    'A tribe is not a society'? Oh?
    I blame that misunderstanding on the mis-education system

    Like how you ignore the violence-lovers & warmongers bloated military budget, which is larger that that of the next 12 nations combined

    The wealth involved in those unfunded liabilities you are bleating about are to be found with the wealth-addicts
    Follow the money!
    America's wealth or missing wealth IS NOT WITH THE LITTLE PEOPLE ON WELFARE! They lack the skill to accumulate, own & control those amount$

    I can agree with a lot in that post; but there are also some misunderstandings/misrepresentations

    Capitalism IS MAN-MADE!
    & every man-made artifact has to be MANAGED & REGULATED!
    Man-made entities cannot grow & evolve naturally!

    Humans will make errors; but there was no 'mis-investment' in housing!
    There was the same kind of THIEVERY that took place with reagan's Savings & Loan Scandal: Allow the nation's wealth to wealth-addicts, & THEY WILL GAMBLE AWAY the 'easy money' & destroy the economy

    Ron Paul didn't lose. They had to cheat to stop him. Name one racist, bigoted thing that's ever come out of his mouth or in the writings that we know are his. Yeah, he's a Christian but he doesn't shove his religion down your throat.

    The fact that Ron Paul was, in the most dirty handed fashion, not allowed to speak at his own party's convention was a sign that something is very wrong. Special interests and corporate media decide our candidates for us. We live in an illusion of choice. But more Americans are realizing what's afoot, and fighting back. Ron Paul accomplished his mission, in a way, he's woken up many people and made them stand for something greater than himself. We'll get there if we don't give up.

    It's a sign that Republican Party won't put up with someone who claims he's 'for the people' but wants to hijack an election by hitting up representatives rather than getting the popular republican vote. What a fucking LOSER, Dr. Paul. Besides he's a proven racist, bigot, creationist, and evolution denier.

    WRONG DUMBFUCK. Sorry that you don't have any FACTS to dispute my own, but clearly it's always LOSERS like you who attack ADULT LANGUAGE because you have no facts on your side. SORRY DUMBFUCK! My brain is also bigger than yours on a biological level because being gay, I naturally have a larger Hypothalamus. (The VIP SCN nucleus of the hypothalamus is larger in men than in women, and larger in gay men than in heterosexual men.)

    Ron Paul -legalization of heroine/meth, removal of government-institued minimum wage (which would be mandated by workplace, encouraging poor people to work for lower wages), support for repeal of Roe v Wade, support for US withdrawl from UN, oposition to separation of church and state, repeal the gun control act removing any restrictions on ownership of guns (here's your gun mr thugnificent have a good day), and repealing tax credits for elderly/children. Theres your true American.

    Ron Paul...A man who failed miserably to make any difference whatsoever. A man who accomplished nothing. A man who is racist. A man who is anti-Semetic. A man who deludes his imbecilic followers with promises of "no more war", and "recreational drugs for everyone", but really means "Nigger beware" and "Faggots keep out" signs on the door of every business, and, if you have a heart attack, ask your neighbor to help. A man, who, as I first predicted more than eight years ago, will NEVER be POTUS.

    And so it goes on, a President is elected due to a king size storm? Am I reading right? Farewell Ron Paul, America, or should I say most people of America, will carry on eating too much, spending on credit and driving cars too big for their needs until the day comes when they have no job, no house, and no future. 2012 is the year when we start to realize that we can NEVER live the way we have for the last 50 years. We had our cake, we have eaten it, now we must start to gather and bake a new one

    The 150 million + people killed and tortured by the socialist movement last century is embarassing to human integrity. Those who condone theft murder and torture are the reasons we instituted government in the first place to protect our Life, LIberty, and Property. Unfortunately people like you enventually get into the positon of power (which is the whole reason for checks and balances) and turn our defense into a nightmare. It seems people like you will always find a way to manipulate freedom.

    It worked for them but what happens when socialists get a hold of something is far from the freedom to do things at your own pace and level. Im not fond of the far right either as it seems to be the same result.. the people are over used and not actually free. Freedom to decide and control your own life according to your own ability are things Dr. Paul promotes.

    8:21 What if you were pretty sure you knew what would actually cause an intellectual revolution- based upon the ideas alone, and could be disseminated quickly. I know it sounds crazy, but lets say you actually knew the words that it takes to break us free of enslavement. How would you present this information to the world? Everyone with a good idea seems to be humiliated.

    Are you a crazy person? Because you seem to be extremely paranoid, and you also seem to know what I'm thinking.
    In schools people should learn how to think, not what to think. Agree?
    Problem is that in alot of fields there really is a right and a wrong. If you are a geologist and think the earth is less than 10k years old you have not learned to think. Are you saying that teaching people that two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom equals water, is indoctrination?

    Until the populace of the USA decides that you must strive to educate yourself, commit to honest working jobs rather than living lifelong on welfare, and enlighten themselves upon the larger picture, we as a nation shall suffer the blight of the sheep leading our country. One man can only do so much. It takes a shift in the people's ethics, values, pride, and mentality from the sloth, arrogance, and the unwarranted self-importance in order to pull this country back to a great nation once more.

    A real Dr, doesn't deny women medical procedures on the basis of superstition, or deny empiricism and global warming. He is by no means an intellectual, and Libertarianism is embarrassing to human integrity.

    I wonder what would convince you, even in the face of direct evidence, you can't get yourself to admit that Finlands system is better. The evidence is there, just google it.
    I am not acting like the system have no cost, I'm saying that its free for the students. And that a tax finanzed system based on equality produce better results AND includes everyone.

    Don't even try to blame unions, they have done more for you than you can fathom.

    At least you admit you favor it for indoctrination purposes. God-forbid we have Students with critical thought skills. Who knows they may come up with new ideas and advance the world and that's the last thing you want.

    I was poor as they come and received a great education and learned critical thought opposed to memorization. I don't know why all you are talking about is money. You must get your information from obscure movies if you think only rich kids are hand-picked for good education. And Im not sure why you are acting like education there has no cost. Im sure the cost is high there for the same reason it is here, union greed.

    It will do you good to watch this: /watch?v=qlOfZL_J5fo

    Its about Finlands educational system. No grades or pressure, free to everyone, among the best results in the world.
    They take in and educate EVERYONE, and yet perform that good. Show me a private schools that does that. That is how you build a future, not by handpicking rich kids, or bury middleclass people in debt for the rest of their lives.

    Looking forward to your excuse about that one;)

    Are you a psychic? If so, you should change trade, because its not working for you:) Yeah, I want to "manipulate" schools into teachingh the truth, instead of saying that intelligent design and evolution is two equal theories, like in the US.

    There are many good individual schools in the US, but not really a feat when you handpick students and charge a ludicrous amount, is it?
    What benefit is that to the nation when you exclude 70% of the population? Close to nothing, same as healthcare.
