Palin endorses Ron Paul's position on international militarism
Digital Journal ^ | October 22, 2011 | Michael Krebs

Posted on 10/22/2011 5:09:11 PM PDT by Captain Kirk

“You’ve got to give it to Ron Paul," Palin said. "Whether you agree with everything he says or not, at least he is one there in Congress trying to make our President stick to the law and understand that Congress does have a role to play in these foreign policy decisions that are made and Ron Paul, I think hit the nail on the head, when he came out and said Obama had better be careful when he interjects himself and our country in other nations’ business.”

Kudos to Sarah for saying this but, sadly, like most politicians who say sensible things, she longer is running for, nor holds, public office.

Here in Kentucky we remember and respect the idea that some folks would rather be right than be President.

Agree with the part about bringing the troops home and stop waisting money on foreign wars.

It’s too bad he doesn’t know where to draw the line, because Ron Paul really does have the right idea about a lot of stuff. He just crosses over into the “nut” zone too often to have credibility with a lot of people.

Rand Paul is a lot better.

Well that is a willful misreading of what Palin actually said. She was praising Paul for pushing that the President needed to get Congressional approval for his actions. She was not blanket endorsing Paul’s “Blame America First” nuttiness

Hannity in a radio interview with Dr. Paul this week sided with Dr. Raul, as Paul got to give his full story not just the clips of quotes that were always played. Hannity said he agreed with Dr. Paul, if our fighting men and women were not given the tools and direction necessary they needed to win a war then they should not remain. When Afghanistan was showing real success, we suddenly focused on Iraq. Paul's Interview with Hannity was an eye opener for me, and I am not dismissing him as I once was. They both agreed perhaps they agreed on more than they had thought, as both had made biting comments about one another. Paul's son had prompted his father to be on the show.

Dr. Paul also said we could balance the budget in 3 years under his plan, 8 years under another plan his son and Hannity supported which Dr. Paul said was a excellent plan as well.

Hannity [a registered conservative] said he wanted Ron Paul to appear on his show more often, as it would get his message out to a larger viewing audience. Paul said he would take it under consideration.

I agree with Palin if she was refering to this interview of this week. She is part of the Fox team.

This is the Ron Paul economic plan in agreement.

The interview is here but I am not an Insider.

Sarah appears to agree with Ron Paul on this narrow issue, but no one should state or imply that she agrees with Ron Paul on all or even most foreign relations issues.

I heard that interview on Hannity. I don’t hear Ron Paul’s voice often. I thought he sounded very coherent, not what you hear some Freepers say about him.

"endorsing Paul’s “Blame America First” nuttiness"

Speaking of misreading; IMO Paul has not "blamed America first". His statement was merely that we should at least pay attention to the reasons the jihadists gave for attacking us. That does not make it "blaming America".

He talks fiscal responsibility and I know he’s a Constitutionalist. To his benefit, he doesn’t need the “cult of personality” thing. He might just go in and do what needs to be done. Damn the torpedoes!

So far Paul is the only candidate that has stated that he will reduce the size, cost, reach and intrusiveness of the federal government.

Sadly some here are upset that he will cut their “sacred” parts of it too.

He’s also the craziest candidate too. Like I said, moments of clarity. Guess I’d still vote for him over 0 or Mitt. More moments of clarity.

We might get to hear more of him now..he is far from being a "nut". I am as biased as the next, to some degree, when it comes to "appearance", I am ashamed to say. That bias we tend to have on what looks presidential (weight, hair, face; etc) might have just us passing over the best of the pack.

Geek-ness is In! and has been for some time now. Look at our most successful Internet gurus/business leaders. The ones with the hair/face are only for talk show= TV news/commentary.

I would hope not....the man is insane. I won’t support Romney or Paul in a general election. Romney is an obvious liberal.....but Paul is just nuts...and a libertarian pretending to be a Republican. He shouldn’t even be in the GOP primary. He appeals to the young and naive, dope smokers, and anti-war liberals. The man is a wack job.

He is not far from it. Openly endorsing and campaining for code pink activist, 9/11 truther for Congress and repeated appearances on the Alex Jones show automatically disqualify him from being a rational choice for public office.

He appeals to me about many things I think are important Sola and I am not remotely young,naive, a dope smoker or an anti-war liberal.

I don’t understand why you think he appeals only to those groups or why you want to denigrate those who listen with an open mind.

It’s a situation in which I might not agree with everything but I agree with a great deal of what he says and he has influenced the discussion of how to make things better for our economy and our individual liberties.

“I don’t understand why you think he appeals only to those groups or why you want to denigrate those who listen with an open mind.”

Because if you will study the “Libertarian” party and libertarians in general...you will find they are mainly anarchists using “liberty” as their excuse. They want to legalize drugs and prostitution. I consider them Libertine not Libertarian. Ron Paul IS NOT a Republican, and should NOT be in the Republican primary. Don’t be surprised if once he loses the primary, which he will, he will run as the Libertarian Party nominee. He isn’t even remotely loyal to Republican conservatism.

Also, he is just WRONG on his extreme views on isolationism and non-intervention. It was fools like him that allowed Hitler and Japan to get out of control leading up to Pearl Harbor. IF America had not been so isolationist, maybe the holocaust and the many horrors of the 2nd World War may not have happened. The man is a fool, and I seriously think he is not mentally sane.

I don’t mean to insult you. However, what you call “having an open mind” is just being “naive.” You do fall within the categories I mentioned. I’m glad you are not a dope smoker.... :-)

samantha,

I don’t know you or Nonstatist; however, you seem to be the one who missed the other poster’s point. Sarah is now dancing FOR the stars, not WITH the stars.

Just admit that you didn’t get Nonstatist’s point to begin with (which I thought was clever) and admonished him/her with the “correct” title of the stupid show.

She is now a cheer-leader from the sideline, no longer a quarterback, sad to say.

Dancing for the stars can have several meanings none of them flattering or humorous, and ignorant people that are not familiar with the show get the name wrong.

You seem to sadly be falling into the clueless act of covering for creeps who slam SP. People that are as clear as mud, but think they are clever need to get a second opinion before they show their ignorance.

FreeDeerHawk: I don’t understand why you think he appeals only to those groups or why you want to denigrate those who listen with an open mind.

Sola Veritas: you will find [libertarians] are mainly anarchists using “liberty” as their excuse. They want to legalize drugs and prostitution...

Yawn. The same old "libertarians are anarchists" meme, followed quickly by the embracing of statism with respect to contraband law as well as privacy and free association rights.

Don't worry, FreeDeerHawk, prohibition works! Remember how great things worked out when alcohol was made illegal?

Personally, I'm getting sick and tired of being asked to choose between left wing authoritarianism and right wing authoritarianism. Neither of these competing brands of majority Tyranny will never win my loyalty.

That's why I am not an authoritarian, except in cases where someone is committing an actual crime of force or fraud, infringing directly on the rights of another. I'll never believe in imprisoning someone merely for possessing the wrong plant, or negotiating a voluntary service contract which I disapprove of.

It's not his voice that is crazy. It's when he goes on Alex Jones' show or some of the other crap that is disassociated with reality. If he toned down some of his rhetoric in certain areas, he'd be doing a lot better in the polls.

“His [Ron Paul’s ]statement was merely that we should at least pay attention to the reasons the jihadists gave for attacking us.”

Yeah, like our siding with the JOOS vs the terrorstinians is WRONG DUDE!

And sending some troops to train the Saudis AT THEIR REQUEST is WRONG, we should have been listening to REAL SAUDIS like OSAMA BIN LADEN.

And oh yeah, Iran only wants nukes for electricity, & it’s not our business, besides, THE JOOS HAVE NUKES so the Iranians NEED THEM TOO because the EVIL JOOS could attack IRAN WITH NUKES...

/ sarcasm off for the intellectually challenged, sack-missing, dope-heads who think we should give a FLYING F*CK what Hitler or Osama or Ama-d-bag or any other deranged, goat-humping, CAMEL FELLATING woman-and-child-raping Fislamic POS thinks about America, or “gives as reasons for their sense of injustice....”

Ron Paul and his “foreign policy” can KISS MY FAT NEW YORK *SS.

Oh yeah, almost forgot: a vote for Ron Paul IS A VOTE FOR FREAKING OBAMA, NUMBSKULLS.

I guess, Captain Kirk, "We the People", is on the back burner as far as your are concerned.
