Why Dick Morris Fears Ron Paul

January 3, 2012 by  

Why Dick Morris Fears Ron Paul

It’s been quite humorous watching Dick Morris switch modes, from dismissing Ron Paul as a nut and a crackpot to hysterically warning people how dangerous he is. In one of his recent lunch videos, Morris ranted nonstop about Paul, going so far as to say: “He is the most radical, liberal candidate running.” Then, on “The O’Reilly Factor,” Morris said: “I think that he is absolutely the most liberal, radical, left-wing person to run for president in the United States in the last fifty years.”

Funny, but I’ve known Ron Paul for more than 30 years, and I see him as one of the purest conservatives in Washington — and certainly the most conservative person in the current field of Republican candidates. I’m talking about true conservatism, which Ronald Reagan accurately described when he said: “The very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism.”

So what, specifically, does Morris not like about Paul? For starters, he says that Paul “has this crazy idea about returning to the gold standard.” Hmm… I never thought of a return to sound money as being a crazy idea. With all due respect, Morris, I think I’ll stick with Friedrich Hayek and Ludwig von Mises on that one.

Other Ron Paul sins, according to Morris, include his desire to:

  • Get rid of the Fed.
  • Legalize drugs. (Sorry, pseudo-conservatives, but the unpleasant reality is that the war on drugs has caused even more violence than the war on alcohol did.)
  • Stay out of other countries’ affairs (which would make it possible to slash our military budget without weakening our national defense).
  • Repeal the Patriot Act, which would reduce government’s ability to snoop on American citizens.

Morris even claimed that Paul favors abortion on demand, paid for by the government.  That’s one I’ve never heard before. Paul has always been adamantly pro-life. Furthermore, he believes the issue of abortion comes under the auspices of the States, not the Federal government.

Why is Morris so worried about a guy he has repeatedly referred to as a nutcase, a crackpot and worse? Because, he says, he is afraid that Paul will run as a third-party candidate and “hand the election to Barack Obama.”

First of all, Paul has never been the nutcase his detractors have tried so hard to label him as. Second, he is one of the most morally sound individuals I have ever known, and he is intellectually sound as well.

In fact, the “crazy uncle” remarks that the fearful media pundits keep throwing out about Paul couldn’t be further from the truth. On the contrary, if Paul has one weakness, it’s that he’s intellectually above the average voter’s head, which sometimes makes it difficult to understand him. 

I admit that a handful of comments purportedly made in Paul’s newsletters in the 1980s and 1990s were over the line, but they certainly were not hardcore racist. More important, he unequivocally renounces them today. Often, Paul’s problem is that he is very uninhibited when it comes to being precise about the law and what he believes to be the truth. Unfortunately, a majority of the population is more interested in political correctness than the Constitution or the truth.

I can speak only from my own firsthand experience. Behind closed doors, I have never heard Paul say anything that even mildly bordered on racism. Nor is he anti-Semitic or anti-Israel. As he explained it to me on a couple of different occasions, he just happens to believe that Israel would be better off without having to answer to the United States.

Putting aside the mudslinging, the bottom line is that, more than any other candidate, Paul stands for freedom. But is such a strong advocate of freedom electable? Morris and other establishment Republicans say absolutely not. And they could be right. But there’s a part of me that wonders if they might just be wrong.

If Paul ran as a third-party candidate — especially if Mitt Romney were the Republican nominee — he would attract not only Tea Party voters, but independents, moderate Democrats and anti-war people of all stripes. While the contrast between Obama and Romney is marginal from a long-term point of view, the contrast between Paul and Obama can be measured only in light years.

Romney is John McCain. Romney is George W. Bush. Romney is Bob Dole. Romney is George Herbert Walker Bush. Romney is Thomas Dewey. Romney is Herbert Hoover. That is why I believe that millions of disgusted and desperate Americans, rather than swallowing McCain Light or accepting four more years of Obama’s anti-American policies, might consider casting their vote for a candidate who stands for pure, unadulterated freedom.

Even if Paul did not win, it would be a Presidential race like no other. And if it resulted in Obama’s re-election, I’m fine with that if it keeps Romney from taking the reins of power and feeding us small doses of socialism day in and day out.

Longtime readers will recall that I took the exact same position in 2008 when it was McCain versus Obama. Early on, I said that I preferred Obama over McCain because his Marxist agenda would finally wake up millions of apathetic Americans. And that’s precisely what happened. In fact, by scaring the hell out of the American electorate, Obama brought the Tea Party into existence.

Unfortunately, the Tea Party has not kept the heat on either Obama or Congress. But if Obama is re-elected, maybe Tea Partiers will be jolted into rising up in earnest — 365 days a year — and will get serious about taking back America.

While Morris says that “Ron Paul is just an absolute nightmare,” I say he would be the perfect person to lead the charge against Obama’s march toward Marxism.

Maybe it’s Morris who’s the crazy uncle?

    Well said, could not have put it better myself.

    • artcohn

      Ron Paul is NOT a conservative! He is a libertarian. He does not want to conserve most anything. He is extremely lax on preserving our freedom. He wants to drasticly cut defense spending and foreign aid to those nations which stand allied with us.

      • Everyday Politics

        It seems to me you have a divergent view of conservatism. The framers of the constitution are my definition of conservative. Veer from that and you flunk the test for conservative.

        • coopinde

          You are confused and need to restudy

      • Refreshthetree

        LOL, you are talking about Neo-cons and don’t even know it. Ron Paul is the texbook definition of a true conservative. He doesn’t want to legalize pot (though forcing the fed to remove its over-reaching laws on drugs could have that effect in some states), and he is not an isolationist but I am sure you believe both of those lies as well.

        • Kevin Nathan

          I, too, get tired of the “isolationist” tag applied to Ron Paul and to Libertarians. They are “separatists” which is precisely what our Founding Fathers were. I have been studying the Founding Fathers and the making of America for the last several years and it is evident that the vast majority of them would be Libertarians today. One of their 28 principles upon which they based the Constitution was, “Peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations, entangling alliances with none.”

          • speedle

            Kevin, Ron Paul is not a Conservative in the sense we define “conservative”. He is in fact an “anti Statist” which, in fact, is more attractive to me than a conservative in many ways. But…….in other very important aspects he is not a man of this century. Regardless of ones ideological position one cannot conduct foreign policy in the same manner it might have been conducted 200 years ago. It just simply is not logical or practical. Paul says Iran hates us because we have meddled with their affairs for decades. Let’s say that is true. It still does not alter the fact that we have to deal with these rag head clowns in a pro-active manner. I don’t think the electorate wants to see an entire U.S. city dirty bombed so that Paul can prove his point.

          • realman

            Speedle, speedle, speedle. What are we going to do with you?

            I hear so many people say, that foreign policy must be different now, that times have changed.

            One thing that hasn’t changed, speedle, is that old man of sin, the human being. The principles of relating to foreign nations is now as it ever was, back in ancient Greece and Sparta, throughout the centuries, and even up to today.

            You really need to take a hard look at what you are saying. You are saying that we need to empire build and intervene in the internal affairs of other nations. WHY? Self defense doesn’t give us that right. And to use the force of the FEDERAL government to do so is an arrogation of powers, and is highly suspect on the grounds that it actually HELPS preserve our interests. I don’t think you or anyone else has made the case that things are SO different these days, that we HAVE to use OUR military and financial resources to make the changes we want to make in our neighbors. Let them be, and let us save our own country before forcing ourselves on them.

          • DaveH

            What you describe, Speedle, is a NeoConservative, not a Conservative.
            But it really doesn’t matter what anybody calls Ron, the question is ‘Do we agree with his Principles?’. I do. I think that Ron Paul is a man who takes his morality seriously, and expects the Government to do the same.

          • speedle

            Realman, you seem to miss the point. Yes, human nature now is the same human nature that was around 2,000 years back. The difference is that 2,000 ago they were throwing spears at each other and marching hundreds of miles to do it. Now the spears are nukes, and a well armed rogue nation simply needs missile technology to place it right between your naive eyes. Get it?

          • RogerW

            So by your logic Speedle, we should attack any non-friendly nation with nuclear capability? Hit them first, just in case they might decide to come after us? Where does it end? Do we attack North Korea next? China? Russia? Never mind the fact that we’re broke and need to take care of our economy before we can support a strong military.
            I presume you’re still young and foolish. Listen to the wiser, more sensible people in this country who know Ron Paul is the only candidate who has our nation and our constitution as his main interest!

          • http://www.RonPaul2012.com Diogenes

            Speedle, saying “… one cannot conduct foreign policy in the same manner it might have been conducted 200 years ago,” is like saying the Golden Rule is outdated.

            A NeoConservative has no problem with the redistribution of wealth called Welfare, as long as it is administered his way.
            A NeoConservative believes in Freedom of Speech as long as it isn’t Sex-related or critical of favored Political figures.
            A NeoConservative believes that War is a good lesson in self-sacrifice and therefore improves a man’s character.
            A NeoConservative doesn’t see the moral conflict in breaking down peoples’ doors and terrorizing families in his efforts to save people from themselves.
            A NeoConservative thinks the Constitution is something to be molded to support his favorite agenda because it’s good for us.

          • Jack

            I would like some one tell me what they think a conservative Is?
            Ron Paul advocates simply “Follow the Constitution” not as Washington interprets it but as the Framers of the Constitution intended it. For example please read you Constitution, ARTICLE 1, SECTION 8, WHICH DEFINES not only the duties, but the responsibilities of Congress:
            “The Congress shall have the Power To, lay and Collect taxes, Duties, imposts, Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States; but all duties , Imposts, and Excises shall be uniform throughout the UNITED STATEs:
            “To borrow Money on the credit of the United States;
            “To Regulate Commerce with foreign Nations and among the several
            States, and with the Indian Tribes.
            “To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization, and uniform Laws on the subject of Bankruptcies throughout the United States;
            “To Coin money, regulate the value thereof, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures:”
            This goes on and calls out the duties and responsibilities of our Congress, but here lies the answer to the Hugh $15 Trillion national debt. For Example no where in this Constitution does it authorize Congress the authority to delegate that private banking Cartel. The Federal Reserve is Federal in name only. It is no more a part of the Federal Government then FedEx, or Federal Trucking, nor Federal Can company. But is a privately owned and privately controlled corporation, owned by the commercial Banks throughout and over 300 of the elite, wealthy famlies throughout the World. Those duties belong to Congress, not to this out-law Unconstitutional Corporation.
            Ron Paul is on the house banking committee and has stressed this violations of our Constitution for years. Who would know more about this then him? LOOK. Every citizen who serves his country took the oath, and this includes every Representative and Every Senator, and the President, himself.
            As it stands now, every dollar now in circulation throughout the world is a debt to our government. Thus to you and me! What we need instead is a “Credit Monetary System”, Where the government creates the money for expansion, instead of the FED and Spends it into circulation. Debt free, as the founding fathers intended.
            Think about this and then answer this letter;.

          • Dave

            Good definition of neoconservative:

            1. Small group of politicians coming from as early as the Ford administration up to the Bush II administration. Extreme left wing Troskyites that decided the Democratic party wasn’t warlike enough for them.

            2. Have a FAKE pretense about believing in smaller government. In reality believe in big spending and tax cuts for their wealthy political and business friends, hence deficit spending.

            3. They FAKE being social conservatives, although true social conservatives **believe** they really care about social issues. Neocons distract the public by acting like they really care about social issues like gay marriage, abortion, and illegal immigration, but don’t actually do anything about them once in power. Meanwhile they are busy conducting wars and stifling your freedom.

            4. Believe in costly wars and creating boogeymen to try and make you think only they can keep you safe while they restrict your freedoms to “protect you”. This is their signature issue, to help keep them in power.

            5. Actually despise any types of small government advocates, i.e. Barry Goldwater, Ron Paul, traditional live and let live conservatives, and libertarians.

      • http://N/A Charles ( aka ) Moby

        I totaly agree with Dick Morris,Ron Paul is very dangerous for this country.Like someone has alreagy said he is a Liberitan,Enough said.

        • Kate8

          Charles – Not sure what a Liberitan is, but the only people who view him as dangerous are the ones who want more of the same. That would be the NWO loyalists on boh the Right and the Left.

          Be aware that whoever gets promoted by the media is already approved by the elite (since they own the entire MSM as their PR branch), so whomever they ignore is probably good for those who would be for the Constitution. If they find that they can no longer ignore someone (such as Ron Paul) they set about to destroy him.

          Haven’t you noticed how they’ve all colluded to remain silent on O’s sealed records and fictional past?

          It’s about time we stop allowing them to tell us how we think, wouldn’t you say?

          • http://yahoo scout

            I concur Kate. I think we are on the same page.

          • What’s Up?

            Well people, If you think it’s bad having a bunch of drunks driving on our highways, just wait until we have a bunch of druggies legally behind the wheel. Also prostitutes where-ever they wish to congregate because that would also be legal under a Ron Paul presidency. Oh, and Israel can go under too.
            Ron Paul—a great big NO.
            What’s Up?

          • Kate8

            What’s – That’s a truly asinine statement.

            Sure, Ron Paul will singlehandedly, most likely by EO, legalize all drugs.

            Aren’t you paying attention? He’s just saying that it does not fall under the authority of the federal government to decide these things. It’s a state issue. He WON’T EVEN ADDRESS IT.

            Sheesh. What’s so hard to understand about that?

            The other candidates have stances on much more dangerous issues that they DO plan to shove on us. None but Ron Paul are concerned about Consttutional constraints.

          • JT

            Sure, just as if there are millions of pot smokers waiting to get behind the wheel if it is made legal in their state. Just like alcohol, if a state made marijuana legal it would be illegal to drive (currently in Medical Marijuana states, it is illegal to drive or smoke outside of your home). All legalizing Marijuana would do is that it would put tax revenue into government and take away all the spending on needless Law Enforcement, Drug enforcement could be focused on hard drugs… Maybe they could even focus on catching more “drunks”….

          • JT

            “Paul was asked whether his libertarian views on such controversial issues — mainly his belief that personal liberties should not be encroached upon by the federal government — could help him attract socially conservative voters. Paul said he believes that states should have the right to legalize gay marriage, marijuana, and prostitution IF THEY CHOOSE TO DO SO!!!!” How is that Ron Paul legalizing any of those things? It is about states rights. For example on any issue…it’s so we don’t have laws that say 55% of states (or people) support, that all states have to follow….

          • Sid

            Very well said,Kate! Well said,indeed!

          • Bill

            What..may use a little hyperbole, but he has a point. St. Louis OD’s for 2011 were approximately 300! Can you imagine what that total might have been with uncontrolled availability? If you are still cool with that, let’s do away with traffic laws, and make it legal to steal! And all legal offenses (like fraud, defamation of character, etc.). Society without reasonable restrictions is chaos and anarchy. Kate, I simply cannot imagine you would be happy driving down a street and being hit head on by someone high on drugs! With legalized drugs that would not be hyperbole any more than being hit head on by someone high on alcohol now! Your “Individual Declaration of Independence from Tyranny” appears interesting at first glance. But after some serious thought, it has too much “I” and “me” in it. I subscribe more to a declaration “of the people, by the people, and for the people” (of which I am one of equal authority, accountability, and responsibility).

          • Betty Jo

            You are right. Ron Paul is good for our country but dangerous to the liberal establishment and the Neo-cons like Romney,Rush, Hannity,Gingrich,Perry.Levin and their ilk. Gingrich is a CFR member. Romney is endorsed by McCain. I say the current foreign policy of intererfering in other nations affairs has been proved wrong many times. Let us quit doing that and see how it works. It worked before all these wars. Take a look at history.

          OUCH. That hurts. A LIBERTARIAN? Horrors.

          What about the principles of the Constitution? Ron is right in line with every single one of them, always has been. The only thing out of line is that the GOP doesn’t know the Constitution, doesn’t know the reasoning behind it, and thinks that the government gives them money for different things than it gives the Democrats money for.

          Two sides of the same coin. Ron takes the whole coin, washes if off, buffs it, and takes the flak when people say it no longer resembles its formerly tarnished self.

          Psychopathic neoconservatives who should never be allowed to have their fingers anywhere near a nuke button are calling Ron Paul dangerous?

        Ron Paul will gladly support our allies. He says we have a piece of paper (US Constitution) that explains how the US goes to War. He said we will follow that piece of paper that most Americans have forgotten about!

            The ACLU is a socialist organization. Founded initially, and populated currently by Socialists! Forget them!

      • RageFury

        Actually you are being a tad bit narrow minded. You are trying to paint with a black and white brush, on a subject that has many shades of grey.
        Ron Paul is 100% Fiscally Conservative. There is not a candidate, to include Obama, who is even close to Ron Paul here.
        Historically Conservatives(like Ohio Senator Robert Taft) were non-interventionists as is Ron Paul, like it or not.
        Conservatives also used to be for smaller and non-intrusive Government, just like Ron Paul, though Ron Paul may be a bit more extreme here as he supports a Constitutionally bound Federal Government. Though seemingly most so called Conservatives are all about expanding Government. Is that just me imagining things or am I spot on here?

        Of course socially Ron Paul is all about individual liberty and freedom which of course comes with more individual responsibility. Ron Paul is also strongly for following the Constitution.
        So unless Conservatives really are AGAINST less spending, smaller and less intrusive Government, Liberty, personal responsibility and the Constitution, I would say Ron Paul is a Conservative Constitutionalist with a Libertarian twist.
        In essence he is the perfect Conservative solution for the present day litany of issues crushing this nation and what it used to stand for…

        • What’s Up?

          Who says Obama is a fiscal conservative??? Wheere have you been?
          What’s Up?

        • Alan

          Nice analogy of Dr Paul’s positions. I would say that I fit right into the category of Conservative Constitutionalist with a Liberterian twist! It’s like our conversations between my groups of paleo-Conservatives, If we fix the economic problems of our great Nation, then the social issues will just kind of fix themselves. Leave the States and the People alone and let us figure out what is best for us! These know-it-better Neo-Cons are going to be the death of the USA and Liberty as a whole. I just say this, Neo-Cons ought to rebrand their political spectrum as Neo-Fascism and get it over with!

      • Ralph R.

        Mr. Ron Paul is the only conservative among all of the candidates,but we
        don’t hear about the others that are also running,they are trying to isolate Ron Paul like they did to Pat Buchanan,he won in that sector but the regular Joes didn’t like it so it was rigged to make him lose,he then lost and look at where we are today and look at what we have in the whitehouse now…A muslim,I’m sure he will round up all of the christians soon like they arrested a christian in Iran and threaten him with death if he doesn’t change his religion-forced religion,that’s where we are headed here in America and they have 50 terrorist training camps here now (muslim)terrorists,but remember we are trying to get rid of terrorists overseas,only to have them open up training camps on our own soil,the person that killed alot of American Military in Texas was influenced enough to where he shot Americans,proof we have sleepers here in America (terrorists)put them in the fema camps they made for us,test the guillotines out on them!!!

        I realize I wont change your mind and I respect your strong feelings on this matter, but I have to ask how did you come to your conclusion. Through my own research I have found Dr. Paul to represent all the right things. I base my conclusion on his well documented personal life and public life (congressional voting record). I am also curious why you feel like its our responsibility to police the world. I realize its better to be proactive and stop tyranny but shouldn’t we stop it here first. Not since the British ruled us as colonies or Lincoln suspended the writ of Habeas Corpus has the average American been striped of their rights. We are headed toward a police state governed by a two party ruling class of Democrats and Republicans…. Your vote for Dr. Paul may be the last time we get to debate freely. I pray you will re-consider.

        Did you know that Ron Paul’s proposed military budget is FOUR TIMES that of China’s and larger than GW’s in 2005?

        Or that our troops (in both 2008 and 2012) donate more to Ron Paul’s campaign than to ALL others – including the Commander in Chief – COMBINED? Want to support the troops? Give them the Commander in Chief they WANT.

        Michael Scheuer, former head of the CIA’s Bin Ladin unit, endorsed Ron Paul days before the Iowa caucus. Judge Napolitano interviewed him about this on Fox – find it on youtube.

        We cannot run around bombing POTENTIAL enemies because they MIGHT get nukes. With China and Russia backing Iran, we could well start WW III.

    • JJM

      I agree with 98% of what Ringer says. Used to look forward to Morris’ daily messages but his attack on the True Constitutionalist is an attack on all Patriots. In fact, when recently trying to comment – no access to comment section to post OR read. Believe that Morris is part of the establishment bent on dismantling our Constitution.
      Ron Paul is the Consistent Constitutionalist, will continue to fight for our Liberty and Freedom and is least likely to sell us out to more big government control. The federal government was set up to provide for national defense and protection of our liberties (ie protect us from unconstitutional state or community laws) NOT to control everything we do, say, hear, read and own. “1984″ should have more properly been titled “2034″, that is where we are headed if we continue to gice away our freedom.

    • Phil

      Ron Paul can’t win either as a Republican or an Independent because he’s just to old. He will be past 80 years old by the end of his first term. His age will become an issue as it should be. At his age his physical and mental health are a year by year issue. Can he stand the pressure a fast pace and long hours the office of president requires, for four long years. He would be a one term president from his first day in office. If he runs as an independent he will be a distraction for the congress and senate races, which is good for the Demoncrats.

From that list I’m betting they are batting 100%. What about you? which of those would you think is non/Christian?? A particluar “religion” is not an issue since the 1st Amendment forbids laws relative to “religion”
          If Christians are violating someones civil rights they will be there against them as to that particular conduct! Christians have no more rights to a particular social conduct than any other religion. Sheer numbers do not enlarge civil rights.

      Anyone who says its alright for Iran to have a nuclear weapon is not capable of leadership, IMHO. Libertarians are essentially idealistic conservatives, and as such, do not deal well in a realistic world. The world has a history or taking advantage of idealists (remember Neville Chamberlain?). Ron Paul would have us be a isolationist country, more so than any other politician in history. The truth is, we are stuck with the mantle of the most powerful country in the world (when we do not allow for decay from within) and have to lead the world, as we have done for the better part of two centuries. There are no other good guys to lead the world but us. We, literally, saved the world twice in the 20th century, and that burden has not changed. To not face it, would be to look at the world unrealistically (as Ron Paul does, in spades). We just need to quit playing political correctness internally to the degree that it is destroying us, forcing our attention from world leadership.

      • RageFury

        How would you successfully stop Iran for getting them? Military action?
        Any fool who advocates military action against Iran is not fit to lead any Nation, let alone the one I dwell in! Iran is no Iraq and certainly not at all like Afghanistan. If you recall your history and who supported whom during the cold war years, this is plainly clear.
        Military action against Iran will pit the US against Russia and/or China on the Battle field. Both countries are nuclear powers and both countries have considerable military might and that might is in the region.
        Only a moron would consider military action a possible tool against Iran. Not that we can afford more wars presently and certainly not after we are forced to bail out Europe.
        Since the US has invaded and or bombed many of Iran’s neighbors they would be fools to not want Nukes. Ron Paul’s solution is stop the nonsense overseas and rightly so. We can’t afford it and it will create more of those scary terrorists we are told to be afraid of…
        Why continue the pattern of meddling, killing and creating even more terrorists? It is a completely absurd policy.

      • ChristyK

        Ron Paul is a non-interventionist, not an isolationist. He believes in interacting with all nations, but not being the world’s policeman. All great empires have failed because of overextention of their military and/or excessive debt. Does this sound familiar? We cannot defend ourselves, much less the world, if we are broke. The sooner we pull back our troops and quit tryiing to police the world, the sooner we can get our finances in order. If we keep overspending on defense (really offense) we will go bankrupt and will have no military and no economy.

        We keep giving foreign aid to countries/groups who are supposedly our allies and then end up fighting them later (Al Qaeda, Sadam Hussein, etc.). This is the definition of insanity. Having all of our troops spread around the world with very few troops actually in the US, does not make us safe. What if we really are attacked? Would we be safer with our troops stationed in the US are spread around the world in 800+ different bases?

        Instead of parroting what the establishment says about what would make us safe, people need to read history. To study what we did in the past and what the results have been. If you look at our military history up intil the world wars, we acted similarly to what Ron Paul wants to do. We kept our nation’s budget under control and were friends with most of the world. We were safe and prosperous. Since then, we have meddled aroung the world, especially since the world wars. We have many peoples and nations that hate us. We are on the verge of bankruuptcy. We are having our young soldiers killed and maimed daily. We are fight the same people that we set up as leaders and fighters at an earlier date. Which policy really works?

      • realman

        Oh really? Why not tell that to Russia? China? India?

        No, you reserve your challenges for smaller weaker countries. What principles are you espousing? What about the Constitution permits OFFENSE and AGRESSION in foreign countries, and the taking away of their natural rights? We are permitted self defense as our natural God given rights, and of course we can always use the anti Missile defense that Reagan promoted. But what gives us the right to invade other countries, “pre-emptively”?

        Are you allowed to pre-emptively invade your neighbors houses because you fear they are stockpiling weapons to attack you later? If you don’t, how do you delegate that right to your government ? We delegate our authority to our leaders, where did they pick up that right and power and authority?

      • glen

        Another 2 dimensional American. I hope you will look somewhere other than your high school American history book for answers. I would like you to go back to 1942 and American Interventionism in Iran. Start there and you will have a better understanding of Iran. Please also look to see which committee’s Dr. Paul sits on in Congress and what type of direct security information he is privy to. I’ll take his word on “the bomb”. Are you still looking for those weapons of mass destruction we went in Iraq for? {side note} we gave them to Saddam when he was “our man”. Please take some time to review the history Dr. Paul was actually part of. If you want to fight that bad, go down to your local recruiter and sign up, other wise keep in mind that if war breaks out among Americans you’ll be fighting ME.

    • Vic Bailey

      Ron Paul can not save a country that does NOT want to be saved, the STUPID American people want to be in chains to this Socialist government, because they say they are fed up BUT elect the same bunch of [expletive deleted] every time. So I say they deserve it, I will stand and fight to save my family and friends but the STUPID people are on their own! Let them have Bama and the other Monkeys on the Elitist chains. Ron Paul will have my vote even if I have to write it in, like I did the last time! Semper Fi.

    • Jim

      Ron Paul is a nut job. He contantly spouts off about the war on drugs being a failure, yet does not have the facts to back this claim. He does not see that the war on drugs has produced great results. It is not 100% and never will be. It is a war of constant vigilence. I could never support any candidate that is pro-legalizing drugs. Mr. Paul has expressed that he would like to see dispensaries and that it would be a great thing. He has not seen what legalization has done in Europe. He has not seen what it has done in California.

      • Holdon

        Jim,

        You say the war on drugs is “constant vigilance”, It is more like “Constant Violence” just like prohibition in the 20′s. It just creates violent mobsters/cartels/and corruption and cost billions every year.

        If decriminalized would you start doing drugs ?

        What has happened in Europe ?

        Please read this short article by Richard Branson about the results after 10 years of decriminalization in Portugal (in Europe).

        I have no interest in using drugs, however, I have read where in Europe they set up places for the druggies to go to use. They can not
        leave the site with anything. If they want to kill themselves its their choice. Give it to them. The only thing i wish Ron Paul would
        be stronger on is immigration. He is a wuss in that department.

        • mjr47

          I’ve taken the time to read about 75% of the posts on this site. There have been highly intelligent conversations…and a lot of name calling. The Republican race is holding our attention. I believe that the Democrats are using this time to use the money that Obama has amassed to focus on getting the next election into a another Democratic controlled Congress. That way, no matter which Party wins, the Socialist Agenda will continue. WE ARE BEING MANIPULATED LIKE PAWNS IN A GAME OF CHESS. We should counter this by focusing our attention back to keeping control in Congress. Yes, it is important WHO gets the nomination…but, the media has already done all that they could to make Dr. Paul invisible to those who believe the “news” they see on TV. Ron Paul is doing HIS part in trying to win this campaign. We need to support him with the power base in Congress to follow through if he can win the White House!! We are in a WAR within our own Country to save America, the Constitution and our own Freedoms as Citizens. Dr. Paul says he wants to secure our borders…AND our coastlines. He does not support Amnesty or Anchor Babies…they are breaking the Law by being here. FIRST, securing the Borders to STOP the illegal entrance…then deal with the problem that exists. Build up the Military within our Country. If we HAVE to go to war…get approval from Congress…then go in…get the job done…and come home. Don’t stay and try to fix their problems. It would be a long time before THEY would become a problem again…and a lesson for any one else wanting to mess with us. As far as prostitutes…and drugs…Dr. Paul says to let each State take care of their own problems. When Govt gets involved, we have agencies like DOJ doing stupid things like walking over 2,000 guns into Mexico…nuf said?? If you REALLY want to know WHO Ron Paul is and WHAT he stands for…go to youtube…there are literally thousands of videos and interviews. Get informed before you start saying he is scary. SCARY is the Govt. we already have that hides TRUTH from us and uses “secret programs” to steal our Liberties. SCARY is the politicians who lie to us and are only saying what they want us to believe about them. Just check their voting records and what they have supported. Only ONE has consistently stood for the Constitution!! Obama “thinks” he is exceptional… brilliant… and said he is bored because he has never felt challenged by Life. Well, Obama IS “challenged”… by his incompetence.

      • glen

        Jim, How many people are hurt by “legal drugs” everyday? How many people die from smoking each year? How about alcohol? You can not legislate stupid. As a responsible society we only have an obligation to protect those who “can not” protect themselves. The rest of us are on our own. Perhaps we should work on personal responsibility and accountability (punishment) before we make more blanket rules that interfere with the responsible among us.
        By the way I would choose not to do drugs…. But I like having the ability to choose.

            Oh? The billions of dollars of foreign aid to Israel come back to the United States?? How so???

End all foreign aid to other nations, including our “gallant ally” Israel. Check out the history of Israel and how they betrayed the United States numerous times by giving American military secrets to countries like the former U.S.S.R. and how they attacked the intelligence ship U.S.S. Liberty in 1967 while it was in international waters?? Have any doubts of that?? Check out the Navy veterans own website from people that were on that ship that fateful day – http://www.usslibertyveterans.org/ and see for yourself!!!

RFK was moving forward with legal action when his brother’s head was blown off. Ever since then there has been no further mention of such legal action. So we must concede that at least a portion of American aid comes back here. Legitimately? Hardly.

Remember the WMD excuse for invading Iraq, and all the mainstream media marching in unquestioning lock-step?) Maybe Iran really is trying to make a nuke. Or maybe…. Just maybe this another “WMD” excuse??? I mean plenty of other countries have nukes so why is Iran so “special” that we have to go attack them? OK, so let’s assume it’s true. Iran really is building a nuke. Do you really think Iran would be so stupid and suicidal as to take that ONE nuke and lob it at the US when they know they are outnumbered by tens of thousands to ONE? WHY? I can think of two other reasons why Iran is so “special”. 1; The military industrial complex needs constant war to justify it’s existence and budget and profit. 2; OIL…. And the control of the strait of Hormuz.

            It could fire its Chinese missiles at any one of our ships in the Gulf. Missiles could be launched from improvised platforms constructed on Iranian merchant ships. On any given day, there are 25000 merchant ships, under all flags, plying the sea lanes, much of it headed our way.

This is confirmed and could be a practice run for sending a freighter off one of our coasts to shoot a nuke tipped missile over the central U.S. Such an event could cause a massive EMP event that could cripple our electrical grid system, disable most vehicles and electronics, cause massive social upheaval and ultimately could cause the death of over 150 million Americans.

        In a speech in San Francisco, top Gen. Wesley Clark recounted a memo drafted by former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld’s office in the wake of 9-11 that was brought to his attention by a top Pentagon official. The neo-con’s plot, he was told, was “to attack and destroy the governments in seven countries in five years—we’re going to start with Iraq and then we’re going to move to Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia and Iran.” Clark said the neo-cons “wanted us to destabilize the Middle East, turn it upside down, and make it under our control.” This plan was already established in 1991 by Defense official Paul Wolfowitz.
        How would you react if this happened to you and you had only limited resources to defend yourself??? Our actions have opened the door for the radical element of the Muslims to come to the forefront in their defense and try and unite them into a caliphate. Had we stayed clear from the beginning they would content themselves in inter-tribal rivalry as they have done for a thousand years.

        • Sunshine49

          That was Ron Paul’s point exactly even though Muslims had attacked us many times before 9/11. It goes all the way back to when England gave the Jews the area that they call their homeland of Israel after W.W.II. America pushed the U.N. to recognize the State of Israel and American Jews backed the fight financially.

          Jews and Muslims have been fighting for centuries so when we backed Israel we became an enemy to the Muslim religious fanatics. Most people should already know that one of Islam’s most sacred sites, the Dome of the Rock, sits right on top of one of the Jews most sacred sites — their original Temple. Of course they are going to fight over who has control of this area.

          We stepped into the middle of a religious war that won’t be solved or won until Jesus returns.

          Since Jews are taught that Jesus was NOT the Messiah, I sometimes wonder why we are involved in their religious war? They are far better armed (by us) than any other country in the Mideast. They could wipe most of the other countries off the map without our help.

          Dick Morris is Jewish and maybe he is afraid that if Ron Paul became President he wouldn’t let the U.S. fight Israel’s battles for them anymore or keep giving them billions in foreign aid and equipment?

          The road to hell is paved with good intentions. We can’t afford to be the policemen of the world anymore. In fact, our Constitution says that we should mind our own business and stay OUT of foreign entanglements. So Ron Paul is right about our foreign affairs!

            Great rebuttal Sunshine49!

          • Walt

            Just a little background info on the comment that Britain gave the Jews Palestine.

            The Zionists in London sent cables to the United States, to Justice Brandeis (Jewish), saying “Go to work on President Wilson. We’re getting from England what we want. Now you go to work on President Wilson and get the United States into the war.” That’s how the United States got into the war.

            There was absolutely no reason for World War I to be our war. We were railroaded into (we were suckered into) that war merely so that the Zionists of the world could obtain Palestine. That is something that the people of the United States have never been told. They never knew why we went into World War I.

            After we got into the war, the Zionists went to Great Britain and they said: “Well, we performed our part of the agreement. Let’s have something in writing that shows that you are going to keep your bargain and give us Palestine after you win the war.” They didn’t know whether the war would last another year or another ten years. So they started to work out a receipt. The receipt took the form of a letter, which was worded in very cryptic language so that the world at large wouldn’t know what it was all about. And that was called the Balfour Declaration.

            The Balfour Declaration was merely Great Britain’s promise to pay the Zionists what they had agreed upon as a consideration for getting the United States into the war.

            The other side of that same coin was that the Jewish World Congress and Jewish international bankers called for and suceeded in getting a boycott (like sanctions on Iran today) on Germany. This crippled Germany’s ability to continue the war and resulted in forcing them to surrender at Versailles. This boycott was supported by German Jews as well and resulted in Hitler’s famous comment “the stab in the back”, referring to the betrayal of Germany by German Jews. Jews in Germany and throughtout Europe paid a heavy price for this “stab”.

          • Walt

            The first part of this statement is not exactly correct. The true Jews (Sephardic) and Muslims had lived in relative peace throughout the Muslim territories.

            Having visited El Escorial (a few miles outside Madrid), the massive palace/church/monestary complex built by Phillip II, I noticed a huge mural depicting a massive battlefield. Christian armies confronting Muslim with the crescent and Jewish soldiers with the Star of David.

            Throughout Spain and elsewhere in the Muslim world, Muslims and Jews lived in relative peace. In Spain, many Muslim controlled major cities had Jewish quarters and Synogogues. Secular Turkey was founded by the Crypto-Jew Ataturk.

            The real divergence between Muslims and Jews has taken place just quite recently, as a result of the Palestine issue. The Arabs view the European Jews as invaders who don’t belong in the Middle East. They recognize that they are not racially or genetically Jewish, being that they are of Ashkanazi bloodlines, unlike the true racial Jews, the Sephardic Jews, who lived peacefully with them throughout the centuries in the Muslim lands.

          The world has been fighting Muslim terrorism for 1400 years. Muslim is not a religion, it is an occult started by Mohhumed written by Satan. Allah is not God he is Satan!!!!

          • Walt

            Yes Gene, Europe has been fighting the agressive Muslim onslaught since the Muslims crossed the Straits of Gibraltar in 711. They were defeated in 732 in Tours France by Charles Martel (The Hammer) and ran back to Spain, like dogs with their tails between their legs. They settled back quietly into Spain for over 700 years, until finally defeated by Christian armies at the fall of Granada in 1492, by King Ferdinand & Queen Ysabel.

            While the Muslims had been defeated in one corridor leading to the heart of Europe, they persistently tried getting in the back door through the Balkens. They were eventually defeated at the gates of Vienna and retreated back into Turkey, leaving a smattering of Muslim bloodline enclaves in the Balkens, which Serbia tried to remove and which Clinton prevented in the 1990′s.

            Today, with the spineless liberal/socialist governments heading the various European states and Britain, the Muslims hoards now number close to 30 million within France, Spain, Italy, Germany and even in Scandanavian contries like Sweden, Norway and Denmark.

      • DD

        Amen about Morris being right 95% of the time, although the issue is Ron Paul here. My concern is not his intellect, nor his financial & economic conservatism, nor his concern about government spying. But as someone else said recently, “I wish I lived in his World as he sees it”. But his foreign policy isolationism is just too scary in today’s global society. I’m trying to see a difference between his idea of “talking nice” to Iran, and Obama’s 2008 “We should talk & reason with Iran”. How has that worked out?

        The issue is military nuclear material in irresponsible hands, coupled with a laiason with Venezuela’s Chavez, and the open route up thru Mexico and across our “open” border. And I haven’t heard Paul address any part of that scenario. Yes, Chavez could get material from others if Iran doesn’t supply him, but the issue is preventing harm from where ever it may come.

        As I have said before on this blog, Ron Paul for Sec of the Treasury; with a Tea Party Congress, he could become a martyr there.

        And the Tea Party Congress is just as important as beating Obama. Even a Republican Progressive President (and none of the current candidates are thought to be in Soros’s pocket like BHO is) would be virtually toothless to promote progressive values with a Tea Party Congress.

        • kkflash

          DD, you’re wrong about Paul not addressing the Mexican border issue. He definitely wants to strengthen our southern border security. He’d like to do it with some of the troops that are currently stationed in over 130 countries throughout the world. Those troops are spending American dollars boosting other countries economies. Another good reason to bring them back to the good ol’ USA.

          • Sam

            You best call Dr. Paul and tell him that he is not in favor of open borders, because he always has been. He is a Libertarian, not a Republican, or a conservative. Conservatives don’t want to cut the defense budget,or let Iran have nuclear weapons.

        • kkflash

          P.S. I’d like to see Ron Paul as President, but failing that, he’d make a great Secretary of the Treasury as you suggest.

        • DaveH

          DD says “But his foreign policy isolationism is just too scary in today’s global society”.
          First of all, Ron Paul is NOT an isolationist. He is a Non-Interventionist. He wants to trade peaceably with the world and stay out of their Politics. How would you like if the Chinese came over here and helped out Obama?
          Secondly, it’s you and your immoral war-mongering fellows, who are spending our money and soldiers’ lives trying to save the world but instead creating enemies everywhere, who are the “scary” people.

        • http://lamebrained-ideas.blogspot.com C.Davis

          I disagree as to why Morris fears Ron Paul. My theory is that mainline pundits fear him because he will absolutely, positively NOT compromise on the constitution and bill of rights. A Ron Paul presidency would mean a screeching halt to the bolshevik agenda we can all see approaching.All their years of undermining the republic? For naught? Hell no! we can’t have Ron Paul! Bearded men under our beds, etc., etc., etc.

        • Richard Pawley

          I must agree that if the Senate is not radically changed in ten months it will make little difference which Republican is elected. What the liberal media don’t seem to understand is that if the socialists continue to spend as they have been in Washington the resulting inflation in food and fuel and everything we really need is going to affect them as well. NO ONE IS GOING TO BE EXEMPT! I feel quite confident in saying that just about anything you can think of (except perhaps houses for which there will be no or little financing) will soon cost at least three times what they do now! Some believe even more.

          In Chapter 9 of my last book, I wrote of the things that had been discovered in what is called The Bible Code, a factual code based primarily on the Hebrew Old Testament and mathematical probability. Researchers found Obama’s name just as they did the names of many who have affected the world for good or evil. “Barack Obama – you will be astonished!” was one. “B. Obama is settling down. Abject suffering accompanies him,” and there were others. Now what this all means remains to be seen but I believe that the tripling of prices that has been set in motion by the president and the congress and their insane spending of all they can borrow or print, is going to result in much suffering for Americans and others all over the world. While the billionaires are trying to figure out how to become multi-billionaires, the “little people” (the middle class as they like to call us) are becoming more concerned with how to survive and prosper in a time of great want, food shortages, and the increasing socialism that will be the answer to the chaos caused by congressional carelessness with our counterfeit monies. Of course the collapse of the Euro could do the same and these “are the last days of normalcy as we have known them.”

          The point is we must replace most of those in Congress or it will make little difference in the long run. It is highly probable that gas will be $4 a gallon again this summer and it could set new records. Ultimately I expect it will be at least $10 a gallon and that too, will add to the cost of food when we have to bring it an average of 1,500 miles to where it is eaten. All I can do is try to persuade those who are in denial no matter what they hear to play a little game of “What if!”. I do not know how much time we have but it is less and less as we go deeper into the hole and just keep printing money.

          They just raised the National Debt and now they want to raise it another 1,200 BILLION DOLLARS more! PEOPLE WAKE UP: THIS IS WHAT WILL CAUSE INFLATION THE LIKES OF WHICH NO NATIVE BORN AMERICAN HAS EVER SEEN HERE. If those who insist it can’t happen here don’t prepare with whatever you have you will be angry at everyone when it all hits the fan but everyone is responsible for themselves. Learn all you can while you can or you will regret it more than anything you have ever regretted. I am not going to write much more here as it is to time consuming and it’s to much like preaching to the choir. I also agree that the election in 10 months will be the most important one in our lifetime. May God bless all who read this.

      The Liberal/Progressive/ Satanic movement to implement a New World Order or One World Government to enslave all mankind is at the forefront of what is taking place at this time. The strategists of this movement have vowed that they will position their people to infiltrate and capture the pinnacle of power of every major organization, movement, or political party and neutralize or destroy it. They will use these organizations and movements to divert attention away from their implementation of a New World Order to chasing a multitude of other issues. Those who insist on drawing attention to the New World Order and its fanatical angel The Federal Reserve Banks will be destroyed with character assassination or outright assassination. Ron Paul is the only candidate that dares to attack the pinnacle of power of this Liberal/Progressive/ Satanic movement. It does not matter how many other victories we win, once the New World Government is in place, they will simply wipe out everyone and everything that get in their way, like they do in every Communist takeover. So far they have liquidated over one hundred seventy million people in order to consolidate their power.

Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling in terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand.

      You’re on a website called the “personal liberty digest” – of course people are going to flock to Ron Paul – he’s the only candidate in any party who is watching out for our liberties.

      And I’d prefer to think of it as an oasis AGAINST the propaganda, since the real propaganda is what is being reported (or not reported) by the media.

      • NC

        Bob, I, too, have heard some very unknid words spoken about Mr. Paul but it was not by the media. It was on live television but it was spoken by the people(REPUBLICANS) of the same party Mr. Paul CHOSE to seek the presidency. It seems the Republicans and the Libertarians have lost their claim that the “lame stream media” “unfairly” accuses them of things when they, the Republican candidates, accuse each other of the SAME things that appeared in that “awful old lame stream media.” AND THE REPUBICAN AUDIENCE CHEERED THEM WHEN THEY DID IT!!!!!!!!!!

      Everyone wants freedom to pursue their happiness but they want to deny others the freedom to pursue their happiness. If everyone agreed that everyone has the freedom to pursue their happiness in such a way as not to deny others the freedom to pursue their happiness there would be very little need for conflict. Ron Paul said freedom brings people together therefor he is crucified by the intolerant. Under freedom we use persuasion to win people to our way of thinking not force.

    • Joe C

      i will admit his legalization of drugs can be a little too much for everyone to swallow without knowing what the outcome can be, but only ignorant people will dismiss the fact that both parties have the same agendas, exploiting the U.S for special interest. This country has been sucked dry for decades and the special interest are nervous that their party could be over. If Ron Paul doesnt get the Nom i only hope his son will run 2016 and carry the torch. And by the way i am a solid Republican all my life .

        “i will admit his legalization of drugs can be a little too much for everyone to swallow without knowing what the outcome can be”

        The interesting part is, if people would actually listen to what he is saying… he doesn’t necessarily promote “legalization” as much as he does the fact that the Central Government should not illegalize it. He concedes that a State certainly has a right to regulate or prohibit drugs of all kinds, but it shouldn’t be federal government telling the nation what to do in such regard. The problem is when a state legalizes a drug, such as marijuana for medical reason, the federal government is coming in to override the state, and that is the biggest problem today.

        • Kate8

          TML – Yes, his opponents are twisting his Constitutional stance on state sovereignty to make him appear to promote or oppose issues he does not.

          If people would look deeper, they would see that his position on the issues is exactly what it should be. Whether he is personally for or against any single issue is less relevant than who or what he sees as having authority over said issues.

          • NC

What’s kooky about a different approach to the failed war on drugs? What’s kooky about returning the nation (& the world) to sound money? If any of Ron Paul’s ideas are kooky, sign me up for a strait jacket.

      • eddie47d

        When it comes to the war on drugs we have become an unworkable police state. Where folks are busted sitting in their car smoking a joint,given a felony record,and harassed until they die by the court system and employment offices. Yet the authorities claim they are winning the War on Drugs by jailing pot users.

      think about the war on drugs (we lost) all their doing is spending money and putting a few small fry in jail, they could’nt stop alcohol that you need big trucks to haul? also look around you drugs are everywhere even in schools and thats not counting the legal stuff.

      Frank,

      If you are in disagreement with RP’s positions regarding foreign policy, perhaps you should take the time to read this article.

      http://www.ronpaul.com/2011-12-30/iowas-choice-dr-paul-or-u-s-bankruptcy-more-wars-and-many-more-dead-soldiers-and-marines/

      In it, a clear explanation of why Ron Paul’s views are perhaps not so strange after all. To understands where he is coming from, one has to know the history. On all other aspects, Ron Paul has spent numerous years stating facts and can justify his position. Why would anyone think that on his foreign policy position, he would have spent less time studying and forming his opinions and beliefs?

      Enjoy, and I hope the article helps at least a bit.

  • Linda

    I could not disagree more with this article. All a person has to do is read and study what Paul is proposing as his agenda. Dismantling the military is mistake #1, a isolationist approach to foreign policy is mistake #2, encouraging Marial Law is destructive of our Bill of Rights and goes against our Constitution so mistake #3.

    Ron Paul is no libertarian, nor is he a true conservative; he is more radical left that most Democrats and right in league with Obama.

    Read what he proposes, listen to his agenda; to find him even remotely Conservative is ludicrous.

    • Laurie Tudor

      Who are you Lynda, not one thing you have said is correct, I will support Ron Paul for you if you haven’t the courage to support freedom and conservative ideals.

      • Kate8

        My conservative sister made those same points expressed by Linda, based on a article she emailed me written by Star Parker. Star went on about how dangerous Ron Paul is.

        It really serves to unmask these “conservative” mouthpieces. I always liked Star, but now I see that she is just another politcal pundit.

        People like Parker are hurting the cause of those fighting to return America to its foundations. We need to work hard to counter this assault from the Right, because that is the weakness in the link.

        It just means that we have to work harder to expose the two-party lie and spread the truth.

        • Karolyn

          Agreed.

    • GRusling

      Obviously you’re not familiar with what Ron Paul proposes, but you have a lot of company there because many people can’t understand what his policy is.

      Do you support the US Constitution? If you do, you should be a Ron Paul supporter. If not, you’re just another useful idiot of the “Big Government” political machine which has been leading America toward its own destruction for over 100 years…

      • eddie47d

    • Alex Frazier

      Linda, WTF! are you talking about? None of that is true. Not even remotely. Not even taken out of context and twisted on its head. Ron Paul doesn’t want to dismantle the military. He wants to bring them home and eliminate the expense of having them stationed all over the world. Neither is he an isolationist. He advocates that we not be a nation of military busy-bodies. Just because something’s going on doesn’t mean we have to be in the middle of it. If the people of a country are upset, it’s not our job to take down their leader, blow up their homes, and rebuild their country at our own expense. And Ron Paul damn sure isn’t for martial law.

      You need to take your own advice and read what he proposes and listen to his agenda. To find him anything but Conservative is ludicrous.

    • Karolyn

      Methinks you’ve been listening to too much anti-Paul propaganda, and really don’t know anything about what he stands for.

    • mickey

      1. Dismantling the military, I hardly think so, he wants to make it stronger HERE, no in someplace like Germany/Japan. We kept troops in those countries to keep them from re-arming. Are they are a threat now, how? With NDAA passed and obama declaring himself dictator, where would you want your oath keepers?

      2. Isolation? Check the meaning and look up non-intervention while you are at it. China practiced isolation (no trade) until about 30 yrs ago. Now look where they are. They can also destroy us economically, so why not bomb them instead? Same with Mexico with the southern border, anyone can come in, we don’t know who they are nor where they are.

      3. Martial law? Look at what NDAA just did. Paul wants this GONE.

      You are one of the few people still hanging onto we still have a republic. Believing we have two parties of choice.

      Ron Paul is the only candidate standing for the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. That is scary to the repubs and the dems. No more insider trading, no more endless wars, no more Congress (obama just did away with it).

      There were 1 BILLION hits on Google for Ron Paul.

    • Bob in Boston

      It’s easy to lash out at misinformed people, since Ron Paul gets attacked by purposely mis-representing his positions so often, but it’s more useful to talk you through your points one by one.
      1) Ron Paul has never once advocated dismantling the military. He has specifically said that we need a strong national defense, and as a veteran who receives more donations from military people than all other candidates combined, including Obama, he knows what he’s talking about.
      2) Non-interventionism is actually nothing like isolationism – you’ve got that confused. Non-interventionalism means we don’t make enemies by invading their lands or supporting their enemies. Instead we only attack people when they attack us. By trading with everyone, we give them economic motivation to not screw with us, which is just as strong as military motivations, but actually helps our economy. Plus the fact that we are borrowing 40 cents of every dollar from China to act as another country’s military is just ridiculous! Let them either borrow money from China themselves, or pay us to help them if they are attacked.
      3) I’m assuming ‘Marial’ (sic) is “Marital” law, and you’ve got the wrong information there too. Ron Paul believes that the federal government should get out of the issue of Marriage altogether. Marriage was something created by the church and it was somehow coopted by the government at some point in our history. Instead, we should use the concept of “civil unions” for determination of legal status, and leave Marriage up to the states and the church where they belong.

      If you go on youtube and listen to some of Ron Paul’s speeches, you’ll quickly find that most of what you think you know about him is actually disinformation spread by the media. Once you listen to the man speak first hand you’ll realize that he’s by far the most conservative candidate running, and definitely the most intelligent. That’s why he was warning us for years about the housing crash and the negative affects of the Fed, even while everyone else in Washington (including many of the current crop of candidates) was saying he didn’t know what he was talking about. He was right, and he still is!

      • R from Nevada

        Right on Bob

    • kkflash

      You are so wrong! Ron Paul has not proposed dismantling the militar. He just wants to put it back in its proper place, defending THIS country instead of 130 others. He has never suggested martial law. In fact, he stands for direct opposition to the military rule that is martial law. Most importantly, he stands for the rights of individuals, and the strict limitations to centralized governmental power that this country was founded upon, and that are demanded by our Constituion.

    • Mark Are

      Apparently your source of political news is the National Enquirer. You are not onlyh off base on EVERY one of the points you make, you are WAY off base.

      Linda says “All a person has to do is read and study what Paul is proposing as his agenda. Dismantling the military is mistake #1″.
      No, Linda, he doesn’t want to dismantle the military. He wants to stop the Empire building and being the World’s Policemen.

      Linda says “a isolationist approach to foreign policy is mistake #2″.
      No, Linda, Ron Paul is not an isolationist, he is a Non-Interventionist. He believes, as do I, that the US ought to butt out of other countries’ politics.

      Linda says “encouraging Marial Law is destructive of our Bill of Rights and goes against our Constitution so mistake #3″. Where in the world did you get that Ron Paul “encourages” Martial Law? It is exactly the opposite since he is a strict Constitutionalist.

      Linda says “Ron Paul is no libertarian, nor is he a true conservative”.
      Wrong again, Linda. Ron Paul follows Libertarian Principles well, and thus he IS a True Conservative since Libertarian Principles parallel those that our Founders such as Thomas Jefferson and James Madison professed.

      You’re Batting Zero, Linda. You’ve been brainwashed well.

It’s the same agenda that Clinton, 2 Bush’s and Obama support. The rest are questionable but support war with few exceptions, i.e. Paul & Johnson.

  • http://bennysopinions.blogspot.com Benyomin

    Ron Paul is extremely dangerous. His foreign policy is more than pathetically naiive. He seems unable to discriminate between the virtues of the form of non-violent transfers of power which take place because of the Israeli world view and constitution vs. the the Islamic nations that surround it which demand violence in order to promote change.

    Fiscally, I couldn’t agree with him more. But we cannot afford to be the isolationists that he would want us to be.

    Personally, he needs to take a thorough crash course in the nature of Islam.

    • Cameron

      You agree fiscally with Paul. Have you heard America is bankrupt? So how do you police the world with no money? The danger is when the dollar becomes worthless. You will worry more about your neighbors killing you to steal food than Iran getting a nuke. Its that simple!!

    • GRusling

      You really need to take a CRASH COURSE in “Non-Intervention v Isolationism,” then maybe you’ll be able to discuss Ron Paul’s foreign policy in an intelligent manner. Until you figure out the difference, you have no hope of ever understanding…

      • http://benniesopinions.blogspot.com Benyomin

        Well said. I was probably wrong in referring to his foreign policy as isolationism.

        And you’re right… we have no money.

        But there is such a thing as right and wrong. Our leadership has been misguided in this for a long time.

        This world is a mess! On the one hand some hot spots need intervention. On the other hand there’s no discernment as to what and when it’s appropriate.

        I hate to say it but people DO need to be free. Yet, historically, a lot of our interventions have not really helped.

        Vietnam was a first rate fiasco.

        Iraq, I think history will show, was a fiasco because although the people needed freedom they aren’t amenable to it. Furthermore, my take on it is that we’ve just handed it over to Iran.

        Korea, as horrific as that war is (it’s still ongoing) it has freed the South such that the contrast in lifestyles of the people is obvious.

        re: N. Korea, however, People, don’t know what they’re missing if they’ve never seen what they’re missing. So they’re eternally loyal to the government.

        I do like what Paul said… “If we’re forced into a conflict, let Congress vote on it. Let’s win it and then let’s get out”.

        Personally, we haven’t intervened where I think we should have… Rwanda, Darfur.

        I would think that we certainly ought to encourage freedom of thought world wide… little by little, inch by inch.

        I see nothing of this in Dr. Paul’s vision.

        Thus far, all of the candidates are talking about “getting out of the quagmire” not about a “positive vision for the future”.

        • Karolyn

          Rwanda and Darfur, along wih any other African nations that are starving would not be profitable. That’s why the US doesn’t interfere.

    • Will Larimer

      While I’d agree with some of what you say about isolationism. What you and people in your camp forget is that the United States is broke and the credit card the red chinese have been funding after the Japanese didn’t have enough money, is about to be cut up. Can You remember the Soviet navy rusting out in port? That is what is coming to us. We are broke, and let me say it again, We are BROKE! Thanks to thirty years of borrow and spend. Morris is a parasite on the political scene which is also BROKE. Maybe, or maybe it’s too late, if we can rid our federal budget of the military industrial complex, the fed, the nea,deq,epa,cia and medicare and medicaid, slash social security and pull back our horns financially, this country can be saved. If we don’t eventually make some (preferably all) of these hard choices. We are doomed to lose this republic. I really don’t see Ron Paul as being a fruitcake or anything like it. He’s a good bit to the right of R Reagan.

      • http://benniesopinions.blogspot.com Benyomin

        Will, et al, I remember well, the Soviet navy ships rusting in port. I also know that the tactic of bankrupting a nation into defenselessness has been used in the past. You very well could be right concerning our ability (or inability) to defend ourselves. I’ve heard Paul talk, however, and his attitude towards Israel remains, nevertheless, naiive.

        I still have a hope (‘though not much of one) that we could more selectively get ourselves out of this situation. i.e. Why are we giving foreign aid to the Chinese… our lender? Why are we subsidizing the UN? Why are we giving foreign aid for the upkeep of mosques in Pakistan and elsewhere? Why are we regulating private businesses to death? Why are we spending bazilions of dollars on pork?

        If we were to get rid of all of this crap, and increase our tax base, we may be able to get this ship of state turned around. But in the meantime, it seems to me that Dr. Paul has a world out there that he’s really not willing to believe exists.

        • JeffH

          Benyomin, if you have listened and read up on Paul, you could see that he is most probably the only candidate that won’t allow this country to continue to spiral into full on socialism. Your take on Paul as an isolationist is downright MSM garbage, heresay, propaganda.

        • TML

          “I’ve heard Paul talk, however, and his attitude towards Israel remains, nevertheless, naiive.”

          Well, the leading officials from Israel had just recently stated that they do not need American troops to take care of them. They can take care of themselves. So, how is his attitude naïve? It is naïve to think Israel can’t defend themselves without our help.

          • http://benniesopinions.blogspot.com Benyomin

            Paul was quoted as saying that 9/11 happened because of U.S. interventionism.

            The U.S. intervened back in 1948 when it pushed for and then voted for Israeli statehood.

            I’m sorry, but Dr. Paul is wrong on this issue. Islam fundamentally intends to dominate the world.

            We have two problems… fiscal and spiritual.

            Dr. Paul’s eye is on the fiscal threat but his eye is not on the spiritual threat.

            I’ll agree with Dr. Paul that the federal govt. should interfere as little as possible with personal lives, but it ought not to be promoting (as is the case with our classrooms for example)aberrant behaviors or belief systems either. And a VERY big part of our fiscal problem is GREED, from both the corporate world, political world and personal world.

            What this country needs most of all is repentance and that is going to have to come from ourselves… not from Dr. Paul.

          • http://benniesopinions.blogspot.com Benyomin

            I wanted to add this to my last post as well. Part of the “spiritual” deficiency in this country manifests itself in not only the greed to which I alluded in the other post, but also a lack of understanding or appreciation for this threat which is called Islam.

      Let me see…Do you believe the BIBLE? Well if you do, here is a good one for you…Jesus just tells everyone: (Luke 6:27-36)[27] “But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, [28] bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. [29] If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to him the other also. If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic. [30] Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. [31] Do to others as you would have them do to you. [32] “If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even ‘sinners’ love those who love them. [33] And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even ‘sinners’ do that. [34] And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even ‘sinners’ lend to ‘sinners,’ expecting to be repaid in full. [35] But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. [36] Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. And then a few sentences later says “But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.” -Luke 19:27…Hmmmm…sounds like either a major contradiction or possibly Christianity is a VERY VIOLENT religion that wants to kill Muslims. I think that it is a violent religion. Just look at what has been done in the name of it since it was “revealed”. ME? I’ll take Thomas Paine’s religion any day over ALL the worlds revealed religions…THE WORLD is my COUNTRY, MANKIND are my brothers and TO DO GOOD is my religion. Trash the rest.

        Mark,
        You set a trap and I simply couldn’t resist. Your quote from Luke 19 is far far more than a “few” sentences later than the quote that you gave from Luke 6. (In fact it’s over half of the book away). The context of each of the quotes is far different.

        The first quote is from a sermon which Jesus is giving where He describes the conduct which He desires from those who are “citizens” as it were, of the kingdom of God.

        The second, more violent quote to which you refer, is from a parable which He is telling to His disciples. It marks the conclusion or explanation of that parable. The parable draws a comparison between an issue of everyday life (employment) and citizenship in the kingdom of God. Jesus is saying that everyone has gifts, talents, faith, in essence, resources, that can be used for the sake of furthering the kingdom of God. In God’s economy one’s rewards after life (so to speak) are a function of how and to what extent those resources are used. In that context, the last verse that you quoted distinguishes the unfaithful servant who produced nothing from the Master from the one who chose never to submit to the Master in the first place. The latter meets destruction. In light of the fact that this is a parable, absolutely no onus is placed on the so called “believer” to see to the destruction of the infidel or heretic or whatever. It merely alludes to the eternal destruction that comes from the one who chooses to reject Jesus.

        I don’t know too much about Thomas Payne’s philosophy, but I do know that a number of the signers of the Declaration of Independence founded the American Bible Society. Furthermore, they published the primary English text books in the new country… the McGuffy Reader which was replete with quotes from the Bible.

        Furthermore, if you were to look down upon the top of the Washington Monument you would see the inscription (intended initially only to have been seen by God) which, in Latin, reads “To the Glory of God”.

        Also, our Constitution was built upon a fundamental “Christian” principal… that all men can be, by some means, corrupted. Hence, it set in place checks and balances to help prevent that.

        One of the founding fathers was also quoted as saying (I paraphrase) “The constitution will only maintain an orderly society as long as its citizens are personally constrained by morality and “religion”>

        My way of thinking, I believe would be more like that of Benjamin Franklin who came to later acknowledged that the birth of this nation (which has, at least temporarily, turned out to be arguably the freest nation in the history of the world) was a miracle of God.

      “But we cannot afford to be the isolationists that he would want us to be.”

      Non-Interventionalist, not isolationist… if you bothered to actually research his views, rather than regurgitating the crap you hear from others, you would understand the difference.

      “Personally, he needs to take a thorough crash course in the nature of Islam.”

      I’m sure you know all about the nature of Islam, right?

      • http://benniesopinions.blogspot.com Benyomin

        I’m not an economist. I’m skeptical about Paul ‘though I respect his stick-to-it-iv-ness and his passion.

        But I think that I know quite enough about Islam as a world view. And allow me to make the distinction, if you will, between Muslims and Islam. The former is people. They have a lot in common with the rest of us.

        the latter is an ideology.

        lest I state the obvious.

  • Kerry Good

    Look at it this way, if you did as I have which was join the US Army to go to Vietnam for combat to kill commies, then first hand you learned how screwed up and killable commies are. Liberals, progressives are commies, they need to be killed or at the very least stripped of everything they possess including citizenship and shoved across the border(illegally of course)into Mexico where they can explain themeselves to that government. Ron Paul is so right about every war since WWII has been illegal, we should not have been there! Congress must approve war for us to go to fight and get it done, then come home-without rebuilding nor caring about the broke country we destroyed-end of story!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Mary

      Kerry you are right we know the truth because we lived it. Most of the people here don’t know nothing. We have to mind our own business but to be ready for war that mesn strong army forces to really defense the country when is REALLY needed . We have to many enemies because our prostituted foreign policies. I’m not surprise about the ignorant showed in the responses here my own son didn’t believe me and went to the Marines. He is not going to make a militar career. I feel sorry for him because he loved this country and belived all the war were for a reason and this country was the best in the whole world . Now he nows the reason is MONEY for power hungry greedy bastards. He’s going to vote RON PAUL.

    • http://radiodynamo.com/ Haggard

      I agree you mostly on this Kerry. However, nor are to be the aggressor. We are never to draw first blood.

      Everything since WWII has been an UN peace keeping operation and no business being there or in the UN.

      Both World Wars were initiated to the end of forming the UN in the first place.

      No where can it be found in the Constitution be out doing what we have been doing now for 70 years or more.

      • Clarence

        The question is not can Ron Paul Win? But will they let him win? The central banker’s financial train with the Federal Reserve Bank as its engine is what is financing the establishment of the New World Order or ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT. If you yank out the Federal Reserve Bank most of the central banks throughout rest of the world would fall like dominoes. It has taken almost 300 years of instigating wars, financial turmoil and destroying national sovereignty, and deliberately killing and assassinating millions, to get the central bankers to the threshold of victory. There is no way they will let Ron Paul win but if they take him out lets at least go out with our boots on.

        • Airdale150

          Clarence, I believe you are right. And I also think Ron Paul is our best choice but why does he not talk about the Council on Foreign Relations and the Bilderberg Group who are supporting many canidates. He needs to talk about the New World Order and One World Gov.

          • DaveH

            Because, Airdale, he is smart enough NOT to open that can of worms. You can see by comments on this board that many (if not most) of the citizens of this country have been heavily Propagandized to believe such Ignorant concepts such as War is Peace, or that people have a right to ride on the shoulders of unwilling others. Imagine trying to convince people of a worldwide conspiracy by the PTBs?
            Ron Paul doesn’t need to talk about NWO or the CFR, because his ideas stand alone in Principle, whether there are Conspiracies or not. It’s just a plain fact of life that people look out for themselves first, and Leaders are just people. They are naturally inclined to feather their own nests at the expense of the rest of us. There are very few Principled Politicians like Ron Paul. It’s up to the rest of us to acquire those same Principles and boot those Politicians out of office who don’t share them, whether they are engaged in Conspiracies or just acting alone.

    • Karolyn

      How can you defend a position of removing those who disagree with you from this country? Sounds like fascism to me! Isn’t that what I hear people railing against so much? – And yet people like you propose it.

      • mickey

        Karolyn, I don’t know what you were trying to say, but take a look at DSA (Democratic Socialist of America). Even that list is not accurate because people like Pelosi, Reid, etc are not listed. These people are in our government!

        Differing views? I don’t think you have looked at NDAA. obama is now in charge of who can be killed on our home soil.

        • Karolyn

          Bottom line is there are always two sides to a story; and since this is a free country, everybody has the right to believe what they want and live their lives in the manner they wish without fearing deportation because their views and beliefs are not in line with someone else’s – no matter what those views and beliefs are.

          • kkflash

            You’re nearly right… This WAS a free country once, but our freedom has been insidiously, and gradually usurped by an overblown, power-hungry political elite who think they know what’s best for everyone. Truly, we the people need to take our country back from the government and Ron Paul is the guy to do it.

          • Mark Are

        A little bit of Fascism is a good thing It fixed the economy of Germany in the 30′s

        • Sol of Texas

          Jimmy … just like there can never be utopia on earth, there can never be just “a little fascism”.

          The term Fascism is derived from Mussolini’s symbolic use of Fasciti which was an ancient Latin weapon. Fasces were axes – a metal blade whose handle was formed by bundling and tying sticks together. Fasces were carried by Roman Lichtors who acted like “sergeant of the guard” in the Forum during public debate, trials, and such so as to maintain order and protect public officials. Mussolini used this image for two reasons: he conjured nationalism by reminding Italians of the greatness of ancient Rome (in order to evoke emotional response especially from Italian collectivists), and he intended the state to become THE center of the universe — by their motto — everything within the state and nothing without.

          A little fascism never stops becoming “big fascism” because the entire philosophy is based on blind ambition and Nietsche’s concept of the “will to power”.

          If you reflect on this I think you will realize fascism is never a good idea, not even in the short term. Your liberties can be seized under such a system just as easily as your neighbors. You will wake up one day to find yourself a vassal of the state with little or no personal freedom.

      Kerry:
      Your experience in Vietnam was similar to my experience in Korea ’51-’53.
      When you state that Commies are “killable,” that is exactly the attitude of the Red leaders who send their people into combat. Loss of life is of minor concern to them,they’d give 10 for 1 of ours, because life is cheap to them.
      It’s the growth of the Communist theology that is most important to them.The more people they can enslave, the more their success! These Reds are damned serious about it. They are committed!They never rest, even while we relax!
      The people in the ranks are not necessarily Communists, they’re more like prisoners being driven from the rear by Communist “political officers” who will shoot anyone who won’t go forward.
      These people ran right into our artillery fire and kept coming like they were under a spell.

  • Larry B

    I agree with everything Frank J says. Ron Paul should do the country a favor and quit running for president. He will nver be nominated, much less win.

    • Bob in Boston

      Actually Romney and Gingrich should do the country a favor and stop running. Ron Paul matches up best against Obama, 7 points ahead of Romney and 10 points ahead of Gingrich, so if one of the neocons gets the nomination we are going to get 4 more years of Obama. If you want Obama out of office, then you want to be supporting Ron Paul.

    • kkflash

      Gingrich, Romney, Obama. It’s all the same business-as-usual in Washington DC. They’ll continue to sell the freedom of citizens to the highest bidder, both in the US and abroad. Only Ron Paul can return us to the freedom-loving, economically dominant nation we once were.

      The best way to educate the electorate on ideas is to run for office and use the political platform as your bully pulpit. The nice thing about running an educational campaign like Ron Paul is doing is that you are bringing an understanding to the electorate. If enough people come to an understanding the candidate may get elected but even if he doesn’t the movement he started will begin to manifest itself on the political scale as people begin to concur with the ideas. We may lose the battle but will win the war.

      Ron Paul loves everybody except Americans who believe in fightin for our liberties. Freedom is NOT cheap, but Ron Paul believes it is a given if we are just nice guys even to those that attacked us, over and over, even before 9/11. He thinks we, Americans and our foreign policies are to be blamed, not their zeal to take over the world and transform it into a caliphate. With Ron Paul we are guaranteed a Marxist Islamo-fascism. Ron Paul is the quintessential Hitler-like dictator. He fools all the peaceniks who’d rather be slaves to Islamists than free Americans. No wonder he never went back to practicing medicine: he can’t stand the sight of blood, even that of his enemies. How could he ever win against Obama and his bloody machine? You Paulbots need to grow a pair!

        He certainly seems to believe that our foreign policies played a role in helping to cause events such as 9/11.

        The Fabulous Furry Freakshow known as progressivism is rearing its misinformed head.Fear and Loathing in the Fox Newsroom.Brought on by the hallucinatory idea that fixing our financial woes mean that their slice of pie will be taken from them and eaten by those who actually deserve a slice of pie.The welfare state is in disrepair.Some guy named Newt claims to have dealt with the problem when he had a republican congress.The conditions have not changed for the better.
        As an act of charity,I once gave a lady friend with a drinking issue a ride to the Department of Human assistence,Never was a sadder sight than watching those folks stand in line for hours for a scrap of welfare.Knowing full well from the look of the faces in line that they are desperate,I watched as women walked by in the fashion of prostitutes,hoping I would ask them for a turn.
        Meanwhile where there were no children present,drugs were exchanged as people drove by in fancy automobiles.Am I saying that everyone who needs assistence is pushing drugs?Not hardly.I truly feel for those struggling to eat their next meal.But it is not the condition I like to see my nation in.I would rather someone attempt to fix it.
        But those who argue against Ron Paul havent got a leg to stand upon.
        Only by challenging the way politics are done can one hope and change the system.Is it any wonder that his detractors hate him?
        These folks spitting out poison-the-well innuendo,have a lot to learn,and even more to lose.That is why they are here taking shots at those of us who have the innate capability of seeing through the smokescreen,in a desperate attempt to dissuade us from doing the right thing.It is their job,which is sad.How can you work for a hidden agenda and not realize that the hiding of it reveals its very nature?Just ask a progressive.Most of them seem gleefully unaware of the black science being used on them.
        They see the structure of the machine and decide to worship it.
        It was made for their adoration.They give it willingly having no other source to turn to.The world will be a better place,they think.
        The enlisting in the”Worlder Navy”(I call it that because it floats over the seas of people,looking like a lifepreserver)seems like the only safe thing to do.
        Flirting with disaster every day.
        The gray area of not caring if the machine seems to be functioning correctly.Enjoying the idea of prostituting their childrens children for a better life right now.
        Roll out the fold full of credit cards and spend!
        Throw your monopoly money around like a drunken sailor.
        That is their wisdom.That is their God.

        Aniko, your every word drips with unfeigned ignorance. It’s ok to not know what you’re talking about; it’s NOT ok to go vomiting it all over everyone else.

        Ron Paul has a 30+ year track record of following the Constitution. Every other candidate has a stellar track record of big spending, warmongering, big government, or other unconstitutional legislation or support.

        Even Ronald Reagan applauded Dr. Paul for being one of the foremost proponents of a strong national DEFENSE. You don’t DEFEND in Iraq, since Iraq never attacked us. You don’t DEFEND in Afghanistan, since the Taliban and Osama bin Laden have been taken care of (OBL is dead, the Taliban is a shell of what it was). You don’t DEFEND in Libya, Tunisia, Somalia, Iran, or anywhere else in the world. You DEFEND HERE, in the UNITED STATES.

        You need to ditch your Neoconservative Dictionary and learn some logical, intelligent English.

    My concerns are that it doesn’t matter which candidate we select, it is the Congress and Senate that vote these policies in or out, therefore, how do any of the candidates figure they will get what they platform for without the consent of Congress and the Senate. They can say anything they like, but in reality, they can’t get half of these things passed because of the bickering and stand offs of Congress, therefore, the people to get rid of is Congressmen and Senators that do not go along with any of the platforms that any of the candidates propose. Obama had some pretty good ideas when he was running too, less than 40% of them were put into play because why – not because he didn’t propose it, but because he could not get the vote of the House and Senate, so keep this in mind when you all are voting for a President. His ideas are only ideas, but actually getting his/her platforms implemented is the problem!! They can say anything they want, but if they do not have a Congress or Senate who will pass these things, they mean absolutely nothing!

    • Troy

      You are completly right and I have been telling my friend that for a while. That would be the only reason I would not be against Ron Paul if some something weird were to happen and he actually get nominated. If his sheepish little self didn’t get smeared in a debate with obama. One thing people have to understand is that debate does not happen in elections only directional talking points. When Obummer starts getting attacked the commentator, mostly from liberal news sources, will redirect the debate so that Obummer does not get beat up too badly. They will also maintain focus on issues that hurt his apponent. Mark my words and watch closely.

      • http://google rose

        Your right about the media directing questions to work for the guy they like. Just like they tried to manipulate the debates to try and focus on Mitt and Newt and try to make them look good. But it did not work. I’m hoping the American people will pay attention to what is being said when the debates go on. If Paul gets the republican nomination be prepared. The media will be asking questions in debates that work against Paul’s favor and that work for Obama’s favor.

Or maybe Obama can say he had a law license once so he knows more than Ron Paul — LOL! Or maybe Ron Paul can say he only wants to bring our troops home like Obama promised in 2008.

          What could they possibly say that hasn’t been said by the right? Look at Dick Morris — he’s almost foaming at the mouth and screaming obscenities he wants to get rid of Ron Paul so bad!

          Both sides are scared to death that Ron Paul may stop their march to Marxism and the take over by the NWO because the “people” will be behind him instead of the lying media. People who cling to their religion and their guns no less!

          Yes, they should be very afraid of Ron Paul. Especially if the “useful idiots” wise up and stand behind him.

      • DaveH

        Dream on, Troy. Obama is as economically ignorant as they come. Without his teleprompter, Obama would be lost. Ron Paul would walk all over him intellectually.
        There is the problem of ignorant voters, for sure. As Robert Ringer said “if Paul has one weakness, it’s that he’s intellectually above the average voter’s head, which sometimes makes it difficult to understand him”.
        That and the fact that Progressive Leaders promise the voters all kinds of Free goodies (who doesn’t want Free goodies?), but of course they never deliver for two reasons:
        1) They can’t. There just isn’t enough wealth to let most of the people have a Free Lunch.
        2) They don’t want to. It’s all lip service designed to get the Progressive Leaders re-elected so they can continue to work hand-in-hand with their Favorite Crony Capitalists as they fleece the rest of us. Baa-a-a, Baa-a-a.

        Obama speaking without his teleprompter:

        Only people, with visions of other peoples’ sugar plums dancing in their heads, can think Obama knows what he’s talking about. He can succeed only on the backs of other peoples’ ignorance.

    • JustSayin

      Hello, reality check time. Obama had two years with majorities in both houses to implement his ideas. The country saw what his priorities were and changed the composition in the House as a direct result. It doesn’t matter how great the ideas you campaign on sound, what matters is how you govern after the election.
      However, I do agree that just about none of what RP proposes will ever make it out of any committee and he will be forced to do things by executive order. Quite the irony there, eh?

      Obama had ZERO good ideas, and unfortunately for the nation he was successful at getting some of the worst ones passed through Congress i.e. Obamacare. We need Ron Paul AND some serious conservatives in Congress too, in order to undo 200 years of assault on the Constitution. Vote against the status quo. Elect Ron Paul and every fiscal conservative you can find. (They are hard to find, as most just pay lip service to the idea, while continuing to pander to the special interests.)

    • Sol of Texas

      Evie –

      Very true. Even though the entire house is up for election, only 1/3 of the Senate can be changed – tops. I hope my fellow citizens will carefully examine the person’s in whose hands they place their lives, liberties, and sacred honor.

      • DaveH

        We need to get together as a people and abolish the 17th Amendment which overrode the Founders’ design of the Constitution. Before the 17th Amendment, Congress was composed of the House of Representatives who were elected by the people and represented the people, and the Senate who were elected by the State Legislators and represented the States. The state legislators were much closer to political issues and thus are better suited at picking the best Senators to represent the States. And they could recall them at any time if they turned on the States in favor of the Federal Government.

        • TreeofLiberty

          I agree with this concept 100%. If one studies the Federalist Papers and the founding documents of this country, all members of the Senate were meant to be appointed by each state legislature. Each state legislature was to be elected by the people in the respective states. The state legislature could recall a senator to protect the states’ interest(s). This was an important check and balance that was removed, and evidence exists the amendment was not ratified in a lawful manner (read http://thelawthatneverwas.com). I have always been a conservative but now I am also a constitutionalist, which means that — like it or not — things need to be done according to the manner in which our Founders intended. A similar problem also exists with lack of due regard to the Tenth Amendment, which reserves powers to the states unless specifically stated as a federal power in the Constitution. I am also pro-life but I understand that this issue is to be reserved to the states, unless an amendment to the Constitution is lawfully ratified. I pray one day a pro-life federal amendment succeeds with sufficient states’ approval.
          May all who read this post be enlightened. Here is another website worth reviewing carefully: http://www.usa-the-republic ; this website has information also about the 17th amendment.

      Evie;
      1. As commander in chief of the military he can order the military out of illegal occupations around the world. If congress wants them there let them vote to go to war and take responsibility for the bloodshed. Some individuals are proud to create suffering(7 of the last 8 presidents,)but the majority of our representatives aren’t like that if they have to face re-election and their constituents.
      2. He can veto unconstitutional legislation as he has done for 30 years, but now his voice could have the force of law.
      3.He will have the power to appoint federal judges and supreme court justices who will safeguard our constitution and bill of rights.
      4.He will have the power to rescind unconstitutional actions such as many of the 13,000 executive orders and innumerable “signing statements.”
      5. He will have the power to restore constitutional constraints on the executive, which would make it a lot harder for future presidents to countermand these restraints without repurcussion.
      I am sure that there is a lot more he can do to restore our republic. But what I have delineated here would be a good start.

  • Scott Todd

    Blaming America’s foreign policy for 9/11? That’s not conservative, that’s more like Jeremiah Wright. And what about RP’s support for same sex marriage? How does he propose to defend the religious liberties of those who don’t agree with it? Our rights are given to us by Our Creator. Therefore shouldn’t those rights be 1) in harmony with how our Founders understood the Creator, and 2) in harmony with what said Creator allows and disallows? For those who would lecture me on how we’re governed by the Constitution and not the Declaration, let me remind you the former wouldn’t be worth the paper it’s written on without the latter since it would merely be another list of man made laws. The Constitution lists the “what”, the Declaration designates the “Who” which stands behind it.

    • Karolyn

      If you would give things a little more thought, you might realize that 9/11 (if it wasn’t an inside job) was precipitated by the US sticking its nose in other people’s business. How would you like it if China sent troops here and tried to force its ways on us? Who gives a rat’s butt who gets married? How does that affect you? Not that he necessarily supports it. HE IS FOR PERSONAL FREEDOM! Why can’t people like you get that through your heads. We have a “God-given” right to do what we want to with our own lives and bodies as long as it doesn’t infringe on the rights of anybody else. If 2 gay people marry, how does that affect you? If the guy next door uses drugs and leaves you alone, how does that affect you? When the DEA spends megabucks on the “War on drugs,” THAT affects you. If someone believes differently than you, how does that affect you?

      Creator means different things to different people. This is NOT a Christian nation; it is a nation of human beings with a lot of differing views.

      • Scott Todd

        Nobody said it affects me, which is a straw-man argument anyway, though it might be used to impede me or anyone attempting to preach that homosexuality is a sin. If same sex marriage is allowed religious conscious objection on the subject goes out the window.

        As to your contention that we’re not a Christian nation, it’s true the Founders didn’t establish any one denomination as an official church and left people free to pursue other religions, but a number of Supreme Court decisions in the 1800s says we are one. Even as late as 1950 Harry Truman urged prayer and religious (ostensibly Christian) revival. It’s obvious you don’t know your history as well as you think you do, plus you validate Star Parker’s contention that many RP supporters are just the flip side of the narcissistic OWS crowd- they don’t want to be held to much of any standards.

    • Troy

      I forgot about his gay stance. I was posting from bottom to pot of this article. I cannot support someone who stands for gay rights. I do not believe their should be a right for behavior; there is not any proven gay gene by the way. As a matter of fact, about the gay gene, that has been thrown out as a factor. They should have all the rights of any other human being, and they do, but they should not have any special rights. They have to right to marry. They just need to pick a spouse that is of opposite sex. That is true marriage according to history from the first marriage that ever was. You are right on Scott.

            If drugs were legalized, manufacture and sales could be controlled. Do you seriously believe that prohibition of illegal drugs is working? Did you know that alcoholics outnumber addicts by around 5 to 1? Why isn’t alcohol illegal? It is even more devastating than drug addiction.

        I dont care if you sleep with sheep, that dosent mean that I support it, it just means that in a free country it is your choice.

        • Troy

          Until sleeping with sheep causes and epidemic, like small pox as an example, and you loved ones contract it. There is good purpose in the rule of law, which by the way is what a true republic is about. We do not want a police state but we do want to protect and have order. One only has to view a gay parade to see that the rights of others to not have to walk down the street and have their children exposed to it is a reason for order. What about my right to be involved in what my children are learning at school. They are teaching that gay is good and normal to grade schoolers by the way. Don’t I have a right as a citizen to have morality around me. Do I determine morality? No, but I think that clearly a majority of Americans think that the gay lifestyle is immoral. When do behaviors have precedence to be considered a right over the rights of others? Rights are only God given because they are unseperable, like race and birth gender; not what people think in thier minds. There are also limitations to what should be considered a right just as there are limitations to the abuse you would accept from another person. Think about these things a little.

          • http://google rose

            So as it stands right now you cannot tell a school that they cannot teach your child about the gay lifestyle. The department of education is government run and is indoctrinating our children with the gay agenda. You think the gay lifestyle is immoral, yet you think, that a man who is for less government control is wrong? Smaller government means more control, for you, over your own life. He believes that states can rule over with there should be same sex marriage and that the Federal government should butt out. So if states vote against it the law stands. But as long as the Federal government keeps growing and dictating to the states what they should do, I guaranteed you that it will be mandated to the states, that same sex marriage be allowed nation wide. Paul is our last chance to follow the constitution and be free. If Paul doesn’t get elected I am preparing for the worst.

          • http://google rose

            I meant less government not less government control.

          • kkflash

            These are thoughtful comments that deserve a thoughtful reply. I think the key to answering your questions lies in defining when our rightful actions cause harm to others, or diminish their rights in the process of exercising your own. To be sure, conflict will arise when radically opposed social ideas cross paths in the real world. It is unfortunately, government’s job to sort that out. However, I don’t think offending your sensibilities counts as “harm” your rights. We have no right to impose a particular set of moral beliefs on the populace merely by majority vote and the threat of force. Only those moral beliefs that are so widely held as to become immutable may take the form of law. Wherever there is reasonable doubt about whether a person’s actions cause harm to another’s rights, I think we must err on the side of individual freedom, or our freedom will eventually be lost, and that is not something I’m prepared to give up.

          • kkflash

            P.S. With regard to the education of your children, you have not only the right, but the responsibility to have them taught as you see fit. In that regard, I think the public school system (and the post-secondary schools as well)are failing many of us, who see it as a tool for indoctrination of the young into the culture of the centralized political mechanism. You can remove your children from the schools if they offend your ideals. You can also talk with them about what they learn, and contradict the educators if you feel its appropriate. Educating your children is still your responsibility above anyone else’s, so blaming the schools for not teaching the moral values you personally hold dear doesn’t cut it.

        • http://google rose

          kkflash don’t know if you have or ever had any child in school and have had to deal with them or not. I lived in Louisiana a few years back and my child was in fifth grade. I went to the school to let them know I was going to homeschool my child because I did not think they were up to par to educate my child. The school pricipal sat with her eyes the whole time I spoke to her and then got on her speaker phone and called a Louis Farahkan looking guy with suit, bow tie and all into her office. They both proceded to tell me I would be thrown in jail if she did not show up for the first day of school. And then the Farahkan looking dude told me to sign a piece of paper. I told him I wasn’t signing anything. He told me I had to. But I told him I was leaving and he blocked the doorway. They told me they were calling the cops. I told them to go ahead because I was being held against my will. He let me leave. Needless to say I moved days later to another state. I never raised my voice or got out of line and they tried to intimidate. Not as easy as you think to just pull your child out of the public school system as you think. Especially if you have a child that makes their school look good with their test grades. Some states you don’t have the freedom to raise your child and educate them as you see fit.

          • kkflash

            Rose, I’m sorry about your bad experience, but I never said it would be easy to take responsibility for your children’s education. I just said you have the constitutional right to do so. As a father of two boys, I often took a hand in their school work, partly to find out what they were being taught, but mostly to assure that they weren’t blindly accepting all they were being fed, but learning to question and think for themselves. We chose a private elementary school to try and lay a foundation we believed in. We didn’t send our boys to the recommended religious education at that school, but passed on our Christian principles directly through Bible study and family discussion. They attended a public high school, and they chose, each deciding for themselves, the same private Christian university. My point in all this is that education is the responsibility of parents, not of the state. Like healthcare, the Constitution does not guaranty anyone the right to an education, and though we, as a society, have chosen to provide a basic public education for all citizens, that choice does not relieve parents of the primary responsibility for teaching their children.

      • eddie47d

        Ron Paul supports DOMA wherever it is enacted but he also would allow in his words,”Protect all voluntary associations:don’t define marriage”. As a President he would accept the laws of the individual states but would not approve of any Constitutional Amendment banning same sex marriage.

      • DaveH

        Troy,
        You need to learn the difference between advocating for gay rights, and observing that the Federal Government has no Power to dictate what the States choose to do in that regard.
        Gay rights puts gays above the rest of us with special protections. Butting the Federal Government out of the issue is what Ron Paul wants.

      • Kate8

        If I understood Ron Paul’s position on gay “marriage” (contradiction in terms), as well as drugs, it is that he recognizes these issues as falling under the authority of the individual state, not the federal government. Constitutionally, he has no business taking a stand on them in a presidential campaign.

        The feds, under the Constitution, have very little authority except in a very few matters of things like national defense. All matters of governance concerning the people was left to the sovereign states.

        • DaveH

          I really can’t understand why anybody would want to become legally entangled unless they plan on raising kids. Even then the courts make a mess of peoples’ lives because they’re really all about padding their wallets, so the rulings they pass tend to keep the divorced couples coming back again and again.
          There are two things they could do to stop a lot of the turmoil. The most important would be to give alternating custody one year at a time to each parent with no money changing hands. That would mostly end the situation where the custodial parent uses the kids as a weapon, which is most of the time. And it would stop the games where people lie about their salaries, etc. The other would be to rigidly enforce the visitation contract including putting the custodial parent in jail for the weekend or more when they purposely interfere with the other parent’s visitation.
          But the lawyers will fight against anything that cuts down on their case load.

    • kkflash

      I’m married 32 years to the same woman, and am admittedly slightly homophobic, but that doesn’t mean I’m ready to deny any individual the right to their lifestyle choices. Marriage should not be politically regulated, as it is a personal choice that should be neither punished nor rewarded by the political/financial systems. Note that neither the Constitution nor the Declaration of Independence says anything whatsoever about marriage. The government should not be involved in regulating what is a religious and social issue, not a political one. Once again, Ron Paul is right.

      • DaveH

        Wise words, KK.

        • Kate8

          KK – Exactly. It was never meant for government to have any authority over marriage at any level. Your are correct in saying that it has always been a religious institution.

          The government only inserted itself into the marriage contract for purposes of control, taxation and to lay claim on the children.

    • LBJ

      Ron Paul is too liberal on homosexuals in the military and on drugs. Open homosexuality is pathological.There are no ‘gays’. It is a total misnomer. Misery, misery and slavery is a better description of the homosexual life.
      Paul is not being charitable, nor anyone else who advocates making it easier and more accepted to become addicted to that miserable lifestyle which as a matter of course involves illegal drug use.

      Marriage is about children and their well-being, not about how the adults involved feel.I know too many whose lives have been devastated by drug. Alcohol is in moderation not so bad.
      These other things are totally harmful. I know from seeing it in my family.

I would not consider any of our choices for Republican candidate true conservative; I do not true believe their is one who will run any time soon. As a matter of fact the only true conservatives I see in congress are, by what I am aware of of them, Jim Demint, Marco Rubio, Mike Lee, Allen West(?), and a couple others whose names slip my mind.

        Allen West recently made the comment that “Democrats are all Joseph Goebbels of Nazi Germany and they want another Holocaust”. Anyone who would say that would make a fine propaganda minister for the deranged but not for respect or credibility.

        • JeffH

          Propaganda eddie, propaganda. Wasn’t Goebbles Hitler’s Propaganda Minister? West never said the Dems were Nazi’s but that their successful propaganda machine would make even Goebbles proud.

          How many times was Bush compared to Hitler and the liberal media didn’t make a big deal out of it?

          This is actually what Allen West said…word for word which is very different than your version.

          “If Joseph Goebbels was around, he’d be very proud of the Democrat Party because they have an incredible propaganda machine,” West told reporters in the Capitol. “I think that you have, and let’s be honest, you know, some of the people in the media are complicit in this, in enabling them to get that type of message out.”

          West was responding to a question about Congress’s low poll numbers and the fact that public blame is centered more on the Republicans. A Pew Research Center poll released Thursday found two in three voters in favor of tossing out most members of Congress in 2012, with a larger share of the blame aimed at the GOP.

          The freshman Republican, whose district is in heavily Jewish South Florida, said his reference to Goebbels wasn’t designed to link Democrats to the overall Nazi party.

          “I’m talking about propaganda, OK,” he said. “Don’t start taking my words and twisting it around. I’m talking about propaganda. And I think that’s a very important thing. When you tell me that everyone thinks that the only people on Capitol Hill are House Republicans, it’s because that’s what’s being portrayed, is that there’s nobody else up here.”

          “Once again, you guys will take whatever I say and you will spin it to try to demonize me or demagogue me,” West added. “What I’m talking about is a person that was the minister of propaganda. And I’m talking about propaganda. So please. I’ll be prepared to wake up tomorrow and you guys make up some crazy story. Whatever.”

    I support Ron Paul more today than I did a few months ago but I still do not think that I will be voting for him. I think that most people believe he is a nut because I have heard them say it; people in the crowds around me. I also think he has no chance of winning. The only place he is even running in double digit polls is Iowa and the rest he is way far behind. I will say this, if he has won the majority of states when it comes time for me to vote, I will vote for him. I am in Tennessee so by then if he has the majority he should win. Another thing is that I do not agree with his stance on abortion. Although it is said that he is against abortion, he believes that states have the power to choose whether they stand on choice or life. I would say that he is totally wrong. The constitution says the we all have a right to life, liberty, and the persuit of happyness not all but those who have not left the womb. I believe that the constitution trumps all and no one individual should have the right to chose to take a life. I do find one exception to that statement and that is if a human being walking the earth is a danger or threat to the life of another and there is not any alternative; protecting ones one life from active threat. Second amendment all they way baby. Lastly, I do not like his foreign policy. I totally agree with him that we should not police the world but I think it is a big mistake to let Iran get a nuclear bomb. His statement that he did not see that as a threat just blows me away. I understand how pocker is played but the idea of destroying Isreal, and us for that matter, is a religious belief of many in that region and they have bluntly stated their intension of wiping us and them off the map if they had the power to do so. They believe it will bring them their savior. That is not just media talk, that is real. I do not fear Iran because I am aware, as a veteran, that they would not stand a chance against us. What I do think is a strong possibility is that their friends, Hezbolla who live and operate at our southern border, could be used by Iran to transport a small nuclear explosive device into our country and cause some real damage. I believe that that is more of a threat than anything else. Our government and Mr. Paul do not want to close off our borders; Mr. Paul did say he did not like the idea of building a fence. The current administration will not even let the prosecution of illegal coming from there happen. Since when is it descrimination to ask people to show Id. Since it hinders their ability to get illegal votes. All other things I agree with Ron Paul but I do not see myself voting for him. Have a blessed day.

    • Margo Greenwell

      I am from Tennessee also but I agree with all of Ron Pauls iseas- I think if people don’t lsten to him- we will go into more wars while our own people are struggling and starving- Look the War monger motto is getting old- we need to take care of The United States before our economy collapses like Russias did- then people will say why wasn’t I listening to a man that could have prevented our demise- Please think about this before you dismiss voting for the most honest, intelligent, shure footed never chaging man who tells it like it is and how he will fix it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Troy

        I agree. I agree with most of his foreign policy but not what I have wrote about. I am a veteran and understand the pawnmanship of being a soldier. I believe that we should lead by strength as Ronnald Reagan did. We did very little fighting during Reagan. But that is not what Ron Paul has promoted. He has even critisized Reagans foreign policies. I do not think everything that happened when Reagan was president was great, like the covert war from a small group in congress, but like it was stated above the presidents only constitutional power is Veto. That will do a lot of good in stopping further destruction but only the house and congress can change this. We need a president that will and has accomplished much by way of leadership. Only one former congressman, who I hold my nose too, has any record of great accomplishment and that is Newt Gingrich. Ron Paul has written and push many bills but has very very few victories. Newt is the only person who has gotten thing done in congress under a democratic majority and my entire history of 41 years. What we need is one who can control congress and the house, and a congress and house that will control the president; this is called balance of powers. We also need a congress, the branch of government who has power over legislation, to control the courts and run back the unconstitutional bills that have hurt us for so long, as well as the new ones that will cause damage. We have to, in this time period, get over the idea of the voting for the perfact conservative because currently there isn’t one. We need to get rid of Obummer. The idiots above, to include the author, are wacko to say they would rather have what we got then some non perfect conservative. Why don’t you just advocate people jumping off cliffs.

        • Vince

          Newt Gingrich “got things done” because he was willing to compromise on his principles.

          Ron Paul “hasn’t accomplished anything” because he refuses to compromise on his principles.

          Take your pick. I’d rather a president that vetoes every bill that hits his desk than an undercover socialist like Gingrich.

Hope that we never fall to civil unrest for fear of a premature demise.

        • Sirian

          Newt has plenty, if not a ton of fallacies but there is no such thing as a “perfect candidate”. But Newt is more of a Progressive than it may appear. Just as a shiny used car may look really nice and strike you as the best one on the lot but once you get it it blesses you with more trouble than you thought were possible. Just as we all have been rewarded by Obummer. As to the extent of research that you may have done on Newts’ background and Congressional side actions, side associations with various nefarious organizations, I really don’t know. But it would be to your benefit to do so. The same applies to all candidates. I fully agree with you in reference to a balance of powers between Congress and the President. Yet there seems to be a trend in most of the comment posts, not all, but the majority that they are neither seeing nor possibly even thinking of. It really doesn’t matter who we have sitting in the Oval Office, in reality the main controller of our government resides in the House & Senate. And that is where the problem lies alone. As long as Congress is corrupted, as it most certainly is, very little will be accomplished in any effort to return us to the Constitution. As to exactly how far R.P., or any other candidates as far as that is, may be able to carry this is unknown also. So, with this, how many Reps or Senators from your state will be on the ballot in November? And to what extent do you know what their stance on different issues – national and state – do you know? That is one area of great concern most everyone seems to be ignoring. I’m a veteran too Troy, let us pray that be it Newt, R.P., Santorum or any of the rest, that we can decisively get Obummer out of office and hopefully a lot of new faces in both the House & Senate.

          • Troy

            I do not know you but since when is one life more valuable than another. What you are saying is that we should just stand by and let people die because they are not Americans. I think Isreal can take care of itself in a fair fight but they are surrounded by nothing but people who want to destroy them only because they beleive as the bible has stated and that is that they are a chosen people. This has nothing to do with Palestine. It has to do with two sons of Abraham period. Propagandize all they want and they will never change that.

            Iran will not and cannot wipe Israel off the face of the map, because the Bible says that Christ will come and fight the war for Israel. Israel was promised the land thousands of years ago and God dosen’t break a promise. Those who fret over Israel being nuked by Iran need to read their Bibles. If they believe in what it says they would not hunger over war with Iran.

            Just a few posts ago you expressed outrage at the “bloodlust” concerning our porous borders. You were all sanctomonious about the idea of people being killed for coming here illegally.

            Now you think it’s perfectly acceptable to wipe out Irael and half the middle east? Are some humans worth more than others? It’s okay to kill as long as it’s not here?

            Well, by the laws of kharma, it will come here. A nation, just like individuals, reaps what it sows. The injustice cannot go unanswered forever.

      Troy It seems that we live in a country of cowards where fear tactics are used to control the masses. It will take courageous Americans to take back this country from the enemies from within, if you beleave as you say then have the courage to vote your conscience, or we might as well have 4 more of obamma.

      • Troy

        I do vote my conscience. I do not want to vote for someone who would lay down for special gay rights. I do not want to vote for someone who believe the states, our any person for that matter, should be the say in whether one should have a choice as to whether a baby lives or not. I do not think it is a good idea to make drugs legal, but I can agree that the war on drugs is a failure. I think we control the drug trade within our own borders and the borders. I understand the fear mongering. I think that if people would be responsible citizens, active and do their homework, we would have a control on who is actually in office. I we had active responsible citizens we might every have a republic again. I blame two groups of people for our demise: our government and our slothly citizens.

        • Vince

          So you would rather let Roe v. Wade stand, forcing all states to allow abortion, instead of having it overturned through legislation, allowing the 13+ states with laws against abortion to make their own decisions?

          You would rather a president that may or may not cave to actual “gay” special interests, instead of a president that doesn’t believe in ANY special rights for ANYONE?

          You don’t sound like you know what you’re talking about. Ron Paul would do away with income taxes, removing the need for government to get involved in the definition of marriage, thus removing the incentive for gays to be “married.”

          Study it out a little more; you’re making your decisions out of ignorance, and that’s never a good thing. Remember: the media lie.

          • Troy

            That is not what I said. I am totally against abortion but if you are strictly constitution then why should the state have the power? To me the constitution forbids it period and Row vs Wade should be overturned. I am just stating that shifting the power from one form of Government to another is no more constitutional in this matter than any other. I am for the 10th amendment and beleive that the powers of the Federal government need to be brought to proper order but abortion to me is neither a Federal or State issue.

          • Troy

            The special rights for gays is not just about the monitary incentives. Like you said, don’t believe everything the media tells you.

            Very, very well said Vince!

        • kkflash

          Troy, I’m against abortion too, but it clearly has to be relegated to a states issue. After decades of debate, there are just too many people on the other side of the issue for it to become a federal decision. Ron Paul would relegate it to the states. Then, if you don’t like the law in your state, you can move to one that agrees with your views. Our founders had this all figured out when they reserved most of our rights to individuals, or to the states. They knew people of similar beliefs would then flock together and live in harmony with those around them, if not with those farther away who have opposing views. Back to the Constitution with Ron Paul!

            Yep, the further that people are from the seats of Power, the less influence they get in how their lives are to be run. The Politicians who pushed for a Big Central Government knew that, and the Wilson administration did much to bring it to fruition (The Federal Reserve Act, the 16th Amendment, and the 17th Amendment).
            There are many, many books out there that could wake people up to the reality of Big Government, but here is one that people can download Free and learn a lot from:

      Ask those people who think Ron Paul is a nut to explain to you why they think that way, Troy. Chances are they are just the subjects of Propaganda or they have conflicting Principles.

  • Ted Gager.

    I agree. I like Paul. Morris is a one sided globalist. Period! We have to keep focused on the elections for Congress and the Senate as much, if not more than, the presidential election. Obama will bring himself down if he has gross opposition in both houses. He will have nothing to do but write incriminating executive orders that trample on the constitution, play golf and wait for his impending impeachment. Hopefully, he will out live his usefulness to the powers that be and become an eventual statistic in our countries history as in the case of JFK. Only, in JFK’s case it was a real shame that the powers that be got caught and still got away with murdering him. No one could have or should have survived that much incriminating evidence. In fact, it should have sparked our nations second revolution. Makes one wonder if anyone really cares! They are convinced that no one does. Hence the things they do….That’s what needs to change.

  • Forrest W Byers

    , while I largely agree with Ron Paul on subjects domestic like the Federal Reserve, elimination of whole departments, cutting taxes, etc. I cannot agree with his isolationism, his anti military attitude, along with his unwillingness to assert or project US power, when it is in our interest! He has an attitude of Fortress America, much like was in this country. Before the advent of the second world war. It is my assertion that that unwillingness to assert our interests wound up costing millions of people their lives during the second world war. United States of America cannot remove itself from its responsibility to safeguard its own interests, which also just happened to be coincidentally the best interests of the rest of the world. I will not call Ron Paul a Nazi, but I will say his sort of deadheaded isolationism helped facilitate Hitler’s aggression against the many peoples of Europe, which ultimately led to attacks on US shipping and the development of the axis powers, which resulted in an attack on the United States at Pearl Harbor. Mr. Paul has shown himself to be completely unqualified for the office of President of the United States, because the aforementioned idiocies and lunacy!

    • mickey

      So why bomb Iran? China has the power to destroy the rest of our economy. Russia has, along with China, the war power to actually hit us here. Iran is now surrounded by our bombed out countries, complete with Muslim Brotherhood installed. Saudi Arabia are Islamic yet we sold war machinery to them. Israel, Pakistan have enough nukes to take out Iran.

      In effect, we have isolated Iran, we the aggressors have become Hitler.

    • James

      If we attack Iran China has said it will prosecute World War III. That should make the “kill them all now” people think. Think people think!

      I’ve heard time and again that the Iranian people are pro west and mostly don’t support the Mullahs. More trade with the Iranian people, more satellite TV dishes would increase communication. Bombing them would make them more nationalistic. If anything travel restrictions to countries, and trade sanctions are isolationist. Ron Paul wants to end such isolationist practices.

      Anyway, when not even 100% of our Federal budget can pay the interest on our debt ask yourself how safe you will feel then?

      As for Nazi Germany it was the government lies and decrees that ended their republic. We should consider that when we see the same happening here, take the suspension of Bill of Rights, all done in the name of preserving democracy just as they said in Germany. How many of your candidates went along with it?

    • Sol of Texas

      Forrest –

      Talking heads and pundits declare Ron Paul to be an isolationist, but that does not make it a fact. Paul is clearly non-interventionist, that is a fact. Paul is very realistic. He knows we must interact with other nations and economies. He says he prefers diplomacy to resolve conflict, but I’ve never heard him say he would not conduct a war declared by Congress. As commander in chief of the army and the navy, he knows he is obligated by his office to do so to the best of his abilities. I only wish he stated his principles on foreign policy in a form that government school educated people can more readily understand.

      • http://google rose

        It is quite frustrating to see people, with government school education, not be able to look beyond the picture the government has painted them. To look past this picture and see for themselves the full horizon and realities of what is really going on. I do wish Paul would ellaborate, for those who do not understand his stances, why his stances would work. Some people can’t think for theirselves and look to others to do their thinking for them, such as looking to the news media. I hear it all the time, “but they said on Fox News” or ” I heard them say on CNN” or “Dick Morris said”. etc, etc…

    • kkflash

      Ron Paul is no isolationist, and has more support from military personnel than any other candidate by far. Defense of the US can be stronger than ever, if we just stop trying to be policeman for the world. Since the Civil War, all the loss of US military lives have been the result of our sticking our noses where it doesn’t belong. Ron Paul has rightly pointed out that those who have been foolish enough to attack the US, have done so because we don’t mind our own business. They have told us this themselves, so we don’t have to speculate on their reasons. Personally, I believe in capitalism, so I think we should sell our military support, not give it away. By that I mean, pull back our troops from around the world, and tell the world “If you want our protection or military aid, first convince us your cause is just, not aggressive. Secondly, you must pay for what you get from us.” As a US citizen, I’m tired of paying for everyone else’s protection from aggression.

    • DaveH

      Forrest says “I cannot agree with his isolationism, his anti military attitude, along with his unwillingness to assert or project US power, when it is in our interest”.
      Whose interest, Forrest. Mine is for the US to quit being the World’s Policemen, quit creating new enemies for US, and quit killing people who have not attacked our country in any way.
      Ron Paul gets more military contributions than any other candidate. Odd, isn’t it? So much for anti-military.
      And must you spout that same Ignorant “isolationist” Propaganda that we hear here almost daily? Ron Paul wants to trade peacefully with other countries. He doesn’t want to promote gun-barrel diplomacy. That’s Non-Interventionist, NOT Isolationist, which term by the way is just a manipulative one used by Leaders to secure the allegiance of Ignorant Followers.

    I don’t understand how following our Constitution, stop spending money we don’t have, balancing the budget and getting government out of our everyday lives is considered being a Liberal Lunatic. I had dinner with Dick Morris a year and a half ago. He is sharp, quick and very funny. However,he is part of the Republican apparatus that I find very self-serving. I am a lifelong Conservative, by the way. He is motivated by the money and power of big pacs and donors. Ron Paul is about individual freedoms and personal responsibility. Also, Israel has stated they don’t need our help to defend themselves and I believe them over Dick Morris. Can you run your business or personal finances like the Republicans or Democrats do? Of course not. Paul is a threat to the establishment and all the power it wields. Listen to Paul, not the people he threatens. You owe it to yourself and your country to get back to what our Constitution is all about and it is not big government.

    A few lines from a recent Star Parker column would be worth quoting here:

    “The materialism and moral relativism that created our left-wing culture is now infecting our youth on the right. Young Republicans may be pushing back on government, but too often their motivation is like that of their left-wing contemporaries: a sense of entitlement and a desire to claim rights, with little interest in corresponding personal responsibilities.”

    And further down:

    They have little interest in a Reagan-like “shining city on a hill” message, or talk about a threatening “evil empire” abroad.

    To the contrary, they are excited by the “leave me alone” candidate who thinks the rest of the world is not our business. Apparently, they share Paul’s indifference to the looming threat of a nuclear Iran or the almost complete absence of freedom in most Islamic nations.

    Bingo!

    • Skychief

      Liberals are Libertarians with no economic sense or accountability. What I means is they claim freedom for all, but under their idea of freedom. Paul is for freedom, logic and accountability. That is why he is electable, he will obtain votes from both parties. The only, somewhat, decent argument I’ve heard against him is that America will become more of an isolationist superpower. This is a different world from the last generation’s. We cannot support powers that are against us, we cannot change the ideology of the Middle East. We cannot afford to hand out money we don’t have. We must secure our own borders and stop forcing our self interests on others. The Euro is about to collapse, China’s military is supported by the interest on the money we owe them, 80% of drug cartels profits are from marijuana (remeber prohibition when gangsters ruled, it doesn’t work) and we should bring the power back to the states like our Constitution intended. Tired of Liberal laws affecting everybody? Paul is the only answer to get the people in control of their own lives. He does not pander to the war profiteers, like so many Republicans do. Our military will be much stronger under him and it will be designed to protect our people and citizens. America will again be the envy of the world and stronger than ever under his leadership. Please listen to his words and do not trust the diatribes of the established political forces that fear him.

  • Kaycey351

    It’s difficult to grasp Ron Paul’s messages because we’ve been indoctrinated by government for so many years. We’ve all been led slowly away from our constitution as government has controlled more and more of our lives.

    • Margo Greenwell

      Exactly-Wehave been lied to and brainwashed- Now the truth is comming out!

  • Alex Frazier

    Anyone who disagrees with Ron Paul’s foreign policy needs to really take a look at what happened to the Soviet Union. They went bankrupt in the arms race. They collapsed.

    We are on the verge of the same thing, and the only thing holding it at bay is that the dollar is still the key currency internationally. When other nations move to another currency for international trade, the dollar will collapse. It will become completely worthless. Then we’ll collapse just like the Soviet Union did.

    To stop that from happening, we need fiscal sanity in the White House. We need to stop the welfare and warfare spending.

    Anyone who thinks for one second that a war with Iran is a good thing is completely ignorant. Paul’s foreign policy isn’t dangerous. The current policy of policing the world is infinitely more dangerous, because it puts us in jeopardy of financial collapse, we is just the first step to total ruin.

    • JustSayin

      Your first paragraph is antithetical to the rest of your post and RP’s position as well. USSR went bankraupt because we outspent them on weaponry and had too many bases around the world for them to compete with. For all those who like to say that Reagan ran up the debt. I’d like to ask them how much a shooting war with the USSr would have cost instead?
      Following RP’s “non-interventionist” policies would have let the USSR do as they pleased around the world because what was happening in those countries wasn’t our business. Sometimes what’s happening in your neighbors house IS your business!

        So, in other words, JustSayin, you want the United States to be the Aggressors instead of Russia? This isn’t a football game. The US military is killing people around the world, many of them completely innocent victims caught in the cross fire, and those who are are the intended targets have had no access to due justice unlike what we expect in our own country.
        It amazes me how so many people think that killing or theft is okay as long as we vote for people in Government to do the dirty work for us.

  • EternalVigilance

    Dick Morris is a hack. I recently unsubscribed from his publication because I found him to be exactly as described in this article. Ron Paul understands that American foreign policy for the last hundred years can be summarized by the phrase, ‘we know what is best for you, and if you disagree with us we will crush you with our military!” The foreign policy achievements of the United States over the last forty years are quite a thin manuscript. Dick Morris has good reason to be concerned as Ron Pauls ideas represent a stark choice about what constitutional values represent. In my lifetime we have seen the The Vietnam War, The Bay of Pigs, Grenada, US Invasion of Panama, Persian Gulf War, Bosnian Intervention, Afghanistan, Iraq II and Lybia and what exactly do we have to show for this? Somehow the Republican in Name Only folks like Morris feel that next time will prove different.

    I would suggest that the anti Paul establishment folks like Morris ponder something Ayn Rand wrote over 50 years ago in her book “Capitalism, The Unknown Ideal.”

    “The first choice—and the only one that matters—is: freedom or dictatorship, capitalism or statism.

    That is the choice which today’s political leaders are determined to evade. The “liberals” are trying to put statism over by stealth—statism of a semi-socialist, semi-fascist kind—without letting the country realize what road they are taking to what ultimate goal. And while such a policy is reprehensible, there is something more reprehensible still: the policy of the “conservatives,” who are trying to defend freedom by stealth.”

    Ron Paul is an individual who reminds us that the Constitution matters and it presents a stark alternative to the propaganda that the RINO’s and their statist colleagues represent.

The ideals of most Americans will never jibe with those of Iran, where church & state are essentially one. So, let them have it their way on their turf, and we’ll have it our way on ours. We don’t have to buy their oil. They can just starve on their own.

      So you go over to your neighbors house, beat up his kids, then wonder why he wants to smack you up, Jeff? Get real.

    Libertarians are “nuts” legalize dope?, legalize prostitution? You people who like Ron Paul are just as nutty as Ron Paul. As Bill O’Reilly put it, in Ron Paul’s 20+ years in congress he has submitted over 600 bills and only one (1) has passed. Why don’t you people try honesty and do the right thing and vote for Commisar Obama (a Soros puppet.) “Hope (utopia) Change (socialism)

    • Karolyn

      What is wrong with legalizing dope and prostitution. It would make this a safer richer country.

      • jimmy the greek

        I well smoke one to that !

      • Bill Lee

        It’s obvious you don’t have kids and don’t give a rip about the next generation. You’d be happy to live in Sodom or Gommorah. Don’t turn a God-fearing country into a hell hole for others just because you love debauchery.

        • Karolyn

          Oh, so you believe we’re winning the war on drugs? Man will NEVER stop getting high! Why don’t you people get it? As long as there is deman, there will be supply. The obscene amounts of money spent on the drug war would be better served implementing better education and rehabilitation. It is laughable that so many believe that legalizing drugs would lead to everybody running out and immediately getting high. :-) That is patently ridiculous! And – Men will ALWAYS use prostitutes – why not make it legal? The other countries that have it legalized have less crime, especially less rape. It is safer, and the state makes money on it. You can’t legislate morality.

          • Kate8

            You don’t try to legislate morality, you educate morality.

            Likewise, you can indoctrinate immorality, which has been a priority agenda.

            If we cleaned up education and began teaching right and wrong, good choices vs bad ones, and stopped denigrating churches, the family and all things moral, people would clean up themselves and make better choices on their own.

            I am for the least amount of government intervention, but I would not want open drug dealers and cat houses in my town.

            Let’s clear out the corruption and return to humanity a sense of dignity and self-respect, and hope for their children. Then they won’t want drugs and debauchery.

            Let the people regulate themselves.

    • mickey

      Well, the government could not find any way to MAKE money off MJ but could find resources to build big agencies to curb it. All the while, the big pharms built up so now we have vaccines for diseases I’ve never heard of and people so hooked on “legal” drugs the threat of a shortage causes panic.

      We have two drug agencies: one, the private prison complex, paid by head count, and the other run by pharms writing the laws to get people hooked on drugs.

      How much death, run down neighborhoods, would you like to continue to support?

      Prostitution is as old as time. Why not make it safer with testing centers? Legalized, means the pimps wouldn’t be beating the women up. (and in my opinion, would cut down on the money made by human trafficking now practiced on the border)

    • kkflash

      You sound like a good candidate for either the current Democratic or RINO Republican party, trying to impose your personal moral decisions on the rest of society. Prostitution is the world’s oldest profession. The government here has made it a crime without a victim, which is a terrible destruction of personal liberty. Criminalizing the use of some drugs while simultaneously controlling the distribution and legalized extortion of others is another of the great governmental failures of our society, and a hypocritical position. The FDA is responsible for the high cost of prescription drugs, and the DEA is responsible for the US having the highest rate of incarceration in the world. YOU CAN’T LEGISLATE MORALITY, and to try to do so always creates more problems than it solves.

    • DaveH

      Kenneth,
      I can only assume that you are smoking some of that illegal Dope. The Drugs Wars are costing us about $50 Billion a year. They’re killing and terrorizing families across the country. They’re enriching the worst segment of society (Drug Lords). And they’re allowing the Government an excuse (albeit a phony one) to ignore our 4th Amendment Constitutional rights.
      And what do you care if somebody wants to buy sex from a Prostitute? People can have sex perfectly legally for free. Why do you think money changing hands suddenly transforms that behavior into something heinous?
      Butt out of other peoples’ choices, Kenneth.

  • Cap’n John

    I am an American registered as an Independent. In my opinion Ron Paul is also an American,but registered as a Republican.He has been and is true Representative of his voting and taxpaying constituents an supporter of the united States of America Constitution. He is a true Patriot, Diplomat and statesman. I am going to vote for him and urge everyone I know to vote for him. He is competing with a group of stooges competing for Obama’s position as CEO of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Inc., a foreign owned corporation that was declared bankrupt by FDR in 1933, foreclosed by the IMF in 1938 and quit claimed to it when it became the central bank for the UN. Gingrich is a Council on Foreign Relations sponsored candidate. Romney appears to be a media sponsored flunky. I don’t know enough about the rest of the politicians running.

      Cap’n John – If you intend to vote for him, please be sure your state is an “open” primary state. In “closed “primary states, independents can’t vote in the Republican primary elections.

      If we can’t get him past the primaries, we won’t get to vote for Dr. Paul in the general election.

    Post Slams Ron Paul With Fading Elite Promotions
    Monday, January 02, 2012 – by TDB Staff Report

    Western elites always seek more domestic control, especially in America where libertarian exceptionalism is still a culturally dominant trend for tens of millions in “Red” America. The goal apparently is world government, and American exceptionalism must be eradicated in order to realize it.

    But this is not easy to do. And Ron Paul is immeasurably complicating the issue with a campaign that is as educational when it comes to freedom as it is political. He has been very effective at helping to tear down many elite memes that have been promoted for a century or more to confuse Americans (and the West generally) about the Way the World Works.

    And so, as Ron Paul proves hard to stop, the powers-that-be begin to train their bigger guns on Dr. Paul and his freedom message. He is not good for business and must be taken down. This article by Michael John Gerson in the Washington Post, for instance, is a good example.

    According to Wikipedia, Michael John Gerson is a famous speechwriter for George W. Bush who (arguably) coined the phrase “Axis of Evil.” More: “He is former senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. He served as President George W. Bush’s chief speechwriter from 2001 until June 2006, as a senior policy advisor from 2000 through June 2006, and was a member of the White House Iraq Group.”

    Gerson’s article – as we can see in the article excerpt above – touches on many major themes of the power elite. They are phony memes that have been put in place to confuse people about the power and beneficence of government.

    The elites are desperate to salvage them – and thus Gerson treats them as true and self-evident. Maybe a decade or two ago they were. But no more. Let’s examine them one by one.

  • LibRep

    Morris’ middle name is Head. When I saw him on O’Reilly denouncing Paul as “more liberal than Obama” I switched the channel and vowed to never watch Fox (or MSNBC, they’re so blatantly socialist it’s unreal). Someone above poted “But we cannot afford to be the isolationists that he would want us to be.” Well, we can’t afford to be the policemen of the world either. It won’t be long before the rest of our creditors stop raising our credit limit and cut up the card.

    I also can’t believe the rhetoric of going to Iran over 1 nuke? One nuke!? Seriously? We have to protect God’s chosen people? You know, not too long ago, Israel said they would launch an offensive against Iran if they did get the nuke, so why do we need to protect them? They have special forces that make our SEALS look like Boy Scouts. It’s time we stop meddling in world affairs. The rest of the world is tired of America being that eventual unwanted house guest who tries to run everyone elses life while living a train wreck of their own.

    For liberty and Freedom – Ron Paul 2012.

  • Marlen

    I quit listening to Dick Morris several months ago.
    I think he is a real nut case.
    I’m for Ron Paul

    • Clarence

      The New World Order has their Agent provocateurs in every strata of society.

  • Steven Jokinen

    Ron Paul offers libertarian solutions: sound money, balanced budgets and adhering to the Constitution. But Paul does not advocate isolationism. In fact, Paul has repeatedly said in debates, interviews and speeches that he advocates open trade, travel, communication and diplomacy with all nations.

    Isolationism suggests not merely a bias against the use of military force but a desire to avoid any engagement with the rest of the world, including trade, diplomacy, immigration, and cultural exchange. Paul has never been an isolationist in that sense.

    That does not describe Paul, since he supports the use of military force when it is necessary for national defense (following thr 9/11 attacks, for example).
    “The important thing is, his philosophy I’m talking about is the Constitution and freedom, and that brings people together,” Paul said. “It brings independents in the fold and it brings Democrats over on some of these issues.”

    I need a person (in the white house) that for 24 years has been saying the same thing the same message without change (please check his record). At first I thought Ron Paul was a nut, not the person for mainstream America then who was.? I carefully studied all the candates and found there is only one that defends the constitution (which all who go to office take an oath to do so) but most all do not. I even read the Constitution to see if this was so and to my surprise we are way off base in our thinking and the way we handle our affairs. Ron Paul’s Liberal views after much consideration have got me to say that I am a libertarian as well and now for the first time in my life I am proud to be an American that stands behind Ron Paul its what most of the law abiding conservative civilian’s of a free democratic society want as well. Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness. You will not find that in Huntsman, Mitt or Grngrich.

    • Vince

      Excellent post! I too struggled with Dr. Paul’s positions on many things, but as I began to really listen to him, and see what the Constitution says, I realized that almost everything he said was so right! There are a few minor things that I disagree with him on, but as a Statesman and a Constutionalist, there is none better.

      Ron Paul 2012!

    • Sol of Texas

      Steven –

      Very well stated.

  • jopa

    Mr, Ringer; If my memory serves me right I believe it was the bailout of the banks by the Bush administration that brought the Teabagger Party into existence, not Obama.

  • TriumphOver Evil

    I think Dick Morris is a big, fat nut still encased in its shell. He will never see the truth because he’s a part of the NWO system and a globalist just like every other politician who’s been elected into office and ends up becoming a multi-millionaire.

    America’s world governance began with the takeover of our currency by the Federal Reserve in 1913. Illegal wars have been created by the bankers ever since, and every war began with a false flag and has caused the lives of many Americans. The bankers are nothing but Satonic horse dung whose goal is to take over the world and worship nothing but evilness. They’ve proved that by making homosexuality and beastiality legal and forcing it down the throats of those who oppose it.

    Ron Paul is right – we should not be policing the world, we should make drugs legal to take the money and power away from the CIA, and we, in a moral society, should not allow our Constitutional laws to apply to homos and beasts. What’s going to be next – a wild animal hiring an attorney to sue a human being for rape? It’s just as well since our society, and entire civilization of mankind altogether, has gone to the dogs. Ethical behavior doesn’t mean screwing animals, but that’s a natural thought process for politicians because they think of us as nothing but animals, and have been screwing us up the behind for decades.

    America needs some sanity brought back into its government and Dr. Paul is the only one who is sane enough to tell the truth. A civilization cannot exist without the truth and practically every politician so far has morally decayed our country and people as human beings by brainwashing them with one lie piled on top of another lie. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. You’re not going to get different results when the same pile of s$$t is elected into office. Barack Obama has proved that.

    ..Strength & Honor..

  • Russ

    There seems to be 5 to 6 knumbskulls that have posted here. People that say that they agree with Ron Paul but say that they cannot vote for the man are without a doubt George Soros minions. These cretins couldn’t think for themselves if it was their last chance to stay out of the FEMA camps. I agree with the poster who said that the day is coming soon where either these zombies will wake up or they will just be another target in a target rich environment. I served in these illegal wars and let me tell you all this. Soldiers know when they are being used as cannon fodder and understand the duties that we all should understand and that is there is no loyalty to any man or government but only to our Constitution and our Republic. Ron Paul will help the American people realize liberty, equality and justice once agian. RON PAUL FOR PRESIDENT NOT A GLOBALIST.

    • Danny Seal

      A truth well spoken. As much as I love and have loved America, my home, I believe she has crossed over the line. There is hardly enough people left who know what common decency is. Immorality is rampant. The ruling elite is full of filth and Ron Paul would have to fend for his life especially when he starts messing with their money.

      • DaveH

        Loving America does not mean that we have to love the corrupt Leaders.

  • Jay

    Ron Paul represents the ideology that Republican insiders most fear: conservatism. Not the corrupt, inside-the-beltway construct that goes by that name, but actual conservatism.

    And if he wins the Iowa Republican Caucus vote on January 3—a real, though far from certain, prospect—the party bosses will have to do everything in their power to prevent Paul from reasserting the values of the “old-right” Republicans who once stood, steadily and without apology, in opposition to wars of whim and assaults on individual liberty.

    Make no mistake, the party bosses are horrified at the notion that a genuine conservative might grab the Iowa headlines from the false prophets.

  • Flo

    Ron Paul: The guy that said he would not have gone to war against Hitler. The guy that calls the Reagan administration a dramatic waste. I guess the demise of the USSR was not worth mentioning. Ron Paul is that crazy uncle you have to see at Christmas and Christmas is over. I don’t care if he wins every primary, he still won’t be the nominee.

    • mickey

      We have become Hitler. They want to call it nation building but in reality, we are interferring in political affairs and installing by regime change by anything. The current trend is to install Muslim Brotherhood. We take over their economies, destroy their political systems.

      Russia killed itself by perpetual wars, just like we are doing.

    • Vince

      We didn’t “defeat” the USSR, they collapsed through their horrific economic policies and by SPENDING TOO MUCH.

      Reagan’s administration WAS a waste because taxes were raised, spending skyrocketed, and the Democrats got what they wanted way too much. Reagan was a little too naive and believed that the Dems would keep their word, but Ron Paul is under no such illusions.

      He doesn’t trust the Demicans OR the Republicrats, and for good reason! You shouldn’t either.

    • jimmy the greek

      If we never went to war with Hitler Europe today would not be the liberal $h!t pit it is today , israel would not exist so we would no be having the trouble in the middle east we are having today , wall street would be much more honest with out all the zionist money changers robing your IRA and pension funds , the world would be much better off .

It will be ok, enough war have we learned NOTHING, no weapons of mass distruction, noboogie man, wake up your government has ALWAYS lied to US!

    • Airangel

      Those neutral countries never lift a finger to help either…it is humanly unconscienable to allow villages be burned down, invaded, women and children raped and tortured and when your neighbors will not help save you, you pray someone will come in and help you…that’s like watching a little boy be raped and molested and doing nothing all the while the little boy is looking at you the “onlooker” to please make it stop! The USA is still the most compassionate, humanitarian country not just policing but offering AID all over the globe (we are far from perfect but still who many turn to as their last hope)…these dictators starve their people, enslave them, force them into prostitution, drug smuggling, female brutality, etc..I just pray Iraq can hang on to what they have now and Iran doesn’t come in and topple them…there are brave souls that fought for their freedom with us and many cried when we left because they knew what they would face and because they would miss the friendships developed…many in Iran also want liberated…these people suffer much from these evil, corrupt empires! The Media never shows the good, only the negative!

      • Will Larimer

        Your points are well considered and honorable and passionate. Three very good attributes. The problem with flying around the globe killing bad guys is it costs money. We have been the good guys long enough that we are broke. Far beyond broke, many trillions of dollars in debt and the commies we borrow from to support this and all other extraconstitutional government programs have seen the light that they will never get repayed. As soon as the chicom dictatorship believes that it is in their best interest to not support their second largest consumer market, ALL these cuts will happen anyway and the republic will be ruined and disolved. Let’s take our lumps now and save the republic for our children and grandchildren.

      • mickey

        Well, a lot of those countries are supported by our $$. I saved my pennies in a jar for Africa (1950′s) and how is Africa now?

        Like Paul says, we take money from poor people (here) and give it to rich people in other countries.

        Romney? he is a big business person and war and drugs are big business. He’s just another obama.

      • Karolyn

        Most Iraqis I have seen interviewed are very happy the US military is gone. As far as the US being the world’s charity, let the charities handle it, not the government. The enslaved people need to wake up and change things. Yes, that might sound harsh, but it really is the truth. The problem is they are so used to life as they know it (just like here) that they cannot muster the motivation to change anything. What goes around comes around, and a people who are discouraged and downtrodden who don’t change will continue to receive the same treatment no matter how much “saving” the US does. It is what it is.

      • kkflash

        I’m sympathetic to your view, as I’ve always believed in a person’s responsibility to help those less fortunate than themselves, and have tried to practice charity all my life. But, I lost my job recently, and now have no money to give, and so have had to curtail my donations. The USA is like that, broke, and needing badly to put its own financial house in order before any further donations to the downtrodden. Stopping the constant handouts, both domestically and abroad, is critical to teaching the less fortunate (nations) to fend for themselves. This does not mean that we shouldn’t remain vigilant and attentive to aggressive threats throughout the globe. Those that need our help need only ask, and we can evaluate each request on its merits.

      • DaveH

        Airangel,
        There are always at least two sides to every conflict. It is fine for you to pick a side and participate with your own life and money, but don’t tell me which side to pick.

THAT’S WHY SWITZERLAND HAS MORE LOCK BOXES THAN IT HAS SOLDIERS.

  • Bill Lee

    What Bobby Ringer conveniently leaves out is that RP, Mr. pure would legalize prostitution. Someone tell me how that will benefit civilization? Someone tell me how RP would stop with his line of logic at heterosexual prostitution? Tell me how as a father of three teenage boys I can proudly say I’m home to the free and the male prostitute? RP once told a group of Bible believing Christians that he was 100% biblical. Now who’s the biggest liar on the block? RP wants to strike “In God We Trust” as our national motto. Yep that’s freedom. Freedom from God. Read your history. When any civilization decides to be rid of the God of the Bible they get dusted on way or the other. Nearly every president has understood where we would fall when we go our own way starting with George Washington. Get a clue.

    • Vince

      He’s not going to “legalize” it, pal. He’s just going to get the federal government out of your business. If your State wants to make it illegal, then whatever, but it is NOT the business of the federal government to dictate ANYTHING to you OR your State.

    • Will Larimer

      Bobby,
      I question your assertation that RP is pro prostitution. I believe RP wants to limit federal involvement in areas (almost all areas) that aren’t specifically authorised by the constitution. He and our constitution say that prostitution is a state by state issue and totally up to the morality or lack of it in any states electorate. The same with federal dope laws and all like issues.

    • Karolyn

      Wherever prostitution is legal, it works. That’s the bottom line. There are regulations, taxes and control. It will never be legislated out of existence, just like drugs.

    • kkflash

      Please tell me how criminalizing prostitution has helped society?

    • Clarence

      FREEDOM is Biblical. God created us with complete freedom of choice. He also informed us as to the consequences of our choices. If God doesn’t force us to conform to his ideals why should you, are you above God??

  • SpecialKinNJ

    And it’s the morning of the day when folks caucus in I O Way, and the end of which we’ll see how far a pol yclept Paul can go on unleaded ec.cen.tri.ci.ty.

    It’s enough to give saner? folks pause, that a fellow with views such as his could be thought of as a potential nominee for any office,
    much less the GOP’s contender for the pres.i.den.cy.

    However, no matter what the outcome in I O Way, it is comforting
    to be able to say, it is not a good bet act.u.ar.i.al.ly, that the winner will be the ultimate GOP nominee–especially if Rep. Paul happens to carry the day.

    By inference from his 10-some terms in the House folks in his Texas district don’t grouse about one such as he, marked by ec.cen.tri.ci.ty (and he clearly doesn’t come across as a louse).

    This morning on Fox his son, Rand, in Ron’s defense took the stand,
    saying his Dad’s foreign policy was as rational as rational can be,
    especially in calling for doubt re the evil motives of Iran.

    Moreover, Rand cited as evidence there of–and without blinking! — the fact that “we” countered a nuclear-armed USSR without war, failing to mention that Ronnie espoused MAD and Trust, but Verify, as U.S. “policy par”.

    Of course, reciting the litany of peculiarities in the positions of Rep. Ron Paul, would take time away from attention to the caucus in I O Way — which we don’t await with breath bated, and by the results won’t be (too) aggravated — at long last being held there today.

    Note. In the interest of decorum we avoid speaking of Paul v Santorum.

  • Steve Edwards

    I though you were going to say “Barack Obama” not Adolf Hitler

  • Airangel

    Ron Paul would serve well as a czar over the Federal Reserve but I don’t see him as a leader or President…A Financial policy guru yes, but not President…the world is too dangerous now, we need secure borders, we need “Made in USA again”, we need private sector jobs and we don’t need another “On-the-job” training president…Iran not only poses a threat to Israel but to the whole Middle East…some leaders are compassionate and disciplined…Iran is not…any leader that would nuke their neighbor and murder women and children and do it in the name of Allah is evil and blasphemy. Genocide is already being committed on Christians all over just as Hitler murdered millions of Jews for no reason…sorry Ron Paul is as misguided as Obama on the apology bandwagon with these murdering dictators! We need someone with a spine when dealing with these illogical Arabs who refuse to assimilate and I am so happy to see their women finally standing up to their cruelty…Ron Paul would allow Sharia Law in America and I won’t have it!

    • Vince

      Ron Paul would allow the CONSTITUTION in America. WAKE UP!

      As to the rest, Ron Paul is the prefect “Made in USA,” bring the jobs back, lower the taxes, reduce the government president. You apparently have only been listening to what the media says about him.

      Hint: the media lie.

    • kkflash

      Without a Constitutionalist at the top of the political pyramid, the rape of the American people at the hands of government will only worsen. You seem overly concerned about nation half way across the world that can’t even feed its own people, when the people of our own country are relinquishing our rights to overreaching government every day of every year. People throughout US history have fled repression and come here for the freedom we offer. If other countries’ government repress the citizens, they should and will leave that country, leaving no one for the dictators to dictate to. The responsibility we accept along with the freedom we enjoy is that of preserving it, and that means following its guiding principles as written in our Constitution. Ron Paul is doing that and deserves our support.

  • http://wildblue C Derr

    Ron Paul is spot on with most of his political views. He is the only candidate who has never changed his beliefs so as to be politically correct. As far as his foreign policy, there once was a little thing called the Monroe Doctrine which most Americans have forgetten about long ago. It states that, Do not become entangled in foreign affairs. We as Americans need to go back and take heed to the Founding fathers advice and clean our act up. If another country attacks us, wipe them off the face of the earth. As far as the gold standard is concerned, is there something wrong with sound money? The federal reserve needs to go. He would have to be very careful with this issue though as this was John Kennedy`s goal and we all know what happened to him. The one thing that i believe that all Americans can agree on is that this country cannot stand another four years of this communist trojan horse. He is absolutely the worst president this country has ever seen including Carter.

    • NC

      C Derr you need to go “Prosperity and the Presidents’a 2004 forbes article on research done on the 10 administrations from Truman to bush as to economic strength. If memeory serves me right Carter ranked about 5th on the list.. Above at least 3 Republicans with bush I being dead last. If bush II had completed his terms there is little doubt that he would have been dead last since he father the “second worst economic recession” in our nations history. look it up!

    I wouldn’t call the congressman a “pure” conservative as his foreign policy/defense policy views are not in accordance with the conservative approach nor are some of his libertarian views. He’s a libertarian.

    • Clarence

      A “pure” conservative is one who wants to conserve what we have now, Ron Paul wants to liberate us and restore the Constitution as the supreme law of the land.

    • DaveH

      Who do you know, Al, who has stuck more purely to the Constitution and to the greatest Founders’ (such as Jefferson and Madison) ideals than Ron Paul has?
      Ron Paul is a True Conservative. Those you think Conservative are really NeoConservatives.

  • JustSayin

    Current estimates are that the value of the total of all known gold in the world is 20T and that the amount of gold mined in any year is ~12B. Anybody here want to tell me how we’re going to reconcile that? RP’s ideas sound good, but the devil’s in the details.
    On the other hand, I do agree that if we’re going to print our own money we should do so, not “borrow” it from some shadow corporation.

    • Vince

      Because most of the trillions of dollars in circulation are worthless, and created out of thin air either by the FED or through the derivatives market.

      There’s more than enough gold, silver, and other precious metal to support the entire world’s economy: goods’ and services’ prices would adjust to the market, making gold worth even more.

    • kkflash

      The small amount of gold mined each year is one of the very reasons it is a great choice for the world to use it as money, as people have for thousands of years. The difficulty of obtaining gold creates scarcity, prevents the governments from increasing the (gold) money supply at their whim, as they constantly do with fiat money. Giving governments the ability to increase the money supply at will is a license to steal its value from the people and place that value in the hands of the power elite (the Fed). Some other characteristics that make good, sound money are divisibility, portability, stable value, intrinsic value. Gold has all of these and fiat money doesn’t.

      • DaveH

        I’m so happy to see so many who are ‘getting it’. I think we have a very real chance of getting our Freedom back. But the Despots will do everything they can to stop our Free Exchange of ideas, so it isn’t going to be easy.

  • http://printing-for-profit.com Gary

    Is there a more elastic definition in today’s politics than “CONSERVATIVE”. I can say I am a conservative because I prefer a Qwerty keyboard over a Dvorak keyboard on my computer. Whether I believe in the constitution becomes irrelevant.

      A conservative is one who wants to conserve what we have now, Ron Paul wants to liberate us and restore the Constitution as the supreme law of the land.

  • Robert

    Has any other candidate even mentioned auditing the Fed? At least Paul has the guts to make this statement and set America back to sensible use of its monies. What in the world gives the Fed the right to bail out GM and Chrysler, banks, brokerage houses, and even foreign banks? Foreign Banks being supported by the US taxpayer! How sick is that? Hell, we can’t even care for our veterans who come back from war.

  • Joyce

    What some are forgetting is that Ron Paul has NO CHANCE of being elected. Some of his ideas are very good and the rest would be disastrous in my opinion. With his stated leadership we should start learning to be a good Muslim or maybe learn to speak Chinese as this country couldn’t survive unless some other country would protect us. And who would that be? Issolationism has been tried before and won’t work now and if one of the bully countries takes over the rest of the world, there is no chance for us to survive.
    The amount of hate propogated by some RP supporters against other candidates is destructive.

    • jdst

      Joyce…….you are too influenced by the news media which makes news and doesn’t report it….unless it is about the personal decadent lives of entertainers….just like the British press….oh…our press and news media is owned by the Brits……we need to wake up as to who the real enemy is…..the only thing that has changed since the Revolutionary War is our perception of the British Oligarchy

    • kkflash

      At this point he has a good and growing chance of being elected, as his message of constitutional liberty becomes better understood by people such as yourself. The hate you refer to is no characteristic of Ron Paul supporters, as it is with Obama supporters. (Although, I must admit Paul supporters seem to uniformly express severe dislike, if not hate, for big government and political corruption.) The principles he stands for are central to the beliefs of nearly all Americans. Those who denigrate his stance on certain issues, including the mainstream media, have consistently distorted his statements, his views and the facts to try to label him a “nut”, or “unelectable”. Some of this is intentional, with political gain as a motivation. In your case, I believe it’s merely a lack of understanding of his positions. I encourage you to visit his website or YouTube and listen to the man speak on the many video links available. He’s neither a nut nor unelectable, but rather a true patriot with the preservation of our nation as his one goal.

    Well, just the fact that Morris jumped ship from the Klinton camp should tell you everything you need to know. The way he’s acting towards Ron Paul just further confirms his status as party apparatchik and overall buffoon! Ron Paul is probably the last, best chance for this sinking ship we call a nation.

  • Rickey

    Joyce, take a look around! It’s not the Ron Paul supporters spewing hate – it’s the other way ’round! It’s amazing what happens when a candidate isn’t the state/party choice?! And I’m deliberately using the word “state” in the same context as in “Soviet state!” Think folks, stop blindly accepting the mainstream BS! The MSM is in bed with the same folks that are driving us down this road to destuction!

  • John Acord

    I have no doubt that Ron Paul’s nomination will be derailed by lies, innuendo, fear mongering, tricks, assassination, any tools that the neo-cons can bring to the battle. I will stand with him to the end for after Paul there will be chaos. Today, I will kneel in prayer asking for our Savior’s intervention. I want to be proven wrong.

    Dick Morris is a 100% bought and paid for member of the Trilateral Commission, Council on Foreign Relations, & Bilderbergs, along with Both Clintons.,,,aka NWO Elite. Those Socialist groups are now pulling Morris’ Puppet strings to make his mouth move, against Ron Paul.
    Ron Paul is a threat to the NEW WORLD ORDER scheme to take over America.
    They can say all they want, Ron Paul’s Voting Record has been PRO AMERICA all the way.

    Is this the Robert J. Ringer who wrote the best self help book ever written, “Looking Out For #1″? Loved that un-PC book but hate his choice of candidates.
    If you ever want to be lit up by hate mail make a comment against Ron Paul or make a conservative statement on Moveon.orgy or the Puffingtonpost. You will meet the rudest and most insulting people you ever had the misfortune to meet.
    Liberals love to see R.P. divide us conservatives since a vote for R.P. is a vote for B-Ho! He can’t beat B-Ho in the Presidential race and both of their foreign policies are a disaster for America.

    • Will Larimer

      My take is that NO republican will vote for another go around with Uhbamma. Many disgruntled demonicrats will certainly vote for RP and because of the even split of the parties, THE ONLY HOPE TO GET RID OF UHBAMMA IS TO VOTE FOR Ron Paul. It seems so simple to me. Am I delusioned?

    • Sol of Texas

      Ringer also wrote “Winning Through Intimidation”. The title is misleading to most. It’s not a “how-to” book on intimidating others, but a how-to book on preventing oneself from being intimidated.

      If listening to what the pundits interpret as a candidate’s position were the final word, it wouldn’t make sense to hold elections.

      My fellow Americans, it is your duty to your forefathers, to your progeny, and especially to yourselves to reflect on your personal philosophy (I hope you actually have one that is not superficial), and carefully evaluate the candidates. Then vote for the person who most seems to fit your beliefs. Don’t be afraid to try to persuade or influence those you have relationships with. This election will come down to preservation of personal liberty or the triumph of a statist oligarchy.

      If you have only a superficial philosophy, please don’t bother to vote. It is a meaningless gesture and you probably WANT someone else to run your affairs.

    • kkflash

      ANY Republican candidate can beat Obama now that his inept leadership has been revealed by 3 years in office. The difference among them is that Ron Paul will actually do what he says once in office. He’ll actually reduce the size and scope of our oppressive government to one that we can both afford and support. The other candidates represent more of the continuous erosion of our freedom, as if the Constitution didn’t exist. I’m tired of flip-floppers, crony capitalism, the welfare state, deficit spending, and big government. I’m voting for Ron Paul and doing all I can to convince others to do the same.

    • DaveH

      Conservative? There is only one True Conservative left in the Republican primaries. He is Ron Paul. The rest are part of the small minority of Leaders and Crony Capitalists who like their positions of Power and Perks obtained at the rest of our expense, and who will pass any bill regardless of its Constitutionality. They are not Conservatives, they are NeoConservatives, and our Freedom-Loving Founders would roll in their graves at the thought of them calling themselves Conservatives.

  • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Mimi

    Mr. Ringer,
    You sure do bring out the ‘nuts’ and anti-semites etc. Between you and Obama, division is the operative word. Mr. Paul certainly has made some good points, but that’s where it ends. He is not living in the real world. We cannot ignore and avoid the world situation, by sitting back and watching Iran and other middle east countries take over, like Hitler did. We are not dealing with rational people. They are madmen trying to take over countries and kill whoever stands in their way. If Iran and other middle east countries go ballistic, we will be in a Third World War, whether we want to or not. Ron Paul seems to be in Lalaland. Even Obama who is a Muslim sympathizer, is being forced to take a slightly stronger stance, because of the intelligence that’s being given him. It’s easy for liberal Americans who haven’t a clue to make judgements, but they have no facts to educate them, the media and the politicians see to that. For them it’s all ideology against what is happening in the real world. Trying to reason with Liberals is a waste of time, because you can’t reason with a wall. As a Liberal friend of mine said to me so brilliantly, “I’m right, you’re wrong, and that’s that”. With ‘minds’ like that, you can’t reason. Remember everyone: “United We Stand”, but “Divided We Fall”, and we are falling, thanks to this administration and the Liberal Progressives.

    • Will Larimer

      How far in debt will we have to go to kill the last madman, murderous dictator or other miscreant? We are broke and soon will not be able to borrow any more money. Logic would dictate that you cut spending while you still have a chance to service existing debt and just wish the rest of the world well with a promise to be back to help when we can better afford too. Military might is totally dependent on cubic money. We spent ours for generations into the future already. Let’s admit it and just let the chips fall where they may. Ron Paul 2012.

    • Michael Hardesty

      Mimi, Hitler never tried to take over the world and neither has Iran.
      You are buying into FDR’s Big War Lies. None of our wars since the Revolutionary War have been defensive OR justified.
      Our entrance in WW1 brought on the Bolshevik consolidation of power, Versailles Treaty, then Hitler. After WW2 Communist takeover of half the world and Mao kills 100 million people in China plus Korean and Indochinese wars where both the Communists AND the US killed many millions. Israel’s Lobby brought on both unnecessary Iraq wars since 1991 at a cost of 5 TRILLION to the USA.

    I read those newsletters which were written by Lew Rockwell. They were and are great ! They are factually true, the ‘racism’ weasel word of the Left needs to be exposed.
    Why would Paul condemn them ? Why would he honor a lifelong Marxist Socialist like M.L. King who had solid Communist Party USA backing in his ranks and whose sit-ins on private businesses were a gross initiation of physical force ?
    Why does the Left always determine the premises of the debate ?
    The only issue about ‘racism’ is that no government may practice it because we are all forced to support it involuntarily.
    Otherwise there should be no anti-discrimination legislation and the EEOC should be the first to go.
    Racial differences are as objectively real as sexual differences.
    If the libertarian continues it’s cowardly default on this hot issue it is going to be taken over by unsavory national socialist elements.
    There’s nothing to conserve after 150 years of Big Gov starting with Lincoln. Paul needs to be as radical as Rand and Rothbard.

  • Don the Canuck

    A strong military is only possible with a strong economy. Which candidate is the best bet to create the environment that will translate into a strong economy?

    Having said that……..what does a strong economy allow for? It allows for a strong defense, which is something RP believes in. Not a strong offense, not a worldwide presence in 130 countries or more, but a strong machine that can strike fast, win a warm, and get out as fast as they got in. Those who do not yet understand what his position is on foreign policy should spend more time reading his books and reading reports from the CIA and other intelligence agencies. Blowback is real and it is a fact.

    If the U.S. even thinks too hard about getting involved in Iran, be prepared to speak Mandarin ……..because at this point China will be awakened. You cannot tell other people how to live their lives forever. The bigger dude will knock you down you at some point. Simple as that.

    The U.S. needs to better educate its people on the issues so that they can make better choices for their future. The population needs to start seeking out the truth instead of listening to the establishment backed main stream media. If you base your opinions on what fox or msnbc says, then you are going to remain ignorant by choice. This ignorance is what got you to where the U.S. is right now. Perhaps it is time to actually educate yourselves.

    RP supporters have spent more time reading the issues and have a much better grasp of them than most other candidates supporters. This is the reason they are very passionate about their support. The truth does not create flip-floppers. It is the endgame for most people. It is the truth that ultimately attracts the educated. No compromise, no corruptibility, no ulterior motives, just the truth. Only guy speaking it is Ron Paul. Pretty clear to see. This guy is not a public speaker, nor is he a politician. He is a statesman, a believer in freedom and liberty. No other candidate has the grasp of economics like he does, nor do they have a squeaky clean voting record with regards to what the constitution allows.

    Read, read, read and educate yourselves. Anything less and you are basically allowing this circus in Washington to continue.

    So some don’t like Ron Paul because they believe Paul is going to let Iran develop a nuclear bomb. It’s not been proven that Iran is really working on a bomb. There we go again operating on assumptions. Assumptions got us into this incredibly stupid expensive war in Iraq in which we upset the balance of power by taking out it’s leader. Anyway Iran’s leadership likes to rattle your cage with heated retoric. Remember the Russians in the 60′s had 30,000 nuclear warheads and could have delivered them. They told us they were going to bury us. What became of that retoric? Don’t get sucked into retoric so darn fast!

    If Ron Paul becomes relevant in this race then Willard Romney will turn on his money machine against him like he did the Newt.In today’s world money talks and Democracy as it once was doesn’t exist.

    A “conservative” does not run off to war, half cocked, without getting his facts straight, ascertaining that it is in the national interest, and that it can be won.

    A ‘conservative” does not spend more money than he takes in.

    A “conservative” realizes we can’t police the whole world, force our way of life on everyoe else, or be everything to everyone.

    A “conservative” respects the wisdom of the founding fathers and respects what is written in the Constitution.

    A “conservative” submits to higher power (God).

    A “conservative” respects life, even when it’s not “convenient”.

    A “conservative” lets people be all they can be, and doesn’t want to steal from one person to give to another.

    Ron Paul expouses all these beliefs.

    • Sam

      Conservatives do not want the defense budget cut, drugs legalized, allies abandoned, abortion on demand, open borders, Iran to have nuclear weapons,or believe the USA provoked the 9/11 attack – Ron Paul does.

  • Earl, QUEENS, NY

    IMHO, some of you people are losing your credibility. Do you really support a candidate who’s no better than Obama on foreign policy?? We must remember that this year is the most critical election year in history. Consider recent polls, which show Obama rising in job approval ratings. That’s pathetic, given that BHO is such a proven failure!! Of course, it is our side that is much to blame, given that we just do not (yet) have a good choice to challenge BHO 11 months from now. What’s discouraging is the fact that a fool like Ron Paul is rising in popularity. He may be better on some domestic issues than BHO, but is just another George McGovern on foreign policy. So why would we nominate someone who can’t honestly debate BHO on foreign policy??

    Clearly there are better choices. Rick Santorum and Michelle Bachmann are the type we should vote for in primaries. Likewise, I’d like to see Herman Cain re-enter the race. He needs to fight back against the lies and/or frivolous allegations of sexual harassment, and should sue his accusers where appropriate. We need true conservatives – not nincompoops like Ron Paul or RINOs like Romney or Huntsman. LOOK AT HISTORY!! Although not perfect, Ronald Reagan was a bold outspoken conservative, and he won in 2 landslides. The weak moderates Gerald Ford, Bob Dole and John McCain lost!! Don’t people understand common sense?? Why would so many people among us want to repeat past mistakes?? Send a message to the GOP establishment – VOTE WISELY IN THE PRIMARIES!!!!

    • kkflash

      After Ron Paul, Michelle Bachmann would be my second choice. She has solid conservative views, but is simply too inexperienced to be the leader of the free world. She has about as much time in Washington DC as Obama did when elected, and we know where that got us. She has proven she’s not ready for primetime by making several foolish statements in public forums, and a President just cannot do that. I like her for 2012, after Ron Paul has gotten the country back on track.

  • Olin Ross

    The nut and crackpot is really Sore Dick Morris…..This guy is known for making stupid, nerdy & off the wall comments….He is a complete idiot..He is a total loser that is why Clinton kick his dumb a$$ to the curb when he was president…Just google him and you will understand why he makes such outlandish remarks…

  • Virgil Harden

    The comments of Dick Morris is akin to dialogues from comedic greats such as Bob hope with the exception the Bob didn’t disguise his routine as anything other than comedy.
    Ron Paul is probably the only real patriotic candidate on the platform. As far as him taking a vote away from the Republician nominee and thus allowing Barrack o’ to win again,,,, What ‘s the difference? the “so-called” republicians are so much like o’bummer that we can barely see the difference. Ron Paul is the only light on the platform! RIGHT ON! Mr. Ringer

  • Barry

    Sound Money is the key!! First Nation to have it WINS!! Ron Paul gets us there. Whoever owns or stewards the Gold and Silver Wins. Ron Paul can HEAL this nation. Nobody else has the heart to do that. It starts WITH MONEY. ( RIGHTEOUS MONEY) GOLD /SILVER. WAHICH CAUSES NO Debt to enslave us.But a surplus to cause STRONG FORCES for our Nation. Ron Paul is by far the best leader for this Nation. When other Nations STOP Lending to us we will be in deep Trouble. But China’s decline will look to invest and they will look around the world and say it is The USA.. Israel will soon become the envy of the Nations . Ron Paul gets the banks to do what they are set up to do and that is to lend to its people That is what the Gold standard does it makes the banks to do what is suppose to do. No Robbing .Go America Go Ron Paul . Let do it.

  • Lynn

    Who cares what Dick Morris says? I care what Ron Paul says and does. I am convinced this man is an ego on steroids with not much accomplished to show for this ego. He talks a talk I, in truth, like. He votes in Congress and he writes Bills in Congress as he is paid to do but, what has he gotten DONE except to get personally wealthy? And, to cause history to illustrate Obama won by historic landslide against the GOP. (This not to say I liked McCain, or the GOP, I did/do not but, not my point.) I point this out without having heard what Morris has spouted! Look at what has been done, what has been accomplished… look don’t listen for God’s sakes!!!

  • americanfreedom70

    It would seem many of you have overlooked on important point. War should be waged by Generals, not politicians. If we want to eliminate the threat we need to start leveling entire countries as we did Nazi Germany. We are fighting an ideoligy, nt just a ruller. The Nazi’s kept a very low profile after WW2 because they knew no matter who found them out, or where they were discovered, they would be tried and if convicted, killed. This was very effective. Don’t missunderstand, I do not abdicate neuclear bombings. Russia has developed a bomb as powerful as a nuke, without the unpleasant side effects. Until we are willing to go the distance (it would probably only take one or two good examples) and send an unmistakable message that we “will not tollerate agression against America, or its citizens. We are doomed to the drudgery of empty promises, and constant threats with other nations. Once the big kid beat you bloody, you stoped talking smack.Run Paul Run! We got this!

    I, and 90% of TRUE CONSERVATIVES, will not vote for Ron Paul! He is NOT A REPUBLICAN, he is a LIBERTARIAN, always has been and always will be. I refuse to join a cult of idiots marching to the pied piper of incompetence.

    A vote for Ron Paul is a vote GUARANTEEING an Obama win!

    • kkflash

      Ron Paul is not afraid to admit he’s a Libertarian running on the Republican ticket. He’s smart enough to realize the current political mechanism in the US is fixed so only a candidate supported by one of the two major parties can win. What you fail to see is that this is a good thing, not a shortcoming. The Republican party (and the Democrats too) have failed the American people. They have both conspired to systematically rob the citizenry of their constitutional rights, their money and their freedom.
      As for your comment about incompetence, Ron Paul is the most experienced, qualified, consistent and proven candidate in the race and your assertion otherwise proves you to be the incompetent one.

    • CJM

      David: So what if Ron Paul is a Liberterian…you think the RNC contenders are better? Really???? Think again, because a vote for romney or gingrich is a vote for obammy policies should they actually win the Oval Office. And I can tell you this: If either of these two commie jerks get into the Oval Office, the first thing they will do is pull a Jerry Ford on the American public—giving obammy and his cohorts in crime a Presidential Pardon so they cannot be prosecuted for their criminal acts while obammy was in office. The second thing they will do is uphold all the ILLEGAL LAWS obammay signed while in office, including exonerating the hated obammycare.

      • CJM

        Addendum: I also meant to include providing amnesty to those damnable illegals who are stealing our jobs and bilking the State coffers.

    Ron Paul is a true constitutional 2nd Amendment (pro gun rights) whereas Gingrich and Romney are pro “gun control” advocates.

    Well said indeed! No matter what he does have some sound ideas. Getting rid of or auditing the Fed for one. As far as the other negative news about him? It would appear that Obama as well as some other questionable candidates are out to discredit and put him up there as a crazy and dangerous egotist. Well Romney and Santorum don’t exactly come off as the most rational or effectual candidates on the market either. And as far as being an accomplished Senator? Well if you were up against so many who are hell bent on shooting down any bill you propose ; then you’d come off as incompetent also. The political game playing in Washington has become so one sided that if you’re not with the agenda you’re going to be either dismissed or bullied into backing down one way or another.

  • Ken Banks

    I am a Republican but am totally disgusted with the GOP’s agenda of destroying the middle class and the Dem’s socialist agenda. Bush, Chaney, and Rove did tremendous damage to our country. And then McCain was nominated to oppose Obama. These are the reasons that we have a Chesire cat in the White House, the queen of hearts in the House, the mad hatter in the Senate, and two RED rabbits in the fed. reserve and treasury digging deep holes. If you are happy with where our country stands today, just vote for a stuffed shirt like Romney, Gingrich or Perry. You will get more of the same. I’m voting for Paul because he has been screaming about fixing this country. I feel that he will be working for me, not the GOP.

    • kkflash

      If anyone has any doubts about Ron Paul’s sincerity when he says he’ll cut government down to size, here’s a little factoid that may help to convince you. He has REFUSED his Congressional pension. That’s right. He’s not going to take a dime from a government that he knows can’t afford it.

    • Sam

      You may be a Republican, but I seriously doubt it. The GOP has no plan to destroy the Middle, or any other, class. People like you are the reason we have a Muslim in the White House. You couldn’t think your way out of a paper bag. The 2008 election was lost, because McCain was an inept candidate who refused to confront Obama. It was his elction to lose and he did a damn good job of it!

      • 2¢ worth…

        “The GOP has no plan to destroy the Middle, or any other, class”.. Sam (the sham).

        Get real dumb ass.. It was heading for JUST that with your dummy leaders in charge and the majority of GOP knew this and didn’t want to go down in history as the true rapers of it’s own citizens. I agree that all GOP voters never wanted to screw the middle class (as they too are a part of this class) No, it was the leaders that they had no choice in electing who WAS intent on doing this (and more) thus honest and moralistic Republicans either stayed home or voted Democrat with the rest of the Nation.. Now the tide will reverse, there will be a good minority of Reps who will vote for Paul and even a larger minority of Dems. thus TWO minorities make a substantial majority (what? you honestly think that the majority of Dems likes the way things are progressing now? I think you need a reality check as Dems are ALSO a middle class and neither Dems nor reps are finding jobs.. and contrary to popular propaganda, not all Dem/liberals are on welfare!!).. put a majority vote of independents into the mix and you WILL have a new President. And we should all pray that our hopes will become a final reality. Anyone less will repeat the worst of our history.

        • 45caliber

          All revolt comes from the middle class. Only they are concerned about how the country is led and have the funds to buy the guns to take it back.

          Therefore, ALL politicians of both parties know this – and by eliminating the middle class as has been done in most third world countries, they can insure that revolt does not happen. It ONLY happens in such countries if – 1) – some other government decides to help the poor revolt by providing weapons and soldiers with the expectation of taking over after the existing government is kicked out or – 2) – if the revolt is supported by the clergy who are the only middle class in the country. They can particularly insure it doesn’t happen (if they eliminate the middle class) by using the existing spy tech to insure no one does get a chance to form an opposition group. (Why do you think that 60% of all spy satellites are pointed at the US? They want to keep an eye on us!)

    Ron Paul does indeed live in the last century when he says that iran should have nuclear weapons and that they cause no danger to the U.S.

  • Bruce

    Good article, Robert! I wonder, though, if you recall that during the early stages of the “tea party”, the establishment republicans were not, significantly, involved with the “tea party”. Rather, it was a compilation of the other elements you note above (“…Tea Party voters, but independents, moderate Democrats and anti-war people of all stripes.”), INCLUDING the libertarians. It appears that many of these have removed themselves from the “tea party” since the extreme conservatives have found a voice / portal and been invited in. I believe that Mr. Paul can, and will, regain some of those elements ESPECIALLY if he transfers to a third party!

  • 2¢ worth…

    I think the lot of you ‘cons’ (concerning Paul) are nothing less than war-mongers and money grubbers. All of what you say is idiotic.. For the last ten years we’ve had our g’mental noses up Iran’s ass yet we STILL think they have nukes..You can’t bully a Country to NOT have these things any more than you would lay down your nukes because the entire world deemed it. So, what’s the big deal about Paul’s stance? We couldn’t prevent Russia from arming themselves with nukes so what did we do? We covertly kept an eye on them, we did NOT try to run their Country OR antagonize them into a corner.. Paul’s too old? Look back, even recently and you’ll discover that lame excuse is just that.. If your afraid that he’ll croak before his term(s) is over , then make sure that his running mate is as willing to abide by the constitution as he is.. What’s really happening is a ‘reverse’ of the anti-Christ.. These idiots who fear Paul know all too well that if he becomes POTUS that their plans to seat their anti-Christ will go down the drain (or at least delay it for four to eight more years).. His desire to get in the face of the feds is righteous.. SOMEONE needs to do just that.. Cut off their paper money machine and use REAL substances like gold/silver.. Leave the warring to each Country’s own fate while protecting our coasts and the coasts of our allies who ASKS for protection then DON’T pay THEM for this protection but instead make it a barter thing (eg: we protect you with the land and equipment that YOU temporarily donate to us) I’m so tired of hearing that WE’RE spending 200k per soldier per day just to stay in a Country.. 200k? The soldier isn’t getting that so it’s transport, supplied equipment and whatever else we need to put in their leaders coffers for the privilege of protecting THEM. And making friends of our enemies? (ie: enemies of our enemies are our friends regardless as to what they really feel about us) is ludicrous.. As it is, we’ve got ENOUGH friends. Here we are fighting for and protecting Countries that despise and spit on us behind our backs.. THIS is our lot so long as we operate one-dimensional.. As long as we continue to be the super nanny and in the end, our so-called friends will make war upon us (it’s happened throughout history). These political nim-nods are running scared, they envision a new America where they WON’T be able to profit from wars, where the decision (for war) will be sanctioned by congress in consideration of the voters and not big b’ness. I think Ron Paul will have a good chance of winning both the candidacy and the election but not without the help of his own party who has deemed to put losers into the mix.. Not ONE of these so-called front runners has what it takes to win, much less lead the Nation.. Ron Paul is as unique as Obama was when the only alternative was another hawk on war was challenging.. Obama won over, not because he used a golden tongue but because the people was fed up with the way things had been going eight years prior and didn’t want four (or eight) more years of same.. It didn’t work out as we’d hoped (not altogether Obama’s fault as he was being nixed at every junction) The same will be attempted toward Ron Paul (or any other GOP as a dem pay-back) but this time he may over come and actually help our Nation and at the very least, postpone the ant-Christ’s attempt at world domination.. We don’t know when or where this may occur but it won’t begin in this Country and it won’t be on Paul’s watch. View me as a fool if you want, I will understand.. It’s really difficult not to see one as a fool when the entire auditorium is over filled with them. RON PAUL 2012..!!!

  • CJM

    Like Bill Maher, who gives a rats behind what Dick Morris thinks. He has an extremely low opinion of women in politics and thinks the ladies should be available only as long as they can swish their skirts for his pleasure. When Palin was the major topic of the day, Morris chimed in with a vengence, supporting the left wingers in their diatribes against her. Now that Bachman is still in the running, he continues in the same vein, bad-mouthing her at every corner. Morris is afraid of Ron Paul because he knows that both Ron Paul and Michele Bachman are telling the truth and know what they are doing in terms of redirecting this great Nation of ours. Sure wish someone would put a gag in Morris’ mouth; he is so disgusting and out of touch with reality he isn’t worth the air space.

  • gnafu

    For sure, we cannot afford to stay on the present path or there will not be a Democracy in America. Dictatorship is not a nice word but that is what is happening. Personal freedoms are at risk and we are losing them daily with the Obama administration. Over the past 15-20 years, Americans have been demoralized. Next comes “Crisis” and we are nearing that. Dictator wants to tell Foreign countries who they should have for President when the old is tossed out. That is their business and none of ours. We need a leader with intestinal fortitude, follow the Constitution instead of destroying it, end foreign intrusions unless our country is attacked, protect our borders, have a strong national defense and get our financial house in order! Get rid of Federal Reserve!! We have no idea how much money their really is (nor does Congress!) and Federal Reserve promotes Big Government. I believe that if Ron Paul is the next leader of The United States and he surroounds himself with very intelligent administrative people, Ron can bring us back to some kind of normalcy. It isn’t going to happen with more Obamaism.

    Okay, this is good. Have we evolved enough to rise upove fear tactics and declare ourselves sovereigns, or will we accept the worst slavery the world has ever known.

    Individual Declaration of Independence from Tyranny

    Today, we human beings live in a global society made up of many nations, many people, many cultures, and a nearly completely global economic system. Anywhere one might go in the world today, one will find others from other places, other cultures, other countries and speaking other languages, usually in addition to English. We can reach each other via our Internet technology, our communications technology and our high speed air travel technology. Today, there is no longer a clear line between countries, economies, and mutual trade, or even families and friends.

    But there is a clear line forming once again in our experience of all of this greatness of movement and wonders of technology. That clear line is being drawn by tyrants, who, by the positions of their persons in government or banks, see themselves as the holders of all that they can see, and the rulers of all they can agree must be done for their own ends. Nowhere and at no time is their effort to preserve the rights of free people, but is instead aimed at the subjugation of those people and the intimidation of those people, and the imprisonment of those people, and the control of those people, economically and through the devices of government.

    Government of any kind has a single duty if it is to call itself the defender of the people. That duty is to preserve the rights of those people by protecting them from tyranny. When in the course of things such a government can be seen to do the opposite in the name of justice and freedom, then it is necessary to divorce oneself from that government, and to do so without divorcing oneself from the people whom he loves.

    But unlike the days of old, and, even though we as individuals can move from anywhere on the planet Earth to any other place on Earth in a matter of hours, we cannot escape the tyranny that now presents itself as global, and, is determined to make it’s global nature absolute.
    And So,
    Whereas: Tyranny has gained a global reach, and
    Whereas: Economic freedom is not possible in daily life, and
    Whereas: Government has been corrupted by economic rather than principled concerns, and
    Whereas: True representation in a democratic system is no longer possible, and
    Whereas: People, places and things are treated as collateral, and
    Whereas: Rule of Law has been replaced with monopoly power and Corporate dominance, and
    Whereas: People are found guilty before trial by cause of legislation or orders of the corporations, and
    Whereas: People can be detained indefinitely without fair trial in a court of Justice, and
    Whereas: Force is used against persons without cause, to seize, kidnap and steal in the name of the State, Bank, or Corporation, and
    Whereas: People cannot leave the Earth to find a free home,

          Kate — he said “It’s the same racist but different wording .”
          I think he meant if the wording was different it would be racist — but of course the words he’s “hoping” for weren’t there, but if they were there… hmmmm….

Understand this , he wants to the States to trade with themselves , but in reality , China owns over 65% of the worlds mineral rights , how are you doing to do that? Close out Canada ? Are you nuts ?

    Interesting to see which positions the so-called “conservatives” are willing to defend after they’re done criticizing Dr. Paul. War. Government control of private behavior. Government for religious indoctrination. Compromise of the 4th and 5th Amendments. More borrowing and spending. More corporatism. Pretty unappetizing.

  • David

    Ron Paul is a grave threat to the security and safety of this nation. Anyone who is stupid enough to think that Iran doesn’t threaten our national security or says that there is no evidence that they want to build a bomb, and even if they did wouldn’t use them is living in a dream world. I used to think that Ron Paul had a lot of sound ideas, but lately I think he is on the lunatic fringe … or maybe not, he might just be a lunatic. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand the true nature of Iran’s, and Ahmadinejad’s plans; they support all manner of terrorism, WANT world domination by an Islamic Caliphate, WANT to see a world war to usher in the 12th Imam (the Mahdi) and WANT to wipe Israel and the United States off the face of the earth (a nuclear weapon would be a useful for this purpose). They would gladly suffer enormous human loss (including their own) to further their goals. Make no mistake, they are EXTREMELY dangerous and would happily use a nuclear weapon, if they have one, which all sane people know they will soon have. Ron Paul IS NOT someone I want as Commander in Chief, nor do I think any rational person would. Maybe some of you would welcome these events, but anyone that cares about this country.

    How did Dick Morris go from campaigning for Obama’s man Odinga in the 2007 Kenyan presidential race to being a regular guest on right wing talk showes?! Don’t he look like Humpty Dumpty?!
    Call me an Islamophobe but I believe that Islam is not a holy religion but pure evil. While I agree with Ron on just about every other issue, his stance on Islam can only be compared to Neville Chamberlain’s stance on Nazism prior to WWII!

    Ron Paul stated that Isreal has 18 nuclear warheads and can take care of itself. I don’t think Iran wants to mess with a country that can decimate the Iranian population! The great Khan couldn’t do as much damage with his massive army compared to 18 nuclear warheads! The real role of the federal government should actually be a small role compared to the role of the state. The initial compromise of the states when they formed the union was limited federal control and greater state control. Of course this makes sense. You wouldn’t want your neighbors telling you what you should do when you know what is best for yourself.

  • Thinking about

    If Dick Morris would be pushing for Paul, he would be great on this site. I have a problem in beleiving Paul is for less spending when he
    was one of four Republicans who added earmarks in 2011. Maybe I do understand, everybody else should be cutting the spending but don’t ask me to do the same. With Paul’s record in introducing bills which was passed speaks for itself, his agenda will end up the same way his bills has. Reality will have to set in one of these days.

  • Col

    Excuse me. Anyone that thinks it’s OK for Iran to have nukes and believes that they wouldn’t use them on the USA and Israel, is a nutcase of the first degree!!! He is a very scary lunatic. I don’t want senile old man with the authority to push the button that could destroy this entire country. I can’t even imagine him talking to foreign leaders. I have watched and listened to him speak. He presents himself as just short of being totally delusional. Anyone that doesn’t think he is a nutcase is a bigger nutcase!

    • Michael Hardesty

      Col, you are the nutcase swallowing the same lies that both Bushes used to promote both unjustified Iraq massacres.
      Israel has 400-500 nukes, the US Inc. which sponsors Israel has tens of thousands of nukes.
      Iran only wants a nuke so IT won’t be attacked by the cowardly US as Iraq and Libya were. Iran knows it would be destroyed if it STARTED a nuclear war with Israel and thus the US.
      Col, you need serious professional help. Turn off the AM neoconmen hatemongers and read Ron Paul’s books.

    I’m hearing bad news that Dr Ron Paul is only on 21% of the vote so far and Romny and Santori both on 24%. HOPE IT GETS BETTER.

    George Washington’s Farewell Address To the People of the United States:

    http://www.earlyamerica.com/earlyamerica/milestones/farewell/

    full text version of Washington’s Farewell Address.

    1) Extolls the benefits of the federal government: “The unity of government…is a main pillar in the edifice of your real independence…of your tranquility at home, your peace abroad; of your safety; of your prosperity; of that very liberty which you so highly prize.”
    2) Warns against the political party system: “It serves to distract the Public Councils, and enfeeble the Public Administration….agitates the Community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms; kindles the animosity of one….against another….it opens the door to foreign influence and corruption…thus the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy and will of another.”

    3) Stresses the importance of religion and morality: “Where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths, which are the instruments of investigation in Courts of Justice?”
    4) On stable public credit (Debt): “…cherish public credit. One method of preserving it is to use it as sparingly as possible…avoiding likewise the accumulation of debt….it is essential that you…bear in mind, that towards the payments of debts there must be Revenue, that to have Revenue there must be taxes; that no taxes can be devised, which are not…inconvenient and unpleasant…”

    5) Warns against permanent foreign alliances: “It is our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world…”

    6) On an overly-powerful military establishment: “…avoid the necessity of those overgrown military establishments, which, under any form of government, are inauspicious to liberty, and which are to be regarded as particularly hostile to Republican Liberty.”

    Sounds an awful lot like that crackpot Ron Paul.

  • tim

    Ron Paul knows that if we had left the middle east alone that we would not be having problems with them and we would have lower oil prices. We have too many people in washington who want to stick thier nose in everyone elses business. Starting with hilary clinton and the united nations!!!! We need to protect the united states and the united states alone. We do not need to be the worlds babysitters, just like we don’t need the federal gov’t babysitting us and making new laws for the states everyday. Too many busybodies in this country that can’t leave well enough alone!!!!!

  • Cooper

    The bigger the lie…

  • Michael Hardesty

    Paul’s third place showing is fine, it keeps him in the race.

    • libertytrain

      I think it could almost be considered a 3 way tie given the very few percentage points separating the first two from Ron Paul.

  • Thomas A. Wathen Jr.

    Mr. Paul is toast, His isolationist ideas are a thing of the past. Didn’t we learn anything from 9/11?! We can’t just build a big wall around the US and watch the rest of the world go to hell and think that some how we’re not going to get drug along. This isn’t the ninteenth century any more. I hear ya Col! Hey Micheal, don’t you have something to go occupy, like your parent’s basement?!!
    Back to Dick, I don’t trust him. I think he’s Hillary’s mole. He misses getting spanked by Janet Reno and Madeline Albright.

    • Michael Hardesty

      Haven’t you learned anything from the failure of WW1 which the Bolsheviks, Hitler, unsavory little states in Europe, the Versailles Treaty and WW2 ?
      WW2 produced a Communist takeover of Eastern Europe and China.
      Korea produced Vietnam.
      Vietnam produced the Communist 60s generation.
      Israel First policy produced two Iraq wars at a cost of 5 TRILLION
      and the Afghanistan fiasco.
      9-11 was produced by our Israel First policy AND support of Arab Reaction like Saudi Arabia.
      Thomas, your not a smart guy at all.
      My pity for you.

      • Michael Hardesty

        In my first sentence in response to Thomas’s imbecilic remarks I left out the word ‘produced’ after ‘which.’

    • http://www.RonPaul2012.com Diogenes

      There is a big difference between isolationism and non-interventionism.

      Isolationism discourages travel and trade with other nations. North Korea is a good example.

      Non-interventionism avoids war unless under direct threat or attack. Examples would be Canada or Sweden.

  • Derek

    To all who hate or fear Ron Paul because of his thoughts on the drug war I ask you to please read this article with an open mind, and maybe consider the possibility that it could work here too.

  • Brogan

    What are Mr. Pails opinion on Regans dubbed star wars missle defense program

  • Henry

    dick morris is an insignificant coward! morris fears Ron Paul because Paul will not go to war with iran to protect Israel. When I see Morris on any channel I will change channels.

    • Doubtom

      As Henry says, Morris’ attack on Ron Paul has a lot more to do with Paul’s unwillingness to unconditionally support his favorite nation of Israel than anything else. Morris is all for wars, especially those fought in the interest of Israel, but is too much of a coward to ever don the uniform himself,,, if you could find one that would fit his fat azz

  • Brad

    Morris is nothing more then a $$$ grubbing CLOWN.
    A Clintonesta turn coat, now part of the Republican machine.
    How ANYONE listens to this moron is BEYOND ME

    Is there ANYONE out there who has been more DEAD WRONG in his predictions??
    First it was Hillary being the sure fire Democrats choice (even wrote a full book on that). Then he goes on one Faux news show after another to make more predictions, and BOMBS OUT on them all.
    If you want to make a fortune, just see what this moron is picking, and GO THE OTHER WAY!

    For all the dirt this guy throws toward Paul, someone should counter back on this moron. This guy was was hard core into prostitutes and strippers, while living the life in the message parlor of the Clitonestas. You don’t need to research much to get all his foot fetish stories, and lots more dirt.

  • http://www.TomBlairEA.com Thomas Avery Blair

    I have dropped Morris’s website from all my computers.

    In my view of the US economy it is seriously ill, gets a little better, and then relapses, time and again. It is suffering primarily from too much government and too many government regulations. This “stifling” of the American “free-enterprise-with-a-social-conscience-system” needs some really strong medicine that the establishment “which? and switch?” doctors have -0- chance of healing. They are part of the problem but not a part of the viable solution, at least not anymore. They are no longer trusted to do anything but support the “status quo” and defeat the U.S. Constitution as the rule of law it deserves to be.

    Dr. Ron Paul is not Jesus Christ, he is a human being capable of learning and changing his mind with study and experience, and I can see only him in the White House if our nation is to be healed of its’ unConstitutional “disease” of the faith and fabric of our society and nation.

    Show me a Republican or other sound-thinking Americans who are afraid of the U.S. Constitution, and I will show you either a “RINO” or a misinformed American (and maybe both). While I may not agree 100% with everything Dr. Paul has done or said, he still represents the only hope I can find to put America back onto a track where ambition and hard-work can lead to a better life for those ready, willing and able to work for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I do not see that substantial opportunity in any other candidate for President in the coming November 2012 elections.

    If the main stream Republican Party chooses someone else than Dr. Ron Paul, then it will be they who hand our nation another 4 years of Obama, not Mr. Paul. I am preparing to support Dr. Ron Paul as a third party candidate if the mainstream Republicans sidestep his candidacy for the Republican nominee for President. I suspect millions of other thinking Americans are thinking as I do, but I don’t speak for them, I only speak from my own mind, heart and soul.

    God help Dr. Paul to become our next President and in doing so may God also continue to help and bless America.

    • http://www.RonPaul2012.com Diogenes

      Amen and Amen.

      I deleted Newsmax and Morris as well. He clearly has an agenda in which I am not interested.

  • loriwy

    I’ve been undecided through this whole mess. Seems like all the of them have something I like. I do want a strong President that other countries respect (fear if you will) but I’m tired of the warmongers. Israel in relationship of being surrounded by enemies bothers me. Never could understand why the U.S. feels they could dictate their policy. Support them, but let them dictate their own policies. Iran deserves watching yes, but not invasion. Israel has kept them from going nuclear before. Why is it different now? The Patriot Act has always bothered me,now we have the NDAA that has me scared of my own government. Haven’t heard any of the canidates address this other than Ron Paul.I worry about Israel, but I worry more about my country.

  • http://mpurrnell.HeartlandRealtyServices.com Mike

    If you do not understand the statist issues and corporatism that accompanies it you are 2 ignorant to vote in the 2012 election intelligently.

  • http://www.RonPaul2012.com Diogenes

    For those concerned about Ron Paul’s plans to stop the federal government legislating drug policy:

    If federal laws against drugs are removed, state laws will still apply. How many people do you know who will run out and start using drugs just because the federal laws are gone without changes in state laws? Did you know that the repeal of the prohibition on alcohol resulted in reduced rates of drinking?

    The main effect of dropping federal drug laws would be that the federal government would stop interfering with states’ medical marijuana laws. As a physician, Ron Paul resents the government telling him he cannot prescribe a natural plant that has been used medicinally for thousands of years.

  • Jerry

    Dick Morris is a very strange being…a Roswell NM kind of guy.One can just look at Morris and see that he dosn`t care much for himself,so!how could he care for anyone else?Same for Cristy,and that guy on the “Five”the very fat one.

  • Ernie Contri

    A message to everyone: Our country is in one hell of a mess.
    Why talk about Drugs, Gay Marriage, Marijuana and prostitution
    When the Country has bigger,and more Importment troubles to worry about. We are In debt for over 15 Thrilon Dollars. Most Americans don’t know, but should know that every Dollar the Goverment spends to run the Country, such as Security, Salaries, Pensions, and to help other countries, corparations, banks and many other bailouts, with billions of borrowed dollars from the Fedreal Reserve. We have no backup money. what a laugh! A big country like ours being under the thumb of the Federal Reserve. that has no connection with the U. S. Goverment, and Onwed by rich bankers, Who Have the right to print money out of the clear blue sky, and lend It to U.S. with Intrest. What’s wrong with everbody? We should be talking about getting rid of the Federal Reserve, And getting out of debt. Oncs the Country gets out of debt and back on It’s feet, the Country and the dollar would be stronger, get out of inflation, create more jobs. We should be concerned about getting the prices of Oil and Gasoline down so the people would have more money to spend on other things, which would help the economy.We have a bigger problem In 2012. We thought that we would get rid of Bush and replace him with Barack Oboma, but the American people made a big mistake. I hope they don’t make the same mistake again. They should think hard and think strong. If they make the same mistake, and vote for the wrong man again they could kiss their Country and themselves goodby. I would like to make a point and bring to your attention that Romeny and Gingrich receive millions of dollars from large corparations for their campaign. when you receive money from large corparations you have to give back favors Ron Paul is right, let the states take care of those. Being President takes on the responsabilty of the whole Country.

  • Doubtom

    Why anyone with a grain of sense would bother to listen to that fat tub of lard, Morris, is beyond me. What the hell has this guy ever accomplished that anyone should listen to his BS? I guess you have to be a right-wing wacko to appreciate him.

  • http://None Mike C

    I like Ron Paul but returning to the gold standard is a huge mistake. Look at the vastness of wealth in this country. Most of that is due to what Nixon did. Smartest play ever, Nixon is a hero and should get more credit. We make something out of nothing and the only downside is a little inflation? Sign me up!
