  • Rick Santorum! Wish he won….The only conservative in the race..

  • Quite the contrary, how does having a military spread all throughout the world in unnecessary places and being the policemen of the world enhance how national security? How does building military bases in Korea & Germany help us? How does having all these troops in 140 countries help us? His national security strategy is incredible, depend our boarders, we have a weakened less safe defense when we exert ourselves everywhere and insight hatred around the world, Ron was in the military!


  • A rare honest politician.

  • A rare honest politician.

  • Ron Paul is a great philosopher. His problem is he doesn’t understand the importance of maintaining a strong national security and protecting our interests in the world. He is brilliant and very wise but he doesn’t realize the importance of having a strong military.

  • Ron Paul is a bad ass mother..

  • Moderator asks them all to put aside their rhetoric and slogans and rehearsed statements….but then they’d have nothing to say, so sure enough every single one of them had nothing but opportunities to follow their scripts

  • im sure as a american you can buy a gun. Do us a favor and shot yourself dead PLEASE !! Im a rasist too!! I hate mental people! Because of you and many like you – retarded idiots (but i really think you are jewish scum) jewish scum NWO taken over world !!!

  • i don’t agree with all of Ron Paul’s policies. and he’s racist. But, admittedly, he’s one of the few honest politicians. he’ll be missed in public office

  • i don’t agree with all of Ron Paul’s policies. and he’s racist. But, admittedly, he’s one of the few honest politicians. he’ll be missed in public office

  • 1:16:06 There goes crazy Uncle Ron, babbling about the unsustainability of multiple wars!

  • Also one quick thing, on the issue of gay marriage, Ron Paul had an opportunity there, to really damage the candidacy of Santorum and the others…by asking one simple question. What’s wrong with a man, who’s in love with another man…or a woman who’s in love with another woman, to be able to consummate their love by getting married. No one would’ve gave a good answer for that, any answer they would give would make them look prejudice. Paul missed a great opportunity there.

  • We can debate whether those reasons are good reasons, but those are the motivations. You can’t just see it in terms of, evil Iran wants to hurt poor Israel. And that’s all assuming Iran really does want to attack Israel, in reality, they never said they wanted to. That wipe off the map quote is a very poor translation. In any case, it’s sad to see all sides have such a narrow one sided perspective of the whole thing. Both sides need to compromise a little bit, to really end the issue.

  • All this talk about Iran and how we need to stop Iran, because they want to wipe Israel off the map. It’s a narrow perspective of the situation, the real question we should be asking is, why does Iran want to do that. Why does Iran hate Israel so much. Well they make it clear why, they don’t like Israel continuing settlements, they don’t like Israels oppression of Palestinians, and they don’t like how Israel took Palestinian land to set up the nation in the first place. That’s the reason why.
