Andy Roth Grades Canditates on Economic Plan

Andy Roth from Club for Growth was on Fox News today to grade the candidates’ plans to liquidate the national debt.

Rick Santorum: Grade C
Ron Paul: Spectacular
Newt Gingrich: Grade C
Mitt Romney: Last Place
Huntsman: Incomplete
Perry: Grade: One of the best

Here is an article also by the Club for Growth about Ron Paul’s claim that Santorum is a big-government conservative.

“…it is certainly clear that Santorum’s record reveals a Member of Congress who stood on the side of big government on several major issues more than he did on the side of fiscal conservatism and economic freedom.”

Why Ron Paul Is Right And Barack Obama Is Wrong About Iran

Andrew Sullivan of the writes a sound article about Iran and the real danger that they pose. He writes:

“Obama also argues that he opposes Iran’s nukes because of proliferation in the region. At which point one must loudly cough “Ahem.” Only one country in the region has illegally, in defiance of international law and the NPT and US policy, has nuclear weapons and it’s Israel, not any Arab state. More absurdly, the US government has a formal policy of never acknowledging this fact. At one point in the not-so-distant past, the US government was committed to the view that Iraq had nukes but Israel didn’t.”

Read the full article here.

Ron Paul was in Congress when Israel bombed Iraq’s Osirak nuclear plant in 1981 and—unlike the United Nations and the Reagan administration—defended its right to do so.

Last but not least, according to the Natural Resources Defense Council and the Federation of American Scientists, Israel likely possesses around 75–200 nuclear weapons.

NH Tea Party Leader Jane Aitken personally endorses Ron Paul

Jane Aitken, NH Tea Party Leader announces:

“I am hereby making a personal endorsement of Congressman Dr. Ron Paul for President of the United States. I have followed his career since the early 1980s and I am sure that he is a man of integrity, good character, and trustworthiness both personally and professionally. America is at a precipice, time is short, and while others fail to realize it, business as usual just will not do.”

“It is rare to find a candidate who understands the proper role of government, is not afraid to tell the truth, and who is truly dedicated to real change. We must defy the establishment’s effort to dictate the outcome of our elections and unite behind someone who is truly ‘for the people’, instead of continually electing elitist Republicans who can only call themselves ‘conservative’.”

Ron Paul swings into New Hampshire

The San Francisco Chronicles reports:

“South Carolina voters are receptive to Ron Paul’s message that life is precious and military service is honorable, all in the context of his overall philosophy of a return to personal and economic liberty,” said Jesse Benton, Paul’s national campaign chairman.

Just hours after the close of the Iowa caucuses, Paul delivered a scathing retort to Gingrich, who labeled Paul’s foreign policy “dangerous.”

He called the former House speaker a “chicken” who, apparently, had no worries about danger to America when he took deferments rather than volunteering for military action in Vietnam. Paul caustically noted that politicians who send young people to war rather than going themselves are called “chicken hawks.”

“Romney has hit the ceiling. Gingrich has hit the ceiling,” he said. “And Santorum, frankly, in terms of the anti-Ron Paul candidacy, was the last bullet in the revolver.”

Quotes on Foreign Policy

“I have always given it as my decided opinion that no nation had a right to inter-meddle in the internal concerns of another; and that, if this country could, consistent with its engagements, maintain a strict neutrality and thereby preserve peace.” George Washington 1796

Sound familiar? Ron Paul has been saying and living these words for decades. Now, corrupt warmongers call him “dangerous” because of his sensible foreign policy. I ask the question: Dangerous for whom? Maybe for the pockets and egos of these megalomaniac cheerleaders for aggressive war?

All quotes below are by Ron Paul.

“War is never economically beneficial except for those in position to profit from war expenditures.”

“We need to return to reality when it comes to our Middle East policy. We need to reject the increasingly shrill rhetoric coming from the same voices who urged the president to invade Iraq.”

“There’s nothing wrong with being a Conservative and coming up with a Conservative believe in foreign policy where we have a strong national defense and we don’t go to war so carelessly.”

“Ultimately, our money, weapons, and interventionist policies never buy us friends for long, and more often we simply arm our future enemies. The politicians responsible for the mess are usually long gone when the trouble starts, and voters with a short attention span don’t connect the foreign policy blunders of twenty years ago with today’s problems. But wouldn’t our long-term interests be better served by not creating the problems in the first place?”

“U.S. taxpayers have a right to know exactly what we’re getting for our foreign aid dollars. Have we helped bring peace and prosperity to Afghanistan? Have we eased suffering there? Have we added to stability in the region? Have we earned the love or respect of the Afghan people? Have we made an ally of the Taliban government? The answer to all of these entirely reasonable questions is a resounding NO.”

“It is not too late to change course. The United States can again be viewed as the shining city on the hill and an example to other nations by re-embracing the kind of foreign and economic policies that made us wealthy and admired across the globe in the first place. This means less government, less taxation, and no foreign meddling. Regaining our economic security will go much further toward guaranteeing our national security in the future.”

“What is badly needed today is a coherent foreign policy based on American national security and self-defense, free trade, a rejection of entangling political and military alliances, and a wholesale removal of the U.S. from the clutches of global government.”

“We must not isolate ourselves. The generosity of the American people has been felt around the globe. Many have thanked God for it, in many languages. Let us have a strong America, conducting open trade, travel, communication, and diplomacy with other nations.”

“We have a lot of goodness in this country. And we should promote it, but never through the barrel of a gun. We should do it by setting good standards, motivating people and have them want to emulate us.”

Ron Paul: “Ideas Do Have Consequences”

“Smart people get frustrated,” Mr. Paul said. “They say, ‘I agree with you, but you’re one person, and not enough people. How are you going to get the majority to come along with you?”

“But you know what? This is ideological. Ideas do have consequences. Ideas are changing. The ideology of the founders was shared by maybe 5 percent of the people at that time, but they knew and understood and they were well educated and they were able to being the people along. So it isn’t a numbers game. It has to do with determination and the rightness and the truthfulness of the ideas.”
