Ron Paul Hits Huckabee on Taxes

By Matthew Mosk
Apparently, there's only room in the Republican presidential field for one candidate who wants to abolish the IRS. At least that seems to be the message in a new Ron Paul mailing in New Hampshire. The glossy flyer from the Texas congressman and maverick presidential contender does not target the two Republicans who lead in the polls there (Mitt Romney and John McCain); it instead goes after Iowa caucus winner Mike Huckabee, calling him a "habitual tax hiker."

Paul has been putting to use his $20 million fourth-quarter fundraising haul with a series of mailings, though this is the first to go negative. The piece also carries two photographs -- one shows two former Arkansas governors -- Huckabee and former President Bill Clinton -- in a frame together. The other shows Paul with Ronald Reagan (though does not mention that Paul eventually criticized Reagan as a "failure.")

The latest polls in New Hampshire show Huckabee charging further ahead of Paul, with Huckabee fighting with Rudy Giuliani for third place, and Paul stuck in fifth.

Interesting to see Paul on the offensive against the front runner.

I'd be more interested in seeing him draw a distinction between his positions and those of the Democrats, but I guess this is what you get in the primaries.

Why must Mr. Paul always be referred to as "Ron Paul", instead of Paul. I mean, you refer to Huckleberry as just plain "Huckleberry", not "Mike Huckelberry."

WTF? You all have a clear case of "John DAVID fugging Bootie" syndrome.

I refer to him as Ron Paul or Dr. Paul, out of respect for his title. I try to give all doctors their due.

Well, that's fair because it's on the man's record regarding issues.
Huck wants to handle poverty too. wtf?

Anyhow, the public follows the line of attack...so I think this is good.

I got a comment in a rep, won't say who, from an Iowan who told me the Paul activists spent the weekend digging through trash to dig up dirt on a radio personality instead of campaigning. Have you heard anything on this?

I always wondered about the guys who named themselves Pope Pius the X or whatever. Isn't a pope naming himself Pius kind of vain? Like if we had a candidate name himself Mike Presidential?

Why the hard-on over taxes? Taxes are a necessary evil. They represent that which we all agree upon. If everyone reverted to being paranoid passive-aggressive, conservative types who behave as if taxes were the gateway to hell, we'd still be living in caves and dragging women around by the hair.

The pic with Clinton and Huckabee is subtle, yet classless. I like the message, but that pic, while genius, strikes me as very non-Paul-esque.

It's not anti-tax so much as anti-government spending. You don't have to raise taxes if you cut spending.

I don't disagree. So much depends on how you spend your money.

Government doesn't work for the people anymore, it works for the monied interests.

What kind of health care system could we have had for the money we've spent in Iraq? Too bad Haliburton doesn't have it's own HMO. If they did, Dick Cheney would be all over it.

Exactly. I don't mind getting taxed as long as my tax dollars are doing something that I believe in.

Man, Huckabee is smooth. It's impossible to watch that interview and not root for him just a little bit. (That might have something to do with his eloquent explanation of the Fair Tax, though.)

This is the kind of thing that we appreciate liberals saying right now. If we didn't have taxes, we'd be women-raping cavemen. Can you print up some flyers?

:banghead: Just got back to this this morning. I was talking to my sister last evening and happened to bring up this question for some reason. Of course the Pope gets to choose his own name. I'm going to hell now.
I'm Catholic. I'm doomed. :(

Do you really believe that nonsense? Well, from reading your other posts, I suppose you might. You're the same poster that thought insulting other peoples intelligence was a good way to convince them to support Ron Paul.

Taxation itself is not an inherently socialist idea, at least to anyone but a member of the political fringe (Libertarians and Randites, for instance).

For example:


"Taxes are what we pay for a civilized society."

Yeah, he was such a die-hard red he also believed:


"State interference is an evil, where it cannot be shown to be a good."

Yep...pure communism. :shake:

Of course the Pope gets to choose his own name.

Cool. Then I still have a slim chance of seeing a Pope Johnny Fever in my lifetime.
