Ron Paul BELIEVES in a Creator who has granted us unalienable rights in the Constitution of the United States. This is a consistent position and EVERY politician that takes the oath of office VOWS to UPHOLD IT.
If there is no creator, which an evolutionist believes, then no unalienable rights have been given to you, and the Constitution doesn’t APPLY TO YOU! No wonder our elected officials have gotten so far off course. They don’t believe it either. Therefore, they can’t be held to account for making an oath they never believed in anyway.
When the Hopi Elders were presented with evolution as the prevailing scientific theory, and shown chimps and apes as our ancestors, they said, ‘Those may be YOUR ancestors, they’re NOT MINE.’
So, if you have no creator, you have no endowment of rights to draw on.
American’s rights don’t come from the government. The government comes from the American people.
No creator= no rights, why are you even discussing American politics? Why do you demand rights that were never given to you unalienably?
The question shouldn’t have even been asked. Our national debt has exceeded our ability to repay it, our politicians are chomping at the bit to get us deeper into more wars, Europe is predicting a DEPRESSION for America, and all our ‘bright lights’ can ask about are inane questions of our candidates, like ‘do you believe in evolution?’
No matter what Ron Paul or any other candidate answered about that question, it was purely diversionary from the real issues. And the real issues have gotten so out of hand in large measure because our ‘bright lights’ live off of people’s misery and fear and chaos. An America in the depths of a depression, her people bankrupt, in poverty and anarchy, being controlled by a police state and national surveillance, is much more interesting to write about than are Americans prosperous, happy and free.
The question of evolution does nothing to bring out corruption in our politicians, which seems to me to be a far more relevant issue.
We’re sorry you and your readers are ‘disappointed.’ Unfortunately you and the Atlantic didn’t disappoint the rest of us.
