    So what is the essence of freedom tdfisk?Is it the Patriot Act,Unwarrented searches,or being felt up while trying to bored a plane?you are right one man can’t fix all of our problems but we need a leader who is not constantly creating more problems and then lying to us about it and this is by far the best man for that job.

    I am a staunch conservative and this disturbs me almost as much as the socialists & Republicans. One man is not going to save this country and it is dangerous to elevate a person like this. Smaller government & lower taxes aren’t going to save this country. States rights aren’t going save this country. These are not the essence of freedom and liberty. Look to the formation of the Continental Congress to see what will save this country. Don’t look for a savior they will always betray you.

      Can y6u explain a little more in detail .

  • harryflocyberman

    This might sound paranoid but I believe that the system will do what is necessary to make sure that this man does not get elected.

  • harryflocyberman

    If Ron Paul is not selected as the candidate to run for President, there is no reason to vote for anyone else, because there is no lessor of two evils after that there is simply two evils belonging to the same globalist elite manifesto, we have been cheated and the media treats Ron Paul like he is invisible and a loss cause, I seen the people who support this man all over the net in the millions, it seems as if the people support this man but the system does not, it can not be trusted to be fair

    Here in Australia Ron Paul does not get a mention in any of the media when presdential candidates are covered.It is really disgusting that this sort of censorship exists in so called free countries.

  • LongLiveOx

    LOL, now show me where Perry, Romney, and all the other fake CIA actor/candidates have supporters that are this passionate. They DON’T have supporters, regardless of what the fraud mainstream media has tried to sell everyone. DON’T let the media get away with their election tampering! Call them out for their bullshit. What they are doing is CRIMINAL. They have no credibility, whatsoever. RON PAUL REVOLUTION.

  • benb

    The mainstream media has showed the public they manipulate elections by giving more attention to some than others.

    Ron Paul don’t get the same treatment and exposure as the “media’s chosen polititians”.

    The public is being minipulated by the media, by the non-reporting of democratic ideas of some, and over reporting on those whom support the mainstream lies, wars & corruption.
