As to the continuous comments that if we don't support Ron Paul, then the Republic is dead, I beg to differ.  I spent a few hours tonight chatting one-on-one with some fellow Tea Partiers @ our monthly meeting, round-table informal and friendly.  Hard-core RP supporters.  On the question of our "interventionist" policies RP supporters are so hard-headed about, I ask a simple question: Was it interventionist policies that caused us to initiate a missle-defense system to neuter the threat of Russian and Chinese aggression in Poland and Eastern Europe...that Obama withdrew?  Why were the Eastern Europeans upset that the Kenyan reneged and left them holding their ass in their hands?  Did we FORCE it on them?  NO.  Working off of Reagan's "peace-through-strength" philosophy has been extremely beneficial for many in this world, and many nations in this world look to the ONLY beacon of hope that will sacrifice it's own blood and treasure to PROTECT THOSE WHO ARE UNABLE TO PROTECT THEMSELVES FROM TYRANNY AND DESPOTISM.  Do we need to be the world's policeman, many RP supporters ask rhetorically?  Does defending yourself and your friends and neighbors make you some vicious policeman?  RP's isolationist tendencies will get us killed, and a whole lot of other people as well, because he and his supporters just cannot imagine that just "being nice" and ignoring an ugly reality  is going to get you gutted when you're not looking.  ObamabinBiden is one of those, although for reasons completely unrelated to "isolationism."  There is good and evil in this world, and there is a huge preponderance of EVIL that would love to see freedom smudged out completely.  

I will not get into all of my reasons as to why I think Ron Paul is dangerous, but here are a few of the most prominent besides that just mentioned:  1) He has the appearance of an old, goofy looking/sounding crank, with the baggage of his racist newsletter he once published, among other things;  2)  There is no way he will be able to beat Barack Obama and his criminal machine, for a variety of reasons, one being his temperment;  3) He, just like every single other Constitutional officer and elected representative, have completely abrogated his/their Article 6 Sec. 3 Constitutional Oaths to uphold the Constitution.  Read it.  By the abject failure to call to task Obama, Holder, the entire DOJ, all of Obama's appointees and all of Obama's CRIMINAL activities and violations of the Constitution & Bill of Rights they have made themselves complicit, by misprison of felony and more, in all the criminal and un-Constitutional actions perpetrated on their watch, under their noses, and aided and abetted Treason and High Crimes and Misdemeanors.  

So James, you may be asking...who the hell do you support then?

That's a damn good question, glad you asked.  At this point, it's too early for me to say, which is why my favorite shirt has emblazoned across the front "POLITICALLY UNREPRESENTED."  And here's my thinking about all of this:  It is absolutely critical that Obama/Biden be removed at the STATE LEVEL from the ballot.  INELIGIBLE must be forced to the surface by legislative initiatives in every state possible by forcing him and every single candidate to PRODUCE VALID DOCUMENTATION AS TO ARTICLE 2 ELIGIBILITY.  Here in Georgia there are already a few efforts by state reps underway to put this into effect...and it must be accomplished at the legislative level and enforced upon each states' ELECTORS.  This is the only hope we have...I do not see any other.  Our reps at the Federal level are not listening, have not been listening, and WILL NOT take any action that is required of them and demanded by we the people and the Rule of Law.  

Obamabinbiden and the international elite that have been behind this criminal takeover in '08 are way ahead of us.  The "elections" of '12 have already been rigged.  ACORN was never taken down...they exploded into dozens more new groups flying under the radar.  Holder and the DOJ are doing everything possible to allow all the dead & made-up folks of 2008 to be able to vote again in bigger numbers with this ill-concealed effort to sue states that are initiating voter-ID laws.  You know, don't you, that you can't even get welfare without valid ID?  So just who do you think this "initiative" is geared towards?  If it rhymes with "illegal alien" you got it right.

The huge illegal foreign contributions and other illegal donations of '08 to Obamabinbiden have yet to be addressed by the Federal Election Commission...I am SHOCKED.  They are still "under investigation."   It will be a mere pittance compared to 2012.    

So I am not so much concerned with the riff-raff running on the GOP ticket right now, as they so far have completely refused to address the elephant in the room, and show no signs whatsoever of doing so.  This must be done at the state level, where it should originate anyway, and the sovereignty of the states and the people of the states must be VIGOROUSLY re-asserted, our Rule of Law and strict adherence to the Constitution & Bill of Rights AND the Declaration of Independence RECLAIMED AND ENFORCED, as they are all inextricably intertwined, along with the future of our children, grandchildren, and the longest-surviving Republic mankind has ever known.

STAY TUNED...

Joe-At the risk of getting into a pissing contest with someone I would rather be working with to right the "ship of state", as it were, the documents (plural) have been out there.  I stand by my assertions that if it had my name on it, and my signature, I'd better be reading it.  If NOT, then that is a failure tantamount to "I saw the bill but didn't read it...and then I voted on it."  Maybe it's possible that Fox News and all the fact-checkers just foto-shopped it.  Not likely, as RP has not done a very good job of de-bunking it.   Now it is quite obvious to me that the only reason we are spread so thin militarily is because our MILITARY HAS BEEN STRIPPED DOWN.  What we are debating here is more than semantics.  "Countries that hate us" is not entirely accurate when you're talking about countries that we have enduring relationships with.  I understand and agree with a lot of RP's Constitutional proclivities, but they are nothing more than proclivities.  He has taken the adage of Madison to "avoid all entanglements with Europe" past the point that Madison was making.  Let me just cut to the chase here...I'll reassert the point that John Adams made in 1775 in a letter he wrote to his wife Abigail.  Adams was one of the few "radicals" that were for complete independence from King George; the "moderates" were for some form of continuing subjugation from Britain, and this is so prescient to our troubles today that it is breathtaking-remember that we are talking about a form of tyranny in that day, compared to a form of tyranny now in OUR day, one from Britain then, and from our own out-of-control Federal government NOW: "We shall be convinced that the Cancer is too deeply rooted and too far spread to be cured by anything short of cutting it out entirely."  He continued with this observation, that "the moderates are waiting for a messiah that will never come."

So Joe, in all honesty, I cannot support Ron Paul, or any of the others at this point, because they are all "moderates," and I am a "radical."  I support no party.  I support no "candidate" because there does not exist one single true patriot to the cause of Liberty.  They are all part of the same dysfunctional system...and the entire cancer needs to be removed.  Now, the next question I'm sure I will be asked would run along the lines of "but would you vote for so&so or for Obama, or would you sit out the election?"  Well, I won't be sitting anything out, I can assure you of that.  :)  We need to be working towards the goal of ridding this country of the national nightmare we've been forced to endure BEFORE THE ELECTIONS EVER OCCUR.  I just don't know how to make it any more clear than that...you are wasting your time supporting RP-Bachman-Santorum-Romney-Gingrich-WHOTHEHELLEVER!   THIS IS ALL A DISTRACTION!!!

Joe Hart; Thanks for the reply, but I'm nobody's parrot.  You have slightly distorted the facts...it was not just ONE 27 year old document.  And, if it were my publication, I don't care if it were signed by auto-pen, me or my PARROT I would damn sure have read it and either accepted it for publication or rejected it and said START OVER.  Now, the power to declare war rests with the Congress.  My views on foreign policy differ from Paul's, obviously.  I didn't say I was "afraid" of Ron Paul, I said I was afraid of his POLICIES, which are isolationist in a world far removed from the days of 1787, and which there is ample resonance in our Constitution to address.  I never said he was dangerous because he wants to defend our country...although I find that hard to do if his intention to dismantle the military were allowed to go forward in any manner.  Now, if you will go back and re-read my post, you will find out in the last few paragraphs WHAT I REALLY DO WANT, and HOW I BELIEVE IT CAN ONLY BE DONE.  This has to be done beyond the fog of candidate/partisan zeal.  Excuse me, I must go feed my PARROT...

ALERT ALERT

Trump National Diversity Coalition's Bruce LeVell: President’s Support Among Blacks, Hispanics Will ‘More Than Double’ In 2020

Bruce LeVell, the National Diversity Coalition for Trump executive director, said on Sunday evening he predicts President Donald Trump will win even higher levels of support in the black and Hispanic communities in 2020 than he did in 2016.

“Pastor Darrell Scott is the CEO, we started this back in 2015,” LeVell said on Breitbart News Sunday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel on Sunday evening about the National Diversity Coalition for Trump. “It is the largest diversity coalition platform in history for a Republican candidate, not to mention a sitting president, and there are millions of guests that sign on and sign up that are part of this. If you look on the website, you see African Americans for Trump, Haitian Americans for Trump, Korean Americans for Trump, Chinese Americans for Trump, Hispanic Americans for Trump–all very large. They all stand in one agreement that they believe in this great president and that he is here for all and wants everyone to be successful. It’s pretty flattering, honestly, to be a part of this. It just totally debunks everything that they try to make him out to be–a racist, which he’s not. The numbers prove that he’s not. You can see where he’s rising in terms of the Hispanic vote, and the African American vote. It’s just really going to be mind-boggling on the next go-around. I guarantee it. It’s going to more than double because people are happy; they’re working.”

LeVell, when asked for his rationale on why he thinks Trump’s support in 2020 among blacks and Hispanics will more than double, attributed it to the results President Trump has gotten for those communities.

“Sometimes you have to speak things into existence,” LeVell said. “The president said, ‘What do you have to lose?’ That challenge, especially in the underserved communities, well, yeah, what do we have to lose? We tried it this way for 30 or 40 years. Some of these cities and municipalities were under Democrat rule, as you might say, for many years, and then you say, ‘You know what? Let’s make the ask.’ You know, the president made the ask. Sometimes, you just have to ask, ‘Hey, what do you got to lose? Try this.’ Let’s try one of the biggest, strongest bills that he’s signed, that was so beneficial, called the Opportunity Zones. This bill right here alone is bringing a lifeline to some of these underserved communities and is projected to bring in over hundreds of billions of dollars in these underserved communities, which are predominantly African American communities. For example, in Atlanta, there are minority business contractors teaming up with other business contractors building a hotel in an Opportunity Zone. This community has just been blighted for God knows how long. These are the things that people are starting to see–the light at the end of the tunnel. Here’s a businessman that understands what I call a balance sheet, a P & L sheet of profit and loss. The president wants to see the country profitable, not losses. So that’s what he does. He says, ‘Okay, where can we improve? What can we do?’”

He continued, “Like I said earlier, I think the Opportunity Zones is a sleeper; it has so many moving parts to it where you can sell a piece of property for $2 million and instead of paying that very high capital gains [tax] you can identify those funds over the zone, and then, you can build another little hotel or a shopping center for economic empowerment for that community. So there’s so many initiatives out there for people of color, like myself, who see opportunities. You know, how about this? You live in a black community under the Trump administration, you walk down the street and say, ‘Wow, 98 percent who live in the community are African American,’ and you say, ‘Why don’t you build that grocery store? Why don’t you build that gas station?’ Wow, you’re right. I can. The programs that are out there, like in the Small Business Administration, you get as little as five or ten percent down, and they can maturize it to 30 years, and if you’re a veteran, they waive the fees. There are so many tools out there, and you saw the president when he adjusted Dodd-Frank last year; that was a terrible, terrible deal they did in 2009 and 2010 that literally almost just choked and killed the business community because of the Dodd-Frank, going in there and regulating these small community banks, which were life support for these small communities especially in the African American community, where he readjusted that last year and made it work. These are the things this president understands that as a businessman he can bring his lifelong talents to the White House and can help America. The biggest thing about this is, remember, the president is not beholden to any special interest group; this is a very key part of this conversation right here because he can go in there and govern without having to worry about paying back favors.”

According to NBC News analysis in the immediate aftermath of the 2016 election, Trump actually outperformed now-Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT)–then the former governor of Massachusetts–in the 2012 election when it came to both the black and Hispanic communities.

“Trump claimed 29 percent of the Hispanic vote on Tuesday, compared to Romney’s 27 percent in 2012,” NBC News wrote. “With blacks, exit polls show Trump claimed 8 percent of the vote to the previous Republican nominee’s 6 percent.”

If Trump is able to double support in the black and Hispanic communities in 2020, as LeVell predicts he will, no Democrat will stand even close to a chance of defeating him; the margins they would need for victories in a number of states would be significantly eroded. Perhaps that is why the Democrats are now attempting to paint Trump as a racist amid his battle with the so-called “Squad” of socialist Reps. Alexandria Ocasi0-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI). The new faces of the Democrat Party, the “Squad,” in other words, is worried they may lose the election in 2020 if LeVell and other Trump backers are right. But the scurrilous accusations of racism for quick political gains, which have also been leveled at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and former Vice President Joe Biden in recent weeks, LeVell warns, may undermine the ability to stand up to actual racism where it exists.

“At first, it was kind of bizarre,” LeVell, who knows Trump well and has known him prior to his run for president, said of the false racism accusations. “Now, it’s just plainly un-American. It’s so anti-patriotic. You know, the interesting thing about it for me as a black conservative or Republican–I like to define myself as a Frederick Douglass Republican–most of the name-calling comes from people who actually look like me, 90 percent of it. It’s bizarre, and it’s because our thinking process is not lining up with theirs. It’s the only playbook they have, like I said earlier, which is, ‘Let’s just use the race card.’

LeVell went on to say, “Getting back to the president, I’ve been around him–I was just with him at the rally–in very intimate settings, behind the scenes at the rally, and you’re right: I’ve traveled with him, been on the plane with him. I’ve been in private meetings with him. I’ve talked with him, and you know–let me tell you something: I’m 55 years old, I’ve lived my whole life in the South, and I’m world-traveled. Let me tell you: I know racism when I see it. This man is nowhere near being a racist. It’s so sad because it does such a disservice to this great nation that they would throw that name and throw those words around. I mean, you have people calling Biden racist. They’re calling Pelosi racist. They’re calling the dog-catcher racist because he impounded the black dog instead of the white dog. Come on. What’s next? You know, it’s kind of sad because it’s pretty much watered down things that are legitimate, to where people are just going to get so numb with it, and people are just being like, ‘Wow, are you serious?’”
