The Donald is miffed Ron Paul has decided not attend his soirée. In response to a question about Paul’s decision to not attend – along with John Huntsman – the Newsmax GOP “debate” hosted by Trump, he said it doesn’t matter if “joke candidates” do not participate. “I think those two candidates have zero chance of being elected so it makes no difference.”
Joke candidate with zero chance? Mr. Trump should adjust his meds.
Over the weekend, Paul pulled ahead of Mitt Romney to secure second place in the latest Des Moines Register of likely Republican caucus participants in Iowa with 18 percent of the votes. The globalist darling that has received the lion’s share of corporate media coverage of late, New Gingrich, came in first with 25 percent while the pizza magnate and former director of the Kansas City Federal Reserve, Herman Cain, packed his bags and headed for the political wilderness. He tied with the Borg hive Tea Party favorite, Michele Bachman, at eight percent.
Trump told NBC’s Matt Lauer “Ron Paul as an example says Iran should have nuclear weapons or can have nuclear weapons and doesn’t even think in terms of Israel.”
During the CBS “debate” Ron Paul was asked about Israel and the impending attack on Iran for its supposed nuclear weapons program. He said Israel can take care of itself.
Paul has said U.S. “foreign military aid to Israel is actually more like corporate welfare to the U.S. military industrial complex, as Israel is forced to purchase only U.S. products with the assistance. We send almost twice as much aid to other countries in the Middle East, which only insures increased militarization and the drive toward war.”
Ron Paul has consistently opposed foreign aid – not just to Israel, but all foreign countries. “No foreign aid should exist. Foreign aid is taking money from poor people in rich countries and giving it to rich people in poor countries,” he said during the CBS establishment media event last month.
The Economist tried to shoot Paul down on this argument following the “debate,” but failed miserably. It didn’t bother to mention that foreign aid is immoral and unconstitutional.
“Taxpayers are forced to spend billions of dollars each year to protect the borders of other countries, while Washington refuses to deal with our own border security needs,” Paul writes. “Congress has been rendered virtually irrelevant in foreign policy decisions and regularly cedes authority to an executive branch that refuses to be held accountable for its actions.”
“If you’re concerned about high taxes, a tough job market, debt and the like, I recommend you start calling on the US government to start looking more closely at how the US government is spending your money. It is absurd, and completely immoral to take your money and give it to foreign countries. The money should be spent only on Constitutionally-authorized functions or, better yet, returned to you,” notes the Tenth Amendment Center.
This is the real reason Ron Paul is considered irrelevant and a “joke candidate” by the elite and its carnival barkers like Donald Trump. The idea that government should be constrained by the Constitution frightens the hell out of them.
For now, Trump and other ringmasters working for the global elite can write millions of Americans off as irrelevant and dismiss Paul and others who insist on constitutionally limited government as irrelevant, but that will not be the case tomorrow.
