The Problem with Ron Paul

Posted by Troy on 20th December 2011 in Current Events, Political

I think the real problem with Ron Paul is that he does a bad job of defending his positions.  I think this is because he is trying to make clever quips like Newt does.  For instance:

“Why do we care if Iran gets a nuke?”

What he probably means to say is:

“Look, they are going to keep trying to get a nuke.  The only way to stop them, really, is to go to war and wipe them off the face of the Earth.  The cost of this war will probably be hundreds of billions of dollars (if not a trillion) and 20,000 dead troops.  We can do this, or we can tell them, “If you get a nuke and use it, we are going to use our own nukes against you and wipe you off the face of the Earth.  If you try to invade another country, we will be there to confront you as well.  As you can see, there is no real benefit for spending the money for the bomb because, if you use it, you’re dead.  Thank you.”

Few countries are as bat shit crazy as North Korea, and not even they used the bomb on their enemies because we will blow them off the map and they know it.

If Ron Paul would phrase his arguments this way, I think people would like him more.

    The republican establishment tells us to fear this poor little chihuahua that has a broke leg (IRAN). OMG, not IRAN. What if Iran builds a nuke, then they still lack the capability of delivering to a target.

    We are worried about IRAN getting 1 nuke, when there are thousands of nukes in the hands of Non friendly US regimes. Pakistan, China, Russia, India. And, they have missiles capable of delivering the nuclear bomb payload. Not like Iran’s poor scud missile.

    Furthermore, Iran’s youth longs for freedoms. The country itself has it’s own problems. The U.S. is a 4 ton Rhino, and we are worried about a limp chihuahua. Not to mention, Israel in this world is a mean ass pit pull, it is more than capable of handling a wounded chihuahua that is being cornered into a corner.

    Honestly, the biggest threat to America is our economy and debt.

    By Iran’s youth longs for freedoms. I mean, they hate their repressive government. I think in time, Iran will change politically, and they will no longer hate us. But, if we go bombing the shit out of them, chances are the next generations will hate us all the same.

    One last thing.

    The concern is that Iran is so dogmatic that they would actually USE a nuke to destroy Israel. I’m not entirely sold on that point. I don’t think they could hate Israel enough to ensure the destruction of their entire country.

    Wikipedia on Jimmy Kimmel: He is Roman Catholic and, as a child, served as an altar boy. Kimmel is of German and Irish decnest on his father’s side and Italian decnest on his mother’s side. and: Kimmel co-founded the annual LA Feast of San Gennaro, which celebrates Italian culture through entertainment, music and cuisine. The festival also honors outstanding members of the Los Angeles community and raises funds to aid needy children and families in the city. He hosted Los Angeles’ eighth annual feast of San Gennaro from September 28 to 30, 2009. Kimmel served as Master of Ceremonies for the National Italian American Foundation’s 34th Anniversary Gala in Washington, D.C., on October 24, 2009. Which brings to mind the fact that the level of ethnic nationalism among Italian Americans is rather less conspicuous and contentious overall than that among Jewish Americans. This should be a non-controversial statement, right? It is obviously true. There is no equivalent to Charles Krauthammer, Alan Dershowitz, William Kristol or Pamela Geller among Italian-American mainstream media pundits.The most urgent problem facing the Jewish community is to reduce the level of conflict over its ethnic nationalist issues and controversies in American and European politics.
