@ProtectJewsEvilArabs Ron Paul's "isolationist" would benefit Israel, The US funded Egypt's, Jordanians, Iraq and even Iran's military. Not so much the US but it's military complex corporations. Under RP that would stop, plus i'm sure he wouldn't stop anybody from going to Israel and helping out in a time of war, specially if the economy gets back on track and with all his tax cuts, you and I and many like-minded people can send cash to Israel to help out

@ProtectJewsEvilArabs Don't call me son, little boy. I'm MUCH older and experienced than you are.Newt is a zionist puppet that wants to keep US soldiers dying for corporate interests. If you vote for him you're a goddamned fool.

Are you talking to me, thou waste of human life? Maybe you should be more concerned about how shitty you are than brands of shoes.

I'm amazed at the ignorance of the RP haters as to what he stands for, what his history is, and what his policies are.

@ProtectJewsEvilArabs Wrong, stupid, Ron Paul isn't going to "defend" anyone but Americans living in America, just as it should be. He will, however, trade freely, and conduct diplomacy with ALL nations, just as it should be.

@ProtectJewsEvilArabs Actually technology is eschewed by Muslims in their home countries bc of what happened in the 80s with the leader or Iran…the more information that got back to the PEOPLE of Islam, the more they DIDN'T see a problem with the United States. Only AFTER we installed troops in Saudi did Islamic terrorism start in earnest.
Israel can protect itself, it has enough NUCLEAR weapons to turn the Arabic world to glass three times over, US can do entire WORLD

@ProtectJewsEvilArabs Newt talked to AIPAC….AIPAC is made up of Jewish AMERICANS. AIPAC turned down Paul, not the other way around….and for the final kicker, Netinhayu JUST STATED he supports the PAUL position of letting Israel defend itself WITHOUT interference from the United States. The leadership of the Israeli government just backed Paul….now what are your arguments going to consist of, SON(and by son I mean BITCH)?

@russianlegionaire Hold on now…Ron Paul WOULD NOT stop the sale of weapons to ANY country besides those that are in open hostilities with us. Let us be clear about this.

I am a damn conservative republican. Who says he doesn't. Oh you mean the fake Neo conservatives that act like a conservative. I just want to be left alone and leave everyone alone. You do that and more people can get along. We have been using force through laws and legislative actions and ect. Just tired of it. Now the Obamacare forcing us to buy PRIVATE products. Who do you think is going to benefit, unions, corporations, government lobbyist but the average joe gets its in the ass once again.

This is coming from a guy who voted for Obama yet I gave the largest donation I've ever given to a candidate to Ron Paul.

I hate Ron Paul's libertarian ideology when it comes to domestic economic policy. I think his idealogy blinds him to reality. Yet when it comes to actual EXECUTIVE POWERS Ron Paul is dead on when it comes to "enforcement. This is where Obama has been a disappointment.

I would LOVE to have Ron Paul as a choice on the republican side…

when the establishment points away from a specific canidate, you can be certain that He's the correct canidate to vote for. If people allow the mass media to pick the next president, then don't be surprised when you're standing behind a FEMA camp fence wondering what happened. Alex Jones, Ron Paul, Aaron Russo, FT NWO

@oolong2 I am curious as to what your ideology is for domestic economics? You wish the government to try and control the economy with its powerful hand? Ron Paul believes in free markets. If that is not your belief than what is? I mean, I guess its no secret that your not a conservative by nature.

oolong2

@ejpetersondub

"the government" doesn't control the economy, banks do. The Fed is a private organization created by banks for banks. Central banking was pushed by private interests way before we had a constitution.

Second policitians only have as much control as money interests give them.

Governments & money are both bullshit games created to manage power & resources.. They've always been tied to one another. "Free market" is simply a made up concept that has never existed.

ejpetersondub

@oolong2 You didn't answer my question. Governments certainly do have a hand in controlling the economy. Them giving subsidies or tax incentives is a clear example of that as well as tariffs. "free market" is a term used to describe lack of government intervention. i suppose it is the extreme side of pendulum that is opposite to a full command economy. so you gonna answer my question or give me another lecture?

oolong2

@ejpetersondub

I did answer your question. Focusing on all subsidies, tax incentives, and tarrifs as if removing them all or adding them all is a "magic formula" is nonesense. You study individual policies.

Saying "government has a hand in controlling the economy" completely ignores the money interests who control policiitans and manipulate the economy.

Secondly asking me about "Free Markets" when I tell you they don't exist and never existed is like asking me about Dragons.

ejpetersondub

@oolong2 Why do think there are money interests in politics? If the government had no hand in the economy then politicians wouldn't be worth the millions of dollars spent in campaign funds and lobbying every year. I didn't "ask" you about free markets, no part of that statement was a question. Take more English classes.

@ejpetersondub

Let me repeat….

"the government" doesn't control the economy, banks do. The Fed is a private organization created by banks for banks. Central banking was pushed by private interests way before we had a constitution.

Somehow you're under this impression that politicians decide everything on their own. Throughout history money interests have maniupulated politics as well as markets through banking, price fixing, commodity manipulation, and trusts since DAY ONE.

ejpetersondub

@oolong2 No need to repeat. I can read, that just makes absolutely no sense though. Yea, the fed controls monetary policy, which has a huge impact on the economy. The government still gives tax incentives to certain industries urging them to grow. That affects the economy plain and simple. To say that has 0 effect is nonsense. And again, let me repeat: money manipulates politics BECAUSE politics as an effect on the economy, otherwise they wouldn't bother. Its about incentives.

oolong2

@ejpetersondub

You're reading but not comprehending. What doesn't make sense? The Fed was created by bankers. They got together on Jekyll island and drafted the legislation. Then coerced a few key politicians to pass it. It's likely they even caused the 1907 panic.

The Fed is essentially part of an international banking cartel with virtually NO government oversight.

The "profit motive" is the incentive for all corruption. It has nothing to do with a government "boogeyman"

ejpetersondub
Guest

@oolong2 I understand that completely. But just because the Fed, being a private enterprise that has complete control over monetary policy, which in turn has a big impact on the economy; doesn't "prove" that government policies implemented by politicians don't also impact the economy.

@ejpetersondub

At one time presidents founght against banks and global finaciers. Andrew Jackson destroyed the last central bank. Lincoln decuded it was better for the gov't to print it's own money to fund the civil war rather than borrow it from the banks.

The Reagan/Carter election was the last to be publicly funded. The next election will likely be half a BILLION dollars all privately funded… Where do you think that money is coming from? This all has to do with "proft"

ejpetersondub

@oolong2 Yea I know the history of central banking. Indeed our government is bought by corporate interests. Hell they paid congress to recognize pizza as a vegetable!

@ejpetersondub

Which is why all corruption stems from the "profit motive".
