Ron Paul the Anti-Progressive

It's tragic that some leftists are getting behind Ron Paul's campaign at least to upset the GOP race. Ron Paul is NOT a progressive, he is a right-wing nationalist, like Pat Buchanan. He has connections with the John Birch Society and other racist and anti-semitic groups. Even at his worst, Barack Obama is more "progressive" than Ron Paul.

Ron Paul's "anti-interventionism" is not based on progressive principles, he is a right-wing nationalist, like Pat Buchanan. Ron Paul's feign policy would UNDERMINE many progressive goals. He opposes the UN and every international organization. He opposed the US "intervention" in WWII to "save the Jews." Those who oppose ALL intervention, even for humanitarian reasons or to stop genocides, are not "progressive." (Being against ALL and EVERY use of military force, even to stop genocides, is not "progressive" to me. Yes military actions often involve killing innocent people, but is it more moral or "progressive" to step aside and allow genocides? (WWII, Bosnia, etc.?) Don't those who oppose ALL intervention also have "blood" on their hands? According to Ron Paul, "Saving the Jews in WWII Was None of Our Business"!

Ron Paul's anti-interventionism is almost identical to Pat Buchanan's, in fact, Ron Paul is an admirer of Pat Buchanan's (another racist right-wing nationalist!)

In January 1992, Paul writes about his consideration of a presidential bid which he dashed after Pat Buchanan expressed his intention to run. Paul wrote of “the essential compatibility between [Buchanan’s] ideas and mine” and “agreed to serve as the chairman of his economic advisory committee.”

A 1992 issue of the Rothbard-Rockwell-Report tells of Paul’s decision to defer to Pat Buchanan in the 1992 Republican presidential primary.

Christ man, are you serious? Why do some of you fake progressives pay more attention to a man's personal feelings on a matter than what his POLICY decisions would be regarding it?

Ron Paul was AGAINST don't ask don't tell and is the ONLY candidate (including the President himself) who's openly stated the government should NEVER interfere in marriage NO MATTER HOW it's defined by any given individual or group.

See, the problem here is that statists, both so-called progressives and so-called conservatives, are constantly trying to wrestle for a grip on POWER to COMPEL one another to be this way or that. Ron Paul, THE REAL PROGRESSIVE, is the one saying that NO ONE, not the State, nor the group or individual, has the right to COERCE anyone into doing ANYTHING. It's called the NON-AGRESSION axiom, and only libertarians seem to understand this.

But go on, vote for the guy bombing half the world, assassinating American citizens and their children, and claiming the right he has the power to do anything he wants, whenever he wants, including indefinitely detaining without trial, American citizens. So long as you delude yourself into believing he's sympathetic to the gay community, which he's NOT. Just as he's all too willing to ESCALATE the Drug War which ravages the black and latino community.

Are you as nuts as Ron Paul?? Obama is Not bombing "half the world," or assassinating American citizens (unless you count the al qaeda terrorist planning terrorist attacks in yemen!), etc. You suffer from "Obama Derangement Sydrome" dumbs!
Ron Paul is a homophobic racist! And Libertarians are nothing but SOCIAL DARWINISTS.
