BREAKING: SC TEA Party Leader Endorses Ron Paul

Sunday, January 15, 2012

S.C. Sen. Tom Davis – the leading fiscal conservative in South Carolina state government and one of the most coveted endorsements of the 2012 “First in the South” presidential primary – will announce his support for U.S. Rep. Ron Paul on Sunday.

Davis will endorse Paul’s candidacy at a campaign event Sunday evening in Myrtle Beach, S.C. – confirming a report published earlier this week on Buzzfeed.

Paul’s campaign has described Davis’ forthcoming endorsement as “consequential” and “game-changing.” Why? Click here.

A first-term State Senator, Davis wields a disproportionate impact given his stellar fiscal voting record and his advocacy on behalf of key state-level reforms including a taxpayer rebate fundand an aggressive government restructuring bill (unlike the “restructuring in name only” pushed last year by Gov. Nikki Haley).

Davis has also pushed for individual income tax relief as opposed to taxpayer-funded incentives on the job creation front – arguing that the latter only shift the state’s tax burden onto small businesses.

    What fools we have in the government. Backing the weekest link we have agaisnt Obama. Obama will rip him a new AH the first day he debates him and Ron will look like a fool. Maybe that’s the name of a new series, Fool’s Gone Wild

    • http://facebook Ruby Franks

      Anyboby can beat Obuma

    • Rosemary

      Maybe in your mind but that is absolutely not true.

    • judybd

      Ruby Franks is ‘spot-on’ in her assessment of any body can beat Obama! I personally don’t care if a ‘pet rock’ gets the nomination…I vote for anything or anybody that runs against the existing corrupt president/administration!

    • Lynn Overton

      I will crawl to my voting location to vote against Oblabla, but I won’t vote at all if Ron Paul is the nominee. That is trading one moron for another. Ron Paul is frightening. He won’t get the nomination, so that argument is mute anyway. I can’t believe that Obama’s approval ratings are double digets. That blows my mind!

    • JoJo

      That has to be one of the most asinine, irresponsible comments I’ve read in quite a while. Boo hoo hoo. My candidate didn’t get the nomination, so I will give Obama TWO votes (yours and the moron voting for Obama) so we can finish the trashing of this country. I’m still undecided, but I know that much of what Ron Paul says makes sense. If you think that once Paul is elected that drugs will be legal and that the military will collapse is crazy. Are you forgetting about CONGRESS? You know, that branch of the government that King Obama likes to circumvent to suit his needs? Right now the nuts in charge are stopping and searching AMERICAN citizens on the freeway (VIPR) and Hillary is busy signing away our soverignty to the UN and world court under Agenda 21. Amazing to me how some people will act like babies when this is the most important election in our lives. Maybe you don’t deserve to vote.

    • Lisa

      Bravo! I agree. No one says anything about Hillary’s role in giving our rights away. Ron Paul makes more sense than all of Capital Hill combined.

    • chrisinsmyrna

      While I’m sure that Ron Paul _would_ work with congress and end up not rocking the boat WRT foreign policy and drugs, I am of the opinion that there is no way that he can beat Obama. If Paul is nominated, the GOP has shot itself in the foot yet again. Folks, don’t forget that our main mission as conservatives and patriots is to GET OBAMA OUT of the oval office. Only secondary is putting a true conservative in. If, in trying to put a true conservative in office we end up losing the election we can kiss the country that we love goodbye.

    • Jerry F.

      It’s getting to the point that we will have to get behind Romney just to get rid of R.P.And you’re right this country will be a goner with R.P.

    • pikemaster

      Not a chance, Mitt is another Obutthead anti-gunner. King mitt will do the same as barry and the ape .RULE America .Mitt should of changed his name to Ted Kennedy Jr. since thats his idol.

    • jim

      You had better WISE UP lynn!! We MUST support the GOP candidate, whoever that is, will be LIGHT YEARS better than that Socialist Idiot barry!!

    • lilbear68

      so i guess you would not vote for the constitution if it came up for a vote also
      because ron paul stands directly for the govt being run according to the constitution

    • Angela

      Yeah thats the same crap all of us thought about the OBlumber being the president all rational thought told us that he would not win and dumb people like you voted him in so smart people like us are voting for real change like Paul get over it and stay home if you want to I dont care!

    • Bert

      Dont be too sure about that. The crowd that got him elected have been working hard on building up heir organization. They are not going to give up without a damn good fight. Too much money involved.

    • Casper777

      Sorry to say this, but don’t under estimate the number of American fools who will vote for Obama. I agree with much what Ron Paul says, but I don’t think he is Presidential material, but would be better that Obama, I must add. Ron Paul would do better to continue representing Texas or take a post in the new Administration in 2013.
      Anyone who votes for a Democrat (or RINO) at any level of Government – Federal, State or local, may be an idiot.

    • Edna

      Not True!!!!!! Obama can buy this election just like the last..I am a member of the Tea Party but am second thinking because the Tea Party cannot stick together and they will lose. Why would the SC Tea Party endorse Ron Paul???? He does not stand for a thing the Tea Party stands for….Romney is no better than Obama with all his baggage….Lord help our Country wake up.

    • http://Patriot Gail

      I agree 100% Ron Paul is a dangerous person. I am thinking that the tea party has left conservatives and gone just like the democrats liberal. Why is Ron Paul on the republican ticket? He is a Libertarian not a Republican.He is closer to the Democrats than Republicans.I will definately not vote for Ron Paul just another Obama.

    • JoJo

      LOL no he’s not. Liberals want to regulate every aspect of our lives, libertarians are the opposite. I’m beginning to think that the people posting that THINK they’re conservative/TEA party are more moderate than they realize.

    • alex

      so is romney but you keep pushing him

    • Carol Degler

      I agree with you Gail,Ron Paul is a dangerous person. I don’t know what to think about the tea party,just because Ron Paul is conservatives doesn’t mean that all his thinking isn’t too radical. Why is Ron Paul on the republican ticket? Good question.He is closer to the Democrats than Republicans.I believe that statement too, and like you I hope that Ron Paul isn’t the canidate for the republican party. Then we will have to vote for the best of two evils. Remember Obama promised you everything and gave us nothing but heart aches. Just because a person can spout back what they know you want to hear doesn’t make them the best canidate.

    • Drop Dead Fred

      I think that anyone out there who is unwilling to support any portion of our constitution much less a candidate who supports it fully is a dangerous person.

    • yoely

      Gail You really are off base.Ron Paul is the most truly conservative of the bunch. The others are sometimes glitsy, sometimes caustic, sometimes scary, but mostly dangerous to liberty. Republicans have been co-opted by the establishment. It is they who are just like the democrat establishment not Ron Paul. On the contrary…………

    • Casper777

      Ron Paul has the belief that America would fair better if it spent more time and money ‘minding its own business and looking after America’s needs’ rather that selectively interfering and starting ‘non-wars’ in other countries. I can’t fault him for this position. Can anyone tell me how Vietnam, Iraq and Libya threatened America? Keep in mind that most of the 9-11 hijackers and funding came out of Saudia Arabia, and Saddam Hussein was our buddy during the Iran-Iraq war.

    • joe

      oh come on man. paul is THE ONLY one that actually agrees 100% with the tea party. the tea party is a movement for smaller government, which he is the only canidate on stage that actually voted for that when it was not the popular thing to do. he is conservative in just about every sense of the word and the only canidate that the founding fathers wouldnt slap. his foriegn policy isnt one of weakening it is one of strength. why should we involve ourselves in foriegn countries so much. i agree the terrorists are looking for reasons to attack, but it isnt helping we think we should but our way in to every other countries politics. paul is the only one we can count on to dow what he says. romney is a RHINO as is santorom and i can only hope genrich actually did have a change of heart.

    • Hank is back

      Actually, Ron paul held the FIRST Tea Party back in 2007.

      Actually, Ron Paul donated a portion of his $5 Million in left-over 2008 campaign cash to some of the Anti-Tax groups that sparked the more well-known Tea Parties in 2009.

      Every Tea Party that i have come across in Montana is hauling for Paul.

      We know that all Tea Parties are different and independent, but for you to say that Ron Paul is basically the opposite of the Tea party is total BS.

    • EL ZORRO

      You are the one that has to wake up,stop watching the sate controlled media and read and listen what Ron PAUL say and not what the dessinformation CFR pay media pundit want you to hear.

    • Carol Degler

      I have listened to Ron Paul speak Zorro.

    • Peggy Sparks

      To all the Ron Paul supporters a thumbs up!
      To all of you out there that think Mitt, Newt, Rick, Rick, and Jon would give us our freedoms back not a chance! If any of those 5 get elected you will be sending some one in your some where where they will be maimed or killed have you people not have had enough deaths and maimed bodies of our U.S. troops men and women alike.Seeing them in caskets or going home with no arms or legs is that not enough war for you!!!!!!!!!

    • JERRYMATT

      EDNA ARE YOU A FRICKEN MORON, RON PAUl IS THE ONLY CANDIDATE WHO STANDS FOR LIMITED GOVERNMENT, FISCAL MONITARY POLICY AND FREE CAPITAL MARKET! what the Tea party stands for!
      iI think this site attracks Leftwinged MORONS trying the apple cart.

    • peachdog

      I also consider myself a Tea Partier and am a registered republican. However, I am now asking myself what it is that the Tea Party and Republicans stand for if they will NOT endorse Ron Paul. I always thought we stood for liberty, limited government, and protecting our U.S. Constitutional rights and founding principles.

      My TWO REPUBLICAN senators are co-sponsors of the PIPA bill that is supposed to come up for a vote this month. (S.968/H.3261) I thought they were suppose to PROTECT our rights! Is it ok to shut down websites without due process? Do Republicans think that’s ok now? I digress.

      If the Tea Party and Republicans no longer stand for our founding principles, I guess I am no longer part of either one. I keep hearing that we need to vote for “the guy who can beat Obama.” I held my nose voting for McCain and I will NOT do it again. I will not vote for a big government candidate just because he has an (R) behind his name.

    • yoely

      Edna

      It is because of Ron Paul there is a Tea Party. It was begun by his supporters during the 2008 campaign. It was later highjacked by other forces who evidently have obfuscated the Tea Party message and taken in possibly you and others in order to confuse the issue.

    • randellmd

      NOT Barak Paul.

    • Ed

      Yeah anybody but Ron Paul. He scare people to death.

    • amagi

      He only scares those who do not understand
      the Constitution, economics or the philo-
      sophical base of our country, and who have
      not read or understood Dr. Paul’s books
      which are very clear and readable and shows
      his courage to stand on principles which the
      rest of Congress have severe difficulties
      with. For them it’s Power over Country.

    • yoely

      Ed

      You mean he SCARES people to death. Maybe it’s a grammar thing? Don’t be afraid. Just try to improve your English!!!!

      Then maybe it was just a Typo.

    • James

      Never make the sad mistake of under estimating the enemy. With all the crooked Obama voting machine out in force and withSoros paying for whatever crookedness needs to be done, Obama will be extremely hard to beat. Ron Paul is the only one who can pull the votes of the republicans and enough other groups to beat Obama.

    • Mark in LA

      What is it with you guys and “debates”. I realize you want the Lizardman so bad it hurts and you have convinced yourself that “he will out dabate Obama” and that will mean something. However, it will not. Unless you can steal voters from Obama any RNC shill is toast. Only paul can get some of Obama’s base.

    • PAT

      THIS IS NOT A GOOD THING. PAUL HAS SOME EXTREMELY LIBERAL IDEAS LIKE CUTTING THE MILITARY AND LEAVING OUR FRIENDS (THE REAL FRIENDS) OUR THERE BLOWING IN THE WIND. HE ALSO SAYS THINGS THAT SCARE THE HECK OUT OF ME, SO I DON’T SEE THIS AS A GOOD THING. I DON’T SEE ROMNEY AS A GOOD THING EITHER THOUGH, SO ONE MIGHT SAY, I HAVEN’T REALLY MADE UP MY MIND AS YET. I WILL SAY ONE THING, WHEN THE DUST SETTLES, I WILL SUPPORT WHOEVER WINS THE REPUBLICAN PRIMARY (UNFORTUNATELY, PAUL SUPPORTERS, FROM WHAT I AM HEARING WON’T SUPPORT THE WINNER…………).

    • Hank is back

      What kind of person thinks that saving money, allowing the free market to dictate military contracts, cutting back on waste, giving our allies back their sovereignty and independence are liberal things, and upholding the Constitution?

      Only a Romney supporter cut utter such drivel and expect to get away with it.

    • ctc01

      I do not support Romney but I agree. Ron Paul has followers who to be are in a group by themself. I believe Ron Paul is not electable but if he does get the nomination, I will vote for him to get rid of Obama.

    • whodoyoutrustnow@yahoo.com

      I find it quite interesting that most of the ‘hidden’ comments are not pro Paulbots….pretty sure this one will be hidden also. Paul supporters are being made up of dems who are trying their hardest to get this man elected. He is a laughing stock.

    • Ann Wilson Kingsley

      Regarding Ron Paul’s Foreign Policy:
      The Israeli Mossad says Iran does not pose a threat to Israel.
      http://in.news.yahoo.com/iran-no-threat-israel-mossad-chief-205136026.html
      A former head of the Mossad warned that Iran should not be attacked because it will set off a regional religious war.
      http://www.haaretz.com/news/diplomacy-defense/former-mossad-chief-israeli-strike-on-iran-will-lead-to-regional-war-1.398537
      Lt. Colonel Shaffer says Ron Paul’s Iran Policy Most Accurate
      http://by170w.bay170.mail.live.com/#n=1259539391&fid=1&fav=1&mid=33ec855b-373d-11e1-a74e-00215ad80c26&fv=
      Israel has 100s of different kinds of nukes. Ron Paul is trying to keep American tax payers from having to spend more money on wars when we are not being attacked.
      Ron Paul is for a strong military:
      Ron Paul receives more political donations from military personnel than all other candidates combined. “The libertarian congressman boasts more donations from military members than any other 2012 presidential candidate. The claim was determined “true” by Politifact, after the fact-checking group looked at Federal Election Commission filings.” Santorum has a grand total of $750 from all branches of the military combined! $750!!! Gingrich has an “impressive” $4,900! Romney has a whopping $13,300! Ron Paul has $95,567! I wonder who’s foreign policy the military agrees with! We actually know what’s going on over seas, and many of us support Paul! If you want to stop the endless nation building wars, support who the troops support!
      Read more: http://dailycaller.com/2012/01/05/santorum-compares-holding-elective-office-to-military-service/#ixzz1ikf5SrQK
      The military supports Ron Paul because he wants to end obsolete bases and military hardware, and he is for advanced technological weaponry research. Ethical American soldiers do not want to fight wars against countries that have not attacked the United States. Ethical people do not attack others without extreme provocation.

      Vote for Ron Paul!

    • hearmetalking

      Pat I have heard the same thing from Paul.I don’t know about Romney.It would be very hard to vote for this dude.

    • Betty Boo

      Whats wjth this site so many comments not shown and I really saw nothing to warrant this black out

    • JoJo

      I would like to know who all of these real friends are. All they want is the $$, they don’t give a rat’s backside about us unless they need their fat pulled out of the fire, like getting rid of the Nazis, or protecting their currency. During Katrina France sent some defective tents…We don’t need to be in Germany, Italy, UK, Japan etc. Just a few KEY places. Where our military really needs to be is on the Mexican border.

    • JERRYMATT

      HEY PAT, DO US A FAVOR VOTE FOR OBAMA AND STAY THE HELL OFF THE SITE YOU MORON!!!!!!

    • http://yahoo littledee

      Go join the democrats, that is their policy, at least it used to be. Since when has the republican party become so much for wars? We used to be the party of peace.

    • PAT

      AND I DO LIKE NEWT GINGRICH BECAUSE HE HAS BEEN THERE AND DONE IT BEFORE AND WORKED ACROSS THE ISLE AND BEEN SUCCESSFUL AT TURNING THINGS AROUND. NOT ONE OTHER PERSON CAN SAY THAT!

    • stevor

      Newt (and Romney) are part of the status quo and would be no different from O’Bummer. Perry wants to go back to Iraq. Santorum wants to bomb Iran and start WWIII.
      Paul is the only one talking about getting rid of the Federal Reserve (which makes “money” from smoke and charges interest on it and also of getting rid of NDAA, which allows the government to throw anybody in prison for no reason indefinitely with no trial)

    • Rick Johnson

      Ron Paul is totally delusional. He has no concept of reality when it comes to the US economy and foreign policy. Sad that so many people are so upset with Obama that they are willing to latch on to anything to replace him. Ron Paul’s policies will do as much harm to our economy as Obama. Paul’s proposed policies belong in the 18th century. If people were not so turned off by what Obama has done, they could see Ron Paul as the total nutcase that he really is.

    • whodoyoutrustnow@yahoo.com

      Unfortunately, you are all so disgustingly rude, just like the lefties, no side by your side is to be heard. How sad.

    • Bert

      Last I heard, the Federal Reserve is not a government organization,

    • Rick Johnson

      Anyone who suggest getting rid of the Federal Reserve has absolutely no concept of our economy or how the Federal Reserve functions. Just the suggestion of getting rid of the Fed should be enough to place someone in the realm of lunatic fringe. Before the Federal Reserve we had close to 30,000 different currencies in the US. ANYONE including drug stores could issue currency. You go to the bank and ask for your money and they do not have your money. No standard US currency, no guarantee of payment if you accept currency. Bank failures left and right.

    • Rick Johnson

      You heard wrong Bert. The Fed is run by a Board of governors appointed by the President and confirmed by the congress on rotating 14 year terms. The Authority to create the Fed is written into the constitution.

    • Carol Degler

      stevor I hope you wake up before its too late. You are living in green land.

    • Hank is back

      OKAY. My apologies for mischaracterizing you before. Not only a Romney supporter. A Gingrich supporter is also capable of uttering such drivel and getting away with it.

    • Rosco1776

      Shouting it doesn’t make it true.

      The House voted overwhelmingly to reprimand House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) and order him to pay an unprecedented $300,000 penalty, the first time in the House’s 208-year history it has disciplined a speaker for ethical wrongdoing.

      He’s just another political hack.

      Get real, vote Ron Paul 2012 !!

    • Grumpy old man

      Ron Paul is granted the most conservative man in the group. He also has not changed his platform in 25 years. If everyone thinks that radical change is not warranted based on the current direction this country is going then they have their head in the sand. We need to return to small government return power to the states and start using the constitution as it was meant to be used. Here is the Ron Paul that most people are not willing to find out about.

      He has never taken a government junket.
      He does not participate in the lucrative Congressional Pension Program.
      He returns a portion of his annual Congressional Office Budget every year.
      He has never voted to raise taxes.
      He has never voted for an unbalanced budget.
      He voted no to the bankster bailout.
      He voted no to raising the debt ceiling and warned us against The “Super Congress” part of the legislation that resembles both An “ Enabling Act” and a “Politburo.”
      He has never voted to restrict gun ownership.
      He has never voted to raise Congressional Pay.
      To stand with the American people, President Paul will take a yearly salary of $39,336, equal to the average US worker’s salary. Instead of the current President’s $400,000 salary.
      He will cut One Trillion Dollars from the budget in the first year and balance the budget in three years.
      http://www.ronpaul2012.com/the-issues/Ron-Paul-plan-to-restore-America/
      He will Return Power to the States as set down in the 9th and 10th Amendments (Bill of Rights) to the Constitution.
      He never voted to increase Executive Branch Power.
      He will Reinstate The Constitution and Save The Republic
      He will END the unconstitutional FED.
      He will phase out the unconstitutional IRS beginning immediately
      He will secure the borders
      He will limit Big Government in your private affairs
      He will stop Illegal immigration and no amnesty
      He voted against regulating the Internet

    • Betty Boo

      Yes yes yes and he will kiss ass our enemy. His foreign policy would destroy the USA

    • Detector

      “Ron Paul is granted the most conservative man in the group”
      Ok…so Dr. Paul has been in Congress for nearly 30yrs…can you please tell me what he has accomplished in all of his time on the public dole? Can you name more than one or two pieces of legislature he has authored in all of this time? Any thing of significance? Nope…zilch, nada. I do admire Paul’s adherence to the Constitution, and wish it were more pronounced in other candidates…however, we will not be voting on the “perfect” candidate. I like and agree with about 90% of Paul’s stances, however, his isolationist foreign policy is naive and untenable.

    • Rick Johnson

      People Ron Paul is NOT A CONSERVATIVE he is a libertarian. He has absolutely no concept of our economy or foreign policy. Please quit calling him a conservative for he is NOT A CONSERVATIVE.

    • http://none Kenneth D. Sabic

      Ron Paul is for the legalization of illicit drugs and prostitution. Ronn Paul is a “freak” libertarians are “freaks” Ron Paul WILL NOT GET THE REPUBLICAN NOMINATION! All of the morons who defend him are”FREAKS.”

    • Kitty

      To Grumpy Old Man: Excellent post, Sir, unfortunately it is wasted on these uninformed main-stream media watchers. From the grammatical and spelling errors in their posts, I fear they and many others like them, will fall for anything. All the candidates are saying basically the same thing with the exception of Ron Paul. The Military Industrial Complex has them all fooled into believing that we MUST be at war in the M.E. The reason is we have to “use” the weapons of war in order for them to make billions of dollars again, making more weapons. It’s all about the money. Sadly, our country is gone. Both political parties are alike, there’s not much difference. NEW WORLD ORDER,ONE-WORLD GOVT. HERE WE COME!

    • alex

      the biggest problem with our govt. is all those RINOs working the other side of the isle and not enough on our side

    • History Buff

      Pat – Newt is the most historically knowledgeable of the bunch. But look at his voting record. It isn’t that conservative. He has indeed voted for some terrible things. I suggest you take another look and do a little research, before you just take Newt at his word. He would be miles better than the present socialist and chief.

    • just sayin

      Make him, Ron Paul, Secretary of the Treasury and keep him out of our foreign affairs and I would be happy!

    • Rip

      Not without a teleprompter he won’t

    • Patrick

      Obama can’t debate unless he uses a teleprompter. I predict Obama will not debate the republican challenger.

    • KM

      @Patrick,
      I think that you ar correct that the reader-in-chief will do everything that he can to get out of debating the Republican candidate.
      This South Carolina Tea Party freshman state legislator support of Dr. Paul was a bit of a surprise. I wonder if it will have as much importance as the author of the article seems to think.
      I have a feeling that this election year is going to get very nasty

    • Bert

      Nasty is as Nasty does.

    • allen

      I can’t beleive there are so many people out there who don’t love this country and the constitution. Ron Paul is the ONLY candidate talking about the constitution which is the supreme law of the land. For an elected politician to disregard the constitution is an act of treason punishable by death. I did not write the law, our founding fathers did. they were very brilliant men.

    • JoJo

      Why does everyone keep saying that Obama is SMART? The only thing this man is good at is READING a teleprompter. ANYONE could beat Obama.

    • Cyn

      Anybody but McCain.

    • Not PC

      JOJO
      Do you people really realize what you’re saying? You seem to think it’s the gimicks these snakes have that gives politicians the edge! The stupidity the American public and the string pullers is the edge! You put tooooo much faith in the public and the vote! HUMMMMMM!

    • Mark in LA

      Look Jojo, I bet Obama is a whole lot smarter than you are and than most of the posters here. He is not a genius, far from it. However, to get through Harvard Law School – even as an affirmative action admit, his IQ is probably about 130. This puts him in probably the top 10% of the country well above Ronald Reagan.

      I don’t support him just get sick of seeing the baseless nonsense that goes on these sites.

      Ron Paul is the only one who can beat Obama because Obama will have to tell us why the Constitution is old fashioned. He will have no answers for Paul’s if the media gives him an honest shake.

    • Neb Selim

      AMEN!!!

    • Her Capitan Fick

      I used to like Ron Paul till I saw his illegal immigration grade and it’s an F> I sure don’t like that!

    • Ann Wilson Kingsley

      Actually, there is such an ideological difference between Obama and Ron Paul that Ron Paul will have less problems with Obama than any other candidate. Ron Paul will also steal Democrat away from Obama with his foreign policy. Ron Paul will take all of those Bush Hating PeaceNiks away from Obama, and there are lot of them. He is the only cross over candidate in the race. And, it is wonderful to see a shift back to the clean philosophy of our Founding Fathers – Libertarianism.

      Ronald Reagan stated the philosophy of our Founding Fathers was Libertarianism. Vote for Ron Paul for president!

I will try to convey part of it if you will keep an open mind and not root for you favorite neocon like it was a football game and you’re rooting for the home team or to the school you are attending. Dr paul is shaping his foreign policy based on the fact that the US is near bankruptcy. We have no money and all the other candidates are not willing to make actual budget cuts,they are only interested in cutting the increases in entitlements, but this does nothing to cut the national debt. The only way the US will remain a power in the world is to bring the budget under control which is something that all conservatives strive for. His solutions to this problem is to cut the military and stop fighting everyone else’s wars, bring home the troops and protect our borders to help Americans get the jobs that the illegals are stealing from us. Iran poses no threat at this time to the US. They cannot deliver a nuke to our shores even if they had one. They are a third rate power and we need not fear them. If somehow they attacked us, our navy for example, this would be an act of war and at that time he would declare war on their nation at which time he would move to totally destroy that country instead of sending ground troops fighting against an unknown enemy. The exact type of war we have been waging since Vietnam. If this type of policy is nuts I’d like your comments to tell me why you think it is.

    • SONshineman

      So let’s see, based on your “fool gone wild” comment, “nvrpc” obviously stands for: “NOT VERY RATIONAL PLUS CRACKED”! You are so out of touch with reality. Ron Paul is the ONLY candidate that can defeat Obama-nation. That is borne out in scientific polls. Every one that’s been taken shows him defeating our Teleprompter-reading CIA-Sock-Puppet undocumented-worker “President” no problem! And the reason is clear: Ron Paul is a modern day Thomas Jefferson, and enough people are awake to recognize this. It’s moron “sheeple” like YOU that are the reason America is fast descending into tyranny and a police-state on the scale of 1930′s Nazi Germany. You fools who want to sign on-board with the Bush-Cheney fake “war on terror” that Obama is merely carrying further have signed YOUR OWN DEATH WARRANT! Because the whole FEMA-Homeland-Security-Patriot-Act scenario in response to false-flag “terror attacks” like Oklahoma City and 9-11 is nothing more than a modern version of Hitler’s Reich stag bombing and his “Enabling Act” whereby he was able to become the DICTATOR WITH TOTAL POLICE STATE POWERS and the ability to enslave and torture his own people (not just the Jews). Why do you think we now have the TSA molesting people and the passage of the NDAA that authorizes OUR MILITARY to secretly arrest, torture, and place in the FEMA concentration camps that the “powers that be” have set up ANYONE they deem to be “dangerous”??? Guess what, moron, that’s YOU AND ME! It has nothing to do with “terrorism”. This has ALWAYS been about AMERICAN CITIZENS! In particular, those who stand for the US Constitution and therefore will support valiant men like RON PAUL! He is 100% right-on in the thing he is so harshly criticized about: HIS FOREIGN POLICY! If he is really so “weak and unrealistic” with that, then I ask, WHY does he get more financial support from those in the military than ALL the candidates COMBINED (including Obama)? Think about that! You think we’re in Iraq (and we’re STILL there via all of the Private Contractors hired by our government to police them) and Afghanistan and Libya and Pakistan and Egypt and Tunisia and now Syria and Iran because of some “Muslim terrorist” threat? Have you not seen how we are SUPPORTING the “terrorist” Al-Qaeda in Libya? Yet, I thought they were OUR ENEMY? Do you not see that we are following the very SAME pattern set by Hitler? Only difference is, the nations he picked off one by one were European, whereas we are doing that with Middle-Eastern ones! How much more “police state security” needs to be implemented HERE to supposedly “protect us” from all the “big bad terrorists” (even though you have a better chance of dying from lightening or a bee sting!) before you FINALLY GET IT? Wake up dummy! Ron Paul understands what George Washington warned about in his farewell address (as well as our other founding fathers): STAY OUT OF THE AFFAIRS OF FOREIGN NATIONS AND NEVER GIVE UP YOUR LIBERTY FOR THE SAKE OF SO-CALLED SAFETY AND SECURITY! Liberty is a God-given commodity, and it is very precious and must therefore be PROTECTED AT ALL COSTS! That’s why they set up our Bill of Rights and Constitution, something you are obviously unfamiliar with, UNLIKE RON PAUL!

  • JESSE

    Standing up for our constitution is not a fools game sir.

    As a Tea Party member, I reject this endorsement. Wrong Paul, or Dr. Giggles, does not represent the Tea Party in either values, nor on policy.

    • SONshineman

      Hey “Kini”! I don’t know what “Tea Party” you’re a member of, but it’s obviously NOT the real one! If you were, you’d know that the Tea Party movement was started by RON PAUL supporters. DUH!!! And to all you idiots on here who want to say Ron Paul is “dangerous” and “unrealistic”, and worst of all, “as bad as Obama”, all I can say is, it’s because of stupid ignorant fools like YOU that we end up with typical New World Order controlled “politicians” like Obama and Bush and Clinton. You’re so ignorant when it comes to history, and it’s clear you are unfamiliar with the US Constitution and what our founding fathers stood for. Do a search and read George Washington’s farewell address, or Patrick Henry’s famous speech “Give Me Liberty of Give Me Death!” According to YOUR mentality, THEY would also be considered “dangerous” and “out of touch with reality”. I keep saying this and will continue to: support anyone OTHER than Ron Paul, and you insure FOUR MORE YEARS OF THE OBAMA-NATION! Romney, Perry, Santorum, Gengrich ALL work for the same globalist elite “string pullers” that control sock-puppets like Bush and Obama! Please!

  • http://ThePatriotUpdate eegee

    Is this man normal? Doesn’t he realize that Ron Paul is a fruitcake???? He is as bad as Obama. He is a racist and anti-Semitic. He would destroy our country just like Obama. No sane South Carolinian will vote for Ron Paul. They know he is as crazy as a loon. I have visited S.C. many times and the people there are bright and well-informed citizens. They want the U.S. to thrive, not turn into a third-world country. Ron Paul is a joke, but dangerous.

    If the tea party supports someone like Ron Paul, I just left the tea party..In my view he is far from being conservative. He will never beat Obama, he is old and can hardly talk. His view on defense and not to mention how he want to legalize drugs is a disaster for our County. What is wrong with you people

      Iran is NOT a problem. The war mongers have been harping about Iran for decades and it’s all just so we have a “boogeyman” to be afraid of so they can continue wars forever (and also raise the price of oil).

    • yoely

      He never said it would be OK for Iran to have a nuclear bomb. He said it is not surprising that they would want to have one. He also implied that it would be foolish if not dangerous to risk starting WWIII in order to prevent them from aquiring one.

    • yoely

      He never said it was OK and he would rather they not have a nuclear weapon. However he suggests that he would not risk starting WWIII to prevent them from acquiring it. Maybe you would?

    • carolina kid

      i think Ron Paul would be a great secretary of the Treasury but he refuses to see the radical muslim as a threat. they have said as soon as they get the bomb they will wipe Israel off the planet. and then we are next. do you not believe them? their own words. they think they can hasten the return of the 12th imman if they can kill all the iinfidels. that’s you and me. what say you?

    • Detector

      “Wacko? Just what about him is wacko? I invite your reply.”
      According to Dr. Paul…we should totally “butt out” of other country’s affairs, including Iran. He is totally ambililent as to whether this rogue nation should obtain a nuke. This sponser of terror, world-wide, would come up with suitcase dirty bombs in the event that they couldn’t successfully put a warhead on a rocket. Which group gets one…let’s see, this one goes to hezbolla, this one goes to Al Queda, etc. How simple to get one of these to our shores. How freakin naive can you be? Paul argues, “The Russians have had them for years, and they didn’t bomb anybody.” The Russians were adherents of the Mutually assured Destruction” (MAD) concept…the Iranians have no such conscience and would just as soon die as martyrs. Paul is the Neville Chamberlain of the 21st Century. That said, I truly believe that Paul has a place in the eventual winner’s administration…that of the “Head of Agency Dismantlement.” Paul would be wonderful at cutting expenditures to the bone. M. Kelley

    • Mark in LA

      Well Rambo, what do you suggest we do? Like the rest of them you don’t have a real world answer. You also demand that Paul give his “plan” for stopping Iran but never expect the same for candidates you are paid to shill for on these sites.

    • yoely

      Detector

      Do you think the Iranians are stupid? They would know that a Ron Paul would have our forces annialate them after obtaining a declaration of war from Congress. Then he would bring the troops home.

      It’s the saber rattling and “warlike” actions

      I’ll tell you what is “wacko” about him. He is a thoughtful, honest, constitutional canadate. He never waivers, and in this day in age, THAT is considered completly wacko! Look at what he is up against. I think most people just want to be lied to and get their handout. It makes me sick. Do something honest, for a change people, and vote for Ron Paul!

    • John Acord

      USA Wacko– Obviously, you know nothing about Paul’s 30 year record as a consistent conservative with impeccable credentials to be President. Paul will simply say in the debates with Obama what he says every time he presents his case. If you really think cutting federal government spending, auditing the Fed and bringing the troops home to defend our borders is wacko, then you really need to stop reading the MSM and listening to Bill O’Silly.

    • http://ThePatriotUpdate eegee

      Very well said.

    • Suzye Marino

      Then, why has he only succeeded in passing one bill in 30 years if his record is so impeccable??

    • Hank is back

      Because his record is so impeccable and no one else’s is.

    • yoely

      Because he was voting against the overspending, nonsensical squandering of the country’s wealth and he was faced with the establishment going along to get along congressional attitude of business as usual with all it’s inherent corruption.

    • Ladyliberty

      Suzye, because he goes by the constitution and the others do not. We can only image what a mockery the Senate and Congress have made of our constitution. People now see that we only have one Party and it is call, “BIG GOVERNMENT PARTY”….with two wings democrats and republicans. Both want the same thing POWER AND MONEY. People are finally getting his message after 30 years because of the internet. People trusted our government to do the right thing and they didn’t. Now we have to take charge and start listening to what they are saying… AND CHANGE THE WAY WASHINGTON WORKS…this takes time but we will do it.

    • ELIZABETH P FORTNER

      Dr Paul is going against the grain and the power brokers. When that happens, bills that should be passed for the good of the people, don’t get passed. There are not enough politicians like Dr Paul who will stand up for what is in the best interest of the American People. Other than him being ‘Isolationist’ or whatever, CHANGE, is what Dr Paul will bring..If we have to become more ‘Isolationist’ in the short term, we will have to do what we have to do..

    • Sarge

      Since when does “passing bills” make for a good politician?? Don’t we have enough laws already?? Come on people…Ron Paul is for smaller federal government, states’ rights, secure borders, pro-2nd amendment & against our military being used to bully/police (whatever you wanna call it) the world.
      Ron Paul for President 2012!

    • James

      Perhaps you can find time to search for H.R.1146. I believe you will find that during the 30 year period you question, Dr. Paul’s bills have been voted down by your Dems and Rinos. His bills have been to follow the Constitution and have been for the value of America.

    • Hank is back

      What is wisdom?

      Send the GOP the message that they can keep sending us moderates and liberals and that we will never support a radical?

    • Julie

      That is an unfair statement. I too was not for him. But since I was not crazy for anybody else, I decided to go to his web site and read what he had to say for himself. I found that I agreed with everything he had to say, except not to crazy about his foreign policy, but he does say he would go to war if we need to to protect our country. Besides if we cease to exist as a country( which is what will happen under Obama), then what good is a foreign policy anyway. So think about that. No leader will have all the things we may want as an individual, but if they come really close we should support him. At least we know he was born here and a true American.

    • Pepper

No soldier wants to have a war going he and he prays for Peace! It is time to bring our men home to strengthen them train them and be ready for a war! It is not in our best interest as a people to seek wars, to agitate other nations and cultures and try and dictate to them how they should live. The American government has been on a war footing and based it’s economy on warfare sine WWI! It is time to end the madness that separates us from the rest of the world and allow a peacemaker to return the U.S. to a legal, Constitutional form of government! Only Ron Paul can do that! You people don’t know what your talking about regarding Ron Paul! He is Obama’s worst nightmare! He appears to be yours too! Maybe your not a true conservative is what the problem is here.

      Establishment Republicans will just vote a party line. It is the Conservative Libertarians who will not change positions, so the party has to move to the Right to appeal to those voters. However, Ron Paul also has a broad base of appeal.

      Our government funded BIN LADEN, helped Al Qaeda during the Balkans episode, refused to shoot Osama THREE TIMES when he was in our cross hairs, were ten minutes too late bombing Tora Bora (where he was hiding), prevented highly skilled mercenaries from going after him, and took ten years to find the man, when with our CIA, our military, the reward on his head, our foreign aid (bribery) to Pakistan, etc., and God knows what else, we should have been able to do it in six months.

      Not to mention the CIA and the FBI each had a file on Mohammed Atta, and if they had been allowed by Bush and Clinton to access each other’s files, they would have detained him and foiled the attacks.

      With all this, how can you NOT say that our ‘benign’ government is not just as culpable as the hijackers?

    I was originally a supporter of Bachmann, and Perry next. Not gonna happen. So, I had to ask myself, seeing the President (King) take more power in the last few months, by bypassing Congress. That is US! We are at 100.3% of our GDP! No more inch by inch of going to the left little by little, even with Republican fights. We have to be free again! Have an open mind. I have. I have completely changed my mind, and I am supporting Ron Paul. As a Tea Party member, I don’t want to slowly go down the road to tyranny, I want to gain back our freedoms again quickly, before it is too late. Doesn’t anyone see the Reagan connections, too? Paul would gain Democrats and independents as well. And we can’t afford to lay down now. Think for yourselves and don’t listen to the media. Take a step back and really read into it. What have we done with Iran since 1979 anyways? This has been 30+ years. Don’t make that your roadblock to wanting and yearning for freedom and liberty again.

    I think I will vote for Paul too. I have been supporting the Tea Party since 2010. Rinoromney I could not vote for at all. Now, Gingrich and Santorum are basically saying and doing NOTHING. PAUL IS ALL THAT IS LEFT. PLUS, THE KICKER, HE HAS THE BIG MAJORITY OF MILITARY SUPPORT. HE HAS TO COME OUT AND SAY HE WOULD NOT PROSECUTE OUR SOLDIERS AND USE BOMBS, NOT BODIES, ON THE MUSLIMS.

  • Robert Lebischak

    Does that mean the Tea Party leader in SC, wants free drugs, Iran to have the bomb, cutting the military, the Middle East to go to war, the US to be Isolationist, he approved of Ron Paul’s past with his paper? Lets get real, Ron Paul has some good ideas, but he will be eaten alive by Obama and the machine. Our hope is Newt, the SC Tea Party should think about that, before it’s too late.

  • Bob M.

    Noone should worry about Ron Paul. While I am amazed that the SC Tea Party would endorse this nut (koo-koo, koo-koo)and I will no longer have any other communication with them, period, Ron Paul (by his own admission) will never be the Republican nominee–no way, no how, not ever. The Rep. establishment know he’s nutty as a fruit cake and a complete idiot.

  • chuck bushong

    I am for Ron Paul and a member of the Tea Party and that is good. I am a member of another Organization that is supporting him also. People know that he tells it like it is, and I think they like it about him, I know I do.

  • Lee

    Why is everyone buying the media and GOP establishment hype that Romney is the only one that can beat Obama. It is very likely that Obama will beat Romney. There is no clear choice between Romney and Obama except Romney is one of the 1%. The left will make big things of the Bain issue and wealthy beyond belief, job killer Romney.

    • stevor

      You’re exactly right. the “media” is purposefully saying that only Romney can win because they’re afraid of Paul. They KNOW from history that they’re LOTS of lemmings out there without brains who will vote for anybody who is predicted to win so after the election they can tell all their friends they’re a winner because they voted for the winner.
      Don’t believe the media and vote AGAINST they being a Pied Piper to the race being between Romney and O’Bummer, which would essentially like being in old USSR and only having one choice.

    • Mark in LA

      Yes Lee, the Republican lemmings don’t realize that the Republicans need the white working class and they will never vote for a vulture capitalist. The lemmings have convinced themself that the hatred of Obama is so wide and deep that it will overcome this, they are wrong.

  • gray

    Geingrich will be the best debater to take on Obama. Geingrich will take him apart.

    • stevor

      Yes, Gingrich is a good debater but he’s a hasbeen and also a Globalist who is backed by the New World Order folks. If he is really for getting rid of O’Bummer, he can still use his mouth to tell how bad O’Bummer is AFTER Paul wins the nomination! (but that’s only if he’s really a conservative and not a puppet of the elite)

  • http://TrueSpeak.org JIM GUIRARD

    Because there in a growing prospect that Mitt Romney will eventually be the Republican nominee for the Presidency (and therefore our last best hope for an Obama-free America), voters and analysts of all stripes should be examining the validity of the “flip-flopper” albatross which has been hung so heavily on the man — both by many of his GOP competitors and by the Barack Obama campaign.

    No small wonder that Romney’s polling numbers have been stuck in the mid-twenties – when neither he nor anyone else has offered a convincing narrative as to why he is almost certainly not the unprincipled, unreliable “weathervane” that the derisive “flip-flop” label implies.

    In this connection, please recognize that while Romney has, indeed, changed many earlier positions, all of these “flips” seem to have been in center-right and “moderate conservative” directions. And while there is no absolute GUARANTEE that these positions will remain intact, there has apparently been no “flopping back” to positions which were once more centrist or even center-left. For example, the new-and-improved Mitt has become

    o Increasingly pro-Life (based on both medical science and 10th Amendment States’ Rights)

    o Increasingly pro-Second Amendment “Gun Rights”

    o Increasingly tough on illegal immigration and on border security

    o Increasingly anti-ObamaCare (born of universal HillaryCare, not one-state MittCare)

    o Increasingly supportive of Paul Ryan’s “MediChoice” versus Obama’s “MediCrash”

    o Increasingly supportive of enforcing the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA)

    o Increasingly supportive of Simpson-Bowles spending cuts & early Budget balancing

    o Increasingly skeptical of the Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) “ClimateScam”

    o Increasingly tough on national security and Defense Department funding issues

    o Increasingly a de facto Tea Parties Movement “ConCentrist” (a new part-conservative and part-centrist label for the politico-economic Center-Right) — which defines both the TPM and Mitt Romney (and perhaps his running mate, as well) far more accurately than do the “ultra-right” and “radical extremist” labels spouted by the Left.

    And just as importantly, it lays appropriate claim to a major part of the “centrist” label that both the Obamanoid and Hillarian leftists so fervently and so deceitfully want to co-opt for themselves.

    At a time when “change” is all the rage, does this not entitle Mitt Romney to Ronald Reagan’s “Trust but Verify” chance to verify the stability and durability of his newfound ConCentrism? After all, is this not the kind of change for the better we seek in millions of well-intentioned but confused independents and centrists who were so thoroughly seduced by the “OPRAH Land” (Obama-Pelosi-Reid-and-Hillary-Land) Plantation bosses in the elections of 2006 and 2008?

    And for further verification of the man’s bona fides, we should notice that in the midst of all his policy changes for the better over the last several years, Mitt Romney himself has maintained and even strengthened his fine reputation as an exemplary family man, a serious person of religious faith and high ethics, a hugely successful and job-creating businessman, a proven manager of complex bureaucracies, and a thoughtful and experienced leader with sufficient wisdom and “gravitas” to be a good President — and even a great one if he keeps “flipping” in the Right direction, as a formerly “New Deal” Democrat Ronald Reagan began (and continued) to do about 60 years ago.

    paul will win paul cant lie
    and obama cant tell the truth
    thank god the teaparty got their head out of their you know what

    • just sayin

      You say Paul can’t lie? If Ron Paul is honest, then he is incompetent as a manager in my opinion. Here is the fact. Please don’t blather on about NWO, Neo Cons and the like. Just make your determination which one he is and then temper your future comments using common sense rather than Mantra! His views that were written about in HIS newsletters for years with HIS name on them are scary. He claims that he did not know what they were writing for years. To me, that sounds like irresponsible management AT MINIMUM. How can someone who cannot even supervise his OWN newsletters manage international affairs and the US government. So IF he is honest, he is irresponsible and incompetent AT THE LEAST. My belief is that he DID know what was in his newsletters for YEARS and did supervise what went in there. THAT would make him patently dishonest by claiming that he did not know. What would the average person think if they were not a PaulBot or a cult member? My guess would be the latter but the former is possible. Which do you believe, since you claim he is the ONLY honest one? Is he irresponsible and incompetent or dishonest?

    Gingrich would, but Obama will find a way not to debate him. I’m not sure he will debate anyone.

  • alfred

    Please let me inform all of you. Doesn’t matter who gets the nomination; Obama WILL BE REELECTED!He is actively working with several oraganizations to “Fix” the election so he is assured of winning. He has ACORN affiliates working on voter registration fraud, he has a committee working to put a third party candidate on the ballot to split the Republican vote, and He is fighting all voter ID laws so any illegal noncitizen, felon, etc can vote. It has been reported that George Soros is trying to buy off key Sec. Of States that certify their states vote. And I am sure you will see more black panther intimidation at the polls.Also, riots, chaos, violence and protests will be rampant throughout America as we approach November to disorganize the whole election process. and if for some unforseen reason Obama would still lose after all this, there will be mass racial war and riots and Obama will have to declare martial law and take over the government. No way will he ever give up the Presidency. He is a communist dictator, a terrorist and an Islamic terrorist sympathizer.He will be our ruler for many years to come. these people are ruthless evil people.

    • stevor

      Unfortunately, he may try to fix it. Diebold company that has the voting machines could easily fix it so the machines test fine until voting day and then change votes to O’Bummer.
      Also, there’s a plan for refinancing homes at 4%, which could greatly help the economy (temporarily?) and get him legitimate votes that way.
      Still, “don’t give up the ship!”

    • michael putman

      I hope they do try it, because they will be dealing with the biggest armed nation in the world and would give a great excuse to storm washington multi million strong and armed to the teeth ready to TAKE america back for REAL. And I hope there are some black panther pussies at my polling station.

Who knows, their are weird people everywhere, including South Carolina, which is now becoming a huge joke.

Businesses are being crippled by Obama’s laws and regulations. We have to get behind the most likely GOP winner and that is Mitt Romney in order to defeat Obama. Ron Paul has crazy ideas when it comes to Foreign Policy! We cannot be “nice” to war mongers like the leaders in Iran. It is Time to KICK OBAMA OUT! Let us make him a one term president.

    Ron Paul and his Paulestinians sound a lot like Obama and his minions because Liber-als and Liber-tarians come from the same root of Libertinism.
    It can be hard to differentiate between the two on some threads because Libertines are prone to the same “cult of personality” witnessed by the
    Obamabots and Paulbots, elitism, revisionist history, dislike of our Judeo-Christian heritage, and moral relativism.

    Of the 3 major policy platforms, Liber-als and Liber-tarians basically agree on Social and National (in)Security policy, although it may be for different
    reasons. Their major difference is over Fiscal policy. Liber-tarians are thus 2/3 Liberal and not what Reagan described as the “3-legged-stool”
    conservatism of strong Social – Fiscal – National Security policy.

    If viewed as two sides of the same coin, Liber-alism leads to the tyranny of Collectivism, and Liber-tarianism to the tyranny of Anarchy. Witness the
    uber states rights chaos that Paul advocates, which is NOT original intentism, but instead a desire to return to the Articles of Confederation
    that pre-dated our Constitution. Ron Paul is the Lord Of The Flies candidate…

    • Hank is back

      Was the Father of Liberalism, John Locke, a Libertine?

      Last I checked he was an Old-School Calvinist. Doesn’t get much more anti-Libertine than that you moron.

      Don’t confuse the Classical Liberalism of Locke, Smith, Jefferson, Bastiat, and Cleveland with the social liberalism of the progressives and socialists.

      Don’t confuse traditional conservatism (synonymous with Classical Liberalism) with the “isms” which descend from the Tories, which are any variant of statism, be it socialism (Obama), progressivism (Gingrich), establishmentarianism (Romney), neoconservatism (Obama, Gingrich, Romney, and Santorum), or theocracy (Santorum).

      You sir are confused. Any moron can look at the word ‘liberal’, ‘libertine’, and ‘libertarian’ and assume they are all basically the same. But this is a falsehood.

      Libertarians believe in Liberty derived from our natural rights. They might not always agree on what that means, but such is life.

      Libertines believe in the ‘liberty’ to do whatever pleases oneself even if it infringes upon the rights of others.

      Modern liberals believe in the right to the fruits of other’s labor.

      Libertarians believe people have the right to be libertines, but they believe their is an equal right to be prudish.

      Libertines care not what people believe as long as they get something out of it.

      Modern Liberals pay lip service to the right of conscience and thought, but are always seeking to control and abrogate these rights.

    Ron Paul will never beat Obama in a debate. He garbles his words when he speaks, and he is old. Perception is important to the voting public, and when you put these two side by side, Obama wins. I want to see Obama defeated, but I don’t think Ron Paul is the person to do it. Maybe if Rand Paul were running he would have a chance.

    Paul has some good economic points, but his foreign policy is crazy. He wants to let Iran have a nuclear weapon, and some of you think this business with Iran is fantasy. Believe that at peril for these people are fanatics. It’s not like dealing with the Russians in the cold war. These fanatics would dearly love to destroy us and believe they will become martyrs in doing so.

  • Frank

    I’m part of the Tea Party in FL and clearly the representative from Ron Paul got the most applause after the various speakers presented their case for each Republican candidate. The 3 big Tea Party principles are:
    1. Fiscal responsibility
    2. Limited government
    3. Support free markets
    Ron Paul is the clear winner. The representative from Ron Paul spent much of his time explaining his foreign policy position, which the conservative crowd seemed to accept. As for the 3 principles above, Ron Paul clearly won hands down.

  • unclebarry

    The only Paul I would consider voting for is Rand. Yes Rand—not Ron. I don’t care what Ron says or what his position is—after speaking for 120 seconds he turns into a “cranky old man.” Keep your eye on him. You’ll see. And then imagine him in a press conference or meeting and getting “cranky” with the folks he’s speaking with. He comes across as having no patience. And I for one do NOT want that kind of quality in someone who is suppose to hold the world together. And then there is still the question of the articles he wrote or were written in his name along with his support for Israel. Which I’m not clear on. However if he is the nominee he will get my vote.

  • Jason Herr

    First I will state that Ron Paul is the only candidate who cares about civil liberties. No other candidate is speaking out against the dangerous National Defense Authorization Act, which allows the United States government to detain any American citizen without a trial, a lawyer, due process, and send them off to a foreign land to be tortured and never heard from again. Joseph Stalin did not even have a law which gave him this kind of power. Second, Ron Paul is against the NDAA’s predecessor the Patriot Act, which has also trampled our civil liberties. I will borrow the famous words of Patrick Henry: “I know not what course others may choose, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death.”

    Ron Paul is also against the overt police state that has arisen in America over the last ten years. He also opposes the ongoing wars that have bankrupted America and have cost the lives of many of our brave men and women. If you still believe that America is in the Middle East fighting terrorism, then you need to do some more research. America’s motto today is, “divide and conquer” and take control of foreign resources. The Military Industrial Complex wants war because they make huge profits from government contracts. Ron Paul is the only candidate who has a plan to fix the economy. He wants to cut 1 Trillion from the budget the first year. Ron Paul also wants to abolish the Federal Reserve, which has completely destroyed the value of the dollar in America. Why should we as Americans have to bail out corporations who steal from the working person? Furthermore, the Federal Reserve was designed to steal from the America people and enslave the American people. Let me give you a brief description on how the Federal Reserve works. The Federal Reserve prints up money out of thin air, and then charges the United States government the interest on the loan. However, the government does not pay back the money, we the people do. The government gives us the bill. Why should we have to pay back money to a private bank that is not even a part of the federal government? That is absurd. The Federal Reserve is the greatest scheme and theft of hard working people’s money in history.

    I could go on and on about how Ron Paul is the only candidate who cares about “We the People,” but this should at least get you started.

  • Patriot Joe

    Come on people. Think for yourselves. all I read is the same old arguments. There are alternatives to Romney and Paul.
    I like Gingrich but Santorum is more like the true conservative I seek.
    So there are other choices. Saying they can’t win or don’t have enough experience or too much experience, etc, is just what you are being spoon fed by the libs and the republican establishment.
    I have said it before and it bears repeating many more times this year.
    So far, the perfect candidate has not emerged and we will probably have to make do with the current crop of contenders.
    Therefore, stop complaining, do your homework and pick the most conservative candidate who is already in this race. I like Santorum and he has much to recommend him.
    The goal must be to defeat Obama and it must be this year. If he gets another four years, chances are good you will only be allowed to be an Obama rubber stamp at subsequent elections. They will be sham elections just like any other dictatorship, Venezuela for example.
    I prefer Santorum, would vote for Gingrich, but will enthusiastically support the republican nominee in high hopes of defeating that evil dictator in the making, Barack Hussein Obama.

    I was a little apprehensive about Newt Gingrich because he is a longtime member of The Council on Foriegn Relations, [ in itself an enemy of the United States ], but after hearing Newt speak in my state [ S.C. ] two days ago I am back in his camp. He was willing, on national television to say the following : ” Barack Obama is a Saul Alinsky socialist and an enemy of this nation, and priority one is to get rid of him. If I’m elected, 2 hours after my inaguration I will abolish all of the czars he has appointed….we need to get out of The United Nations, or re-vamp it because in its present form it is simply a tool that the global elites use to do something they can’t do any other way…control The United States….I am totally in favor of the 2nd amendment and against gun-control….we need to adhere strictly to the Constitution, and if it doesn’t allow something , then we don’t need to do it..we need a voter ID so the LEFT can’t have “non-people”, dead people, and non-existent people voting !.. Newt said a lot more, and after hearing him, I am inclined to rally behind him…he was a part of the Reagan team and in a debate, HE WILL MAKE OBAMA LOOK LIKE AN UN-EDUCATED, ILLITERATE FOOL !!!!!

  • Real American

    I support the TeaParty, but Ron nut job Paul??? hes more liberal in some things than odumbo!! The idiot is the least electable !!! Ron Paul is a whiner, like gee whiz, how come he did this or dind that gosh golly get they gotta stop than he would me as much of an embarassment to this country as odumbo is!!

    • ED

      Real American LIBERAL THAT SHOULD BE Ron Paul is smarter than you could ever be

    • Pathfinder0100

      Ed you really should check out Ron Paul’s foriegn policy.

    • Pepper

      We did. That is why we support him. He would defend us, instead of making us hated throughout the world.

    • Jonathan Gartner

      I agree different sides of the same coin. Beware the brainless Paulbots they are every where.

  • Duane

    I like some of his idea?but his foreign policy is totally of the wall, irresponsible.

    • Peggy Sparks

      Go read his stuff for your self, go to is website paul.houe.gov or Ron Paul 2012 I hope every one knows how to read! And I am a Ron Paul supporter but will not vote romney or Gringrich nor Perry nor Santorum

    • just sayin

      Well, just stay home then. Please do not say something stupid like I would rather vote for Obama. That is what he is counting on. My belief is that he is behind some of the supporters of Ron Paul just to disrupt things!

    • Jonathan Gartner

      I have followed this nut job for 30 years his form of government would damn us as quickly as Obama’s as for you Paul bots grow up and stop drinking his kool-aid

  • Eddie

    You idiot….Now you did it. You have created a divide in the Tea party that may destroy it. Keep your friggin endorsement to your sorry self. Nobody in their right mind would endorse this little pip squeak munchkin nut case. He’s an idiot simply because of his position on Israel and Iran. Anybdy who says that Israel is on their own and we shouldn’t help them is signing our death warrant. Anybody who says that a rogue muslime nation is cool to have nukes is out of their friggin mind. You Mr. Davis are a bona fide nut case too. Have you not looked at what and who Ron Paul really is. He’s a libiterian. He’s not a Conservative. I think I’ve figured out how to become a politician, just shed about 100 IQ points and you’re there. Mr. Davis, you need to partner up with Mr. Johnson in the House. You too would make a great psycho team. Mr. Johnson could explain how Guam will tip over and capsize from having too many Marines on it and you can explain all the logical attributes of supporting the munchkin nut case Ron Paul. Sir, you are an idiot !

      You know nothing of what the TEA party stands for if you are NOT for RON PAUL and his return to constitutional government platform.

  • AZ Rick

    What is it with Ron Paul supporters? They’re like Jim Jones followers. Do these people think for a minute any sane person will allow a suicidal maniac like Ron Paul to be elected. It’s bad enough that Obama is going to let the Iranians get their nukes. Ron Paul will let them USE THEM – most likely ON US!

    Paul constantly whines about the cost of war. You Paul supporters ask yourselves what’s the cost of a glowing radioactive hole where Houston (and the vast majority of our oil refining capacity) used to be! Just how much will loosing one whole American city cost this nation? All Iran has to do is put one nuke on one tanker and sail it up the Houston ship channel and no one will know anything about it until after the blinding flash!

    God in Heaven these people are insane!

    Paul supporters are delusional if they think a majority of us will choose Wacko over the Obamanation – who is clearly the worst President in American history. As a Republican Party precinct captain, I’ll do absolutely everything I possibly can to help Obama defeat Paul if he is the party’s nominee.

    Pick someone else you idiots!

    • Larry F

      AZ Rick are you so gullable to even think Iran would make such a move? That would be like the boys scouts , no the girl scouts picking a fight with the US Marines. I know the nut jobs in charge in Iran are idiots but I also know they don’t have a death wish. No matter who is the president of the US if Iran should take such a punch at us inside our borders we would immediately obliterate them from the face of the earth! Get real!

    • just sayin

      Larry, you are ill-informed. The DO have a death wish. That is the point!! You and Ron Paul just don’t believe what is in their religious teachings which makes you incapable of understadning that the threat is more serious than you believe!

    • Pepper

      If they have a death wish then Israel will gladly fulfill it. We need to leave them the hell alone.

    • Pathfinder0100

      Don’t have a death wish?? Where have you been? Don’t know any thing about 72 virgins? Or suicide bombers?? Wake up Larry! Do a little research.

    • Jonathan Gartner

      We in dealing with muslims are not dealing with a rational state or other type of organization we are dealing with a religion that in its scripture wants our heads and does not care how it gets them. More of Pauls irrational behavior that would leave all of US in danger.

    • just sayin

      That doesn’t make sense to re-elect Obama and doom our country! How about Ron Paul will not get the nomination and you can spend your time working on turning Congress Republican to avoid any damage a President can do. The Congress we have now is inept and dishonest, and that includes Ron Paul.

  • TapestryGarden

    Reading through I see those with “hidden due to low ratings” invariably are critical of Ron Paul. The zeal of his supporters is frightening. Ron Paul is frightening. I have now relegated my comments to the hidden status because I dare speak up against Ron Paul. I see NOTHING about him that makes him appealing to a conservative values voter. His party supports abortion, legalizing drugs, prostitution and porn. Oh you can say well Ron Paul doesn’t endorse these things but the reality is it matters little what one individual says. He has once resigned from the Republican party because of RONALD REAGAN. The man does not demonstrate good judgment or the ability to get anything done. He has been in Congress for decades, preaching the same thing but has yet to persuade any but the neophytes who don’t know his history that he has anything to offer. Plus at age 77 he is older than Reagan was when he LEFT office. This man is in no way qualified to be President. If he is our nominee I will vote for Obama.

    • Akwarrior

      I Totally agree, Ron Paul hasn’t any idea of how the world works. He does not support Israel, he doesn’t care if Iran gets nuclear weapons, he needs to retire. My fear is he will run as an independent an take votes away from the one who is the nominee. Where has this country going to that the voters would listen to a man like Ron Paul.

    • just sayin

      Vote for Obama? Just stay home. You sounded logical till the last sentence. Ron Paul will not get the nomination.

    • Mutt

      These forums exemplify the statement, “There’s stupid everywhere you go”!

    • JV

      I agree. Look at his record. there are as many people who will stay home to not vote for Paul as would stay home if a real conservative were running and Paul supporters atayed home. Please do not be deceived. We need someone who will reduce government.

    • Hank is back

      Its called free speech you cnut. Only those who fear the truth would find that frightening.

      Get back in the kitchen!

  • Jeff Clark

    Thats completely INSANE ! Ron Paul is a nut and nothing except the removal of obama would justify voting for Paul. Paul will not win the nomination because his support is far too low and thats unlikely to change.

    • ED

      apparently heff you are not looking at the recent numbers even the main stream morons will tell you Ron Paul has the best support base in politics now

    • Jonathan Gartner

      And not even that we would get a President whom no one likes who rants and raves you want an example no problems. He has said that killing some one who is advancing the ability of a outlaw nation to kill or damage us terrorism if he were not so dangerous he would still be funny

    • Pepper

      That’s not even coherent. You people are amazing.

  • Larry

    ron paul will not draw the support of anyne with an i.q. over 60… i knew it was a matter of time thill the agenda morons took control of the tea party… simple economics and military superiority are too much for the blue munchkins of the paul campaign to grasp…

  • dj

    If they do endorse Paul the party is dead in the water this year and may not be able to find a oar for 2016. I will not support Paul and I am from Texas. What a loss. No party for those that don’t wish to vote democrats in office and know Paul is a strange old man. Unless we find a new party before the next election in 2016. We are going instead from one extreme (Obama) to the other extreme (Paul). No wonder this country is in the shape it’s in.

    • Jonathan Gartner

      And both Paul and Obama would led us to the same place and it aint pretty. Immoral Obama=Amoral Paul

  • Vince

    Its really unfortunate that the uneducated and narrow minded individuals will resort to one line alienated remarks before u try To degrade or dismiss ones choice the least u can do is read up on the individual before u call them kook crazy and the likes. I’ve had the pleasure to have Breakfrst with dr Paul and he is extremely smart
    That maybe one if his short comings because fir some he’s seems hard to follow. That’s because he’s on another level. The man is honest has ethics ,morality and a real gentleman He’s a visionary people called Columbus ,einstein Edison and many other visionary crazy so let’s see where we would ve if they were stopped
    I cannot believe how many people listen to msm take their word as gossple then go and argue some untruth why would anyone not want freedom, prosperity ,liberty and to eliminate debt ,IRS and many other unconstitutional gov interferences

  • rotor 700

    I truly believe that most of you anti-Paul people are a combination of illiterate, and just plain stupid.What do you not understand about non-intervention? Do you understand what Isolationism really is? When did Paul say he was for Isolationism???? Never.

    Iran is a pip-squeek, and could be silenced for ever in less time than it take you to relieve yourself, and clean up the mess after.

    Do any of you realize how difficult it would be for Iran to send a nuke to the USA,even a dirty bomb? We have lost much of our liberty to prove it.

    If you want another senseless war, then you go fight it with your body, and not ours,our sons or daughters.

    In addition to all the saber rattling, that Iran is famous for, do you really believe they would be so ignorant as to start a nuclear war? They may be a bunch of barbarians from the middle ages and before, but they are not dumb.

    • just sayin

      Well, I am certainly not illiterate, but I am a simple thinker! If Ron Paul is honest, then he is incompetent as a manager in my opinion. Here is the fact. Please don’t blather on about NWO, Neo Cons and the like. Just make your determination which one he is and then temper your future comments using common sense rather than Mantra! His views that were written about in HIS newsletters for years with HIS name on them are scary. He claims that he did not know what they were writing for years. To me, that sounds like irresponsible management AT MINIMUM. How can someone who cannot even supervise his OWN newsletters manage international affairs and the US government. So IF he is honest, he is irresponsible and incompetent AT THE LEAST. My belief is that he DID know what was in his newsletters for YEARS and did supervise what went in there. THAT would make him patently dishonest by claiming that he did not know. What would the average person think if they were not a PaulBot or a cult member? My guess would be the latter but the former is possible. Which do you believe, since you claim he is the ONLY honest one? Is he irresponsible and incompetent or dishonest?

    • just sayin

      Yes, I do believe they would be willing to start a war. It is their religious belief. Your argument fails at its primary point with your closing line. They do want to meet their maker. That is the point. So stop calling everyone else ill-informed. It is you and Ron Paul that follow that illogical path and THAT is what makes him nuts!

    • Mark in LA

      Then why haven’t they started any wars up until now?

    • Jonathan Gartner

      Actually you Paul bots are the ignorant ones. I have several advance degree in History, Poly Sci and Mathamatics. I have watched the loon from texas for over 30 years I equate him with maxine waters same insanity

    • Pepper

      Good for you. I have a normal degree and a lot of real world experience. I’ve been following Paul also for that same 30 years and come to quite different conclusions than you.

      Mentioning Marxine Waters in the same breath with Ron Paul, a true constitutionalist, is nothing short of obscene.

      As far as I can tell, Dr. Paul loves his family, his God and his country. I don’t get the basis of this “amoral” thing you keep throwing out there with no explanation.

  • jake

    Ron Paul is not a republican, so why is he not running under his own party. Oh yeah thats right because he already tried that. No one from his party will ever be elected.

    • just sayin

      No, but like a magician, he proposed lots of earmarks for his district and cleverly voted against them when he knew they would pass. A PaulBot would call that honest. Me, I call it lying.

    • Hank is back

      Hey moron.

      The Constitution gives Congressman authority to both TAX and REPRESENT their districts. If that is not an earmark, then nothing is.

      The money is there. If his constituents don’t get THEIR taxes back, then some other district will.

      Ron paul only proposes earmarks that can be funded by the money from his district.

      He proposes these earmarks as legitimate amendments to bills with the hope that the bill will in the end be Constitutional. If Unconstitutional portions are left in or added to that Bill, he votes against it.

      To my knowledge he has never said he has never supported earmarks. What he has said is that he usually ENDS UP voting against his own earmarks because other members of Congress always ruin the bill that contain them.

      You are civilly illiterate if you don’t know that the primary purpose of a Congressman is to use his districts tax dollars to fund legitimate government programs in his district.

      i know you are a simpleton, but not everything can be accurately viewed through that lens.

    First Tom Davis does not speak for the Tea Party, Second 1 bill in 30 years, he should return all of his salary what a failure.

You get on my case and say I must be crazy because how can anyone not like Pizza. That’s not what I said. That is what it is with Paul. People like some of him but not enough of him, so you babble on about how they could not like someone who could have good fiscal policy. That’s not what they said. This is PaulBots practicing Liberal Deception. That is why you are labeled as ill-informed and illiterate by right thinking people and then you have to insult them. It’s extremely annoying!

      Thank you! I have been saying this for weeks now. I can’t believe so many people are so willing to cut off their noses to spite their faces. Folks, there is no one perfect candidate. Unfortunately, all the candidates can not win so we have to throw our weight behind the one that does. I don’t care who gets the nomination, I will vote for anyone to vote against the current WH occupant. I thought that was the game plan. The only way we will win is to vote. That means every one of you must vote for who ever is the candidate.

      I hate to say this, but we can take a lesson from the left. No matter their differences in opinions, they all stick together and throw all their weight and vote in a candidate. Remember there were so many that were upset because Hillary was not the candidate? Well, they all stuck by the Democratic Ticket didn’t they. They weren’t holding their noses and they were not sitting home like a bunch of cry babies because their candidate didn’t get the nomination. They were out to win and they did what it takes. This is what we need to do. We need to stick together for once and win. This election is about keeping our freedom and keeping our great home which is America!!

    • Jonathan Gartner

      Actually unlike you I have but my nutts on the line you Paul bot are completely whacked look at what he has just said about killing those who wish to kill us.

  • DickC

    Conservative from birth, I have carefullw evaluated all candidates and potential candidates and I’ll have to be honest my poiltical strategy for 2012 will be ABO however I’ll have to hold my nose if Paul is our candidate since there is very little difference between him and the NM.

    • just sayin

      He will not get the endorsement. He is un-electable. Make him Secretary of the Treasury to replace the tax cheat we have now.

    Ron Paul getting the nomination for President of the United States, by the Tea Party of S.C., when the U.S. needs a strong leader, makes one believe that all the members of the Tea Party in S.C., have mental disabilities.

      Don’t worry Abe. It’s just the PaulBots who fit that description. The rest of us are still sane, but we are getting annoyed at the non-Ron Paul supporter comments being hidden by returning PaulBots. That’s the way the Marxists do it! It just takes three of their wack-jobs to make it look like all the comments against him get hidden!

    • cj

      I am a tea party supporter. I CANNOT BELIEVE that Davis endorsed Ron Paul who is the WEAKEST candidate of all. He is worse than obama on the security of America. Also I just want to say that John Hunstman is a democrat pretending to be a republican in my opinion. I had read somewhere that his family supported obama and he told Greta VanSustren last week that obama was a good man and he respected him highly.Either of these two, Paul or Huntsman becoming the nominee would be a DISASTER.
      I think that Rick Perry would be a GREAT president. You know the liberal media gave him hell because he forgot a department he would close, but obama called Hawaii, Asia, he also said that he would campaign in all 57 states. Why does he get so many passes? I have watched Rick Perry in all of the debates and interviews and he is SO PASSIONATE about saving our country that he gets emotional with anger as I do when he talks about the things going on in Washington. That passion also causes me to draw a blank in my brain from time to time, but I believe someone so passionate with love for this country is EXACTLY who we need in the White House!

    • Charlie

      I agree with you totally, CJ!

  • just sayin

    Ron Paul is a nice man, although not truthful nor a good manager. His PaulBots are like a cold you cannot get rid of. They are rabid insulters of rational sounding people and I feel embarrassed to be playing the in the same sandbox with them. They show NO respect for anyone’s thoughts that disagree with their own and have ill-informed, closed minds. Nuff said. Negative that from view!

  • http://ipatriot brian

    I can’t wait to see how fast Ron Paul would have the country back in order under the constitution of the united states. All people both small and great will immediately reap the benefits of being truly free. Corruption in Washington would have an enemy. End these endless wars, and multiplying our enemies daily. Bring the troops home to protect our own country, not have check points set up to harass its own citizens.

    • cj

      Yes brian and get nuked by the countries that hate us because ron paul thinks they should be allowed to have nuclear weapons and because in his feeble minded opinion we caused 9/11 and all of the countries to hate us. You and the paulites just keep thinking that way and NONE of us will have to worry about anything because there will be NO America left on the planet.

    • Jonathan Gartner

      And vote for Paul you get fruit looops

  • d rash

    Up until today, I was a firm believer in the Tea Party. Now, with their endorsement of the whack job, complete fruitcake, “Ok for Iran to have a nuke, and legalize all drugs” candidate, RON PAUL, …. I’m done supporting them!

    • cj

      d rash, please don’t give up on the entire tea party. SC davis is just one mental person who I’m sure the majority of the tea party does not agree with.
      Let’s wait and see what happens and if the entire tea party wraps their support around this weak mouse ron paul, then we can and will stop supporting them.

    • Peggy Sparks

      FUNNY I WAS THINKING THE SAME THING MY SELF ONLY I WAS MAD BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT WRAPPING THEIR ARMS AROUND RON PAUL

  • hope4thefuture

    If people would only turn off their Tvs and radios for a few days and stop listening to the propaganda media and truly research Dr. Paul’s 100% Constitutional voting record and his plans to restore our Republic our children would have a chance to live in freedom rather than the tyranny both parties are subjecting “we the people” to. Both parties and the elitist media are terrified that the gravy train they all ride at our expense will halt and will say or do anything to stop a true American Patriot–our founders would be proud to stand along side Dr. Paul.

    • cj

      hope4thefuture I think Ron Paul is a United Nations patriot rather than a True American patriot. When all of the countries that want to destroy us are allowed to get weapons of mass destruction and our military is non-exixtant thanks to the present administration, YOU will be a slave to the united nations of the world instead of the United States of America. Ron Paul is a coo-coo when it comes to our security and foreign policy.

    • Hank is back

      100 bucks says your Congressman voted against HR 1146, which would have effectively ended our involvement with the UN, and was authored by none other than Ron Paul.

  • Dave

    No longer a member, nor supporter of the tea party. This senator is a far bigger idiot than paul.

    • Patriott 101

      Your own govenor is the TEA PARTY TRAITOR! She endorsed the “establishment favorite” Romney! What a joke and a sellout! Get rid of her next time around SC!

  • Glenn

    The phenomenon of Ron Paul is quite easy to understand if you understand History and Providence. It was the least likely that brought forth our Great Nation. Remember against all odds

    George Washington crossed the Delaware River and fought which should have been an unbeatable battle. The “We The People” back then believed in something they were willing to die

    for. That my friends was Freedom. Even with an “untrained army” using burlap for socks….we won! Why did we win? I believe as with our forefathers “Divine Providence”. Looking outside

    the “politically correct Box” of today it’s no wonder why our youth are rallying around Ron Paul as if he was the pied piper. Ron stands for the basics of humanity. The basic honorable

    instincts that the politically

    correct have hardened their hearts to. I hear the comments that Ron Paul is “Crazy, Dangerous and unelectable. The youth sense a solidness In Mr Paul that this generation’s parents

    haven’t shown them.

    I am reminded of a friend of mine who was a gymnast. In High school he wooed the crowds with his spectacular flips, twists and etc. Upon entering college on a

    gymnastic scholarship his coach had the class show what they could do My friend proudly performed all his tricks. The coach told him even though he looked fine he needed to go back to

    the basics because he couldn’t do a simple somersault correctly ! And that is how our Nation is today. Too many too cool for school and not enough knowledge for college politicians. No

    “Real” leaders only career politicians fighting for poll positions in a race to destroy the basic framework of Our Great Nation.

    Those who believe in the philosophy of the Declaration of Independence and the framework of the U.S. Constitution as the best way to preserve freedom for all will certainly be on the right

    track. Our Constitution supports the individual and what each can do to better themselves, their family, their church and their community. I believe our goal right now should be less

    government, more responsibility and — with God’s help — a better world. A “Real” Military Strategist would concur that Ron Paul is the man of the hour at this time of our Country. The

    donations from the Military for Ron Paul’s campaign should prove this out. More $$$ donated to him than all the donations from the Military to all the other candidates. (these men have literally put their lives on the line for us)

    Ron is not against Israel as most illiterates proclaim. His declaration is for Israel to do for themselves without our intervention. If they need our help we’ll be there for them. Isn’t that the

    correct way

    for friends to act? Strengthening our Borders is the most sane reasoning that any candidate could proclaim to do. Plus…. Strong families equals strong cities. Strong cities equal strong

    Counties. Strong Counties equal strong States. Strong States equal a strong America ! A strong family takes a husband and a wife and children. Two men or two women can’t make

    children thus no strong family. Need I say more about that? Pardon my expression but it was the “Crusty old Farts” that brought our Country to the pursuit of Freedom. The “Crusty old

    Men” brought forth Our Constitution (in prayer) as a guide for us to continue on with their “Wisdom”. It is totally appalling that this president obama was elected in the first place. He

    stands against

    everything our Constitution stands for. It is my opinion that if he is elected again against all the facts of his illegality, there will be a blood bath within our Nation. Our Country will be

    destroyed from within. Be it as it may it was prophesied that eventually this would happen. Who knew it might be in our generation. With that in mind I am reminded of an old typing

    class assignment. “Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their Country” ! ! ! So let’s vote for the crusty old guy and possibly secure a few more years of Freedom with

    the Providence from above. My vote is going for Ron Paul. Even if it has to be a write in. If this country has decided to continue the debauchery that has been going on for decades so be

    it. I will not in good conscience vote for any of the other candidates. At least Ron Paul’s Record isn’t a broken one ! That’s the gospel of Glenn. Hope you agree. If not be sure that Jesus is

    your Lord and we’ll discuss this if I was wrong later on. Blessings From Me !

    • Dave

      I was there and I just returned home from Myrtle Beach. The seating set for tonight was a thousand and it filled up with people standing along both side walls and all across the back. There were over 1200 people there. This happened with a one day notice from the Ron Paul Campaign.
      Senator Davis was very powerful in his endorsement of Ron Paul.

      SENATOR TOM DAVIS ENSORSES RON PAUL FOR PRESIDENT

      “It’s easy to campaign on lower taxes, less spending and fewer regulations – it’s another thing entirely to stand up for these limited government principles when the entire Washington establishment is aligned against you. Yet for more than three decades Ron Paul has cast thousands of lonely votes in our nation’s capital based on the constitutional principles that this country was founded on – and that the Republican Party has promised to protect. Yet while generations of politicians – including far too many Republicans – were losing their way or caving to the status quo, Ron Paul was standing as a Tea Party of one against a towering wave of red ink.”

      “2012 marks the fifth consecutive year in which the federal government is going to spend well over $1 trillion in money it doesn’t have. Each and every American taxpayer is now on the hook for $135,000 worth of federal debt – and last year’s debt deal adds another $7 trillion in deficit spending over the coming decade. Meanwhile the U.S. Senate hasn’t passed a budget in nearly 1,000 days.”

      “I’m endorsing Ron Paul because enough is enough. Despite this wave of unprecedented government spending, our unemployment rate has remained above 8 percent for the last 34 months and 146.4 million Americans – one out of every two people in this country – are now classified as poor or low-income.”

      “Government activism and government intervention clearly hasn’t fixed our economy – which is why the Republican Party needs a nominee who isn’t wedded to that failed approach. We won’t chart a path to fiscal solvency or victory in November by running toward the failed ideas of the left – we will achieve those victories by returning to the principles that the Republican Party once stood for.”

      “That is why I am proud to endorse Ron Paul for president.”

      “Ron Paul’s record matches his rhetoric, his fiscal plan matches the fiscal challenges that our nation is facing and his movement represents the taxpayers whose interests have been ignored in the political process for far too long.”

      “I’m also endorsing him because unlike what the pundits have led you to believe, he is the candidate who gives the Republican Party the best chance to beat Barack Obama in November.”

      “We have a choice: We can keep electing candidates who talk about change only during political campaigns as a way to get elected, or we can finally elect a candidate who will walk the walk and make that change a reality – restoring our bottom line, our individual liberties and our national pride in the process.”

    • Jarrett

      Are we as republicans really as stupid as we look right now,, Ron paul is a social liberal and we have enough of the eveything is ok attitude in our country and if ytou dig deep enough you will see that this sorry attitude is what is killing our economy.. We need a true conservative to get this country back on track and away form the BS that seems to take up sop much of our time and resources!!

    • Martin Ridens

      The difficult thing for many to realize is if you want freedom for yourself you must grant it to everyone else. In order to keep it we must give it away. If you want the federal government to tell others what to do you give it the authority to tell you what to do. No thanks.

    • Martin Ridens

      Ron Paul 2012 – The R3volution

    • Hank is back

      Meant to vote you one up. Sorry.

    • Dale

      You are right, It seams like people depend to much on the main stream media for their information and are to sorry to do a little reaserch. They had better quit sitting on there head, Like they did in the last election. IF THEY DON”T A BUSINESS AS USUAL PRESIDENT THEY BETTER WAKE UP AND DO SOME RESEARCH.

  • http://adplattypus.blogspot.com Anthony Platt

    I’m not quite sure how to make this any clearer to the Paul bashers but here goes: the news media it is true, is socially Marxist, but at their core they are corporatist plutocrats. They protect money and other interests in the power structure from AIPAC to Boeing first. Fox is not conservative or freedom-loving. It cares about Goldman Sachs’ and Lockheed’s bottom line. It is right wing statist vis a vis NBC which is left wing statist. They don’t care about you, not even a little bit. The structural biases are built in and polluting your mind. They only care about them. Ron Paul is a hero. Look at the man’s record, an incorruptible statesman of sheer integrity. Read Chomsky’s “Manufacturing Consent” or Hayek’s “The Road To Serfdom”, but please stop watching Fox. They are committed liars and criminals. They are destroying the nation and you are letting them as they get over on you and do it through your blind accession. Did you forget already that they just lied you into three senseless wars? They have been telling you social decline is ascent for a century now! Turn off your TV. Do some independent research, please. They’re the ones robbing you through bailouts and tricking you! Stop watching Fox.

    • Martin Ridens

      Seems to me they were all statists.

    • emerutil

      Ok, wise guy. Just who would you suggest??

  • Peggy Sparks

    If Ron Paul does not get the nomination I will vote third party for Gary Johnson!!!!!!!! I WILL NOT VOTE FOR MITT, NEWT,RICK,JON,OR RICK

    • dennodog

      That’s just a vote for obama.

    • Carmelo Junior

      Ron Paul is a nazi

    • Roy

      ARE YOU DAFT? HE IS THE ONLY CONSTITUTIONALIST IN THE RACE!!!

    • Ray

      And the only one other than Romney that has no problem with same sex marriage, believes it ok for Iran to have the nuclear bomb, is not for Israel and the list goes on. You might as well vote for a jackass, your vote won’t be worth much anyway.

    • Luis R Vazquez

      Don’t you guys, followers of the CONSTITUTIONALIST Ron Paul, remember that Barak Hussein Obama was also a Constitutional Law Professor In Harvad or Columbia University?
      You all are easy prey or you are …No, I better don’t say it.

    • Bill

      You people are so stupid that is what got OB IN Office to start with

    • Luis R Vazquez

      Exactly what I think of this bunch.

    • emerutil

      Huh?

    • Rick Conn

      You can vote for whom you wish, its a free country. But if you vote for anything other than Republican (no matter who they pick) whether you like them or not, you will be electing obummer. A third party ticket will not split the Dumocrat ticket, it will split the Republican ticket assuring obummer another term. Anyone voteing other than Republican is killing America, might as well grab your shovel and throw in the dirt. America nor our Constitution can not stand another four years of obummer, his czars, and his cronies in Congress. You better HOLD YOUR NOSE AND VOTE REPUBLICAN or you will be electing obummer.

    • grossyi

      I am done holding my nose and voting for the Republican lesser of two evils. It got me bailouts, inflation, Homeland Security, presription drug plan and multiple wars. Obama is horrible but the Republicans are no different. Who’s hiding their head in the sand? Restore the Republic!!! My votre is for Ron Paul.

    • RonT

      And if Paul doesn’t win the nomination you will sit the next election out? How Democrat brainwashed are you! You will, out of selfish reasoning,vote Obama in to spite the Republican Candidate! Why don’t you just vote for Obama! It take 1480 delegate votes to get the nomination, so far Paul has 15. If Paul is the candidate I will vote for him! if Romney is the candidate I’ll vote for him. there is no way I want Obama for another nation killing term! I don’t care who the Republican candidate is; I’m voting for them! To you I say; thanks for reelecting Obama, the consequence of your selfishness is the death of this nation!

    • deuce

      That’s good…vote third party and secure a win for Obama! Good stratigy!

    • Swede

      Either my way or watch the country go to hell. Great attitude! You are putting the same faith in Paul as the masses did with Obama. If you do what you say your country will be lost forever.

    • Roy

      The difference between Obomination and Ron Paul is voting record. Look at Ron Paul’s voting record in congress. Always consistant! Always for the people! I think we can trust Ron Paul to try and do the things he promises based on his record.

    • Bill

      N

    • Mary A

      Peggy, are you so arrogant that you want 0 for another 4 years so he can totally bring us down as a nation? Then go ahead and vote 3rd party and suffer the consequences. I would only like to vote for Rick Perry but I will vote for the nominee even if I don’t like him only to get rid of 0.

    • Linda F. from Texas

      AGREE WHOLEHEARTEDLY…………

    • Connie

      Well, thanks to people like you we might get stuck with Obama again another four years.
      Good thinking Peggy, you are realy a great thinker.

  • Maxine

    I belong to the tea party and Ron Paul is the only one to fix this country the rest of you tea party cry babys take your ball and go home

    • CE

      It is this stupidity that gave us Angle and O’Donnell which left the Senate in the Dems hands and the Republican House totally unable to achieve the change that we all wanted after 2010. Wake up people, a vote for Paul or a vote for a Third Party candidate is a vote for four more years of the Obamination and most likely also continuing Dem control of the Senate.

      We MUST choose the candidates who are most electable if we are to save our Country from four more years of Socialism.

  • Christopher Barnes

    Our country is very ill and is in need of an economic Dr. Representative Ron Paul is the Dr. that can cure the ills of this great nation. His phylosophies are sound, about the military and about the economy. He is more economicly literate than all of the other candidates. If we nominate just another political pretty face or a person that has better speaking ability than the others then we have just preserved the “statis quo’ and just doomed our nation to second rate economic statis and given the freedoms that we have previously enjoyed to history. We will fall into a totalitarian state and economic collapse. 2012 is the tipping point for the country. It is now or never people. No more lying politicions, only Ron Paul.

    • Ed

      Actually, Dr. Paul’s foreign policy is a subtle stroke of genius, should the feces really hit the propeller- Our sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters in the military will be of immeasurably more value to we, the American people, here at home than half a world away when we really need them…

    • Mary A

      No man or group can change or make this Nation better except God. If we do things God way He will bless this land again.
      Ps 75:5-7 Do not lift up your horn on high; do not speak with insolent pride. For not from the east, nor from the west, nor from the desert comes exaltation; But God is the Judge; He puts down one and exalts another.

    • Hank is back

      So God doesn’t use people, real, living, breathing people to bring about His will?

    • emerutil

      He certainly does! Often with disastrous results! His plans are not always in our best interests. Only His will is important to him. (I dismiss “for God so loved the world…)

    • Roy

      Any time I hear someone say “put it in gods hands” I am reminded of the movie Where the Red Fern Grows when the boy who wants a hounddog says he has been praying for one and god is not answering and he is told that he needs to meet god half way. God showed him where the dogs were now it is up to him to get one. Ron Paul is the only HONEST candidate who’s record speaks for its self. Ron Paul 2012!

  • Eddie B

    Jerk!

  • Annie

    OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Clayton Wellman

    I still like Sarah Palin, but will vote for anyone but –o–. I can’t even type that name.

    • emerutil

      Palin is not running. Neither is Jefferson!

  • Gordon Jensen

    The only value in this endorsement would be to derail Romney in SC and thereby putting FL in question. Ron Paul does not have a snowball’s chance in hell of winning the national election against Obama.

    • gramjude

      The debate between Paul and O would be a
      disaster. Paul cannot debate coherently..
      I will let go of his so called policy’s,
      that is a whole other story. Just the
      fact that this man cannot hear, rambles on
      when asked a question coupled with his age
      would make the people of this nation who have not been in tuned until the debates,
      would have a field day with this Republican
      Candidate if nominated. This is not a laughing matter anymore.
      Romney cannot debate, he sounds like McCain
      all over again (Iwonderwhy)- and lets just forget the other candidates on stage as well.
      The only one that would make mincemeat out of BO is Gingrich, to bad he is just another progressive in a Red Suit.

    • Roy

      I think you better take another look at the polls putting every republican candidate against Obomination. The ONLY one who stands a chance is Ron Paul. In fact, he Ties with Obomination in almost every poll!

    • Dalek

      I looked up the recent polls for Ron Paul against Obama. He only gets more of the independant vote. That’s not the same thing. It doesn’t mean Ron Paul would win for sure.

      Does anyone remember Ross Perot? Remember his VP and the hearing aid incident? Do we really want to lock Ron Paul in then have him screw up that bad? Keep in mind, once he is selected, we are stuck with him. If he screws up, no matter what he screws up on, then we are stuck with Obama and we get to eat sandwiches mades out of stuff that comes out the back of a cow.

      Honestly, I agree with a LOT of what Ron Paul says. Thing is, I’m not sure I could vote for him. That said, I don’t really like any of the ones running so far. I didn’t last time either. I held my nose and voted for McCain. It smelled like that stuff we may end up eating. I can see it coming. The Republicans are going to screw this up and we are going to pay a HUGE price for it. Repubs just keep negotating and being on the wrong side. If you know something is not right, STAND UP AND DON”T GIVE IN! Repubs keep giving in and can’t understand why we want them out too.

    • pat78

      The reason Republicans (RINO’s) have difficulties at times is because they’ve sold out to the commies also, so when the commies want someone like Obama to win, the RINO must back down. Ron Paul doesn’t have that problem. He owes nothing to no one. He gives freely to We the People!

    • Martin Ridens

      BS

    • Robert

      You obviously do not know that Ron Paul gets more independent votes and better independent support in the polls then all the other republican candidates, except for Romney.

    • mes

      so lets split those indepentant votes and republican votes between Paul and who ever is in the final run….who wins…..obama wins…its a no brainer….just like when McCain ran…with the votes Paul took away as a third party…gave it to obama…

    • Pat

      Ron Paul is getting a lot of support from the young ones who voted 2 to 1 for Obama in 2008 and are reaping the pains of that mistake now. They voted for Obama because he was “cool”, now they want someone with brains and common sense to lead them, like the kindly old grandfather who most likely told them that their faith in Obama was a mistake…

    • Martha

      Cannot believe the tea party leader is endorsing Paul. What a disappointment. As was said, he has no chance of beating Obamma and would be terrible in debate. His style not even such as to conduct foreign policy.
      Our main concern should be to unseat Obamma.
      While agreeing with most tea party ideals, this makes me an estranged supporter.

    • emerutil

      I totally agree. Do not know why you are getting so much negative response!

      9/11 was an inside job!

    • Hank is back

      Not quite.

      Our government funded BIN LADEN, helped Al Qaeda during the Balkans episode, refused to shoot Osama THREE TIMES when he was in our cross hairs, were ten minutes too late bombing Tora Bora (where he was hiding), prevented highly skilled mercenaries from going after him, and took ten years to find the man, when with our CIA, our military, the reward on his head, our foreign aid (bribery) to Pakistan, etc., and God knows what else, we should have been able to do it in six months.

      Not to mention the CIA and the FBI each had a file on Mohammed Atta, and if they had been allowed by Bush and Clinton to access each other’s files, they would have detained him and foiled the attacks.

      With all this, how can you NOT say that our ‘benign’ government is not just as culpable as the hijackers?

      9/11 was NOT an inside job, but it might as well have been.

    • Roy

      I can not argue with your facts. You are obviously intelegent and well read. But there are way too many unanswered questions about the way the structures came down looking like a controled demolition when fire has never brought a steel structure down. There is much, much evedence that points to a compartmental government conspieracy. Just my belief. Sorry for the degression from the topic. :-)

      Why is it so hard for you people to believe that their are people who want to kill Americans.

      mabye its only because he understand that only IDIOTS think that Ron Paul is a “nut job” Only Idiots would believe the mainstream media where this BS is coming from.

    • Roy

      So, you think sending our country into bankrupsy through war spending is the answer? WAKE UP! Our country is in DEEP FINANCIAL STRAIGHTS! If we get into another war, one that is going to bring in China and Russia against us, our country is going to collapse the way the Soviet Union did. At least, if Ron Paul gets into office we stand a chance. We have no chance with these warmongering candidates. Our current empiristic policies will be the fall of our nation.

    • tess

      our country is in bankruptcy because the dems controlled the entire government for over 2 years and all obama’s policies were faiures,, yes, the wars have cost billions, but nothing compared to all the entitlements obama has 45% of the people on and and giving size and governing control to agencys. take a harder look at the spending in D.C. and the regulations and no balanced budget and it will all be clearer.

    • Hank is back

      Bush actually started a lot of that, lady. Obama has made it worse for sure, but the dems are just part of the problem. The repubs are the other part.

    • awakenow

      Tess, yes, Obama has spent like crazy. We all get that. But, please understand that we were already deeply in debt when Bush Jr. left office … about 10 TRILLION.

      The Medicare Prescription Drug Plan was a Republican idea and was passed under Bush Jr. Trillions of dollars that was added to the debt.

      And, the wars and a massive, wasteful, bloated Defense Budget along with 10 years of
      NEVER ENDING, UNCONSTITUTIONAL and UNDECLARED wars have added 1 TRILLION in debt each and every year.

      What Ron Paul knows is that our UNFUNDED LIABILITIES AND OBLIGATIONS for entitlement programs like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid are well over 100 TRILLION. And that figure is in addition to the nearly 16 TRILLION in debt that we keep hearing about every single day.

      Ron Paul understands how bad our economic situation really is and what needs to be done about it. He has a plan to do what MUST be done in order to start digging us out of the hole we are in and to avoid a complete economic collapse.

      His plan is CUT THE GOVERNMENT DOWN by eliminating FIVE federal departments. NO other candidate is talking about doing anything close to this and they won’t. Why?

      Because they all love Big Government. They BELIEVE in Big Government and they will keep on doing whatever it takes to KEEP Big Government in place.

      This is why the head of the South Carolina Tea Party endorses Ron Paul and so should every other Tea Party that chooses to endorse a candidate.

      The Tea Party began as a way to try to stop the insane spending and Big Government in Washington and the states.

      And, Ron Paul is the father of the Tea Party. The very first Tea Party rally, by Ron Paul and his supporters, was in December of 2007 … at least a year before any other Tea Party rally happened.

      Not gullibility, sir! Plain evil. Just plain evil in the hearts of a majority of the voter population made it possible for the wanna-be Anti-Christ to obtain the highest office in our land.

  • N Huffman

    Ron Paul will never get elected because Obama will win. If Ron Paul would get elected, you will be the crybabies for your absurdiies. If Mitt Romney or Ron Paul get elcted, I will sit out the presidential portion of the election as I did in 2oo8. True conservatives will not just vote for anyone. When OObama looks into the Romney mirror he sees a carbon copy of himself. When he looks into the Paul mirror, he see and anarchist. Obama must be gleeful happy to see one of those two as his opponent. It is amazing that a party dominated by the conservatives cannot choose a true conservative. Keep it up and the party will die in less than twelve years.

    • Ed

      This is due to a genetic constraint that dictates that conservatives bring knives and pea shooters and band aids to a firefight in the ICU…

    • emerutil

      Oh, ‘cm on. What choices did we have?

  • Dixie Doodle

    Now that everyone has gotten the venom out of his or her system, it’s time to let reality take charge. The only way we can be assured of a candidate that can truly beat the insanity we now have in the White House is to band together and pray to God to send us the right person. Prayer works in many mysterous ways so let’s leave it in His hands. Let’s come together and pray together.

    • gramjude

      Well it certainly is not Paul!

    • Martin Ridens

      Try praying on it

    • tess

      I agree PRAYER IS POWERFUL.. and lets pray that those who are misguided will find a clearer picture. the GOP candidate has to be a well rounded, intelligent, informed , honest and trustworthy person.. NOT PERFECT,… nothing on this earth is perfect. But we cannot have a candidate who will leave us defenseless, not with IRAN developing nuclear capabilities.

    • Mary A

      Dixie, that is the best suggestion yet but how many people know how to pray?

    • Dixie Doodle

      Thanks Mary. Maybe some will learn by trying this method. I have always remembeered what my grandmother told me many years ago as a child “ask and ye shall receive.” I believed it them and continue to believe it now.

    • emerutil

      You naively assume God will act favorably in answering prayers. He has said NO to me so often, I do not bother to pray anymore.

    • Dixie Doodle

      emerutil, you have something VERY WRONG in your life. I feel sorry for you.

  • Servant

      I kinda like the idea of Ron Paul/ Jessi Ventura for the ticket. If Jessi Ventura is the VP, nobody will even think to assasinate Ron Paul because that would put Jessi Ventura in the drivers seat. :-)

  • http://att.com julie Metzler

    No No No Have people in South Carolina been listening to the crazy talk on Ron Paul.
    I am a Tea Party Member but I would never vote for a person like Ron Paul. He does not know what he is talking about. I think is unstable.

  • http://adplattypus.blogspot.com Anthony Platt

    A) Paul never claimed he didn’t write any of the newsletters. He only claimed he didn’t write the individual incendiary lines the corrupt establishment has been trying to tear him down for. Given his track record of absolute moral probity, the dozens of people involved in their publication, and no verifiable evidence of his bigotry or willingness to use such language, he more than merits the benefit of the doubt.
    B) Just Sayin’, you seem to be doing a lot more than “just sayin’”. You seem to have a very explicit agenda, tinged with a truckload of vitriol and prejudice. For someone so adamantly and self-righteously opposed to the slander and ad-hominem attacks and propaganda and lunacy of the Paulbots, you seem to engage in plenty of these behaviors all by yourself.

  • Robert

    Say what you like about Ron Paul, but you have to admit he is the only one talking about and plans to cut spending. 1 trillion in the first year! The national debt IS the biggest threat to our national security.

    • tess

      INCORRECT,, all the candidates have plans to make cuts.. do you think this can be done in a year??? BE REALISTIC

    • Hank is back

      Give me the link to their budget plans.

      A lot of talk, these ‘other candidates’ you refer to.

      Huntsman is dropping out but I hope he does not endorse Ron Paul.

    • Hank is back

  • Carol Fryer

    Now you will find out which tea party is real and which has been hijacked by the GOP and Faux. The one that endorses Ron Paul may be the real deal, but still be very leery. When someone with the GOP does something nice to your face, they have someone sneaking up behind your back with a knife.

  • tymtrvlr

    Didn’t I see where ron paul wanted to let the illegals stay here in the U.S. to suck the welfare system dry, so he could raise our taxes, so the illegal parasites can suck our welfare system dry so he could raise our taxes so the parasites will have something to suck dry so he can raise our taxes for the parasites to suck us completely dry and rob us while at work. I’m only saying, they have proven themselves up standing mexican citizens sucking our system dry, NO!!!! to ron paul, he is an idiot.

    • Roy

      I think you need to get your facts straight. Ron Paul has not once voted for a tax hike! He also wants to bring our troops home to strengthen our borders. Do some reading.

    • http://PatriotUpdate Don j.

      No, Ron Paul said no such thing. He actually said that illegals have no right to SS, free medical, or free education.It would be difficult to “round them up”, but not impossible to reduce their numbers by attrition.

  • Jean

    I say we conmbine Romney and Ron Paul for VP. Let Paul work on domestic spending cuts and audit the FED…then let Romney handle the restoration of our Foreign policy and rebuild our Military(Ron Paul favors a strong Military) This would sure be a ticket to beat Obama!! Paul will bring the young and the independants, and Romney will get the conservative vote! Its a sure WIN-WIN!
    My preference is Rick Santorum and I like Newt, but neither can beat Obama……

    • Martin Ridens

      Romney wouldn’t want Ron Paul anywhere near his White House.

    • Jean

      Romney needs the young vote and the independents. The conservatives have where else to go.

  • Cameron

    Jim DeMint is endorsing Ron Paul. The former head of the Bin Laden unit in the CIA is endorsing Ron Paul. These are big endorsements. Anybody who doesnt endorse him has never actually looked at his conservative record. He has never voted to raise taxes. Get used to him, he is around to 2016 as our president!!!

    • ed

      great record been in congress for what 26 yrs and he has had a total of 2 bills passed to busy writing his viral papers to be bothered by actually doing what he was sent to DC to do but yet he can lead the country he couldnt run this country any better than he has his own job in DC grade F for leadership grade A for BS

    • Roy

      Your logic is a fail! Ron Paul does not get bills passed because the rest of congress is bought and paid for by big business and Ron Paul’s bills take away from big business so the rest of congress wont vote for them. The problem is not with Ron Paul’s leadership, it is with a corrupt congress!

    • Dave

      Criticizing Ron Paul for not passing bills in Congress is like criticizing a nun in a whore house for not turning tricks. He was there to stop the “whoring,” not become one.

    • Bill

      Stupid is as stupid does

    • Martin Ridens

      I don’t think Jim DeMint is endorsing anyone. But for Ed and anyone else out there here is the legislation Ron Paul has proposed:

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_legislation_sponsored_by_Ron_Paul

      Hmm, lowering taxes, smaller government, sound money, no wonder none of that crazy stuff passed.

  • rlfa17

    Forget the usual media, but those bastions of conservatism on the airwaves that we (Beck, Levin, Limbaugh, Hannity, etc) all share the same opinion of Rep. Paul. His concept on foreign policy is a disaster waiting to happen. Neither America or the world can afford such lunacy.

    • awakenow

  • keith

    Actually, as I have said for a while now, and all polls supoort it, go back to when Ron Paul first started running for President and move forward from there. He has consistently built a base over the years, starting out in single digits in his first run, moving into the teens kn his last run, and now he is moving into the 20% range. Make no mistske folks, the vast majority of people who support Ron Paul will not vote for Romney for any reason. Some may vote for Santorum. The rest are out of consideration as well. If Ron Paulor Rick Santorum is not the nominee, I will vote for Gary Johnson becsuse I know none of the others are going to do anything differently than Obama, except a little eye candy that will cost us another small fortune.

    • tess

      if you vote that way, you are casting a vote for obama.. use logic,, for our nation to survive, we must support the GOP candidate, and if we are unhappy with him, we elect someone else in 4 years.. at least all the GOP CANDIDATES are AMERICAN PATRIOTS.

    • Hank is back

      What logical axiom are you using?

      The one that says ‘if you trust a mainstream republican, he won’t stab you in the back’?

      That worked real good with Bush Senior, Bush Junior, and McCain.

      Take your ‘logic’ and shove it!

    • awakenow

    In all of my 64 years of life, this Republican group is tearing the Party apart ! I was born raised and lived in Charleston until the end of 1986 when I moved to Florida for business reasons and still have 3 sisters and their families and numerous cousins who still live there plus good friends ! If we split up the Rpublican Vote, Barack Obama will be re elected and this is unacceptable. Ron Paul is too old to take office and be effective as this is a taxing job 24 hours a day ! Look at how much Obummer has aged in three years and Paul would probably become ineffective and then we would have a V.P. ; this in the event that he were to win, a slim chance of this ! Do not for the Republican Ticket to be successful split the votes up and stand behind whomever is chosen as the Republican CANDIDATE AND UNITE OURSELVES ! BRING BACK THE USE OF OUR CONSTITUTION AND ALL OF THE AMENDMENTS EXCEPT FOR OBAMACARE. STOP THE SPENDING, TIGHTEN OUR BELTS AND NO EXECUTIVE ORDERS AND Chicago Style Gang activity ! Bring our nation back to where it belongs and save our country ! Back the Candidate chosen and deal with the small issues as they come up with strong leadership in Congress !

    • Martin Ridens

      Ron Paul takes regular 3 mile walks and 15 mile bike rides. He complains the rigors of this campaign are difficult because he doesn’t get as much exercise as he usually does. He’s probably healthier than either of us.

    • tess

      a DR. who wants to legalize drugs??

    • Martin Ridens

      Believing the federal government has no authority to make them illegal for the entire nation is a completely different thing.

    • emerutil

      How could that possibly be a bad thing? Look at Prohibition. Federal drug laws are just as stupid, and just as destructive. Let people do whatever their needs require!

  • tess

    Huntsman did just drop out and ENDORSED M. ROMNEY.. As far as Ron Paul is concerned, yes he does support the constitution, HOWEVER, do you people NOT SEE, he will leave this country defenseless? and whether you like it or not.,, we cannot be isolationists and survive,, WE can make it more economically inviting to get business to return to our REPUBLIC. Think and regard your votes as more precious than usual, if Paul splits the ticket , obama will be re-elected.

    • Martin Ridens

      You have been lied to if that is what you believe about Ron Paul. The question to ask is why would someone lie to you like that.

    • tess

      No one has lied to me about R.Paul, i have listened to every debate,, i have drawn my conclusions from his remarks..

    • Martin Ridens

      So, which remarks lead you to believe he would leave this country defenseless and be specific please. An actual quote will work.

    • Hank is back

      So you didn’t watch the network spin that follows every debate?

      BS!

    • Roy

      Your logis is a fail. Ron Paul believes in the armed forces. He just does not believe in our unconstitutional wars for oil. If he was anti military strength, then why does he recieve more support from our armed forces then all the other candidates combined?

    • tess

      where did you get those facts??the military does not support PAUL.

    • Dave

      He is almost the only candidate for President in 2012 who actually served his country.

      He was a flight surgeon during Vietnam.

      Ron Paul’s popularity is so high among U.S. service members that the Texas
       Congressman’s presidential campaign has received more money from U.S.
      soldiers than any other candidate in the 2012 presidential race.
       http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I8NhRPo0WAo&feature=channel_video_title

      He voted against the Iraq War and warned us against going forward with
      an undeclared war.“Let it not be said that no one cared, that
      no one objected once it´s realized that our liberty and wealth are in
      Jeopardy” July 10th, 2003

      He voted against the unconstitutional (4th Amendment and others) and un-patriotic misnomered so called “Patriot Act”. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WhxJ1XUGLR0&feature=channel_video_title

      He supports a non-interventionist foreign policy yet a strong defense

    • Roy

      Google Military backs Ron Paul, and you will get your answer. The Military contributes more $ to the Ron Paul campaign then any of the other candidates combines. FACT!

  • keith

    @Mes: You blatantly violated that ancient proverb that states ” It is best to remain silent and be thought the fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.” Ron Paul did not run third party in 2008. Of the ones who did, their miniscule numbers of votes would have made absolutely no difference in the outcome of the election. See this:

    http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2008/president/us/obama_vs_mccain_with_barr_nader-957.html

  • keith

    @Covert: I firmly believe the GOP needs to go ghe way of the WHIG party. No, I will not vote for anyone other than Paul or Santorum on the GOP ticket. I have cast my vote for years only to see absolutely nothng change, no matter who is elected. If we don’t get someone in thefe with a proven record of actually voting to get spending under control, we are doomed. Ron Paul is the only csndidate eith that unblemished record.

  • keith

    When another candidate challenged Ron Paul on his health, he countered with a challenge to a mountain bike ride. None of them took him up on it.

  • nvrpc

    Ron Paul will not be the one for the republicans and if he is, you’ll get Obama for four more years guaranteed.

    Obama will rip him a new AH the first day he debates him and Ron will look like a fool. Maybe that’s the name of a new series, Fool’s Gone Wild

    • Roy

  • keith

    @Tess: Which of those csndidates has a record of either making hard cuts or voting for cuts? The only one is Ron Paul. ALL of the others use the standard DC smoke and mirrors ploy of cutting x dollars over 10 years which only amounts to promising to reduce future spending, which never happens as none of them will be in office in ten years, rather than making hard cuts now. In essence you are saying status quo is fine with you.

    • tess

      aLL THE CANDIDATES HAVE VOTED AGAINST TAX ISSUES DURING THEIR TIME IN congress or as govenor.. this mess cannot be done in a year.. you are not realistic in thinking Paul can do all this,, he will have a congress to work with.. and Paul is for legalizing ALL DRUGS.. not just marijuana. NO THE STATUS QUO IS NOT FINE WITH ME.. I DO NOT WANT A SOCIALIST RUNNING OUR COUNTRY that many of our military died for. I do not think Paul represents the tea party , he represents the liberal and independents.

    • Roy

      Get your facts straight. Ron Paul says that the federal government has no business telling us what we can do in our own homes. He belives the STATES have the right to decide on the drug issues. He is not for making them legal, just for getting the FEDERAL government out of the PEOPLES business. Let the people decide at the state level.

    • Roy

      I think you need to look at the state of our constitution. We are losing constitutional guarenteed freedoms at an alarming rate thanks to the politics we have been under. Ron Paul is the ONLY CONSTITUTIONALIST candidate!

  • keith

    If Ron Paul is not the nominee we will have Obama for four more years.

    • tess

      obama will be re-elected because R.Paul will not get the GOP candidacy and then independents , liberatarians will toss their votes to the wind and that will give obama the shoo-in he needs. I was not really in favor of JOHN MCCAIN,, but after hearing obama speak, i knew i could not vote for him. SO I SUPPORTED SOMEONE WHO WAS A PATRIOT AND SUPPORTED THE CONSTITUTION.

  • keith

    @Tess: False statement. He wants to relax federal laws against marijuana so states can make the decision. You know, the tenth amendmemt to the constitution.

  • Donna

    Conservatives need to unify behind the candidate who will win in our presidential election. A third party candidate would divide conservatives and essentially offer the platter to the liberals.

    Dear Glenn says
    Your satements are the only ones that make
    any sense to me. Any of the others that support Dr.Paul are in the same category, just not expressed as well. Most of the
    others are just talk that mean nothing. Thank you for your comments and I, for one,
    hope this will enlighten some of the others
    to what Dr. Paul really is and stands for.
    Dr. Paul for President!

  • Jack Thompson

    Unfortunately, the powers that be will never let someone as principled as Dr. Paul ever get elected. They will not go at him directly but I have a feeling there will never be a 2012 presidential election. The drums of war are no longer faint but are getting louder by the day. This is just a universally larger concept of the shell game. If it looks as if Dr. Paul has a very good chance of winning one that can not be undone by the slight manipulation of vote counts the great distraction of WAR will be set in motion. They will never let someone who can not be controlled, can not be bought and always tells the truth have the keys to the house. They would rather burn the house down and take a chance at building something from the ashes than ever let him take the helm. Similar to what the Mob does with a business after they have taken it over and financially run it into the ground. They burn it down and take the insurance money and move on to the next one. God Bless and God Bless (I don’t believe in luck).
    P.S. – Everyone must pay very very close attention from here on out.

  • Tim Lucas

    No one can stop you from supporting Ron Paul nor voting for him but it certainly is a waste. The other thing that gets me besides that foot and mouth thing is the fact he has passed only one bill in twenty years. One of these six will be the choice and the people better be behind that one or Obama will punish this country another 4 years if that’s possible. Newt is alittle short to be president but Romney is a liberal acting like a republican. Rick would be fine but he’ll never get the support. It will be Newt or Nitt. As long as it isn’t Obama I really don’t care. Anyone is better than Obama.

    • Devil Dog, USMC DAV

      Right now, I’ll take SANTORUM over any one of these canditates. He’s honest, moral, and has our security and economy, with a strong message. Listen to him people, and youWILL learn something. Even though the media does not give him much reference, the libs are totally afraid of him. Listen to his message, even though th msm shoves him aside. Just remember, no baggage, and a loving family behind him, along with the evangelicals.

    • nmgene

      Santorum is already a traitor by signing every gun control bill to cross his desk. Paul will get us attacked by whatever phsycho dictator who decides to attack us first then the rest will follow as we wont have a military left to stop them. Romney is a lib has always been a lib and will always be a lib!!!!!!! Newt is the only one left who will fix our country!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Christian Archer

      If Newt Gingrich is the only one left in your opinion, then God help us. He the insider Washington D.C. beltway type who has no problems rubbing shoulders with the New World Order types. Use your search engine and key-in: Newt Gingrich and third wave or Newt Gingrich and Alvin Toffler. Hopefully you’ll see that Newt Gingrich is a socialist trying to disguise himself as a conservative. It looks like he’s been successful because he’s deceived you.

    • http://AOL Lenore

      Excuse me, but have you even READ the “The Third Wave” by Toffler? I Have! No where does it mention Newt Ginrich! Try reading “The Nrw World Order” by Joseph Stumph. It might give you more insight into the crooked world of Politics and Socialism. People like the CIA, Rockerfellers, Bilderbergers, World bankers and how the President is just a FIGUREHEAD, PRE-PICKED even before the people vote! Romney & Obama are one & the same in their agendas, and Ron Paul is only 50% right. The rest he is a “Nutcase!”

    • Johnnygard

      You can believe what you want, but I KNOW AND REMEMBER what Newt’s political record is and it’s better than the record of ANY OTHER CANDIDATE. Believe what they do, not what is said about them.

    • mexseiko

    • SC Gal

      NEWT IS NOT A SOCIALIST! You are confused with Obama! Newt is an American-loving, patriotic conservative. Romney is so similar to Obama that I would vote for Ron Paul before I would vote for Mitt-Obama! Period.

    • Millicent

      Newt Gingrich is the only one who can take Obama down. He is the real Conservative in the pack. Ron Paul is garbage and a traitor to America. Every time this pile of offal opens his mouth he spews antiAmerican rhetoric. He will go down in history among the likes of Benedict Arnold.

      Knowledge of what goes on in the CFR is hidden from the non members. Membership fees are $250,000 and up. Until you gain membership you are not privy to most information.

Maybe someone has a location you can go to and actually get inside but I would think that would only be a member.

      Here’s a link to an article that lays out Newt’s overall record:

      http://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/politics/2396-newt-gingrich-the-establishments-conservative?showall=1

      Let’s not let our selective memory filter out the significant negatives associated with this candidate.

      My take is that he is an opportunist of a very high order. Yes, he did some things that were good in his stint as Speaker of the House in the 90′s, but he also has played, and continued to play, footsies with the internationalists and the supporters of big government.

    • Pam

Lets not waste it and have to explain to our children and grandchildren how the land of the FREE and the home of the BRAVE became the land of Stalin, and Mao and Chavez! Focus on the Prize and take back our country! God bless all of you and God Bless America!

    • cmvbih

      Sorry, William, but right now it IS about the GOP race. We need to pick the best candidate, theone who will truly follow the Constitution, and not one who just pays our Constitution lip service.
      That GOP candidate IS Ron Paul.
      Ron Paul will also take the youth vote and indy vote AWAY FROM Obama – those are the two groups that won it for BO in 2008.
      Liberty, Prosperity and our Constitution are what I’m voting for this time around.

    • Johnnygard

      cmv, By what miracle do you figure Ron Paul will be able to do ANYTHING? No accomplishments in over 20 years in Congress, and now he is going to become a LEADER overnight?

    • SC Gal

      Just remember, if you vote for Romney, you might as well be voting for Obama. Just because the News Media is cramming Mittens down our throats, doesn’t mean we have to vote for him. He’s like McCain, one step from the left.

      RomneyCare = ObamaCare

      Let’s NEWTralize Obama & send him packing. GINGRICH 2012

      Mr Cook I was just telling my wife this morning by the time we in Kentucky get to vote for who will run for President of the Republican party, well let’s just say it’s over with and we are stuck with one person, like it or not I’m tired of this game and would like to to see all states votes on the same day for are next Republican canidate, yes this a game for the media who will ram shot their idea’s on to the Conservatives people of this great Nation. Men of money who form these Super Pack’s to help their man like Mitt Romney get elected. Today it is big money that will get a canidate elected into the oval office because of the elites who run Washington D.C. they tell us Mitt Romney is the only man who can beat Obama. We see these men spend million’s to get a job that pay’s $400.000 a year, to sit in that chair in the oval office as the most powerful man on earth. William you and I both know with out having money we cannot run for President of America, and because of this we are paying a heavy price for who is running this country right now, and that person is Barack Obama.

    • DebbyL

      i agree. All these endorsements really mean nothing. we need to focus on Obama.

    • Linda

      What many people do not recognize is that the Democrats and Republicans are just two heads on the same beast. Don’t you wonder why so many issues are never resolved? Most politicians are working for the same “boss”, regardless of party. The only candidate who has not been bought by these evil bosses is Ron Paul. That is why he has had so much trouble getting fair coverage- he has been marginalized by these cretans- because he opposes their evil agenda, which is good for them, but horrible for Americans. They have been brainwashing Americans for decades- so much so, that many Americans believe their garbage. These same cretans also own the media in great part- so they have been controlling what we see, hear, think. The thing that they are now trying to control- but have not been successful- is the internet. Mitt, Newt, and the two Ricks all have track records which PROVE that they are OWNED. Ron Paul is the only one who isn’t. That is why he is marginalized by the media- controlling what people think of him. Take the time to really educate yourself on every one of these candidates, and you’ll see what I’m saying is true. If you don’t, you’re only voting the way that the hidden powers with the wicked hidden agenda want you to. I guarantee that you will be sorry, just like many who voted for Obama are sorry, because HE is cut from the exact same mold.

    • Millicent

      And at the top of the list is lowlife pile of trash Ron Paul.

    • GaBullDog067

      Only a complete moron would try to talk trash on Ron Paul. Paul has fought for our liberty for 30 years and is also a war vet. I think its obvious that YOU are the “low-life piece of trash’. The only reason Paul has past so few bills is because 99% of D.C. is owned by corporate special interest and the MIC. Paul predicted the real estae crash and much more when the rest bold face lied to us. ONE voice remains true and that’s RON PAUL.

      i just noticed that all anti Paul remarks are blocked as low response, is this site pulling for Paul. I am a tea party backer, the philosophy not some of the moronic retoric Paul comes up with some doozies, someone should tell him to talk less. The “there are more black people than white people in prison for drugs” almost threw me over the edge. I actually wanted to put my hand across his mouth. Why he brought that up in a debate other than to help the other side is beyond me.

      Well, hooray! Ron Paul certainly has been obviously ignored and “blocked” from the media! i’m glad he’s getting some headway! He’s the only one that cares enough for this country to put it back on track!

    • http://aol Terry Pinzon

      Peggy, Ron is a RINO! Running as a libertarian he got squat for votes. His isolationist policies are similiar to what got us into both WW-1 & WW-2. His ignorant reasoning on drugs is apealing to the weed-heads that prop him up. Put them with the
      peachniks that want us to crawl in a hole, and you have a nut case. his views on the federal reserve and the constitution are diversions. NO way he could beat obummer!

    • http://www.pepper.net/ Pepper

      It is because most of the anti-Paul commenters, like Millicent for example, have nothing to say of substance. All they will do is spew hateful one-liners and call names. No matter how much time you spend trying to reason with them. It’s much easier just to click the thumbs-down button. Yours, I will not vote down because you actually used thought to write it and that would be rude.

    • oneAmerican

      When hear Newt tout his time as Speaker, I remember that HIS OWN party made him step down as he wasn’t ‘leading’.
      When Ron Paulies speak, I suddenly think I’m in a tropical forest filled with programed parrots.
      Perry? Will let you know when he grows up.

      While I cannot get super hyped on our choices, I AM ESTATIC that our White House will be ‘we the people’s’ again. As a matter of fact, I’ve been calling around for estimates from fumigation companies.

      You don’t have to “like’ a candidate for them to be effective. I mean it isn’t like you’re crawling in be with…Just make sure you don’t take the easy out & stay home on election day

    • GaBullDog067

      Dear Carol, the “Tea Party” was founded around Ron Paul after his 2008 run. So you are highly confused. What is you object to The U.S. Constitution, The Bill of Rights or sound money? Get a clue.

Where does it stop with these guys… Say goodbye to your family again cause Santorum will have you going into Iran…then Syria…ect. It never ends! Israel can take care of themselves…just ask Netanyahu! Look…if Israel needs our help we will provide it. Let me ask you just one question….where is Ron Paul CONSTITUTIONALLY wrong? I beg anyone to tell me! If you cant provide me with that answer then…my friend. You are against the Constitution which you and I both agreed to uphold.

    • Paul

      A vote for anyone except Ron Paul is a WASTE!!!

    • BHUDDA

      Ron Paul is a Rhino first class . He lives in the 60′s and marches to the beat of his own drum ,as for the Tea Party , stupid is what stupid did . Romney isn’t a conservative , Santorian is too honest and Perry isn’t salf on the streets without a strait jacket so it comes to Newt . Newt can beat obama and represent a far more different government than the rest and he has experience in recession breaking so he’s actually the onley choice we have . It’s come to choosing migrains or hymrodes .Not much of a choice.

    • GaBullDog067

    • Livefree1200cc

      We are going to vote – just not for Santorum, Gingrich, Romney or Odumbo. No one ever said they weren’t going to vote. Ron Paul gets my vote no matter what party he has to run.

    • Johnnygard

      Livefree, “No one ever said they weren’t going to vote”? That sure sounded like what Mike up above said he would do if Ron wasn’t the candidate, and I’ve seen a lot of Paul supporters say they will vote third party or not vote.

    • Jill

      Johnny I wish that was true. I choose Ron Paul because he stands for the original Constitution. “Anyone” is not better than Obama, “anyone” might not believe that we need less government or that we need to follow the constitution. Read about JFK just before his assassination/murder what were his last speach/speaches about? Everyone needs to vote even if you think it doesn’t mean a thing.

    • http://www.rescueattempt.com Jim Bancroft

      I disagree, to not vote for someone who is as bad as the other choice, is to not vote for that which is bad.

      Romney is an uber liberal, I am from New England and hearing him try to out liberal Ted Kennedy was shameful in his debates. Newt voted for multiple gun control measures in office and got caught with a floozy in 1998 when we needed him most, Perry is soft on Islam and cozy with CAIR, RONULANS are just plain insane and unaware of how immature and immoral their defense of Paul. I wanted Bachmann but now she was abandoned by Conservatives, we areleft with holding our nose for Santorum.

    • http://www.rescueattempt.com Jim Bancroft

      If You are going to call yourself a Christian and then also claim you are for the Constitution, then voting for Ron Paul is a sin.
      ROn Paul has openly claimed that as long as people vote for it, he is okay with:
      Legal dope
      Legal heroin
      Lowering the age of consent between homosexual men and boys
      GOOGLE
      Ron Paul prostitution
      Ron Paul age of consent
      Ron Paul legal heroin

      NO Christian would ever support sin if they wer following Jesus Christ, Ron Paul would freely support sodomy, drugs, prostuitution, and cloak himself in the Constitution and call himself a Patriot.

    • Carol Small

      Than you will either waste your vote, or better yet don’t vote. This is a do or die situation, hold your nose and then pay close attention to all elected officials.

    • Millicent

      Eon Paul is a traitor liar and pile of trash. He is a LIBERTARIAN. That makes him a RINO. He does not have America’s best interest at heart. He is more destructive than Obama. I would never vote for anyone as low as this vile evil man.

    • Jill

      Where did you get your information from the media? Have you lost your mind or maybe you are brainwashed into believing that Ron Paul is no good. Ron Paul an antiamerican? Newt Gingrich you must be crazy. You need to look at the original Constitution and realize we no longer abide by it. If you feel so strongly maybe you should choose to live somewhere else. We are supposed to be “the land of the free” we are no longer free. They tell us what to eat, that we must have insurance, we must be drug tested, we must pay taxes, we must work. Since when do we need a “mommy government” I am able to make decisions by myself, I do not need someone to tell me what to do. I want our freedom back. I will vote for Ron Paul as he will do his best to give it back to us.

    • McClarinJ

      You should spend a little time in this question: Is he doing God’s work? He is a very humble, very courageous man. He risks his life by going against the establishment. Watch a few of the THOUSANDS of videos his supporters have made about him and posted on YouTube and you may see a different man than the media and right-wing and left-wing establishment pundits are describing.

      I am in total agreement that a vote for Ron Paul is a wasted vote because it is evident that he would not be able to successfully compete in a debate with Barry. Actually, I don’t believe it really matters that much, because of the way Congress has enabled Obama to achieve such a government power-grab. Our POTUS is not going to give up the reigns of power just because it may be the popular will of the people. I beleve he will find a very good reason to declare martial law and suspend all elections. Then we better brace ourselves for rapid transition into the New World Order!

    • Janet

      I still haven’t made up my mind, but I would like to know this:
      Which law passed in the last twenty years has been good for America?
      If Ron Paul has only voted for one law that has passed in the last 20 years, then that’s another reason for me to vote for him. Congress is not supposed to pass laws to give us things, or give us rights. They are supposed to leave us alone!
      Here’s another thought: The biggest reason I hear for not voting for Ron Paul is that it is a wasted vote. No vote is wasted.

    • Scott

      Well, It sure seems like you people are drinking the same old cool aid, you all seem to believe what people are telling you to belive, do your own homework and don’t let to media control this election, So why is Ron Paul so far out there? His view on foreign policy he feels that we need to take care of the homeland FIRST not last, keep our noses out of other countrys business we don’t need to police the world,is the world any safer now because of us sofar? we need to help our Allies when needed and defend our Country First and formost, what is wrong with finaly putting our Country FIRST for once we wouldn’t even have these foreign interests if we used our own energy but thanks to special interest environmental lunitics we won’t these people are the ones we need to beware of, all Ron Paul wants is for the Constitution to be restored and the Government to be put back in it’s place, and leave us alone to live as the founding fathers belived! And the ONLY reason Ron Paul has only passed one bill is it is ONE man against the rest of these political Whores He is the only one who has consistantly stuck to his guns through thick and thin, the reason the Republican party wont endorse him is they are affraid just like the Dumbocrats that he will do just what he says, Audit the Fed, cut Government spending, balance the budget, bring home our toops, seal the boarder, and restore America to the original vision of the founders, Man that just sounds horrible a Country that works for us, all you sheep better make up your minds this is Americas last chance Obumer needs for more years to finish us off and Romney is cut from the same cloth, as well as Newt and Santorem why do you think it is that Romney and Newt have been shoved in our faces so steadily, they are the establishment second choice if Obumer doesn’t win WAKE UP! We have been and are still being lied to.

      having a strong military at home is what keeps us safe at home. He did not say we would not fight overseas,he said it would only be done with congressional approval.why should we provide a permanent free military to the world at a cost of billions to the American taxpayer. for example if Germany wants our troops they should pay us for their service

    • Devil Dog, USMC DAV

      You know Harry,get a grip. AS FAR AS THE VETS VOTING FOR pAUL, MAKES ME SICK. EVIDENTLY, THEY WERE NEVER OVERSEAS AND PROBABLY DRAFTED. I JOINED THE USMC AT 17,WENT TO KOREA, AND DID MY PART. AND IF YOU PEOPLE DON’T THINK THEY WOULD LOVE SOMEONE LIKE PAUL, THINK AGAIN. IF HE GOT ELECTED, YOU WON’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THE SOUTHERN BORDER, BUT OUR CITIES BEING ANNIALATED WITH NUCLEAR DSEVICES FROM IRAN AND NORTH KOREA, WHERE THE NUTJOBS ARE IN CHARGE. THEY ARE LAUGHING AT YOU KIDS AND AM SURE THEY WOULD BE DELIGHTED TO SEE SOMEONE LIKE PAUL TO GET INTO OFFICE. THEN YOU CAN KISS YOUR IPODS,UPODS,CRANBERRYS, (THAT OUR MESSIAH RELIES ON) GOODBYE BECAUSE YOU’LL BE SPEAKING ARABIC, OR CHINESE IN NO TIME AT ALL. I JUST WISH YOU KIDS WOULD STOP LISTENING TO YOUR LIBERAL PROFS AND GET REAL AS WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THIS COUNTRY.

    • Bon

      You so right ron creepy paul is a sick mentally disturbed idiot!!!

    • Phyllis

      Personally, I believe Paul is such an extreme Isolationist that if he were to be elected, we definitely will all need to get the Rosetta Stone lessons on arabic or chinese because we will have to learn one of them. Let’s see – chinese because they practically own this country financially, or arabic because they will come after us even harder were we to pull back and hide our collective heads in the American sand. I would rather fight our wars overseas, and I want someone in the WH who will tell China “thanks but no thanks” to more loans. Get a grip, America! Ron Paul will cause this great nation to explode in one way or another! All of you Paul supporters remind me of the hippies in high school back in the early 70′s. Jeesch! Haven’t you grown up yet?

    • Patrioticnut

      Jeb, you have hit on a crucial point. To expand upon it I would point out that that new law was passed by congress by a large majority. What it actually means is that now they can retain power by saying anyone who challenges them is a terrorist and the law now makes it a lawful order to any military person to detain you or I. Remember the part of the constitution that grants the citizens the right to reform or replace the government? Now null and void! I wrote my congressman yesterday about that very thing, everyone needs to ask the same of them.

    • warrior07

      Harry, IRT “having a strong military at home is what keeps us safe at home.”
      Title 10, USC, makes it illegal to use the Military within the US borders except for Martial Law situations. Do you really want the USMC patrolling the streets or delivering the Mail?

    • Millicent

      Ron Paul said Bradley Manning is a hero, 9/11 is our fault, and is a racist antisemitic lowlife, He said we shouldn’t have been in WWII. Why would anyone support such a vile pile of trash like Ron Pal. In another age, he would be on trial for treason. Ron Paul is Obama’s best support weapon. RON PAUL A NATIONAL DISGRACE OF THE ILK OF BENEDICT ARNOLD.

    • Jill

      Okay Millicent I can now see that you definitely do not know your history.

Would you like it for another country to do that to us? I am beginning to think you might be antiamerican. Please read the Constitution, see what it says and understand what it stands for.

    • Phyllis

      Jill, YOU seem to be the anti-American here. While it is true that the Constitution states that our armed forces are for the defense of this nation and her people, you must understand that taking the fighting in wars to THEIR territories us MUCH better for all Americans than fighting them here on our own shores. Remember 9/11? Do you want that to happen on a continuous basis by calling our great military members home to simply protect our shores? Wake up! War is truly hell, and I would rather it be somewhere else than here where my family would be subjected to constant fear of being blown up by a bunch of islamic lunatics! Take the fighting to their backyards, not mine!

If you believe then you need to vote for Ron Paul he will help in our move to where we want to be and that is out of the hands of the Federal Reserve (private company)Bank and the corporations.

      Wow another idiot. Ron Paul would keep me home on election day. He is worse than Obama. He is a traitor and every time he opens his lying lips he reveals how much he hates America. Ok folks, which vial of poison do you want to drink from Obama or trash pile Ron Paul?

      ltjg you need to pull your head out of your backside, a vote for anyone other than RON PAUL is a vote to continue the same old bull crap thats been going on for decades!!!!!

    • Millicent

      Take Ron Paul and the rest of you swarm of idiot locusts and get lost. Ron Paul is despised by most people who can think. He is a national disgrace and a traitor to America.

    • GaBullDog067

      “A traitor to America”. And where do you get that non-sense? because YOU say so? You are competely dilusional. Nothing could be farther from the truth.

    • Phyllis

      Get a grip on yourself! Ron Paul – patron saint of the peaceniks and hippies who haven’t grown up from their early 70′s teenage days. Sure, I want peace…..but you have to be strong in order to have peace. Grow up!

    • Joe

      You must not get out much. I am a vet and I am voting for Paul. Paul is also vet and has an exceptional record of supporting the military and the VA in congress.

      You need to talk far less and learn more.

      Ltjg,

      You’ve got that right!

      LOL

    • Phyllis

      Thank you, thank you, thank you. You, at least, seem to be a pretty mature individual. My husband is retired Navy, and neither of us would ever endorse Ron Paul.

    • Mike88

      You seem to make the claim that if Ron Paul was President and he brought all of our troops home and used our troops if we were attacked here at home in the United States that we would be defenceless.
      If you remember anything about our history you may recall that the United States was attacked many years ago by the Japanees Air Force who attempted to render our Naval Fleet of Vessels in Pearl Harbor useless by bombing and destroying them mercilessly, apparently what you failed to remember though is the reason that the Japanees bombers and their Naval Fleet did not go further inland to attack our mainland here in the United States and bring troops with them is because of 1 reason, that reason is that at that time almost all 300,000,000 of our citizens were armed themselves with their personal weapons including pistols, rifles, shotguns, and other forms of weaponry they might of had. The Japanees military knew this and did not want to take on 300,000,000 citizens who were well armed because they knew that we would defend our nation in case of attack the same as we would today as well.
      We the United States of America is one of the very few nations in the world that have a 2nd Amendment which allows our citizens to still be armed. That is one reason that an attack of foreign military forces here in the united states is not likely. You need to remember this when you bash Ron Paul about his foreign policies, American people would defend their homes, communities, and their nation against an attack.

    • GaBullDog067

      Our Troops support RON PAUL. Period. If you think Paul’s foriegn policy is wrong then you have been brain washed by the WAR MACHINE and those talking heads that never get a damn thing right on TV. (not directed at you Mike)

    • Retired Marine MSgt in Marana, Az

      Mike88,

      If you had done some research you would know that in 1941 the population of the United States of America was, per the census, 133,402,471. That’s a far cry from 300,000,000.

      LOL

    • Retired Marine MSgt in Marana, Az

      Mike 88,

      Just by way of comparison, in 1941 the population of Japan was 127,288,416.

    • Phyllis

      If you will remember your history correctly, you will know that it was our country’s forced sense of isolationism that allowed the Japanese military to think they could attack our Naval Fleet in Hawaii and get away with it. They found out soon enough that we as a Nation would fight back. Today, however, it is not a foreign military attacking us – it is a group of islamic terrorists who deal in hit and run tactics. While we can seek them out and destroy them at a great cost to American military lives and great expense, we do not have the ability to always catch them before they strike. Unless, of course, we get to them in their own homes first. Only through President Bush’s implementation of “First Strike” actions have prevented any more 9/11 strikes against us. The failed attacks were only made so by the stupidity of the attackers and quick action by Americans.

  • keith

    @Jack: You are 100% correct.

  • keith

    @Luis: I have all the guns and ammo I need, however, Ron Paul has never said he would dismantle the military. There is nowhere you can point to where he said he would gut the military. He did say he would bring the troops home and use them to secure and defend our own birders instead of other countries. What a novel idea.

    • egadsron

      That’s called Isolationism. Wilson tried it in WW I. Didn’t work.

    • Millicent

      You live in a dream world if you support this pile of trash. Ron Paul serial usurper of Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution for 24 years. Proven leadership ability 1 bill passed in Congress? Ron Paul say Bradley Manning is a hero. Ron Paul says we shouldn’t have been involved in WWII. Ron Paul and his racist newsletter and antiSemitic vitriol. RON PAUL IS OBAMA’S BEST CAMPAIGN STRAGEGY. Take that lowlife pile of excrement and flush him away where all such matter is dispose of.

  • DickC

    While my political strategy thius year is A.B.O. but I’ll have to admit that I’ll have to hold my nose to vote for him. As for vets, his isolationism will lead us into more war perhaps even a global type conflict that will parallel WW-II not isolated events like we have been fighting.

    • harry

      how is maintaining trade and communication with other countries isolationism? he said he wants to stop sending billions in foreign aid to other countries and quit telling them how to run their affairs. does it make sense toy you to aid Israel and give their enemies three times as much.why should we tell Israel what they can do,it is their country not ours.Even their leaders have said they don’t need our military.

    • Millicent

      I guess there is just no fixing stupid. RON PAUL IS A TRAITOR THAT SHOULD BE HUNG FOR TREASON.

      “I guess there is just no fixing stupid” You must have been looking in the mirror when you wrote that one. Good call!

  • StephenV

    I support Ron Paul because he will bring out troops home. He will secure our open borders. He will sign away over 30,000 unconstitutional executive orders and mandates. He will reduce the size of the federal government and return power to the states the way The Constitution says it is to be. The Constitution and The Bill of Rights was once considered the greatest document ever written. It was a creation based on a belief in God. This precious document has been dissected and literally torn apart by all three branches of our federal government. Ron Paul wants to bring those abuses to a screechin halt. So does Allen West, Sen. Davis, Lt. Col. Oliver North, Mario Rubio, Michele Bachman, Jim DeMint and Rand Paul. Thousands of our troops, a bunch of red-necks, educated and concerned young people, retired people like myself, and a host of republicans and democrats all want some positive changes also. The Romneys, Santorums, Gingriches and Huntsmans and Obama and Clinton followers just refuse to understand that our lives are so much better when we live with the attitude of existing within the framework of The Constitution and The Bill of Rights as written. The idea that The Constitution is outdated or obsolete is listening to a corrupt media and groups of people that do not have our nation or it’s peoples best interest in mind. There are a bunch of people right now and more will follow that will see the destroyers of America for wat they really are. Traitors and turncoats! Avote for Ron Paul is a vote for individual freedom and liberty. Thank You and God Bless America!

    • Harland Wyvell

      I would bet very few of these Ron Paul supporters know anything about what the Libiteran Party actually stand for. How about freedom to shoot up whatever drugs you want, How about prostitution, against the marriage ammendment, anti-military, hide behind our own borders and wait for WW3, silly ideas about going back to the Gold Standard. These are all ideas Ron Paul and his associates would like to see. Our standard of living would rapidly disappear under his leadership.

    • Chris

      You know, all these people who say they believe in what the founding fathers wanted for us, but keep the war rhetoric going really are going against that very ideal. Look at Washington’s farewell address. Read the part about foreign entanglements again. If you think that they are attacking us because we are free, your missing the point. They are attacking us because we have been messing with their governments for over 50 years. Look at all the CIA covert ops that happened over there back in the 50′s. Look at how we are trying to police the world. It’s not sustainable and it goes against every ideal that Washington of Jefferson had for this country. I am a veteran. I have been all over the middle east. I have been to south-east Asia and Africa as well. I’ve trained with Israeli special forces. They all ask the same question. “When are we going to mind our own business?” Look past the propaganda that comes forth from people like Hannity, Levin, and Rush. Wake up! They are using scare tactics on you. You know every time we sanction Iran, the people that are there fighting for change get drowned out because we are a real threat to Iran. It’s the same thing that happened with Iraq. We knew Iraq had WMD’s because we have the receipts. They didn’t have them anymore because they used them all on Iran. There are powers out there that are using our government in order to control their interests in oil. And btw, if Iran ever went after Israel, it would be the biggest mistake they ever made. Israel may look small on a map, but they know how to take care of themselves. They don’t mess around.

    • Retired Marine MSgt in Marana, Az

      StephenV,

      Unfortunately, Dr. Paul can’t do all that you say he would. He must have the majority, in some cases a super-majority, of both the House of Representatives and the Senate.

      That’s why we have three branches of government, so one branch can’t dictate.

      LOL

    • Livefree1200cc

    FYI…. Ron Paul has been a Texas Congressman for 23 years. In that time he has introduced 620 pieces of legislation. One (that’s 1) has passed & become law. It was a bill that asked the Federal Government sell the Old U.S. Customs house in Galveston, Texas to the Galveston Historical Society for fair market price. It passed unanimously. He’s a real shaker & a mover alright. He campaigns that he “is not responsible for a single piece of pork barrel legislation”. Duh. These guys are all nothing but CLOWNS.

    • harry

      he proposed legislation to rein in fannie and freddie to avoid a housing crisis in 2002,congress said it’s not needed,who was right.he predicted the banking crisis in 2001, years before anyone else.sorry his ideas didn’t go anywhere but who was right

    • harry

      he was against tarp and the debt ceiling increases he’s against spending billions on mosques around the world.he’s against the dream act. he’s in favor of a strong military. he wants to reduce the number of fed agencies and return power to the states.he wants to return to the gold standard.sound like all good things to me

    • Retired Marine MSgt in Marana, Az

      harry,

      “he’s against spending billions on mosques around the world”????? Who is spending? Maybe the Muslims? If they are doing it with $$ they got selling us oil, who are we to tell them how to spend it.

      Oh, I get it, We can tell them how to spend their money, just like our government can tell us that we must buy insurance.

      Get a life!

    • Johnnygard

      harry, You just made our point. It doesn’t matter what he is FOR OR AGAINST because he is not a leader and hasn’t accomplished ANYTHING WORTHWHILE in 23 years.

    • Roswell Evans

      I believe he’s done 1 more bill then obama. And look how he turned out. Boo He’s (Paul’s)a real go getter. If our congress doesn’t listen to him, why want foreign powers listen?

    • kate

      Let me ask you? do you think this country is headed in the wrong direction? do you think the legislation passed in congress is the problem? Then Ron is most definitely not part of the problem. Go read the Bills he has tried to get passed. I believe they all call out so form of corruption or something unconstitutional. So why would these elected officials vote for them when their passage would end the free lunch?

      Think about it.

    • Roy

      Kate i am pleased to see some one that understands if some good polices had gotten passed be a man that tried to get it done WE would be better off.
      God Bless THE USA and RON Paul.

    • Paul

      gml-So you are saying that all of the other 535 in D.C. have done such a marvelous job? They have driven our economy over a cliff by letting all of Americas manufacturing jobs go abroad and fighting wars for profit that make a few wealthy at the expense of everyone else!!!

      Perhaps if we had more like Ron Paul in Congress things would have been different and maybe even better than the mess the U.S. finds itself in today?

      That Ron Paul is NOT like the others, kinda gives new meaning to twisted perverted logic and reasoning that apparently some folks can’t grasp. . .

    • Johnnygard

      Compare Newt’s Record to R. Pauls non existant record.
      GREAT record: Newt Gingrich is the architect of the Contract with America that led the Republican Party to victory in 1994 by capturing the majority in the U.S. House for the first time in forty years.
      Under Newt’s leadership:
      1. Congress passed the first balanced budget in a generation, leading to the repayment of over $400 billion in debt.
      2. Congress cut taxes for the first time in sixteen years and reformed welfare, leading to over sixty percent of welfare recipients either getting a job or going to school.
      3. Congress restored & strengthened defense funding & intelligence capabilities, an action later lauded by the bipartisan 9/11 Commission.
      4. In 1999, appointed to the United States Commission on National Security/21st Century, for national security challenges as far out as 2025.
      5. Helped save Medicare from bankruptcy, prompted FDA reform to help the seriously ill and initiated a new focus on research, prevention, and wellness.

    • Patrioticnut

      The last few comments by Paul supporters have summed up the problem with Ron Paul. If elected as president why do you think he would be able to accomplish what he has not been able to as a congressman? He would still need the backing of the majority in congress, which he would not get. Even though Paul may be right on a lot of things, and I think he is, he wouldn’t accomplish much because he could not lead congress to do anything. There aren’t enough like him at the present time to effect the needed changes.

    • Illy

      Simple, as President he can go to the people and point out the ones that refuses to comply. None of those losers on the hill want to be pointed out…And voted out

    • Bob

      Therein lies the problem. It is not all about the presidential race only but about getting the House and Senate as well. If we conservatives can capture all three branches of government with Ron Paul (or any other conservative)at the helm I believe we will see a lot of positive change. Ron Paul, to me, is a voice crieing in the wilderness. Nobody is perfect but in my opinion Ron Paul is right on conservative principals more then what I see out there right now. I am not a Ron Paul supporter, I would have rathered preferred to see Sarah Palin run. I see so much bashing going on within our own ranks it is sickiening. Why don’t we just listen to the candidates and make up our own minds without tearing them down. The LIBS will do that for us.

    • http://foehammer.com Foehammer

      Let’s say President Paul doesn’t get the full support of everyone in Congress. Those that do not support him will be one thing. Others that go against the Constitution will be another. Ron Paul will be that barometer. Good luck to the traitors. They will not get re-elected like they have been doing for far too long, and that’s one of the greatest reasons to put the Doctor in the Oval Office. The American People will have the blinders fully removed with RP’s guidance and leadership and then many criminals will be routed from Washington, DC. Long overdue!

    • redjacobson

      I do not care about Dr. Paul’s age…..he is young enough for me. He bikes 10 to 15 miles a day!! Its his brain that is youthful and so positive. In my youth, I did not always listen to wisdom but now I am older and I prefer Dr. Paul. Stay informed fellow citizens – the veil is lifting for the restoration of America is now at hand.

      Yes he has a nice little game he plays to bring home the pork. First he sticks it in the bill and then he votes NO. Then he sasy I never voted for earmarks, knowing full well it would pass without his vote. He is #4 for bringing home the bacon. This is how this lowlife traitor pile of garbage keeps getting reelected. He is a total fraud and dirtbag. I despise Ron Paul He is Obama’s best campaign strategy.

    @Tess: Romney didn’t rsise taxes, just bragged about raising $240 million in “fees” while in office. Does that sound familiar? Raised MA spending by about 7% the year prior to leaving office and over 10% the year he left office. Santorum has voted against most, but not all tax increases while in the Senate. However, he did vote for plenty of spending increases. Gingrich did get some soending reductions but we also had tax increases while he was in the House. Perry I don’t have a whole lot on but I do know the Texas debt is second in line to CA.

    • harry

      check again, he did raise taxes onbusiness

    • Millicent

      The RNC is still carrying a grudge against Gingrich because HE VOTED NO TO BUSH 41 TAX INCREASE. He cut welfare spending. He had a balanced budget for 4 straight years. He made Clinton move more to the center. He went against the RINOS AND DEMS. He orchestrated the Republican takeover of the House after 40 years of Dem control. I would say he has a proven Conservative record. Paul is a total fraud and a traitor. I would never in a million years cast a vote for someone worse than Obama.

  • Richie

    Ron Paul was never in this race to win but to only make his self serving points. In his own words he said I don’t see myself in the White House.

      What planet are you from?

That is what the Islamic Brotherhood is doing throughout the Middle East. Iran and Achmanutjob is striving for. Do you even know what a Caliph is? They want sharia law throughout the entire world. And Iran’s nuclear program is only a step along that fight. God help us from people like you and them.

    • Steve

      You are absolutely right about the push for a Caliphate, but I personally believe it will be sponsored out of Turkey. That said, the U.S. presence in that part of the world will only hasten the advent of this Caliphate. Our presence, and the constant imposition of sanctions on Muslim nations, has had the effect of radicalizing them and creating committed enemies to an extent far greater than we have reduced the threat by our presence, and the spilling of American blood, in that part of the world.

      There is nothing, I believe, that can stop the advent of this Caliphate. The best thing we can do is to strenthen the economic and social infrastructure of this county, maintaining a strong DEFENSE, but reducing the OFFENSE that we have gotten so used to in the past decade. If you believe the media, and it seems you do, we are now in the period, as Orwell prophisied, of “perpetual war for perpetual peace”.

    Unfortunately, Ron Paul is so far off the beaten track, that he won’t be attractive to a vast amount of thse who vote… Republicans, Undecideds, or moderate Dems.

    That’s what we have to think about. How could we get enough confidence from the groups I mentioned? We’re wasting our time with this well-intentioned gentlemen, unfortunately.

    I’m old enough to be on Social Security, but Ron Paul looks like he’s been old enough for some time. Anyone that would consider voting for him should think twice. Don’t you doubt this. His running mate had better be ready to lead on a moment’s notice.

    Frankly, I don’t have that “warm fuzzy” about this man, no matter how good or bad he might be.

    I have this fear that he’s an isolationist. That would be as fatal as what Obama is doing with our military now in the near future. Clinton and Carter each put us in jeopardy with the way they cut the military too.

    I do think though, that countries that support our being there should support us by paying for the service. At least the ones that normally would have the means. Right now isn’t good though, with Europe and other countries in dire straits. A graduated fee might be a reasonable approach, and individualized to each country.

      Think again! Dr. Paul can get the old anti-War hippies, the Rotten Rodham’s feminazies, the democRATs that are not card carrying CPUSA members and still smoke dope. Can Mitt get a one of these crossovers? NO!
      America does not trust nor like Mitt Romney!
      We hate Obama but have to vote in somebody to replace him with! There is no other choice but Dr. Paul! Obama or Ron Paul? There is no choice! Only one answer Ron Paul!

      Paul is even worse than Obama. I despise this old fraud. He should be tried for treason for all the antiAmerican vitriol coming out of his mouth. Ron Paul a FRAUD YOU CAN BELIEVE IN.

    • Paul

      Your kidding right? Ron Paul has lit a fire in the youth of America and pulls more independent voters that anyone else. Also there is a large group of Dems that will not vote for Obama again.

      There is a difference between being an isolationist and being smart enough to know that all of the wars are breaking the bank and not making us any safer. The U.S. spends more a lot more on defense than any other country.

      Its past time for America to take care of America, that means nation building right here at home. After all, how strong are we really when we are weak and falling apart at home?

    • Retired Marine MSgt in Marana, Az

      Pauk,

      You wrote ““After all, how strong are we really when we are weak and falling apart at home?”

      You think that our military is a reflection of the homefront? The present types of military operations are not suited to the use of our military might. What we are doing now is akin to the police going into a neighborhood in Los Angeles and ferreting the bad guys out from all of the law abiding citizens.

      If, Iran for instance, and God forbid it ever happens, would cause us to declare war on them, no holds barred, it would all be over in a week or less. There wouldn’t be anything left standing, or anybody left alive.

      Do you realize that just one of our aircraft carriers, today, has more fire power than all of what we expended in the European theatre during the 2nd World War?

      All of the world leaders know this and they respect, and fear, us.

      ZerØBama wants to emasculate our military.

      Get rid of him in November!

    • Millicent

      Anyone who support scum like Ron Paul is working for the DNC OWS or just brain dead. RON PAUL IS A NATIONAL DISGRACE.

    • Phyllis

      Dear Lord God of Heaven, I do believe we have found the original Hippie King! I come from a family of Military men – my father, ALL of my uncles (including 2 I never met who died at Pearl Harbor), my father-in-law, and my husband. All of them have served in wars – and I do not consider ANY of them to be warmongers. I consider them to be TRUE Men of Courage who have all been dedicated to the safety and protection of this great Nation and her people. They all would agree on one point – take the fight out there to prevent it from hitting home. HOW DARE YOU CALL ANY MILITARY PERSONNEL WARMONGERS!!!! THEY AND THEY ALONE HAVE KEPT YOU SAFE SO THAT YOU CAN MAKE STUPID STATEMENTS! Take your head out of your b u t t, put down your reefer, cut your hair, and act like an adult! President Bush took the war that islamic terrorists declared on us to them. Oswami realized once he was in office that we had to keep the war against the terrorists off our shores (and that is the only thing he has done right – Iraq and Afghanistan) and not allow it to come here again. I don’t suppose that you have noticed that we haven’t been hit again like we were at 9/11? The others who tried were ill-equipped and stupid! Now that Bin Laden is gone, the brains of that bunch is gone, too. Who set that all in motion? President Bush. And he and Laura continue to meet returning military personnel as they come home. Does anyone else? Just Oswami – once for a photo-op.

      I once wanted to be a hippie. My parents said “NO!” Now I know why…..they knew I would never grow up!

    • Paul

      “You think that our military is a reflection of the homefront”? So are you saying that America should be bullying everyone everywhere because our military is strong?

      Who is benefiting from America’s military being so strong, middle class Americans, or warmongering war profiteers? Where are the new schools and bridges being built, here in the U.S. or in one of the countries of our Noble Peace Prize leader un-declared wars? Is Washington’s plan to control oil/gas/minerals with our muscle, again to benefit a few while the rest of America looks for non-existent jobs?

      I agree with you, the current Commander-in- Chief needs replaced. So why replace with another Bush-Obama clone when there is a great need to take care of this Republic while we still have one. . .

      And thank-you for your past service defending America and all Americans’ freedoms (U.S. Constitution including the Bill of Rights).

    • Retired Marine MSgt in Marana, Az

      Paul,

      D a m n right! I’d rather have us “bullying” than have some Iranian whack job threatening us. That goes for any country. America first, to h e l l with the rest.

      My country, whether totally right, or wrong, is still my country. My allegiance is to The United States of America.

    • Phyllis

      My previous comments were directed to you, Paul, not Millicent.

    • Joe

      You talk a lot about feelings, and I don’t doubt that yours are authentic. But I encourage you to consider rationally if you want more socialist consensus, more crony capitalism, more government intrusion, more public debt, and more fixed 0 rate returns on your investments. Because if that is what you want then you can get that from any of the establishment candidates.

      But if you share a vision of a Jeffersonian republic as Regan did, then you also share that vision with Paul. And he alone has a consistent record of walking the walk.

  • old1

    Romney is almost just like Obama all the way to he being ineligible to hold the office of President because he was not born a natural born American citizen just like Obama. Obama’s daddy was a Kenyan Brit, while Mitt’s daddy George was a Mexican citizen when Mitt was born. Mitt’s Grand Dad moved the family down to Mexico to get a few extra wives. They were starting to crack down on that in Utah. If your daddy was a citizen of anywhere other than America you can never be natural born.If you are not natural born you can never legally be POTUS. So!
    Ron Paul to save US in ’12?
    or – ineligible puppets to further the New World Order. You choose America. I hope you’re smart enough to figure it out. Four more years of Communism will kill America!

    Luis, you have to stop watching Fox news! How many times must I warn you! You think because some Nona fide anti-Marxist like Sick Morris, a traitor and liar of epic proportions declares Paul a “liberal” this makes it so? I think not. Sick Dick would sacrifice every man woman and.child in America for one life in that corrupt little theocracy in the desert that his ethnic brethren stole a.century ago. Ron Paul is a classical liberal. He doesn’t believe in American exceptionalism or moral supremacy or any of the other propaganda codewords that you JudeoMarxist masters in the media use to feed your egos so that you will vote for their candidate and they can continue to economically rape and socially pillage the nation at your expense. They own you, my man. You are chattel.

    • awakenow

      Anthony Platt … I’ll give you this much. Dick Morris is a little weasel of a man. He will twist and distort in order to promote himself and his books.

      Remember that this weasel once worked for likes of Bill and Hillary and just for that reason alone, he should NEVER be trusted.

      And, yeah, we are all owned by the Fox News, CNN, Talk Radio, or any of the “talking heads” who tell us what to think and who to vote for … UNLESS we stop them by using this wonderful tool called the Internet to do our own research and to form our own opinions and beliefs.

    Luis, you have to stop watching Fox news! How many times must I warn you! You think because some bona fide former marxist like Sick Dick Morris, a traitor and liar of epic proportions declares Paul a “liberal” this makes it so? I think not. Sick Dick would sacrifice every man woman and child in America for one life in that corrupt little monoethnic, implicitly racist theocracy in the desert that his ethnic brethren stole a century ago.

He doesn’t believe in American exceptionalism or moral supremacy or any of the other propaganda codewords that your JudeoMarxist puppet masters in the media use to feed your egos so that you will vote for their candidate and they can continue to economically rape and socially pillage the nation at your expense. Look at the state of our own nation. We are in no position to be bankrolling the development of other nations or to be telling them what principles they must adopt. They own you, my man. You are chattel. They are playing for the worst in you, a bloodthirsty attitude and unChristian policies towards the middle east, through your own arrogance and quite typically human love of power. Paul is playing for the best in you, a love of freedom, tolerance and a sense of restraint, not to mention abiding by traditional liberal, not Marxist, just war theory, towards the weak around the globe. Paul’s voting record is the most conservative in congress across the board. That is verifiable. If you want to look into it you can. PS there is nothing conservative about war, not its brutal nature dependent on government power and not its expense.

  • Pam

    11 of 14 of Ron Pauls’ picks for advice concerning foriegn policy are from organizations funded by none other than “George Soros”. Not a good idea.

  • BarbC

    Folks grumbled about McCain being 72 and now they want to run a 76 year old against Obama… Are they nuts… Ron Paulshows his years by his actions… He is a ticking time bomb and his outbursts show signs of anger that comes with dementia. He will never beat Obama… actually the Republicans really have not given us a candidate that I believe can beat Obama. What is the problem…

    • Millicent

      Newt Gingrich would destroy Obama. He is the one true Conservative in the bunch. Trouble is the RNC is still holding a grudge against him because he went against them when he was Speaker. John Sununu is one of the leftist bunch trying to destroy him. So they shove Romney on us, who is a sure loser to the Kenyan. We are finished as a nation if Obama retains his stranglehold on America. Ron Paul is his best campaign weapon. Remember folks. Use your brain and listen to what lowlife traitor Paul say. He is more despicable than Obama.

    Section 1021 and 1022 contain language that gives our supreme leader, I cannot call him Commander in Chief the ability to order the detainment of anyone HE and HE ALONE deems a threat, by the military without due precess. This is a FACT and it would be considered an ILLEGAL ORDER which if followed would be a violation of the OATH to the Constitution taken by the military and others. Read the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights. There are many who will refuse this type of order but there are many that will follow blindly. May God have mercy on this country if he does.

      “RON PAUL is the only PATROIT running for office!!!!”

      Ron Paul will destroy this country more quickly than Obama has! Makes no difference if he fixes the Fed, the EPA, restores oil exploration and reinstates coal. By allowing Iran to launch and detonate a nuke, with its EMP, above the US, we will be ripe for the picking with 9 out of 10 dead in affected areas in less than a year. It’ll be like hyenas fighting for tattered shards of the late, once great, Old Glory. .

    • Morgan

      That’s right. It becomes a mute point what our country’s assets are if Ron Paul will not defend it & allows Iran to continue to develop nukes, etc. sending an EMP over us. In a year or less only 10% of the population would remain and most of those would be illegal aliens!drug carts & criminals who are mostly armed and have the PC laws on their side to protect them,IF adequate law enforcement remained.

    ‘This is why some Republicans are stupid”, I agree with that. “This is why some Republican bloggers are stupid”, I also agree with that too. The higher the “greed” factor rises among Republican businesses, the less Republican serfs get, the further to the Left Republican serfs lean. At some point Republican businesses, all 20 off them who are left, will finally see thru their greed tinted glasses and with their magical thinking attempt to re-invent capitalism. Right. Romney created 100,000 jobs, I also played lead guitar with The Who last summer? Prove it! On to stupid, Democrats don’t call Democrats stupid over any disagreement, only Republicans attack each other over goody-two-shoes, can’t we all get along issues. You consider the Wall Street Journal, Republicans? Rush is Rush, did you listen today to Rush? It was not pro-Romney. Let me interpret Rushs’ position. Romney is the easiest candidate for Obama to beat. A vote for Romney is a vote for Obama. Is this clear enough? I agree with Newt approach, Obama is going to Tebow Romney, and once Obama gets another 4 years, it is the end of the Republic.

After we get rid of obama and his knights or czars or whatever he calls them we can then work on saving our country. We can vote in Tea Party People and people who want to return the country to what it should be but first we have to win the White House!!!!See the total picture people not cut off your nose to spite your face. That will be the end of this country if you do that. Come together and stop all this name calling it makes us look like we are idiots. DOn’t you thing they have people reading this blogs for the White House and they are rolling on the floor laughing at the way we are name calling etc instead of saying we are standing together to fight for our country by taking back the White House and then moving on from there. Come on grow up. I am 78 yrs old and have never witnessed such division in my life. Obama started it and he is winning cause we are letting him. We are playing right into his hands with this vile stuff written back and forth. Why not show him we are decent people who want to take our country back.

    Elaine, I am glad to read your response that he does not speak for the majority of So Carolina republicans. I do agree with some of Ron Paul’s views but overall he is not someone who should lead our country. We need someone who is not so “Out there”. I am sick of hearing about Romney being a MOrman how about Obama being a muslim, which religion is more dangerous to this country. ?? I hope we can support Romney because at this point I think he has stood up well and can beat obama. Everyone in politics flip flops, show me one that hasn’t, like the worse one obama.
    Let’s not lose this election because of fighting within the party. Let’s get together. I am a tea partier from day one and one thing is we don’t want this. Maybe some tea party people do but the majority of the groups want to put winning first.

    • GaBullDog067

      So what is it about Paul’s domestic policy that you say you object to? Do you even know his stance on Immigration? He wants to cut off all hand outs to immigrants which will help keep them from wanting to come here for free medical and welfare. He wants to bring the troops home to protect OUR borders. What is wrong with that?

    • Phyllis

      Don’t you get it? Protecting our borders by taking the “fight” OUT THERE IS protecting our borders.

And 99% of them are out there, not in this country.

Do Ron Paul’s plan and stop all the welfare for them; think that might be easier? Guess you are another liberal progressive that doesn’t listen or research or you would know his plan for illegals.

    • Chuck

      Since the feds won’t move against illegals, the states must do so. Team Obama is making it difficult or impossible to have state cops check immigration status, so the only way left is for states to remove the magnets to illegal migration, including government benefits, social welfare and unemployment programs, free education, jobs, etc. I’m for anything states can do along these lines, and strong measures should be taken to ensure that illegals don’t get to vote!

  • Retired AF Sgt

    I wish Millicent would tell us what she really thinks about Ron Paul, I am one guy that will vote for whoever runs against Obama but for now the two best candidates i can support are Newt and Ron Paul, I have researched both their records extensively i believe that is better than listening to the leftist media, Anyhow, I tend to like whoever they dislike.

    • john j

      That’s my analysis sarg., Ron or Newt ! The rest are just a round a bout odipstick vote !

    • Lane

      I will vote for no other than Ron Paul. If RP doesn’t get the nomination, I will vote 3rd party. I’ve also researched all the candidates, and to me, Newt is just as bad as the rest. His record proves that he’s only conservative when he’s trying to get elected or his friends elected. Giving him the rein of so much power, would prove no difference between him, Obama or Bush… That’s just my opinion.

    • Devil Dog, USMC DAV

      Sorry sarge, but no Ron Paul. Unless you want free pot and destroy our military. I’m surprised a retired AF guy would go for him. Get some common sense. My vote is for Santorum, or Gingrich. They both say it the way it is. PEOPLE JUST CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!

    • Lane

      One thing about freedom, it gives one the option of utilizing something that is considered an “inalienable right” which is granted to all of us. If I want to smoke pot, I should have that right. And no government, including the state, should have that much authority over what I do to my own body. BTW, I don’t smoke pot, drink or do drugs. With that said, If I smoke pot and accidentally or purposely injure or kill someone, damage or polute someone else’s property, then I should be punished for my actions based on my actions. Not all teh factors involved in what led up to the crime committed. We already have laws on the books that are designed to prevent me from inflicting any unwarranted actions against others.. We don’t need more laws to prevent us for doing things that might lead to unwarranted actions upon others.

      With that being said, those that believe that pot should stay illegal, should also support a law against sex. Because sex leads to kids. Which leads to abortions, child abuse, more criminals, and more drugs addicts.. When the kids grow up, they might break the law. According to that way of thinking, sex leads to crime.

      We are a nation of “too many” laws.

    • http://x Washington22

      Retired, I think that Newt is our man. I don’t agree on Dr Paul, but no need to worry about him getting very far. He is only appealing to 10% or so. If South Carolina throws their suupport to him, it’ll give them a black eye and show once again, that these first states don’t speak for much of America.

  • http://twitter.com/matthewetchie Matt

    Im a veteran of Afghanistan. I don’t want to see us in another war created by fear mongers. Being controlled through fear is what tyrannical governments do…. And the government I fought for should echo the Iraq war, with NO WMD’S found. Ron Paul is NOT and isolationist, he only wants congress to have the power, and the people have the power of congress. But right now our representation has been stolen by the same people who TOOK OVER the Tea Party. RON PAUL IS THE CREATOR OF THE ORIGIONAL TEA PARTY. Get that thru you heads. And DON’T SAY YOU SUPPORT THE TROOPS IF YOU SUPPORT THE WARS, don’t speak for me.

    • john j

      Thanks Matt for your time and PATRIOTIC efforts ! Well said !

    • paulz

      thanks for your perspective here Matt as a Veteran. i am proud to call you an American and friend.

  • nee43

    Let’s keep in mind one of the main reasons the Repubs lost in 2008. We nominated an “old” politician that was way beyond his prime! And to run against a young, energetic, charismatic candidate! We did the same thing in 1996, when we nominated Dole to run against the young, energetic, charismatic Clinton. And we LOST both times. I remember when everyone thought Reagan was too old to run — and he was younger than Ron Paul is today. Look at how much our presidents change in just the first 2 or 3 years in office. It takes its toll.

    Ron Paul is too old to run — and needs to be a good campaigner supporting the Repub candidate. He has already announced he will retire from the House. At 76 he would be ready for retirement. Just think 8 potential years in office, he would be 84.

    We need to see his son, Rand, run for office in about 8 years. After we have a more successful candidate take office in January 2013!

    • dancer

      We don’t have 8 years to wait on Rand if we keep Obama or any of the other candidates running, other than Ron Paul. Our country will be down the tube if we get any of the other candidates and particularly Romney! Rand can run after Ron is done and keep our country going in the right direction.

    • john j

      Actually , I’ve heard that Ron might want Rand to run on his ticket !

    • paulz

      i would consider this a sign from God (well maybe not that dramatic)that we are on the right track if they run as father and son. i can think of no better ticket than the Pauls running as a team to reign in the terror imposed on the American people.

      Paulz, again, I gotta say, dream on………….

      good thoughts, nee43

  • Morgan

    It becomes a mute point what our country’s assets are if Ron Paul will not defend it & allows Iran to continue to develop nukes, etc. or sending an EMP over us. In a year or less only 10% of the population would remain and most of those would be illegal aliens, drug carts & criminals who are mostly armed and have the PC laws on their side to protect them,IF adequate law enforcement remained. We’d be back to the 1850′s, our enemies would love it. The only sensible choice is Rick Santorum!

    • dancer

      Another non-listener. Ron Paul does NOT want Iran to have a war but doesn’t want to go to war to keep them having one. It has been pretty well proven that they are not even building a nuclear bomb and that this is just more warmongering and media manipulation so we can go to war with Iran. It’s along the same lines as Bush’s “weapon of mass destruction” which were not there. We cannot afford another war and our war loving gov’t and pres candidates are chomping at the bit to go to war anyway. It keeps the military industrial complex and politicians rich at the taxpayers expense. Ron Paul is very strong on defense. Research before you make your false statements.

    • Rank

      I will vote for Ron Paul, if he is the GOP candidate. But, some of you are supporters absolutely scare me. Where did you get the info that Iran is NOT trying to build a nuke?
      STick with facts that you can prove.

    • mrcave

      Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta on Face The Nation,

      “Are they [Iran] trying to develop a nuclear weapon? Uh, no,” Panetta said, adding, “but we know that they are trying to develop a nuclear capability.”

      Is that proof? No.

      There are those in the intelligence community that say they “believe” Iran already has one, or two bombs. I would not doubt that they have acquired weapons from North Korea, Russia, or even Pakistan, rather than having built one.

      The latest IAEA report would seem to support that Iran has the technology, but presents no proof that they are building a bomb. There’s that word “proof” again.

      There is no proof, one way, or the other. Yet. For me, that’s just not good enough to ask our young men to die, again.

      Obama, and many Republican candidates, have openly called for a regime change in Iran. That is the true objective. If because of a nuclear threat, or an incident in the Strait of Hormuz, conflict is being sought, not avoided.

    • RioSam

      Regime change is their REAL goal..AND to get rid of the Private central bank of Iran..and install a globalists (rothschild) central bank..and because Iran no longer wants to deal in US dollars for their oil…those are the real reasons….doesn’t have a dam thing to do with them developing nuclear weapons..they know they are NOT at the current time..
      RON PAUL 2012

    • RioSam

      That is what the IAEA reported to the UN…so there are my facts..where are yours saying they are making a nuclear bomb.

    • Alden Wayne Dumas

      Wow…. Even if Iran had a nuke, They would never get close enough to use it, plus I’d lay money Isreal would take it out…

      Are you American? Act like it, grow some NADS

      Quit listening to the fear mongers

    • Lane

      Under a Ron Paul presidentcy, Ron Paul would not block Isreal from blowing Iran off the map. As it stands now, the US government has kept israel from going to war with Iran.
      Why? Because Iran has huge oil reserves. Some of the worlds largest. If Israel were to go to war with Iran, they might use nuclear weapons. Which would leave the Iranian oil inalienable rights and a huge portion of the country inhabitable for decades. No more drilling rigs, pumps stations, refineries or anything else.

    • Lane

      Where’s the edit button. I’m my recent comments, “Inalienable rights” should have been edited out. Not sure how that got put in there.

    • john j

      Morgan , I too have to comment on this one ! You must be retarded if you have read ANYTHING into what Ron Paul has said , and found him NOT wanting us to be a defensive SUPER POWER ! And Iran ?… Israel has like 400 nukes , and the MASSAD ! I think they can handle anything that comes down the pipe without us ramming our noses up everybody’s you know whats ! WE JUST MAKE A HELL OF A LOT MORE MONEY IMPOSING OUR CRAP ON THE REST OF THE WORLD ! 900 basses around the world ? don’t you think that’s a little bit EXTREME !!!!

  • Morgan

    And furthermore, isn’t is worth considering why the Russians and Iran have been reported to back Ron Paul??!! with campaign funds!!
    go to redstate.com and search on the words. It amazes me that few people have picked up on this!

    • Leon

      Where is your proof on that dumb one?

    • dancer

      B.S. But Russia and China will stand with Iran against us. Can we afford a war like that???

    • argoman

      not sure about the war part, China wants to use us, not kill us. if Iran used a nuke, or attempted to use one, it would be committing suicide. also, i think Russia still fears china more than us.

  • Pointdan

    The mere fact that Ron Paul continues to suggest he will run as a third party candidate and thereby give us Barack Obama another four years is reason enough to despise Mr Paul. We have a country to save. He should check his ego at the door. Run for the nomination. BUT if you lose, go away.
    NO Third Party run; NO MORE OBAMA ! The USA is more important than any of these people.

    • Patriot Diva

      While Ron Paul does have some libertarian leanings, he is running as a republican.

    • dancer

      And Ron Paul agrees with you that America is more important than any people and Ron Paul happens to be in very good shape. He would also have a V.P. that if anything were to happen to him would be able to lead our country on in the right direction. You are another misinformed person.

    • Rank

      And that VP is??????

    • Alden Wayne Dumas

      Well said Dancer.

      Wake Up America………

    • RioSam

      You must live under a rock…he has said “repeatedly” he has NO intention of running 3rd party….NOT GONNA DO IT!

    • http://x Washington22

      Ditto, Pointdan………………

  • HW

    Correction one person that supports tea party supports Paul, Tea party has no leaders

      NO WORSE THAN THE DEMOCRAPS. THEY HAVE HAD NO LEADER THE LAST 3 YEARS. BLACK PEOPLE WHERE I WORK SAY, “THE BRO HAS GOT TO GO”.

    • Samantha

      I love the tea party and what it stands for but I do have a brain and not going to run to the polls and hit the button they said they are for. Sorry Ron is not my candidate. If he changed his views on foreign nations and drugs…maybe.

  • Patriot Diva

    I live in South Carolina, and I am voting for Ron Paul in the primary. I did not vote for him in 2008 because I fell for all of the lies everyone in the media told about him. You will not get the truth from anyone in the media or even from your own brother in law. You have to go to his website. Listen to what he is actually saying when you listen to him speak. His views have been distorted and twisted by those who fear him.

    • Rank

      I never go to any candidate’s website for info. You need to do a lot more than visit their website, which is typically very one sided.

  • http://www.americagonestupid.com nvrpc

    Ron Paul will NOT be the next president of the USA. This dude is no better than Perot. He’ll stay in there to the end and split the vote only to get you Obama for four more years due to the fact there are so many idiots that wil vote for this loser and in the end will wonder why they got boy wonder and a future senator Michelle Obama to run your country. I just sitting here LMAO at all this. I say this again. Ron, Santorum and Gingrich need to get out now forcing the indepenents, to either vote for Obama or Romney. That should be there only choice at this stage in the game..

    • Leon

      Here is a little homework assignment for you… Do you have any idea how much liberal support Ron Paul is getting. Paul will split the Democrat and Republican vote and carry most of the Independents which according to my calculations equals President Paul.

    • RonW

      This is why Leon. Not all democrats think merging with the One World Global Government is anything close to rational. That why Dems are crossing over. In fact most are still Americans first and democrats second. And they are fed up with corruption and too.

      Many Demo’s and Repu’s, as well as Libert’s and etc. Know and have a faith in Some GOD. That’s part of the America our Forefathers envisioned in 1776. Both our founding fathers and GOD were overruled by a higher authority.

      That would be our hidden masters that used money, extortion, threat, blackmail and even murder to turn decent men into TRAITORS and SELL OUTS to STEAL AMERICA and her peoples DREAM.

      Those same HIDDEN MASTERS gave us in the same year THE I.R.S. and FEDERAL PERSONAL INCOME TAX. Both the Federal Reserve Act, and Tax Act of 1913. Were ACTS of WAR against We The People and America. As defined by the Constitution itself.

      The FEDERAL RESERVE is not a US Governmental Institution. It is a PRIVATELY OWNED and OPERATED FOR PROFIT Corporation. That is now known by all who have looked. The biggest FRAUD and ROBBERY to ever have taken place in human history. The very reason the framers put the managing, minting, and setting the value of America’s GOLD and SILVER money into CONGRESSES JOB DESCRIPTION. Is because CONGRESS is accountable to us. We The People. And by the very use of the words Gold and Silver their intent can not help but make clear their fears of FIAT money, and the perils associated with it. Reserved fractionalized money is not something new. The Muslim Sharia laws make lending money at interest a crime against GOD. Something NOT treated like a parking ticket. Our hidden masters have managed workarounds there too.

      Fast Forward 1931
      A bill introduced and perfected into law. gives Our Hidden Masters over at the Federal Reserve Banks an almost bullet proof legal firewall. Protects them from financial liability of any kind that might be caused by The Federal Reserve Act of 1913.

      Fast forward 1933
      A bill introduced and made law. The authorization to manage OUR money in 100 percent complete SECRECY! No questions allowed. And the band played on. It’s all downhill from here.

      Same year 1933
      The pukes persuaded our sitting president to issue an EXECUTIVE ORDER that turned, We The “Prudent” Peoples of America that saved for a rainy day into HOARDERS that are required under force of law to TURN IN our earned by sweat of brow, and pain of back GOLD and SILVER BULLION, and COINS. With the exception of collectables, vintage,and sentimental. To the FEDERAL RESERVE BANKS. And in return they would give us paper FEDERAL RESERVE NOTES. Note this law excepted BANKERS and OTHER COMMODITY INVESTERS

      Fast forward to 1963-1964
      President John Kennedy and his Brother BOBBY and Our US Attorney General are murdered. John, just two weeks after setting into motion his plan to take back America and We The Peoples money from the our hidden master over at the FED by abolishing it. The FRAUD and DECEPTION used to bring in its creation under the general peoples radar. The very name chosen “FEDERAL RESERVE” was a conspired, and used by design to create the Illusion of governmental association. And it should be noted to have worked very well until recently. It gets even sicker.
      To add insult to injury, and fire a warning shot across the bow of any person aware of this information and just how much America had been raped and robbed of her wealth. They had John Kennedy’s Profile minted onto the face of the 1964 SOLID SILVER DOLLAR. Which they started taking back out of our hands by withdrawing from circulation along with 50 cent pieces, quarters, and dimes. And of course they did give us back CLAD COPPER in 1965.

      Fast forward to 1970-1971
      Nixon convinced by the FED. in order to secure what little of the GOLD that is not owned by the FED and stored in Fort Knox Kentucky should be legally removed as the backing of America’s Gold and Silver Certificates since that would allow The FED to EXPAND / PRINT more money to fund the VietNam POLICE ACTION and COLD WAR Threats. NUKES, STRATEGIC AIR COMMAND and so on. The silver and gold certs. that people still had saved up under their pillows could not be withdrawn from circulation as worn or damaged dollars are. Nixon Complied.

      Google search DANIEL WEBSTER / America’s money. See wikipedia.

      If those of you reading this that are not afraid of the truth that is going to get even more putrid. Keep reading. The rest. just go back to watching I’m not the baby’s daddy.

      The tax act violates the constitution as at the time. We were NOT at war. Individual incomes taxes could be taxed for the funding of an ARMY. But to be terminated at wars end. Says the our US Constitution.

      Fast forward through, Watergate and ????.gates to 9-11-2001 and Bush Junior gives us The PATRIOT ACT! and on to 12-2011 And Obama takes an axe and add more damage to our US Constitution by signing the NDAA bill that will allow US troops to be used against American citizens. For you sleepers I would suggest the finding of a barf bag on continue reading this near your toilet. For those that think you know what I’m going to say. You only know a part of it.

      Many believe all this breaking and sidestepping of the protections our constitution provides We The People, that appear to be destroying our once great nation, have but one intention. That being, to turn The US as a broken nation and peoples over the UN and friends to usher in their already failing GLOBAL WORLD GOVERNMENT formerly known as THE NEW WORLD ORDER. that Bush senior called in his 1991 speech. A BIG IDEA While that is partially true. Most Americans that spend too much believing the crap their favorite political double speaking bobble heads tell them. And because of that. When somebody try’s to educate them to what is really happening the scratch their heads and decide to call those people wing nuts tin hats and etc. I would too were it not for this next and relatively new bit of information to make the light of day. After all. Our Elected officials would not do that to us right? In most cases that would be right. Would have been perfectly fine to make that assumption prior to 1913. What most don’t understand is just how insidious that ONGOING CRIMINAL ACTIVITY has been. And until last week. Neither did I. While We The People were all preoccupied watching, The Iranian People throw out the Shah of Iran, that we shoved down their throats, Iran Contra, whitewater, Spoogegate, and all the other gates, Kuwait, Seniors Iraq War, The hunt for Weapons of mass D”I”istraction, Taliban beating up their women, 911, and Bush Juniors War on Iraq another bill was introduced and signed into law. This law is what has a large number of our LAW MAKERS scampering about doing damage control and trying to find clean underwear to put on. This law provides our LAW MAKERS whose decisions can move the STOCK MARKET up and down. with special protections not afforded to other Americans where INSIDER TRADING is concerned.This is not trivial people.

      In a nut shell. We Americans could throw out every one of them. Hold an auction tomorrow for their seats. Make enough money to pay off our National debt. And look in the house chambers day after tomorrow only to find the same faces staring back at us. As we speak they are trying to undue that conveniant bit of underhanded nonsense.

      And the reason all this is happening is because one little old man. Who stands taller than all of them put together has drawn a line in the sand and said EFUCKINGNUFF! This man has beat his head against the wall for America. Not the America that is being led by the nose into doing the hidden ones bidding. That travel through the revolving back door at the FED, as they make their way in and out the revolving doors at the CFR, TriLateral and other places that spans oceans and reach all the way to Rome, London, Zurick, Columbia, Paris, Brussels, Berlin, and more.

      Ron Paul fights for the America that used to grow food, load it into military planes and boats and deliver to starving nations. Not the America that pays its farmers NOT to grow food and fills those planes with death and destruction for delivery to starving nations. And Ron Paul continues to fight for the America that once upon a time really was Kansas, and Yes when times got tough you could click your heals together to at call up memory’s of a nation that was at its core good.

      The RNC has an empty tool chest. No stallion in the stable. Nothing in the study but a malware infected pc. The laundry room needs activity. The powder room filled with pretty faces getting ready for the next debate. And a broom closet with open door, and a living room with an energetic old man cleaning up the remnants of a shattered wall hanging picture frame, and removing the glass shards from a copy of our US Constitution.

      And yet. Most of you sit and talk about the wannabees that the RNC and their media lapdogs want you to talk about.

      This is for John and Bobby Kennedy May they rest in peace.

      For those that really care about America. And want to take back from the scoundrels that stole her, and our self esteem 98 years ago. You need to put aside party affiliations and put on your. “I am an American hat” and get on board with Doc Paul and his growing ARMY of Patriots that have figured out that UNITED WE CAN STAND
      and know beyond doubt!. DIVIDED THEY WILL MAKE US CRAWL.

      America’s problems began in earnest began on 12-23-1913 when the FEDERAL RESERVE ACT was made law. America’s problems will continue until the moment that TREASON is abolished.

      You will be hearing from We The People Washington, Obama get out your pen and undue what is nothing short of TREASON. As defined in no uncertain terms by the US CONSTITUTION as an ACT OF TREASON Called the PATRIOT ACT, As well as the SEDITION you put your John Henry on by approving the N.D.A.A. with its embedded subsets that are defined as additional ACTS OF WAR with the intent to CAUSE HARM AGAINST THE COUNTRY and WE THE PEOPLE of THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and The UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION that CREATES, MAINTAINS, SUPPORTS and DEFENDS The SOVEREIGN INDEPENDENT COUNTRY known as The United States of America established and ratified by the several states in the year 1790.

      Note Conviction in a court of law of for Treason and giving aid and comfort to the enemy are hanging offenses.

      Attorney General Eric Holder. Standing by and allowing an ONGOING CRIMINAL ACTIVITY to continue with out attempting to stop it makes you at best negligent. And at worst guilty of AIDING, AND ABETTING AND AN ACCOMPLICE in a crime against the Peoples of the United States of America. By failing to act to end and or reduce the damage and harm said crime is continuing to cause. You may even be held liable for the additional damages. Unless you are the one holding the 9.3 trillion dollars Bernanke and friends can’t seem locate. I’d give that some thought.

      The historical, documented and other known facts that not only prove beyond doubt that The Federal Reserve Act made law in 1913 was a conspired, willfully executed fraud perpetrated against the peoples of the The USA.. It is now common knowledge that most, if not all of, We The Peoples elected representatives sent to Washington on our behalf since 1913 thru 2011 and even now are and have been aware of this. That list also includes All our Presidents and Cabinet’s, Attroney Generals and Highest Judiciary’s. The argument “What’s Done Is Done” Will not fly. Conspiracy, Fraud, Embezzlement, Extortion, Intimidation, and even murder are handled hundreds of times daily across the US and the world. The fact that the ongoing crime of the ages will have consequences world wide is not relevent if we are to remain a nation that promotes the Rule of Law. It is time to grow a pair and walk the walk. Or get out of Dodge. The people are coming out of the coma. You and everybody else in DC can smell it. And it scares you.

      Our children that drive our tanks, man our ships battery’s, and fly our fighter jets are also seeing thru the BS. There are still honest cops that care about their familys. There are still uncorrupted FBI investigators, State Police, Park Rangers, National Guard, Border Guards, Veterans, That are also smelling the stench that eminates from inside the Beltway and reaches all the way to the Big Island.

      Obama Get that Aircraft Carrier off of Irans Front Porch, Bring it home and give our kids some shore leave. Before its too late. All you has beens at the various good old boys clubs and think tanks like the CFR and such need to understand that you can not build a good foundation that will hold up anything if guile, deception, trickery, and illusion are the ingrediants used to make up the mortar. As can be seen now happening to your shining crown achievement known as the European Union vaporises and comes crashing down like the house of cards it is,

      The Patriot Act and This latest attack on our Constitution. That beautiful document will come shining through, and to our defence. Once People realise what the changes made to it were really ment to accomplish. That being the removal of its teeth where the protections enjoyed by We The People are concerned. While leaving the shell of the document intact just enough to give relevance to the very notion of keeping our legislative houses in place. NO CONSTITUTION = NO LEGISLATIVE HOUSES = NO AMERICA. And our Constitution defines that kind of attack on it as an ACT OF WAR Those taking part in this madness are in fact guilty of TREASON. got rope?

    • Lane

      Ron Paul came in 2nd place (which included Romney, Newt and Santorum) at the NH DEMOCRAT primary. The only one that beat him, was obama. Which means, that Ron Paul can take more votes away from Obama than the other GOP candidates.

  • tncdel

    No one as lousy as Ron Paul is on DOMESTIC national defense deserves to be in the White House. Please see:

  • Paul the Jarhead

    With so many comments in this thread I can only hope that mine will be read. Here goes..
    Given the field of GOP candidates it appears that the The People’s Democratic Socialist Party has chosen which candidate will “run” against their Imposter in Chief.
    The RNC seems to have abdicated their role as the Leftist Media conjured up decades old “scandalous behaviors” and launched attacks on the only GOP runner that had a shot at unseating The Imposter and the feckless gutless creatures that refer to themselves as ‘conservative’ mount their hippocritical high horse and cut the man loose. Not very smart of you supporters of the GOP because now we can kiss the nation good-bye. With character assassination alone you GOPs cut your own throats. Go ahead and usher in the final nails to the national coffin..GOP=Numbskull.
    My vote will go to Gary Johnson.
    Enjoy your subjugation you GOP fools.
    FEMA Camps for you.

    No matter what I am NOT voting for Ron Paul. If that means we keep Obama, then so be it as much as I hate him and woukld like to see him gone in so many ways.

    • http://x Washington22

      nvrpc, I wouldn’t go that far……….I hear your exasperation, I’ve got it too, where Ron Paul is concerned. He’ll never get the “nod”………..He’s too demented. Instead, concentrate on WHO you do like and how to get them elected. In my book, at this time, I’ll go for any of the other 3 men. Sure, I have a preference, but they are all so much better than Ozero it doesn’t matter.

    Why settle for less when you can have the BEST? NEWT 2012! PROVEN conservative record and experience with the boldness to taken on the GOP establishment, media, libs, progressives, commies, socialists, and Obozo machines. NEWT 2012!

    I am voting for Ron Paul. I wrote his name in last time and I will do the same if needed. If I vote for Paul my conscience will be clear. He is truly an American that wants to save his country from total destruction. We need to get back to our Roots and restore the constitution and Freedom that made this country great. It can be great again. We need a less intrusive government and run by people that respect the supreme law of the law, the constitution.

    • Alden Wayne Dumas

      AAAAAMEN….I will vote Ron Paul if the GOP pick him, If not I will vote Ron Paul as a 3rd party, If I have to I will write his name in……..END OF STORY

  • American Patriot

    I’m voting for Ron Paul as well. HOWEVER my main concern with Pual is he must attend a speech making schoole to eneabler himself to speak strongly and firmly. Obama is an excellent speak and with the aid of a teleprompter B.S.’s his lovers. Paul must learn to speak like Ted Kennedy, or Reagan or any of the other great speakers who know how to deliver their line of B.S.

    • ron b.

      Hey, American Patriot, GET REAL!! A vote for Paul (or as you misspelled him Pual–among other typos) is, in fact, a
      VOTE FOR OBAMMANATION!!!!! IF THAT’S WHAT YOU WANT, THEN GO AHEAD, He can’t win, and a vote for him is a vote
      to re-elect the WORST “LEADER” OUR NATION HAS EVER HAD!

      Below, are the reasons that I lost my apathy for the American Political climate.

      Here, we have before us, a man of founding father stature.

      And the facts listed below, are why I and you all, support this man.

      These facts however, are not known by most Americans.

      But it is my belief, that if most Americans, knew of these facts, then Dr. Paul would be in the whitehouse.

      We can continue to look for new angles to promote Ron Paul, or we can promote the truths that we all know, but that most uninformed people do not know.

      These facts below, are enough to ensure a victory in 2012.

      These facts below are what instantly grabbed my attention.

      These facts below are all we need to get Ron Paul elected.

      I know that some of you will say that this is “old hat”.

      But I an convinced beyond a shadow of a doubt, that most people do not know these facts below.

      Think of it people.

      Isn’t it true that these facts below, are the very facts that got you interested in the Ron Paul message.

      - He has Never voted to raise taxes.
      – He has Never voted for a federal restriction on gun
      ownership.
      – He returns a portion of his congressional budget to
      the treasury each year.
      – He has Never voted to raise congressional pay.
      – He has Never taken a government-paid junket.
      – He has Never voted to increase the power of the
      executive branch.
      – LESS government, MORE freedom. NO IRS!!
      – He voted against the Patriot Act.
      – He voted against regulating the Internet.
      – He voted against the Iraq war.
      – He weighs every vote against the written word of the
      Constitution.

    • TooToo

      And if these are such admirable qualities, how come no one, including RP himself, has mentioned them before??

  • david k.

    wow i don’t know how much longer i can read these comments on here.the same lame stuff over and over,hes a rino,hes a dem,hes a loon.just vote your concious and be done with it.i like newt,no one on no site or no tv ad will talk me out of it!but come the general election im voting against obama period!for the countries sake none could be worse than 4 more yrs of obama.equally important is voting for congress we must take both houses to stop or impeach obama if he does win,this to me is equally important.but no way am i going to be stupid enough to waste my vote by not voting so obama wins.

    • oneAmerican

      David I agree. And there are a number of seats up for grabs in both houses. Harry et al keep whining “Republicans are obstructionist” IF ALL will stay focused on the welfare of our country instead of instead of themselves, we can give it to’em in aces ! Not voting (to me) means too lazy or not giving a hoot. Let’s leave the whine ‘n cheese to the donkeys

    • Rank

      I am with you. What absolutely scares me is that many of the Ron Paul “supporters” have the same attributes, and use the same rhetoric as 2008 Obama supporters. It is my fear that they will string us along until November 2012, and then jump ship and run out to vote for Obama. I say anybody but Obama!

    • RioSam

      Well…I am a Ron Paul supporter and there is no way I would, or EVER did. vote for that long legged mac daddy. I am a registered Republican but am a Libertarian leaning Republican..

      Rank I’ll tell you what. There are a few fringe Paulbots out there. But know this We Will Not Transfer Our votes to the RNC’s Selection. We know what’s going on Last night Blazing in your face example. Ron Paul gets most sought after endorsement Senator Tom Woods and Every web site. NOT A PEEP. TV NOT A PEEP. NADA. All they can talk about is Romney and NEWT. Santorum, That is power in your face and the very REASON that DOC Paul has no say in how we vote. THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE between RNC or DNC They are OWNED!

      OUR WHOLE COUNTRY HAS BEEN BOUGHT AND PAID FOR. ABO non starter. And while I’m at it. Moderated? I am going now to unsubscribe from this site. And then onto facebook twitter and myspace to tell people about it.

    • TooToo

      It’s selfish people like you that will sink the ship. Can’t get your guy in? Well, let’s stamp our feet and REFUSE to vote for the RNC candidte that comes out on top. I guess the “United We Stand” doesn’t count in your case. Mark my words though, we will fall, “DIVIDED.” Those that care about their beloved USA will stand together – United with whoever is voted in to oppose bho. But if we lose, it’s because of selfish children like YOU!

    • Robin from Arcadia, IN

      TooToo… I held my nose and voted last election. I hope our candidate this time around is more worthy. Personally I think whoever is nominated, and I don’t think it will be Ron Paul, that they should seriously consider him as a running mate. It would sure unite the GOP and no more Obama!

  • Morgan

    Five big reasons why NOT to vote for Paul: The Russian press and Iran are backing his campaign!! go to http://www.redstate.com for details. 2) His age 3) only one bill passed in 20 some years so how would he be able to magically at this point start performing according to campaign promises 4) He is an isolationist from a national defense stand point and would allow Iran to develop nukes and/or launch an EMP 5) if no 4 happens, all else is a mute point! There are many more reasons why one should not vote for Paul. Come on posters feel free to add to the list.

    • http://x Washington22

      Morgan, you get a thumbs up from me……

  • JJM

    ATT Romney is my worst choice (other than BO) but I will vote for him if he is my only choice to defeat the POSER.
    My 1st choice is Paul for his Constitutional consistency and believe he is most likely to continue to fight for our fast eroding Liberty and Freedom. Who else even puts forth a realistic true Cost Cutting plan? Who else honestly believes in smaller federal government control over all aspects of our lives?

  • bernie cousino

    I am a member of the Tea Party. I am Christian.I am a United States Navy, Vet.

  • C.Davis

    I see the useful ones have drunk deeply from the smiling pitcher.They are either blissfully unaware or willfully ignorant of the fact that”Big Defense” companies like GE control the speech of their idealogues through stock options and other means too complicated to go into here.I guess the same goes for their awareness that Romney’s “venture capital” company owns Clear Channel. Fellow Americans, THEY LIE TO YOU. I don’t know how to be any clearer for you. They are laying out a strategy for you that gave Obama the White House over “Bomb Bomb” McCain in ’08. You should know that “lining up” behind the candidate will not give you the victory. It may get you close, but Obama’s camp owns the voting machinery, the only way to beat him is with a landslide and you must face up to the fact that Romney is not going to inspire that landslide. A silver spoon war monger with a similar agenda will not sway the nescessary hordes of independents and irate democrats to jump ship from O, There are just too many negatives for too many people., not the least of which being that he is purportedly a Mormon.
    You can see that Obama is drawing down in Iraq for just such a purpose as proving that he is not such a pospotus as everyone knows him to be, But it will be enough to overcome whomever the republican manipulators get the usefuls to dutifully line up behind, because most will give him as incumbent the benefit of the doubt, as occured in ’08.
    The only exception to that scenario is Ron Paul. With GOPers lined up along with the vast majority of independents(60% of voters self identify as such)who are sick of the dead babies laid at their doorsteps,unemployment,foreclosure,etc., added to the Democrat protest vote(11% voted against O in New Hampshire, R.P. got 2322 write ins!) Now you add THOSE together you have a landslide. Otherwise a good case can be made for a Ron Paul third party candidacy in the interest of the representation of the people, rather than of the oligarchical media. Which might result in a three way tie,and it could be anybody’s ballgame, but would at least accomplish the demise of the bilateral two party dictatorial system we’ve labored under for too long, and which many principled republicans will not support any longer, since the malmanaged GOP will be pushing up daisies.

  • http:Windowslive Kcatt

    Right now I’m leaning towards Newt. Definitely have some doubts about Paul. But right now there’s a lot going on in D.C. that would be cause for some fretting. That being these new proposed amendments to the Expatriate Act. Lieberman and Scott Brown seem to think we’re all stupid. What they propose could be used against all of us. Your citizenship could be taken away for just being against the present administration ; even. S 1698 as an addition to the present Federal regulations is nothing more then an assault on our Constitutional rights and ,,We the people. So get to it guys and bug your reps about it . Well at least while we have the freedom to do so.

  • don borrelli

    Some of you still have not heard Ron Paul’s message. I will try to convey part of it if you will keep an open mind and not root for you favorite neocon like it was a football game and you’re rooting for the home team or to the school you are attending. Dr paul is shaping his foreign policy based on the fact that the US is near bankruptcy. We have no money and all the other candidates are not willing to make actual budget cuts,they are only interested in cutting the increases in entitlements, but this does nothing to cut the national debt. The only way the US will remain a power in the world is to bring the budget under control which is something that all conservatives strive for. His solutions to this problem is to cut the military and stop fighting everyone else’s wars, bring home the troops and protect our borders to help Americans get the jobs that the illegals are stealing from us. Iran poses no threat at this time to the US. They cannot deliver a nuke to our shores even if they had one. They are a third rate power and we need not fear them. If somehow they attacked us, our navy for example, this would be an act of war and at that time he would declare war on their nation at which time he would move to totally destroy that country instead of sending ground troops fighting against an unknown enemy. The exact type of war we have been waging since Vietnam. If this type of policy is nuts I’d like your comments to tell me why you think it is.

  • leon ewers

    Mitt Romney, Sachs puppet, is not eligible to run for president. Romney is not a natural born citizen, his father was born in Mexico. We have to apply the same standards across the board. If Obama is not a natural born citizen because his father was born in Kenya then Romney is not either because his father was born in Mexico.

    • sidewinderaz

      If either his father or mother were not US citzens he may not be natural born. I think I read that his father had dual citizen status but not certain if that was or is recognized by the US if you are a US citizen.
      If true he is no more eligible than the current imposter in the White House.

    Willard Romney is not a natural born citizen. His father George W. Romney was born in Chihauhau Mexico.

    Barrack Obama is not a natural born citizen. His father was born in Kenya which was under British rule at the time making him a British citizen.

    Both Willard Romney and Barrack Obama are not eligible to be president as neither is a natural born citizen.

    Willard Romney is a member of the Pratt–Romney Family which is the name of a U.S. political family. It is linked by marriage to the Smith Family and the Matheson Family. Considered the patriarch is former Massachusetts Governor and 2012 Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who is also a cousin of Pratt descendant and 2012 Republican Presidential candidate Jon Huntsman, Jr. The family dates back to the 17th century in Connecticut, originating from William Pratt who served as a representative to the colonial legislature of the state for 23 terms. Aside from politics and government, their legacy extends into business and law, professional and college athletics, religion, the arts and sciences, architecture, philanthropy, and defense.

    I think this family has served this country long enough, what do you think?
