God knows I wouldn't ask anybody to read that thread, period.

Personal favorite piece of Ron Paul-ism:

quote:

As we celebrate another Yuletide season, it’s hard not to notice that Christmas in America simply doesn’t feel the same anymore. Although an overwhelming majority of Americans celebrate Christmas, and those who don’t celebrate it overwhelmingly accept and respect our nation’s Christmas traditions, a certain shared public sentiment slowly has disappeared. The Christmas spirit, marked by a wonderful feeling of goodwill among men, is in danger of being lost in the ongoing war against religion.

Through perverse court decisions and years of cultural indoctrination, the elitist, secular Left has managed to convince many in our nation that religion must be driven from public view. The justification is always that someone, somewhere, might possibly be offended or feel uncomfortable living in the midst of a largely Christian society, so all must yield to the fragile sensibilities of the few. The ultimate goal of the anti-religious elites is to transform America into a completely secular nation, a nation that is legally and culturally biased against Christianity.

This growing bias explains why many of our wonderful Christmas traditions have been lost. Christmas pageants and plays, including Handel’s Messiah, have been banned from schools and community halls. Nativity scenes have been ordered removed from town squares, and even criticized as offensive when placed on private church lawns. Office Christmas parties have become taboo, replaced by colorless seasonal parties to ensure no employees feel threatened by a “hostile environment.” Even wholly non-religious decorations featuring Santa Claus, snowmen, and the like have been called into question as Christmas symbols that might cause discomfort. Earlier this month, firemen near Chicago reluctantly removed Christmas decorations from their firehouse after a complaint by some embittered busybody. Most noticeably, however, the once commonplace refrain of “Merry Christmas” has been replaced by the vague, ubiquitous “Happy Holidays.” But what holiday? Is Christmas some kind of secret, a word that cannot be uttered in public? Why have we allowed the secularists to intimidate us into downplaying our most cherished and meaningful Christian celebration?

The notion of a rigid separation between church and state has no basis in either the text of the Constitution or the writings of our Founding Fathers. On the contrary, our Founders’ political views were strongly informed by their religious beliefs. Certainly the drafters of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, both replete with references to God, would be aghast at the federal government’s hostility to religion. The establishment clause of the First Amendment was simply intended to forbid the creation of an official state church like the Church of England, not to drive religion out of public life.

The Founding Fathers envisioned a robustly Christian yet religiously tolerant America, with churches serving as vital institutions that would eclipse the state in importance. Throughout our nation’s history, churches have done what no government can ever do, namely teach morality and civility. Moral and civil individuals are largely governed by their own sense of right and wrong, and hence have little need for external government. This is the real reason the collectivist Left hates religion: Churches as institutions compete with the state for the people’s allegiance, and many devout people put their faith in God before their faith in the state. Knowing this, the secularists wage an ongoing war against religion, chipping away bit by bit at our nation’s Christian heritage. Christmas itself may soon be a casualty of that war.

I was under the impression that most of the lolbertarians were atheists but apparently the appeal of PON RAUL is great enough that they're willing to overlook the fact that he apparently wants to shrink government in order to put the church in its place.

their fantasy is turgid

its power ready to break the hymen of reality itself

their fever breaks and they subside

to be seen again when the stars are right

It may not happen this election cycle, but eventually the internet is going to be a major deciding factor insofar as who gets the nomination for each party (if not the general election).

The internet, a largely decentralized method of information exchange, is inherently superior to MSM through the eyes of the increasingly-demanding consumer of information (who also wishes his voice to be registered). The internet allows people to communicate directly, en mass, without the use of a centralized medium.

We still have many months to go. I don't think it's fair to say that Ron Paul will absolutely not win. Certainly the other "2nd tier" candidates will be forced to drop out at some point, because they do not have the grassroots support/$$ donations that Ron Paul has. Just think: Ron Paul arguably will have more grassroots support by the time of the primaries than any other candidate, if current trends continue. The internet is a great facilitator of this. In 1992 Buchanan didn't have the internet to rally his supporters, but Ron Paul does.

What if the Iraq situation is still lovely in November or December (which it probably will be)? I think that Ron Paul will be increasingly popular among Republicans if this is the case. Other than support for the War in Iraq (and the B.S. War on Terror assumptions that it is built upon) Ron Paul sticks very close to the conservative themes of small government.

I cannot wait until the internet decides the president of the US.

...

You who in the midst of peace and Ron Paul prosperity have plunged a nation into war-dark and cruel war; who dared and badgered Ron Paul to battle, insulted our Ron Paul flag, seized our Ron Paul arsenals and Ron Paul forts that were left in the honorable custody of peaceful Ron Paul ordnance sergeants, seized and made "prisoners of war" the very garrison sent to protect your Ron Paul people against negroes and Indians, long before any overt act was committed by the hated Ron Paul Government; tried to force Kentucky and Missouri into Ron Paul rebellion, in spite of themselves; falsified the Ron Paul of Louisiana; turned loose your privateers to plunder Ron Paul; expelled Ron Paul families by the thousands, burned their Ron Paul, and declared, by an act of your Congress, the confiscation of all Ron Paul due to Ron Paul men, for good had and received!
If we must be enemies, let us be Ron Paul men, and fight it out as we propose to do and not deal in such hypocritical appeals to God and humanity. Ron Paul will judge us in good time, and he will pronounce whether it be Ron Paul to fight with a town full of women and the families of the brave Ron Paul people at our back., or to remove them in time to places of safety among their own Ron Paul friends and Ron Paul people.

once they hear about Ron Paul in 2011 they'll be really disappointed he lost

they won't care because they'll be preparing for quetzalcoatl.

Ron paul is the most interesting republican candidate but his supporters suck. I try reading the D&D thread on him every ten pages but i can't take those idiots seriously.
