Ron and Rand Paul are Dead Wrong

Son, Ron Paul brings an interesting perspective to the political conversation.  He is wrong, Dead Wrong.  Ron Paul does not understand the process of government. He does understand that there are serious problems with the manner in which our present Federal Government is being run.  But that alone does not make him correct. I think […]

Ronald Reagan and Ron Paul on Government

These are the oversimplified ideas of orators hoping to get elected. Ronald Reagan on Big Government: Ron Paul on Big Government:

Ron Paul and thefiresidepost.com

Son, One writer on our magazine staff has contributed twelve articles on Ron Paul. This writer does not agree with Ron Paul and has been open and honest in his appraisal. But the Ron Paul supporters have been belligerent and mean spirited in their attacks. The Editorial Board of thefiresidepost.com have graciously agreed to allow […]

Republican Debate, 1-29-08

Son, The Republican debate is on CNN tonight. It is being hosted by the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. John McCain, Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, and Mike Huckabee are participating. I missed a few minutes because of a black tie affair that I could not get out of. The question is what about 100 year involvement […]

The Ron Paul Revolution – reports by PBS

Son, This guy, Ron Paul, is something of a phenomenon. He is wildly conservative – while presenting himself as a practical man. The mainstream media has given him no attention – other than to dismiss his candidacy. There is a Ron Paul Revolution. This ten term Congressman has used the modern technology of the internet […]

Ron Paul reports on his campaign

Son, This guy does not quit.  Others have hung it up – perhaps they are more practical.  But there are realities.  Ron Paul continues to raise money.  He continues to win votes.  He is not considered a ‘serious candidate’ by the mainstream media.  And is probably not considered serious by the other Republican Candidates. I […]

Jon Stewart gives pointers to Ron Paul

Son, Ron Paul did the now required appearance on Jon Stewart’s Daily Show. Jon Stewart was not only gracious but offered some sage advice on managing the other candidates during the debates. They had a civil conversation. Mr. Paul presented well – to my surprise. Mr. Paul noted that the other candidates are not very […]

Foreign Policy – Ron Paul is almost right

Son, I am scaring myself. I listen to Ron Paul and find merit in some of what he says. The problem with Ron Paul rests with frequent leaps of logic. He is one of those conspiracy theory folks who sees ghosts in every corner. The problem is there is occasionally a ghost and no one […]

Irvin Rosenfeld on Medical Marijuana

Son, In an effort to present more information I offer this video from Irvin Rosenfeld testifying on the medical benefits of using Marijuana. Mr. Rosenfeld has some multiple congenital bone disease. This issue is one that has been taken out of the court of reason and placed in the court of politics. As anyone who […]

Republican Debate, 1-24-08

Son, Brian Williams is on stage to moderate his biased colleague Tim Russert. The Republicans are at it. These folks are much less inspiring than the Democrats. Is this because I don’t believe that any one of these men will be elected President. Perhaps. At any rate the Republican debate is at times boring. Mike […]

Ron Paul endorses drug addiction

Son, We have comments from Ron Paul supporters that compare laws against marijuana to prohibition against alcohol. These folks, and Ron Paul, fail to understand the trauma of modern drugs. The real sadness is that Ron Paul is a physician – and he seems to turn a blind eye to the problem of a pandemic […]

Ron Paul, Marijuana, Government

Son, Ron Paul takes huge leaps of logic. There is a fundamental problem with his libertarian philosophy. That philosophy ignores the inter-dependence of modern society. Centralized government must take a larger role in a world where individuals States can no longer stand alone – Marijuana crosses the State borders like the wind. No one State […]

Grief – an Emotional Response to the Economy

Son, I am suffering the stock market drop. My portfolio for retirement has been devastated. The emotion is gripping. As I pondered my own reaction I realized that I am suffering a grief response. This is not an academic discussion – people across America are suffering the grief of real loss. So what is Grief? […]

McCain Wins SC, Huckleberry is second

Son, This is an exciting day in Republican politics.  John McCain, my choice among Republicans, has won South Carolina.  South Carolina consistently picks the Republican nominee.  So today is a good day for America. Huckleberry Huckabee continues to show strength – and that represents an awful trend in America.  Huckleberry is a religious fanatic who […]

Romney first, Paul Third – a message is sent

Son, Mitt Romney has won in Nevaadaa.  But Ron Paul was Third.  What does this say?  Does this mean anything going into the future? Romney will toot his horn as winning another Gold Medal – a boring an overused metaphor.  This win does tell us that the Mormons will support this man – even though […]

Republican Debate – 1-10-08

Son, Who are these guys? Where did they come from? John McCain is the only legitimate candidate in this field. Fred Thompson is campaigning for vice-president, hoping to return the position to one of ceremony and afternoon naps. Mike Huckabee is seeking the office of Witty Spiritualist. Rudy Giuliani hopes to be Chief Bomb Sniffer. […]

Ron Paul and inexperienced voters

Son, You gotta give it to Ron Paul – or someone should.  We are seeing huge voter turnout in Iowa and New Hampshire.  What does that mean?  It means that even apathetic folks who have not participated in years are so disgusted with George Bush that they will bother to come out to vote.  The […]

Ron Paul – the Physician Metaphor

Son, Ron Paul is a physician, a doctor, a M. D. Some folks think that qualifies him to be President. He is obviously very intelligent and very well educated. I suspect he knows a thing or two about health care issues. His physician experience is as a flight surgeon in the U. S. Air Force […]

Challenging Sacred Cows of Politics

Son, I am one who attacks Sacred Cows. In that way Ron Paul and I are alike. There is something about the Ron Paul approach that unsettles me. It seems that he quotes obscure sources – fringe sources – sources of questionable repute. Are these sources questionable because they challenge old ideas or because they […]

Ron Paul and Paulaholics attack Lincoln.

Son, Ron Paul is on the telephone with the Morning Joe folks. He is arguing that Lincoln is part of the “Hamiltonians who wanted a strong central government. Why did all other nations get rid of slavery without a civil war.” Asked of Paul, “How long should slavery have gone on? What was Abraham Lincoln […]

Ronald Reagan and Ron Paul

Son, In 1976 Ronald Reagan made a serious run at the Republican nomination for President.  Our country was just emerging from Vietnam, Watergate, and a disgraced presidency.  There are correlations to today. We are embroiled in an unpopular war, White House lackeys are being pardoned for crimes committed on behalf of the administration, and we […]

Ron Paul, leaps of logic

Son, Ron Paul’s candidacy for president is not unusual. Every election draws fringe candidates – candidates who generally focus their energy on single issues, make their splash, and then go away. Ron Paul is different in that he addresses multiple issues – but more importantly – he is actually attracting an audience. This success says […]

Republican CNN YouTube Debate – November 28

Son, A new event is happening in America. The CNN YouTube Presidential Debate. I am skeptical but hopeful. I remember the first televised debate between Kennedy and Nixon in 1960. That event ushered in a new technology – we are seeing another. I’ll try to keep up. A question to Giuliani on Immigration – the […]
