As long as Ron Paul makes them all understand the Federal Reserve's owners are the root cause of all our problems in society and the Church he'll be a help.

I once had a pet rat (great pets by the way) named Paulie after Ron Paul.  :)

Catholic politicians in good standing like Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi couldn't make it.

From the decriminalisation perspective, Ron Paul has said while he doesn't support  or would advise doing those illegal drugs, prohibition of them and punishing of them through imprisonment doesn't help. They need rehabilitation and therapy: not prison for the drugs. From that perspective, freeing up the judicial system and taking a different approach isn't bad. It's more catholic-esque in that particular regard; more 'merciful'. He is also against the Fed reserve and its usury; both things any solid Catholic ought to be against anyways. He might not be 'Catholic'; but we can always pray that he converts.

As far as 9/11 'Truther' type stuff; it could go either way: it may or may not be truth. While intriguing to learn and know at this point it is largely moot. We know a skeletal structure of a police-state is in place. We've got to stop it; whether or not 9/11 had something to do with it or not; or whether or not it was 'an inside job' or not.

Virgil is on point. Many Catholics, liberal, progressive, and neo-cons, do not see the evil which the Federal Reserve is and causes. The left because they invented it, and the right because it glorifies greed to a virtue, and allows them to war with any one over Israel, the Master of the neo-cons.

Sadly, off the top of my head I cant think of even one truly Catholic politician.....and if there were, they wouldn't get elected in the first place due to the onslaught of garbage they'd be sure to receive from the media...

I was just looking this up and guess what? Several news outlets mostly Jewish based are calling all of this anti Semitic. Labeling these Catholics and "radical traditionalist Catholics."

The political stuff is interesting and important but a man's soul is at stake.
  I think he is Episcopalian, which means it isn't necessary for him to convert, ecumenically speaking  :LOL:

This gal is trying to make the connection that Ron Paul is siding with those radical antisemitic catholics ,  doesn't bite but defends catholics.

To Virgil's point, I agree the Federal Reserve has been a disaster to our country and its moral character.

Where I differ with him on Ron Paul is that decriminalizing vice impoverishes families and nations from a moral and financial standpoint. It removes an objective standard that something as wrong, particularly in nonbelievers. America's founding fathers knew this. This is not true freedom; it's liberty to do what you want. The same goes for decriminalizing suicide, euthanasia, abortion, contraception, sodomy, polygamy, incest, prostitution, pornography, pedophilia, and all other vices. Pope Emeritus BXVI has written extensively on this: that society's laws should be based in Catholic truth in order to uphold justice and the common good. To decriminalize is to lower the bar, saying these behaviors are now acceptable and non-punishable. The net effect is to isolate the few religious persons who still believe these things are wrong. 

Do transgressors need help? Absolutely. The thing is Virgil, most abusers won't seek help for themselves until they're in prison, where they must quit cold turkey. It's a wakeup call for change. Once in prison, they can get the treatment they wouldn't otherwise afford. They need to be off the street, behind bars and in recovery rather than walking the streets, robbing people, murdering, doing dope, DUI, hustling.
