Real Americans love killing (revised)

At the fifth GOP debate this week, moderator Wolf Blitzer asked Ron Paul, a doctor, whether someone who opts to not buy health insurance and then gets sick should be allowed to die. The crowd responded with startling shouts of "Yeah!" followed by applause, leaving even Rick Perry "taken aback." Paul's answer, while more gentle, was more or less the same. "That's what freedom is all about: taking your own risks. This whole idea that you have to take care of everybody ... " said Paul, who was cut off by clapping from the audience.
Man, see yourself! Know the true desires of your soul. Feel the love of horror, the lust for blood, the ecstasy of watching death stride out upon the earth and take his toll.

When is your mind at peace? Only when your body is at WAR.

When are you truly satisfied? Only when blood is on your hands, hatred in your heart and the light of battle gleaming in your eye.

Then they wiped the spittle from their mouths and went back to chewing raw meat, fundamentalist-Christian-American-patriot style. Their favored economic plan includes a rendezvous with the Stone Age and the deaths of billions, as part of their religion of small government (death squads and Inquisitors) and "prophecy-fulfillment."

This might be why Ron Paul got out of medicine and got into politics: it's easier to kill lots of people. Now he can pretend there's nothing he can do for all of us, instead of just his patients.
