.@ggreenwald totally doesn't support Ron Paul. Totally.

But here are some handy facts to know about the Paleoconservative which Very Concerned Progressives should make sure they repeat often so that they forget the other 98% of what makes Ron Paul dangerous.

Would be fascinating to watch the GOP candidate be to Obama's left on war/foreign policy, many civil liberties & criminal justice/Drug War
Adam McMahon @adammc123
@ggreenwald You sure do flirt with Ron Paulerism. Would you vote for him?
Glenn Greenwald @ggreenwald
@adammc123 If you oppose the civilian slaughter, Endless war, civil liberties abuses & secrecy fixation of both parties, is that RonPaulism?
Adam McMahon @adammc123
@ggreenwald you only get two choices in a prez election, & you critique Obama often. Are you opposed to voting for Obama?
Glenn Greenwald @ggreenwald
@adammc123 You get a lot more than two choices - nobody knows the choices yet - when I'm ready to endorse, I'll be sure to let you know
Adam McMahon @adammc123
@ggreenwald I oppose all of those things, but I don't have to continually mention Ron Paul to do so.
🦃Turkey🍗Herder🥧 @tylerhower
@adammc123 @ggreenwald Isn't it the job of a journalist/pundit/etc. to be critical of all sides, rather than to stump for a candidate?
Glenn Greenwald @ggreenwald
@adammc123 But you're going to vote for a candidate who favors and implements all those things? That's how much you oppose them?
Adam McMahon @adammc123
@ggreenwald please. Either a Republican or a Dem will be president. Do I really need to explain Duverger's Law to you?
Glenn Greenwald @ggreenwald
@tylerhower @adammc123 Some people think the job of every journalist & citizen is to be a DNC employee & WH cheerleader
Adam McMahon @adammc123
@ggreenwald ...one that supports a woman's right to choose, govt healthcare, & has done more for lgbt rights than any other in history
Glenn Greenwald @ggreenwald
@adammc123 If you want to hear only from those capable of seeing the world in R v D teams & cheering accordingly, you should read elsewhere
Glenn Greenwald @ggreenwald
@adammc123 The election is almost a full year away - in the meantime, your duty is to check those in power - at least that's mine
Adam McMahon @adammc123
@ggreenwald for someone who lives on critiquing others, you should accept my questioning openly. I'm no DNC shill.
Glenn Greenwald @ggreenwald
@adammc123 Question away - the election is a year away - I'm not taking a loyalty oath for any candidate - if I do, I'll let you know
Adam McMahon @adammc123
@ggreenwald agreed. But my question was very specific about Ron Paul
Glenn Greenwald @ggreenwald
@adammc123 You make no sense:if Paul opposes war/civilian-slaughter/civil-liberties-abuses/DrugWar, then untrue both parties support them
Adam McMahon @adammc123
@ggreenwald implicit in my statement was the assumption he won't be the nominee
Glenn Greenwald @ggreenwald
@adammc123 It's totally circular - he'd be the nominee if people voted for him - you don't because you're indifferent to those issues
Glenn Greenwald @ggreenwald
@adammc123 I did answer it - more than once, clearly and directly - you just can't or won't comprehend the answer: can't help that
Adam McMahon @adammc123
@ggreenwald Its not being circular. And yes they are important to me. But they are JUST AS important as the other issues I've mentioned
Adam McMahon @adammc123
@ggreenwald are you going to vote in the Republican primary? It's coming up
Glenn Greenwald @ggreenwald
@adammc123 It's fine-we all have to prioritize - just admit your candidate supports/does heinous things: civilian slaughter & racist DrugWar
Glenn Greenwald @ggreenwald
@adammc123 No, I'm not going to vote in the Republican primary - I'm not a Republican

@adammc123 @ggreenwald doesn't really critique anyway. Even if you read his articles - they don't hold the hold picture. He is a traffic "getter".
