Oh, wow. See, this is what we're up against people. We need to counter these Establishment talking points EVERYWHERE we encounter them...
This is what Dr. Paul meant with the above statement, he was referring to the fact that black males are treated unfairly in the criminal justice
Repeal most federal drug laws; blacks are treated unfairly
Q: If you are elected president in 2008, what positive and significant legacy, if any, will you leave for Black Americans?
A: I would like to believe that if we had a freer society, it would take care of Blacks and whites and everybody equally because we’re all
individuals. To me, that is so important. But if we had equal justice under the law, I think it would be a big improvement. If we had probably a
repeal of most of the federal laws on drugs and the unfairness on how Blacks are treated with these drugs laws, it would be a tremendous
improvement. And also, I think that if you’re going to have prosperity, it serves everybody. And if this is done by emphasizing property rights
and freedom of the individuals, making sure that the powerful special interests don’t control Washington, that the military industrial complex
doesn’t suck away all the wealth of the country, and then we would have prosperity.
2 "Opinion polls consistently show that only about 5 percent of blacks have sensible political opinions, i.e. support the free market, individual
liberty and the end of welfare and affirmative action. — Printed In Ron Paul’s Newsletter (but not written by him)"
Probably referring to the fact that welfare for those not disabled is unfair, and affirmative action is racist. Read above again..."I would like to
believe that if we had a freer society, it would take care of Blacks and whites and everybody equally because we’re all individuals."
TR: “Under President Paul, if Iran invades Israel, what do we do?”
RP: (amused) “They're not going to: That's like saying 'Iran's about to invade Mars'”.
I forgot, Iran likes Israel. Its not like they have spoke hundreds of times about wiping them off the planet. (oh wait they have) This isnt fantasy
Israel is MORE than capable of defending themselves. They don't need us, but of course they would probably rather we spend OUR money and risk the
lives of OUR troops to do what they can easily do themselves. He supports Israel's right to take out Iran's nuke program if they truly feel
threatened. And unlike EVERY other candidate, his record shows that to be true...
Paul was in Congress when Israel bombed Iraq’s Osirak nuclear plant in 1981 and — unlike the United Nations and the Reagan administration —
defended its right to do so. He says Saudi Arabia has an influence on Washington equal to Israel’s. His votes against support for Israel follow
quite naturally from his opposition to all foreign aid.
Do some research for yourself, you'll see he is the ONLY candidate that truly cares about this nation.
