Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

No, I don't think so.

If Iran were to say to Israel, for example, "You can't have any nukes, and if we detect the evidence of any in your territory, we will bomb you," you'd probably agree that...

Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

It's consistent. Imagine you're in high school and most of the gang kids have guns and are affiliated with either the Cripps or Bloods. You go to the Cripps head gangster and say, "I need a gun to be...

Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

Why should "we" do this? "We" are not in charge of the world. There is no sane reason for anyone to possess nuclear weapons.

The only way out of the nuclear dilemma is universal disarmament.

Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

Why is Iran any more dangerous with regard to loose nukes than Pakistan or North Korea? I'm against all nuclear proliferation, but I see no reason to single out Iran and to issue belligerent...

Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

You are speculating just as much as I am, except your speculation leads you to resign yourself to embrace the military industrial complex status quo. I am more hopeful that a bipartisan peace...

Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

I'm in a huury now so cannot answer fully, but I'll just say that people who develop strong pro-peace convictions early in their political lives are likely to sustain them till the day they die...

Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

Disagree. Here's why: The antiwar movement inspires people and they understand it. Monetary policy is arcane and boring for most people (including members of Congress).

Paul has already had a...

Good post. I'm glad you fleshed out your position. I understand where you're coming from better now.

Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

Crackpot, wing nut, Paultard, racist, homphobe. I love when American politics degenerates to a junior high food fight level.

Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

Really? I'm surprised you think he'd have a chance. Paul gets a lot of support from Evangelicals because he has a "perfect" anti-abortion record in Congress. Johnson is pro-choice and AFAIK only...

Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

Fair point. However, Obama could lose my vote on foreign policy grounds if he does anything that I think is actually WORSE than what the generic Republican would do. So it's not really "no matter...

Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

I am quite happy to also support Gary Johnson on foreign affairs and agree that he apparently doesn't have any of the negative baggage that Paul does.

I was even happier to support Dennis...

Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

That's exactly why I don't want the USA to have nukes. Not only are we just as crazy, but we have a track record as the only country on Earth to have used nukes against a civilian population.

Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

Thanks.



Fair point. The other side of the argument though is that the two mainstream parties run candidates who are virtually fungible, which is also a problem for democracy.

Also, our...

Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

My bad. Sorry about the confusion. I didn't mean to get you all to go off on tangents about Ron Paul's immigration views. I'll explain below.

But first, let me clarify for the umpteenth time, I...

Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

That's a possibility. Third party candidacies are often debated in terms of who benefits most. Some people argue that Nader was a wash, although many are convinced that Gore would have won without...

Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

You're.

You, Graz, have been -- by far -- the worst of all the "liberal" critics of my views on Paul. To Twin Swords' credit, he is well-informed, well-intentioned and capable of putting together...

Mickey's criterion for selecting a president

Which candidate is more likely (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/40593?in=86:42&out=86:49) to fuck over poor Mexican families.

Don't worry, Real Americans. Mickey has your back, ensuring that...
