Sadly, that seems to be the push of the conservative right wing in this country as well. Just because its Christianity pushing the rules doesn't mean its not pushing rules.

Yeah, that's not what it says.

Really, then let me requote it for you:

wait, what? How are Christians pushing for a theocracy and not Muslims? Oh, because 33 states in America burned down the American flag at their capitals and raised the Christian flag???

What we've "forgotten" is how to be a free nation.


I'll agree to that.



Unbelievably, me too.

The terrorist won already. They didn't manage to take away our freedom. We did it to ourselves. Between the NDAA, the TSA, the NSA spying on American's, we no longer have freedom. Who is worse than a terrorist? The person that reacts improperly and causes more damage than the terrorist ever could have imagined. In this instance, the NDAA, TSA, and NSA are all terrorist organizations/implementations.

and they "don't like it" because they realize that many of those things, contrary to the Phatt-view really contribute to real freedom for most Americans.



Again, what is the Phatt-view?

Fucking-a.

The point is that the only thing most Republicans liked about Ron Paul was the "lower taxes." What they didn't like were his stancces on the military, the war on drugs, his desire to end the federal reserve, etc.

Except, the real sum zero bit is when the majority of real wealth is created by trading stocks and holding loans for interest, not selling products or generating real services outside of the financial industry supports. (watering plants in GE offices is a gain... accounting for stockbrockers, not).

WOW, so a Ron Paul supporter should continue to support Ron Paul even when he is no longer running for office/seeking support?

Or... to follow your brainfart all the way through, are are you saying that if Ron Paul drops out of the race, Ron Paul supports should not vote????? And if they make the intelligent choice to vote for someone who is running for office, then they cannot talk about any other candidate?

Fail is 100% your buddy. Even deeper fail, what the F does this have to do with 9-11??

You should vote for Gary Johnson who more closely aligns with Ron Paul's political views than Mitt Romney.

The views you express in these fora are a direct representation of how and why we are divided, so well done on that.

A Ron Paul supporter should support the candidate that actually holds Ron Paul's views. You know...Gary Johnson.

Ron Paul did make it a point to not endorse Romney, but he also said he wouldn't endorse Gary Johnson or anyone else (maybe looking out for his son's future presidential run).
