    I honestly bet that Paul could kick Perrys ass if he pushed it. Paul is in very good shape and regularly runs 10+ miles. He is quite cut. Also the only Congressman to hit a home run in their anual baseball game.

    However if Perry wants to get to threats, he is really barking up the WRONG tree. Remember Mr Perry, Paul has the support of the PEOPLE.

    I can only imagine what threat Perry barked at Paul, but he deserves a facepunch.

    Ron Paul be patient..I dont like that he was ignored once again..BUT..He whooped some ass in both MSNBC polls..Was #1 in both of them.Iam truely upset about his treatment though..Right after the debates were over,I called Time Warner and told them Iam canceling my cable,and why!!And I will not get it back any time soon..I will also write them a letter,and put in my last bill they send me..IF you guys really want to support Dr Paul,PLEASE do the same..Atleast until next year after the elections..Thats no big deal right?If we support Dr Paul,we can ALL do this,and spread the word to ALL others that support him,to do the same..They will lose millions of dollars a month..If we organize this,it will work out GREAT!!!!You could also put a little of the Ron Paul ideals to work..By using the free market for your entertainment..Internet,netflix,zoon,hulu,and what ever else..Lets do this..Im willing to talk to anyone that can organize this..Im willing to HELP!!

    The thing is, in this Election, like the last… Everyone Running except for Ron Paul, Might as well have a Hole in their Backs with a set of Strings tied to their Lips…

    And Big Banks as well as Big Business owned by those Banks are the Ones pulling the Strings.

    Pray for Ron and Pray for Liberty… Because after Ron Paul, there will never be another Congressman like Him. Because they will not allow another Congressman to ever utter the words of TRUTH again, as he has.

    Mr. Paul is one of a kind. Too bad others in Congress are such Jelly Fish Sucking Mental Midgets without Morals or Intestinal Fortitude… They’re Spineless, and have succumb to the Greed that is Fed to them by the Rich Banks and the Corporations that they own.

    Corporations have the same Rights as an Individual… That very Law is what allows them to Make Campaign Donations that would otherwise be Unlawful. Those Banks and their Corporations owned by them, have Bought most of our Congress Members, Lock Stock and Barrel, The same way they’ve Bought the Media.

    The Separation of the Legislative, Military and Judicial Branches of Power were for a very good Reason. Those days are over. The U.S. Government… That is… The Government of the 50 States of the Union… Is now a Days Dwarfed by the Ever Growing Federal Government it was meant to keep in Check.

    Ron is trying to tell us that the Federal Government has no Business Meddling in the Affairs of the 50 States, or the Laws in which those 50 States have in place. Regardless of weather it Concerns Medical Marijuana, Gay Rights, Abortion or Vaccinations, Etc. Etc…

    The time to choose the Right Man for the Job is Now… Because we certainly didn’t get it right last time.

    Mr. Perry, We’re all interested in knowing what you said to Mr. Paul during your “Pointed” Exchange. People will not Tolerate Intimidation Tactics, Unlawful Campaign Tactics, or the Threatening of Mr. Paul.

    Mr. Perry… You are a Shrinky Dink of a Man In the Face of a Great Man like Congressman Paul…

    The sooner People like you Realize… The Better… Yes, We as a republic care about Healthcare, we care about Social Security, Housing, Jobs Etc Etc…

    But what we care about Most, is our Families that we can no longer Support. What we care about Most… Is our Current Foreign and Economic Policy. These are the things we care about Most… And these are the things Mr. Paul Cares about Most.

    They are also However… The things that the rest of you Running, are focusing the LEAST… on.

    Ultimately, the greatest leaders do not actually seek to lead, but to teach. They do not seek power for themselves; they seek to empower the common man.

    Mr. Perry I dare say that you are not a Leader… And you Seek to Empower no one but yourself.

    Thank you all for your time.

    I am appalled at Rick Perry grabbing Dr. Paul and pointing his finger at him. It’s a confirmation of my immediate gut feeling about Perry — he is a sleazy snake oil salesman. I am also equally appalled at the audience when they were cheering with the snake oil salesman with glee for being the leader in state-sponsored executions. The Republican party is clearly the blood-thirsty warmonger party, both at home and abroad!!! How far we have sunk.

    I am also outraged by how Dr. Paul was virtually shut out of the debate. Dr. Paul stood there patiently over 1 1/2 hours and was asked about 4 questions. What a premeditated media set up. And if anyone doubts there is a bias, Dr. Paul had to insert himself ,after the fact ,so he could comment on a question about healthcare. Dr. Paul, who is a doctor, wasn’t even given the opportunity to comment on a subject he is the only expert on!!! I am speechless.

    I hope, Dr. Paul, that you will file a complaint against this media group and any future media sponsors and expose how they are deliberately depriving the American people of an honest debate and ultimately an honest and fair election. They are clearly afraid of the American people being given the opportunity to hear Dr. Paul and to start waking up. The media is determined to pick the candidates.

    Dr. Paul — I will be working even harder for your campaign. Keep up the great work. You have so much integrity and class. You are clearly too good for the Republican party. I think it is time to think about a third party run.

    I assume something in the following sense:

    Rick: Now listen you freedom lover libertarian proud congressman with a solid vote record! If you ever, ever, ever again get on my tails when I am trying to make up words to cover my back and lie to the stupid people of America, I will make sure you would get my favorite Ricky’s optimum justice punishment in a private basement.

    Ron: heh, you done? Now you can go back to your basement and FYS…

    Ron thinks Iran should have nuclear weapons. That’s the only thing about him that is insane. The rest of his policies I agree with. Perry is a sleaze, but he’s a very sharp sleaze. A liar, but they ALL are. Either one would be a vast improvement over the illegal chronic liar we’re stuck with now.

    But then, if Ron really had guts, he would have gone after Obama’s impeachment, arrest & conviction LONG ago.

      LOL, that is stupid, he doesn’t think they should have nuclear weapons, he just says that it’s up to them to decide whether to have them or not. That doesn’t mean he WANTS them to have one.

    My Question to Ben Bernanke regarding his answer to Ron Paul:

    I have a Question for all the Bankers, and in particular, Ben Bernanke, CEO of the Federal Reserve, who said “NO”… When asked by Ron Paul “Is Gold Money?”

    If Gold is not Money Mr. Bernanke, Then Explain to me, why a $1000.00 Dollar, Point 9999 Fine Gold, 1 Ounce Liberty Dollar Coin, Minted by Bernard von NotHaus in 2007… Is Now 4 years later… Worth $1,831 Dollars?

    Mr. Bernanke? Did you understand the Question?

    It is Clear to myself, and Everyone in this Country, that this “Competing” (not Counterfeit) Currency, has a much greater Value than your worthless Federal Dollar Bill… And if Gold is not Money, then why do you and the Federal Government Hoard it, while making it unlawful for the People to Possess in this form or that?

    You Mr. Bernanke, have a serious problem.

    One third of your problem Sir, happens to be that the Value of Gold is Determined by World Demand, and that you have no control of it. Therefore, Gold is Money, always will be Money, and will forever and ever, put your idea of Money to Shame, as it will always carry greater Value.

    The Second Part of your Problem is simply that the American People know what you’re doing to the purchasing Power of the Dollar, that you make them work so hard to earn. They know you Manipulate it at will, making them poorer by the Day, all as you sit and blame the People themselves for not spending enough, as if it’s their Fault! Be very Clear Mr. Bernanke… The People WILL have a Competing Currency of THEIR choosing… It’s simply a matter of time. Which I might add Sir… You and your Cohorts are fast running out of.

    The Third part of your Problem, is quite possibly the Strongest Name in History since Washington Himself… RON PAUL. In case you haven’t noticed Sir, Your Persistent and unrelenting grab for Power is Failing you. You no longer have the Power to control and Enforce the dwindling Value of this Country and it’s People… Because you simply cannot devalue it any more. We have nothing left… You can no Longer threaten the Congress with Martial Law if they Fail to Agree to, and Cover up your Crimes. This Republic Sir, has come out of it’s Slumber. You have awoken a Sleeping Giant… And You have already Lost this War of yours… You just don’t know it yet.

    You Mr. Bernanke, and the entire Congress should be quite careful in your Unlawful and Unconstitutional Monetary agreements… As I think it quite Possible Sir, that the People of this Country who have made you so Rich, will soon be the very People who throw Congress out on their Ear, Make Ron Paul President, and Drive you and your Mafia to the Furthest reaches of the Planet, Never to return to this Soil.

    This Country’s Dealings with you and yours… Are coming to an End.

    I guess I owe you a Certain debt of Gratitude… For if there ever comes a Revolution… It will be your doing… And no one else’s… Because You Incite Violence against the People by depriving them of the ability to gain real wealth of any kind.

    I have a great deal of Faith in my Country and it’s People Sir… That said, you can rest assured: Though you may think you control our Military and our Congress… That Military and Congress is made up of the Hearts and Minds of Men and Women who Believe in our Constitution even though you Don’t, And those People will take orders only so far before they begin to turn all of their collective might against you, and those who protect you. And those who do protect you, will only do so as long as Congress and the People allow them to do so.

    Let me break that down into laymen’s terms for you: Just because the D.O.J. and the Treasury Protect you now, it doesn’t mean they always will.

    A Legitimate Competing Currency will simply Transfer Wealth from you, Back to the People of the United States… And that Sir, you SHOULD be Afraid of.

    So… Mr. Bernanke? Do you think Gold is Money now?

    Thank you for your time.

    What does America need?
    1. A president with military experiance who is not afriad to bring home the troops and not afraid to stand up for America when we are threatened or insulted by another country. A true patriot with the God given sense to know when to go to war and not to and when we are at war, when it is time to come home.
    2. A president with a medical background to help change our health care system.
    3. A president who understands women’s right to choose and knows first hand why it is important not to send women back to the back allies and butchers.
    4. A man with enough intelligence to know that we do need our freedoms back.
    5. A man that does not say things just to please the public. He is brave enough to speak the truth if we want to hear it or not.

    What is Rick Perry saying to Dr. Paul here? Is he using his so called government power to threaten Dr. Paul like he did the state trooper that pulled him and his driver over. Then Perry went on saying he’s better than the people in his state.
    I’ll will fight for you Dr. Paul and I see the anger your beginning to harvest because they are treating the constitution like a paper that get thrown in the trash. Lets organize everyone just incase our government treats us as terrorist for defending the constitution. I live in IA, is there others that live here?
