Did you see this?
In case this idiot — meaning Paul — is ignorant of the fact, or he simply ignored it because the fact doesn’t suit his narrative, this former sniper was trying to help a fellow vet with PTSD. That’s hardly “living by the sword,” that’s extending a helping hand to a fellow human being. But Paul doesn’t care. His agenda is pacifism — even to the point that he would surrender this nation to avoid a fight. His supporters will be angry about that, but I read his book on Liberty and I never saw more than a Progressive-like wave of his rhetorical hand in the direction of defending this nation. He never once states clearly that he would do so, or under what conditions — ever. Instead, he pays the notion just enough lip service to hide the fact that he would disarm this nation the same way Obama is doing.
But even if we disagree on policy, to attack a person who served this nation in this way is to attack the people who defend this nation. This former SEAL didn’t send himself to war, RON PAUL DID! And so did every one of us who allow our government to implement the policies it is implementing in the Middle East. What’s more, how can Paul claim to support the Constitution if he is going to attack the people who are sent in harms way by what’s left of our Constitutional process. This entire story makes me want to jack-slap this old fool. But then, none of this matters to his supporters. They believe anything the man says, which is how they come to agree that Paul voting for pork in his district is actually fighting pork. I think the Paulbots must have a touch of the same insanity as the Progressives.
This is why I reject Ron Paul and his notion of the way this country should be: because our founders were not the pacifists that Paul would have us believe them to be. If Paul had been around during the Revolution, he would have been a Tory! The truth is, this former SEAL was just doing what he was told to do. The blame for his death — if there is any other than with the man who shot him — doesn’t lie with him, but with the nation that sent him to war. Paul should look in the mirror rather than make comments directed at this American hero. He was in Congress. He had more to do with this man going to war than the SEAL did, therefore, Paul is more to blame for his death than the SEAL.
This is why I cannot and will never support Ron Paul or those who stand with him. Saying something like this is does not advance the cause of liberty. In fact, it’s little different than what the code pink people do. Which means, in the end, all Paul really stands for is anarchy — not liberty. And anarchy has an awful lot in common with the Marxist Left, or haven’t you noticed that they tend to side with each other? (OWS, anyone?) Do you know what the common thread is? They both want to tell you what to do and how to live.
