Ron Paul, hero of the paleocons and paleolibs, says mosque debate is driven by “neocons”

A reader writes:

How is this guy considered a “conservative” again? From Ron Paul’s statement:

Just think of what might (not) have happened if the whole issue had been ignored and the national debate stuck with war, peace, and prosperity. There certainly would have been a lot less emotionalism on both sides. The fact that so much attention has been given the mosque debate, raises the question of just why and driven by whom?

In my opinion it has come from the neo-conservatives who demand continual war in the Middle East and Central Asia and are compelled to constantly justify it.

Apparently, 70 percent of Americans are “neoconservatives” now, and to be opposed to Islamic imposition is a “neoconservative” position. Once again, we see a “conservative” who hates Israel more than he loves America. Since Paul is a libertarian too, it’s also obvious how libertarianism is a woefully impotent means of supporting Western civilization.
