Ron Paul Fights Ho Chi Minh in Little Saigon!

Yes, the Paul-bots--the political Juggalos whose obsessive behavior manages to turn off reasonable people who might otherwise agree with their candidate--have certainly been busy. Not content simply to take over a panel at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books or desperately demonstrate their relevance on the Yorba Linda overpass of the 57 freeway, they've been taking liberties with art. The result is an extremely artistic sign attached to a chain-link fence on Euclid Street in Garden Grove in Little Saigon.

Ron Paul: he fought for freedom in Saigon, and now he fights for freedom in Little Saigon!

Notice the use of the red stripes on yellow background, like the South Vietnamese flag. Ron Paul, freedom fighter against Communism, whether at home or abroad!

No information, no website, no plank; just his name on a South Vietnamese flag, as though Vietnamese-Americans are going to be so swayed by this image that their internal dialogue goes, "I don't know whom to vote for, but Ron Paul had his name on the flag of free Vietnam, so therefore I'd better vote for him!"

Dajun8989 got it right on the nose.  Your 'journalism' belongs on the back of a Cracker Jack box, if they'll allow it.  What has led every civilization to ruin, homelessness, and what continues to transfer wealth from the working middle class to the elite at the top is NOT the approach of free trade or capitalism, but rather the nanny state approach in which all separation between big government and industry is eradicated, which is perfectly exemplified by Obama's brand of corporate cronyism that has exonerated all of Wall Street from being brought to justice.  Obama even dared to say that Wall Street didn't do anything illegal leading up to the economic collapse of 2008.  Perhaps the worst of it all is that Obama still claims that what he's doing is somehow 'empathetic' and droves of mindless globalists and liberals flock to him, in love with the idea of a black man in office, and never bothering to realize just how much of a puppet he truly is.  The road to recovery is not by way of stripping us of the little freedom we've still got and by allowing government to grow even bigger, it's by way of restoring liberty and bringing back the idea of a truly free market that is not at its knees because of a repressive and intrusive central government.

If this is all I need to become a successful journalist, why don't I have his job? Oh, because I would not spew pointless drivel and misinformation to blind the masses! I apologize. I must admit, chances are good that you are also blind. Who better to help facilitate their endgame?!?

This your story? Figuratively speaking, everybody can accumulate a little dust on the mantle. The fact of the matter is the ENTIRE ESTABLISHMENT is beside itself because there is no real dirt to be found on Ron Paul. There are only rumors and slants to try and tarnish the standard-bearing reputation of of a great man who deserves no such treatment. You wag your little tail at the cheesy treat dangled in front of you while they rob you of your distracted little life. Will the little light in your head turn on before they cut the power?

The corrupt media can smear Dr. Paul as much as they want!! I can tell you he's swept 7 states delegates!! The delegates are what matter!! He's taking it....get use to writing President Paul....cause it's happening whether you like it or not!!

"An idea whose time has come cannot be stopped by any army or any government." - Ron Paul

What's funny is some Vietnamese person probably made this sign and you're calling someone else racist lol. Other than that i'd say the best part about this "blog" is it only took 10 seconds to read it all. Guess the writer couldn't think of anything else to say.

If you want to know the facts about the success of the Ron Paul campaign, please check out www ron paul flix com so you can actually see we are taking over the GOP from the ground up.  replacing the Boss seats in states all across America.  Crowds of thousands showing up at Dr. Paul's rallies and all the rest of the support being shown.  Something the MSM will not allow.

No Kings, No Wars.

 You are seriously uninformed. Truth be told, the first person to scream racist usually needs to look no further than into a mirror. You are a prime example of the ignorance that has been force fed to the people for far too long. Please, every person here who has not allowed this hypocrisy to infect them, do not listen to the anti American bile spewing from Scoop Editor. He is NOT versed in the life and message of Ron Paul. Scoop Editor has chosen to remain a part of the cancer that is attempting to destroy this nation and its people. Little does he know, he is helping to destroy himself as well. What a foul-mouthed antagonist.

 You believe you can slander me with only the idea that I support the only Honest anti war statesman running for POTUS?  Racist because of something someone else wrote in a well to do newsletter that happened to have Dr. Paul as the title?

sheesh... no wonder things are so bad.

Scare tactics because that's what the Law is for.  Race wars?  Individualism has nothing to do with race, whatsoever.  Get a clue and an education while your at it.

I would say you represent a typical Wrong Paul supporter but I think his supporters are normally known for being racist rather than homophobic.

Did he ever step off ta plane  onto Vietnamese soil?  I heard NOT.http://lewwaters.wordpress.com...

Ron Paul Calls Social Security and Medicare Unconstitutional ... thinkprogress.org/politics/201...May 15, 2011 – Ron Paul (R-TX) defended his longstanding view that Medicare, Social Security (and pretty much everything else) violate the Constitution.

Ron Paul served our country when he was drafted even though he had a family. He treated our injured soldiers!!!  You are going to put a negative spin on him not being on Vietnamese soil??  Did Mitt Romney or Barack Obama serve in the military?  

Bob Davidson

What's your point? I don't know if he walked the jungles there or not but I do know that the U.S. lost hundreds of aircraft there to interceptors, missiles and anti-aircraft batteries.

What's your other point? Show me in the Constitution where it grants authority for the federal government to spend money on such programs.

Ron Paul supporters are the worst. Dr. Paul this. Dr. Paul that. Is it the same 2 people that flame every thread on the internet or are all his supporters this whacky?

There is not millions of people going around trolling on the Internet. yes he has millions of supporters. For every person ever elected there are crazies, criminals,and every other type of person..just as there is this year. The difference? Ron Paul people care.

Ernest M. Hughes

 The only reason you can't call Obama or Romney a "cult of personality" is that they haven't got any. 

Face facts:  NO one likes Obama anymore; and Romney -- you can polish that turd until it shines like a diamond, but you will never find the "clean end" with which to pick it up.  That leaves Paul and his message of Liberty. 

Bob Davidson

Actually, it's a cult of Freedom. Ron Paul just happens to be the leading spokesperson for millions of people who are fed up with the jackboot bureaucracy that you appear to embrace.

Bob Davidson

I don't live elsewhere but maybe you think I should be satisfied with the EPIC FAIL status quo federal thugocracy in this country just because it's still several steps behind Greece and Venezuela.

There is no assumption that Congress will mirror Ron Paul. As Chief Executive we expect his veto pen would need an ink refill weekly. Every unConstitutional Signing Statement and Executive Order would be repealed. Those five unConstitutional Cabinet departments he wants to eliminate would be bled to extinction. The IRS would be abolished. Even an uncooperative Congress can be made more cooperative through direct appeal to We The People.

Dave Lieberman
Dave Lieberman

Trust me, the jack-booted bureaucracy here pales next to the jack-booted bureaucracy elsewhere in the world.

Also, I find it funny that all the Paul-bots assume that Ron Paul would be swept into office on a tidal wave of Congresscritters who think like him. Wouldn't it suck to have President Paul in what the French would call cohabitation politique, with an uncooperative Congress?

I find it ironic that this article is somehow meant to act like Ron Paul would not effect the rest of the world, however, you may want to read up on international news and maybe check out the Ron Paul protests in Spain to see how much worldwide support there actually is for this man. Ron Paul is now a snowball rolling down hill, getting bigger by the week and you can be damn sure impact will happen in Tampa.

Dave Lieberman

Those voters in Spain will definitely get him to pass Romney!

He's not "miraculously" uncorrupt, he's been uncorrupt for 30+ years, while the rest of congress was passing pay hikes for themselves. If you like some of his ideas, why not report on them instead of some idiotic story about a sign on a highway. We have a lot of problems in america, but I think its safe to say one of the biggest problems is that YOU, and the rest of the ignorant and lazy media have an oversized role in "informing" the voter which you take less seriously than the unionized school teachers!

Dave Lieberman
Dave Lieberman

Of course the Internet is changing the world! Obama used it to great effect in 2008.

Look, in all seriousness, he has some good ideas, but this slavish devotion to his every word is creeping me out. He's not the Messiah. And I don't believe in miraculously uncorrupt politicians, the giant banner over the 57 notwithstanding.

Yawn.....your biased, crappy reporting just turned me off of Dave Liberalman....I mean Lieberman's reporting!! You are a craptastic reporter!! Your editor should be ashamed!! Guess what Liberal.....we want a real change. We want our Freedoms and Rights restored. Your not a real journalist so I'm sure you never reported on the NDAA bill.....we want that shot down. Ron Paul is winning the delegate race right now...get use to calling him President Paul, cause he's going straight to the white house!!
