    So I stumbled upon this website called therightscoop.com, and found it to be an EXTREMELY biased republican forum with articles about how Paul supporters stuff the ballot boxes of straw polls. They have an online poll of their own that the Good Doctor is NOT winning. Feel free to show your support.

      In the long run you pay off the debt with no Income tax by cutting foreign aid and spending in the government. Have a read at how much the federal reserve gave out in foreign aid and then compare that to the debt of the nation. Then you will understand how it can be done!

      @RobertLee

      What central bankers are charging interest and did you know that the debt ceiling was about said interest because we the people were not paying in enough taxes per day to cover the interest that the federal reserve "cartel" was charging? So if we weren't paying interest to the federal reserve and we were printing our own money what would we do with all that tax interest free money going into the treasury? Did you know that the IRS was a collection agency for the federal reserve?

    The revolution will not be televised.

    People we need to start campaigning on our own. Make/buy yard signs and place them all around your hometown. Be creative. Be simple. The truth is simple. Encourage others to look at Dr. Paul's record in comparison to the other candidates.

    It is clear that the population will not be seeing Dr. Paul on their television screens. If we want this guy to win we need to spread the word on our own. We need to do something on our own. The media, the powers that be, rely on our laziness and complacency to remain in power.

    This is not the time to be complacent. I don't have to start in on the state of our country and how I want a better world for my children's children.

    The time is now.

    The revolution will not be televised.

    Yes, Ron Paul said no taxes and that sounds so good to his lemming followers that they won't even hesitate for a minute to think about what it means. Ron Paul is full of vacuous promises to make his rodents happy. And that's why he is soon going to be a complete failure and totally redundant.

    And the biggest problem resulting from that is not Ron Paul's problem. It becomes the people's problem because they were stupid enough to let the old fool go on harping about unrealistic pie in the sky promises, while Rome burned.

    But there is hope! It lies in the 99% protests. Ron Paul says he supports them because they are victims but Ron Paul is the biggest problem of all right now. He's convinced people to waste time and tread water in hopes of electing him. And all their dreams will come crashing down along with Ron Paul.

    Congratulations you idiots, you are playing right into the Republican agenda.

      @grayrough If you think Ron Paul has anything to do with the "Republican agenda" you're completely uninformed.

      He said no income tax, not no taxes! We didn't even have an income tax until the 16th amendment in 1913 which directly contradicted the still-standing precedent from 1895 that the income tax is unconstitutional.

      @grayrough Where are your facts? there has only been an income tax since 1913, ironically when the federal reserve was created. If anyone is a lemming, I would look closer to home. The 99% fight against what the banks, corporations and the federal reserve stand for. Ron Paul supports them because he understands how the 1% run, he understands how to remove as many taxes as possible.Every time the government spends it must find that money from somewhere, you reduce their spending, you cut government and foreign aid...and then you don't have to tax as much. It is quite simple! Regulate money supplies and make sure it is sound money, related to something of actual wealth, because Money is NOT wealth, it is a fabricated and created convention by humans. Think of it this way...Humans created the measurements scale...during the great depression they said their wasn't enough money, but there was no less resources, no less actual wealth...it was a shortage in money supplies to the masses. That is like a builder going to a construction site and they say "sorry you can't work today we have no inches..." "we have all the equipment, the resources and the man power to build, but were short of inches" One day you will understand you have been brainwashed to believe his ideas are pie in the sky!If you settle for what they tell you, you lose! If you allow the TV programs to teach you, you lose! If you think for yourself, read and understand how the economical and social models currently work you will prosper!One must truly practise Socratic wisdom in order to fully understand the chains and boundaries our social and economic models have created.

    Baring a miracle...the managing behind the scene IMF/ World Bankers who own the Dem/ Republicans....same coin just two different sides....same coin...it is unlikely that Dr. Paul will get the Republican nomination.......I hope he does....if not he should strongly consider splitting off into Revolution third independent party... Baring vote fraud ( which is really real....meaning everyone voting for Dr. Paul NEEDS to vote absentee ballot; certified mail return receipt requested send in to precinct AND CM/ R3 notarized copy to Dr. Paul.....undeniable proof of vote... a serious suggestion....to consider...

    It is NOT an economy problem...it is a Printing press problem by the non Federal Federal Reserve Bank... The solution is Hour Bills.....1/2, 1/4, 1/8th,..... based on an hour of labor...something of value...DEBT free...like Ithaca, NY......barter script....

    Technically, President Paul CAN and COULD issue an Executive Order to Order his One Trillion cut plan....President Lincoln NEVER rescinded Marshall Law after the Civil War...It is STILL in effect ( factual proof at www.teamlaw.org ) thus the ONLY reason why Executive Orders lawfully exist...

    Ron Paul is intellectually interesting, and practically completely unreal! No Taxes??? Really?? REALLY??? That's about the stupidest statement anyone can make. Who's paying for schools, roads, services, public libraries, parks, fountains, July4th, ... the list is endless.

    The danger in this country is everyone is getting intellectually lazy - think and investigate for yourselves, people! Don't take a politician's or a media outlet's view point as gospel. EVERYONE HAS AN AGENDA - AND YOU DON'T FIGURE IN IT!

      You obviously didn't read his plan to solve the problems.

      Taxes is no magic. It's the money government can spend at your expense. In most cases government is ineffective and lack knowledge about the local problems. Ron Paul simply says that the people and the free market will do a better job.

      I believe Ron is talking about No Federal Taxes. He wants to give the power back to the States. The things you listed are things the States and local governments could pay for with their taxes. I am just wondering about things that only the Fed Government can provide. How will defense be paid for if the income tax is gone? I know we will have less spending on wars and overseas bases which is not bad because I think we should not be spending money on wars. We should only be defending our own country not everyone else.

        @grayrough@MarcSivam Gray, please move to France. We fought the Monarchy to keep our money back during a little thing called the revolutionary war. The power is supposed to be to the states, plus block grants for programs, once again to the states. The only way you could defend an unconstitutional unapportioned tax on Americans is if you are on welfare. Are you?

          @JosephDougherty@grayrough@MarcSivam Sorry, but taxation is within the realm of the 1787 constitution as congress can make whatever law it deems necessary and proper to fulfill the 1787 constitution's rationale as declared in its Preamble.

          @karlof1@grayrough@MarcSivam Right, but if only federal taxes were paying for the virtues stated in the preamble that would be great, much of which has been left to interpretation, and with disregard to the 16th ammendment we live with unapportioned federal taxation. I think the realization of this fact is bearing fruit, finally... tea party movements, the heaviest liberaterianism we've seen and distrust of government as shown in census polling.

          @JosephDougherty@grayrough@MarcSivam Continued: I suggest consideration of this fact: We the People, in whose name the federal government was supposedly formed and acts for as per the Preamble, have never actually controlled the federal government, and have thus never been consulted on matters of interpretation, along with the waging of war, the building of Empire and other important questions. Do please examine the document created in 1787 at Philadelphia, look at what it created, and ask yourself if it's an authoritarian or democratic document, while recalling that the document in question did NOT contain the first 10 amendments.

      @MarcSivam Marc, if you are a homeowner you know that your PROPERTY taxes already pay for schools. Think about everything you mentioned, except national parks, Fed taxes do not pay for those things. Check out some Milton Friedman, Nobel Prize Winner, he is a renowned economist who was in favor of tax abolitionism and free markets which in every instance throughout history led to a more prosperous society. "when you put equality before freedom, you get neither, when you put freedom before equality, you get a great deal of both" Socialism and over taxing leads to NO middle class as we see in most third world country dictatorships, and many societies throughout history, leading to very poor and very rich only. It's very interesting, check it out.

        And the amount of time that Grayrough spends blogging on Ron Pauls website is lost time on Obama's website for convincing the Independents to elect him again. Independents helped Obama win but, guess who they are now supporting?

      @MarcSivam You are about the stupidest statement anyone can make. You should do your research before you go crying crazy. First off, he isn't offering to repeal it he clearly said he wishes to work towards that as an ultimate goal. Most of our time as a country has been spent without an income tax. It is not unrealistic.

      All of this pointless spending is what's unrealistic. Printing money every time we need to pay off a debt is unrealistic.

      Ron Paul's agenda has been made clear to everyone by now. He's got 45 years banked. You've got absolutely nothing to go off on the claim that the American people don't factor into his agenda. He has fought for our freedoms tooth and nail longer than you've probably been alive.

      No federal income taxes, our roads are paid for with a tax on gasoline, Police, fire schools are paid by the state. At the state level the citizens have power to control the state in the form of propositions. We don't have any power at the federal level.

      Three questions: How much do you pay in federal income taxes?

      Are you happy with what they have done with it?

      Did you approve of 700 billion in TARP going to the banks?

      The ONLY candidate that will give us something different is Ron Paul

    How about a campaign to get fair coverage from CNN?

    I left email with both CNN and Anderson Cooper expressing my disappointment with the way the Ron Paul was denied his closing statement in tonight’s debate in Vegas. I also left a phone comment as well at: 404-827-1500.

    Then after making my online donation, I called the CNN breaking news line at: 404-827-1500, and informed them of the breaking news that Ron Paul’s money bomb had raised about $100,000 in about 38 minutes.

    I suggest that all Ron Paul supporters flood CNN with both comments and breaking news about the money bomb.

    By the way, here are my email comments to CNN and Anderson Cooper:

    Dear Anderson Cooper,

    As an registered voter, I thought it was totally shameful the way the you denied Ron Paul his closing statement in tonight’s debate in Vegas. I further observed that you pretended that Ron Paul doesn’t exist during your coverage in the spin room which is where you should have been issuing an on-air apology to Ron Paul, and the viewers of the debate. I urge you to do the right thing and give Ron Paul a five minute segment on CNN tomorrow to explain how he will defeat Obama in the 2012 election. Furthermore, I urge you to also give Ron Paul a ten minute segment to explain the details of his Restore America plan… It’s the only fair and right thing to do… Do the right thing!!!

    The debate rules were biased in that you had less time to speak if the other candidates did not refer to you. For the most part the other candidates shunned Dr. Paul for this reason. So the debate was mostly Mitt and Rick arguing over who was the biggest fuckup. Dr. Paul...you need to assert yourself a little more. Sling some mud dude!

      I agree, he must become more aggressive during debates.

    As usual, Ron Paul got ignored at the end!!

    Santorum: They didn't let you respond.

    Ron Paul: They never do.

    Fail!
