From Fox News:

Don Feder has more about what makes Ron Paul tick.

Not a pretty picture at all, and I can personally vouch for Mr. Feder’s accuracy.

Lord above help us if that flake Ron Paul gets in. That even goes for us here in Australia.

Ron Paul was one of the only few politicians to have opposed US intervention in the Balkans of behalf of Muslims while the Neocons and like Pearle worked hand and glove with jihadists in the Balkans and are working again with them in the Mid East first by toppling Saddam in Iraq and now Syria for the geopolitical interests of Israel which has resulted in the persecution and ethnic cleansing of Christians.

Ron Paul even cites our assistance to the KLA in Kosovo as an example of US flawed foreign policy.

“Both Jefferson and Washington warned us about entangling ourselves in the affairs of other nations. Today, we have troops in 130 countries. We are spread so thin that we have too few troops defending America. And now, there are new calls for a draft of our young men and women.

We can continue to fund and fight no-win police actions around the globe, or we can refocus on securing America and bring the troops home. No war should ever be fought without a declaration of war voted upon by the Congress, as required by the Constitution.

Under no circumstances should the U.S. again go to war as the result of a resolution that comes from an unelected, foreign body, such as the United Nations.

Too often we give foreign aid and intervene on behalf of governments that are despised. Then, we become despised. Too often we have supported those who turn on us, like the Kosovars who aid Islamic terrorists, or the Afghan jihadists themselves, and their friend Osama bin Laden. We armed and trained them, and now we’re paying the price.

At the same time, we must not isolate ourselves. The generosity of the American people has been felt around the globe. Many have thanked God for it, in many languages. Let us have a strong America, conducting open trade, travel, communication, and diplomacy with other nations.”

I made common cause with Ron Paul during the Clinton years, when it came to opposing the war against the Serbs. But even then, I had my differences with him.

I do not consider myself a libertarian; I’m a conservative (not “paleo” or “neo”, just a conservative). Or, rather, I once was a libertarian of sorts, but that was many decades ago. I left it when it was time to put away childish things. Libertarianism is wrong about foreign policy because it is based on illusions. I could not put my faith in libertarianism as a sort of secular religion, as Ron Paul evidently does, because of what I know about the way totalitarian ideology works on the human spirit.

To a libertarian, there is no need to worry about totalitarian evildoers who can be deterred only by fear, who practice duplicity, and who will try to use our own rules, ideals, and good qualities against us. If we just keep to ourselves, those foreign enemies will leave us alone. Bzzzzt, wrooooong. The real world requires that we deal with totalitarianism in whatever form it presents itself, and deal with it vigorously and decisively, if we hope to maintain any freedom at all.

Because Ron Paul is a libertarian, he cannot bring himself to see that Islam itself is our enemy. Islam is our enemy and will remain so, by its own definition, regardless of whatever the US does (or refrains from doing), simply because the US is not Muslim.

Islam is not a religion in the Constitutional sense of the word. It isn’t anything we can do business with or meet with friendship. Instead, it is an expansionist, enemy, totalitarian political ideology that seeks to eliminate everything outside of itself. In their twisted definition, Muslims see that as defending Islam.

Jihadi activity (in other words, Muslim aggression) isn’t about us, it’s about Islamic doctrine, which allows Muslims no choice but to spread Islam by every means available, whether anyone else likes it or not. For that reason, the proponents of Islamic expansionism are infiltrating everywhere they can, including in our own backyard. Islam is the antithesis of liberty, and yet the Muslims use the outward forms of our liberty to destroy us.

And no, I’m not a “peacenik.” If the US were to intervene AGAINST Muslims and on behalf of Christians and Jews, I’d be all in favor of it, and so would many other Americans. My problem with our Balkans policy is not “interventionism” per se, but the fact that the US government was, and still is, intervening on the wrong side! In other words, the US government has been backing Muslim interests all over the world, when we should have been OPPOSING them. We must treat Islam the same way we treated Nazism and Stalinism: quarantine it, contain it, collapse it, and discredit it once and for all.

Editor’s note: We are publishing this comment with a few remarks in italics.

1389, What you are sir, is a person with no moral fortitude.

How may times does 1389AD have to say that she is a woman before these quasi-illiterates get it?

You have no loyalty it sounds like to me. You live in this world that the powers to be guide you to live in. War is a huge money maker. That is what it is all about. You would have us go against the poor in Nations like Iran and Syria for who’s sake? Ours? We are BROKE. You would have our government spend us until our economy crashes, the dollar is no more and the world, through the U.N. demands that we give up our Constitution and individual liberty, our freedom, and become one with the world as slaves.

We are not too sure what this person is trying to say. But it sounds like this person thinks that he is one of the few people on earth smart enough to know that wars cost money.

A wasr is coming.

I would love to know what a “wasr” is. It sounds like some sort of monster that should be coming down the street shortly. Maybe in this guy’s mind, Ron Paul can save us from these wasr monsters.

China knows it, the President of China just told their Navey to start preparing for war with the United States.

Wow, if those Chinese folk can afford to put and extra “e” in their navy, we better have Ron Paul get Congress to declare war right away. I am just not sure who Doug would like Congress to declare war upon.

There is your war sir.

He is really in a generous mood. He is giving 1389AD a sex-change operation and a war in the same sentence. Hey, Santa Claus, sit up and take notice; you have competition from Doug!

Have at it. World wide nuclear war is coming. The entire worlds economy is going to crash that will lead to it.

So nuclear wars are caused by economic crashes? Who knew? Wait until the Harvard School of Economics hears about this one!

I would rather have a President that believes in our Constitution and Bill of Rights when this happens, that will lead us to fight against this comming oppression and fight to keep our freedoms.

We never thought of this one before. If you are in nuclear war, a fallout shelter might be nice, but Doug things what will really save us from the bomb is holding up a copy of the Constitution and its first 10 Amendments.

?All progressives like Romney, Gingrich and Santorum are actually our enemies at this point.

An upside-down question mark at the beginning of a sentence is the proper way to start a Spanish-language question. Not sure what right-side-up ones at the beginning of a sentence mean in English. He is calling two strong conservatives in the race, namely Santorum and Gingrich, “progressives.” Equating either of them with Romney makes no sense whatsoever. Would we be reading too much into things by guessing that English is not his first language?

I hope people wake up to these truths soon. If these things seem like “truths,” trust us, you are not only asleep, but dreaming.

We at the 1389 blog welcome comments for all readers. However, we find that our readers write their best comments when they are 1) sober 2) not stoned and 3) sane. Not that these are absolute requirements, but they are suggestions to help us decide whether or not to approve your comments. Thanks, Doug!
