    He is the carrot on the stick to keep us all in good hope. I applaud the man and respect him dearly but there is a reason he is not in power. Don’t NOT prepare for the economic collapse because it is inevitable and no politician can fix the amount of debt we’ve piled up in the name of terrorism. BUY FOOD, WATER, GUNS, AND BULLET PROOF VESTS NOW

    Don’t forget that US government also helped Saddam to power, gave him chemical weapons and funded him. They prolly planned all this from the start… it’s really disgusting.

    All the hardcore political citizens will post year-round about how awesome Ron Paul is; but, when the elections come, they are drowned out by hordes of partisan band-wagoners. It’s sad that those who really participate get so easily drowned out when it matters, but it has always been this way.

    the funny thing is the mediator’s textbook response “Gentleman’s time expired, Gentleman from texas Mr Green”..lol… Snap out of it..Robotic mode and actually start a diologue about these concerns before you move right on to the next. But, I will yield the rest of my remaining characters… “Youtuber’s time is expired”

    I am not shocked but I have to say hearing this broke my heart. Dr. Paul is my congressman and my hero. I do mean hero in the truest since of the word.
    Thumbs up if you agree.

    Hes a libertarian, all the republican and democrats are the same. if you think you have a choice when voting for your run of the mill republican or democrat, you don’t they are the same candidates who mostly differ on irrelevant issues. They are just there to give the illusion of choice.

    No Win War???

    The New American for November 9, 2009, has an interesting article on General Barry McCaffrey’s statement that the US “faces 10 more years of war in Afghanistan” and that the US should “focus upon a long and expensive nation-building process for Afghanistan’s tribal culture.” There seems to be a mindset in the establishment for the US to maintain a long term presence in the MidEast.

    For a long time, the US has operated in the region through hidden agendas. In his book, The New World Order, Mr. Pat Robertson, states that George Bush 1 suggested that the fate of Kuwait was not the main issue, “launching the New World Order was the main thing.” Mr. Robertson further writes, “By words and by silence, the United States flashed Saddam Hussein a green light” … to move into Kuwait and suggests this was used as a pretext for the 1st Gulf War…the implication is that Saddam was entraped with Green Light Diplomacy but there was a much larger agenda(hidden) for moving against Hussein………..

    For the situation in Afghanistan and Pakistan, the evidence suggests that the US and its allies are not doing all that can be done to win this war and there is some agenda for prolonging this conflict.

    The Advocate quotes Hillary Clinton(Dec. 7, 2009, p. 5A), stating it is “hard to believe” that no one in Islamabad knows where the al-Qaida leaders are hiding and couldn’t get them “if they really wanted to.”

    In the aftermath of 9.11, the bombing of the wrong escape route out of Afghanistan into Pakistan and the nighttime airlift by the US of the Taliban and Al Qaeda operatives that were allowed to escape(The New Yorker, Jan 28, 2002, p. 36); Gary Berntsen, the head of the CIAs team at Tora Bora said they tracked bin Laden and (he) “…could have been caught.”(Newsweek, Aug 15, 2005, p. 5); There is evidence that the Pakistani ISI is funding the Taliban and knows where they live but dont arrest them.(Time, Nov. 29, 2004, p. 44)

    There is a strategy by the Pakistani government “…which pays tribes and insurgent networks to attack each other with a goal of preventing any one group from getting too strong”.(US News, Oct 13/Oct 20, 2008, p. 24)(a strategy used by the Brits) Pakistani Ambassador, Haqqani presents evidence in his book that the Pakistani military and ISI make “…the pretense of arresting militants in order to get funds from Washinton. But it never shut down the networks.”(Newsweek, May 11/May 18, 2009, p. 29)

    The CIA never takes a junior partner role with any of these groups and we have to assume wants this to continue. The New York Times(Oct. 27, 2009) reports that Karzai’s brother is on the CIAs payroll and is a suspected player in the opium trade which finances the Taliban.

    All of this only contributes to a more chaotic situation which feeds a hidden agenda for a “no win war” and prolonged conflict at the expense of American boys and girls lives!!

    US FUNDS THE TALIBAN????

    One of the most important issues today is the war in Afghanistan-Pakistan and the fact that US
    Military Aid to Pakistan is being used to fund the Pakistani ISI which is in turn funding Taliban
    and Al Quada fighters. While this has been reported sporadically in the media for whatever
    reason political pundits on the left and right have effectively ignored this issue.

    Joe Klein in an article for Time, August 9, 2010, p. 19, has written an article that every American
    citizen should go to their library and read, he writes,

    “The commanders are unanimous in their belief that the ISI is running the show….And so,
    despite professions of alliance with the US by Pakistan’s then dictator Pervez Musharraf, a
    decision was made to keep the Taliban alive. A spigot of untargeted military aid from the George
    W. Bush Administration helped fund the effort. A commander of the vicious Haqqani Taliban
    network tells Waldman that their funding comes from ‘the Americans–from them to the
    Pakistani military, and then to us.’ Waldman reports that the commander receives from the
    Pakistanis ‘a reward for killing foreign soldiers, usually $4000 to $5000 for each soldier killed’”.

    American tax dollars if not directly, then indirectly are being used to fund the Taliban and put
    a bounty on American boys and girls head… Makes one wonder why the establishment right
    or left is not reporting on this? If the right is covering for
    the mistakes of the Bush administration…why is the establishment left not reporting on this???
    …this is the most important issue of the day…we will never win a war where if not directly then
    indirectly the US is funding the opposition!!!!

    I read the entire cable, and it’s quite interesting. But to say we gave the ‘green light’ seems like a stretch. Numerous times the US ambassador says the US thinks peace and stability are important in the region. And the US has no official stance on the border issue. But does ‘not have a stance’ = “go ahead an invade”?

    I am not dismissing our role ( Irangate ), but you should all READ THE CABLE FOR YOURSELVES. I very well could be wrong. I am a complete novice in this and many other areas.

    Despite his odd affiliation with the populist Republican fringe group that is the “Tea Party”, Paul and his son are the people who have the integrity to run this country.

    Truth brings “accountability” shame on u Shawn!
    Why do I always get the feeling that the congress cringes when Ron Paul gets up too speak?
    It’s as though truth regarding the ridicules’ wars, the un federal no reserves banking cartel, as well as the giving away trillions, of Americans wealth is taboo to discuss. Why is truth the poison? I think everyone with a working mind knows the answers without any further need for commenting. 2011 is going to be a very disclosing year get ready!

    who cares, no one cares about this, sure we watch the videos, but we’re not gonna do anything

    no one else is going to do anything either, most of our 300Million people don’t give a damn about any of this, they won’t care until they are starving and cold, which is why the government makes a point of it to hand out welfare and extend unemployment benefits

    CFR Member Carroll Quigley:

    “The powers of financial capitalism had another far reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements, arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences.”
