In my book, Ron Paul gets a mixed vote. But much of what he says is very important for this country's future.

here is his final speech to the house.....

Mixed vote for sure.

Why do we suck at sorting out the great ideas that a man has from his nutjob ideas and stuffing everyone in a party shoebox?

Ron Paul won the Republican nomination for POTUS over Romney by a landslide.

Mysteriously after counting the votes Romney wins .......

That was an outstanding summation of where we are at and where we are headed to. This should be required viewing of every registered voter there is.

I don't agree with Ron Paul on everything but give him major respect and kudos for getting some critical issues right that the other pussy politicians are too chicken to even mention

Peace

A person who believes in almost NO GOVERNMENT is likely to agree on some points with everyone who dislikes something about government.

Not that impressed.

Financial Armageddon? Pfft, not us, can't happen. Right? Just keep borrowing and borrowing, letting our trade imbalances occur...nothing to worry over.

Besides, Ron Paul has a merkin for an eyebrow.

Too bad he ran on the GOP ticket. Very little diferance between the Dems and Repubs. Both are too busy filling their pockets with special interest money and not listening to the interests of the people.

When are we finally going to say enough is enough and stop this nonsense?
As Edward Abbey said, "A patriot is one who is willing to stand up to his government in order to save his country". Or something to that effect. It's time to save our country.

Bump for recognition!

That is one informed and wise man.

I watched the whole video, as I felt is was historically important to listen to what he has to say.

30 years with his eyes open trying to do something. But noone would listen.

Where's your Virtue?

Yep!

This should be required viewing for everyone.

A man who clearly knows what the hell is going on. And see's what direction we are heading.

I could never vote for him for president. His Libertarian ideals are often absurd--and inconsistent. Replacing environmental laws, including the clean air act--with nuisance laws--would be an unmitigated disaster.



BUT: I am glad he was in Congress because he provided a different and much-need voice on several issues, when few others were speaking out.

You retarded "Dirtbag"- So you would never vote for Ron Paul, but you would vote for Obama? However at the same time, you were happy he was in congress to bring up important issues that others would not? Are you F-N crazy or retarded? Obviously Paul's logic and leadership approach is 100% different than your boy Obama. So which is it? Are you more concerned about environmental issues or are you more concerned about the direction our country is headed (Debt with no plan of resolving, force-placed health insurance, increase the taxes of the wealthy which you know will do NOTHING to pay down the national debt)? The tax hikes will simply be there to ensure the federal government can meet its annual budgetary needs which in 2012 is $3.79 trillion, when the requested revenue is only $2.6 trillion, resulting in a $1,100,000,000,000 (trillion) dollar deficit. If we are deficit spending to meet our annual obligations, then how does the principle balance of the US Debt get paid down, as we are currently borrowing to pay % owed on $16 Trillion national debt (apprx $400 billion in % 2011). Please explain your thought process as to how this debt will be handled or do you believe we should just disregard and keep on spending? Have you heard the term deficit spending and if so do you agree with it you dumb sh*t? If you have a $100 in your bank account, but you owe $200 in expenses, how do you pay for it? You could borrow or steal (increase taxes) to hopefully meet the budget needs. Or... you could start cutting spending and more effectively managing a budget with the current anticipated revenues. Which route would actually be dealing with a budget shortfall issue and not just prolonging the inevitable point of no return?

You may be opposed to his views, however he would NEVER force his view on you. One of Paul's main objectives was to ensure Individual and State rights (adhering to the US Consititution, Bill of Rights) to choose what is best for that states people. If you don't like what that state has to offer (pro-abortion, legalized marijuana, etc...), then you could opt to move to a different state that is closer to your views. Actually, just get the hell out of the US, as your moronic opinions will do society no good.

Eitherway, go enjoy your clean air that only Obama can provide (please understand the sarcasm) as he is obviously your lord and savior. Just be sure to keep your income low, so you dont have to pay more in taxes and can eventually collect welfare from my increased Tax. Freakin Dirtbag- (Please respond so I can further attack your thought process).

Wait, I thought Ron Paul wanted to sell off all the public land?

Where would we go climbing then?

Luna,

A little harsh yet to the point.

So many actually believe that through regulation our environment will get better. That if we vote in so-called progressives things will change.

Yet, they fail to relize it is their own efforts that will bring real change.

That is the Virtue, that Dr. Paul speaks of. Our populous has become lost, and put's far too much faith in the gov't.

People ignore the steady march towards Facism.

Makes me sick really, that there are truely so many clueless individuals out there.

People actually believe a welfare state is a good thing, that bailing out the rich is acceptable. That's right you lefties, Obama aint done sh#t to the banking.

Not to mention, Pauls thoughts and words towards our military intervention and the blow back we will see.

We are in a system where they preach security, and crack down on the rights of the civilians, all the while creating global conflicts that are only in the interest of the corporations/banks.

He has warned us, now we sit back and watch as we get what we deserve for being lazy cry babies that want momma's milk. Instead of growing up and feeding ourselves.
