We’ve been volted!
Bottom line: The entirety of the debacle America is in, that those opposed to Ron Paul claim he could potentially cause, has nothing to do with Ron Paul. Did Ron Paul spend us into oblivion? Did Ron Paul allocate our military to the over 900 military bases worldwide? Is Ron Paul in cahoots with Wall Street? Did Ron Paul cause the need for bailouts, and was he subsequently in support of them? Did Ron Paul cause the mortgage crisis? Unemployment? Spare us all you smear campaigners. We’re onto you.
Seems that only one candidate actually listens to the news, and Ron Paul is acknowledging the problems. Since the majority wish to ignore the dishonesty and theft which has been going on, the plunder will continue to destroy the United States, and no one will stop it. The national parks and other public treasures and trusts will be sold to foreign holders of the dollar, and the USA will never recover a “the buck stops here” policy ever again. What a crying shame, as constitution is jettisoned!
Democrats don’t refute, they state.
Independents for Ron Paul.

The other candidates can not speak the truth like Ron Paul can.
The demopubs and republicrats are equally useless in our current government. Ron Paul is the only real solution and he doesn’t fit in with either of these clubs. I don’t understand why Tom is playing the dem/repub argument when that’s not RP’s thing. It’s not about right/left, it’s about what’s right and wrong. Republicans used to be about smaller government but not anymore. Now it’s all the same, regardless of what their campaign promises or party might be.
The more and more I hear of who Ron Paul is being treated like shit by media and both parties without evidence he’s a bad guy I feel he might be the only one who isn’t in on the scam the gov is doing to our currency and liberties Ron Paul’s stock is growing with me the more I hear about the guy
Let me make a correction… A site other than the one listed at the end of the video, I don’t trust the speaker due to reasons listed above. Anyone can write anything on their own website. I would like examples that all this would really work.
It would be a lot better for people who are learning about this candidate, like myself if the speaker was not so condescending and smug in his mannerisms while discussing the candidate. It really makes you feel like this is yet another puffed up deception campaign that will get someone in office just so they can do what they want to do anyway. I agree with some of what Ron Paul has said but not everything. The speaker on the video left a bad taste in my mouth, and I am really not sure if Mr. Paul is a candidate that will fix the problems our country faces or just another smoke and mirrors scare-fest. I would like to see some references on the things being stated. This is not an attack, simply a concerned voter wanting to learn more about the candidate without the political talk show atmosphere that seems to have perverted the political system in this country. Is anyone aware of such a place that lists these types of statements along with a factual reference that backs them up?
Unless you are under 30, you are well entrenched in SS and don’t want to be ripped off for all the money you ALREADY paid into it.
Ron Paul has said that if he were elected president, he would like to rid America of social security. However, he inserts a caveat in saying he would begin with social security opt-out opportunities for the young, so they do not have to pay into a failing system. He states that he would put transitions in place to slowly cut spending in multiple areas. Social Security would not be one of the immediate programs on the chopping block for Paul. He indicates that militaristic spending and interventionist policies would cut first, perhaps providing stabilizing funds for Social Security. Even if some money were transferred from exorbitant DOD/ NSA budgets to support SS, Paul would still be very able to fulfill his campaign to reduce the deficit. You also have to take the young into account (I’m 21), because we are the future and are so carelessly overlooked by most candidates (the majority of whom are white, male, and OLD). Sure, you don’t want to be ripped off for the money YOU paid into social security, but the youth don’t want to be responsible for paying off those over 30 when the program fails. People must understand that there are now more older people now than there are young, and the system cannot be supported by the minority (unless we are talking about the top 1% earners).
Ron Paul has said that if he were elected president, he would like to rid America of social security. However, he has said there are some programs that he would preserve, because he realizes that sudden, overarching change has the potential to cause governmental elements to collapse. He advocates social security opt-out opportunities for the young, so they do not have to pay into a failing system. He states that he would rapidly slash spending in some areas, such as Dept. of Defense/ Homeland security (imperialistic militarism devices of economic/social elites). Social Security would not be one of the immediate programs on the chopping block for Paul, who instead advocates the transitional ‘phasing-out’ of other non-constitutional, non-essential programs such as Social Security. Given the large cuts Paul plans to make in regard to foreign policy, he would also have some lee-way to prop up programs that may fail in the near future, yet still be able to make good on his campaign promises to reduce the national debt (to the Federal Reserve).
TO christo930 — You gave us the position of those over 30, who correctly believe in their intrinsic right to draw from a social security program they have already paid into. However, the more wizened cannot disregard the youth (I’m 21), because we are the future – i.e. we will take care of your ass when you no longer can – and are so carelessly overlooked by most candidates (the majority of whom are white, male, and OLD = disconnect). Sure, you don’t want to be ripped off for the money YOU paid into social security, but the youth don’t want to be responsible for paying off those over 30 when the program fails. People must understand that there is now a higher proportion of old to young in the American population, and the current system is unsustainable for our generation and our kids’ generation.

I like this guy; He actually breaks it down in a simple way so all can understand, if they choose to not ignore the TRUE FACTS!
