Do unto others, as they do to you!


Gathers boo's from a religious audience in Carolina.


Where are we as a nation headed, if that is the example our media is promoting minute by minute this morning.


What happened to live and let live.

Actually, the Golden Rule is to "do unto others as you would have them do unto you," meaning, treat others as you would like to be treated, not treat them the same way they treat you.

Big difference there.

Meanwhile, a little context in the form of a link or verbatim quote would be nice.

Lets say we do exactly what Ron Paul advocates.

We stop holding back Israel and let her take care of her own security.

We end all military aid to Israel.

We reestablish diplomatic and economic relations with Iran and remove all sanctions. We tell Iran that we won't stop them if they want the Bomb. But we warn them that if they use it against Israel , the US will immediately retaliate and destroy Iran.

Fast forward five years. Iran has a nuclear armed ICBM.

The mullahs in Iran decide nuking Israel is necessary to bring the coming of the Mahdi according to Isalmic Shia prophecies. They order the Revolutionary Guards to destroy Tel'Aviv as the mullahs prepare for their verison of Judegement day.

How will Ron Paul react if he was President?

Who is still basing their entire lives and how they live them on what they see on TV?

First off, "Carolina" isn't a place.

Second, that's not the golden rule.

That's not the golden rule, either.

An assertion without evidence can be dismissed, provide evidence please.

This is not what would happen. What would happen would be that Iran would be a balance to Israel in the region. That Israel would think twice before it invades and kills without discretion as it usually does.

The US won't be involved in any more stupid wars that are bankrupting us. The US would be able to do business with all countries in the region and prosper like China has been doing. And terrorist activity against the US would dramatically decline because we are not following the warmongering policies that have generated so much hatred.
