A youtube video (below) is floating around…with Ron Paul lamenting the demise of Al-Awlaki and the way it came about because he was a U.S. Citizen. Say WHAT?!? Has Ron Paul forgotten that when you are born here, you kinda don’t have a choice? You are pushed out and here you are. Born. In America. Does this give you rights as a citizen? Yes. Then you grow up and make little decisions here and there that either cause your rights to continue…OR… you begin to lose them. You may find yourself in Juvenile Detention after a decision to go for a joy ride with a car you "borrowed". You may find yourself doing community service after some petty theft. Whatever bad decisions you make, you will forfeit some of your legitimate rights. Has no one seen Judge Judy? Here is a scenario: Perhaps one grows up completely disenchanted with America. Like the Obamas… They can attempt to make a change in their little universe or move away and become a citizen somewhere else like Madonna (by marriage) and that cute red head from the 16 Candles movie who went to France. (What was her name? Oh, Molly Ringwald. Thanks, Lisa!) Unfortunately, a person who has peeled his American citizenry off like an ugly sweater is not privileged to enjoy such rights any longer. And whatever your decision, you may not harm other American citizens once you’ve left. Al-Awlaki hated his homeland, and helped make plans to…what? Send unkind letters? NO. He wanted to blow up the innocent civilians in it! He spent his days planning our demise. In this way, Al-Awlaki forfeited his "American Citizen" rights. The only right he had was the right to be captured, brought here, have a special "vest" strapped to him with those funny little "fireworks" attached, and then sent out to live his life, without ever knowing when someone would push the special button that would end his life. He deserved to walk on eggshells til dead. WHY? Because that is what he was planning to do to our people. To YOUR neighbors, YOUR family members, YOUR innocent fellow citizens. Wake up, Ron Paul Followers. He’s got more than a screw loose. His heart – his conscience – they are somehow disconnected from his logical thought processes. It is tragic and sad… But not as tragic and sad as the fact that many are giving the insanity he spews publicity. Ron Paul: It’s "Sad" We "Assassinated" Al-Awlaki.
