The federal government has no legitimate authority to infringe on the rights of private property owners to use their property as they please and to
form (or not form) contracts with terms mutually agreeable to all parties. The rights of all private property owners, even those whose actions decent
people find abhorrent, must be respected if we are to maintain a free society. -Ron Paul
This is Dr. Paul's comments on the "failure" of the the 1964 Civil Rights Act. So racism should be tolerated and supported just because it happens on
private property? Is a society that tolerates various forms of intolerance and discrimination "free", or just the private property owners? Where does
this Constitutionally end and begin? He wants to throw the baby out with the bathwater. By this standard, if you're a landlord, you can keep
minorities out of housing, just because you don't like them. Or keep them out of the workplace.
He takes these concepts to the fringe, which is why he is a fringe candidate. Individual Rights and States Rights are illegal and unethical if they
trample the freedoms of others. This is all a veiled attempt at a free-for-all, where anything goes, racism, heroin use, etc. Give me a break. He's
marginalizing himself, and all of his followers are mad because they aren't getting their way, just like the Tea Party folks are sore losers who are
continually throwing a hissy fit.
I'm going to opt out of this BS argument now, because there is no reasoning to be attained here. This is all a bunch of polarizing, distracting BS
that keeps everyone arguing about a guy that has no real chance of advancing politically, while the corporations get stronger, continue to wreck the
environment, and exploit poor people and countries.The cops bash heads at protests, and reinforce a police state that is choking the freedoms of
everyone, Right and Left.The system keeps on keeping on. Ron Paul can't, and won't change a damn thing. If he were elected, the 2 party corrupt system
would shut him down. The system as a whole is broken and is no longer sustainable. The value of money is a mass, mutually-agreed-upon illusion with no
real value except what is attributed to it. Countries all over the world are economically imploding. Poulation numbers and food resources are nearing
the tipping point. And you think some old guy is going to come to the rescue and save everyone? Really? The game is over, Folks. This situation is
inherently flawed, and you want to "fix" it, or "save" it.
Pinning your hopes of salvation on any politician, or group of them, is pure folly. This is bigger than a politician, or the Congress, or the Senate,
or The President.
The machinary is breaking down, wake up. Maybe that's the best thing for all of us in the long run.
Think for yourselves, and prepare for tough times. Look after your loved ones, and stop being hypnotized by the flashing lights and rhetoric.
