i hope dr. paul continues to speak his mind.
This x1000. Sorry, but the outrage over RP's tweet is ridiculous. Chris Kyle killed hundreds of people and wrote a book gloating about it. The whole notion of "treating" PTSD at a gun range would be ridiculed if it weren't a "hero" who had been doing it. The military worship in this country is absurd, and it needs to be tempered. The military as a whole, and individual soldiers are far from perfect. A society that celebrates death and glorifies destruction has problems.
Did Chris Kyle deserve to die? Of course not. He was a human being that had every right to live. Paul said nothing out of line or disrespectful.
The guys who run Shamwow are much more heroic than Chris Kyle was.
Ron Paul speaks his mind. That demands respect.
It is impossible to defend my rights unless they are under attack. People in the middle east are not attacking my rights. People in the D.C. are. When you can explain how what is done in the name of the "war on terror" results in my rights being defended, and how it is morally justified then I will consider being greatful.
Until then, your repeated claim that I should be greatful is nothing but an expression of emotion empty of rational content.
This military defending our rights bull shite has got to stop. I'm not a 7th grader in social studies class. I can think for myself. As stated above, my rights are more at risk from people in DC...not some far off desert.
So, it's an applicable statement ANY TIME a military combat veteran might be senselessly murdered at any point thereafter in his life.
