There is a peak about to occur (Iowa Caucus time!) in the trolling of Occupy Wall Street sites by Ron Paul supporters. After that He and Iowa will both be falling into the dustbin of history for political irrelevance. Iowa has it’s own reasons but Ron Paul, trying to tout his “Revolution” is all talk and no walk and part of the failed system destroying the world. I know without even going into all the details of his dog whistle racism politics, just looking at Ron Pauls donor list I can see he doesn’t represent me.
The following quote was pulled from an Occupy Wall Street page off a thread in a closed group (so don’t bother looking for it) that is supposed to be entirely free of political campaigning. My response I thought, was worth repeating so I’ve re-posted it up here. There are a lot of Ron Paul supporters out there and some of them are my friends. Not all of them understand the power of not endorsing candidates so perhaps sharing this will clarify things…
I want make it clear. I support the Bill of Rights. I want to see it restored as our form of Government. There is only one credible candidate [Ron Paul] that supports and has supported the Bill of Rights. If we cannot agree, well….. what is the point? Who Supports the Restoration of the Bill of Rights?
This was my reply:
This thread you started is not at all about the bill of rights. Very clearly this thread is in support of Ron Paul as the “one and only credible candidate that supports and has supported the Bill of Rights.”
Your insisting upon equating support for Ron Paul as not only synonymous with supporting the bill of rights but the one and only option and suggesting that not supporting Ron Paul is synonymous with not supporting the bill of rights is the argument of an absolutist. It leaves you and your opponent no room to compromise since their view is beneath contempt. They just become non bill of rights supporting losers. Or at least that’s how what you said sounds to me. I guess we don’t like the bill of rights? This is not a logical conclusion. It is your opinion that the only credible candidate is Ron Paul. Nothing more.READ MORE »
