Isn’t It Interesting…

for Your Republic Now…or Lose It Forever
Partisan Politics article: Ron
Paul: Hi Ho Silver!
As most of
the media raves incessantly over the Romney vs. Perry
or Perry vs. Romney debate event that was mostly an
un-event, I find it quite interesting that an editor who was once
and senior editor of the New Republic magazine,
left of center publication on politics and arts, has had
the foresight to skip the nominee circus antics and go to the real
threat to Obamas re-election hopes ~ Ron Paul. Mr. Lane doesnt
waste time on the two-pony race presently being promoted by all
and sundry, but goes right for the dark horse who will walk away
with that title after all who sprang off their marks ahead of the
gun (so to speak) drop out.
after that meritorious recognition of truth (which most of the MSM
diligently avoids mentioning at any cost) he then resorts to weaseling
instead of presenting any real arguments to support his attempts
to shoot down Dr. Pauls ideas. Instead of providing evidence
to refute todays value of a silver dime, he ridicules the
idea of coining sound money as being 18th century out-of-date
than actually dispute the fact that cutting $20 billion a
year for air conditioning in Afghanistan and Iraq would save
millions of dollars a month that could be used to pay down our debt
and fund programs here at home that people still depend on, Mr.
Lane calls the idea an urban myth. His explanation as
to why its a myth appears to be based on two facts: 1) the
Pentagon disagrees and 2) the logistics officer the numbers originated
with now sells energy-conservation equipment instead of computing
logistical costs. Neither are very convincing in my opinion, but
readers can decide for themselves.
As for the
comments in regards to border fences possibly being
used for control of people or capital well just ignore the
previous Berlin Wall and present Gaza Walls as possible proof. Thankfully
Mr. Lane can agree that our governments own over-regulation of the
airline industry played a role in 9/11, although he prefers to ignore
facts reported by the CIA regarding the causes of 9/11.
Score 1 for
big step for truth and 2 big steps for weaseling.
