    So I suppose we should look to you as the next Michael Richrds?

    If you really wanted an interview, I could have made it happen. Apparantly, though, you never really wanted one.

    Which is just as well, Eric. I don’t think you could keep up with the man.

    Congratuations on your instant loss of credibility for this ‘sucker job’.

  2. Rick Day says:

    Oh, and this feeble attempt to draw Paul supporters to this site to, what – inflate your blog numbers to shag higher ad revenue, or prove to you Nervous Nancy’s that RP is for real?

    I doubt either will work.

    Poof!

    That was my hope that Erick had seen the light and decided to rise above being a lapdog for the Republican Party establishment.

    With the coming GOP wipeout, Redstate will become a Slate wanna-be and Erick will be the pouting Katrina Van Denheuval.

    Such an insulting treatment of the ONE GOP candidate generating excitement and the only one who can hold, attract independents and even Democrats, confirms Erick’s allegiance to those who have destroyed the GOP, probably for decades to come.

    Being courted by the GOP establishment has gone to Erick’s head, but those courtiers are about to be flushed down the toilet bowl of history.

    Jeff,

    Thanks. I have been thinking about it.

    Actually, I do not understand why Ron Paul is running. The financial imbalances created under Bush are so great that there are bound to be years of reckoning and it is increasingly clear that the chickens will come home to roost during the next administration.

    Dr. Paul is the ONE Republican in Congress who honored the Contract with America and the one man in Congress to constantly decry the financial lunacy of the GOP control of government.

    He is probably the one man who could steer the USA through the coming financial meltdown.

    For all his competence and adherence to PRINCIPLE, it is as the Reaganite Vic Gold says, he is one of two candidates speaking the truth and both are being labeled kooks.

    When it comes to the point that men of honor, knowledge, and PRINCIPLE are so denigrated, America is lost.

    Poof….Erick went from being respected here to being a Jonah Goldberg clone.

    Let’s briefly review the party of Erickson – debt doubled under one presidency, money supply (INFLATION now and soon to be) up 70%, Cover up of homosexual GOPer’s molestation of pages by the Speaker, Abramoff-Reed-Choctaw casino connection, Duke Cunningham, the biggest social spending program since LBJ, a doomed war that will cost a $trillion borrowed from Chinese adversaries, thousands of GI’s killed for NOTHING, a CDO/CLO/derivatives catastrophe in the making, open borders, and amnesty for illegals.

    Ron Paul stood alone in the GOP against the destruction of America.

    He probably won’t win, but I think he is going to put the fear of THE PEOPLE back in the GOP.

    I have to agree with Injun here. It’s no secret that i’m backing Thompson, but I think by that joke of an interview of Ron Paul, we are making backwards steps and not forwards steps. I feel that we should at least respect Ron Paul because, whether we like it or not, he’s right about a lot of things. I should remind everybody to go back and think about Ronald Reagan’s 11th Commandment. We should apply, especially now when our party is in such a fractitious state.

  6. TPSoCal says:

    Wow, I can’t disagree with Indy’s post and that scares me to death. I have only voted for a Democrat once on the local level. I have been an active, proud member of the GOP since I was 18. I used to wonder how Dems could consider Bill Clinton such a hero. Under his watch they lost both houses of congress and a lot of governorships. I guess I need to answer the same question about Bush43.

    I was a little disappointed with Erick’s interview, although I understand the humor. I was actually interested in hearing what Rep. Paul had to say. I probably won’t vote for him as I am leaning heavily towards Thompson or Huckabee. But Ron Paul fascinates me. I give him credit for standing on principle and not GOP polls. I was glad to read that he is pro-life, that surprised me.

    I hope I will get a chance to read / listen to a legit in-depth interview, it should be interesting.

  7. ConservativeCaucus says:

    TPSoCal,

    I agree… the “interview” was a strange attempt at humor and Congressman Paul has certainly stood on principle and I respect him for that. I further agree that Thompson and Huckabee seem the most likely to have my support.

    The GOP has become a party of Big Government Neo-Cons and Religious Zealots. Time to do like Bob Barr just did and jump ship to the Libertarian Party.

    I usually do not play videos and audio posted to this site, but I did this one.

    The only thought that I am left with is that Erick is not mature enough to be joining the leadership of my city, and frankly I am embarrassed that he is a member of my party.

    I do not think Paul is a good candidate, and it would be painful to watch if he was the nominee, but Erick’s juvenile attempt at humor reveals an arrogance and attitude that is, quite frankly, very disgusting. Paul has things of value to add to the debate for who is President.

  11. joe says:

    Doug,

    With the minor exception that I do not live in Macon, I concur. While I know that Ron Paul is not electable, he is the candidate who actually speaks to issues and not to polls. Erick displayed a sophmoric attempt at humor. It is a shame that he is running unopposed.

    Icarus wrote “Will the Ron Paul fundraiser accept recycled tinfoil?”

    They would probably WELCOME it. Aluminum is soaring in price while the $US is falling like a rock. If you are looking for which one will hold its value, it ain’t the green printed paper.

    You actually hit upon one reason I think Dr. Paul is running. He figures we will have an economic calamity as a result of the Bush/GOP financial lunacy and wants to go down in history as the prophet without honor in his own land.

    It is certainly one principle reason that I have been so outspoken and will continue to be so. For one thing I think it a sin to remain silent when by speaking out you prevent harm to innocents and fools.

    At least our consciences will be clear……how will it feel to have supported the destroyers of America – the Bush GOP without reservation after ignoring financial insanity, corruption eclipsing Tea Pot Dome, a fiasco of a war, child molesters in Congress, bought-off congressmen, the Katrina idiocy, torture of a 16 y.o. boy to exact a confession from his father, and worship of a deciever who called the U.S. Constitution a “God-damned” scrap of paper?

    You squandered a legacy bought with the blood of patriots.

    Dr. Paul is trying to stop you.

    Good for him.
