It seems that he had some choice words on Meet The Press for America's greatest president, Abraham Lincoln.
MR. RUSSERT: I was intrigued by your comments about Abe Lincoln. "According to Paul, Abe Lincoln should never have gone to war; there were better ways of getting rid of slavery."
REP. PAUL: Absolutely. Six hundred thousand Americans died in a senseless civil war. No, he shouldn’t have gone, gone to war. He did this just to enhance and get rid of the original intent of the republic. I mean, it was the–that iron, iron fist.
MR. RUSSERT: We’d still have slavery.
REP. PAUL: Oh, come on, Tim. Slavery was phased out in every other country of the world. And the way I’m advising that it should have been done is do like the British empire did. You, you buy the slaves and release them.
Never mind the fact that most of the civilized world thought America's notion of 19th century freedom was a joke while it still held men, women, and children in slavery.
Never mind the fact that insinuating that Abraham Lincoln was a power-hungry dictator is unbelievably prolific in the rhetoric of disenchanted white supremacist confederates.
And never mind the fact that there wasn't a snowball's chance in hell that the grandchildren of the same men who fought for slavery and (later) against integration would 'phase out' slavery. It had to be taken from them - plain and simple. Abraham Lincoln understood that, Lyndon B. Johnson understood that, but not surprisingly, Ron Paul doesn't measure up.
No my friends, Ron Paul isn't just a moronic, pie-in-the-sky, head-up-the-ass, libertarian and presidential candidate for the socially malformed, he also hates Abraham Lincoln and the Emancipation Proclamation. Oh...and the 1964 Civil Rights act too:
MR. RUSSERT: You would vote against the Civil Rights Act if, if it was today?
REP. PAUL: If it were written the same way, where the federal government’s taken over property–has nothing to do with race relations [...]
it has to do with the Constitution and private property rights
So my lovely Paultards, I hate to break it to you. But your candidate is not only assbackwards, but he is way out of the American mainstream and conscience. I shall be laughing heartily at your antics when he gets 8% in Iowa, 5% in New Hampshire, and 5% in every other state. I only pray that he mounts an independent bid so the chuckles can continue.
