What Ron Paul’s Detractors Reveal

It is no secret that I am a huge Ron Paul fan–and I have been for many years. Do I agree with him on every single issue? Of course not. And I don’t have to agree with him on every single issue to know Ron Paul is the only true constitutionalist in the Presidential field–from either major party. And when a President (or any other public office holder) takes his or her oath of office, they do not swear to be a good conservative, or to be a good Christian, or to support the state of Israel, or to “create jobs,” etc., etc. They swear to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States. That is their solemn oath before God and the American people. Nothing more. Nothing less. And for over two decades, Congressman Ron Paul has demonstrated his fidelity to that oath. And for that, I can and must support him.

In spite of Dr. Paul’s stellar congressional record, however, there are large numbers of Republicans and “conservatives” that are his fiercest critics. I’ve even heard some “conservatives” say that they would rather see Barack Obama reelected than for Ron Paul to become President. Such is the lunacy of many so-called “conservatives” today.

So, what is it about Ron Paul’s detractors that cause them to despise him so much? What is their beef? They would never say that they would rather Obama be reelected than to see Mitt Romney, or Newt Gingrich, or Rick Santorum elected President. In fact, most of them spout the antiquated mantra, “Anybody but the Democrat (whoever it happens to be at the time).” Or, “At least Romney, Gingrich, Santorum, etc., won’t take us over the cliff quite as fast as Obama.” But when discussing Ron Paul, many “conservatives” take the position, “Anybody but Ron Paul.” Why is this? What is it about this good man that so many good people can have such animosity toward him?

I am convinced that these “conservatives” who oppose Ron Paul reveal much more about themselves than they do about Dr. Paul. Let me proffer a few observations.

And now… the rest of the story. …..

    That is really a great article. The answer is really easy, Ron Paul has the courage to say what Obama has been trying to get to. would not surprise me if Obama, where free to do so, would appoint Ron Paul Secretary of State. Why are the candidates riding that Israel Horse, because so many especially Congress, have sold their soul for the support of AIPAC and the Lobby, given the money and power they managed to accumulate Israel is not one they want against them. Romney has his wealth in the crocked but capable hands of Goldman Sack, Newt, well the answer came from Las Vegas loud and clear. Santorium has always followed the Church command and share easily terrorized people about Islamic Religion, as does the Church.
    Ron Paul needs a speech writer, even the media now believes he is not seriously running for president but for a podium and he is doing well
    like many of us on the Internet we keep trying to wake up the people.
