    Well I'm not too hot on some democrats either. I'm a leftist, there are things I feel the current administration has not done. He hasn't ended the drug war, he hasn't ended the drone strikes, he hasn't shut down these stupid arguments about "clean" coal, he hasn't drastically increased taxes on the wealthy, and hasn't increased investments to education. Ron Paul might be right on the first two, but on the other ones he has all the wrong ideas.

    Did you even listen to his speech all the way through? More than not caring about wether your black, white or other. He expressed empathy greater than the word
    "tolerance" might suggest to some people. In the same way he says in more ways than one that whatever you do consensually or in the privacy of your own home is your choice!

    and I agree that as a person, Ron Paul is a gem of a person. I don't agree with his solutions though. I think we need a larger government, with more programs helping people, and tax the 1% more.

    Because I think a larger government not a smaller one is the solution to our problems. The solution to get us out of this hole isn't less government spending, its more. I think there are many government programs that do more good than the free market ever could, and Congressman Paul wants to do away with all of them. Things like education shouldn't be up to the whims of the market, education is a right.

    What impoverished public? America has some of the lowest tax rates in the world! Look at the tax code, the impoverished part of the public pays very little taxes. I should know, I'm one of them. The problem with this country is that very rich people refuse to pay taxes because they think that some how their wealth will trickle down, and in other circumstances, they might be right, but right now they're just sitting on their wealth and we all suffer. Step in the Government and screw them over.

    exactly both guys bashed China and no chance can they take on China at this time with China becoming the new super power of the world. Ron Paul's policies have always been truthful, he stated himself that american occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan should of never happened and here we stand corrected

    its just saddening to see someone who was trying really hard to change the system has now gone.

    I'm a progressive, I'm against wasteful spending, but I'm also against getting rid of it completely. There are things that the government SHOULD invest in, like green energy (and don't give me the Mitt Romney argument, because only 3 of 36 companies failed), education by helping bright minds of all backgrounds achieve their potential. Ron Paul is right on many things but he is dead wrong about the role of government. There are things the market cannot solve, and that's where we need government.

    A man among boys. He was our last, best hope. Rand Paul may pick up his mantle and champion all of his causes, I hope he does.

    His ideas are inspiring, specially those on foreign policy and the federal reserve system, he fits very well with the people at TED. It's extrememly rare to find a politician with a mind of his own, he certainty has one.
