Human Events Endorses Fred

Real conservatives vote for Fred. That would be a good T-Shirt idea I think. If you don’t believe me, just read about his positions on his website. So far, the National Right to Life has endorsed him. And now Human Events, the weekly conservative newspaper has endorsed him.

    Fred’s no good. He’s a CFR member. That’s a DQ for me.

    But that’s my opinion…
    🙂

  2. Rev. Eric J Brown says:

    Just repent of your love of big government and support Ron Paul

  3. Pastor Beisel says:

    NOt sure what you mean by that. Fred’s not big government. He’s a federalist. Ever seen his website and listened to his videos?

    I think Ron Paul’s isolationism is utterly irresponsible given the fanatical attitudes of Middle-Eastern Terrorists towards America. He completely ignores the record of terrorist attacks over the last 20+ years and makes the sweeping assertion that it was our fault we got attacked on 9/11. What nonsense! I am against isolationism, and thus I am not for Ron Paul. Sorry.

  4. Rev. Eric J Brown says:

    It’s not isolationism if you are willing to trade – just no troops or aid. Get out of their hair. You are a preacher – it’s easy to preach against an “evil” if it’s right there, but if it’s not present in your community, how do you get people riled up.

    Frankly, if we had foreign troops on our soil, we’d be rather ticked too. If they established a state in the midst of our country, we’d be ticked as well. America shouldn’t be playing the world’s policeman, or step-father.

  5. Pastor Beisel says:

    I agree with you that the U.S. should not treat every other country as its “step-son.” I’m not saying Ron Paul doesn’t have some good ideas, but on this issue, I think he is wrong. I agree with those who argue that we cannot just pretend like terrorism doesn’t exist. I would rather have us fighting on foreign soil, than on our own.

    The U.S. should support other countries that want to be free societies, not fear societies. That does not mean that they must adopt our way of governing, but it does mean that the people should be allowed the right to dissent without fearing getting their head chopped off.

    And Ron Paul, I am afraid, does not understand the nature of radical Islam (I should say fundamentalist Islam). It is decidedly anti-Christian, and sees the only option for non-Muslims as submitting to the humiliating Muslim rule.

    Pastor Beisel is right we should not stand by and watch these people in the Middle East get killed by terrorists. Helping these people is not like being a “step-father” or the “world’s policeman” it is standing up for these people and doing what NEEDS TO BE DONE. Also these people over in Iraq and the rest of the Middle East did not have the means to help themselves get out of their former dictator/ “president” (if you could call him a president which you couldn’t) Sadaam.
    These people are not “ticked” about us being in their country as Rev. Brown so eloquently put it they are extremely thankful that we helped them.
    That’s all I have to say.

    Real GOP conservatives vote for Duncan Hunter … so why is Hunter so far down in the polls?

    … hmm.

    Fred Thompson? Excepting Hunter, Thompson as acceptable to me as any of the others.

    Ron Paul? Ack! Half-right, and half-looney. In my opinion.

    Did anyone notice that a significant number of those identified as evangelicals voted for Romney in Michigan? I’m not sure what to say abou that.

  8. Lawrence says:

    One of biggest problems dealing with terrorists, especially Arab-Muslim, is one of culture.

    Our culture views war as a weakness and diplomacy as strength. They view diplomacy as weakness and war as strength.

    The issue here is one of respect, not one of liking each other.

    And we just have to accept the fact they will never come to like us. They will however deign to respect us if we defeat them in combat.

    Their idea of peace is where the strong defeat the weak and subject the defeated to the laws prescribed by the strong.

    God had it right when he told the Jews to utterly defeat certain enemies in and by armed combat.

    Pacifism and diplomacy is great, but sometimes it is also foolish.

    Certainly we would not think of comparing direct revelation of God to today’s “War on terra.”

  10. Lawrence says:

    And if I am not clear:

    If we defeat them in combat, we gain their respect. If we avoid combat, then they view us as wimps to be manipulated and used.

    So what is our President doing right now? Marching arm in arm with Arab kings, giving them what they want (military weapons and technology) for nothing more than their mere alliance under the circumstance. Looking all the while to them like a trained chimp on a leash doing the bidding of (or being bought off by) the Arab kings.

    Yes, I support President Bush in this war on Islamic Terrorism. But I’m not foolish enough to overlook or condone his mistakes.

    My point is, the last thing we need in our next president is someone who appears weak in the eyes of these same enemies. If we can’t defend ourselves against terrorist half a world away, we will never be able to handle the bigger social and economic problems we face.

    Maybe God is teaching us a lesson in all this?

  11. Lawrence says:

    Certainly we would not think of comparing direct revelation of God to today’s “War on terra.”

    “terra” vs “terror”? I think not a slip of the fingers on they keys?

    But no, I did not intend to covey thay our wars now are in any way equitable with God instructions He articulated to us through the Bible.

    I’m pointing out that defeating our enemies isn’t in and of itself evil or wrong. Even though our politically correct society paints it as such.

    Fred’s out of the race now.

    Where does Beisel’s support go now?
