    Why not start a youtube channel where users send in “why I support Ron Paul” videos and each video contains one reason or proof that mainstream media doesnt want him to be elected!

    Im going to start this but I need help!

    MESSAGE ME!
    WE THE PEOPLE WILL ELECT HIM!

    There started a brush fire in a few people’s minds, and as time went more people started to wake up. Now the fire is raging in the hearts and minds of people everywhere, Liberty and freedom has awoken. People have started to reject paper money and turn back to gold and silver and the movement is getting bigger. We must put the government back in shackles and free ourselves from their ability to confiscate our wealth and transfer it to the hands of a few

    Ron Paul understands economic and monetary issues (Not to mention US History) better than any other candidate. I’m interested in who he would pick for a running mate. I think it’s possible for him to win the presidency, even if he has to be written in.

    The only reason Rick Perry is entering the race is to take votes away from Ron Paul. Just Another story to talk about,besides the story of Dr. Paul winning almost every national poll by a landslide. He is the best man for the job,and that is why he is getting no love or support from the media.All we can do is have faith that our vote still counts for something.And if it does? Dr. Paul will wipe the floor with obama in a debate.

    Ron Paul for President and Jessie Ventura for Vice-President. Man! What a dream team. Ron has superior common sense and beneficial ideas. Jessie has the muscle to slap Congress straight. If only this miracle of a team could come true….

    The new world order controls the outcomes of the primaries, corporate fascists. If they let real deomcracy happen, he would win the primaries, and win the presidency. The new world order (corporate fascism), will not let real democracy happen, they will fix the primaries and not let Ron Paul run for president.

    maybe they were stopping to think before they acted like fools. Sometimes restraint is a good response.

    No he isn’t, but he is better than he was 3 years ago. IMHO politics should be about the words in your mouth instead of how white the teeth in your mouth are.

    What were there 12 candidates participating in the Straw Poll? And only one of them brings anything to the table besides pandering to subsections of the base. Bachmann, Romney, Pawlenty, and Santorum stand before you and regurgitate the same tired slogans of fear, bigotry, and continuing policies that over decades have brought our nation to where it is now. Ron Paul will show you volumes of history that proves that we can and will go off the ledge both socially and economically if we continue it. This nation isn’t in a situation of “better than it seems” and everything won’t be alright if we continue… this catastrophe is real and was foreseeable. Ron Paul said 30+ years ago we would be here because world history shows that if we do these things then this would be the result. We did them and we are here just like every empire of the past.

    This nation is in disastrous debt and Rick Santorum wants to go to war with yet another Boogey Man. Michelle Bachmann and Rick Perry also favors war based on fear and supposition but also wants the laws of the land to favor Protestant Christianity and if you are Catholic, Muslim, or even Atheist… well you have to go against your core being because it’s the law. Is that America? Not the way that past men of faith named Jefferson, Adams, Washington, Payne, and others saw it when they gave us this nation for all.

    If you see and hear logic backed by historical precedence and cry “Crazy”, who is the crazy one?

    I’ve never seen such a brain dead crowd. I guess Paul didn’t spark them up with MSM talking points.

    Big business and the corrupt status in Washington are really afraid of Ron Paul, because he is the truth. The brainwashing of our government is being eroded by Ron Paul. Vote Ron Paul in 2012, for yourself, your family, and your country!

    And the results mean: Ron Paul can’t even beat the Bawwwkman, one of the other wackjobs. It’s over Ronnie, it’s time to be put out to pasture.

    I saw waay more Ron Paul supporters there than anyone, and they were the only ones that seemed to actually know what their candidate stood for. And that’s probably because he was the only one there who actually stood for something.

    Most of the people who I have met and heard trying to dismiss Ron Paul are either bandwagoners who dismiss him because the media tells them to and they want to feel smart for going along with everyone else, or they have focused on one thing the man said and taken it totally out of context because they either don’t understand liberty, or hope that the people they’re talking to don’t understand it well enough to see that Ron is right.

    Before I was a Libertarian, I was a Conservative and I thought the things this man was saying were crazy too, but then I actually started to listen and learn. Not to Ron Paul, but to the founding fathers, to historians, and to other Libertarians. When I viewed the things Ron Paul said from the standpoint of liberty, I could no longer find any fault with it. Every bit of it is logical and right. Furthermore, everything that is wrong with our government, on the Liberal or Conservative side is a direct result of doing the things this man is against.

    If you hate Ron Paul, and hate what he stands for, at least make a real argument, and not this strawman, ad hominem crap. Educate yourself, learn what freedom actually is and why we have it, and then come back here and tell us that giving up a little freedom for a little comfort isn’t a slippery slope, and that the government should get to legislate morality, and that the government should diminish all of our freedoms because we’re afraid some people might act irresponsibly.

    In other words, if you have a real argument to make it, then make it and we’ll be happy of the debate. But if you’re just a troll looking to insult someone out of a misdirected desire to lash out, go bother someone else equally superficial. You’re pretty much just going to get dismissed here anyway.

    I’m agree with about 90% of what Ron Paul has to say, unfortunately i don’t live in Iowa. I think the ‘hill he has to climb’ tho is a tough one though. While his observations and conclutions are correct, in my option, it takes alot of ‘background’ information to explain them to someone who has not observed the symptoms and problems of our broken economy. My excitement for the Ron Paul campaign comes not necessarily from Ron Paul, but from seeing a growing number of my fellow voters taking the time to study our nations problems and derive conclusions of the best courses of action. I forget who said it but to paraphrase “A democracy can only exist in the presence of educated voters.” For many decades now times have been wonderful, plentiful. This bountiful economy allowed voters the luxury of ignoring government and politics, and focus on their own personal lives. However just like an unsupervised kindergarden class, our government has gotten itself into problems that it can not get out of without the ‘adults’ (in this case the citizens) getting involved. I’m not sure if Ron Paul will win, but I do get very excited and optimistic to see his campaign coming to the mainstream. And his message has not changed, its the voters that have. For me this is the most critical, and exciting thing Ron Paul has brought to the campaign.
