Rep. Ron Paul is One Crazy Motherfucker

Saturday, October 8, 2011

Republican presidential hopeful Rep. Paul has published newsletters monthly under different titles over years; Ron Paul’s Freedom Report, Ron Paul Political Report, The Ron Paul Survival Report. The Texas OB-GYN and former U.S. Air Force surgeon was first elected to Congress in 1976. To be charitable, his views are certifiably insane.

    I’m convinced they’re putting something in the water in Texas to make people squirrelly.

  2. Joe in Colorado says:

    Ron Paul is obsessed with the Federal Reserve. He says things like the Federal Reserve is under the control of Britain’s House of Windsor and the people running it go back to early Rome. His warped mind is the stuff that would land most people in an insane asylum but he landed in the US Congress.

  3. Harry says:

    What “activities” is Ron Paul referring to?

  4. R.J. says:

    The Minutemen/Tea Party loves him because he’s a stupid bigot.

  5. Woodcliffe says:

    I never understood why the Libertarians embraced him? He’s not a libertarian: he’s a fringe dweller and a conspiracy loon.

    Clue: patting him on his withered old ass is not one of them.

    Ron Paul needs to return to his parallel universe — and stay there.

  7. DMason says:

    Ron Paul needs to crawl back to Texas and STFU. He’s never going to be president. The guy is a regular nut job and if his views are a reflection of his constituents then round them all up and put them in a mental hospital.

  8. Yet, the voters in Ron Paul’s district keep reelecting him?

    I don’t pretend to understand Texas. They had a perfectly good governor in Ann Richards but tossed her out for George HW Bush’s coke-head, drunkard kid? I mean, seriously? Texas went from surplus to deficit in six months. Sound familiar?

    Bush did the very samething when he became president. Clinton’s $160 billion dollar surplus was gone in six months and the country never recovered.

  9. The Real Adam says:

    Why are members of the radical right obsessed with all things gay?

    Ron Paul is just bizarre and while his nuttiness may appeal to the voters in Texas, outside the Lone Star state, he is viewed as a dangerous, homophobe and a racist. Paul said, “If you have ever been robbed by a black teen-aged male, you know how unbelievably fleet-footed they can be.”

    ya, what Paul H said…. “compare me with the alternative” … had big discussion with some folks yesterday…. none are real happy with Barack…. the sentiment is that they will not vote ‘for’ him…. but cannot vote ‘for’ ANY republican!! It is no longer a case of voting for the lesser of two evils…..the evil of the right, the Perrys and Pauls the Cains and unables….. make Obama seem so much better. just saying.

  11. feminazi says:

    I never understood Ron Paul or how the libertarians embraced him. Unless I don’t fully understand what the definition of a libertarian is. Ron Paul is a far-right conservative and his views are radical. Particularly troubling was the comment he made that an uninsured person should be allowed to die. He seems cruel and heartless — a perfect conservative in 2011.

  12. Tiny Dancer says:

    Two words for Ron Paul and his followers: FUCK YOU.

  13. Pechanga says:

    Ron Paul is an old man.

    Usually, with age comes a degree of wisdom or at very least, the maturity to accept peoples, races, creeds and sexual orientations you may not take a hankering to. In Ron Paul’s case, he just comes across as old, spent, ignorant and stupid.

    Where the hell did this quote come from? I don’t see it in the article you referenced. Out of context, you’ve made Ron Paul look the way you wanted him to. If you are all speaking to your own gay, left choir, as it appears, why not worry more about how to get Obama reelected then why Ron Paul should not win the Republican nomination. A man’s words should be judged by his voting record if he’s in politics. Ron Paul votes consistently for your rights, in particular, your right to say stupid bigoted things. Check to see who voted against the patriot act, who introduced new bills to make the sale of commercial hemp legal, to protect our state rights to raw dairy and marijuana.

    Looks like you are all the ones obsessed with gay things.

    Soluna: “Where the hell did this quote come from?”

    It’s from an article that was published in The New Republic during 2008. Unless you subscribe to The New Republic, you wont’ have full access to their archives. The quote supposedly came from a Ron Paul Newsletter (these newsletters, under various names, have been published since the 1980s).

    Soluna: “A man’s words should be judged by his voting record if he’s in politics. Ron Paul votes consistently for your rights, in particular, your right to say stupid bigoted things.”

    Ron Paul has been inconsistent in his support for gay rights. In addition to making homophobic comments in his newsletters (according to the The New Republic), he has publicly supported the Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as a relation between one man and one woman. On the other hand, he has stated that the Federal government should get out of the marriage business altogether and leave it to the states to determine what is, or is not, a legal marriage. This seems to imply that, if a state decides that gay marriage is not legal, then this is apparently okay with him. Ron Paul also appears to support the presence of gays in the military, but he has also stated that he had no problems with the “Don’t Ask, don’t tell” policy that was implemented under President Clinton. If you review his entire record and public statements carefully, he appears to be okay with letting homosexuals do their “own thing” in public, and yet he doesn’t appear to support the passage of any laws that would guarantee homosexuals access to marriage and other legal rights. And so Ron Paul has been anything but consistent on these issues.

    As for the title of this piece, “Ron Paul is One Crazy Motherfucker,” this seems like a reasonable assertion to me. Ron Paul believes that people should have no legal right to have access to health care, unless they can afford to pay for it themselves or find a charity that will pay for it. Similarly, Ron Paul believes that people should have no legal right to have access to education, unless they can afford to pay for it themselves or find a charity that will pay for it. Ron Paul is also against the Federal income tax, and he thinks that the best income tax rate is 0%. Similarly, I strongly suspect that he is against the existence of such government agencies as the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and FDA (Food & Drug Administration) — government agencies that help to protect the environment and the safety of the food that we eat. Because of these and similar opinions, I think it is safe to say that Ron Paul is a crackpot nutcase.

    Ron Paul never published those, there was an independent, paid editor working with volunteers. Ron Paul was practicing medicine full time and only wrote a piece here or there to add into it. There are a handful of objectionable newsletters over the decades they went out and Ron Paul knew nothing about them until he was running to go back to Congress in the 1990s and his opponent dug them up. At the time Linder, the NAACP chief for Ron Paul’s district went on the radio and said Ron was in no way racist. It is on youtube. I looked into these before becoming a Ron Paul supporter and the issue pops like a soap bubble.

    Look into it yourself, you owe it to yourself. The man is inspiring.

  17. CannedJeffi says:

    Hey! Ron Paul is completely pro gay marriage. he was saying this because other people in his party have fucked over equal rights (including gay marriage) and he is just pointing that out. this is taken completely out of context!

  18. CannedJeffi says:

    He is the farthest thing from right wing nut job and the libertarian tea party likes him (which is much different than the fucktard neoconservative tea party) but he is overall a good candidate who is pro gay marriage and pro constitution and is definitely getting my vote next election.

  19. wordsofglass says:

    Interesting post. I’ve searched hard for hard evidence that Ron Paul is seriously crazy. Perhaps the craziest thing about him (as a politician with any interest of being elected) is how anti-corporate he claims to be. He seems pretty standard libertarian and extremely reasonable compared to any other conservative when it comes to gay rights:
    “I have received several calls and visits from constituents who, in spite of the heavy investment in their training, have been forced out of the military simply because they were discovered to be homosexual,” Paul said Friday. “To me, this seems like an awful waste. Personal behavior that is disruptive should be subject to military discipline regardless of whether the individual is heterosexual or homosexual. But to discharge an otherwise well-trained, professional, and highly skilled member of the military for these reasons is unfortunate and makes no financial sense.”

    My biggest problem with Ron Paul is that he’s kind of a radical. That says a lot seeing as I’m an anarchist. In reality, while I’d love to see the whole system collapse on a relatively quick timeline, an overnight collapse or discontinuation of major social services would be a disaster for many people. Ron Paul seems willing to discontinue many services essentially overnight. With a Democratic Congress, however, this might not be such a huge risk. Ron Paul with a Republican Congress…that would be kinda scary. Not just for GLBTQ Americans, but most of the 99%.

    It’s like making excuses for Jeffrey Dahmer. Simply listen to him on the dozens of interviews on youtube. He is crazy by any reasonable definition. Example- he openly says any American in any disaster- flood, earthquake, hurricane, wildfire, is on their own. No federal assistance should be rendered of ay kind. I am a hard nosed guy but even I have to say whoa, Ron is dangerous to this nation. The most dangerous enemy of America is not some foreign terrorist planning to harm us, it’s one of our own citizens trying to convince us that it’s our fault they want to harm us.
