A Hot, But Misguided Girl

Ron Paul Girl – Register Now! – video powered by Metacafe

Yes, the girl is hot. Yes, she speaks well. I could even get past the fact she’s supporting Rep. Ron Paul. But did she really say, “Do they [Republicans] sometimes seemingly start wars for no reason? Yes.”

Forget it. This female is not in touch with reality. It’s only a small step before she spouts tripe like Halliburton and Big Oil conspired with Israel (the Jooooossss!) and convinced President Bush to invade Iraq.

The truth is leading up to the war Saddam’s Iraq acted like it possessed WMD. It wasn’t conspiratorial to conclude the dictator posed a threat in a post-Sep. 11 world. Francis Fukuyama, no shill for President Bush, noted in 2003,

The source of this failure does not lie in the political agenda of this administration. The Bush people are right in saying that their estimates of WMD stockpiles were no different from the conclusions of the Clinton administration. And the latter would say, if asked, that their assessment was drawn from Unscom, the U.N. weapons inspectors who operated in Iraq from 1991-98. The intelligence failure is thus ultimately traceable to Unscom, and deeply embedded in an intelligence process that in the 1990s was biased toward overestimation of threats.

Paul and his anti-war ilk can’t accept this. Claiming conspiracies over institutional failures means Rep. Paul can’t be trusted with the national security of the United States. That is my second-biggest irritation with him. (The biggest being his obnoxious internet supporters.)

In May I wrote,

In the process of looking like a loon his message of limited government and constitutionalism gets lumped in with his kookiness. Because of his wacky views Paul is a lousy spokesman for libertarian ideas. The Anarchy Lew Rockwell crowd thinks the media simply ignores Paul because they fear him. The fact is Paul isn’t a contender for the nomination and he only has entertainment value by waiting to see what wacky thing he says next. Constitutional arguments, long lost from the thoughts of our leaders, will be removed from the political debate for another generation. All because a haze of conspiracy hazes the mind of its spokesman.

A sexy female advocating for Paul doesn’t fix the damage being done to the libertarian/constitutionalist movement.

Well, 70% of the American people want us out of Iraq, include an ever-increasing # of Republicans.

In other words, if the Republican Party chooses to define itself as pro-Iraq and pro-Iran War, it will lose worse in 2008 than it did in 2006, because that pool of voters is shrinking.

There is a lot more to Liv than meets the eye. What meets the eye isnt bad either just trying to make the point that you might want to visit her site to learn a little more about the girl. She grew up in a hell hole, bet you wouldnt of guessed that one. Check her out, she really is a pretty special lady.
I think her website is something like livfilms.com but I could be wrong. If you youtube the ronpaul girl, it has her main page listed. Cheers!

FZappa, opinion polls don’t determine if I think someone should have the responsibility to manage U.S. foreign policy.

dw, Liv may have a wonderful story. I try to keep an open mind about people, but leaning towards conspiracy is a red flag to me.

I must have missed something on the conspiracy part? Not sure what your talking about there.

I thought it was the Democrats that got us into wars. She obviously needs to spend some time with Bob Dole – with or without his Viagra.

I agree that “Do they [Republicans] sometimes seemingly start wars for no reason?” is a poor choice of words because there were reasons for starting this war…reasons that were irrational and reckless.

I disagree with your use of Francis Fukuyama, especially “[t]he source of this failure does not lie in the political agenda of this administration.”

The political agenda of the Bush administration caused the “institutional failures” (as you describe).

The Bush administration seized upon the American public’s fear from 9/11 to build up support for an invasion of Iraq when a lot of non-partisan experts were telling the White House that it would be mistake. Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11, yet the White House decided to divert resources from Afghanistan to invade Iraq.

Yet the Bush administration went ahead with the invasion plans because it would enhance George W. Bush status as a wartime president and GOP as the faithful wartime party. Remember the flight suit stunt and the infamous “Mission Accomplished” banner?

Conspiracy…no, but miguided political agenda…yes.

The truth is leading up to the war Saddam’s Iraq acted like it possessed WMD.

Right, except for the part where Saddam produced thousands of pages documenting the disposition of his chemical weapons (something the United States can’t completely do, incidentally) and then opened his country to weapons inspectors.

But conservatives don’t remember any of that stuff, do they? It’s astounding that, years after every single justification for the Iraq war has proven to have been a deliberate falsehood, anybody thinks what she just said is in the least bit contentious.

*cough*bullshit*cough*

Ah, revisionist history. Good stuff, Sean.

Yes she is recalling the time when the Republicans got us into World War 1 & World War 2 & Viet Nam & Korea & Kosovo…

Oh wait…

Um, Fred? Relevence?

Of course, there’s the fact that the weapons inspectors weren’t allowed to, you know–inspect anything. But carry on, boys.

Polls show that the majority of Jews in America want the Iraq War to end. According to your reasoning, they must think they’re conspiring against themselves.

So aside from accusing people of anti-semitism, do you have an argument as to why we should ever trust neocons again, seeing that they’ve been wrong about everything:

‘Osama bin Laden, catching him is our number one priority!’

‘WMDs in Iraq!’

‘It’ll be a cakewalk!’

‘Greeted with flowers!’

‘Mission accomplished!’

‘We can pay for the occupation with the oil!’

‘There’s no civil war!’

The war is costing $12 billion a month, which is $40 a month from every man, woman, and child in America — which is $40 a month, $480 a year from you personally. When do you catch on that the neocons are just a bunch of BSers who are killing lots of innocent people and robbing you blind?

If they truly want to protect America from terrorist infiltration, why are they always dragging their feet about guarding the US border? When you find that you can’t answer that question, maybe the scales will fall from your eyes.

Joe, no according to my reasoning wacked-out Paul supporters think the Jews are conspiring against themselves. I only people I’m accusing of antisemitism are those who think a cabal of Jews planned Sep. 11 as an excuse to make money off wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Occam’s razor deals well with that.

“Do they [Republicans] sometimes seemingly start wars for no reason? Yes.”

It sounds like maybe you don’t understand what “seemingly” and “sometimes” mean.

Of course, there’s the fact that the weapons inspectors weren’t allowed to, you know–inspect anything.

Sure, they weren’t able to inspect anything – the United States pulled the inspectors out in April ahead of the planned invasion. It certainly wasn’t anything Saddam was doing; all the inspectors agreed that they were getting full access and cooperation.

Remember?
