“The libertarian-leaning presidential candidate says he was unaware, in the late 1980s and early 1990s, of the bigoted rhetoric about African Americans and gays that was appearing under his name. He told CNN last week that he still has “no idea” who might have written inflammatory comments such as “Order was only restored in L.A. when it came time for the blacks to pick up their welfare checks”—statements he now repudiates.”
My bold Ron had no idea what the head of the Ludwig von Mises Institute and its founder an Austrian Economist Group whose views Ron still backs was writing in his name?
He had no idea that what the same person who was his congressional chief of staff from 1978 to 1982, and was a vice president of Ron Paul & Associates was writing in his name in in his newsletter? The Buck stops here Harry Truman said Ron needs at the very least to show he can run a business and when employees of his business destroy his brand name that he can punish them if he wants to be President. That is assuming that Ron is really not a racist.
Why would we want a President even more out of touch than Senile Reagan was during Iran Contra? Answer me that Paulites:)
“Yet in interviews with reason, a half-dozen longtime libertarian activists—including some still close to Paul—all named the same man as Paul’s chief ghostwriter: Ludwig von Mises Institute founder Llewellyn Rockwell, Jr.
“Financial records from 1985 and 2001 show that Rockwell, Paul’s congressional chief of staff from 1978 to 1982, was a vice president of Ron Paul & Associates, the corporation that published the Ron Paul Political Report and the Ron Paul Survival Report. The company was dissolved in 2001. During the period when the most incendiary items appeared—roughly 1989 to 1994—Rockwell and the prominent libertarian theorist Murray Rothbard championed an open strategy of exploiting racial and class resentment to build a coalition with populist “paleoconservatives,””
My bold If a *cough * friend took advantage of me like that to run his own racist political agenda that is counter my own political agenda I would not let him near me and would sue his pants off. I would not let him keep profiting off me. Assuming that I was really not a racist of course.
“To this day Rockwell remains a friend and advisor to Paul—accompanying him to major media appearances; promoting his candidacy on the LewRockwell.com blog; publishing his books; and peddling an array of the avuncular Texas congressman’s recent writings and audio recordings.”
Go on explain why if Ron isn’t a racist he still has close ties to the guy who wrecked his reputation?
“Besides Ron Paul and Lew Rockwell, the officers of Ron Paul & Associates included Paul’s wife Carol, Paul’s daughter Lori Pyeatt,”
Why didn’t his daughter or wife tell Ron about what was being printed in his name? Do they hate Ron? Or are they also Racists?
“The publishing operation was lucrative. A tax document from June 1993—wrapping up the year in which the Political Report had published the “welfare checks” comment on the L.A. riots—reported an annual income of $940,000 for Ron Paul & Associates, listing four employees in Texas (Paul’s family and Rockwell) and seven more employees around the country.”
My bold now we have a motive! CASH! silly me its freakin obvious! Has Ron and his family returned any of the tainted money? I would if I were not a racist.
As far as choosing between Ron and Obama goes which is what some of Ron’s supporters have been asking people at the Lake recently goes what part of choosing the lesser of two evils is still EVIL don’t they get?
I am not conceding that Ron is less evil than Obama given his racism I think if given the opportunity then Ron if elected President would be more evil.
The Greatest trick the Devil pulled off is convincing the world that he does not exist Ron is not the devil he wishes! The devil would be insulted by the comparison of such obvious attempts to paint over Ron’s *cough* small problem.
