    Ron Paul should be the Secretary of Treasury with Gary Johnson and Rand Paul as President and Vice President.

    They won't do anything once in office. These guys just go on talking about the popular debate at the time of election and hook on all the little fishies and tadpoles eagerly awaiting the next line of goodies. It doesn't matter who is supposedly your leader. It's already been bought. To get deeper take a look around and wake up. Your living in a dream. A dream that's about to end.

    No, the USA is "national socialist" in terms of its political and economic structures. The current form of socialism is fascism: government control and manipulation of and interference in key sectors of the economy while permitting widespread private ownership of industry. In all fascist states, however, the govt. favours the mega-corporations and banksters which really run things behind the scenes. In communism the State owns them, not vice-versa.
    In the end it's all the same for the people.

    They'd just rig the votes here too, if Dr Paul were here.
    What's important is that we build a truly Libertarian movement of our own.

    "You can get more money from a government contact, then by being a genius, and being productive." --- I hate freeloaders, this is so true...we are stifling the creative process and solid, hard working jobs in this country.

    The idea of freedom doesn't win because people want freedom for themselves but not for others.

    Look up Stefan Molyneux's youtube channel. He is a true philosopher. He admires Ron Paul but has criticized him on occasions.

    Some people love the craft of political hyperbole to explain their party's position on issues. Why not speak from personal conviction and experience

    Betraying his convictions wouldn't have won him the presidency. It would have only lost him supporters of real liberty movement. The game was rigged the whole time

    A shame so much innovation, creativity, energy, and goodwill on the part of regular, average Americans has been so wasted and so sidelined by people claiming "elitism." There is still a strain of decency, creativity, freedom-spirt, in the people. The "dumbing down" was first imposed (and radically) from above.

    With all do respect, he only would have won the presidency by betraying his convictions. Not only would that have made him less effective as a pro-liberty president, but it would have stained his outstanding political career. He made the right decisions and has my full support and appreciation.

    I try to continually check myself, that I'm not swooning to any messiah. That's a danger in times like these. And I find the resonance of Ron Paul's elucidation of constitutional principles thrilling. I try to carry the message, everywhere I go. Everyone I meet. Liberty through personal responsibility warms the heart.

    I'm talking about his run for president. He would be much more effective for the cause of liberty as president, but he refused to listen to people who told him that he was too extreme. Had he listened to the people, he would be president, and would have changed things. But he didn't

    I think you have missed the glory of his legacy. His contribution to the cause of liberty is infinitely more effective because he stuck to what he thought was right, instead of giving in to popularity to push one or two bills through.

    After the revolutionary militia takes down the corrupt government and carries out an American version of the Nuremberg Trials, Ron Paul will be appointed commander in chief
