An Open Letter to Ron Paul
Submitted by Duncan Bayne on Fri, 2007-11-23 08:33
Dear Dr. Paul,
If someone had asked me yesterday who I would vote for amongst the current crop of would-be Presidents, I would have unhesitatingly answered "Ron Paul." Despite the fact that I disagreed with some of your policies, I still saw you as by far and away the best candidate available.
That changed today, when I became aware of the following article you wrote, criticising the BATF & FBI assault on the Branch Davidians in Waco:
While I agreed with many of your criticisms of BATF and FBI tactics & strategy, it became apparent to me that your article was not primarily concerned with those criticisms: the main thrust of the article was to whitewash the monstrous evil committed by David Koresh and his followers. You wrote:
"The community of faith that once lived at Mount Carmel in Waco, Texas, believed the promise of free society."
This is the "community of faith" that sacrificed 12 year old girls to Koresh so they could serve as his 'wives' - some of whom bore his children. If that level of barbarism - a religious community complicit in the slavery and rape of young girls - represents anything approaching your idea of what is a "free society", then I don't want you having any say in how society operates.
I deeply regret that I have promoted your candidacy to some of my friends & colleagues, & sincerely hope your campaign meets the failure you so richly deserve.
