    Ron Paul was right not to go Independant. What would be the point in this corrupted election system? Just a waste of time , energy and money. The system has to be fixed first for third parties to get a chance to win. As usual, Ron Paul shows us his wisdom.

    You fail to grasp the difference(s): under communism the State directly owns the “means of production” and promotes its totalitarian ideology as well (official atheism, for example), while under fascism the State is a tool not of a gang of Marxist ideologues but of corporations, hence the term “corporatism”. Fascist states also suppress religion, but they do it under various guises.
    Both are police states and both try to run all aspects of peoples’ lives, but they are not identical.

    When did he say that? You dont understand the point, which I’m sure is par for the course for you. Dr.Paul’s point is, despite his best efforts to spread the messages of individual liberty and limited government, our country has continued moving down the road to our destruction. Over the last 30 years, Ron Paul has been demanding we hit the brakes, but ultimately, he could not change our course. If thats what you mean by “failure”, then I suppose youre right. But that is certainly not his fault.

    off topic:

    Ben Swann Exposes Barack Husein Obama on his NDAA lies!

    If you want to save our Freedoms — SPREAD THIS 3 minute video LIKE WILDFIRE!

    Our wannabe Lil’ Dictator (BHO) lies on all levels. And when he starts stuttering you know a Big Lie is about to follow (while stuttering his small brain is trying to formulate a reply that may not be noticed as untruth).
    ——————————————————-

    #1 Lie — Barack Hussein said he would Veto the NDAA (if passed). What a nice TRAP he laid for all these dunces that thought they could display “Patriotism” on the Floor (since then they could say: We voted for it, but the Prez Vetoed it).

    Then does the COMPLETELY OPPOSITE and signs this pernicious Unconstitutional document into Law on New Year’s Eve, when no-one is watching!

    When a Judge finds it, at a much later date, Unconstitutional, he, Barack Hussein, again breaks his word and sics his lawyers to overturn it in an Appellate Court (by some crony Judge) in a few days after the decision!

    So, we still have this pernicious and unconstitutional Law — courtesy of Barack Hussein — that allows American Citizens to be illegally whisked away ON SUSPICION ONLY without DUE COURSE OF LAW. And if they, such US Citizens, are never heard of again, it is because Barack Hussein has usurped the Powers of the Courts, since they are to be denied legal representation!

    And the list of the TRANSGRESSIONS AGAINST ALL AMERICANS by this Little Man, that occupies our White House, KEEPS GROWING!

    Here is proof of Barack Hussein’s PERFIDY!

    Republicans are the real dinosaurs and in danger of becoming obsolete. I don’t think they can ever win another presidential election to be honest. Their only hope is to let the libertarian wing gain more power. As soon the libertarian wing kicks the neo-cons out of power BAM!! Overnight the GOP will pick up the entire anti-war vote, the pro-civil liberties vote and at least half the youth vote. 3 large demographics that right now support democrats by huge margins.

    I used to be a Neocon.

    I have two words for Ron Paul: I’m sorry.

    I’m sorry for doubting you because of your anti-war stance.

    You’re 100% right about blowback and I’m sorry I didn’t realize that in 2008.

    To Ron Paul supporters: don’t give up on converting your fellow citizens.

    Be respectful, but show them the light. Many of them will come around if you give them a chance.

    Don’t give up on Rand, either. He will help you guys connect to conservatives. Trust me.

    Let’s do this, for liberty.

    I applaud your talents and the things you’ve accomplished with them. Now let’s go to work again and use them on accomplishing more before our star fades and we all end up back in the dirt. Although, that dirt is fertile soil for future generations to bloom from and is only the pits for a certain amount of time.

    Ron Paul is so genuine it’s difficult to believe he’s been in politics for as long as he has.

    Jews want to control the internet the way they control other forms of media.

    Jews are about 2% of the U.S. population, yet they have an extremely disproportionate amount of power in the media. And banking. And political lobbying.

    Even some Jews — including Ben Stein (Hollywood actor / producer) and Joel Stein (LA Times columnist) — have admitted that Jews control most media.

    Many people believe that Jews are very ethnocentric, and then hypocritically use the media to condemn “racism”.

    I think the issue is that money controls the parties and who will be president not the people’s choice.

    Hmm, I’ve never heard him deny the holocaust, but his anti Israel speeches are shocking, so who knows?

    Israel doesn’t really want us there, especially not the UN. They would rather defend themselves and die for their country, not have our soldiers die and then tell them what to do.

    The GOP screwed Ron Paul out of the nomination and he still thinks you can reform the Republican Party? The Republicans knocked out the Whigs with Lincoln and the Constitution or Libertarian Party can do the same to them.

    You wouldn’t understand because it’s well over your head. You see, people such as myself with extreme intelligence don’t need to pretend or fake to be something we are not. We ARE the best. You are just nothing. Unless of course you look inside. LOOK DEEP inside yourself. Then you will learn something and become something for the planet. Otherwise you are waste.
