My Email to Dick Morris about His “No True Patriot Could Be for Ron Paul” Comment

By Doug Newman
Here is Dick Morris’ email address.

Mr. Morris,

I write in response to the following comment you made on the Sean Hannity show the other afternoon:

 “No true patriot could be for Ron Paul.”

Who is a “true patriot”? Is it someone who has never served in the military, yet unquestioningly supports every act of war committed by his country, no matter what? What about someone who has risked his life in war and, as a result of first-hand experience, started asking responsible questions about these wars and supporting anti-war candidates?

Ron Paul gets more contributions from active duty soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines than all other candidates combined. These people formed their opinions about war with bullets whizzing by their heads, bombs going off all around them and people dying before their very eyes.

How did you form your opinions about war? In the late 1960s when you were at Columbia, less educated and privileged kids from places like Bedford-Stuyvesant and Yuma were fighting and bleeding and dying in places like Khe Sanh and Hamburger Hill.

I will give John Kerry this and this only: he put himself in harm’s way for four-and-one-half months in Vietnam. What did Bush, Cheney, Gingrich, Romney or Limbaugh do? And what did you do in the big war? Yeah YOU, RAMBO!

Whenever I hear a politician or media hack endlessly promoting war, my very first question is this: what did they ever do in the military? If the answer is “nothing”, then I don’t give a DAMN what they have to say about anything. Period.

RON PAUL 2012!

My name is Doug Newman. I live in Aurora, Colorado, just outside Denver. Food for the Thinkers is mostly about the connection between Christianity and libertarianism. Most Christians do not understand libertarianism. And most libertarians do not understand Christianity. Hopefully, this blog helps clear up those misunderstanding.

    Hi, I’m also on WordPress – Are you gang stalked, too? And I’m on the Patriot’s Liberty Network, too. Like your comment to Cheney. He’s an idiot.
