Why Are Ron Paul Supporters So Crazy? August 9, 2007

Posted by fitsnews in 2008 Presidential Primaries.



FITSNews – August 9, 2007 – We haven’t written about Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul yet, probably because he has about as much chance of actually becoming president as we do. Of course that hasn’t stopped a veritable army of his supporters from bombarding us with e-mails asking why we haven’t devoted any ink to his campaign/ movement.

One even berated us vigorously for failing to notice the handwritten “Ron Paul For America” sign heading West on I-126 (like we would drive to that side of the river), and then berated us even more vigorously after we replied that we might consider discussing his candidacy if he stopped using magic markers and bed linens for campaign signs.

We’re sure Dr. Paul is a decent guy, but from everything we can tell his supporters are pretty much the extras from One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest. In fact, we’re pretty sure 99.9% of them were actually foaming at the mouth when they e-mailed us.

Anyway, while the lithium was flowing freely here in the Palmetto State, here’s what Dr. Paul’s website said he was up to in Iowa yesterday:

The day once again began early at 6:00 am with a radio interview by telephone with Andy Peterson, a popular conservative in Cedar Rapids. Luckily, the schedule between 6:30 and 9:00 was clear, affording Dr. Paul a chance for a vigerous (sic) walk, a healthy breakfast and some time alone with his thoughts.

Hmmmm. If we were Ron Paul supporters, now would be the time when we asked for a two-and-a-half hour “moment of silence” to ponder the significance of what took place in Ron Paul’s head during the two-and-a-half hours he was “alone with his thoughts.”

Again, hmmmm. And “amen.”

Look people, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with straitjackets, padded walls and peanut butter & jelly sandwiches (editor’s note: heaven), but Dr. Paul might find his candidacy taken a little bit more seriously if his people dialed it down to, say, five.

And he might want to fill his campaign schedule with something other than introspective walks, or at least refrain from telling us about it if he can’t.

Your wish is our command …

Serenity Now!

4. tony - August 9, 2007

We’re crazy because he’s the first candidate in our lifetime who’s not business as usual.

But don’t worry – I’ll leave you alone. Judging by your alexa raking, most everyone else already leaves you alone.

5. FITSNews - August 9, 2007


Judging by your “alexa raking,” you just made our point.

We knew a girl named Alexa once, and we do enjoy raking (especially in the fall), but other than that we don’t have a f*cking clue what you’re talking about.


P.S. – Those straitjackets come in S, M, L and XL. We can custom order a XXL if you need it.

6. Earl Capps - August 10, 2007

Fits – get him two straigtjackets. He’ll probably make a doody in the first one.

7. An American Whacko - August 10, 2007

An honest man of integrity in the White House would be crazy. I totally agree! Ha ha! Hee hee! to the funny house i go!!!!

8. Reefer - August 10, 2007

it’s the voices in their heads.

9. Local Libertarian - August 10, 2007

That’s fine, Will. So you like the IRS tax code. And you think the federal Department of Education is doing a great job making sure our kids are getting the best education possible. And you like farm subsidies, gun control, and are vehemently pro-life. You also must think we’re doing a great job in Iraq and controlling our borders from illegal immigration.
And, hey, if a guy with terminal cancer wants to smoke some pot because he thinks it helps with the nausea from chemo, we should throw him in prison, right?

Which of Ron Paul’s issues do you disagree with?

If people like Ron Paul start getting elected to office, what would you be able to do for a living? I mean besides running a blog…

10. anonymouse - August 10, 2007

ron paul supporters are quite sarcastic too.

11. An American Whacko - August 10, 2007

The real whackos are those in Washington starting illegal preemptive unnecessary wars, spying on the American people, and spending money they do not have. And for some reason they have no idea how to read the constitution.

12. Charles Wesley Fowler (aka another loon) - August 10, 2007

These guys are good writers and are kind of funny. They seem the type who would be big enough men (?) to eat their words with a great big galss of shut-the-fuck-up if Paul does well in either Iowa or New Hampshire. He polls at 0 to 2% right? I’d assume anything over 10% in either straw poll would earn contrition from these guys … wouldn’t it?

It’s probably the borderline personality talking here, but I’m gonna give them the benefit of the doubt.

Amen LL

14. Locke Mason - August 12, 2007

first of all i don’t think he should be president. i just think he is the only one who still views the republican party in its concept for america. of course, no one would give him a chance but the pathetic other candidates do lend him some credibility. i think if you put someone else in then the underpinning forces will still mine their quarry. it is so troubling to me that we have gotten this far. it is so screwed up right now that untangling it will take a lot of expertise and sound judgement which is like a candle in a hurricane. i am not that pessimistic but am appalled at the current situation. the apathy is so unbelievable and no one is going to stand up for fear of being ostracized.

15. Locke Mason - August 12, 2007

so i got taken. now the ship is going down with the pirates still on board as the jolly roger tattered from the events don’t have a clue of what is next. i always said revenge is not my consideration because i might injure someone who was not really involved or coerced with what occured. it is very troubling though that there is so much secrecy in the unravelling. maybe it is best to hide, i don’t know. but i know that i have worked so hard to figure this out and it is not a happy situation to be in. no cost can be calculated but that is not the point. it is just unbelievable that the trust is so shattered that we can never stand as proud as we once did. maybe i was in a sheltered world but i didn’t think it was so. i am not anyone to be scared of i am just so tired of the test. i have spent a year on this and i have always tried to keep a perspective. maybe there will be a turn around that will benefit all. remember that it is not a war as far as i am concerned. i will not release anything said in confidence. i have kept this under my hat for a long time. thank you to those who were understanding. i believe you are hard pressed on a lot of issues and know that you had a tougher ordeal than mine. honestly, Locke Mason

16. Locke Mason - August 12, 2007

if i hurt alexa i am deeply, deeply sorry. but i couldn’t hold my anger in on something i knew was not right. i am assuming it has to do with ccs in ct barclay. i hope she can forgive my heartless outburst. it was in a moment of true rage about my situation. i can be a real jerk (alexa insert your explicative) when i lose it. sorry. Locke

17. Locke Mason - August 12, 2007

i don’t feel self rightous i don’t feel anything good right now. but i will try to learn from my erroneous mistakes and treat my family better. they have suffered. i don’t know about employment. but i feel i could be an asset to someone who needs some financial ideas. i know i cannot go back to controller because it is no longer a drive for me. maybe statistical analysis but i don’t know where to go. i am open to suggestions if anyone has any advise. thanks, Locke

18. FITSNews - August 12, 2007

Holy Hell, dude.

We’re sure there is somebody somewhere who cares about the time you flipped out and broke your pocket protector at the Computer Fair, but that person is probably your mother.


19. Vanessa - September 26, 2007

you’re a fucking asshole

20. Edward Clayton - September 26, 2007

What a perfectly objectionable cretin you are, FITS, is it?

I have 42 patents under my belt, several of them used in advanced guidance systems employed by JPL and NASA, does that qualify me for a straight jacket? While your words will be little more than deleted bytes, my work will be drifting off to the edges of the galaxy. If that makes you the genius and me the “One Flew Over The Cukoos Nest” cast member, I suppose that will serve as an endorsement of my position. Sometimes the inmates are running the asylum.

We support Ron Paul in large part because the other candidates are such complete liars there is no appreciable way to estimate what they stand for, not to mention the fact that as liberal as America has become, we still aren’t ready for a former mayor of New York who regularly appears in drag.

Do you know what an anachronism is? You should look the word up, you’ll hear people refering to you as one often enough I expect.

21. Ron Paul Supporters Are Crazy, Pt. II « FITSNews For Now - September 26, 2007

[…] aspirant Ron Paul, it’s just that the Texas Congressman and his supporters often seem to be a few scoops short of a full cone. Either that or clad in Swastikas, as our contributing author Corey Hutchins revealed over the […]

22. Adrian - November 5, 2007

To answer your question as to why Ron Paul supporters are so “crazy”, it is not that they are crazy, they are just paying more attention to what is really going on than you are. Three of the biggest reasons we are crazy about getting Dr. Paul the nomination:

1. We do not like the idea of an N.A.U. Mexico, Canada, and the U.S. will merge into an EU style North American Union bureaucracy. New flag, and new currency called the “Amero”. We will lose our Constitution, our Bill of Rights, and our national soverignty. Mind you, there has so far not been one candidate to even acknowledge the existence of the efforts currently underway making this N.A.U. a reality in the near future. Ron Paul strongly opposes the N.A.U. and the NAFTA super highway already under construction in Texas. There are dozens of anti and pro N.A.U. websites please don’t take my word for it, just look it up for yourself. Oh, and don’t forget the mandatory microchips for all.

2. We recognize the fact that the IRS is a fraud and the government has no authority to tax us on the fruits of our labor. So does Ron Paul.

3. We know that we cannot continue to print money to finance undeclared no-win wars all over the world against an enemy that can never die. Printing money is the source of inflation, and is putting us on a collision course with destruction. Ron Paul is the only candidate who wants to bring the troops home, build a strong homeland defense and restore sound money. The other candidates do not even address these issues. They want to continue taxing us and printing money to police the world.

So my question to you is, do you really think the N.A.U. is a good thing? Losing our rights and exporting 40 million American jobs?

Do you think we should allow the government to illegally income tax us?

I just don’t understand how anyone could disagree with Ron Paul once they know the truth.

“Declare war if you want to go to war! Go to war, fight it and win it, but don’t get into it for political reasons or to enforce U.N. resolutions, or to pretend the Iraqi’s were a national threat to us.” -Ron Paul

23. Mechael - November 13, 2007

Mmmmmm… the fear and apathy is palpable… I assure you, you have nothing to be afraid of. Embrace the candidate known as Ron Paul… Your kids will thank you in the future.

He is the only conservative able to beat Hillary. Without him, we will have Hill at the Helm.
