Ron Paul - Enemy of the People - Rivero doesn't notice

Paul Paul said social programs -- medical care and other benefits -- have pushed Greece to the edge, and the United States should take note.

"The big message there is the fact that the people who are seeing they are losing their benefits and their free medical care and all, are rioting in the streets," Paul said. "That is the problem, and we are not immune from that."


Catch that?

Ron Paul says social programs pushed Greece 'to the edge'. America should take note, he says. And cut them right back, obviously. But then the people who benefit from those social programs will 'riot in the streets'.....and 'that is the problem' he says.

So, he's admitting his program to attack 'benefits and medical care' will lead to 'rioting in the streets'. The problem for Ron is not the sharp attack on Greek conditions but the rioting in response. Right.....

Although Rivero headlines this story about Ron Paul, he's also posting stories about the riots in Athens. Bit difficult to endorse both, isn't it?

Here's Rivero, standing at the barricades fighting for the things he supports Ron Paul for opposing.

Hilariously even after posting the Ron Paul stuff Rivero can still posture as a man of the people standing at the barricades -

Incredible, no?

I can't help mentioning that Ron Paul is quoted giving an incredibly stupid answer to 'solving the deficit':
The Texan is no fan of the Federal Reserve and suggested Monday the United States should eliminate the Fed as a way to reduce the deficit.

"We owe, like, $1.6 trillion because the Federal Reserve bought that debt, so we have to work hard to pay the interest to the Federal Reserve," Paul said. "We don't, I mean, they're nobody; why do we have to pay them off?"

However, the Fed returns the interest earned on those holdings to the federal government. Last year, the Fed sent $79 billion to the Treasury.
The Fed bought the debt, and "we have to pay interest on it"? Well, that's fine because the Fed is "we" pays the interest it earns to the US Gov Treasury. DUH!!!

He's not that stupid, is he? How about his supporters?
