Iowa Rep. Steve King has Joined the Attack on Ron Paul... Nothing New Given the Un-principled State of Republican Politics Today

Liberty -vs- Tyranny

As the Statist big "R" republican machine continues it's orchestrated and unprincipled attack on the only constitutional conservative (and true liberty) candidate in the big "R" circus tent another false conservative has just joined in the ATTACK.

Why in the hell Ron Paul hasn't chucked the republican party and acknowledged it belongs on the trash heap of history is beyond my conservative and libertarian ability abilty to conceive.

The republican party, once the proud party that included the likes of Dwight Eisenhower, Barry Goldwater, Adlai Stevenson, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, and many more has become the party of... "The Twentieth Century Circus Tent of Alleged Conservatives." Sad indeed are the apparent leaders of the GOP (modern translation - Grand Old Poop) and their agenda of backwards thinking and hide bound ideological BS. The republican party is almost (although not quite) as bad as the hide bound democrat ideology.

At any rate, it is indeed unfortunate that we are so lacking in a consistent, rational, honest, and cohesive conservative/libertarian vision. Ron Paul has consistently attempted to give the nation just that. For his Patriot and constitutionally supported efforts he continues to be either ignored or vilified.

We as a people, many whom actually have read and understand the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States of America are content to stand by and accept the March of Statism. The one man willing to stand in opposition to the eventual destruction of our founding principles has not yet found the will to stand totally apart from main stream Statist American politics and start a third party to stand tall in support of our Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the principles of a democratic representative government.

Now, as I step off my soap box I give you yet another example of statism and blind ideological loyalty at work...

(THE HILL) - Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) blasted Ron Paul's foreign policy views Friday in an interview with The Hill and hinted that he might endorse someone else in order to try and stop Paul from winning the Iowa caucuses.

King, a conservative kingmaker in Iowa, said Paul's foreign policy views are dangerous and have not received enough scrutiny. He said Paul once told him he wants to bring home all American troops.

"What Ron Paul supporters need to think about if they think they can elect him as president, a commander in chief can order all of the armed forces back to the United States," he told The Hill. "That means no presence anywhere on the globe — our enemies can fill that vacuum with very little resources, and I am very troubled by that.

"I don't think that’s a worthwhile price to pay to get the good things Ron Paul talks about, like deficit reduction. I don't think that's worth sacrificing our national security."

King, who has not endorsed, said that Paul's strong position in the state might make him more likely to back another candidate. He spoke positively about both Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney. {Read More}

And there you have it conservative and libertarians. Another 'so called conservative' about to back Romney or Santorum. Both as big a statist (translation - anti liberty) politicians as you might find. Other than Barrack Hussein Obama and Newt Gingrich of course.

Given the current of present day politics in both the republican and democratic parties the future indeed looks VERY bleak.

Ron Paul is the only candidate standing in the way of complete abrogation of constitutional principles and ultimately the rule of law.

  1. I didn;t know Adlai Stevenson was a republican at one time. Learn something new every day.

    I can't bash your post because the premise applies to the democratic party as well.

  2. Poor Joe. From reading the above comment, he was all ready to bash something, and couldn't really find a target in the post.

    Well, here I am. Bash away!

  3. Yeah Joe, thought Stevenson would give the post (premise) a little twist if you will. Thanks for noticing.

  4. King is a nut. I saw this one press conference with him, Bachmann, and Louie Gohmert and basically muttered the same thing that you just did. The Republicans have gone from Ike, Rocky, Gerry Ford, and Everett Dirksen to these frigging imbeciles. It's exceedingly sad, IMO.
