I left a VP comment to the effect that American elites probably shelter pedophiles at least as often as the Brits have done. Well, that got me thinking…if a person persists in incorrectness when they have both the time and the brains to figure something out, then it is almost certainly due to a moral failing rather than a true misunderstanding. This becomes more and more true as more time passes.
Now this guy is a medical professional who studies Mises and Hayek in his spare time. He’s brainier than the average congressman. Also a bit of a jock, having been a Pennsylvania state sprinting champion back in his high school days.
And possibly a perv (because his medical degree is OBGYN), for the same reason that my eyebrow stays half-cocked for podiatrists, shoe salesmen, and the director of the 20-minute scene starring Uma Thurman’s feet in Kill Bill.
So imagine a smart guy wins a seat in Washington, and there’s kind of a pedophilia thing going on that everybody else knows about, but it’s considered impolite to bring it up outside of “the funhouse” (as it’s called). Even the most aspergic retard in the world is going to eventually figure out “something’s not quite right”. Maybe this has been bugging him for a few years, so he asks why vans keep bringing kids over from the orphanage every weekend, and the others tell him “it’s for school projects, and also they’re interns or something”. Maybe a decade later, he thinks it’s odd that the same 10-year-old faces keep showing up every week. “That would be an awful lot of school projects,” he muses, “and they’re kinda young to be interns.”
In conclusion: Given the evidence against him, I now think Ron Paul is a figurehead for channeling the pathos of the libertarian crowd, in the same way that the rest of the puppet government is a farce intended to channel the pathos of the masses.
