    The neocons & the tea partiers (they are now one and the same) have failed!! They claim that Ron Paul’s sins are on foreign policy. Appearently they forgot the FACT that Ron Paul received more $ from active soldiers than any other candidate in the 2008 primaries. Way to go Ron!!

    RON PAUL 2012!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    RAND PAUL for Senate in 2010!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    • He knows what kind of things they are going through and the other candidates don’t!

    “why would you vote for anybody but Dr. Paul?”

    Ron Paul brings home the bacon, he’s quite the porker I hear.

    In a move certain to fuel the debate over Obama’s qualifications for the presidency, the group “Americans for Freedom of Information” has released copies of President Obama’s college transcripts from Occidental College…

    A formal registration document, made available on Jan. 24, 2007, by the Fransiskus Assisi school in Jakarta, Indonesia, shows the registration of Barack Obama under the name ‘Barry Soetoro’ made by his step-father, Lolo Soetoro.


    Name: Barry Soetoro
    Religion: Islam
    Nationality: Indonesian

    How did this little INDONESIAN Muslim child – Barry Soetoro, (A.K.A. Barack Obama) get around the issue of nationality to become President of the United States of America? The transcript indicates that Obama, under the name Barry Soetoro, received financial aid as a foreign student from Indonesia while an undergraduate at the school. The transcript was released by Occidental College in compliance with a court order in a suit brought by the group in the Superior Court of California. The transcript shows that Obama (Soetoro) applied for financial aid, and was awarded a fellowship for foreign students from the Fulbright Foundation Scholarship program. To qualify for this scholarship, a student must claim foreign citizenship.

    This document provides the smoking gun that many of Obama’s detractors have been seeking — that he is NOT a natural-born citizen of the United States – necessary to be President of these United States. Along with the evidence that he was first born in Kenya, here we see that there is no record of him ever applying for US citizenship…

    Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation has released the results of their investigation of Obama’s campaign spending. This study estimates that Obama has spent upwards of $950,000 in campaign funds in the past year with eleven law firms in 12 states for legal resources to block disclosure of any of his personal records.

    Mr. Kreep indicated that the investigation is still ongoing; but that the final report will be provided to U.S. Attorney General, Eric Holder. Mr. Holder has refused comment on this matter.

      Oh SNAP, snopes throughly discredited this joke of a story:

      Might want to find some new material, this stuff is pretty threadbare…

      • longshotlouie

        SNOPES? lmao SNOPES?

        You’ve just discredited yourself to anyone reading.
        You may as well have come here with some wiki-bunk.



        • Forest

          Hmmmm. Right, a hack copy/paste job is absolutely soooo difficult to discredit. I mean it is TOTALLY reliable, right?

          I mean, just go find the original AP article. Then go find the released Occidental College information. Then go find some actual group called Americans for Freedom of Information — one that existed before the hoax message started circulating in January of 2009. That’ll be a good start; then you can verify the rest of the information contained in the hoax e-mail…

          Why, it’ll be easy!

          • longshotlouie

            And you needed to pour this through a snopes filter?

            Which was the hack copy/paste job?

    • So that means he was here in this country illegally?
      That is absurbed! Why is he even our president, if he wants to hide his true identity?

  • bring it

    I see that Dr. Paul has made some people very nervous! Bring on your lies and slander, neocons and communists alike – we will not be swayed. Ron Paul’s message is finally getting out and there isn’t a damn thing you can do about it!

    • Susan Harkins

      You are certainly right about that! They have even dedicated some serious time to it. As example, notice the monkey in the room that the Dems sent over…he posts below under the name of “Forest”, and is fixated on how we whites should view “black men” in a good light. Poor Forest Monkey…probably gets 50 cents a post from ACORN.

      • Forest

        “and is fixated on how we whites should view “black men” in a good light. ”


        Yeah, wouldn’t want this “we” (“whites”) to view a race of fellow Americans in a “good light”.

        Nice derisory use of the term ‘monkey’ as well.

      • Forest

        Still waiting for the cursory ‘take our country back’ comment… You know you want to say it…

        • Susan Harkins

          Let’s see…let me yell the opposite and see how it slides off my tongue…


          ;;;scratching head;;; Nawww, that sounds very bad…maybe your idea is better, Forest Monkey.


          ;;;smiles;;; Oh, yea – much better!
          Thanks Forest Monkey. I know that I can count on you with such difficult choices. 😉

          • Forest

            There you go… There you go…. Harness that anger… See how easy it was? See how good it felt?

            Wait here I have heard that? Something I remember my children watching more than a few years ago.

            “Good, I can feel your anger. Take your weapon. Strike me down with all of your hatred and your journey towards the dark side will be complete!”

  • Gin

    Congratulations, RON PAUL!!

    Hope you do run for President in 2012. I’ll vote for you again!

    Our Constitution and the rights and priveleges it gives to its citizens must be protected. Too many people are sleep walking. Time to shake them awake and open their eyes!

    If you want to know what America is made of, READ the US CONSTITUTION folks (and try to comprehend it)! Then, perhaps, you will begin to understand the corruption in government and the need for leaders like Ron Paul and the need for movements such as The Tea Party.

    As to offhand comments or rhetoric that is considered “politically incorrect”…get off your band wagon…unless you happen to be perfect, because I don’t know anyone who is perfect, and I doubt that there is a person on the face of the earth that has never said something that someone else thought they shouldn’t.

  • longshotlouie

    I predict that the next two posts that you read will be from angry statists.

    • Forest

      Why not just make it ‘3 angry statists’?

          Was this the same “MSM” that also ‘obliterated his presidential hopes’ with really, what turned out to be a dismal voter turnout and overwhelming lack of support, within that same ’24 months’?

          Methinks you can’t have it both ways, looks like under that barrel, Emperor Louie has no clothes.

        • Forest

          “This portrayal might be more believable if extremist views had cropped up in the newsletters only sporadically–or if the newsletters had just been published for a short time. But it is difficult to imagine how Paul could allow material consistently saturated in racism, homophobia, anti-Semitism, and conspiracy-mongering to be printed under his name for so long if he did not share these views. In that respect, whether or not Paul personally wrote the most offensive passages is almost beside the point. If he disagreed with what was being written under his name, you would think that at some point–over the course of decades–he would have done something about it.”


          • Susan Harkins


            White conservatives really tick you off, don’t they? So much so that you moved in and set up camp here just to cry your little head off about the “angry white man”, huh? Why do most of your posts include playing the race card — on the first play? Hmmm – me thinks that you have a bongo drum fettish, along with your progressive, kumbaya, BS, and you don’t like the notion that all of your libtard dreams are grinding to a halt, due to the masses of independent conservative voters that you didn’t expect, existed, to come pouring out of the woodwork, against this failed socialistic experiment that you would die for.

            Poor Forest…he will have his galls lopped off and served up to him, in November. No wonder he is crying on this Libertarian site. We are the ones passing out the knives…lol.

          • Forest

            Not really. No. And No. Felt like attacking the person and not the content I had posted, eh. I guess that is what I would expect from someone wearing:


            One cannot ‘play the race card’ if I am simply quoting from RON PAULS NEWSLETTER? How is that EVEN POSSIBLE? ahahahahahah, you make no sense.

            Now, why don’t you and Louie sit in the corner and come up with a new one, storytime is at 2pm and you don’t want to use the same speculation/conspiracy twice!

  • Ben

    yay! I’m glad he won “his” primary!

    Let’s take this as a lesson learned. Bringing unconstitutional pork projects back to your district will make friends and win voters every time.

    Rep. Ron Paul (R-Lake Jackson) 22 earmarks totalling $96.1 million

    I can’t believe this doofus has so many people so bamboozled. It takes a special kind of moron to get on board the lunatic express coloquiallyknown as the Ron Pual “R3VoLUTION”!

    • Dfens

      Clearly, Ben, you do not get the logic. You see your government as being made up of patriotic Americans, with some of whom you have philosophical disagreements. You don’t see them as being evil incarnate. You don’t see them as dangerous with a single minded purpose of being out to get you. When you look at our military, you see our sons and daughters working hard to ensure they can pass along a free country to their sons and daughters. You don’t see a bunch of statist zombies out to kill you. If you did, you’d understand the same definition of “patriotism” as Ron Paul and his followers. Your enemies would be your neighbors, your fellow Americans, and your friends would be the Communist Chinese. It would all make sense.

      When your buddies in Red China poisoned a few American kids by putting lead paint on their toys, it would be perfectly understandable. When they kill thousands around the world putting antifreeze in their toothpaste and cough syrup, it’s all about how strictly you adhere to the ideological principles of the “free market”. When they put put a few children to work or turn their workers into slaves by not paying them and forcing them to work in horrifyingly substandard conditions that’s capitalism at its best, not man’s inhumanity toward his fellow man. After all, you’ve got to break a few eggs to make an omlette, and according to Ron Paul and his true believers, these atrocities are just tests to see if the faithful are of sufficient purity of belief. It’s just like any other cult, full of scapegoats and easy answers.

      The big payoff is freedom. We’ll see how free they are when they’re buying their weapons from the Communist Chinese because they don’t have any factories here anymore. We’ll see how free they are under their beloved new masters once they’ve unilaterally disarmed our economy with their “free trade” crap. We’ll see what their “honest example of true free trade” gets them with their new masters. Well, probably not. This country still has too many real patriots for the 14th district to get what they have coming to them. It’s a shame, though.

    • Susan Harkins

      Ben Says: “Let’s take this as a lesson learned. Bringing unconstitutional pork projects back to your district will make friends and win voters every time.”

      I am holding my head down in shame, as Ben has now figured me (“a special kind of moron”) out. I will humbly admit it: I support Ron Paul and his Revolution because I secretly wanted pork in Texas. I live in Mississippi but I am just a Texan spy, posing as a Mississippian. Oh, the shame of it! Where is my flogging whip? Oh woath me; let my beatings begin.

    • longshotlouie

      As usual, that special kind of moron turns out to be smarter than ‘Ben’.

      ‘Ben’ and Dfens would prefer that a district (especially Paul’s) not get anything back from all of the money that they send to Washington. They would prefer that it be spent on the Welfare/Warfare State.

      How did someone with a moniker like Dfens get to be such a fearful pansy?

  • Right on Ron!

    Sounds like you are the official leader of the Tea Party Movement. Everyone should be telling their friends about Ron Paul and his Tea Party Movement for 2012!

    • Forest

      Does he really want to be the ‘official leader of the Tea Party Movement?

      Especially when he has a checkered past himself?

      “Paul reported on gang crime in Los Angeles and commented, “If you have ever been robbed by a black teen-aged male, you know how unbelievably fleet-footed they can be.”

      “Given the inefficiencies of what D.C. laughingly calls the `criminal justice system,’ I think we can safely assume that 95 percent of the black males in that city are semi-criminal or entirely criminal,” Paul said.”

      • Susan Harkins

        Anybody that puts an ounce of credibility into the ‘Laughington Post’, and quotes from it, is IQ- and conservatively-challenged. It is certainly not a source for solid, unbiased information.

          “‘Laughington Post’, and quotes from it, is IQ- and conservatively-challenged.”

          Ohhhhhhhh Susan… Clearly you did not even read the article and you make far too many assumptions…

          What would it do to my “IQ” if I said those are quotes from the “Ron Paul Political Report”? Ouch Susan… Ouch…

          Don’t be so quick to dismiss, it just shows your ignorance.

          • Susan Harkins


            You’re pretty clever there, my boy! You actually picked up that I would have never read the article because I don’t use the ‘Laughington Post’ as a credible source of information! By jove, I think you earned a gold star AND a happy face today, for your vocal demonstration of intellectual prowess! ;;;patting Forest on his heavily-sloped forehead;;; 😉

            But really, even if I did say that all I’d just take a page out of the RP camp and absolve myself by saying ‘Yes that was my name on it, but I didn’t write it, someone actually logged into my computer and wrote it for me. I would NEVER say such a thing.’

            “At least you have a modicum of recognition skills.”

            Well, but honestly, wouldn’t it be more like me saying ‘someone logged into my computer and posted angry and hateful things using my name for more than three decades and I had NO IDEA and as such I cannot be held responsible?’

            I mean, 30 years is quite a bit of time to NOT HAVE ANY IDEA, no? And really, given now the Watergate/Iraq conspiracy allegations isn’t this just going to be more and more of an issue? More and more difficult for people to believe it was NOT him?

            I mean, given this WAS IN HIS NEWSLETTER? Does this not sound like Ron Paul?

            “The newsletters are chock-full of shopworn conspiracies, reflecting Paul’s obsession with the “industrial-banking-political elite” and promoting his distrust of a federally regulated monetary system utilizing paper bills. They contain frequent and bristling references to the Bilderberg Group, the Trilateral Commission, and the Council on Foreign Relations–organizations that conspiracy theorists have long accused of seeking world domination. In 1978, a newsletter blamed David Rockefeller, the Trilateral Commission, and “fascist-oriented, international banking and business interests” for the Panama Canal Treaty, which it called “one of the saddest events in the history of the United States.” A 1988 newsletter cited a doctor who believed that AIDS was created in a World Health Organization laboratory in Fort Detrick, Maryland.”

      • Whoever wrote this mess for Dr. Paul should look for another job! Because not all of us blacks are criminals, act like thugs, shoot and rob people. What that person thinks that we just want to live on welfare forever? We’re all stupid and ignorant? I am one of the few black voters who didn’t vote for Obama nor did I vote for McCain! I am a black man struggling to get out of welfare and going to school! So that comment was an ignorant and racist comment!

        • Most of my best friends are white! I don’t see color at all! I am no fan of big Government telling what and what I can’t do! I know Ron Paul is an upstanding man. I am a believer of personal responsibilities, because I don’t want the American people to be depending of government to bail them out and have to pay higher taxes!

  • Brian Behe

    Congrats Dr. Paul. I am a hugh fan, I hope you decide to run for President in 2012.

  • Way to go to the people of the 14th congressional district of Texas for re-electing a very smart and knowledgeable man who stands up for common sense and takes a back seat to no one! We’re going to knock em; dead this year and 2012!

  • Dfens

    The president’s export initiatives will help a bit but China, the largest potential growth market, exports about $325 billion annually to the United States while purchasing only about $95 billion from American businesses. China maintains an undervalued currency that makes its goods artificially cheap—inexpensive well beyond its labor cost advantage—and imposes high tariffs and other barriers to U.S. exports.

    The imbalance in trade, and particularly the unlevel playing field with Chinese factories, is the most important factor keeping unemployment at 10 percent.

    Without a reduction in the trade deficit—most importantly, progress redressing the imbalance with China—it will be tough to get the economy growing rapidly enough to bring down unemployment.

    The Obama Administration and Congress [including Ron Paul] appear oblivious to these most basic facts of GDP accounting, and most fundamental realities of macroeconomic policymaking. – Seeking Alpha

    Yeah, great job Texas traitors and Ron Paul supporters everywhere. Your Communist Chinese masters are very proud of you. Keep up the good work, comrades.

  • Right on Texas! Way to show the rest of the USA how it should be done.

  • steffen

    Read Wealth of nations section on free trade and learn how free trade helps all parties involved. Paul has a logical explanation for why there shouldnt be tariffs, its silly to accuse him of being in with the chinese. plzzzz…

  • Dfens

    “Free trade does not require coordination with another government to benefit citizens here. Just like domestic businesses don’t pay taxes, foreign businesses do not pay tariffs – consumers do, in the form of higher prices. If foreign governments want to hurt their own citizens with protectionist tariffs, let them. But let us set a good example here, and show the world an honest example of true free trade. – Texas Straight Talk by Ron Paul

    Congratulations Texans of the 14th district. You’ve nominated a traitor to represent you in the US government once again. Your Communist Chinese masters must be so proud.

    The tariff that Ron Paul is “protecting” you from is a consumption tax like a sales tax. You can choose to pay it or not to pay it depending on whether you choose to buy a foreign or domestic product. Oh the horror. You can buy a domestic product made by an American craftsman, or you can pay a tax penalty for buying a product made by slave or child labor in some near-concentration camp in Red China. Ron Paul would prefer you buy from Red China and put the American craftsman out on the street. Where I grew up people like that are called traitors, but then I’m clearly not from the 14th district of Texas.

    China, of course, has protectionist trade policies. You or I cannot own anything in China. They peg the value of their crappy paper money to the value of the US dollar. They use every cheap, fraudulent, and underhanded trick in the book to protect their markets from US products, and look at how they have suffered. Their economy has grown at a double digit rate for most of nearly 2 decades. This too is what Ron Paul is protecting us from while he encourages us to set “an honest example of true free trade”. So to the 14th district of Texas I have this message to send to you. You suck!
