Ron Paul 'Stood with Reagan,' but not long | iWatch News

This is a very informative article. "Paul told the Los Angeles Times in 1988, 'I want to totally disassociate myself from the Reagan Administration.'" It appears there's plenty of word-gaming going on and selective memory/false propaganda. When will a completely honest leader step up? We have not seen one yet, including Ron Paul! So, don't kid yourselves.

In a  letter of resignation  to the chairman of the Republican National Committee in the spring of 1987, Paul wrote that "Reagan and the Republican Party have given us skyrocketing deficits, massive monetary inflation, indiscriminate military spending, irrational and unconstitutional foreign policy, zooming foreign aid, the exaltation of international banking and the attack on our personal liberties and privacies." Paul  ran for president on the Libertarian ticket in 1988.

So, why is he afraid to stand by his 1987 statement? Ron Paul obviously hasn't change one iota in terms of ideology. The reason he's afraid is because he wants the Reaganites' votes right now. That's weak! That's not the kind of leadership the US and world needs. Where are the real leaders?

What did Ron Paul say about all of this? He said Reagan's message was great but that Reagan in the 1980's spent too much and the like. Ron Paul handled it with kid gloves rather than calling Reagan a total hypocrite and political operator/manipulator. That's what I mean.

He was afraid of alienating Reagan worshipers: dupes. It's not being forthright enough.

Ron Paul told the audience in a pleading voice that they needed to be honest about it. Well then, be honest, even if it means losing votes and not becoming the President of a bunch of deniers.

Let's not forget Iran-Contra. Reagan's denial about having known about it and authorizing it was not credible. Technically, he should have been impeached and removed for that alone.

Ronald Reagan announced his candidacy where it would send a strong racist signal to then current and former Dixiecrats.

Reagan chose his dates for major events after consulting Hollywood-type astrologers.

There's still the issue of the October Surprise where it is strongly suggested that to ruin Jimmy Carter's chances for reelection, Reagan's campaign (via Henry Kissinger) made a secret deal with Iran {part of a secret arms deal through the Zionists (Israel)} to hold the American hostages until Reagan was elected.

The list of negatives about Ronald Reagan is extremely long. He even called for a "bloodbath" on college campuses where college students were protesting the Vietnam War, which was based upon the lie of the Gulf of Tonkin, among many other lies.

Ron Paul doesn't want to be pressed on these historical aspects concerning Ronald Reagan because the Republican Party has stupidly attempted to elevate Reagan to the level of Franklin Roosevelt (who was far from perfect, especially on foreign affairs, but who was a far sight better than Ronald Reagan particularly domestically).
