Is the Obama "Ron Paul 'Kill Order'" Real??

Probably not. I've seen a lot of buzz about this [Link has been removed because of reports that the website was giving people viruses. Yikes. -WEM] today in my inbox and on Facebook, and if you've heard about it too and are wondering if it could be possible, I wouldn't take it too seriously.

The website names its source as the Russian Federal Security Service, but they don't link to the alleged report itself, they just link to the Russian agency's website [Link has been removed for aforementioned reason. -WEM]. When I copied and pasted all of its headlines into Google Translate, I saw no headline that could remotely resemble anything about a Ron Paul "kill order," and nothing that even mentioned Obama or Ron Paul.

Not linking to the actual report is annoyingly unhelpful at best, and kind of sketchy at worst. Don't ever suspend your critical thinking and investigative abilities the second you hear a headline that confirms just how evil your opponent is, especially if it sounds too horrible to be true.

Sadly and kind of amusingly at the same time, if Ron Paul doesn't live to be 130, there will be conspiracy theories about his death for years and years. And guess what folks, he's not going to live to be 130. Sometimes people just die of old age. I imagine he could easily live well into his second century by a few years at the level of physical fitness he's in, but he won't live forever.

Let's get ahead of this now and not let a few odd balls distract people from our message of liberty with their half-baked weirdness.
