Hate Trump? You Should Have Voted for Ron Paul

(Before It's News)

The world needs much more analysis like this. This is excellent. Clear, levelheaded, thoughtful political analysis. And it comes to us from a professor at Cal State Fullerton and in Counter Punch of all places.

I’m sorry folks but you Dems who got so worked up for Hillary were had. She was the war candidate (she said removing Assad was priority number one) and deeply corrupt to boot. You had a chance to steer things in the fight direction with Ron Paul. But your love of the state got in the way of your love (?) of peace and love(?) of honest politics. You threw in with “The Queen of Chaos” as she started an illegal war in Libya and sat quietly while Obama nodded on occasionally pressing the drone strike button. Frankly if you threw in with that crowd you really deserve Trump.

And I will also say that at least the Bernie people had some guts. (Even if Bernie’s economic take is clueless.)

(From Counter Punch)

I see a lot of angry and depressed liberals these days despairing about what has happened to their world.  The promised coronation of the Queen of Chaos was cancelled and we got (insert insulting nickname of choice) instead. Just the other day I saw a spokesperson from Resist Fascism! or some similarly named group screaming at Fox News viewers that Trump is not only Hitler (old news) but that he will in fact be worse than Hitler. Worse than Hitler? Do we even have a threat level color for that?

As I puzzle to make sense of the daily media hyperventilating, I think back a few years to the relatively tranquil Republican primaries of 2008 and 2012. At the time I was not making myself many friends. I’d harangue anyone who would listen that we had a unique occasion to – if we could just get together, man! – put someone in the White House who would permanently dismantle the American War Machine.  I’m talking of course about perennial libertarian hopeful, Ron Paul. In his 2012 primary run in particular Paul made some astonishing promises that I’m pretty sure he meant to at least try to keep. For one, he was going to slash the US military budget in half. Along with that, no more unnecessary wars. For icing on the cake he was going to shutter the CIA’s entire operations wing, making The Company nothing more than an intelligence gathering analytical department. And NSA mass surveillance would soon be a thing of the past.

In other words, Paul was planning to kill off the Deep State. Nobody knew this term then but almost everyone does now. While the original meaning was a bit more precise, the people who run the government from the shadows and have recently been hard at work making up stories about peeing Russian prostitutes while plotting a neocon-backed coup.

    President Trump has a 5 gallon bucket full of balls and no nerve endings. The dude looks the devil in the eye and says what he means.
    He is simply much to bold and blatant to make it easy for the one world order to get over on him.

    They would have had Ron Paul for dinner.

    And, liberals my ass. The republicans in the pentagram as well as republican governors and all other republican politicians in the country, it isn’t just “angry and depressed liberals” it is “angry and depressed conservatives” as well.
    President Trump seems to be trying to put an end to both republican and democrat bullshit.
    Which, that is one huge mass of hot steaming bullshit.
