Mauling Paul
[Feedback, "Paul Mauls," Seth and Linda Soffer and Bill Faust, Nov. 29, 2007] excoriated me for not accepting the Ron Paul campaign's pathetic excuse for the appearance of a racist tirade in Paul's newsletter years ago: that the article was ghostwritten. As much as I hate to point out the obvious, here it is: If a candidate isn't fit to prevent appalling racial statements from appearing under his name, he isn't fit to run the country. I guess the letter writer had a point, though: I can't conclusively prove that Paul was behind that article any more than I can prove his mentions of "banking elites" and the "New World Order" aren't coded references to "Jews" - or that his long-term association with white supremacist groups like Stormfront are the same as endorsements.

What I can prove is that Paul is both a failure to true libertarians. He's opposed to abortion rights and gay marriage and supported the first invasion of the Gulf. And that he's a failure for true liberals. Paul's an eager participant in Bush's sideline domestic policy of deregulating all industry. Like Bush, Paul believes in small government - so small that powerful corporations can take the place of government, with far less public say in their operations and with far less security to the American people.
