    Unions can have good purposes, but it seems to me that the pendulum has shifted too far in the other direction. Ron Paul is right, no one should be forced to join a union in order to have a job. And yes, there is such a thing as "robber barons." Robber barons are not capitalists, but rather quasi-capitalists who use lobbying and the power of big government to enrich themselves at the expense of the taxpayers, such as Bear Stearnes, GM, etc. Real capitalism rewards hard work and productivity, not manipulation and underhanded tactics. Real capitalism also involves risk. If you take a chance and lose all your money, it's your loss, not somebody else's. On the other hand, it's also about reward. If you succeed, the money is yours to keep, not be taken away by the communist income tax system. The Biblical principle is that hard work is rewarded and laziness is punished. Instead, we have it 180 degrees backwards in this country, we tend to punish the successful and reward the deadbeats. This is in complete contradiction to the laws of God. No wonder this country is going down the tubes.

    French Canadian,
    Don't know whether you will see this or not, but Ben Swann is looking into whether there is any real connection with LIBOR and the two shootings. I also smell a rat here and believe there's much more to this than meets the eye as there has been in all these shootings. No one talks about the drugs they were on and all the holes in what happened-second shooters that disappeared, etc. Most people are unaware of the MLK programs by the military and intelligence community and how many psychologists have been employed for this purpose. Most people would find it difficult to believe how sinister some people are. I have a friend who is a retired school superintendent and taught high school history for many years. She does not listen to the news or does she pay attention to what is going on because she feels there is nothing she can do. She feels helpless. What would you tell someone like this? Instead, she is a devout Christian who prays and tries to lead a pious life and follows the Golden Rule. She does not condemn people of other faiths. There are many I know just like her.

    I disagree. If the media had embraced Ron Paul and hadn't attempted to discredit him every chance they got, and if the RNC had embraced him, then Paul could have been the nominee. I think becoming the nominee would be the hard part. If Ron Paul went up against Obama I would bet on Paul, and there are polls that show this. People love the anti war message, people are sick of the drug war, and he is willing to actually cut the military. He would steal the young vote from Obama, and steal democrats

    I'm really confused because I keep hearing different definitions, and hopefully someone can clear this up for me. When I look at Wikipedia, it says right to work laws outlaw specific contracts, those made between unions and employers which say that all employees must join a union and pay union dues. When I see this definition, it seems to me that right to work laws are clearly not libertarian, outlawing voluntary agreements between employers and unions. Paul's definition seems different though.

    Satanic organized crime controls and makes Big Buck$ off of the unions. Satanic organized crime controls and makes Big Buck$ off of the oval office.
    Since organized crime owns and controls most of the corporations and most of the American government, the people find themselves between the frying pan and the fire.
    SEE: youtube.com/user/cafr1 ---------- to see where taxpayer money goes, to see the lie of the "national debt", to see the lie of the "fiscal cliff". The American people are being had and lied to, Big Time.

    Thank you, Ron Paul, for all of your wonderful work and efforts in awakening the American people and people throughout the world to Freedom, Truth, Justice, Common Sense and Principles of Prosperity. You have made a TREMENDOUS difference in America and throughout the entire world. You have made giant steps in uniting the world in love, truth and peace. I regard your presidential campaign as a HUGE SUCCESS! I pray that many others will follow in your huge footsteps. Best wishes on your college speaking tours. I pray that your work will be Divinely supercharged, enhanced, expanded, maximized, magnified, multiplied, intensified, amplified, doubled each and every hour, empowered, strengthened, guided, directed, protected, defended and reinforced by all the Powers of Heaven. God Bless You, Forever, Ron Paul.

    With those same so called robber barons came the greatest outpouring of charity our nation has ever seen. Colleges were created along with museums the red cross salvation army and many others. Once again it shows that when individuals are free to pursue activities that would seem to only benefit themselves they actually benefit society as a whole. It is government intervention and special interest groups that take away from some to give to others. People need to realize the real goal of economic

    There is no such thing as robber barons it silliness of 19th century. You have to work hard to produce service/products and to please customers in order to stay in business. Steve Jobs created wealth for this country. People lives have improved because of innovation. There is no such thing as robber baron crimes. You can do the same with hard work.

    We disagree on that. There no such thing as robber barons. One of your robber barons saved the whales. He made oil cheap enough for people to read at night. I believe your the 99% that don't understand economics. The constitution regulates all things. I don't believe that there is place for government to regulate. By the time the government created Osha there was less accidents happening at the workplace. A Marxist is person that believes in big government.

    Yeah, I know what libertarianism is. That's a nice way of saying deregulation and rolling us back 100 years. You know, when there wasn't any workers safety laws, no minimum wage, ect. How great the standard of living was with robber barons running the country wouldn't you agree Mr. libertarian? No government to regulate anything! As a Marxist I am very much for the people for your information.

      See: Yuri Bezminov KGB U Tube ------ to see how leftist fools put dictators into power and to see what the dictators do to their "useful idiots" once they have been put into totalitarian power. Communism, Marxism, leads to poverty, suffering, tyranny, torture and evils of every kind. Capitalism doesn't create absolute perfection because there are very many very evil people in the world who thrive on taking advantage of others. BUT, communism/socialism are huge, organized crime rip-off scams that give evil power-mongers power over the money, lives of the people.
      The only real beneficiaries of government controlled communist/socialist programs are the evil and corrupt government officials and bureaucrats who stuff their own pockets with trillion$ and dole out, relatively speaking, nickels, dimes and pennies to the so-called "beneficiaries".
      Milton Friedman, economist, said that if the poor actually received all the money that is supposedly given to them they would be rich. How do you think the crooked 1% got so rich? By using government "do-good" fraudulent programs to rip off the taxpayers.
      For further enlightenment: youtube.com/user/cafr1 ------- to see where taxpayer money goes and to see all the lies and fraud of government. If you trust government to take care of you, you are in for very serious disappointments and very rude awakenings.
      Freedom is all about taking care and responsibility for oneself. Some people do not want to do that; they have the consciousness of a slave and want to be told what to do, how to do it and when to do it. Big and controlling government turns everyone into a slave.

    Barney the Purple Dinosaur, Obama, or Joseph Stalin claimed, "Sharing is Caring". But Socialist Governments are not Robin Hood's, just the "Hood's Robbing".

    Communist Manifesto (Karl Marx-Father was a Rabbi):

    1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land
    to public purposes.

    2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.

    3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.

    If I am dumb that makes you stupid. Your a joke. Unions love big government. I believe your a troll though. Nothing backs up your claim. Profit is good. Greed is good. Profit makes new things possible. Greed helps bring more good things to the market. Your biggest free loader are big business are those who donate to democrats and republicans. I don't believe that person should chip in for any collective bargaining. If the employee wants to much then the employer can fire them.
