RON PAUL on Left and the Right Demagogue Mosque, Islam

Is the controversy over building a mosque near ground zero a grand distraction or a grand opportunity? Or is it, once again, grandiose demagoguery?


It has been said, "Nero fiddled while Rome burned." Are we not overly preoccupied with this controversy, now being used in various ways by grandstanding politicians? It looks to me like the politicians are "fiddling while the economy burns."

The debate should have provided the conservative defenders of property rights with a perfect example of how the right to own property also protects the 1st Amendment rights of assembly and religion by supporting the building of the mosque.

Instead, we hear lip service given to the property rights position while demanding that the need to be "sensitive" requires an all-out assault on the building of a mosque, several blocks from "ground zero."

  1. Politicians all make the claim they will defend the constitution. But only a handfull, when the opportunity presents itself, do so consistantly.

    While we will piss and moan about it, come every other Nov. we will again re-elect the same crap.
    Through our own vote we have taught them that we will settle for lousy representation.

    It's sad, Americans claim to love freedom, but too few, fully understand what freedom is.
    The truth is the vast majority only favor their version of freedom.

    Someone smarter than I said it this way;
    "You can protect your liberties in this world only by protecting the other man's freedom. You can be free only if I am free."
    Clarence S. Darrow (1857-1938) American lawyer
