    Obama has improved the US’s reputation internationally and in the short term has reduced the risk of terrorism.Obama is idolised for having taken out bin Laden after no demonstrable achievement on that front despite the posturing as ‘world’s policeman’ during the 8 years of the Bush presidency. In many countries, the media won’t allow a bad word about Obama. He got the Nobel prize.
    Meanwhile, the Republicans are demonised. The global media blame the Republicans for causing the global financial crisis. They also mock the hunt for ‘weapons of mass delusion’ in Iraq, point to how Saddam suppressed al-Qaida more effectively there than the US did, to how 100,000 civilians have been killed, and to how the Christian population there has been persecuted since the US-led invasion. Etc.
    If Romney or Gingrich were to beat Obama, the US’s name would be mud again, to the detriment of US citizens abroad. It is unfortunate but true that there is a stigma against Mormons and throughout the Christian west outside the US Romney is seen as a whacko fruit cake Mexican who wears ‘sacred underpants’ and believes Jesus lives on planet Kolob.
    Gingrich is seen as a narcissistic sociopath with less sexual morality than Bill Clinton, and no personal integrity.
    You would be drawn into more wars, after having already squandered 4 trilllion dollars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Can you afford more of this profligate spending?
    How much have you spent on your war on drugs, that could have been better spent?
    Cannabis may contribute to schizophrenia in a sub-population of its users who are genetically pre-dsisposed, but it also delays and slows the progression of Alzheimers dementia. Go through the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the USA. How many of your citizens died early because of your police state, because you did not value liberty, because you did not hhave the scientific research facts when you told them to ‘just say no’, and over decades in your huge population, what was the financial impact of that?
    I can’t believe how much you guys are into big government, big spending, suppression of liberty. You practise state capitalism, on a different model to the Chinese, but it’s still like communism.
    Romney, Gingrich, or Obama would represent more of the same.
    But, to be realistic, how likely are Romney or Gingrich to beat Obama? Would people who usually vote Democrat vote for them? I doubt it. However, given his libertarian stance, many who would otherwise vote for Obama would vote for Ron Paul.
    He is your only hope. And unfortunately it looks like he is going to be beaten.
    For goodness sake, if Romney or Gingrich are constitutionally ineligible, then do something about it.
    You should be hammering the theme over and over again that both Romney and Gingrich could have served your country in Vietnam if they had wanted to, but didn”t. That they chickened out.
    You have some goood TV advertising. But it’s not enough.
    Photos of Ron Paul in his air force officer uniform, and the quote about him from Ronald Reagan should feature prominently in your TV advertising, juxtaposed with references to Gingrich’s and Romney’s records of non-service when they could have served.
    You should be running a negative, as well as positive, campaign, because negative campaigns work. You should be lobbying CNN, and recruiting Murdoch to switch his support from Santorum. You should be recriting Bill and Melinda Gates, and Warren Buffet.
    A Ron Paul presidency would restore your country. It would also be a huge plus for the whole world.
    Please don’t stuff this up.

    Why doesn’t Ron Paul speak out about 0bama’s ineligibility? This issue needs to be addressed now because Romney and Santorum might not be Constitutionally-eligible either. And Gingrich is hinting that he will ask Rubio, who we know is ineligible to be POTUS, to be his running mate.

    “Obama learned his lesson well. I am proud to see that my father’s model for organizing is being applied successfully beyond local community organizing to affect the Democratic campaign in 2008. It is a fine tribute to Saul Alinsky as we approach his 100th birthday.” –Letter from L. DAVID ALINSKY, son of Neo-Marxist Saul Alinsky

    Obama helped fund ‘Alinsky Academy’: “The Woods Fund, a nonprofit on which Obama served as paid director from 1999 to December 2002, provided startup funding and later capital to the Midwest Academy…. Obama sat on the Woods Fund board alongside William Ayers, founder of the Weather Underground domestic terrorist organization…. ‘Midwest describes itself as ‘one of the nation’s oldest and best-known schools for community organizations, citizen organizations and individuals committed to progressive social change.’… Midwest teaches Alinsky tactics of community organizing.”

    Hillary, Obama and the Cult of Alinsky: “True revolutionaries do not flaunt their radicalism, Alinsky taught. They cut their hair, put on suits and infiltrate the system from within. Alinsky viewed revolution as a slow, patient process. The trick was to penetrate existing institutions such as churches, unions and political parties…. Many leftists view Hillary as a sell-out because she claims to hold moderate views on some issues. However, Hillary is simply following Alinsky’s counsel to do and say whatever it takes to gain power.

    “Obama is also an Alinskyite…. Obama spent years teaching workshops on the Alinsky method. In 1985 he began a four-year stint as a community organizer in Chicago, working for an Alinskyite group called the Developing Communities Project…. Camouflage is key to Alinsky-style organizing. While trying to build coalitions of black churches in Chicago, Obama caught flak for not attending church himself. He became an instant churchgoer.” (By Richard Poe, 11-27-07)

    I sure this has been a topic, VOTER FRAUD, can we organized an online protest or send thousands of emails, phone calls whatever to the US Attorney’s office. We need to fix this early and fast or is that there plan just to say” yes there was voter fraud” and move slowly and thoroughly screw this election and address the problem later

    I trully pray for the American people having trained there in Texas from Kenya. You must ensure Ron Paul wins this race for the sake of humanity. Without Ron Paul the whole world will lose liberty like it happened in WW2. Please spread the word and do not tire to ensure the revolution is remains alive.

    I wonder why we haven’t heard more about this http://www.WasObamaBornInKenya.com, it really looks quite ligit. I wonder why noone investigates this type of thing. I really believe OB shouldn’t even be in the WH to be able to sign our rights away. I also saw an interview with OB where he was discussing the constitution, he said it’s an old document that really doesn’t apply so much these days! I thought this was what he swore to uphold.

      Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution specifies that, to be President or Vice
      President, a person must be a natural-born citizen of the United States, at least 35
      years of age, and a resident of the United States for at least 14 years. This is 4 years of a dead debate. If he was not a natural-born citizen of the United States, he would have not be able to run for president!

    Honestly, The media tells us what we think we want to hear. How can we trust anyone who runs for President? Especially when the Government does what it wants to do anyway? It seems as if the Presidential Position is a fancy title for the governments spokes person. It’s been almost 16 years since we’ve seen the white house actually make a difference for the greater good, without causing any chaos, and since America was at an okay standing! Now and days, if your suspected of being a terrorist in the USA our own country and without evidence, you can be locked up! Where is all of our hard working money actually going? And this country is supposed to be free? Now we have to live life looking over our shoulders waiting for a bomb to drop due to pissing off other countries! I guess we’re all supposed to live in fear acoording to the media. Wheres the freedom in that? What a HUGE difference from only 16 YEARS ago! It also seems it doesn’t matter whether we chose to be a democrat or republican, because eitherway we’re doomed! For example: from Bush to Obama. I really hope Ron Paul can make a change! But again, will Ron Paul be a Government Spokesman, or will he fight to find a way to get the government to cooperate? I guess thats a risk I’m willing to take!

    I would argue that Mr Paul serilously consider a third party run and then perhaps throw this election into the House of Representatives.Take chances there.The republican Party has become a party of neocons whose foreign policy consists of bullying and violence — wars which are fought by America’s minorities and paid for by the stuggling middle class.

    I would argue that now Ron Paul should serilusly consider a third part bid. Then,perhaps,he might even get equal time on the campaign trail.But even then,I would hope that the election would then go to the House of Representatives and then we take our chances there.

    I think instead of listening to or Obama or other politicians as most of them cannot or will not deliver what they say, we should monitor actual results on what have actually accomplished which is hardly any.

    I agree with one of the comments that states even though Ron Paul is our choice we should not be thinking of him as a literal savior, I believe with all of my heart that it won’t matter one bit who is president of this country if we continue to dishonor GOD and ignore HIS laws. I am on the band wagon for Ron Paul but it frightens me we that we ignore God in this way, the book we should be recommending is the Holy Bible. I realize this is politics and everyone is engrossed in it, but we are making a grave mistake leaving God out of this picture. An opinion…no need for swearing at me or calling me names :)

      Ron Paul is not leaving God out of the picture. In a country which has no national religion, but instead allows all people to worship in their own way, guaranteed by the Constitution, a President or candidate cannot make religious recommendations. Go to http://www.ronpaul2012.com and study what ron Paul says about his views on religion.

      Religion has no place in politics. Moral men don’t have to stand behind a book or pulpit, God is with them every step and every choice they make.

      God’s laws were written down by human hands. I believe in my heart that I feel what is right and what is wrong. Obviously if I’m causing pain/anguish to those around me, that does not truly feel right to me. If I care sincerely for others and give happiness and peace, I feel that is right. I don’t think a book that was written by human hands does justice to what God’s intentions of love and peace are. The only thing that God has written, according to the bible, is the 10 commandments. They were 10 short simple commandments that make logical sense to anyone. Sometimes the wrong people can become in charge and they have and have taken these 10 commandments and have tried to change them in their favor to oppress those who believe in them by adding long “explanations” to them. Once they are oppressed to believe what you want them to, you can start adding anything else you want to and they’ll believe you because “you have the connection with God” when they do not.
      Handing out Holy Bibles isn’t the answer. We should be handing out the US constitution, Declaration of Independence, and the 10 commandments.

    It is amazing how few people realize that money that is making capital gains has already been taxed. Think about it this way, when you go out and buy a stock on your own or make an investment (not via a 401K), you are using after tax dollars. The tax on the gain is a tax on top of a tax. The best solution is to drop the normal income tax for everyone to below 15% by cutting spending. Another good idea would be to create a graduated scale for capital gains. ie your first 40K of income via capital gains is tax free. The next 60K is at 5%, next 100K is at 10%, next 100K is at 15% and have that top out around 30% or so. This would be good for normal everyday 9-5 workers investing in stocks, and small buisinesses that aren’t making a killing. If Obama TRULY wanted to build from the bottom up, he must understand that small business needs low taxes. I have some concerns still though that if we over-tax the millionaires, less jobs will be created and investments my go overseas. That’s why the graduated scale is still my 2nd pick as a compramise to the democrats.

    I think Obama demonstrated one very important thing last night: He is excellent in the art of B.S. Unfortunately, this is all it takes for a large majority of people to agree with and support him. If you don’t really listen to or understand what he is saying, it sounds pretty good!

    I am a stead-fast supporter of Ron Paul, however I do have one criticism, for those who really don’t listen to or understand what he is saying, the manner in which he speaks can be somewhat annoying. (I say this out of love).

    PLEASE Dr. Paul, try to be more elegant and firm in how you speak in the upcoming debates. You must reach the people that want honey poured in their ear – the billy-goat types with the blank stares (Obama and Romney supporters). They don’t have the inclination or capability to understand, but, we need their votes too.

    Romney and Gingrich are clowns and no one really wants to support them. They just want Obama out!

    Dr. Paul, please change your tone to one of strong leadership rather than someone complaining about things from the side-lines. Your campaign management needs to sharpen up and get with it because you haven’t been coming off as a “Presidential type”.

    I know that it isn’t likely that Ron Paul will see this post. If you are reading this and agree, please echo it and perhaps the general gist of this might reach him.

      I think the way Dr Paul speaks is the TRUTH.

      It shows he is humble, passionate about what he speaks and speaks from the heart. No speech writers there.

      He is not slick like Romney, nor as eloquent as Gingrich, but he is real and genuine and it shows.

      It is time for the American public to wake up and not be seduced by good speeches, like Obama gave, or like Newt or Romney are elocuting. They need to look at substance.

      If you believe the POTUS is ‘above’ us.. then yes, you will subscribe to the fact that he should get a ‘presidential salary’, a ‘presidential palace’ and toys ‘fit for a king’… only he is NOT A KING.

      Ron Paul is the closest thing to a genuine run-of-the-mill all American in congress. He’s even suggested reducing the president’s salary to the median income of the country ($39,000).

      On the other hand if people vote for a ‘good speaker’ then they will get exactly the kind of president they deserve. Obama is proof of that.

    I can’t listen to Obama speak. He speaks too well, it’s too easy to fall into the rhythm he sets and listen without objectivity. Part of me wishes that Ron Paul had that ability, just to enable him to compete with these other politicians at that game, but for the most part I’m happy to just be able to listen to someone’s logic, rather than be swayed by the prettiness of their words and voice.

    For Obama’s speeches, then, I read the text. It helps to be able to see what he is proposing, and spot the flaws in his reasoning. Yes, this was a campaign speech. He pandered to what people wanted to hear and spun his actions to sound pleasant instead of justifiably alarming. Key issues such as the NDAA bill weren’t even mentioned, but he made sure to bring up points that have brought Dr Paul much support. After what he’s done to the country, and what his record on promises shows, I simply don’t believe any of the good stuff.

    We don’t need what he’s selling. We simply need to be able to make do for ourselves, without having to pay ‘the man’ every time we turn around, or having to beg permission (and pay extra money) to do business.

    So thank you, Dr Paul, for standing up for my right to be my own person and make my own way.
