AYN RAND HAS DIED AGAIN  3:01 pm April 22, 2011

Ron Paul’s Son Hates Liberty: Not Running For Senate

by Jack Stuef

Instead of the gold standard, Dr. Robert Paul probably wants to let the U.S. go on the fetus standard, because he refuses to do anything about it.

“I’m honored that people think I’m ready to run, but I think they want me to run because I’m related to Ron Paul,” said Paul, who has a family medical practice in Benbrook and lives in Fort Worth. “I think the biggest thing I have that’s similar to my dad is that I’m honest. [...]

“My dad told us something like, ‘If you understand liberty, and understand what the problems are, and you do nothing, then you are part of the problem,’” he said. “I’m never going to say never.”

Robert Paul is part of the problem, for now, at least. And that problem is our government doesn’t have enough people named “Paul” who vote no on everything and refuse to work on legislation. [Fort Worth Star-Telegram]

And remember… If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

a total falling-out

angryclownspawn April 22, 2011 at 3:07 pm

Honest to God, I wish more Pauls hated liberty.

Mumbletypeg April 22, 2011 at 3:10 pm

our government doesn’t have enough people named “Paul”

I don't feel the Paul's have enough family members named "R____."

CapnFatback April 22, 2011 at 3:13 pm

Let's ask cousin RuPaul if she agrees.

OOH! RUPAUL FOR SENATOR! SHE'S NOT PART OF THE PROBLEM; SHE'S PART OF THE TRANSFORMATION!

TX_Bluebonnets April 22, 2011 at 3:20 pm

There's a million-member Facebook campaign in that. Who's going to start it?

DaRooster April 22, 2011 at 4:08 pm

Fuck Facebook!

(Sorry, just watched Funny People last night, had to say it sometime today)

horsedreamer_1 April 22, 2011 at 3:12 pm

Bimbo &/or Mimbo eruption in 3… 2…

slithytoves April 22, 2011 at 3:20 pm

If you understand liberty, then you know the problem is, well, liberty.

Callyson April 22, 2011 at 3:20 pm

“I think the biggest thing I have that’s similar to my dad is that I’m honest."
Oh, how I wish I could erase from my dirty mind my speculation about what the *smallest* think he has that is similar to his dad…

Bonzos_Bed_Time April 22, 2011 at 3:26 pm

Sense of humor?

Limeylizzie April 22, 2011 at 4:02 pm

No kidding, all of those Pauls seem like they take themselves very seriously.

DaRooster April 22, 2011 at 4:10 pm

That's 'cuz they are so awesome. Gotta stay focused to stay awesome…

OK, wtf? Really? If there's a problem, contact me off list. You have my email. If it's sabotage, let me know. I'm not here all the time, as living in Texas requires constant interaction with the physical environment to avoid getting attacked by Rick Perry's hair.

Bonzos_Bed_Time April 22, 2011 at 3:27 pm

Why do you hate freedom?

deanbooth April 22, 2011 at 3:28 pm

Must be a new filter. This morning I couldn't enter Trig's problem (as Todd Palin once said).

TX_Bluebonnets April 22, 2011 at 3:33 pm

I said something about Pauly Shore. I swear.

Callyson April 22, 2011 at 4:47 pm

This happened to me a couple of times too. I think there is some weird glitch in Wonkette's system.

onemoretime79 April 22, 2011 at 5:02 pm

I see your comment. And I raise you a million burning acres of global climate change denying Texans.

If your'e in Austin pls accept my sincere apology.

OkieDokieDog April 22, 2011 at 3:23 pm

Does this mean he's skipping over that sissy Senate job and going straight for POTUS?

Cat_Damon April 22, 2011 at 3:34 pm

You know who else never says never? Justin Bieber. Bieber for Senate… err.. Parliament… err… mountie… 2030!

horsedreamer_1 April 22, 2011 at 4:37 pm

If he were to become a U.S. citizen, he could run for Senate. But anyway, he still has a dozen or so years before he's eligible, by age.

pinkocommi April 22, 2011 at 3:44 pm

‘If you understand liberty, and understand what the problems are, . . . "

I wonder if the Pauls' understand that their supporters are stupid, racist asswipes?

JustPixelz April 22, 2011 at 4:06 pm

Some of their supporters have deeply held, nuanced beliefs in the whatever-the-fuck Ayn Rand wrote in "Atlas Shrugged". I never read it myself, but I understand the basic idea is "screw thy neighbor". Also, morality is an impediment to progress. Who among them doesn't think the world would be a better place of all the untermensch were moved away — concentrated, as it were — in a more appropriate place.

But they want to legalize marijuana, which is suppose to negate all the bad things that they stand for.

Lucidamente1 April 22, 2011 at 3:47 pm

Ron, Rand, Robert: what's with the letter R?

poncho_pilot April 22, 2011 at 3:57 pm

they're all pirates.

Limeylizzie April 22, 2011 at 4:03 pm

That was excellent.

poncho_pilot April 22, 2011 at 4:15 pm

"In days of old, when ships were bold
Just like the men who sailed them
and if they showed us disrespect
we'd tie them up and flail them
often men of low degree
and often men of steel
who'd make you walk the plank alone
or haul you 'round the keel

hoist the Jolly Roger!
hoist the Jolly Roger!
hoist the Jolly Roger!
it's your money that we want
and your money we shall have!"

Lucidamente1 April 22, 2011 at 4:15 pm

Arrrrgreed!

Rosie_Scenario April 22, 2011 at 3:58 pm

And what about Mrs. Paul? Mmmmmm. Fish sticks.

Limeylizzie April 22, 2011 at 4:03 pm

More like a bearded clam

JustPixelz April 22, 2011 at 4:00 pm

It's always uplifting to see someone get out of the human sink-hole of medicine for a rewarding and satisfying career in politics.

BornInATrailer April 22, 2011 at 4:02 pm

His name was Robert Paul (son).

BZ1 April 22, 2011 at 4:08 pm

At least one of the Cartwright clan has a brain…

__kth__ April 22, 2011 at 4:19 pm

If Ron's other son Billy Paul ran for the Senate, I would totally vote for him.

Guppy06 April 22, 2011 at 5:49 pm

Another "doctor?" Are we talking about a real doctor, or the Rand Paul kind?

zhubajie April 25, 2011 at 8:24 am

Maybe homeopath or chiropractor. Or, since this is Texass, faith-healer!

Jukesgrrl April 22, 2011 at 8:57 pm

Are we still allowed to call them Paultards, or is that another banned word?

ttommyunger April 22, 2011 at 9:59 pm

he said. “I’m never going to say never.” Ummm, dickwad, you just said ne…..oh fuck it!

DustBowlBlues April 23, 2011 at 12:00 am

I just read a CSMonitor article about the Atlas Shrugged movie. Maybe this is the thread to ask this: should I be proud or ashamed that I've never read it and have no idea what you guys are talking about when you say "Go Galt?"

Or all the other wonkeratti making it up, too, and none of us have read that long piece of shit because the biggest dicks on the planet like it. Was Galt an architect? Because Rand was big with the Frank Lloyd Wright cult.

carlgt1 April 23, 2011 at 12:46 pm

obviously the best "bits" of Ron Paul ended up on the sheets & walls of his boring $325K house (now for sale)
