    Newt went off the deep end about the NYC Mosque Community Center... Comparing Muslims to Nazis. WTF.

    My family is Turkish, Yugoslavian, Muslim, Christian, etc. He doesn't have my respect after that sh*t. I liked Paul's statement on the whole matter and his words towards the GOP, which is another reason why I like Ron Paul.

    Re: Ron Paul Wins Presidential Straw Poll at CPAC

    Just got a phone call. A poll being conducted by Real Politics. One question asked me who I thought was going to be the nomination for the repub ticket, but they only named three....

    Mitt Romney
    Mitch Daniels
    and I can't remember the third choice but it wasn't Dr. Paul.

    Look, I think that the Repub administration that takes over in '12 should definitely start eyeing Dr. Paul as a cabinet position holder, but President? Come on....

    Re: Ron Paul Wins Presidential Straw Poll at CPAC

    A few of the many examples of Paul's racist, anti-gay writings:

    June 1990:

    The Pink House? What an outrage that, for the first time in our nation's history, the organized forces of perversion were feted in the White House.... I miss the closet. Homosexuals, not to speak of the rest of society, were far better off when social pressure forced them to hide their activities. They could also not be as promiscuous. Is it any coincidence that the AIDS epidemic developed after they came 'out of the closet,' and started hyper-promiscuous sodomy? I don't believe so, medically or morally.

    October 1990:

    A mob of black demonstrators, led by the "Rev." Al Sharpton, occupied and closed the Statue of Liberty recently, demanding that New York be renamed Martin Luther King City "to reclaim it for our people." Hmmm. I hate to agree with the Rev. Al, but maybe a name change is in order. Welfaria? Zooville? Rapetown? Dirtburg? Lazyopolis? But Al, the Statue of Liberty? Next time, hold that demonstration at a food stamp bureau or a crack house.

    November 1990:

    [David] Duke's platform called for tax cuts, no quotas, no affirmative action, no welfare, and no busing.... To many voters, this seems like just plain good sense. Duke carried baggage from his apst, but the voters were willing to overlook that. And if he had been afforded the forgiveness an ex-communist gets, he might have won.

    December 1990:

    [Martin Luther King, Jr.] was also a comsymp, if not an actual party member, and the man who replaced the evil of forced segregation with the evil of forced integration. King, the FBI files show, was not only a world-class adulterer, he also seduced underage girls and boys. The Rev. Ralph David Abernathy revealed before his death that King had made a pass at him many years before. And we are supposed to honor this "Christian minister" and lying socialist satyr with a holiday that puts him on a par with George Washington?

    January 1991:

    Martin Luther King: Socialist: St. Martin was a world-class philanderer who beat up his paramours ("non-violence" didn't apply in all spheres, I guess). He was a flagrant plagiarist with a phony doctorate. He replaced forced segregation in a few states with forced integration in all states. And he was a dedicated socialist. What a guy. He probably deserves two holidays.

    January 1994:

    [G]ays in San Francisco do not obey the dictates of good sense. They have stopped practicing "safe sex."... First, these men don't really see a reason to live past their fifties. They are not married, they have no children, and their lives are centered on new sexual partners. These conditions do not make one's older years the happiest. Second, because sex is the center of their lives, they want it to be as pleasurable as possible, which means unprotected sex. Third, they enjoy the attention and pity that comes with being sick.

    Agreed. I don't agree with Ron Paul on the issues often times but i think it would be hard to find someone that is more brutally honest on what he believes then he. I wish all elected officials were as honest as him.

    Re: Ron Paul Wins Presidential Straw Poll at CPAC

    it seems more liberals like paul than do cons

    maybe it has something to do with values

    either way the congressman from texas is certainly capable of bluntness

    from his newsletter: "if you have ever been robbed by a black teen-aged male, you know how unbelievably fleet-footed they can be"

    the dude certainly is colorful

    The KOS LOVES Ron Paul...as long as he can be used against the republican party. but let him win the nomination and actually have a lead over Obama and watch how quickly they drag out the charges of racism.

    Which explains why he won the LPAC straw poll the last two years... Oh wait...

    If I want to hear the same crap regurgitated over and over again without any actual critical thinking involved I'll turn on cable news. Leave it to the experts dude.

    Losers

    Ron Paul: Yes, he won the straw poll for the second straight year. But his speech - heavy on talk of defunding the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq as well as odd pronouncements such as "Government should never be able to do anything you can't do" - displayed the limits of his reach within the GOP. Paul is a sensation, but among only a sliver of the Republican electorate.
