    Betrayed by our Congress again who are either in bed with the Moneymasters or afraid of their fellow congressmen/women who are or both. We are literally being sold down the river to the FED and Wall Street tyrants. Land of the Free? Maybe one day…

    RON PAUL for President 2012

    Lets work to secure a top notch campaign manager/architect, like Karl Rove
    http://www.rove.com/
    It will take a lot of hard work to get Paul on the top of the GOP ticket!

    ARE YOU ALL up for the challenge ahead?

    lol, yes, Paul is not an expert at making sound bites. God forbid the neocons watching the Republican debates should pause and think for a moment!

    I just find the sluggishness startling. You have Giuliani out there saying, “9/11″ every other word and Paul gives a clear, concise response and he’s labeled the nutjob. Go figure.

    Haha, nice shot at Rush Limbaugh there. “Those libertarians need to stop blogging and leave their mom’s basement and get a girlfriend”, how about you read some Spooner, Rothbard, and works on Austrian econ and get back to me….Dumbasses.

    I think there should be a sequel to this! About this pinhead who’s currently in the white house and the Presidential campaign. Also in the “08″ GOP primaires either the the elections were rigged or the American people voted blindly for these Neo-Conservative candidates. I am waiting for sequel and 2012.

    What was wrong with that lady, “their just kids” she acted as if the guy was handing out pornography or something.

    What has happened to our country when parents are afraid to give their kids a copy of the constitution?

    We need to wake up this country! Lets stand up and make the changes that are needed to save this country before it’s to late.

    I will never forget Dr Paul speaking at a rally in a Simi Valley hotel shortly after the Republican debates down the street at the Reagan Libray… Simply one of the most incredible moments, gatherings, & energies Ive ever been present to. Thanks for the memories

    Were the voting machines were used? No more voting machines. i believe He won the election if it were voted without the voting machines. Get rid of the voting machines. They could have been cheated.

    What an inspiring video, and don’t lose heart America. Watching this video from England made me realise what a long way we still have to go compared to you guys. You may think the world is against you, but you have so many advantages over me – you have the constitution, the figurehead and the strong belief in libertarian ideas, we have none of those three things.

    The “withered tree” is the perfect way to describe our job market ever since the Libertarians joined forces with the Republican Party.

    Eric Mussen, an apiculturist or bee expert at the University of California, Davis, said it costs U.S. beekeepers about $1.40 to make a pound of honey, including colony maintenance, transportation to honey production areas, harvesting and packing. Before tariffs, he said, Chinese honey was coming into the U.S. at about 35 cents per pound.

    “Obviously, this is not a ‘level playing field,’” Mussen wrote in an e-mail response to questions.

    Mussen said if the antidumping tariffs were lifted, sales of U.S. honey “would probably drop way off, but not necessarily to zero. Many U.S. beekeepers would go out of business.”

    Fewer bees also could affect crops like California almonds, which rely on commercial crop pollination services that are carried out by bees, he said. – AP

    If Ronny and Randy have their way we will unilaterally eliminate all tariffs and remove all limits and quotas on visas. They will turn us into China. They and thier ilk have already gone a long way toward doing just that. It’s time for Conservatives to be Conservatives.

      Defens,
      NO, the Pauls do not stand for unfair and predatory trade policy. They stand up for free market balance without corrupt government cronyism. Our government is deeply engaged in “special favors” for big business. The GOP is so vested in crony politics, they can’t afford Ron Raul because his ethics won’t tolerate this selective special political payoffs.

      Ron Paul’s 2008 campaign was exemplary and demonstrated the highest level of political integrity. But the GOP isn’t about integrity, that’s why they nominated John McCain a dyed in the wool RINO. McCain’s voting record is riddled with leftist votes.

      We support Ron Paul because LIBERTY means NO COMPROMISE!

        So if you reduce tariffs for the right reason then they won’t have the effect of putting Americans out of jobs like if you reduce them for the wrong reasons? The simple life of a true believer must be so wonderful.

      You’re kidding?
      The AP is whining because China’s low honey prices could effect America’s bee keepers which they say would cause California’s almond crops to fail if less beekepers create less bees and now their is less cross pollination???
      OK
      Anise hyssop is just one plant/weed which can sustain and attract bees.
      Weeds that attract and sustain bees are very abundent.
      Someone should tell the AP that Government intervention is not needed for cross pollination; just a few bee friendly weeds which a five year old could sow in one day.
      Oh and maybe the bee keepers in America could produce the honey for less money if this WICKED government would stop taxing them….

        Federal income tax is 40% and if we eliminated that completely then, according to you, it would make up for the 400% difference in honey prices? That should be a neat trick. Next you’ll tell us that elminating federal taxes will ensure the drugs the Chinese bee keepers give their bees won’t make US consumers sick with aplastic anemia any more too, right? Wait, that part must be the Fed’s fault somehow.

          Bee keepers aren’t needed for bees to procreate and pollinate. Bees do that on their own so the AP lied when they said beekeepers were needed for cross pollination of almond crops.
          Federal taxes are 40%? What about property taxes? Payroll taxes? Local taxes?

          Also when it comes to sales, cheaper is not always better, when the economy is moving. Quality matters. The idea of Americans lining up to buy cheap food from overseas would only be true during a serious depression and, we wouldn’t be in a serious depression if it weren’t for the feds. Is Nancy Pelosi still paying 100s of dolars for each bottle of champaigne they consume??? If so then Americans should be financially secure enough to give farmers a few extra dimes for locally grown honey. Come now…you want stuff from overseas instead? Of course you don’t. If we can’t give our local farmers a few extra dimes and if they can’t afford to produce the honey because of federal, local, payroll and property taxes then…this wicked wicked government needs to go.

    There’s still time to save this country. If there weren’t so much waste in this huge government we’d have the most prevalent country on the planet by far. Instead, we struggle to be one of the top nations. We need to get back to basics. We need to believe that freedom and liberty are most important things to us. If we take these things seriously, we can actually do something positive for us. Things start at home. If we’re in the positive then we can make the world positive.
