This time i voted yes because this survey hit me twice,,
If Dr. Paul feels as though He can Survive the enormous wast of time i am sure he can count on supporters.One day men of His Honour will Rest in the Peace and Freedom Knowing we can handle it from this point,,,His Inspiration is resounding around the world. God Bless Ron Paul..
May He Live Forever Free and I never Die a Slave.
He should enjoy his retirement. He has done far more for the movement than could have been expected of one man. Even though Ron’s political leanings line up more with mine than his sons do, I think that Rand has a good solid platform to stand on.
I answered that Ron Paul should not run but that his son Rand should. Ron’s positions are spot on with what this country needs but I’m not sure he has the right personality and demeanor to be the best possible candidate. Ron would be much better suited to have an organizational/supporting role. More importantly, I am convinced that Ron, Andrew Napolitano and other influential libertarian leaning voices should forget about the Republican party and either form a new libertarian leaning third party or infuse themselves into the current Libertarian party. The Republican party is firmly controlled by those who will never abandon the religious right’s positions regarding the federal goverment’s intrusion in social issues and those who believe in the U.S.’s military domination of the world. They will never adopt true libertarian beliefs on these issues and which is what turns off a majority of moderate democrats and independents who may otherwise support a Republican candidate.
This leave the media issue. It’s also time for libertarians to seriously organize themselves and form a new national news channel (my suggestion is LNBC – Libertarian National Broadcasting Corporation) which will not marginalize the libertarian position and candidates. Clearly FOX showed it will never support a candidate like Ron Paul due to his position on the military and leaving issues like abortion up to the states. Just look what they did to Judge Napolitano when he continued to voice support for Ron Paul. Funding for a news network could easily be obtained – I’m sure there are enough Ron Paul supporters to fund this through share purchases in a new corporation and/or donations. You can be sure the current media outlets will be one of the biggest hurdles in getting the libertarian message out to the voters. Much of the public, like myself, is totally fed up with the media’s control by the left and right wing elements within both current parties and would welcome the opportunity to see Judge Napolitano anchor the evening news on LNBC!!!!!
Ron Paul and his son as vise president should run however there’s a problem, when Ron Paul was attempting to complete this time around what I noticed was that the media stations only showed Mitt and his views and Obama, and not Ron Paul? In other words, the vote in rigged for sure and the only way to compete next time around would be to do things or say’t things where the media would be forced to show him or express his views; it would have to be radical. I am afraid we been hoodwinked this election and it’s so obvious how the media funnels people perception down to the winner. The media purposely blocks any notion that the Federal Reserve is unconstitutional and it’s the shadow government or Fed who’s calling the shots.
Ron Paul: You’re Not FREE if you Can’t Secede from an Oppressive Government
“In a free country, governments derive their power from the consent of the governed. When the people have very clearly withdrawn their consent for a law, the discussion should be over. If the Feds refuse to accept that and continue to run roughshod over the people, at what point do we acknowledge that that is not freedom anymore? At what point should the people dissolve the political bands which have connected them with an increasingly tyrannical and oppressive federal government? And if people or states are not free to leave the United States as a last resort, can they really think of themselves as free?”
Spread this 4 minute message like wildfire!
The District of Columbia (Washington, DC) — where the White House and all Federal Governmental Agencies reside — have passed the point by their anti-American-anti-Constitution ACTIVITIES that they have FORFEITED THE RIGHT to be called the USA. De facto, THEY have already SECEDED from the Union by constitutional default, and any State that wants to secede from THEM is a State that wants to RETURN BACK to the original CONSTITUTIONAL USA!
In current shape Ron Paul has no chance to win 2016 at all. He is the proper man to be president, and I have full support for him, but …
– voters will not vote for him because his old,
– he claims return to constitution and liberties, which are good but OLD ideas,
– he is too polite in the main stream media and thus seem to be soft (or even weak),
So in my opinion Ron Paul could:
– play the game in the way to gain popularity also in main stream media, so it requires to be more tough and little controversial and act more like a fighter, show some claws, because public loves that
– introduce some new ideas, besides the liberty and constitution, as that would feel like something new will come, and not that country is turning back in time
– feel more and more confident, especially at public debates (by smiling at ridiculous args) and create atmosphere like he is the boss
– limit or cut the discussion about drugs legalization or transform it to general liberty discussion
– talk about the great future they shall have with his precidency (not only how BAD it is today, but what will come GOOD)
– talk in a more understanable fashion (I suppose most Americans do not undestand
the rules of market and sound economy, but they understand terms: jobs, salary, IRA etc.)
For me, that is the only guarantee of making chances to win. You need to play they rules, win, and then change the rules.
He is the only man I would trust to try & Re Store this country.
What a desparate country we are as of 2012. God help us we are in trouble. We must not go down without a fight. We must ignight a burning passion for true freedom for all people.
My beloved 7 Billion Human Species near and far distant country, please step forward and tell your governments, and leaders to use gold as the only level Asset of the banks and do not believe in paper bonds is only a plan paper… believe in Gold, Silver, Platinium as the only Insurance of your nation do not sell it offshore, please follow the Great China, Russia, India and Pakistan, and many more are holding back their God given rich mineral resources on their Motherland.
You must believe in Senator Ron Paul, vote for him and start voting him now because the truth of Gold as Poeples Lives, nationa Insurance is approaching soon.
Thank you for allowing me to say my simple state of mind. If the world population is growing over 7 Billion every seconds of a clock, some body like Fmr Senator Ron Paul who believes in Gold as true bankable and financial SAFE HEAVEN for the past 5,000 years and the next 5,000 years starting 2013 which is very, very , very true…because the Almighty God the creator of our planetary Earth and over 500 Billion galaxies around us, made GOLD in the land of Havilah for the Human species you and me to utilized as our Solid Lives Insurance, Collateral, Level 1 asset, Equity base and have access to any man made banks to borrow mini loans and create small businesses for our and children and gran children daily survival, and also avoid borrowing other nations money as fiat collateral and be treated ad Reserves which has no validity and value at all and only Gold has which is the truest Reserve of the Banks, Central banks of the world… but the public never ever being told about it.
No wonder, the world is in trouble of Credits and debt in Billions to Trillions now very, very very , very difficult to pay its lenders!!!… which Senator Ron Paul always trying to fix the Great America to quickly go on gold to pay off its now running up skyways neary evry day towards US-$16 Trillion and by year 2016 the USD Debt will be US-$20 Trillion no wonder the Great China, Russia Pakistan, Brazil, India and other nations are holding back its rich mineral resources and not allow to sell offshore started 4 years ago.
The point is very clear that who holds gold leverage the Nations Financial Fiscal and Economy, but with out gold, the nations will be led to Economic Chaos, and it is happening nearly every nations now such as European Union Nations who first believes in Fiat currency is going back to gold… this is now a serious business and no government or law will stop this plan, because the effects are ahmpering all the businesses already, businesses are closing down and laying of hundreds of its employees neary every month of the year.
Senator Ron Paul has the answer and may be no other US Senator have that guts like Ron Pauls who have been struggling for many years, but the Americans never and really dont understand Ron Paul better, because the schools, of banking and economics has taught you wrongly that Gold has no value which is the blantest lie on the planet Earth on faces of the Human beings.
The truth will rise soon like the rise of the Pheonix, and those who try to escape of not telling the truth about the true use of GODs Gold for his special human specy of which HE scoope the soil and mould Adam and Eve to survive on will be to late to run…. and the day is near already.
More information is waiting to come from every corner of the earth so soon. Yes, Senator Ron Paul you a a Great Hero of the USA, and the Global Population of 7 billion can vote for you to run as President of USA in 2016 without any hesitation and fear, because is God the Almighty will guide you in every step you take like Enoch who was with God for 365 years and he disappeared. God took him to Him.
I would love to see him run in 2016 but I don’t think his age will permit this my vote would be for his son rand paul and michigan senate member justin amash for vp
It would be great if Dr. Paul has the health and energy to run in 2016 but I think realistically the movement should start looking for multiple up and coming revolutionary thinkers with the gift of gab and public charm. We need to start infiltrating all public offices at as many levels as possible with as many of us as possible. If you can’t run for a local office in your area then be an active volunteer. Too many of us are armchair participants. We all need to actively participate! Get involved any way you can ASAP. 2016 is just around the corner. Chop chop!
I am not a US citizen but once had a green card. It saddens me to see what the past government have and are doing to a wonderful people. They have forced the US into wars and made them unpopular in many parts of the world – and eroded liberty. I would also try emigrate to Texas and bring what skills I have if Ron Paul brought back the constitution in Texas. Go Ron.
No. He should run for governor of the state of Texas and help us teach the rest of the nation how we can restore the Constitution and exact constitutional adherence in our electorate through state sovereignty and nullification. If we do not restore state sovereignty we will never truly restore individual liberty.
Lead Texas in succeeding from the U.S. and become its’ president based on the constitution. I will move my family there. It is too late for America.
The elections are rigged against the people. We are fed crap from the media. The two primary parties will not give up their power for any reason. Ron Paul was a strong candidate but GOP and democratic corruption did him in. I watched what happened.
The next election in 2016 is an election we need to boycott entirely. stay away from the Polls. Let the terms of office run out and have no replacements elected. Then we can get our government back to us. The reality of this is the labor unions, corporations, and others who get money from the government will vote for us and someone will be elected whether we like it or not. That person will once again only represent the constituents that paid the huge donations and superpacs to get them elected.
As for the Libertarian community, its there but not in huge powerful numbers. Continue to spread the word about libertarian views and move the sheep this way. It only takes a limited few to move millions to the right frame of mind.
Most people will always follow what the popular trend is regardless of what they actually know about something. It’s time to play dirty by smearing the Republican and Democratic parties to expose their dirty deals and tax favoritism with the wealthiest.
Ron Paul is the man who understands. Understanding the human body is a metaphor for understanding EVERYTHING else.
Don’t worry, Ron. Those “no” votes are from people who just want you to relax and enjoy your so-well-earned retirement. But, like George Washington, we must call you into service yet again.
People! Wake up! America did not vote for Ron Paul in 2008 nor 2012. They will not vote for him in 2016. Get a grip. It’s too late. We are beyond the place where Ron Paul can help us.
The Economy Is Going To Implode Pt.1 of 8
Watch all 8 parts. They are taking this country down.
It would have been a dream to have Ron Paul as president with Andrew Napolitano as the VP but it’s not realistic to believe that enough people write-in a winning candidate. If enough people wanted him to win he would have done better in the primaries. I think the election was rigged and Romney was actually the winner but it would have been rigged against RP too. The False Prophet is in the White House and RP has a revolution to attend to! He is much more popular now than when I first heard about him.
