« Mortgage Fraud Case Settlement = More Home Seizures | Main | Ruh-Roh: Congressional Filing Deadline Might Be Extended Again »

The John Birch Society (JBS) has an official policy of membership cancellation of any body found to be racist. Membership in a white supremacist group is not the only such indicator. Those continuing to state otherwise are being deceitful and not reporting facts right. JBS's motto as stated on their monthly bulletin is "Less government, more responsibility, and- with God's help a better world". What could possibly be wrong with advocating that position? They are a good, solid, honest, constitutionalist, pro-gun organization whose members for the most part want the government to leave them alone and not continue to restrict their choices or impose alternative moral values upon them by legal decree. They regard very highly the USA's national sovereignty, and have rightly pointed out reductions of it in the NAFTA and GATT treaties that were ratified during the 1990s. The United Nations is also seen as infringing upon USA's sovereignty, so JBS's members call for, and Ron Paul writes legislation in the US House of Representatives to get us out of the United Nations. Our membership in it is unconstitutional, and wasn't envisioned by our founders at our nation's beginning.

The old guilt by association trick.

If one can link a man of sound logic and pure intent to a group that is equally well intended but seems "delusional" in its rationality, one can put both in their place.

W.F. Buckley, I think, said it best, “The fallacy is the assumption that you can infer subjective intention from objective consequence: we lost China to the Communists, therefore the President of the United States and the Secretary of State wished China to go to the Communists.”

Goldwater was too closely linked to this "paranoid, racist, neo-nazi" Society. Paul has not made the same mistake.


The only link between Paul and kooky conspiracy theories is his newsletters. That seems to be the one blemish on his record. Never mind the fact that he did not write them and that he was not in office when they were written.

The John Birch Society has a great deal of merit and a great deal of baggage. Believing that under every stone there was a secret communist conspiracy and publishing every paranoid thought within the Society was suicidal. It is one thing to be anti-communist. It is another to believe that the communists were floridating our waters to brainwash us into submission.

That is Paul's only battle right now. "Is he presidential or is he a loon?"

That, it appears, is an unwinnable battle even in this new age of the internet.

Money still wins ... For now.

God Bless
