    In other, unrelated news, “racist wacko” Ron Paul urges supporters to gather behind a unified candicay of either McKinney, Nader or Baldwin. That, my friends, is putting principle above politics, and loving peace more than ideology, more than can be said of Obama. Video

    Aggie, Jaludtke, Kurt, I look forward to your pithy and surprised comments. Ted blogging about it wouldn’t be too bad either.

    Ron Paul is always good at closing the barn door after the horse has left. He’s a sly politician who rails against legislation only when it’s not in contention. Telling his people to vote for someone else is a way to tell them to vote against Obama without backing off his lack of support for McCain. If he felt that McCain were in trouble in this election, he wouldn’t do it.

  3. Incitatus Says:


    I congratulate you on your telepathic skills. Can we assume that you think “his” would lean towards voting for Obama, then? And sarcasm aside, what you say makes absolutely no sense: he disavows McCain because he wants to help him. Not even the best disinformation practioners at the KGB would be able to pull it off.

    On another note, can we also assume that you think McCain stands a chance to win (or, at least, that “closet” McCain cheerleader Paul thinks so)? If that’s the case, do you think that is McCain’s campaign merit, or Obama’s fault? Why?

    Incitatus, I think that Ron Paul, like any good ol’ southern white boy, believes that he’s in the majority. So for example, read Pat Buchanan’s stuff. These people believe fully that a black man can’t win the election, period. Southern white bigots believe they’re in the majority, because when they look around them in their insulated little worlds, they are.

    Yes, I think that Ron Paul believes that McCain will win. I don’t think he necessarily supports him, but he’d rather McCain win than Obama. Also, his supporters were largely the libertarian right who were also anti-war. They can’t go with the democrats on many grounds, but they hate that we get entangled in unnecessary wars.

    Ron Paul was born and bred in Pennsylvania. Try again. See that’s the problem I have with many leftists: their opponents – even “opponents” that agree with them on important issues like foreign policy and the national debt – are all thoroughly evil and Machiavellian people, who never mean what they say or say what they mean.

    I refuse to see the world in black and white like that, with no nuances, just like I refuse to believe that the political choice is a bipolar one, between “left” and “right”. And from what I’ve read in Paulist forums, that camp has a lot more diversity going on for it than, say, here.

    Hi Ted, my time machine is broken, but I’d love to meet you. Do you have any appearances lines up for the Boston/Providence area?
