Ron Paul - When Fascism Comes To This Country

During an interview on the Fox and Friends morning show, Republican Presidential candidate decided to quote a little Sinclair Lewis in response to Mike Huckabee's Christmas commercial which supposedly has a floating cross in the background. I never saw the much talked about floating cross but then again I always had trouble finding Waldo as a kid. Anyways, Crazy-as-a-fox Ron Paul had this to say:
"When fascism comes to this country, it will be wrapped in the flag, carrying a cross."
You can watch the interview with Ron Paul below:

Paul is an on-line phenom, and extremely popular with young, first-time voters.

I have a 20-year old son to prove it.

I part with Paul on foreign policy and the war on terror, but he's a real conservative economically.

It will be surprising to see the percentage he garners in the early primaries.

Ron Paul's insight was that the government should get out of the culture wars. Just as he rebuked a questioner about offering an "inappropriate question" when he was asked about evolution, saying that it's inappropriate for the president to make any decisions about science, so he rebuked Mike Huckabee for using religious symbols in his advertising. Ron Paul is coming from a position of proper humility. He is correct that presidential candidates should be involved in far less than they currently are. Ron Paul has done his best to push the debate towards the issues proper for a presidential candidate.

On this point, Ron Paul is probably right.

I personally think Ron Paul is off his rocker on plenty of issues, and this is just another example. Bringing up a quote like this (an ignorant statement if you ask me), when asked about a supposed floating cross is really ridiculous. What he should have said is that he is tired of the media focusing on silliness like this and would like to get back to discussing the issues. Until we, the voters, demand better media coverage we are going to continue to get drive-by, yellow journalism like this crap. And the media just eats up one liners like Paul has given us continuously.

But if I were you I'd be careful about what you post about Ron Paul. I have seen his supporters lurking on all sorts of blog, waiting to pounce on anyone who speaks a negative word against him. Maybe all of them really are immature 20 year old kids who don't really understand foreign policy, have no idea about monetary policy, and have plenty of time to blog from their parents basements.

I liked the quote but it doesn't apply to Huckabee. Paul is a nut.

But I'm just amazed at all of this money that he's raising - though apparently it hasn't really given him a bump in the polls. I made a couple of anti-Paul remarks in class one day and was promptly pounced upon by two quiet Texas Libertarians. The message board dedicated to Baylor religion and politics has been for the past 6+ months flooded with Ron Paul threads. It's obnoxious.
