Please read this remark by M. Dennis Paul, Ph.D., which remark I saw in the comments section of http://salem-news.com/articles/november292011/morris-ron-paul.php.
“I appreciate that people respond to the seemingly Anti-war sentiments expressed by Ron Paul. It shows that we are getting tired of war, police actions and/or whatever other name we can use to cover up the realities. However, Ron Paul is not now, nor has he ever truly been, anti war. Listen carefully to his words and you will hear that he is against undeclared war.. that is, war not fully okay-ed by the Congress. Further, what Ron Paul genuinely stands for is an economic policy that is based upon the writings of a clearly sociopathic individual who would see the collapse of the middle class as a sign of economic maturity and well being. It is this very policy, gradually promoted by the heads of national economics policy, that brought us to where we are today.. on the brink of total global economic collapse. Ron Paul’s response to this is to employ more of the same and in an increasingly sociopathic manner. That is not an answer to a problem.. it is an enhancement to exacerbation. In my opinion, Ron Paul has been playing on antiwar sentiments for a long time and fooling his followers into thinking he is the genuine article on this and other pressing issues. Ron Paul is a walking talking disaster in the making and the further away he is from the Presidency of the United States, the better off are we. If you are looking for someone who is genuinely antiwar and genuinely seeking responsible resolve for our economic woes, I would take a closer look at Dennis Kucinich. Far from simply talking “anti-war”, he has actually proposed measures to create “peace”. Far from pursuing the Ayn Rand wet dream of a “free” market that altruistically polices itself, he actually explores alternatives and discusses probabilities, possibilities and 7 generation sensibilities for a sustainable future. A good measure of the sincerity of Ron Paul is the degree to which he attempted gaining support and traction from OWS. It was significant. When it became evident to him that this was not going to happen, that on the whole the OWS youth could not trust him, he turned on them and started to denigrate them to the media. This reminded me of George McGovern. I warned the Party that he would spit on them when he lost.. he did lose, by a land slide.. and he did spit on everyone that worked for him. Ron Paul is definitely NOT the best man for the job.. for this ailing nation.”
