Yea, seriously. And here's a PRINCIPLE for ya, Jonathon: Don't commit acts of aggression against other people.

I still have no idea what Lyndon LaRouche is ever talking about --- yet he has such ardent supporters!

Krohn is trying hard to steal Kludge's "biggest douchebag" title, it seems. ;) lolz

Here's the hypocrisy of that whole discussion. The "young prodigy of conservatism" used the word "principle" many times as the basis for the Republican Party, and yet, he is upset at the most principled Republican in the history of Congress in the 20th century for coming in Third Place in the CPAC straw poll! Are you kidding me?

What's even worse is that the FOX and Friends pundits were so astounded by his answers. I tell you, we truly have become a nation of six-year-olds (as David Cross (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K7aFXRAW7mg) once said).

That kid sounds good on politics. Just like a little parrot isn't he?

He has no idea WTF he is talking about. He has yet to have his first piece of pussy, his first shot of rum, his first joint, or his first line. He knows nothing of principle, nor will he ever know anything of principle until he lives and learns from mistakes in his life.

This shit pisses me off so bad it makes me want to find cause to sue his parents (there may be none, but it would be nice to drag them into court so I can put them under a microscope :rolleyes:).

It's a sad case because this boy's parents obviously keep him in a box watching and listening to neocon news. :mad:

He'll be eligible to go to Iraq soon and fight that war. I bet when that time comes his boots won't follow his mouth in supporting the war against the brown skin folk.

It's really kind of sad that the neoconservatives have stooped to this level.

It's painful to watch him speak because he exaggerates nonsense so much... he did the same with his CPAC speech. It's all rhetoric and hand motions. I'm sure there's tons of RPFers his age that are much more informed on conservative issues.

Sheesh, people, he's fourteen. He has plenty of time to refine his views to be more specifically and clearly focused on freedom. As it was, I didn't hear him say anything anti-freedom; he wasn't talking about moral crusades or the Warfare State.

Indeed, my brother. I call it Inbred Propaganda.

Neocons are so desperate to keep their agenda alive that they have even stooped to brainwashing their own children. It's pathetic. And God Damn Fox for airing this horsecrap. :mad:

Oh hell no! This little boy had a CPAC speech? So pathetic........ :eek:

No wonder Republicans are the laughing stock of the planet. I am truly outraged, not only at the GOP, but also his parents. Damn them, damn them, damn them. We're talking about children here! No wonder the Liberals are gettting over on us! :mad:

There are 14 year olds on this forum and they definitely aren't as cocky and annoying as this kid.

It sounds like he is anti-Ron Paul which is as anti-freedom as I know it this day and age. For him to say it is an upset that the most freedom minded and constitutional abiding politician on the planet comning in 3rd place was an upset speaks volumes to say it politely.

He is being brainwashed. Plain and simple. If he is not being encouraged by his parents then who? What other 14 year old you know would rather watch Fox News than watch cartoons, Saved by the Bell, or Hannah Montana? Give me a fricking break!

This kid has told us things we already know, whether you are a Ron Paul supporter, neocon, or whatever.

In a way it is like watching the end of a South Park episode where the 8 year old kids speak to the entire community of South Park and everyone is "enlightened".

He said it was an upset, not that he was upset. The meaning is completely different, and means he was surprised. There are so many legitimate things out there to get riled up about - that a 14 year old mentions his surprise that Ron Paul came in 3rd doesn't strike me as one of them. Plus, other people might not have mentioned him at all.

It's a matter of semantics. Maybe we see it differently.

Not anymore. The Liberals and Neocons will have you prosecuted and your post here could be used as evidence. Just chill. This brat has a long life ahead of him. He will sooner or later be exposed for the fraud that he is. :cool:

Anyone who didn't watch it: Krohn said Ron Paul and Sarah Palin tied for third place, and that, "That was an upset."

It was ambiguous.


I was a Bush supporter when I was 14. Give him time.

What converted you?

AggieforPaul
03-09-2009, 04:43 AM
What converted me was the infamous Paul-Giuliani exchange. I was already leaning pro war at the time, but only because of the mismanagement, not strictly on principle. When I watched it initially I thought Paul was out of his mind. Then I saw him on CNN the next day explain his reasoning, and I started doing some research and realized he was right. I still had some disagreements, but I found him the most trustworthy candidate available. As time went by, he pretty much convinced me of all his positions.

Are you guys serious? If I say "The Mavericks beating the Lakers would be an upset", does that indicate that a Dallas victory would make me angry? Of course not. He just believed Ron Paul's high finish to be improbable.

Yes, but then he went on say that Mitt Romney or Sarah Palin should be the nominee for 2012.

slacker921
03-09-2009, 06:48 AM
I'm not reacting to whether or not he supports Ron Paul. It's pretty clear that he supports the neoconservative agenda and that means his efforts are against me.

Now, AggieforPaul - can you find a single instance where he said anything (at all) positive about anyone who was at CPAC from Campaign for Liberty? Has he EVER said anything negative about the War on Terror, The Patriot Act, FISA, or the War on Drugs? That gives a broader scope so it's clear that the issue isn't just his dislike for Ron Paul. He doesn't agree with what most of the people here believe in. He agrees with Sarah Palin.

Rangeley
03-09-2009, 07:15 AM
Yes, but then he went on say that Mitt Romney or Sarah Palin should be the nominee for 2012.

And that changes the meaning of the first part? This isn't an issue of semantics or a point of view, saying "it was an upset" does not mean he was upset. Anyone who thinks it does is wrong and just trying real hard to be offended by a 14 year old.

Nuh-uh, fox news and glenn beck are for the win and so is michelle malkin. They have recently undergone and "conversion" and have begun to "change." The chips are starting to fall in our direction.

If they stop their demagoguery and stop playing to the RP support base, it'll be all your fault b/c you weren't grateful enough and failed to adequately grovel back when they were trying to do you a solid. ..And then no one will ever hear the message, but that would probably make you happy, right?

I sware to gawd, some of you just hate success.

The fact that they needed to track down a 14 yr. old just to find someone willing to spout their b.s. is what speaks volumes.

Tell me about it. What this kid says could be said for any ideology. Socialism isn't about the policy, it's the principle. Communism isn't about the policy, it's the principle. Fascism isn't about the policy, it's about the principle. Necoconservatisim isn't about the policy, it's the principle.

If he came up with new ideas on how to fight government tyranny then I would be impressed.
