Can we just have this guy committed already?

I don't know how crazy Ron Paul actually is. I suspect some of  the insanity might be an act to appeal to a certain demographic that can easily be convinced to buy gold because FEMA is gonna put you in a camp and force-feed you flouride!!1!

But either way, if he's going to keep playing the part of a bug-eyed lunatic, can't we just fit him for a straightjacket and toss him into a padded cell?

Ron Paul Says U.S. 'Likely Hiding Truth' About MH17 Crash

 | By 

Because of course they are, just like they've been hiding the truth about Area 51 for all these years.

"The U.S. government has grown strangely quite on the accusation that it was Russia or her allies that brought down the Malaysian airliner with a buck anti-aircraft missile [sic]," the former GOP presidential candidate wrote. "The little that we have heard from U.S. intelligence is that it has no evidence that Russia was involved. Yet the war propaganda were successful in convincing the American public that it was all Russia’s fault."

I've read that paragraph like 10 times now, and I'm still not sure what point he's making about whose propaganda, other than maybe  "YOUR GOVERNMENT IS LYING TO YOU! WAKE UP, SHEEPLE!!!"

Also, "strangely silent?' The administration has not really been all that silent about pinning at least some of the blame on Russia:

Do a quick Google search for "Obama + Russia + Flight 17" and see what pops up:

So I don't really get what "strange silence" he's referring to.

"It’s hard to believe that the U.S., with all of its spy satellites available for monitoring everything in Ukraine that precise proof of who did what and when is not available," he added. 

Really? Hard to believe, is it?  Hard to believe that the US Intelligence community might have missed something? You know, the crack group that didn't foresee the fall of the Berlin Wall?  The guys who took decades to figure out that maybe Aldrich Ames was up to something fishy? Those guys?

I will never understand why people who hold as a fundamental belief that government is inherently incompetent and can do nothing right also somehow believe that the CIA/NSA/etc are omniscient, omnipotent entities capable of pulling off the wildest of conspiracies.

"Questions do remain regarding the serious international incident," Paul wrote last week of the MH17 crash. "Too bad we can’t count on our government to just tell us the truth and show us the evidence. I’m convinced that it knows a lot more than it’s telling us."

 Seriously, can we just have this guy committed already?
