This gives me another example of why I have been afraid of Ron Paul.

So, in other words....Chris Kyle deserved it?

RON PAUL ACCOUNT TWEETS SHOCK MESSAGE ABOUT FORMER SEAL SNIPERíS DEATH

"Chris Kyle's death seems to confirm that "he who lives by the sword dies by the sword." Treating PTSD at a firing range doesn't make sense'

...hmmmmm...it kind of makes sence...I agree that Chris Kyle was an exceptional soldier but soldiers carry a burden that most of us will never understand...Ron Paul can't relate to a soldier and just like the white guy that tries to defend blacks, he's better off not saying a thing when he can't relate...I just hope that if there is a god he takes care of another soldier!...

This is going to be interesting. I find Paul's remarks reprehensible. but not surprising. The only thing i'm surprised about is that he is demented enough to tweet it outloud.

I've always said I think he's a loon. This is pretty compelling evidence.

Well, it makes sense. The soldier with Kyle had PTSD and Kyle thought it would be a good idea to take him to a firing range? Not the smartest decision in the world.

I for one wouldn't feel comfortable around someone with a mental disorder and a gun, could it be I'm paranoid?

I can't say he's a nut bar because of those remarks. I mean taking the guy to a firing range IS major stoopid.

So basically, he quoted Jesus in the first sentence and pointed out the stupidity of taking a man with PTSD to a firing range.

The only problem I see with the tweet is the timing.

Eh, Twitter is just another necessary part of social media interaction these days, unfortunately.

Why is it necessary? My wife and I do just fine without it and Facebook too.

It's necessary for social media. If you don't participate in social media, you're exempt.

But in 2013 America, if you want to get a message out effectively, you need Twitter and Facebook.

Not much really, other than the isolationism and his position on islamofascists having nukes (that's pretty fucking looney). Something about his demeanor just rubs me the wrong way. Plus, I don't really believe he would do much to promote the Constitutional principles he "advocates", since he is nothing more than another career politician who has led a very unremarkable career.

It's Non-Interventionism, not Isolationism. Big difference.

Well, on that last part I disagree. He is remarkable in that he has captured the attention of a hard and fast segment of the American social fabric, even if they don't vote. I suspect he is going to get more study from political scientists than Barrack Obama in the coming years.

Paul is an icon, representing a weird but significant segment of the population. What you consider looney is mainstream for many.......and I happen to agree that the US has to pull back and be less involved in international affairs.

You guys have fucked things up well enough thank you...two wars for longer than ten years each?

I dont necessarily disagree, but please don't lump me in with, "you guys". :wink:

If RP is unelectable, and his followers don't vote, what useful purpose has he served?

Why must libs play these games of semantics? You are highlighting a distinction without a difference.

All of our foreign policy problems are blowback. Our current foreign policy is insane, non interventionism is the answer.

It's not semantics, they are two completely different philosophies.

Probably, but he's still gonna get shit for it though.

I don't care about it either way.
