Ron Paul: Election shows U.S. 'far gone'
The Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan

Original Article

Posted By:Envirodude, 11/9/2012 7:32:24 AM

Rep. Ron Paul, whose maverick presidential bids shook the GOP, said in the wake of this week's elections that the country has already veered over the fiscal cliff and he sees no chance of righting ship in a country where too many people are dependent on government. "We're so far gone. We're over the cliff," the Texas Republican told Bloomberg Television's "In the Loop" program. "We cannot get enough people in Congress in the next 5-10 years who will do wise things. (Snip) Mr. Paul, who is retiring after 12 terms in the House

I like Ron Paul, however, had he endorsed Gov Romney, as got his folks out to vote, the results could have been different.

Would he have said the same thing if Romney were elected? On election day I heard him say that there was no difference between the two candiates. No sane person can believe that.

Just what are all of the Ron Paul supporters going to do now? By failing to vote, they have helped destroy our country. They are no different than the Obamabots. Their loyalty to this idiot cost us the election.

The country is neither gone nor far gone. We survived the FDR years and we'll survive this. We are more resilient than we credit ourselves. A lot of the youngsters who voted in Obama have yet to feel his socialist lash. So take heart. Don't abandon hope.

I believe that there are Americans that want to see the country burn down. Romney would have stopped the bleeding but probably not reversed the decay. I personally think Romney would have become more conservative as President. But purists who stayed home want a full reset no matter what the human cost. I think we collapse at some point if congress can't prevent a full blown dictatorship.

Anyone who follows this website realizes that any article on a community that is not white has comments that paint broad brush assumptions about them as a group rather than individuals. For example, the Jewish Community is very intelligent and savvy and see right through the fawning "support" of Israel and Jews by the right wing of the Republican Party, most particularly Sean Hannity. There are 12 Jewish Members in the House of Representatives - 0 are Republican. There are 26 Jewish Members in the Senate - 1 (Eric Cantor) is Republican. And people wonder why the Jewish Community votes for the Democrat Party. Another example, there are lots of people of Indian and Chinese origin who are fiscally conservative. But the religious rhetoric of the R's scares them. It's time for the Republicans to face reality. Keep religion and abortion out of politics. They are personal matters. The US is a secular country not a Christian country... if it was the latter, the founding fathers would have said so in the Constitution.

Read some religious commentaries #10. Behaviourly, Jews have historically assisted in their own destruction. American liberal Jews for the most part could not care less about Israel. Supporting Israel has been the only thing between America and its own final punishment from God.

It is like Rush said, people in this country voted for Santa Claus, not for the opportunity to work hard for themselves. It is all about getting the freebies, no matter the consequences.

#10, cool story bro', and while we'd all love to hear more, submitting the exact same post to multiple articles (like your post #5 in the 'Mitt Romney Had Every Chance...' article) is called serial posting . . . spamming. We don't do that at Ldot.

#10, to use a Christian illustration, you strain at gnats and swallow camels in your own broad brushed assumptions. You are advising conservatives to keep religion and abortion out of politics, because those are "personal matters". Yet, you apparently have no problem with leftists introducing those same "personal matters" into politics on their terms, and their politics into religion through the use of political power to force religious organizations to go against their religious beliefs regarding contraception and abortion.

You tell white, social conservatives that non-white, fiscal conservatives fear them. Surely we are not to believe that the so-called christian liberation theology being implemented through policies of the leadership in the Democrat Party is less "scary" to them because Obama has enough pigmentation to darken his skin.

Conservatives aren't the threat to freedom and liberty.

#10 osting the exact same paragraph on many threads cheapens the dialog, shows contempt of others, and demonstrates a selfish need for attention.

A number of Calgarians are expressing their outrage over an ongoing radio promotion which has resulted in $5,000 in Canadian currency reduced to a pile of ash instead of being provided to a listener. AMP Radio’s ‘$15,000 Bank It or Burn It’ campaign is polling the listening audience to decide whether a predetermined amount of cash should be destroyed or provided to a listener as a prize. AMP is encouraging Calgarians to vote either Bank or Burn by text message, Twitter, Facebook or by posting to AMP’s Radio app. Voters who selected Bank were asked to indicate their plans for the

   

 



 
Family Says They Did Tip
Gay Server, Didn´t Leave Note

After a gay server at a New Jersey restaurant said a customer denied her a tip and wrote her a hateful note on the receipt, a local family contacted NBC 4 New York and said their receipt shows they paid a tip and didn´t write any such note. Dayna Morales, a former Marine and a server at Gallop Asian Bistro in Bridgewater, posted a photo on Facebook earlier this month, showing the bill with a line through the space for a tip. The photo of the receipt showed someone had written, "I'm sorry but I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle."

Monks claim final victory

A five-year legal battle waged by a group of Benedictine monks against the Louisiana funeral industry was laid to rest Tuesday by the U.S. Supreme Court, which let stand an appellate ruling striking down a state law giving funeral directors a monopoly on the sale of caskets to the public. “It’s a great day for us, and we’re very thankful that this five-year battle is over,” said Abbot Justin Brown, who leads St. Joseph Abbey, a community of 34 monks whose primary work is educating future priests at St. Joseph Seminary near Covington and running a retreat center.

It seems like another life. At the height of his corporate career, Tom Palome was pulling in a salary in the low six-figures and flying first class on business trips to Europe. Today, the 77-year-old former vice president of marketing for Oral-B juggles two part-time jobs: one as a $10-an-hour food demonstrator at Sam´s Club, the other flipping burgers and serving drinks at a golf club grill for slightly more than minimum wage. While Palome worked hard his entire career, paid off his mortgage and put his kids through college, like most Americans he didn´t save enough for retirement. Even many affluent

Senatobia, MS - A jogger says three men attacked him in retaliation for the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial. The attack happened on Highway 51 in Senatobia, Miss., Sunday night. The victim told News Channel 3 and investigators the men drove up to him, asked if he knew who Trayvon Martin was, then forced him into a car. At some point, the man says the men told him, “This is for Trayvon.” The man was badly beaten, then dropped off on Cut Off Road between Senatobia and Coldwater, Miss. The man, who is white, told police the men who attacked him are black,

OXFORD — Investigators say they haven´t found any ricin in the house of a Mississippi man accused of mailing poisoned letters to President Barack Obama, a U.S. senator and a local judge. FBI Agent Brandon Grant, testifying in federal court Monday, said a Friday search of Paul Kevin Curtis´ house in Corinth, Miss., did not turn up ricin or ingredients for the poison. A search of Curtis´ computers has found no evidence so far that he researched making ricin. Federal investigators believe the letters were mailed by Curtis, an Elvis impersonator who family members say suffers from bipolar disorder.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
