ATTENTION RON PAUL SUPPORTERS! I give you…THE PAULBOMB!(r/politics)
>build a fence along the US-Mexico border
>and abolish the Federal Reserve
You say, as if this is a secret part of his platform and as if he didn’t write a book about it. Give me a few reasons to keep the Federal Reserve Bank, and maybe I’ll consider that a negative on his platform.
>put America back on the gold standard.
Technically false. He does believe in the gold standard, but his position is really to legalize competing currencies to the Federal Reserve note, like gold and silver (which is the Constitutional position). He wants to overturn Nixon’s executive order, which would legalize gold as a currency for those who wanted to use it, but would not “put us back on the gold standard” overnight.
>he’s against gay marriage
No, he isn’t. He has his own views on what marriage means, but he has no will or intent to impose those views on any others.
>is STILL making racist remarks
You say, citing an article from 2006 with no racist quotes, comments, or remarks in it. Show me a current or even old video of Ron Paul saying something racist and derogatory. Show me something that refutes this and I’ll believe you.
>believes in New World Order conspiracy theories
You say, as if it isn’t becoming increasingly obvious as the days pass that the world is succumbing to the economic control of a few. It doesn’t take conspiracy theory to pay attention to the situation with the collapsing Euro after the warnings of those who condemned the European ruling class for attempting to create a European state, or to pay attention to the Trilateral Commission, or the CFR, or to the fact that the President just signed a bill allowing indefinite detention of US citizens, the Occupy movements being met with excessive force for going up against the entanglement of the banksters and the bureaucrats. In fact, anyone who doesn’t believe to an extent that there is a blatant conspiracy to concentrate power and wealth out of the hands of the many and into the hands of the few has their head buried in the sand and is in no way prepared for the coming crises that we as a nation and a world face in the coming years.
