    If legitimate, then Mr. Paul is a very crass person and I look forward to the day he no longer represents any Americans in politics.

    There are a few folks roaming around this forum with extra buttholes due to similar comments...

    At a minimum it's extremely disrespectful, and Mr. Paul would be worthy of no less criticism for such inconsiderate words regarding most recent tragic events.

    What do you expect from a man who thinks that America is the cause of most of the world's problems.

    Shame on Ron Paul for his comment about Chris Kyle....:steamed:

    I'm convinced that Ron Paul's supporters are an even split between potheads just wanting drugs legalized, and government hating anarchists who want no restrictions on their perverted behavior.

    Thank God the American people didn't fall for Ron Paul's BS.

    Until it is proven a truth, I call it a hoax.

    No surprise really. He isn't for any of our troops to be anywhere but here in the US. Yeah, that IS disrespectful.
    Some serve with honor and others have no clue what that word means.

    This doesn't sound like something Paul would say.

    It's sad that someone who truly believes in small government, letting you keep your own money, is a vocal supporter of the 2nd amendment, would get so much hate on a pro-gun forum.

    I doubt Dr. Paul runs his own twitter, I'll reserve judgement to see if anything else is said.

    Just went on Twitter and saw it, looked like his official account. I'm no twitter expert though.

    The one reason I can never be a member if the libertarian party is their cowardly and pacifistic (and simple-minded) attitude toward national defense and the military.

    That was a deal breaker for me too.
    Isolationism is the wrong thing to do in a world full of evil.

    I find it amusing that so many statists are butt-hurt by this. As if a saint were insulted, an altar desecrated. I know you guys workship these types, but c'mon.

    Ron Paul's statement just confirms what I've been saying about him for the last year.

    It comes as no surprise.

    Good for Ron Paul. The glorification of war and the military of late is more than a little sickening.

    John Kerry?

    Yeah a decorated veteran being murdered while helping another vet with PTSD is glorifying war?

    Are you sure of the definition of statists? You probably weren't too upset with Ft Hood too right? Good to know you find it amusing.

    Nobody is glorifying war!...:steamed:

    Standing up against evil and fighting to preserve freedom and democracy is NOT glorifying war.

    What do you have against the military?

    Is the massive bragging about the "160 kills" not glorifying war?

    There is no "massive bragging", just a statement of fact concerning Chris Kyle's military record.

    He killed the enemies of this country who, if still alive, would be a direct threat to the lives of American military personnel, and they just might have participated in a future 911 attack on American citizens.

    It's not so much how many people he killed, but more importantly how many lives he saved by killing those Taliban/al-Qaeda demons.

    You should quit this while you're ahead, because you're wading in hot water.
