Ron Paul: ‘Neocon influence’ is infiltrating tea parties

 Neocon influence is infiltrating tea partiesIn the face of several electoral challenges from tea party-connected candidates, Texas Republican Congressman Ron Paul cautioned in a recent interview that "neocon influence" is "infiltrating" the movement he is often credited for creating.


Speaking to MSNBC host Rachel Maddow on Tuesday night, Paul first took up for the tea parties as a natural reaction of the people when they are unhappy with government. What they are not, he explained, are entirely adherent to his ideas. Paul suggested that the group only "sometimes" represents his views.


"My message is somewhat different," he said. "The message gets somewhat diluted" with large movements of this nature.


"Everybody likes to join what looks like a popular movement, then they want to come in and influence that movement," Paul continued.


His core issues, such as creating transparency at the Federal Reserve, recalling overseas soldiers and ending the drug war, are "not what is generally heard from the Republican party," he said.

Yes, there has been some election fraud regarding ACORN.

Not sure what you mean by this...this is a debate board and complex issues can only rarely be analyzed "concisely".

You might enjoy accessing the board archives for discussions about ACORN and the Black Panthers, or starting a new thread if you like. In the meantime, I can offer a link to debate about it on the board that's fairly recent:
