Its okay let them call us druggies and idiots. They are sell outs and traitors. Their job is not to have an opinion. Our job is. And Ill be voicing that opinion all the way as I drop in my vote for Dr. Paul. Thats the difference.

lol.


I'm actually amazed he hasn't been killed yet. I'm thinking they are afraid, and with good reason, that it would trigger problems.


I am encouraged by the fact that every attack causes him to rise even higher in polls.


Here's hopeful me for him as president.

Ron Paul has my vote.I would like my grandchildren to have at least the lifestyle that I can afford.(middle class). I am not a young stupid kid, I have been voting since Nixon. He just seems to be the only credible candidate willing to do anything. If he was the idiot the news services would have you to believe, how has he managed to keep his position for 30 years? Reality check anyone????

Taken from the article the OP linked to on CNN:

www.cnn.com...


Written by David Frum

Editor's note: David Frum, a CNN contributor, was a special assistant to President George W. Bush from 2001 to 2002. He is the author of six books, including "Comeback: Conservatism That Can Win Again," and is the editor of FrumForum.



HEADLINE "Ron Paul: Codger, crank or more?"

So the first is smear to age, then a hint to insanity or fringe, then "more" as the premise. Yellow Journalism defined.

SPECIAL NOTES:


"However, Paul now is gaining a larger following, especially among younger voters attracted by his message of drug legalization and his comprehensive -- if utterly wrong-headed -- explanation of the country's economic crisis."


Basically young druggies or pot smokers with no understanding of economics or our nation's economic problems. Gotcha...


Unexpectedly, young voters seem also to appreciate Paul's grandfatherly anti-charisma: his self-presentation as a good-natured old codger charmingly baffled by the modern world
Yet at debates he's one of the most charismatic and here we go again with the term "Codger'.

"Baffled by the modern world"...another smear with no evidence.


The ill-fitting suits, the quavering voice and the slack-jawed laugh all support the image of an anti-politician, the lone voice of integrity in a sullied word.


Wow

The rest of the article goes on to basically bring in the newsletters,
1)Anti Semitism
2)Holocaust Denial
3) Lew Rockwell
4) the "Alleged' Million dollars supposedly earned
5) calls Ron Paul a "Daffy old Coot" FOR EXTRA MEASURE
6)Calls Ron Paul a "Huckster"
7) Calls him a man saturated in racism and extremism.
8)Calls him a "monetary crank".
9) And ends with the quote "and this latest presidential campaign represents the summit of his bunco artist career, his very own "Springtime for Hitler."

A song most notably performed in a movie called "The Producers" by Mel Brooks.




This is a pure hit piece. Plain and simple. No objectivity. Overt and subliminal smears the whole article through.

The "LEFT" and Neoliberals hate him for whatever many reasons, but it's the Neocons and the Zionists who will plan his harshest attacks. It always is. He made the mistake of Non Interventionism policy coupled with Anti War stance, speaking of blowback, and dismissing the fear of Iranian "Nukes".

Paul is going to be trounced out at all costs to these vile people. The only way to fight it is with counter information and call them out every time they try to manipulate.

This isn't over, they're cornered and more dangerous.

I do believe based on their works of note through history, these sociopaths would try to harm RP if it looked as if he was getting too close to the White House.

Yes Paul's Supporters are druggies and idiots. They are also criminals and murderers and the people behind the financial collapse caused by their embezzlement. They also falsified evidence to deceive the UN into allowing unlawful military engagements.

Ladies and Gentlemen, The republican party.

I have deliberately avoided reading any of the mountain of propaganda oozing from everywhere with this guys name on it. Until tonight I took a wee glance at a few sites and threads and it all makes sense now.

Talk about smoke and #ing mirrors. FFS are you really all this gullible?

Didn't any of your parents warn you about taking candy from strange men? You do realise the same chemical companies that made something illegal in the 1940's to destroy their main competitor, the hemp rope and fabric industry, i.e DuPont, and various now global oil companies are the same families of hoods that make up the republican party.

I knew their was something funny going on. Ron Paul spews vague cryptic wink-wink promises to legalize weed all the time it's no wonder everybody is doing flips and twists to find ways to big up the guy.

Political suicide anyone? Only the young want weed legalised due to the irrational fear of outdated and no longer widely enforced laws. Going down this road alienates all the crusty old farts and republicans who get full on chubby's about cracking down on the demon weed. The mentality is clear, a derrogatory racist slang term used as part of the origional disinfo campaign in the 1940's is still used in the US widely as the proper legal name for it. No way any of the dunderheads that have strived to keep something so benign illegal for decades are going to suddenly just be ok with it.

Most sane people want it legal. Myself included. Most sane people will not be tricked into voting for crooks to facilitate this though. That's where they have shot themselves in the foot. It isn't worth it to let the republicans back into power.

Unjust and outdated or unfair laws are not blindly obeyed by people with sufficient bravado. Mickey Mouse laws are not taken seriously amongst most adults and most folk discreetly disregard them as the invalid #e they are. Offering to legalise something that wasnt a crime in the first place to win an election has to be one of the daftest and ill advised republican tactics ever seen.

Very dirty pool play to dangle a carrot at the only age section of voters that take prohibition seriously and who are also the most targeted by law enforcement on this matter.

Republicans are so dumb and quick to stereotype this may have even been origionally conceived as the only way they could steal votes from a black president as their logic is 'black people love weed' lets offer to legalize it !

This is the all time most intelligence insulting messed up republican vote swaying tactic in recent memory. I'm gobsmacked.

The republican desparation to win back votes is hysterical to watch. The flailing nonsense randomly spewing forth, The party lashing out collectively like a wounded bear constantly and in very infantile ways.

We'll just vote to keep republicans out of the White house. Most Americans want Cannabis legalised but not that badly. Plus if you think they would actually follow through on this empty promise you are kidding yourselves.

If I smoked pot, (which I dont). I think I'd prefer to be a criminal than live in a police state run by thieves. That's just me though.

Ron Paul is a puppet and just another in a long line of suits full of bugger-all from the house of Bush.

If you go against the grain you must be chemically dependent according to stupid


According to CNN and some people on this web site OWS protesters are druggies too, I am a Ron Paul supporter as well as OWS supporter. So i guess it must be true. I am a drug addict now oh well. If they say it's true then it must be right? No need for proof we are living in a world of hearsay and bold claims that hold no water.


And i dont blame people for wanting to escape reality and become a junkie... what is there to lose?

Sad but untrue/true

The media... birds of a feather


FOX: unfair and biased

CNN: insult your intelligence

Just fir the record i am no junkie but alcohol is my poison. I like beer. At least get it right CNN and whomever may be concerned. We are not all starbucks and snapple tea drinkers fanboys either. The stereo types are pretty damn lame at least make us out to be something we are. The media invents these things to fill the void of discomfort Ron Paul and other formats of resistance brings their handlers. This is a good sign as be it confirmation. Also publicity is a powerful weapon. If they are hating you then you are doing something right.


thanks media tools


gods speed Ron Paul

angus1745 You have mighty strong words against a party that I can not see as any worse than the other one. Need I remind you our great and wonderful pres is a democrat? Just a pawn of Bush, I'm sure. I did not decide to vote for Dr Paul because of weed, I actually studied the candidates! This my be a shock to you but I am not impressed with Obama.I just want my kids and grand kids to have a chance for a good life and not have to pay the rest of their lives for mistakes made by politicians in my time. We need strong cohesive leadership and we are not getting it from the people in office. The only presidential hopeful even talking about the long term American future is Ron Paul. The democrats have let us down also, mud slinging is not really appropriate. The American people need to work together for the future, our own, and the future of our grand children,

wow

today's media really disappoints me

PAUL IS NOT FOR LEGALZING DRUGS YOU MAIN STREAM MORONS!

He's for letting the STATES decide, and for the government to NOT tell you how to live your life.

Talk about manipulating his words, pathetic journalism

utterly wrong economic view?

Are you kidding me?

Some people just don't understand, they want to spend all their time extending bad ideas and putting on bandages that easily fall off, Ron Paul wants to try to actually fix things. He wants to go to the core of the problem and heal the wound. And well, some people won't and don't get that.

These journalists that're writing these articles with nasty language and blatant propaganda are ridiculous, they would never do that to any other candidate. Even if they didn't like the candidate, they would still try to report some type of non bias view.

You are just wrong about RP wanting to legalize marijuana.

He simply wants the federal Government to take it's nose out of every states business. He wants the states to decide their laws. Ya know, that little bit in the Constitution of the Unites States?

It's not even about weed, it's about not having the government control every facet of the state. And with that it includes many other things besides marijuana.

Ron Paul doesn't go out campaigning with buttons and signs that say "legalize it". The idea of it is a conclusion you can make due to his view on a smaller government that doesn't restrict, doesn't have it's tentacles spread out across every state.

And with less restrictions and regulations you have more opportunity for growth.

Oh and your comment about how this is a tactic being used to sway voters is ridiculous.."black people like weed." Lets offer to lagalize it!"...really? Where are you getting this stuff??

It's not a "tactic" , it's an idea of a less controlling government. Which has a lot of positives for the people of America.

The only person CNN won't ridicule and run down as a right wing nutjob at one time or another is Obama himself. They'll drop petals at his feet once the race has firmed up to the final challenger to Dear Leader. Until then, we have quite some time of this garbage to go...and I'm sure Ron Paul has a REAL thick skin after being on the wrong side of TPTB for as many years as he has.

Welcome to the most vile campaign season yet seen in American History. I've read about some real ugly stuff in some of the post war (civil) campaigns, but I think this one will set all time new lows and moments of sheer shock within voters than any before it. We'll see 11 months from now, how bad it's been.

Congressman Paul cannot be allowed to gain momentum in Iowa, either within the Republican field or in preparation for a third-party general election run. Our country's future literally hangs in the balance.

www.shreveporttimes.com...

Now when this person states "Our country's future literally hangs in the balance"
What balance is he talking about?

Iran or NK will attack the US because Ron P. as President?
or...
The beginning of the end of the status quo?

I think its the latter. I think many who profit from the system as it currently stands fear change.

The majority of Ron Paul's support is younger people. There is nothing wrong with that. It's comprised of a very broad number of unique people. Some support legalization of drugs, some support bringing the troops home, some support smaller government, some support full restoration of the US constitution, some support the right of the State to decide important matters on a state level, some support less regulation, some support conservative views, some support a strong military, some support only military use by an act of congress..........................


The damn list goes on and on and on and on and on and on................

You get the point right? Ron Paul supporters are Americans. Americans are individuals who in a particular time in US history share one collective thought and that is Ron Paul.
