Ron Paul: Election shows U.S. 'far gone'
The Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan

Original Article

Posted By:Envirodude, 11/9/2012 7:32:24 AM

Rep. Ron Paul, whose maverick presidential bids shook the GOP, said in the wake of this week's elections that the country has already veered over the fiscal cliff and he sees no chance of righting ship in a country where too many people are dependent on government. "We're so far gone. We're over the cliff," the Texas Republican told Bloomberg Television's "In the Loop" program. "We cannot get enough people in Congress in the next 5-10 years who will do wise things. (Snip) Mr. Paul, who is retiring after 12 terms in the House

I like Ron Paul, however, had he endorsed Gov Romney, as got his folks out to vote, the results could have been different.

Would he have said the same thing if Romney were elected? On election day I heard him say that there was no difference between the two candiates. No sane person can believe that.

Just what are all of the Ron Paul supporters going to do now? By failing to vote, they have helped destroy our country. They are no different than the Obamabots. Their loyalty to this idiot cost us the election.

The country is neither gone nor far gone. We survived the FDR years and we'll survive this. We are more resilient than we credit ourselves. A lot of the youngsters who voted in Obama have yet to feel his socialist lash. So take heart. Don't abandon hope.

I believe that there are Americans that want to see the country burn down. Romney would have stopped the bleeding but probably not reversed the decay. I personally think Romney would have become more conservative as President. But purists who stayed home want a full reset no matter what the human cost. I think we collapse at some point if congress can't prevent a full blown dictatorship.

Anyone who follows this website realizes that any article on a community that is not white has comments that paint broad brush assumptions about them as a group rather than individuals. For example, the Jewish Community is very intelligent and savvy and see right through the fawning "support" of Israel and Jews by the right wing of the Republican Party, most particularly Sean Hannity. There are 12 Jewish Members in the House of Representatives - 0 are Republican. There are 26 Jewish Members in the Senate - 1 (Eric Cantor) is Republican. And people wonder why the Jewish Community votes for the Democrat Party. Another example, there are lots of people of Indian and Chinese origin who are fiscally conservative. But the religious rhetoric of the R's scares them. It's time for the Republicans to face reality. Keep religion and abortion out of politics. They are personal matters. The US is a secular country not a Christian country... if it was the latter, the founding fathers would have said so in the Constitution.

Read some religious commentaries #10. Behaviourly, Jews have historically assisted in their own destruction. American liberal Jews for the most part could not care less about Israel. Supporting Israel has been the only thing between America and its own final punishment from God.

It is like Rush said, people in this country voted for Santa Claus, not for the opportunity to work hard for themselves. It is all about getting the freebies, no matter the consequences.

#10, to use a Christian illustration, you strain at gnats and swallow camels in your own broad brushed assumptions. You are advising conservatives to keep religion and abortion out of politics, because those are "personal matters". Yet, you apparently have no problem with leftists introducing those same "personal matters" into politics on their terms, and their politics into religion through the use of political power to force religious organizations to go against their religious beliefs regarding contraception and abortion.

You tell white, social conservatives that non-white, fiscal conservatives fear them. Surely we are not to believe that the so-called christian liberation theology being implemented through policies of the leadership in the Democrat Party is less "scary" to them because Obama has enough pigmentation to darken his skin.

Conservatives aren't the threat to freedom and liberty.

A number of Calgarians are expressing their outrage over an ongoing radio promotion which has resulted in $5,000 in Canadian currency reduced to a pile of ash instead of being provided to a listener.

After a gay server at a New Jersey restaurant said a customer denied her a tip and wrote her a hateful note on the receipt, a local family contacted NBC 4 New York and said their receipt shows they paid a tip and didn´t write any such note. Dayna Morales, a former Marine and a server at Gallop Asian Bistro in Bridgewater, posted a photo on Facebook earlier this month, showing the bill with a line through the space for a tip. The photo of the receipt showed someone had written, "I'm sorry but I cannot tip because I do not agree with your lifestyle."

A five-year legal battle waged by a group of Benedictine monks against the Louisiana funeral industry was laid to rest Tuesday by the U.S. Supreme Court, which let stand an appellate ruling striking down a state law giving funeral directors a monopoly on the sale of caskets to the public. “It’s a great day for us, and we’re very thankful that this five-year battle is over,” said Abbot Justin Brown, who leads St. Joseph Abbey, a community of 34 monks whose primary work is educating future priests at St. Joseph Seminary near Covington and running a retreat center.

It seems like another life. At the height of his corporate career, Tom Palome was pulling in a salary in the low six-figures and flying first class on business trips to Europe. Today, the 77-year-old former vice president of marketing for Oral-B juggles two part-time jobs: one as a $10-an-hour food demonstrator at Sam´s Club, the other flipping burgers and serving drinks at a golf club grill for slightly more than minimum wage. While Palome worked hard his entire career, paid off his mortgage and put his kids through college, like most Americans he didn´t save enough for retirement. Even many affluent

OXFORD — Investigators say they haven´t found any ricin in the house of a Mississippi man accused of mailing poisoned letters to President Barack Obama, a U.S. senator and a local judge. FBI Agent Brandon Grant, testifying in federal court Monday, said a Friday search of Paul Kevin Curtis´ house in Corinth, Miss., did not turn up ricin or ingredients for the poison. A search of Curtis´ computers has found no evidence so far that he researched making ricin. Federal investigators believe the letters were mailed by Curtis, an Elvis impersonator who family members say suffers from bipolar disorder.

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — Puerto Ricans faced a fundamental question on Election Day: Should they change their ties with the United States? Citizens in the U.S. island territory cannot vote in the U.S. presidential election, but many were excited to participate in a referendum on whether to push the territory toward statehood, greater autonomy or independence. Car horns blared and party flags waved after polling stations closed following what election officials said was a high voter turnout. During the day, many voters carried umbrellas against the blistering tropical sun as temperatures neared 90 degrees Fahrenheit (31 degrees Celsius).

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing.

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep. Mike Rogers, who led all national politicians last year with 26 appearances over 12 months. Romney has
