[UPDATE: scroll down for a nice illustration from the Lex!]
Senior Republican Political Analyst Charles Johnson has not endorsed any of the Republican candidates, though he has of course "un-dorsed" certain others, such as Mike Huckabee and every single one of the Democrats.
So here's a suggestion for you lizardoids and lizardettes. Read the following quotes and decide if this is someone you'd like to have in the White House:
Once again, President Clinton is using American troops to deflect attention from his record of lies, distortions, obstructions of justice and abuse of power.
Freedom is defined by the ability of citizens to live without government interference.
Liberty means free-market capitalism.
By encouraging Americans to adopt a group mentality, the advocates of so-called “diversity” actually perpetuate racism.
Because federal hate crime laws criminalize thoughts, they are incompatible with a free society.
Sound good so far? Here are some more:
You don’t have a right to a house, you don’t have a right to a job, you don’t have a right to medical care.
Abortion on demand is the ultimate State tyranny.
The notion of a rigid separation between church and state has no basis in either the text of the Constitution or the writings of our Founding Fathers.
The Founding Fathers envisioned a robustly Christian yet religiously tolerant America, with churches serving as vital institutions that would eclipse the state in importance.
A nation without secure borders is no nation at all. It makes no sense to fight terrorists abroad when our own front door is left unlocked.
Birthright citizenship, originating in the 14th amendment, has become a serious cultural and economic dilemma for our nation. . . . We must end the perverse incentives that encourage immigrants to come here illegally, including the anchor baby incentive.
If we continue down the UN path, America as we know it will cease to exist.
Global warming is fear politics. Earth may be warming, but whether it is due to humans is disputed.
Pretty exciting stuff! And now, the clincher:
Prohibiting guns on campus made the Virginia Tech students less safe, not more.
The Saturday Night Special is a wonderful weapon. Because they should be legalized in every household, especially the inner city. Because, that's where the greatest amount of crime is.
Gun control is NOT the answer to our crime problem -- and not one of our Constitutional rights is up for "debate."
By now all you patriotic, freedom-loving, anti-abortion, pro-gun, pro-Christian, anti-immigration, diversity-hating Americans are probably asking yourselves: where do I sign up?!
For, you see, each of the snippets above is a gen-u-wine quote from Charles' latest bête noire, Ron Paul himself.
Perhaps the reason for Charles' jihad against Paul is the uncomfortable fact that but for one issue (the "war" on "terror"), his positions are indistinguishable from those of most lizards.
As for this blog, I can't speak for the others who post here, but my own personal opinion of Dr. Paul is nicely encapsulated here.
