Additionally, the bill eliminates provisions regarding the use of federal examiners to examine applicants concerning their qualifications for voting and revises those regarding the use of federal observers to investigate and report on elections. (Sec. 5, 7, 8)

Isn't it strange that the Ron Paul supporters are now avoiding this thread like the plague. Yet they continue to post advertisements supporting Paul elsewhere.

This vote against the Voting Rights Act perfectly illustrates Ron Paul's intention to eliminate all Civil Rights Laws in the US according to the Libertarian Party Platform.

Libertarian Party Platform wrote:
Consequently, we
oppose any government attempts to regulate private discrimination,
including discrimination in employment, housing, and privately owned
so-called public accommodations. The right to trade includes the
right not to trade -- for any reasons whatsoever.

It's time for the Paulbearers to answer some tough questions.

Avoiding this thread like the plague?

This thread shows the mind boggling hypocrisy of some members. They grumble endlessly about the war...and grumble endlessly about the only major candidate who promises to do something measurable about it. They grumble endlessly about loss of freedom...and grumble endlessly about the only major candidate who promises to do something measurable about it.

I wonder....are they sponsored by fabian socialist "think tanks" AKA...Rockefeller/central banking?


Let us hear who they support. And why.

The board deletes its most vocal Ron Paul supporters. Thats the simple truth. Even right wing boards show more tolerance. And thats pretty scary.

So when you cannot defend the indefensible, you use the old chess gambit of going on the offensive and hoping your lack of a defense can be overlooked. Nice try but forget it.

1. Ron Paul is NOT a major candidate—one must finish in the top 3 to be considered such.

2. Ron Paul talks about freedom and then continues with his racist bigoted ways. The actions do not match the rhetoric.

3. There is no hypocrisy in attacking Ron Paul the libertarian racist bigot. Hypocrisy is in ignoring his record.

4. This board does not 'delete' Ron Paul supporters. It does however ask them to explain how they can support such an obvious regressive. Stop with the fucking red baiting already.

5. This thread is about Ron Paul. If you want alternatives start a new thread don't hijack this one to avoid defending the indefensible.

The board's governing body simply enforces the posting guidelines. Most of the time, those who support Ron Paul who come here don't like to obey our rules. A bit like their little so-called "major" candidate of choice...they'd like to change things to conform to their way of thinking...and that's not going to happen.

This one thread alone is made up of five pages of Ron Paul discussion....and counting. I'd hardly call that "intolerant."

Feel free to complain about the way the board is governed in a private message to any of the mods or to me.

When Liberrtarians promise freedom, it is code for the freedom to discriminate based on race and return to Jim Crow. It is code for the freedom of corporations to eliminate all labor unions, freedom from anit-turst laws, and return to the Robber Baron era. It is code for freedom of the uber-wealthy to purchase all public land and waterways for unchecked exploitation of natural resources. It is code for freedom from nearly all government services, and privatization of those services for only those who can afford them.

Yeah, give Libertarians a chance to do something about their vision of "freedom" and they will indeed "do something measurable about it".

The recent spat of Ron Paul adverts has crystallized a nagging thought I have had about the whole Ron Paul phenomenon. Eighty percent of the Ron Paul signs I have seen locally were home made. Nothing wrong with that except the materials used were not purchased. They have taken commercial banners (Lowes and Home Depot dominate) and painted their message on the back side and then hung them on public display. No attempt to disguise their hijacking of private property for their political purposes. The recent postings on this board amount to the same thing—stolen advertising space. Well the ethics of those involved would seem to be lacking just as their beloved leader's.

While I found the whole article troubling and a full confirmation of just what a wack job this guy is, the following two sections crystallize the indefensible.

Quote:
Civil Rights: Paul doesn't much care for ensuring your right to vote. Like when he voted with just 32 other members of Congress against reauthorizing the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Or when he voted for the bogus "Federal Election Integrity Act" voter suppression bill.

But at least Ron Paul knows who's responsible for racism in America: you are. "By encouraging Americans to adopt a group mentality," he writes, "the advocates of so-called 'diversity' actually perpetuate racism. Their intense focus on race is inherently racist, because it views individuals only as members of racial groups." So now you know. (Apparently, saying that "(i)f you have ever been robbed by a black teen-aged male, you know how unbelievably fleet-footed they can be" is not racist, as long as it's said with a proper appreciation for free-market economics.)

Church-State Separation: From keeping "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance to co-sponsoring the school prayer amendment to keeping the Ten Commandments on a courthouse lawn, this "strict constitutionalist" isn't a big fan of the Constitutionally-mandated separation of church and state. "Religious morality will always inform the voting choices of Americans of all faiths," he writes. "...The collectivist left" --that's you!-- "is threatened by strong religious institutions, because it wants an ever-growing federal government to serve as the unchallenged authority in our society.... So the real motivation behind the insistence on a separation of church and state is not based on respect for the First amendment, but rather on a desire to diminish the influence of religious conservatives at the ballot box."

And just in case the dirty liberals in the federal court system might take it into their heads to enforce the Establishment Clause, Mr. Strict Constitutionalist introduced a bill to bar the federal courts from hearing any such cases. No wonder James Dobson's Family Research Council gave Paul a 75 percent rating on their 2005 scorecard.

This is the first segment of 'THE RON PAUL EXPERIENCE - A Diary Series' situated in the early part of the dailykos blog. It is as chilling as the one above, which is the fourth in that series.

Ron Paul--really really bad news!

This isn't about Ron Paul himself but is instead a rather funny report about a Ron Paul supporter:

[url=http://wcco.com/local/ron.paul.decal.2.649555.html]Ron Paul Supporter Cited 4 Times For Window Decal
[/url]

OWATONNA, Minn. (AP) ― Cody Hauer is an enthusiastic Ron Paul supporter, but it could cost him more than $550 after receiving four citations in one week for having a large decal on his rear window.

Hauer, 18, decided to support the Republican presidential hopeful by displaying a 13-inch-by-40-inch "Ron Paul Revolution" decal on his Buick Park Avenue. The problem is, such decals are illegal if they obstruct the driver's view.

Still, Hauer questions whether he was targeted and says he plans to contest each citation in court next month.

"I support Ron Paul, the city Police Department doesn't," he said. "They gave me a DWR -- driving while Republican."


:lol:

DWR in this case is more like Driving While Retarded.

Especially after the first citation. Insanity is doing the same thing but expecting different results.

As a libertarian Ron Paulbearer, I suppose Cody Hauer will now call for the Police Department to be disbanded.
