Debate is No Place for Disagreement!

Did you happen to check out the most recent republican presidential debate? If you did, standing amidst the usual sorts (McCain, Romney, blah, blah, blah) you might have noticed a man named Ron Paul, and thought to yourself, "who in the world is that?"

Well Ron Paul is the RNC's biggest nightmare right now, that's who he is. He's a nightmare because he doesn't tow the line of republican talking points. Explaining the origin of terrorist against the U.S he attempted to give a rational explanation:

"They attack us because we've been over there. We've been bombing Iraq for 10 years. We've been in the Middle East. I think Reagan was right. We don't understand the irrationality of Middle Eastern politics. Right now, we're building an embassy in Iraq that is bigger than the Vatican. We're building 14 permanent bases. What would we say here if China was doing this in our country or in the Gulf of Mexico? We would be objecting....I believe the CIA is correct when it warns us about blowback. We overthrew the Iranian government in 1953 and their taking the hostages was the reaction. This dynamic persists and we ignore it at our risk. They’re not attacking us because we’re rich and free, they’re attacking us because we’re over there."

HOW DARE HE? Doesn't he know that Islamo-Fascists hate us because of our FREEDOM! (Ignore the fact that Bin Laden himself has said that attacks on the U.S are because of
  1. American involvement in the Middle East
  2. Palestine
  3. Sanctions on Iraq
Well worry no more, the GOP party is now in full swing doing what it does best, silencing dissent by attempting to bar Ron Paul from future debates. This campaign is being spearheaded by Saul Anuzis, chairman of the Michigan Republican Party. He plans on circulating a petition among Republican National Committee members, debate sponsors and broadcasters to give Paul the boot!

I love it! Barring someone from a DEBATE because they said things you don't agree with! Isn't that the whole point of a debate? Classic.

I thought that the terrorists hated us because of the secularization of our society. Isn't that what Jerry (may he RIP) Falwell said? Perhaps this rogue Republican didn't have a chance to make it down to Liberty Univ. before he decided to throw his hat into the ring. That must be the problem.

Wow. He almost makes me want to vote for a republican. He's the first dude to talk substantive sense on the middle east from either side of the primary.
