It’s somewhat distressing that the most sensible Republican on Iraq is also the most batshit insane candidate in either party on basically every other issue. I mean, everyone always knew that Ron Paul’s supporters are, for the most part, paranoid conspiracy theorists, the kind who go off the grid to protect their house from teh Black Helicopters, teh Trilateral Commission, and teh Council on Foreign Relations (think tanks haunt my dreams too, fellas). But I had held out hope that Paul himself was a little more sensible. I guess not:
I don’t need to tell you that our American way of life is under attack. We see it all around us — every day — and it is up to us to save it.
The world’s elites are busy forming a North American Union. If they are successful, as they were in forming the European Union, the good ‘ol USA will only be a memory. We can’t let that happen.
The UN also wants to confiscate our firearms and impose a global tax. The UN elites want to control the world’s oceans with the Law of the Sea Treaty. And they want to use our military to police the world.
That’s Paul, in a handwritten fundraising letter to supporters. Unabomber-esque indeed.
