There are several lessons we can learn from the Iowa caucus results:
- Romney and Santorum finished within 0.1% of each other. Perhaps the race was so close because Romney is perceived as flip-flopping on homosexuality, and Santorum was clear in his position that homosexuality is the same a bestiality.
- Perhaps not many Iowans have Googled “Santorum”.
- There is a total absence of evidence that anyone in Iowa went rogue and voted for Palin. Jon Huntsman was reported to have earned 1% of the votes, Herman Cain received “58 wasted votes”, and 135 people showed up for the caucus and voted that they had “no preference”. Given this level of detail in the reporting of the results, we can assume if anyone had “gone rogue,” we would have heard about it.
- There was a record turn out of 122,255 voters this year as compared to 119,000 last year. This might be an indication that the eight Republican candidates who received votes resulted in confusion of the Republican voters in Iowa. The fact that the “winner” received less than 25% of the votes would be a clear indication that none of the Republican candidates were sufficiently inspiring to earn a significant majority of the votes.
- Romney hasn’t held elected office since 2006 when he announced that he would not run for re-election. Due to growing dissatisfaction in the Republican Party it was anticipated that if Romney ran for re-election he would lose. In the last year of his gubernatorial term he spent all or part of 212 days out of state, laying the ground work for a presidential campaign in 2008, which he lost. Rick Santorum lost his bid for re-election to the Senate in 2006 in Pennsylvania and hasn’t held elected office since then. Although currently a Congressman, Ron Paul has announced he will not run for re-election, and he lost his race for a Senate seat. Paul ran for President in 1988 and 2008, and lost both times. He would be 77 years old by the election of 2012, and would be 81 by the end of his first term as President if he won in 2012. Newt Gingrich was a Congressman but in 1999 he was charged with 84 ethics violations, and special counsel, James Cole, found that Gingrich violated federal tax law, lied to the ethics panel, and Gingrich resigned as Speaker of the House and from elected office in 1998. Thus Newt has not held elected office for over 10 years.
Hence, the top four candidates for the Republican nomination for the office of the President are losers. Two have lost in previous attempts to become President. Santorum lost his attempt at re-election for the Senate, and Gingrich quit his position as Congressman and Speaker of the House. Perhaps Stephen Bannon in 2012 will make a sequel to the “Undefeated,” featuring these four losers.
Both Republicans and Democrats seem to agree that Ron Paul is quite dangerous. Republicans think he’s dangerous, because he is unelectable, but capable of splitting the vote. Democrats think he is dangerous because people don’t understand the extent of his libertarian ideas. Both agree that if he were elected it would be the end of the United States of America as we know it. Here are just a few points everyone should know about this bigoted, racist, homophobe:
1. He wants to legalize pot.
2. He advocates shutting down the Federal Reserve.
3. He believes the federal government has no authority to outlaw abortion.
4. He believes it is none of our business if Iran has nuclear weapons.
5. He believes the government has no right to print money, unless it is backed by gold.
6. In response to the 1992 riots in L.A. his publication said “Order was only restored in L.A. when it came time for the blacks to collect their welfare checks three days after rioting began.”
7. He opposes ANY U.S. military involvement overseas. He would bring home ALL troops from ALL U.S. bases.
The Government and politicians have failed this country, but it is not an excuse to elect someone so dangerous to our entire way of life.
We knew that Ron Paul doesn’t like Blacks, Jews, and Homosexuals. You can add overweight people.
CBS reports today that Ron Paul is leading in the Iowa polls just days before the Iowa Caucuses. Eric Dondero is a former staffer of Ron Paul, so he is not some liberal blogger or member of the “lame-stream media”. He was a Republican who worked for Ron Paul. If there were any credible source of information, it would be a Republican who worked for Ron Paul, and was originally supporting him.
–Paul is anti-Israel. “His view is that Israel is more trouble than it is worth, specifically to theAmericataxpayer. He sides with the Palestinians, and supports their calls for the abolishment of the Jewish state, and the return of Israel, all of it, to the Arabs.”
–”He is not all bigoted towards homosexuals. He supports their rights to do whatever they please in their private lives. He is however, personally uncomfortable around homosexuals” and refused to use a bathroom in a gay supporter’s home.
–”Ron Paul was opposed to the War inAfghanistan, and to any military reaction to the attacks of 9/11.” He planned to vote against the invasion despite threats of staff resignations and a constituent uproar, Dondero says; he changed his mind at the last minute.
“If Ron Paul should be slammed for anything, it’s not some silly remarks he’s made in the past in his Newsletters. It’s over his unbelievably outrageous views on foreign policy,Israel, and national security for the United States. His near No vote onAfghanistan. That is the big scandal,”
Ron Paul has disavowed the bigoted statements he has published in the past, suggesting that he didn’t know who wrote the articles that were published in his publications. Yet Eric Dondero is not someone who worked for Ron Paul 10 years ago. Now we have credible proof that Paul is a bigot. He was 10 years ago and is today. He is a contender for the President of theUnited States. We should all be horrified!
Some surveys show Ron Paul as the GOP frontrunner in Iowa. At least one survey shows:
Paul – 23%
Romney – 20%
Gingrich – 14%
The Iowa caucus occurs on January 3rd. In just 11 days we will know who the front runner is in the GOP primary in the all-important Iowa caucuses. The prospect of a Ron Paul victory is causing “shocks and seizures” within the “GOP establishment, with good reason.” “For many in the GOP and Tea Party movements, Ron Paul is a crank; the crazy uncle of the right, the quack eccentric geezer with the ability to put a wrench in the system. And those are just some of the nicer expressions some conservatives have used to describe him.”
It is hard to imagine that the year is 2011, we have a Black President. Over a century has passed since the Plessy v. Ferguson decision determining that “separate but equal” was permissible. We have seen 10 different US Supreme Court cases since then which changed the law in America to recognize the importance of equal treatment of all races. We have seen two Black Justices appointed to the Supreme Court, the first being Thurgood Marshall in 1967.
However the front runner is Ron Paul who would be 77 years old at his inauguration and he is the worst bigot of all. He is older than John McCain. Ron Paul was 33 years old when Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in 1968. However in the 1990′s Ron Paul published materials that included these quotes:
“Given the inefficiencies of what DC laughingly calls the criminal justice system, I think we can safely assume that 95 percent of the black males in that city are semi-criminal or entirely criminal.”
“We are constantly told that it is evil to be afraid of black men, it is hardly irrational.”
After the Los Angeles riots, one article in a newsletter claimed, “Order was only restored in L.A. when it came time for the blacks to pick up their welfare checks.”
One referred to Martin Luther King Jr. as “the world-class philanderer who beat up his paramours” and who “seduced underage girls and boys.”
Another referred to Barbara Jordan, a civil rights activist and congresswoman as “Barbara Morondon,” the “archetypical half-educated victimologist.”
When asked about these racist remarks, Mr. Paul indicated he was tired of being “pestered” about them. While it is unclear who wrote these words, it is clear that Paul published them, and made one Million Dollars off of the publication of these incendiary remarks. Ron Paul seems to feel that if it could be shown that he didn’t personally write the remarks they should not be attributed to him. At the outset it hasn’t been shown who wrote the remarks. However publishing them, and thus promoting these racially charged attitudes, is a much worse crime. By publishing these remarks, Ron Paul embraced these views and gave them legitimacy. Instead of condemnation of anyone holding such attitudes, Ron Paul gave them a megaphone and amplified them. If this is the future of the GOP, the Republican Party has no future. If Ron Paul is the “flavor of the week,” it is a disgusting flavor and one that most Americans would find repulsive.
If you need a good laugh today, watch Ron Paul on Jay Leno comment about other Republicans.
