    Free education is 1 of the 10 planks of the Communist Manifesto. Also, you do not have a "right" to anything that oblgates others to provide it for you.

    I think Ron Paul's ideas were kind of crazy, but I always enjoy hearing him speak. Much more inspirational and trustworthy than Obama will ever be. The guy is a doctor and freakin' delivers babies too! Veteran politician. Very impressive career and life.

    Disagree with Paul on the gold standard. No where in the constitution is the gold standard mandated. it say "congress shall have the power... to coin money, regulate the value therof" No mention of the gold standard. Can someone explain to me why I'm wrong in my analysis. Also, social security and medicare are constitutional. It's bad policy, but it's constitutional.

    This made me tear up. I love Ron Paul. people say he's crazy now, but people will look back 20 years from now and realize how right he was. Even though he failed at getting the primary or elected president (due to extreme media bias and propaganda), he sparked an awakening in this country that will continue to grow as his following continues to gain support. Ron Paul is a true patriot. Farewell, Dr. Paul.

    36:16 He is dead right it failed. But what and who was the cause of failure. Was it random events of history or conspiracy. Our Federal Schools teach the first and make no mention of the latter and we all know The Federal Government, as all goverments, always has the peoples best interest at heart (sarcasm intended). Why is it that the founders philosophy of gov. is omitted from our Federal education and only teaches us its mistakes? It must be another one of those random acts of history.

    Not irrelevant. The fact that Freddie and Fannie could have $1 of equity for every $1000 in debt (backed by tax dollars) allowed them to accumulate $5.5 trillion in liabilities, thereby driving the housing misinvestment. S&P and other rating systems are gov't mandated cartels malincentivized to give worthless ratings. These are thieves enabled by the gov't to act OUTSIDE of market forces. Without these things, they wouldn't have power to do any real harm. It's called CRONEYISM, not capitalism.

    Over half of the country is asleep. They are lulled to sleep by the BS they hear on the MSM and from puppets like obama and his appointed gang. The longer the ignorant sleep, the harder, longer and more horrible a comeback will be, if one is even possible. Until people want freedom once again more than free checks from slime balls, we don't have a prayer.

    Appreciate the sacrifices, a statesman in every sense of the word. I am now awake and fully engaged in a self study of economic principle and the philosophy of liberty.
    I hope to be able to carry the message beginning with my own sons and daughters encouraging education so that we can all weather the coming storm and the possibility of returning to the principles of the founding fathers.

    Absolutely correct. Many have not read the D.C. Organic Act of 1871. One clue he gives during this address: benefits & privileges. At birth, we automatically give up our natural rights for benefits and privileges. Another clue: "We only tried these ideas for around 100 years." - In one of his first 2012 presidential debates. America has been a corporation since 1871 - signed by Congress, unconstitutionally. The founders even predicted such things.

    Corporate regulation =/= bailout the companies when they fuck up, by the way. I never said I approved bailouts.

    I used to be a supporter of Ron Paul, and for those very reasons. Stop wasting money policing the world, don't help companies who fuck themselves over, and don't spend money on stupid shit.

    Then I learned he takes his ideals to an extreme fringe and realized, "Oh. Nevermind. Ron Paul is crazy." He can pry my right to free education from my cold dead hands. Also inb4 charity nonsense.

    Yes, and allow them to screw over the workers in the name of profit. Forget minimum wage, forget safe working conditions, why should corporations care about morality? Because we'll stop buying their product? HAH! If that were true, Apple would be bankrupt.

    And yea, sure, you believe that conspiracy about state education all you want. It's the fact that I went to school that makes me question the government to begin with. God help us if corporations get to decide what we learn. Also, *dumbed.

    I didn't agree completely with Ron. But, he was one of the top politicians I respected. It is a real loss. We need someone like Ron who fights for Liberty and the free markets like Ron in Congress. Thank you Ron for all your efforts. God Bless you.

    WRONG DUMBFUCK. Small companies compete with big companies all the time. I know thousands of folks who shop at local comic stores, shop at farmer's markets, who order from local retailers rather than online massive merchants, and such. You're full of shit and sure they have an advantage (the large corporations) but to call them monopolies shows you fundamentally don't understand business, commerce, or financial markets. Don't talk about shit you don't understand, cunt.

    Thank you, Dr Ron Paul. I am sad you are leaving, and I hope you will remain one of our voices of reason and ration and truth. We all need you. Now more than ever. And we need to become voices ourselves. From this individual you received a standing ovation for your farewell speech. Don't let it be farewell, please.

    It so strange that really only some of the best or just decent politicians such as JFK or Lincoln are the ones assassinated and the horrors of this time are left to live, no problem. I'm not saying I think some people deserve death, but if they must... well, let's just say I was hoping to hear gunshots when I was watching Mitt Romney's nomination acceptance speech...

    Yeah and I think he also said make them responsible, thus allow them to fail, there would have been fewer big corporations if they didn't get bailed out so much, or helped by regulation that stifles competition.
    And why the heck would you want state sponsored education, kids get educated how the politicians want them to be educated, kids are being dumped down instead of being made smarter. Smart, critical thinking, people are less manageable and are not as easily manipulated.

    Ron Paul is the living proof that presidential election process in this country is totally broken. Anyone left in the government not after money, power, privilege for themselves?

    I thought our economy was messed up because OPEC jacked up oil prices in 1971, then again in 2001.

    'When you are constantly moving forward,
    searching for the cutting edge,
    everyone behind you
    always believes you have gone too far.

    The further back from the cutting edge they are,
    the more extreme, and indeed insane,
    you appear to them, to be.

    In this way, one person's "madness"
    can be another's commonsense.'
    ~ David Icke
