As we approach the Iowa caucuses, the polls have become kinder to Ron Paul. This surge in the polls has brought with it a closer examination of and a need to learn more about Ron Paul's own views, specifically towards the State of Israel. The voting public has been bombarded in recent weeks with hundreds of media reports that have handled Paul's past with kid gloves, much in the same manner that the media reports on Obama all the time yet has kept the public in the dark about President Obama's ineptness and incompetence over the past three years. Media opinion makers and the Liberal elite who are behind Obama's run for reelection are very much supportive of Ron Paul's candidacy so as to make Obama's success at the polls that much more palpable for the general public.
Over the past week, a former staff assistant of Ron Paul, Eric Donero, has shared with the public a peek into what makes Paul tick, and to be honest, the description is somewhat frightening.
- Concerning Israel "he wishes that the Israeli state did not exist at all". Paul holds to the position that Israel is more trouble than it is worth, specifically to the America taxpayer. He sides with the Palestinians, and supports their calls for the abolishment of the Jewish state, and the return of Israel, all of it, to the Arabs. This being the case, Ron Paul should be labeled for being what he is, anti-Israel.
- Concerning 9/11, Donero claims that Paul engaged in conspiracy theories including perhaps the attacks were coordinated with the CIA, and that the Bush administration might have known about the attacks ahead of time. He expressed no sympathies whatsoever for those who died on 9/11, and pretty much forbade staffers from engaging in any sort of memorial expressions
- Concerning World War II, Donero claims that Ron Paul is most assuredly an isolationist. Paul strenuously does not believe the United States had any business getting involved in fighting Hitler in WWII. This was expressed by Paul to Donero countless times, that “saving the Jews,” was absolutely none of our business. Paul often brought up conspiracy theories like FDR knew about the attacks of Pearl Harbor weeks before hand, or that WWII was just “blowback,” for Woodrow Wilson’s foreign policy errors, and such. When challenged, Paul would concede that in instances of German U-boats attacking U.S. ships, or landing on the coast of North Carolina or Long Island, NY, that and only that was reason enough to counter-attack against the Nazis, not any humanitarian causes like preventing the Holocaust.
Ron Paul is very much a believer in an American isolationist foreign policy, and totally opposed to projecting American power beyond her borders. This mindset is very similar to what President Obama has been doing to the detriment of American interests throughout the world. Abdicating American power is a sure way of inviting Islamic extremism to attack America, something that Ron Paul and Obama evidently have in common. This denial of America's leading role in protecting the free world is the kind of denial that enabled fascism to raise its head and threaten Democratic nations everywhere. In the past it was the Nazi's and today its Islamic fundamentalist nations.
Ron Paul seems to have fallen asleep during the past decade in which we the vast majority of middle ground, have come to the realization that when you must shoot, don't talk. The free Democratic world is threatened from within as globalization movements mobilize disenchanted and violent Americans to burn the barn down with everyone still inside. From beyond the borders of America, the Islamic world, unperturbed by President Obama, has used the current Presidency to prepare for the next stage of going after the "infidels" on their home turf. This is what Ron Paul is willing to condone, similarly, so is President Obama.
This being the case, Ron Paul is unfit to hold high office and should not be given the opportunity to weaken the Republican party in the overall effort to unseat President Obama.
