    Clapper should be in the slammer. At the very least he should be fired for lying to Congress and the American people. This is totally unacceptable that he is not only out of jail but still on the payroll.

    I would love to trust someone in politics but it is just a game and has historically been about the haves and the have nots. One day people will understand God’s words and the earth shall know peace. God’s son came to teach us how to live and how to love but the devil has kept people stuck in slavery. Serving selfish desires and destroying us all – and it is what “they” will encourage you to do – to continue pleasuring yourself. They divide and conquer you with God’s law – which is an abomination to God and will one day end, but when – is up to us. We must surrender to God’s will and He will conquer evil and rule with justice and peace.

    Hello Friends, again!

    I am not going to delete my FB or Yahoooooooooo email accounts, but I am stopping opening them after this entry for an indefinite period of time. My email was being hacked through FB, and who knows what was used to get on FB in the first place. The computer was hacked, the internet service hacked, and ANY activity done on ANY computer.

    (So, you can see why I am such a fan of Snowden’s. With technology and the computers, the smart meters in your homes, vehicle gps’s, the postal system, etc., , it never ends.!) BUT, it’s one thing to talk about it, but another to live it.

    I had a systems check done, and beginning with June 23, 2013 – August 4, 2013, I had been hacked 1,830 times! (That’s interesting: 1) night of the Super Moon 2) night my little dog Zoey was hit with a car 3) day I left Sarah’s for Wellston, Ohio to interview for a job on the 24th. (Someone there was contacted; the principal did not attend the interview, sent a rep instead!) I pretended I didn’t notice; it went well. Good Superintendent.

    Anyway, I am okay. I REALLY need a job and am trying my BEST, but for 18 years, actually since 1988, I have been blocked in securing employment. I usually have managed to surf over, around, and through, and was lucky at random. But, this time, it almost seems fruitless, but I CANNOT give up, must be persistent.

    Oh, it’ll ALL work! It might take time, but I chose you 15 friends because you know me. You’ve been my support system, and remember, “All’s well that ends well!” Love you! D Frau aka Sharon

    Actually I wrote Ron Paul in. I really didn’t trust Romney to do anything about it. Yes, yes, and yes on all of this, but it didn’t surprise me at all. I got off of facebook quite some time ago, but even when I was on a different private e-mail account that they didn’t have, I would get advertisements based on some word that had been in the previous e-mail. So even the advertisers have access to our personal information, and not just what is posted on social media sites. I checked it out over a year ago, and it was very predictable.

    I don’t see that anything can be done without attacking our foreign policy. People will accept sacrifices in the name of fighting terrorism. The War on Terrorism bids to become an eternal feature of life in the US. Why not make peace with the terrorists? We did it in Vietnam (we used to call the Vietcong terrorists and say that it’s always a mistake to negotiate with terrorists.) The British did it with the IRA (Northern Irish group wanting Northern Ireland free of British control.) The French negotiated with the Algerians. Right now our policy is to prevent ‘Islamists’ from having political power anywhere around the globe. To this end we engage in a lot of disinformation and dirty pool, which refreshes their antagonism. Given the enormous amount of money we spend fighting terrorism (more than we spent fighting the Soviet Union!) it would be a huge savings to make peace and toss them some apology money. We’re in the habit of handing out free money but usually to corrupt or secularist dictators. As for the argument that the Islamists are out to behead everyone that’s a lot of nonsense. For centuries Islam treated religious minorities in its midst more gently than Christianity or atheistic Communism. Some will say it’s cowardly to be nice to the perpetrators of 9/11 but we can’t blame every Islamist for 9/11 any more than we can blame every Irish Republican for the attempt to kill Margaret Thatcher.

    We all need to be aware of the Criminals that continue to be lawless and enemies of the Constitution. When the American People are labeled Terrorist by certain people and departments, we are at WAR! We cannot continue business as usual. The government is getting more Brazen than ever! This is a Threat to our Freedoms and Liberty. When you have an overseas newspaper reporting the criminal behavior and not our media not saying anything, this is also a RED FLAG. The Mannings and Snowdens are the Heroes and we need more of them. It is time in our Country’s History to march on DC and take back what belongs to us. Those that serve the Government by breaking the Constitutional law are the criminals whom need to be arrested. NOT IMPEACHED, But DETAINED and put on Trial like Nuremburg.

    I love it, and as usual, Ron Paul is right on the mark.

    The NSA is not spying on militant Muslims, nor is it spying on Al Queda…they are spying on American citizens.

    Monitoring mosques is not allowed, but monitoring us, and everything we do online, is somehow acceptable…I don’t think so!

    Like you I am a libertarian and would have voted for you in 2012 if the voters of this great (in principal) nation were not uneducated, easily manipulated, naive and plain stupid cowards. So, I voted for Romney, who unfortunately was too wishy washy and projecting guilt out of his financial and capitalistic success.
    Having escaped Communism in the early 60′s I am horrified to see that this country is inexplicably heading towards some form of Socialism, but in a way is trapped in a Fascistic spiral. Perhaps it is not a single ‘Dictator’ but highly organized secretive corrupt finance/industrial military complex groups that rule EVERYTHING in this country. No longer do I see any respect for the US Constitution in this government. No longer do I feel that I – a CITIZEN of this country have a voice as I am outmaneuvered and outnumbered either by highly organized thugs or just because I live in a highly liberal entitlement driven State. where my voice doesn’t count. No longer do I trust ANYTHING this government is saying or doing.
    As much as I wish I was totally off base in everything I see happening, I have lost all hope. The only miracle that would reverse this destructive course if suddenly this clueless American electorate woke up and realized that the solutions are ONLY in their hands and not in the hands of old fart bureaucrats in Washington, who have lost touch with reality and forgot their mission and an oath.
    2014 will be the last point in the history of this country when it’s destruction could be reversed by voting out the militant leftist radical and wishy washy republican crowd in Washington, stopping all the destructive legislative process and bills and electing your son – Rand Paul in 2016, who hopefully would bring the size of this government down, in accordance with the Founding Fathers’ precepts and repeal all that garbage that is turning us into serves.

    The Federal Government is taking too much control from its citizens.
    I have asked how much is being spent for the NSA program and have not gotten an answer. There are contractors working for the government making a lot of money so they do not want it to go away.
    The US does not have to rule the world and should focus on our country and individual freedom.
    Osama Bin Laden wanted to destroy the USA by bankrupting it and so far we are doing a great job of spending money.

    Thank you Dr. Paul for taking up the fight for The Truth in this country. It was your campaign for President that opened my eyes to just how sadly this country has been misled by politicians and lawyers. I would pray that you continue the fight to set this country back onto the solid ground of the Gospel, The Word of God and the Constitution which was inspired by them. Steven Rauch

    The whole surveillance investment by the US & it’s allies is all about control, it’s not about anti-terrorism, clearly.
    Being able to blackmail judges, scientists, politicians, military personnel, etc. means control, but not only this – it means making people live in fear, so they won’t talk to one another, or speak openly about the wrongs that are happening. Open your eyes, people – the government isn’t being hyjacked – that’s already happened!

    Our best chance is to speak openly & share what we find. For every Bradley Manning that is put away, 100 more should speak out. Bush acted fraudulently, leading to 100′s of thousands of innocent people’s deaths including women & children in the middle East and he remains free.
    Bradley Manning spoke out about truths – and is now imprisoned for life.
    He is being made an example. What will we choose? Silence & fear, or to say “No more lies” and stand up for freedom?

    It’s not just what’s happening now, it’s what our children, their children and their children’s grandchildren will experience if we don’t protect the future now.
    Ron Paul is the only politician with honesty & integrity, but we cannot only rely on him. We must all share the truth & if necessary be willing to fight for freedom.

    This is so sickening. I wish more Americans would be more willingly to see what our government is doing to us. The government has far too much power. I would love to see Obama impeached.

    Thank you, Ron Paul for keeping us Americans in the loop of the wrongful, unlawful acts the government is doing without us knowing. I am a beleiver & follower of you Ron Paul. I appreciate everything you do.

    Ron Paul is a god sent man; the trouble is I am no longer sure that our nation at the individual level is godly. We should be taking to the streets in the millions and should have started mass protest when they did not allow our Christian founded nation to have prayers in school. We may not be concerned about the loss of our civil liberties, but we should have stood up for God.

    Ron Paul has always been a voice from freedom, sanity, and an adherent to the Constitution of the USA. Unfortunately, the educational system has purposely been dumbed down to the point we have a largely ignorant population that knows little or nothing of what this great country is/was all about. This must be reversed if not already too late to do so. The country now faces collapse on many fronts—all of them very serious. Only by unwrapping the clanger can the Voice for Freedom ring loud and clear. To quote Donald Trump, “This is the biggest con ever perpetrated in American political history” and so right he is. The Fabian socialists (wolves in sheep’s garb—their symbol) are currently in control. Ron Paul should be President—not an imposter socialist muslim.

    Propaganda, the coordinated attempt of lies to influence public opinion through the use of media,[clarification needed][dubious – discuss] was skillfully used by the NSDAP in the years leading up to and during Adolf Hitler’s leadership of Germany (1933–1945). National Socialist propaganda provided a crucial instrument for acquiring and maintaining power, and for the implementation of their policies, including the pursuit of total war and the extermination of millions of people in the Holocaust. Your American Leaders (beginning in your Whitehouse) are following the NSDAP tooth and nail.

    I have recently converted to a more libertarian view of my political thoughts, as with other members of my family. The party is gaining strength.
    I am so appreciative of Ron Paul. My top concerne is how do we not split the parties? Libertarian, Republican, Tea Party. I always remember the Bush, Perot election. I believe one way is to have a brave republican representative split from the party, carry centered Republicans, centered Democrates, Libertarian and Tea Party affiliates. I believe this should be our biggest concerne, we can not make a change in direction of our country if we can not change the man at the top, we will just remain a voice that is not really heard.

      We have to spread the message far and wide, to EVERYONE YOU KNOW! We had a REPUBLICAN running in the last election, remember, RON PAUL but his movement was STIFLED by the corruption in the media AND THE CORRUPTION IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY! Most people do not know how close we were to having Ron Paul be the republican nominee but we were CHEATED OUT OF IT! We cannot let this happen again. We do not have any more time, this country and its constitution depend on us! Google “how the media cheated the Ron Paul movement”. Very interesting video and VERY VERY SAD!

    It seem to me that you have insiders that don’t want you to win. There is no link on your email to me to get here.

    Once here, Johnson’s “lockbox” for the money he stole out of our SS and were given an IOU that was put into his lockbox for safe keeping. Now the word is being watered down. Johnson moved SS from it’s own privet trust fund into the gov’t general fund and they have been taking money from it ever since. No, I wont forget the real “lockbox’.

    Ron Paul has this gov’t figured out, they wont follow the Constitution, they start wars without congressional consent to kill off our fighting men, they wont protect our borders, they have us 17.2 trillion dollars in debt and still print fiat money to buy more programs that we don’t want. They give foreign aid to our enemies to take us farther into debt. They want us bankrupt so we will be pushovers for a world bank, they want us to give our sovereignty to the UN who wants a world government.

    They think that by keeping Ron Paul from being elected with their criminal acts in Tampa that they have won, but they haven’t. Not by al long shot. This is a big country and the largest group ever gathered here is the Tea Party. The gov’t can’t put us down just by controlling the media, can’t intimidate us with their spying drones. We are the Tea Party in our hearts, we follow the Constitution and they will too. Remove the socialist/progressives one at a time, if Obama isn’t impeached each of his actions will be nullified.

    We want paper-trail voting and chem-trail violations prosecuted.

    Strip them of their ill gotten wealth, and the Tares would instantly become good for nothing, it is through their wealth, cunning, charm, and by their ability to buy others to do their dirty work that the Tares are able to deceive, manipulate, and implement their wicked agendas such as the planning and execution of domestic and foreign Terror attacks, never ending wars, and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act or Obamacare, designed to include euthanasia or assisted suicide. The Zionists own and control the Filthy Whores of the U.S Congress, Private and Public Business Organizations, Organized Religion, Academia, and the Mainstream Mass Media. In other words, the Tares dominate the core of society with the pretense of preserving Peace, Freedom, Safety, Security, and the Environment, and now through Agenda 21 they are planning to Micromanage the lives of every man, woman and child on the face of the earth. http://taresweedsunitednationsagenda21islam.blogspot.com/

    I remember when you acknowledged your awareness of a conspiracy to create a one-world dictatorship. Speaking in the House of Representatives 29 April 2003, you stated, as reported on your thelibertycommittee.org web page: “…Perhaps it’s time to stop trying to manipulate the UN, and start asserting our national sovereignty. If we do not, rest assured that the UN will continue to interfere not only in our nation’s foreign policy matters, but in our domestic policies as well. UN globalists are not satisfied by meddling only in international disputes. They increasingly want to influence our domestic environmental, trade, labor, tax, and gun laws. UN global planners fully intend to expand the organization into a true world government, complete with taxes, courts, and possibly a standing army. This is not an alarmist statement; these goals are readily promoted on the UN’s own website. UN planners do not care about national sovereignty; in fact they are openly opposed to it. They correctly view it as an obstacle to their plans. They simply aren’t interested in our Constitution and republican form of government.”

    And then at an event near Austin, Texas on August 30th, 2003, you were asked: “…If we can take a look at the big picture, could you tell us, the people in this room, any information that you may have of an international and deceptive conspiracy to overthrow the American Republic and its Constitution & Bill Of Rights in order to set up and usher in a totalitarian World Government likely espoused under the UN also..”? You responded: ” He asked if there was an international conspiracy to overthrow our government. The answer is “Yes”. I think there are 25,000 individuals that have used offices of powers, and they are in our Universities and they are in our Congresses, and they believe in One World Government. And if you believe in One World Government, then you are talking about undermining National Sovereignty and you are talking about setting up something that you could well call a Dictatorship – and those plans are there!…”

    Remember the novel “1984″?
    1. In order for the State to retain control it needs an enemy
    2. Everyone is a potential enemy

    I worked in Iran during the reign and collapse of the Shah. (1974-1979). My stay there made me appreciate the freedoms of my country more and more with each passing day.

    Unfortunately, over the past 12 years I see the differences between Iran then and present-day America narrowing evermore as each day goes by. It is so sad. Power based on the generation of fear, (real and imagined) has become the foundation of our society. Where will it end?

    The Founding Fathers and the American society faced a real enemy based in overwhelming numbers on our soil. Yet they valued freedom over fear and they persevered. Can we not do the same?
