    Oh, it ended. It ended when there weren’t enough liberals changing parties. It ended when the American people spoke and did not like the ideas Paul brought to the table. It ended when Paul’s own SON left his election bid and backed Romney. So it’s not a never ending debate. It’s just one that you can’t win.

    I dont agree, but I wont keep on about it, because this is turning into a never ending argument.

    You’re wrong. Legalization would make the drug problem worse. Those that are already addicts would be inclined to do more and worse drugs. Those that are not already addicted would have to battle peer pressure and the wonderful thought of say Methamphetamine would make them feel. There would be MORE drug addicts. MORE overdoses and more money spent paying the drug cartels. No thanks. If that’s your idea of prosperity, check again. Wikipedia is notoriously wrong about so many things.

    legalization would end the deadly, billion dollar drug war overnight, which benefits the banks, who profit from money laundering, think drug addicition should be viewed as a health issue, not a crime..the CIA has been running drugs for a long time as well and the prison industrial complex makes a lot of money with prisoners, why do you think 25% of the world incarcerated population is in america, mostly drug related offenses..I got the troop numbers from wikipedia, may or may not be right..

    So you think that legalizing every drug would get people to stop using them? Are you serious? But according to research, there is NOT 172, 966 troops abroad. There is 242,986 troops in 150 different countries. So your facts are wrong. That would add up to about 75 new bases we’d have to build. Now how much do you think that would cost? Most bases spread the world over are cheaper than the bases we have or would have to build here. It’s no wonder why Paul didn’t make the cut.

    Ron was boo´d by some because of the ignorance and the arrogance of some americans, who are drinking the status quo kool aid and getting brainwashed, by the establishment..there are currently, 172, 966 active duty troops overseas, I seriously doubt there would no room for them and the U.S would save billions on spending, by closing all bases worldwide and bringing the troops home..

    In the end, Paul placed 4th behind Gingrich, Santorum and Romney. Paul never stood a chance and this was obvious with the amount of boo’s he received during the debates. Noone agreed with his rhetoric about making all drugs legal, bringing all out troops home (which by the way, we wouldn’t even have room for) and that would have cost us several BILLIONS of dollars if not a trillion for new bases and places for our troops to rest. He never stood a chance.

    the corporate media was blowing up the other candidates and the sheeple were probably buying it..when Ron was in like 3rd place, they didnt even put him on the list, with the other candidates, what does that tell you..

    Well you are right and you are wrong. You are right about the fact that that’s how nobama was reelected. You are wrong though about Paul being ignored. He was low in the polls. So why give him a ton of attention? It takes away from the candidate that had the most support. He was just as much a part of the debates as every other candidate. The America people made their decision and it wasn’t Paul.

    yes, the corporate media took attention way from Paul, by ignoring him and focused on the status quo candidates, so Paul was blacked out and there is vote fraud as well..probably why Obama won again..

    Now that it’s been so long, do you believe the same thing you did at the time? Since he was NOT the nominee due to the VAST majority of Americans no wanting what he had to offer, That he was still right? Did you then vote for our first muslim president because you didn’t get your way?

    they said Iraq had nukes and that was a massive lie and that military intervention has cost america like 4 trillion dollars, the death of thousands of americans soldiers in Iraq & Afghanistan, thousands seriously injured, over a milllion iraqis were killed,
    (with civilians, children), tell me that is not genocide..Iran will probably be the next victim, so the big corporations can make a huge bank, with these wars of profit, as there is much oil for the take in the middle east..

    So then we should allow genocide in other nations? We should allow Iran (the largest sponsor of terrorism in the world) to get nuclear weapons? Which by the way would most definately end up in the hands of terrorist organizations. But you’re telling me you’d be ok with that. That, my friend is called anarchy.

    would call it neo-isolationism, where you dont get involved with other nations, because you resent them, dislike them, dissaprove of them, when you could attempt to establish, diplomatic, commercial relations, with other nations.

    Paul wants to bring all our troops home from strategically placed bases all over the world. We wouldn’t even have the room for all our troops coming home. He wants to cut funding to our allies, mainly Israel. Just what would you define as isolationist? Because that is the very definition of it.

    Yes it could be worse. We have enough issues as it is with Obama. With Paul as President, he would only make things worse.

    I have watched the debates in full, I just watch the Ron Paul highlights, because for me he speaks wisdom and good sense, I believe he is also very trustworthy and very credibile and I think people who boo Ron Paul are in bad denial, because they think america has no blame whatsoever in causing conflict, problems, that most often backfire..

    Well fortunately, I don’t watch Youtube video highlights of the debates. I actually watched every debate in full. Paul was even boo’d 3 times for what he believes in which clearly showed that the American people don’t want what he has to offer. Therefor, nothing I said is distorted in any way. But I would suggest you watch the debates in full as well. You can watch them all here: .2012presidentialelectionnews . com/2012-debate-schedule/2011-2012-primary-debate-schedule/

    no disrespect, but some of things you point out are incorrect and distorted..if you watch all of Ron Paul debate highlights on youtube, he does explain his reasons and other candidates like to make him look bad, especially on foreign policy, because he doesnt support the status quo.

    Make our military stronger. Keep drugs illegal so we don’t have a swarm of drug addicts robbing others to support thier habit. Shutting the border down for good. Keeping marriage between one man and one woman. Not backing down from nations like Iran, which by the way are the largest sponsor of terrorism. Not being an isolationist nation. Not turning our back on our allies. Everything opposite of what Paul stands for. Don’t forget that even before the election, Rand Paul was supporting Romney.

    Honestly it still surprise me that it takes so little amount of observation to come to Ron Paul’s conclusion. It’s no wonder 435 people can’t come to his conclusion, because they don’t even observe yet understand what is going on in America and the world it seems.
