Manchester, New Hampshire (CNN) – Republican presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul criticized President Obama Friday for "assassinating" al Qaeda operative Anwar al-Awlaki, saying that the American-born Muslim cleric should have been tried in a U.S. court.







Get over it. A terrorist is a terrorist, no matter where he was born.



This isnt something you would do if you want to be the president, Paul just ended his own candidacy with this statement as predicted Obama will win no matter Which GOP Member wins.

In that same article, Paul is quoted as saying:


"If the American people accept this blindly and casually, that we now have an accepted practice of the president assassinating people who he thinks are bad guys, I think it's sad,"

I agree with that statement.

Why wouldn't he criticise Obama for this? Obama issues an assasination for an American citizen. Claims he has been killed of course it only makes about 5-6 times he is supposedly dead. The man must have more lives than a cat. When do we quit trying people in a court of law? I guess now you just openly murder people who mght have somethng to say that the cohorts don't want said. Would anyone expect Ron Paul to do anythng other than expose the fraud for what it is?

But he maintained his allegiance to the Founders' principles. The Constitution was written to protect ALL American citizens. In a lawful society, the terrorist would have been tried for treason, and if found guilty as I believe he would have been, he would THEN be executed.

I don't think RP will hurt much from this statement. He's said many times over that 9/11 happened as a result of crappy US foreign policy and hasn't hurt much for that statement.

I think people are over the whole "Muslims are evil and a threat to our society" propaganda. It is clearly BS by this point.

The new mantra coming from the fearmongers is "Your independent minded neighbors are dangerous, inform on them". These are the new propaganda marching orders coming from the establishment, this time from the left.

And RP is one of the biggest independent minded ones out there.

I believe his statement here was entirely consistent with what he has been saying all along. I've understood his position to be that America could best show itself to be on higher ground in this war by taking down our enemies with the very system they are trying to destroy. Instead, we're becoming far more LIKE our enemies than anyone would like to admit.

I don't entirely agree with Ron Paul on this, but I respect his direct approach in saying what he believes without qualifications.

Yeah that's pretty much normal. Hannity attacks anyone who doesn't want to be at war all over the place.

So let me see if I understood your point. Ron Paul, in your opinion, has committed political seppuku for:

- Defending the rule of law
- Not being a psychopathic killer
- Demanding fair trials for alleged criminals

Is that about right?
If so, in my book, he just gained a few more tons of respect...if such was possible.
He is a true patriot, legalist, and constitutionalist.

How much more honest, and humanist, must Ron Paul be before everybody sees that he is the only candidate that has the welfare of his country, and it's people as his only agenda?

Notice that due process is applied to all persons, not just citizens. I like being on that side of the argument, because its lawful.

True. When it comes to having a ridiculous, aggressive foreign policy that inevitably creates violent blowback and economically hurts the average American while enriching bankers and gov't contractors, the left and right have been in lockstep for decades.

If RP is taking hits from FOX news as well as MSNBC, he must be doing something right....

what bothers me and what makes me agree with RP is that line

"Get over it. A terrorist is a terrorist, no matter where he was born"

Just recently one of my cousins was named a "domestic terrorist" just to jail him simply because they did not have evidence to actually jail him. Point is..they could call anyone a "terrorist" and kill them or throw them in a jail somewhere.

I support RP 100%.

The the thing about Ron Paul, it seems he care's more about the message, the truth, and liberty. More then his presidency. The media points out the most pointless and irrelevant things about the two pretty boys that
are in the spot light, like arguing over vaccines and things that dont really matter. You know who I am talking about. They just keep putting them on, and people are going to eventually treat them like a holly wood actor.

Ron Paul is just giving real facts, real evidence, and discussing important matters.
Not yelling slogans to hear the crowd applause some more.. This won't hurt his presidency,
obviously the average American would question if Obama really did assassinate this guy unconstitutionally.
(which he did) So in reality its making Obama look bad. Thanks for sharing though this is something i needed to see.

Agreed. Especially since the terrorist watchlists the government keeps putting out has more and more descriptions of people being added who continue to sound like larger and larger numbers of US citizens (seriously...constitutionalists, people who talk about the founding fathers, gun owners, political activists, and on and on...).

To not challenge this is to gladly walk a very slippery slope on which, as things continue to get worse, every american who gets upset about the way things are going and what government is doing finds themselves progressively more likely to suffer the same fate as al Awlaki. Reference the MIAC Militia report (government effectively considers militia as having terroristic tendencies) available here to see some of the different classes of people included in militia awareness, and various other articles that have drifted up over the last few years about those considered potential threats to "national security"...a lot of us here fall under such guidelines, and there's now precendent for preemptive killing.

Barack Obama was bot a terrorist and a participant and funding source for the Kenyan Genicide Back when he was a senator. He has been a cold blooded hitler style murderer the whole time.

www.thegatewaypundit.com...

And yes snopes the commie scum denied it because it wasnt 1million it was 100,000 of obama's personal money.

Funny how snopes gets to lie and then still not tell the truth? I think all the web snapshots of snopes tell their lies pretty clear.

The election for President of the United States...is not for another 13 months.....a lot can happen between then and now.......President Obama could very well not be re-elected.

Your joking right? Criticizing Obama is the fastest way to gain support in the GOP. And Paul was right as an American citizen he should have had a trial.

So, not voting for Ron Paul because he speaks the truth?

That is a sad reflection on the American voter...not Ron Paul.

I'm going to have to disagree with you, OP. Dr. Paul just won a lot of votes that are sympathetic to the amount of deaths and criminal activities being committed at home and abroad by the USGov.
