As expected, Ron Paul supporters have been excoriating me via email and all over the Internet because I brought up his vote to allow sexual deviants to openly serve in our military in this column. Nothing new. This Ron Paul supporter says I'm "sort of an embarrassment" because of my firm belief that what God says is His word and I will not "set aside" God for any candidate. He was referring to this column I wrote in June 2008.
Every email basically said the same thing: Ron Paul is too important to this country because he's going after the Federal Reserve, as if Ron Paul invented the idea. One indignant female said in her email if it wasn't for Ron Paul, I wouldn't even know about the Federal Reserve and how bad it is for this country. Really?
When I ran for Congress in '94 & '96, that was the key item on my platform: abolishing the Fed, the income tax, getting us out of the communist UN and abolishing unconstitutional cabinets. The first time I ran I changed to the American Independent Party (very conservative) because I knew I couldn't beat Herger the first time as a Republican in the primary even though I had voted Republican since I was 18 years old. I ended up with the highest vote total for any independent in the state for the '94 general election because so many Republicans changed their voter registration to vote for me, but old Waffle Wally "won".
The second time I ran, I went back to the Republican Party. I knew I could beat Herger; his votes for NAFTA and GATT angered a whole lot of his base voters. Independent polling showed me only 5% - 7% behind Herger only three weeks before the primary in March 1996 in the largest county; there were no scandals or last minute revelations. On election night one minute after the polls closed, Herger was announced the winner 86-14 in all ten counties in the district. The numbers were exactly the same the next morning even though counting by electronic voting machines allegedly continued well past midnight. Of course, it didn't help that even though I was legally on the ballot, my name was left off the ballot in the biggest precinct in the largest county; people had to write in my name. It was surreal. When I sent a formal complaint to the Republican Secretary of State, he said sue the state. That would have required thousands of dollars, which I didn't have left in my campaign account. That's when I left the Republican Party and have been an independent voter ever since.
I campaigned for three years in that district on the issues cited above and allegedly lost both times, but that's what electronic voting machines and scanners are for - to steal our elections and keep the band aid pushers in office. Here are a few examples of what was written about me during my run for Congress and a couple of other items from the old dust bin of history. The newspapers in that district sent their least experienced reporters to cover me, so for the most part they accurately reported what I said during interviews and debates.
The incumbent, Waffle Wally Herger, who sold out this country when he voted for NAFTA and GATT, has been the big winner going on 21 years, sitting on his backside collecting a paycheck for doing nothing but proposing more band aids. Some of Herger's supporters tried to make an issue out of my residency because I left California for a few years due to my husband being transferred to Ft. Carson, Colorado, as the Director of Engineering and Housing while he was still a Colonel in the Army. It didn't work. However, with the exception of one small newspaper, all the big ones in that district endorsed "their boy" over me; those are the exact words one editor told me during my "big" interview.
Dozens and dozens of Republican candidates over the years have run on the same platform. Every single one of us from many states allegedly have been defeated during primaries except Ron Paul. But, he's lived in his district for decades and enjoys strong support.
I can't count the number of emails I've received literally screeching we must vote for Ron Paul because he will abolish the Federal Reserve, get rid of the income tax, get us out of the UN and so forth. The only problem being a president in this country has no constitutional authority to do any of those things; Art. II, Sec. II. Not by Executive order or otherwise. The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 was an act passed by the U.S. Congress and only they can abolish it via legislation. While the Sixteenth Amendment was never ratified by enough states, the income tax is enforced using a law that doesn't exist; it also has to be abolished by Congress as well as ending the U.S.'s participation in the UN. If Ron Paul were to be elected, he can encourage his party to pursue those goals or even veto spending bills, but since the "FED" is privately owned and receives no funding from Congress that's a non option.
Besides, what's happening in this country economically is going to send tens of millions of Americans into shock in the near future. Whoever gets elected won't be sworn in until January 2013. What should have been done decades ago will now visit more hell and misery on this country because the "Fed" wasn't abolished. That's why it's so critical states of the Union pass sound money bills, which they haven't except for a watered down version in Utah.
Congressman Paul said this to justify voting to repeal DADT:
"I have received several calls and visits from constituents who, in spite of the heavy investment in their training, have been forced out of the military simply because they were discovered to be homosexual," Paul said Friday. "To me, this seems like an awful waste. Personal behavior that is disruptive should be subject to military discipline regardless of whether the individual is heterosexual or homosexual. But to discharge an otherwise well-trained, professional, and highly skilled member of the military for these reasons is unfortunate and makes no financial sense."
Ron Paul is a pro-life doctor and I have supported him in the past because he is for life, not murdering unborn babies. However, he knows how dangerous fecal sex is and all the diseases associated with sodomy - not to mention the spread of AIDS:
CDC: Homosexual men account for 61% of new HIV infections but only 2% of population
If you read my column, Wait gunny - I have to change my diaper, which many had a problem reading because of the revolting facts regarding "gay sex", it is simply inconsistent for Ron Paul to support such dangerous behavior. For him to continue to repeat sexual deviants are "born that way" is to completely ignore science and proof there is no such thing as a "gay gene".
Second, I have a problem with his logic that repealing DADT will save we the taxpayers money by allowing sexual deviants to remain in the military. For all the reasons I put forth in my gunny and the diaper column, that's a sorry excuse if I ever heard one. If you owned a business, would you hire employees you know in advance are going to cause a problem with the rest of the workforce, cause a huge drain on financial resources (in this case health care) and lower morale? As I have written so many times: Our military is all volunteer. When individuals enlist, they know the rules up front. Prior to DADT, sexual deviants were not allowed in the military. After Billy Clinton's DADT, sodomites enlisted and then screamed they were being discriminated against for being discharged because of their sexual preferences they knew were taboo. Well, for now, the morally bankrupt have won one battle.
Here is where many libertarians have a problem with me: It's about what God made very clear in the Holy Bible (KJV): sodomy is an abomination. The vile things lesbians do to each other is also a sin. Ron Paul has a different opinion, which he's entitled to:
Being 'gay' a sin? Ron Paul can't say
"Only months after announcing his candidacy for president, Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, declared that he could not judge homosexuality as a sin and affirmed his support for the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy - a rule the Obama administration has indicated it plans to repeal altogether. In an interview on "The American View" on Aug. 25, 2007, host John Lofton asked Paul, "Do you believe [homosexuality] is a sin?"
"I'm not as judgmental about that probably because of my medical background, so I don't see it in that simplistic terms," Paul said. "I think it's a complex issue to decide whether it is sin or other problems with the way people are born. It's, to me, too complex to give an answer as simple as that."
While I don't try to shove my religion in anyone's face, I am a very devout Christian. My relationship with God and Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior is a part of who I am. A belief system scoffed at by many Ron Paul supporters, but I will not put my soul in jeopardy just because people think Ron Paul can somehow magically get rid of the Federal Reserve. It's the same as the myth that Ronald Reagan's carefully scripted photo op challenging Gorbechev to "tear down this wall" bringing about the collapse of communism in the Soviet Union.
I know of one Christian pastor who vigorously endorses Ron Paul in his columns as the only candidate who can save America. That certainly is his choice, but for me, God's word trumps political candidates. Our destiny lies in His hands because the battle we fight is good vs evil and God will only bestow His blessings upon a moral nation.
Like Ron Paul, I want our troops brought home now, today, from the grotesque, constitutional invasions and occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan. Get all out troops out of Pakistan and this latest insanity in Libya. And, while the repeal of DADT would have passed without Ron Paul's vote, to me it was a slap in God's face and giving his support not only to sin, but to endorse the further spreading of diseases because of the type of dangerous sex preferred by sodomites. To do this to our military is unconscionable - especially during those never ending, undeclared "wars" in the Middle East.
When Bill Clinton shoved DADT down America's throat, Republicans were up in arms! They were outraged! It was a huge controversy and the political pounding against a Democrat was relentless.
Ron Paul, a Republican, votes to further cause massive problems in our military by repealing DADT, but gets a free pass from a lot of Republicans, many who identify themselves as Christians.
Now, whose the hypocrite?
One woman in her email even blamed me for the bill: "Why are you laying the blame for this legislation at the feet of Ron Paul? He didn't even sponsor the bill!! The SENATE passed it."
No where in my gunny/ diaper column did I "blame Ron Paul for the bill" and what does the senate passing a bill have to do with it? Ron Paul serves in the house, not the senate. His votes are a matter of public record. She gets my favorite bumper sticker: It's time to pull over and change the air in your head.
I share the same opinion of millions, including Ron Paul, that the "war on drugs" is an insane waste of time and money and is putting "lesser offenders" in prisons where they don't belong. I have and still support his bills to decriminalize industrial hemp. I'm not going to go into it right now in great depth, but it wasn't until rogue elements inside government agencies began running drugs into this country that the problem mushroomed. Many may not remember back in the late '90s when socialist congresswoman, Maxine Waters, began to dig into the CIA's drug running, but if one takes the time to read credible books and articles, you will come to the same conclusion: a gutless Congress has turned a blind eye to it and laundering drug money through the big banks on Wall Street.
Ron Paul wants all drugs legalized (cocaine, heroin, meth, etc). The argument is about money and violence. Again, Ron Paul, is a medical doctor. He knows how highly addictive those three drugs are and if he doesn't know the statistics regarding violence and meth use (especially domestic violence), he needs to get caught up. Addiction to those drugs isn't going to make people stop using them just because they become cheap by making them legal. Addicts will just be able to buy more. Here in the small town where I live, 82 children are in foster care because their parents are druggies. Do people really believe making meth, heroin or cocaine legal and cheap is going to get those addicted off the path of killing themselves in slow motion?
Ron Paul's message of freedom and liberty has been powerful, but, and again this always gets me in trouble: hard core libertarians confuse licentiousness with liberty. (licentiousness: sexually unrestrained; lascivious; libertine; lewd; unrestrained by law or general morality; lawless; immoral; going beyond customary or proper bounds or limits; disregarding rules.) Anyone who claims porn, addiction to drugs like meth, cocaine, heroin and abortion and sodomy are harmless as long as the person "doing it" doesn't hurt someone else is either naive or is ignoring what the aforementioned has done to our country over the past few decades.
And, speaking of socialists: "Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) says he would consider putting the liberal congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) in his Cabinet if he wins the presidency in 2012." I listed 72 members of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) in my Blind Loyalty booklet in back 1996. Both Mad Max Waters and Kucinich are members. No individual who is a socialist should ever be allowed to serve in the U.S. Congress because their political agenda is destroy this republic and they cannot uphold their oath of office. Not to mention, Kucinich has a dangerous bill in the Housewhich clearly shows either his ignorance on the subject or his desire to see the unconstitutional "Federal" Reserve Banking System remain intact - just the opposite of the bill to abolish it introduced by Ron Paul.
Ron Paul, "champion of the Constitution", would consider putting a socialist in his cabinet just because Kucinich is anti-war?
Third is the issue of Ron Paul and Obama/Soetoro's ineligibility over his dual citizenship:

Dear Mr. Sorensen:
Thank you for contacting my office regarding Barack Obama. My staff has researched the issue of his citizenship. Our [emphasis mine] research has led us to conclude that the state of Hawaii has issued a valid birth certificate showing that Barack Obama was born in the United States.
Of course, I remain committed to fighting for limited, constitutional government, and I am actively opposing President Obama's big government agenda. Thank you again for contacting my office. Please feel free to do so in the future with any other questions, comments, or suggestions.
A valid birth certificate? Apparently Ron Paul hasn't seen Worldnetdaily's coverage on that issue for the past year. For someone who has spend nearly four decades defending the U.S. Constitution and on an issue that is tearing this country apart, Dr. Paul believes - despite Obama/Soetoro's own admission he was born with dual citizenship - that Barry was eligible to run. Oh, come on.
For someone who is known as the "champion of the Constitution", what did Ron Paul do on the one day it mattered most to stand up for that document? He sat silent.
On January 9, 2009, despite the massive controversy raging across this country over Obama/Soetoro's citizenship problem, Ron Paul and every single member of Congress made no objection to the electoral college count and a cheap thug from Chicago was declared president of this country. Not one member of Congress, not Michelle Bachmann, not Ron Paul, not one of them had the courage to stand up for the U.S. Constitution that day and stop Obama/Soetoro from pulling off one of the greatest frauds in the history of this country.
How do his supporters defend that? With more excuses and I've heard them all; none of them impress me. I'm tired of hearing it would have been dangerous for him, it would have ruined his career, blah, blah, blah. Standing up for the Constitution isn't about a career, it's about the oath Ron Paul took along with all the other outlaws who were in Congress on that day of infamy. Respect is earned and on that day, I lost a great deal of respect for Ron Paul. I own most of the books he's written and recommend them. Ron Paul has had many critical bills that went no where in Congress, but I supported them. Had I been elected to Congress way back when, I would have introduced them myself. However, that does not excuse his refusal to address such an obvious fraud as Obama/Soetoro's eligibility.
As has been screamed at me in emails from his supporters, no candidate is perfect. So very true. However, for the reasons stated above, I will not vote for him again. Each of us has the right to support and vote for the candidate of our choice. After looking at a candidate's voting record, not 30 second sound bites or speeches, each of us must make the personal decision of who to vote for even if others disagree. As the days progress with the GOP candidates fighting it out, the most common complaint I get in emails is there's no one to vote for, again. Hold your nose and vote or I'm going to vote for one of them to vote against Obama/Soetoro. Anybody but Obama. Another sad state of affairs.
I don't believe the Red in the White House will be the DNC nominee because the lawsuits to keep him off the ballot will hit early next year, mark my words. Barry's handlers know it and the clock is ticking. Despite the worthless gas from the media and pundits from "both sides of the isle", Hillary the Hun, will not run for president in 2012. She recently stated for the third time she will not run for public office again. I believe for health reasons; she is going back to advocacy work to further spread her poison. Who does that leave for the Democrats? One of their old retreads? Who knows, which is why I pay little attention to the meaningless hot air. Sheriff Joe's investigation into Obama/Soetoro (new coverage), I believe, is going to blow this whole thing wide open and hopefully Barry will be indicted and charged for all his crimes, including wire fraud which carries decades in a federal prison if convicted.
You can find the voting record for all the candidates running for president if they have served in public office simply by typing into a search engine, i.e,: Ron Paul on the issues:
Protect all voluntary associations; don't define marriage. (Oct 2007)
Give illegals limbo status: a green card with an asterisk. (Apr 2011)
Sending 12M illegals home won't & shouldn't happen. (Apr 2011)
Yes, Congressman Paul. Let's give a free pass to those who break into our house, steal our jobs and drain precious resources from the states on the backs of hard working Americans by allowing illegals to stay here.
Below are several columns by Kelleigh Nelson on GOP candidates. She isn't just a talented writer, Kelleigh is a meticulous researcher. You may be disappointed, but you will be well informed to make a decision on election day. Let me add one thing Kelleigh didn't cover about Hermann Cain:
Electing Cain would be like putting the fox in the hen house. Cain is a former deputy chairman (1992-94) and chairman (1995-96) of the board of directors to the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. He knows nothing about the disabilities of our monetary system except his support for toxic fiat currency. Cain also stated on his radio show that the "FED" should not be audited. I don't know if he's received enough heat to change his mind. I wouldn't hire someone who worked for my enemy.
His 9-9-9 proposal is more rubbish. 9% corporate tax, 9% income tax and 9% national sales tax, which would finally kill off our economy, although it's just about DOA anyway. Double taxation: 9% sales tax and 9% income tax. Say, there's a good deal! More money for the banking cartel!
If Cain had any inkling of the history of the "income" tax and the intent of those who actually wrote the U.S. Constitution, he wouldn't make such a proposal. Not to mention the fact that every penny extorted by the IRS - every penny - goes to pay down the debt created by the thieves in the Outlaw Congress and what are known as transfer payments: the illegal stealing from us to give to the communist UN (United Nothing), the IMF (International Monetary Fund), World Bank, BIS (Bank of International Settlements). Not a penny taken from your paycheck by the IRS funds a single function of the federal government. Every penny is from borrowing and that's why the "national" debt is almost $15 trillion bux.
Additionally, like all the candidates, he makes statements that have no constitutional basis as it relates to the authority given a president:
Cain: If I win, I'll prosecute CAIR
"Presidential candidate Herman Cain says that if he were in the Oval Office he would prosecute the Council on American-Islamic Relations and other Islamic groups in the U.S. that have been linked to the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas and its parent, the Muslim Brotherhood."
I agree those America hating groups should be investigated. Is Cain running for Attorney General? A president doesn't have the authority to prosecute anyone.
That's the problem with Hermann Cain. No matter how nice or patriotic he is, he either doesn't understand or he chooses (like Romney, Bachmann, Perry, Saint Sarah Palin, Santorum and Huntsman) to ignore how the systems are stealing us blind and continue to propose nothing but more of the same, just packaged with different wrapping.
