Voices of Reason

Yesterday we posted the comments of Frank Luntz, who argued that Ron Paul supporters were hurting their candidate's cause. The youtube Ron Paul community erupted, and hundreds of comments were posted within just 24 hours. Amidst all the messages whose sole purpose was to comment on Mr Luntz's alleged wig, or his weight, or just send a familiar expletive his way, there were others that dealt in what apparently passes for "substance". We present here some of our favorites:

  • Ron Paul supporters are just a bit more educated on how We The People have been getting raped by this government and how the media has [sic] been covering up this crime. That's why you see the anger.
  • There are crazy people in the world. We can't stop them from claiming to support Ron Paul.
  • Do we live in bizzaro world or something? How can anyone even believe this stuff?
  • Luntz .... you manipulative bastard. You and Fox were made for each other.
  • Tarring and feathering British tax collectors probably turned a lot of "swing"-Revolutionaries off in New Hampshire, too, back in the 1700's.
  • I am a Ron Paul supporter and I also agree with Mr. Luntz on that two point of violence/aggressive behavior drives people away and is not becoming and that Paul should have been included in the debate.
  • You have just been Frank-ed and manipulated! Use your brain! Do not listen to what that piece of [expletive deleted] is telling you!
  • Please tell other people what to do and how to behave so that you will show your true love of fascism.
  • Anyone can look up your name and see you are a jew trying to discredit Ron Paul.... you Jew troll....go back to israel. And you wonder why you peopke [sic] have been kicked out of every decent country in the world.
  • There is a very strong possibility that the people who started that snowball throwing and other negative acts like it could be associated with another political candidate and are doing these things intentionally to make the true Ron Paul supporters look like a bunch of hostile idiots.... It is known that the CIA infiltrated the Hippie movement during the 60's and make the revolutionist thinkers look bad.
  • I could write a book on this subject since I've had much experience in leading the revolution that brought down a dictator! This is just a try to seduce the more moderate base of the RP supporters! Man, I can't believe some people just wrote that they agree with the most despicable ANIMAL, Frank, that mass media has ever seen! Is it this easy to change your thinking people? WOW!
  • Now, what the bastard is trying to pull off here is "pussyfication" of some voters, meaning, manipulating their reason and cutting off their BALLS so they lose the courage to speak for themselves!
  • I'm sure if you could go back and hear some of the angry words spoken by Founding Fathers and the Colonists towards the king and the banksters in England, you'd find alot of "ugliness" in their words.
  • Frank Luntz is going down.
  • This country liberated itself from England by smashing windows with boxes and dumping tea into the sea, not by sucking up to propagandists.
  • Hey Frank If I was [sic] there for the Hannity chasing alot [sic] more snow balls would found their mark. I think those people where [sic] quite restrained. Tell you what Fox, its [sic] getting ugly for you people right now.
  • For all we know George Bush could be putting up this crap about Ron Paul being Racist and having racist supporters.
  • Luntz is telling us to shut the [expletive deleted] up and leave him alone to weave his lies. He's a fraud and braking [sic] the law by being part of the Fox and other media cartel that is trying to undermine our elections.
  • OBAMA AND RON PAUL WERE CHEATED IN NH!! There was CONFIRMED voter fraud!! DEMAND A RECOUNT,NOW!!! [sic] Their [sic] stealing our elections AGAIN!!
  • You are such a hypocrite Frank. Don't you dare pretend to be fair [sic] reporter. You are scum.
  • Why is Frank not in jail?
  • Hung for treason is a better question.
  • someone throw a bagel at that fat subhuman.
  • When they put you in a concentration camp, chip you and beat up your mom for cause [sic] she has some character left, maybe you will thank those who tried to stop it before it was too too late.
  • Ron Paul has fought this battle for 31 years. Time to stand at his side as he goes up against these war mongering murderers!
  • When will we start killing these [expletive deleted].
  • frank luntz= arrogant zionist jew
  • Terrorism is the price of empire. If we do not wish to pay it, we must give up the empire.
  • If the american people are smart they should send only neocons and jews people [sic] who are responsible for the war in Iraq to war...
  • This is our country we are talking about? What is wrong with a little damn passion for once?
  • Im [sic] not even from the US but somebody has to speak out against the bias that surrounds the fox network and the zionist jews that control the media, Ron Paul is aware of them and does not want to follow them, for that he is ridiculed in a very bad way...
  • Oh,those [sic] terrible Ron Paul supporters called that poor Hannity man an [expletive deleted].All [sic] because hes [sic] paid to lie to the american public.There [sic] was a time in america,when [sic] people the [sic] hannity,and [sic] luntz,were [sic] tarred,and [sic] feathered(literally)But [sic sic sic] thats not plitically [sic] correct(anymore)Yes,Ron [sic sic sic sic] Paul supporters,you [sic] should wait untill [sic] after your [sic] forced to have a national I.D. card,your [sic] children forced to die for (your?) country,and [sic] after H.R.1955 is passed to get indignent. [sic]

Wow. Just wow.

I'll say it again. Ron Paul is the canidate of the anarchist and the Anti-Semite. No wonder David Duke supports this guy.

I think that the use of 'sic' in digital text that was obviously copied & pasted is just mean-spirited.

Sorry that you feel that way, but we always use it when quoting someone else. Saves a lot of time responding to people who think WE made some sort of mistake in our grammar or spelling.

Ron Paul is not a Jew hater. He is an America lover. He is the only candidate with a consistent voting record that supports the freedoms and opportunities of an empowered individualistic society.

Dr Paul is an egomaniac narcisist.
His little lone wolf votes in defense of the Republic are meaningless.
instead of being ineffective he could have actually tried to engage more with his fellow Congressmen and get them to advance his causes... like Tom Tancredo did.

So, Johnny. Why do you hate America? I didn't ask for yes or no. You already answered that. I just want to know why.

This is what OSC sounds like:
Indeed. The record shows that Captain Kirk once held the rank of Admiral. And that Admiral Kirk was broken for taking matters into his own hands in defiance of regulations of the law. Do you deny being demoted for these charges? DON'T WAIT FOR THE TRANSLATION. Answer me now.

"don't wait for the translation" was made famous by Adlai Stevenson, in a showdown at the UN with the Russkies, all about those Russian missiles in Cuba. Not particularly relevant but interesting.

Judging by these comments, Luntz was absolutely correct.

Always knew you were an undercover lib, FF. Anyone that question's spelling or grammatical error's, yet can't spell or use proper grammar, is certainly a RP Loon aka Disgruntled KOS'IE. Finally the truth comes out and the best part is , no one had to do anything to prove what I said months ago about your true reason for posting.

You hurt your cause more often than not in your inept ramblings. You reinforce the notion of your desperation and loneliness by posting your insipid comments and replying to yourself three or four times in a row. Please stop before you force a sad chuckle of pity from my lungs.

Tread lightly on the Paulnuts, they are an emotional clan. Common sense plays no part in their equation, it's all idealism and emotion, but if you disagree, look the f$#k out cuz they'll come after you bigtime!

Foreign policy aside (as I've said here before that I am not perfectly in line with), Ron Paul has the most adherent record to republican values of any of the candidates. Some would argue that his foreign policies are more traditional republican than neocon republican. His Taxation/federal size and power vs state/economical approaches also is a definition of the difference between traditional republicans and neocon republicans. 
I prefer smaller gov't, less taxes, more personal responsibility, and less restrictions for businesses and individuals. I guess I'm just a liberal!
