Ron Paul’s Intelligent Paranoia Tour

I have to believe that Ron Paul is an intelligent man.  He is, as his supporters obsessively tout, a doctor, which requires some intelligence.  He also has displayed extensive knowledge on the inner workings of the government and Federal Reserve.  This does not mean that he is not also a paranoid loon when it comes to foreign policy/relations or that he is not a racist anti-Semite.  You would think an intelligent person would grasp the realities of the world at large, but Ron Paul’s paranoid isolationism prevents him from understanding the interconnectedness of the world and how the United States fits into the world picture. 

Ron Paul is an intelligent paranoid isolationist who is also racist and anti-Semitic. His intelligence gives him away.  How could someone who is so keenly aware of the goings on in the Federal Reserve not be aware of the content of newsletters written under his name?  He couldn’t be.  So why is Ron Paul denying he had knowledge of the content of the newsletters?  Again the answer comes down to intelligence.  Ron Paul is aware of the damage the newsletters can inflict on his campaign.  In this 1996 article the Houston Chronicle questions Paul about the newsletters.  Paul’s answers prove he was fully aware of the newsletters’ contents. 
So why would an intelligent man play the ignorant fool?  It seems as though Ron Paul has learned from past mistakes that the newsletters are trouble.  He knows that being a racist is detrimental to his campaign so he is attempting to distance himself from them.  Unfortunately for him, people remember him acknowledging his awareness and agreement with the content of the newsletters.  When he was called out on it in an interview, he stormed out.  His carefully laid out plan wasn’t so carefully laid out as he thought it was.  He couldn’t sit there and be proven a racist, that wouldn’t be good for his campaign, so he walked out.  Just because he avoided being proven a racist does not mean he is not a racist.  He is a racist, his newsletters, no matter how hard he tries to deny knowing the content, prove he is a racist.
Similarly, making anti-Israel/pro-Palestinian statements tend to point to anti-Semitism, but not conclusively. 
“And so I (Jeffery Scott Shapiro) asked Congressman Paul: if he were President of the United States during World War II, and as President he knew what we now know about the Holocaust, but the Third Reich presented no threat to the U.S., would he have sent American troops to Nazi Germany purely as a moral imperative to save the Jews?
And the Congressman answered:
‘No, I wouldn’t. I wouldn’t risk American lives to do that. If someone wants to do that on their own because they want to do that, well, that’s fine, but I wouldn’t do that.’”

In my opinion, making anti-Israel/pro-Palestinian statements coupled with the above statement and the fact that I can find no evidence that Ron Paul has met with any Jewish leaders or Jewish groups during this campaign, leads me to believe that Ron Paul is anti-Semitic.
Remember though, he is intelligent and he wants to win the race, so racism/anti-Semitism would not preclude him from working with any individuals if he thought they would be of some benefit to him or to his campaign. 

Put it on a bumper sticker Ron Paul for President: intelligent, racist, anti-Semitic, paranoid, loon.
