In an interview on Fox News, Dick Morris referred to Ron Paul as a “nut.” Now, I know that Morris tends to hang with corrupt politicians, like the Clintons and the Bushes, and so on. And, like most statists, Morris loves the State and supports expanding its power and reach into our lives and overseas onto foreign lands. But I think it is “nuts” to label a “nut” someone such as Dr. Paul who advocates honest money that isn’t printed from nothing and has no value, who thinks rationally on the issues and doesn’t support policies based solely on reactionary knee-jerk emotions (such as the Patriot Act, Iraq, and now Iran, etc.), and who believes strongly in the rights of the individual to freedom of association and contract and private property rights.
In the interview, Dick Morris described the debate in question, and accused CNN of over-emphasizing Ron Paul, including with a split screen of Romney answering a question alongside Dr. Paul’s visible reaction, as though CNN constantly did that. But there were several split-screen instances in which Ron Paul was answering a question, and we see Newt Gingrich’s reaction, as well as Rick Sanitorium. If Morris perceived CNN as over-emphasizing Paul, then Morris, like most politicians and their flunkies, is exhibiting signs of paranoia, in my opinion.
So, Morris, who thinks Ron Paul is a “nut,” is concerned that the front-runners weren’t given enough attention in that debate. The people haven’t heard enough of Willard Romney, Herman
Munster Cain, or Newt Gingrich — we want to hear more of these people, their ignorance and buffoonery and their flip-flops!
Okay, let’s start with one of the candidates that Morris would prefer to vote for, rather than the “nut,” Ron Paul — Willard Romney. Here is Romney greeting voters, and, being asked by a disabled medical marijuana patient in a wheelchair whether or not he, Romney, would have the patient and his doctor arrested if the doctor gave the patient marijuana for medical purposes. Note Romney’s fixed forced smile throughout and finally snubbing the patient. Would Romney have them arrested? Knowing Romney, he probably would.
I can’t believe that someone as supposedly intelligent and informed as Romney (and those other statist Republican candidates) could support the continuation of the War on Drugs, unless they were just dumb, uninformed of the history of Prohibition and the violent crime it wrought, or just plain “on the take.” It is a totally irrational policy that no one in his right mind could possibly support.
Dick Morris called Ron Paul “horrific” for wanting to end the War on Drugs. Morris said in an interview, “We should drug test every high school student … We should drug test everybody that gets a student loan. Anybody that’s using drugs should not get a government student loan.”
How about drug testing political candidates and their campaign strategists and pollsters? How about drug- and alcohol-testing everyone in America? And for what?
What’s the point of all this? So the government can tell us that it owns our bodies and order us not to put something into our own bodies? Because Republicans and conservatives do not like the idea of an individual being responsible for the consequences of one’s actions? Because we want the police to have more and more power to break into people’s homes, steal their property, terrorize the population, and engage in gun-running to the drug-lords in Mexico who wouldn’t be in that business were it not for the the U.S. government’s War on Drugs? And Morris wants to call Ron Paul a “nut”?
What about prescription drugs? Should we include that, too? How many deaths, car crashes and accidental (or on-purpose) overdoses have been caused by prescription drug use or abuse?
Speaking of prescription drugs, recently I made a reference to the “mentally unstable” Michele Bachmann, another Republican candidate that Dick Morris would support for president above Ron Paul. My reference was based on this article at the Daily Caller. It appears that stressful situations, such as the departure of a major Bachmann staff spokesperson, have caused sudden, severe “debilitating medical episodes,” in which Bachmann must be placed in the hospital to recover. According to the article, “These episodes, say witnesses, occur once a week on average and can ‘incapacitate’ her for days at time. On at least three occasions, Bachmann has landed in the hospital as a result.
“’She has terrible migraine headaches. And they put her out of commission for a day or more at a time. They come out of nowhere, and they’re unpredictable,’ says an adviser to Bachmann who was involved in her 2010 congressional campaign. ‘They level her…’”
But it’s not just the difficulty in dealing with stress with Michele Bachmann, it’s her apparent overuse of prescription drugs. The article states that, “Bachmann’s congressional staff is ‘constantly’ in contact with her doctors to tweak the types and amounts of medicine she is taking.” It’s not just one prescription drug, it’s several ones. Not good.
But Dick Morris, who thinks Ron Paul is a “nut,” wants to drug-test students! And without probable cause or any suspicion that anyone has done anything wrong, of course. Typical statist, who believes in the guilty-until-proven-innocent fascism with which Bush and Obama have ruined America. Morris would still support Bachmann for president above Ron Paul.
And here is Bachmann, showing how important America is to her, but not as important as Israel, apparently. Bachmann, like many Americans, has the blind support for Israel, no matter what the Israeli government and military do to Palestinians (that most Americans don’t even know about because the propagandists in the government and their media stenographers make sure that the American people don’t know what’s going on there), and based mainly on the Bible (but not the Declaration of Independence or the Bill of Rights). “Israel First,” Congresswoman Bachmann:
While Dick Morris thinks that Ron Paul is a “nut,” it seems that Morris would also support Herman
Munster Cain before he would support Paul. Herman Cain wants to keep the income tax and corporate taxes, AND add a national consumption tax. Ron Paul’s answer to “9-9-9″ is “0-0-0,” because, rightly, Paul recognizes that the income tax and corporate taxes are theft, pure and simple. It is immoral to covet your neighbors’ wealth and property, and it is immoral to force someone to do extra labor to serve the government. And sales taxes are regressive — they hurt the poor the most. “9-9-9″ is Nuts-Nuts-Nuts!
But sensible, reasonable and rational, and honest and moral Ron Paul is the “nut.”
And the one that Dick Morris seems to like the most — although one couldn’t possibly figure out why — Newt Gingrich, was just endorsed by the Manchester Union Leader. Now THAT’S “nuts”!
Here is some more Romney. Some people actually believe that, because of his “business” experience, he would be a good president. Hmmm. He sure did produce a lot for consumers of some sort over there at Bain, he sure contributed to society while there. And he sure put a good “business sense” into his time as governor.
Here is Romney, who isn’t a “nut,” acting like a street performer, or like someone overdosing on Prozak. But like Ronald Reagan, if nothing else, Romney is a good actor:
Here’s Romney, who pretends to be “conservative” (barf!), at the signing of his socialist and fascist, budget-busting RomneyCare with his good friend, Ted Kennedy:
But Ron Paul is a “nut.” Dick Morris would support these people, these warmongering socialists, flip-floppers and degenerates before ever supporting the one who actually believes in sound policies, and, most of all, who wants to “legalize freedom.” The others — the real nuts — want to take more and more freedom away, and they support the most un-American socialist police state! But Ron Paul is the “nut.”
And why did I spend my Sunday afternoon doing this post? Maybe I’m nuts, too.
