Strippers For Ron Paul

by Doug Mataconis

It seems that Congressman Paul is drawing support from all kinds of people:

[T]he issue at hand is “Strippers for Ron Paul.” Why would the adult entertainment industry support such an obvious Christian? It is because the Christian congressman, Ron Paul, understands the proper role of government in the United States of America. Government should not dictate morality. Christians are instructed to cast stones if only free from sin. According to Biblical teaching, we are all born into sin and Ron Paul is the only candidate of the Republican Party doing both what his Constitution and Bible demands. I don’t know which he puts first, but I presume that it doesn’t matter because they aren’t incompatible.

Free will and free persons. Ron Paul will not likely be giving personal support to strippers, in dollars or encouragement, but he supports, in legislation, their right to be free. For that, this mother, wife, small biz owner, inventor, Libertarian Party county chairman, and ex-stripper thanks him.

As they say, politics makes for strange bedfellows.

  1. Yet another not-quite-positive Ron Paul mention from supposed Ron Paul supporter Doug Mataconis.

    The New World Order, if it wins, will reward the Mataconises well.

  2. I’ve agreed with you in other threads, buckwheat, but there’s nothing wrong with Doug’s coverage on this one. Save your bitching for when you’re right.
