Ron Paul planned ‘No’ vote for Afghanistan invasion

Ron Paul planned ‘No’ vote for Afghanistan invasion

In a statement released on Monday, a 16-year former aide to Texas Rep. Ron Paul writes that the presidential candidate “was opposed to the war in Afghanistan, and to any military reaction to the attacks of 9/11,” but ultimately voted “Yay” [sic] in the face of a threatened staff rebellion and near-certain political suicide.

Eric Dondero, the statement’s author, served closely with Paul from 1987 through 2003, beginning as his travel aide and personal assistant when he ran for president on the Libertarian ticket, and ending as a senior aide in Congress from 1997 through 2003. Dondero wrote that he resigned after becoming disillusioned with the congressman, ultimately citing personal and policy differences, including Paul’s opposition to the Iraq War. (RELATED: Wash. Post’s Lane: Ron Paul has the ‘foreign policy views of Jeremiah Wright’)

Following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, Paul “engaged in conspiracy theories including, perhaps, [that] the attacks were coordinated with the CIA, and that the Bush administration might have known about the attacks ahead of time,” Dondero wrote. “He expressed no sympathies whatsoever for those who died on 9/11, and pretty much forbade us staffers from engaging in any sort of memorial expressions, or openly asserting pro-military statements in support of the Bush administration.”

“On the eve of the vote,” the former Paul staffer continued, “Ron Paul was still telling us staffers that he was planning to vote ‘No’ on the resolution, and to be prepared for a seriously negative reaction in [his Texas] district. [Current District Case Director] Jackie Gloor and I, along with quiet nods of agreement from the other staffers in the district, declared our intentions to Tom Lizardo, our chief of staff, and to each other, that if Ron voted ‘No,’ we would immediately resign.”

I’m certain that anyone reading here already knows my feelings regarding Ron Paul, but if you don’t know, I have NO use for the disgusting little gnome. This story only gives me an even deeper disgust with the man.

I have, on numerous occasions, referenced Ron Paul and his followers as believers in what is called The 9-11 Truth movement, they are Truthers.

We all want to know the truth, and to be TOLD the truth, but Paul and his band of merry moonbats are convinced that the terror attacks of 9-11 were an inside job, one carried out by the CIA and George W. Bush, or, at the very least, were known to be about to happen by Bush and the CIA and that they (Bush and CIA) stood idly by and did nothing to stop these attacks from happening.

Folks, there is something I like to call a CLUE in the above statement, the CLUE being that Ron Paul is as crazy as a loon, and that his followers are NOT any better.

Almost 2 years ago I wrote these posts; The TRUTH about 9-11 Truthers and Debra Medina and Ron Paul: The 9-11 Truther Connection. In March of 2010 I wrote this post: Pentagon gunman sought ‘truth’ about 9/11. If you read those posts you will see a pattern develop, one that points to the insanity of Ron Paul, his followers and all that subscribe to the 9-11 Truther movement.

The thing to remember about The Truther bunch is this; they want us all to believe that Bush and Company either KNEW about 9-11, OR, they actually planned 9-11 and then had it carried out.

The most well coordinated attack on the USA since Dec. 7, 1941 was planned and carried out by the man that these very Truthers claim is too dumb to walk and chew gum.

Think about that for a moment, and then answer this question; is Ron Paul the guy you’d want to be in charge of OUR safety? Is Ron Paul the guy YOU would want to have the authority to launch a nuclear attack if needed … but wouldn’t have the GUTS to do so in an effort to save America?

I already know what the Paultards would say, they would follow Ron Paul if he jumped off of a cliff … and you know, that wouldn’t be an altogether bad occurrence if it DID happen.

    Just recently started to visit your blog again Fred, but I know you and your opinions and knew you must feel the same way I do about that “outstanding” rep from your great state of Texas. In fact just a very short time ago I posted on that immigrant (he would have run away) from the Alamo, one Ron Paul Trashing Ron Paul. I was a little kinder in my words, but my thoughts about his guy are the same as yours.

      Nice and Ron Paul are not words that go together for me… 😈

      It doesn’t make me popular with some when I say it but I DETEST that bastard… And every one of his followers…
