As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following captioned artworkhere, being shared by the page, “V is for Voluntary,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…
V is For Voluntary: And the only person to call Congress a bunch of authoritarian psychopaths to their faces! Happy Birthday, Ron Paul! 🎈🎉🎈
“Happy 81st Birthday, Dr. Ron Paul! -Never compromised beliefs -Never voted to raise taxes -Opposed every bailout -Woke up millions -Anti-war for life -Opposed war on drugs -Fought to end the Fed -Delivered 4,000 babies -Author of six books -US Air Force veteran”
My Commentary: To correct the commentary by the original post, Paul technically called Congress “psychopathic authoritarians” right to their faces. Also, he was, in fact, referring to ALL of those who “endorse government initiated force to change the world,” – a reference to all of the DemoRepubliCrackpots out there who support the “War on Terror” and the “War on Drugs”.
The following debate originally took place upon my Facebook wall, after I posted a meme being shared by an acquainted from here…
“Yeah, if somebody could leak GOP emails from 2012 to show that they are also corrupt enough to rig elections… That’d be great”
Daniel Sv.: That’s a bit of a mis characterization. If there were any emails leaked, you would probably see that the RNC establishment was going out of their way to sabotage Trump. They desperately wanted some establishment candidate, even Ted Cruz (who is part of the establishment, though heavily disliked for his arrogant and brusque style). Remember how they attempted to cancel the Colorado primary and award the delegates to Cruz? The reason why Trump won is that the establishment was fundamentally bankrupt. People were tired of the establishment candidates pandering to topics that had nothing to do with them (abortion, endless wars, fundamentalist Christianity, etc) while signaling tepid support for maintaining the middle class, then when getting elected to chuck those by the wayside and pocket money from Goldman Sachs while continuing on unnecessary wars. People see that the establishment is scared of an outsider candidate like Trump and it’s making them mad with glee.
Rayn: Hmm… I’m not sure if you realize, but this meme actually refers to the RNC rigging of their own primary elections through the systematic disenfranchisement of presidential candidate Dr. Ron Paul in (both 2008 and) 2012.
