"We don’t have the First Amendment so we can talk about the weather. We have the First Amendment so we can say very controversial things. If you have the inconsistency, then you’re really not defending liberty."

Ron Paul (via coolidgeconservative)

He said this in response to a question about legalizing gay marriage, marijuana and prostitution.

Does Heritage now support gay marriage, marijuana and prostitution?

"It’s a form of welfare, having the taxpayers take care of somebody, and I’m an ordinary citizen. I should pay for my own protection."

Ron Paul • Speaking on Jay Leno about his lack of need for Secret Service protection. But the thing is, presidents and presidential candidates have been killed before on the campaign trail. This is not an unrealistic concern. Not sure if we agree with Paul on this one. (via shortformblog)

If elected president, I wonder if Paul would attempt to remove the Secret Service’s role as protector for sitting and former presidents and vice presidents, their families and visiting dignitaries.

"They tax too much. My goal is to get rid of the 16th Amendment."

— Constitutionalist Ron Paul wants to get rid of a part of the Constitution.

"Wouldn’t it be nice if people didn’t make accusations somewhere else that they weren’t willing to defend here?"

Mitt Romney on Newt Gingrich backpedaling on the negative tone of the debates, that Wolf Blitzer called him out on instigating, but only after Rick Santorum chastised both of them for their “petty personal attacks” and ignoring the issues.

Ron Paul agrees.

"“I voted for Obama in 2008 but we need a change. Dr Paul is consistent and honest, which is very hard to find. He is not just telling us what we have heard before,” - Samantha Dunn, a 28-year-old teacher in Iowa, to the Daily Telegraph."

Quote For The Day - The Dish | By Andrew Sullivan - The Daily Beast

Samantha Dunn is a public school teacher. Ron Paul hates you, Samantha. Just a FYI.

"Thanks to Ron Paul, libertarianism of a certain stripe may be more popular than ever, and its influence on the Tea Party and the broader conservative movement is not hard to see. All the same, this brand of libertarianism is never going to “cross the chasm,” as the marketing folks like to say. It’s destined to remain a minority creed, and that’s not because most Americans are stupid or immoral. It’s because libertarians have done a terrible job countering the widespread suspicion that theirs is a uselessly abstract ideology of privilege for socially obtuse adolescent white guys. Ron Paul sure isn’t helping."

Will Wilkinson, A Libertarian’s Lament: Why Ron Paul Is an Embarrassment to the Creed. If you read the whole thing and it’s especially quiet where you are, you’ll be able to hear Wilkinson’s heart breaking a little at the realization that Ron Paul is going to be the standard bearer for libertarianism. I’ll admit to sort of enjoying WW’s pain.

"I do not believe in the death penalty. 68% of the time they make mistakes — and it’s so racist too. More than half the people getting the death penalty are poor blacks. This is the one place, this is the one remnant of racism in our country: the court system, enforcing the drug laws, and enforcing the death penalty. I don’t even know, but I wonder how many people have been executed — over 200? — I wonder how many were minorities. If you’re rich, you usually do not get the death penalty. And the DNA evidence now has proven people innocent. I don’t think it’s a very good sign for civilization to still be invoking the death penalty."

Tumblr’s left-wing hacks won’t reblog this because it doesn’t fit the trite narrative of Ron-Paul-is-a-white-supremacist-lol. Also because they seem to not give a shit about anything that actually matters.

Left-winger reblogging.

Just because I believe Ron Paul is a crazy loon that espouses some radical beliefs without any actual merit behind them doesn’t mean that I think he’s always wrong.

We don’t live in an either/or world, as you seem to suggest. Though I’m glad you decided to frame your post into a trite narrative based around baseless stereotypes about the left.

Also, not once have I ever heard Ron Paul be described as a white supremacist.
