    when the free market fucks you, you pay too much for your phone bill. When the government fucks you, you pay for foreign wars, welfare for illegal immigrants and foreign states, and the TSA... who now tells you to bend over and REALLY take it.

    I love Ron Paul but the free market does not care who it fucks over. Government has to mediate somehow.

    Lift the massive restrictions on nuclear energy! There is so much potential there if the government didn't keep getting in the way. Ironically they also subsidize nuclear power to a large extent and they should get rid of that too.
    Ron Paul for President 2012!

    With the amount of money we spend running a global military empire; we could finance the construction of 700 giant (mile wide) wind turbines and 3,000 ft tall solar towers each year in America. The U.S. could be energy independent in ten years-- all that is missing is the will.
    We also need to be looking ahead at the massive building projects of the 22nd century-- changing the face of the Earth; building a new great lake just East of the Rockies to generate rain.

    I don't support subsidizing private market projects-- but I support the idea that the gov't can/should be building the Hoover dams of the 21st century, since the private market will not. The private market is not interested in free and never ending wind or solar energy. The fed gov't can do things like purchase 100 million small wind turbines and send them to power companies to install on all of their power and light poles, giving the grid a boost of electricity.

    This guy is ridiculous... we need Ron Paul to be president. Might be our last hope for the country. If you support Ron Paul and our generous and want to contribute to his campaign, now's a good time. Goto his main website at ronpaul.com. Time's running out really fast.

    Yea, Ron Paul, End the Federal Reserve. CFR you are a bunch of satanic morons. How do you like those apples. What, do you need a pacifier to keep you going and make sure that you are all right in your demented minds? I love the Internet because it is your worst nightmare.

    Americas founding fathers were a bunch of genocidally racist, homeophobic, women oppressing, slave owning aristocrats who decided that only their social class could vote.

    America was never libertarian, libertarianism is immoral, and Ron Paul has an archaic and obscure interpretation of the constitution

    If anyone would like to debate these points in an intelligent fashion I will gladly oblige.

    When Americans finally wake up and start to understand that what they need is socially responsible government, that's when the lot of the people will change.

    Americans are afraid of socially responsible government because they are told it's akin to socialism. And they continue to buy it hook, line, and sinker. What all first world countries take for granted as their piece of the pie, Americans shun because they have had their heads shrunk and have been indoctrinated into believing that big business will do what's right. And ron paul is part of the scam. Fukk the ridiculous constitution, it's only being interpreted and lauded on ordinary people in a manner in which it helps to prolong the big con job.

    But the learning has begun! I would predict maybe another ten years before the people start getting it right. The tea party could have been a start but stupid people who support it were hijacked by the Koch brothers.

    The awakening has just been suspended again for ten years or so.

    Wakey-wakey boys and girls!

    The oil companies inhibit the energy industry. They buy up new technology that makes the US less dependent upon oil and bury the technology. So long as the US is dependent on oil, the US can not possibly establish energy independence. US simply does not produce enough oil. If US is going to establish energy independence, the govt must stop oil companies from purchasing patents and burying the technology that can allow US to reduce oil consumption. There is no libertarian solution to this.

    I wonder if Ron Paul would support a policy that removed the income tax for only those people who have had an abortion.

    Well isn't that just peachy! Ron Paul wants to remove all taxation from big oil. Which is really just the same as subsidizing big oil. And of course Ron Paul makes no secret of the fact that he would remove all taxation from all the other big corporations.

    What's really great about that is that all the lemmings who support him don't want to ever stop and consider where the tax burden is going to fall if Ron got his way. But no worry, if Ron Paul didn't have a bunch of stupid lemmings as his followers he would have nobody. Thank the gods that ron paul is rapidly slipping back in the polls and will soon be nothing more than a bad wet dream.

      A subsidy takes money from taxpayers and gives it to a special interest group. A tax break reduces or eliminates the amount of money an entity pays to the government.
      You are very right to ask who will bear the tax burden if not big businesses and I have to say that I would sooner see struggling American middle class working families receive tax breaks than big business.
      However, I really do believe that we could significantly reduce the size of government. This would amount to a tax cut for everyone and would reduce the total tax burden. As far as I can understand, this is a central plank to Ron Paul's campaign.

    RON PAUL IS LEADING HANNITY'S GOP POLL! On the guys website that does not even acknowledge Dr. Paul. Google his sight and do the poll too. This is friggin hilarious. The pussy Hannity get his as kicked by Ron Paul every time he interviews him. Hannity is an elitist or thinks he is. He is a pawn of the networks. Don't listen to his shit or better yet so you understand the opposition.

    There still a chance for the USA to pay up their national debt. We got a lot of GOLD in Fort Knox. We use those gold to pay up our nation debt.

    The economy is not "continuing in a downward spiral." The economy expanded at an annualized real rate of 1.9% in Q1 2011. Gross private domestic investment increased 12.4% from the proceeding period. Look up "Table 1.1.1. Percent Change From Preceding Period in Real Gross Domestic Product " on Google. Ron Paul is a liar.
