War Is Better Than Ron Paul, Say (Many) Progressives

29th August 2011      by: Tom Woods     

I go after the twisted and deranged priorities at AlterNet.org, which would rather see more foreigners killed and propaganda peddled than elect an honest man who doesn’t agree with them on everything but who is the only one who even says he’ll stop these things.

Unlearn the Propaganda!

    Tom is one of the best spokesmen available for Ron Paul. The best way to promote his value is to donate to the Revolution Pac. If there is a good showing in the money bomb, he will get a decent amount of MSM exposure. Can you imagine Tom demanding that reporters shape up and look at our problems without their “twisted” priorities?

    Great video.  As usual, you do an awesome job of breaking everything down for anyone to understand.

    Not only do progressives prefer war over Ron Paul, but neo-cons would prefer Obama over Ron Paul.

    Ron Paul is a threat to the Progressives(Socialists) big government Welfare State. This is why they are reluctant to support him.

    First of all, I’ve never seen anyone use sarcasm so effectively on so many diverse occasions. 

    Second, I understand your intention, and I think it’s quite effective due to the emotional appeal.  I don’t think I’ve seen a better plea to progressives to vote for Ron Paul in such a concise manner.  But to be honest, I think you’re assuming most of these guys are principled progressives.  They’re not.  they’re mostly just political hacks.  there are few like Glenn Greenwald out there who are consistent and principled.  Most people just vote for their home team, right or wrong.

    I know that this video received much attention on Twitter last night, and the AlterNet author was sent the link multiple times. 

    Interesting that her Twitter timeline had several anti-Ron Paul tweets on Aug. 29.

    I do hope she replies to Tom, but I won’t hold my breath.
