Ron Paul on Neo-Cons

August 24, 2010 at 2:20 am Leave a comment

The thing I admire about Ron Paul is his ability to stand by his views and beliefs.  His view on a given topic doesn’t usually change depending on skin color or religion. 

In Ron Paul’s statement of August 20th, he takes a (well-deserved) swipe at the racist underpinnings of the ne0-conservatives, pointing out the groups fatal flaws of hypocrisy in its stances and racism/prejudice in its actions.

Some of the greatest hits from his article:

It is repeatedly said that 64% of the people, after listening to the political demagogues, don’t want the mosque to be built. What would we do if 75% of the people insist that no more Catholic churches be built in New York City? The point being is that majorities can become oppressors of minority rights as well as individual dictators. Statistics of support is irrelevant when it comes to the purpose of government in a free society – protecting liberty.

The fact that so much attention has been given the mosque debate, raises the question of just why and driven by whom?  In my opinion it has come from the neo-conservatives who demand continual war in the Middle East and Central Asia and are compelled to constantly justify it.They never miss a chance to use hatred toward Muslims to rally support for the ill-conceived preventative wars.

The justification to ban the mosque is no more rational than banning a soccer field in the same place because all the suicide bombers loved to play soccer.

We invade and occupy Iraq where no al Qaeda existed prior to 9/11.
