    the dems are a evil party while the GOP is full of clowns. and that includes Ron Paul. Who has the guts in the GOP to say that all the entilement programs need to be phased out as quick as can be done?

      Yawn, Ok I understand now. You are a troll. You are here to get a rise out of everyone. You have nothing constructive to say. You are full of non concrete insults and an agenda to just be an all out non informed person, who doesn’t sound a bit older than 12.

      I encourage everyone to do their own research about Ron Paul. He really has our best interests at heart.

      I respect you opinions, even if they are wrong. He does want to phase Social Security out, but not as quickly as possible like you say. He wants to give 25 year olds or younger the opertunity(opertunity the key word) to opt out. That would mean that SS would still be around for 35+ years. Also, he is the only one who wants to make the programs solvent, unlike some who want to make cuts to the programs. Obama took $500 bill from medicare to start the healthcare act, and romeny put out his plan to cut SS/Medicare/Medicade. Ron Paul is the best candidate for the job.

        @FreedomIsAbsolute so my opinions are wrong. Well i can say the same thing about your opinions. and ours are just opinions. But i would say the US is already gone to far and is going to crash. Just to many socialists here and say gimmie gimmie from the Fed Gov. SS is not going to be around 35 years from now as it is. The Fed Gov is going to jack up the retirement age in a few years to at least age 70. and then find out that is not high enough and then jack it up to age 72. And the Gov will also raise up the age when you can receive benefits. it all comes down to mony. and i do agree with Ron Paul on letting 25 and younger opting out of SS. All for that. It is just not right to take away youngs person mony they earn and then hand it over to older people. No matter what the Fed Gov says, it is still stealing.

          No my friend, I said I respect your opinions even if they are wrong. I am not disrespecting you at all. Also, what I have stated previously are not my opinions, but are facts strait out of the Ron Paul campaign. I agree the govt is in the tank and to many want handouts, and since the fed govt has put their grimy fingers on the SS trust fund it has become a Ponzi Scheme; however we do not have to jack up the retirement age at all unless people don’t want to cut spending on wastful programs. Paul has set forth a bold plan to cut $1trill his first year as prez, and even balance the budget in 3yrs. He isn’t for raising the retirement age or raising taxes, infact he wants to phase out the IRS as well. However, once again you cannot do that without cutting spending. Every other candidate including the incumbant are planning on raising the retirment age & taxes because they are for big gov’t. Paul is so serious about cutting spending he will take a paycut of $360k as prez, now that is dedicated I know I may not be able to get you to research Ron Paul in detail, but at least I tried. And I agree with you on some points. Good luck to you.

      @RhondaReichel sorry but i don,t agree with Paul. I am for NAFTA . I am for free trade. And Paul could have voted present a few years ago. but no , he had to vote against it and says he is a free trader. for as i care at this point , i don,t trust him as i don,t trust pol.s , and as i said i voted for Rand Paul and i will again. He did vote for the latest trade deal. and i don,t think NAFTA is a job killer. That is simply BS.

        Sparkobuzzer: You could not be more misinformed and wrong than you are. NAFTA was a huge American Job Killer. Many Large auto manufacturers and General Electric, and MANY MANY other companies closed shop in the USA and took it to MEXICO where they pay people 1/3 less, and there is quite less regulation in Mexico.

        So either stop trolling or get informed on the subject.

          Ever since thses wars started the suicide attacks have skyrocketed in number against the US and her allies. You may be fooled by the news, but these wars are making us less safe. Also, we were supposed to fight these wars to protect our freedoms, but if that is so why are they all being taken away. “Those who give up essential liberties for security will not nor deserve either” FRANKLIN ALso, if we go into IRAN there will be a WWIII between USA/Europe vs IRAN/ russia/china. Russia and china has alread stated this, but our news doesn’t mention it.

          No North American Union; no WTO; no UN Q: Will you abolish all plans to promote economic integration of North America?

          A: Not only do I not want a North American Union, I want us out of the U.N., the IMF, the World Bank, the WTO, NAFTA and CAFTA. NAFTA has nothing to do for free trade. It’s a pretense to lower tariffs, but it’s a reason to go talk to the WTO to raise tariffs. We need free trade. That’s very, very important. But you don’t get that by world government.

          As adopted by the General Membership of the Republican Liberty Caucus at its Biannual Meeting held December 8, 2000. WHEREAS libertarian Republicans believe in limited government, individual freedom and personal responsibility; WHEREAS we believe that government has no money nor power not derived from the consent of the people; WHEREAS we believe that people have the right to keep the fruits of their labor; and WHEREAS we believe in upholding the US Constitution as the supreme law of the land;

          BE IT RESOLVED that the Republican Liberty Caucus endorses the following [among its] principles: The US government should inhibit neither the exportation of US goods and services worldwide, nor the importation of goods and services. The United States should not be answerable to any governing body outside the United States for its trade policy.

          This resolution urges disengaging from the NAFTA Superhighway System and the North American because these proposals threaten U.S. sovereignty:

          Whereas US trade deficits with Mexico and Canada have significantly increased since the implementation of NAFTA; Whereas a NAFTA Superhighway System from the west coast of Mexico through the US and into Canada has been suggested as part of a North American Union to facilitate trade; Whereas the State of Texas has already begun planning of the Trans-Texas Corridor, a major multi-modal transportation project beginning at the US-Mexico border, which would serve as an initial section of a NAFTA Superhighway System;

    Romney will get clobbered by Pres.. Obama over the health care issue. What is Romney going to say? I don,t trust any pol and that includes Ron Paul. as i said before a few years ago he voted against a free trade agreement. Why? More free trade agreements are good. And another thing what GOP candidate out there is going to really come out and say how SS, Medicare and Medicaid need to be done away with at some point? that person will not get elected and at some point now the US is going to go under bankrupt. No way around it.

      You obviously have no idea what `free trade` means and are repeating the mantras crammed in your little brain by the corporate whore media. In reality it has nothing to do with trade at all but de-industrializing the west and leaglizing the plunder of the rest of the world by fortune 100 companies and international `banks` like Goldman Sachs, George Soros and the rest of the parasites.

      Thanks to the “free trade” of morons like you the third world, developing slowly until the 70s, are in total ruin, socially, economically and politically. Only the puppets of the globalist institutions get into power both there and in the west, criminal to the last one, while anybody else gets removed by any and all means. Since you`re obviously totally ignorant of, well, everything you will probably not know that all the useless wars over the past 20 years are really about forcing ? globalization` and `free trade` on the rest of the world untill they`re all standardized and plundered.

      And still your tiny little mind believes more of the same will help and you can`t even identify NAFTA as the wrecker of the US economy. With cretins like you around there truly is no hope.

      Perhaps if you promised to never speak again as long as you live, or until you get some basic understanding of politics and economy we might stand a chance. But I`ll bet you ten dollars you won`t manage to clam up for as much as a minute.

    Ron Paul is the only consistent candidate we have! his views are well developed and his message has been consistent for all the years i have watched him. i trust him above all others he is the only one who says we should plan our wars out declare them and win them. he has educated us that would listen and read and will give back our country to us if we have the strength of conviction to support him

    I once heard Gary Bauer when he was running to be President back in the 1990,s , that Social Security was a good program or system. I wanted to gag as he at the time was the head of some Christian group. Makes me want to vomit. It is about stealing mony away from kids and kids to be born that have no say so right now , so that Pol.. can get on TV and say how great they are to save Granny from the poor house , when they are going to see that the kids are in the poor house all their lives. it is not right and remember that God knows this and they will answer one day to HIm.

    Freedom is Absolute. there is no way to save Social Security. It is one big ponzi scheme and it is going to crash in the long haul. I don,t care what any pol says. It is impossible to save. even Ron Paul could tell you that if he is honest. Look at the numbers. Do you want little kids to pay over 50% in taxes to the federal gov alone? Must slash spending right now and slash out so much of the government. Tell me who is going to do that? Let Ron Paul have the guts to come out and say that. No smoke and mirrors programs. the old gezzers want mony and it comes on the backs of their grandchildren and great grandchildren. It is inmoral .

      Ya I know it is a failed program mainly because politicians cannot keep their grimey fingers off the trust fund/the creator never accounted for inflation. Same goes for Medicare. But it could be saved for those who need it. You can start to phase it out by letting 25yr olds or younger opt out. I could not stop laughin when I read this particular article. It said somethin like “Paul is goin to hurt SS by letting the young drop out. He cannot do that because the elderly rely on their input to the system. That is how it works, the young pay for the old.” And I was laughin so hard for the person who wrote that article is a douchbag, for takin from peter to pay paul is the definition of PONZI SCHEME with a little MADOFF mixed in aswell.

    Considering the amount of time the questioners gave Ron Paul, as usual very little time, he did, as usual, a great job. I think it’s appalling how the media continues to put Ron Paul off during every debate. We, as Americans, should let the media know what we think of their manipulation of these debates. It is obvious who they want the people to think and vote for…….Romney, Cain, and now Gingrich, I suppose are now the “top tier”……tune in next week, it will probably change, like the weather!!

    I could not believe what I did and did not hear during tonight’s debate. 95% of everything said during this debate was mortifying. I could tell you what though; it let the real candidates shine. It showed all their true colors. Bachmann- A women who makes herself out to be the daughter of Jesus, saying she has and America needs strong virtues, and the respect for life…what a joke. Once she said she supports torture she blew her cover. Santorum comes off as a kid throwing a temper tantrum because he can’t have desert for he didn’t eat his vegetables, and after hearing him say he was the one who drew up the papers for the Iraq “war” I disregarded him as a contender for in my eyes he is a plant. Perry cannot remember his lines, making me believe he is not serious about cutting the wasteful DC spending. Cain, well other than being embarrassed for my country for letting him get to #1 in the polls, I have nothing good to say about him. Newt had some good 1 liners, but they got old quick, not to mention distasteful. He is a warmonger more so then the others, something this country needs to rid itself of like white blood cells attacking the flu.

    Romney is the establishments pick, and is the polar opposite of a conservative and who knows, after day one of him being in the white house he may flip flop into a democrat. Huntsmen, he was a guy with unlimited amount of opportunity with his daddy owning a chemical company and all. Didn’t think much of him either, although I like what he had to say tonight. Also, he didn’t have much time to speak in this debate as well as the last which has me thinking he is better than all previously mentioned. Who does that leave me with? I wonder. Am I missing anybody? Anyone? Maybe a man of principle with 30+ years backing him? Maybe the only one who still regards the constitution as sacred as Bachmann does the bible?(Which she just proved she is all talk about virtue when it comes to torturing fellow human beings, and I can say the same for war hungry Santorum.) Perhaps the only one who will balance the budget in 3 years without touching SS or Medicare and is the only one who will making them solvent? Or the only one risking his life fighting for freedom and the abolishment being that of the slave making Federal Reserve which is the third of its kind in American history?

    The latter sounds like a dream candidate that I have heard my fellow Americans crying for during the past 15+ years. Where will we ever find a candidate with the amount of integrity to follow through with all of this? Would the People see him if he was staring them in their faces? Conceivably, I could say yes and I can say without a doubt millions of true freedom lovers do. But what about all the rest? It seems as though they have simply lost their way, no longer people of their own opinion or convictions, but pure and unbelievable ignorance. Are they bad people? Not at all, and sooner rather than later they will wake up, for it is unlikely to happen overnight but without a doubt the time has come. When the establishment runs out of flavors for each month; the lost will find the way and the one to lead them in the right direction. And at one point they will realize that he has been in plain view for nearly 2 score years.

      @FreedomIsAbsolute I couldn’t of said it better myself. Ron Paul is a man of integrity. He has never been a flip flopper and he has a proven track record. All of those candidates true colors were revealed in last nights debate. How can a informed republican voter vote for anyone other than Ron Paul? And, that’s where the problem lies. They are uninformed and if that changes Ron Paul is the only clear choice.

    You know Frankly, I have no full knowledge of this political event that is going on. I have listened to everybody on the stand on tv for a few minutes, I am a good body reader, I think there is something wrong with it, last time i remember when Obama was running for president, everyone was really speaking upon Qs and As. But this time, I think there are two people who is not getting full attention especially Ron, I looked everywhere for him on CNN, FOX, ABC, RT and he is hardly on there, yet the other candidates are on there pretty often. I like his words, I like the fact that he is for the people and he will only fight when there is a real true reason behind it, not facts, because facts only go for the black and white for us to read and believe as it seems. I have read all of your post comments, but the only thing I can do is pray for a change because this is too much, but lately I have heard a lot of people talks about Ron Paul, so why he isnt getting much media when he has the most attention from the public, I don’t understand? Keep in mind I’ve only voted once in my life. I didnt vote for obama, I vote for Al Gore when bush won the 2nd term. Now I dont know if the voting thing counts or do they control our votes and covert them to what ” they ” or ” who ” wants him/her to be president on the pedestal.

    The Foreign Policy debate of South Carolina GOP was extremely interesting in that it showed the opinions, knowledge and divisions of the candidates. To briefly critique each candidate, it was clear that Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry, Mitt Romney, and especially Rick Santorum and Michelle Bachmann had absolutely no idea of What they were talking about with regards to foreign policy. The consensus among these competing fellows of the same mind was “water boarding and torture is perfectly alright. Killing US citizens without a trial just on the faint suspicion that they might be terrorist is absolutely correct. We won’t talk with anyone who we suddenly decide is called a “Terrorist”. And it is better to Nuke Iran, Pakistan, and oh hell, let’s just throw China and the rest of the world into the target zone if they don’t agree with us.” I think my problem with these stances are that they are compiled of both utter fear and utter ignorance. I could tell that if any the above mentioned candidates were asked to name people whom they had personally met from Pakistan, Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq, or anywhere else besides America, there would be an embarrassed or in some cases “prideful” silence. So essentially all but two or three of the candidates on stage were utterly determined to kill people whom they know nothing about. Cain tended to waffle in between arguments. (Well they don’t know Me!, Yet, you as scared as I am?!) As both Ron Paul and Jon Huntsman said “If America wishes to lead the world in freedom, and high ideals, it should first demonstrate those qualities itself”. In the GOP Foreign Policy debate of South Carolina, there are only two individuals I would perhaps trust with the fate and future of America; Jon Huntsman and Ron Paul. For the rest? I wouldn’t trust them with a pocketknife!

I am a free trader, period. a few years ago Ron Paul voted against one of the free trade agreements. why? is it because it was not perfect? give me a break. talk the talk but not the walk . Oh yes i did vote for Rand Paul and will again vote for him.

      Free trade is the process of free people engaging in market activity without government interference such as tariffs or managed-trade agreements. In a true free market, individuals and companies do business voluntarily, which means they believe they will be better off as a result of a transaction. Tariffs, taxes, and duties upset the balance, because governments add costs to the calculation which make doing business less attractive. Similarly, so-called managed trade agreements like WTO favor certain business interests and trading nations over others, which reduces the mutual benefit inherent in true free trade.

        @RhondaReichel , Sorry but that is not true, just because a trade deal is not as good as totally free trade. but to say he is a free trader when he voted AGAINST , the one just a couple of years ago. says to me that he talks out of both sides of his mouth. I am not voting for him. and yes i voted for Rand and he voted for the latest trade deal while his dad did not vote. But of course he might have been out campaining?

          Sorry you aren’t going to change my mind. I’m personally not scared of ‘terrorism’ in a country 5000 miles away.

          I am a realist who understands that there are many countries with Nuke Bombs. I am not going to put my life on hold preventing a so called Nuke Crisis, especially considering the USA was the one to drop Nukes in the first place.

          @RonJohnson@RonPaul2012alldaylong Have you ever met anyone from Iran? I have. It was rather by accident as I was stuck in a Shanghai airport for 30 hours, almost entirely out of money. I happened to sit down by two men speaking a funny sounding language. They noticed I was sitting there, eyeing their food, and so just like that- they shared it with me. As we talked with sign language and my few words of Arabic, and their few words of English I learned they were from Iran. And I shocked at how educated, gracious, polite, generous and just plain Good they were. In America we are constantly bombarded with ignorant fearful opinions from the media and leaders with greed-driven priorities.”Iran is the enemy, We have to fear them, and get rid of their scientists; destabilize and destroy them.” So when I heard “We are from Iran” I was slightly fearful and wary. Yet when I discovered how nice, well mannered and intelligent these gentleman, and in subsequent times after meeting many other Iranians and finding the same to be true of them too, I was horrified by how manipulated the view-points of my fellow Americans have been. Thank you for being both courageous and sensible, Dr. Ron Paul.

          I completely agree with you on that. In fact, I’m afraid that many of the current problems the United States is facing with regards to foreign policy are because they have often treated other people and even on occasion their Own people in the way that one should not treat dog, let alone another human being.

          Are you OK with Pakistan having nukes? If not why was it allowed?

          That’s a stupid statement…..we can’t afford another war and China sure isn’t going to lend us the money to attack their ally Iran. Where are you big shots going to get the money ?

    The media is so frustrating, but the more I talk with people in general when I am out and about is encouraging. Because I find a lot of people can be easily swayed to see Ron Paul as the best candidate.

    Some candidates are better off running for Pakistan, some candidates are better off running for Jail officers. If the people of America don’t get it that Ron Paul is advocating true economic welfare for everyone (not welfare in the neo-con sense) then perhaps they should volunteer to go to war indefinitely until they meet their ultimate desire of bloodshed. The worst debate ever, hard to accept that the country is run by morons who can’t even read what their own intelligence is suggesting. But the sad thing is that they know, but are part of the criminal think-tank.

    Absolutely ridiculous. But with no media attention at all Ron Paul will win this nomination.

      @HoraceYader We need your support, with all our votes put together, we can win this. When there is no cause or point to go an vote, no one cares, but now that there is one, we better occupy poll stations.

    This is tough to watch – ron paul is fading away – everyone gets a 60sec opening question…. but ron paul – and he never called them on it. when he was asked off-topic questions – he never went back and said something like: “Hold on a minute – that other question is the big one – and THIS is how it needs to be handled.”

    He’s not decisive.

    He’s the only principled candidate – but he NEVER differentiates himself. Maybe something like: “America, you want another run of the mill candidate? go with people who still want to play god with governments of foreign countries. I lead on the economy and I’m ahead of the game on foreign policy.”

    God damn where’s the fire. (no pun intended)

      Ron Paul never differentiates himself? Maybe not in the childish way you want him to, but I’ve never seen any candidate differentiate themselves from the bunch more than Ron Paul has, which I respect in the highest regards.

      I get your Point. Ron Paul is very civil in these debates. However, in interviews he isn’t at all afraid to go after the status quo and differentiate himself from the rest. He isn’t like Santorum or Michelle who would try to get the moderators attention. He won’t talk out of his time. He only speaks when given his turn. And it is true that he most times doesn’t go backwards like many of the other candidates. He answers the question he is asked. He is more of a statement than a politician. What we have to do is recognize that and respect him the more for it.

      I don’t think decisivness has anything to do with it regarding Ron Paul…he’s the most consistently decisive candidate on the stage….you saw how Bachmann tried to jump in ….they just won’t let you. What I did is contact CBS and their local affiliate and give them hell about this 89 second exposure. If everybody just stopped watching CBS they would learn a valueable lesson.
