    As much as I agree with Ron Paul, Alex Jones is only using the same emotion to get people enraged that he accuses the powers that be of using to manipulate his listeners to the point that they think that anti-war liberals are the enemy. this is a farce, I appreciate that he’s offering a point of view that isn’t out there. But, these blowhards behind microphones are all the same left or right, they act like they know everything and can never be wrong about anything because they’d be embarrassed

    why would you vote for Ron Pual? He wants to legalize drugs. The idea that the drug addict is not harming anyone but himself is fallacious. Drug use leads to mental and physical problems which cause the addict to become a burden on the state. They will also lead to child neglect, inability to work and manic states which may cause the addict to become violent to others.
    We already see similar things with alcohol a perfectly legal substance.
    ron paul’s logic is flawed.

    We need to pass, as the People of this Nation, a “CLEAN HOUSE” Bill that will that get rid of ALL the greedy, apathetic, evil, insane mofo’s, We will see who is against our message, which holds Freedom and Truth. I am 27 yrs old, and I can see how our government is wreckless, and puts MY life at stake. They continue to do it because we haven’t held them accountable. I want to be Proud of my nations gov, not Disgusted with it. We can’t keep doing this, so let’s make history and fix this right

    Im tired of our bully ass gov. taking ALL our our lives for granted just so they can PLAY us like we are worthless. We who love freedom and peace are a quiet, raging storm approaching 2012 – our rEVOLution is REAL and we need to ACTIVELY support Ron paul, a great, WISE, HONEST HUMAN BEING that I support and for the TRUTH / RESOLUTIONS he has to offer. He needs us to give him that chance to make it right. Once we are aware that our politics is OUT OF CONTROL and is truly corrupt-

    I have alot of respect for Ron Paul, but a little less since seeing his position on the Cordoba house near Ground Zero; he sounds a bit like Nancy Pelosi with the “who’s behind the opposition to the mosque?”. A majority of the American people are opposed to it Dr. Paul!

    “There Are No Heroes in Illegal and Immoral Wars”
    When the 4th Stryker Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division rolled out of Iraq last week, the colonel commanding the brigade told a reporter that his soldiers were “leaving as heroes.”
    While we can understand the pride of professional soldiers and the emotion behind that statement, it’s time for Americans — military and civilian — to face a difficult reality: In seven years of the deceptively named “Operation Iraqi Freedom” and nine years of “Operation Enduring Freedom” in Afghanistan, no member of the U.S. has been a hero.
    This is not an attack on soldiers, sailors, and Marines. Military personnel may act heroically in specific situations, showing courage and compassion, but for them to be heroes in the truest sense they must be engaged in a legal and morally justifiable conflict. That is not the case with the U.S. invasions and occupations of Iraq or Afghanistan, and the social pressure on us to use the language of heroism — or risk being labeled callous or traitors — undermines our ability to evaluate the politics and ethics of wars in a historical framework.
    The legal case is straightforward: Neither invasion had the necessary approval of the United Nations Security Council, and neither was a response to an imminent attack. In both cases, U.S. officials pretended to engage in diplomacy but demanded war. Under international law and the U.S. Constitution (Article 6 is clear that “all Treaties made,” such as the UN Charter, are “the supreme Law of the Land”), both invasions were illegal.
    The moral case is also clear: U.S. officials’ claims that the invasions were necessary to protect us from terrorism or locate weapons of mass destruction were never plausible and have been exposed as lies. The world is a more dangerous place today than it was in 2001, when sensible changes in U.S. foreign policy and vigorous law enforcement in collaboration with other nations could have made us safer.
    The people who bear the greatest legal and moral responsibility for these crimes are the politicians who send the military to war and the generals who plan the actions, and it may seem unfair to deny the front-line service personnel the label of “hero” when they did their duty as they understood it. But this talk of heroism is part of the way we avoid politics and deny the unpleasant fact that these are imperial wars. U.S. military forces are in the Middle East and Central Asia not to bring freedom but to extend and deepen U.S. power in a region home to the world’s most important energy resources. The nation exercising control there increases its influence over the global economy, and despite all the U.S. propaganda, the world realizes we have tens of thousands of troops on the ground because of those oil and gas reserves.
    Individuals can act with courage and compassion serving in imperial armies. There no doubt were soldiers among the British forces in colonial India who acted heroically, and Soviet soldiers stationed in Eastern Europe were capable of bravery. But they were serving in imperial armies engaged in indefensible attempts to dominate and control. They were fighting not for freedom but to advance the interests of elites in their home countries.
    I recognize the complexity of the choices the men and women serving in our military face. I am aware that economic realities and the false promises of recruiters lure many of them into service. I am not judging or condemning them. Judgments and condemnations should be aimed at the powerful, who typically avoid their responsibility. For example, a journalist recently asked Ryan Crocker, former U.S. ambassador to Iraq, to reflect on U.S. culpability for the current state of Iraqi politics. Crocker was reluctant to go there, and then refused even to consider the United States’ moral responsibility: “You can ask the question, was the whole bloody thing a mistake?” he said. “I don’t spend a lot of time on that.”
    It’s not surprising U.S. policymakers don’t want to reflect on the invasions, but the public must. Until we can tell the truth about U.S. foreign policy, and how the military is used to advance that policy in illegal and immoral ways, we will remain easy marks for the politicians and their propagandists.
    Part of that propaganda campaign is suggesting that critics of the war don’t support the troops, don’t recognize their sacrifices, don’t appreciate their heroism. We escape the propaganda by not playing that game, by telling the truth even when it is painful.

    Too bad we’re most likely going to get another war and just in time to distract us from the economic nightmare we’re headed for. America needs someone like Ron Paul as president or we are going to be in deep shit.

    Clearly it isn’t our Offensive War Spending that’s the big culprit you make it our to be.

    So it must be that “ENTITLEMENT” spending that we can’t touch that’s really the problem!

    I wish the rest of congress would be reasonable as Ron Paul. It’s disappointing the amount of special interest that controls people in office. Realistic reasoning isn’t there.

    This country is screwed when Ron Paul isn’t here anymore.

      There is scuttlebutt about invading Somalia as well. Its time for all the tyrants of Earth to be removed from power so people can live life without violent megalomaniacs forcing their fraudulent occupation.

    Ron Paul is THE MAN! God, how much I love this man. He’s so friggin genuine, and truthful and dedicated to his job. Alex Jones is awesome too, and very bright; the man knows his stuff. Rand Paul, now although I don’t know much about him, I can only assume he’s close to being like Ron Paul, so he definitely has my support. God bless America!

    I’m so glad Ron Paul puts the responsibility of terrorism into the hands of the individual terrorists instead of the entire religion of Islam. It’s a tragedy how Muslims are viewed nowadays all because of some extremists.

    All Paul wants to do is for INDIVIDUALS who have done wrong to take responsibility. Anyone who calls him a racist doesn’t know what they’re talking about.
