    God bless you Ron Paul. You are a shining beacon of truth in the face of these phony politicians and talking heads. I would gladly take a bullet for you any day.

    I want a president that won't let their religion affect their policy or involve religion in there presidency in any way (at least as far as policy making goes).

    I wouldn't run on a compaign based around fairy tales, you know, saying we need to get eggs off of walls because of Humpty Dumpty 3:16.....

    Why would I vote for someone that is against gay marriage because they think their fairy tale book (the Bible) is against it

    You got it right, Romney is a Huge Stuffed Shirt Douche Bag. Bachman is a Talking Points done nothing Bitch, Herman Kain is a great Business man - that would fail worse then Obama on Foreign Policy, Santorium is a Big Mouth "Look at Me type" that would spend too much time worring about unborn babys, and the rest of them other then Dr. Ron Paul are not even worth mentioning. I say Ron Paul won the debate, the Bachman was given the victory based on Replublican Retoric, 2012.

    Tax-breaks for the wealthy have never been higher, and our holy "job creators" are still sitting on their bailouts (and using them to corrupt the republican party).

    Unemployment is climbing because we ARE shrinking the fed.

    None of these ignoramuses have an economic plan that differs from Obama's current policy.

    The "Job Creators" will continue to sit on their funds, even after stealing our bailout$, but we can always count on those who need food and shelter (and the occasional alcoholic beverage) to spend into the GNP and increase consumerism.

    Everyone knows who the class act was.

    While almost everyone else bickered back and forth with this one and that one...
    There was only one individual who stuck to the Big Issues.

    Ron Paul injects Real issues, every time, and is the classiest one among all the candidates by far.

    The other candidates are all like our current zinc pennies. They sound dull when you drop them on a hard surface.

    Dr. paul is the only 90% copper penny among them, his message rings out like a pre 1981 penny does when you drop it. =)

    (That's the ring of truth I hear)

    Anyone with an ounce of integrity, and the smallest love for the truth will know that Ron Paul has stood for the people his entire political career. His record would stand against any politician in history as one that defends the Constitution. He has been proven right over and over again on economic issues, understands that small government is the best for all of us, and for the world, speaks the truth when idiotic bills come forth from the beast, and essentially could turn this country around in short order if We, the People, stand with him and support the return to a true Republic, and educate the ignorant mob that blindly follows lies and propaganda. The world depends on our freedoms remaining, and on our defending the Constitution fully. republicfortheunitedstates.org

    What is funny that I've seen this evening, no 'Christian' or 'Republican' has quoted the bible: "Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God."

    Man made governments are doomed to fail. Ron Paul is the closest to person to tell the truth about how things are done in Washington. Everyone else puts on their fake party color and pretends to tow the line and know it all.

    No matter who is elected the next few years, us humans will have to strike out against the powers-that-be to fight for our voice. America is the most armed country in the world when it comes to her citizens. I feel sorry for the authorities whom orders strikes against their own kind due to 'insurrection'.

    It will make every war look pale in comparison.

      The Romans 13 reference, is referring to the powers in the body of the church, the church leadership, i.e. Evangelists, Pastors, Teachers, Apostles, Prophets, etc...not to the rulers set up by evil men, like Roman Emperors who put Christians in the arena with lions to be torn apart. We are told to pray for the leaders, and we are also told that where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

        I must ask you to rethink your position, my friend.

        It says "let EVERY SOUL be subject to the higher powers". They cannot be the higher powers and be subject to the higher powers at the same time. If the church leaders have souls then they too are subject to the "higher powers", therefore we must look elsewhere for defining "higher powers".

        Good luck in your search for truth.

    It was painful for me to watch the debate tonight. Painful for the following reasons:

    It looked as though Paul had no intention to look for the right opportunities to speak when there were obvious opportunities to do so. He should have interjected, cut in like other candidates did. It was Newt G. who actually scored important points. And those points were Dr. Paul's !!! It was Newt who interjected, decried the super congress as unconstitutional to the audience's applause, not Paul! Where was Paul?

    On the economy it was Bachman who was allowed a reply to Santorum's schooling Dr. Paul on economics, not Paul.

    Often we complain about mainstream media not reporting enough on the good doctor. These debates offer an invaluable chance for Ron Paul to seek opportunities to talk directly to the national audience in a way that would set him apart. Tonight, he was politely looking absent and would not have talked at all, it seems, if not for a few questions and the last attack by Rick Santorum.

    Dr. Paul needs to show that he's a leader and not just a philosopher. He needs to LEAD in the debates showing a clear difference between him and the rest of the field. Like Newt G. did tonight. He did not wax philosophic - he expressed his opinions in a simple and clear way. ("super congress is a horrible, unconstitutional idea") Using the debates' forum to get your message out is a strategy. I wish Dr. Paul would realize that!

    Tonight he was just waiting to be attacked. With the performance like he had tonight he will not convince the country to vote for him. The ideal candidate is one who has the message and knows how to effectively communicate it to the masses!

      How many years does RP have to run and have absolutely no impact whatsoever on the race before you stop throwing your money down the toilet? Or is the truth that you just love the circus that is RP and could care less about true reform? RP is about being the sideshow(and taking your money), not getting results.

In your warped world, Ron Paul would be getting government subsidies for voluntarily educating the uneducated. Ron Paul is clearly leading in all aspects of popular opinion in this country we call the USA!

    I don't often agree with Noot the Grinch, but Fox's format has always left something to be desired. More like a reality show than a debate, moderators can do whatever they please, chuckling at their own questions, gotcha rules. Can you get that through congress? HAH, what's it matter if it has to be done to restore sanity to our monetary system? It has to be done and so it shall! Ron Paul 2012!

    Ron Paul complains of an overreaching and all to powerful government on one hand, yet on the other brags of being in this government for 38 years? That is hypocrisy at it's finest, and I'm stunned that none of his cult followers have called him on it, or been called on it themselves.

        No, I fault him for moaning about the status quo, when you don't get more status quo than 38 years on the job. And for a political lifer, he sure has been ineffective at "tirelessly" changing this mess of a government as you put it.

        The bottom line is he is running for president for his own selfish agenda, and has absolutely no chance of winning. They just need to play the clown horn when he speaks at these debates, because that's what he is.

    Don't get me wrong...I AM A RON PAUL person like the rest...Congressman Paul has to quit the "fumbling" of his answers and start being "direct" with his ideas and comments...I would have loved Ron Paul saying something like "let's cut the crap...here's what's going on in our country and around the world..." and just get to the point...MOST people feel like you and I and all Ron Paul has to do is be a bit more agressive and firm on hi stance (whatever that might be)...The ideas are there...He just has to quit being so nice sometimes :)

    Ron Paul won the debate hands down, he is the only candidate that has consistently stood firm on the same principles of liberty & constitutional government.

    I like a Paul/Bachman ticket, or perhaps a Paul/Cain ticket. Cain has very good business sense & business ideas.

    I made the mistake of voting for Obama in the last election, it won't happen again.

  29. for whom the bell tolls

    I'm constantly amazed at Dr Paul's patience. (pardon the pun lol) It has to be so difficult being the smartest man in the room and listening to buffoons who know absolutely nothing about monetary policy, The US Constitution, The Bill of Rights, The Declaration of Independence, fiat currency (I'd be amazed if any of the other candidates even understands what that is lol) and what limited government is all about. It's remarkable he doesn't beat them over the head with books none of them have read about economics and non-interventionist foreign policy. The simple fact of the matter is Dr Ron Paul is the only man amongst the candidates qualified to be President of the United States. The rest wouldn't be qualified to run my company lol. Go get em Ron.

      Wow... You're enlightened.

      You show your ignorance and lack of knowledge. Ron Paul is a man of integrity and stands for the truth. Spreading lies and slander (Ron Paul is not a wingnut, racist, stupid, silly, or a bastard) just shows how low some people will stoop to discredit him. Calling him names when you obviously know nothing about him shows how much integrity you have.
