Ron Paul’s Message to Barack Obama

“Change” means nothing. It’s just a word, and it’s a cliché. If you just repeat it it has no meaning. You have to say, what are you going to change, and I would argue, you offer no change. You have the same foreign policy, you want more troops in Afghanistan, you’re not talking about only going to war with a declaration, you don’t want to deal with the monetary/financial crisis in this country, you want to keep the system together for the benefit of the banks and the big corporations and the politicians. What kind of change you have on social policy? Do you care about sick people using using Marijuana, have you come out for that? […] [Obama] doesn’t want change, he wants the status quo. […] If you want change, what you need is someone who’s going to make sure you’re never going to have a draft, and we’re going to bring our troops home, we’re going to balance the budget, we’re going have sound money… [Obama] never talks about any of that.

Watch the full speech here.

  • Paul V

    is does not change the fact,, No one going to vote for Barack come on you guys can do way better than that,,,
    What makes you people more upset, Hillary voter having the last word,
    Or Knowing the truth about Barack Obama Why don’t you start Rioting now,, instead of complaining about blogs, or forcing your views,,,
    I have not heard no one ever come back, and said Obama does has a agenda, this is what it is,, He has Hillary agenda that he is tweaking, to call his own, He does have criminals that work for him,
    Why don’t someone tell me on here,, why they agree with Obama when he said on the new,that He wished that gas prices go higher, but just no so soon, Or how he is going to help the economy and keep people in there home, but Yet, He had Jim Johnson on his campaign, who was involved with the Country Wide Loan Scandal,, that is why he quit, Anyone of you can tell me that give me you best defense for barack I love hearing all your excuses, because when it happens again and again, you lose more credibility

  • Paul V,
    I’d like you to meet my friend, his name is Proof Reading. Try it out once in a while.
    I like to blog quickly just like the next person, but when I have my thoughts down, I typically re-read what I’ve written so that when people respond to my thoughts, they can respond intelligently to the substance of my writing and not the writing itself. You see, most people discredit peoples’ ideas if they aren’t presented in a relatively intelligent manner, as yours aren’t. You mess up tenses, plurals, capitalization, and then call those who would disagree with you “morons”? What gives you the right to insult anyone else’s intelligence or integrity when you aren’t even willing to go through your own thoughts and proofread them for literary quality? Why should anyone listen to what you have to say about American politics when you aren’t even willing to show us that you have a mastery (or even a high-school equivalent) of the English language?
    Awaiting your justification of how you understand American politics and the secret goings-on of American politicians but not the language they speak,
    T. Paul V.

  • Obama is a LIAR

    Obama should change his slogan to:

    “OBAMA – Lies we can believe in.”

    Ron Paul is the man of the decade if not the century. He would crush Obama in a debate if given the chance to do so, but the mainstream media will continue to ignore and ridicule him. Fortunately many people are waking up.


  • Paul V

    Obama is just a plain and simple liar, what he is saying what he going to do he going to make it worse, Barack will distroy the country. Just like him being on the new a few weeks ago. saying about the gas prices, HE SAID I WILL QUOTE I WISH GAS PRICES EVEN GO HIGER JUST NOT SO SOON, Then he talks about how he trying to keep people in there home, trying to get a agenda about the housing issues,,, but never the less, Jim Johnson who just quit was involved in the Country wide, loan scandal. what does Obama say,, I can not keep track of everyone on his campaign, If he can’t then he can’t run this country,, Every debate, he just agree with everyone never had a original ideal, Even the media is slowly catching on,, Obama is catering to the simple minded like your self, hoping no one catchs on,, there reporter in the news still asking people what does Obama stand for no one has a clue, Look after all this time, yet your going to blindly compare, between Hillary and Him,, Even McCain has a better agenda not much of one,, but guess what all mccain wants to do is keep the war going,, He can not start another war,, the let bush do that ,, it will not happen a second time around, so thing about it

  • To: Paul V

    What will obama do that is so different from hillary and mccain, that it will destroy the country?
    I can’t believe this country is not listening to Ron Paul. The mainstream media does not cover the real candidates that are running to make actual changes, not politics.

  • Bob Munro

    Pleas sign my online petition to Ron Paul for him to support Bob Barr for President at

  • Paul V

    I told you try Ebonics,,, this is not out of spite, Barack Obama is not our Candidate,,, Just like Hillary was not yours,, Get over it. what is done is done,, what the Obama supporters did what Hillary supporters are doing,, doesn’t matter does it, Obama supporter got to quit with the double standards,,, Got to think got to think,,, forcing Hillary Voter not going to do it,, it is what it is,, If the Obama supporter would of said at the beginning,,,if Obama loses they will back Hillary did not happen, what was said on the new,, now you can see it anywhere on the internet, news station or YOUTUBE they said if Obama does not win the primary,, Obama supporter will vote for McCain,, FACT plain Fact, you need to live with that, ,, but if there a choice who is better,, Obama or McCain well me and 15 million Hillary voter are going to vote for McCain,, its our rights to vote for who we think is better. Obama will distroy this country.
    Worse than bush,,,, Fact,, Hillar lost we got over it, Now its about saving this country from Barack Obama

  • To: Paul V

    Okay, so there are some dumb Obama supporters, but you are their hillary counterpart. You are talking about putting up with McCain just out of spite. If you say that Obama has same agenda as hillary, then there is no reason to not vote for him. BTW, Hillary knew michigan and florida wouldn’t count. At the beginning she acknowledged this fact, but later decided to change her mind when she realized that they need those states to win. Her campaign was losing money, but she decided to waste money campaigning in florida anyways. All the candidates decided together not to campaign in michigan, but she broke that pact. I am sure if others campaigned in michigan, they could’ve gotten some more delegates. Don’t spin the truth. Take the information provided by the media and discover the truth, not convey what they say.

    And the whole rev. Wright’s issue: Obama has no control of what comes out of reverend wright’s mouth. I am sure everyone doesn’t agree with their ministers. PLEASE, just think for yourself after gather the facts. Don’t ramble on and on about what abc and cnn say.

  • To: Anyone voting republican

    We all live in the same world. When you think of deaths, don’t think of American deaths, think of the whole world. How many innocent people have died in this war? Do you really think its fair to avenge the death of 3000 with death of 80,000? (That is if you believe there are ties between Iraq and Al-Qaeda.) The reason countries won’t accept aid from us is because we can’t get the hell out once we’re done with what we are supposed to. Right now, we need a president who will improve foreign relations so countries won’t be scared of us. All this talk about suspending habeas corpus is the worst thing to do. Like the guy before me said, this sounds a lot like Hitler. We are not Christian state, this country was founded on religious freedom and it should stay that way. People voting for a candidate because “He is a strong Christian” is the stupidest reason because they are not going to open a church for you, or have bible study in the white house.
    We all know voting for anyone besides Obama or Mccain is throwing your vote away, so don’t bother wasting your time. But if you are a Hillary supporter and are voting for Mccain because of spite, then you should also stay home, then you are just as dumb as the idiotic raiding voters in open primaries.

  • Also, it is spelled “Halle Barry”. Not “Haley”. OJ Simpson has nothing to do with this election. Kobe Bryant doesn’t spell his name with a “C” and also has nothing to do with this discussion.
    I applaud your attempts at shifting the scope of the discussion away from matters of actual importance toward past matters of American judicial incompetence. Sadly, though, these things have nothing to do with our current election.
    Stay focused on the principles at hand, and people will take your thoughts more seriously. Play the distraction card, as the media so often does, and people will ignore you.

    Today’s lesson was sponsored by the letter “Y”, the number “08” and the blood and sweat of all those soldiers who are dying needlessly in the Middle East.

    P.S. Hitler was a Christian who supported the idea of overwhelming patriotism and strong Christian domestic values. Do these values sound anything like those of a particular president we currently have or any Republican candidates who are running against Obama?

    • Adam

      Hitler was not a christian although he postured as such for the benefit of the Catholic church in Europe. He believed in Nietzsche and Darwin and the result was eugenics and attempted genocide which is a logical outcome of an atheistic world view (two other leaders who have adopted atheistic world views were Mao and Stalin). Just because Hitler claimed to be a christian in Mein Kampf does not make him one, his world view should be examined in the light of his actions.

  • Paul –
    Your grammar and punctuation are atrocious. For you to use three commas instead of an ellipsis is amazing, and your capitalization is in dire need of improvement.
    Further, McCain is a crazy person. He, on his own web page, insinuates that Obama’s desire to “unconditionally meet with anti-American foreign leaders” is a quality of a bad leader. But let us not forget past American presidents who have done so, and how those actions benefited not only our own nation, but the entire world. First, Richard Nixon. During his time as president, he met with the leaders of Soviet Russia and communist China, around 1972. Has opening up communications with either of these regimes hurt us? No, they haven’t. Second, Ronald Reagan. Had Reagan not met with Chancellor Kohn in the 1980s, Berlin and Germany might still be divided by that annoying wall that Reagan demanded be torn down. Clinton met with the leaders of Palestine and Israel in an attempt to foster better relations. I think it is clear that at least the leaders of communist China, East Berlin and Soviet Russia were anti-American at some point, so what is McCain saying? Does he not think highly of two of the Republican party’s greatest accomplishments of the last 50 years? Or is he so deeply involved with the American war machine that he’s willing to ignore these fantastic achievements of our past presidents so that he won’t risk having to be on peaceful terms with Iran, thus allowing our military to attack another nation, thereby filling the pockets of all those corporate giants who profit from our militaristic endeavors?
    Why would you ever, EVER stop backing a democrat in favor of a fear-mongering war-lover who admits he knows nothing about the economy, wants to stay in Iraq, and is known for having an explosive temper?
    Never mind, don’t answer that. You clearly have well-thought-out opinions and an objective stance from which you are observing the current political climate.
    I don’t think Obama’s the answer either, but I can at least admit that he’s a MUCH MUCH better option than flip-flopper McCain.

    BTW, did you know that George W. Bush is a 3rd generation war profiteer, and the grandson of Prescott Bush, who was not only a Nazi sympathizer (along with Walt Disney and Henry Ford), but also earned much of the Bush family’s current fortune through Hitler’s Nazi regime? Look it up, it’s true! [Thus is the myth of the “liberal media” debunked.]

  • Paul V

    Na abro
    There a classic old saying, A Mind is a terrible thing to Waste!!!!
    First of all Obama has not agenda, he has no agenda,, LOOK at every debate,,, All he ever does is agree with Hillary, on all here issues and try to make it better,, Media already said his Health plan is worse than Hillary,, Obama does one thing good,, that is speak he a good narrator, Everyone reporting how he needs to get it together, he has nothing on the table, But people like you Need that I guess,,, and as soon as, HE screws the country up, you will not be there to take responsible,
    I only vote democratic all my life, I always said it who would be better,, Does not matter, if democrat or republican,, who is best I will vote for him,, in this case,,, Obama will make this country worse, than bush, that is a fact, people like you will blindly vote for Obama because he makes you feel good, I guess if Hitler was A democrat your going to voter for him HHHHHHMMMMMMMM.
    So tell me did you think OJ was indeed Innocent ,,, Did you really thing coby bryant did not rape that girl, do you really thing, Haley Berry does not remember Hit and running that person in Los Angeles, she cracked her head open and got 20 stitch’s on here forhead, Yet she does not have a scare at all,, not even traces of a scare,, Just sound like more double standards,

  • Democrat

    Paul V, I’m sure you know that how the system works. After you fairly lose in the primaries, the party unites to help their candidate reach the office. Hillary and Obama may have different means of accomplishing things, but they have the same goal/agenda. If you vote for McCain, that means you aren’t voting because of policies, you’re voting out of spite and are just being a sore loser. BTW, I voted for hillary in the primaries, but am totally against Hillary supporters voting for Mccain. Like the guy 2 posts before me said, I just don’t like wars and hate to see civilians and troops die for oil.

  • na abro

    Paul V, good riddance and enjoy your stay in the Republican party. You narrow minded hillary-cultists deserve the punishment you’ll get from electing mccain into office to continue the crusade against the constitution.

    obama, hillary, their policies are nearly lockstep with each other so for anyone to claim they would support hillary but not obama or vice versa is nonsense and is only an example of stupidity and pigheadedness…you are willing to cut off your nose to spite your face.

    ron paul, kucinich, gravel, these were the real “change” effectors and as usual they got about as far as one would expect in a contest which is set-up to prefer those who will maintain the status quo.

  • To: Paul V

    I am a hillary supporter, but i WILL be voting for Barack Obama. The reason is simple, I don’t want a warmonger in the office. I support sending more troops to afghanistan because that war is for a just cause. Voting for McCain just mean another 100 thousand have to die. In NH a crowd member asked McCain about a Bush statement that troops could stay in Iraq for 50 years.

    “Maybe 100,” McCain replied. “As long as Americans are not being injured or harmed or wounded or killed, it’s fine with me and I hope it would be fine with you if we maintain a presence in a very volatile part of the world where al Qaeda is training, recruiting, equipping and motivating people every single day.”

    I don’t know about you, but i have a strong feeling that Iraqis will stop attacking us if we just get the hell out of there.

    • MFR

      You don’t want a war-monger in office, yet that’s what you got. Good job on doing your homework.

  • Anonymous

    To Besen: We didn’t think Ron Paul was going to win either, but we supported him. I’m going to likely be voting for Bob Barr (once I complete more research) and hope that amongst the front runners, we at least have a President that doesn’t have senior moments or retard tongue-slips. Even that is an improvement to today.

  • Oliver

    There is Charles Baldwin of the Constitutional party that represents closest to the message Ron Paul has set forth. I will be voting for him… far closer than Obama.

  • Besen

    Ron Paul’s supporters have a choice to make now, give your vote to Bob Barr who in reality has no chance of winning, vote for McCain the guy at the head of the party that just slapped Paul’s supporters in the face or vote for Obama who at least will be on the right side of the civil liberties issues.
    At least Obama taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago for 10 years, has vowed to review all of Bush’s signing statements and has publicly stated that he wants to end the war in Iraq.
    Anyone who says he or she is not going to vote is really not a supporter of the principles that Dr. Paul stands for.

    • we the people

      same goes for you take a hike and a hint.

      this is not the support for Hillary campaign site. or obama cult worship site. this for those of us who are in the business of restoring the constitution. nothing more nothing less. i don’t give a damn about who’s a republican or a democrat. i definitely don’t give a damn about these rotten politicians who send assholes like you here to obscure the real problem. and that is that they are walking allover the constitution and that’s that. so please go elsewhere with your babel unless you hear to defend the republic and the constitution

  • to paul v

    Hillary is the definition of status quo, and Hillary supporters are the definition of bitter.

    Hillary is over.

  • Paul V

    I voted Hilary Clinton, and only support Hilary Clinton, No matter what Hilary Does suspend her campaign concede her campaign. No matter what Hilary does she could even support Obama and campaign for Obama I will never Vote for Barack Obama, I do think America is ready for a black president, just not Barack Obama,,, The way The Democratic party handle this election with the Corporate Media propaganda the whole election, Turned this election upside down,, Obama could of ran over someone,, like Haley Berry, No one would care and still vote,, Obama..
    There several million Voter right now like my self, will not ever vote for Barack Obama, Many like my self will be Voting for McCain, my reason is simple,, the Obama voter came on CNN & MSNBC and said if obama does not win the primary, Obama supporter will vote for McCain, Democratic party did not do anything to the obama camp to stop ,, why is obama party splitting the party in half, Now pelosi and many other are blaming Hilary and kept on with the propaganda Corporate Media, Obama Said on the new so many time,, does not Matter, if your Democrat or Republican,, you want the right person for the right Job,, He is so right,,when He said that we wanted Hilary,, Well Congrats to Obama his supporter got him to the primary,,,but He will never win the election,, for President, I will not stop with my blogging,, who is the best man for the job between Barack & McCain,, will vote for McCain he will be way better than Barack Obama, I can put up for McCain for 4 years and Hilary Can run again, Pelosi and the rest of the democrat party,, days are number at this point, For pushing Hilary out and ruining her Career, Even now During Clinton Exit speech,, Democratic party Told Hilary if she does not back there little puppet Barack Obama they will ruin her career,, In my opinion They all ready Ruined Hilary Clinton Career, Right Now I am going listen to one thing Barack Obama said, and that is, like I said, it does not matter if your Democrat or republican who is the right person for the job,,,, Hillary supporter need to stick together, Vote for McCain or just not vote for we need the right person,,, Hilary is up on stage right now saying what pelosi and the democratic party are telling her what to do,, or Economy is down and the way the propaganda Media is,, we are turning into a 3rd world country,, by rigging the election thru the media, Hilary Supporter who really want Hilary to be president Need to vote for McCain or just not Vote for Barack Obama, let McCain win,, there nothing more he can do as president, Congress will not let him it Congress who controls everything,, not the president, Pelosi and the a lot of the democratic party ruined Hilary Career, If all Hilary Voter, stick together, than We can restore Hilary Career and make her President, in 4 years. if you vote for Obama we have to wait maybe 8 years or 4 years and republican will be office, if Obama wins the presidency he will only be 4 year term,,, I say give all your supporter not to the democratic party, but to Hilary Clinton.. democratic party needs all of them need to leave office and get fresh people in there, who can unite the party not keep it separated and force unity, to who they want not who the voter want,, Hilary would of won this election, DNC screwed her with Florida and Michigan if those vote were counted at the beginning she would of won this race along time ago..and for the sexist Media, Like CNN & MSNBC… will continue to not report the new but Make it up as they see fit, All Hilary supporter need to unit together.. and stick together,, Margaret Thatcher was prime Minister 30 years ago,, but American Men and New Bias, is keeping woman down for personal gain, Like Keith Oberman, & Chris Mathews Who are the biggest Sexist on this MSNBC stations
