Ron Paul vs. Barack Obama

  • Writing for Chronicles Magazine, Alexander Cockburn says "that President Obama ha[s] signed into law a bill that puts the United States not immeasurably far from the Democratic People's Republic of Korea in contempt of constitutional protections for its citizens or constitutional restraints upon criminal behavior sanctioned by the state" — Loom of the Jackboot: Obama Gives Military Extreme Powers.

  • That "[t]he president’s widely expanded view of his own authority to detain Americans indefinitely even on American soil is for the first time in this legislation codified in law... should chill all of us to our cores," quotes John Birch Society's news outlet — Ron Paul Calls National Defense Authorization Act "Slip Into Tyranny".

  • "Paul should garner the support of leftists, liberals, and progressives," says CounterPuncher Mike Whitney, because he "is the only antiwar candidate who has a (microscopic) chance of winning in 2012" and "also the only candidate who will make an effort to restore the Bill of Rights and reverse Congress’s decision to allow the president to 'indefinitely' imprison American citizens without due process" — Ron Paul and the Killing Machine.
