    Guys like Ron Paul in USA are the reason USA stays amongst the top destinations for migration for all those educated, talented and bright people around the world. One day, America will be no more a military industrial complex as global military complexes will continue expanding. And then will be the time to reap the fruits of true "American Spirit" like Ron Paul said. That day will come but it requires patience for Americans, alas that comes only through spiritual journeys. :)

    I think Ron Paul should really appreciate what he has done and has and continues to spread. He has done more than what he gives himself credit for.

    Lost faith in this world. It's a complete mess, and just gets worse. Pray that higher beings or God or both get us out of here, and leave this earth for good. The warmongers and greed barons can have it. Get the rest of us out of here. Come one, Ron, lead the way home. This place is for the truly lost. Let 'em have it. I'm onto praying for release for everyone sick and tired of trying to get through to those that just create more and more suffering for everyone but themselves.

      Sorry Jim,-- God, Aliens, or whatever will not be coming to our aid - not this time. The problems we face are vastly complicated an deeply rooted in ancient human instincts, ritual and culture, and although they served us well when we were wandering about the savannas and forests of this planet, these same "survival skills" do us a tremendous disservice today as we try to live and coexist together in organized societies. The results of greed and the lust for wealth, power and control, plus greedy agenda-driven politicians working in governments that are in bed with multinational corporations, banks, and the planet's wealthiest families have led us to the place we are today. As our country and the surrounding world tears itself to pieces, the vast majority of humans just sit home content to watch their football games, American Idol, and the other mindless commercial broadcasts. People are more interested in watching King of the Hill and pay more attention to what Oprah did today than to what's going on in Washington D.C.. And on top of all this we have global religious conflicts as old as the human race where every religion on the planet absolutely believes that theirs is the "REAL" deal; theirs is the only true God. Everyone else is either an infidel or a heathen. It's "Us verses Them". And of course God is going to come down here and save us, right. I doubt it! And if "He" did save us, what lessons would we learn? Unfortunately, history clearly shows that "God" has never ever "saved" the world, but for those with a religious bent, it sure as hell has taken the credit for destroying it a time or two with floods, famines, plagues, etc. So far, we haven't ever been "saved" by any god, but more people have been assaulted, tortured and murdered from religious persecution over the centuries than from any wars or natural disasters. Study the past 5000 years of world history and you will see. Indeed, if we want to be "saved" we as a society and World Family will need to wake up and pay attention and shed the petty human biases and antiquated habits and instincts. Everyone needs to realize that we are all on the same side here. It's just a little planet and unfortunately we all have to live upon it - or die. God - in whatever form one chooses to believe, has already given us the tools and wisdom we need to accomplish this. As said in at least three of the world's great religious books," The truth has been written upon their hearts". Our DNA has already been coded and the programs of morality, cooperation, decency and integrity have already been written and should be running to guide us. But we as a human society have to carry them out. The choice is ours. There will be no cavalry riding over the mountain to save us. The Creator will help us where needed, but We must do the work to save ourselves. It is We who must figure things out and learn to get along. The lessons are difficult and nothing would ever be learned if aliens or God comes to our rescue. It can be no other way.

      They dislike or hate him because they have no understanding.

      They also lack widsom.

      Widsom and understanding come from above! (GOD).

    Ron Paul is a man who was ahead of its time.
    He CAN solve the problems, not just talking about them.
    That is why in my country people not even heard of him, total media blackout.

    Who is this interviewer? He was desperately trying to bait Ron Paul into naming AIPAC as the "most damaging special interest group." The astute Dr. Paul didn't fall for it. Although he's retiring from public politics, he still has to remain a statesman or he'll "discredit" himself and the Liberty movement. Too bad, because I wish he could just tell it like it is about Israel, 9/11 Truth, the Federal Reserve, the NAU, so many NWO issues where truth is officially forbidden.

    This may be a cynical view but I believe that the majority of the young voters who went for Obama just did it because of his last minute suck up to the LGBT community. Dare I say some of these kids don't really care or even fully understand the situation, they just think that the somewhat rebellious tolerance of gay marriage is cool ("stick it to the old wrinkly republicans" kind of thing)... rather than realizing that in a free society it should simply be a given.

    RP does not go far enough. He should talk about privatization of roads and infrastructure, all schools, all government provided health, privatizing the police force, privatizing much of what the courts do ,he should keep talking about climate change and how we need the free market NOT MORE government to fight climate change (yes its real ppl), he should talk about Murray Rothbard anarcho-capitalism a bit more..OH A HE SHOULD START BELIEVING IN EVOLUTION! BUT THANK YOU RP FOR EVERYTHING! :)

    What a tragic irony Dr. Paul points out - that the largest special interest group is the masses of people who simply want liberty, and by our very nature we have the quietest voice in Washington. Think about it... The largest single group in the whole country and we have NO lobbying group. Our "representatives" are designed to represent everyone BUT us. They use our votes to reach office, and then hold out their palms to every lobbyist. And the blame comes full circle. Look in the mirror.

    I think one of the most interesting things coming out of the 2012 election is how voters 18-29 carried the day for Obama. Obama killed both McCain and Romney in this age group and he would have killed any other GOP candidate in this age group, except one.

    RON PAUL

    It tells you that young voters simply don't believe the GOP message, but that message carried some weight when the guy delivering it truly believes it. And Ron Paul wants even smaller government than the GOP.

    Luckily it did not became a law, but just to give you an idea how fucking stupid our politicians actually are. If you think US congressmen seem stupid think Sweden, where right is wrong. we have a total tax rate above 50% of bnp and the stupid socialists call this tax record low, we take in more immigrants 150 000 immigrants every year even tough we have rising unemployed and housing shortage, and that's not all a person with no edu from somailia get more money in welfare than a working swede-.-

    I guess that means Ron Paul didn't see Gary Johnson as an alternative? I know I didn't.

    As sick as it sounds, the best thing that could happen for the U.S. is to have the dollar completely crash & become worthless. Perhaps then the Federal Reserve could be buried for good and replaced by a legitimate currency that isn't indebted to a foreign banking cartel & their interest on loans. It would be nice to say backed by a gold standard like RP says but I fear all U.S. gold has been stolen and moved offshore. It would also render the wealthy hoarding tons of cash instantly penniless.

      I totally agree. Both Iraq and Libya were moving toward a gold based currency. Libya had enough gold to do it. Libya was uniting Africa, going to have a single gold based currency for all of Africa and sell Africa's minerals and oil only for gold and not dollars. The bankers used the Corporation military to kill the leaders of Iraq and Libya because of the above. Our gold and any gold belonging to other countries that we can steal (9/11 Tower 7) goes to the bankers to pay the so-called interest on the fiat dollars. We are labor slaves and military slaves used to gather all the real wealth of the world for the bankers, etc. When you think about it, all Federal Land, all Federal buildings; in fact all government land and buildings and weapons actually belong to the people because that stuff was acquired with the people's labor.

    At least I can say, that in my generation, I saw Ron Paul run for president. He didn't win the election, but at least there was a chance. He gave a lot of people things to think about.

    He was the only Vet on the panel, and the only one who was correct on almost every prediction he ever made. The most reliable, consistent, educated and a realist to the core... America is still not ready for you Mr. Paul. History will show that we needed him but didn't let reality into our lifes until it was too late...
