    Ron Paul isn’t “beholden” to big money or big business or anyone else for that matter. There is only one thing he is “beholden” to and that would be the US Constitution. I don’t know where you are getting your information from, unless it is all just a fantasy in your mind, because you couldn’t be more wrong.

      Soon you will again realize that you have been taken to the cleaners by Ron Paul and his whacko libertarian ramblings. On the upside of this, he won’t be back to do you all again. And then you can all start over again, fulfilling the agenda of the Repub. right that keeps you where they want you. Powerless and harping on about the freedom ideas that serve their purposes. Pay attention now:As long as they can instill those nondescript ‘freedom’ ideas into your skulls, you will be powerless to help yourselves. Help yourselves to real freedom that is. think about that for a while and stop your stupid lemming like behavior.

        @grayrough Lemming Like behavior…..sorry my friend but that sounds more like you. In all your posts you spew the same crap coming from the MSM, hello lemming.

        Wacko libertarian ideas, yeah, the constitution is wacko, freedom is wacko, Liberty is wacko, taking responsibility for yourself wacko.

        You sound like a neo-con who is scared that “We the people” are going to take our country back.

          Not scared of anything except the simple fact that you are going to be left in the lurch by Ron Paul. You won’t look for real solutions because you’re too busy blabbing away about constitutions and “we the people, liberty, and taking responsibility for yourself.

          I’m trying to tell you that the ‘taking responsibility for yourself knnejerk crap is what the problem is. It’s the right’s way of saying that they have no responsibility. They’re really just telling you, buy yourself a big bag of rice and forget about sharing the wealth of the country which you are entitled to. You don’t deserve anything more. So go ahead and take responsibility for yourself and see where that gets you. Never pausing to face the plain fact that income inequality that’s promoted by the wealthy is spoonfed to you. You being the simpleminded mutts you are, you accept it and will continue to do so. When Ron Paul is all finished and washed up, people like you still won’t get it and will still swallow the publum. Obviously you are going nowhere at all. But at least I tried.

          @grayrough Sharing the wealth. Are you freaking kidding me. If you want the wealth get up off your ass and take it. Don’t bitch that the wealthy won’t give me my share. Some of the wealthy actually worked their asses off for it and they deserve it. The ONLY responsibility of the wealthy could be to create jobs by opening businesses and creating a good product that the people want.

          Now if you got your wealth by Crony Capitalism well that’s just wrong, and Ron Paul thinks this is wrong also. If you keep your wealth by finding loopholes in the tax system well that is wrong and Ron Paul thinks this is wrong also, but if you have busted your ass and the reward was wealth well good on you because that is what EVERY American should strive for.

    If Ron Paul would moderate his approach and get to a sensible workable agenda then he could find a niche that would appeal to the left, the right, and moderates too. Unfortunately he won’t because he can’t. He is beholden to the party he wants to represent. He’s beholden to big money and big business. It’s a philosophical problem with Ron. He can’t be for the poor and middle class at the same time as he serves big business. He’ll fail again miserably and for the final time. And soon be forgotten. His son won’t step up to fill the void either because the son is even more enamored with the wealthy.

        No, the banks and corporations aren’t really worried about Ron Paul because Ron doesn’t stand a chance. He’s not taken seriously. The only hope right now is with the 99% protests and the right could be a little worried about that! A little, but not a lot because it’s premature as of yet.

        The reason the Repubs are playing their ‘no, no, no’ game is because they are fine and the status quo could contine as far as they are concerned. It’s only when the little people are fed up and have had enough that the left, right, and center will come together and realize that their interests are all the same. Ron Paul’s real agenda is not in line with that because he is too interested in holding up the old falacies of freedom. Read through the bullshit Ron is peddling and understand that his ‘freedom’ means allowing the rich and powerful to continue to do the same thing as always. Ron’s a rightie at heart and he’s got a lot of little people fooled into thinking that he’s going to give them freedom, blah, blah, blah. He won’t. Get over him unless he signs on to the 99% protests and starts to own it.

          Your definition of freedom is being told that you won’t have to pay income tax anymore. You don’t seem to understand that that’s a big lie that’s manufactured by Ron Paul to make you feel good. It’s not reality and never will be. When Ron Paul is gone you will come to understand that finally.

          Pay attention to what the 99%ers are talking about and get on board with that. It’s probably premature because the people aren’t hurting enough yet and the powerful will short circuit it but at least it’s a real agenda with real hope. As opposed to Ron Paul’s pie in the sky nonsense. Do any of you really think that the American people would vote to bring the troops home? give your lame heads a shake!

          Freedom is the favorite catchall of the right. It’sinvented by them and used by them to further their purposes. Such as, freedom from paying taxes. A quick look at their agenda shows even the densest amongst you that it’s freedom from them having to pay taxes and along with that comes more taxe for you or less services for you. The right isn’t even keeping this a secret anymore. Smartern the fukk up before it’s too late.

          Uhhhh no, it’s already too late this time around.

          @grayrough@LibertyNow Sound to me like you need a WAKE UP CALL!!

          Ron Paul is the only one that is voting with the Constituion! He is the only one that actually studied that Constitution, and what the founding fathers wanted this country to be run like. He is the only one that will bring back this great nation from all the lies and tyranny that is in the white house. He will reduce the size of government.

          Did you know that the income tax started in 1913? That was when the Federal Revsere came into being. Did you also know that there were 2 others that the founding fathers killed?

          What is with the “Pay attention to what the 99%ers are talking about and get on board with that.” So what you mean is don’t think different, don’t speak out against what is gone, don’t protect when the government is not following the Constiution.

          Or what if 99% wanted to go to war with a country that has nothing to do with our security or anything else. Does that make it right to go to war?

          “Ron Paul’s pie in the sky nonsense” – So I guess that the Constituion is pie in the sky nonsense, the Founding Fathers is pie in the sky nonsense, Freedom is pie in the sky nonsense, limited gov’t pie in the sky nonsense, you get to keep 100% of your money is pie in the sky nonsense.

          You need to start thinking like an individual instead of what the 99%. You are an individual.

          Also at one time the 99% wanted a limited government, low taxes, freedom from the bankers and other that are controlling the money instead of the free market — that was the revolution war and that is what this is right now.

          But even then you won’t admit that I was right will you. That’s because the right has sold you a bill of patriotic bullshit right from the cradle. I can tell by the way you talk that there’s no awakening in your future. So why not write me off as a commie? YOu know you want to.

          Freedom is just a word that’s promoted by the super wealthy. You accept it as a buzz word because it’s a motherhood issue with you. Never once stopping to consider that your real freedom can never have anything to do with the freedom you give them in order for them to maintain the status quo. Freedom: freedom to earn as much money as the system will allow you to earn and to keep it all.What a sad joke at the expense of the common people. What a fool Ron Paul is to think it can continue to work. No liberty for you now or in the foreseeable future. You will continue to serve the very wealthy in yourposition as their serf.

          First of all, get past the election because it’s too late now to fix anything. And by then you will understand that Ron Paul took you for a ride. Then you could have a look at the agenda of the 99%ers and pick out what their good ideas are. They know that big money and wall street and payoffs to politicians are what the problems are. They won’t be a cohesive force this time because big money will kill their ideas (with the help of you and people like you) but they are lighting the right fires for the future. It will be yours to grasp hold of but you have to lose the constitution bullshit and the rich’s concept of freedom that they have sold you first. Be patient Paul, the delay is only of your own making.

          stbartels, I’ll answer one of your questions because that’s all that’s really necessary. “What is freedom to you?”

          Freedom to me is choosing a path that will allow us to bread free of the status quo mold that the wealthy have brainwashed you people into accepting. And that can’t be done with Ron Paul. You know that don’t you. You know it’s going to take a grassroots movement that starts to resemble revolution before the very wealthy will let go of everything they’ve stolen from the people. You people need to start thinking of how you’re going to make it happen. You need to begin to understand that the left are your friends and your real enemy is the very wealthy. All people need to come together as a force for the poor and the middleclass in order to make it work.

          Unfortunately you will have to wait until Ron Paul is history before you can even start. The reason being, you can’t give up the false hope you have in him yet. You will though.

So far the other candidates are ignoring him because they know he’s not a serious contender with ideas tht need to be disputed and challenged.

      I have to disagree, because all the other candidates are starting to speak kind of like Ron Paul. The only reason why they don’t want to go up against him is he has history and facts backing up all his agurments. He isn’t saying what most people want to hear — he is saying what Americans NEED to hear!

      They don’t challenge his ideas because they all know in their hearts that he is right. And if his ideas are wacky, you and everyone else must think that the Constiution is wacky, that freedom is wacky, that peace is wacky, having a limited gov’t is wacky, that not getting raped by the TSA is wacky, having congressman that follow the Constitution is wacky, having a gov’t that follows the Constitution is wacky, the Founding Fathers are then wacky!

      Ron Paul is a serious candidate that is why they don’t want to challange him, they know they will lose to his idea, because his ideas are what the Founding Fathers wanted, and fought so hard for to give to us and get are letting is slip between our fingers.

      Ron Paul 2012!

      Never Stop Fighting For Freedom!

      Paul’s ideas are the freedom ideas! His ideas are what the founding fathers wanted in a president. I think that he is the only candidate that is actually qualified to lead this great nation, the others don’t want people to be free!

        To address a few of your points. To begin with, the constitution and the founding fathers is just sentimental pap and a waste of peple’s time. They can be interpreted a dozen different ways. One of your issues to address though is Ron Paul’s antiwar stance. Sure, it makes a lot of sense but the American people are not onside with it. Especially not the Repubs who never will be but not even the Dems have a heart for it. Too bad though because it could be a fix for the problems. It won’t be and Ron Paul is foolish for bringing it forward in the manner he does.

        Having a limited government sounds great, as does eliminating income tax completely, but neither are practical and workable of course. It’s fine to talk about limited government but to talk about it in his context of limitation is just plain over the edge. It’s just not serious.

          If any of the other candidates are starting to echo Ron Paul then they are hooking in to his ‘feel good’ rhetoric to please people who want to feel good and are not interested in practical solutions. Flag waving and telling people what country is the greatest, blah, blah, blah, are always winners. the trouble is, it lacks substance.

          If Ron Paul were to become a serious contender, the others wouldn’t be standing there with a silly smirk on their faces, as the santorum does. As the others have been observed doing. The leader would have to debate him and that’s where Ron Paul’s ‘over the top’ libertarian agenda would be tested. I doubt it will ever get to that point but I sure would like to hear and see it. In my opinion it would spell the end of the ridiculous libertarian nonsense once and for all.

          All one need do is look at his ideas in detail with a clear mind and one will quickly see that his ideas are impossible and unworkable. That includes ending the wars because that’s not popular with the people. Think about it a little and drop the feel good rhetoric and we will discuss it further perhaps.

But they are what this country needs and many people want as well.

When I am right on this, remember that I told you so. Ron Paul is not your hope for the future. He’s too libertarian extremist. A moderate candidate who offers some change in the right direction could be. Unfortunately none of the Repub candidates are that person. They are all bought and paid for.

You are also stuck in labels, how about we skip labels and focus on the ideas?? ENOUGH with the political labels, that’s the distraction. See the ideas for once in your eyes. The only extremist is you believing Ron Paul is a shill because the media gave you a false hope he cant win.

    I would like to hear Ron Paul say he would like to see a stop to gambling expansion such as Indian casinos and lottery games. I would like to hear him say if someone has an extra $5 instead of wasting it on lottery tickets why not buy a book and try to improve your life with increased knowledge. RP needs to connect with a wider group of voters.

      No sir. I hate gambling myself and I hardly play lottery because of my belief but stopping everyone else is unconstitutional. I believe everything should be free including drugs, prostitution etc etc. it is up to every individuals to control themselves from bad activities and that is if they think it is bad and this is where the family and religious value cames in play.

      I agree with you to small degree that $5 should be spent on book rather than lottery but then someone is goanna dictate you or me weather you/me should buy a science book or religious book to improve ourlives.

      I guess as long as no one gamble with taxpayers money like wall street does, I have no problem and nor you should.

      Ron Paul preaches Constitution and through his teaching he did connect to a lot of people even with a person like me.

      Spread the word and may Ron Paul be your president for 2012

      See how ProudTEx puts down your perfectly sound idea! And he’s right that Ron Paul won’t support it because Ron Paul takes everything to the extreme, just like tex does. These extremist ideas of freedom can’t be argued with because you’re not arguing with sane people who are interested in arguing with reality. They’re only interested in exaggerations. Allowing the freedom to use illegal drugs, prostituition, etc., is all you have to know to understand that Tex is a waste of time. Trouble is, he’s typical of Ron Paul support. Get it yet?

        @grayrough@JerryFair Anything that brings change is a “extremist” idea? If the system is not working its the peoples right to want to change it. That makes ron paul a extremest? lets not look at the guy with a 100% voting record or has been right about everything going on for the last 30 years. No ron paul supporters will not get behind another republican if ron paul should lose. No one wants a lobbyist big banker. It’s not about republican democrat libertarian, its about the idea of freedom. How about when we debate focus at the real cause at hand instead of giving little petty labels to try and isolate their ideas based on the labeled political class you gave them.. The social engineers are glad though that you are still buying into the left right paradigm, 2 party system which is really a one party system bought and owned by the same corporate interest. Pure theater when you see the democrats and republicans going at it on TV, buddy buddy behind the scene. Lets let a political party be the front man for the blame instead of the Big banks that have high-jacked this nation through fiat currency and basically captured the world through phony derivatives that neither of us owe. No debt is ours but let’s just keep being apart of the political paradigm and say it’s the republicans fault. Its fun to act like a pre preschooler and not like for the guy behind him pulling the strings. Its fun to be coned over and over again and blame those (insert political name class here) for everything right?

      @JerryFair Ron Paul has his eyes on bigger targets. He wants to stop the big banks and corporations from gambling with the people’s money and then getting bailed out by the taxpayer if they lose.

    Hopefully Dr. Paul will point point out that he receives more military donation than all other candidates put together when questioned about the Wars, especially when they make it seem as though he wouldn’t mind another country getting nuked. More economic based questions, I hope will be asked. I’m sick of the asinine questions such as: What drink do you prefer?

    Become delegates people, these debates and all our work will be for naught if you don’t. http://www.ronpaulsignbomb.com/step-by-step-to-delegate.html. This is imperative and where money will beat us if we are not careful. Just going to the ballot box on voting day won’t do this, we have to flood the system with support. I am not really sure what the magic number is for delegates to win this thing but if you read this page: http://www.ronpaulsignbomb.com/step-by-step-to-delegate.html it sounds imperative.
