Ron Paul’s Liberal Record on Border Control

Posted by chip91 on November 11, 2007

    The fence between U.S. and Mexico is a joke. It doesn’t work. It was tested and can be overcome within 30 minutes easy. Might as well dig a moat and put in alligators. Plus, it was being built by illegal immigrants!!! Ron Paul is for beefing up our security, but let’s use something that works. The military is not for the use of our border security. Under the current administration border patrol personnel are sent to Iraq!!! Finally, Ron Paul is not for Amnesty. He specifically states that illegal immigrants should not be rewarded. Please revise you article to reflect that or at least add th video where states tha he is against amnesty.

    This is worthy of a blog posting, American Thinker has a long and detailed post about Paul and his Neo-Nazi support and picking and choosing history.

    HR 4437 passed in 2005, HR 418 passed in 2005, HR 4200 passed, HR 2586 passed. Do we have the border under control as promised? How much have we spent as a result of those 4 bills? What was Ron Paul’s solution?… to leave the borders open??? NO! It was to seal off the borders, and send back the illegals. It was to get our troops out of the 140 countries that they occupy and to use the money that would be spent there, to fortify and protect our OWN country. If you want to expose Ron Paul, Give the REASONS why he voted no. What else was in those bills? If implemented, would they be effective? Apparently not. All were approved and the problem is worse than ever. Who would really suffer if they were passed? Well our liberty is what has suffered. Meanwhile, our President takes orders from the UN to release Mexican child rapists from prison. You only have half the story. Do a little more research and you will find that he may have voted no because items squeezed into those bills are unconstitutional, and he took an oath to support the constitution.

    It was a well written article, but there’s this one little detail that annoys me.

    “In Congress, Ron Paul has been a major roadblock to securing *ARE* borders from Illegal Immigrants.”

    I hate to be the one to point this out; but if there’s one thing I hate more than Ron Paul, it’s bad grammer.

    I’m not sure who is behind this site but I can tell you it’s not Libertarians or Conservatives. Why would a Libertarian be against Ron Paul who ran as a Libertarian in ’88? This site doesn’t make sense at all. Probably just a disgruntled ex-employee or something.

    You are absolute fucking idiots if you think you are going to get better than Ron Paul. He is easily the most libertarian and true conservative of all candidates and most electable you are gonna get.

    You are absolute stupid twats.

  10. TxAg said

    Wow Plex you convinced me. I want to be a Ron Paul supporter just like you! Ron’s going to lose. Plain and simple.

  11. Alex said

    Ron Paul is an idiot.

    Plex and the other Alex are stupid too.

  14. Ron Paul is a constitutionalist. No member of congress is more consistent in using the Constitution as a measure of legislature. It’s an old document, I grant you, but it’s very purpose was and still is to prevent the sort of fascism which is becoming synonomous with the word “America”. For every bill that Ron Paul votes “Nay”, ask how does it violate the Constitution? And then ask if its supporters are in fact more like members of the Nazi Party to empower government to secure corporate interests at the individual citizen’s expense.
