Personally, I think that is their intentions regardless.

They know they are backing a spoiler and they are praying Gore doesn't run and even the playing field.

Oh, some of them probably care. But none of them are fool enough to want to leave a comfortable, nay opulent by my (considerably above minimum wage, even as a retiree) standards, lifestyle for what that implies. I wouldn't, myself.

If the election comes down to a three way between two pro-abortion, pro- big government, anti-gun liberals, and a pro-life, vehemently pro-gun, anti-big goverment conservative "spoiler", you're damned right I'm going to vote my conscience.

I reckon you will wrestle with your conscience... and "win".

I'm not exactly sure what your rant was trying to say, it was slightly incoherent. But I do know that the working poor earn well above minimum wage. Minimum wage is for those just entering the work force; teenagers.
If you are 30 years old and you are on minimum wage, sorry. That's pretty pathetic actually.

Ron Paul has never voted to raise taxes.
Ron Paul has never voted to raise Congressional pay.
Ron Paul does not take part in the lucrative Congressional pension plan.
As an obstetrician, Ron Paul never accepted Medicaid.
Ron Paul's children did not take government-subsidized student loans for college.

You know why all these lesser-of-two-evils Republicans on this forum and the so-called "conservative" politicians and talking heads despise Ron Paul? Because for 30 years he has quietly and steadfastly practiced the principles they preach. In walk as well as talk, he is a damning rebuke to their hypocrisy. The anger and venom his gentle consistency provokes from people who call themselves conservatives both amuses and saddens me.

Probably because he is a reflection of what the party used to be and they know it. They know their party has become the party of big government and that their party has adopted the democrat's foreign policy of intervention.

Did you know that are you are pointing out that Ron Paul is as much or more the elitist that most Dems and Republicans are?

You are saying that Ron Paul as a doctor and "humanitarian" could give a crap less about the needs of poor and disadvantaged people who have had to use Medicaid?

He could care less about the working poor who are under insured.

If you are not saying it directly you certainly have illustrated it.

Ron Paul is one of those "cash is king" kind of doctors who made so much money that his kids were INELIGIBLE for federal student loans.

This is not to say they wouldn't have used them if they could.

There is a huge gap between being eligible and being ineligible and the very statement (regarding the kids who did not use federal aid) takes credibility away from the man.

I am just as certain that Dr. Paul continued to claim them as dependents for as long as he could in his federal taxes.

I am sure that he let no deduction pass by him.


Ron Paul is certainly not a federalist.

Ron Paul is the lukewarm combination of liberal and conservative that some people give catchy descriptions for like "progressive".

I suppose "progressive" is what todays libertarians label themselves as.

It sounds so much better to call yourself "progressive" when what you really are is "socialist".

I will call it as I see it and say that Ron Paul is the same as any other politician running for office.

He is a man of wealth and self interest with a sales pitch.

If you are dumb enough to swallow his sales pitch and "anti establishment" convictions that he may have had in the past when he was on the outside looking in....

You should watch some infomercials from Jack LaLane and Ronco.

Let us know what you buy.

From Wikipedia...

Paul was born in Green Tree, Pennsylvania, to Margaret "Peggy" Paul (née Dumont)[14] and Howard Caspar Paul,[15] son of a German immigrant.[16] He was the third of five sons born during seven years in the Great Depression. His family owned a dairy farm in the small town, which lies just outside of Pittsburgh. Paul's father had an eighth-grade education and was co-owner of Green Tree Dairy, along with his brothers Lewis and Arthur. Paul began working at his father's dairy at age five. Later he delivered newspapers, worked in a drugstore, and became a milkman when he was old enough to drive.[17] One of the customers on his milk route was baseball legend Honus Wagner.[18]

He graduated from Dormont High School in Dormont, Pennsylvania, in 1953 with honors. He excelled in track and field,[19] winning the Pennsylvania state championship in the 220-yard dash and coming in second in the 440-yard dash as a junior. He also was on the wrestling team, played football and baseball, and was president of the student council.[17][18]

Paul paid for his first year at Gettysburg College with saved newspaper-delivery, lemonade-sale, and lawn-mowing money. Paul delivered mail and laundry on the side while in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania; for one year, he managed the college coffee shop.

...

Two years after leaving medical school and moving to Surfside Beach, Texas, Paul worked in a church hospital's emergency room in San Antonio for a wage of $3 per hour ($18 in 2007 dollars).

Wow, what a pampered, privileged elitist! Born with a silver spoon in his mouth! :rolleyes: Ret_Marine, what is it in your background that makes you resent a self-made success? Jealousy?

Paul supported his children during their undergraduate and medical school years, preventing their participation in the federal student loan program because the program was taxpayer-subsidized. He has not signed up for a Congressional pension for the same reason.

Hmmm... didn't want his kids on the taxpayer dole, doesn't want to take part in the Congressional pension plan, and that somehow makes him an ivory-tower elitist?

Again, why do you resent a self-made man who proved he could prosper in the free market, providing services people voluntarily pay for, without leaning on government, and who managed this BEFORE he ever ran for Congress?

Remember when congressmen actually had JOBS to return to when Congress wasn't in session? Paul has complained that House rules PREVENT him from going back to his district to practice medicine when Congress isn't in session (delivering babies is somehow a conflict of interest, I guess).

D.T., Did you fall and bump your head again?

Wikipedia is not a source for information, it is a source for entertainment.

(It is an online encyclopedia that can be altered by it's readership.)

It is full of inaccuracies and silliness, which may explain why you like it so much.

For what it is worth it lacks the detail Ron Paul gave in a recent PBS interview that I watched late last week.


Furthermore,

Having come from humble beginnings does not make a person any less or more an elitist once they have become successful.

Being an elitist is an active choice to disenfranchise the people of lesser class.

You have illustrated exactly how he has done this.

Since you have tried to twist it around by adding a non argument, I feel compelled to bring you back to the questions you refuse to answer.

So here you go, a repeat just for you:

As an obstetrician, Ron Paul never accepted Medicaid.
Ron Paul's children did not take government-subsidized student loans for college.

You should go work for Hillary's campaign. You have that Marxist have/have-not rhetoric down pat.


Again, what does a "conservative" like yourself find so evil about a successful, self-made man who didn't take part in unconstitutional government programs? Did you grow up in Section 8 housing or something?

Are you afraid of the questions?

These questions are designed to reach you at your level.

Do you need a box of crayons and some construction paper to bring it down to your emotional reaction level?

Buddy your 20 yrs old. That means your not an adult, your still a teen as well. Truefully, your not an adult until 21. You can't buy beer yet. So your pathetic for trying to rank yourself.

I believe teenager is 13-19, hence the term -"teen" at the end of those numbers.
