    I would vote for Ron Paul for president even though I understand that he hasn’t got a chance. His stance on 9/11 in saying that it was caused by American presence on the Arabian peninsula is simply not acceptable to most voters. Even though it’s the straight truth. Bin Laden also said as much. Ron Paul just knows that what goes around comes around and he’s not afraid of saying it.

    He didn’t say that 9/11 was an inside job. His detractors took his words and twisted them. He simply said that the Bush2 regime probably used 9/11 for an excuse to attack Iraq.

    Besides that, his stance on ending the wars is not acceptable to American voters even though it’s right on the money.

      Can you just see the ads run by his opponents? Ron Paul wants to take away your SS checks and pension checks. He will most certainly lose the senior vote and all who are near retirement. We have been spoon fed by the government for so long it will be almost impossible to break the addiction. Every govt. dept. he wants to do away with will just add to voter dissention. I don’t see how he can overcome these things….

          That sounds real good but doesn’t change the hard facts…

    Then I guess we’d better figure out how to overwhelm those organizations, those people who are actually backbiters, not just those who are rightly pointing out where the flaws are. How do we do that?

      They are extremely powerful and have existed through many presidents. I’m sorry to sound so negative but I’m 60 years old and I’ve seen alot of politics

        I understand what you’re saying, and I don’t disagree with you, but power is not, necessarily, the end-all and be-all of political influence. I guess my hope is that someone with a lot more brain power than I have can devise a strategy, and the tactics to accomplish it, to overcome that power. Perhaps it’s not a matter of overcoming it, but even undermining it may work.

    As much as I am going to vote for RP he will never be allowed to be president. They’ll find a way for him to lose at the convention and even if he wins the nomination the elections will be rigged so he loses. Big government, the Federal Reserve, the military complex will never allow it.

    Doc… in 2008 I was swept up in the fervor that came with “Mr. Change”, and I have regretted, very desperately -being unemployed now since September due to the changing economy-, my vote since that time.

    If you decide that the plumb is right, and do decide to run, you will have my vote hands down. Everyone else was a clown back then, and that’s been proven true by this hokey President we have, now, and everyone else is a clown this time. I am nearly 40 years old, and my shame deepens on this nation -in particular, our government- each day. I don’t know where my family and I will be next week, but I’m staring the maw of financial ruin -when we didn’t have that much to begin with, except each other- square in the jaws, and I know we need to withdraw our claws from the rest of the world until we can get ourselves straight.

    For the record, I’m not looking for another savior, I already have One, so that pressure is off; however, if you could bring some common sense back to Washington, and you can growl loudly enough, I will do all in my very limited power to help you.

    Thank you.
