    Wait.. is this THE Ron Paul talking? never thought I’d agree with him on anything, but I stand corrected. Wikileaks will go away once the world media starts opening their eyes and doing their job i.e. digging, publishing, and critically reporting on the empires and secret societies that are crushing this fair planet of ours. It’s a global issue – or rather, a plethora of global imperatives that every country must tackle together. yes, there will be other Wikileaks. It is only the beginning.

    Thank you Wikileaks for finally providing the public a foolproof way to hold governments accountable, all around the world. The secrecy that serves to separate us all will now die the death it deserves. No more will the people be victims of false propaganda used to start wars, or compartmentalized information that breed corruption. The world has been waiting a long time for this. Over a million people have joined Wikileaks Facebook page, in common support for the truth. And many more will join this effort.

    The US public and politicians worldwide condemn this, of course they do.
    The rest of the world thinks it’s fascinating and hillarious, of course they do.

    It doesn’t matter what the US does now, it’s just a bunch of irrelevant peasants trapped by stupidity and owned by China. An army so shit it can’t move 5 metres without costing a billion dollars and raping a hundred people. Politicians so corrupt as to make the mafia blush. Now even the bridges, roads, and schools are crumbling.

    I ask myself what governmet think they will achive if they will remove Assange?
    Tomorrwo will come someone else who will show us the filty things which government do and what they hide from us. The truth always come out no mather how they try to hide it. Just don’t understand people who support governmet with removing Assange from earth. He is not the problem, problem is people who make this drty things, who made therorism and who earn money from it.

      if the government succeeds in ‘removing’ Assange, it will merely go to re-inforce what the leaks are showing. That the government is becoming unaccountable for its actions.

    As individual and as society, we possess the intellect to see the path of cowardice, privacy, and ignorance is not the one given us by the Omnipotent, Omnipresent, and Omniscient to follow for our well being and security. Support courage, public access, and sharing of knowledge, they continue to be under attack.

    TOo bad the tea party is too retarded to copy your stance on America. Even though I disagree with you on certain social issues and maybe even on Korea. I would support you and would give a thumbs up to you only. Until “they” corrupt you too like the yhave with Obama and the rest of the puppets in the government.

    I promise to do everything I individually can to get Dr. Paul nominated. Although I wish that Dr. Paul would run as an independent if he doesn’t get the republican nomination in 2012. You sir are an amazing human being with true integrity, you have no idea how much your constituency appreciates your actions.

    Wish Ron Paul was Canadian, you are so lucky to have a politician who has not been corrupted, one who has such a level head and peaceful approach. He really is for the people and I hope to see him as your president. I don’t think you would find a finer leader, more honest or real. Take care of him and best of luck!!

    Some people says that wikileaks are the most lies. Please people open your mind. If taht was lies, than why they search him and some want’s to kill him? The most are the truth and everyone can see that. Just need a lot of time and search the net, aftzer that connect the ends and you find it, almost all is the truth. Now I know that Zeitgeist is not a lie.

    Ron Paul for president. I think right now that is our only hope. We can still turn this country around if we could get him elected president. He is the only honest, sane, courageous politician out there. I am awed by his guts but there is also shrewd political judgment behind his statement. The establishment is outraged because Assange is tweaking their noses. They forget that the people may not feel the same way. In a recent poll, 82% of Australians agreed with Assange that he was getting screwed by the Australian government. 82%! The Australian government quickly backpedaled and decided that maybe Assange was welcome home after all. Most people do not like establishment politicians. Assange may be a villain to the political establishment, but he is a hero to most of the people. Dr. Paul has recognized this. I hope Dr. Paul will run for president in 2012.

    America, from across the pond in the UK, we need you now more than ever to recognise that we need Libertarians like Ron to be the voice of you, a true patriot.
    Only then when the ordinary populace of the worlds superpower recognises the monster of the elites in the shadows pulling strings of all government policies, which only sicken and anger the world at large.
    They have bankrupted us all, and here we are in 2010, our children to be born into debt with an ever increasing ‘bare necessities’ maintenance bill to ensure us rats work the treadmills till our graves paying off an un-payable ever-growing debt, so we further continue to feed the machine.
    That’s pretty much Communism in practice with merely more material daily requirements to exist to distract us, all nice and shiny distractions.

    Why nobody ever ask why we pay for our electricity, when technologies of Tesla proven we can all be self sufficient?
    Why nobody ask why?

    I wonder if more republicans are going to start supporting Wikileaks like Ron is doing. It will make our current leaders look bad.

    If this happened during Bush’s presidency, then he would have already declared war on Wikileaks and the rest of the internet.

    Sent 12/5/10 to the CEOs of Amazon, EBay and PayPal:

    I am appalled by the withdrawal of support of Wikileak (Julian Assange) by Amazon, EBay and Paypal.

    Here we have an individual courageous enough to do what no one else has in the history of our planet – certainly not a CEO of any international corporation.

    Assange has stood up to provide transparency and thus accountability with respect to corporate, governmental and military behavior at a level greater than we have ever known in the history of humanity.

    This is a GOOD thing for life on Earth. Only those involved in malfeasance and/or wrapped in fear or the illusion that what the corporate, governmental or military worlds say is count-on-able would view otherwise.

    So what is it that Amazon, EBay and Paypal have to hide, I wonder?

    We need corporations such as these to demonstrate vision and courage to stand up in support of what improves us at individual, organizational and systems levels – as uncomfortable as it may seem in the beginning. Otherwise, we’ll never clean house of the very corruption, dysfunctionality and outright dishonesty responsible for today’s unprecedented global malaise.

    If Amazon, EBay and Paypal are not willing to do this, then I’ll not do business with them, rather do everything I can to encourage a boycott on the part of others.

    Time to wake up and stand up here, INCLUDING those in our own government who lack the decency and huevos to do what is right – all the way to the top, if need be!

    Ron. I haven”t voting rights in USA, rather in two other countries. But how can it be, that you disapeared so quick from candidates list in president elections. Interesting. It was been soon after biocybernetical measurements of all candidates. And your biosystem wasn”t been worst in that time.

    Ron, I think you have shaved off from the understanding that it is “illegal” to put out this information. Now, I can agree with you that we do need to have less secrets in the government, however, it is not necessry to have absolutely every little thing said and known be made known to every man, woman and child. If certain items are “classified” or “top secret” then there needs to be a law that is implemented to make those things known. “don’t blame wikileaks…”??? I blame Julian Ass…whatever for making information, that was deemed confidential, known to the public without regard for what this information might do. Let’s have more information, less secrets, but let’s do it the right way, the legal way. I am not opposed to the US limiting our military occupation around the world, but I am for the US being a moral country that is able to lead, and promote freedom around the world. And yes, doing so legally.

      problem is the government just marks everything ‘secret’, ‘top secret’ and ‘classified’.

      case in point, the ‘terrorists’ locked up in G-bay. Sure some of them are really bad people, and no in general i don’t want them to be roaming around.

      However you must remember, if you give the government the power to arbitrarily take away anyone’s rights without due process of court (and due process is evidence presented and challenged, not government saying ‘the evidence is classified’), then one day when they come after YOU, who will be protecting your rights?

      And its not that you haven’t done anything ‘wrong’.
      Black people hadn’t done anything ‘wrong’ either, they were just born black, and laws existed to exclude them.

      Japanese Americans did not do anything (the Japanese imperial navy did) in WWII, but they were interned.

      Now all American Muslims too are ‘evil’.
      Next it will be Chinese Americans.
      And when the drug war comes across the border it will be Mexican Americans that the government can arrest and detain without trial.

      Where does it stop? When the ‘war’ ends?
      Newsflash, there will NEVER be an ‘end’ to this ‘war on terror’. It is the only way government can justify its extension of civil liberties erosion.

      your 4th amendment is gone at the airport (not to mention your car in your driveway too).
      your 1st amendment is likely to go too if they get to get an internet kill switch/ censor and/or succeed against wikileaks.
      10th amendment due process rights are already gone if you’ve been labeled a ‘terrorist’.
      do you ‘feel’ safer? hey if I lock you up in solitary confinement in a prison you should feel 100% safe. no terrorist or criminal can attack you there.

      Lastly, stop blaming Julian Assange and find out the facts. The 250,000 cables being touted have NOT all been released. Only about 680 were released, many were redacted by the NYT and Guardian newspapers with input from the US authorities. If wikileaks had leaked current operational and tactical military plans by all means I would say they should be prosecuted.
      But towing the party line of ‘transparency is bad’ is NOT in our interests.

      I’m sure Nixon would have listed Watergate as ‘top secret’ if he could. Should we have arrested the reporters who reported on that?
