    RP takes money from big oil. Oh, now you’re going to tell me that he didn’t do it “in exchange for his vote”, right?

    And how would anyone ever prove that?

    We live in a capitalist society. You need money to run for office. I know at least one candidate who used that excuse when he was caught taking money from a Grand Wizard of the KKK. His name was Ron Paul. He reasoned that it was actually better to be taking money from them because it would be dangerous in their hands and good in his.

    I knew my screenname would become the issue. Because you can’t talk about RP.

    Alright everybody please calm down. If you don’t have something good to say about Ron Paul then why on earth are you posting on his site. If you don’t support Ron Paul then support someone else. If you don’t support any of these candidates then don’t vote, simple as that. Don’t attack someones opinion because it’s their right to have one. If you support a candidate other than Ron Paul then I’m sure all of us here would love to hear why.

    scrappy . Ron Paul’s Speech on the house floor explaining his vote.

    ” Sadly we find ourselves today dealing with our responsibility to provide national security under the most difficult of circumstances.

    To declare war against a group that is not a country makes the clear declaration of war more complex.

    The best tool the framers of the Constitution provided under these circumstances was the power of Congress to grant letters of marque and reprisals, in order to narrow the

    retaliation to only the guilty parties. The complexity of the issue, the vagueness of the enemy, and the political pressure to respond immediately limits our choices. The proposed resolution is the only option we’re offered and doing nothing is unthinkable”

    No, actually he voted to allow the POTUS to bring us to war anywhere at any time against anyone. See September 14, 2001 resolution.

      In an earlier post, you yourself more-or-less cite that Ron Paul “voted to give the POTUS a blank check to conduct unlimited war anywhere in the world against anyone the president deemed to have carried out the attacks or to have harbored them.” Exactly! Afghanistan was clearly harboring islamic terrorists who had designs on carrying out attacks in the U.S. or on U.S. interests elsewhere in the world. As a result, Ron Paul voted for the war in Afghanistan. On the other hand, there was no evidence to suggest that Iraq was harboring fugitives or sponsoring terrorist actions against the U.S.. As a result, he did NOT vote for waging war there. If you’d slow down and think through your arguments, you’d see that you’re ranting only supports the facts showing that Ron Paul is a man of principal and conviction who does what he says he’s doing to do.

    The reason it’s so difficult to have a conversation with a Paul supporter is because their enthusiasm for their candidate precludes rational analysis.

    Any criticism of Paul is a “smear”. If you disagree with his policy positions it’s because you really love war or because you just don’t understand what he really stands for. Oh yeah, and you’re trying to keep a good man down because you’re afraid.

    Personally, I think this kind of slobbering dedication is downright dangerous. I have my preffered candidate for 2012, but I came to support that candidate through a lot of research and debate. I compared candidates, found pros and cons to each, and made my decision. None of them deserve my undying support, and I refuse to accord any of them the air of infallibity

    I absolutely refuse to LIE (yes, LIE) about any candidate’s past statements and past voting records just make them appear as if they have always been “right”. That’s what RP supporters do.

People like me, for example, who don’t have a mind of their own, but do what their masters tell them to do.

    Okay, someone has to set this Wead guy straight. Like most Ron Paul supports He’s not being honest.

    I am so sick of hearing that Paul’s positions are being “misrepresented”. His blind supporters misrepresent his positions. When people correct them, they are accused of “smearing” the “good doctor”.

    Wead: “He believes strongly in the Constitution and if we’re going to go to war, let’s go to war. He voted in favor of going after Osama bin laden.”

    Uh…not exactly. He’s said over and over again that the president can’t bring the nation to war on his own, only the Congress can do that. And he’s right. Guess what? President Bush went to Congress to get authorization for both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. They weren’t called a “decleration of war” but he did get their authorization. Paul voted FOR the Afghanistan War. Not only did he vote for it, he also voted to give the POTUS a blank check to conduct unlimited war anywhere in the world against anyone the president deemed to have carried out the attacks or to have harbored them. That’s right, so if the President says that the Queen of England carried out the attacks, we’ll go to war with England, and if the President says that Mickey Mouse carried out the attacks, we’ll go to war in Orlando. Wherever the president wants to take us, we’ll go. And Paul voted for that.

    In more recent times, when Paul has tried desperately to distance himself from that vote, his supporters ( like this noxious Wead) have portrayed his vote in favor of broad executive powers in warfare as “voting to go after Osama bin Laden”. Well, no. The September 14th Resolution didn’t name Bin laden. Yes, bin Laden was at the top of the list of people who were going to taste the fury of American military might, but that doesn’t mean that that was what the resolution was about.

        I messed up?

        He didn’t vote “to go after bin Laden”. He voted FOR THE RESOLUTION. Here’s what the resolution says:

        “(a) IN GENERAL- That the President is authorized to use all necessary and appropriate force against those nations, organizations, or persons he determines planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, or harbored such organizations or persons, in order to prevent any future acts of international terrorism against the United States by such nations, organizations or persons.”

        The “occupation of Afghanistan” that you are citing is really the long, continous, unbroken struggle against the Taliban. The Taliban harbored al-Qaeda, which makes them fair game according to the resolution. That means that he did indeed vote for the occupation of Afghanistan. If he didn’t want to end up the way it did, he shouldn’t have voted for such open-ended executive powers.

        I understand that Paul is against the resolution now. He should just say that he was wrong. But he has to maintain the illusion that he’s the candidate with unwavering principles, the candidate who is painstakingly consistent, the candidate who is always right because he is so precienet.

        So he lies. He reinvents the past. He says that he didn’t vote for the war in Afghanistan. Nope, he voted to go after one man, and one man only–bin Laden. If you were a thinking person, you might take the time to evaluate this claim of Paul’s, to see if it holds any water at all.

        It just so happens that bin Laden is not named in the resolution that Paul voted for. Sure, he would be AMONG the people the resolution mentions, but a manhunt for one particular individual is not what the resolution calls for. The Taliban is also AMONG the enemies named in the resolution. So is anyone the president determines conducted the attacks. That’s right…ANYONE. And Paul voted for it.

        Also, if he voted FOR going after bin Laden, why was he against it when he finally did?

        His excuse was that it violated Pakistani territorial sovereignty. He thinks we could have just asked the Pakistanis to arrest him and they would have done it. Considering the fact that they were hiding him, that theory makes little sense.

        “Hey guys, you’re never going to believe it–that guy we’ve been looking for for the last ten years is hiding right underneath our noses, in a drone-proof hideout nestled away right next to your service academy where high ranking army officers routinely go jogging. Can you believe it?! He was there the whole time!”

        After it happened, I recall this website posted an old video of Paul on the House floor claiming that Pakistan was hiding bin Laden. ‘Dr. Paul right again!” was the headline. So apparently Paul also believed that Pakistan was hiding bin Laden, but also thinks that we could have just asked the people who were hiding him to arrest him. This was intended to prove that Paul was “right” all along.

        Interestingly, if we had sent men into Afghanistan in 2001 to hunt bin Laden without toppling the government, that too would have been a violation of Afghan sovereign territory.

        Ron Paul has yet to explain how you locate a man who doesn’t want to be found in a country that doesn’t want to allow people in to find him without violating someone’s borders. How exactly is that done?

    Life long democrat, I (at 60 yrs old), have defected. I am taking a leap of faith in my support for Ron Paul. He has radical ideas, but he appears to be honest and sincere, and indeed interested in preserving individual liberties. I have been following comments made by his detractors (he is pro-life, pro-home schooling, against compulsory inoculation, etc). Believe me, a President Paul will have his plate so full with matters of economy, defense, foreign policy, etc that these fringe issues will receive little or none of his attention. His statements concerning the “fringe” issues are, in my opinion, his personal and honest response to inquiries, not his intention to forcefully effect policy. Americans,give Dr. Paul a chance, please!

    Miitt Romney received almost three years of deferments from Vietnam at the height of the war from ’66 – ’69. He was considered a “minister” by the Mormon church and did missionary work in France during this time. He also received deferments until 1970 to continue his academic studies. In 2008 Romney listed his biggest regret as not serving in the military, being quoted as saying he “longed in many respects to actually be in Vietnam.”. Romney also has five sons who all have chosen not to serve in the military.

    It’s great to see that a consistent candidate like “minister” Romney has remained true to his earlier beliefs about war and vows never to send off anyone else’s sons or daughters to die in a foriegn land in a war that has absolutely nothing to do with defense of our country. :)

    Hi, this is Bommetje from China. Don’t forget that the voting-machines in the US are really really really really untrustworthy (see the documentary ”Hacking Democracy”), so for Ron Paul to win ANY election ”his people” should address that issue first and foremost (and see to it that the counting is done manually and refuse to vote into a machine you cannot trust at all) otherwise it’s a lost battle before anything starts and all the good work was for nothing…… Hopefully the truth about stuff happening to prevent us humans to live to our fullest potential will come out soon and we leave this whole pathetic drama behind us….

    The CFR goal of a global fascist corporation controlled by a hand full of families will never work and will result in a catastrophic global holocaust. To reverse this trend would require constitutional monetary policy. The issuance of currency unto the peoples with constitutional contracts. A US treasury that represents the people and not the shadow fascist regime. If the people would only know the intent and disposition of the shadow fascist regime, then they might understand the change that is needed. Ron Paul is only the starting point. Scientist, military complexes and corporate entities try to justify the power that they have been courted to represent through CFR, however they still are at a loss when it come to the cause of our civilizations current complex problems. They fail to trace the power of economic expansion and the intentions of those who currently dominate this. That which has become unsustainable to them is steered scientifically through chance mutation theories with the need for secretive intervention. In other words, the need to investigate unconstitutional economic expansion is never challenged. The accumulation of ludicrous nation deficits is the main stay of CFR’s power and control while we are scolded with this through ‘media reverse sociology‘. Debt is the enemy’s power, without debt the enemy is nothing, a nobody worthless people; secretive bookkeepers. To really get a good look at what we need to get back to when it comes to constitutional monetary policy, we should to analyze pre US revolutionary colonial currencies. In our current state we should look at the ’Continentals’ and the ’Green Backs’ as an example of action. Peoples always look back unto precious metals as a medium, but I challenge you now to look at what drives that. Please, now give the unit of exchange its proper value and give it the unit hour of labor, whether it is mental or physical. IOUs, gold, silver, copper, platinum, lead, oil, coal, etc. all things that the peoples will labor for? Food, shelter, education, peace, these are things people pay for. We should keep the incentives of ‘free enterprise’ and ‘capitalism’

    Wrong – O Mittens ! You are sadly mistaken if you are not aware that most Americans are completely in tune with Ron Paul’s foreign policy stance ! Had you not been granted deferments from fighting in Indochina, you might be a bit more apprehensive of America’s current aggressive empirical designs. But since you spent the time when other young Americans your age were dying in Vietnam, touring France on a bicycle and promoting your Mormon teachings, there is no way possible you could ever know this. I am including a website address for all known chickenhawks that are all for America’s wars and interventions as long as somebody else’s sons and daughters are doing the fighting and dying.

    It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that RON PAUL should be our next President. Restoring economic and personal freedoms under the guidelines of the Constitution is what America is all about. Non americans, who know the difference, see us as a shining light on a far away hill.

    American(s) have been appathedic about what has been happening in Washington, but I see a change in the wind . This could be the “American Revival” true pattriots have been waiting for. Vote RON PAUL for President and lets Give him true Constitional Representative(s) to get that job done. Your Vote in 2012 can do this!

    The four eyes Bachmann who wants more wars then Obama and Bush combined calls “Ron Paul would be dangerous as president”

    No wonder his 600+ bill didn’t pass because imbeciles around him and above him who wants the status queue and business as usual. This tells me we need many Ron Pauls in the system to really fix our problem but for now, we would like to have Ron Paul as President as a start of new area for America to end corruption, wars and bring decency for our beloved country.

    Great job telling fox news how it is. Man, constantly as you see in this video, the msm tries to ruin Ron Paul. Just watch the interviewers eyes look over for guidance when he starts to lose his argument. You can even hear him do that thing they always do where they keep repeating yeah, uh huh, ok, to distract and end what the interviewee is saying. The guy tried hard to make Ron look bad but once again it didn’t work. I hope everyone sees where this “interviews” direction really was focused. It’s a smear campaign Rupert Murdoch vs Ron Paul.
