    Even GOP conservative Ron Paul draws Tea Party opposition | News for Dallas, Texas | Dallas Morning News | Washington News

    :lol: Oh this is rich. The amount of irony from this is too good to be true. :rofl:

    DogBert i hope this isn't a true and common sentiment that runs across the TEA lines that they don't like ron paul because of his war stance. I dont really like his stance in the debates as I though it was dangerous but he is true to his libertarian values and walks the TEA walk almost every time he opens his mouth.

    This would be more idiotic than having a $500/seat function to pay a speaker like palin to give a speech.

    IMO.

    No real Tea Party member would support never-ending foreign interventions. If they do,they're not real Tea Partiers. The name Tea Party may have been hijacked a bit.

    I hope not either, but there's not much else reasoning. The guy is The Godfather of the Tea Party movement. This is like turning around in the middle of a battle and shooting at your own general.

    It just doesn't make sense to me as a person who has been to a few tea party events. Ron Paul embodies almost every value I thought the TEA parties stood for.

    it may be too good to be true

    I think Dr. Paul will be ok in the end. A real Tea Partier would have nothing but respect for the good doctor. He'll come out on top.

    I supported our going in to remove saddam at the time we did it but not the nation building that followed.

    I had my own personal reasons (Nope not WMD....an uncle who patrolled no fly zone was almost killed by AA a few times) which were that I was angry he was violating our cease fire agreement in the 90's and we did nothing about it but play pattycakes.

    I also supported eliminating the training camps in AFG...but again...like iraq...not the nation building.

    This boggles my mind still.....i need to look into this link more dogbert, if this is true I have a bad feeling about the direction of the TEA movement.

    like i was saying I may have disagreed with what he was saying in regards to iraq during the presidential debate but I think his fiscal ideas rock.
