Ron Paul Draws a Primary Opponent.

FortBendNow has the announcement that Congressman Ron “Dr. No” Paul (TX - 14) will have a primary opponent next March. He will be opposed by a Katy small businessman by the name of Tim Graney.

Graney a Katy teabagger, told Paul on Sunday that he needs to move over and let a real statesman work that seat.

Citing differences between Dr. Paul and himself, Graney included in his news release these choice words:

“I am a fiscal conservative, but I do not support Ron Paul’s weak foreign policy views, nor do I support his do whatever you want ultra-Libertarian views that conflict with our American values.”

Graney supports “Traditional American Values.” That’s the buzzword that you are going to be hearing for some time in the future. What those values entail I can only imagine, but they are, as listed in a recent questionnaire that I received from the NRC – and answered – were these singular rightwing Republican ideals:

  • Support prayer in school (Ban Judaism, Islam, Hinduism and Secular Humanism)
  • Ban same sex marriage.
  • Ban abortion on demand.
  • An AK47 in every pot, a Glock 9mm in every garage

In other words, do all that you can to enforce your moral values on everyone else.

In other words, put government in the business of invading the privacy of every man, woman and child in America.

It’s nice, then that red, red CD-14 will have a choice next March over whether they want to follow a new path towards restriction of personal right and privileges, something Dr. Paul opposes (as do most Democrats from time to time, depending) and going down this new path of social repression.

Should be fun to watch.
