  4. one thing that scares me the most is that RP might be the one to finalize our Death. since The globalist will threaten him and he bends to their will, then We are all Fucked. The only Way to End This Globalist is Either they come out to the public and propose their plan for us to decide yes or no, or We go kick their asses out Our Government. Either Way They must End.

  8. I like a lot of R. Paul’s ideas but he’s too fanatical, can’t win the primary. Getting rid of the FAA, FDA? Wanting PRIVATE airlines to police our skies. He needs to tone down the extremism although judging by this video it’s the extremists that are his biggest fans!

  13. I’m not American. But Ron Paul to me looks like a proper President. It’s just something about him. His image and his speeches are epic.
