      Wow.

      I was under the impression (based on his voting record over the last 2 plus decades) that Ron Paul has been trying to accomplish the following:

      1. Return the Federal Government to the level of responsibility that it was granted by the Constitution, which would eliminate about 90% of what it is currently doing.

      2. Restore the personal freedoms that are guaranteed to “”We The People” by the same Constitution.

      3. Make the Government return to sound money.

      4. Stop the empire building that we are currently engaged in over 135 countries around the world.

      Ron Paul is the closest thing to a Founding Father that this Country has seen in 200 years. If you honestly believe that he intends to return this Country to slavery or is running to persecute your race or any other, I feel sorry for you.

      You only have to look at this record as a Doctor to see that your opinion is 180 degrees opposite from the man’s actual character.

      The man that is in the White House now is the one you really need to be afraid of. If he is elected for another 4 years, there will be a civil war alright, it will be because he and his liberal cronies have spent us out of existence as a Nation, confiscated our guns and declared Marshall law.

      We will all be slaves at that point, which I suppose should make you happy.

      Have a good day, comrade.

          I’m sorry, but I haven’t made the connection between Ron Paul and the Muslim world yet. Perhaps you could enlighten us with something other than a reference to him being a Freemason. Every President of The U.S. has been a Freemason with one exception. As far as I know, the Masons are not a Muslim support group.

          The Muslim world is a very real danger to all the “Infidels”, ie. not Muslims) and it is obvious that they are preparing a new generation similar to the Nazis. I think that perhaps the greater danger to us in the very near future is the impending civil war between the Sunnis and the Shia. From what I understand, they absolutely hate each other as much as they hate us. When, not if, Iran gets nuclear weapons, the religious war within the Muslim community could get very bad, very fast. The net result would be a virtual stoppage of oil exports from the middle East, which would of course, stop the civilized world in it’s tracks. They could send us into civil anarchy without firing a shot in our direction.

          The question is, what the hell do we do about it? The current situation of us bombing Muslim countries while we are simultaneously giving them billions in foreign aid is not working too well!

          So far, all you have done is make some really vague accusations about the candidate I support. Just to be fair, who do you think is capable of getting us out of this mess?

            Herman Cain, I could tolerate even though he has virtually no knowledge of international politics or monetary policies.

            Michelle Bachman? Please…. although she is on the right track as far as Constitutional issues and the role of Government, I just can’t see myself voting for a woman who hears God talking to her. I personally don’t subscribe to the fairy tale of religion, whether it’s yours, hers or the Muslims. That is still my right (I think) in this Country.

            In terms of the perpetual wars in the middle East that we will be fighting on a dozen fronts forever if folks like you have their way, what have we gained in the last 10 years? Just today I was reading a report that says Iraq is more dangerous than it was a year ago.
            I said when we invaded Iraq, the real purpose was protecting the oil. I thought then that we should take over the oil fields and build the world’s biggest military base in the middle of them. If we are going to build an Empire, we should at least have intelligence and the balls to take the spoils of war.

            More people have been killed in the name of religion through the course of history than all others combined. What most people, and obviously you fall into this category, fail to realize is that we simply cannot afford to continue building the Empire and trying to control the whole world with our military, even if the cause is justified. It killed Rome, it killed the Soviet Union, it has killed every Empire since the beginning of man. As the Empire expands, it requires more and more money to maintain it. Eventually, the Government has to debase the currency in order to pay for it.
            We spend 20% of all expenditures on the military, more than the rest of the world combined, and yet even our commanders will be the first to admit that we are spread so thin, we can’t do a proper job anywhere. Our Constitution allows for the defense of our borders, not the entire world. There will always be threats and turmoil, there always has been. The problem is, our dollar is worth less than 5% of what it was when “We The People” allowed the Government to establish the Federal Reserve so that the Government could create money out of thin air to make their buddies all over the globe rich. How much farther do you think we can go with this foolishness?

            Btw, I’m sure you won’t believe this or even entertain the notion, but 9/11 was an inside job ace. I spent many years in the demolition business and when I saw the footage of the buildings collapsing, I knew instantly that hundreds of very precise explosive charges were required to bring those buildings down like that. I didn’t even know about building 7 at that time. I really find it hard to believe that the American people are so naive that they still believe that airplanes caused the collapses, even though massive amounts of evidence now says otherwise. Building 7 was never even touched by another building or airplane and yet it collapsed straight down. Come on now, really??????? Hitler would have been proud of our leaders ability to get us to believe anything.

            Of course the Muslims celebrated our loss. The whole damn word is sick of us invading their Country, killing thousands if not millions of innocent people and proclaiming ourselves their “savior”.

            If China landed 100,000 troops in America and started killing your friends and relatives “for your own good”, how would you feel? I’ll bet you would cheer if they had an earthquake that killed millions, I know I would!

            I really don’t understand why you are posting here in the first place. If you want to bitch about Ron Paul, why don’t you go to one of the other candidates sites to do it?

            Or do you think that you are so smart and well informed that you can convert all of us ignorant “racists”?

      “Ron’s answer for making America great again is to take away the amendments to the Constitution that give birthright citizenship to those born in America …”

      I didn’t have to read much past this as its speaks volumes to the slavery of your mind. Did any “Constitution” give you a “birthright”?? Or did flesh and blood people give birth to the Constitution? The answer is as self-evident as the slavery of your mind. 3 kinds of slaves:

      1) Someone that willingly becomes or asks to be a slave.
      2) Someone forced into slavery by threat, duress and coercion.
      3) Someone that believes the lie that slavery is freedom.

      The second man or woman excepts the condition to preserve life while looking for and making opportunities to have freedom and liberty returned. Notice I write RETURNED and not given or granted. If someone takes something from you they cannot grant or give it to you as if you never owned it. The robber and thief can only return it or GIVE IT BACK.

      The third man is the most pathetic. He not only believes that living with man-made granted privileges is freedom, but forces everyone else to be the limited “free man or free woman” and likewise carry the same lock and chains or his or her so-called “freedom”.

      The first by circumstances and FREE CHOICE accepts his place but does not impose his slavery upon others.

      The problem is that Ron Paul is trying to restore or GIVE BACK what is stolen from you and me. The only difference is that I know I’ve been made a slave to so much mischief and you have no clue. Tell us how this beast of a government created by the hands of flesh and blood people grant “birthright” citizenship to the creators of government? Did you know that Yick Wo v Hopkins USSC opinion reckons a truism that you are likewise an “…AUTHOR AND SOURCE OF LAW…” today?!! Even though you were born after those that penned the original documents founding this government and Yick Wo v Hopkins and slavery was abolished you are considered as if you signed this government into exsistence.

      Now if you are an “…AUTHOR AND SOURCE OF LAW…” considered a co-creator of the law of the land and this government, how can your government refuse you citizenship if you want it or harm you if you don’t want it? This rebellious law and government can because YOU allow it to and you know no better.

      What you don’t really get is Ron Paul is actually trying get you to be the master of your government as is your natural birth right. It’s very hard though when too many think government as the master of people. Perhaps Justice Matthews didn’t mean you when he spoke of people being the author and source of law.

    Real presidential candidates like Ron Paul (ie the ones that have the interests of the people at heart) were taken out of the race early in in the 2008 race through media and politcal party control/manipulation. I fear this will happen again, and because of this, until the 2 party system/election process is overhauled, Ron Paul’s loyalty to the Republican party will once again be his downfall.

    LOL, go troll somewhere else. We know you’re from another camp. Go vote for the same people who, over 40 years, have screwed us, royally. I am glad to see that you are scared of this guy. Just proves our point about who is actually running things.
    What we currently have is a hybrid government. YOU may think this is a democracy, but, in fact, it has become a fascist (the collusion of big business and the government) socialist (where the distribution of the nation’s products and services are controlled by the government) nation. Both parties collude with big business, let’s face it, that;s how they stay in office.
    We have to rid ourselves of their selfish use of our money to buy votes and maintain power, where, little by little, they strip OUR rights so THEY can have more.
    It’s really that simple. So, take your little troll minds (Sweet and Donniebrook) elsewhere, where you can deal with the same stupidity that you insist on spouting, just like the people of Europe did to APPEASE Hitler. Go on… Shooo…..

      I agree with most of your comment, but you can still have a democratic socialist country. Socialism wouldn’t determine government hierarchy or its democracy, because socialism can be chosen by the people. But I do agree that we have turned into a republic based on socialist ideals of the left and massive military complex from the right. While either way may have taken us to prosperity of some sort, they have just become a very toxic mixture where the polarized machine can bully those who perceptively have less while the ones that perceptively have less can blame the bullies. When really neither exist and we are just blaming and bullying ourselves, because we are all of equal liberty.

      Ron Paul will bring a governmental peace that will allow us to root the toxic parts of this mix, while keeping the necessary structure to survive such a burdening task of actually looking at fallout of the last 60 years. :)

      I have so much hope for the 2012 election.

    Well, by now unless you reside under a small rock at the bottom of the ocean you are aware that our hero, Ron Paul is once again committed to waging the good, big fight for the perhaps once again constitutional office of the Presidency of the United States.

    With the record breaking home run knocked out of the park(at 75 years old,) is there any doubt that the good Lord is with him? He is the personification of the proverbial “idea who’se time has come.”

    America is finally catching on to the stature and wisdom of this great statesman. With the advent of the internet and sites like you-tube it has become clear that the things everyday Americans find critically important are coincidentally the very things Ron Paul zeros in on as a matter of his daily to-do list.

    So, the question becomes, Who can this wonder of constitutionality select as a running mate, whom is worthy of the responsibility adeemed of the person who is a heartbeat away from the leadership of this great country?

    I’m sure all of us loyal Ron Paul supporters can bandy about at least a couple of names as our suggestions.

    Unfortunately many of these have built-in, shall we say, disadvantages, in terms of baggage they will bring with their presence, and will be shot down with ease by fortune’s outrageous slings and arrows, becoming liabilities.

    I however, after careful consideration of the options being proffered by the usual suspects have happened upon my own solution to the quandry, albeit one that would require some, ahhh, adjustments perhaps as far as party affiliations may be concerned. This man is one of the most intelligent and knowlegeable former presidential candidates I have ever heard speak and is unquestionably loyal to the constitution insofar as I have been able to ascertain. I invite any interested parties to access this patriot’s blog at

    Alan Keyes is LOYAL TO LIBERTY

    I can give dozens of reasons why a Paul-Keyes ticket would be unstoppable, but perhaps one of the most cogent would be that Alan Keyes is not a carreer politician, but a statesman who would continue the policies endorsed by the electorate should he be required to fill the shoes of our “Refounder.”

    Of course, the fact that he is a Black anti-abortion, conservative constitutionalist would go a long way toward dispelling the canard that Dr. Paul is somehow biased toward any particular racial type, not to mention the fact that potential voters of all racial persuasions would be delighted to witness the advancement of any man based on the content of his character rather than the color of his skin, to paraphrase.

    Perhaps someone out there in the ether can prove to me why I am wrong about my suggestion, but until that happens I will continue to urge Dr. Paul, if he’s listening to consider drafting this man as an invaluable asset to his campaign.

    Thank you for your consideration.-Marsupial out

    @ Asterisk: Idiots like you are the reason that we have a “charismatic” president that has no experience or any idea how to run this country… or how to get us out of this hole. “Cash for Clunkers” was Obama’s great idea. Creating more debt for the people already in debt and saving the huge automakers. We need a president who cares about the people of this country! Not the large companies stuffing their campaign funds.

    I think it should be a LAW that in order to run for president, you have to have served for our country. How can you be the commander and chief if you have not put your life on the line for this great country?!

      Ron Paul is the only candidate that actually understands the issues and tells the truth about them.

      Granted, he doesn’t speak with the slick polish of Obama, but I would rather vote for a man that is more concerned with saving America than one who is determined to mold us into a clone of socialist Russia, no matter how well he speaks!

      Voting stupid is what has gotten us in this mess!

      Of course “they” are not going to give up the system that has gotten the lawmakers and all of their buddies rich. That would be indeed stupid… on their part.

      What you apparently are not capable of realizing is what is wrong with the system and what it’s going to take to fix it.

      Ron Paul has been giving the correct answers for years, but folks like you are too ignorant and too lazy to do even the most basic of research to find out what is so obvious…..

      What we have been doing is not working and it is to the point that we either change the way our Country operates, or we will fail completely.

      It’s far easier to say that change will not happen and it is hopeless to try. That is the coward’s way. If our Forefathers had the attitude that you have, we would still be subject to the Queen.

      Either get on the bandwagon to do what is necessary for our survival, or hide in the shadows and bitch like the coward that you truly are.

    For all of you who’d like to see RP as president:

    I’ve been looking for ways to convince people to vote for Ron. One way to do that is to point out the hypocrisy of both parties by pointing to the fact that they control the debate process, which they took from the Women’s League of Voters, thereby preventing any competition. Is THAT American?? I don’t think so. When BOTH parties start pulling that crap, it’s time to dump them ALL. I’d love to see Ron Paul as president with a COMPLETELY NEW congress. I get excited just thinking about it.

    Ron is NOT “one of them”.

    The Dems voted for Obama who has done NOTHING he promised [socially or otherwise]… the Reps voted for Bush and he did nothing either! I think it’s time we change the ingrediants, this formula isn’t working. Ron’s message of less government makes the RIGHT HAPPY and makes the LEFT HAPPY…

    @Will M.

    Of course Obama will be saying (only saying) whatever he thinks the “sheeple”
    want to hear. He is in full reelection mode now. Even that European style socialist is smart enough to realize that “We The People” are FINALLY waking up to the fact that we can no longer afford to be the World’s policemen. (not that we should have ever started)

    The people in power will say anything they think we want to hear to stay in power. That’s why we have to do everything we can to get Ron Paul nominated and then elected.

    Let’s try something different and put an honest man who actually understands the problems we face in the White House.

      You are right. If you watched the Republican debates, Ron was the ONLY candidate who identified the issue, gave the reason WHY it’s an issue and provided solutions. ALL the other candidates were in campaign mode with their slogans and other junk..”When I’m president I’ll do this and do that..”, your typical bs.

    There are many reasons to vote for Ron Paul. There are probably reasons to not vote for him. That goes for all candidates. I wouldn’t believe any person if they told me they agreed with everything “their” candidate supports or opposes.

    Votes are manna.
    The main reason to vote for Ron Paul is that he views the government’s role differently than do the current power sharing parties. He wants to undo all of the restricting mechanisms the parties have placed on us and business over the years. I emphasize ‘sharing’ because that is the fact. While they argue about various things, both parties have the same end goals. The end game is about VOTES. Votes means control, control means power, power means wealth and circle repeats. This is what we have in Washington, created by and upheld by the government. Not us, through fair and unbiased representation, but created and sustained by those who are supposed to represent us, as a means of getting more votes. They sell us out for money to use in their campaigns, reaching out to those who do NOT stay tuned into the deeper politics. We’ve all watched the lies they spew in each election cycle. Everything they do is about votes. Make no mistake. Votes are the foundation of their power.

    What they do, in essence, is to collude in order to maintain this system of self-preservation. Collusion is illegal, so maybe it’s a stretch, you decide. But, they created the game, and they play it, well. We have little or no control over what they do or how they do it. The major differences between the parties is simple. It’s about on what and how they’ll waste your money and use it to perpetuate their power.

    The government functions on tax revenue.
    Everything the government pays for comes from their taxing of income and other things. The list of taxable items is enormous. The more the parties argue and attempt to deprive the other side of VOTES (redistricting, etc) the more laws get passed that are restrictive. Those laws restrict all of us. A simple argument about seat belts caused the passage of Wisconsin’s seat belt law. Since there was no law requiring seat belt to be worn in Wisconsin, the Federal government required that the law be changed in Wisconsin if it wanted money to fix Federal Highways in the state. That sounds like bribery or extortion to me, but the people who wanted the rule got it. They paid for that change with money that was collected nationwide through income taxation. It wasn’t all money from Wisconsin.

    Pork
    That’s how “Pork” is used, as well. “Pork” is simply a way that the senior senators grab money to take back to their states in order to show that they’re doing their job, helping to ensure the voters re-elect them. That money also comes from taxation. The bridge to nowhere in Alaska is a good example of that. Junior senators have to wait to get the good deals.

    The first duty of government is to protect its citizens. In order to do that, they must collect taxes to pay for a military to protect their nation from invaders. The business of taking land from others has been a large part of human history since the first person stood atop a hill and declared that all the land he could see as his own and his neighbor saw the same land from his own hilltop. The further you can keep your enemies at bay, the safer you are, right? So, that’s where most of our money goes; to the growth of geopolitics. That includes our military in 150 different countries, the wars we engage in, and all of the money we give to various governments and pseudo-governments around the world. The government calls that “Foreign Aid”. In reality, that money is used by those countries to buy American made weapons, American made machines including farm equipment, and most important, to keep the Chinese and Russians away. Russia and China do the same thing.

    Enter the money problem.
    We are the world reserve currency. That allows us to print as much money as we think the world needs, in order to maintain business that requires conversion to dollars, like OIL.

    I’ve sold gold and silver for about 35 years. Gold is holding well, at the time of this writing (6-22-2011), silver took a large hit about 3 weeks ago, but it was more of a correction, and it’s been stable, since. Gold is sitting around $1540 and silver at $36. (more or less) It’s been like that for about 3 weeks. But, if the currencies fail, as expected by some, silver and gold will become the new “exchange” medium. It’s already accepted, worldwide, as a standard against all currencies.

    The problem is; if gold and silver are to become the standard of currency backing, again, you’d have to cover ALL of the money in the world. Just in the US, based on what we owe and what we hold in gold, the price per troy oz of gold would have to be around $40,000. So, that’s not happening.

    One world currency?
    The UN, the U.S., China and Russia have all agreed that a “new world” (ONE WORLD) currency could be/is needed to create a new and level playing field for all nations. Right now, if you are French and want to buy oil, you have to convert your Francs to Dollars. What they’re discussing is HOW to retool the monetary systems of the world into ONE. The EURO was the pecuniary test, and NAFTA was the trade test. Neither worked from OUR standpoint, but if you are the guys wanting to take over the world, you need to level the entire workforce value, and it that case, it has done what it was expected to do. RUIN the U.S. labor force, bringing it to its knees, creating a “competitive” market with Southeast Asia, as an example. There is no other answer, as it just does NOT make sense. When you apply common sense thinking to something and it still doesn’t make sense, something else is going on.

    Remember: BOTH of the power SHARING parties (Dems and Reps) all stood at the signing of NAFTA, smiling away, and touting this as a new era in trade with central and south America. Ross Perot warned us ALL. He was RIGHT. He was/is a true American, standing for the common sense values of what this nation was founded on, NOT what the people in power THINK it should be, to their benefit, as opposed to OUR benefit.

    Forcing you to act a certain way.
    You only need to look around you, if old enough, to see the changes in society and the underlying mentality that is prevalent in this country. All of this PC business is killing us. It’s another “leveling” of the field. The notion that forcing people to get along vis a vis government mandate or control is a good thing is anathema to human nature.

    That’s just the tip of it all. It’s much more complex, which makes it hard for the general populous to grasp. The powers aren’t worried about the few who actually see a larger scope. It’s the masses they are concerned with. Governments see their job as controlling the masses. While the right and left (here in the US) argue about what they’ll control, we lose ground. If it’s not taxing us to death, it’s losing free rights we have, so they can better control us.

    While there is no politician that I can say I agree with, or like, 100%, Ron Paul thinks that most of the laws created recently by the congress are UNCONSTITUTIONAL. He is a strict interpreter. He believes in States’ rights and the rights of all citizens to decide for themselves what is best and to make their own life decisions. If you leave the markets to themselves, they will correct themselves, but when you manipulate them, and allow the banks and geopolitics to dominate your policies, what we now have is what you get.

    Change
    Change will only come when the two power sharing parties stop controlling everything. Ron won’t run as an independent, because he thinks it’ll give Obama an edge, based on the way people vote, based more on how many lies they see on tv ads, rather than the substance of the real issues. Those on entitlements will never vote for Ron or anyone who leans right, at all. We need a large grass roots movement to get this guy elected. He’s the only viable candidate who can give us the changes that are needed to restore America to greatness.

    I have a good idea.
    Why haven’t we made it illegal to advertise alcoholic beverages?
    Young people watch the tv ads and it is not a good thing for our country.
    We prohibit advertising of ciggarettes, therefore, why not alcohol?
    The needless deaths and violence that occur due to alcohol, makes the making of a new law a very good idea.
    I would like you to do this.
    thanx

    A link from the democratic parties website. Stating 5 things you should know about Ron Paul, the vast majority of the comments on that website support ron paul. And it’s the democrats own website. Here is the link
    http://www.democrats.org/news/blog/you_should_know_five_facts_about_ron_paul

    Below is my comment on that website

    Ron Paul is definitely not your typical republican, nor is he your typical politician. There are things that he says I don’t agree with, but with that being said, he does have a lot of valid points. Reading this article on the democratic web page does not make me think extremely negative of Ron Paul. I kind of analogize him with a president from the past, the president is Theodore Roosevelt. During Theodore Roosevelt’s tenure, country was pretty much in the same shape it is now. Huge corporations and extremely wealthy people had the vast majority of the money and there was virtually no middle class. Teddy roosevelt change a lot he took on the mega corporations he was the trust buster he supported the middle class he supported the coal miners union. Teddy Roosevelt like Ron Paul is about major change . It’s a major changes that President Barack Obama had promised. Unfortunately I don’t see our president as change I see him as the same old washington two step. I won’t get into details here, I voted for barack obama vote democratic on the vast majority of occasions. I just firmly believe the democratic party has lost sight of what they are all about and that is a strong and vibrant middle class america. We need the president and the democratic party to be like a Teddy Roosevelt

    Dear Mrs. Crowley,

    On Sunday June 6, 2011, you interviewed Ron Paul and I have concerns about how the interview went and was led. I have been a lifelong democrat and a social liberal who supported democrats since I was 18 A year ago, I realized Ron Paul was right all along as we are seeing our economy implode and our civil liberties fall by the way side.

    As a member of the media, you have a responsibility to make meaningful and well thought out commentary. However, when you ask RON about his chances, you create doubt. This is irresponsible of you and other networks. Ron Paul currently is running in third place. Sarah Palin, who is going to jump in late, is intellectually dishonest and not well informed and to be quite frank, does not have the level of intelligence to run and win. Yet, why has she become a media darling?

    If someone like me a former social democrat jumps ship and becomes a republican just to vote for Ron Paul, that makes a statement. The police state is growing at an ever growing pace and TSA gropes people’s private parts, despite the fact that people who opt-out of scans due to concerns of radiation fears.

    I myself am a ground zero rescue worker and have had cancer, and was advised not to get scanned at the airport due to the potential radiation exposure. Also Columbia University did a study on those machines and has expressed concerns. Ron Paul is a fiscal libertarian and civil liberties liberal. As a matter of fact, I have donated over 50 dollars in the past two months to Ron Paul’s campaign despite the fact I can’t afford it. Is the media running scared over the fact that the American people are sick and tired of the status quo? The Federal Reserve System along with congresses tax and spend policies have brought us to the verge of economic calamity.

    It’s about time we as a people wake up and start practicing sound money principals and pulling ourselves out of foreign entanglements which are bankrupting us and forcing unparalled domestic social spending just to blunt the depression. President OBAMA is continuing the bush doctrine and has taken it, to all new level.

    Please fall in line with the American People, we are sick and tired of being told how and who to vote for,
    Sincerely,
    Philip B Kirschner
    Brooklyn, NY

      Could not agree more! Many non-Americans outside the US are following things closely.

      Curiously enough, if you google “Ron Paul 2012″, guess what appears as sponsored results on the top? A paid Mitt Romney add.

      The establishment must be scared! Not even wall-street with all the worthless paper dollars will save them this time!

      Go Ron Paul! Together we can make a difference.

      These two women are are absolute socialist. They will only do what Obama wants them to do. 250 years ago I am sure they would wear the Red Coat. Neither one supports the constitution and should be charged with treason. JMHO.

      The problem with Washington State is that the WSRP will not run anyone that can put them out of office. What does this tell you.

    Dr. Ron Paul has NEVER been introduced properly in any Chinese media.
    This time as well. Chinese TVs show various running candidates from both parties, those former governors, ambassadors and talk show hosts, but no words for Ron Paul.
    I suppose his ideas are toxic to every big brother. As G. Edward Griffin demonstrated, left and right, at the top, both are same.

    Ron Paul 2012. You have my vote as you did in 2008. I said I am not voting for the better of two, which I have done before. I was told I was stupid for voting for someone who would not make it. My vote would not count. In 2008 I voted for the one I wanted Ron Paul and in 2012 I will definitely do it again. I am so glad to read everyones comments and finding so many more people finally paying attention to the only man who should be President of the United States.

    Mr Paul. I’ve been a life long Democrat voting left party. Don’t like the Republicians because they’re social beliefs are not in line with mine, however later this year, I’ll be changing my party in order to vote for Paul/(Ventura? Kucinich?) 2012. I am tired of my Federal government pulling nearly 3 times what the state pulls and all I get for this is BAD GOVERNMENT. I’m no tea bagger, just a guy who’s tired of being excessively taxed while the corporate scum get tax breaks.

    You get my vote and my donation and in return, I want my Country back.
    Thank you.

    Main stream media makes me sick. They were talking about the potential heavy weights in the republican camp after DT and MH dropped out. I checked different channels and different news media. NOT ONCE they mentioned Ron Paul as even a candidate let alone a heavy weight candidate. They play it like he doesn’t even exist. This just shows the ugly face of corporatism that is controlling this country. I am angry and will do what it takes to show the rest of Americans that Ron Paul exists and what he stands for. I really want to believe that we can win this. You know why? Because this is the last chance for America. It makes me sick that when I talk to people they just DO NOT get it. It really is the last chance folks…it is. We either give this patient (out country) a well trained Doctor or she will flat line very soon. It really makes me sad to say this but it is true. America will be finished if we fail. They have rubbed us of everything we have from our money to our civil rights and liberty. Are we going to stand up one day and say NO to this? America… those who just blindly oppose Dr. Paul…instead of throwing meaningless rhetoric at him, please open your eyes (This one LAST time because it could be the LAST) and see what is happening to this country. Corporations don’t even care about this country. They don’t care if they ship thousands of jobs overseas to increase their bottom line. They have no apathy for those men and women that are fighting out there and in the name of fighting for America, they are just protecting the interests of this money hungry blood sucking parasites. And these corporations are the ones opposing Dr. Paul. A Dark age is ahead if we don’t act now. PLEASE WAKE UP!!!

    I agree. Lets push RON PAUL to a WIN for the nomination. Therefore, to answer Mitt Romney and his ten million dollar fundraising day, June 5, 2011 will be a RON PAUL MONEY BOMB. Lets show the mainstream media and the GOP we mean business and out fund ROMNEY. My contact information is 347-627-3490 if you live in NYS.
