Ron Paul, Santorum and bin Laden - personal morality their followers admire

If you define ones personal life is what counts, some lightning rod characters fit the bill. No two timing personal ramps or lavish personal expenditure, or extravaganzas. It is rare for people to really practice what they preaches. For them, one's work comes first, but still plenty of time for family matters. Rick Santorum has eight children one died at birth. Ron Paul has five. A picture of Ron Paul with all his relatives is an amazing crowd (see the link below).

When is comes to non-personal maters Ron Paul leaves the pack. The others want to impose what they consider God's Will with what they consider necessary force. Bin Laden had his suicide-bombing followers reigned what he believed to be God's compassion upon the earth. It is not only with extremes in the Christian and Muslim religion, harsh twists of Judaism are trying to dominate Israel as well. Rick Santorum wants to cut food-stamps to fight obesity showing what the considers Christ's tough love on the poor. He considering Ron Paul's foreign policy of, let them do what they want to themselves, unchristian, going against God's mandate for the US to support Israel. Ron Paul said if we don't cut foreign aid then we will have to cut food stamps and I don't think that is the way to go. Santorum thinks Paul opposes what he considers God's tough love. Of course the Mennonites see Christ's message just the opposite of how Santorum sees it.

If a time machine was invented and showed bin Laden a world under a future President Santorum where the loud speakers would blast the national anthem and a public prayer, and anyone who didn't at least stop and bow their heads would be arrested, bin Laden would have mixed feelings rather than conclude his cause was a failure.

Comments   

We are concerned about a recent drift towards vitriol in the RSN Reader comments section. There is a fine line between moderation and censorship. No one likes a harsh or confrontational forum atmosphere. At the same time everyone wants to be able to express themselves freely. We'll start by encouraging good judgment. If that doesn't work we'll have to ramp up the moderation.

General guidelines: Avoid personal attacks on other forum members; Avoid remarks that are ethnically derogatory; Do not advocate violence, or any illegal activity.

Remember that making the world better begins with responsible action.

There is nothing progressive about the Republican Party except, Buddy Roemer, and Huntsman together got less than 1% of the vote in Iowa. Why does the fact that Ron Paul has a few positions progressives agree with, make so many on the Left hate him? I think they actually don't hate Ron Paul but the fact that a few of their friends who they think should no better are praising him.

Therefore I wrote the above article to appeal to some progressives without inadvertently making others furious in the process.

Are there other more low key articles out there on Paul? If not I urge others who like the changes Paul is making nevertheless not overstate their praise.

A proofreader who used to work at a temporary agency suggested several changes to my article. See the following,

Pardon my ignorance of Latin, but Ron Paul must be a very remarkable person to have multiple "maters". Most of us humans have only one biological mater, although the academic graduates among us may also have a scholarly "nourishing mother" ("alma mater").

Although as a committed Malthusian I am opposed to large human families on ecological and ethical grounds, the Pauls seem to have quite a successful group of progeny, showing at least some insight and wisdom in the challenges of parenthood.

To be blunt, I like Ron Paul more than any other person in national political life, with the possible exception of Michelle Obama, whose courageous opposition to her husband's insider wheeler-dealer advisers is just becoming public. I could even possibly vote for Barack Obama if he appointed his wife to be chief of staff.

Sorry, Futhark my English isn't good despite being born here. Could someone traslate what you said or mean?

I assume you've met bin Laden or at least can read arabic so you've read all his writings. To say anything about bin Laden based on US mass media reports or US government reports is to be totally mistaken. All of what is knows in the US by americans who have never met bin Laden or who cannot read his writing in Arabic is a lie and propaganda. Judgments based on lies are bad judgments.

We can make judgements about Paul and Santorum because we can see them speak, read their writings in english and if necessary we can go meet them.

For psychological analyses, stick to people you can appropriately judge. Leave bin Laden alone.

Translators other then police officials are the first person al Qaeda likes to attack. So difficulty in translating Arabic is not only the fault of US prejudice.

I am sure if only from a distance that al Qaeda doesn’t challenge that Allah is compassionate any more than Rick Santorum challenges that Jesus is loving.

Dear Mr or Ms Futhark:

When I google the words in your comment I keep coming up with Michele Makin and Front Page Magazine not Michael Obama, so perhaps your comment is a rouge to get people to google Makin's criticism of Obama

I got a virus so sorry about a belated comment. People have a way when they criticize someone to accidentally insult those who deserve it less. I would like to point to an exception.

I think it might violate the rules to reprint what Brill Street said about Santorum being barely a Catholic because of his disagreements with the Church so please scrawl down to his comment as of 5pm Jan 23 EST # 6 at the following site,

Press camera's were outside of Childrens Hospital in Philadelphia for Santorum to come out from being with his sick daughter, to return to his election schedule but they weren't there. Now he claims it was in an unnamed hospital in Virginia that Bella according to Santorum made a miraculous recovery. I want to say more about Santorum and how he relates to his family. But since so many doing so put their foot in their mouths I won't add anything further.

Over 2000 years ago Jesus or Jesus Christ said and did things that made a real difference. For starters infanticide was legal everywhere now it isn't. The Anabaptist (Mennonites and Quakers) went back to Christianity's original love and pacifism, but during the Revolutionary War the Free Quakers broke away and began participating in the Revolution.

Some strange things happened in the beginning. To me the strangest was that for the first hundreds of years people argued over who he or He was rather than whether or not Jesus performed miracles.

Aristides would be considered an more than average honest politician if as a priest he didn't need to superscribe to higher standards. If any priest had threatened to kill a child if he talked, it would to the major story. But only a small story that a non-priest made such threats.

What is happening to Christianity with the help of Sanatorium has been repeating itself for 2000 years.
