No one's trolling here chief. It's just hilarious to me. As if Ron Paul has some kind of oracle like ability to know what's right and wrong. Man or woman, they are both morons to me, and as far as I know, my comments carry as much weight here on ATS as yours, so blow.

The Republican Party has been trying to capitalize politically off of widespread frustration bred by the economic crisis, and direct it to their own ends. They've done it with the town hall things and with the tea party groups - they see it as a way to recruit frustrated independents or at least use them as "useful idiots" (a term I just discovered is not actually attributable to Lenin but might as well be.)

Hence they've been trying to align themselves that seems like grassroots activism and energy and co-opt it, and channel the anger squarely at Barack Obama and away from themselves.

A typical political strategy, embraced across a wide range of political parties historically. It shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone.

Really well I will kindly create another thread to debate his ideals with you when I have the time and we will see just how far you get on thinking he is a moron. Do you accept the challenge?

Post away chief.l It's oddly amusing how so many Conservatives view Obama as some kind of an Anti-Christ (I'm not making this up.......) but yet so few if any Ron Paul "supporters" blindly follow his lead and never truly wonder if maybe they've hitched their wagon to the....ummmm..... Dark Horse. In a way, I wish Clinton had ultimately won so you people would have been faced with woman's right's (Pretty standard fare for the modern world.....) as opposed to racial rights, which I think I'm safe in saying are nowhere nearly as advanced, OMG! Yes! I played the race card! Only because Conservatives keep playing it without having the balls to call it what it is. Next?

This thread isn't for that debate, I said I would create another one in the bully pull-pit when I have the time, I have you bookmarked so I will U2U when that time comes. I find it funny that you are even talking about Obama being the Anti-christ on ATS when the majority here aren't even christians. And I personally along with many Ron Paul supporters don't blindly support him, we look at his record, he is a strict constituionalist, and he has won every debate hands down, no one and I repeat no one has ever challenged any of his ideals and won, (and if so kindly point me in the direction where his stance has been debunked). So you are taking on alot here.

Good, when we debate you can use Clintons ideals against Ron Pauls, you are making this way to easy for me.

And lumping all conservatives together in one group is really just ignorant and speaks volumes about your logic when you can't tell the difference between an individual and a group.

And I would have voted for Obama (look below). So this has nothing to do with right vs. left, race, or gender as you want to make it out to be. The later two.

I'm already out after I saw the July 4th faggotry. This whole teaparty idea has been hijacked by conservatives, and thats a shame.

You people are wrong.

Sarah Palin is no friend of the Republican party.

And that's a good thing. After the way they set her up in 2008, they'd better be running scared from her.

She is, however, a friend of the American people.

She is out there to expose Obama for the socialist that he is.

She is also out there to expose the Republicans, starting with John McCain, for what they are - closet liberals, gutless RINOs.

She scares all liberals and the so-called 'conservatives' here.

I haven't seen such panic over one little lady on this board yet!

Her monetary policy won't get us anywhere except to the stoneage.

And her religous views are on the extreme side.

That's about the only thing I don't like about her, her social values, and her monetary policy, and the fact that she can't handle an interview and the most basic of questions.

And her inexperience and she's a quiter.

Now that I think about it, I could go on and on. But i'll leave it at that.

And if Sara Palin were a true conservative she would have opted out of being Vice Presidential nominee for McCain.

I think ex. Gov. Palin would be a great asset to the Tea Party folks.

She has name recognition, a huge cadre of devotees and most importantly she has God on her side.
How can that be a bad thing? Hotline to God, protection against spells,
Sounds pretty good to me. You would think the Tea Parties could use some of that action.

Since you only made a statement of opinion without anything to back it up, I can't comment on that.

Except to say that if you're waiting to be thrust back into the Stone Age, Obama is your man.


And her religous views are on the extreme side.


You object to her religious views as 'extreme'?

Then you can certainly understand how others might object to other religions, such as Islam.


That's about the only thing I don't like about her, her social values, and her monetary policy, and the fact that she can't handle an interview and the most basic of questions.


Blame her handlers for setting her up with interviews with Charlie Gibson and Katie Couric. They set her up to fail because they knew the election was lost and they needed a scapegoat.

Her only fault was that she was too open and trusting.


And her inexperience and she's a quiter.


You mean like Barack Hussein Obama?

It's common knowledge on ATS that the Dollar is doomed, and she has done nothing to address that, which is probably the most important issue in the country.

Well judging by the way some islamic governments handles things then I would say yes. But I wouldn't generalize the whole religion as extremeist.

Palin was the only person in those interviews and failed to answer the most basic of questions, did you see her stumble over what her favorite magazine was? I didn't think it was such a hard question, she can't blame anyone but herself.



You mean like Barack Hussein Obama?


Yes and Sarah Louise Palin, nice deflection technique there. But I don't like Obama. So I don't see why you had to bring him into this? And when did Obama quit anything since you brought it up?

And if sarah becomes president is she going to quit when she becomes a lame duck president and when the media is picking on her?

The only thing Sarah unites is republicans, she scares the independants away, the key to winning an election. If she can't bring over independants or dems then there is no hope for a general election. So if she wins the nomination look forward to another Obama presidency.

Since when were the tea parties a Ron Paul movement? That is the first I've heard of that, and I've been to the biggest TP here in Ohio.

The tea parties are just right wing protests from what I can see. They started after obama was elected. If it wasn't partisan, why weren't they held before the election?

All I saw and heard was right wing rhetoric bashing Obama and the liberals and BTW one sign praising Palin. I heard nothing about Ron Paul, but I'm sure they would love to hear from Palin.

How should she have addressed it?

She isn't the Treasury Secretary - Tim Geithner is.

She hasn't talked about it because she hasn't started her speaking circuit yet. Give her time.

Btw, one of her first speeches is scheduled for China.

And naming a favorite magazine is a measure of....what, exactly? Maybe she doesn't have a favorite magazine. *I* don't have a favorite magazine.

That's the kind of question/answer that interests the shallow TV-watching, Oprah crowd.


And when did Obama quit anything since you brought it up?


He quit the US Senate to run for president.

Exactly.

Doesn't the fact that the mainstream tea partiers want Sarah Palin tell you guys something? Think about that. Do you really want to be involved in a "movement" whose members would choose Sarah "can't cook, can't shoot Palin as their "leader"?

Stick with Ron Paul's rEVOLution. Don't let it be sullied by the teabags.

It makes me laugh when the Libs go crazy over Sarah Palin.

She is kind of busy going through 1,070 invitations.
I think she needs to concentrate her time on the invites that will get Republicans back in control of the House of Representatives.
It will be a great day in America when Pelosi hands over control
to a great Republican.
Pelosi can take the Amtrak back to California.

First off, the protestors were not all right-wingers. I remember seeing protestors being interviewed, and they consisted of all political segments, Republican, Democrat, and Independents.

Next,, why weren't they held before the election? Simple. Because of the policies and decisions made after the election. Obama hasn't done one thing right yet. That fact, compounded by his lies and broken pledges, are the reasons his poll numbers are plummeting and the people are angry. They don't want increased gov't. They may admit that health care needs to be reformed, but they don't think that adding a huge bloated federal bureaucracy is the way to reform it.

The Tea Party movement is open to anyone. Democrats, republicans, independants, libertarians, why should we exclude someone from the movement?

If that person agrees with the fundamental issues of the Tea Party movement then they/she/he should be welcomed with opened arms.

Kinda hypocritical if we start acting like the two parties, "You can't join. You don't look/think/act like us."

Kind of "partisan" if you ask me.

Palin doesn't agree with the fundamentals of the original tea party movement. This movement was mainly started for monetary policy and personal liberties and being against the wars in the middle east, the first Palin knows nothing about, the later Palin would go along with and start more wars with the same currency that is based on nothing.

All palin is going to do is bring Republicans to these, and i'm talking about the Republicans who think like her, more wars, same monetary policy, ect, she's going to scare away all of the independants and dems and even a few repubs, the people who made this movement in the first place on completely different ideals than hers or what the tea party stands for today, and I believe the original was made a year before Obama got elected.

Where has everyone been?
