    Adam said that there already was a Constitution party, I thought that was so. Doesn't Ron Paul like it? Has he answered this question already?

      Congressman Paul does support the Constitution party but he's explained during his last run that 3rd party candidates have many more obstacles to overcome when running for president and they don't get any debate time on the networks with the regular two party candidates so that pretty much counts the 3rd parties out. This was his stance in the previous campaign and that may possibly change in 2012 depending on we the people. If there is enough of us that are saying we are going to do everything we can to work for Dr. Paul's campaign should he run under a 3rd party or whatever party then he may entertain a different idea. We can only hope he runs again and I'll be voting for him no matter what the party affiliation is. He is my President.

    Yes, of course RP should run for President in 2012. No question in my mind. His voting record is impeccable--and one of only 2 or 3 people who consistently adhere to the Constitution in their votes. Ron Paul's words reflect what he believes and how he votes. He is consistent because he is principled. Enough said! But I'll relish it with: He's a rare sane and intelligent gem in a sea of insane intelligence turned upside down and inside out in order to deceive.

    2012 needs Ron Paul's Truth, Intellectual Honesty and Integrity!

    Whether he runs on a Republican or Independent ticket is a question well worth pondering. Loyalty, I believe is an honorable quality and his manner in handling the deplorable treatment he received from republicans only added to my admiration for his fortitude in a world where integrity is often diminished by advantage. In Ron Paul's case, if he ran as an Independent, as current voter thinking is, it's not unthinkable (as in past elections) in 2012 for RP to win as an Independent. I don't believe anything but the 2 major parties and an Independent 3rd Party ticket would have a chance though. It is well worth pondering based on the realities and his own "thinking" as to party affiliation. It's his adherence to the Constitution that matters to me and his stance on how to send the armed forces into harm's way and his economic sense; and, it certainly would be nice to see a "statesman" in the presidential office--we certainly haven't seen that commendable behavior for many a year!

    James said: "We must return to the strict interpretation of the Constitution."

    Know it is Ron Paul who we are backing and who he chooses to run with him.
    I heartily suggest he start his own party, the Constitutionalist Party.
    Fixing the corrupted Democrat or Republican parties is more wasted time.
    Audit the Fed, get back to a money system that is based on tangible assets, put a stop to what the pharmacy industry is doing to us. Basically we need a smaller less intrusive government.

    A "strict Libertarian will turn off (and did) many Christians who do not agree with the Libertarian Party's views on many moral issues. The idea that we should be "free to do anything we want" is not constitutional. Rather, we should be free to do what we ought. There is a huge difference. I think it is a little early for a decision on this. We must run someone (both Pres. and Vice-Pres.) who can get Hussein Obama out of office. We need to work to prevent an amnesty which will sell this country out to the Dems. The illegal aliens do not know or understand anything about freedom.

      The government shouldn't be governing morals. What you believe is moral and immoral is very different from what your neighbor might believe is moral. Many christians have different beliefs in what they think is moral and not as well depending on what sect you are a member of. You go to church or what have you to learn and be guided to practice your morals not to the federal government.

      Yes the government should protect your rights and be working to protect your person but not protecting your morals. Have we forgotten a founding fathers moment? Separation of church and state?

        Mildearth: The founding fathers acknowledged that their experiment in self-government could not work without a moral electorate. The lack of a moral electorate is why we have so many problems today and have to pass so many silly laws. Things that were taken for granted years ago because of accepted morality now need to be codified in statutes. What a sad situation we are in! Have you not seen the brutal gang rape of a California teenager while 20 to 30 students stood and watched and did nothing about it. Is it OK for people to stand by and watch because that is OK with their morals? Is it OK if they don't report it because it is OK with their morals? If things continue like they are in this country we will become a scorched earth of immorality and certainly not a "Mildearth" like your name!

        I choose to support MORAL candidates. You can support the scum if you want! However, don't you realize that the need for auditing the Fed. is because of the moral problem of greed? The founding fathers wanted separation of church and state but NOT separation of church from state!!!!!! Don't you see the difference?

          If you think about it then you can see that rape is a crime that is against the law. They are attacking another person and making that person due against her will. That is against the law and surely immoral but can we kill off or stop all the evil in the world? And it is wrong for people to stand by and watch and not do anything but then was it me that was there? I live in a city that is not far from D.C. and I've had to jump in and break up fights where people were down and getting their heads kicked in by ignorant folks that think it's okay to kick someone while they're down. Sure there are people in this world that don't act right but I bet some of them grew up in homes that were christian families and still they go out and do wrong.

          Auditing the Fed has nothing to do with morals. Sure it has to do with greed but it has more to do with the wrongs they have possibly committed against the people and possibly against the law.

          I will repeat my question. Who's morals shall we start with when we start to decide that morality is law and when do we decide that enough is enough? And what stance is wrong of the libertarian party for the sake of moral correctness in your eyes?

          Here is a quote for you from Madison, "practical distinction between Religion and Civil Government is essential to the purity of both, and as guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States."

          And I support Congressman Paul and I consider him to be the most moral and honest person in all of politics.

            - Hmmmm?... "Auditing the Fed has nothing to do with morals." When someone deliberately rob the people out of their money, Mildearth, and have done so for the better part of a century, that has nothing to do with morality? Sounds to me like you have a problem man!
            - As for principles of morality, the Ten Commandments would work perfectly as a foundation... if "Thou shalt have no other gods before me." was scrapped together with the rest of all the "praise the lord" mumbo juumbo.
            In fact, Mildearth, it is even simpler than that. Adopt and follow the "Golden Rule". That would get the troupes home from all over the world, and those who sent them out there would all get a grenade stuffed up where the sun doesn't shine. As for the owners and operators of The Fed, the correct treatment would probably be to stuff their fiat money up there.

            I agree about the importance of good morals and being moral but then to base laws through morals can go to far. I've been speaking out against the war in Iraq since before it happened for the same reasons so I think we are on the same page but then some folks would want to take the morality laws a little further overboard and that is what I question. Like to say it is immoral to use marijuana because it is against the law when in reality it is the law that is wrong in that instance. Another topic would be abortion and who's morals are right or wrong in that case. If you believe in liberty then you have to understand that not everyone is going to agree with you about what is a personal right or what is morally right.

            Again I do believe it is important to have morals but I don't think it is the government that should be dictating morals. That is why you go to whatever church you go to and learn from those in your family. The golden rule has been something I've lived by and try to make others feel is the right way to live so I'm right on board with you there.

            And the reason we are talking about morals here is because Anne commented that for most christians they wouldn't vote for a strict libertarian because of many moral issues. I'm still curious about what moral issues are questionable about the libertarian stance of personal liberty? I've explained what I think one would be against and the reason why I think some morals are a bit to much for the government to be the dictator of. And just because a strict libertarian like Congressman Paul would say that the federal government shouldn't dictate the laws on some things people would find immoral doesn't mean he doesn't think we shouldn't teach the immorality of those issues and or allow the State government to restrict such topics. Then your voice could be easier heard if it was a State decide issue.

            I'm sorry I missed my main thought about why I think some christians would be concerned about morals and the law and that is the idea of gay couples and gay marriage. And on that point I'd have to say that we should also be practicing the golden rule and treat others as you would want to be treated. We could also listen to a lesson from Jesus and learn that none of us should think we are the judge and we should keep our stones to ourselves.

            Mildearth: To be a more moral society we will overturn Roe vs. Wade and promote a more religious society. That includes not smoking pot, cutting down on alcohol abuse etc. etc. We used to not allow alcohol sales on Sunday etc. but now we sell it 24 hours a day seven days a week. We used to have a very low divorce rate in this country. Now more people that get married get divorced than stay married. Why do you think we have been going down this slippery slope for the last 40 years? It is because we the people (the government) have decided that religion and morals aren't important. What a sad situation! However, I believe there is hope! This can be reversed by We the People if We the People want to quit going down the slippery slope and decide to take the narrow road of righteousness. I am through preaching now.

            It would seem Lindsey that we would have to agree to disagree. Our government is a representation of we the people and not we 'my' people. There are many different religions that people practice in this country and even the christian religion has conflicts amongst the denominations about what is believed to be right and wrong.

            This issue of marijuana is one I brought up because I am pro-legalization for at least medical use but I've done a fair amount of research to know the reasons it was made illegal and also the good side of what it can do for people. The plant doesn't only have to be smoked to be used for medicinal purposes and it really has many other productive uses such as for food and paper and fuel. The first Model T car built by Henry Ford was made with the hemp plant and was built to be powered by hemp fuel. It was quickly changed by those that control the oil and chemical industry namely DuPont and their government connections because they like to have the monopoly for the sake of profit. You can power diesel engines now with hemp fuel as well and the plant is very easy to grow and as a source of paper and fuel can be grown easily without chemicals and is also good for the soil as it's roots grow down and help to turn the soil when you harvest. We could also stop cutting down trees for paper and use the hemp plant and the refining process to make paper from hemp is much easier than the process required for making paper from trees. Another point on that is trees require hundreds of years to grow big and strong and the hemp plant requires a few months and then can be harvested and start all over again. If you think about it that would also allow farmers the opportunity for a new cash crop and then also allow industry for the refining of the plant into whatever you would want to make from it. It can also be used to make plastic which we currently use the by-products of oil to make plastic now so you can imagine it would be a safer plastic. I also want to point out that the Constitution and the Bill of Rights was written on hemp paper and that is one reason why the paper hasn't degraded the way it would have if the paper was wood paper. So you can see the argument for legalization of the hemp plant and also marijuana is a good argument. We could also stop locking people up for minor crimes of possession of "pot" and then less people would have to go to jail and learn to live the hardened life of the real criminals that are more about violence. We could also take that product out of the hands of the criminals and put it in the hands of adults that would regulate it like we regulate other drugs and alcohol.

            If you did your fair share of research about the hemp plant you may come to realize that the fact that it is illegal is really immoral and those that made sure to demonize the plant were doing so for the sake of profit and control. You could also know that the pharmaceutical business doesn't want this plant legalized because then they'd have more competition that cannot be patented and controlled the way their chemically made drugs can be. Funny that they throw a lot of money to our bureaucrats as well.
            And to Brandulph. I don't think I have a problem. I see it as The Fed has possibly committed crimes against the people and yes we could say they were immoral in their actions but then we could say anyone is immoral in any number of actions. I prefer to look at it as they possibly broke the law and therefor could be found to be guilty of a crime and not guilty of being immoral. I could just as easily say it is immoral of you to say that I have a problem... I really don't think that but it's just that easy to call someone immoral.

            Mildearth: "... to base laws through morals can go to far." Hmmm... on what then?... if not the prevailing moral among the peoples?

            And then to:"We will let God throw the stones as he is the judge!" Hmmm...in the ears of an old atheist from Norway (where an evangelic protestant state church exist, but where the vast majority of the population are agnostics or plain atheists), it is beyond comprehension to observe how often an evidently strong belief in a supernatural power is drawn into each and every discussion, conflict and argument in the US of A.

            Objectivity perse can never be achieved in any discussion or conflict, unless personal belief in supernatural powers are totally banned as support for ones views.
            (And, by the way; the notion that "growing up in a Christian home" makes a person "better" in any way, than one growing up in a home free from the influence of religious dogmas, is of course absolutely absurd. American history ought to be ample proof of that... just like a fiat currency, with "In God We Trust" printed on it. :-))

            As for smoking pot,Mild earth" I'm far too old for taking a personal interest in that. However, I have met a few younger people who clearly have smoked their brains away on the stuff... living in their own reality. And, if that's what a person wants and needs i order to escape the increasing madness around us, I thing they should be allowed the freedom to do just that. A decree that prohibits marijuana however, is not an answer. The 18th amendment to the Constitution of 1920 ought to be a solid lesson on that.

            And finally I would like to tell you what my grandfather said to me as I hoisted sails for my first long singlehanded haul, as a very young man. (My grandpa had years on board windjammers behind him.)
            -"When you face a real nasty storm son... never fall on your knees... never fold your hands praying for help... but hang on to that rudder... trust your wits and experience... 'cause if you don't, you will surely loose your ship and you will go down with her... and, if you by all efforts do not bring her safely through the storm... if you do not reach a snug and safe harbor... you were simply not worthy of her command... you should then have stayed home.

            I have sailed through many a storm in my life, both at sea and on land, and his advice has served me well, as it has my children.

            Mildearth: Yes, we will agree to disagree although your argument for medical marijuana is convincing. I can see supporting it for that reason but no other. Also, my family grows crops but we won't be growing any "weed" for sure as we don't need any for medicinal purposes. (At least yet) To have it available for the mass market only promotes addiction and the problems that go along with it. We have enough addiction problems in our country now. We don't need any more!

            Sorry Lindsey but we would have to disagree on the addiction problem as well. It has been studied and shown that legality has no play in whether someone uses or not and those that want to smoke or use marijuana will find it whether it's legal or not. Actually in areas where it is legal like in Amsterdam the use is less in comparison to the percentage of users in the States. The percentage of those that use it actually went up after it was outlawed by our government and then outlawing it puts it in the hands of criminals and gangs that go on and encourage people to use far worse drugs and then use illegal means to get those drugs. We can't legislate morals on people but rather we can teach them what is right and what is wrong and hope that people make the right decision.

            Most of my argument for legalization was actually for use outside of medicinal purposes though there is a strong argument for medicinal use as well. It helps people with MS, cancer and AIDS as well as menstrual cramps and basic pain relief. You seem to be ready to demonize this plant or be convinced that it is a bad plant and I feel that is based on what the government and our learning institutions have driven into our heads. They have mislead us about the facts of a good plant. Our government talks many times about being independent of foreign fuels and we could start to turn that page if we only used this plant that was given to us by the good Lord above.

            I sincerely do believe that the laws we have now are based on good moral issues but as I've stated some peoples beliefs may be a bit overboard for what the government should be legislating. The most concerning to me and what I feel is the real issue for Anne and some christians is the issue of gay marriage or just gay rights in general. I'm not gay but as has been said here already I do believe that the strongest teachings of the bible and the ones that have helped me to live a proper life have been to treat others as you wish to be treated and don't judge another unless you consider yourself to be perfect. In that we know we are all born sinners so there is not one of us that should be the judge in Gods eyes.

      This type of mindset is atrocious! Christians nor any other religious group nor any single group of people have a monopoly on knowing what is "good" let alone acting in a good manner. You mention "Hussein" like his first name has some significance. What does make a difference is that he is a Harvard Law graduate hand-picked to be the new puppet. You talk of illegal aliens; you are an illegal alien in the view of indigenous Indians who were summarily slaughtered to practical extinction by people who would call themselves Christians. If you want to be treated with respect then you have to start thinking magnanimously, not like a bigot and racist. We all discovered (if we were lucky enough to have the education and experiences for such analysis) as we grew up that mum and dad had faults and couldn't do everything they said or make the world like we wanted. The same goes for presidents and vice-presidents, kings and queens, they are not going to be the mum and dad we had or wish we had or read about in some badly written fairy-tale. Wise up!

    I already posted my thoughts earlier but I have to add something...I don't know why any of you would think that Sarah Palin would be a good running mate for Ron Paul. She is the figurehead of all that is wrong with America right now: anti-intellectual, neoconservative and completely out of touch with what our Founding Fathers believed in -- Dr. Paul needs a true libertarian as a running mate (socially liberal to attract Democratic voters, and fiscally conservative to attract Republicans) if he wants to be a viable candidate to mainstream voters -- the r3volution is alive and well, but we must distinct ourselves from all elements of the current Republican Party if we really want to spread our message

        Regardless if she is neocon or not it is still correct to say that she is a figurehead for what is wrong with who we have to vote for in the U.S. and she is surely anti-intellectual. That is not the type of person we should have as a leader and as a representative of our people. Congressman Paul has even pointed out that Palin is more in line with the country club republicans and not so much a part of the libertarian republican group. I really don't understand why so many people think that Palin is a great representative when she went and quit her job as governor and really didn't give any reason other than she felt she had a higher purpose. It does seem to me that after Fox news jumped on the Tea Party bandwagon and hijacked the platform as they did that many more have joined in understanding Congressman Paul and actually hearing what he says but they are still stuck in the mind control that that crappy news station offers.

        He might also be anti-abortion but he also says that it is not the roll of the Federal government to dictate that law and so his view wouldn't be what he would want to push on everyone else as it would seem Mrs. Palin is more about doing. As Congressman Paul says if you believe in liberty then you really have to believe in it and not just in your own personally liberties but the liberties of all people.

        I think it would be pretty cool to see Congressman Kucinich as a running mate for Congressman Paul should he decide to run in 2012. I know that's a long shot and they don't agree on all things but then who of us does agree on all things?

    We must return to the strict interpretation of the Constitution. We must hold onto our money. We must foster a spirit of individual financial responsibility. We must have industry on this soil. The fire of American Patriotism need no longer be contained. Morality must play a key role in legislation.
    Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God. I believe that Ron Paul has an honorable nature. I do not simply feel that I can trust him, I feel trust in him. He could very well be our last chance at a free Republic. I am not a rich man, but I will support him with what I have. God Bless Ron Paul and Long Live the Republic.

    I would support Ron Paul for President, but believe that he should run as an independent. The Democratic and Republican parties are compromised. Many are state they are voting for other parties in the future.

      I've pointed out what Congressman Paul has said about this here already and now I'll offer a video of what Congressman Paul says about running 3rd party. He has explained that each state has different rules for getting on the ballots and that you are cut out of the debates and really don't have a chance in the system that we have now. Here it is right from his mouth.

  11. Ron Paul fan

    I was excited about the enthusiasm of the last Ron Paul presidential campaign. I was embarrassed about the rudeness of many, though. I understand it can easily happen. Often people did not reflect the character of Ron Paul in their actions. Paul was generous and pointed out the best in these actions, but out of respect for Ron Paul, we should make this campaign even more enthusiastic, but politer. It is not about us. It is about liberty and Paul's approach to improving that. We can "be ourselves" in some other project.

    If Ron Paul runs, lets not be rude. Let's be little Ron Pauls.

    In addition (and it may be related), I was never comfortable with the Ron Paul chant. I guess it started in the Iowa march. Can we come up with something different? Maybe I am just an old grump.

    We can start now with the planting of seeds. We can address particular issues or even work to spread foundational knowledge like price theory. At these stages it may not be important to bring up Ron Paul ourselves. If Ron Paul runs, we will have a basis to work on.

    People are working hard to be able to take sabbaticals if Paul runs. For some that is just a week's vacation. Some are saving up. Some are trying to get their businesses to run without direct supervision. Some are making sure that homes are in repair and other chores are done early. Some are even loosing weight and eating right, so they can be ready to represent Paul. Some have cleaned up the yards and roof to set up their sign idea. Some have been tinkering with art and even electronic gadgets. The bows are pulled. Paul need only to say the word.

    But if Paul focuses on the House, or retires to write, I will respect that and will multiply that the best I can. Paul is a good man and I support him.

    i`d like to see a real americian in the white house, i believe Ron Paul is a up standing americian, it`s hard to believe that he has a chance, due to he`s not a member of or groomed by the new world order...

    If he approaches the campaign as a "teacher", then he should not run. If he takes on the opposing candidates by first debunking them and then selling his approach to government, then he should run. In this day and age, Mr. Nice Guy does not sell. The people have to be dragged along by the leader. Rationalizing for them just does not work.

    Last election I voted Chuck Baldwin as Dr. Paul suggested. It was the first time in 4 elections I did not write in Jesus Christ. I was told each one of the 4 times I was wasting my vote. Upon looking at 2 terms of George Bush and the last term of Bill Clinton I believe I wasn't the one wasting my vote. I will vote for Dr. Paul in the next election or I will vote for Jesus Christ. Any other vote is a waste. If wee are not in a full blown dictatorship as I believe we will be I sure hope Dr. Paul is running. I really think that he needs to run or announce as it would be very soon. Momentum is what's needed for one such as he to blast away the media bias.

    Ron Paul needs to Run with Sarah Palin, because it increases the chance of their win. Dem big gov and Rep big business want the same thing in the end. Control over citizens. Freedom speaks to small government and small business. Reps gave us outsourcing, which destroys U.S. industry, and Dems give us unions, which destroys U.S. industry. U.S. industry is what gave us power in the world in the first place, and it's the only way we'll have it back. With out it, we are just cattle, milked of our money and life for the benefit of the rest of the world. America has to win the next election, or it's toast. Dems and Reps are no longer America. America, a nation of independents, needs to take it back, with an independent party. Ron Paul is great. Sarah Palin has both the Dems and Reps scared, with good reason. Together, Paul and Palin, together as Pres and vice-Pres, could take it. Palin could win pres, not Paul. Paul would not be a do nothing vice-pres. Together they could get it done. We, America, Americans need it done. Now.

    The US needs new blood and perspective. The process to getting there is going to be difficult at best since each time a candidate other than the 'standard' Liberal or Conservative gets on the ticket he/she usually steals votes from the Conservative and they both lose. So the result leans to the left. Someone tell me how we get around that problem.

    Ron,

    I wrote your name in on the ballot in last year's election. You're a modern day Thomas Jefferson. Your brilliance is of both mind and spirit.

    You're the only person in Washington I have any FAITH in.

    Dr. Paul...Alex Jones is right. You've spoken the truth and pulled down the veil of secrecy and gov't corruption. This makes you more relevant and persuasive today than EVER and the media will be exposed once again to their obvious bias against you. Fear not, We The People are behind you and see the truth.

    WE NEED YOU!!!

    God bless!

    Please run for president! I did not know very much about you last time, and I made what I believe to be an enormous mistake by voting for Obama. I have since then paid a lot more attention to what is going on in the country, and I am absolutely amazed that there exists a politician such as yourself.

    I think there are many people like me, who would vote for you in 2012 that perhaps did not in 2008. This grassroots movement is spreading. I can't believe it.

    Please run for president, Mr. Paul. We need you.

    And to the person who posted a little bit below me: I am 26 years old, and in college. There are many others on campus who feel the same as I do. My generation has grown up inherently suspicious of the government, and we are hungry for a real change.

    I love the guy. However most of the people under 50 in this country would not (did not) vote for him because of his age. All they see is an old white republican that they detest. They all want good looking movie stars with a great facade and a lot of BS. Most of the young people in this university town never heard of him but all read Obama's book and left glassy eyed. I fully understand the old age image problem as I am seeing it every day - 67 yo. I fully understand that wisdom is only acquired with age but try to explain that to young people. Ron is the most qualified, but try to tell the aging flower children & left-wing brainwashed young university students.. Ron is too valuable where he is. Wait until his son is ready. Voting 3rd party is throwing your vote away, none has ever won yet. Work in the Dem or Rep party to get the right qualified candidate on the ballot and then maybe the right things will happen. The problem is big money rules and push their puppet with $$$$$ so who gets the air time to make it on the ticket? Ron is his own man - like Perot was.

      I'm sorry to say but you must have not been a supporter during the campaign because it was full of college students and others in age ranges from college on up. One group that formed from the message of Congressman Paul was YAL which is Young Americans for Liberty and they have been and continue to work hard for the message of liberty. I'll also share a video here of a march that was held in D.C. and you can take a look at the crowd and see it was a large mix of people.

      I know the mainstream didn't give Congressman Paul a good shot and they really worked hard to discredit him but that just means we as concerned citizens have to work harder to make sure that our friends and family know the facts as opposed to the nonsense that we call cable news. I have to disagree with you and a couple others that have mentioned that Congressman Paul is needed in the house and shouldn't be running for President. As president he would be able to really make ideas happen and share the facts and get to business and though he would still need the support of the house he would be on a better platform for we the people.

      the trick is making sure he gets on the ballot in every state --- both parties work very effectively at keeping opponents off of the ballots --- look at what the dems do to ralph nader every federal election ... they know he can steal votes --- they dont want people to have a choice ---- thats the problem

        Dr. Paul has pointed this out before and you can surely find video of him talking about running as 3rd party when he explains that each state has different rules of when and how you go about getting on the ballots. That is the real problem with running as 3rd party no matter what the party and surely it is that way for a reason to keep the two party system rolling as usual but we can't just overlook the problem and think because some of us are informed and know about the facts means that everyone should know as well. You have to do what you can with the current state of the system and or work to change the system in whatever way you can. That is the main reason Congressman Paul ran as a republican in the last election and wasn't going to switch over to run on any 3rd party platform. To me the parties don't really mean anything because once elected they all play in the same party and they play the front argument game for the media show to make people think there is a real difference. So to those whom think it's all about the party I ask you to just open up your mind and just look at the person or persons and be critical and understanding of each person and not label based on political parties. The party system is a front to make people think they are getting a good deal and that they are involved with the decision and some of us have figured out that is not always the case. We can make it happen though we just have to work together and spread the good message.

    Should Ron Paul run for president in 2012?

    He seems to be making an impact right where he is. Perhaps he can participate in the 2012 presidential candidate debates to keep the public informed but not waste time on the campaign trail.

    Because of him, I am a more informed citizen. He certainly influenced me to write my senators, representative, and non-district representatives who are on various committees.

    Last election you withdrew at the last minute and threw your vote to someone I had no desire to vote for...at all. My question is are you going to stay in until the bitter end. Maybe it will not be so bitter if you are agressive. We will never win if you do not do the kind of campaign that brings the America dissatified voting public together. Obama did all this. The internet is a great place for this job. FAST and very effective.
    The young of America are interested in politics more, and I do not think you addressed them. I am no longer young but I see the trend towards young people wanting to see change.
    Are you man enough to stick to your commitment of running to the end? Your supporters want to vote for you.

    I agree but we HAVE to overcome our fears and be leaders for the sheeple that KNOW there is something very wrong going on within our country but don't know why and do not know who the puppet master are. We HAVE to overcome the media that "they" control and get the message out without them. It's now or never.

  31. I would vote for him

    I would vote for him because I think he would be a one term candidate with a clear and concise message. He isn't and never has been a "deal cutter" so he would arrive with NO back room promises.

    That being said, I do think he accomplished MUCH MORE as a person that ran in 2008, than he would have if he had won, becaus he brought attention to the "demise of our nation" to those that were ready to listen, learn, and act.

    In 2008 many in the US really wern't ready to hear Dr. Paul's message. They believed that they wanted Barrack O. because they felt it was time. In the short 10 months he has been in office, they have begun to realize that his "hope and change" meant the rapid destruction of our country as a sovereign nation. They have been what I consider "sold out".

    Now, more are ready, willing, and eager to listen to Dr. Paul's never changing, never altered message of freedom. That is what is so appealing about Dr. Paul, he doesn't change or shift according to polls, or according to what is polically correct. He stands for liberty, peaceful trade relations, and he doesn't want to continue Nation Building. He doesn't think and in fact he KNOWS that the govmt. is NOT the answer to every question or problem.

    I would whole heartedly support his run for President. My fear is that the puppetmasters at the top would have a very different view of him as a "viable" candidate, and once again would work to marginalize him as in the past. More people would see through it in this go around and know how to combat it.....and.....this time we would know better how to fight back.

    Mr. Paul,

    I would support you in your campaign for presidency, however feel there may be many who might not. You would probably have better luck running as an independent- as Democratic leaning media has managed to paint anything Republican in a negative light. Latest polls have shown that support for Obama by independents is decreasing, the swing vote is what you need to ascertain. There will always be those who are staunch Democrats or Republicans and vote based on party rather than person. A strong Independent party could be the neutral ground between the polarity of partisan politics.

    Well Ron . . . I 'Would' like to see you run, however, I would have to say, that you 'Will' need to be an 'Aggressive' candidate, on the level of 'Ronald Reagan'. This election, will be as important as it was in 1980. This current group of 'Fools', MUST be removed, in order to 'Get this Done', it will take a man who will be able to 'LEAD' this , lets call it what it will be . . . a 'Revolution' on a level 'BIGGER' than Obama even 'Thought' of. 'Newt' would be your 'Best' choice for a VP, 'Sara', would be the 'Best' choice for Sec. of State. I have aways 'HATED' politic's, but ironicly, it something that I am 'Good' at. I've picked the winner of every election since 'NIXON'( never missed one . . . ) If you can do this, an make use of Obama's stupidity, you will bury him 'Deeper' than My. Everest is tall. As you have been a Rep. long enough to have 'Known' Reagan, so taking 'His' lesson an making it your 'Own' should not be much of a problem. You should 'Begin' this coming year ( 2010 ) to be positioned effectively. Contact those I have mentioned, an convince them to 'Come on Board'. By using your stand with Taxation, Removing of the 'Fed'( to get us Out' of this mess ) you can add whatever else, but what I have listed is the most 'Important'. Getting some 'Good Press' ( Fox ) would be a good way to start. I'll be Watching . . . B.D.Sylvia

    Well, i think that if Ron Paul would run.. "They" would do everything in their power to stop him from winning.. Even if it means killing him.. that just how they operate.. but then again if you have more than half the US population on your side, anything is possible.. so its a toss up on this one
