Ron Paul on the Park51 Community Center

Ron Paul on the Park51 Community Center Demagogues:

 “It is repeatedly said that 64% of the people, after listening to the
political demagogues, don’t want the mosque to be built. What would we
do if 75% of the people insist that no more Catholic churches be built in New York City? The point being is that majorities can become
oppressors of minority rights as well as individual dictators.
Statistics of support is irrelevant when it comes to the purpose of
government in a free society—protecting liberty."

At least he's consistent, unlike the vast majority of fake conservatives parading around on this issue. And although Paul is halfway insane on some issues, he does show where there could be a lot of common ground between real, actual conservatives and real liberals--the common ground being a respect for the constitution (and also that the Bush Neocons were/are evil incarnate).

So, will big-government Republicans listen to Ron Paul, or will they continue to listen to the likes of Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich? 


Yeah, afraid you're probably right.
