Conservatives and Libertarians United Against Ron Paul

Watching what Ron Paul does. Not what he says.

Ron Paul: Your typical politician

Posted by chip91 on August 4, 2007

“Ron Paul personifies the Founding Fathers’ ideal of the citizen-statesman. He makes it clear that his principles will never be compromised, and they never are.”

Ha! Ron Paul says he’s pro-life, but has a solidly pro-choice voting record. He says he’s against gay marriage, but voted against an amendment banning it. He says he supports second amendment rights, but has voted to make it harder to have the right to bear arms. Click on the tabs above to learn more. Does “libertarian” Ron Paul really have the principles he claims he has? Or is he just your typical politician who panders to his base?

    Or is “Conservatives against Ron Paul” are unable to understand that the U.S. Constitution doesn’t allow for the Federal Government to make laws covering most of those topics?

    Oops….sorry, that would be our government following the Rule of Law. Can’t have Conservatives actually noticing that fact.

    Also considering that CARP didn’t give links to which laws Rep. Paul for or against, that should be a quick indicator that CARP just wants to libel Rep. Paul and not give the REAL facts.

    If the Bloggers for ‘CARP’ can actually give us poor idiots on the internet a cite from the Constitution that gives the Federal Government the lawful ability to makes laws on these matters then Ron Paul just might be wrong in these matters.

    Knowing they can’t, I would ask them to retract the above statement and any others that demean Dr. Paul. If you don’t understand, or having read the Constitution recently, here is a link.

    These fools at this website actually think Rudy, Mitt, Fred and John are more conservative than Ron Paul. Welcome to the stupid party. You know the party establishment that tells people George Bush is a conservative.

    How is what you say show that he is FOR gay “marriage”? He believes that the Federal government is strictly limited to what is in the constitution—-specifically he believes in the ninth and tenth amendments.

    For example, the Tenth Amendment says that: “The Powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

    WHERE does Article I, Section 8 talk about marriage?

    If you could, if you would please, show me where it mentions marriage, then you might have a point and I will concede you are right.

    From post World War II conservative founder Russell Kirk to Richard Weaver there is a belief in state rights. Real conservatives do not look for the Federal government to solve all the problems or whatnot, but instead seek more local government.

    I’d like a bill number for each of the claims you make.

    Many neoconservatives do not know they are neoconservatives. Many of them believe they are in fact conservative, even though they’ve been led into following many leftist or neoconservative policies.

    One neoconservative asked me to explain the difference. I guess he thought I couldn’t.

    No one is more pro-Second Amendment than Ron Paul. I suppose you prefer Skull & Bones alum George W. Bush, who favors a renewal of the 1994 “assault weapons” ban.

  8. No, his votes are consistent with his belief that abortion is not the prerogative of the Federal government because it is not enumerated in the Constitution.

    This also means that he wants Roe Vs. Wade repealed. There are very good, pro-life abortion laws in many states (including mine, UT) which are made null by Federal involvement through rulings like Roe and funding to State Health Dept’s etc.

    The best way to advance the Pro-Life cause the quickest would be to remove Federal involvement from the issue.

  9. Failure to support Federal involvement in the issue of abortion does not equate to a Pro-Choice position.

    Ever hear of the tenth amendment? State’s rights?

    Look into Paul’s bill the “Sanctity of Life Act” of 2005 which would effectively overturn Roe v Wade constitutionally with a mere majority vote in Congress and the President’s signature.
