Ron Paul: Phony Populist

Posted on November 29, 2011 by Lew Rockwell

Of course, Ron is the one real populist in the race, always appealing to the people over the heads of the establishment and its media, but Gary Weiss can't stand it. According to Gary, commenting on Ron's inclusion of OWS protesters at a NH speech:

"It was a masterful performance. Ron Paul — fraudulent populist, friend of the oligarchy, sworn enemy of every social program since Theodore Roosevelt — had won the day, again."

Of course, social programs were invented by oligarchs like Bismarck, Teddy, and FDR, or tools of the oligarchy like LBJ and Nixon, to enlarge and enrich the state and its plutocratic masters, and to make the people more dependent and therefore less troublesome. The Koch Bros. are anti-Ron; George Soros, too.

Oh, and another thing wrong with Ron, according to Weiss: the Old Right was against The Good War. See, some world wars, and their 50 million corpses, are wonderful. So we are enjoined to fear the peacemaker, and demonize him, by a guy who allegedly agrees with Ron's foreign policy. (Thanks to Saleh Abdullah)

Ron Paul isn't just some Globalist minion betraying America like so many others in the Legislature are.

He has been on point with the same consistant message for over 20 years.

Re-elected to Congress from Texas 11 times.

Lew Rockwell hey? The Nazi's tell the truth hey? Murray Rothbrand denied the holocaust straight after the war...

Do you even understand what a libertarian is? Do you know the difference between Napoleon III and Adolf Hitler? There is not any!!! Why did the Italians kick the Austrians out of Italy? Let the BANKS write the RULES OF SOCIETY HEY SOUNDS SOMETHING LIKE THE FOUNDING FATHERS DECIDED TO KICK THE ENGLISH OUT DOESN'T IT?

How brainwashed are you freaks I OWN THE MONEY SUPPLY AND DO AS I SAY NEONAZI, LIBERTARIAN FREAKS?

Keep attacking everything but your beloved LIBERTARIAN HERO MILTON FRIEDMAN AND JUST KEEP GIVING THE BANKS AN EXTRA 3% OF THE TOTAL MONEY SUPPLY AS THEY ARE THE REAL PRODUCERS OF SOCIETY!!!!!!

The mises institute is against the industrial revolution, democratic revolution so go and live in Austria where the ideas come from!!!! Using the lost tribes of Israel to further your agenda and that German Banker who invented Zeitgiest at the same time the French created Say's Law is just joke that you take as Ron Paul original thinking. Go back to living when a wheelburrow was a technological advancement....

How else was Germany going to stop people from invading Germany? Keep living like the Indian Tribes? It worked out well for them!!!!!

The libertarians have brainwashed the French, English, Russians, Dutch and now they have focused their attention on America since the Yalta Conference as who own's the money supply is the country that runs the world!!!!!!!

Sign language the new language of America!!!!!

But hey like all right wing political parties they need religion and the lost tribes of Israel to make their decisions for them!!!!!!

Most of the banksters are WASPs, so the old Rothschild meme is out of place. I don't care about the religion of a bankster because it is not being practiced in their business other than the religion of economics. The problem is their greed, selfishness and narcissism, not their religious heritage or ethnic identity.

As for Mr. Paul and his cult of devotees, we can agree about ending the empire's military reach; but we will disagre about subsequent foreign policy issues where genuine internationalism is involved.

We can all agree that what is going on with Wall St. is wrong and that the government has not dealt with the banksters or the system of finance. We will disagree on how to fix things.

Having been through the Austrian School several times on this site, I have concluded that it is pure theory with no examples of successful implementation. As theory, it repeats the larger economic man myth where social reality is enclosed by market reductionism. As Patel says, the price of everything is the value of nothing.

Can Democrats Set Out a New Path?

Democrats must embrace a pro-government platform, not run away from it.

Those were the sentiments of Senator Chuck Schumer today, in a speech given at the National Press Club. Talking about the reasons for Democrats’ losses on Election Day, Schumer said that those losses were proof that the American people and middle-class want a government that will work more effectively for them.
