The more I think about the hypocrisies of Newt converting to Catholicism for the mistress he divorced his wife to be with because his wife wouldn’t accept his infidelities the dizzier I get. And that is without considering his role in the Clinton impeachment. This is weapons grade hypocrisy. I have to sit down now.

The Anti-Freedom, Anti-Privacy and Anti-Choice pledge signed by Ron Paul

The Susan B. Anthony List’s 2012 Pro-life Presidential Leadership Pledge asks declared presidential candidates to commit to key pro-life goals if elected to the presidency in 2012. While this is by no means a complete list of all pro-life objectives, having a President that actively supports these pro-life aims will keep up the momentum to achieve our ultimate goal of ending abortion in this country.

James O’Keefe won’t let others videotape him

Hypocrisy, O’Keefe is thy middle name: Conservative activist James O’Keefe, who has gained notoriety for his hidden-camera stings of NPR executives, ACORN employees, teacher unions, and CNN reporters, gave a speech to a New Jersey Tea Party …

From James O’Keefe won’t let others videotape him

Of course he won’t let people tape him. He knows how easy it is to edit tape to make it look like people are saying something they aren’t actually saying.

Were they listening when they read the constitution aloud at the start of the congress?

No Constitutional shortcuts. When investigating American citizens, the government must comply with the Constitution, even in national security investigations

Challenging unconstitutional action. If a citizen challenges the government’s use of PATRIOT Act power in a court of law, the case must be expedited to ensure the individual’s rights are upheld.

A total of two House Republicans – Texas’ Ron Paul and North Carolina’s Walter Jones – voted for this, while 234 did not.

Paul Ryan, welfare queen

With his father’s passing, young Paul collected Social Security benefits until age 18, which he put away for college. To make ends meet, Paul’s mother returned to school to study interior design. His siblings were off at college. Ryan remembers this difficult time bringing him and his mother closer.

See how that worked? Congressman Paul Ryan loses his father at age 16, and Social Security steps up to ease the burden. Of course, his mother also received Social Security benefits as his father’s surviving spouse.

Seems like it was such a great hammock for Ryan that he just doesn’t want anyone else to share it.

You have to go back to the 1960s to find any even remotely comparable legitimization of anti-government violence on the left as we have today from Republican elected officials and party candidates, not to mention the chorus of right-wing talk-radio demagogues. It is simply nonsense to assert, as many right-wing commentators and Republican politicians have in the last 48 hours, that “there are extremists on both sides,” and to speak as if political violence is a random natural phenomenon, a meteorite falling from the blue sky. I defy you to point to a single Democratic member of Congress or comparable official or candidate who has used the kind of rhetoric we have been bombarded with for the last two years from the right

I’m getting sick of the false equivalence between what candidate X said and what random youtube poster Y did. Public officials should be held to a higher standard than some random citizen.

Ron Paul’s Pork-Barrel

Rep. Ron Paul vehemently denounced the $410 billion catch-all spending bill approved last week by the House of Representatives.
But although the libertarian-leaning Republican from Lake Jackson cast a vote against the massive spending measure, his fingerprints were on some of the earmarks that helped inflate its cost.
Paul played a role in obtaining 22 earmarks worth $96.1 million, which led the Houston congressional delegation, according to a Houston Chronicle analysis of more than 8,500 congressionally mandated projects inserted into the bill.
