No one would EVER suggest on this board "Hey, I thought McCain was a "Christian Fascist" or "fundamentalist". Yet, here we go with "truther" for Paul. What next..."Terrorist" Obama;
Why not "Hey I thought Romney was polygamist?"
I 've just found it amusing that many strong Christian's who supported Bush are now ready to latch on to a candidate who clearly has disdain for their values yet blanket others with simpleton b.s.
And doesn't the word "Truther" mean simply someone who doesn't accept the Government's explanation for 9/11? I'm not saying MIHOP or LIHOP.
But at least we know Dr. Paul wasn't a racist!
as long as we ignore his publication of race baiting and outright bigoted statements, and his signature on articles directed towards the same
McCain,on the other hand, is courting conservative Christians, but does not resemble one.
Short answer: No. Long Answer: Paul doesn't think the 9/11 commission was objective in their findings. That doesn't, by any means, translate into 'Paul thinks the U.S. destroyed the WTC!!!'. If you actually read some published articles and transcripts, Paul is concerned about the objectiveness of a critical part of the investigation, the 'why?'. I don't want to speak for Paul, but from what I've gathered, he fully believes in the conclusions the 9/11 commission provided so far as the 'how they did it' is concerned. However, he's not exactly in lock step with the 9/11 commission as to the motivation of the suicide terrorists. He's pretty sure, as am I, that the 9/11 commission candy coated the reasons our enemies are so motivated. I'm no General, but I've got enough war-fighting experience to know that understanding the 'why' is just as important as knowing the 'how'. If you can counter the 'why' as well as the 'how' at the same time, you are removing both the will and means to fight. According to everyone from Sun Tzu to Patton, that is how you break an enemy.Originally Posted by bicat
However, the troofers latched on to this as if Paul refuted the 'government story'. It's not the case, but some people will believe what they want to believe irregardless of the circumstances.
