Ron Paul the hero of 2008?
Thursday, May 17, 2007 by Dave Winer.
Of course the Republicans are trying to tar and feather Rep Ron Paul, spin what he says to make it sound like he's a nut.
The things he's saying are surely what the politicos in Washington say when the cameras aren't on. We need more of that. Poor McCain, I can imagine at one point he might have said these things. But he's too sold out now to have any chance of winning if he did. His career would be over. But, you gotta wonder why he doesn't go ahead, because his career is totally over anyway, and the thought of more people dying, Americans and Iraqis, so he can hold on to a sliver of hope that he might win an election someday, suggests that he never really had any morals, he was just playing someone with them, in the hope of getting elected.
I'd like to shake Ron Paul's hand someday. I might even work for the guy, how about that! I honestly don't give a damn if the Republicans win or the Democrats -- I'd just like to see us, as a country, start using our brains, and start caring about not just ourselves but the poor schnooks who are dying. A little Golden Rule would help us feel okay about all the blessings we have.
As Maude used to say, and I think this every time I hear one of these guys like Blitzer or McCain (they're all the same) lie on TV -- God'll get you for that Walter. Well God won't only be getting Wolfe and John, he'll be getting you and me, if we stand around and don't do anything and let the bullshit continue.
