Wake Up! Ron "Let 'em Die" Paul is no Messiah.

Or, rather, Ron 'let him die, unless a church or someone wants to help out' Paul -- in other words, it seems Paul wants to devise a metric that would measure a citizen's worth to society before pulling the plug. Despite this, Ron Paul supporters, abound.  Not only that, these supporters make him out to be a messiah.


Haven't we learned from former President Ronald "transfer the wealth"  Reagan (false messiah #1)?  Not to mention - most recently - President "extend the Bush programs" Obama (false messiah #2)?

Obviously not, because fast forward to 2011 and the promise-to-pay-hero-worshiping public is creating false messiah #3: Ron "let 'em die" Paul.  Hello? Didn't we just go down this path with false messiah #2, less than three years ago?

What is it about pro austerity for the masses,  #3 - who, not only believes poor sick people should die, but flashes freemasonic hand signs, as he makes racist and homophobic remarks that he later denies authorship (keep in mind, Ron Paul wants us to believe that these "Ron Paul" newsletters went out to hundreds of thousands of people for at least seventeen years without his notice), and associates himself with white supremacists - that makes people believe this man has any interest in saving anyone but his kind, wealthy white people? 

This racism issue has followed Ron Paul from the beginning.  While "where there's smoke, there's fire" doesn't always ring true, in the age of the Internet, it's very simple to find out for yourself whether that idiom applies, and in Ron Paul's case, it very well might.

The Commander of the American National Socialist Workers Party, Bill White, while, certainly not  a pillar of virtue himself, he does give a little credence to this claim, especially when there are records to back it up. (record of disbursements for Tara Thai restaurant), and he has the habit of associating with extremist groups).

Comrades:

I have kept quiet about the Ron Paul campaign for a while, because I didn’t see any need to say anything that would cause any trouble. However, reading the latest release from his campaign spokesman, I am compelled to tell the truth about Ron Paul’s extensive involvement in white nationalism.

Both Congressman Paul and his aides regularly meet with members of the Stormfront set, American Renaissance, the Institute for Historic Review, and others at the Tara Thai restaurant in Arlington, Virginia, usually on Wednesdays. This is part of a dinner that was originally organized by Pat Buchanan, Sam Francis and Joe Sobran, and has since been mostly taken over by the Council of Conservative Citizens.

I have attended these dinners, seen Paul and his aides there, and been invited to his offices in Washington to discuss policy.

For his spokesman to call white racialism a “small ideology” and claim white activists are “wasting their money” trying to influence Paul is ridiculous. Paul is a white nationalist of the Stormfront type who has always kept his racial views and his views about world Judaism quiet because of his political position.

I don’t know that it is necessarily good for Paul to “expose” this. However, he really is someone with extensive ties to white nationalism and for him to deny that in the belief he will be more respectable by denying it is outrageous — and I hate seeing people in the press who denounce racialism merely because they think it is not fashionable.

Then there his association with Ronald "transfer the wealth"  Reagan.  At one time, he was  a big-time supporter, not to mention his long time association with the John Birch Society, which is essentially, the precursor of Council for National Policy (CNP), a very secret conservative organization with a hell of a lot of power.

Granted, Paul supposedly changed his view on Reagan, calling his budget,"a failure"; however, he had no problem embracing the Reagan legacy and releasing an ad comparing himself to Reagan, in 2007, and using a 40 year old endorsement from Reagan.

Furthermore, Ron "I miss the closet" Paul hasn't/doesn't (Title V, Section V: “Prohibits the expenditure of Federal funds to any organization which presents male or female homosexuality as an acceptable alternative life style or which suggest that it can be an acceptable life style”) exactly support gay rights.
This is an issue that Paul sort of dances around. He has been praised for stating that the federal government should not regulate who a person marries. This has been construed by some to mean that he is somewhat open to the idea of same sex marriage, he is not. Paul was an original co sponsor of the Marriage Protection Act in the House in 2004. Among other things this discriminatory piece of legislation placed a prohibition on the recognition of a same sex marriage across state borders. He said in 2004 that if he was in the Texas legislature he would not allow judges to come up with “new definitions” of marriage. Paul is a very religious conservative and though he is careful with his words his record shows that he is not a supporter of same sex marriage. In 1980 he introduced a particularly bigoted bill entitled “A bill to strengthen the American family and promote the virtues of family life.” or H.R.7955 A direct quote from the legislation “Prohibits the expenditure of Federal funds to any organization which presents male or female homosexuality as an acceptable alternative life style or which suggest that it can be an acceptable life style.” shows that he is unequivocally opposed to lifestyles other than heterosexual.
He was also a co-sponsor of  the Marriage Protection Act which ensures DOMA can't be challenged in federal court...basically a covert way to convey his support for DOMA, even when he publicly states that he's against it. He wants to give one state the right to supersede another state's final authority on a matter that was never carried out in the superseding State to begin with. In other words, he's done a lot to try to empower states to be able to infringe on gay rights.

In 1990, he was quoted as saying in one newsletter that mentioned a reporter from a gay magazine, “who certainly had an axe to grind, and that’s not easy with a limp wrist.”

From the Survival Report, January 1994
“...gays in San Francisco do not obey the dictates of good sense...These men don’t really see a reason to live past their fifties. They are not married, they have no children, and their lives are centered on new sexual partners...they enjoy the attention and pity that comes with being sick.” - Ron Paul




I agree with Ron Paul's "stand" on a few issues, and I'm sure that most Americans can say the same; but you see, that's what makes him so dangerous: his apparent bucking a system that's taking full advantage of the masses.

Unfortunately, the following quote from M. Scott Peck's book, People of the Lie applies to everyone from Rick "let 'em die" Perry to Ron "let 'em die" Paul, and everyone in between. Whether the innocent die as a result of our system of "justice", or lack of health insurance, what's important is that the innocent, die.
Theirs is a brand of narcissism so total that they seem to lack, in whole or in part, the capacity for empathy...Their narcissism makes the evil dangerous not only because it motivates them to scapegoat others but also because it deprives them of the restraint that results from empathy and respect for others.

In addition to the fact that the evil need victims to sacrifice to their narcissism, their narcissism permits them to ignore the humanity of their victims as well...The blindness of the narcissist to others can extend even beyond a lack of empathy; narcissists may not "see" others at all.

There are boundaries to the individual soul. And in our dealings with each other we generally respect these boundaries. It is characteristic of--and prerequisite for--mental health both that our own ego boundaries should be clear and that we should clearly recognize the boundaries of others. We must know where we end and others begin.

-M. Scott Peck, The People of the Lie, p. 136-137
