be entitled to call themselves smart. Or at least non-idiots.

Edgehead10075
Guest

I see no proof. I'm sure you didn't look at the video I cited. Anyways, if Ron Paul DIDN'T write that racist nonsense, then he's a complete idiot for letting it get printed IN HIS NAME IN HIS NEWSLETTER FOR YEARS. That shit was written for years, which means Ron Paul didn't bother to edit or even read his own newsletter for years. The man is truly an idiot.

Edgehead10075

Also, Ron Paul was wrong when he predicted hyperinflation. He's also wrong in doubting evolution (despite being a supposed man of science, a medical doctor no less!). He's a fucking loon.

Edgehead10075

Romney's own delegates won't go for Ron Paul, just as electors hardly ever stray.

Edgehead10075

I don't do drugs. Everything I've said is intelligent. You're finished, as is Ron Paul.

Shane Harper
Guest

The Federal Reserve doubled the monetary base from $800 billion to $1.6 trillion, and the monetary base includes currency in the hands of the people and within banks, so the only reason why we don't have hyperinflation now is b/c most of that money is within the banks and that the Fed will most likely do QE3

Which election did Ron Paul already win, again?

Edgehead10075
Guest

We'll see. As of now, people like Krugman have claimed victory on that issue against the Austrian school economists.

Shane Harper
Guest

I would like to see Lord Keynes roll around in his grave when he realizes that Keynesianism fails. Krugman thinks that we should spend our way out, and the government has spent so much money and put so much deeper in debt but with no results. Japan made the same mistake in the early '90s and they can barely grow their economy b/c it's burdened by debt of almost 200% of GDP. Plus, Paul Krugman said that we need to begin the housing bubble in order to end the early 2000s recession. What a moron…

Edgehead10075
Guest

I'm not even arguing that I agree with Krugman on every single thing, just that he clearly knows more about economics than Ron Paul.
Did you know that, according to Keynesian economics, tax cuts are SPENDING? You can actually be a conservative and adhere to some Keynesian principles. The fact is that somebody needs to spend to get us out of a recession. Whether it's the government or the people is what the debate is about.

Edgehead10075

If Romney wins, the middle class people should get some kind of tax relief. Austerity alone isn't going to help the economy. However, I also can't support Obama's out-of-control spending that's putting us deep in debt.

Edgehead10075

Lol.

For a second, I thought that you really were a Paultard because they DO say shit like that.

Yes it does; that even as kids they can see how shitty Romney, Obama and the other corporate owned, uncaring, power hungry and corrupt fuckers are… Also says a lot about the intellect of the typical insipid, mindless sheep that follow them.

Im 16 from Ireland and i even know how corrupt your and mine govt. is. Yours is worse because your govt. think they rule the world and they can just go around attacking who they want. Only stupid brainwashed dopes who support the current govt like you wouldent know.

The people should follow the words of Ron Paul,he is a very smart man.if he would have been given the coverage on T.V. as much as the others he would have won hands down.Not enough people knew any thing about him at the time.Blame fox,cnn,nbc,cbs, for giving us the a-hole we have.

Edgehead10075

If anybody else said he didn't believe in evolution, you'd call the person an idiot. Ron Paul is special, though, right?

Edgehead10075
Guest

Ron Paul was wrong. First of all, he's predicted a financial crisis for over 30 fucking years, so EVENTUALLY he was going to be right. It doesn't take a genius to do that. Also, Ron Paul got the causes wrong. The cause of the recession is deregulation, not the Fed. Ron Paul would have turned the recession into a depression.

Edgehead10075
Guest

His opposition to the Civil Rights Act, Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security make him a loony. There, that's FOUR issues.

When did Obama expand the war in Iraq?

Obama "didn't change a thing" because the Republicans have been obstructionists. Now please go away.

BTW, Ron Paul LOST. So much for this video.
