    He didn’t say he would LEGALIZE heroin. He said it just shouldn’t be illegal, along with marijuana, cocaine, and prostitution. If heroin was legal (as it and cocaine was at one time), do you really think that EVERYONE would immediately start using it? Did you hear him in the debate?

    Personally, he thinks it’s terrible but he believes in freedom, something we just don’t have anymore in this country…because the government continually tells us, more and more, what to do.

    the American government is like a gambling addict, they can never stop no matter how deep the hole. We all know what happens to gambling addicts, most end up in the gutter. I hope Ron Paul can save your country from the gutter, that is where it is heading. GOOD LUCK MR. PAUL IN 2012

    I always end my posts w/ Ron Paul 2012…You are either for FREEDOM or you are not…

    Now I know that probably less than 10% of those on here professing support of Ron Paul are truly for FREEDOM…nonetheless, we need all the votes we can get…

    For instance, true libertarians like Ron Aul are opposed to public education…now, I do not have time to argue this issue…however, at the very least, all of us can agree that the Federal government should not interfere in this…it just adds a costly, inefficient, detrimental layer of bureacracy to educating America’s schoolchildren…

    there are other issues that Ron PAul would at the very least get the Federal government out of, of course…and this will certainly make it easier to…
    a)lower government spending
    b) lower government regulations,
    c) lower taxes, and
    d) improve our national security by protecting our borders…so….Ron Paul 2012…you are either for FREEDOM or you are not…but even if you are for “more” freedom, please vote for Ron Paul

    I love Ron Paul, but lets face it, he has ZERO chance of winning the republican primary. Why you ask?

    A) Because the people voting in the primary are a bunch of fox news watching idiots. Seriously, this is a group of people who think Glen Beck is the most intelligent person of TV.

    B) Sadly without huge corporate donations you cannot possibly raise enough money to convince people to vote for you, and with Dr. Paul that would be the end of the corporate welfare state.

    My advice to him would be run as a democrat, he’s going no where in this modern age Republican party.

    I’m a great supporter of Ron Paul! He’s the only one who understands the problem of having a federal reserve system.

    About the debt ceiling, I sincerely do not see the issue there. It is just a number on paper. It means printing money rather than solving the problem, but I find immoral
    to tax the people in order to pay the interests (and only the interests) on the federal debt.
    Having the power to print the dollar would also mean having the power to
    issue interest-free bonds. We know that the Fed does not like it but that is certainly possible.

    I wish to remind anyone who speaks of government debt, that private banks also have an enormous amount of debt. The debt with US the people. Every penny in your bank account is NOT stored for you in some place, it is a credit you have with your bank, which is in debt with you.
    All the banks are in debt with the account holders for the total amount of money in their accounts.
    This would be true even if we use gold as a currency.

    Obviously I don’t claim I have a solution, I just wish to remind everyone that is the interests paid that matter, not the debt ceiling.

    Best.

    i was watching my local nbc news the other day, and they posted the republicans running for the 2012 election. the list did not include ron paul. what i want to know is if they purposely left him off the list? you know, these propaganda machines know as news networks now aday, have thier own agenda. i think washington and the ultra rich are afraid of paul running, because he might just shake things up!

    Dear Ron, keep up the good work
    I love it when you wipe the smile off Ben Bernanke’s face.
    Here is my view,
    When someone is in debt they borrow money from their friends to pay it off.
    Now lets suppose your friends are in debt also & can’t lend you money.
    So they themselves borrow money from other people & it goes on forever.
    Basically the country is totally bankrupt with no one to borrow money from
    so there is infinite debt, whatever cuts to jobs or services are made all money saved today is spent tomorrow.

    We need a new financal system that will dispose of this debt infinity loop forever BRICS could be the answer gold backed sound money. Paying with gold from fort knocks is a great idea, untill you find out they are worthless lego bricks,
    God said “let there be light” he never said Ben Bernanke may create money out of thin air. For all those bankers ect who can’t answer the question of what money is
    Definition Of Money: “A failed bad idea”.

    Go Ron Paul :-)

    Raising the debt ceiling will indeed send a STRONG signal to the markets/creditors that the US in not addressing its fundamental debt problems and will make them nervous. HOWEVER, if we do not raise it, markets and creditors will calm down as they see that the US is indeed trying to do something positive about their fiscal health, and prosperity and integrity can be restored in this country eventually

    The people who criticize him for no reason make me laugh. They always have no argument and just say that he’s racist or something stupid like that. Stop spreading misconceptions about him. He has a great record and the policies he stands by are constitutional. None of you have anything on him and you know it! GROW UP……..

    I Have a question why do people keep attack Social Security like it is part of the debt? when I have paid for my share of it out of my pay my whole work life. I know what I pay go’s to the people in front of me and the one that are behind me will pay for me when I get old and can not work any more. I just don’t understand how they can say it is part of the debt when it is paid for allready by our taxes?

      badaboomrock,

      At the growing rate of people retiring, SS won’t be there for the people behind you. It was never meant to be a retirement fund and be the only source of income for the elderly. I’m 35 and make no plans to having it when I get old because it’ll be gone, yet I pay into it just like everyone else. It may not be in the red now, but wait until all the baby boomers retire. Rand explains this perfectly

    Good grief! You can’t stop the debt ceiling from being raised after the fact. Ron Paul, you are again sensationalizing to the mentally challenged. And the worst part of it is, you know damn well what you’re doing.

    And for that reason Ron Paul, you will be my president!

      I suppose you are a federal employee. Who, other than those living on govt cheese, would want govt employees to be so overly compensated and want the federal payrolls to be so bloated when most of the “services” are simply counterproductive.?

      instead of just running your mouth off Michael, why don’t you take a position and explain it?

      So we should raise the debt limit ad infinitum? Why don’t we just run the presses 24/7 and give everyone $1m each. Infinite money. Then everyone can pay for all their health care / retirement needs.
      We should debase the US$ through QE-100?

      And all these economic policies have worked wonders since the $2.5 trillion balance sheet of the Fed has decreased unemployment to 5%?

        Lol…now that is more like it…the wise posts from LIbertarian777…The best way to show the ignorance of liberal policies is to go beyond their numbers to demonstrate how ridiculous they are…I often joke when liberals bring up minimum wage and suggest raising it….if they think it should be $9/hr, I ask them why not $20…if 9 is good, is not 20 better? Or, when BUsh tried his stupid, ill-fated stimulus, I suggested to a liberal that he should have given everyone a million dollars…

        the point is $1 of deficit spending weakens the dollar as proportionately as $100,000,000,000,000 does in the exact same manner…

        Finally, a comment about social security. In 2011, it will finally take in less than it pays out…and will do so for an extended unlimited future…it is broke and needs to be phased out…the obligations need to be paid from the sale of government assets and, if more is needed, from printing money (as distasteful as that is…) and, the debt that is most often quoted does NOT include SS

    the first corporations started after the civil war. Abraham Lincoln actually warned that we would have our first corporations forming from this that would start to lobby congress and start changing it from capitalism to fascim, which is the merger of state and corporate power. In 1913 right after the federal reserve was created you had the first big corporations. The fed is not owned by the us goverment as the public are lead to believe. The president is told by the cartel who to appoint as chairman of the federal reserve, like Paul Vocker former head of federal reserve (member of Trilateral Commision, Cfr, and bilderberg group, and Alan Greenspan(member of Trilateral Commision, cfr, and bilderber group. The us goverment borrows money or rather credit from the fed and taxpayers pay the intrests that swells the profits of the pivate banks that make up the federal reserve system. the fed prints the money and gives it to the us treasury at 6 percent intrest, and the goverment spends more than it recieves from the fed and is in debt to it
    2/3 of the money you spend in taxes goes to the federal reserve to pay the intrest on the money the goverment borrows, and only 1/3 goes to goverment.
    If you look at a american banknote it will say federal reserve note- This note is legal tender for all debts public and private. The federal reserve is a private cartel of banks and yet the american paper currency is called a federal reserve note. The rothschild cabel owns the dollar as it owns sterling and the rest. Indeed the paper money is worth nothing backed by nothing, and means nothing more than iou.

      british banknotes promise to pay the bearer on demand of the sum of whatever the note is said to be worth. If the money was actually worth nothing, the note we hand over would pay the debt, and would not just be a promise to pay. That would make it an IOU-which is what it is. Our money only buys something because we think it worth something. It is like a counterfiet note that has purchasing power only until somewone holds it to the light to see it is fake. The policies of the central bank are coordinated by the bank of international settlements formed in 1930 and its associated network. The banks charter drafted at the international bankers confrence, and the bis is based in switzerland one of the most important centers of the financial web. That is why Switzerland is never attacked in enginnered wars.
      The bank of international settlements interlocks with the european central bank, world bank, imf, wto, and others to form the iron grip that controls global finance and trade, and therefore the choice and opportunities of people and countries. Goverments are at the mercy of the financial system, and of course the bankers control the goverments.

        Today the global financial nexus is coordinated by central banks in almost evrey country. These appear to be working independently but in fact are working together to a common end. The rothschild controlleed bank of England chartered by the black nobility William of orange in 1694 has been a central manipulater in this web, and now the rothschild-controlled privately owned Federal reserve in the us is a highly significant player. Ironically, the federal reserve is neither federal nor has any reserve. The bankers and politicians met at a place called Jekyll Island in Georgia in 1910 to plot their strategy to impose the federal reserve, and among them was senator Nelson Aldrich, the grandfather of Nelson Aldrich Rockefeller, the four times mayor of new york, and the vice president under President ford.
        Adrich’s dauther Abby was married to Jhon d Rockeffeler Jr. For years after the meeting on Jeckell Island the educaters, commentators, and historians denied that it even took place. In 1902 the Rothschilds sent one of their agents Paul Warburg to America with his brother Felix to rearrange us banking to suit Rothschild. Another brother Max Warburg stayed at home in Frankfurt Germany to run the family banking buisness there. Max was a director of the chemical giant Ig farben that funded Hitler and ran the Auschwitz concentration camps, and paul was director of farbens american division. After arriving in the us Paul Warburg married Nina loeb, of the rothschild controlled kuhn, Loeb and company while Felix married Frieda Schiff, the dauther of Jacob Shiff, the head of Kuhn, Loeb, and Co, and the guy who helped to fund the russian revolution. When jacob shiff arrived in america to join Khun, loeb and co he married the dauther of Solomon Loeb.
        The federal reserve bill known as the Aldrich bill was passed in 1913 and american debt has soared ever since, just as it was meant to. The federal reserve system is a private cartel of banks of which the bank of new york is the most powerful.
