    I don’t agree with that AT ALL. Santorum wants to take our freedoms away more than anybody and he quite frankly scares me with his hate and fear mongering. Have you really watched any of his speeches?? That guy is a COMPLETE nut. And to say hes conservative is ridiculous he has raised the dept ceiling SEVERAL of times. He is not conservative AT ALL, he doesn’t even believe in personal choice!!

    Maybe it is a frame of referene. In my world view FK is like getting kicked in the teeth. Oh well. Maybe I have not heard it enough to get used to it.. But yes I like Santorum and Paul. Not Obama. As President that is. I did not like Bush all that well. Romneys big problem is shifting when it is convienient. To the left To the right we cant trust him. WHen is he going to change his mind again. Paul or Santorum should suffice till 2016.

    Technically, the funds allocated by the federal government are coming from the American people. So, no; The federal government doesn’t have the right to just allocate funds. They do however have the responsibility to allocate funds accordingly to how the people decide they should be allocated. So, basically it’s an unjust system. The people should be allowed to keep their funds and allocate those funds in a manner that they so choose if they choose to at all.

    There is not enough DELEGAT PIE to go around. We are in trouble if Romney keeps the others fighting. THINK about a second choice. We either Slice the remaining pie in Santorums favor or Romneys. Santorum or Romney? If we dont jump on this NOW basically the total candidates delgates wil be somewhat evenly distributed. Romney simply has ride this out and YOURS and MY second choice also looses. Assuming it is not Romney Flip Flopper.

    Sheesh. You sound too much like a conspiracy theorist.

    Look. If your concerns are the national debt and our inability to return the United States to a sufficiently self-sustaining state, without depending on foreign debts to cover our spending. That’s fine. I get it. I’m all for getting us out of the shit hole. My point was Paul sounded like he was suggesting that the Fed Gov doesn’t have the *right* to allocate funds, not that they didn’t have the *means* to do so.

    Pass it on…

    ILLEGAL EVERYTHING — Must-Watch special aired on FOX! See it below:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?&v=CFfVeXhtRa0

    It is estimated that nearly 500,000,000 as of 2010 (and each year EVEN MORE are passed) — about 1/2 billion — NEGATIVE Laws/rules/regulations are on the books, meaning: “You, the US Citizen, cannot do 1/2 billion things, because we, the Government, have deemed such actions ILLEGAL.”

    More Negative Laws than the total count of US Citizens (including babies, children, and adults in our Nation)!

    The Arrogance of Office is best displayed by this pernicious Sophism: “Ignorance of the Law is no excuse”.

    No sane person can expect an individual to memorize all the names of the 312 million US Citizens — but same individual is expected to know the EXACTITUDE of ALL 1/2 billion LAWS (or be penalized for the IGNORANCE)?!

    The Great Roman Statesman Cicero stated: ‘The MORE Laws in a Nation, the LESS Justice for the Citizens’ — nearly 2000 years later, Cicero’s warning rings true: *More Laws = Less Liberty*!

    Only Ron Paul speaks out against this Government approved TYRANNY — the rest are silent-partners-in-crime!

    Polling the posters here:

    How many future States do you think Mitt Romney would win, if the 4 minute video below is turned into a succinct Ad — showing Mitt’s lifelong stand — and run many times on TV prior to elections?

    My take is: None!

    You don’t know what money is if you think monopoly money passes the sniff test. The only thing the federal government sends out is toothpick money from a cartel of fiat slavers that HATE you.

    The taxes you paid weren’t in real money either, so don’t pretend you aren’t part of the pyramid scam that leaves your neighbors as fiat debt slaves. The only way you can’t understand what I’m saying is if you benefit from the plantation and can’t afford to be honest.

    And you learn, don’t forget you shut up, you listen and you learn. So many people have awaken from the “American dream” thanks to Ron Paul.

    He said “There’s no SUCH THING” as federal money. He’s implying that the Federal Government doesn’t have the RIGHT to spend tax money, NOT that the deficit is too high and we “just can’t afford it”. That was the point I addressed.

    As for you, apart from your first two sentences, there’s no statement in your reply with any value for discussion. The rest is reserved for flaming. That’s not very efficient of you…is it?

    There is no federal money. They’re bankrupt and printing monopoly money to save themselves and buy up industries. While they promise you “federal dollars” you turn a blind eye to the enslavement and destruction of generations to come.

    Why? Do you benefit THAT MUCH that you’d risk having to someday tell these kids that you didn’t know what you were doing? I’ll tell them ALL you knew EXACTLY what you were doing, and didn’t give a rats ass about them. Reap what you sow pig.

    I still like Ron Paul for his honesty. And I like that he’s willing to tell his party and other conservatives things they don’t want to hear, but he loses me completely on things like this.

    “No such thing as Federal money” …? Um. They’re called taxes, congressman. And yes, they’re very real, and very necessary. Particularly in a time of emergency and disaster recovery.

    Realism before Idealism.
    …That’s kinda catchy. Would make a fine campaign sticker, don’t you think?

    Review:
    Santorum, too radical evangelical. too phony. But I like the grandpa big working hands story.Warmonger.
    Gingrich: Not interested. anyone who thinks he is too intelligent, he is probably not. Warmonger.
    Romney; too much wallstreet baggage. an ok person. war puppet.
    Ron Paul: good guy. honest. no illegal wars, no war for greed. need more clarity on how. This country needs him.

    Obama: the jury still out on economy and energy “all of the above” strategy. good commander in chief.

    Mitt Romney = Judas Goat

    If not aware of this olden days’ meaning — here it is:

    When sheep are led to be slaughtered, they instinctively feel something is wrong. So, mill around and bleat, but won’t enter the gate leading to the one waiting to smash their heads with a sledge hammer. So, a Judas goat is placed in the pen. The Judas goat is trained to associate with sheep or cattle, leading them through the gate, and passing it safely — while its own life is spared, the ones flowing get their brains bashed!

    Mitt will lead us — and at the end of the gate, Bama will wield the sledge hammer….

    Ron Paul is not a bad guy. Yahoo News Reporter did an excellent job highlighting him as a person and not a politician. It is rare we find any positive in the media about him, especially on big media sources.

    I agree with Ron Paul but while we’re all debating various issues I suggest least we all wake up August 28,2012 with two ROBAMANEY’S,and no Ron Paul,that every registered voter go to AMERICANS ELECT DOT ORG and insure that RON PAUL becomes the first Internet Party Candidate for President. Lets not find ourselves in a big jam November 6,2012 without a RON PAUL to vote for.
    “REFUSE TO LOSE” “DISRUPT THE CORRUPT”
    Freedom and Liberty for all in the fall Vote for RON PAUL

    Ron Paul is definitely NOT, racist. I think we can all attest to that. Ron Paul is a big believer in the “Golden Rule”. Didn’t Jesus teach us that? If so, why can’t any of the other Republicans respect that? They want to invade every fucking country on the planet. Well, maybe not ALL Republicans, but most, would say.
