    If conservatives were smart they would vote Ron Paul because out of all the candidates he is the best bet to beat Obama.

    I can't see why all the so called experts on Washington can't come to a consensus on the logical and obvious. Like increasing revenue by letting the bush cuts expire. These are all seemingly logical common sense approaches to a solution and I can't see how any one to argue with them.

    If that drives the unemployment rate down to an exceptable figure then the govt can start to concentrate on debt reduction and savings. We've already heard that we can decrease the military presence abroad and reduce defense spending.

    Once ppl are working and spending and sum growth is happening the work on getting some insensitives in place to inspire job creation from the private sector and small business here in the states.

    Don't know if I totally agree with ron Paul there. I'm left leaning but I like Mr ron Paul's authenticity and I like sum of his policy but I don't think u can solve all our problems with cuts. May its something to look at after getting things on track but I think sum spending has to be done to create jobs now because the private sector isn't. At least not at a significant rate.

    So let me get this straight. You want to centralize power in the hands of a few, while having the population led like sheep by the media. With this new "super congress" and politicians who deftly manipulate the mass media to tell us how to think, that is the exact problem that we face today. No, America simply needs to wake up. And it is happening, despite your propaganda.

    Do Americans not realize how truly scary this super congress is and the path we are on?

    If Americans don't make Ron Paul the next President they better not whine or cry about what happens to this country. Ron Paul has the best chance of beating Obama but more importantly he has the solutions that will really help America.

    "Reporter: Why is it unconstitutional?

    Ron Paul: Reneging on our responsibilities and giving it to a small number of people, authority that the Congress should have."

    WRONG!

    It is Un-Constitutional because there is no provision in the Constitution that allows a "Super-Congress."

    I would say that "Super-Congress" violates the doctrine of MARBURY v. MADISON, 5 U.S. 137 (1803).

    "Thus, the particular phraseology of the constitution of the United States confirms and strengthens the principle, supposed to be essential to all written constitutions, that a law repugnant to the constitution is void, and that courts, as well as other departments, are bound by that instrument.

    The rule must be discharged."

    http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/scripts/getcase.pl?navby=case&court=us&vol=5&page=137

    "Super-Congress" or in the creation of of one, our representatives have exceeded any authority granted to them by the Constitution.

    From 1790 (these principles have not changed, it is WE THE PEOPLE who give the Constitution it's authority) Pennsylvania Constitution:

    "ARTICLE IX.

    That the general, great and essential principles of liberty and free government may be recognized and unalterably established, we declare,

    Sect. 1. That all men are born equally free and independent, and have certain inherent and indefeasible rights, among which are those of enjoying and defending life and liberty, of acquiring, possessing and protecting property and reputation, and of pursuing their own happiness.

    Sect. 2. That all power is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority, and instituted for their peace, safety and happiness: For the advancement of those ends they have, at all times, an unalienable and indefeasible right to alter, reform or abolish their government, in such manner as they may think proper. ..."

    Our Congress are a bunch of dumbed-down Constitutional illiterates run by Wall Street's Criminal Racketeers.
