Ron Paul Talking Points

On Tuesday, Ron Paul was on CNBC.

Here's another link with the same video. (Dwhelper works with YouTube but not with mainstream media video players. I have a somewhat slow Internet connection. It's easier for me to download a video rather than watch while streaming. Also, mainstream media players don't support fast-forward and rewind. It loses the buffer and you have to re-download.)

Ron Paul wins the "least evil Congressman" award. Still, I found that video very disturbing. Do you see why? Watch the video carefully.

Ron Paul goes from one talking point to the next. That's an evil conversation style. It's Liberarian talking points, but it's still a bunch of talking points.

Listen carefully! Ron Paul is going from one talking point to another, rather than speaking in English.

That is partially forced by the mainstream media interview style. Ron Paul only has a few minutes, which isn't enough time to explain his non-mainstream viewpoint.

I find Rand Paul disturbing. When he criticizes State evil, I feel that he's reading from a teleprompter rather than really meaning it. Rand Paul seems to have some parasitic tendencies.

This quote was really disturbing. Rand Paul seems to say that people who attend anti-government protests that advocate violence should be treated as criminals. State thugs don't seem to make much distinction between nonviolent resistance and violent resistance. Besides, there isn't much difference between "The government's authority isn't legitimate!" and "If you try to kidnap me, I'm going to defend myself!"

It's hard to evaluate someone's personality type on TV. You can't tell unless you meet them in person and it's somewhat interactive.

Ron Paul wins the "least evil Congressman" award. He's pushing the limits of the "debate ceiling" and "Overton Window". Ron Paul represents the most Libertarian/minarchist viewpoint you can have, and still get elected.

However, you can be the least evil Congressman and still be pretty evil.

Ron Paul illustrates the fallacy of "working within the system". He's accomplished practically nothing, regarding shrinking government and eliminating the Federal Reserve. He still gets earmarks for his district in spending bills. However, Ron Paul has helped raise awareness for the evils of the Federal Reserve and IRS.

Do Ron Paul and Rand Paul have the "abused productive" personality type? Are they parasites who found a lucrative niche? They win the "least evil Congressmen" award. They may have evil tendencies. I can't be sure, because I haven't met them in person. You can't tell if someone is evil by seeing them on TV.

I have these same misgivings about the Pauls. Politicians are politicians are politicians. It would just be really surprising if Ron and Rand were cut from entirely different cloth than all of their co-workers.

I am really curious how Rand Paul will spin his recent comments or whether he'll just hope they're forgotten eventually due to the support for his actions against the Patriot Act.

He seems unusually nervous and hurried in his responses. He also seems to jump around a lot trying to present details and specifics to back up his point of view. Unfortunately almost everything he says is way above the heads of what the typical voter understands. Too bad, it would be entertaining to see what he could actually change as president (I suspect nothing).

One thing is for sure . . . the evil bitch interviewing him hates his guts.

I no longer think that it makes any difference who is president. Both parties continue the same policies.

Last week our town had a referendum to approve a property tax increase. The voter turnout was 12.9%. The increase passed.

Not a single person on my street voted!

87.1 % of the voters do not care.

You can be sure that teachers and State employees voted for the tax increase!

I didn't notice that the interviewer hated him. I see it a little now.

Those subtle attitudes are an important part of pro-State brainwashing. If the interviewer has the attitude "This guy is disgusting!", that will fool people.

FSK,

Her tone of voice seems either hostile towards him or suspicious of him. She definatly hates the ideas that Paul is presenting. Examples: At 5:25 she corrects Paul by stating that now (2011) is a lot different than 2008. She gives no reason why.
At 6:30 she interupts Paul and tells him that the Federal reserve can reign in inflation by raising the interest rates. Who knew that? Wow?

She hates his message. Who could blame her? What stupid uninformed voter would vote for a candidate whose message is " We are running out of air and will soon suffocate."

Please don't make me watch the video again.
