Ron Paul: Home Schoolers 'Counteract Propaganda Machine'
Ron Paul warned a group of home schooling advocates on Wednesday that officials at the Department of Education are trying to ‚Äúindoctrinate‚ÄĚ their children.
‚ÄúThey don‚Äôt educate our kids, they indoctrinate our kids,‚ÄĚ the Texas congressman said of federal education efforts. ‚ÄúIt‚Äôs a propaganda machine.‚ÄĚ
Paul, who's considering a second White House bid in as many cycles, cast the many home schoolers in the crowd as something akin to a merry band of rebels against federal overreach. ‚ÄúWhat I‚Äôve seen from you is an effort to counteract the propaganda machine."...
I don't know Ron Paul's exact theology other than he identifies as a Christian, but I do know he exhibits a charity, candor, and temperment that we'd all do well to emulate. He has his facts straight and always attempts to discuss things on principle rather than personality. Anyone who calls him an anti-Semite is intellectually lazy and probably hot tempered. Funny, none of his Christian detractors seem very concerned about the blood of Arabs, Pakistanis, and Afghanis being shed. Maybe they don't believe that man is made in the image of God and b/c of that has an inherent dignity, that life is precious???
As far as drugs, he doesn't advocate taking them but only that government doesn't have the authority to use force prohibiting one from destroying themselves w them. Is this a difficult idea to understand? I think not.

A recent article about Herr Paul, Ron Paul: Anti-Semite: Case Closed and something of a golden-oldie 2007, which is true today as when it was written in 2007, The Odd Alliance Supporting Ron Paul.
Your implication that Ron Paul wants all kids to smoke pot sounds like political scaremongering.
Also, are you suggesting that those who oppose foreign aid to Israel and Arab countries are anti-semites? Or are you suggesting that those who do not hold dispensational views are anti-semites? The link seems to be a broad generalization without much documentation.
And by odd alliances do you really mean guilt by association? The American Thinker has some odd alliances too, are they disreputable on the same grounds?
