Ron Paul On The Civil War

"I think there would have been a better way. Every other major country of the world was able to get rid of slavery without a Civil War. The Civil War wasn't fought over slavery anyway; the war was fought over unifying and making a strong centralized state. You could have paid for all the slaves and released them and there were proposals like that; that's the way the British did it. Every major country in the world got rid of slavery except us; it was not necessary and there were tariffs involved and many other reasons why the Civil War was fought. But if you read Lincoln carefully you'll realize that Lincoln was not the greatest opponent of slavery and if you don't look at that you are denying a very important part of our history."

Go Ron Paul! Go Ron Paul! God Bless Ron Paul! Ron Paul for President 2008!
Ron Paul in CNN debate on June 5, 2007!
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the galleys, heard in the very hall of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor---he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and wears their face and their garment, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation---he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city---he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared.
--- Cicero: orator, statesman, political theorist, lawyer and philosopher of Ancient Rome.

I am happy you included the Orwell quote at the end. Ron Paul, who speaks from a position that is not at all radical, in spite of what mainstream media depicts, is by far the most relevant candidate we have currently and the only one that adamantly refers to the Constitution. Nice blog. I will visit it often.

To the Editor:

Of course Mr. Grimes takes himself very seriously, the United Fascist Union was never intended to be a jest. This is no joke, in a country like this, with the government crashing planes into tall buildings as phony terrorist attacks, then invading countries, like Iraq to steal their oil. What is there to laugh about in these black days?

I honestly don't know what's wrong with you people, making fun of our United Fascist Union, in a dismal world like this. I think a Civil War is coming, I don't see how it can not now that the puppet masters installed this RED @ssh0le Barak Obama as a little tin god over our land.

Jackson Grimes has left the country as he sees no point in continuing the United Fascist Union now that both his idols Benito Mussolini and Saddam Hussien are dead and he's lost the Presidency thrice over.

If a Civil War is coming I believe Jackson Grimes is the only man who can get us through it and save our country from both anarchist riots and tyranny under this p.o.s Obama. Don't you think the REDS will use this narcissistic, 0reo cookie, half-breed, mafia maggot Obama to infame racism and stir the masses to Civil War?

Hail Grimes!
