Gays run and hide, neocons and liberals shiver,Ordinarily one wouldn't expect to see all the respectable authorities prepare such a bubbling cauldron of sulfuric acid for a man who numbers among his heroes The Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Junior, and Fellow Traveler on the Bus of Progress Rosa Parks. But what does this tricky "Doctor" Ron Paul actually prescribe? Well, as far as I can tell, in foreign affairs he wants to eliminate the U.S. military and turn over the American nuclear arsenal to Iran. He'd also throw in some long-range missiles with their guidance systems set for Israel a country he wants to wipe not only off the map,
Here comes Ron Paul, most vicious hombre iver.
About the only government officials remaining in Ron Paul's America would be those
who'd close America's borders to prevent foreigners (or anything else, apparently) from
entering. And immigrants deemed illegal would be unceremoniously thrown out. Paul's
America would still allow some foreigners to become American citizens, that is as long as they
could recite sections of the Constitution (Ron Paul Edition) and the Articles of
Confederation, as well as lengthy excerpts from reactionary nutjob Ludwig von Mises's
"treatise," Human Action. (Known adherents of Austrian economics could be
excused from reciting the first two documents and permitted to focus on the third.) (By
the way, notice that this "Professor" von Mises has a very German-sounding name. But as
Wall Street Journal editorialist Dorothy Rabinowitz might say with a wave of her hand,
we won't go into that now.)
In domestic matters, Ron Paul says he wants the country to abide by the Constitution. In fact, he takes the Constitution, as he understands it, so seriously that upon being sworn in to uphold it he would immediately call for the impeachment and removal of all members of the Supreme Court except for Anthony Scalia. Neo-Confederate Paul thinks the Constitution is comparable to the Articles of Confederation, and he repudiates some of the amendments enacted since the late War Between the States the very revisions that transmuted the Constitution from the tattered, mud-trampled rag it had become by 1865 (thanks to those Proto-Nazi Paleo-Confederates!) into the miraculously living and breathing entity it is today. As far I can tell, he would invalidate the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments, returning these United States to the status quo ante bellum. Slavery, the Dred Scott decision, and the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 would once more become the law of the land.
Now, that would not make the descendants of the illegally freed slaves very happy; but their future would be a virtual Garden of Eden compared with the calamities that would befall members of other groups in Ron Paul's America. For example, with states' rights reigning supreme, Gay Americans would be in a heap of trouble since most of flyover America, AKA Appalachia-to-the-Rockies America, would immediately enact legislation in line with the proposals of that Nebraska minister who supports Paul, punishing homosexuality with death as prescribed by the Old Testament. (What would happen to the Transgendered among us hardly bears imagining.)
In seeking to abide by his strict interpretation of the Constitution, Ron Paul would eliminate all cabinet departments. Consequently, Department of Interior park lands would be sold off to the highest bidders, greedy capitalists all. Those laissez-faire running dogs would inject poisonous fracking fluid into Old Faithful in the quest for oil, while the rest of Yellowstone would serve as an ideal dump for nuclear waste. Yosemite would be metamorphosed into a giant gravel pit. Given all the rampant capitalist exploitation of natural resources, it would not take 50 years for Global Warming to destroy the planet; instead, by year four of a Paul presidency, median temperatures on Earth could be expected to reach the boiling point.
Abolishing the Department of Labor would mean the end of labor unions, allowing the
cackling, moustache-twisting Robber Barons to lower workers' wages to those now prevailing
in South Sudan. Dumping the Department of Education would mean total illiteracy for
the masses, with only that notorious
Of course, Ron Paul would abolish the Federal Reserve System and make gold the only legal tender, which would eliminate all savings accounts in the United States.
It has not yet been claimed that this Paul character would use the meager federal funds remaining to outsource gas chambers for the usual victims, but it is quite likely that this is an unstated goal, given the language in those periodicals of a mere twenty years ago for which he served as publisher. Perhaps we should consult the eagle-eyed Philip Roth on that point.
Yes, this "Doctor" Ron Paul is an authentic Anarcho-Peace Nazi who would totally destroy the United States as we know it. Now, I may be a sworn foe of government, but I am strongly tempted to vote this time as strongly as I was back in 1964 when all the respectable authorities warned us that Barry Goldwater would blow up the world!
